Link Migration

June 13, 2011

It’s been a while guys. But to be clear, I’m not blogging once more. This post is just to inform you that the links to the music charts and everything else on my blog roll (Twitter, HomePage, Online Chart etc) will be migrated to my youtube channel.  I’m doing this as a favor to a friend. Don’t know why she wants it to be like that but it seems to mean a lot to her. Anyway, here’s the link to my channel.

Hope you guys an entertaining life. See you around…

Online Streaming Link

December 29, 2010

I watch music shows most of the time in kpopflash.net. They air everything that has to do with Kpop. Well, not everything actually. But you can guarantee that this link will be able to help you watch music shows (M! Countdown, Music Bank, Music Core, and Inkigayo). And according to my sources, they will also air the Gayo Festivals. So enjoy! Another thing I will leave you guys.

I’ll try to update the links on my blogroll but I won’t promise anything. Though it’s vacation. I do have a lot of things to do.

[UPDATE]
Try this link as well. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/kpopflash

10 Most Talented Idol Groups: Eliminated – f(x)

November 27, 2010

There are lots of people who foresaw f(x) being eliminated next. I crunched the numbers, and it told me that f(x) is the next one to be eliminated. I know, so close yet so far.

f(x) debut impressed a lot of people. I’m one of them. But i’ll be honest, it wasn’t until Chu that I started to watch their performances. I’m not into their songs but they do bring it. Classic example of a not so great song being promoted by an amazing performance. Their pretty good. They’re a potential superstar. But again I quote, “potential”. Doesn’t mean that they will be, but they have potential.

The group is made up of Sulli, Victoria, Luna, Amber, and Krystal. The most popular is obviously Amber. f(x) popularity can be attributed to her. Without Amber, f(x) won’t be where they are now. I’m not saying f(x) is another SS501. I’m saying Amber’s uniqueness made the group stood out. Remember, f(x) debut at the time where girl groups are debuting left and right.

Now with regards to talent, one can’t help but compare them to SHINee. SM might have been thinking of SHINee when they were forming the group. It’s like a one on one comparison actually. Sulli-Taemin, Victoria-Key, Amber-Minho, Krystal-Onew, and Luna-JongHyun. But though the similarity is obvious, the talent attributes are far different. Well, guys will be guys. I’m not being a sexist but guys can do a lot more than women. It’s not in the mind anymore. It’s in the body. It’s biology.

But saying all this, I do not believe they are part of the “10 Most Talented Idols”. Why? They lack charisma as a group. Well, compared to the groups that remained. I don’t know actually how to put it into words. But maybe if you watch performances of the remaining groups and then pick out the best performances one by one, putting aside your bias or hatred, you’ll find yourself picking f(x) last. I guarantee, that’s what will happen.

So to sum it up, it’s not that f(x) sucks or has something pulling them back. The remaining groups are just too good compared to f(x). Well not too good, too polished might be the proper term. Another thing, I base my analysis in the assumption that Amber will be back. But if Amber won’t be back, which I think she really won’t (Kim Kibum Part 2?), f(x) will not even be in the Top 20. Without Amber’s uniqueness, f(x) will be wall flower. They will drown in this pool of girl groups.

1 more is gone and only 11 remains in the hope to be part of the “10 Most Talented Idol Groups”.

01.) 2AM
02.) 2NE1
03.) 2PM
04.) After School
05.) Big Bang
06.) DBSK
07.) g.o.d
08.) Infinite
09.) MBLAQ
10.) SHINee
11.) Wonder Girls

I’ll leave you with my favorite performance of f(x).

f(x) – Chu ~♡

As you can see, every song that 2AM has released (well of course excluding the recently released) is in the top 100. This is what I’ve been saying. 2AM is the busiest group of 2010. They are just everywhere this year. And given that, I think they will win Artist of the Year at least one of the year-end awards.

[Chart] Music Bank 2010/08/13

August 16, 2010

BoA won 1st place in Music Bank last Friday the 13th. It wasn’t really a surprise. I think everyone in the studio knows she will win. But I’m still not feeling her. Though she’s one of the biggest star in Kpop, I just feel like there’s a wall between us preventing me to understand what she’s all about. Anyway, maybe I only need time. Congrats to her still.

The album sales thing must really be so strong in SM artist. SNSD, Super Junior, SHINee and now BoA has won Music Bank purely because of album sales. Music Bank should really study their system. Remember, korean fans are crazy. They will go to lengths to immortalize their idols. It has been proven that SNSD and SuJu fans have been buying 3-5 albums to give them a win in Music Bank. Maybe changing the system a bit would be fair for non-SM artists. Every online charts have stated that DJ Doc is a more popular song. Anyway, that’s life.

Hurricane Venus
Digital score: 3404

Sulli and Krystal, doing a Taeyeon

August 13, 2010

F(x) is definitely the future of SM. With SNSD leaving for Japan, all eyes are now set to F(x). 24/7, netizens will be on watch. And recently, Sulli and Krystal were accused of having no manners just like what Taeyeon did to Music Bank. Ok, I understand that their schedule might have been unbearable and they were tired and all, but they’re celebrities for GOD sake. This is the price of fame. If they can’t handle the heat then they should get off the pan.

I actually think Sulli and Krystal did something. The staff may have exaggerated but I’m pretty sure the two did something wrong. Sulli and Krystal were with Victoria and Luna that time but the staff only had praises for the latter two.

I hope people will understand that the staff people have the same schedule as the artists. Yes, Sulli and Krystal have previous engagements but the staff did all the preparation. Both Sulli and Krystal and the staff pretty much have the same work. Everyone is doing what they’re suppose to so there’s no reason to be rude.

I hope that this will be a lesson to them. This is actually strike two for Krystal. It’s ok to be frank and honest but it’s not ok if it will lead to disaster.

The life of a celebrity has its price. You have to change a part of you. They have to remember, little kids look up to them. If they see their idols being rude and hurtful, they will think its ok to be like that. Imagine a world where everyone just say what they want to say. Imagine a world where people throw tantrums if they can’t get what they want. Imagine a world where everyone push you down when something happens beyond your control. How scary is that?

I’ll say it again. Yes, they’re humans. They have emotions. But they’re celebrities. That’s all to it.
