[INFO] Korean Pop Night 2008 in Singapore

5 11 2008

Well, I am not going to write like a fangirl but just a rough rundown of what happened if I remembered correctly. About 90% of the stadium was filled and every seat had Korean Air clap sticks for us to show our support. The stage was quite small with not much space to work with. It was a fun concert overall.

Singapore K-Pop Concert on 4th November 2008

11 10 2008

This is not a hoax. I actually learnt about this Kpop concert in Singapore from an Anbiholic friend, RgalSteff a few weeks back but nothing was confirmed yet. Then she told me about the artistes that would be coming yesterday (subject to change) but I didn’t want to post it yet until it’s really confirmed.

“One More Time, OK?” No, Not Okay

6 10 2008


A few days ago, Sun Mi (Wonder Girls), Nam Gyu Ri (SeeYa), and Ga In (Brown Eyed Girls) performed a special stage together on MNet’s M Countdown. They sang and danced to Cheon Sang Ji Hee The Grace’s “One More Time, OK?” (”한번 더, OK?”), which was a hit in the summer of 2007.

While I wouldn’t consider CSJH “legends” (SM barely bothers with CSJH anymore and they’re still working in Japan at the moment), they have been around for longer. They also are a group of good singers and dancers, which is not something I can say about everybody performing in this bunch. Is it just me or does Sun Mi look very confused? And yes, this is only a group of three singers singing a song meant for four, but this new special stage version seems to lack a certain “oomph” that came with the original.

Check it out for yourselves:

And here’s CSJH doing a live version on Music Bank more than a year ago:

KBS Music Bank Revives Ranking Chart

4 10 2008

The KBS TV k-pop show Music Bank has revived a ranking system for singers.

It has been tallying separate chart rankings for albums, digital sound quality and viewer votes. But it will introduce a combined ‘K-Chart’ from its Friday edition.

Music Bank producer Yoon Hyeon-jun said, “The previous rankings were abolished due to disputed objectivity but the new system excludes subjective factors such as ARS votes that can be interfered with by fan power. We hope the revival can boost music programs and the record market and we are open to constructive criticism.”

The ‘K-Chart’ rankings will be based 50% on mobile and online digital sound quality, 30% on a 90,000 member panel vote and 20% on record sales.

    Korea’s Big 3 Advancing Full Force Into The US Market

    2 09 2008

    Korea’s Big 3 SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment and JYP Entertainment are all geared up for their advance into the American market.

    Both YGEnt and JYPEnt have both their local corporations in America with ‘YG Entertainment America’ and ‘JYP Entertainment USA’. And on 29th August, SMEnt also announced their own ‘S.M Entertainment USA, Inc’.


    All 3 companies have always been keen to advance into the America, as it was said to be have a huge pop music market that can be tapped on. Already, JYPEnt and YGEnt are into the marketing activities, and tying up with local corporations for collaborations.

    However, being unfamiliar with the American market and there is bound to be much higher risks when advancing into the market.

    JYP Entertainment have already planned to debut their female singer Min in America under JYP Entertainment USA and working with the famous producer there. Park Jin Young said at the opening of JYP Entertainment USA last June, “Asian singers and producers are now advancing into America by working with the coorperations here.”

    While YG Entertainment America is also now in the process working Se7en’s debut into America by inviting for local music producers and singers to work together. Se7en had already his preview party to his debut album in May in LA Hollywood Highlander Club. On the day of the preview party, one of the songs he performed was ‘You Got Me Now’. The song was the collaboration with Black Eyed Peas‘ producer Noize Trip. This song also features the country’s famous rapping duo Three Six Mafia.

    Back then Red Queen Media said, “Se7en’s first America album has got all the collaborations of the famour producers in America. Until now, all the 12 songs to the album are done. The album will also be released in English in Korea.”

    Korea’s Big 3 YG, JYP and SM Entertainment are all set to advance into the America. It’s just the matter of time.
