New J-pop and K-pop Releases

Sorry the post is late this week; I planned to post yesterday but wasn't feeling well. :)

Today I thought I'd share some new J-pop and K-pop songs/videos.

First up one of my favourite Japanese singers Namie Amuro has a new single called Hero. It's for the Olympics, it's the theme song for the Japanese broadcast. Seems weird that it's 4 years since the last Olympics in London!

This is a nice song. :) The video is the short version (just over 2 minutes).

Namie also has another video for the song Show Me What You've Got (from the Hero single). Unfortunately they won't show it on her YouTube channel; they sometimes make them unavailable for certain countries. They do have it on DailyMotion though, so if you can't view it in your country check it out here:

And then Korean American rapper/singer Jay Park has a new single with Korean rapper Ugly Duck called Ain't No Party Like an AOMG Party. (AOMG is their record label). It's on Jay's EP $cene $tealers (Scene Stealers) which is out now.

He also has a new song called I Don't Disappoint which is from his upcoming Everything You Wanted EP. This is just an audio and is my favourite out of the two songs.

Both songs are explicit. :)

Do you like the new songs?

P.S. I'm planning to do a post on C-pop (Chinese pop) because I haven't posted much about that so far. So look out for that. :)

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)

The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Moms- Chloe Update

Series/Season 7 of American reality show Dance Moms is currently showing in the UK and I recently heard that one of the original dancers Chloe Lukasiak will be returning for the finale.

Chloe and her mum Christi weren't liked by the dance teacher and studio owner Abby Lee Miller and Christi often clashed with Abby. They left at the end of Series 4. Abby treated Chloe horribly in my opinion, once referring to her as "that girl over there" instead of her name. I always disliked the way Abby punishes the girls if she falls out with their mothers. Also Abby seemed to want to Chloe to fail in competitions, which was weird because she was one of her students representing her!! I think she just wants to be proven right a lot of the time. Chloe was my favourite out of the original girls (Chloe, Maddie, Nia, Mackenzie, Brooke  ans Paige, although Kendall joined quite early on) and I was glad for her when she finally left because she didn't have to put up with being treated li…

Christmas Round-up

In October I did a Hallowe'en round-up post. Since today is Christmas Eve I thought it would be cool to do a Christmas round-up. :)

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis (Narnia)

This is the 2nd book in the fantasy children's series The Chronicles of Narnia. Originally published in 1950, it's become a kid's classic. The series is about the magical land of Narnia which is actually meant to be Heaven. It's ruled over by the great lion Aslan (who is like Jesus). But if you're not religious (like me) it's still an entertaining story.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is about siblings Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie who are evacuated from London to the country during the Blitz. They go to stay with Professor Kirke who lives alone apart from his housekeeper Mrs. Macready. While looking round the house the youngest girl Lucy discovers an entrance to Narnia in the back of a wardrobe. She comes out in a snowy…
