My response to Yang Hyun Suk’s “The idol-fad is over”

30 Sep

CEO of YG Entertainment, Yang Hyun Suk was interviewed recently and in one portion of the interview he said that the “idol fad” is over. Of course this has given kpop fans a lot to think about and made me want to write a post responding to what YG said. I think, it’s best that you read the article if you have not done so already before you read my response. 🙂

When reading this article, my greatest confusion was over the word “fad” lol. Either Yang Hyun Suk actually did say this or it was put in the translation. What I think he meant by this is that the idol “era” is over, or idols being the centre of success in the music industry is over. Idols are the most successful and carry the hallyu wave strongly than ever today. But is this all over? Continue reading

My Complete BIAS List (Top 20)

My Bias List..

KPOP Terminology: “Bias”: the favourite group a kpop fan has or the favourite member of said group the kpop fan has 🙂

This is a concept that kpoppers get very excited when talking about it. The list of top favourite groups and their biases from those groups. This subject is something that I find very interesting when hearing about others’ bias lists and I always have fun sharing mine on the internet in some form. I’ve never done it in full though, so as someone who loves a wide spectrum of k-pop groups, my bias list is long but I will only explain my absolute top groups that I follow the most and love the most and get me excited the most! The rest I will include in a less detailed form.

My bias list will include my fav groups (from most favourite to least favourite); my bias in that group and my favourite song from that group.

So… here we go! Continue reading

Kim Tae Won asks Jay Park: “Aren’t you a part of 2PM?”

30 Mar

On yesterday’s episode of Mnet’s ‘Beatles Code 2’, MC Kim Tae Won asked quite a shocking question to Jay Park regarding the group, 2PM. Everyone on the studio seemed to be shocked by this question.

Kim Tae Won asked, “Aren’t you 2PM? Aren’t you part of the group?” Kim Tae Won seemed to really not know what happened three years ago. Jay Park was the leader of 2PM to begin with but he left the group back in late 2009 because of a scandal.

Jay Park however, handled the situation quite well and responded to Kim Tae Won in a polite way saying that he was no longer a part of the group. Kim Tae Won then went on to shockingly ask why Jay Park had decided to part ways with the agency.

Other MCs on the show then started to voice their complaints, asking him why he had brought up such a sensitive topic. Kim Tae Won replied, “I’m just trying to make him less nervous.”

Jay Park responded by saying, “A lot of things happened back then and now I work alone.” He then went on to say, “Working solo, instead of being part of a group, has its advantages because I get to make music that I want to try.”

Kim Tae Won asked, “Was this hard to do in a group?” Jay responded, “Because it’s a team. I can’t be selfish.”
