No silly, I'm saying I've dealt with Korean boys who try to look pretty to realise the type of guy you need to be in order to be successful in Korea. Am I? Hell no..and even if I was, I'd slap JYP right in his tap dancing face of his.


Idk what JYP is XD

But naw,I got what you were saying.

What you've said is pretty funny. LOL. But seriously, on your previous comment, it is true. If you're a pretty good looking guy in Korea you're fitted to be in a boy group. So does the girls. Music quality of Korea is almost breaking down, well.. at least for now. Koreans are still in this trend and they couldn't get out of it since fan girls and fan boys are there. (Korea has the most disturbing fan girls, IMHO.)

Whereas in Japan (well the comparison never ran out) yes they have boy and girl groups but rock bands are there, soloists are there.. They were never been shadowed by groups. Unlike in Korea where other genres almost died because groups have shadowed them. The Korean music industry needs to revive it.

SHINee to make Japanese debut in March



Today South Korean boy band ?SHINee? held their first concert in Japan at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium in Tokyo and have announced that they are going to make their official Japanese debut under ?EMI Music Japan? in March 2011.

In 2008 they were awarded Rookie of the Year in South Korea. Since then their popularity has kept on growing and now they are going to follow their fellow idol groups to Japan to expand their fandom even further.

Even before their debut they are already a big number in Japan. Within one month more than 100,000 people applied for a ticket for their performance today. In the end, 24,000 lucky people were able to see the five members of SHINee today. They performed two shows, which adds up to about 5 hours and 60 songs. There is no doubt that this must have pleased their Japanese fans.

Member Jonghyun still wasn?t able to fully perform with the others due to an injury on his left foot. ?I?m sad that I can?t perform as much as I want, but at least I?m able to stay on stage with the others,? he said in tears.

I like 2NE1 and BIGBANG. They give off this cool vibe that i don't see in other K-pop groups. For solo acts i like BoA, but I listen mostly to her J-pop releases.

This is what I've learned since I jumped into the K-pop bandwagon:

1. There's a new group every five minutes (no limitations)
2. Every member of a group has to have a solo mini-album and then surprise us with an unfinished track to release as a single
3. Their choreography is so damn good and catchy (rest of world should take notes)
4. They stick to the concept of the songs/fashion/etc.
5. They make high expensive music videos and don't give a damn (there are some bits of controversy, but nothing major)
6. They're in-your-face and kicking ass!!!

[Interview] SHINee-EMI Japan PD Miyake


Akira Miyake


SM boy band SHINee

Korean Idol Groups Appeal with High Quality Music?

SHINee, an idol group to make an official debut in Japan in March, have chosen as their partner EMI Japan, a company known for producing Utada Hikaru called national singer of Japan. Miyake Akira, who discovered and promoted Utada, will also be the producer for SHINee. After attending SHINee?s solo concert, he said he?d like to promote SHINee as an all-Asian pop group.
- Why SHINee?
?I met them in Korea twice. They were fresh. I didn?t hesitate to make my decision to work with them. They are versatile, they can do diferent genres like ballad and dance, and each member has a different musical style. There are many groups with manly and strong images, but SHINee will appeal to the protective instinct of fans with their sensitive and cute images.?
- The main target?
?Beyond the existing fanbase of Korean Wave, women of 30~50s, young women of 10~20s are showing explosive responses to them. SHINee is a rare idol group with sustainable contents such as good singing ability, purity, and creativity. It is unusual to make a successful concert even before an official debut and to fill the two and half hour concert only with performances. ?
- What is the strength of Korean idols?
?Korean idols appeal with their music, not just with constructed talents. Their musical ability and quality is much better than that of Japanese idols, and Korea has a more advanced training system. They come into the market in a perfectly prepared state.?
- Your future plan?
Only the debut date has been confirmed. What is certain is that SHINee can?t be defined just as K-pop or J-pop, but will be Asian Pop, that is, A-pop. They will make a success in the Asian pop market after taking in new things from Japan after their debut.

Very well said dude!! i agree, specially about their videos and choreography (they can really dance!). They really go out of their way to make one. Very creative and trendy. The quality of music for each song is also great.

I'm not really a fan, i tend to watch their videos because of the beautiful ladies, (love the butt dance by Kara and RunDevilRun by snsd ) (sorry about that) and here in the Philippines, these groups really skyrocketed when it comes to popularity.

However, 2NE1 rubs me off differently, love their style, they have some Punk elements in them that, for me, sets them apart from the other group.
