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

EXO Kai Featured in Inkigayo Magazine

25 Jun

exo kai

Oh My Gosh ~ EXO were featured in Inkigayo magazine and I just love the way that they described Kai!
“He makes eye contact with everyone in the audience on a regular basis and he doesn’t hesitate to express his affection with his cool and low voice that makes you want him to speak more… The best way to describe the charms of Kai is “undefinable”.”

EXO were featured in the June 2012 issue of Inkigayo magazine.

Check out Kai‘s part here…

Kai

Birthdate : 1994. 1. 14

Blood Type :  A

Psychic Powers : Teleportation

Position : Main Dancer

Speciality : Dance (ballet, jazz, hip hop, popping, locking)

How many singers are capable to give a dramatic feeling with their dance are there? There is no other word but “art” to use to describe the god-given aptitude Kai possesses. When he gets on stage, his unique dreamlike gaze gets wild, you can see a dark aura coming from him. Moreover, if you look at his appearance capable to make a puppet of his fans, you would think he and the maknae Sehun do ‘oppa cosplay’. Even with his pokerface that gives a strong impression and makes it impossible to know what’s inside of him, this man is surprisingly famous for his breathtaking fan service…

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

what you’ll see from wowkpop

29 May

Yes! That’s right! I will be making some changes… but have no fear ~ they will be AWESOME!

When I first set up wowkpop I had all these ideas for it, that it was going to be quite personal so I could be interract and talk with my followers but it turned out that that wasn’t the case. I had a few Op-Ed’s but most of the news I would put up, I tried to keep completely unbiased ~ like I was writing a proper news article.

It was actually during my haitus that I figured that all my blog posts mainly consisted of was kpop news ~ I thought with other sites like allkpop, soompi, hellokpop,omgkpop, blah blah blah… WHY would they come here for their kpop news? I figured that if I wanted wowkpop to do well, I had to make it different. Posting up kpop news like other sites just wouldn’t do, plus I am not interested in EVERY SINGLE kpop group under the eastern sun and I think my biases were showing anyway, especially since they were promoting around the time I was operating wowkpop.

But NOW… I know the direction that wowkpop will take. From now on, there will be all Op-Eds instead of kpop news on every idol. And still have no fear because it will be awesome. And because they are my opinion, I will be fangirling A LOT (i need this) lol ~ and because I will be fangirling a lot, I will obviously be talking about my biases, but don’t worry cuz they are mostly your biases TOO seeing  as I like almost all the kpop groups ~ seriously! Here are some of my faves:

BIGBANG; Super Junior; EXO; SHINee; Girls Generation; f(x); TVXQ; MBLAQ; Rain; IU; Jay Park; Lee Hyori; 4minute; T-ara; Infinite; U-Kiss; Rania; 2NE1; loads more…

So as you can see, I have lot of kpop biases 🙂 As you can see by the tags I’m really into BIGBANG (my forever #1 ~ VIPs FTW) and EXO right now but there will be a range of Op-Eds. I already have a few planned and have been thinking a lot about them so PLEASE look forward to my interesting opinions and CRAZY FANGIRL RANTS.

AND… WE’RE BACK!!

29 May

That’s right!! wowkpop is finally BACK!! I am very excited.

First of all I would like to say thank you to those who waited for the comeback of wowkpop! I really appreciate it.

Secondly I want to apologise for my absence but now I would explain in full for those who have not read the text in the side bar…

So basically, I had a two weeks break from college and I spent a lot of that time working on that blog and becoming completely and utterly obsessed with EXO. My mother would always ask what I was doing and I would tell her that I was working on this blog but she never did see the importance of this blog and at one point threatened to take my laptop away (mostly cuz I needed to prepare for my upcoming exams). A similar situation happened with a fellow blogger friend of mine (shout out to exotown!) where her mom actually DID take away all internet access from her 😦 . It was at that point that it hit me because I saw great things happening for this blog, so I decided to reluctantly  take a break from this blog… the last thing I wanted was my laptop taken away. If you want to survive, you do not take internet access away from an obsessed  kpop fangirl so… I completely stopped this blog that I LOVED doing and I completely took myself away from me2day which I was also on a lot (i managaed to somehow get myself a twitter addicition in the process but that’s another story lol) and 6 weeks went by where I  prepared for my exams (which are all done with as of today). Now I’m back with some crazy new ideas of how this blog is actually going to take a dramatic turn soooo… LOOK FORWARD TO IT!!

Since my time is up as the comeback was supposed to be at 7 on the dot and it’s now 7:09 I will stop here…

But be sure to stay for my next post which will be up very soon, telling you how this blog will be going through awesome changes and another project which you could possibly participate on whcih will be up by the end of the week!

And don’t forget to leave a comment below! It seriously does make me even more of a happy fangirl when you leave a comment
