It feels so good to be posting on this blog. I really should be doing something now but I thought what the hell.. I’m gonna write a post on my blog! I can’t believe that this blog has come a long way from the first time i created it. But again thank you for visiting my blog 🙂
Anyway so I’ve been busy with work and everything so I haven’t caught up with the latest Kpop trends. I still have to watch the year end Gayos.. I downloaded them but I need to find time to watch them. I’m missing a lot of songs lately, and my playlist hasn’t been updated for ages. So when my friend sent a video of a Kpop reality called Kpop Star, I didn’t know about it. And after I watched the performance she sent me I was literally having goosebumps! I never saw something like this in Kpop reality search!
I am talking about the breathtaking, brilliant, astonishing, superb (I’m running out of adjectives!) performance of Su Pearls!
One word: BRAVO!
I am not kidding when I say that I have goosebumps! This is one of the best I’ve seen on Korean reality! Can you imagine being there when they performed live! Ok too many exclamation points. — that shows you how excited and giddy I am to talk about this audition video. It’s unlike any other..
A quick background about the show: its called Kpop Star and its a show on SBS. Like most Kpop star search shows, they are looking for the next big star. However, this time, the judges on the show are from the 3 big companies that gave us the idol groups whom we now adore. They are BOA (SM Entertainment), Yang Hyun Seok (YG Entertainment), Jin Young Park (JYP Entertainment). I would probably guess that they are looking for the next big name in the Kpop industry.
So anyway, they do the same thing having auditions and stuff, but I have to say most of the contestants on this show are really good… So on with Su Pearls..
The reason why I liked this group so much was because of the harmony they did to the song. I mean, yes its a pop song.. but they gave a soulful twist to the song which made me great! And it sounded totally different from the original. I liked “The Boys” when Girls Generation did it, and I loved it more when they made their rendition to this song. Girls Generation did the Pop version while Su Pearls did the Rnb version! Different genres of music, same song! Wonderful, just utterly wonderful!
Also, you might have recognized the third girl on the video as the girl that sang Rolling In the Deep on the same show.
The video went viral that it was even shown on the news! Park Jimin — OMG! she’s only 15 and she can belt like that! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! This is probably one of the best Rolling in the Deep cover that I’ve heard! And her pronunciation’s great too. If I was closing my eyes, I wouldn’t have guessed it was a Korean singing it!
I’m watching out for these girls again! I like Lee Michelle too.. I’d love to see her sing.. I’m thinking she’s like the next Insooni.. kk I can’t wait to see more of her..
Looking forward to more of this show! (Su Pearls Fighting!!!!)
