Happy New Year 2021 around the World

A new year has begun. How are you doing?

I see what celebrations have been held in each country. This time, everyone broadcasted online because of the coronavirus.

Let’s watch it on YouTube!

There are New Zealand, Scotland, Australia, Berlin, Japan, Paris, Dubai, Thailand.

It’s so beautiful. I think I’ll be able to start the year with energy. Looking back on last year, did I live without regrets? At least I feel like I’m trying.

I am in my hometown, Korea these days. The country used drone technology to hold a commemorative event and it was so good. Scotland above also used drones, so I brought the Korean video.

Most of them responded well. They said it’s cool. It is a collaboration between Hyundai and BTS. Background music is “I’m on it – BTS” I also think it’s art…

I hope you make new plans for this year and be happy.

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

[Korean Culture] JTBC “Sing Again” (2020)

JTBC’s ‘Sing Again(싱어게인)’ offers forgotten singers a second chance.

Singers who are forgotten, standing alone after leaving a group for the first time, have failed to succeed despite their superb singing skills among others are given one more chance to appeal to the public on the show.

One of the interesting parts of the program is that contestants are called by their numbers, from one to 71, instead of their names.

In addition, there were many other unknown singers. Among them, there were many singers who enjoyed music and were good at it.

The song was so famous that the singer was forgotten, and there were many people who had their own stories.

I listen to the above 4 singers a lot these days. I hope you guys experience this music too.

SM girl group: AESPA “Black Mamba”

Aespa is a South Korean girl group formed by SM Entertainment, consisting of members Karina, Giselle, Winter and Ningning.

The group debuted on November 17, 2020, with the release of their debut single, “Black Mamba”.

Why are they called æspa?

Their name comes from combining ‘æ’ derived from ‘Avatar X Experience’ & ‘aspect’.

The meaning meaning behind the name is various innovative activities to come with the theme of ‘Experiencing a new world via the encounter of the ‘avatar’, your other self’.

One fan said “AESPA is AESPA. They’re not any other else. Instead, this is so SM. Superior Vocals quality, and Visuals. For this particular song, there is no fast Rap or too much swags. Its full of aesthetics, high quality effects, and A vocal dominant song. Amazing choreo which follows the song style.”

another fan said “the fact that all 4 of them are more than just average vocalists is insaine, can’t wait for giselle and karina to showcase more of their vocals! they sound really good in their pre-debute. what more after getting those vocal trainings.”

It is my morning routine to find my favorite song and start the day. 🙂

Inline Skating in Busan, Korea : I am a figure skater

There is another thing that is rapidly gaining popularity in Korea. Like the last posting, “feel the rhythm of Korea”, there are a lot of comments saying that Korean Tourism Organization should have to cast her quickly.

That figure skater (백수박: Baek Soobak, not real name) is also very pretty, but the camera moving is also highly praised.

The visual beauty is so good. Sometimes I get tired of COVID-19, but it’s healing.

In fact, this video became popular first. Why do you think it is? Because she is so pretty.. Also cutie..

There is a figure skater who can’t forget in Korea. I want to hear from Kim Yuna. Where and what will she do now?

She was a dream and hope for me, who was young.

I missed her, so I brought a video.

What do you miss? I think it would be nice to spend the day looking for it.

Refund Sisters “DON’T TOUCH ME” MV

Refund Sisters is a seasonal South Korean K-pop supergroup formed on the MBC variety show Hangout with Yoo. The group is a spin-off formed from SSAK3 – another supergroup – when Lee Hyori said during Hangout with Yoo that she wanted to form a ‘strong image’ girl group with Uhm Jung-hwa, Jessi, and Hwasa.

Each member was highlighted in their own unique color: Lee Hyori (Chun Ok) in orange, Uhm Jung Hwa in red, Hwasa in purple, and Jessi (Eun Bi) in pink.

Someone said “we need more collabs like that in kpop. not only the group: the interactions, the performances, etc are all amazing. i love all the girls and their careers, is nice to see that is a friendship between then.”

Another said “Jessi : no matter how much I age. I will still be better than them!! YES QUEENS!!!!!”

Others said “Jessi’s rap and that Hwasas stare and the power walk after that all just hits different…. I’ve rewatched that sooo many times already. Still can’t get over it.”

The October 31 episode of MBC’s “How Do You Play?” took the audience behind the scenes on the set of Refund Sisters’ music video for “Don’t Touch Me.”

It was such a happy moment as a fan. And there’s an article on the link below, which is a really good summary. If you can’t watch the MV because you’re busy, please read it as an article!

Refund Sisters “DON’T TOUCH ME” (Hangout with Yoo)

Unofficial MV “DON’T TOUCH ME”

Refund Sisters (Korean: 환불원정대) is the hottest project group in Korea these days.

The group is a spin-off formed from SSAK3 – another supergroup – when Lee Hyori said during Hangout with Yoo that she wanted to form a ‘strong image’ girl group with Uhm Jung-hwa, Jessi, and Hwasa.

Yoo Jae-seok, who is famous as the best MC in Korea, and PD Kim Tae-ho, who always comes up with fresh ideas, never disappoints us!

Choreography by AIKI

In particular, the new song “DON’T TOUCH ME” is gaining explosive popularity in Korea. As soon as the song was released, it topped various charts.

Why is Refund Sisters so popular?

  1. First of all, the song is good. Very attractive!
  2. They are in their 50s, 40s, 30s, and 20s, and they are the best female divas of their time.
  3. Jesse and Hwasa were originally popular with people in their 20s, but now they have a tremendous effect because Uhm Jung-hwa and Lee Hyo-ri have joined forces to capture the hearts of people in their 30s, 40s and 50s.

Many people fall into their memories and shed tears listening to their stories.

Debut Stage, Refund Sisters

To explain this song briefly, this song is about “STRONG Woman.”
Let me summarize the lyrics. “They say I’m trouble. They say I look fierce, so what? I’m dressing up, I’m getting stylish. yeah I’m lady, can’t stop me. Don’t touch me!! Even with the adding years, I’ll never fall back!”

Someone said “My lips can’t stop saying how beautiful Jung Hwa is. She is so beautiful.” Another said “Hwasa’s sultry voice is really shone through, her voice is so comfy to the ears.”

Official MV Teaser

When she was on stage, Lee changed her style and received rave reviews from many people. It’s so pretty and it’s not lagging behind the current singers.

However, some said it was regrettable that the camera moving and their outfit was too monotonous.

No official music video has been uploaded yet. I’m really looking forward to it.
Have a happy day!

Peace is up to you! Good luck :0

Feel the Rhythm of Korea, LEENALCHI “Tiger is coming”

Enjoy wonderful attractions of South Korea with a lively, rhythmic sound!

Korean Tourism Organization collaborated with an alternative pop band ‘LEENALCHI’ and ‘Ambiguous Dance Company’.
Feel the rhythm of Korea with the music that is based on a traditional Korean folk tale and wonderful dance.

Three videos are reaching over 60 million views! It’s really fun and addictive.

Someone said “Initially found the songs weird but then it became weirdly attractive to listen to. And now it’s an ear worm!” Wow.. olalla

Lyrics are here
“A tiger is coming down, a tiger is coming
A beast is coming down through the deep valley in the pine woods”

I can’t write the full text because of copyright, but there’s a comment in this clip that’s been translated incredibly well. He hit the rhyme!

LEENALCHI is an alternative pop band comprised of four traditional vocalists, a drummer, and two bassists, delivering musical storytelling through solos, choir, rapping and dance.

Particularly, Jang Young-gyu, basist, scored the films “Gokseong” and “Train to Busan.” It’s famous!

“We all sort of know what pansori is. But at the same time we are not at all familiar with it. Very few people enjoy the music…. So what now? We thought it is our job to make the traditional music sound simply like popular music, not pansori,” Jang added.

Have a good day! I want to introduce you ‘Korean Culture’ more!

Peace is up to you 🙂 Good luck!

I Live Alone: Girl’s Secret Party 2020 (Spicy)

What I want to say first is that it’s really funny!

But the clothes and makeup are so powerful that you need to be a little careful. It’s really funny if you keep looking!

The three long members of “Home Alone”, one of the best MBC’s variety show, gather again! Girls’ secret party received explosive responses from viewers last fall and now it begins once more by Han Hye Jin’s call-up.

Expectations are high on what kind of different joy girls will present this time. A special home party at “Na Rae Bar” to celebrate Park Na Rae’s birthday! We invite you to this fun and unique party! (Source: Viki)

There is an organization called Korea Communications Standards Commission (KCSC) in Korea, so it is not too stimulating. However, this program is spicy because it only broadcasts on YouTube. I think that’s why they’re more popular.

Someone said “can’t stop laughing the whole episode!! LOL! they’re hilarious.. Georgina, Samantha, Maria… this is the secret party!”

I hope you’re happy to see this today. 🙂

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

[Korean Culture] Fashion Designer ‘Milanonna’ YouTube Channel

Jang Myung-suk, a 68-year-old fashion youtuber Milanonna who is emerging as a 2030 role model.
This is the first woman from Korea to go to Milan, Italy, and has been a fashion designer and cultural coordinator between Korea and Milan for over 40 years.

She said “I like challenges, and YouTube became one.”

She did not plan on launching a YouTube channel until personnel from Naver suggested on doing so.

“I had a keen relationship with my grandmother,” she said. “That is why I named my channel mila_no_nna, short for Milano nonna – nonna meaning grandmother. I hope people watch my video comfortably as if listening to stories from their grandmother.”

“I once commented that I do not want people’s clicks on my videos to be in vain,” she said.
“By disclosing stories about my life, I hope people will feel comforted, regain hope, laugh, and for those who are interested, learn more about Europe.”
