2013 is officially perfect already. The rest of the year can just have a seat.
Also: This is the first time I’ve really liked Yoona…ever. AlsoAlso: Hyoyeon finally got a nosejob, bless her heart. AlsoAlsoAlso: Sunny is forever the cutest thing on the Internet. She better work that cotton-candy-colored mushroom hair.
But, can K-pop girl groups make actual girl group music? What is the point of 5 girls if you’re all singing in unison through a vocal processor? I’ma need some harmonies before I can fully co-sign their second attempt at making it in America.
Sometimes, you accidentally listen to a lot of k-pop. See, what had happened was, I’ve been getting stuff I missed since that concert in California last week and I’ve decided three things:
2NE1 really is one of the best pop groups on the planet. That is just so much sass in one place I can’t even take it.
SISTAR has a lot of weak songs, but I feel like they have a shot at actually becoming a big deal since A) Three of them are pretty good singers B) Bora is ridiculously pretty and C) Hyolyn can saaaaannnnng.
Girls’ Generation needs more subgroups like TaeTiSeo. They are really giving me actual girl group vocals and not just processed pop fluff. I hope the next breakout has Hyoyeon in it with some kind of hip-hop flavor.
And so is the Wanted. And Big Time Rush. And every other boyband that’s not from South Korea (or from 1998-2005).
Sorry, that’s just how it is.
WHERE IS THE DANCING?! Why am I watching your video if there’s no dancing? I mean, when there’s one dude, at least there’s room for some back-up dancers, but when we gotta give equal time to all four or five of you monkey-faced nobodies, there’s no room for backup dancers.
That should be your job anyway. The point of a singing group is to either A) Have enough people to sound amazing without backup singers or B) Have enough people to dance while the lead singer sings. If you aren’t doing either, I don’t have time for you. Let’s compare some videos. I dare you to tell me K-pop isn’t better. Double dare you.
Let’s look at the last videos by some of the biggest boybands on both sides of the planet.
