What is up with these new words in Kpop (Hyorish, Mirotic, Rainism)? Just recently Rain released a look at his upcoming 5th album jacket titled “Rainism”. Well it features Rain looking mob like. Another photo features Rain with a group of dancers being drenched with rain (no pun intended) playing tag of war, maybe. Which really took hold of my curiosity, in that the dancers look really gay. One guy is dressed with a torn t-shirt and sailor hat (very Village People), another dancer with a face mask (very S&M), with the other dancers t-shirtless (which I personally have no problem with. HEHEHEHEH), and Rain standing above them doing some kind of Riverdance pose.

Besides the horrible Riverdance-Village People-S&M-Hard Body-Ad oops album jacket. Rain did come out with a teaser video for his MV titled “Love Story” featuring Ha Ji Won as the lead actress.

In the sneak peek Rain showcases his acting skills by portraying a guy who is funny and tough, and who is maybe in love with a woman whom is already taken. But of course Rain will fight to get her no matter how many people he will have to fight or near kill (as so the fight scene in video displayed). I like the beginning part where he speaks in English and the his vocals are sounding amazing.

I personally can’t wait for his new album even if I am not so keen to the gayish Riverdance photo.

Rain is planning on having performances on Oct 9th at the MBC Dream Concert and on Oct 17th a showcase titled ‘Me, Rain, Dance’.

Well these past few weeks been busy for me. Sorry for the lack of posting.

It seems that Boa’s US song “Eat You Up” was leaked recently….or was it? No outraged response from the SM clan on the “leaked” material. So some (like myself) are wondering if it’s some kind of marketing strategy to test Boa’s like ability here in the US. But really, will this song be enough to bring a huge American audience to the attention of Korean music artists and take a minute and listen to it? Coolsmurf did a post on it and has a poll, so go and vote.

(Thanks to Yikes for bring this to my attention. :D)

Now will that make anyone rush to their Itunes and download it to their hearts desirer? Well for my standing point….. NO. Again what is Boa going to bring to the American music scene that’s not already here? Absolutely nothing. She sounds like a wannabe Britney Spears (which is nothing to brag about) and very robotic.

Boa’s robotic singing tone: IF -YOU -MOVE -ANY- CLOSER -BOY -THERE- IS- NO -GUARANTEE~…. Really is that singing or someone putting computer codes in a computer to make it sound like a person. It reminds me of one of those computer assisants when you call the telephone company when REAL LIVE assisants are too busy to help. lol

Another thing Yikes bought to my attention is that on Boa’s myspace page they have her place of orgin listed as “Korea, Democratic Peoples Republic of” i.e NORTH KOREA?  Boa is from North Korea? HAHAHAHAHA. They really need to change it to Republic of Korea also known as South Korea. Is Lee Soo Man keeping track of these things? I guess if the Myspace thing is working for Se7en and his US debut I guess it will work for Boa too. Wait……is it working for Se7en? Has anyone heard anything on Se7en lately besides how his US song is NOT exactly a sweet sound in American ears. Man! LSM do something new or in fact get a better singer to represent.

In other great news Lee Hyori and the WonderGirls are receiving some recognition from Prez Hilton.
