Controversies at Dream Concert – JYPE, 2PM and Jay Park

23 May

I thought the day I will talk about the departure of Jay Park from 2PM and the controversies surrounding the incident is far away. But alas, the day had come. A little bit unexpected, but I think I should have my say now. [Even if nobody is reading this. I just need a channel to rant. Excusez-moi.]

Okay. First thing first. I am a 2PM fan. A JYPE supporter. I supported every single artist under the label. From the former to the latter. You name it, god, Bi, Byul, Wonder Girls, 2AM, 2PM, JOO, Min, G-Soul, Im Jeong Hee, and several others and even the CEO himself, JYP. I might be biased writing this, but I’m being as natural as I can be.

Firstly, I’m not going around blaming Jay Parkย  for what had been happening to 2PM lately, but seriously, to those narrow-minded fans in Korea [oh, you know who you are], just leave that boy alone already!

Why are you chanting his name, for the love of GOD? Do you lot really need to do this?

  1. IF you are not pleased by 2PM’s behaviour and attitude at that bloody conference…
  2. IF you are not pleased by the rumour that JYPE bought $50,000 or more of 2PM CD’s so that they could win on Music Shows…
  3. IF you are not pleased that Music Bank and Inkigayo changed their point system to determine the winner…
  4. IF you think that they stole some other singer/band awards on music shows…
  5. IF you think they did not have any right to perform anymore…

then, WHY, do you have to use Jay Park’s name in order to HURT the boys? The boy had been bravely accepting the damages he had done in the past, had tried to get on his feet again and were trying his best to move on with his life. Do you think he would love to see on the internet, people shouting his name to hurt those he once held dear in his heart?

Secondly, if you are expecting some kind of apology from 2PM because of their behaviour at the conference, then bash them. Don’t bash anyone else. When they got on any stage, just stay put and quiet. Silence is the new loud, you know? And as much as I wanted to say this, I think it’s useless for me to tell to them to put yourself in their shoes. It is useless, and will be forever useless to say this because these people care more about themselves. Demand an apology? HAH! Why do you even need an apology? Did they fucked up your life? No. Of course not.

Do you think the boys were not upset at all during the conference? Do you think nobody told them to watch out whatever they were going to say? Do you think the boys were not tired because of what had happened? Do you think the boys were happy for the fact that they were left with 6 members because Jay Park decided to quit?

Why do you think Jay Park quit in the first place? Why do you think the boys had to let him go?

For all of these questions, we DO NOT know the definite answers. Only God and them knew. When we didn’t know anything, the turmoil in their hearts, how can we judge them? How can we, a mere third-party on the sideline, decide that they were right or wrong? We are not GOD. We don’t have the right.

Thirdly, if it’s true that JYPE bought those CD, so what? Did he bought the CDs using your money? He used his own money, I bet. And yes, I know that’s morally wrong. But I am someone who believes in karma. If he did wrong, it won’t be long when he got his punishment. Oh, if you said this incident is the punishment for JYP for hoarding the CDs, then JYP really has luck by his side. He had been doing things that was worse, and the punishment was just a… very small price to pay?

But why would a smart CEO waste his time and money hoarding CDs in order to let the boys win on music shows? A theoretical question though, what if the rumour was spread by JYPE themselves? Bad publicity is still a publicity. [Sarcasm intended]

Fourthly, if you are not pleased Music Bank and Inkigayo changed their format, go in front of their building and stage a strike or a protest. Didn’t you all have lots of time to spare in your hands? Besides, MBC or SBS had the reputation to listen to their audience’s voice more than they did listen to the artists or company labels. They’ll sure convert the system back to the one they used the last time.

Fifthly, stealing is bad. But what to do? The MCs presented them the awards. Should they step aside and say ‘We can’t accept the awards because we stole it’ ? Oh, come on! That’s the way of life. Other people’s loss is somebody else’s gain. Geez, grow up already [even though I know these people won’t]. We did not live in world that is black and white. Everything is grey.

Next, if they don’t have the right to perform, then why on Earth there were people who turned up for their Guerilla Concert? The one where Taec shed his manly tears for the first time on stage. There were still people or fans who still like [if not LOVE] them, and as far as I am concerned, fans kept a band alive. Zero fans, and you are out of the industry. Like Nichkhun said,

Weโ€™re living coz we have you.

I felt sorry for both 2PM members and Jay Park for the ugly turns in their respective lives. But they were trying to move on.

Why can’t we?

Super Junior Explosive Comeback!

14 Mar

Welcome back Super Junior!Finally the day had come, and I am very sure that every single ELF living on this Earth is very happy. ๐Ÿ˜€ Even though I am not one of them. Anyway, back to business. I’m here to comment, so here is.

The title song, Sorry Sorry is very catchy. Reminds me of Gee by SNSD at first listen,but what to do. Both group are from SM Entertainment, so the similarity is kind of ‘unavoidable’. Nice cheorography nonetheless, very well done. Having ‘split’ the boys into smaller ‘groups’ as they danced away is a very good idea actually. Some of the dance stepI reminds me of Mirotic by DBSK and Rainism by Bi (Rain) was wondering whose eye and whose thigh (clad with laced-stockings) were featured in first few minutes of the MV, because I don’t really see the need of ‘them’.

Han Geng was the only one who was wearing shades, and he kind of stood out for that reason. And yeah, when he executed some of the dance sequence, he reminds me of Bi (Rain) performing Rainism, again. XD And as usual, its nearly impossible to get everyone on camera for a long time, so a few members had a blink and miss appearances, quite a pity. Especially who doesn’t really sing, most prominently Lee Teuk, Ki Bum and Hee Chul. As well as Han Geng, Eun Hyuk and Shin Dong I think.

Seung Ri, the boy had grown up!

6 Jan

Holy crap. That’s my first reaction after I finished watching his solo attempt with ‘Strong Baby‘. I don’t really get why the song get such a silly title, but the song is unexpectedly nice to the ears.

Well, except for a few words (including the word ”crack’. I mean, what’s up with that? O.o) and the weird choice of words in GD’s rap. If they do a little bit better in these two areas, I honestly believe the song would score 10 out of 10 in my hall of fame.

Get a glimpse of Seung Ri strutting everything he got in the MV. Featuring G-Dragon.

Bi (Rain) Promoting ‘Only You’

22 Nov

I had never really do fangirling here, considering that I am an avid fan of him. To be honest, I am experiencing, lets say… withdrawal? Maybe because he’s away from Korea a lot, and its kind of hard to ‘track him down’.

Anyway, I’m glad he’s back in Korea. I found this cute, so I thought I’ll just post this here.

The writing on the paper says ‘Bi is not that good’, but it was only a joke. Written by his dancers. LOL They were really good friends. ๐Ÿ™‚

2AM…. ์ด๋…ธ๋ž˜

12 Nov

I think it’s still not to late posting this up. Actually I really don’t like sad things, because I always cry. But… I love this song so much, so I ended up crying again and again.

This is one of the songs that I love just for the first time hearing it. Good job, JYP. LOL

Here is the debut stage of 2AM on KBS Music Bank 11th July 2008.

H-Eugene ft Ye Eun Cute Performance!

26 Oct

Yeay! I was entirely happy when Ye Eun’s and H-Eugene finally sorted out their schedule difference and decided to do three stages together for ‘Baby I Love You’ performance! ๐Ÿ™‚ ์™„์ž” ํ–‰๋ณตํ•˜๋‹ค!

I really a fan of Wonder Girls, and Ye Eun was my favourite member. Just because. Even though I know H-Eugene long before (I mean I knew when he debuted) and although he’s quite a good rapper, he’s just not my cup of tea.

He really knew how to attract my attention when he get hold of Ye Eun to sing with him. Ha! Smart huh? (Am I that thick-skinned? I wonder…)

Anyway, here’s the first ever collabs with Ye Eun!
