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)

20 Jun

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.

Yuri’s perfect figure

A photo of Girls’ Generation‘s Yuri at an opening event for a department store was uploaded on to an online community site and quickly became a hot topic.

In the photo, even though Yuri was wearing a loose-fiiting shirt, her figure could still clearly be seen. It was Yuri’s legs that caught netizens’ attention.

Fans commented, “Her beauty is really stunning”, “Her legs are so pretty”, “Her body is perfect even without Photoshop”, and “This is the definition of golden ratio”.

Girls Generation’s Yuri joins Super Junior’s Siwon for Mamonde.

30 Mar

On March 30th, Girls Generation‘s Yuri was officially announced to be the model for famous Korean cosmetic brand: Mamonde. This means Yuri and Super Junior‘s Siwon will both be the company’s facial representatives.

Mamonde’s producer, Amore Pacific said they put Yuri in to add a fresh energy to the brand. They said, “Yuri’s exceptional talent and popularity transcending gender and all ages make her the perfect model to represent Mamonde, a brand that’s gaining popularity not just in Korea but also China.”

Amore Pacific went on to say, “By adding Yuri, who has a clean and energetic image, we believe Mamonde’s image as a global brand will only be enhanced, especially with the help of Choi Siwon, who has been working as our first official male model since last year.”

Yuri has released a statement to express her gratitude of being the main model for the brand, “I’m happy to be the main model for Korea’s main cosmetic brand that I’ve been a long-time fan of. Please look forward to the many charms I’ll come up with Mamonde.”

It was just last year that Siwon had a 21-day skin repair tutorial series through Mamonde’s official YouTube channel. You watch the first video here:

SM Entertainment clears up Jessica’s plastic surgery rumours

29 Mar

Two photos surfaced recently on the internet entitled: ‘Jessica put on a little weight while talking a break from work, looks good.” One of the photos was taken at a recent SNSD concert in Malaysia, the other was from KBS2’s ‘Wild Romance’.

Because Jessica looked a lot thinner in the ‘Wild Romance‘ photo than than the concert photo, netizens continued to speculate that Jessica had had plastic surgery since filming ‘Wild Romance’.

Jessica”s agency, SM Entertainment decided to clear the rumours up once and for all and stated, “She definitely did not have plastic surgery.” They also said that during Jessica’s filming of ‘Wild Romance’, she had a very busy schedule and therefore became very thin; but now Jessica is a lot better and has had some rest so she has put on weight.

There is always the constant rumours of plastic surgery in K-pop. Do you think SM’s statement will put the netizens at rest.
