Asking the important questions: Would you rather be hit with a Rocket Punch (🚀👊) or Cherry Bullet (🍒🔫)?



Think I'll go with a "cherry bullet". Rocket Punch seems more dangerous since they want to "hit the world" with one of their OP sucker punches, which makes them sound like super villains.

Meanwhile Cherry Bullet is all about video games, so odds are they'd only attack you in VR or something. So as long as it isn't some Sword Art Online shit you should be fine. Or they'll just tell you to put your "hands up" and rob you IRL 😅
... I WANNA HIT THE WORLD WITH ROCKET PUNCH!


This is an experience.
i ... don't hate this song. huh. it's definitely al over the place, but there's some interesting stuff there. that video tho. i never thought i'd ever say that a mv needed a higher framerate, but with some of the pans and movement they are doing it feels like a low framerate stab in the eyes at time. and that's besides for the video just being an absolute wild mess. it's fun, but i wouldn't watch it a second time. i will listen to it again tho.



Oh no, Itzy is going to release the absolute bop of 2020 with that grunge sound.

(Actually, sounds like that is one of the b-sides.)
a grunge inspired sound, but where is my grunge visual concept?
(ngl this already sounds better than average itzy to me.)

Just listened to the NCT 127 song and uff. I don't know what to think. It's a mess for sure, but there are a few sections I like.

What's with Blockberry making LOONA cover all these SM boy groups?

Also, performance was kinda underwhelming for me. Girls' Generation remains the group that delivered the best Sorry Sorry cover still.
Probably because their Cherry Bomb dance cover did so well for them. Saw a translated bit from a Korean article that said it was the first dance cover from an idol group to reach 10m views.

That was such a big deal for Gowon since OMG is literally the reason she wanted to become an idol herself.

That Lim Kim song is really nice I like that kind of thing.

Crazy how BORN HATER was literally in the trash before he got to listen to it again and got it out of the bin. Still one of my fav Epik High songs.

What is Nizi project actually? Is it like sixteen?
"Nizi Project is JYP’s girl group survival show that will work towards the debut for the first ever Japanese girl group from JYP.

26 contestants, coming from Japan & abroad, have been selected for the group.

Some of the contestants being prior JYP trainees such as Yamaguichi Mako, Ahn Yuna, Yokoi Rina, & Suzuno Mihi.

The program will have 2 seasons. The current season being aired in Q1, which will focus on training the contestants. After that will come the next season airing in Q2, which will work to finalize the groups said members.

The lineup number has yet to be announced. However with so many trainees participating, it is safe to assume the group number will be enough to debut all the fan favorites.

JYP has confirmed that Nizi Project will not only have Japanese activities, but global activities if they are popular enough to hold them.

Considering they have fluent Korean & English speakers among their contestant roster, Nizi Project has what it takes to become the next big global girl group."

Been listening to Weki Meki for the last hour on Spotify and I'm like: "They low-key have one of the strongest discographies in the game." 😂

Listening to "Iron Boy" now:

Glad this album is having some legs in terms of promo. She also won a couple of Korean Music Awards last weekend (Korean aquivalent of the Grammies), but the big winner was Baek Yerin, winning 3 awards including Album of the year. Too bad the ceremony was cancelled due to the Coronavirus

Love this. Also, kudos for having a general concept, sticking to it and advancing it in a very simple and clean way. Maybe we need more video producers having a go at having their own kpop group/solo. A Digipedi girl gorup could be soooo cool.

Happy International Women's Day. A little bit late for this due to my corona treatment yesterday 😅😅

And stream BoA



======


Also, i love kick it. It sounds different from blackpink's version, but i love how it incorporates traditional chinese element into the song, and mad dog also gets the same treatment. Also the lyric is pure bullshit but at least more tolerable when you utilize it into music

Corona treatment Riversands ? Are you doing alright?
Oh sorry for misconfusion. I mean testing and treatment. We are demanded by government to test for corona and be treated like a sick person, and also be given something like injection and etc etc. Sick or not sick. And yes. You dont read this wrong, because our government prevents corona virus in a very bizzare way
