Preaching Too Much….. Epik High?

I used to like Epik High’s music a lot but Tablo… I can’t stand him!! He just preaches all the time!! About how people are not valuing music any more, and how you just need to be popular to win awards and it’s not about the quality of the music…. arrrgggg I’ve had enough!

Their latest album wasn’t too good to be honest…. everything is starting to sound the same. Nothing new.

Also I’ve recently read the translated lyrics for the title song ‘Wannabe’ and am I being too sensitive or does it sound like it is aimed at a recently idol who has recently released a solo but is surrounded by controversy [get my drift?]



The One Where….Dara Fans Are A Disgrace to 2NE1

Yes you read right, I think [I’m not saying all of you Dara fans] but a number of Sandara Park’s fans are a disgrace to 2NE1 and even Dara herself.

I’m a lurker on youtube and I find it fascinating  when I see how users on youtube get very defensive when there are other users who post negative comments about Dara. I’ve noticed there are always 2 or 3 users that is constantly posting comments which contain how weak of a member Dara is in 2NE1.

I agree, I think Dara is the weakest member of the group and that she is only really there because she is pretty and she has a variety show personality. She is the member that can talk and answer questions. I agree when I see comments such as: ‘she is not very good at singing live, her range isn’t good’ and etc.

The majority of Dara’s fans will probably read a negative comment and think ‘oh well this person disagrees so what’, but there are a number of fans who will respond to another user’s negative opinion with some personal comments. It’s like they cannot take criticism, but it’s not even aimed at them.

These Dara fan users start calling those negative commenter names and what not. It really gives those negative commenter the upper hand as they always reply in a civil manner, if anything with politeness. Then these Dara fans will always come back with a rather unintelligent and un-thought through comment or argument [whichever you prefer].

I read them and as much as I would like to disagree with the negative commenter, I can’t help but want to defend them as these Dara fans are really digging themselves a grave and only givning themselves [as Dara fans and even 2NE1 fans] a bad name.

To point out, I often notice a certain user on youtube who has negative comments of Dara but is actually a huge 2NE1 fan, being called a anti or a basher just because of the Dara negative comments. I like to ask the question: What makes you think that user is a anti? Is it because of a little negative comment? I would say its constructive criticism because that user has high expectations of 2NE1 and maybe feels that Dara somewhat lets them down.

Well this is my point of view but I do have one thing to say:



The One Where…. Minamoto Made Me Weak At The Knees

I was recently in Piccadilly Circus [London] and thought that I had not gone in to Minamoto Kitchoan for quite and while and as I thought about it, I started to crave for some japanese confectionery and decided to go.

The One Where… At Least Someone Speaks Out Some Humane Words

BaekGa of Koyote has expressed his opinions on the recent Jay Park frenzy.

“The people who almost drove me insane with the pervert accusations about two months ago have done it again. They have sacrificed a co worker, and a good friend. You kill with your fingers where no one can see you, and they have made sad, unnecessary sacrifices, but you say it doesn’t even affect you in the heart. All I can say is that I am truly scared.”

BaekGa had been accused of being a pervert after an accused picture surfaced on the internet. But in the end, it turned out to be a picture of someone that looks like him.

He continued, “People make mistakes. He was a young kid going through a tough time and yet they made it seem like he still had bad thoughts in his mind…The entertainment business to the naked eye can be joyful and satisfying, but the mental and the physical pain we have to go through before we get to that point is indescribable. I wish you guys can stop…If he made the same mistakes twice, then he is to blame, but if you give him enough time to elaborate on his actions, he will become a better person. Finally, I know you all might think that I am writing with no credibility, but this is solely my opinion and I stand by it. But before you curse or judge me, look into yourself and see how clean of a person you are first.”

These are some strong words by BaekGa. This further develops the celebrity support for Jay Park. BaekGa really viewed this as a humane issue, not just an entertainment business issue.


GOOD ON YOU BAEKGA!!! At least someone has a brain!! Or at least someone has the courage to speak out what others are thinking other than just comforting words!!



The One Where… Jay Flew Away


Look what you stupid Netizens have done!!! You made Jaebeom go back to America!!

Just to refresh:

Jaebeom leader of korean idol group 2PM [under JYP Ent] went under immense scrutiny almost a week ago for comments he had made on myspace in 2005-2007. He had once written ‘korea is gay’ and ‘I hate korea’ and it was these two comments that caused and apparent up roar in Korea.

Since then he has apologised with explainations, 2PM’s activities were cancelled, their comeback delayed and Jaebeom replaced on an up-coming variety show.

Still that wasn’t enough these stupid brainless korean netizens decided to start a petition entitled “Jaebeom Should Commit Suicide” …… WHAT THE FCUK!!!! Seriously do these people have nothing better to do?? What is worse is that the petition has had 3000+ people sign it!!!

Korea as a country I am interested in due to the culture [I suppose it started when I found out Chinese words were used until the 19th & 20th century] and I suppose you could say I follow kpop and its dramas and variety shows but the fans and the netizens makes me despise the country a little. It makes the Koreans seem like even though the country in technology is ahead but the people and how they live/think is still very behind the times [possibly some 20 years]

Now now don’t get all offended.

I do not think Jay should have quit or leave at all!! He was young, he was in a completely foreign place [yes I know he is korean but do you think he would say his first language is korean?], the people didn’t accept him, he didn’t know how to communicate with anyone…… let me ask you How would you feel???
