And the votes are in for the 2010 MAMAs!

(source)

I would like to say that SM’s boycotting was unnecessary, but if it isn’t a big slap in the face to have one of their top acts (Super Junior) taking home some of the most prestigious awards (Best Male Group, Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, etc.).

I’m all for the MAMAs, but not having SM artists, who’ve won, attending is really depressing. Another thing is that I really can’t believe is that SHINee didn’t win a single thing. With their recent steep rise in popularity, I would have thought that they’d have at least won something (Best Dance Performance, anyone?). But to each his own, and just know, that at the end of this year I will give you all an LMK version of this. But with no voting. I’m keeping this in house. Sorry! Maybe next year, but now, I’m still too much of a proby/newbie to do something that requires so much effort/advertising/time/effort…

Teaser anyone?

And a big congratulations to 2NE1, probably the biggest group of the year! 2-2-2-2NE1! They deserve all the success and awards in the world for their hard work and just down right amazing music!

This has everything to do with point 4., so until you read that point, this is for your collective viewing pleasure. Super Junior performing ‘No Other’ live.

P.S., I was like, ‘oh, Sungmin went blonde?’ But then I realised it wasn’t him. Then I thought ‘what the hell is Dongwoon doing in a SUJU performance, too weird… or maybe it’s a backup dancer… but they have 10 active members, why the hell do they need any backup dancers?’ I paused on his face and after completing the strenuous process of elimination I was like, ‘Oh! It’s Heechul!’ Nice. Just thought I’d share some good times! If I had just watched the whole thing through I would have realised who it was when Heechul does his solo bit. Sigh.

P.P.S., Yesung was really cute during the ‘No Other’ promotions. Ryeowook too. And Sungmin and Ryeowook are just too cute in this vid during the ‘Sorry, Sorry’ part. So, yeah… 😉

Music News: Super Junior’s Kim Hee Chul King Of Twitter? October 10, 2010

Yeah… the first thing I wondered when I signed onto Twitter and saw the trending topics was, “what the hell? Heechul?” Maybe it’s his birthday, or there was a scandal, or something, anything? But last I heard, he was off holidaying in the U.S. What kind of scandal can he scrounge up in the U.S.? Did he photobomb the President?

I still don’t know why he’s a trending topic on Twitter, and I really don’t know how this can be considered “Music News” worthy, but it just has me baffled. Well, I’m off to go and trend him on Twitter! 😉

The man has been trending for almost 22 hours. Bow down folks.

Heechul (#1) has also made Steamed Buns (#2) a trending topic. If you’re not offering him your young yet, you must be insane!

Kim Hee Chul ftw!!

Music Review: Super Junior / No Other (BONAMANA) July 15, 2010

Recently, Super Junior has released their latest track, No Other, to promote the release of their repackaged album of BONAMANA. The new album will have four news songs, including No Other, All My Heart, A Short Journey, and Shake it Up (Remix).

Their newest song has a very different flair to the rest of the BONAMANA album. It presents Super Junior in a very cutesy way, in an innocent atmosphere. This directly contrasts with the title song of the album, BONAMANA, and other popular songs like BOOM BOOM. It shows that whilst the boys can be complete sexy bad boys, they also have a huge heart and an allowance for romance. The film clip is without shadows, black, and eyeliner, instead they’re dressed in whites and pastels with huge smiles.

Their new album and current 10 members allows the audience to hear longer verses from several different members. BONAMANA has introduced members like Heechul to more singing opportunities, and the return of raps from member Eunhyuk. However, this increase in verses has not been very kind to member, Sungmin. Sungmin is considered one of the three power singers of the group (including Yesung and Ryeowook), however, his solos are few and far between, and are usually forfeited to seemingly more popular member, Kyuhyun. And whilst I do love Kyuhyun, I hate that Sungmin, who is a wonderful singer, has the same singing time as members like Siwon and Heechul.

No Other, somehow reminds me of a song that should have come from their first album. I find it to be hugely westernised and reminiscent of past American boy bands. To be honest, I don’t really like the song. I was hooked to the new BONAMANA concept where the boys did their bad boy smirks, thrust their hips, and showed a lot more skin… and No Other? Meh. I’m sure after a while it will draw me in because I truly love Super Junior… but until then I’ll think that it’s an average song from an amazing album.

So, here it is. Super Junior’s No Other:
