Heard the Jayseelee cover of this uber nice song ‘Just The Way You Are’. Awesome song! I also like the original song by Bruno Mars! Argh, I love ballads. I am a sucker for ballads. Anybody love ballads too? Care to intro some good ballad singer(s) ? 🙂
Hi folks, here’s another new hit single by the South Korean all girl band, Miss A entitled Love Again! Check it out if you haven’t already done so!
Hey folks. I was just watching this old 2001 movie Moulin Rouge on Star Movies recently, I am sure many of you heard of this movie and much more, the theme song Come What May. But as I watch this movie the second time, I realized there was another super nice romantic song; Your Song! This version is Ewan McGregor cover, but the original singer is the genius Elton John. Alright, maybe most of you realized that earlier than me, but ya. Enjoy!
P.S. If you guys like my blog entries, do spread the word of it! Muchly appreciated!

From the country that brought to you kimchi, soap operas and more, the Republic of Korea (South Korea) continues to make waves internationally, proving to the world they can do music too, churning out mega-ly popular hits [such as ‘Nobody’ by Wonder Girls and ‘Sorry Sorry’ by Super Junior] that caught the world’s attention as though shouting out loud “Hey, check out Korean Music man!”
SS501 and Super Junior
And if you think that was it from Korea, you have no idea. Wonder Girls and Super Junior is just the tip of the iceberg, triggering a massive amount of Kpop bands big or small, emerging from the Kimchi state. What makes Korean music on par with international standards is… you don’t have to know the [Korean] language to love the songs!
What makes Kpop (abbreviation for Korean pop music) so alluring to listeners is more than just the sweet/handsome look of the idols, but also their ability to blend a catchy tune with awesome dance moves AND choreography. Seriously, how can anyone dislike Kpop?
I must declare that I am not a Kpop fan, I am a fan of good music, really. Tong Yan asked me to listen to this song; Bad Girl Good Girl by Miss A. And I did, and boy, this song was like a drug, the more I listened to it, the more I liked it! Check out the youtube video below.
The verdict? Kpop is here to stay for a long time. Not just the music though, don’t forget the Kimchi, Bibimbaq, BBQ Chicken/Beef/Pork and the soap operas (Full House, Boys Over Flowers, Dae Jang Geum, etc). The contemporary Korean Culture is a family affair. The music for the kids, the soap operas for the adults, the food for everyone.
