Unpretty Rapstar Concluding Thoughts + Recap

ccooony: Season 1 of Unpretty Rapstar has finally come to an end after 8 episodes and it’s been a great season filled with relationships, tears, disses, and most importantly great original rap lyrics and awesome tracks. While I initially thought it was going to be like Mnet’s other rap show “Show Me the Money”, it was different in a good way.

Since there were only 8 rappers and they were competing for a track on a female rapper compilation album consisting of 6 total tracks, I feel like I was able to get to know each of the rappers better and had more opportunities to see what they had to showcase.

The winner of the final track, and essentially the winner of Unpretty Rapstar ended up being Cheetah and I think it was well deserved. Throughout the whole season, she was one of the top rappers to keep an eye out for and she dominated the stage with her well-written raps and her strong charisma.

Jessi, who came in 2nd place, definitely had a strong presence within the competition and she had such a strong power with her rap and voice. If Cheetah didn’t win, then I definitely think that it would have been Jessi. Cheetah and Jessi were both one of the top contenders throughout the whole competition and definitely proved themselves and their skills. Continue reading →

EXO Call Me Baby

ccooony: EXO just released Korean and Chinese versions of their music video for their newest title track “Call Me Baby.” I’m really excited and happy with it. The song “Call Me Baby” was really catchy to me the first time I heard it and I can’t help but groove along to it. The lyrics refer to a guy who shows his love for his girl and say sweet things to his one and only love. Of course the lyrics wouldn’t be complete without EXO’s trademark E – X – O thrown in there.

The music video was nice and I’m not disappointed at all with the dance moves. I thought that they all danced quite well and were all in sync. There are quite a few clothing changes for all of the members throughout the video. The music video includes fancy cars. Some of the scenes were recorded one-shot style, which I thought added to the quality of the video. Overall, I really like this track and I’m looking forward to seeing them promote it. I also look forward to see how well this song will do!

Dream Knight Episode 1 Recap

ccooony: As a quick premise for this web drama, it stars all of the seven members of idol group GOT7 and features the story of Joo In Hyung (played by Song Ha Yoon), a bullied high schooler with a positive attitude and a big fan of a popular boy group GOT (only three members consisting of Jr., BamBam, and Yugyeom) whose life gets flipped upside down when four mysterious boys enter her life (JB, Mark, Jackson, Youngjae).

Ep 1: We are first introduced to the main character girl Joo In Hyung dozing off in a classroom before being rudely awakened by some of the other girls in her school. She’s made fun of and it’s revealed that her mother had passed away and she doesn’t have her own home so she has made her own shelter at the rooftop at school.

One of the mean girls (played by Miss A’s Min) throws a coin at In Hyung telling her to get some food and makes fun of her poor status but rather than get upset about it, she merely takes it all in a positive light and says to throw a more valuable coin at her next time since it would actually take more than that coin to buy food.

anitaya: JJ Project is a duo with JB and Jr. who later became part of the group GOT7. “Bounce” is an upbeat dance song that you can groove to.

The main dance move for this song is shaking your body. There is a dance break at the end of the song with cool dance moves.

Super Junior D&E Can You Feel It

ccooony: Even though “Can You Feel It” isn’t their title track, I really enjoy this catchy track by Donghae & Eunhyuk! Because their chorus of “I got a feeling” in Korean sounds like “rabbit” in Korean, their point dance move in this song is bouncing up and down with the pointer fingers up like rabbit ears. You can’t help but groove along to the song when you hear the beats and chorus.

It’s really repetitive, but that is what makes it so easy to remember. If you watch one of their performances for this song, the two of them style up their hair so that it looks like they have cute rabbit ears, but their dance moves keep the song sounding groovy and fun! Overall, I think this is a really pleasing track to listen to! 🙂 Continue reading →
