Honey Thighs

September 30, 2017

Long time, no post, but a website came up with a topic that got me thinking…

In Kpop, who has “American thighs”, well, when I think of American thighs, I think of what is also called Honey Thighs, or, just plain nice legs.  So here are a few Kpop beauties that I think have what it takes.

End of an Era (Kpop)

June 13, 2016

This year has been pretty bad for some of my favorite groups.  The news that they were disbanding was hard to take.  Makes me think of another group that has been out of the spotlight for quite some time, I wouldn’t be that surprised if they were the next group to announce their disbandment.

So, the 2 groups that we know are no longer going to be around are:

KARA

KARA2

Please, SECRET, not this year?  Please release something.

Kpop girl group overload

May 11, 2016

Hey everyone, here we are again, I was watching another new video of a girl group, and I was thinking, Boy, there are a lot of groups out now, maybe too many?  I mean you’ve got your top tier groups, like Girls generation, mid-tier, like 9Muses, T-ara, APink, Mamamoo, and then the lower tier, like Bambino….wow, there are so many groups out there, I can barely keep up with them all.

To me, it seems like the Producer companies are trying to churn out more and more groups, pretty soon, it’s going to be lost, and we won’t know where to look as talent is so diluted, it will be worthless.  Just recently Kpop was turning towards high member count, cutesy groups.  Like, Lovelyz, Twice, Cosmic Girls, and now IOI.  Where does it end?

Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of very attractive ladies in these groups, and the music is pretty good, but I don’t know, something is lost.  Plus the fact that I jsut read an article that they want yet another group to come out.  Come on, enough is enough, do we want yet another group?

Seems just as fast as new groups spring up, older groups fade away, disband.  Kara, I’m looking at you.  I’m scared to see my favorite groups disappear, I’m looking at Secret here, they are getting successful solo careers and movies, I doubt I’ll see another CD from them.  But, I digress.  I’ll try to list out the current groups, at least on the high level, sure there are tons more, but that list would be too long.

Okay, am I forgetting anyone?  Dang, I thought it was difficult to pick a bias in a group, the groups just keep coming!

What do you think?  Too many?  Just enough?  Wow, Just trying to keep up with all the CDs is killing my wallet.

Spring Haul!

April 23, 2016

Well here it is Springtime, and so many new good songs and videos are coming out, I can’t keep my head straight on what to buy.  I must buy them all!  Okay, relax, breathe…

Okay, all better.  So, I made 2 purchases, one from my Japanese store-site YesAsia, and the second from a great EBay seller Grape Music.  I’ve bought a ton of stuff from that seller, and it’s always been good, I get free posters too.  Yeah, shipping is costly, but once it arrives, I forget all about that.  LOL.  So, without further ado, here are my purchases!

 

Perfume – Cosmic Explorer.  The new album from the Japanese Pop/Trance group, Perfume.  This one is exactly what you want if you are a fan.  Great songs, fun, but it leaves you wanting more.  And come on, A-chan, Nocchi, and Kashiyuka doing some mean Kung-fu moves in the video gives you chills.20160422_193543

 

APink – Brand New Days.  I think this is the fifth release for Japan, and it’s good!  You can’t go wrong with these girls, and BoMi.  That’s all I have to say, Bomi for the win.

 

20160422_193533

 

LaBoum – Fresh Adventure.  Their fourth single album, and in my opinion four out of four winners.  They are always cute and full of energy, this one is the same, if you like LaBoum, you will love them even more after this one.

Another group I consider to have a double bias, SoYeon and YuJeong.  I was watching an interview with them on a recent show, and they revealed that YuJeong was actually the oldest and the leader!  I was floored, I thought she was younger, but she’s actually quite a good person for the others to follow, and dang can she sing.

Another fun song, Journey to Atlantis, this group is now one of my super favorites.

20160422_19363520160422_193644

 

Jun Hyo Seong (Secret) – Colored.  This is her second mini-album.  She’s my bias from Secret (well actually I have a double-bias in Secret, but that was in an earlier post).  So, I had to buy this one, and it’s dang good.  Find Me is a great song, and she looks fantastic in the videos and lives…can’t get enough.  The rest of the CD is good, lot’s of good songs…hang on, I need to listen to it again.

20160422_193554

Hyosung

 

Hong Jin Young – Thumb’s Up.  Second mini-album.I admit, you either love Trot style music or you don’t.  Sure…but….Hong Jin Young is so adorable and sexy at the same time, what’s not to love?  Her pikachu impression will sell you, try not to smile, I dare you.  The song Thumb’s up is a positive song, lot of fun.

hong-jin-young-1

 

4 Ten (Poten) – Jack of all Trades.  This is their first mini album, and it does not disappoint!  If you like this group, and I do, it gathers their last few singles and puts it all in one place.  This group went through some line up changes, and style changes, and name changes, yikes…but thankfully my bias HyeJi is still there (although I think she’s much hotter with red hair).

20160422_193624

4ten_1422548759_af

 

WJSN (Cosmic Girls) – Would You Like?  Their debut mini-album.  Okay, I admit it, this was an impulse buy, but these girls are cute and energetic.  With girls from Korea and China, they pack a punch.  I look forward to their next release, can they keep up the hype?  Twelve members, a lot of different personalities, so because of that I choose the right to a Double-Bias, and they are Dayoung and YeoReum.

Computer Troubles and Lost Passwords

April 22, 2016

Wow, has it really been almost 4 months since I’ve posted?  Yikes.  Well, I can blame no one but myself.  Well, I guess I can also blame my old computer.  It had a good run though…3 years, and over that time, I can tell, it was getting slower and slower.  And then, Bzzzt.  nothing.  Couldn’t log in to anything, lines on the monitor.  I called 911

911 Operator: What’s the problem?

Me: Uhm, my computer, it’s not moving.

911 Operator: Have you tried CPR, I mean the CPU?

Me: Yes, I tried everything.

911 Operator: Try unplugging it and plugging it back in.

Me: Okay, I know computers, that was the first thing I did. Nothing.

911 Operator: Can you try it again?

Me: Fine, hang on…(20 minutes later) Nope nothing.

911 Operator: Sounds like it’s not going to work.

Me: Well, yeah, that’s why I called.

911 Operator: Sorry, there’s nothing we can do.  Buy a new one.

Me: But, my files are on there!  I need them.

911 Operator: You should have made back ups.

Me: Well, I did, but not the most recent stuff.

911 Operator: You should have made…

Me: Okay, I get it.  I’ll buy a new computer, but what about the old one?

911 Operator: Bury it.

Me: Excuse me?  Bury it?  Why?

911 Operator: Okay, just kidding, just toss it out.

Me: Fine.  Thanks.  I guess.

So, I have a new computer now, got everything back up and running (mostly) and I finally have all my passwords on the websites back.  Including this one.  And just in time too!  I just got a nice haul from Japan and Korea!

Expect a post tomorrow showing all the goodies!

Thanks all, it’s good to be back….
