This comeback was too short and Mr.Mr was not their best single.

I want a repackage. But I also know Japan is where the money is… so my hopes are low.

Shin Hyuk Talks About K-pop in U.S.

no

By Park Jin-hai

EXO, SHINee, Girls Generation, f(x), VIXX, Teen Top and Justin Bieber. Looking at the profile of Shin Hyuk, 28, founder and CEO of Joombas Music Group, one might wonder how this young producer could make his musical mark both in Korea and the U.S. in less than 10 years.

Best known for EXO's "Growl" ― a blend of rap, R&B melody and pop hooks ― written by his team of producers, the Korean producer has much credit for the boy band to gain international fame. The Billboard referred “Growl” as the crown jewel and it sold over a million copies in 2013 alone. His other hits include SHINee's "Dream Girl" and Teen Top's "Supa Love."

"When I produce K-pop, I don’t only focus on the music," he said. "I consider the possibilities of the artist’s choreography and visual concepts. Also, I have to show the artist’s full capabilities within 3 minutes of a TV broadcast, so I focus all my production and vocal production centered around that aspect."

Jada Wong wants to attract Refinery29's audience to 2NE1

Why Everyone Should Be Listening To The Badass Ladies Of 2NE1

Fact: South Korean pop music has infiltrated American pop culture. After Psy's through-the-roof hit "Gangnam Style," more and more K-pop artists and groups have crossed the Pacific and made their marks stateside. Girl group f(x) "welcomed" Anna Kendrick as as their newest member, Big Bang took over Brooklyn for two music videos, and there's an entire section in Billboard dedicated to the K-pop scene. But, in an industry where the number of girl groups rival the number of instances in which Lady Gaga has made us go, well, gaga, it feels like all the ladies look and sound the same after a while. Perfectly executed singing and choreography with booty shorts, a cute-yet-sexy vibe, and a whole lotta hair flipping — it's like they're robots. Well, not 2NE1.

Girls’ Generation (Tiffany) Interviewed by ‘Dazed and Confused’



Last year, nine-piece Korean pop girlband Girls' Generation trounced the likes of Lady Gaga,Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus to win Video of the Year at the Youtube awards, evoking a meltdown on Twitter with the general consensus being “who the hell are Girls' Generation?!”.

Though debuting in 2007 as the "female Super Junior” it wasn't until the sugary electro-pop of 2009's "Gee" that Girls' Generation catapulted into superstar status. Forget PSY being the first K-pop star to wow the Americans, GG inked a contract with Universal in 2011 and went Stateside to perform on The David Letterman Show and at Madison Square Garden to critical acclaim.

i thought this interview was really good, especially this part about dating [spoiler]"Going public, it wasn't actually their choice. It was through the press and sometimes I do wish the press would respect when we'd want to release this news. We're serious, and we want to be serious about our work and our private lives as well."

Lee Junho of 2pm on Music Travel Yesterday



The word swoon comes to mind. His second Japanese solo tour was also recently announced!!!

Source: YT: MBCKpop


[OP's usual ramblings]I think Junho did a good job. He struggles with consistency and when he's nervous his voice goes flat and it can all just go very bad very quickly. Here he has very few wobbles so I thought it was a great performance vocal wise. I do wish he was more dynamic on stage but maybe he kept it low key because it was a mellow song.

However, Junho is Op's ultimate and only bias somehow. There's honestly no reason or rhyme to it. One day I just woke up and realized I stanned him more than the rest of 2pm and never found my way out of it. So anyway the bias is strong in me and I could be completely wrong.

Also, that ring? I would be so happy for him if he was dating but I suppose it's not the first time he's worn a ring there so it might just be my fangirl showing that I even noticed.

OT: About that airport fashion post. I finally started it so soon. Op is lazy and procrastinates.

Fly to the Sky Date Montage

Male duo Fly to the Sky recently reunited for a night out and appear to be potentially preparing for a comeback. Members Hwanhee and Brian shared photos of their guys’ night out.

On March 28, Hwanhee and Brian shared the photos of their hangout on Twitter. Brian captioned it with the message, “Spending a blazing Friday with Hwanhee for the first time in a while hehe. What are you all up to?”

It has been reported that the duo is preparing for a comeback sometime in the first half of this year and is currently working on their album. However, they have only revealed news about their reunion and little about their actual comeback plans and schedule.
