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

2010 Golden Disk Awards

December 10, 2010

The 25th Golden Disk Awards was held last night at the Hwajeong Gym in Koryeo University, South Korea. The winners are as follows

Disk Bonsang Daesang – SNSD (Oh!)
Digital Music Daesang – 2AM (Can’t Let You Go Even If I Die)

Disk Bonsang
– DJ Doc (I’m This Type of Person)
– SHINee (Lucifer)
– SNSD (Oh!)
– Super Junior (BONAMANA)
– BoA (Hurricane Venus)

Digital Music Bonsang
– 2AM (Can’t Let You Go Even If I Die)
– IU (Nagging)
– miss A (Bad Girl Good Girl)
– CNBLUE (I’m A Loner)
– Lee Seung Gi (Love Taught Me To Drink)

Hip-Hop Award – Supreme Team
Rock Award – F.T. Island

Rookie Award:
– B2ST
– SECRET
– SISTAR

Popularity Award
– SNSD
– SHINee

Asian Popularity Award – Super Junior
Producer Award – Hong Seung Sung (Cube Entertainment)
Lifetime Achievement Award – Park Chun Seo

Golden Disk Awards is deemed as South Korea’s version of the prestigious Grammy’s. But honestly, I don’t think winning in GDA is an honor. I don’t know. If you look at it, the award show is more of summing an artist entire sales for the year. So basically, the quality of the album released is not a factor. It’s all about the quantity of the album that was sold. Music Bank anyone? BoA and Super Junior won Disk Bonsang, but the songs they have released this year wasn’t even THAT popular. I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me.

Also, I don’t think the award is given to the right people. Though SNSD already won Disk Bonsang, they should have also won Digital Bonsang. Also, C.N.Blue and Miss A should have won rookies of the year along with Sistar. Some people in allkpop commented that if an artist won in one category, they are excluded in winning the other one. But I don’t still get the exclusion. Give credit if they deserve it.

Seoul Music in my opinion is the award to look out for. It balances quality and quantity.

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.

10 Most Talented Idol Groups: Eliminated – Teen Top, Miss A, Sistar, Super Junior & SS501

November 21, 2010

I can’t believe December is just around the corner and that 2011 is just a little over that. I’m really gonna miss this blog, but its something that must be done. Life is calling.

As you all know, I’m doing a project in line with my permanent departure to Kpop. The “10 Most Talented Idol Group.” And as the title of this post states, Teen Top, Miss A, Sistar, Super Junior and SS501 are not part of the elite 10. Before I go on, I know a lot will react. I kinda expected it since its SuJu and SS501. I crunched the numbers and this is what it showed.

Just a reminder, the project judges idol groups as “groups”. The over-all performance of the group. Even if the group has the best dancer, vocal, rapper in the industry, that person will be pulled down if the idol’s members cannot keep up. Or the performance will be in shambles because of the obvious talent imbalance. Another thing, this project doesn’t care if one or two members sings just one or two lines. The important thing is the quality of the performance.

Teen Top is actually good. They might even be the future superstar of Kpop. But I have a bit comment with Niel. I don’t know if its puberty but Niel’s voice has this tendency to be annoying at certain notes just like SNSD’s Jessica. Actually not annoying, but it feels like something is wrong. Also, CAP should really start conveying a new image. He’s not actually known as CAP but Taecyeon 2.0 which I think is a bad thing. A copy will always be scrutinize and also that Taecyeon is the most hated idol right now.

Though Teen Top has this overwhelming potential, they really don’t have an identity. The same thing that B2ST is facing. I mean what is Teen Top? Hip Hop? Rap? Beastly? It’s ok to have a wide variety of genre as long as you have direction. They’re just too much going on. I think this actually hurt them. It’s making them look mediocre. Teen Top seems to be more popular than Infinite but Infinite’s songs are more well known. So to put it simply, Teen Top’s popularity cannot be attributed to them being singers.

Miss A is another rookie that surprises everyone. I’m a fan of them. And they do bring spice to Kpop. But I think they’re a bit overrated. I can categorize Miss A as dancers. They’re very spot on in their choreography but they haven’t really proven anything in terms of vocals. I know Miss A fans will say “hey, listen to this member singing this song and you’ll be proven wrong”. But you have to realize that people not into certain groups won’t actually give time to research on those groups that do not catch their fancy. They will be judge with what they promote.

But saying that, I think Miss A will be one of the next best things in Kpop. To you guys, watch out for Infinite, Teen Top, Sistar and Miss A. These four groups will become somebody someday. They have the talent and discipline (cough Sulli cough Krystal) to actually be big.

I eliminated Sistar because they are not as explosive as the remaining groups. Well, not yet. Explosive in a sense that you want to see more. Sistar definitely can compete talent-wise with the remaining idols. I think they can even beat some if you measure talent. But what Sistar lacks so much is confidence. There are few groups out there that has too much confidence and do better than Sistar, though have less talent, because of that confidence. Confidence brings out charisma. And a charismatic group makes any performance worthwhile.

SS501 is a group that can sing. I think they’re as good as DBSK in terms of vocals but like Sistar, they seem to lack this charisma to push them even further. To people who are into Kpop as long as I have, I think you would agree that Kim Hyun Joong is SS501. The other members just don’t have that X-factor to propel the group on their own. So it wasn’t that surprising that the group disbanded when Kim Hyun Joong decided to leave.

Now here’s the tricky part. Super Junior. ELFs, please be open-minded. Super Junior got to where they are now, not because of what they can do but what they are. SuJu is the epitome of variety idols. As a group, talent-wise, they’re ok. Come on ELFs, I think you will agree that there are groups there that can perform better than SuJu. But what catapulted these guys to fame is their personality. They were able to make the audience relate to them thus making it the fans feel like the boys are their friends.

But saying this, I don’t think SuJu is one of the elite 10. They’re popular yes, but I don’t think they are that talented as a whole group. Yes, they have the vocals of Kyu Hyun and Ryeowook and the rapping ability of Eunhyuk. But as a group, I don’t think they can match the remaining groups. Charisma is an added factor but not the main factor.

5 are gone and only 15 remains in the hope to be part of the “10 Most Talented Idol Groups”.

01.) 2AM
02.) 2NE1
03.) 2PM
04.) After School
05.) B2ST
06.) Big Bang
07.) DBSK
08.) f(x)
09.) g.o.d
10.) Infinite
11.) MBLAQ
12.) SHINee
13.) SNSD
14.) U-Kiss
15.) Wonder Girls

I’ll leave you with my favorite performance from each group.

Teen Top – Sunset Glow

Miss A – Poker Face

Sistar – Push Push

SS501 – Love Like This

Super Junior – U

Dance Versions Part 2

November 4, 2010

Now here are the noteworthy rookies of 2010. I think these 4 are really gonna go places. Just give the right songs and opportunity, these 4 will indeed be big.

Infinite’s “She’s Back”

Sista’s “Shady Girl”

miss A’s “Breathe”

Teen Top’s “Clap”

I know I said dance versions does not include cut vids, but I guess the Miss A dance version is ok since the entire routine can be seen.
