Asia Song Festival 2009 conference

And what a conference it was. Artists from all over Asia performed in South Korea for the festival. Amongst the artists in at the conference, no one had a miscommunication problem.

Gackt suprised us with his Korean, because really, he didn’t fail like Big Bang did in Japanese. SNSD showed off their fluency in English, Mandarin and Japanese. We already know 2NE1 speaks about 6 languages so there’s no need to be surprised about them.

Now they need to move their butts and have that festival here in L.A. so we can see all them perform too.

So do you agree??

Apparently a majority of older women answered this pole. With that said, some of them should feel like pedo’s with some of those choices (i.e. Yamada Ryosuke). And how hyde lost to Jaejoong I will never understand, hyde is by far the better looking one, although I’m also prone to say that TOP looks better than all of them, but that’s a personal opinion and not based on physical looks alone. How Hotaka beat out any of the Big Bang, DBSK, GLAY members is beyond my me too. Well it goes to show that Japanese women there have odd taste. At least some they got it right with INORAN, you can never go wrong with him, although he should have been number one, he totally beats out Hotaka.

I do give props to DBSK and Arashi for having most if not all, it’s members in this ranking.

Never thought I’d see all their names in one place.

So I never thought I’d see all their names in one place, only because the genre’s are different. Out of MusiQ magazine will feature w-inds., Big Bang, SUGIZO and GACKT. I know he’s on the cover, but the mag would have sold more if it was any of the other 3 artists. Who wouldn’t want to see 3-5 hot looking guys on the cover? Maybe they were on a budget?


I don’t see how people think Gackt’s hot, he’s old and has way too much make up. His music has gone down the tubes and he became a role model for KAT-TUN’s Ueda (botox boy). Clearly there is something wrong with netizens. I do give him props though he can still make chonies wet at his age, even if I don’t understand it.

Excerpt from the mag:
GACKT will have a 25PG LONG Interview (yeah way too long).

Big Bang will have an interview revealing their charms, their words, etc. This will be one hot long interview.

SUGIZO will talk about his DVD, his work with X-Japan and collaboration with the Blue Man Group.

It’s not on their site, but on the mag it has the name of w-inds. summer tour, “SWEET FANTASY”. How sweet it is! I just hope their dances are and playlist live up to it. That 2007 tour was so bad, I couldn’t sit through half of it. I suppose it was expected since I watched it after watching Lead’s 2007, which was 100x better than w-inds.
It’s also funny MusiQ’s website the spelled G-Dragon, G-DORAGON. It’s not misspelled if you’re citing it directly from Katakana.

Gackt Becomes GACKT!?

GACKT!

GACKT! You look like you need to take dump!



From JapanToday:
Popular singer Gackt, who celebrated the 10th year of his solo career on June 4, kicked off his arena tour at Chiba’s Makuhari Messe this week. At the concert, he announced the “enlargement” of his name, from “Gackt” to an all-capital “GACKT,” explaining, “To commemorate 10 years as an artist, I’ve gone all big letters.


Too bad that’s the ONLY thing that’ll get BIG on you!  At least he explained why it’s ALL CAPITALS.  I think it’s because he has bad eye sight and can’t see anything tiny though. That or he and YOSHIKI got into a big fight, aren’t friends anymore and he’s trying to upstage him. Don’t worry GACKT, YOSHIKI can’t do anything right now, the fans cut his hand off!
