Next…a cover that is better than the original?
The music video of the week goes to Duble Sidekick‘s Mikey‘s “Loving You.” I am totally digging the R&B version, and dare I say that it might be better than the original Sistar one?
Other notable music videos:
Kang Seung Yoon – “Stealer“
MBLAQ – “No Love“
NC.A – “My Student Teacher“
Kim Hyung Joon – “Always Love You” Feat. Sunny Hill‘s Kota
Phantom – “I Already Know“
Min Yeon Jae – “Don’t Love That Person” feat. Yoo Min Soo
UV – “Don’t Look; Don’t Sleep“
The teaser of the week goes to Wonder Girl‘s former member Sunmi for some smooth dance moves and a much more grown up image. Big Bang‘s Seungri‘s teaser would have made it as the teaser of the week if it hadn’t been something I would not want to get caught watching. Remember when K-Pop used to be about dancing in animal costumes?
Also, K-Pop? How about some K-Reggae? Soompi Shop is having a Haha and Skull special package. You can also submit your questions to the hot new girl group Odd Eye and win a free personalized CD! Just for fun, check out these awesome made up K-Pop movie posters with all your summer hits.
Next…are acting idol groups the future of K-Pop and K-dramas?
In drama and film news…
- The first acting idol group will debut in a flower boy drama. They got the looks down but can they act? Can they sing? I guess we will have to wait to find out.
- Ji Sung, Hwang Jung Eum and the cast of “Secret” held their first script reading.
- Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun, who shared a hot yet awkward romance in the movie “Thieves,” will reunite for a fantasy drama “The Man From the Stars.”
- Hyun Bin and Han Ji Min will star in a historical movie called “The King’s Wrath.“
- Sulli will be the cutest pirate ever with Son Ye Jin and Kim Nam Gil in “Pirates” or as I like to call it, “Pirates of the Koreabbean.”
- For adult eyes only! Song Seung Hun is considering a sizzling rated-r romance. Ooh la la.
- Why just watch a drama when you can read it with awesome commentary! Check out our very own “Master’s Sun” recaps!
- The 2NE1 Unnies released the first episode of their “Double Park TV.” The first episode is just the oldest 2NE1 members acting silly and kidnapping young girls to preview their music.
- The staff of “Daddy Where Are You Going?” will take legal action against those despicable people who make anti-cafes for little kids. Good for them, show those low-lives what’s up!
- Lee Hyori spoke on the topic of boobs and celebrity life. Both are fascinating topics.
- Who writes the best* “We Got Married” recaps? Noona does!
*Super biased opinion.
