This Post is going to be very very long because I have so much news and music to cover it is absolutly ridiculous but I will try my best to have it all make sense and not be one huge giant spazz that is all of the place.
I’ll start with the Kara scandal that is going on so originally 4 out of the 5 girls had decided to leave Gyuri being the one who initally didn’t leave and aparently had no idea that her members were even thinking of leaving DSP at all. (which I personally think is BS and she was just told to say that she knew nothing of it by her company) The reason for the 4 (now 3 as Hara returned to DSP not long after she returned from Thailand….which is also a curious case as some netizens think the only reason why both Hara and Gyrui didn’t decide to leave with the other three being that DSP might have something on both the girls…what exactly it might be we don’t know as it is just a rumor) But what is certain is the reason why the now 3 girls of Kara are leaving is due to overworking and being taken advantage of by their company. They said that their company was giving them so many schedules many of which they did not want to do and were paid too little for all the work they have put in. A lot of netizens are screaming foul because isn’t that what idol life is? So a lot of people are saying there is probably a lot more to it then what Kara or DSP has said. Another kicker is that DSP media quickly went and aquired a copyright to the KARA name so the three members who have left KARA cannot use the Kara name wherever they plan to go in the future. Personally I am smelling a DBSK all over again and I’m not too happy about it and I’m not even a Kamilla. I’m not all too sure what exactly to feel or think about this whole issue because it is still too early and too much of a gray area. I will be keeping up on this to further grasp exactly the whole deal and will most likely talk more about it in my next post if there is any updates to the story.

Seungri’s Solo Mini Album VVIP dropped yesterday and WOAH! was I impressed. The songs are great! I just watched his two MV’s and his MNet performance this morning so yeah inital thoughts…. I loved the art direction for VVIP the styling was so my type of thing and the whole wonderlands thing was cute (not extremely original but i liked how they pulled it off and added their own spin to it.) The other Video was very cookie cutter yet aesthetically pleasing I liked the one scene where the girl is just a hologram and they are laying on the floor…very pretty. Both the video’s screamed YG! and I loved it. His Performance on Mnet was Hella good too. He had lots of Energy and did his usual Seungri thing y’know his own personal brand of panda swagga. I really wish GD would’ve accompanied his cause it would’ve just made his performances so much better but He did great alone. (here is to hoping GD feels better from his fever) Check out the two MV’s and His Performances below
Park JungMin (from SS501) released his solo mini album and MV for Not Alone. I really love his MV and album because he did something different that what everyone else is doing he did an inspirational, uplifting , and moving MV and the feel of his songs are very smooth and soothing. He is just plain pleasant and enjoyable to listen to and I love how when i listened to this album all I want to do is just relax and read a good book at a park in front of a pond or fountain. I like how this music makes me feel. Also i think the message of his title track is great and I think it might help a lot of people through some hard times in their lives. I give it up to him also his live performance on Mnet was graceful and wonderful you can definitely tell he is a Pro and knows what he is doing.
DBSK won last nights Mnet Countdown and also repairs the Mnet vs. SM feud. The performance was AWESOME (only thing was they pretty much lip synched the whole time but hey did I really care NOT ONE BIT because Hot damn the choreo was on point!) The owl suits were back for the Keep your head down pef. but like I said I am overlooking that fail as Homin did such a fantastic job.
MBlaq -Stay (Joon being dramatic G.O being G.O, SeungHo getting more screen time *thank shisus* Mir made a cute mistake and Thunder was how he was last week minus the nerves)
Mighty Mouth made their Comeback with “Tok Tok” and the performance was okay theyguys had lots of energy and soya sounded nice but I wish they had done a special more crazy stage then what they did….Maybe on MuBank they will do something a bit more Mighty Mouth Style
Other Performances included Han Groo, Secret, and Dal Shalbet.
That’s all for today hoped you enjoyed it. Thanks so much for reading !
Here is to Wishing Jjongie a quick recovery !
