I haven’t paid too much attention to Jpop recently. But this is essentially a cross between Jpop and Kpop so I decided to post it.
It’s the PV for One Day, a track by 2AM and 2PM.
I’m sure their fans would have known of this already. I am not much of a 2PM fan (except for Nichkhun). I liked them before, when Jay Park was there, but for me after Again and Again and I Hate You, I really didn’t quite get their songs. But I still like Nichkhun! It’s a different story for 2AM. I liked them since I heard What To Do and Confession of a Friend and I’ve never stopped liking them!
This song is a Japanese single. I think this song is actually a good one for the Japanese market. It’s the kind of song most Japanese boy band releases. Do I like it? Hmm.. it’s ok I think, but not a favorite of mine, but pleasant to the ear. I don’t hate it, just not very catchy for me. (I think this is the big difference for me with Jpop and Kpop)
The video is quite simple, just them dressed in suits and doing the usual dance. Ok Taecyeon! I don’t know what’s with me but I like the way you look in this video! Kya.. and not to mention Jinwoon (sorry I can’t helped but be biased). And yay! we got to see 2AM dance again. Speaking of dancing, their moves remind me of Arashi and their dance steps from the not so old days. If I hadn’t know better, I would think they were a Japanese boy band instead of a Korean one. Suddenly I miss my Arashi crazy days! Matsumoto Jun, Sakurai Sho! (at this point I am surpressing my Arashi fandom because this post is about 2AM and 2PM).
Final Verdict:I think the song is for the Japanese market, not the usual 2AM/2PM song, but good for Jpop. And the dancing reminds me of my Japanese boyband fandom! Oh how I miss Arashi!
If there is SM Town… and then there’s YG Family… now we are introduced to JYP Nation.
This is how the artists under JYP Entertainment call their group. And they have recently released their MV “This Christmas“.
Yes, Christmas is in the air!!! Oh well.. it should be since it’s December! But I love the coziness of this video… And I think its good because they captured the true meaning of what Christmas is.. being together with the ones you love.. be it romantic or not. Oh and I love the way they had Nichkhun do the last part of the song! very very good!
Christmas is actually my favorite time of the year! I’m so excited for Christmas!! Thank you JYP Nation for making me start to feel the Christmas season… so I think I’d better start doing my Christmas list!
I just finished watching the delayed telecast of the Dream Concert. It was fun… you should see it! and I think youtube will be a very good place to look for the videos.
Now in that broadcast, the performance of 2PM was not included. And it is in this concert that they had their first performance after Jaebum quit the team.. sigh… But though they were not in the concert.. there are videos of their performance on youtube.. so I am putting it up!
I haven’t uploaded a lot of stuff about 2PM on this blog… probably because the same time they had their Again and Again single on the charts was the same time Super Junior was promoting Sorry Sorry.. and I really like Sorry Sorry 😀
But after watching today’s Music Core, I liked the new song they are promoting and that’s why I’m posting it here. According to some article I read somewhere, the guys have started promotions for their new song called I Hate You. Their first performance was in the MNet countdown last Thursday where they performed both Again and Again and I hate You. This is the video from that performance.
I’m not very familiar with the boys yet… so I’m sorry I cannot give much comment… well maybe except Nichkhun — he looked really cute! ahahahaha 😀
Here’s the link to their performance in today’s music core:
