Hey guys,

This is Kenneth.

Finally! CLC is going to promote as a seven member girl group! Eunbean is finally participating!

Let’s us all watch the MV first!

First of all, I just want to say this, finally! My CLC fruit salad is now complete now that I’ve found out what kind of fruit Eunbean is.

CLC Fruit Salad Ingredients

Seunghee – Green Apple

Seungyeon  – Tangerine/Orange

Sorn – Watermelon

Yujin – Strawberry

Yeeun – Tomato

Elkie – Cherries

Eunbean – Lemon

Anyway, let us talk about the MV and the song. SORN is just so pretty there are no more words to describe her perfection. I just like how consistent CLC’s music videos styles are, it gives CLC their own style when it comes to music videos, well, such videos are CUBE Ent caliber tho, but still. Now, Elkie, fvcking Elkie! I just knew there’s something about her, her freaking high notes! why is that!? Cube! How come you’ve kept that from us all this time? Seunghee is still noticeable with her vocals tho, but still, Elkie is another force to reckon with! Yujin looks nice in short hair, Yeeun still had the same styling tho, but her rap part is so catchy! Seungyeon is as charismatic as ever! and of course, the cutiepie Eunbean, which I think needs to practice more in dancing, I can see her awkward gestures tho. But all in all, CLC is now a complete package!
Anyway, here’s something new, HIGH HEELS LIVE AS SEVEN MEMBERS! Eunbean is freaking here!
Refreshing, isn’t it? Now here’s something more refreshing, ‘No oh oh’ live, just watch how Elkie kills the high note!

 

A cute back-up track, ‘One two three’.

Congratulations, CLC! The 4th mini album ‘Nu.CLEAR’ is a success! 6 out of the 6 tracks are all remarkable, kudos to these hard working girls! I wish you girls success, CLC Fighting!

[20160313] An all new improved and refreshed CLC!

CLC-REFRESH

Hey guys,

 This is Kenneth.

Let me introduce CUBE Entertainment’s maknae group, CLC! Well, this time around, they’re not coming back as a quintet, CLC is back as a septet! Introducing the two new members, Elkie (Chong Ting Yan) from Hong Kong and Produce 101 participant, Kwon Eunbin.

On March 19th this year, CLC will be turning one year old! CLC debuted with ‘Pepe’ (I really love this song) on March with their first mini album ‘First Love’, had a follow up track, ‘Eighteen’ on April, and came back with a mini album, ‘Question’ and promoted with the title track ‘Like’ (Curious) on May. So basically, CLC promoted three months straight.

Even though CLC came from a known company, the girls had a rough start. Their popular members Sorn (Thai member) and Seunghee (somehow for her beauty) wasn’t enough for the netizen’s satisfaction, CLC got into controversies, concerning youngest member Yeeun, as she was allegedly accused of acting rude towards labelmate and senior, BTOB. Since then, CLC got into a ten month hiatus (excluding their overseas activities).

Well, that’s enough, let’s cut the crap, CLC is a talented girl group, no doubt! Now, here’s CLC’s comeback music video, ‘High Heels’.

Sad to say, this is only a short version as CUBE temporarily removed Eunbin’s cuts as she is still participating in the survival program, ‘Produce 101’. The members covered for her singing parts which is making me curious, I wonder which are her parts.

Well, as for now, I am having a very close eye on to this group, CLC still has a long way to run, there are other better groups out there, CLC still needs to hit the jackpot for them to prosper in the business. Anyway, I wish them all the best, CLC Fighting!

[20160114] KKMA 2015 BEST FEMALE ROOKIE GROUP

Standard

KENNO’S KPOP MUSIC AWARDS 2015 BEST FEMALE ROOKIE GROUP

GFRIEND

Source Music’s 6 member girl group GFRIEND is the Best Rookie Girl Group of 2015! GFRIEND proved everyone that they’re not just a bunch of pretty faces, they’re talented and all are pros. GFRIEND might had a very rough start, from the nose job issues, to member SinB’s resemblance to Jessica (basically, some are saying she’s using the opportunity for attention), lip syncing and even Umji’s appearance shaming. These false accusations all vanished when GFRIEND exuded their hidden talents and their spirit of professionalism. GFRIEND once made international headlines when the group’s infamous ‘slipping on stage’ fancam went viral online, all the members, except leader Sowon slipped on stage, SinB had one bad fall while Yuju had 5 bad falls but kept performing. GFRIEND garnered praised for their act of professionalism.

GFRIEND’s music are no joke as well, even though a lot of netizens are criticizing them for not having singing talents except for the members Eunha and Yuju, GFRIEND’s songs are really worth listening to. My favorites are White, Glass Bead and Me Gustas Tu.

GFRIEND is prepping up for a January comeback, teasers are out and I’m really excited! I wish GFRIEND all the best.

Trailing really close to GFRIEND is JYP Entertainment’s newest girl group, TWICE. TWICE is a multi-national girl group, members are composed of Korean, Japanese and Taiwanese members. We all know that these girls battled it out at the survival program, SIXTEEN, just for them to debut.

Twice debuted with their hit track, “Like Ooh Aah”. When it was released on October, it went straight up to the charts, even today, their song is still going strong in various music charts. I actually liked their choreography, it matches every member well.

In my personal thoughts, member Tzuyu seemed to be following the same career path Miss A’s Suzy is going through, I hope this won’t overshadow the members. Tzuyu is currently in a controversy but I hope this doesn’t affect the group’s status. Members Nayeon, Jungyeon and Mina are all pretty, I think Mina is more likely to be my bias. I wish Twice all the best this year.

I was arguing with myself whether to place April, Oh My Girl or Lovelyz on the third spot, but in the end, it was April in the third spot for me.

April had a strong debut, there were so many expectations in the 6 member girl group of DSP Media. ‘Dream Candy’ did pretty well in the charts too, probably because of Chaewon and Somin’s fans from Baby Kara and Puretty. I was in love with the song as well.

Apparently, leader Somin left the group to pursue some other dream of hers. Leaving the 5 member APRIL behind. When April returned with ‘Muah’, it felt a little bit empty without Somin, Chaewon and Jinsol obviously did all the singing. April have good chances in surviving in this industry, I hope DSP Media would get back to their senses and promote their artists better. Kara had disbanded, Rainbow still needs to be promoted as they are not yet established well enough, AJAX too. I wish APRIL all the best and please give Yena real singing lines, she just had a two-syllable line in the entire song with ‘Muah’, the “Omo”. She’s a member not a back-up dancer. APRIL FIGHTING!

Notable Nominees:

  • Lovelyz
  • Oh My Girl
  • CLC
  • The Ark
