Hey guys,

This is Kenneth!

HyunA’s back!

Before anything else, without further ado, here’s your heroine, HyunA.

First of all, I would like to congratulate HyunA for killing the charts with her recent release. Its a great surprise that HyunA is still doing well with her number of supporters despite the disbandment of her resident group, 4Minute.

So yeah, after the disbandment of 4Minute, HyunA came back with her 5th mini album ‘A’wesome’. The mini album consists of six tracks, with her title song ‘How’s this?’.

About the song, its catchy and it makes you want to party, seriously, that’s the feeling. Even though, somehow, it really reminds me of her past tracks, ‘Rolling Deep’ and ‘Change’.

About the music video, to be honest, Cube really spent a lot for the production, I mean, look at the amount of dancers, HyunA’s wardrobe as well seems to cost quite a few numbers. Hmm, nevermind the kiss.

Well, about the dance, there is no doubt in HyunA’s dancing prowess, I trust her on that.

I am actually loving the album art this time too.

So yeah, even though HyunA released multiple number of songs and promoted quite a few already, her song ‘Red’ only managed to give her a number 1 on music shows (Well, on a music show, Show Champion). So, are we expecting a win with ‘How’s this?’. Nevertheless, its a job well done, HyunA.

 

[20160204] 4MINUTE bringing HATE with No Love

Standard

Hey guys,

This is Kenneth.

4MINUTE made a double comeback stage today at M! Countdown with their sub-track “No Love” and title track “Hate”.

First of all, I would like to point out these lines from the song that definitely made 4Minute’s kongrish look bad, MNET did a lil bit of an error in editing. The lines in the screen were “I’m sing it good bye”, which was actually “I’m singing it goodbye”, and “I don’t wanna ever loose”, which was actually “I don’t wanna ever lose”.

To be very honest, I’m not a fan of Sohyun’s styling, her hair reminded me so much of ‘Muzik’. Gayoon’s voice totally carried the performance all throughout the song, Jiyoon and HyunA’s rap were at its finest. Man! I’ve just praised Jihyun for her beauty in their HATE MV and wow, just wow, she looks so beautiful here, she’s definitely the visual of the group, and she had a few lines as well. Overall, the performance was nice.

4MINUTE IS SLAYING! HyunA definitely redeemed her visual spot in this live perf, sorry Jihyun, HyunA went from 10 to 100, real quick. Sohyun, had the perfect look best suited for her in this performance as well. Jihyun reminded me of ‘I My Me Mine’ era, while Gayoon and Jiyoon reminded me of ‘Heart to Heart’ Japanese era.

I would go easy on the since its their first comeback stage for ‘Hate’, but it was pretty obvious that they weren’t singing live, though I think Gayoon was, but other than her, the rest were just lip syncing. I know that during the first week of promotions, returning idols tend to lip sync since they’re still resting their voices from the recording and all the practices they had and what have you. Well, I’m just glad the girls have shown a great performance today.

Lets show more love and support for these girls, 4Minute fighting!

[20160202] 4MINUTE, Love or HATE?

Standard

4minuteHATE

Hey guys,

This is Kenneth.

Since I’m a die hard multi-fandom kpop fan, I’ll be taking this time to talk about 4MINUTE’s latest release, ‘싫어’ (HATE). After the success of ‘Crazy’ in 2015, Cube Entertainment’s ace girl group, 4minute, came back with their 7th mini album, ‘Act. 7’. Not to mention, the girls have worked with ‘Skrillex‘ for their title track, Hate. Their 7th Mini Album has 4 tracks, Hate, No Love, Blind and Canvas, plus Hate’s instrumental version.

Before I further talk about and fanboy over 4Minute, here’s the music video.

Do you love it? or do you hate it?

Anyway, I’m really really happy that 4MINUTE is actually going for this type of concept again, I mean, its obvious that its a little bit similar to ‘CRAZY’, right? but who cares? both are great! 4Minute is slaying this concept, that’s important. Now about the song, THE BEAT IS SO SICK! and that beat drop, WOW! You will automatically dance! It had a slight feeling of ‘CRAZY’, but it was even better.

I was actually glad that this time, the music video had colors, even though its pretty monochromatic with all the red, white and black all around. Nam Leader actually stood out because of her blonde hair, which is quite good. Talking about the girls, dang! Sohyun was burning, is she really the maknae? how can she be that sexy? Gayoon was still elegant no matter what, she really looks expensive. That bad girl HyunA, of course, she’s freaking HyunA, no need to explain further. As expect from Jiyoon, she got swag, Jiyoon is very sexy in her black leatherish outfit as well, and of course, I was fanboying so hard when NAM LEADER sang twice! I mean, seriously, finally, Jihyun is singing more, her solo shots were perfection as well, she is sooooo gorgeous! that bathtub scene got me going nuts! I would like to commend the music video director for that, you are amazing! job well done! JJANG!

4Minute’s contract is expiring this year, so I believe that the girls’ future with Cube Entertainment somehow depends on the success of this mini album.

Here’s what the girls has to say regarding their contract expiration:

Gayoon: “Honestly, because the members were preparing for the album, we didn’t get to talk a lot about the contract . . . We had a lot of concerns while preparing this album.  One great concern was about whether we should go forth more strongly or change things up music-wise.  We never talked well and in detail about the contract.”

Jihyun: “I believe that this album will be a big influential factor of a contract renewal.  Wouldn’t we be more for it if this album does well?  We stated this a lot with the people at the company, too.”

Well, the music video was doing fine since it already reached a million views in less than 24 hours, but, the title song is not doing very well in music charts so far. (While writing this entry the highest ranking for ‘Hate’ is 2nd in Mnet and Olleh Music, GFRIEND and WINNER are both battling it out for the 1st place in the several charts) But, I believe in the power of the 4NIAS.

Please show lots of love and support in this mini album! 4Minute fighting! 4nias fighting!

[20160117] Fly So High!

Hey guys,

This is Kenneth.

For today’s song suggestion, I would like to recommend, United Cube’s ‘Fly so High’.

This song features Cube Entertainment artists BEAST, 4Minute and G.Na. During the time it was released BTOB haven’t debuted yet so they didn’t took part in singing the feel good song.

Whenever I listen to this song, I usually get a quick boost, which I really don’t know why. The chorus is like cheering me up or something. That’s the exact feeling when you listen to it. So, I hope you guys can try and listen to it as well specially when you need a very quick boost for the day 😜

🙋

Hey Guys,

This is Kenneth.

Born and raised in the Philippines on July 13th 1994, so basically I am now 21 years old. I am currently a 3rd year student of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Pulilan Campus taking up Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship.

I opened this personal blog so that I can be able to convey my feelings, thoughts and ideas I have in mind. To be honest, I am not that really good with such things but I’m here to explore the things that I can possibly do.

Hmm.. I guess, I have to tell a little bit more something about myself huh?

Kenneth is an alien, when I say alien, it means that the stuffs I do sometimes are out of this world that annoys other people lol. I love eating (well, who doesn’t), I love green stuffs (don’t get me wrong) my favorite color is green, hmm I’m a bit narcissistic (well, I love myself), I’m an active leader in our campus and I have represented our campus in various events/programs already, the Class President (in our class) and the acting Student Council President of the campus (there isn’t actually a formal election or stuff, our Director actually appointed me when I was in first year lol), during my free time I enjoy playing Clash of Clans, and most of all, I LOVE KPOP!

If we are going to talk about KPOP, I guess this post will not be enough. I’ve been a kpop fan ever since 2009, it started when I heard the news about my first love Sandara Park, I heard that she debuted in Korea as part of the girl group 2NE1. I have loved Dara ever since her SCQ days in the Philippines that is why I was so happy to learn about her new found career in her own nation, South Korea. The first 2NE1 song I’ve heard was “Lollipop” with BIGBANG, followed by the very addictive tracks Fire and I Don’t Care then the rest is history.

Today, I can really call myself a multi-fandom type of a kpop fan. After discovering 2NE1, it opened a lot of doors in the kpop industry for me, I couldn’t even remember when I started being a fan of other kpop groups that I’m into nowadays. After 2NE1 in 2009, there came a very similar talented group that just like 2NE1 I’ve started rooting for them even before they debuted, that group is BTOB. There are a lot of talented groups in Kpop but until now even if others may disagree, I would say that for me 2NE1 and BTOB is in the same level, same level of charisma, talent and they just both overflow with this feeling I can’t even explain by words. Until today, even if I’m loving so many groups now, only 2NE1 and BTOB had that impression for me.

Should I at least enumerate all the Kpop groups I’m a fan of? First, those whom have complete songs in my playlist, in the first tier 2NE1 and BTOB! I have all of their songs, pre-debut songs and even if they’re just featured in a song, my biases are Park Bom (I miss you Bommie!) and Peniel respectively.

Third tier, BIGBANG, bias is Seungri, 4Minute, bias is Jiyoon, BEAST, bias is Hyunseung, APINK, bias is Bomi, EXO, biases are Baekhyun and D.O, Rainbow bias is Jisook, KARA, bias is Seungyeon.

Fifth tier, Miss A bias is Fei, DMTN, bias is Jeesu, APRIL, bias is Yena, LEGEND, bias is Jaehyuk, SISTAR, bias is Dasom, Red Velvet, bias is Joy, SHINee, bias is Jonghyun, Ladies Code, bias is Rise (rest in peace, my angel)

Can you guys even imagine how many songs I have in my playlist? lol. Anyway, I’ve been writing my first post for like 2 hours though HAHAHA.

Hmm.. at this rate, I think I’ve been talking for so long already so I’ll be ending my first post with this closing commemoration quote from me, “speak without judging, think with understanding”.

See you again!
