TOP Media’s 100% can SERIOUSLY dance

October 1, 2012

I don’t really know this group but a hoobae of mine in my dance school tweeted me this. I’m very amazed actually. Even the smallest details were given attention. In terms of dancing, I think they are the best rookies so far. I’ve seen NU’EST, BAP and EXO dance and they are not as disciplined as this.

Unless I’m missing some group, I will be bold enough to say that they are the most synchronized group currently. INFINITE fans might disagree with me but this routine of 100% is actually quite difficult in comparison to anything that INFINITE has done. Also, the last time INFINITE was synchronized was in Be Mine. Ever since then, their synchronization isn’t anything special anymore.

I’m interested in what this group would bring in the future. I see them as a mix of TEEN TOP and INFINITE. They have INFINITE’s synchronization (well what INFINITE used to have) and TEEN TOP’s difficulty in routines. I don’t consider myself a fan yet but they do got my attention. As much as their choreography is spectacular, the song isn’t really doing anything for me.

PS. The one in cream is actually quite sexy. I can’t see his face (I hope he’s good looking) and his nametag is too small for me to read.

Teen Top Changjo has a fanboy

July 2, 2012

When I saw this vid, I just got to blog about it. Its really hard to read the fanboy’s intentions without seeing his face. But the consensus seems to be that the fan confessed his love to Changjo. Watch the clip and judge for yourself.

Before you say anything, I would just have to remind you that this is Korea. Homosexuality has  a different perspective in this country. They treat it as disease and shuns out people that admits of being one. Think about it. Is their any Korean celebrities, even gagmen, that has admitted to being gay? There’s no one in Korean entertainment (well mainstream) that has come out of the closet. Both male and female. Though the clip is cute and all, I think this is a dare or mission (which Koreans normally call it).

Fanboying to a boy group is not really surprising, but the fan in the vid gave flowers and did aegyo to a member of a boy group. Though male Koreans are infamous for their femininity, this act is considered gayish already in Korea. But saying that, I am a bit curious about the fanboy. I hope there’s more fancams of this surprising event.

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.

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

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.
