i have a white wish for boa

29 Oct

BoA released her PV for ~white wishes~ today.

Nothing extravagent, but she looks stunning! She really can make any hairstyle look good~

But what’s with the sudden costume change in the last 20 seconds? She’s wearing the same jacket as the one Ha Ji Won wore at Tablo’s wedding. 2 of my fav ladies sharing clothes?

Me likey


bommie, big bang, and a whole lotta music

29 Oct

It’s been a week of exciting releases this week. Actually, the past month has been epic!

Releases these couple of days:

Park Bom – “You & I”
First solo single from the lead vocalist of 2NE1.  I’ve followed her for quite a while, since her Anycall days and featurings on Big Bang’s first couple of singles.  “You & I” is a very solid single. The Teddy produced track however reminds me of Taeyang’s “Where U At”.  No bad thing though.

The MV is really sweet and colourful, which I didn’t expect.  Bommie seems to only have one expression… I still love her though ! ^_^

Big Bang – Koe Wo Kikasete (3rd Japanese Single)
omfg I LOVE this song. Now i’m a huge YG/BB/2NE1 fan so I may come across slightly bias, but woaaaah this song is by far their best Japanese release.  A really smooth sound, with an emphasis on TY. Non of that auto-tune/electro crap which they’ve been putting out for most of their Japanese releases.

Seo In Gook – 1st EPSeo In Gook
This dude is the winner of Mnet’s Superstar K.  I haven’t followed the show at all.  The EP has only 3 songs, but all have a great rnb vibe.  His voice is not particularly special, I could name a dozen male korean artists who I would rather listen to singing these tracks. Nonetheless, its a very good debut, and I’ll look out for him in the future.

There’s loads of other new/recent releases that should be checked out if you have similar taste of music to me.. i just don’t have enough time to review them .. got back from work at 11pm tonight.. *sigh* >_<

A mini album by Lyn, new duo December’s debut album, 4minute releasing the MV for “What a Girl Wants”, SeeYa‘s first album after the whole Nam Gyuri fiasco, Mighty Mouth‘s “Smile”, Verbal Jint.

And for non-korean music, there’s Brian McKnight’s amazing “Evolution of a Man”, Joss Stone‘s “Colour Me Free!”, and for c-pop fans, G.E.M Tang’s long awaited debut LP “18”.

I just recently bought a 64Gb iPod Touch cuz I had way too much music for my 16Gb one, but now I’m starting to run out of space again. arghh.. gotta love music 😀

october – new music month!

8 Oct

I’m gonna be a broke ass chigga after this month.  So many albums out/coming out and new, promising artists releasing this month – LeeSsang, wifey BoA, Dynamic Duo, Wheesung, Taeyang, Lady Collection (<3 Ji Eun), MBLAQ, B2ST – just to name a few.  R. Kelly and Brian McKnight (finally!) out next week too.

There’s a lot of trash (i.e. the many artists who jumped on the euro-dance, electro-pop and auto-tune bandwagon) being released by Korean artists.  But when they release new tracks through mini-albums and digital singles so frequently, there’s bound to be some gems, and if you’re lucky, they have originality and creativity.  It’s not just a Korean trend;  it’s the same for the HK/China music scene.

These idols are freakin machines!  If R. Kelly released a track every couple of weeks, I’m sure he’d finally run out metaphors for sex.

Can’t wait to get home, and listen to some Vocalate ~

bump bump! i want HD mvs!

7 Oct


BoA recently released her newest japanese single, Bump Bump! ft. m-flo, and I absolutely love it.  Well, I’m biased, since BoA was the reason why my interest in k-pop/entertainment turned hardcore.  The MV for her single was hot ~ And the song addictive (loved the sax) – so much better then her imo dissapointing American debut.

Anyone know where I can get a HQ/HD download of the MV?

I got a box of tissues ready.
