Wonder Girls on their US venture and new album~!


I’ve missed them, and so glad they’re going to be back~ (L)

In 2008, the Wonder Girls knocked on the door of the U.S. market and embarked on a long journey of self-discovery and growth. Though they were top stars in Korea, the girls were forced to start from the very bottom again with street performances.

Fast forward three years later, and we see the Wonder Girls return to Korea with some solid achievements under their belts. They’ve placed 76th on the Billboard Chart and became the first Korean artists to rank on the world-famous music barometer. They also completed a successful U.S. Tour, and filmed a movie with TV network, Teen Nick.

Prior to the official release of their 2nd album, Continue reading

SNSD confirms Korean comeback this September~


SNSD has confirmed their Korean comeback with their third official album next month!

*ahem* why do I feel like they are always here?

While taking part in the Hallyu wave over in Japan, the girls have been secretly working on their third album recordings. They’ve been balancing out a proper release date, and finally decided on September.

A representative revealed, “SNSD mentioned that they would be making their comeback this fall, but they’ve recently confirmed September as their comeback month. They’re still in the middle of recording, so they could adjust the date by a week or two.”

Fans will also be excited to hear that it won’t be a mini-album or a digital single, but a full fledged official album, their first in nearly a year and eight months.

Other entertainment labels are currently delaying comebacks and debuts in order to avoid direct competition. One representative said, “All the attention will be on SNSD anyway, so it’s useless to go head-to-head. On top of that, it’s an official album, so it’s likely that they will just sweep the charts.”

… Seriousy? That much fuss over SNSD… They’re not THAT great. Really. All they have is really good plastic surgery. Besides, none of them can sing except for Taeyeon. *sigh* someone needs to expose their lack of talent.
wow. I’m talking like an anti! Good for me. (But I’m not one… It’s too much effort to waste so much time hating on SNSD)

KBS receives harsh criticism for airing Korea’s first lesbian drama….


PEOPLE NEED TO CALM. THEIR. SHITT.

Seriously, why are Koreans so homophobic? It’s not that big of a deal… -.- I mean, HOW MANY OSCARS did Brokeback Mountain win? *ahem* A LOT.
Even Chinese and Japanese people are more lenient about LGBT’s. Maybe not as accepting as North America, some parts of Europe, etc. But better than this. And it’s quite disappointing that we’re living in the year  2011 and Korea has only now aired it’s first lesbian drama. Someone correct me, but has there been an actual Korean drama based on gay relationships? Personal taste left the gay guy lonely and centered around a boy-girl relationship. 

A new KBS drama called ‘Daughters of Club Bilitis‘ had viewers up in arms over the fact that it contained content relating to same-sex couples.

On August 7th, the drama premiered as Korea’s first ever lesbian one-act drama, illustrating the lives of three lesbian couples. The drama aimed to depict lesbian relationships across all generations, and thus tells the story of 50-year-olds Choi Ran and Choi Hyang Ja, 30-year-old career women Han Go Eun and Oh Se Jung, and high school students Jin Se Yeon and Ahn Ji Hyun.

Still, it’s valuable information and I bet there are people fighting on the forums right at this moment over how their favorite artist is over or underrated on this chart.
