Will go you cha-cha-cha for LA chA TA?

f(x)

Unlike most fans (99.9% of them), I didn’t have any expectations of f(x) (probably because I’m not a fan of SM groups). The teaser MV reminded me of SHINee and when they announced this group, I knew this was in retaliation to 2NE1.

Why? SNSD failed to beat out 2NE1 how many times? With this group and their style, you can’t tell me I’m wrong when I say, “2NE1 much?” The concept, style and timing are all too perfect.

How will SM beat out YG? This is how. When you watch the MV, they are the female version of SHINee. Much like how 2NE1 is the female version of Big Bang (although I disagree).  Don’t get me wrong, I really like f(x), they’re not SNSD. They can dance and most of all they aren’t based off of looks (like their seniors).

While you can go on many K-Pop blogs and find the history of this group, I’m not going to post that. I will say though, how stereo typical to put the Chinese-American as the rapper. Why do they have to make her look like a guy? Amber looks like she belongs in SHINee. I could have sworn I seen one of her outfits on Key. Oh look they did, poor Amber, she got recycled clothes. All they did was change the tank top, if you can’t see the similarities, I really can’t help you there.

The way they styled her makes f(x) look like 1 guy and 4 girls. Now wouldn’t that be a scandal?

Anyways, have fun watching this MV, I know I do.  How long do you think before we’ll start seeing copy dances on YouTube? I give it another 30 minutes or so, if they’re not already up.

TVXQ @ a-nation

a-nation 2009 _logo_

It’s been over a week since a-nation 09, but better late than never, right?  We got our grubby little hands on some photos of TVXQ. I’m not into this group or anything, but I have to say, some of these shots are looking good.

This is a sign that I’ve been writing way too much TVXQ on here. Tell me, should I stop posting TVXQ stuff?

If posting elsewhere please use the following credit and link back. Thanks.

Jang Jin Young passes away

We start the first morning of the ninth month with sad news. Korean model and actress Jang Jin Young lost her battle with stomach cancer this morning (1605 KST).  The model/actress was diagnosed with the disease on 9/22/08 and immediately stopped activities to focus on getting treatment.

Jang Jin re-located to Los Angeles last year to recieve immediate treatment, and was showing improvement. Jang was released on 8/5 and returned to Korea after being released. It was only then her conditioned worsened and she was admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital in Seoul yesterday. Soon after, it was reported by her agency Yedang Entertainment, that the model/actress passed away, leaving many loved ones and fans.

For many this is a tragic loss, for some this is just another sad piece of news. Either way, our hearts go out to her family and her loving boyfriend who was with her every step of the way.

St. Mary’s will be holding a service for anyone who wants to stop by and pay their respects; her funeral will be held on Friday 9/5.

They were just waiting for it to happen

G-Dragon
Remember this scandal? When the company was afraid of people doing something with his “giving the finger” to the camera. Which by the way I really doubt he was, and if he was, he needs to do it right.

Anyways, well thanks to them, someone did and well, we couldn’t help but put it up and share it with all of you. Quite frankly it’s pretty darn funny and I feel sorry for CL. If I were her, I’d demand an apology from Jiyong, because really, he walked in on this one and landed her in the middle of it. He has no one to blame but himself.

photos were sent anonymous

Oh yes and on top of that this, G-Dragon has been sponsored by Louis Vuitton to endorse shoes. LV is one of the most popular brand names around the world. Louis Vuitton has never sponsored anyone in Korea, so G-Dragon is the first celebrity to be endorsed. They have already given him a pair of shoes from Kanye West’s line. The only thing they want from GD is to wear it. The self-proclaimed ‘fashionista’ caught a big fish and gets to bathe in the luxery of sneakers that probably only took $30 to make but really cost $500.

He also twittered about it on his me2day:

He’s making it RAIN in Japan!

rain

Bi made it ‘rain’ in Japan this past weekend. On 8/29 and 8/30, RAIN performed at Saitama Super Arena. It’s been two years since he’s been back in Japan, so this year he made it rain for his “LEGEND OF RAINISM 2009/RAIN ASIA TOUR IN JAPAN”.

For his show on 9/29, he kept everything simple; nothing fancy, just him and a back band. He wanted everyone to focus on his performance more than anything else.

He also paid tribute to Michael Jackson by performing a hot dance to “Billie Jean”.

“He was the best performer. It’s because of him music is what it is today. It’s because of him that I started to dance; he is someone I will always respect.”

RAIN performed 25 songs including, It’s Raining, Running away from the Sun, I Do, I’m Coming, BAD BOY, Love Story, RAINISM, etc.

His show was so hot, that at one point some of the fans looked away because RAIN was half naked and dancing “sexy” with one of the female dancers.

You know I bet if Megan Fox saw that dance, hot and jealous all at the same time. She would be hating on that dancer. Oh well.

It’s sad Michael died on my birthday and RAIN‘s. Well we can take comfort in knowing that people won’t be forgetting our birthdays anytime soon.
