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?

The wait is over finally!After months and months of wait BoA is finally set to comeback with her sizzling seventh album “Only One” which will be released online on July 22nd(countdown starts!) and offline release is scheduled on 25th.Overseas fans like me look out for the album early in iTunes,Melon and Genie!! For the first time BoA has composed the title track herself! So there are lot of expectations from the fan front. Will the song embrace the expectations? Will it be sophisticated and soft? Will it “Bring It On”? We will have to wait and see. Personally I think BoA has what it takes!
