소녀시대 아저씨. 아저씨.
 
Girls' Generation 2014 title track Mr. Mr. Was a hot mess full of MV delays, data corruption and album leaks. The hype surrounding the release was evident and it only grew when every obstacle possible construed was thrown in it's path. This eventually lead to the delay of the track's release but that didn't stop it from being yet another massive hit, gathering 9 music show broadcast wins in it's short promotion cycle.
 
The teaser video was released on our Shikshin's birthday. It promised us nine moody angels hanging around what seemed to be an abandoned hospital. Just your casual Sunday.
 
Although they were dressed in hospital gear holding all sorts of paraphernalia, the teaser video was full of on-screen static and interference. Obviously SM was trying to send us a message but we didn't heed it. They were trying to tell us to expect  the same amount of static and interference in the full-length music video as well.
 
Then came the onslaught of management slip-up after slip-up. The complete music video now with extra re-shot footage to compensate for the data lost by SM was released a full 18 days after the teaser video. If I correctly recall, the teaser video amassed about 3-4 million views in anticipation of the music video.
 
The final product although entertaining fell short of several expectations. The patch up work was obvious and a little bit of a disappointment. But every cloud has a silver lining, Mr. Mr.'s being Yuri's hair and the ensuing avalanche of memes, even some by her own members, *wink*Lion King*wink*!
 
This unusual music video can only call for an equally unusual review
 


cr: SMTOWN@yt


General stuff
 
-SM's love story with lens flares continues in this MV.
-Surprisingly no Genie or Everysing ad.
 
In detail
 
-Taeyeon not looking 24.
-Seohyun solving a rubik's cube. #SeoJuHyunForPresident
-Sunny slaying her first line. Her voice in this track is like effing opium. She has my favourite parts in this track. Maeil haruga dareuge buranhaejyeo ga
-Yoona rocking that side ponytail. Nugungaga
-Jessica's eyeliner! *no words*
-All I can focus on is Yoona
-Taeyeon not looking 24, again.
-Hyoyeon leaving the parking lot like a bau5.
-Jessica. Jawline. *no words*
-Stop Tiffany. Just stahp. Mr. inji [Pause at 1:39 if you do not suffer from a heart condition]
-Sunny slaying it, again. Mirael yeoneun yeolsoe baro niga gajin heol
-Yuri's My mi, mi, mister rock this world  leading up to that head-bob and group V-formation.
-Sunny at 2:12. Just pause it there. Qt. [Serious feels for Sunny & Tiffany in this MV. I don't know why?]
-That Hwang Miyoung. She is so versatile in the visual department. In this MV alone, she portrays so many different looks and concepts. The pink cocktail dress look, the fringe (bangs) look, the side parted Mr. inji look, the fedora look and the black & white dress look. That's 5 different looks (she looks different to me in them).
-OK here we go, dance break!
-Which lasts for a total of 7 seconds out of the 19 allotted for it. But I don't mind this. It just makes me want to watch the live performances even more. You know Hyoyeon is slaying it.
-Sooyoung's button nose is all I can see. God damn lens flare almost blocked her face!
-Paparazzi moment. Walk like you own the place. [PS. Tiffany defying the laws of physics #melons]
-That lucky ahjussi waking up.
-Those god damn outfits. And wait who are those people sitting on the floor.
-Wait what? Back-up dancers?
-Wait what? That's Seohyun, Tiffany and Taeyeon by themselves in the centre. TTS? Comeback?
-End pose. From left to right : Sunny, Sooyoung, Hyoyeon, Seohyun, Taeyeon, Tiffany, Jessica, Yoona, Yuri
-The Mr.Mr. pulse. While mine is flat-lining.
 
There are a lot of solo shots in this MV [YAY!] which are ruined [NO!] because of lens flare.
 
Frankly, I'd love this track even more if they had named it AhjussiAhjussi.
 
The MV is amazing. There wasn't any deviation from the teaser video. Literally none; static, interference, et al.

Girls' Generation TTS – Holler

 

Holler

TTS's second title track is a regular SM hook track. Ever since the overwhelming success of Super Junior's Sorry Sorry and Girls' Generation's very own Gee, SM Entertainment has stuck to a staple diet of employing hook songs for it's idol groups title tracks. Holler is dominated by short repetitive trumpet sounds and a little bit of drum work towards the end. The track progresses from verse to chorus at a medium tempo. As for the vocals, TTS does a good job with Taeyeon leading Seohyun and Tiffany. Although one aspect of the track felt unneccessary, namely Tiffany's rap. All in all, Holler is well executed although not addictive at first, it tends to grow on you. The “Holler, Holler, Holler” successfully beckons the listener, making them play the track over and over again.

 

 

Adrenaline

Adrenaline is an upbeat track that uses clap sounds and drums as it's base and eases into an cheerful chorus. Adrenaline also employs the same “Adrenaline, Adrenaline, Adrenaline” as Holler used with its' “Holler, Holler, Holler” adding a hype factor to the track as it pumps the listener up. I would have preferred to have Adrenaline as TTS' title track as both Adrenaline and Holler fit SM's criteria of being hook songs but Adrenaline is more upbeat and cheerful.

 

 

Whisper

TTS's pre-release track deserved the all-kill status it achieved, topping several domestic online music charts. Whisper is distinctly different from the other offerings on the Holler EP. It's slow lazy beat coaxes you into a fluffy embrace as the soft sweet chorus envelopes you. Whisper is a sweet pleasure one would listen to on a rainy evening while fondly remembering a past relationship.

 

 

Stay

Stay starts of with a piano arrangement and eases into beats with the piano as it's base. It's equally as upbeat and cheerful as Adrenaline although they exude different auras. Tiffany's marked improvement is evident in her parts scattered around the track, especially her solo right before the last chorus. Even her rap part was well sung and unlike in Holler, it fit into the track. The “Oh oh oh oh” is a sweet sugary coating on an upbeat cheerful chorus. Stay is the perfect track to sing along to on a long drive during the summer.

 

 

Only U

Only U also uses a piano arrangement as it's base but it's very different from Adrenaline. Only U reminds me of All My Love For You. It's sharp and graceful with gentle vocals. Seohyun, the epitome of grace and femininity, deservedly penned the lyrics to this track, my favourite line being from the chorus;

Even if pain from the faded past comes (Baraejin gieoge apeumi ondaedo)

I will always tell you my heart that only beats toward you (Eonjena neoegeman ttwineun nae maeumeul jeonhae jul geoya)”

Only U is a gracefully executed track with fitting lyrics that display TTS's vocal style.

 

 

EYES

EYES is the track that I like the most from this EP. Although a little reminiscent of Ariana Grande's Problem.The brass sections are dominant but not intrusive. The different melodies are backed with TTS's entire range of vocal techniques. Taeyeon's bridge serves as a figurative bridge between Tiffany's husky muscular vocals and Seohyun's high range parts. They combine very well to turn it into an enjoyable gorgeous track.

 

 

 

The 2nd EP is well produced that not only displays the sub-unit's vocal prowess but also successfully incorporates suitable arrangement into each track; something Twinkle couldn't manage, depending too much on TTS' vocals. Holler makes full use of TTS's vocal style and range, melding each member's individual colour into a beautiful canvas. I genuinely enjoyed the EP.

Caught GG

 

 

On August 24th, 2014, SMTOWN released Girls' Generation's universal hashtag through their official YouTube channel, urging SONEs worldwide to #catchGG in what I personally perceive as a very clever diss to professional sasaeng agencies such as Dispatch who claim themselves to be media outlets when in fact their "reporters" are known to invade the privacy of South Korea's dearest, whether it's in the country (our girls) or in another continent (the recent Suzy-LMH).

 

 

 

 

229 days and one unfortunate event later, Girls' Generation unveiled their prized catch. Too little, too late? Not in my opinion.

 

 

 

 

From the teaser video itself, it was evident that Catch Me If You Can would be an EDM-centric track. This has by far been Girls' Generation's most successful attempt at EDM incorporation. 

 

 

Crisp synths to complement a steady bass-induced background beat with grungier offbeats thrown in between to differentiate each member's part. Then a complete 180 degree turn in the arrangement gives us a calmer smooth entry into the chorus, but not before it raises it's tempo in anticipation for the chorus to kick in.

As previously mentioned, this is an EDM-centric track; therefore I don't mind the fact that the chorus has very very few lines in it. In fact, I applaud SM for trying this new technique and I find it perfectly suitable for an EDM-centric track. The chorus is an energetic mix of beats and synths, preparing the audience's heartbeat for the ensuing chase. If the chorus were to have the standard amount of lines in it, the track would lose it's focus and drift away from the EDM theme that it's trying to achieve.

 

 

 

 

As far as the choreography goes, I don't know whether it's BEATBURGER, ex-idol current-SM-choreo-ring-leader Shim Jaewon, or gold old Rino Nakasone that I have to thank. The choreography is everything that was missing from Mr. Mr.

 

 

The movements are crisp like the synths, fast and pump the atmosphere up. SM choreographies are always on point but CMIYC impressed me from the get go. Whoever thought of putting Sunny, Tiffany, Yoona and Seohyun to writhe on the floor while Sooyoung gets some much-overdue vocal-time is a genius. Yoona looks ethereal as she slays that first step in the chorus, making me want to rob the nearest bank while at the same time giving me a legitimate reason to fly to South Korea and stand outside SM's Gangnam-gu office, waiting for her. What more impetus do I need if Yoona herself is asking me to catch her if I can?!

The choreography during Sooyoung's part straight after the first chorus is ridiculously brilliant as all the members shuffle in a perfect synchronised fashion. Practice really does make perfect. Yuri hairflips are more than welcome, but first I must wipe the puddle of drool forming near my keyboard.

 

 

The camera work is bang on point. I would like to thank SM for not putting in any unnecessary lens-flares and pop-up ads in this music video. The camera movement from group shots to steady zoom and pans for member shots are perfect. The decreased number of cut-to's and solo shots need to be applauded because that gives us a chance to admire the flawless choreography in all it's grandeur. I like how they used something inanely off-point and luxurious as hiring a goddamn helicopter to transition between the day and night scenes. It's a clean use of the bottomless coffers that is SM's bank balance. After all, only SM would hire a helicopter to fly over the MV/PV location site for a mere 2 second appearance so that they can transition between shots. Don't forget, the helicopter had to fly over the MV site once during the day and once during the night to successfully shoot and have it edited to show the transition. Why such a luxurious expense? Because SM can and Girls' Generation will always warrant this amount of respect as their biggest girl-group cash cow.

 

 

The styling and visuals for SM produced MVs are expectedly gorgeous. Whether it's the mid-riff baring crop top and cargo pants combination or the nosebleed-inducing unrealistic construction worker uniform, Girls' Generation showcase why they are considered idol royalty. My personal favourite is the unrealistic construction worker uniforms, because glorious legs 0.0

 

 

In terms of vocals, there seems to be a much welcomed equal distribution of parts between the members. My favourite lyrics being Taeyeon's power-packed delivery of

"Look at me, shining on you more hotly than the sun / 태양보다 뜨겁게 널 비추는 나를 봐 / Taeyangboda tteugeopge neol bichunuen nareul bwa"

 

 

My complaints with the MV/PV:

  • The starting 23 seconds. Unnecessary, especially when you're having them slay/dance on a construction site for the remainder of the music video.
  • Not enough screen time for Seohyun. She looks stunning as of late but I couldn't see much of her.
  • The time taken; 229 days(!), for them to deliver a music video for them all the #catchGG hoopla SM created.
  • Unrealistic expectation setting for construction workers to look this hot.

 

Although, as far as Japanese releases go; this track has a lot to answer for. Girls' Generation's Japanese tracks hold a special place in my heart as it was FLOWER POWER that compelled me to step into this world. If compared to other tracks that don't even have a music video such as Reflection, The Great Escape, Karma Butterfly, etc., Catch Me If You Can doesn't meet my, admittedly high, expectations.

 

 

All in all; it's GG's most solid delivery at an EDM-centric track. The visuals and choreography are breathtaking. The music video should be watched from the 24th second onwards.

I loved the in-depth analysis of not only the musical and artistic delivery but also the environmental factors to which that CMIYC was released; I found myself basically agreeing with everything you said (probably because I come from the background of bias).  Loved your way of expressing your opinions as well.

 

Hoping to see more reviews from you soon.

Dancing to your own rhythm

 

News of Tiffany’s debut solo did not come as a shock to SONEs or the KPop community. SM had already unveiled numerous solo acts from ShinEE’s Taemin and Jonghyun, to SNSD’s very own Taeyeon. A “leaked document” further proved the rumours that Tiffany was to be given a solo debut of her own. Now as far as previous attempts made by SM go, the acts listed above enjoyed their fair share of public recognition and popularity. Each of tracks released won top spot at a live music broadcast atleast, fared well on digital rankings, and the songs were well produced and arranged.

 

 

 

 

Tiffany who previously mesmerised us with a rendition of Ariana Grande’s The Way, has done it again with I Just Wanna Dance. The MV teaser didn’t let out any clues to what the song would sound like but did give us a glimpse into the concept of the MV. A slow flurry of images attack the viewer with little to none exposed about the track. Big City skyline, Tiffany seated by herself in a diner, eyes slowly closing, footprints in the sand. This dreamy sequence of events lays the foundation for an inspiring concept that has been visualised for I Just Wanna Dance.

 

The MV starts out with a big city skyline reflected on to itself. The Black and Red meant to be in contrast to each other. Not the normal Black and White, but interestingly enough Black and Red. Tiffany strolls into an ordinary diner. It’s almost as if Tiffany has been feeling worn out as a singer. Just looking for a moment to close her eyes and breathe, she sets off for anywhere that is far away from South Korea. An echo in the distance makes way for the catchy synth beats that will go on to set the framework of the entire track. Finally the song materialises into existence.

 

 

 

 

She sits herself down in a booth, and closes her eyes for a second. A breather away from the public eye. A chance to catch up with herself. The colours change from black to red and the diner is now empty except for our lead character. SM have done a good job of incorporating scenery and images that reflect Tiffany’s path to stardom till now.

 

며칠째 내린 비가 그친

I feel good”

 

“It’s been raining for a few days and it finally stopped tonight

I feel good”

 

The juxtaposition of Black and Red instead of the normal Black and White speak volumes of the unconventional path a young Stephanie from Diamond Bar, LA had to take. Having lost her mother at a young age and father who wouldn’t let his daughter travel across the world to find herself in South Korea, like the unconventional Black and Red.

 

After debuting with SNSD and reaching the heights of popularity that they achieved, it all came at a price. Constantly in the public eye, every single move of hers picked at and taken apart, dissected and commented upon by those who call themselves “Industry Specialists” and “Esteemed Journalists”. Amidst the fame and good fortune showered upon her, Tiffany was hardly ever given the chance to be herself, to dance like nobody was watching her. But even in this hurricane Tiffany enjoyed the ride.

 

  

  한편의 쇼가 끝난 후에

무대 같은 도시

It’s alright It’s alright

젖은 공기 속으로

비추는 가로등

좋아 몸이 움직여

 

I just wanna dance the night away

눈을 감고 dance in the moonlight

점점 달아올라 뜨겁게

나도 멈출 없어 No way”

    

“The city is like an empty stage

After a show ends

It’s alright It’s alright

Into the wet air

The street lights shine on me

I like it, my body is moving

 

I just wanna dance the night away

As I close my eyes dance in the moonlight

It’s getting hotter

I can’t stop myself, no way”

 

Now reborn as a rookie solo artist, Tiffany has to find herself again in this maze called the KPop Industry. However, after having experienced the view from the top, she takes this opportunity to release any inhibitions she had before. Tiffany wants to dance like nobody is watching her.

 

아주 슬픈 영화에 취한 보다

지금 헝클어지고 싶을 뿐이야

 

“I wanna get more messed up

Than being immersed in a very sad movie”

 

Although some unfortunate events unfolded a couple of years ago, the track accepts it as part of life. The ups and downs that happen to many a people. But rather than over-analysing it, she wants to move on. Take the pain and sorrow, and learn from the experience. She wants to continue living in the present rather than thinking too much about the past.

 

하루하루 바꿔 쓰는

가면들 속에 나를 숨겼어

지금 솔직해지고

싶은 것뿐이야

 

“I hid myself behind the masks

that change every day

I just wanna

get more honest right now”

 

This speaks volumes of the shy teenager from 2009 to the social butterfly that she has now become. Through all the comments and criticism she received even Tiffany couldn’t handle it sometimes, choosing to hide behind ever-changing masks. But now she is ready to take on the world.

 

While others might see this as a catchy electro-pop song with gorgeous eye-candy and smooth vocals, I see more as an anthem for the current generation. An inspiring song that lays everything out in the open. At a time where everything we do is subject to interrogation, whether it is by our peers or parents, Tiffany tells it like it. She says it’s all right, it’s okay. All you need to do is you’re your rhythm and dance to it. Someone once said ‘Music is food for the soul’ and I think Tiffany has done just that with this release. She lay her feelings bare for everyone to see and inspect, but in the end she doesn’t need anyone’s validation to tell her if what she did was right or wrong.

 

She just wants to enjoy herself from now onwards, dance to the rhythm. She just wants to dance the night away.

Flight Plan

 

Jessica finally made her solo debut with the release of “Fly”, a pleasant mid-tempo pop song that wisely used minimalistic beats to make sure Jessica’s signature high-pitched sweet voice was given free rein to carry the song. The chorus is catchy and Jessica’s adlibs in the background mesh well with the rest of the track.
 

 

 
 
Mainly produced by, what I can only imagine is Coridel’s new in-house composer, veteran KMack the track undoubtedly has his American pop feel to it. He made the wise decision of using an arrangement that would complement Jessica’s range rather than clash with it. Even rapper Fabulous’ part goes well with the song, not breaking the flow or taking any attention away from the song, but instead lending a helping hand with well-written lyrics that even go as far as linking her San Francisco roots with mentions of SF’s very own Golden State Warriors and their point guard Stephen Curry.
 
The MV is aesthetically shot with beautiful wide shots of the location and colourful elements of the locale providing juxtaposition to the barren desert. It starts begins from where the teasers left off at; Jessica lying in a bathtub in the middle of a desert, pondering over a postcard. The visuals certainly deliver the message of this track. Every once in a while we find ourselves alone and lost, through no major fault of our own. Even though we’ve made provisions for our future, life doesn’t always go according to plan. Our goals keep changing, especially after we’ve already achieved the ones we set for our self long ago. It’s about pursuing our dreams, rather than following someone else’s vision of how your life should pan out.
 
 

 
 
Thrown into the barren dry desert that is the world of KPop at a young age, she still stuck to the daily routine trying to adapt to this change in environment. Even though she yearned for cooler climates where snow was abundant and the scenery was caked in white, she still persevered and did her time in the desert, trying her best to fit in. But suddenly her life turns upside down on it’s head, and now that she’s had enough, it is time to pack her bags and head off to the place where she wants to be, doing the things that she wants to do. On her way out she receives a snowglobe from her younger self, reminding her to choose her own path rather be a slave to someone else’s.
 
The song and rap fit perfectly together because the main theme, self-empowerment, is continued with no hindrance to the flow or lyrics. I may be biased as an old OT9er, but I felt proud of Jessica after finishing the MV. She’s been through hell and back with everything that happened, but she’s come out of it with a certain clarity to her actions. She always had a plan in mind, constantly rechecking the postcard the postcard that I assumed she sent to herself. But various things like previous commitments, self-doubt and fear of failure held her back.
 
“Fly” is everything Jessica personifies right now, and she encourages everyone to follow their own path as well. Doubt, failure, and loss only hold you back, but if you don’t spread your wings and take flight, you will be left wondering of what could have been.

Love You The Same
 
Jessica’s choice of song for her second MV, while in my opinion not the strongest candidate out of her album, is the dreamy “Love Me The Same”.
 

 
I’m not interested in going too deep into the MV and it’s 'supposed meaning', but rather focus on the track. A calm piano arrangement sets the tone for the track. Once again Jessica’s voice is given the chance to shine as the listener doesn’t have to deal with any heavy elements in the background to focus on. Only a soothing steady drum beat that compliments her sweet voice.
 
The beautifully written lyrics have a bittersweet feeling to it as Jessica keeps asking

 

"시간이 흘러 힘겨워지면

Then baby Ooh would you love me the same

세상에 오직 둘뿐이라면 그때도

Ooh would you love me the same"

 


"When time goes by and things get hard

Then baby Ooh would you love me the same

If there’s only the two of us in the world, even then

Ooh would you love me the same"


 
All in all I love the slow steady pace of this track, the cute MV visuals, simple choreography, and touching lyrics. The only thing I can’t wrap my head around is the long interlude between the second chorus and the last verse. Still not sure what purpose it is meant to serve? Is this piano solo meant to give the listener time to look back at their own troubled relationship and ask themselves Would he/she still love me the same?
 
I would recommend this track to anyone having second thoughts in a relationship with their significant other. Rather than calling it a break-up song, it's a song that reaffirms the faith one has in their loved one. It definitely mirrors any doubts Jessica had as to whether or not her fans still loved her the same way now compared to before.
 
Yes Jessica; no matter what, we would still love you the same.

Hip-Pop Hotel

SM Station’s latest release can be taken as a continuation of Tiffany’s foray into the solo scene. With AOMG’s Simon Dominic featuring in it I expected an RnB/Hip-Hop song but was pleased to find that it’s in fact a crossover between Tiffany’s favourite genre Mainstream Pop and AOMG’s signature RnB/Hip-Hop.

 

This further solidifies SM Entertainment’s intentions to give their artists more freedom in pursuing their passion while underlining SM Station’s original intentions in big bold letters, which is dabbling with crossovers. With the current roster overflowing, talent like BoA, Bada, GG backed up, and TVXQ + SJ members to still come out of military conscription, SM has a lot on their plate. But they are doing a good job of balancing things out and taking care of their artists.

 

 

 

 

I’m a big fan of the chime sounds that set the track off. Tiffany’s been allowed to maintain her mid-range vocals, with the occasional piano undertones mixed around the repetitive clap beat which gives the entire track a crossover Hip-Pop feel. The slow piano and chimes representing the Hip-Hop/RnB pat of the track, and the regular clap beat representing the Mainstream Pop genre that Tiffany proudly fangirled about to none other than Park Jin-Young of JYP fame on a recent episode of KBS’ Sister Slam Dunk.

 

The soothing chorus is crisply delivered and the English lyrics of the track blend in well, something that is difficult to accomplish in most KPop songs. Simon D’s rap is well-executed, I wouldn’t expect anything less from a veteran like him. In the spirit of SM Station’s crossover theme, the track is a smooth continuation from Pop to Hip-Hop and then back again. Tiffany’s growth as a vocal powerhouse in the low- to mid-ranges is evident in this release. She has managed to toe the line between the two without taking any undue attention away from the track. She has found her range, and has the good sense to stick to it. The ad-libs were pleasant to hear and the track in general is a bittersweet earworm. It’s difficult to get Tiffany’s soft “Heartbreak Hotel” line out of one’s head after just one listen.

 

With a voice like hers, it’s tough to imagine the fool that would break her heart.

<<<  His IVE bias is, . . . wait for it, . . .

<<<  That other k-pop media reporting on non-K-Pop news is getting ridiculous to the point it's trying to use the news as some sort of fodder with commenters jumping to insane conclusions.  Any criminal news is suppose to generate a sense of patience to get the "FULL STORY" by letting the police do their investigations into the case.  Who knows is the victim is truly the victim???  Who know the assaulters are being reactionary from being victims themselves of some elaborate plot and they're taking revenge so stupidly???  It is best to wait for further information when available in order to have a better understanding what happened, why, and what can be done to prevent it from happening again.  That other and that one k-pop media needs to stop reporting non-K-Pop News because they don't have all of the FACTS!  And these commenters jumping to these insane conclusions need therapy and ask themselves if they are truly fine throwing innocent people into jail on a whim.

<<<  His Street Woman Fighter bias is, . . . wait for it, . . . "all of them."  ^_^  While again, tattoos have their meanings both good and bad, and usefulness to identify a person, being in accessory advertisement is a mixed bag of reactions.  Whilst it is the point to highlight the product as the primary focus, it can't really deny the model whose wearing it.  Unfortunately, again, the former is more ideal and a point that they're about the product, not the tattoo, which happens to be a form of product from someone else, truth be told.  It's quite understandable there's a strong connection to tattoos, nobody is arguing this, and not all tattoos are bad, but from a business stand point, there are indeed good reasons as to why tattoos are not highlighted as much when it comes to certain businesses in the entertainment industry.  Again, we sincerely hope Monika is learning all of the aspects to understand why some things are the way they are.  It's best not to dumb society down, otherwise, people will just end up hurting each other over the dumbest things EVER!  Reminds me of that Idiocracy movie.  >_<

<<<  His Everglow bias is, . . . wait for it, . . . "all of them."  ^_^  The case of mysterious corset is underway.  ^_^  Pirates?  Hmmm.  It would fit.  But, if the custom piece is somehow legally protected, copyrighted/trademarked, they have an interesting case.  Examining both pieces do have noticeable slight differences between them, however, if other circumstances are uncovered, such as Jolin Tsai giving them permission to use it that ended up with a few minor changes, then they don't have a case whatsoever.  We just have to wait patiently to find out where this goes.  As being part of the audience, we don't really mind because of the ancient wisdom, . . . "Clothing is optional for beautiful women."  ^_^  <<<  Innocent!  ^.^  Plus, there's been so many insistences where many K-Pop Artists ended up wearing the same exact fashions for decades now.  Anyone else agree on how insane weaponizing plagiarism can be yet?

@  Emperor Ryu (06:50:11 AM)

<<<  That one k-pop media completely ignored T-ara, who has literally 6 leaders.  There was a 24 member girl group to be all leaders, and practically called themselves "Leader'S".  DIA has 2 leaders, Seunghee and Huihyeon.  Jewelry had 2 leaders too, JungAh and Eunjung.  Kara had 2 leaders, Sunghee and Gyuri.  After School had 3 leaders, Kahi, JungA, and Nana.  Nine Muses had 4 leaders, Jaekyung, Sera, Rana, and Hyuna.  If the article author wanted to be just groups with more than 1 assigned leader at the same time, that person should've re-phrased that overgeneralized headline!

@  Emperor Ryu (06:50:02 AM)

<<<  Despite people already knowing from other news outlets about that utter disgrace of a Taekwondo instructor, this one k-pop media could've pivoted to the Open World Entertainment Incident, which is similar in criminal nature that happened back in 2012.

@  Emperor Ryu (06:49:45 AM)

<<<  When will JYP debut that new girl group?  Hopefully, with a very good group name that isn't, "Squ4d".  If they went by "Squ8d", or "Sq12d", or any number between 8 and 12, that would make sense, and fit perfectly to how many soldiers are in a "SQUAD"!  Only a "FIRE TEAM" is 2 to 4 soldiers in it!  To think, South Korea that has a mandatory military training for their citizens, it would've been very clear how many are in each grouping.  Twice is definitely a squad.  The Wonder Girls is definitely 2 fire teams, or 1 fire team and 1 close support team (Usually a sniper team or heavy weapon team that's designated as a close support team.).  Itzy is a fire team with a commanding officer, or rescued package, or +1.  ^_^  Tehehehehe.

<<<  We sincerely hope he doesn't try to influence this ideal onto the members or attempt to commit any crimes onto to them which includes coercion to commit a crime, especially sexually, rape, or human trafficking/prostitution.  For goodness sake, Nick already has 7 kids and broke Mariah Carey's heart more than once, even when he denied it.  SM should be on a very strict look out for their employees' safety, healthy, and protection nonetheless.  They all better test negative for the coronavirus too.

@  Emperor Ryu (06:48:43 AM)

<<<  His Aespa bias is, . . . wait for it, . . . "all of them."  ^_^  Interesting SM accepted to be on Nick Cannon's show.  Although he apologized for his racist and anti-semitic remarks he made last year that resulted in his firing from Viacom, he has been reflecting on his views and beliefs.  It's no doubt his actions and beliefs are a result of brainwashing by Satanic, liberal teachings back by the current vile democratic party, and he's slowly learning this fact.  We're not sure how his Israel trip went and what he learned from it, but we do hope it changed his life for the better.  His continued struggle against sinful lust still remains a very concerning problem however.  This past August, he proclaimed he is against monogamy.  He didn't say he was supportive of polygamy, but rather said he has no say when a woman wants to have his kids.

@  Emperor Ryu (06:48:14 AM)

<<<  Another k-pop media made a mistake by suggesting certain K-Pop songs.  It's best to suggest entire albums of current active K-Pop Artists, but exclude ones that went stupidly political and pushing evil Satanism and woke SJW beliefs, such as the bts puppets.

<<<  Again, that author has much studying to do since it's kind of obvious this person isn't a 2nd Generation (2000-2003.) nor 1st Generation (1996-1999.) or even a 3rd Generation (2004-2007.) K-Pop Fan, because they would already know all of this.

@  Emperor Ryu (05:39:34 AM)

<<<  We're not sure how badly infected Sugar was back then, but it can be easily presumed it was mostly group wide with all of remaining members agreeing to go their separate ways, leaving Ayumi to be the only one left in SM before the end of 2006.  Ayumi would try to bring popular J-Pop and Anime trends to South Korea, such as riding along with the anime Cutie Honey franchise at the time.  At one point she was Gackt's girlfriend back in 2012.  To note, he did the best Uesugi Kenshin character portrayal, such as this scene, . . . https://www.youtube....?v=lIncWHMElaI  (Yes, that really happened in Human History.)  But it is true what the author is saying how Sugar's music did leave good impressions in K-Pop, but forgot to mention they did helped bridge good relations between South Korea and Japan, despite the evilness involved during "The Dark Age Of K-Pop".

@  Emperor Ryu (05:38:55 AM)

<<<  Sugar wasn't trying to establish some sort of stupid, social, SJW pecking order nonsense back then.  With experimentations comes mixed reactions and shortcomings, one of the reasons that helped convince Hwang Jung Eum to shift careers and left the girl group that same year.  Things were getting bad during "The Dark Age Of K-Pop" leaving bad impressions of the K-Pop Artists in general, even Sugar was contemplating what to do next in 2005.  Things were very bad for them to be even taken advantage of by evil people in the industry, as pointed out by Lee Harin, who was later found guilty of prostitution along with others back in 2016 with ties to the dark side of Japan's entertainment industry.  No joke.  Seeing how things were turning bleak for Sugar, disbandment was right around the corner.

@  Emperor Ryu (05:38:29 AM)

<<<  S.E.S. would be going on their individual activities in 2003.  Sugar wasn't really meant to mirror S.E.S because that was Shinvi's duty to be S.E.S's little sisters.  But their debut sparked a very weird controversy, and they didn't last long and disbanded unfortunately.  M.I.L.K sort of took up some of it, leaving Sugar to be more experimental for SM to figure out where they wanted to go, especially when Ayumi is from Japan.  During this time SM was making moves into Japan at this time with BoA leading the charge.  In a way, Sugar was sort of viewed as proof of peace between the two markets and music industries.  Sugar didn't really go for a girl crush concept since YG's Lexy was the one killing that concept with her Girls music video back in 2004.  Sugar mainly focused on finding a good fusion vibe between K-Pop and J-Pop through the girl group.

@  Emperor Ryu (05:37:47 AM)

<<<  That other media covering Sugar's career is misinterpreting the time period title, which is actually just called, "The Dark Age Of K-Pop", NOT "dark era of girl groups", because both female and male K-Pop Artists were going through a very dark time.  For example, back in 2006, TVXQ member, Yunho was given orange juice that was poisoned and ended up in the hospital to get his stomach pumped to remove it.  Around this time, several members were suspected of doing very bad things to their fans too, such as breaking their hearts intentionally.  So this author doesn't have all of the facts about "The Dark Age Of K-Pop".  Another thing this person completely forgot during this time is that SM also had M.I.L.K, Shinvi, and Isak 'N' Jiyeon along with S.E.S and Sugar, meaning SM had literally 5 girl groups at the same time!

<<<  His Running Man bias is, . . . wait for it, . . . "all of them."  ^_^  Kwangsoo being a good boyfriend to Lee Sunbin is very good to hear.  ^_^  Even though they're 9 years apart from each other.  Things appear to look good between them.  As long as Kwangsoo is behaving gentlemanly to her, and in accordance to the Bro Code by not cheating on her at all, there might be a shot at marriage between them.  We shall see.  Knowing how deceptive he can be (Referring to the Running Man episodes of them crashing at his place as a sort of celebrity intervention.  ^_^), we can only hope he has outgrown such habits.  Come to think of it, even that episode with Kwangsoo and Somin too.  ^_^  Tehehehehe.

@  Emperor Ryu (04:57:07 AM)

<<  One of many reasons why people raised on wokeness and SJW Satanic beliefs are proven and founded as weak, unreliable, and combat INEFFECTIVE!  The military going woke is the dumbest thing EVER!  These people do NOT understand war.  The only thing we all agree is that we all don't want a war.  Unfortunately, we all must be prepared to fight a war should it ever does happen.  For example, World War II was considered at the time the war to end all wars.  But that wasn't true when numerous wars broke out around the world afterwards.  So, as good intentions favors peace, but realistically, that's a luxury "nobody" can afford, truth be told.  Reminds me of this movie scene, . . . https://www.youtube....h?v=vJSo9WSmR2s

@  Emperor Ryu (04:56:57 AM)

<<<  Not sure why that one k-pop media is covering psychological combat readiest in South Korea's military when it has nothing to do with K-Pop at all.  Sure, every military in the world suffers from suicides, but what people keep forgetting is during combat, or rather during war, such insults are extremely common between enemies.  That's a fun fact.  Psychological warfare has been around since ancient times.  If the soldier cannot handle the psychological stress of combat, then this person either needs to be reassigned to non-combat duties, or be discharged from service as soon as possible.  One could make an argument that bullying from fellow soldiers "could be" detrimental to team work, but in "most cases" during training, that doesn't seem to be the majority at all.  It just proves the mental toughness soldiers has when dealing with psychological war and the stress that comes with it.

@  Emperor Ryu (04:55:41 AM)

<<<  Even our physical and digital copies are the same as this.  We checked with the closest uploaded online videos with the 4 SNSD members being time stamped on September 2, 2021.  So, if this accusation is indeed true, then the show made a very quick edit and re-uploaded it on the same day.  Or another broadcast company made the edits deliberately in spite of Jessica, and wanted to further divide the 9 SNSD members.  We noticed a few online forums spewing SNSD hate on Jessica and laughing at her absence in the accusing edited photo.  Either way, SNSD will always be 9 members, and no one can ever erase that fact.  Sure, a few of these Jessica haters will say the current SNSD member count is current 5 members since the others have left SM Entertainment, making a bunch of hypocrites out them claiming it's 8.

@  Emperor Ryu (04:55:06 AM)

<<<  This is super weird coming from these netizens claiming You Quiz On The Block deliberately edited out Jessica out of an album cover???  We looked back and watched again, and not once did that edited photo appear in the September 1, 2021 episode.  Here's a segment of that episode when the photo is suppose to appear, which happens to be a Gee album group picture.  But instead, there's a totally different photo of only Hyoyeon, Yoona, Sunny, and Yuri photo which appears to be from the Gee music video, . . . https://www.youtube....?v=HV42PMfmsS4  Another thing we recalled and confirmed that the entire episode did in fact show Jessica numerous times for the stage performances and music videos.  When we first watched the episode a few days after it was broadcasted, we don't recall ever seeing this accusing edited photo back then, since the South Korean official Gee Album photo is this, . . . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gee_(EP)

@  Emperor Ryu (04:58:35 AM)

<<<  Just looking at the criminal stats in Thailand, it's no wonder the country is moving more towards militarism.  Having way more murders than the U.S. is most definitely a huge red flag.  Wow, even embezzlements and cyber-crimes in Thailand are way more than the U.S.  More women in prison than the U.S. too?  Naturally, the U.S. hopes Thailand will be more democratic, but can anyone really blame Thailand's government for wanting the country to be more free from crime and Satanism these days?  Strange how the U.S. is fighting against the illegitimate biden/harris administration for actually corruption and Anti-Americanism, while Thailand is seeking to end corruption and Anti-Thai amongst the people.  Interesting world we all live in, no?  ^_^

@  Emperor Ryu (04:58:23 AM)

<<<  Is it wrong for a daughter to role model her father who hasn't done any harm to her?  What does the father's political stance have to do with her when she's old enough to have her own political views which most likely nobody will ever come to know since she wants to be an entertainer, not a politician.  If K-Pop netizens are worried about Thailand's governance, how come nobody is asking the real questions as to why Thailand's military is trying to gain more power in the first place?  What was the catalysis that convinced the military to move more domestically, than internationally?  Is it surprising to hear both Thailand's and China's forces working together to put down drug lords along the Mekong River recently?  Was foreign influences effecting the people to adopt ideals that is anti-Thai, like Satanism?

@  Emperor Ryu (04:58:04 AM)

<<<  For example, it was nice to see a K-Pop music video supporting the U.S. not long after the September 11, 2001 terrorists attacks on the World Trade Center, but it wasn't played for very long due to the impact of the lives lost on that very day.  Technically, it's a nice sentiment, but it didn't really do that much because a huge, massive majority in South Korea already sided with the U.S. and didn't really need any more sympathy, especially when sympathy was being turned into war very quickly.  Come to think of it, we don't recall that K-Pop song ever charting high back then.  It could've charted high and we missed that due to our attention being focused on the terrorists.  Again, people need to have the full story before jumping to any conclusion anyways.  More importantly, why does politics have to be in K-Pop in the first place when Sitala herself didn't mention any of it during her training time in the K-Pop Industry publicly???

@  Emperor Ryu (04:57:44 AM)

<<<  Most people internationally would even side with the monarchy and government against such evils quite easily.  For example, a very beautiful young woman who was abused in every evil way threw herself into a pit of crocodiles to end her suffering in life in Thailand.  It was said she was so beautiful that the news of her death resulted in firebombing the crocodile pit and slaughtering every single one of them to reassemble her remains and give her a burial, back in 2014, 2013?  I think it was at a zoo, if memory serves correctly?  Somewhere around that time.  So, we're not sure where Sitala's political stance is back in Thailand these days, but we're very sure politics is the very last thing, if not a proven taboo, in K-Pop.  K-Pop itself is not suppose to be political because it's entertainment.

@  Emperor Ryu (04:57:23 AM)

<<<  The last one was back in September of 2019, we think.  Some times, protesters do NOT have a good grip on current affairs of state internationally.  Some people outside of Thailand sort of sees a similarity to a few european countries where there's a royal family and a ruling governing system in place.  What's puzzling about this entire issue is asking why are protesters targeting the king for exercising his right to defend himself when he's just a figure head with very limited powers.  Thailand's government has most of the country's control.  We are aware Thailand harbors a very substantial Satanic presence within its borders and the amount of criminal activities, which happens to include a very prolific human trafficking and human mutilation records going back for decades, truth be told.

@  Emperor Ryu (04:57:01 AM)

<<<  His H1-KEY bias is, . . . wait for it, . . . "all of them."  ^_^  My, oh my, more politics to deal with in K-Pop.  >.<  We can understand "logical" reforms to help the people of Thailand, but not "illogical" reforms that moves towards more obvious evil Satanism.  It has come to our attention that most of these protesters seem to forget what's happening in the Southeast Asia Waters, namely China's Naval Military.  Having Thailand being part of the coalition to voice against China's aggressive move in this region is a good thing for years.  And yes, we're aware some military officials in Thailand would rather join China for some odd reasons and even made successful military deals with them since 2016.  Thailand's military is not stupid and knows the U.S. military has the best arms in the world, and still secured military deals with the U.S.

<<<  Without the loop feature, there's no way for this person to reload or go back to the same video while away from the computing device, therefore, today's YouTube metric for views was already moot to even make any sort of reference to, even when a music video debuts.  Sure, it could somehow indicate a sort of passion towards the videos, but it can't be truly claimed as being the most watched at all.

@  Emperor Ryu (04:16:31 AM)

<<<  That one k-pop media is at it again with assuming a YouTuber using YouTube's views to falsely claim that it is the only platform in the world that people use to watch K-Pop content.  >_<  There's other platforms in the world that has K-Pop content that people can watch them.  Let's not forget YouTube has a loop feature to watch videos, so view counts on it doesn't truly reflect how many people watch K-Pop.  When there was no loop feature, then it was alright.  For example, a person puts a video on a loop, then leaves for work, probably with a steady income to pay for utilities, and has the volume way down or at a moderate level.  Continues doing daily routines and before going to bed, turns it off.  Get the point yet?

<<<  When asked who started this cultural war, it definitely wasn't the right side, but the left, truth be told.  Personally, we can understand Ilbe and we can respectfully disagree with them on many issues (Including throwing some of them into jail for breaking the law and performing criminal acts against another human being without any solid, valid reason or evidence.), even agree on a few things surprisingly, as long as we all can talk to each other in order to understand, and learn from each other, and truth be told, conservatism is a very good thing that helps to ensure humanity's very existence.  ^_^

@  Emperor Ryu (05:57:36 AM)

<<<  Adults sexualizing the underage kids and teens is just evil and irresponsible that leaves psychological traumas and really screwed up beliefs when it comes to relationships.  So totally factually serious about all of this.  This person doesn't even realize the hyperbolic stance being taken when it comes to Free Speech online.  When the left-wing was pushing their advocacy for Satanism back in the late 1980s and 1990s, before the internet, the right-wing listened to what they had to say, unlike today, with the internet, where the left-wing doesn't want to listen to what the right-wing has to say, and tries to silence them with their hate when they have been proven wrong on their issues publicly, especially online.  Anyone is willing to inquire with this author if he or she ever bothered to, or even dare ask, if the left DIDN'T hate the right so childishly and stupidly in South Korea, would they still created Ilbe?

@  Emperor Ryu (05:57:06 AM)

<<<  It was the left side of the isle that was poking fun and hating the right side that made them to form this radically new community.  Did these leftists thought none of them would come out to defend themselves in some form?  What does anyone call this article after the stupid, fascists liberals and their brainwashing medias on YouTube started getting their channels demonetized and banned from the platform?  Funny, ain't it?  LOL!  The fact that the lgbtq is founded in Satanism gets totally ignored by the left-wing media, for example.  Even CNN tried to paint Satanism as a good thing in the U.S. when it's NOT!  The left demonized the right for being truthful (Church Of Satan.).  Even now, extremist left-wingers are attempting to make pedophilia and transgenderism acceptable as gay marriage.  Telling a child to self-mutation to be the opposite gender is so wrong on so many levels, especially when there's no way to reverse the medial surgeries.  Fact.

@  Emperor Ryu (05:56:38 AM)

<<<  Citing and quoting sources who are not left-leaning helps a reader to better understand every side of the issue to help come to a more informative decision, rather than just because this person doesn't really like this, therefore I, the reader, must comply and obey to this author's stupidly biased, uninformed thinking, and childish beliefs, which is just atypical brainwashing crap.  The hypocritical ignorance this author has done in the article is merely leaving out the fun fact that it's "some" South Korean websites that are left-wing with their mistakes and lies they've done, like pushing woke and stupid SJW nonsenses are what insulted these people to be more openly conservative and speaking out against their false narratives about many things.  This is the main focal reason how Ilbe got started in the first place.

@  Emperor Ryu (05:56:10 AM)

<<<  Anyways, these points right here proves how demonically evil and spiteful, not to mention how vastly uneducated this person is towards people who most likely knows more, understands more, definitely studied way more, and does more in life to make a better world by comparison.  Being a good journalist is to be able to get "ALL SIDES" of the story.  This person did only a half-ranting, opinionatedly hate piece who didn't even bothered to ask why Ilbe took such issues to the extreme.  This person just comments and uses other people's comments, instead of getting it "STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE", like talking to Ilbe members.  This further proves this author is attempting to build a media echo chamber who can't even talk to the other side and get the "REAL FULL STORY".  Background is the easy part.

@  Emperor Ryu (05:55:35 AM)

<<<  And YouTube has been getting sued and LOSING THEIR COURT CASES against conservatives, meaning their losing more money than they estimated before.  One such example is Steven Crowder who always "pisses" on YouTube with most of his videos because YouTube has been trying to cancel him since the Vox Incident.  Not kidding about that.  Especially how much italicized and "quoting" sentences, without giving any source referencing whatsoever that's very non-journalistic, isn't obviously the author's biased take by being a nip-picky person trying to build a stupidly hateful narrative.  The "you" is just such a Freudian slip that everybody can laugh at this person for such a stupid mistake.  LMAO!  Maybe this person was banned from YouTube and decided to write this stupid article for some sort of idiocy.

@  Emperor Ryu (05:55:04 AM)

<<<  Want one good example, Little Richard.  He knew full well what the lgbtq truly is, and he fought against it despite being part of it.  A very good man.  God rest his good soul.  v_v  This author hopes to paint conservatives in general are inherently evil no matter where they are in the world, which is very exaggeratively incorrect and a flat out LIE!  And why did the author intentionally wrote, "YouTube has rapidly taken over as an alternative platform for the scattered you right-wing men, both Ilbe and non Ilbe."???  YouTube currently is fighting on a thin red line by trying to preserve their current unedited Section 230 clause.  YouTube has been censoring more conservatives than liberals over the years, but this has been shifting towards the middle with liberals getting their karma punishments for trying to oust conservatives, because conservatives are NOT to be discriminated or attacked for the dumbest reasons EVER!!!

@  Emperor Ryu (05:52:30 AM)

<<<  At least both the U.S. and South Korea have the same red is for conservatives and blue is for the liberals.  The author's narrative in the article attempts to paint conservatives as illogical thugs, when in fact, that's the brainwashing media's talking point to discourage the facts that there are indeed intelligent and morally centered people by doing the one stupid assumption to overgeneralize and falsely accuse and discriminate by identity politics.  Sure there's some that aren't that up to par as the rest, as the article points out in South Korea, but that doesn't mean everybody whose conservative is terribly bad as them.  By far, not even close to the likes of them, truth be told.  Just like there's some in the Satanic lgbtq community who truly and actually denounces homosexuality and gay marriage, even as a sin, are not terrible people either.

@  Emperor Ryu (05:52:02 AM)

<<<  That one k-pop media's take on Ilbe is not fully flushed out due to the article author's bias and heavily placed atypical victimization with left-leaning, anti-conservative views, while citing some lefty medias and sources that aren't fully informed themselves on the issues in South Korea. This author deliberately left out how the left-leaning media outlets who played their own "narratives" and ignored obvious political and social cover-ups with innuendoes and lies.  Although Ilbe are seen as destructive and extreme in their views, it does present a good buffer to counter any crimes, lies, and fakeness from the left side in South Korea.  It's quite actually awkwardly weird on how the leftists in the U.S. are similar to Ilbe, yet they have very polar and driven opposing views on the same issues.  Funny how this author DIDN'T notice that.  It's sort of the same when it comes to Europe's left is like the U.S.'s right.  So strange.
