By all means, do it!
Fans in Sydney saw Psy perform last night ..
He only performed Gangnam Style and then left.
Some fans paid $3000 AUD a ticket to see Psy .
Just shows that K-Pop is getting bigger
But that's not where I'm heading :
I felt the urgent need to say that Capsule has been a lot more creative in their way of making electronic music than Perfume did. And that's taking into account Perfume is incorporated in the Nakata Yasutaka's livestock, most of what they've been doing has been extremely influenced by Capsule's work. ..in a more.. mercantile way.
Just take a look at MEG, Kyari Pamyu Pamyu, Suzuki Ami, Perfume.. they're all variations of the same Capsule baseline-DNA.
If I take a Capsule album I can pick a few songs that I like, and the rest don't interest me at all, but if I pick a Perfume album I can't do that, because I love all the songs.
So did anyone listen to the Epik High album and what did you think? I was disappointed with the song featuring Park Bom, but the rest of the album was pretty good!
Beautiful Stranger in particular is so amazing.
Back during high school in the early 2000s, I'd listen to pretty much nothing but Kpop. FinKL, S.E.S, Baby VOX, BoA all the girl groups haha. Stopped following Kpop after most of those groups broke up. I think the most listened Kpop for me back then was As One, J, Drunken Tiger, BoA.
Shortly after that I started listening to Cantopop, which was OK, but only the songs from the more veteran singers were good. The strange thing about the Hong Kong entertainment circle is that every singer also acts and there are very very few people that are good at both. I don't think I can name anyone that just purely sings or acts and not both.
As far as Jpop, I think I discovered Utada Hikaru around the time that Final Distance came out because I wrote some essay for English class on the lyrics for Deep River. Pretty much been following her ever since, missed a chance to see her live at the Fillmore when she came to SF only because I thought it was a promo tour for This is the One, which I didn't really care for, but ended up being a mini concert of sorts with some of her Japanese songs as well. Wish I had gone to see that and that one day she'll come back from her "hiatus".
Yeah, I can see BoA's dancing is still as good as ever and looking as hot as ever
I believe Tiger JK married Tasha (another favorite) and they have a baby now. I remember him bringing their kid on stage in a clip somewhere.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg6VQksmlKY probably the best freestyle rap from a female I've heard (Tasha).

Maybe.. Maybe Not!?
It's slow, yet it has such a happy beat!
Everlasting is one of my personal favorites from BoA.
