Guru’s Koreans “Top 10 UNDER 21”

WIth Oppa’s ganganam style stirring up the world music chart, the kpop is further entering the world music scene via billboard list. The Nations little sister “IU” has made the list of “21 under 21” which lists the authentic underage music hotties under 21! She was ranked 15 and the only kpop artist to make the list. But I think there are other underage “music” hotties totally worth the list. So this is my personal billboard “10 under 21” hotties .

Rank#1 (IU)

There was a time not so long ago when I thought IU was becoming more and more noticeable these days- glad Billboard noticed it too. She is rank #1 in my list! Go IU!

Hotness factor: Innocent look

Rank#2 Miss A -Suzy

Has eyes that speak

Hotness factor: Eyes

Rank #3 f(x) Sulli

Rank#4 Jong Up-BAP

The awkward in the group! really?

Hotness factor: Dreamy eyes

Rank #5 Young Jae

Promise! I am not favouring BAP!

Hotness factor: His chubby cheeks!

Rank# 6 Kim Hyun A

The wonder girl!

Hotness factor-LIps

Rank #7 Park Ji Yeon-

Let us give the scandal baby a break and accept her. She is a regulation hottie right?

Hotness factor: Her smile

Rank #8 f(x) Luna

Rank #9 Minzy-2NE1

She grooves and shakes and she is the teenage hottie of the k-town!

Hotness factor: Definitely her dance!

Rank #10 Chen -EXO M

Ranking pending- Because they are ridiculously underage!!

Dani-T-ara

Agreed she has innocent naive looks. But look at her-she is barely a teenager and a kpop artist? Please atleast let her grow up a little bit.

Confessions of a kpop fan

Before travelling down to the the kpop town I used to be a die-hard addict of old school rock music.  The western music of nowadays is getting exceedingly meaningless and does attach to my soul and emotions.I am nearly maxed out of all the abusive(sometimes meaningless) R-rated rap lyrics.I am not an antifan of rap or anything;in fact I am a fan of the genre but in the current rap scenario most of the songs are just plain swearing!! It is fun for a while to listen to the f- words. But after a while it has become brain tiring and left me completely shallow. I cannot sing these songs in public nor can I understand most of it.

Like anything under the sun there are deviations from this current stereotype. What about “Millionaire” by Travie? Thanks to the lyrics penned by Bruno Mars the lyrics are truly enjoyable-there are swearing here and there still the song is meaningful. I wish all songs that comes make sense like this one! For some time now I am totally stuck on classic seventies western music.
Omg! Forgive me rambling! Coming to point -what gets me hooked up on kpop?
I would say the first thing is the feel and emotions conveyed through the song. Nearly all the kpop artists have mastered the art of seducing our emotions-I think its their innate talent. They talk to you even without needing a language.
When I hear a Korean song – I wouldn’t understand the lyrics but I would still get the feel of the song. Without even trying the chorus and beat gets stuck in my mind! Then I browse and find the English lyrics of the song which pulls me even closer to the song.


Another diamond of kpop is the mv! From flawless choreography to interesting costume concept kpop tries to deliver the best.
The key aspect which makes the kpop stand out is the fan services. I haven’t seen any western artists connect to the fans as much as the Korean artists do. The variety shows the stars so not only brings them fame but also ties up better relationship with the fans.
The kpop artists have pained and strained for years to debut. They have not sprouted just like a mushroom in rain rather have been nourished by years of training.

After the idols do become popular celebrities their schedule gets packed up and they seldom get time for their personal stuffs. They sacrifice nearly every aspect of normal life.these kind of sacrifices and dedication wins the sentiments of the fans.
The next big thing of kpop is the social networking. Most of the idols are active in social networking sites like Twitter, weibo etc and keeps the fans updated. This plus all the fan clubs, fanbases and blogs like ours driving the hallyu wave ,it is hitting the world faster than the tsunami! Dont you agree?

Crash closer to BAP

When I say Closer, I mean “Closer”. This MV is basically a video collage of all the nostalgic moments of BAP. Do you remember- those “feel good” picnic scenes of dramas and movies? Behind the screen scenes? Funny moments in variety shows? Loved those right? Imagine a docu type video with all those “heart warming” moments in one MV and thats Crash! I think this MV is one special fanservice by the BAP- getting their fans a “peep look” into the “sweet seconds” of their life.

This song is kind of surprise from the creators of power-kick songs like warrior and power, but I am not complaining. Looks like they are taking a break  from their usual fire! I am positive that this song is a one time thing for the band, so enjoy the peppiness for now.

Song and MV:

The zoo part of the MV is shot in Malaysia-all the Malaysian fans would be proud! The other are tit bits from their BTS. Unfortunately the MV has absolutely no relation to song lyrics. But the instrument beats,pop vibe and the song mood goes perfectly with the MV. There was a whistle sound which is repeated throughout the song-cute and creative. At first I even thought that whistle sound was by the zoo guard-LOL!

Some of personal favorite cute moments of the MV

Staring at the monkey!

Chasing the duck!

 

 

Fake Biceps!

Bromance 😉

What are your favorite moments?

Song English Translation:

I can’t believe it, it’s really perfect
I am breathless, it’s not fair
Your eyes, your lips, you’re everything really left me shook up

Like a fool, I lost myself to her unforgettable first impression

It’s like my heart is broken (malfunctioning)
My love is on fire
My heart beats thump thump (and beats)
Please save me (You’re my girl)

Help me help me help me
My breath quickens when I see you
Help me help me help me
When I see you my eyes get dazzled
My heart thumps thumps and looks for you
Where you are? I’m waiting for you

Rap:
You you you – meeting you is really a crash
I want to get to know you better
I turned into Conan, you won’t know my feeling
I keep thinking about you, girl, you’ve made me forget my first love
Even if you keep telling me to go
I’m still going to tell you you’re my everything
Cause I love you girl

Like a fool I lost myself to her unforgettable first impression

It’s like my heart is broken (malfunctioning)
My love is on fire
My heart beats thump thump (and beats)
Please save me (You’re my girl)

Help me help me help me
My breath quickens when I see you
Help me help me help me
When I see you my eyes get dazzled
My heart thumps thumps and looks for you
Wehere you are? I’m waiting for you

Na na na na na na na na (Hey)
Na na na na na na na na (Hey)
Na na na na na ~ na na na na na
Na na na na na ~ na na na na na

I almost catch you and yet you go further away
Please give me a chance
If you can hear my heart – please answer me
To me

It’s like my heart is broken (malfunctioning)
My love is on fire
My heart beats thump thump (and beats)
Please save me (You’re my girl)

Help me help me help me
My breath quickens when I see you
Help me help me help me
When I see you my eyes get dazzled
My heart thumps thumps and looks for you
Wehere you are? I’m waiting for you                                          Credits: TEMPSUBBER2012 – YouTube

 

I came across a handful of criticism from people who called the MV “cheap”, “disappointment”,”could have done better” and the song as “just another kpop”. But come on this song is a gift “for the fans”- when it comes to gift don’t you think hand made unique gifts are better than colorfully wrapped flashy gifts? Would you call those hand made stuffs cheap? Also the song is really enjoyable and pleasant to hear; Couple of times after I heard the song, it was all inside my head- Real Catchy! Crash- A TREAT FOR THE FANS!!!

Idols’ Colour Explosion – Dye and Try different colours!

Dyeing ones’ hair in all possible colours is quite a common practise among K idols! When I see some of the colours these guys use am reminded of all the cartoons and animes that I watched ages ago..One thing is clear these guys pull off such weird fashion with style and not many of us will have to courage to be caught with these bright hair!
Some Idols appear many times in this list simply because they are the ultimate fashion experts who have tried all possible colours! KUDOS TO ALL!!!
It’s raining colours people!
