New Kpop Group MBLAQ Album Finally Released

17 Oct

MBLAQ is a Kpop group that consists of five guys (Yang Seung Ho, Lee Joon, G.O, Mir (Cheol Yong), and Cheon Dung (Sandara from 2NE1’s little brother) and guess who they’re under? RAIN. BI RAIN.
Rain you are amazing. He sings, AND he has his own group..
Well he’s not in the group..but he owns them? xD

This song is called “Oh Yeah”. Personally I don’t like it very much…I just listened to it..and all i can remember is them saying “OH YEAH OH YEAH” over and over again.

This song is G.O.O.D Luv.

And this is My Dream.

New Kpop Group: HinT

20 Sep

Yes, I know. It’s another new Kpop group. -__-||
Okay this one is called HinT. The members include two guys and one girl, and their names are Ju In, Shin Gyu, and Yeun Gyung. I think this is my first time seeing a Kpop group that has both genders in it, so that’s pretty cool to me :]
I like some songs that have both girl and guy voices in them. So yeah.
The first video is the MV and the second is their debut, their live performance on M!Countdown.
Their debut song is actually pretty good too. It’s not as catchy as “T.T Dance” by HAM (LOL ham..)”Lachata” by f(x), or U.F.O by Telepathy? (or the other way round?), but it’s nice to listen to. It’s soothing like “Shelter” by Jaejoong and Yoochun…(if you want to listen to any of the songs I just named, just type it in the search box). The song is called “Passion’s Generation”, and it kind of sounds like an Epik High song at the beginning. This song is a good debut song for them.

HAM’s “T.T Dance” Debut

17 Sep

The new girl Kpop group Heart and Mind…or known as HAM..finally made their debut with “T.T Dance” on M! Countdown.

Well….the song was a disappointment. When I heard the teaser, they only played the chorus, which was bubbly and cute, and I kind of liked it. But then…I heard this debut…and the song started helllaaa different. WTF?

It started out as a Rock song, and then became the cute and cheerful chorus, which was really really bad. I mean…the Rock part didn’t sound bad, and the chorus wasn’t really bad either, but they put it together. If those two different parts were separated, and became two different songs (one Rock, and one bubbly), then they would sound okay….

Heartbreaker Album’s Plagiarism Issues

9 Sep

Remember those plagiarism accuses of G-Dragon’s Heartbreaker album? I thought they were gone already, but nope. They’ve come back.

An article on the album:
“The accusations have been so strong that several publishing companies have said they will investigate.

The title track of the album, “Heartbreaker,” is said to have a striking resemblance to Flo Rida’s “Right Round.” Also, the song “Butterfly” seems to be a rip- off of Oasis’ “She’s Electric.”

The rights to “Right Round” in Korea are controlled by four companies: Warner Chappell Music Korea, Sony ATV Publishing Korea, Fuji Pacific Music Korea, and EMI Music Publishing Korea.

Both Warner Chappell and Sony ATV said they have noticed the similarities and will check with the composers of “Right Round” for further investigation. However, EMI Music said it saw no similarity.

G-Dragon’s management company, YG Entertainment, has not made no official commentary.”
