i think he has a crush on saho
you are talking about the idol scene only I presume? The Korean hip hop scene is fantastic!
yeah only idol related, I have yet to get in korean hip hop, since I'm focused on idols right now.... could you give me some advice where to start from though?
If Erii is ready or not I have no idea, but as many other people have said, I’d also prefer if she didn’t join the final group lineup... not because of her lack of skills or amount of dedication or because it would be tough or even because she is young or childlish... the reason I wouldn’t want her to join is because, considering the previous groups formed from produce, considering the top favorite candidates, I just don’t see Erii fitting the concept they might adopt. In fact, I don’t see how a lot of the 48g participants would harmonize with final line up. As much as we need variety inside a group, it’s hard to idealize an image that fits everybody if the members are just so completely opposite... I mean, in a group with Gaeun in it, can you see Erii having a place? It just seems too weird to me... but maybe it’s just lack of perspective on my part... I think this is a good opportunity for the girl, but not necessarily she needs to be top 12 to feel a change in her carrier, I mean, her path inside 48g might change from now on already if people from the 48 fandom start to notice her more!
A conversation I imagine taking place:
Cho-Won: Okay, we need a badass name for our group
Nanami: How about "Lunch"?
Minami: Or "Dinner"?
Cho-Won: No... those just aren't intimidating enough.
Erii: I've got it! "Snack"
The word hangs in the air. The team members look at each other, a new hope suddenly invigorating them, and as one, they whisper,
chowon and yoonjin seem to be getting a lot of love on 2ch/5ch.
yoonjin because she was a great center for high tension and chowon because she did the best she could do with the babies (even though she’s a baby herself). also they somehow found her highschool yearbook picture and complimented her on her cuteness.
i didnt realize this but when the leaders had to run and pick the song titles they wanted to perform chowon actually grabbed high tension to accomodate the babies, but somehow they ended up with boombayah
I'd start with Epik High - their first 3 albums are for me absolute masterpieces of hip hop overall. The later albums became a bit too "deep" for me - but literally everyone else loves them so you can't really go wrong with anything. Dynamic Duo is another classic, very similar to Epik High style-wise. Drunken Tiger another one; that brings us to Tiger JK and his wife Yoon Mirae who is widely considered the best Korean female rapper (and she's one of the best singers as well)... From the most recent stuff I enjoy everything Primary produces and the new girl on the block Heize.
Thank you @nvmea that's a lot to start with! Much appreciated!
A Hidden Visual
A Kind-hearted Angel
my heart will actually break if she gets eliminated ;=; especially since she just completed the first stage for the support thing ;-; Mnet, if she gets eliminated....give her the water jelly before you send her off ;-;
If I may add, there are also the current new generation of hiphop. I'd say that you will feel a bigger influence of the west in them but they are the current "it" kids (nvmea suggested more hiphop legends)
- dpr live (some songs; Action!, Know Me, Text Me, To Myself)
- Sik k (some songs: iffy)
Btw: listen to eung frestyle by dpr, sik k, owen, punchnello and flowsick! A must!
- Of course the king of idol rappers, Zico (whichever of his singles go ahead)
- i personnally like Zico better as part of fanxy child so some recommended songs by fanxy child: fanxy child, paradise (it's under millic ft fanxy but millic is part of fanxy).
- Zicodean produced a song called Things These Days for SMTM6 with Young B, Killagramz, Hangzoo and Hash Swan... all talented rapper, listen to it to hear the full potential of the 6 of them
I mentioned Dean who is more rnb, if you like this style you should listen to him. He has two songs with Heize actually (And July and shut up and groove). He's a singer producer. A gem. Actually Takeuchi Miyu covered his song Instagram. If you havent listened to the cover or the original i suggest you go right now!!
I should stop here lol
Oh and for the hoe anthems you have Jay Park...
dpr live is great
thanks a lot @kamihime, I'm definitely not up to date with the newest scene so I might check some of them too (although in general not a big fan of the recent US/Korea pop and hip hop trends...)
Are the latest Show me the money seasons worth watching btw? haha
he is! he deserves (dpr as a team overall actually) all the success and fans he's gaining
honestly, i'm also not big on some of the khiphop artists nowadays, as you said, there's a us pop/hiphop trend and meh. as long as it doesn't go as far as where american hiphop is nowadays though, i won't complain.
as for the latest seasons... i don't think smtm6 is worth watching BUT the songs are worth listening to. season 5 is better imo
Took me 395 questions but I finally got
1. Yabuki Nako
2. Miyawaki Sakura
3. Jo Yuri
4. Tanaka Miku
5. Takahashi Juri
6. Motomori Aoi
7. Takeuchi Miyu
8. Jang WonYoung
9. Kim Nayoung
10. Choi Yena
11. Son Eun Chae
12. Kojima Mako
with Sato Minami as 13 and Honda Hitomi as 14 and Myao at 15.
I have a weakness for Tanuki faces
Thanks for sharing!
I wonder if they'll update it after episode 5?
Thank you @kamihime duly noted all the names you wrote.
No it isn't. That's completely disingenuous and distortion of what people have posted.
Erii is simply bad, I'm surprised she even made it to the show.
But if the fans vote for her and she gets Top 12, who are we to say she shouldn't be there?
Anyway, Episode 4 was a chore and I don't even remember most of it already.
The High Tension performances were fun and they looked cleaner than anything AKB has ever done and the Boombayah voting results were complete BS (Team 1 was obviously better).
Moekyun practising on her own in Japan and sending videos back and forth with her team warmed my cold-heart.
I hope she makes it far.
The whole center discussion for the Very Very Very performance seemed forced to me. They all looked the same in those videos lol
I understand it's reality TV and they need to act it out, but sometimes the teachers put me on my nerves with their fake angry/worried/happy faces.
Ohwell, next episode should be fun with all the tears!
This is good, love the interaction between them when waiting for reharsal
