IS KPOP SETTING THE STAGE FOR A GENERATION OF NEW HITLERS? + My Real life encount

KOREAN POP, THE GLOBAL "PHENOMENON" CONTAMINATING CULTURES + My Real life encounter with Racism at Big Bang concert



Investigative journalist Tay Symone (moi) has been getting worldwide recognition for her work and dozens of journalistic offers and opportunities. I'm not gonna lie I do appreciate the fame and money I've made during my time reporting for ohnotheydidnt but due to my journalistic integrity I could NOT accept those offers due to the censorship and corruption from the government, white house, and other racist institutions. I will remain a free woman reporting for the people and fighting the GOOD FIGHT!
The year 2012 has shown that Korea will stop at NOTHING to dominate the world's music industry while simultaneously attempting to obliterate every culture and race across the globe. The one area in which Korea displays diversity is in their widely varying spectrum of Races in which they spew hateful stereotypes and cultural contamination. The usage of the n word is definitely nothing new in KKK-POP, yet it's still just as disgusting to see. In light of fizzled out girl group "Girls' Generation"'s songwriter advocating for a Black Genocide (covered in my previous post), year-end statistics show that racism in K-pop is in fact at an all time high in what some are calling a "nu-Hitler" generation.

Who Sang It Better?: The Forgotten Edition

Time for the second edition of "Who Sang It Better?"! I was looking at the nominees for the Best Vocal Performane in the Omona They Didn't! Awards (don't forget to vote!), and noticed a cover I knew had been done before, so I wondered, who sang it better...? Remember, judging can be done more than just vocals: stage presence, singing style, emotion, stage clothes, etc. all count! Share how you decided in the comments :)!

The Song: "Forgotten Season" by Lee Yong

Someone in the comments mentioned they were interested in seeing a performance of the original, if I could find it. This song was actually released in 1982! Check out the Youtube video under the cut to see Lee Yong singing.

Even though Jaejoong and Sandeul are both fantastic singers, I think my vote goes toward Sandeul. It's not that you have to belt out notes to win in my opinion, but something about the way he brought the song to calm low and then up to a huge high was really impressive.

Princess Sulli resembles kisaeng Lee Nan Hyang



f(x)’s Sulli recently attracted a lot of attention after a picture of kisaeng Lee Nan Hyang (1900-1979), who was born a hundred years ago, was released.

The picture was uploaded on an online community board under the title of “kisaeng Lee Nan Hyang who was born at the end of the Joseon Dynasty.” She was a very popular woman at the time for her pretty face and singing ability.

When she became one of the most popular kisaeng, she married to a newspaper reporter and became a housewife. However, she was so enthusiastic about singing that she received a song from Ha Gyu Il, a popular composer at the time. With the enthusiasm, she recorded the first album with the songs she received from Ha. What attracts the most attention from people is that she resembles Sulli.

Both have big eyes, drooped eyelids, small lips, sharp nose, and milky-white skin.

People who saw the picture responded: “Sulli and Lee Nan Hyan really look alike.” “Isn’t a picture of Sulli superimposed on the picture?” “Is Sulli reincarnated as Lee Nan Hyang?” “I was so surprised by the picture.”

Hyun Bin's Audio Message for December


AR29thaug

[Transcript + Translation]2012년도 얼마 남지 않았네요.
제가 살아오면서 가장 잘 한일은 연기를 통해 세상과 소통하는일,
어려울때도 쉽게 제 자신을 포기하지않는 일,
이렇게 소중한 사람들을 만나고 그 사람들에게 진심을 열어 답한 일.
사랑하는 팬 여러분, 이렇게 감사하고 조금씩 성장했던 한 해가 기울어 갑니다.
이제 조금만 있으면 여러분을 보러 갑니다.
어느 때보다 감회가 새롭고 기대됩니다.
팬 여러분은 아침마다 저를 설래게 하는 희망의 이름이였습니다.
그 사랑, 고마움, 가슴에 깊이 깊이 새깁니다.
남은 올 한해 마무리 잘 하시고 우리 곧 만나게 되겠죠?
오랜만에 조금 떨립니다.
그리고 사랑합니다.

There is not much left of year 2012 .
The most things that I have done well were that I've communicated with the worlds through acting,
I've never given up easily regardless of hardship and I've met precious people and paid back to them by opening my heart to them.
To my lovely fans, it's almost end of year that I've thanked and grown up.
I am coming to see you sooner or later. I am filled with emotions and really look forward to it more than any other times.
You, fans are the name of hope that made me thrilled in every morning.
That love and thankfulness engrave my hearts deeply.
I hope that you will spend really good time in the rest of this year. We will meet soon?
It's been a long time that I feel nervous.
And I love you.
