Weekly music video

Hope everyone had a great Christmas! :)

I've now decided to have a weekly music video rather than the random one, so I'll post them more often. This week there's more than one video and they are by the Korean group Dong Bang Shin Ki.  In Japan they're known as Tohoshinki (I first heard of them as Tohoshinki) and they're also called TVXQ (Tong Vfang Xien Qi) which is Chinese. Plus fans also call them DBSK (short for Dong Bang Shin Ki). So it's a bit confusing really! lol. Their name translates as "The Rising Gods of the East". The group started off with 5 members, U-know ( his stage name) Yunho, Max Changmin, Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu. They formed in 2003 and were successful but in 2009 they stopped performing due to problems with their Korean agency SM Entertainment. They returned in 2010 as 3 piece JYJ consisting of Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu to perform at a concert but now they are a duo (U-know Yunho and Max Changmin). A bit like Sugababes' line-up changes, except in this case they didn't keep bringing in new members!

This is the video for their 2008 single Mirotic/Jumon: Mirotic (the Japanese version), one of my favourite Tohoshinki songs. I think the first video is the Korean version and the second one is Japanese but please correct me if I'm wrong! I've got the Japanese version.


Mirotic- Korean version

Mirotic- Japanese version


One of my favourite singers Sarah Connor has a song called Under My Skin which is similar to this. So here's the video for that as well:

Sarah Connor- Under My Skin

I'll do another post on Sarah later. :)

Note: Even though it says I published this on the 21st, I actually posted it today, that's why I wrote that I hoped everyone had a good Christmas. Thought I should explain, lol.

Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Love Lies by  Khalid featuring Normani (from American girl group Fifth Harmony). Khalid (full name Khalid Donnell Robinson) is an American singer who started out by posting music to Soundcloud and then featured on Alina Baraz's single Electric in early 2016. He released his debut single Location in July 2016, which is one of his biggest hits to date. His debut album American Teen came out in March 2017.

Khalid's other singles include Young, Dumb & Broke. Love Lies and OTW with rappers/singers Ty Dolla $ign and 6LACK.

Love Lies was released on Valentine's Day (14th Feb) and is from soundtrack of  the American film Love, Simon. I've only seen the video in the last month though). It's the first single Normani has released outside of Fifth Harmony, who are currently on hiatus.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

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…
