[20161203] All hail the dancing queen Hyoyeon!

Standard

Hey guys,

This is Kenneth.

This is definitely a good news to me, well, even though I’m still devastated by 2NE1’s disbandment, life goes on right? Well, thanks to Hyoyeon I am starting to appreciate kpop even more.

My queen Hyoyeon just released her first ever solo single, ‘Mystery’.

She looks elegantly feisty and sexy, doesn’t she? Anyway, without further ado, here is Hyoyeon’s majestic music video.

To be honest, Hyoyeon has been behind the shade of her members ever since, she was really underrated. But damn, I am just so proud of her, she proved ’em all wrong! Her full potential is overflowing and screaming! I bet SM Entertainment had been served good after this, now they can finally see how HYOYEON could be the complete package!

About the song, its really catchy, I like music too it sounds a bit middle eastern, very unique for a KPOP song. About the dance, of course, this is a given fact, Hyoyeon is a queen in dancing, she nailed it!

Proof? Here’s her live performance today.

Wow, until now I can’t believe myself that Hyoyeon was the third SNSD member to promote and debut as a solo artist, I am so proud of you my queen!

Anyway, not too long ago, Hyoyeon debuted in a unit with Jo Kwon and Min as ‘Triple T’ too. Hyoyeon slayed there, maybe that’s why SM thought Hyoyeon is ready for a solo debut too.

Then again, my Dancing Queen, Hyoyeon! Congratulations on your Solo Debut! I wish ‘Mystery’ would be a hit! I love you!

[20160703] WHY is Taeyeon is killing the game?

Standard

CljuroIWMAAPDIk

Hey guys,

This is Kenneth.

Our Kid Leader Taengoo is back! After the success of ‘I’, Taeyeon came back with her second mini album, ‘Why’! The second mini album has seven tracks, one track even features my bias, Hyoyoen! Well, Taeyeon is my second bias in Girls’ Generation tho, so the featuring track is a nice gift from my girls.

Anyway, prior to the release of the second mini album, Taeyeon gave everyone a sneak peek of the album through ‘Starlight’ MV featuring Dean.

Well, even though I envy Dean a lot, I might say, he and Taeyeon has good chemistry. The song gives a nice and warm vibe as well.

Now, here’s for the main event, ‘Why’ Music Video!

I don’t know what to say, Taeyeon is so PERFECT! This music video is everything!

Well in fact, the live performance is so much better!

Look at her moves! She’s definitely killing the game! Too bad she’s just going to promote for a week, because our kid leader is preparing for her solo concert. But still, thank you for slaying, Kim Taeyeon!

Since I really love my fellow sones, I’ll be gifting you these free downloads.. But, of course, if given the chance, please do purchase Taeyeon’s album in the official music downloading sites and I guess its available on iTunes now!

Just click on the song title, this is a direct download!

[20160214] Miracles happened on Valentine’s Day

Standard

restmb_jhidxmake

Hey guys,

This is Kenneth.

A miracle happened on Valentine’s Day! Wow! Yuju is my bias in GFRIEND and Sungjae is my second bias in BTOB, that is why I’m really happy about this collaboration stage

Here’s the historic special stage:

I just don’t like the thumbnail picture SBS Inkigayo had used, look at Sungjae’s face, it seemed like he’s just doing a troll face lol.Well, Yuju had been really vocal about how she wanted to have a duet with Sungjae ever since, and now it happened. They are pretty good, aren’t they?

Another funny thing is that, when you search ‘Sungjae Yuju’ on google, my picture would appear lol.

lol

Anyway, I’m extra happy today because Taeyeon is no.1 on today’s SBS Inkigayo, too bad she didn’t perform.

Congratulations, Taeyeon! Wow you won on Valentine’s day, that’s extra special!

 

[20160203] Taeyeon, dreaming in the RAIN

Standard

Taeyeon_1453944398_taeyeon2nd

Hey guys,

This is Kenneth.

This 2016 probably is my year as a multi-fandom kpop fan, I’ve been blessed with so many eargasmic music that has been taking over my music playlist. Talking about music that gives eargasms, one top artist we all know shouldn’t be excluded in the list, yes, I’m talking about Girls’ Generation’s ace vocalist, Kim Taeyeon. Who haven’t fallen for her charms and sensational voice yet? Well, if you haven’t, you’re really missing out a lot of the good stuffs. Taeyeon definitely is the definition of good music.

Taeyeon probably had the busiest 2015, with the group’s back to back comebacks with ‘Party’ and ‘Lion Heart’, following her very successful solo debut with ‘I’, then ended the  year with TaeTiSeo’s Christmas Album promoting ‘Dear Santa’, Taeyeon’s voice was literally all around the place. But, us fans are all greedy, we wanted more, and yes, Taeyeon did not failed us. (Not to be misunderstood, ironically, I want our Taengoo to have enough rest too).

Taeyeon is back with a Digital Single ‘Rain’. Well, according to SM Entertainment, “‘Rain’ is a medium-tempo track with a jazzy and modern sound. With lyrics about longing for a past love, the song makes listeners enjoy the rainy day blues! Hope you enjoy her new single.” Together with the very beautiful ballad track ‘Rain’, another ballad track is included, called ‘Secret’.

Before I further talk about Taeyeon’s latest offering to her loving fans, watch the music video here:

As expected from SM Entertainment, their music video caliber is definitely with high and over the top standards, just by merely watching, you can really get into the emotions Taeyeon was trying to exude. At first, Taeyeon’s haircut was a no for me,but when I saw the teaser images, I was like “she looks like a fairy, a goddess”. About the song, can I just out it to a one word description?, “PERFECTION”. Taeyeon has done it again, no doubt she’s definitely a force to reckon with. ‘RAIN’ achieved a perfect all-kill, ‘SECRET’ charted as well. The music video had exceeded 1.2 million views in less than 21 hours.

I just have to point this out tho, I don’t know what with SM Entertainment’s marketing strategy these days, promoting Taeyeon and Super Junior’s Ryeowook at the same time as solo acts are a little bit risky. Considering the fact that its very obvious that Taeyeon has a higher chance to come out successful, Taeyeon is very overrated, which is not a bad thing, but still, she is very overrated, I’m worried about her overshadowing Ryeowook.

At this very moment, Taeyeon’s ‘Rain’ is currently no.1 in MelOn, Mnet, Bugs, Olleh Music, Soribada, Genie, Naver and Monkey3’s real time charts. Currently no.1 in Bugs daily chart. So far, GFRIEND is still leading over all according to instiz chart, but, only in a very little amount of percentage, that is why I believe Taeyeon would be no.1 in no time.

Ow! Here are some of Taeyeon’s jacket images for ‘Rain’.

Please show Taeyeon lots of love and support! Taeyeon fighting!

[20160112] KKMA 2015 BEST FEMALE GROUP

Standard

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.

2015111301906_2

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.

20150626_kfashionista_sistar2

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

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!
