B1A4′s Baro and Sandeul win on ‘Immortal Song 2′

   


Idol group B1A4‘s Baro and Sandeul won first on the December 8th episode of KBS2TV‘s ‘Immortal Song 2‘.

For the Kim Bum Ryong special of the show, the two B1A4 members performed “The Way to Live like a Man“. Sandeul’s quiet yet emotional singing impressed the crowd in particular.

Son Ho Young, who also competed on the program, commented, “This is the best B1A4 performance I’ve seen so far. I think they’ll get 1st,” while Brown Eyed Girls’ JeA stated, “It’s like they were cast aside somewhere. They express themselves in a way that’s supposed to be difficult for young people.”

Kim Bum Ryong himself said, “You [two] are very cute, but the song is very mature. I composed ‘The Way to Live like a Man’ after watching the drama ‘Seoul’s Daughter‘, and [I feel like] the feelings during that time were brought back.”


In the end, B1A4 won with 405 votes, defeating Jung Dong Ha by 1 vote.

Since there wasn't a post about this yet and I thought B1A4 bbs deserved a post for their first Immortal Song 2 win (not just winning a round but winning the entire ep!) :D The performance was great but Sandeul especially kills it after Baro finishes his rap. And everyone being so happy for them winning made me really happy.

2012: Something for everyone? [Year In Review, Part 1]


Review extravaganza time!

I know: Already? It feels like just the other day I was killing myself to corral all my thoughts in coherent fashion in a monster review of 2011′s dramas, and already it’s time to lose sleep wrangling my thoughts together for 2012. Time sure flies when you’re having fun, or old. Guess which one I am?

These days I shy away from blanket statements like “This was an awesome year” or “This was a terrible year.” Dramaland has been putting out so much material that all the nuance gets sucked out of a flattening statement like that. If anything, 2012 was the year it overflowed with variety—so yes, there were terrible shows, and there were awesome shows, and there were shows every step in between. But thanks to the explosion of cable programming—aided by the launching of not one, not two, but four new cable stations boasting big drama lineups—there was just about something for everyone.

I’ll start with the non-drama series, since they’re a different format than our standard prime-time miniseries. It seems apt to talk about them together, to compare apples to apples. As with all years, I add the caveat that not all the year’s dramas are talked about in this post, but future reviews in our year-end series will do a pretty good job covering the spread.

STILL IN PROGRESS…

I’m setting these dramas off in their own section, because as of this writing they’re all still airing. But some are already near the halfway mark and next year’s a long way off, so I’ll touch on them briefly here.
