Lee Michelle dreams of being a Korean music diva

Lee-Michelle

Her rise was sudden as even jury Yang Hyun Suk said she was a strong contestant to win SBS audition program “K-Pop Star season 1″ in 2011. The audience was immediately fascinated by her powerful voice that outshone Beyoncé and her singing ability. She is Lee Michelle. Her fluency in Korean which was as good as her singing was another surprise as she stood in front of the audience and showed an image they weren’t used to. As she’s coming back with a slimmer figure, what kind of changes did she go through meanwhile?

Yeo Jin Gu – GQ Interview

Yeo-Jin-Gu-GQ-2013

Does your mother go with you everywhere?

Yeah, she still does.

Is it something you want?

It’s something we both want. My mum still feels uncomfortable and I also feel much more comfortable when my mom is with me like “wouldn’t my mum being present make me feel at ease early?”. I don’t even want to think about my life without my mum around. She won’t go with me everywhere until the end of my life, but I want us to be like this as long as possible.

t/n: I don’t know how many people will read this, but I know the skin topic is sensitive and I tried my best to stay true to what he says.

M.I.B comeback track "Chisa'Bounce" is going to be awesome but Cream hurt his arm :(



from soompi:

Cream of hip hop group M.I.B is currently hospitalized due to a serious injury in his right arm.

Early in the morning of March 25, the idol fell down the stairs at a recording studio in Hongdae, causing a glass window in front of him to shatter. A check-up at the hospital revealed that 20 stitches were needed to treat his arm, and he is currently recovering from the operation.

Due to the injury being a severe one, he has to wear a cast and protect his arm. According to their original plan, M.I.B is supposed to hold their comeback showcase on March 27, but Cream’s injury has caused them to reconsider their schedule.

Their agency has not yet decided whether Cream will join the rest of the members after he recovers, or whether he should be completely excluded from the upcoming activities.

M.I.B’s official comeback stage will take place on April 2 in Japan, where MNet’s “Global M!Countdown” is held. Their title track “Bounce” is said to be an addictive and memorable song with M.I.B’s energetic hip hop sound.

Super cute mv for Lee Seung Hwan 'I Only Respond To You' starring Junhyung


source: dreamfactoryclub LoveKpopSubs15

[lyrics translation]
Your peach lipgloss on your full lips
It makes me dizzy, swallowing me whole

How can you be so electrifying
Your words are so nice

No word in this world can express my feelings
I keep stuttering when I’m in front of you

I ask about things that don’t even make sense
To you, today and tomorrow
My love squirms and rises

I only react to you, I’m ecstatic at the repetition of you
I want you to want me
Only you, I only react to you, I’m happy, because it’s you

This chronic fluttering feeling and the fire in my heart
A bad aftereffect that needs a immediate cure

All day, your face goes around my head
Your name rolls around my tongue

I only react to you, I’m ecstatic at the repetition of you
I want you to want me
Only you, I only react to you, I’m happy, because it’s you

Oh my darling, the skies blessed us
You’re my other half, who perfectly understands me even when it’s nonsense

I react, I’m ecstatic, at the repetition of you
I want you to want me
Only you, I react, I’m happy, because it’s you
I need you to need me

Only you la la la la la la la la la la la la
I want you to want me
Only you la la la la la la la la because it’s you

From H.O.T To EXO, The Evolution Of Idol Groups

from-h-o-t-to-exo-the-evolution-of-idol-groups

Idols are like small corporations these days. They control the economy of the entertainment industry. What gave rise to the current state of idol stars?


Twenty years ago, Pop dance groups such as Noise, Seo Taiji and the Boys, TURBO, and Deux was already making dance music popular. These groups were the "ushers" of the new era of music from which the current idol groups evolved. When SM Entertainment released H.O.T, it began a new era of Korean music that eventually was branded K-Pop. Among stars that evolved from this K-Pop revolution are Shinhwa, TVXQ, G.O.D, Sechs Kies, Jinusean, 1TYM, Big Bang, and EXO. Idol groups are the dominant performers on the K-Pop stage today, but it wasn't so twenty years ago. What changed? It's time to examine the evolution of the idol group in Korean music history.
