I’m getting really bored with Kpop as a whole right now.
But then again, I’ve said this before and yet here I still am. But in all honesty, nothing is grasping my attention and no amount of ritalin can help me. And can you blame me? Look what’s out there right now.
The closest thing to “interesting” in Kpop right now is Epik High’s newest album. I would have said Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry” promotions, but that got really old, really quickly. The BoA hype died down for me. I was never even interested in “Gee.” My GOD! What’s left for me?
After the explosive “Crazy” single of 2008, Son Dambi is back and has officially bored-ed me out with “On A Saturday Night.” Seriously, PLEASE, someone save Kpop from this annoying retro phase. It’s old. But Dambi is still one hot mama!
Let’s see, who else? Oh yeah, GD’s supposed to come solo this month. That oughtta be good, but there’s no news about that yet. 2NE1, the latest thing to come out of YG, is debuting around May and my expectations are high.
I heard Kara is supposed to come out with a new album later in the year, too! I’m pretty excited for that, but it seems like such a long time from now. *yawn* SS501 is planning to move on to the states. Took DSP long enough to join the trend. Can’t wait to see how that works out.
What about my beloved JYPE? Well, after announcing a divorce from his wifey of 16 (?) years, JYP’s still kicking it. It’s obviously not bugging him for the most part, so we shouldn’t care either. 2PM’s got a new album/mini album coming up April-ish towards May, right? I’m never sure with them anymore. 2AM is currently promoting their new song “Confession of a Friend” and they’re getting some high marks for their impressive live performances! Just recently, the One Day crew was seen crashing the Wonder Girls’ concert at their final stop in Seoul.
And speaking of the Wonder Girls, what will their Wonderful fans have to look forward to for the rest of 09? Well, by the looks of things…nothing. US fans can expect an English version of last year’s hit “Nobody” on May 5. While everyone else seems to be excited for this, I for one am not. Really. Nobody is sooooo last year and I want something fresh. That single marked the end of the retro concept for JYP and the girls and I’m getting mad anxious to see how they’ll follow it up.
But we’re going to have to wait to see how the girls will dominate 09. By the looks of things, JYP plans on keeping the girls in the states for quite some time. I’m willing to bet, way past the release of English Nobody. With all these supposed companies reaching out for a piece of the girls, I’m sure JYP would more than gladly take what he can get in the states. *sigh* What a drag. GO BACK TO KOREA YOU DANG ARTISTS!!!
