Bro's debut single "That Kind of Guy" stirs controversy for negative lyrics about women

Rookie male artist Bro has been the talk of the town for the past couple of days.

Bro recently released his debut single, “That Kind of Guy,” which has stirred up some controversy from the public. However, the song is gaining popularity at the same time.

“That Kind of Guy” reached #1 on music charts for Soribada and Bugs Music as of 10AM KST on March 24. It also ranked #3 on Mnet, #5 on Naver and #11 on Melon.

The subject of the matter is in the lyrics. For example, “A guy who may not be handsome but has a broad chest for you to lean on and rest / That kind of guy would be crazy to date someone like you / You have a conscience / If guys who aren’t that great keep coming to you, that means you’re not that great either.”

Also, “A kind of guy who takes you to the ocean when you want to get away / A guy who is tall and while he may not be an heir, a guy who is at least 180cm and makes 60k a year / No matter what nonsense you say, a kind of guy who smiles brightly and stays cool / If I could be that kind of a guy, if I’m the kind of guy who you can fall for at first sight / Are you high? I would be crazy to date you / I want to enjoy life too / If you want a prince, then go to Saudi / But the catch is, they practice polygamy.”

Finally, “Even if you put airbags in your breasts and caterpillars under your eyes, there is one truth that can’t be hidden / You have an offensive face.”

These lyrics were criticized to be putting down women and sexist.

The music video to “That Kind of Guy” was also a hot topic, as it portrays the lyrics as if it was part of a Kakao Talk conversation.

[!!!] 4MINTERVIEW - "No matter which colour it is, we're confident we can make it 4minute's colour."



Just like the word “colourful”, we’ve met with the girl group which is able to express their five different colours best, 4minute. The girls recently returned with their fifth EP “4minute World”, and it was clear from their expression how excited they were about it. Before opening up about the honest 4minute World, nervousness and excitement were showing through 4minute’s features.

K-FANS ARE FED UP WITH SM RUINING THEIR OWN ARTISTS

title: The limit of SNSD
2077522158_c8d5b943_daum_gallery_photo_20140301231828

The head of SM, Kim Youngmin's interview:

"SNSD will disappear someday, and another group will replace them. We used to view BoA and TVXQ as individual artists, but for this reason, we started to view them as SM artists. The SM brand now has its own profit value."

(edit; This is not a mistranslation. These are Kim Youngmin's literal words from his interview in 2010. He said this when he was talking about debuting new groups. He was talking about group transitions in SM, he didn't mean to offend SNSD fans. But yes, unfortunately, he had already been thinking of replacing SNSD.)

Girl's Generation Featured on NOISEY

Screen Shot 2014-03-27 at 8.52.53 PM

We all know Psy. You’ve probably heard G-Dragon and CL before—on a Diplo or Skrillex beat at the least—and some hundred thousand Lady GaGa fans are about to meet Crayon Pop in stadiums across Middle America and Canada this summer. But there’s no K-pop phenomenon bigger than Girls’ Generation. They remain Korea’s all-time best-selling girl group, their YouTube prowess has trouncedthat of even some of the brightest Western stars, and their tour attendance is astounding. If Korean music is something that’s been brought to your attention sometime in the past half decade, there’s a good chance that had something to do with “Gee,” the undisputed classic of K-pop.

After an uncharacteristically long break since their last release—all of two months—and almost a straight year of Japanese records and tours, Girls’ Generation returned late last month with the Mr.Mr. mini-album. We broke bread with all nine (very polite) girls to talk new music, bolstering the flagging confidence of insecure boys, and Korea’s super intense trainee pop regime. Apparently of the 10,000 K-Pop wannabes, only one becomes a star. Steep odds for sure.

Tablo answers questions regarding past albums

Although he does Q/A quite frequently , this week he chose the theme of older albums. I noticed on old omona posts about Epik High there was some negative suspicions regarding certain albums , i feel this Q/A debunked some of those.

note: He didn't answer questions to do with "special albums" like MTS,Epilogue etc

LOUIE (OF GEEKS) FEAT. SANCHEZ OF PHANTOM – SIDE MIRROR GIRL


source: hul omo

[lyrics translation]
Even when there’s distance, you seem close
You know when I’m feeling down, you’re my side mirror girl
You get closer than it seems
Just tell me that we’re just good friends

You say you just throw on anything but you look good
Unlike some people, you don’t care about designer brands
It looks like you take care of your skin
You’re not the type to be socially active
But you are friendly toward everyone
You have a good sense of humor and are laid back
You are good with words, you
You choose better words than me
I’m a rapper but I can’t really talk in front of you
You call me at 9 o’clock at night
You say you’ll buy me a drink, telling me to hurry and come out
Did something happen? Did you get dumped?
Was his car the only thing that was attractive?
Then how about me? Aren’t I ok?
I have my own philosophy and am good at rapping
Although I’m too good for you
What are you thinking? I’m just joking

Even when there’s distance, you seem close
You know when I’m feeling down, you’re my side mirror girl
You get closer than it seems
Just tell me that we’re just good friends

You pretend not to know how I feel
You pretend to look far ahead
You glare at me as you hit my shoulders
I’m getting goosebumps at your acting skills
Although it’s an everyday thing now
Why are you flirting with such a pathetic guy?
Do you wanna have a go? Take off your mask
While you go around, I’m waiting, though it’s annoying, I’m not complaining
I’m checking to see if you texted me yet, like a habit
Don’t you feel back for me? I’m like Amitabha Buddha
You stole my heart like a thief
You poked at my burning heart
So I pour down alcohol on an empty stomach to sterilize
Yeah, I’m always bad with jokes
It’s a serious dare, a serious answer after joking around
Why do you keep putting your head on my shoulders?
At this rate, what are you gonna do if I confess to you

Even when there’s distance, you seem close
You know when I’m feeling down, you’re my side mirror girl
You get closer than it seems
Just tell me that we’re just good friends

What if our relationship gets farther apart?
I’m probably just a good friend, nothing more
Because if I walk on this street alone, it’ll seem too far
Wherever I go, if I’m with you, it feels short
Do you know how I feel?

I keep looking back, even my footsteps get slow because of you
I don’t want a lot of things, just stay by my side

Even when there’s distance, you seem close
You know when I’m feeling down, you’re my side mirror girl
You get closer than it seems
Just tell me that we’re just good friends
