Girls vs Boys- K-pop

This week I thought I'd do another K-pop Girls vs Boys post. It's between Korean girl group SISTAR and Korean/Chinese boyband EXO.


I did a post on EXO in April, which you can read here: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/weekly-music-video_30.html

This is the video for Mama, their debut single which was released in April 2013. This is EXO-K's version and it's in Korean. :)

And here is EXO-M's version (Chinese): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPJBe5eWbQc



SISTAR are a 4 member group who debuted in June 2010 with the song Push Push. The members are Hyolyn (real name Kim Hyo Jung), Bora (full name Yoon Bora), Soyou (real name Kang Ji Hyun) and Dasom (full name Kim Dasom).* Their debut album So Cool was released in 2011.

SISTAR took a break after the album release, returning in spring 2012 with their 1st mini album Alone and debuting a new style of music. The group went on to release a 2nd mini album in summer 2012 and their 2nd studio album Give It To Me in June last year. They are set to bring out a new mini album next month.

In 2011, two of SISTAR's members (lead singer Hyolyn and rapper Bora) branched off to form their own subgroup SISTAR19. Hyolyn also has a solo career and all the girls have appeared on TV, whether as actresses or on reality shows.

This is the video for Alone, which was released as a single in April 2012. I first heard it the other week as part of my 1000 Songs challenge.

*Korean names are written with the surname first.

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/09/unexpected.html

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here; https://www.instagram.com/p/BpzfLAjg8ek/

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme: https://starcasm.net/unexpected-producers-casting-pregnant-teens-from-same-high-school-or-tap-program-for-new-reality-series/

Unexpected

23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.


S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…

Top 10 True Movies

I like watching films based on true stories. I used to watch them occasionally as a child and teen but I started watching them more after the True Movies channels (True Movies 1 and True Movies 2) launched on Sky 11 years ago. It seems weird that it's been so long, lol. I usually watch the films on those channels (or True Entertainment) but I also sometimes watch them on Lifetime or other channels. (I think a lot of these are Lifetime original movies but we didn't get the Lifetime channel in the UK until late 2013).

I thought that today I'd share my Top 10 True Movies. :)


Trigger warning:

Most of the films are based on crimes (often murder or abuse) and I realise these are difficult subjects, so read with caution if you're sensitive to these type of films.
