I haven’t paid too much attention to Jpop recently. But this is essentially a cross between Jpop and Kpop so I decided to post it.
It’s the PV for One Day, a track by 2AM and 2PM.
I’m sure their fans would have known of this already. I am not much of a 2PM fan (except for Nichkhun). I liked them before, when Jay Park was there, but for me after Again and Again and I Hate You, I really didn’t quite get their songs. But I still like Nichkhun! It’s a different story for 2AM. I liked them since I heard What To Do and Confession of a Friend and I’ve never stopped liking them!
This song is a Japanese single. I think this song is actually a good one for the Japanese market. It’s the kind of song most Japanese boy band releases. Do I like it? Hmm.. it’s ok I think, but not a favorite of mine, but pleasant to the ear. I don’t hate it, just not very catchy for me. (I think this is the big difference for me with Jpop and Kpop)
The video is quite simple, just them dressed in suits and doing the usual dance. Ok Taecyeon! I don’t know what’s with me but I like the way you look in this video! Kya.. and not to mention Jinwoon (sorry I can’t helped but be biased). And yay! we got to see 2AM dance again. Speaking of dancing, their moves remind me of Arashi and their dance steps from the not so old days. If I hadn’t know better, I would think they were a Japanese boy band instead of a Korean one. Suddenly I miss my Arashi crazy days! Matsumoto Jun, Sakurai Sho! (at this point I am surpressing my Arashi fandom because this post is about 2AM and 2PM).
Final Verdict:I think the song is for the Japanese market, not the usual 2AM/2PM song, but good for Jpop. And the dancing reminds me of my Japanese boyband fandom! Oh how I miss Arashi!
I was waiting for Jay Park to post his new video on his YT site, but apparently his site had been deleted. So luckily i am subscribed to sidushq and they have uploaded his new video! yipee!!
This is the video of Jay Park‘s Abandoned.
The song sounds like an American rnb song but the lyrics are in Korean. It sounds good though. Though, the video looks very common (sorry ^_^) but we get to see him dance again! I think at the moment it’s just good that Jay Park has come back to the Korean Music Scene.
I wonder what will happen if 2PM and Jay Park meet in the variety shows. I can only wonder.
The drama that I am really crazy right now is Dream High.
However, I am not a fan of the Samdook + Hyemi + Jingook love triangle. I would prefer the Milky Couple!! Jason (played by 2PM’s Wooyoung) and Pilsuk (played by IU) really look good together..
Long Time No See.. Ep 9
Profile Pictures!!! Who’s phone is this??.. Ep 12
Beware of Samdong.. Ep 13
Pilsuk Sings To Jason.. EP 15
Kiss Scene… Ep 15
I found some clips on yt that I wanted to share.. these are must-see scenes, so you better watch them before yt takes them down!! kk
This is drama is one that I would recommend to someone who is looking for a light drama to see. It’s a mixture of the elements of Korean drama with a hint of Glee. The characters are adorable and the songs are really nice. When you watch it, you also develop an appreciation for the old Korean songs as well as how they train an idol. It let’s us in the world of the idol groups and understand them better.
I would be really sad when this drama ends! part 2 anyone?

If there is SM Town… and then there’s YG Family… now we are introduced to JYP Nation.
This is how the artists under JYP Entertainment call their group. And they have recently released their MV “This Christmas“.
Yes, Christmas is in the air!!! Oh well.. it should be since it’s December! But I love the coziness of this video… And I think its good because they captured the true meaning of what Christmas is.. being together with the ones you love.. be it romantic or not. Oh and I love the way they had Nichkhun do the last part of the song! very very good!
Christmas is actually my favorite time of the year! I’m so excited for Christmas!! Thank you JYP Nation for making me start to feel the Christmas season… so I think I’d better start doing my Christmas list!
Well now their fans (like me :)) need not wait any longer as they have released the full English (Acoustic) version of Rainy Days!!
What do I think about it??
NICE!!! It has that certain One Way sound that I really love and like what I’ve been saying, their sound is refreshing. Power vocals by Chance and Peter. And if I am not mistaken, Junsu of 2PM is also featured in the video. Girls be patient as you can see him somewhere around the 4:10 mark. I like Young Sky’s rap lyrics — actually I like the words of the whole song. And I am not saying this from a biased fan’s point of view. I think that’s one of the things that I really like about One Way is because they write their own music and the words in their songs really make sense and are really GOOD!!
What they released is just the English version. They still have the Korean track coming up. And according to the announcement the boys made, Junsu is taking part in the song! I can hear 2PM fans rejoicing. kk I must say though that Junsu can really sing, so I guess him lending his voice to this track would make it uber good!! Their album will officially be released sometime in December. Can’t wait for the Korean version ^__^
It’s kind of sad that he has officially left 2PM but 2PM will continue to be a hot hot boy group in Korea while Jaebum or Jay Park as he is called in the USA is going to have his own projects in the USA… maybe!
When I saw the video I kind of wanted the 7 guys to reunite and sing Again and Again.. though 2PM manages their activities fine.. it’s still not the same without Jaebum… especially because he has a distinct voice…
But oh well, good luck to him in America..
And as for 2PM Taecyeon and Nickhun are still there so it’s ok! kk ^^
