U-Kiss

Today's Director: Self-Centered Hoon on UKISS ME? EP 7!



Source: sunieesubs

At least Hoon's directing was somewhat better than Kiseop's lol
Which Christmas date if U-Kiss has girlfriend did you like best and least? Romantic Kiseop, sweet Soohyun, shy Eli, direct Hoon (my fave), cute Kevin or young Dongho (least fave)?

Most unsatisfying ending ever! That is until I look up the chart position myself.
I'm on a roll with all my U-Kiss posts this week. Yay! Lots to spazz! Still crazily waiting for more specific info on the comeback though. Where is my info NHM!

But yeah Tokyo Dome!

Eric Nam is a precious little poop

[Exclusive] Interview with Eric Nam: The Unexpected K-Pop Artist

Eric Nam, following his 5th place finish on MBC’s “Star Audition: Birth of a Great Star” Season 2, is the newest member of the B2M Entertainment family, which includes popular artists such as Lee Hyori, SPICA, and SS501 members Kim Kyu Jong and Heo Young Sang. He is currently promoting his first mini-album “Cloud 9,” which dropped on January 23rd, including the title track “Heaven’s Door.”

I was introduced to Eric through my friend Christine, an OG Soompier and the producer of Kollaboration, the nationwide talent competition that empowers Asian-Americans through entertainment. She got to know him when he directed the first-ever Kollaboration show in Boston. When I heard that Eric was also an old-school Soompier, I thought of presenting him as a fan, like the rest of us, who managed to bring his dreams of becoming a K-Pop artist to life. As we exchanged emails over the days leading up to his debut, I found that while this is all true, there was a surprising depth and breadth to his life experience that was both intriguing and refreshing.

This is a long but interesting read. I tried to highlight the best parts. Does anyone else find it hard not to be inspired by Eric?

tl;dr born ('88) and raised Atlanta; did lots of volunteer work in Latin America; knows English, Spanish, Chinese and is learning Japanese; he was never a trainee; he likes a lot of Kpop singers and Korean singers not considered "Kpop"; he plays the panio and cello;
toured in Italy and got to sing for mass at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome with Atlanta Boys Choir; wants to be an inspiration for others; is in B2M Enterainment with Lee Hyori (one of his first Kpop crushes!) and SPICA among others

As the "wholesome girl makeup" of f(x)'s Sulli, who has most recently been selected as Etude House's model, became a topic of interest the related product is gaining much popularity and receiving attention.

The Baby Choux Base from the Sweet Recipe Makeup Collection which Etude House has most recently launched was noticed as the product used in Sulli's self makeup video, a topic of interest among netizens, and set a record when the 100,000 unit stock sold out.

Baby Choux Base is a product which includes only the positive qualities of makeup base and primer and simultaneously helps correct skin tone and clears the skin's complexion.

According to Etude House, this product creates a complexion that is dewy within yet soft and smooth on the surface, and the silky control powder controls sebum to maintain a soft and smooth complexion without oiliness or shine for a long period of time.

In addition, if one selects and uses the hue that suits one's personal skin tone between the three hues of mint, pink, and peach, a natural but smooth porcelain-like makeup look is achieved.

In particular, as the Baby Choux Base became known as the product that Sulli used when she most recently appeared on a beauty program and showed a makeup look that was natural like a makeup-free face yet cleanly corrected of blemishes and skin tone, consumers who are seeking the product are continuing to make inquiries even after it became out of stock.

An affiliated representative of Etude House expressed, "As Sulli's self makeup secret method rose on the real-time search rankings on portal sites and gained popularity, the interest from customers in the Baby Choux Base, which became known as Sulli's makeup secret, is explosive," and "As a product that can correct skin tone and complexion with a natural look like that of Sulli, who produced a makeup look with a wholesome girl feel, the sales increased more and more through the word of mouth of customers and we are planning to enter into additional production."
