A’st1 what?

So, was on 2ch in the w-inds. section, and someone posted this PV of this South Korean group, A’st1 (Asia star number 1). Why was this mentioned? Well according to netizen’s on there, one of the members Tomo is a die-hard fan of w-inds.* They are on the same label as SS501, DSP Entertainment.

For some strange reason, I kind of like this group better than SS501 after hearing this song. Everything about this song and PV scream J-Pop, just in Korean. If you watch it, I think you’ll know what I’m talking about.

I don’t know much other than there is one half Japanese/Korean member named Tomo, who also is the oldest, and a Chinese member, Hy Ming. That and they apparently challenged Super Junior when they first debuted last year and ate them words, because they are not doing anything now. But at least they don’t look half bad and they sound decent. I can’t listen to Super Junior, they remind me of Morning Musume, just guys and well we all know the truth about Morning Musume.

I do feel a bit sad for them, because they’ve only released one single, and they get no attention. DSP puts all their efforts into SS501 and KARA.

They’re performance on MNet with their debut song, “1.2.3.4. Back

      Ahhh…i’ve found the w-inds section on 2ch. I think you mistranslated:

      “(…)メンバーに『東トモキ』という日本人メンバーがいるのですが、w-inds.の大ファンです。”
      means:
      “One of the members is a japanese guy called Azuma Tomoki. And he is a die-hard fan of w-inds”
      =)

        ahaha you’re right, I must have read it wrong. -_-;; Thanks for the the correction. I didn’t realize when I wrote it, because I didn’t even go back to 2ch. To the writers defense she wrote that at way early in the AM? 🙂

    Its so sad that DSP only focuses on SS501 and KARA. A’st1 has lots of potential… They could have made it big if there was more promotions. anyways, A’ST1 FIGHTING=)
