Lee Ji Ah - Telecinema Project Vol.1 -Cupcake and Alien


Lee Ji Ah was releasing a single titled, "Cupcake and Alien", and it is finally here!

The song is very sweet indeed. Lee Ji Ah's voice fits perfectly with the bosa nova feel of the music, and her quirky lyrics are just too cute! I will be looking forward to hearing this song in her "Telecinema Project" called "Face, Mind, and Love's Relationship" with Kang Ji Hwan in September.

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Celebrities are always asked what kind of person is their ideal type but it's always a little more interesting when they give a fellow celebrity as an example. Changmin of 2AM revealed that Kara's Kang Jiyoung is his ideal type. He confessed that his ideal type is "cute and kind. I especially like Kara's Kang Jiyoung," on a recently recorded "Star Golden Bell" (it will be aired on August 15th). You'd think it'd be possible for these two to hook up after being partners on MBC's Every1 Idol but Changmin continued, saying "I thought that it would be easy to get close because we're both idols, but we're more than 7 years apart."

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

C.N. Blue (Code Name Blue) will be debuting in Japan on August 19th as an Indie band with an album called "Now or Never". They are already called the "Second F.T. Island" due to their similar sound and style. In fact, C.N. Blue is actually in the same company as F.T. Island, F&C Music (Fish and Cake Music).

The members are consisted of Jung Yong Hwa (vocal and guitar), Lee Jong Hyun (Vocal, guitar), Kwon Kwang Jin (basist), Kang Min Hyuk (drums). You can listen to their music on their myspace. I have to say, they do not sound exactly like F.T. Island, but they do share similar styles. C.N. Blue has a more street and raw sound.
