This week in k-pop has been CRAY-Z! This is the slightly more tamer article of the previous two I put… I think… Any who let’s get started shall we?
So Kyuhyun’s song “At Gwanghwamun” has a music video out! I was really psyched because I heard Irene from Red Velvet is an actress in it. She was in it for about 10 seconds and all she did was sit on a bed sadly at the end of the video… That was disappointing. Maybe they did it to squash the Kyuhyun Seulgi rumors from early on? Anyway, the video itself was good but I feel like it was made cheaply. Zhoumi’s was probably better quality than Kyuhyun’s video.You could evidently see there were lights and cameras ON CAMERA! Why would you film it like that? It might be reflecting someone is always looking in on Kyuhyun since he’s such a famous star, but WHY WOULD YOU FILM A FILM SET?! Also, that weird bathtub that looks like a cup HAD NO FAUCET ON IT! He sat outside it and he gets wet at one part but he’s still outside the tub! There’s a line about coffee in the song but the cup bathtub don’t even look like a coffee cup! Come on SM… you have such elaborate videos for groups and certain solo artists… but not for Kyuhyun?! I swear they’re just trying to be cheap, maybe a lack of funds since SNSD and EXO has downsized, hmm? The video wasn’t that great but the song was absolutely beautiful! Kyuhyun’s ballad singing with his oh-so smooth voice is as beautiful as ever! I’m glad they didn’t auto tune him, or if the did at least it wasn’t super obvious. Kyuhyun doesn’t need autotune because honestly he’s a great singer both live and in the studio. Check out his new music video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUbq_IXBaYg and watch him sing a Stevie wonder song live! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odhqGuePbxc
So now there’s comeback rumors at YG! Hi Sunyhun has had great success so there was a “Who’s next” picture posted on their Facebook page. Many people are speculating it’s GDTOP and I HOPE IT IS! The industry official stated that the best possible and eligible candidate for the comeback would be GD&TOP, a BIGBANG sub-unit which debuted in 2010 with the track “High High”. The official revealed that GD&TOP recently scheduled an upcoming appearance on KBS’s Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook, stating, “Instead of making a comeback through an end-of-the-year awards show like they did during their first sub-unit debut, wouldn’t their appearance together on Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook mean that it’s for a comeback?” It’s a very interesting theory and it even by itself it stands as a good possibility. Others have speculated It would be a GD Taeyang album. The two were originally trained to debut as some sort of duo but were both put into Big Bang as trainees. That’s why Taeyang changed from a rapper to a ballad singer, remember? This one also holds as a possibility since GD writes music for Taeyang, he did for all of Taeyang’s album work. I guess the statement TOP made about Big bang having difficulties getting together stand true so this is probably yet another distraction. And the statement Taeyang made after his last concert about working hard in the studio is Big Bang could be interpreted differently… Say remember when YG was going to make a statement about GDKIKO? I swear he “conveniently” forgot…
Okay so there’s a bit of a scandal going on with our beloved Rain! Oh when it rains it pours! On November 13th some random netizen released a naked photo of a man and claims it was Rain from Kim Tae Hee’s phone. Kim Tae Hee did lose a phone and never did find it so this could spark a faker to make up this sort of thing. As we all know, Kim Tae Hee dates Rain. In response to these rumors, Rain’s agency said that they will be taking legal action. Rain’s legal representative Kim Nam Hong said in a phone call with Newsen on November 13, “Sometime today or tomorrow, we are planning on submitting a complaint. This is without a doubt a false rumor.”The representative also said, “We do not know why something like this was released. At first we thought it was something to just laugh and forget about, but there seem to be many who think it actually is Rain. We thought people would think otherwise, but it is becoming a problem. Moreover, it is something that will be seen not only in Korea, but China and Japan, as well. The fact that it says the photo is from Kim Tae Hee’s phone is an issue, also”. So almost definitely, this is merely just a rumor. *sigh* Rain is known as man candy and he’s often shirtless on stage. Hr’s quite handsome and has many female fans so it was probably bound to happen. If only American artist’s companies took such legal action for rumors…That’s why k-pop is a better industry than American music industry, in my opinion…. Anywho….
