SHINee World V – First USA Tour

As an International Shawol, it’s a dream to attend SHINee’s legendary “SHINee World Tour” selling out major cities and arenas such as Japan’s ‘Tokyo Dome’ selling 50,000+ tickets multiple days in a row.
    Thanks to the team at SubKulture Entertainment our dreams have finally come true after 8 years, The first ever North American branch of SHINee World Tour had begun. Starting in Canada, kicking off the successful tour in Toronto and Vancouver, Then bringing it down to the states, where i was lucky enough to not just go to one, but both US dates!
       Flying from Las Vegas, to Dallas early morning on the 24th, my journey began. After checking into my hotel, having a meal and heading down to the venue. The Dallas stop of the tour was held in the Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie TX. I had a P2 ticket, and I was first surprised at how well everything seemed to be organized as i entered the venue. I picked up my pre-ordered merch and quickly went down to my seat. With a good view of the stage and quickly meeting some new friends to enjoy it with. They kicked off the start with their song “Hitchhiking” which had the crowd going wild from the beginning. Playing well-known hits such as “Lucifer”, “Hello”, and “Ring Ding Dong”. They had our teal ocean in tears by throwing in their hit ballads Selene 6.23” “투명 우산 (don’t let me go)with JongHyun and Onew singing “잠꼬대 (please don’t go)”.They ended the concert with songs off their latest album “1 of 1” . As the boys told us stories about their tour so far, from Keys Gucci suit burning in Canada to what the members had for lunch. As the night came to an end we were sent off with memories to last a lifetime. That wasn’t the end for me, as I had a flight the next day to see them again at their LA show.  
  Last stop… the LA stop was held in the Shrine Auditorium. The same concert, same songs, same outfits, but a whole new day full of emotions and adventures. The concert pretty much stayed the same as Dallas, but with new jokes and stories told by the group. Key, MinHo and TaeMin all impressed us with their English skills, while JongHyun and Onew stuck to Korean with very little English. We still enjoyed every word they said, ending the concert we sang Happy Birthday to JongHyun as his birthday was the next week. As we said our goodbyes, the boys returned to Korea well rested with smiles and hopefully we impacted them as much as they did us.  
   Over all the SHINee World V was a dream come true with an experience and memories i’ll never forget, although people called me crazy flying to both concerts I would do it all over again.

Hyuna THE QUEEN’S BACK Tour in LA

When you think about March, one of the things that may come to your mind is March Madness which occurs in sports. However music, specifically K-Pop, also has had its share of madness this month with the amount of concert tours K-Pop fans are getting. One of those concert tours that began late last February and concluded last weekend was Hyuna’s first North American tour titled THE QUEEN’S BACK. It was so awesome that I had to take a week off before getting around to typing up this recollection. haha.

#Hyuna ‘s message to North American fans! Halfway through the tour #NYC tomorrow night. #HyunaTour

A post shared by KPOPME (@kpopme_ca) on Mar 2, 2017 at 11:57am PST

I will be reviewing the tour from the Los Angeles stop perspective since that is the one me and my good friend, Pat Fu, experienced. The Los Angeles leg of the tour was held at The Novo which is located in downtown LA party hot spot LA LIVE which is next to major attractions such as the Staples Center and Los Angeles Convention Center (where KCON LA is also held annually). Before the concert, I have never been inside The Novo before so I wondered how big and cool the venue would turn out to be. When I walked inside though I found it really cool as my first impressions were it reminded me of what an inside of a Las Vegas club might turn out to be like. There was a cool, ambient lounging area; but people were not looking to really chillax in it, because they were ready to see their queen Hyuna. Inside the lounging area was a bar. Since me and my friend are over 21, we wanted to get hyped even more and we bought drinks before heading into the seating/stage area. The staff at the bar and throughout the rest of THE NOVO were friendly and gave above average service in my opinion. We had someone escort us directly to our row, so we wouldn’t have trouble trying to find it in the dark. My favorite staff’s person though was the restroom attendant. They had someone actually hand out soap, like actually squeeze it into your hands, and pass you paper towels before even going for it yourself. That’s how you know it’s high class. hahaha. There was only one thing I caught up on that threw me off about the staff a little. I heard one of the ushers tell fans to calm down, because we were too excited. I thought by now, considering how many K-Pop concerts LA has had already, that they should know that most of us K-Pop fans have no chill and are so dedicated to our artists.
Anyways, onto the happenings of the concert. Someone actually told us before the show that there were rumors that there was going to be a 30 minute delay. To me though, the concert started good on time — or maybe it might have been because I was so excited to finally see Hyuna in person that I didn’t actually notice when me and my friend got into our seats. Before the show they had renowned dance cover group UCLA Koreos come out to open the show with a cover to Hyuna’s latest hit song 어때? (How’s This?). It was cool getting to see them perform as I missed them perform last year at KCON in the morning which I really wanted to see. Hyuna’s dancers then came out and started Roll Deep followed by the queen herself marching out with the unique swag she could only pull off herself and jumping into the first verse. The crowd went nuts as Hyuna was finally in person in front of our eyes!  Hahaha. After she performed Roll Deep she introduced herself and welcomed the Los Angeles crowd. She then gave fans a photo opportunity of her as she strolled around stage for a few minutes doing cool and cute poses giving fan service to us lucky crowd while lounge music played — which was kind of awkward but at the same time was just so right! She then thanked us for coming again and went back to performing. Throughout the show she performed more of her hit songs such as How’s This, RED, and Ice Cream. Man, this one male fan wanted her to perform Ice Cream, that he screamed out for her to perform Ice Cream and she was taken aback for a second in a funny, in a surprised way. It made us all crack up. She also promoted her latest album A’wesome more and performed songs off of that such as Do It! (for the first time on stage she said), Freaky (which me and Pat Fu were bumping to), and U&Me (my top favorite song of the night I think). She also brought back Change! A lot of fans felt nostalgic once she performed that hit from the good old days. Throughout the night she also had personal fun with her fans which is the reason why me and my friend like her a lot. She not only has her hot media image side, but she also has a down to earth, cool, friendly — real side of herself as well. She let fans ask her questions or even fulfilled some of their wishes such as take a selfie with them in the crowd. There were games played between Hyuna and her fans throughout the concert as well. One of the games was ‘How Compatible Are You With HyunA?’. Some of you might have seen it being played between idol group members on variety shows. The emcee would name two opposite things from a category, such as heels or sneakers, and at the same time after a countdown if you said the same thing as HyunA you would get a point. If you got 3 out of 5 rounds correct, you would win a prize. There were 3 people playing and they all won, so they got polaroid pictures of HyunA which HyunA kissed herself! So lucky! Another game was a dancing game where she called up 5 people to the stage and whoever was the best dancer and showed their love for HyunA the most through dance would win. The song they danced to was her latest song once again, 어때? How’s This?. I guess the prize was a back hug, because this girl got a back hug from HyunA and she was declared the winner. The show was then closing up and like other K-Pop concerts it felt so short. Me and my friend didn’t want HyunA to leave after finally seeing her in person. The show I would say ran for a good hour to an hour and thirty minutes. Like every other K-Pop concert, which makes me love these people I like to classify myself as — a K-Pop fan — people were chanting, “Encore, encore, encore…!”. There was only one song she didn’t perform that me and my friend were saying that she just HAD to perform or it wouldn’t feel right … Then after a few minutes dressed clad in her own tour merch was the queen HyunA coming out and performing the song that made her the queen that she is — BUBBLE POP! At that moment, at that closing moment of the show, me and my friend partied and sang together and knew, and appreciated, that we did it and came all the way out here to LA to show love for our homegirl, our queen, HyunA. …And that’s all I got to say. In the words of my good friend … “It was a good trip.” –in my own words now, a memorable trip that I will never forget (Thanks Pat Fu. ). ONTO KCON LA 2017!!! Where we will party even more – me and these other K-Pop fans out here! Thank you HyunA for being A’wesome. A-ing (Also her newly named fandom name)!

Korean Rock – Music History

Korean Rock, the genre that is not often talked about among Hallyu fans. Now you may have heard a few of these names or heard some of these songs, but lets get into other groups and how it all started.

shin_jung_hyun_webAccording to wikipedia, Korean Rock music started back in the 1950s with Shin Jung Hyun aka Korea’s “The Godfather of Rock”. So Shin Jung Hyun, set out to make music, and created a very distinct style of Rock music. To a lot of people, his style was very similar to the American Rock group, The Doors. In the 1970s, Shin was arrested on drug charges and the Government was censoring a lot of music, which put Rock music on a huge hold in Korea.
Listen to Beautiful Rivers and Mountains

the-brothers-of-sanulrimSo in the late 1970s a trio by Sanulrim made their debut saving Rock before the Pop wave came. Their songs were all over the place, some being children songs to some more 70s – 80s psychedelic rock. The group was actually all blood brothers, Kim Chang-wan, Kim Chang-hoon, and Kim Chang-ik. They started in University, and have released 13 albums. The group broke up in 2008 when the maknae of the group, Chang-ik died in an accident. The eldest brother, Chang-wan, went on into do other work, such as acting, and was in the popular drama, Coffee Price as Hong Gae-shik.
Listen to Will You Arrive in Autumn

1980s rolled around and Rock music got a bit heavy! With 3 major rock groups, Boohwal, Beakdoosan, and Sinawe.
Boohwal was 22005-boohwal-teuzsaid to have more Korean-style melodic rock ballads, than the other two groups. Throughout the years they have had many group member changes. They produced 13 albums and won Best Rock Performance in 2009.
Listen to The More I love400px-baekdoosan
Beakdoosan, may sound similar due to the Japanese fighter game, built by Namco, Tekken 2. Unfortunately that isn’t the person we are talking about. Beakdoosan came out with 9 albums. They are very similar in sound to American Glam Rock, not so much style. When listening to them, my mind went straight to Motley Crue and KISS.
Listen to The Moon on BeakDoo Mountain
hqdefaultSinawe is your Korean Glam Rock. I do find them a lot more similar to Beakdoosan than to Boohwal, but I also see why these were the 1980s big 3. Sinawe is considered to be the first heavy rock group in South Korea. Shin Daechul is actually Shin Jung Hyun’s son, and formed Sinawe in 1986. Just like Boohwal, they also had a LOT of members leave and go. The released 12 albums, and also was featured on several albums.
Listen to 희망가

In the early 1990s Korea took a change in leadership and Korean youths discovered more
and more music from around the world. This is the first time Punk music was fully introduced in Korea. Our first couple groups were, Crying Nut and No Brain. Around the time we had Sum 41 and Blink-182.
Listen to 넌 내게 반했어 by No Brain
crying-nut-2013-2Crying Nut has been around since 1995, but didn’t get famous till 1998 with their debut album Speed Up Losers. They are considered the Godfathers of Korean Punk music, A lot of Godfathers of music here! They also recorded 2002’s Fifa World Cup‘s Song for Team Korea. Which is actually, according to my mother, was my second World Cup. Korea and Japan hosted this World Cup, making it the first time in Asia, and Brazil one that year. Later Crying Nut was in a law suit against CNblue for the song Deadly Offside. Since then, as of 2014, they have 7 full length Albums!
Listen to Speed Up Losers

23326-lazybone-cmkqLate 1990s Ska Punk was really pushing forward. For those who don’t know, Ska is a type of Jamaican music, Similar in sound to Sublime. So Ska Punk is just a fusion of the two, and this produced Lazybone. Debuting in 1997. Due to their Ska sound they were very popular with TV commercials.
Listen to SanoRamen 

220px-%ec%88%98%ec%a0%95_%eb%8b%a8%ec%b2%b4_%ec%97%ac%eb%a6%84%ec%a0%95%ec%9e%a5_2Soon came along 2006, we have Dickpunks! Coming in Second place on Superstar k 4, in 2012, they hoped to gain more fans! Now Dickpunks is one of my favorites! They all participate in writing and creating their music. They have a total of 6 albums, and actually don’t have a guitarist. Hyun-Woo, the Pianist, thought the group would sound much better being a Piano based group.
Listen to We Young

Let’s get into our FNC Rock groups, FTisland, and CNblue. FTisland debuted back in 2007, and 2008 in Japan! They have 6 Korean albums and 7 Japanese albums, along with Solo albums. ft-island_1465625286_af_orgThey are one of the bigger known groups, due to countless promotion idea FNC as thrown lead vocalist Lee Hongki into. Hongki has been on many TV shows, and acted in many dramas. He often talks about his members, sex and drinking, almost like your typical rock star, but stays humble to his true being. Compared to their brother group, CNblue, FTisland considers themselves the Companies guinea pig group; and rather not be compared to CNblue. Hongki has stepped forward and has said the Company puts FTisland through things they would never put CNblue or AOA through, making them FNC’s experimental group. With Lee Hongki acting in dramas such as You’re Beautiful as Jeremy, and being a guest star on We Got Married, the group has gained more popularity.
Listen to Take Me Now
A couple years later, CNblue was formed! CNblue has a more Jazz Pop feel than FTisland. Lead vocalist Jung Yonghwa, has done many duets with other artists and also acting! Releasing only 2 Korean albums, they have released 7 Japanese albums! Their CEO said he would most likely leave the company in the hands of Jung Yonghwa instead of Lee Hongki starting a controversy among the groups.
Listen to You’re So Fine

Rock music in Korea has gone a long way! There are still so many groups to talk about and so much history behind each group! I hope you learned something new today, I know I did. I’ll make a list below of some other groups you got to give a listen! Tell us your favorite Korean Rock Band!

MinJoon
Co – Founder

[Music] MinJoon’s Monthly Top 10 – March 2016

March was a bit slow now wasn’t it? We had a few events but the k-pop world has been quite quiet this month. So, let’s jump into this!

Screenshot_106
10. GoyardLoopy
At first, I didn’t enjoy this song. Till I found myself saying “I’m ballin, I’m ballin so hard!” The mv is very simple, and I like that.

MV-Eric-Nam-Good-For-You
9. Good For YouEric Nam
Good for you Eric, finally having a comeback! Eric has such an amazing voice, but he’s so dorky! Haha, if you don’t follow him on snapchat, you should! This song is your typical Eric Nam, the vibe is very Eric Nam. Just use Eric Nam to describe things now! Do you think Eric Name would be good for you?

tumblr_o3qa45cWek1tnr0f1o4_1280
8. Hold My Hand – Lee Hi
This is a very fun song. I really love the album’s name Seoulite. This MV is cute, I love the 8-bit look of it all, though, I don’t like how her ‘friends/backup singers’ are made to look super dorky, but I think it kind of adds to the fact of “I am dorky, but you make me feel pretty” kinda vibe. This song is very different from BREATHE on the same album, completely different vibes. BREATHE gives me some serious chills though.

3-14_red_velvet
7. One Of These NightsRed Velvet
This MV is similar to Dumb Dumb, with each action leading to/into a different scene. It keeps the mv constantly moving, and is probably hell to edit. It’s nice to see Red Velvet step away from the comical cutsy look and into a more subtle innocent look. It also looked like they weren’t following there normal color coded member look either.

Hanhae_1458085332_af_org
6. I Used ToHanHae
This MV looks like tumblr.. and I like it. The song has a nice beat that keeps you moving, and the lyrics are flawless. I feel this song strongly, it reminds me of a lot haha, not sure if that is good or bad yet! The dancer in the MV is amazing, and very pretty, but I haven’t found any info on her yet!

Screenshot_129
5. R.EBIRTH Ravi
I’ma put the whole Mixtape here, instead of talking on one song. Before, I was kind of upset about the songs he was releasing, they weren’t all that great, but I still listened to support Ravi, but once the whole mixtape dropped, I was shocked. It was great! My favorite songs off this mixtape is R.EBIRTH, Lean on Me, and 끄덕끄덕. I sing 끄덕끄덕(nod nod) way way too often.

GOT7
4. FlyGot7
Now, I will admit, at first, this song was kinda eh to me. but after watching the video a second time, I realized it really was lacking on YoungJae and JR, which was really sad since YoungJae is my bias in the group; but I also noticed that this song is super catchy and I find myself singing it!

day6-lettinggo
3. Letting Go – Day6
Day6 has some of the most understanding break up songs ever. They really put a lot of time into their songs. It’s never just “I hate you now, we are over” they pretty much are saying “We have grown apart, and you are no longer happy, so I am letting you go, so someday, you can be happy.” So, breaking up with a member of Day6 seems to be fairly easy, in the terms of no ill feelings in the end.

MV-Block-B-A-Few-Years-Later
2. A Few Years Later Block B
This is quite different than most Block B songs, but I heard that they are going to have another song come out soon. I love this song, it has a lot of meaning. One of the reasons I love Block B is because they never fail to impress me. The MV isn’t crazy, and is pretty well explained as well.

jessi-excessive-love-mv
1. Excessive LoveJessi
This song was fire, no pun intended. Jessi has mad skills and I love LOVE her voice. She is a huge inspiration to me, and her song was perfectly done. I loved it. Her voice as just the right tone for the song and it’s amazing. 10 out of 10. The MV is simple and meaningful, which seem to be my favorite kind of MVs.

 

[Music] MinJoon’s Mothly Top 10 – February 2016

It is now the end of February, which means another Top 10!  A lot of comebacks this month, and they are all amazing!

cosmic-girls-mv-momomo-576x280
10. MoMoMo Cosmic Girls
Happy Debut! Cosmic Girls is a 12 member group, of 10 Koreans and 2 Chinese girls, from Starship, With Sistar and Monsta X. I just hope they don’t pull a B.A.P or EXO and decide to have a concept of all looking alike. I have a feeling that the Astronaut is MPD! Kwang Soo looks adorable as always! It is fun how they took the twist to make all the girls seem like they where aliens being visited by a stranger.

maxresdefault
9. Feel So GoodB.A.P
Holy Colorful sets! I FEEL SO GOOD! I kinda feel that the set paint spilled on Zelo and they just kinda went with it. “No Time to shower! We have to film!” This MV is very fun, and shows a soft teenage side of the boys. This song has grown on me, since I haven’t really listened to B.A.P before. (I’m sorry!) Now I’ve seen some people saying “This MV looks like BTS”, but there is absolutely nothing similar between the two. This song is a great party/road trip song.

Screen-Shot-2016-02-22-at-12.02.53-AM-675x414
8. OvercomeNU’EST
I love this Post-Apocalyptic setting in this MV, the vagabond style really ties it all together as well. I am very excited over the small steampunkesque accessories, such as the jewelry the boys are wearing, the gears on the pocket watches, goggles and the hints of gold in their outfits. Ren’s hair extensions look great as well. (I feel like I’m making a habit of commenting on hair)

Ladies-Code-Galaxy
7. Galaxy Ladies Code
After taking time away from their careers due to the tragedy that had taken the lives of two amazing members, Ladies Code comes back with Galaxy. The power of three seems to be the big concept here; triforces, triangles, three way chess. I’m not sure what the siscissors symbolizes, but this MV is great.

maxresdefault (1)
6. Hide & Seek Astro
Happy Debut also! As someone who watched Astro grow into the group they are now, I am very proud of how well this debut is. This song is super fun and bubbly without it being an overly gushy cute concept. The opening and closing sounds remind me a lot of DMMD, a Japanese BL computer game.

taeyeon-rain-mv-teaser
5. RainTaeyeon
I love this single album. Secret has become one of my favorite songs. I did like Taeyeon with her longer hair, but it’s understandable on why she cut it so short, but she still looks super adorable and childlike. The MV is simple, not too much going on, just you typical, it’s a rainy day and not much to do, and that Tae is reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! The way the MV switches between the room scenes and the black and white solo stage shots are amazing. Soon the MV takes an unexpected turn and the objects in the room turn to water and soon the room is flooded, it almost reminds me of the scene in Hayao Miyazaki film Spirited Away, when the Water spirit comes and the bath house becomes flooded with random things and gold.

1456544601-55
4. 넌is뭔들 (You’re The Best)MAMAMOO
Hey! Mr. Ambiguous, Piano Man! MAMAMOO pulls my heart strings with their amazing soul voices! The MV gives a very flirty girlfriend vibe, which is adorable and fits the song amazingly. I love that MAMAMOO adds a lot of humor and old fashions into their MVs and songs, I also love that they hint to their other songs such as Mr. Ambiguous and Piano Man. MAMAMOO’s dances are defiantly dances you would want to learn.

taemin-drip-drop
3. Drip DropTaemin
It was really hard to pick between Drip Drop and Press Your Number, since both are amazing; but I didn’t want the list to be the same couple artists, so I picked one. This song gets stuck in my head like no other. The dance is amazing, Ian Eastwood did an amazing job at the dance for this song. I love the color correction of the sky to make the scenery really pop. It also so filmed pretty close to home, so I am a little bias on the location. I recommend this album a thousand times over, the highlight medley had me sold. The album has more ballads than the last one, one of my favorite songs off the Album is Solider.

jung joon young
2. SympathyJung JoonYoung ft. Suh YoungEun
This MV is quite sad. The song is very moving. The orchestra and the vocals tie in so well. The song is about losing love in a way you never expected, how there is no way to change how it ended. The female part of the song blames herself for everything getting hard and falling apart, while the male part starts off saying “At some point I stopped missing you”. In all it’s a very emotional song, and deserves a lot of love.

winner4
1. Sentimental Winner
Now, I do realize I made Winner first on two months, but I do believe this Comeback is the best thing that has happened to Winner. With the comeback songs of SentimentalBaby Baby, and I’m Young. Each of these songs is beautiful and has a strong meaning. I’m Young had me in tears, the MV hit hard and crushed me. TaeHyun said that he had wrote that song when he was in love, so his heart is really in that song. YG had as all pretty pumped up for Sentimental and Baby Baby with all the covers from other Artists. I feel like Sentimental is a song we can all relate to. I enjoy how the MV flows from one room to the next, and the colors are amazing. Most of all, who wouldn’t love Mino’s ‘trucker’ look! I look forward to the next part of EXIT.
