BTS is coming to K-CON NY!!!!

  
So I’m excited. Like I have been praying that KCON would reveal both a NY and LA artist and not just LA. I’m so stoked to see them come to NY as I do live on the east coast and it’s easier for me to afford a plane ticket. I’m a little sad that 4Minute wasn’t announce as one of the clues looked like a staff member was doing the dance for the chorus to Hate but OMG my wish came true so I’ll take it because I’m love with the group.

Forever Young with BTS

So I’m checking my Facebook news feed and I see this posted. OMG, I totally didn’t even realize BTS was releasing something today. I’m already broke from splurging on the concert DVD set that sold out so quickly. When I saw part of the MV, I was watching it at work with no sound with the English translations at the bottom so I was guessing in my mind what the song actually sounds like. OMG, I was shocked to know I was getting the beginning right in my head. I’m totally in love with this song! BTS always have such inspirational lyrics and I think that’s why I totally feel in love with them so quickly. I’m totally hoping BTS comes to K-CON this year and hopefully it’s on the east coast!!!!

VIXX is Dynamite!

So VIXX has made their comeback this year with a new hit entitled Dynamite. I saw the teaser the other day and was not really convince that I would like this song but I’m glad it proved me wrong. I totally loved the song and the concept of it. Of course, we can’t go without hearing RAVI speaking at the beginning of a song. *I thought it was too quite in the beginning for a while.

 

*Referring to Beautiful Liar and Chained Up – Ravi doesn’t speak a line in English at the beginning of the song.

Bye Bye 4-D Prince Hyunseung….

Jang-Hyun-Seung-3

So CUBE announced that  Hyunseung has part ways with BEAST due to conflicts. Seriously I was only checking my phone because I realize during the middle of a therapy session that it wasn’t turned off only to see “Breaking: Jang Hyunseung Officially Leaves Beast.” Like I wasn’t ready for that in between sessions with clients. I’m glad he hasn’t officially left CUBE but it sucks when your bias leaves the group. I should also kind of suspected this to happen with the fans being harsh on him not attending a fan meeting and saw him meet with a girl which by the fan was none of their business. In my opinion we have NO idea what was going on that day with Hyunseung and why he was meeting that girl. For all we know, it could have been an old friend or cousin who he needed to really talk to due to worries he can’t unload with his group members. I wish fans can be more considerate that their idols are just as human as they are and they have their days. The paragraph below is translated by Soompi.

Hello, this is Cube Entertainment.

We give our thanks to the fans who love BEAST, and we have something to inform you about.

As of today, Jang Hyunseung has withdrawn from BEAST, and the group has been reorganized to consist of five members: Yoon Doojoon, Lee Gikwang, Yang Yoseob, Yong Junhyung, and Son Dongwoon. Jang Hyunseung desires to focus on making his own music as a solo artist instead of as a member of BEAST in the future.

Jang Hyunseung and the five members have been talking and consulting continually with the company about making a change to team activities due to differences in personality that began with different opinions on music. After long deliberation between all the members, it was agreed that the group would part company with Jang Hyunseung and the team would be reorganized.

BEAST has been working hard for the past seven years without rest for the fans and their shared goal of reaching the top. Because of this, this decision was not easy for the members, company, or anyone.

BEAST, which has now changed to a five-member group, plans to get ready to release a new album in 2016 and be active both domestically and overseas. Please continue to support and show interest in both BEAST and Jang Hyunseung, who will be doing their best in their own positions.

Thank you

What are you thoughts on Hyunseung leaving BEAST?

NCT U – 7th Sense

So SM has debuted a new boy group, well you got a sample of some of the members. The new boy group kind of reminds me Berryz Koubou original idea as to rotate the members (it was including the members of °C-ute). In this video we see five of the members and I would be satisfy with just this five because to be honest, I would have a hard time following if the members change constantly like AKB48 does. Seriously it’s hard to really fall in love with a group and watch them group if members rotate out to often that you find yourself saying, “Who is this? Was they in the group before?”

Now onto the song, I love love love the song. I didn’t watch any the reactions as I know some of them SM Stan so hard that they may be overdoing how “good” a group is if it comes from a major company. When I was watching the music video I was happy to see them out of the box but realize it only partially out of the box as they was inside something else like a clear box or trap in between walls shape like a mini box. I guess an SM video isn’t SM without a box.

°C-ute Is Blowing Your Way With Summer Wind

Wow it’s been a while since I posted anything related to Hello! Project. °C-ute has released others songs before this but this release has catches my attention. These girls are now adults and I’m glad Tsunko has been them more mature songs with still idol ring to it since they are in an idol company.

Babymetal Makes USA TV Debut Appearance on The Late Show

So Babymetal has made their US television debut on the late show performing Gimme Chocolate. The performance air last night on the show to promote their new album release Metal Resistance which funny this, they didn’t perform any song from their new album. One dislike I have about the performance which kind of happen when I saw them live at Rock on the Range is whoever is in charge of the volume on the girls’ mic needs to be fire. The girls audio was very low compare the awesome band going on in the background.  I’m hoping when I see them live next month that this won’t be an issue. Check out the performance above!

Bye Bye Minzy

  
So it’s official, 2NE1’s youngest member Minzy is leaving 2NE1. According to the press release, YG announced that Minzy decided to not renew her contract with YG. It’s a sad moment for Blackjack fans around the world to see a member depart from the group. Seeing this happen is not surprising considering 2NE1 was on hiatus for 2 years after the Park Bom scandal. I was expecting to hear possible rumors of disbandment when the contract renewal pop back up in the news but instead only one member leaves the group while the remaining trio will continue to promote this summer.

Babymetal – The One Live Performance Music Video

So Babymetal release another music video entitled The One. When I clicked on it, I thought we was getting the preview of the English version since they had had English lyrics in the description box but it was a mixture of Japanese and English. Just from the footage shown when they first perform the song makes me  jealous of how awesome that stage was. Seriously, Babymetal concerts in Japan seems so awesome when I watch the dvd release but sadly they don’t have huge stages in other countries to put on such perfomances but seeing this video still makes me pump and ready for their US tour!
