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’.

Recently the teaser poster came out for DBSK’s 4th album release titled MIROTIC, which is coming out on 23rd of September (no info on pre-orders). Some information from soompi about what Mirotic means “MIROTIC” is a newly coined word from the Korean word “MIRO” and the English word “TIC“. The word “miro” means “lost or maze”. Some say that the meaning of the word Mirotic is the feeling of being wrapped in love with no way out. Mmmmmm that sounds really deep…..I guess this is a sign of DBSK’s maturity over the past years in their personal lives and musical growth.
Now comes the 20 second preview of Mirotic which is a typical DBSK with the big dance sequence and close ups. Oh and also shirtless DBSK which to me is not a bad thing because in my eyes anything DBSK is FANTASTIC . In the sneak preview DBSK displays their dance and vocal skills that they are known for and a new look, and a little bit of flesh which is all good to me. hehehhe 😀

Omg DBSK “Hey (Don’t Bring Me Down)” song is out around the net. It has a strong beat and the vocals are great. I see that DBSK are going to be hitting us hard with their new sound. Should other Kpop groups like Big Bang and SuJu be worried about DBSK upcoming album?
