How they were once

July 5, 2009

I have always been fond of Korean people. I think Koreans are one of the most beautiful people in the world. Well, at least those in the entertainment industry. Anime came from Japan but Koreans look more like anime than Japanese. But a friend of mine told me earlier this week that liposuction and plastic surgery are very common to Korea that’s why they look all so pretty. So I decided to do a before and after article.

I was quite surprise with what I gathered. Some of the artists were really unnoticeable. Or it could be just hormones. Korean agencies does train singers at a young age. Anyway, decide for yourself. I think some did went under the knife. I couldn’t find any pre-debut pics of the others. Makes me think more that they have undergone surgery.

[Chart] Music Bank 2009/07/03

July 5, 2009

There are three weekly music chart. I know a lot are curious about the whole chart so I decided to post it. Music Bank is the only one I know. I’ll try to find M Countdown and Inkigayo. I’m not sure if I can find one in Inkigayo because none of my friends know how one can win in Inkigayo. It must mean that SBS is not publicizing their chart.

01 2pm – I Hate You
02 SNSD – Tell Me Your Wish
03 Outsider – Alone
04 Lee Seung Gi – Will You Marry Me
05 V.O.S. – Something is Up
06 SHINee – Juliette
07 4minute – Hot Issue
08 M – Minnovation
09 Davichi, SeeYa, & Ji Yeon – Women’s Generation
10 2ne1 – Fire
11 8eight – Goodbye, My Love
12 Super Junior – It’s You
13 MC the Max – Rewind and Rewind
14 SG Wannabe – I love You
15 Lee Seung Chul – Broken Fingernail
16 Kim Yong Joon – Couple
17 Koyote – Nonsense
18 K.Will – 1 Second One Drop
19 Son Dam Bi – On a Saturday Night
20 Chae Yeon – Shake

It would be an interesting coming week. With the album sales of SNSD, I’m sure they’ll get at least one win if not all. Let’s just see. Meantime, here’s the current winner of Music Bank. Enjoy.

It’s been 2pm the whole day

July 5, 2009

I’ve been watching Korean TV the whole day yesterday. Like some netizens, I have notice that 2pm was just everywhere. They were in Music Core, Star King, I Have an Uncle, Star Golden Bell, and Introducing a Star’s Friend. Their Thailand performances and interviews also surfaced yesterday. It was quite a busy day for the ‘Hottest’.
The Music Core episode was pre-recorded obviously. I’m starting to wonder how Music Core does their show. SNSD’s performance of ‘Etude’ last week was live I would believe. The fancams were uploaded a few hours after the show. So there are parts of the show that are live. 2pm were supposed to be in Thailand from the 2nd of July to the 7th. So their performance was recorded July 1 at the least. In the Music Core performance, I heard fans. So it’s like they’re doing a show at the time 2pm did their recording. That’s quite expensive. Have two shooting days for one episode. Please do comment if I’m mistaken. I’m just curious.

Also, 2pm has been establishing themselves in Star King lately. I think Korean networks have started to see their entertainment worth. Here’s the first part of 2pm’s clips in Star King. Just browse the user’s channel for the second part. Wooyoung is starting to establish himself as the resident comedian of the group. He has done a lot in the episode. But my favorite part is Jaebeom in the ropes. That was really hard.

I was surprised that Jaebeom, Wooyoung, Junsu, and Taecyeon were in Star King and Star Golden Bell at the same day. Usually if your in one you won’t be in the other. My Korean is very limited so I didn’t get that much in the show. They danced to ‘I Hate You’ and that’s all I could get. Star Golden Bell is known more for the quoted quotes of the guests unlike Star King’s performances. Here’s the first part of the clips of 2pm. Again, please just browse the user for the second part.

2pm was also in Introducing a Star’s Friend. I don’t really like the show. The whole concept was kinda boring for me. But since this article is about shows that has 2pm in it at their 4th of July episode, I’ll include it. Just browse the user’s channel for the second part.

I’m not familiar with ‘I have an Uncle’. I don’t know if it’s a new show. Never heard it ’till now. The premise doesn’t seem that complicated but I’m not feeling it. Maybe I need more time. Anyway, here’s the clip.

2pm has been getting really popular with variety shows. I think they’ll be getting more invitations to these shows since Super Junior is preparing for their Asian Tour. Both have excellent entertainment skills.

Rain on a Fox’s Parade

July 5, 2009

Megan Fox was in Korea a few weeks back to promote Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen. While in Korea, she expressed her likeness to South Korea’s pride and joy, Rain. According to sources, the hollywood star finds Rain sexy and that she wants to go out on a date with the guy. Rain apparently has not replied to Fox’s invitation making netizens assume of a rejection.

The Transformers’ star is undoubtedly the most popular woman right now. Well, the most popular to men. I have to admit that the girl is pretty fine. She has this seductively look. From any angle, you’ll feel her sexiness. So naturally, netizens are dumbfounded with Rain’s action. Honestly, I would have done what Rain did. I’m not comfortable with aggressive women. It’s alright to express infatuation but to request a date, I think that’s too much for my ego. I want to be the one to drive the relationship.
