It's performances like this one that make me wish Hyuna was an American artist. She would slay all those irrelevant hoes without even trying.

Idk, I love seeing Hyuna in music videos but in live performances - naaahhh. She kinda reminds me of Brit. They both don't even hide anymore if they lipsynced and some times they half-assed the choreography.

CL stays as THE BEST female K-Pop performer (would never forget when I saw her live). No other comes close. Ailee is great too sometimes as a performer. And my bae Hyoyeon killed it on Hit The Stage, I feel like she had to hold back when she performed as a group. As for girl groups, I'd give it to 2NE1, SISTAR (all live stages for "I Like That" are amazing), BLACKPINK & Wonder Girls.

As for males, actually most of them are really good. For K-Hip-Hop/K-R&B artists, Bobby, Zico and DEAN are all amazing live. As for idols, Taeyang, BTS, BIGBANG, GD, IKON, GOT7 & NCT are all great performers as well.

Nam Taehyun (ex-WINNER) is now recruiting members for his band via Tumblr. He's such a mess. :lol:

But I feel like he's finally living his own life now after he left YG. He starts going to clubs, posting pics of him smoking, etc. Music wise, I always heard that he's more into Indie/Alternative so you do you! I'm interested to see where he's going with his career.

Anyway, Ailee is having a US debut and the song sounds awful. It sounds like "When Love Takes Over" x "This Is What You Came For". :-?



And let's not talk about her new stage name, like what even is that?

I read about the new stage name and it's useless. why would she even change her name... the fact that her latest album / single "Home" flopped may have been the reason why she decided to go back home. I love Home though, it's such an amazing song

We're only one week in, but this is my favourite release of 2017 so far :lol:

APRIL's mini album is so strong - I hope they've finally hit their stride and are gonna keep this line up for good.

^ I'm expecting it to be their biggest song to date. Now KARA and Rainbow are RIP, DSP really need to invest everything into April and I think they're already doing so. Their mini album is so good and this is easily their best title track yet. I think they've got potential to be HUGE in Korea, they're incredibly talented as a whole.

(Also check out "Jelly" from their last mini in 2016. It's so addictive)

I'm not into this sound in the likes of April and GFRIEND at all. Not my thing

Correct me if I'm wrong but Kai can't even sing.... or rap. He just... dances, and looks good. :lol:

:lol: I think Baekhyun, D.O. & Chen all are pretty great vocalists. The ones that I know can't sing are Kai, Sehun & Lay.

^Coming for a new Billboard record. They better release it on Friday!

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.
