K.A.R.D Debut Mini Album

Korean group K.A.R.D have released their debut mini album, entitled KARD 1st Mini Album Hola Hola. It came out on 19th July and contains 6 tracks- Oh NaNa featuring "hidden member" Heo Young-Ji, Don't Recall, RUMOR, Hola Hola, (Korean title) I Can't Stop and Living Good (Special Thanks To).

Oh NaNa was released last December as K.A.R.D's first project single, a pre-debut. Don't Recall followed in February and the English language "Hidden Version" at the beginning of March. The group released their thid and last project single RUMOR in April. Hola Hola ("Hello Hello" in Spanish) is the first single from the mini album and both came out on the same day.

My favourite song from Hola Hola is Don't Recall. I like both the Korean and English versions. I bought the English one a little while ago and might buy the Korean one as well. I like Oh NaNa too. I Hola Hola sounds similar to Oh NaNa, especially because they sing that phrase in it, but I do like it. :) RUMOR isn't one of my favourites but has a good chorus. I just heard I Can't Stop for the first time (I can't read the Korean title but according to Wikipedia it says "naneun meomchuji anhneuna"( and Living Good for the first time today and my fave one of those two is I Can't Stop. In fact I just bought it! :)



Here's the video for Oh NaNa:

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 Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)


First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.



So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
