Anyway, SISTAR's Hyolyn will be performing at the SXSW in Austin, Texas.

DEAN performed last year and he received so many media attention including from several American Hip-Hop publications. So let's see how it's gonna work for her since she's not really the type of artists I would imagine to perform at the SXSW.
Hyolyn? Why would they invite someone who released one of the biggest flops last year? She hasn't been relevant since 2013. They should have booked Hyuna (but they probably couldn't afford her).

^I believe she wants to pull a CL/DEAN/Eric Nam/Ailee as well, maybe? Because here's what is written in her SXSW page.

Hyolyn has gained the respect of musicians from around the world. Not only has Hyolyn collaborated with Far East Movement, but she has also worked with composer Giorgio Moroder. Also, by performing at Ultra Singapore 2016 which is one of the world famous EDM music festivals, she has been building her career in global market.

So an Asian artist performing at an Asian festival in an Asian country is building her career in global market? :lol:

US faves Hyuna & f(x), and slew of other KPOP acts have already done SXSW so it's really nothing new. :lol:

Anyone see the CLC comeback pics? It's their first comeback since 4minute split and Cube is already turning them into a 4minute replacement. I've loved CLC since debut and I liked their cute/pop/colourful style... this is a major change

I think if it contains at least 5 new songs, I think it will.

By the way, EXO's Chanyeol's song "Freal Luv" with Far East Movement & Tinashe is charting inside top 50 on Rhythmic radio. Second K-Pop act to chart inside the top 50 after PSY I believe.

CLC is to 4minute what Beige Pink is to 2NE1. But this still sounds hot.

I adore CLC and seemed to have been rooting for them even when they've flopping this whole time. I think this will be their biggest comeback so far. Sure, the image is a big transformation from what we've seen from them before but they've always been versatile performers in my eyes so I don't think this will be such a "dramatic" change.

Also, since 2NE1 and 4minute are now RIP - we need a bit more of this style right? 8-)

IT'S HERE.



I like it ! Having seen the trailers and concept photos, it's exactly how I expected it to be tbh. I hope this does well for them so they can finally get out of the flop tier they're in, but I'm not sure if it'll end up being my favourite song from them.

Listening to the mini now.... "Liar" is AWESOME

The whole MV and song has Hyuna's stamp on it, doesn't it :lol: :lol: She co-wrote the song too.

I do think the song itself and MV are a little jarring in comparison to Pepe and High Heels, for example. That's undeniable. But Cube has kind of been clever with the mini album IMO because 3/4 of the tracks probably wouldn't sound out of place on their previous releases. It's good to not alienate the original fans (including me!) :lol:

Didn't chart in the Melon top 100 chart though - Pepe, High Heels and No Oh No managed to do that :cry: :cry:

4minute
Blackpink
EXID
CLC
Stellar

All of those artists are horrible (except for 4minute), but they have that same kind of girl crush concept. The truth is there is only one Hyuna in the K-Pop world.

:lol: :lol:

If we're talking about female soloists, there are only Hyuna & CL who look badass/hoe-ish and do mostly Urban-leaning Pop stuff. And maybe I would also say Lee Hyori too but I've only heard one song from her so I'm not totally sure.
