K-Pop (General Discussion)

Re: Korean Pop

Why must they ruin my Taeyang illusion by putting him in the real world! Tiny Taeyang..

I saw a picture on Flickr like 2 years ago, from an album of a tall model. There was a picture of Taeyang with him and you could see the top of the chair he was standing on.

I'm gonna erase these images from my mind.

And it's the moment you've all been waiting for, Jang Woo Hyuk's new MV for Weekend Night is out http://youtu.be/4-dwjqtaX64 The production is amazing but he ruins it with his autotuned voice.

The video is good and the song is okay. Is he releasing just a single or a mini album?

And this is really the moment I have been waiting for. He just took it off. King of K-Pop, this is the year of KHJ, Break Down is the release of the year, etc., etc.

Orange Caramel sold more than After School. Hahaha.

And Girls' Day is up there now aren't they. They might win a #1 before the year ends maybe.

It hasn't been an interesting day in K-Pop has it?

To make up for this i've decided to find a few "first win" video's of a few groups:






Brown Eyed Girls (aw Jea)

Big Bang


After School



CN Blue

SECRET (isn't that Eunji and Sera from Nine Muse's being MC?)


FT Island


I can't find KARA, Wonder Girls, Suju, Miss A or 2PM's first win's anywhere they've been pulled, I hate SBS sometimes.


Re: Korean Pop

I'm loving HyunA's Bubble Pop and Attention now! The latter should have been a full song!
Re: Korean Pop

This is really strange, but I never really liked Shampoo by After School. Then, about an hour ago it came on my itunes, I was like "this is a pretty cool song." I have been listening to it on repeatfor the past hour. A little late, I know, but better late than never. I officially love it.


Re: Korean Pop

I love you for loving Shampoo, but I love you more because of your avatar!

Thanks for compiling those. It's kind of funny to even see some of the boybands crying as much as the girls. Seems like a huge weight drops off their shoulders once they win.
Is a win a win or is there some kind of order, like a win at Music Bank is more prestigious than a win at Inkigayo? Does anyone know?

Also, I love watching videos of K-Pop mistakes (as long as they don't look too painful) and in this video I can't place the girlband. I don't think I've ever heard the song and none of the members look familiar. Also, the dance routine is pretty frantic, haha.
Who are they?

Last but not least, I think I may like the new ZE:A song. Usually I'd prefer if if the boys leave the cutesy stuff to the girls, and I do think it would be even better in the hands of a girlband, but there's something so fun, careless about the song that I can't help but like it.
Re: Korean Pop

Yeah I like it and you're pretty spot-on with that description. Feels like a low-key song, so I'm not sure it will blow up or anything, but it's nice. Glad they didn't just give them some schloppy ballad because they're old news.
Re: Korean Pop

The new CSJH song reminded me of f(x) too. I think it'll take a couple of listens for me to truly appreciate the song as I find it a bit too weak right now, but it has some good bits here and there so I'll probably end up liking it.
Re: Korean Pop

The routine looked hard and energetic but their vocals still sounded pretty great. Impressive performance. Dana's scream is my favourite part of the song.
