[20160602] No more an ‘Up and Down’ upgrade, EXID is back, fresh!

Hey guys,

This is Kenneth.

Finally! The phenomenal sexy idols are back, this time with their first studio album ‘street’!. Their first studio album has 13 tracks, these girls worked so hard for this album that is why, without any doubt, this just got to be one of EXID’s best release ever!

Well, I guess, EXID’s team is just creative and very open minded that’s why they always come up with slightly provocative music videos, but for me, its all A.R.T! Without further ado, this is EXID’s L.I.E MV!

Junghwa made me drool all over the place, how could a maknae be that sexy? Oh my! My baby Hyerin is still cute no matter what she does tho. Solji is freaking haaaaawwwwwttt as well! Hani is still the same, hot as ever, just had a little upgrade with that bob-cut. Lastly, LE, never lets me down with her impressive rap.

Now, I want to give shout out to those people who said that this concept didn’t match EXID’s style. Lemme ask you, when ‘Up and Down’ became sensational, everybody else wanted something to continue the girls’ hype, ‘Ah Yeah’ was then released, others liked it, it even increased EXID’s popularity, but on the other hand, others said its just ‘U&D 2.0’, basically an upgrade of ‘Up and Down’. Then later on they released ‘Hot Pink’ and people said its ‘U&D 3.0’. Now that EXID released L.I.E, people are saying that the girls sounded different this time and it doesn’t suit them, WHHHHYYYYYYYY???!!!! Seriously now, the hypocrisy level of these people are so freaking high they’re starting to be stupid.

Anyway, lets talk about the other tracks, since it has so many songs, I found it hard to choose my favorite one, well for being bias tho, I loved Hyerin and Junghwa’s duet song, ‘냠냠쩝쩝’. I just thought that they’ve released this a lil bit early, this maknae line wanted to debut in a sub-unit and promote with a cute concept, this song could have been their debut song if ever, why did they have to release it now tho. Anyway, LE is the only one without a solo track tho, Hani and Solji has one each and the maknae line had a duet, I wonder tho. Anyway, this album is a highly recommendable to everyone who wants to listen to something new and refreshing.

Well, I guess its not enough just to see the mv, here’s the live performance.

Hani is so, ugh. Hyerin, why so cute tho. I just had to watch  closely at the dance break, just so sexy!

Well, EXID had also shown their other side, they could be sweet singers too!

Congratulations, EXID! I wish you girls all the best, all the best for your first ever studio album, I wish you more success. EXID fighting!

[20160112] KKMA 2015 BEST FEMALE GROUP

KENNO’S KPOP MUSIC AWARDS 2015 BEST FEMALE GROUP

GIRLS’ GENERATION

There is no doubt that Girls’ Generation owned 2015! With the release of Party on July, the girls officially came back and promoted as a group after Jessica’s departure in 2014. The success of Girls’ Generation with Party wasn’t short-lived, another hit song was released on August, Lion Heart. Leader, Taeyeon, had a very busy 2015 as well as she made her solo debut with ‘I’. As expected, Taeyeon swiped all the music charts and garnered the most no.1 wins on music shows. Sub-unit TTS, also showered sones with love when they released the ‘Christmas Special Album – Dear Santa’ just before the year ends.

P.S: Taeyeon had been the most busy member in 2015, she is preparing for another solo comeback this 2016 as well. Take care of your health my girls.

And the runners up were, EXID and SISTAR respectively.

EXID proved in 2015 that they are now one of the Hallyu Wave representatives. As we all know, EXID became a hot topic after Hani’s infamous fancam went viral, as of today, the fancam has 18 million hits on YouTube. Their hit song, ‘Up and Down’ which was originally released on August 2014 came to light late 2014 and early 2015, that is why EXID snagged their no.1 music program wins on January 2015. The girls did not let their hype went down, they released ‘Ah Yeah’ on April 2015, and as expected, the song made them reach the top it even got them their own program, EXID’s Showtime in July. EXID’s triple kill offering is, “Hot Pink”, released November 2015.

In my personal thoughts, I would say that EXID deserved the sudden recognition, they are versatile (even if it somehow doesn’t show through their title tracks which some netizens claimed that are very sounding alike, Solji and Hyerin are both good vocals) and each member are equally talented, though Junghwa needs to improve her singing a little bit more.

SISTAR came very close to EXID. Promotion wise, EXID over shadowed them. Musicality wise, SISTAR almost defeated Girls’ Generation and went miles ahead of EXID. But for me, SISTAR didn’t had too much attention this 2015. Hyorin in Unpretty Rapstar was not a good idea, yes she was on point at some point, but damn, she is one of Korea’s best vocalists ever why would she attempt on Hip-Hop? Soyou had a busy year though. I really liked ‘Shake it’, the music video, the choreography, the stage outfits and everything, but then again, they lacked promotion duration, they could have came up with another follow up song but they did not.

Notable nominees:

  • Red Velvet
  • AOA
  • Apink
  • Girls’ Day

First up, y’all hold your horses! CL is coming back and she’s saying “Hello Bitches!”.

Well at first, everybody else thought, including me, that the WHO’S NEXT teaser image from YG-LIFE is going to be a 2NE1 comeback, but at least its CL. Besides, a rep from YG said that if CL’s solo comeback would be successful, they’ll start working on 2NE1’s comeback right away. I don’t know if the rep was drunk or out of his mind, its CL for pete’s sake, of course CL will SLAY! Now YG, make sure to give us a good 2NE1 comeback after CL’s solo comeback!

The most awaited comeback! EXID! Hyerin, I still find you cute no matter what. It was definitely a HOT comeback! Solji’s vocals, LE’s rap, Hani’s sexiness, Junghwa’s prettiness and of course Hyerin’s cuteness. How can you not love these girls? You’ll get trophies soon, my girls.

The Legend also had their comeback stage, Changsun had many lines here while Roi had very little. Lito’s rap is really improving now, Listen’s high notes are still cringe worthy. And of course, Jaehyuk. A very very clean performance.

Till my next recap, see you!

First up, just an hour ago EXID released their Digital Single Album’s HOT PINK MUSIC VIDEO!!!

After an hour of being released, the music video already has 100k views on YouTube! Way to go EXID! But to be honest, since this is the first time I’ve listened to Hot Pink, I would say that I still like Up and Down even more. Hot Pink has the same vibe as Ah Yeah tho.

Hyerin just killed me, she was so hot and cute at the same time. I like Hani’s hair because its green! LE, of course with her undying swag and fierce looks. Moreover her voice, Solji’s legs were the highlight. And of course Junghwa, well Junghwa is pretty no doubt, pink hair suits her so well. I guess Tiffany would seriously love this song since its pink, take note, not just pink, but Hot Pink.

Congratulations on your comeback then, EXID. You go tell them who’s HOT in PINK!

Next on our recap, VIXX’ Chained Up first win! Congratulations VIXX!

Last but definitely not the least, my girls from RaNia performed in SBS MTV The Show as well, these girls are slaying! Specially Alex! DI looked so hot in red, she screams sex to be honest. Xia and T-ae still looks cute to me no matter what, even though both of them aren’t maknaes anymore lol. Hyeme looks like Gain doesn’t she? She’s as sexy as her too. Seulji is so fluffly bye. I wish RaNia success and more attention they deserve!

Disclaimer: EXID’s Hot Pink MV was released 12:00AM KST (November 18th) which is still 11:00PM in my country so basically, its still on the 17th.

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.

Second tier, Girls’ Generation, biases are Hyoyeon and Taeyeon. AOA, bias is ChoA, VIXX, bias is Ken.

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.

Fourth tier, RaNia, bias is Alex, G-FRIEND, bias is Yuju, C-Clown, bias is Ray (too bad they disbanded), Girls Day, bias is Minah, WINNER, bias is Jinwoo, Orange Caramel, bias is Raina, GOT7, bias is Yugyeom (Happy Birthday Yugyeom!), F(x), bias is Luna, Dal Shabet, bias is Woohee, EXID, bias is Hyerin

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)

Special mentions: 9Muses, Noh Jihoon, G.NA, IU, Lee Hi, Joo, N-White, Spica, Hello Venus, Ailee, Tiny-G, Chocolat, U-Kiss, Secret, T-ARA, Playback, Twice, SKarf, CNBLUE, Gummy, BTS, NU’EST, Eric Nam, SE7EN, Wonder Girls, Davichi, Jewelry, Tablo, F-VE Dolls, G.I and Akdong Musician.

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!
