BLACKPINK’s Lisa meets TWICE’s Mina

Meet-up between Lisa and the penguin. Screenshot from BP Diaries page.

ATLANTA, GA, United States – Meet the animals.

In their Blackpink Diaries, Lisa was excited to view the sea creatures in Georgia Aquarium. They traveled in pairs, and she was accompanied by Rosé.

Out of several penguins she saw, one stood out. It was TWICE’s Minari, who is taking a rest after being exhausted in various concerts. Upon seeing Mina, Lalisa did not hide her fascination over the penguin, and instead greeted her.

In a separate interview, Mina earlier told that she needed rest, as she wants to be with her fellow penguins. Another reason was that she wants to try ballet, another talent she rarely continued since she was drafted to the group.

She was touched over Lalisa’s reactions. “나는 리사와 같은 방문객이 나에게 행복 할 때 행복해했다. 그녀는 평소와 마찬가지로 나뿐 아니라 내 그룹을 사랑합니다. 지금까지, 나는 우리가 우리 노래에서 한 것처럼 우리의 춤을 즉시 기억할 수 있는지 궁금해했다.” (I felt happy when visitors like Lisa are happy on me. She as usual loves not only me, but also my group. Till now, I ever wondered if I can instantly remember our dance as what she did on our song,) referring to Lisa’s dancing of What Is Love, where she memorized its steps easily.

The Japanese star further narrated, “내 형제 자매들과 함께하는 것이 나에게 편안함을 느꼈다. 죄송합니다. 완세스와 동료 멤버가 지금 나를 놓치고 있습니다. 너를 모두 행복하게 만들 수있게 되겠지. ” (It felt comfortable for me to be with my brothers and sisters. Sorry also for the Onces and my fellow members who are missing me now. Will be right back to make you all happy.)

Although their meet-up was short, Lisa’s enchantment on seeing penguins was priceless. The Thai performer told that “나는 바쁜 일정 때문에이 동물들을 볼 시간이 거의 없다. 이제 나는 기회가 생겼고, 이제 미나를 포함하여 그들과 함께 할 수있다. ” (I rarely have the time to see these animals due to hectic schedules. Now that I have the chance, I can now play with them, including Mina.)

Lisa expressed her desire to meet the penguin again. “아마도 음악 상을 함께 만날 수 있습니다,” (Maybe, on music awards, we can meet together,) was her final remark.

The whole encounter of Lisa can be seen in this video from 1:16 – 2:05:

MOMOLAND’s Yeonwoo and her endless alibis

After giving it much thought, this article has to be released. With MOMOLAND’s Yeonwoo always missing, she always raises red flags on attendance. This also serves as call-out for her to correct her mistakes.

While I have to limit write-ups for this month, I have to do this to let her realize some lessons: (1) Most companies are strict on employees who are missing in action, and (2) famous K-Pop groups don’t share this kind of issue she is facing.

This is to clarify my extreme displeasure for Yeonwoo only, not on other MOMOLAND members. So far, the other eight have no attitude problems, as I will discuss later.


MOMOLAND has been one of my favorite groups, but I hate to be frank with them.

Background

It seems this year is unlucky one again for MOMOLAND. Recently, Yeonwoo is said to leave the group and agency. Reports tell of reasons behind absences: rumored to be “maltreated”, friend’s post telling that she’ll “return to her old self”, and her venture in K-Drama. It looks like the latter would be the case.

Yeonwoo’s acts ignited misunderstanding with Merries. As full-pledged Merry, am I happy with what she did? No.

I removed her

Furthermore, I am not pleased with Yeonwoo supposedly prioritizing dramas over commitments with the group:

No choice but to remove Yeonwoo as my bias. She has the habit of making excuses not attending various fanmeets and concerts, and going somewhere else, as Soompi reported:

“…[She] has not been participating in recent schedules…because she is filming her drama. With regards to…Chile on June 28, Yeonwoo did not participate due to health reasons…”

These same reasons tell why she is also missing in PH TV shows. Seems that she is not interested anymore in letting more Filipinos know about her.

Not convinced

To add, Yeonwoo’s alibis are not anymore convincing, as she is repeating it all over again. If she was an employee of a company, she would’ve been dismissed outright.

She should feel ashamed with her fellow members, with TWICE, and BLACKPINK’s Jennie.

In their recent concert in Manila, most TWICE members suffered injuries, but still managed to go to various schedules. They even performed complete, for the sake of PH Onces who waited for them. This is the attitude we see from the group, and virtually no word of unreasonable excuse can be heard on any TWICE member since their debut. It only took JYP Ent. to put Minari to rest, considering that her health was failing.

In fact, as Koreaboo pointed out with regards to the group:

“Even one member can make a major difference in a group, and TWICE made sure that fans knew the importance of all of them as one.”

As to BLACKPINK’s Jennie, though she was subjected to gossips, she still performed with the other three. Most important, even if she got sick, she managed to have time with PH Blinks in their recent Shopee endorsement. She used this chance to introduce herself even to non-K Pop fans who were there.

Even if Jendeukie is enduring the pain from PH to Macau, and even if this warrants rest, she still kept going on till she left the concert last June 8. This she made so as not to dismay PH and Macanese Blinks who are rooting for her.

These things are what Yeonwoo must keep in mind, everytime she makes an alibi for the nth time. That habit of hers won’t take her long even if she ventures in drama.

Final Words

Yeonwoo has to keep in mind these things, for the sake of Merries and her other fans. I would be more than happy to retract this article and consider adding her again to bias list, if she’ll make up for the times she missed.

What must she do? She must show herself complete with other members in any PH TV shows, greet, and tell more about herself to PH non-K Pop fans. That would be more than enough.

Love Advice No. 105 (Sex and Virginity)

Bilang bahagi pa rin ng reflection sa Love Advice sa loob ng halos limang taon, tatalakayin ng may-akda ang isa pang sensitibong topic: Sex at virginity.

Ano ba ang wastong pagtingin tungkol sa pagtatalik at pagkabirhen? Kung mali ang pagtingin dito, ano ba ang magiging epekto nito sa pamilya, sa bansa, at sa ating lahat? Alamin dito:


Isa ang sex at virginity sa mga pinakasensitibong topic sa kahit anong love advice. Normally ay hindi ito pinag-uusapan. Pero dahil sa dami ng mga nabubuntis nang maaga, o nabubuntis nang di pa kasal, dapat lang na pag-usapan ito. Let’s settle this once and for all.

Siguro naman ay nakakarinig kayo ng mga kaibigan o kaanak na nabubuntis nang di pa kasal. Kung hahayaan natin ito, magkakaproblema tayo. Nakakatakot din na makasanayan ito at maging kultura na pag di inagapan.

Guidance

Tulad ng binanggit ko noon, importante sa isang nagdadalaga o nagbibinata ang magabayan ng tama dito. Importante rin na maipaintindi sa kanila ang magiging bunga pag mali ang desisyon nila.

Ang pagtuturo ng tamang pangmalas sa sex ay pangunahing responsibilidad ng magulang. Sunod ang paaralan at ang Simbahan. Hindi ng kung sinu-sino tulad ng mga artista.

General principle

Ang sex ay isang bagay na para sa mag-asawa lamang. Yes, ito ay isa pang paraan para ipahayag ang damdamin sa pag-ibig, pero reserved lang ito sa kanila. Kung nag-sex bago ang kasal, masyado silang excited. Di makapaghintay.

Minsan nakakarinig tayo ng katagang “Kung mahal mo ako, patunayan mo,” meaning need na mag-sex para ma-prove ang pag-ibig. Wala sanang problema kung kasal na. Eh paano kung hindi pa? Ito ba ang sukatan ng tunay na pag-ibig? Hindi.

Ano ang mangyayari pag nag-sex bago ang kasal? Depende sa magsyota. Pero ito ang most likely na scenario: Kung ibinigay mo na agad ang pagkababae nang di pa kasal, posibleng mawala ang excitement na nararanasan sa sex. Posibleng makaramdam ng guilt after makipagtalik.

Minsan, pag ibinigay na ang lahat, hindi masisiguro na mananagot ang lalaki, sakaling nabuntis ang babae. Pag kasi nabuntis nang di-oras, malamang ay iiwanan siya ng lalaki dahil ayaw panagutan ang ginawa. Mas malala pa, magiging uso na ang tinatawag na “single parent.”

Virginity

Ngayon, sa ilang tanong related sa virginity, meron pa kayang tatanggap sa iyo kahit hindi na virgin? Ang sagot ay oo. May mga tao na handang tanggapin ang kalagayan mo.

Sa isa pang tanong, kung iiwanan ka after ma-virgin. Depende na iyan sa lalaki. Most likely, puwede kang iwan dahil natatakot siya sa responsibilidad. O baka hindi ka iwan dahil mahal ka pa rin niya.

Job mismatch?

Ang problema, ilang kabataan ang may thinking na “Basta naka-sex na, okay na.” Ngayon, kung hindi sila magagabayan dito, isipin kung gaano katindi ang magiging problema. Sa kanilang pamilya. Sa ating bansa. At sa ating lahat.

Unang-una, sa paghahanap ng trabaho. Sa paglaki ng populasyon, dadami ang mga aplikante, pero kakaunti pa rin ang trabaho. Walang problema kung ang paglaki ng bilang ay dahil sa mga kasal/nagpakasal na, at nagkaanak. Wala ring problema kung hindi nabuntis ang dalaga. Dala-dala lang nila ang personal guilt kung meron sila niyan. Pero kung ipa-factor natin ang mga hindi pa (dahil sa PMS), well, doon lang may problema.

Hindi na nakakagulat kung magiging pahirapan ang paghahanap, at kung dumami ang tambay. At hindi na rin nakakagulat kung magkukulang pa rin ang suweldo ng ordinaryong Pinoy.

Other problems

Isa pang problema ay ang pagdami ng mga anak na kapos sa kalinga ng mga magulang. Ito ay natalakay na natin sa nakalipas na Love Advice.

Iba pang mga problema ay sa supply sa pagkain at ang disiplina. Sa supply sa pagkain, ito’y sa pag-convert ng lupa from agri to residential. Unti-unting ginagamit ang sakahan para pagtayuan ng residential houses, dahil dumadami na rin ang tao. Sa pagdami ng tao, tataas ang demand sa pagkain. Ang resulta: food shortage. Ito ang hihila sa presyo ng pagkain paitaas.

Ano pa ang ibang problema? Katulad lang din ng nabanggit na tungkol sa paglobo ng populasyon.

Kita mo, kahit sa simpleng pagwalang-bahala sa sex, puwede itong magdulot ng matinding problema sa ekonomiya at sa atin.

News and Tidbits (July 13, 2019)

Recently TWICE’s Minari had to rest due to health issues:

I felt pity on my ultimate TWICE bias. She deserves rest; after all, she and her members managed to be complete so as not to dismay PH Onces. They also virtually performed and undergone fanmeets all over. And not only Minari, but all members deserve this thing.

Because all TWICE members already paid a visit to PH, which was once a country deprived of their visits, I already revised my rating in their performance of FANCY, in favor of them. Hope this new rating will inspire them more.

***

As of this moment, a TV station features celebrities dancing to tune of SEVENTEEN’s Thanks. On radio stations, TWICE’s Fancy, BTS’ Idol and Boy With Luv, BLACKPINK’s Kill This Love, and MOMOLAND’s Baam and I’m So Hot are being heard all over again.

***

I also wish to tackle health issues with MOMOLAND, even a little bit. Seems that this is their major problem. PH Merries always notice that they are incomplete everytime they are interviewed in PH media.

Since health is their problem, it’s recommended that they take various herbal drinks/medicines. They just have to choose what’s best for their bodies.

On Nayun, I now felt lukewarm on her. Like Yeonwoo, she haven’t appeared in any interviews or shows in PH TV. While her health reasons are very understandable, this has an effect on her popularity, and on the group as a whole.

With regards to Taeha, I am very pleased with her. Even if she also has health problems, as reported earlier, she still managed to be with the group in interviews and shows. She manages to let more Filipinos know about her. It’s just sad to know that she’s on a hiatus till now.

Speaking of Taeha, here’s the latest update:

As to Yeonwoo, I do not believe that she has health problems, but has the habit of making alibis not to attend various shows. Why? We’ll deal with that in a separate article.

***

It’s not helping that their complaints list is piling up one by one.

First is on being incomplete, especially at PH media interviews. Second is on Yeonwoo and her endless alibis. Finally is on setting aside Daisy amidst dating issues. Just a little push on Nancy (over that same issue), and you know what will happen to the group.

***

ITZY has now revealed that MIDZY will be their fandom name.

Considering that we have offered possible fandom names earlier, we can now sing “Midzy bitsy spider went up the water spout.”

***

Here’s another reason why TWICE is one of my most favorite groups:

In their recent concert here, she tried her best to relate with PH Onces.

***

Still monitoring posts from Obsessed and Assessed, and still, no signs of life from the blogsite.

He/she missed various MVs, and I am waiting for the blogger’s critique over these. I suppose that he/she eventually gave up, dismayed over what is happening to the industry today.

***

AOA’s former member Mina recently signed a contract with the new agency.

In this case, though an Elvis also, I will only support the remaining five and Choa. Mina apparently left them during the group’s lowest point, to pursue her own career.

***

Ilang araw pa lang ang nakalipas, pero sariwa pa rin ang nangyari kay Eddie Garcia.

Sa nangyari sa batikang aktor, kumpirmado na nagtitipid na ang GMA7, mula sa pagbawas sa regional stations hanggang sa pagtitipid sa production ng Rosang Agimat. Maaring walang direktang kasalanan ang network, pero negligent sila sa kasong ito.

GFRIEND (여자친구) – Fever (열대야): MV Review

This will be the last MV Review for this month, as I have to focus more on Annual Report, and take a break from posting at the blogsite. All MV Reviews for select July releases after GFRIEND will be published next month, unless otherwise announced.


It has been long since we first reviewed GFRIEND’s opening track this year called Sunrise, where one by one we detail how we review and rate the group.

After Sunrise, they embarked on promotions in Japan, with their song Flower. Next was their soft comeback with their song named Zzan (Cheers), which was used as one of OST of Just One Bite, a K-Drama program. Meanwhile, Eunha collaborated with Ravi of VIXX in an advert project using the Spring theme.

Being a Buddy also, I tried to view their second teaser of the newest song Fever.  First expectation was that they will illustrate again the summer. But as I viewed it, including comments, I felt lost and puzzled. Let’s see in this review if GFRIEND performed well with their new concept:

The storyline revolves on them longing for themselves to spend summer together, and desire to go outside. Still unclear? That is. It also seems surprising that 1theK did not give any hint or storyline behind the song. This would help viewers give an idea what the MV is all about. Meanwhile, the summer theme is consistently present in the video.

GFRIEND portrays its maturity by wearing outfits we don’t see in previous tracks. On music, that was quite exciting, but the pumping music leads us up to that point and nothing else. Their moves can be easily learned, as they used simple steps and added dynamics to it.

The only funny scene was on Umji holding a clear umbrella. While this means things/people that can’t give enough shelter, and while many would not laugh at it, try yourself doing it on a sunny day. On the other hand, viewers would benefit from them, as they teach us to appreciate various plants, especially the cactuses. In fact, I liked also their feature of round cactus.

Review by other sites

KPopReviewed took on a candid approach to GFRIEND. Fever takes on the other side, staying away from conventional tunes that defines the group.

The blogger listed down some negative points for the song. This includes lack of luster needed as they are venturing in new genre for K-Pop. Added to that was the lack of outstanding vibe and facial expressions that will impress upon viewers’ minds. Also, he/she wanted to know the storyline. Meanwhile, positive notes include dance, which tells what GFRIEND will show in their next releases.

Though harsh, the blogger retracted a bit owing to “not-so-successful” releases of Summer Rain and Sunny Summer.

TheBiasList also felt that their recent song was wanting in many aspects. It lacked the tempo needed to regain the momentum it has from the start. The song also repeats itself on the refrain without building up, thereby making it “unsatisfying”.

The blogger stated that he did not want anymore summer themes from any group, except if it is “really good”.

It noted that with GFRIEND trying to change composers as they venture for new genres, they are ending up crossing the line made by usual, disappointing K-Pop tracks we hear. This is the case for the new song which did not keep up at par with its previous tracks.

Review as whole

GFRIEND took a break on drama-type MVs typical of Time for the Moon Night and Sunrise. Their MV can be seen as their experiment on a new concept, and it’s okay if they didn’t finish the performance with a bang, but some things must be considered.

First of all, the title “Fever” is quite misleading. If one will compare it with their previous happy tracks (like Sunny Summer), they embody excitement and joy, traits that are lacking in Fever. Second, they were pokerfaced most of the time. Finally, the neon sign used at end of video, which also implies that they are fully happy, when in fact, they are not.

While they were mature when it comes to concepts, outfits, and moves, the drama element present in the group still remains.

All members are my biases, but the ones caught my attention were Yerin, SinB, and Eunha. Particular interest was of Yerin, as she consistently “owns” the stage. As to SinB, she got the moves. On Eunha, that would be on her outfits.

(Erratum: It’s SinB, not Sowon, who got the moves. Sorry, as at that time I can’t distinguish between the two ladies. Also, apologies for mistake on title: Time For The Moon Night, not Moonlight.)

Other factors

Another criterion is added in favor of the group, for letting Sowon perform despite dating issues. It must be remembered again that she got involved in dating scandal with ASTRO’s Cha Eunwoo, but still, Sowon was given the chance. This is to recognize their good move, and is given to be fair with them. I also assigned ten points for this as sign of gratitude for their wise move.

This is what Momoland’s agency must learn from Source Music, specially on handling issues like these. It made a fatal mistake on advising Daisy to retire first, and with recent scandal haunting Nancy, it won’t be long before the latter will experience the same.

One K-Pop

I also wrote this to share my observation with some fans towards that channel. This is precisely the reason: Provide unified, worldwide K-Pop content. 1theK somehow promotes other groups, even not part of the family. Consider their unboxing of TWICE’s recent album, and promotion of their dance moves.

Honestly, without this channel, imagine difficulty searching various groups in countless channels. Some Buddies reason that these will be deleted once the groups leave 1theK. But the question is, what about BTS? Till now, the Bangtan songs placed under the channel weren’t deleted (such as Boy In Luv and Fire). This will be discussed further in a separate article.

(G)I-DLE ((여자)아이들)– Uh-Oh: MV Review

We are now up again in reviewing (G)I-DLE, with their newest song Uh-Oh.

Before we review the MV, I have a joke:

(G)I-DLE members while singing Senorita:

[Pre-chorus] Shuhua:

Uh-Oh. Uh-Oh. Uh-Oh.
Uh-Oh. Uh-Oh. Uh-Oh.
Uh-Oh. Uh-Oh. Uh-Oh.

[Chorus] Miyeon:

They go. I’ll show, you’re naked. Oh!
I love this second talk.
I’ll go ship her but you…

Having another release this year is good news. Recall that the author gave a failing grade in their past track (Senorita). Now that they are up in their new comeback, have they considered some improvements laid here? Let’s see in this review:

The group haven’t provided clear storyline, though it’s clear that they are in the West. Even 1theK did not provide clear storyline behind it, which for me seems strange. Anyway, the American feel is consistent throughout the whole video. Viewers will get a glimpse of America’s past, as (G)I-DLE brings them to pioneer cars and motorcycles, and will learn how the people lived in the 90s.

Review from other sites

TheBiasList noted that the lack of admiration for Senorita necessitates follow-up song, which somehow is on a right track.

It viewed the instrumentals as “appealing” and “fierce”, particularly on the mix of beats from different genres. Though this steers the song to a standstill, that is tolerable. While at the start, the melody appears boring, the chorus have been added flare, moreso with the “free-form” second verse. While not at par with debut tracks, it’s much better than Senorita.

KPopReviewed also noticed the essence of 90s music present, like “disc scratching”, “urban beat”, and TV/VHS effect. It liked how they channel this kind of genre to show to present generation.

Particular interest was Soyeon, who quite surprised the blogger with her vocals and raps.

As a whole, the track was quite catchy, bold, and contains attitude that defines (G)I-DLE. This is another track that must be added to the portfolio of the group.

Review as a whole

Although I disliked how Soyeon changed her looks, she nevertheless energized me when she was the first to sing (0:13 – 0:23). Also, Soojin still stood out with her daring moves, especially at 1:48 – 1:58. It is given that these moves might clash with conservatism of some Koreans, but they still have to continue. Anyway, nothing lewd or gross is featured here.

Netizens noticed that Shuhua got more lines in Uh-Oh (0:45 – 0:55). That alone is a great improvement. It can be recalled that she herself requested less lines in previous song. This is because some Koreans laughed at how she speaks their language. So, those who laughed at her must have felt ashamed, since she got it flawlessly this time.

I was not disappointed with (G)I-DLE’s newest song. Their upbeat and their vocals were very energetic and refreshing, and this is what I also wanted personally. However, while they improved on some aspects like that of music, some improvements must be done further. This is more on providing clearer storyline, injecting moral lesson, and adding funny scenes in the video. Also, they have to add the 1theK logo, even as a small icon.

SATURDAY (세러데이) – Gwiyomi Song (귀요미송): MV Review

This will be the second time reviewing my new favorite group called SATURDAY.

With their popularity quite pulled up with their song Wi-Fi, we may wonder on their next project. But as we see it later, this is their soft comeback.

Their second release is a special album titled To Sunday Gwiyomi, with Gwiyomi Song as their lead track. It was not clear what the song is all about. But by looking upon the album name, this might be dedicated to their fandom, Sunday.

Gwiyomi Song is a remix/rebranded version of Gwiyomi (by Hari), taking the cute song by adding more cuteness in the MV. And being a full-pledged Sunday, it was equally exciting for me to review their work. They also have to be featured in the sea of K-Pop, hence this MV Review. Let’s start!

While their storyline lacked enough cohesiveness, they somehow tell that they are expressing ways on how to be cute. This concept is consistent throughout the whole video.

Probably the moral lesson is on being happy, which while they expressed it clearly, did not bother to feature another moral lesson. Meanwhile, they are raising consciousness for the viewers to engage in landscaping. This MV has potentials, only if they add more things that will benefit viewers.

The MV is so funny enough to merit perfect score. Funny scenes were on Ayeon (0:30 and 2:46), Haneul (0:41), Juyeon (1:35), and the group’s mood (1:47). Look at how they reacted.

As a whole, I liked this stuff very much, as it is energizing. All members are my biases, so it’s difficult for me to define who is the most outstanding of them all. For now, the focus would be on Ayeon (0:23 – 0:30), Chohee (0:47 – 0:54), and Yuki (0:55 – 0:58), who made the most outstanding aegyo. I find also Chohee’s reactions attractive.

Some things can be noticed in this MV. First, it is Minseo’s first performance with the group, since former member Sunha left them to focus on her own career. Second is on recalling their debut song (Mmook Jji Bba), where Haneul and Minseo played it once (1:48 – 1:50).

Finally, Juyeon has now more lines than their previous song (1:28 – 1:35). That is a good move on their part.

This song (and the group) is definitely underrated. If they placed this video to 1theK, this will get more views and promotions.

Red Velvet (레드벨벳) – Zimzalabim (짐살라빔): MV Review

It’s ten months since their last release of lead song “Power Up.” After that, they focused on promotions in Japan (with Sappy as lead song) and on soft collaboration (with Ellie Goulding and Diplo). Now that they are back in their usual side, now is the chance to review their song called Zimzalabim.

(For a bit info, I only reckon the time they released that song. I did not factor their song last November called Really Bad Boy, as I disliked it very much.)

From the title itself, it speaks of weirdness. Because so far, I haven’t heard anyone chanting this. But the ability to feature something different speaks of the identity that is Red Velvet. With them long gone for many months, will they return with an outstanding performance? We’ll see it in this review:

(Side Note: Since my application last February to become Reveluv hasn’t been approved, my being fan of the group is suspended for now. This leaves me with Wendy as my sole bias.)

Storyline

Their story revolves on them purchasing tickets for them to ride in a rollercoaster. Upon riding, they go through ups and downs till they reached the end inside a cup. Them being in an amusement park (possibly at night) is consistently featured in the video.

In fairness to them, they did not feature anything related to horror. I do hope this will be their move in next projects.

Lessons

The moral lesson implied on this MV is never to give up despite challenges. This is seen with members journeying in the roller coaster against dark clouds, but still kept going.

Meanwhile, viewers will benefit as they will be engaged to try amusement rides (0:40 – 1:10, roller coaster; 1:17, swirling cup; 1:35 – 1:37, photobooth). Though it seems a bit conventional, they still offer the different side of fun and rush.

Other Matters

I find the members’ reactions funny when they were at the photobooth. This is the case at 1:37, where we can see how Seulgi, Joy, and Irene reacted.

At 1:38, it’s Seulgi again, but with other two members doing a wacky pose.

Review by other sites

KPopReviewed rated highly the MV and the group.

First of all, the blogger was amazed on the MV, telling that the sound was full of energy, and settings are colorful. As compared to RBB, Zimzalabim was more impressive. The turning point was on Joy, Seulgi, and Wendy at the bridge.

It also liked the order in the video, though it was random in nature, as seen in transition from rollercoaster to teacup. The only negative point was on their outfits, which were “odd-looking”.

TheBiasList noted that with their last release (RBB) being the most “polarizing”, they should have released better this time.

Percussions and bells dominate the song. Still they used their conventional tunes on the pre-chorus, but then splashes down to nowhere at the chorus. And unfortunately, though the latter part was not bad, it was monotonous, and conflicts with the preceding verses.

The final chorus was awakening as the girls are adding explosive factor to it. But taken as a whole, it lacks the “dynamic centerpiece” that would have placed it at par with their previous tracks.

Review as whole

As a whole, the MV presents itself as fun upon its face, though it was dark enough to be considered as such. If they wanted to show the “fun side”, they should have done it during daylight, not during nighttime. Aside from that, the added excitement (that should have given the song a big bang) was lacking here. They should have also tweaked the chorus so as not to end up like boring, like that of Power Up, or consider borrowing concepts from (G)I-DLE (Senorita) and CLC (No/Me).

The members that stood out for me were Joy and Irene, while Wendy did not. I disliked the latter’s short hair, and I actually was not impressed on how she dress. I find her only beautiful when she declares, “Are you ready for this?…” On the other hand, I also noticed Seulgi donning her outfit like what she did in Bad Boy.

Most notable was their energetic dance at 2:03 – 2:13, which I hope that this dance will trend.

Red Velvet incorporated some concepts from other groups. For instance, at 1:25 – 1:26, they got inspiration from Momoland’s famous song. The chorus almost shares tune of BLACKPINK’s underrated track See You Later. Most conspicious is the members riding on a rollercoaster, which draws from TWICE in their final chorus of Fancy.

They also featured science, which can be seen at 0:37. There it shows the members at zero gravity, and it is illustrated quite perfectly.

Finally, there were special effects in the video, as was the case at 2:54 – 2:55 (with animals), and at 1:47 where Seulgi dances with flying instruments.

The song, like RBB, is highly polarizing. Reveluvs and others like it, but some disagree with it. Given the image of discovering new concepts, let’s see how far this venture will go.

Stray Kids (스트레이 키즈) – Side Effects (부작용): MV Review

For the first time, we will feature another boy group called Stray Kids, with their new lead song Side Effects.

The storyline tells of the boys travelling on the bus. To reach their destination, they have to rent a car, until they reached the dead end. This started the fight among the members, who later left in despair during the night. They finally reached the bus, where they supposedly rode back to where they started. The travel theme is consistently featured throughout the video.

On the music, I find it exciting, but not enough for me to hear it till the end. Not because that was deafening or whatever reason, but in essence that was chaotic.

The moral lessons that can be seen here is on persistence. They don’t give up till they reach the desired destination. If the first destination turns to be a failure, they tried to look for another way. Second is on handling issues, as we see that some members managed to pacify two hot heads. Finally is at 3:39 – 4:00, where they helped a friend in need.

The only thing I find it funny was on their fighting scene. Just look at their reactions.

Review by other sites

KpopReviewed finds the song fitting for this season, where energy is being unleashed. Aside from their usual “boldness and bass,” it also added short stops serving as rest. Nevertheless, momentum was being carried on. If we wil talk about their voices, they showed their potentials.

On the instrumentals, it’s as if it slaps one’s face due to the strength of the track. It shares similarities with their previous song (Miroh), where both fighting scenes are featured, and at their debut (District 9), on various equipments.

The song’s message deals with insecurities and worries as a state of mind. How do we say this? Commenters pointed out the back-up dancers acting as “whisperers”, telling each member what to do. In this case, they are being told to worry.

TheBiasList thought of the song as baffling, frustrating, and thrilling at the same time. Furthermore, it also views the song as “album intro or dance showcase.” Positive points were on the rap verses, which reflects clearly the group’s passion, and on full use of pop melody, as the blogger describes the ingredients used.

Negative side points out to their growl in the video, and on their unpredictability. In essence, this genre Stray Kids is showcasing is hard to understand, but they liked this.

Review as whole

From what I see here, they really tried to explain the real meaning of the title – that is, the side effects of music. This is expressed from the start of the song till 1:08, where they will confuse us on line between verses and chorus. Same goes with last chorus.

I was about to dislike the MV for they are disorganized. But since they did it well, I eventually have to give full points to them. While the usual music we hear from K-Pop (and other songs) is orderly, this explains the other side/side effects of music, that is, chaos. In addition, they also expressed tension between themselves in the whole MV.

If we will try to compare it with their previous song (Miroh), the latter song fares well, especially if we will talk on the song being exciting.

In a little way, they shared the moon concept (at 0:40) from GOT7 in their first chorus of Eclipse.

ATEEZ (에이티즈) – Wave and Illusion: MV Reviews

Major revisions on TweetNewscaster’s MV Reviews will be made starting from this review. It will affect how we present reviews, but not how we rate K-Pop groups. This is done to (1) save more time, (2) simplify reviews, and (3) align ours with the leading MV reviewers today.


This is the first time I will make a review on ATEEZ, another boy group to watch out for. And this is the second time I will combine several tracks in one review. Would their new performances pass the author’s tastes? We’ll see it later.

For simplicity, we’ll refer to the songs Wave as the first video, and Illusion as second.

ATEEZ has been improving considerably on concepts, shifting from their usual strong personality concept. This time, their new songs like Wave and Illusion show their different side.

The storylines of two videos revolve on journey they face. While in Wave, they illustrated it by going to different places – from beaches to supermarket, in Illusion they were on a floating shop. The summer theme in the first video and the pirate/treasure hunting themes in second are consistent throughout.

Dances can be learned easily in Wave, except at 1:11 – 1:16. Same case goes with Illusion, where exception lies at second chorus.

Moral lesson on the first song is on enjoying summer, seen on the whole video, and at 1:39, where they helping each other in lifting a chair. Meanwhile, on the second video, this is seen at 2:05, where it implies the value of time.

Viewers can learn something beneficial on these videos. On Wave, they are making us appreciate the beauty of nature, featured in most parts of video. They are featuring also the following items: radio (0:48), camcorder (0:51), basketball (2:28), and skate (2:29).

Meanwhile, in Illusion, they are making viewers aware that imaginations are endless. Not counting classical items they also feature, like the map (1:03), globe (1:08), and binoculars (1:18).

Funny scenes in these videos can be seen in first song (2:01), where they are having fun in the supermarket. Second song has 0:38, where the two boys read a map, but nothing was written there. Imagine staring on a blank piece of paper to seek directions.

Review by other sites

Finally, KPopReviewed has returned. And this time, he/she immediately reviewed Wave.

The blogger also noticed the overused theme that fits in the season. However, it does feature some things that makes it different from other summer tracks, notably the strong style they have. They striked the balance between it and the bright side of summer. Added to the lightness was the guitar tunes and the vocals. He/she finally liked how they danced while smiling.

TheBiasList was not suprised with the vibe ATEEZ is giving, as it reminds that of BTS in their first years. What impresses him is that the group can turn dislikable music into something that would be “galvanizing.” Though the summer concept has been overused in Wave, they managed to turn it into something amazing via their performance.

For Illusion, TheBiasList praised the group for its wise move sticking with the team for its various tracks. It also called the song as “straightforward” and “aesthetic” track. Though it finds the vocals annoying, it nevertheless was “appealing” and catchy.

Not-so-good points include overuse of concepts and lack of melody, though it has been intertwined with their strong personalities.

Review as whole

As a whole, I find these two songs having a dynamic upbeat and are refreshing, and they seek to show their fun side in these songs. Between the two, the second song is lighter and less serious. The member that stood out for me was Mingi, at 0:30 (Wave) where he still displays his strong voice.

Added points for the first song was that they shared the grocery concept (2:14) with TXT in their song Cat and Dog (at 2:16 – 2:20).

At 3:11, they share the landscape with that of TWICE’s Signal (at 0:28).

Finally, the scene at 1:28 shares striking similarities with Momoland’s Japanese version of Bboom Bboom (at 2:03).

Wave: 90.00%
Illusion: 91.58%

Memoirs: Remembering Jea

Dear Jea:

Habang tinitingnan ko ang picture mo noong bata, napapaisip ako. Noong mga bata pa tayo, pinipilit nating matuto sa mga simpleng bagay, at hindi natin alam kung ano ang mangyayari sa atin pagdating ng araw. Paano kaya kung ikaw pa rin ay buhay hanggang ngayon? Paano kung iba ang sitwasyon natin? Paano kaya tayo ngayon kung pareho tayong pasado sa exam?

Natatandaan ko ang mga panahong nagrereview pa tayo. Bumaba ako para tumaya sa lotto, dahil malaki nga ang jackpot noon. Doon mo na rin ako nahuli, pero tumaya ka pa rin sa ibang laro. Ako pa nga ang naging cheerleader mo sa pagtaya, kahit hindi ka pinalad. Natawa pa nga ako sa expressions mo pag natatalo ka sa ScratchIt.

Marami pa tayong pinagsamahan noon. Sabi mo pa nga, hindi ka muna kumuha ng board exam dahil kailangan mo pa ng dagdag review. After a few months, hindi namin agad nalaman na nagkasakit ka na. Kaya sobrang sakit nang huli kong malaman na wala ka na.

Ikaw na ang isa sa mga inspirasyon ko noong CPA Board Exam. Ipinangako ko sa sarili, na pag nakapasa ako, dadalaw ako bilang pasasalamat. That’s the least na magagawa ko para sa iyo.

Nito lang Sabado de Gloria, tinulungan ako ng mga kaibigan mo sa pag-locate sa iyong puntod. Laking pasalamat dahil sobrang bait nila sa akin, at pinaliwanag sa akin nang maayos kung nasaan iyon. Ang layo pala sa kabayanan, pero sulit din dahil tahimik, at nakakapagmuni-muni pa ako.

Nang makita ko nang malapitan ang puntod, hindi ko naiwasang umiyak. Ang bilis kasi talaga ng panahon. Mahigit dalawang taon na pala tayong di nagkita nang personal. Doon ko na ulit ibinuhos ang lahat ng galit, sakit, at frustrations na nararamdaman ko maipasa lang ang exam. Ito yung mga panahon na wala akong nagawa kundi tanggapin ang lahat ng sitwasyon.

Umiihip ang hangin, at sumasabay na ang mga halaman. Binalikan ko ang mga moments kasama ka. Maikli lang ang oras para dalawin ka. Time to go. Pero kahit paano, magaan na ang pakiramdam ko.

It has been two years since you’re gone. Masakit para sa akin ang nangyari, pero isa lang ang sigurado: Buhay ka pa rin. Sinabi mo rin iyan sa akin. Totoo iyan, kasi ikaw ang kaibigan ko, at mananatili ka sa aking puso habambuhay.

Salamat sa lahat. Kahit na maikli lang ang oras na pinagsamahan natin, binago mo ang buhay ko, at buhay ng mga taong nagmamahal sa iyo.

fromis_9 (프로미스나인) – FUN!: MV Review

For the first time, we are now featuring another group called fromis_9.

Since this is their first song for this year, I am now excited on reviewing their work. While I haven’t considered their work last year, hope this will be enough for them. You may watch first their MV before proceeding to review proper:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

The storyline revolves on how they play and show the word “fun” throughout the whole video.

The official statement from fromis_9 presented their storyline as follows:

Fromis_9 is back with an upgraded sound and performance! Through their 1st Single Album [FUN FACTORY] and its title track “FUN!,” fromis_9 sends a message saying, “let’s get out of our dull routine and have fun! Everything will be joyful and fun with us.” Fromis_9’s pure energy looks to present a refreshing vibe this summer.

The title track, “FUN!” is an up-tempo dance track with a house and disco rhythm that highlights fromis_9’s unique and lively energy.

As fromis_9 seals their identity as “refreshing” icons, they seek to melt the hearts of fans with their fun and unique lyrics that yearn to bring.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

Themes that are consistently featured in the video were on commercial ads.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

The moral lesson primarily is on having some fun.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

Their various ventures will somehow spark interest for viewers to try various hobbies:

At 0:42 – 0:45, on orchestral music. Hope this feature of classical music will let viewers enjoy it.

Another case follows for 1:12 – 1:36, where they feature various sports in the dark. This might inspire viewers to take the fitness challenge.

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 10 points

I have to give full points, as the whole MV in itself has some funny scenes:

At 0:16, we can see a member endorsing their own kind of ion drink. Maybe they want to compete with TWICE on endorsing this product?

Look at 1:46. I find this quite funny as they made their own stylized noodle pack.

Other funny scenes related to it was on two members posing as eggs at 2:00.

Also, at 1:49 – 1:57, we can see some members sleeping at the rim of the cup. Maybe they see the noodles as kind of boring?

At 2:42, they wanted to prove that they can beat another well-known make-up brand.

Finally, at 2:01 – 2:18, they provided their outtakes. This best describes the title of their new lead song.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 1 point

If we will look at the music itself, this will merit attention from the media. However, owing to lack of popularity, this might not make it.

  1. Review by other sites – 3 points (updated)

We are now losing MV reviewers for this season.

First is Obsessed and Assessed, which stopped doing MV Reviews starting May, which I wonder as of this moment. Still, the last he/she reviewed was TWICE’s Fancy, and the last calendar posted was on May.

Second is KPopReviewed, who apologized for not posting many reviews today, due to delays and lack of time. I understand his/her situation. While the blogger finishes requirements for academics, I am finishing my monthly reports. Also, I will limit MV Reviews next month to focus more on misheard lyrics and Annual Blogsite Report. To the blogger, good luck on your final assessment!

We’ll update this once he/she makes it up. For now, no choice but to use our sole reviewer, TheBiasList, to rate this.

TheBiasList rated negatively the MV, noting that the title doesn’t live up to his expectations. It defined that the previous song was successfully executed, and that the present song robs all of possible potentials with the group.

He disliked the song upon initially listening to it. Primary reason was that being fun, it is not good to be shouted several times on the chorus, like a jackhammer pounding on the road.

Few highlights include the pre-chorus, which was a bit of fresh air, and the “addictive” second verse rap. Positive note was on the instrumentals. While this fits the group, it should have been improved further with various twists.

It ends with a note that while some will love it, but for him, that was the worst production in the whole of K-Pop for this year.

(Update: Since KPopReviewed came back, we are now factoring his/her review of previous songs we made earlier.)

The blogger agrees that the song is colorful, whimsical, and energetic, aptly justifiying the title. Also, the chorus stands out with its spiraling tunes, ending with “punchy” hooks everytime they shout “Fun!” These factors, among others, are the reasons why the blogger enjoys every part of the song.

It further describes the video as “cutesy” and “cool,” and loaded with commercial ads which he/she tries to define all of them.

Some points for improvement were on the instrumental break, which should have been lengthy.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

I find this music video very refreshing, full of energy, and full of fun. The music video holds true to its promise of describing the title very well.

As can be noticed, they easily defined fun as making fun out of various commercial ads they watched in Korea.

Considering that their instrumentals are simplified, I find it not too deafening.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares concepts with other groups – 5 points

This refers to 1:12 – 1:26, where they shared the dark scene plus rapping concept from MOMOLAND’s Bboom Bboom, where Daisy and JooE raps. They both feature it while rapping:

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 94.00% (Updated)

Final Words

I may have rated it high, but still they deserve this score. Had our sole reviewer rated it positively, and barring external factor (mainstream media), it would garner almost perfect score.

This rating reflects the fun vibe being shown to us, merits being considered. Hope this will also inspire fromis_9 members to improve themselves in the coming months.

WJSN (우주소녀) – Boogie Up: MV Review

For our music video review, we are featuring this time WJSN, with their newest song “Boogie Up”.

They have a dual name: WJSN and Cosmic Girls. For purposes of formality, we’ll opt for the former name. But as we discuss them, “Cosmic Girls” will be used.

Since summer is here, and the weather is favorable, would the author give favorable rating for them? You may watch their MV first before proceeding to the review proper:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

The storyline revolves on them in a room, engaging themselves to sleep together. Upon sleeping, they dream of going outside to various places.

1theK, in its official YouTube page, provided a storyline for this MV:

Summer is running with the blue sky, clear clouds and the members playing around the beach. Pure and mysterious and therefore more fascinating WJSN presents an unexpected season this time. This is a special new song of WJSN, which will be the background music of this summer.

Title track “Boogie Up” has the clear and refreshing charm of WJSN, who is going to spend the summer with roommates. The song develops fast with magnificently arrangement, providing a refreshing and comfortable relaxation instead of extreme exception and transformation. It is a uniquely charming party music stimulating the band’s cheerful energy and soft flow instead of the strong energy overwhelming the audiovisual side.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The summer theme is clearly featured throughout the whole video.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

We can see some moral lessons here, especially on friendship. Also obvious is on going out and enjoying the summer.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

Viewers will find some things featured that will benefit them. This is more on fitness.

At 1:37 – 1:38, where they feature skates…

At 1:59, where they featured basketball…

And at 2:48 – 2:49, where they featured parlor games:

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 10 points

Some scenes are funny enough to merit perfect score.

First at 0:31, where one pops a bubble gum.

Second is at 1:35 – 1:36, where the four members pose as bowling pins. These four “fall apart” upon being hit by basketball.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 1 point

I don’t see any compelling reason for it to be featured on TV and radio.

  1. Review by other sites – 5 points

TheBiasList noted that Cosmic Girls established their style that is “spacey” and “synth-dripped”. Get off that style, and see the girls suffer. This might be the case for them featuring summer, which the blogger doesn’t like.

The groove present is sustaining them throughout the whole song. On the music, it was very energetic, providing the well-known disco-type beat. For the verses, they define the lighter side of the girls “without totally abandoning” their style. The build of the instrumental hooks can be seen here, but it would have been stronger given an actual chorus.

The girls wonderfully made an impact with this video by following “energy over substance.”

(We’ll update this to factor another missed review of Boogie Up.)

KPopReviewed considers it to be his/her most favorite release, and desires to replay it. This is a “summer track with a retro sound.” The essentials that make one be amused are there, considering that it fits with Cosmic Girls’ image as young girls. Only pull-down factor for it was that it was typical.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

Look at 0:39, where we see how they sleep, arranged in a different way. This is the only case where we can see them sleeping like that.

One might notice that three of their members are not there in the MV. That’s the second time we see some members absent in MV. The reason is that they are promoting their own group in China, but still remain with the rest of Cosmic Girls. And their reason is very justifiable. Being the case, I will not take this as pull-down factor against them.

On outfits, I don’t have to rate it negatively. Since this is summer season, these outfits are appropriate. Dances can be learned more easily, as this revolves more on freestyle dance.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares concepts with other groups – 5 points

At 0:41 – 0:43, they share the fruits concept from Red Velvet in their song “Power Up”:

At 2:39 – 2:40, they drew inspiration from TWICE in “Dance The Night Away,” particularly on the clothes:

  • Striking similarities with other mainstream bands – 5 points

This refers to them at 1:29, while they are walking in a bridge. Seems that they shared this with Beatles in their famous pedestrian walk here:

Love Advice No. 104 (Lessons of Love)

Bilang bahagi ng ating pag-review sa lahat ng artikulo ng Love Advice, simple lang ang tanong: Ano ang leksyon na makukuha natin sa pag-ibig? Tingnan ang sagot dito:


Sa loob ng halos limang taon na tumatakbo ang love advice sa site na ito, at dahil isandaang artikulo na ang na-publish, kailangan nating huminto at mag-reflect muna kung ano ba ang dapat matutunan at ma-realize dito:

  • Love is risky, and can be very costly. Magastos, at mahirap ang umibig. Susugal ka talaga sa isang bagay, na hindi ka sigurado kung ibabalik din sa iyo ang pag-ibig. Alam ko na hindi ka basta-basta susugal sa pag-ibig kung hindi ka sigurado sa resulta.
  • Simplify the process. Kung alam mo na gusto ka niya, at gusto mo siya, aminin na ang feelings. Wala nang paliguy-ligoy pa. Saka na magpakipot kung ganoon. Kasi, kung magtataguan lang din ng feelings, ang daming masisirang relasyon. At ang daming masasayang na pag-ibig.
  • Maging realista pagdating sa pag-ibig. Iyan siguro ang hindi naiintindihan ng lalaki sa Love Advice No. 99. Iibig lang daw siya ulit, kung kaya niyang ibigay ang lahat. Pero sa totoo lang, kailangang magtira sa sarili.

Sa Love Advice No. 2, umaasa pa rin ang una na gusto siya ni guy, pero wala namang aksyon. Anong nangyari? Eh di wala rin.

Iyan siguro ang isang bagay na hindi taglay ng mga nag-eexpect na mag-top sa CPA Board Exam. Considering na ito ang pinakamahirap na exam, at sa tindi ng kompetisyon, iilan ang pinalad na mag-top dito.

  • Hindi natin sigurado ang bukas. Kahit sabihin na “almost perfect” na ang relationship, darating ang panahon na susubok sa tatag ninyong dalawa. Hindi mawawala ang mga pagsubok na iyan. That is part of your relationship. At ang mas masaklap pa, pwede itong humantong sa breakup pag di inagapan.
  • Huwag basta-basta papasok sa isang relasyon na hindi mo panghahawakan. Mukhang ito ang isang bagay na nakakalimutan ng babae sa Love Advice No. 20. Kung hindi pala siya sigurado sa present bf niya, dapat in the first place ay hindi niya sinagot si guy.

Ito rin ang isang bagay na nakakalimutan ng mga lalaki na hihingi ng sex, and after mabuntis ay iiwanan ang dalaga. Kung hindi nila kayang panghawakan ang relasyon, anuman ang mangyari sa kanila, huwag na silang pumasok pa dito. Refer to Love Advice No. 95 for further discussion.

  • Kailangang maging resourceful sa pag-ibig. Kung ito ay higit pa sa chocolates at flowers, ok lang. Pero may mga sitwasyon kung saan kailangan nating maging mas resourceful. Kung napasubo sa sitwasyon na di mo gusto, need mong gumawa ng paraan. Think out of the box. Halimbawa, kung ikaw ay pinapipili sa studies o boyfriend, puwede namang mag-lie low muna.

Puwedeng si bf muna ang tutustos sa pag-aaral mo. Puwede kang tulungan ni bf sa studies mo. So when the time comes na nakatupad ka sa obligasyon sa magulang, puwede mo na siyang balikan. Makakabawi ka pa sa kanya.

  • Maging kuntento sa pag-ibig. Tingnan ang Love Advice No. 6, kung saan di nakuntento ang lalaki sa kanyang girlfriend. Pero mas malala pa sa Love Advice No. 99, kasi ang babae naman ang di makuntento sa kanyang bf na todo-effort sa kanya.

Bakit ko ito sinasabi? Ang daming nasasayang na pag-ibig. Marami pa rin ang naghahanap ng pag-ibig, pero di pa rin nila ito matagpuan. Samantalang ikaw na may boyfriend o girlfriend, ay higit na masuwerte.

  • There’s no such thing as “love at first sight,” pero puwedeng magka-crush sa kanya at first sight. Ang pag-ibig kasi ay nabubuo sa pagdaan ng panahon. Di tulad sa crush concept kung saan puwedeng magka-crush agad.
  • Kung siya ang tipong one of the kind, huwag mo nang pakawalan pa. Iyan siguro ang bagay na hindi naiintindihan ni Althea nang sinungitan niya si Chris (Love Advice No. 93). At iyan din ang pinagsisihan ni gal nang iwan niya ang lalaki (Love Advice No. 50). Mind you, mahirap maghanap ng lalaki na mabait, responsable, at masipag. Same goes sa mga lalaki.
  • Kung feel mo naman na nagseselos ka, try mong akitin ang lalaki. O haplusin din paminsan-minsan. Actually, effort mo na din iyan on your part. May mga tips akong binigay para diyan.
  • Kailangan ng mga babae ang matinding tapang para i-express ang feelings sa lalaki. Iyon ay kung gusto niya talaga si guy.

Kaya nga sinasabi ko ito: Pag di ka nag-open up ng feelings kay guy, tulad ng ginawa ni Kisses, wala ring mangyayari. Same goes sa mga lalaki.

  • Face the possibility na iwasan ka ng taong gusto mo, pag inamin mo ang feelings sa kanya. Maging totoo tayo dito, dahil hindi natin kontrolado ang emosyon nila. Mahirap timbangin ito lalo’t malaki ang risk na masira ang friendship niyo dahil lang sa pag-amin.
  • Bago makipag-break, “isipin kung kaya mo siyang makita na may kasamang iba.” Kasi sa totoo lang, suwerte na kung may babalikan ka. Pero hindi laging ganoon ang kaso. Baka pagbalik mo ay wala na ang feelings niya sa iyo. At baka pagbalik mo ay may kasama na siyang iba, na mas maganda pa ang hitsura at/o ugali sa iyo.
  • “If you can’t handle him/her at the worst, you don’t deserve him/her at the best.” Kung alam niya na sinamahan mo siya sa hirap, hindi ka niya iiwanan. At mas lalong titindi ang pag-ibig niya sa iyo.
  • Kung hindi kayang i-handle ang relationship, magpatulong sa magulang o kaibigan. Lalo pa’t kung hindi ka pa mature para sa pag-ibig. Iyan siguro ang dapat ginawa ng babae sa Love Advice No. 20, dahil nakikita ko na mali-mali ang mga desisyon niya pagdating sa pakikipagrelasyon.
  • Kailangan ng matinding pagpipigil lalo na pag sex ang usapan. Anong ibig sabihin? Sa usapang pang-kanto, ilagay sa lugar ang libog. Hindi yung tipong pag nag-init na ay magdedemand sa dalaga na makipag-sex.
  • Isa pang bagay: Ang pag-aasawa ay hindi parang kanin, na kapag napaso ay iluluwa na lang. Iyan ang isang bagay na madalas nakakalimutan natin ngayon. Kaya, hindi nakakagulat ang dami ng mga bata na kapos sa kalinga ng magulang, single moms/dads, o galing sa broken families.

CLC (씨엘씨) – ME (美): (MV Review)

For our next video review, we will feature for the first time CLC.

I only knew the group when they featured their song “NO” for this year. Their title was quite funny, as some commented that it was their response to TWICE’s “Yes or Yes.” I illustrated how these two songs fit together in my recent misheard lyric.

After their modest success in their first song, here comes the new lead song called “ME”. From the title itself, we can see the difference. Instead of displaying the Chinese character for “me,” (我) they chose to feature a different character (美).

The Chinese character means “beauty”. It was the same word being used as Chinese name for the United States (美国,literally “Beautiful Country”). This song continues to define their own version of beauty. But anyway, would they retain the momentum they had with their previous song “No”? The answer must be Yes or Yes. Haha. But you may enjoy first their MV before reviewing them.


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

While I haven’t understood clearly their storyline, they provided the same for their video in the description.

1theK, in its official YouTube page, provided a storyline on the MV:

CLC, who gave a strong impact to the public through “No” with the band’s confident and charismatic performance on January, tries to perfectly position themselves with new song “ME (美)”. CLC’s new song “ME (美)” refers to the theme of ‘beautiful me’ using the English word ‘Me’ and the same pronunciation of Chinese character ’ meaning beauty, in a whimsical way. This song with the strong sound and beat as well as the strongly addictive refrain that reverses as the song proceeds shows CLC’s confident fascination to captivate everyone with their individuality and beauty.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The group featured consistenly the art and the crowded spaces concept. Also, their theme revolves on their definition of beauty.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

From what we can see in the whole video, they try to impart confidence. This is needed, especially when dealing with so many people.

Another moral lesson that might not be noticed is on different views when it comes to beauty. Somehow, the goat painted in white and black represents one painted (viewed) as beautiful while the other one has not. This might tell us on how to handle situations like these.

(And actually, beauty standards in Korea, though quite believable, are not gospel truth. CLC perfectly defined this lesson in “No” and this song: “I’m beautiful since I was born”/”태어날 때부터 아름다움” )

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

With many people using gadgets to play games, somehow they will tell viewers to try traditional games like this domino. This is featured at 2:38.

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 6 points

At 1:40, a member tries to put out fire by blowing instead of using fire extinguishers. Maybe she has powers to put out these?

Other than that, I did not see other funny scenes in the video.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points

I gave this rating, as I am not certain this will make it to radio and TV.

  1. Review by other sites – 4 points

TheBiasList contrasted CLC’s previous song with this one, noting the latter as a “diminished” version of them. This can also be compared with 4Minute’s “Hate”, particularly on the music.

Positive remarks were on the instrumentals, particularly on the percussions and “beat drops”, which goes together with their voices on the last seconds.

Negative points include their beat drop which was more than noisy, and focuses less on substance. The blogger also was not impressed with the song, and that the verses are bound to be forgotten. The song was also simplified to the point that it does not jive with various songs playing in the background.

KPopReviewed was excited on the group’s comeback, noting that they sticked to the “edgy” genre which made them known. This time, they matured on this specialty.

The most “memorable” part is on the instrumentals being played on the chorus, reminding also of 4Minute’s song. This is also a “wake-up call” in its own right, since the beats are quite “explosive”. He/she also liked their hooks and vocal sections, and noted that it would further stand out had they included thicker raps in the music. Meanwhile, the red stroke of paint was the best, as though simple, it speaks much.

Negative points were on the blandness of the song, which does not reflect the intense feeling they want to show. It was also not “edgy,” especially if we will listen to their acapellas. It lacks the sensual side of their choreography unlike their previous songs like “NO” or “Black Dress”.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

Like what we discussed, they described the beauty as two faced, as seen on a goat in black and white. Being destroyed signifies that the days of defining what is and what is not beautiful are over.

On the visuals, I understand that they are featuring different aspects of beauty. However, this doesn’t have a coherent storyline. In fact, I haven’t understand as of this moment why they have to feature red paint. Maybe it represents the red lipstick?

I might agree with other reviewers. The song had less impact for me, unlike their song “No”. While the song has repeatedly stuck on my head, I doubt if this will be the case on “Me”.

Aside from that, it seems that Seungyeon gave way for her other members to stand out, especially on vocals. This is apparently the case if you compare her performance with that of “No”.

Most outstanding members for me were Sorn, who maintained her confidence in the two vids,…

…and another one is Yeeun, who lately caught my attention at 3:22. I also felt attracted to the latter, albeit with short hair, after watching her as emcee in MTV’s “The Show.”

On the outfits, I have to rate it at four points, as it was quite revealing. This can be seen at the start of the video. Meanwhile, one point lacking was on their music not being exciting enough. Three points for music since it was deafening. Four points are given on the dance being easily understood, since the difficult dance revolves on 2:20 – 2:24.

  1. Other factors
  • Features special effects – 5 points

Look at 3:06, where a member tips down dominoes to feature their title.

  • Shares concepts with other groups – 5 points

The dark room concept (2:32) is shared with Dreamcatcher in their song Piri.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 85.22%

Final Words

CLC’s latest performance in MTV’s “The Show” convinced me to revise my original rating upward.

The song is not bad enough. On a personal note, I also liked their daring moves and their execution of choreography. I see that they are more confident doing it unlike their previous song.

Since they released the song “ME,” I made a running joke about it.

CLC: Me?

Also CLC: No.

Some points need to be improved here. This is more on defining the storyline and simplifying their dances. Except for these, they made a good choice on positioning themselves to the genre they want. It is hoped that the review will let them take it as a challenge to outdo themselves every comeback.

Love Advice No. 103 (Otso Diretso, Eleksyon, atbp.)

Tatalakayin sa espesyal na artikulong ito ang tungkol sa pagkatalo ng Otso Diretso at ng Partido Liberal. Kahit bihirang talakayin ng may-akda ang pulitika, ito naman ay bilang “pagmamahal” sa kanila, at pagmamahal na rin sa bayan.

Matatandaan na wala ni isa sa Otso Diretso ang naproklama bilang senador. In essence, “natalo” sila. Ano kaya ang iba pang dahilan kung bakit “olats” ang grupo, at paano kaya sila makakabangon dito?


Naiproklama na ang mga Senador. Pero wala ni isa sa Otso Diretso ang napasama sa listahan. Bakit kaya?

Ipinagmamalaki ng LP na sila diumano ay para sa “good governance”. Pero hindi eh.

Not listening

Una sa lahat, di sila nakikinig. No response din sila. Nag-offer din dati si Binay na maging negotiator kay Misuari sa kasagsagan ng Zamboanga siege, pero hindi sila nakinig. Isa pang isyu ay ang sa tanim bala. Mayroon bang rumesponde sa insidenteng ito? Wala. Tuloy napapahiya tayo sa ibang bansa. Isa pa: Basura sa Canada. May nakikinig baga sa mga environmentalists? Wala. May nagreklamo noon sa nangyari sa Boracay, pero nasaan ang kanilang response? Wala din.

This is not to mention their hypocrisy. They want good governance, pero ayaw nilang matuto sa sistema na ginagamit sa ibang bansa. Isa pa, hindi nila kayang panindigan ang pagiging role model at role leader sa mga tao. Halimbawa, ayaw nila sa political dynasty. Pero bakit pinatakbo sina Tanada at Diokno sa Senado? Di ba?

Can’t relate

Hindi sila maka-relate sa masa. Sa katunayan nga ay malaki ang panalo nila sa mga “elitist rich-gated communities.” Samantalang ang nagpanalo sa mga senador ngayon ay galing sa Class D at E, o mga nasa masa. Tingnan si Bong Revilla. Bakit siya nanalo kahit hindi nag-effort? Alam niya kung saan huli ang kiliti ng masa.

Wala silang Exhibit A na tinatawag. Tulad nina Duterte sa Davao. O mga Marcos sa Ilocos. O ang mga Cayetano sa Taguig. What’s the point? Kung hindi nila kayang paunlarin ang kanilang mga bayan, paano pa kaya pag nasa Senado na sila? (Lucas 16:10)

Dose of own medicine

Isa pang dahilan ay marami sa kanila ang bagito. Walang alam. Tulad ni Chel Diokno. Sabi niya, wala daw ginawa si Duterte except sa smoking ban. Tapos after matalo, may nagpost pa nga dati (now deleted) na sumasakay siya ng taxi, na hihingi ng suporta dahil sa “simpleng” buhay niya, hindi dahil sa magaling siyang lider. Kung ayaw din niya sa pagbabago, mahihirapan siyang manalo bilang Senador o kahit pa Presidente.

Panghuli ay dahil ayaw nilang baguhin ang sistema na dahilan ng pagkatalo nila. Presidential systems? More on name recall. Aminin, sino ang mas “kilala”? Sina Aquino at Roxas. Ang mga tulad nina Diokno, Tanada, Hilbay, at iba pa ay naiiwan na lang. Dahil hindi rin naman sila “kilala”.

Hindi pa rin sila natuto hanggang ngayon. So, they faced the consequences. Bakit? History repeats itself, o tulad ng sabi ni Sir Ambeth Ocampo, “We repeat history.”

Low standards?

Sa unang tingin, parang mababaw lang ang standards na nai-set ko noon sa mga kandidato. Pero kung susuriing mabuti, may pangmatalagang epekto ito sa bansa at sa atin. What standards do I set from Senators to Councilors?

  • Unang-una, dapat suportahan ang panukalang Federalismo, kahit pa sila’y pro-Duterte o anti-Duterte. Sa ganitong paraan, marami silang matutulungang kababayan, kahit na hindi sila mag-todo effort. Kung hindi agree dito, at least sa dalawa pang reporma (Parliamentary/Pro-FDI).

Dito nagkamali ang Otso Diretso nang tinabla nila ang suporta para dito. Iyon sana ang magbibigay boses sa kanila, lalo sa Parliamento. Isip ko tuloy, wala talaga silang maitutulong sa bansa. Basta putak nang putak tungkol sa mga problema ng bayan, pero wala silang maibibigay na long-lasting solutions para dito.

  • Sa mga baguhang senador, kung handa silang matuto. Ito ang isang bagay na taglay ni Bato dela Rosa. Kahit siya’y may Doctorate degree na, gusto pa rin niyang matuto pagdating sa duties ng isang Senador. Ganoon din si Doc Willie Ong. Kahit na doktor siya, at wala siya talagang alam sa pulitika, handa pa rin siyang matuto.

Sa kaso ng LP, wala ni isa sa kanila ang handang matuto sa magandang sistema (FedParlFDI) na ginagamit sa ibang bansa. Tamad mag-research, samantalang may Google naman. So, no choice. Kailangan silang tablahin dito.

Dito pa lang sa mga criteria na ito, marami na tayong pagpipiliang Senador. Lalabas na sobra sila sa labindalawa.

Final Words

Liberals must learn from their mistakes. They should be the ones pushing for reforms. Makikinabang sila diyan sa bandang huli.

May naalala lang ako. Last April, sinabi ng isang may-edad na babae na ayaw niya kay Bong Go. Ano nga naman ang alam niya sa Senado, sabi niya. Idinagdag pa niya na iboboto niya ang Otso Diretso dahil magaling daw. Sa ilang senador, si Bato ang pipiliin. Dito pa lang ay wala sa hulog ang sinasabi niya.

Dito ko itinama ang maling pahayag niya. Tried to be calm, pero kailangang banatan dahil mali talaga siya sa kasong ito. May experience sa legislative side si Go. Pero ayaw paawat ang lola niyo, at kung anu-ano na ang sinasabi sa dating assistant ng Pangulo. Ngayong talo ang LP, ewan ko na lang kung nagrereklamo pa siya sa resulta. Mirisi! 😛

Ngayon, kung hindi makikinig ang LP sa mga suhestiyon, bahala na sila sa buhay nila.

Auditing Problem No. 2: KAPA Community Ministry

Kamakailan lamang ay napabalita ang pagsara ng KAPA. Ito ay sa gitna ng diumano’y “scam” sa mga miyembro nito. Ang rason ng Securities and Exchange Commission: Marami ang nagrereklamo sa naturang institusyon. Nangako diumano ang grupo ng 30% “return” kada buwan bilang kapalit ng kanilang “donations.” Habang isinusulat ito, may mga galit pag itinutuwid sila sa financial literacy, at may mga galit pa kay Pang.

ONEUS (원어스) – Twilight (태양이 떨어진다): MV Review

For our next boygroup, we will now review ONEUS, with their song Twilight.

Just a little bit of info, ONEUS is a newly-debuted group consisting of six members: Ravn, Seoho, Leedo, Keonhee, Hwanwoong, and Xion. They are under RBW Entertainment, the same agency who handles MAMAMOO.

For this year, they released their song called Valkyrie, in which their upbeat was very exciting. Now, with their second song, would they retain the momentum they had with their previous song? We will see it later, but you may watch first their MV before proceeding to review proper:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

The storyline revolves on them going inside palace, and afterwards they dance.

While inside, they are figuring on what’s inside it, and viewing the artworks there. The last phase of the video tells that being in control, they are now changing the weather.

1theK, in its official YouTube page, provided a storyline to the MV:

RBW’s new boy band ONEUS releases their mini album “RAISE US”, the second story of “US” series. The mini album “RAISE US” has the meaning that ‘it raises us.’ The previous debut album “LIGHT US” meant ‘ONEUS created with the light shone by people, and their music’ while this album means ‘ONEUS who will take a leap forward based on the light shone by people.’

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

They consistently feature artworks as their theme for Twilight.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 1 point 

Sorry. I haven’t seen any moral lesson here in the MV.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

Viewers can learn more about the artworks made, especially during the Renaissance. This is played throughout the whole video.

Aside from that, they featured the beauty of nature at 2:31 – 2:34.

Other Matters

  1. Illustrates gloominess – 8 points

Recently changed this criterion to fit their not being too happy.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points
  1. Review by other sites – 4 points

TheBiasList noted that K-Pop is going to have more follow-up tracks, since this is a transition from spring to summer. This time, it is a battle on multiple comebacks, especially for new groups like BVNDIT and Cherry Bullet.

The blogger noticed that Twilight and Valkyrie shares “similar guitar loop and dynamic percussion.”

As with other new groups, the second doesn’t match or even surpass its first song. Another bad factor was on the music having its “deep end”, which does not end well overall. The chorus, on the other hand, has less variation, which would help “to keep the momentum going.”

KPopReviewed sees Twilight as “nice” sequel to their debut song, and rated favorably the instrumentals. This is the case on their guitary tune, thumps, and raspiness. The vocals were also a big hit, especially that they made an impact over the combination of their voices. This stood out on the end of pre-chorus.

On the visuals, they also fared well, particularly on featuring a castle.

Added point was on their fierce choreography, which showcased the backflip.

Negative points were on lack of energy on the verses to make it more memorable. Added to that is their lack of certain storyline, as they are “serious” in interacting with the video’s contents.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

They placed the music in the appropriate context. Them being in a lonely, sad place calls for sad tunes. If not sad tunes, it must be slow enough but equally exciting.

On the visuals, the video was quite dark, partly due to their outfits, and partly due to being inside the hall.

Broken mirror (1:15), which represents broken love that cannot be mend anymore.

Cage (1:05), which represents their desire to be free.

Diamond (1:25), representing luster.

Ring (1:26), which is traditionally associated with marriage, a forever with partner.

On music, I have to rate it at only four points, as it is almost exciting. The music, meanwhile, is deafening on the chorus. For dance, I have to rate it at three points as some steps cannot be learned easily.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares some concepts from other groups – 5 points

ONEUS shared some concept from BTS, particularly on the latter’s song Blood, Sweat, and Tears. This was on featuring artworks, and themselves dancing behind these.

  • Features the 1theK logo – 5 points

ONEUS is part of 1theK group.

The logo can be seen at 4:02 at the castle, before the video ends.

This can also be seen at the beginning and end of the video, at the lower right side.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 88.18%

Final Words

This year, we see an increase in number of new groups. At the same time, existing groups are taking a rest on their previous laurels or making an indefinite hiatus. This situation gives the former chances to feature themselves in the sea of K-Pop.

It is recommended that they also stick to the genre which will make them know further. Them being consistent on their genre on the first two songs is a great move. Hope this review helps them in their desire to improve on their next comeback.

News and Tidbits (June 14, 2019)

We haven’t recovered yet with MOMOLAND plaguing with various issues, and here comes again the dating issue with Nancy. Rumors tell that she is dating with Q from THE BOYZ:

 

Fearless forecast: MOMOLAND’s next comeback will feature only six members. Or it will feature all except Nancy.

The agency should think twice on reacting again to these kind of issues. Without her, their next project would not be popular here in PH. Aside from that, other groups will take over their lead. More and more groups are taking the stage, and MOMOLAND will further go to their pre-Bboom Bboom level, if they don’t handle these issues properly.

***

Jennie was bashed over her being sick at BLACKPINK’s fanmeeting in various places, especially in PH. Those bashers conveniently forgot that somehow, even if she was sick, Jendeukie managed to be present in various events with Blinks. With her status, and if given chances to be on noontime TV show, she will surely be present there.

 

 

 

They made themselves known to Filipinos in their previous concert in Manila, so no excuses or apologies are necessary. And since this is just a fanmeet, Jennie can take a rest if needed.

***

Though not a fan, I felt pity on B.I from iKON. He left the group and YG Entertainment over the drugs issue.

 

 

If some artists under YG Ent are involved in various issues like these, then there must be problem with the latter.

***

Speaking of MOMOLAND, I took a screenshot of them being featured in 1theK YouTube page (last May 12):

As I view it, I can’t help but feel sad for them.

***

So far, the latest songs that are playing on radio were BTS’ Boy With Luv, BLACKPINK’s Kill This Love, BTS’ Idol, and MOMOLAND’s Baam.

***

This blog’s Fifth Annual Report will be launched next month or on August. Similarly, MV Reviews will be limited or suspended for the whole of July to finish misheard lyrics.

We are also going to limit full English misheard lyrics due to lack of time. Again, only select songs will be misheard.

***

Idalangin din sana natin ang paggaling ni Eddie Garcia, na ngayon ay comatose pa rin.

Nakilala si Eddie Garcia sa pagganap niya sa pelikula at telebisyon sa maraming taon. Latest na Ang Probinsyano. Hindi pa rin nawawala ang kanyang kalibre bilang aktor. Dahil isa lang ang sikreto niya: Tuloy lang sa trabaho.

Lumalabas na may problema dito ang GMA lalo sa safety.

***

Nawala na sa Facebook ang page na “The Same Video of Irene Dancing Different Songs.”

Bakit nangyari ito? More on admin issues. May nangyaring takeover sa admin position.

***

Regarding Miss Sass and the KAPA issue:

Siguro, kailangan munang hintayin na humupa ang isyu bago siya magpaliwanag. Mahihirapan siyang magpaliwanag sa mga taong galit sa isyu. Kahit kung tutuusin ay tama siya.

Nakakalungkot lamang na ang dami pa ring nagmamarunong pagdating sa finances. Ayaw mapagsabihan. Bakit di na lang sila ilagay sa Dept. of Finance o sa Dept. of Budget and Management? Baka sila na ang makaka-solve sa budget deficit ng gobyerno.

Kung matigas pa rin ang ulo nila, better for Sass to let them go. Just in case na magkaproblema, wala silang sisisihin kundi ang sarili nila.

The closure of KAPA is just a tip of the iceberg, at mauulit ang ganitong senaryo kung walang long-term solution para diyan.

Lovelyz (러블리즈) – When We Were Us (그시절우리가사랑했던우리): MV Review

We are now going to do a review of Lovelyz with their song When We Were Us.

As can be noticed, their agency Woolim Entertainment and 1theK provided different titles for this song. While in Woolim itself, the title was Beautiful Days, in 1theK it is titled as When We Were Us. Most reviews opt for the former title. But for simplicity, we will opt for the latter title.

I only came across Lovelyz when I was about to make a misheard lyric last year. This group focuses on drama genre, that is not too slow and not too emotional, but totally exciting in itself.

They need to be featured more in the sea of K-Pop, hence, this MV review. Hope this will help them become relevant amidst so many comebacks. You may watch first their video before proceeding to review:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

The storyline revolves on how they cherish memories, and leaving bad memories behind.

1theK, in its YouTube page, provided a short storyline for this:

Title track ‘When We Were Us (Beautiful Days)’ was arranged to fit the season with the cool and refreshing sound by maintaining the existing color of Lovelyz. The charming synth sound and the sentimental voice of the girl band was expressed with the lyrics about the most beautiful moments, showing the emotional color of Lovelyz.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The soft light theme is consistently featured in the whole video.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

The moral lesson that can be seen in this video is on reminiscing memories, and welcoming every morning as if we own the future.

Added moral lesson that might not be noticed is when a member waters the plants. This represents relationships that must be nurtured everyday to grow. Otherwise, it will wither and die.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

Viewers might find historical value on old cameras, as featured in 0:40 – 0:42.

They might also find the same with hard copy of pictures at 2:19 – 2:21. This lets us recollect on how our parents and grandparents collect pictures they take. It is given that while we can take pictures and collect it instantly, our parents had to be patient when dealing with these kinds.

Other Matters

  1. Ability of the song to make one reflect – 7 points

Recently changed this criterion in order to fit well with the slow nature of the song. Being the case, this is seen on members sitting and thinking, telling viewers to do the same.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 1 points

Pardon for the score, as I am certain that this won’t make it to TV and radio.

  1. Review by other sites – 5 points

KPopReviewed noticed that no news of the girls has been heard since their previous song. With summer fast approaching, it is expected that many artists will release tracks for this season.

Positive side for the group include their “refreshing” tones and light scenes. Lovelyz also struck the balance between their trademark soft songs with so-called “retro synth-pop.” Another positive aspect is on their performance, which is more “feminine”.

It also made an observation that it anchors to the past tracks, which may be “intentional”, particularly on the solar system rolling, and a member holding pictures. However, downside, the music might not be worth remembering when looked upon as a whole.

TheBiasList appreciated Woolim Ent’s efforts “to curate music that stays true to its artists’ personas.” That is, they refused to sway to popular tracks, and sticked to what would define their group well.

The blogger favorably rated the group, appreciating their cute and popular music, recalling their throwback to their debut. Lovelyz dealing with this kind of genre stood the test of time. Even if without greater impact, it is still valuable as a “solid addition to an incredibly distinct singles run.”

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

I find the tune somewhat similar to their previous song Lost N Found. Just listen to the chorus.

Honestly, at the bridge, I can’t help but cry. I don’t know why, but the tune gave me a painful feeling.

I also find the music video and the music very calm and refreshing. Hope K-Pop fans might consider adding these, as the group presents a different side of the said genre.

On dances, I have to rate it less one point, as they lacked the exciting factor, which is supposed to keep the MV more alive.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares concepts from GFRIEND – 5 points

As to GFRIEND, they drew inspiration from their soft light concept and memories concept. It can be seen throughout the video. On the soft light, GFRIEND has the darker side, while Lovelyz has brighter side.

Another thing noticed is they both have a cake, where one member blows it.

  • Shares resemblance with other groups – 5 points

At 0:31, Mijoo resembles GFRIEND’s Sowon or MAMAMOO’s Solar:

At 0:48 and 3:44, Jin resembles Wendy of Red Velvet:

And at 1:46, Yein resembles Minju of IZ*ONE.

  • Features the 1theK logo – 5 points

Lovelyz is part of 1theK group.

Talk about having a worldwide K-Pop content, and ability to unite different agencies. They did not only feature it at 1:17 – 1:20, but also at the end of the video. This is presented as a small icon at lower right side:

Other groups under this family can follow suit, if they don’t want to feature it everywhere in their MVs.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 93.04%

Final Words

Lovelyz presents a different side of K-Pop, particularly on the genre they chose.

This rating reflects the favorable response from reviewers, and I hope this will inspire the group to do more.

It would be better for them not to change their specialty, which will help them be distinguished with other groups we have now. Meanwhile, it’s just on timing, and time will come that they will be further recognized in this genre they chose.

GOT7 (갓세븐) – ECLIPSE: MV Review

We will now review for the first time GOT7, with their newest song Eclipse.

While we dealt with them in our previous misheard lyrics, this time we will review their first release this year. Let’s relax first on their music before we review it:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 4 points

The video tells of different phases of the moon at chorus. It also features endless stars and breaking glass. These things imply that they are in a constant, endless state of war with love, and that they expect that it would be dark and sad.

They lacked one point, as the storyline must be clearer to understand.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The themes GOT7 consistently featured were on astronomical objects and on glasses.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 1 point

Pardon for the score. I don’t see any moral lesson featured here.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

Viewers could benefit from the knowledge shown by the boy group.

First is on learning different phases of the moon.

Second is on astronomy, where they feature stars and meteor showers.

These things might spark interest for viewers to pursue astronomy.

Other Matters

  1. Illustrates sadness in their song – 7 points

Changed this criteria to fit the song’s sad nature. As can be seen throughout the video, it was dark most of the time. This carries well their title which signifies the low point of love, or relationship.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 2 points

I suppose that it would not be picked by media, due partly to their lack of popularity, and partly due to the nature of the song.

  1. Review by other sites – 3 points

KPopReviewed applauded the group for its “powerful” chorus, camera angles, and dance breaks. It was a good move when they sing the chorus. Not-so-good points include their forgettable verses and their rap which lacked greater impact. As a whole, it was their strong release for this year.

Further reading on the comments reveal that some are not impressed, for the main reason is on MV sharing some looks and concepts with other groups under JYP Ent.

TheBiasList told that GOT7 has been on the complaints list for several years. Though averse to bass, this leans closely to rock and it did not put off the song’s momentum. Added to that was the “meandering melody” that fares to almost none, common in other popular songs.

Positive notes focus on “trendy instrumentation”, and the refrain that keeps the whole song upbeat with group’s vocals.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

As a whole, I find it exciting, though this is a sad song by nature.

While I was not impressed on how the production played with the camera in some parts (as I felt dizzy looking on it), they nevertheless carried their performance well.

On some points, full points were given to colors as they chose colors that best describes sadness. Meanwhile, one point lacking on music was that it was quite deafening.

  1. Other factors
  • Goes back to previous songs – 5 points

This refers to 3:33, where they drew inspiration from their song Hard Carry.

  • Special effects are featured – 5 points

They made a good move featuring the moon in a different way. At 1:55 – 2:01 and 3:39 till end, it can be seen that the moon blocks the view of the sky from a member’s view.

  • Shows a bit of science – 5 points

Gravity is featured in the video, at 2:11 – 2:23, where furnitures are sliding down. This may be considered when constructing unusual houses.

  • Shares inspiration from other groups – 5 points

At 2:39 – 2:43, GOT7 might have been inspired by the hand-blindfold step from BTS in their song Blood, Sweat, and Tears. Meanwhile, the members holding with each other gets inspiration also from BTS in their song DNA.

Cherry Bullet (체리블렛) – Really Really (네가참좋아): MV Review

This time, it’s Cherry Bullet’s Really Really that’s ready for our music video review.

Just a bit on info, Cherry Bullet was one of the new groups created this year, with members named Haeyoon, Yuju, Mirae, Bora, Jiwon, Kokoro, Remi, Chaerin, Linlin, and May. They are all under FNC Entertainment, the same agency that handles AOA, CNBlue, and N.Flying.

At first, I am confusing the group’s name with the song Cherry Bomb, as they are both cherries. Haha. Anyway, I was excited to do a review of it, since they immediately made a comeback song after their debut. Seems like they are catching up with other groups when it comes to attention.

Sorry also for not reviewing their debut song, as at that time I was doing trial of MV reviews in this site. Since our reviews fared well, this we will continue on their second song. You may watch first their performance here before proceeding to review proper:

Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

The video revolves on the girls making a game in a beautiful place. The game then calls for different stages, which they must surpass on every journey. The final stage is on shooting the skull signs, which the three girls did with ease. It ends with the girls converting a big heart to a cherry, telling that the group has a big heart.

1theK, in its official YouTube page, provided a storyline for this song:

Lovely and energetic girl band Cherry Bullet begins a young love adventure game.

Second single ‘LOVE ADVENTURE’ shows the way how Cherry Bullet becomes aware of love in various ways. Title track ‘Really Really’ is a tropical house-based modern pop, expressing the confident energy of the band by honestly saying that ‘I like you a lot!’ to the loved one.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The themes they featured consistently were on summer, games, and Wonderland themes.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

This is seen at 2:22 – 2:26, where they shoot arrows to skull signs. After being shot, these signs became hearts. This impliedly shows the value of turning bad into something good:

Instead of evading the signs, they faced it and shot it. As a result, they made something good.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

The game concept girls featured can help spark interest on creating new games (even for desktop or Android).

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 8 points

The funny moment focuses on Yuju holding a bow. After releasing the arrow, look at how she reacted. Maybe she only played it once?

Second is on 0:56 where Haeyoon supposedly argued with Remi, and then left.

Though by itself was enjoyable, I didn’t give full points, as they did not add more funny scenes in the MV.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points

I doubt if this will be picked up by radio and TV stations.

  1. Review by other sites – 5 points

KPopReviewed made a comparison with Really Really and Q&A. It noted that the new track did not continue the momentum possessed by their debut song. Aside from the fact that it lacked factor/s to make it shine, particularly on the chorus.

By its own, the song is cute, fun, bright, and also bubbly. As a whole, it is just as okay but it didn’t go well as compared to its previous song.

The blogger also noted the technology and the “futuristic concept” used in the video.

TheBiasList reviewed the debut song as “bright” and “rhythmic.” But the test lies on their second song, which is very cheerful.

Positive notes lie on their good vibes as their theme. Further review reveals that the video expressed their bubbliness and energy. The blogger particularly enjoyed the final thirty seconds, and noticed that no one hypes itself among the rest.

On the negative side, the chorus made lesser impact than the pre-chorus. It is because the former only repeats the same line. The climax, which would give the video a greater hit, was “little too late.” Points for further improvement include the verses, which should have drawn inspiration from that of TWICE.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

I see it as a follow-up of their debut song Q and A. Why? They just carried over the game concept in their comeback song.

This music video shows clearly the borderline between imagination (games) and reality (the place itself).

They also show the borderline between maturity (when it comes to dance and how they act) and cute concepts present in the video (on games and how they play it).

They also injected cuteness in the video, in which Kokoro (0:28) and Jiwon (1:07) stood out for me in this case.

While Haeyoon stood out for me in Q and A (in terms of her projection and performance), this time it’s Yuju.

I understood clearly the message when they are trying to convert a big heart to a big cherry. They are implying that they (Cherry Bullet) have a big heart.

On music, I find it deafening throughout the whole video. No choice but to rate it three points. Dances can be learned easily on the chorus, except on shuffling of feet.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares concepts with other groups – 5 points

At 2:22 – 2:26, the trio shares the bow and arrow concept with BOL4 in their song “Bom”.

  • Features the 1theK logo – 5 points

Cherry Bullet is part of 1theK group.

Talk about worldwide K-Pop content, and the ease of searching videos of different groups. After MOMOLAND’s I’m So Hot, I haven’t seen any MV I reviewed or misheard that features the logo, till Cherry Bullet came up with this.

The logo can be noticed at 2:36 – 2:38 and 2:49 – 2:50, where the girls are shooting cherries at the big heart. It can also be seen at the lower right as a small icon, at the end of the video.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 93.64%

Final Words

Cherry Bullet is being consistent on drawing game concepts to entertain us.

When it comes to views, the first week seems to be fruitful. On the first week, it got more than a million views. By projecting the rate, somehow it can surpass its debut song on views alone.

Some points for improvement must be emphasized here. This is more on adding funny moments, so as to lift the mood of listeners. Second is on their music, which must not be too deafening. Also on dance, as they have to simplify it a bit further.

Other than these things, they fared well in their chosen genre. Hope this will be also a good start for them in their succeeding journeys.

Weki Meki (위키미키) – Picky Picky: MV Review

We are on our another way featuring Weki Meki with their song Picky Picky.

Just to give a little background, they are all from Fantagio Entertainment, which also handles ASTRO and Hello Venus. The members are Suyeon, Elly, Yoojung, Doyeon, Sei, Lua, Rina, and Lucy.

Since Yoojung and Doyeon are from I.O.I, I felt some link in the MV with the former MV of I.O.I (Dream Girls). As we go on further, we will see what’s inside the MV and the girl crush concept. But before going on, you may watch first their MV:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points.

The music video starts with the girls on a bus, going to school. As they are in the class, they are striving to become outstanding students in the campus. Although their science experiments (academic) were but failures, the girls still find ways to realize their dream through music (extra curricular activities).

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The theme consistently features campus vibe throughout the video.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

Just like with DreamNote’s recent MV, they feature the value of cleanliness, at 2:06 – 2:12. This happened when they are cleaning the old room, where they later discovered unused instruments.

Another moral lesson is on teamwork, at 2:21 – 2:35, where they spend effort and time to finish their music practice.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

They deserve a perfect score for this.

First of all is on their scientific experiments, at 1:02. Hope this inspires viewers to do the same, considering that most of progress in science and technology lies on these experiments.

Second is on instruments at 2:14, where they featured different kinds, and on how to play it.

Finally is on featuring the tennis game at 1:38. They are implicitly telling viewers to go out and exercise.

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 10 points

The experiment scene is short, but funny enough to merit perfect score.

This is more on how the girls reacted when they made a failed experiment, and when they got reprimanded on their act. I find it funny how they reacted by pointing fingers with each other at 1:20.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 1 point

I don’t see if mainstream media will pick this song in the coming months.

  1. Review by other sites – 4 points

KPopReviewed noted that the group continues their “girl crush” theme that defined them.

While the chorus was “nice,” it didn’t have any impact at all in relation with the whole track. The vocals and verses as well are difficult to remember. Added to the negative side was on the overuse of highschool concepts and their aegyo.

As a whole, the blogger enjoyed the rhyming phrase and described it as “addictive.” It also enjoyed the type of energy and choreography being shown in the video.

TheBiasList viewed the group as a shadow of other girl groups. It also viewed the music video as recalling that of AOA and its member Jimin. On the lyrics, it holds some repetitive rhymes

The positive note on the song relies on their energy and shifting tempo. While the tune was not “catchy,” it was consistent throughout the video. The “ever-changing structure” is another aspect peculiar to them which ensures that everyone will enjoy to this song.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

I find their music video very fascinating. They are working on improving their girl crush concept that defined them. Aside from that, I find their dance moves at the last chorus very appealing, especially on their turnarounds (3:13).

Worth noticing is on how they used the starting verse to end the song.

My inclination is on cute concepts, which they did well. The members that caught my attention were Sei and Yoojung. On Sei, I felt attracted over her reactions (2:03 – 2:05). And on the latter, I find her aegyo also attractive (1:42).

On outfits, few were quite not good. Some parts of the chorus were deafening, and considering that many fans are now seeking mature music, that would not fully spark curiosity on them.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares concepts from other groups – 5 points

This refers to them using the bus concept with TWICE (in Like Ooh-Aah) and MOMOLAND (in I’m So Hot).

Aside from that, they also drew inspiration from 1the9, especially on the high school concept in Spotlight.

  • Shares real-life scene from other mainstream outlet – 5 points

For those who watched already Mr. Bean doing an experiment in a science fair, that was also shared by Weki Meki. The results of each experiment were similar, but with different effects: that of Mr. Bean emitting blue smoke, and of Weki emitting white.

  • Shares settings from I.O.I – 5 points

This reminds that of the now-defunct group, in their song Dream Girls, where they both share scenes on tennis game.

  • Bears resemblance with other members – 5 points

At 1:57, Elly resembles Jane of Momoland.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 93.04%

Final Words

The high score I gave means that Weki Meki nailed their performance this time.

As of this moment, no girl group haven’t done a high school concept for this year except for that group. Somehow, this enliven our desire to dream and achieve more. The only challenge with them is on how to refine this concept, as they can make a good potential out of it.

There are still improvements that should be worked out. However, that in itself is sufficient enough to keep them afloat. Hope they consider some points very helpful in their next projects.

Love Advice No. 102 (Topnotcher sa CPA Board Exam?)

Isa itong follow-up na article sa Love Advice No. 90, kung saan tinackle na natin ang pressure na mag-top sa CPA Board Exam. Sa artikulong ito, ating suriin kung gaano kaliit ang tsansa na mag-top dito.

Sana may matutunan dito ang mga magulang (at kahit sino) na sobra-sobra ang expectations. Dito sila magkakaroon ng ideya kung gaano kahirap ang mag-top sa naturang exam. Sa ganitong paraan malalaman nila ang wastong pakikitungo sa anak, sakaling kumuha ng CPA Board Exam:


Isang tanong:

May chance ba na mag-top sa CPA Board Exam?

My Answer:

Malabo.

Lalo pa’t binabago na ang format ng tanong sa board exam, at binabawal na ang scientific calculator, kaya ang chance na mag-top dito ay labo nang labo, ika’y malabo. Malabo, tayo’y malabo… De. Joke lang!

Ang chance na mag-top last May 2018 ay 0.3517%. That’s the time nang nakapasa ako sa exam. Ngayong May 2019 ay 0.5885%.

Bakit may ganyan pang numero? Hindi rin biro ang pag-aaral unless bright ka talaga. Kung ipipilit ng magulang na mag-top, lalo kung sasabayan ng iba’t ibang threat, parang sumusuntok na sa buwan. Napakalayo ng naging expectations nila sa reyalidad ngayon.

In the past…

Lalayo muna tayo nang kaunti, dahil may naalala ako. Kuwentuhan ko muna kayo:

Last exam, expected lang ng mga magulang na maipasa ko ito. Pero nang time na nagrereview pa ako sa ReSA, inentertain ko na ang posiblidad na mag-top dito, dahil doon ko naintindihan ang halos lahat ng itinuro sa accounting.

Tanda ko pa sa first at final preboard, marami sa kasama ko ang nalungkot dahil bagsak sila sa dalawang exam, at ang sa akin ay okay naman. Sabi nila, pag okay na daw ang rating sa preboard, most likely ay maipapasa na ang board exam. Pero hindi pa rin ako satisfied that time. Sinabi ko sa kanila na kailangan kong mag-top, kahit sa isip ko ay napakaimposible.

In effect, isa sa motivation ko ang mag-top sa exam. Inuulit-ulit kong isipin ito dahil tingin ko, hindi puwede ang “puwede na”. Kung kaya kong mag-top, gagawin ko ito.

Sinasabi ko ito dahil mas maganda kung ang pressure ay manggagaling mismo sa ating mga anak. Makokontrol nila ito kung gusto nila, at malamang ay gagawa sila ng paraan para matupad ito.

Right pressure

Puwedeng ito ang sabihin sa mga anak niyo:

“Okay lang na ipasa mo ang exam. Pero pwede mo ring i-consider na mag-top. Mas maganda rin ang opportunities para sa mga topnotchers.”

Kung ang expectations ng magulang ay ipasa lang ang board exam, mas focused sa pag-aaral at pag-analyze ng accounting problems. Importante ang analysis sa board exam at sa actual practice.

Ang pressure para mag-top ay para lang sa mga very bright, can afford, madaming luho, kabilang sa top accountancy schools, at/o kering-keri lang ang exam na ito.

Analysis

To assess ang chance na mag-Top 10, nag-calculate ako from data na galing sa Accountancy Problems.

Mapapansin na may pink color ang dalawang exams na kinuha ko noon (failed at condi). Ang naka-orange ay ang data nang maipasa ko ito.

Kung ipipilit pa nila akong mag-top, ganitong kaliit ang chance na mapasama sa Top 10. Sa lahat ng tatlong exam, pinakamasuwerte ang sa May 2018, dahil kahit paano ay mataas ang chance para sa akin na maging topnotcher.

Final Words

Ulitin ko lang din ang isang reyalidad: Passing the exam is great, and topping it is just a bonus.

Share ko sa inyo ang message mula sa isang CPA na na-pressured dati na mag-top:

Uulitin ko para sa mga magulang: Kung maliit ang chance, at kakaunti lang ang nakakapasa sa board exam, bakit mo ipepressure ang anak mo na mag-top? Sapat na ang maipasa niya ang CPA Board Exam.

Congratulations to May 2019 CPA Board Passers!

MANILA, Philippines – Congratulations to our new Certified Public Accountants!

As noted by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), only 1,699 out of 10,319 examinees passed the May 2019 CPA Board Examination held in various testing centers at Manila, Baguio, Cagayan De Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Legazpi, Tacloban, and Tuguegarao.

This translates to 16.46% national passing rate, a sharp decrease by 8.72%, and the lowest since May 2016 exams. Not to consider the fact that number of examinees increased by almost 5% compared to last year’s exam.

One isolated incident involves a female examinee, where results were withheld pending final determination of liabilities. (Reminder again: Take seriously the rules printed in your Notice of Admission or NOA to avoid liabilities. To the examinee, good luck again!)

The Board of Accountancy, at the time exam is conducted, is composed of seven directors, namely Noe G. Quiñanola, Chairman; Marko Romeo L. Fuentes, Vice Chairman; Gloria T. Baysa, Samuel B. Padilla, Arlyn Juanita S. Villanueva, Thelma S. Ciudadano, and Gervacio I. Piator, Members.

As with previous board exams, De La Salle University Manila consistently made its mark as top performing accountancy school in the Philippines, with at least 50% campus passing percentage. Josemaria Alvaro C. Fontillas and Geraldine Jade F. Papa, both from DLSU-Manila, topped the exam with a rating of 89.83%. This is followed by Leinard Jan C. Zaspa of University of Mindanao – Davao City and Eric S. Dolera of Saint Joseph’s College – Maasin, garnering second (86.50%) and third (88.17%) places respectively. It can be also noted that two-thirds of all topnotchers are from schools outside Metro Manila.

As stated by a website, “Registration for the issuance of Professional Identification Card (ID) and Certificate of Registration will be done on-line.” Refer to http://online.prc.gov.ph/ for guidance on this. Date and venue of oathtaking will be announced later through PRC/BOA social media accounts, as PRC site is still under maintenance as of this writing.

From TweetNewscaster, congratulations to all of you, and wishing all of you the best of luck!


(SIDE NOTE: Consider yourself as very lucky, dahil hindi lahat ay nabibigyan ng chance na maipasa ito. Few are given this privilege, kaya sana gamitin natin ang biyayang ito sa tama.

It is given na laging exposed ang ating propesyon sa sari-saring pagbabago. Expect na natin na mahihirapan tayong makisabay sa mga pagbabagong ito, unless may long-term na pagbabago sa sistema ng gobyerno at ekonomiya.

Dahil lagi tayong exposed sa changes sa propesyon, as new CPAs, dapat tayong manguna sa long-term na pagbabago na kailangan natin.

Wag ding kalimutang magpasalamat sa mga taong naging parte ng inyong tagumpay. Puwede mo ring i-consider ang pagtanaw ng utang na loob sa kanila through any means.

Kung meron kayong gustong ikuwento na magbibigay inspirasyon sa iba nating kabaro na maging CPA din, puwede ninyong i-PM ito sa official Facebook page natin: http://facebook.com/tncsite , at ating ipopost ito sa site.

Congrats ulit sa inyo. So, kita-kits ulit tayo sa PICC?


Sa mga magulang: Considering na matindi ang competition ng maraming schools para mag-top lalo na sa probinsya, at sobrang liit ng chance na maipasa ito, ipe-pressure mo ba ang anak mo na mag-top sa CPA Board Exam?

Pansinin: 16.46% ang chance of passing. Kung magta-top siya, 0.5885815185% ang chance niya na mag-top sa CPA Board Exam. Sapat na ang makapasa ang inyong anak sa board exam.

News and Tidbits (May 29, 2019)

Recently, Jimin of AOA showed her body in an Instagram post:

Her figure should be a cause for alarm. While their agency stated previously that this must not be dealt with seriously, her continous loss of weight signals a big problem. Maybe that’s why AOA haven’t made a comeback since Bingle Bangle.

***

We haven’t moved on with disbandment of Hello Venus and Lipbubble, and there’s another group folllowing the same.

This time, it’s Pristin. The group was under Pledis Entertainment, same agency that handles SEVENTEEN. After deliberations, they agreed to part ways. And to put it bluntly, they are also adding another set of dismayed fans.

The seven members who left the group apparently chose to go with their own careers. If that’s the case, we can surmise that few of them will take the lead.

As for Kyulkyung, who are both from I.O.I and Pristin, we can be assured that she remains with the agency. But with Nayoung also part of these disbanded groups, where will she go?

***

Sorry also to Bom of 2NE1 for not having any MV review (again!) of her work, due to lack of time. I do hope that she will create another comeback, and this time I will prioritize reviewing her work over others.

It’s good to see one of them continuing what they have started, and I hope Dara will have her own music career too.

***

Creating misheard lyrics for this month is very tedious, as there are so many comebacks and debuts. In fact, out of more than 50 songs mapped to date, there are 19 songs waiting to be misheard. But we’ll still do it just for fun.

Added to the problem is on MV Reviews being dragged for so long. The problem lies on lack of equipment needed to finish this, and on busy schedules.

***

To those followers who want to relish more recipes from the author, there are three recipes ready for release in the next three months. Stay tuned.

***

Congratulations ulit sa lahat ng nakapasa sa May 2018 CPA Board Exam!

Good luck and God bless sa inyong paglalakbay. Nasa next article na ang aking maikling reminder para sa ating lahat. So, kita-kits tayo sa PICC?

Sa mga hindi nakapasa, take this situation as challlenge for you. Matutulungan ko kayo thru inspirational message kung paano ninyo malalampasan ang susunod na board exam.

***

Ngayong naiproklama na ang mga Senador, ano kaya ang mangyayari sa Senado?

Maaring magbago sila ng leadership, lalo na kung si Sen. Tito Sotto ay matatanggal bilang Senate President. Mag-iiba rin ng tauhan sa Majority at Minority side nila:

Maraming dapat matutunan ang Otso Diretso, pati ang LP, sa kanilang pagkatalo. Iyan ang tatalakayin natin sa isang Love Advice. Pero kung ayaw pa rin nilang makinig, bahala na sila sa buhay nila.

***

Nakakatuwa na rin na malapit nang mawala si Trillanes.

Bukod sa kawalan ng aksyon sa CPD, hindi rin nakakatuwa ang kawalang-galang kay Pang. Duterte. Parang hindi tinuruan ng magandang asal.

Anyway, anuman ang mangyari, he has to face the consequences.

WINNER (위너) – AH YEAH (아예): MV Review

For our another MV review, we have another group WINNER, with their song Ah Yeah.

Upon first look on the title, I thought that it was BLACKPINK’s line in Ddu-Du Ddu-Du. But their chorus tell otherwise. By sharing the phrase, I suppose iKON will include it in their next comeback.

Pardon also if I haven’t made a review over their song Millions (but I then included it in misheard lyrics video). This time, we will do it on their first song for 2019. You may watch their MV first before reading the review:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 3 points.

The video tells of a story of love, where they view it as a challenge and leisure at the same time.

While the storyline can be understood a bit enough, it lacked a cohesive factor to make it understable to non-Koreans. Aside from this, they didn’t provide even a bit of storyline on their description.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The themes consistently featured on the video were on party and playing games.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

Primarily, the moral lesson that can be seen here is on enjoying life and being happy, as seen with them playing games or watching a movie.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

The MV features arcade games (0:32 – 0:46). Somehow, this will help raise consciousness on viewers on what we played in the past.

winner ah yeah game2winner ah yeah game

Second thing they featured is on watching movie at a movie theater at the first pre-chorus. Somehow, this will help viewers be aware again on the feel of being at that place.

winner ah yeah movie

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 7 points

At a movie theater, look on how they reacted upon watching a movie.

winner ah yeah moviewinner ah yeah movie funny

Another point considered is on Mino’s hand (1:32) and leg (1:45), which shares that of lobsters. Maybe he wants to catch something?

winner ah yeah mino handwinner ah yeah mino leg

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points.

Even if the song by itself is exciting, this is not exciting enough to tickle the ears of non-K Pop fans.

  1. Review by other sites – 4 points

TheBiasList reviewed sadly the group, as it deemed that after the latter’s release of Ah Yeah, they seemed to favor “style over substance.” This was evident on their latest song Millions, which he (and I) suppose to be a fad. Meanwhile, it cheers as the song signals more “upbeat” songs from them in the next months.

The most favorite part is on pre-chorus, which excites the listener to the “ho-hum hook that follows.” Some points explained will be a great part in keeping the momentum WINNER is holding as of this writing.

KPopReviewed noted some similarities between the group and EXID, especially on title tracks and lead songs. It reviewed the song positively, stating that this is a perfect hit for summer, making up what Millions missed. While pre-chorus is exciting, the opposite can be told for the chorus itself.

However, the chorus was as bright as was intended to show in the song, only to be relegated with the typical songs used every summer. On the visuals, these are “equally bright and vibrant,” and can be seen that members are having so much fun. As a whole, the song “seems simple”.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

They have been consistent on featuring the fun side of K-Pop, and shows a little bit of what we can do in summer. For instance, riding a ship or watching a movie.

I find also the steps very easy to dance. Hope this will be picked by mainstream media in their regular dance challenges.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares concepts from other groups – 5 points

At 2:12, Mino, with a cloud on his head shares same thing with DreamNote’s Habin on Hakuna Matata (1:40):

winner ah yeah clouddreamnote cloud

And at 2:36, Jinu calling someone shares similar old telephone with 1the9 in their song Spotlight.

winner ah yeah phonespotlight phone

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 92.00%

Final Words

I do not find this too exciting. But they passed almost all of the criterion presented here, and they deserve it.

While their comeback this year is very interesting by itself, some points must be taken into account.

This is more on creating a cohesive storyline and on improving a little bit on their music. This needs to be considered, as 2019 is also full of comebacks, with challenge for each group to stand out. Anyway, this review serves as appreciation of their work, and I hope to see them doing greater things in the future.

EXID (이엑스아이디) – ME&YOU: MV Review

This is the first time we will review EXID, another girl group, with their new song ME&YOU.

Upon looking at the group’s name, it looks similar to EXO, and it looks like it is a girl version of the boy group. But as we go on with our first review, we will discover more about them.

It has been reported that the group will be on “indefinite hiatus,” as we will discuss a bit later. Fortunately, they gave us time to do a review on their work before bidding goodbye to us. I shall do it this time to return the favor on them waiting for us.

(Side Note: Further improvements will be made. For criteria on appearance, music, and dance, I will place findings on Criterion No. 18, if any. Actually, this has no effect on the rating of the said criterion.)

You may watch first their video before going to review proper:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points.

From the looks of the video, they somehow tell a storyline. This revolves on the girls wearing wedding dress. A girl later hold a gun upon knowing that their wedding will not continue.

The sign at the fence signifies the end of their relationship, but at the end still dreams to be together with the man.

exid end road

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points.

They consistently featured the wedding dresses and party as their theme for this song.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

Somehow, they impliedly tell the lesson of getting married. While others opt to live each other without benefit of marriage, the group unconsciously upholds the value of it.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 2 points

Haven’t seen anything that will benefit viewers.

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 1 point

Sorry for this. Haven’t seen also anything funny from this.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points
  1. Review by other sites – 5 points

TheBiasList revealed that the song might be their last comeback, as Hani and Jeonghwa did not renew their contract. The group with each member handled by different agencies will not stand well.

As far as the music is concerned, it is being tugged between going backward and taking things forward. While recycled, they make the best out of it, fully utilizing their “bombastic” voices to give energy to the song.

KPopReviewed told that despite hiatus, the group will still be together.

On the music, the blogger finds this as a “fantastic song”, and a bit different from their previous lead tracks. The song focuses more on their voices, and it might be very addictive once listened.

The contrasts within parts of the song can be seen and heard here, particularly on shades of black and white.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

While the moves were sensual, which will be a little pull-down factor, I appreciate it personally. They did not go too far to become gross.

The music video mostly features shades of black and red. However, that was colorful enough. On outfits, one point lacking was on their outfit when they are dancing. Aside from that, one point lacking was that the music was not exciting enough for one to get interested over it.

On dance, I gave four points to each, as (1) it is fairly simple, but lacked the boom factor, and (2) some moves were sensual.

  1. Other factors
  • Looks – 5 points

At 1:57, Junghwa shares resemblance with TWICE’s Jihyo:

exid jihyo

  • Completeness of members – 5 points

Added this criterion to compliment them. KPopReviewed told that “Due to an injury, LE’s participation in the performance was quite limited.” But she is still included in the last comeback.

This is what MOMOLAND should learn from this group. From start till end, they are still complete in their lead songs, and I haven’t heard any case where any one of them is missing in their various MVs.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 82.86%

Final Words

This is their final song, and I hope I explained well why I have to give this kind of rating. While the grade was not remarkable, I personally liked how they dance. Good news is that I will also include it on the misheard lyrics to be released next time.

It was very sad to see some groups having an indefinite hiatus, like that of CNBlue. While this no longer push them to improve further, hope they might consider this if they will do the same together or perform individually. Wishing all the best for EXID and all the members.

News and Tidbits (May 22, 2019)

Recently, Mina left AOA. That’s troublesome, noting that they have their last release almost a year ago. That leaves us with five members remaining, and they will still continue. As for Choa, hope she overcomes depression that she is feeling now.

At this point they have to make a comeback, and if willing, add more members to the group. It looks awkward to see them lacking.

***

Speaking of lacking, here’s supposedly the latest photo of MOMOLAND’s Daisy:

After giving it some thought, here’s now my take: I hope this will be their only response on this. If their response will be the same again, I will not hesitate to make the completeness criterion a permanent part of every review with MOMOLAND. And again, not to remove it till I say so.

***

I was recently informed that Lipbubble, another underrated K-Pop group, is going to disband.

News like these are kinda heartbreaking, as they haven’t given chance to shine more.

***

Honestly, with so many groups, old and new having comebacks and debuts, I don’t think I would finish all MV reviews. So many things grabbing my attention. Maybe I’ll review that of existing groups, and selectively on new groups.

Meanwhile, setting aside MV Reviews, I later realized that I have completed most articles, and are ready for publishing. Am polishing the details before releasing it.

***

Ever wondered why Obsessed and Assessed haven’t made another review since he/she last reviewed that of TWICE. It has been one month already.

If one tracks the calendar schedules, the blogger lists in the calendar the MVs to be reviewed. But almost all of these aren’t published so far. Still also waiting for its side on Park Bom’s 4:44 and EXID’s Meyou.

No choice then for us but to wait for his/her alibis. Will he/she be dismayed again over new set of issues?  I am still monitoring this site. Even if personally I disliked how he/she reviews the songs, I find the inputs very useful in rating MVs.

***

Sorry also to TheBiasList, KPopReviewed, and other sites who are receiving many pingbacks. Your comments are also considered when rating music videos.

***

Congratulations ulit sa lahat ng mga nag-take ng May 2019 CPA Board Exam.

Last Monday, bigla kong naalala ang nangyari noong isang taon. Taxation na lang ang kulang, at kinailangan ko ng mahabang pasensya para matapos ito. Dagdag pa ang pagtitiis sa mga bagay para lang maipasa ito.

All your sacrifices are definitely worth it. Aantayin na lang natin ang results ng exam sa mga susunod na araw.

***

Nakakatuwa lang ang nangyayari ngayon sa bansa.

Merong mga gustong mag-migrate dahil hindi tanggap ang resulta ng eleksyon. Atin itong tatalakayin sa isa pang Love Advice.

Samantala, may plano na para buhaying muli ang ROTC. Gusto kasi ng iba na makipag-gera sa China. So, no choice. Ginusto nila yan eh. Dinamay na pati mga gustong manahimik sa isyu. Sa susunod na Love Adivce ay atin din itong ididiscuss.

Malapit nang matapos ang bilangan para sa mga Senador. Kahit hindi masyadong nagsusulat ang may-akda tungkol sa pulitika, nagmamasid naman sa nangyayari noong halalan. Makakapasok kaya ang isa sa Otso Diretso, yamang kalahating milyon na lang ang hinihintay?

Chanyeol (찬열) – SSFW (봄, 여름, 가을, 겨울): MV Review

On our MV Reviews, we are now featuring EXO’s Chanyeol, with his song SSFW.

At first glance, I thought that means “So Safe For Work,” apparently patterned after NSFW (Not Safe For Work) commonly used on Internet. But actually, that stands for initials of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter, which are the four seasons of temperate countries (like Korea).

I had been once a fan of EXO, and I admit that was due to my fellow classmates’ obsession on them seven years ago. (They were the most famous group at that time, and BTS was not yet famous then.) At that time, the group haven’t come up with their fandom name, but EXO fans then were called as “Exostans.” Too bad that I lacked time to follow the group, even on their recent comeback.

Since I haven’t done a MV review on their latest song Love Shot, this time we will now do it on my bias, Chanyeol. You may relax on the MV before proceeding to review itself:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

The story revolves on the man having various journey, and meeting with different girls. In a restaurant, he then places a flower, to remind the girl of his presence. The video ends in a sunset, where the man and a woman, though in a separate coast, long for each other.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points.

The theme consistenly features classic living, like the old car and a classic restaurant, which recalls the old times.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 1 point

Pardon for the score. Haven’t seen any moral lesson in this MV.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

With regards to this criterion, the producers made a good move on teaching the value of leisure. It is given that we are so busy on various things, to the point that we forgot to relax and slow down.

In addition, the theme features tropical settings, which will help lift the mood of viewers. This is the same effect when exposed to the sun all year round.

Other Matters

  1. Has ability to make one sad – 8 points

Upon listening to the MV, I felt sad, especially at the sunset. Felt like that they still long for each other.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 2 points
  1. Review by other sites – 4 points

KPopReviewed noted that the song was “fitting for a breezy weather,” as if taking a leisure on a nice place. The blogger detailed how the song was okay, but told that these kind of genre will not take the stars for so long. As with all SM Ent’s releases this year, these may be classified as “boring” tracks.

The blogger pointed out that the song shares similar concepts with Taeyeon’s Four Seasons, slightly deviating to the warmer side, and featuring all seasons except winter. He/she then pointed out where the three seasons are in the video.

TheBiasList made also a very good observation on SM Entertainment, which only focused on making solo debuts (or to add, Japanese comebacks). Take the case of Yeri with her Dear Diary and that of Heechul and Minho.

It reviewed quite negatively on the song, as this wasted opportunity for Chanyeol to shine as a singer. Meanwhile, the blogger noted that this shares similarities with another MV from Amber, especially on the beach concept. Though not pleasant, it commended the calm approach present in the MV.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

I find the song very calm and nice.

Though the MV by its nature is sad, it was nevertheless colorful. To dwell on sadness that is present in the music, they made a good move featuring the life from the 60s to 80s. These periods dwell on sad songs, and you will hear these every Sunday on the radio.

To add, maybe the reason why SM Ent made solo debuts is on waiting for other members to finish military service or other commitments, before doing another comeback. That actually is a good move from their part.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares concepts with other groups – 5 points

The sunset being featured in the video represents the final phase of the song, or love itself.

This refers to Chanyeol getting the sunset concept from WINNER’s Island. At the last chorus, the latter’s MV features the time from sunset till night, starting at 2:42.

It was also supposedly inspired by MAMAMOO’s Starry Night, starting at 3:11 or at their credits.

  • Seasons must be complete – 3 points

One point lacking on this was that he did not feature the Winter side. Maybe a hot stew will do, as this represents need to be warm on winter months.

It also lacks another symbolism for the Spring side: cherry blossoms or cherry flowers. While this is being featured in various MVs like that of Eunha/Ravi and N.Flying, there was none on the MV. This is also being featured in TweetNewscaster’s misheard lyrics vid for Spring season.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 87.37% (Updated)

Final Words

Though I felt bad on not reviewing EXO, somehow I made it through my bias Chanyeol.

I remembered another quote from EXO’s Kai:

“If you’re not good at studying, don’t even think about liking me …Focus more on your studies than us, and meet us again proudly in the future.”

Now is the time to focus more on them, especially on EXO, as I’m finished already with my studies.

(Pardon also for the oversight on Criterion No. 13.)

From the looks of it, we are seeing solo debuts of some members like Chen and Chanyeol. The question on their next comeback this year still remains unclear, with Xiumin joining the army.

It is my sincere desire to make this MV Review an inspiration to each member to never give up entertaining all of us. For SM Entertainment, they have to make another energetic comeback with any of the groups remaining.

Love Advice No. 101

Ito ay karugtong ng naunang artikulo na tinalakay ang tungkol sa Love Advice at sa may-akda mismo. Ito rin ang magsisilbing reflection ng may-akda tungkol sa pananaw niya sa pag-ibig, pati na rin ang makulay na kasaysayan ng Love Advice sa site na ito.

Makikita sa espesyal na artikulong ito ang mga milestones ng love advice:


Milestones

Nang buksan ang site na ito noong 2014, nagkaroon ng unang love advice after three months. Doon ko binigyan ng banat ang kanyang syota na di nakatiis sa LDR. Sinundan ito ng pito pang love advice, mula sa mga nagtatanong kay Papa Jack. After ng Love Advice No. 10, saka na ako nag-iba ng istilo.

Gumawa din ang may-akda ng sariling love problems (Love Advice No. 12, No. 16, No. 77, No. 78, at No. 98). Lahat ng ito ay self-test ng may-akda.

Sa unang pagkakataon, sinagot natin ang family problem sa Love Advice No. 90. Ito ay tungkol sa pressure na nararamdaman ng isang examinee na mag-top sa CPA Board Exam.

Sa dami rin ng mga nagtatanong noon sa Search Box, ating pinagsama-sama ang mga tanong, para mapabilis ang pagsagot sa mga tanong na ibinabato sa atin. Pasensya na kung meron pa ring iba na hindi ko nasasagot.

First time din nating magbigay ng love advice sa wikang Ingles (Love Advice No. 68). Ito ay isang high school story na tungkol sa pagsabunot sa isang dalaga dahil na-inlove siya sa lalaki. Bukod diyan, nai-translate natin ang ilan sa mga love advice sa wikang Ingles.

May mga nagpadala na rin thru e-mail, at atin itong sinagutan (Love Advice No. 57, No. 61, No. 62, No. 65, No. 66, at No. 67). Ito’y bilang pasasalamat sa kanilang effort na ikuwento ang kanilang problema sa pag-ibig.

Isa pa, nagbigay din tayo ng love advice sa mga artista, kahit hindi ito hinihingi sa atin. Tulad na lang kina Kisses Delavin (Love Advice No. 83) at Janella Salvador (Love Advice No. 89). Atin itong ginagawa para na rin sa ikabubuti nila.

May mga sensitibong topics na binigyan din natin ng pansin, na ididiscuss ko mamaya.

Personal advices

Samantala, nagbigay na rin ako ng advice sa mga taong malapit sa akin. Isa na riyan ang Love Advice No. 60. Curious kasi ang kaibigan ko regarding sa picture ni ex. Nang nag-comment ako sa Facebook post niya, may humirit na nagsabing tumahimik daw ako. Instead na patulan ang sinabi ng huli, ito na ang nagtulak sa akin na isulat ito. Lalo pa’t ang dami ng magandang comments.

Sa Love Advice No. 35, naramdaman ng isang office staff na mataba pa rin siya. Kahit sa totoo lang ay payat talaga ang dalaga.

Isang kaibigan din ang nag-post ng hinanakit dahil umasa siya sa bestfriend niya, at dito ko ibinigay ang Love Advice No. 8.

May kuwento din sa Love Advice No. 82. Sinabi ng isang kakilala ko na maganda ang kanyang kaibigan, at siya ay hindi. Nag-comment ako na hindi totoo iyon, dahil maganda pa rin siya. Doon ko lang nilahad ang tips sa love advice, pero nahihiya pa rin akong ipaalam ito sa kanya.

Be sensitive

Tinalakay din natin ang ilan sa mga isyu na kailangang pag-usapan, kahit na ito ay sensitibo:

Tinalakay ng Love Advice No. 96 ang tungkol sa social media, kung saan dapat may limitasyon ang pag-post sa socmed. Basta i-declare na sila’y magsyota na, sapat na.

Sa Love Advice No. 10, inilahad ko ang mga tips kung paano sasabihin ang feelings sa guy. Alam ko na halos hindi ito pinag-uusapan sa ibang love advisers, pero tinackle natin ito. Hangga’t may nasasaktan na babae sa sistemang ito, ating uulit-ulitin ang importanteng aral na ito. Dahil nakakaawa din ang mga babae na hirap magpahayag ng damdamin.

Sinagot din natin sa Love Advice No. 88 kung bakit di ka crush ng crush mo. Ito ay mukhang hindi binigyang-diin ng ilang love advisers. Dito na natin isinampal ang reyalidad na iba ang konsepto ng “crush” sa konsepto ng “pagmamahal.” Hindi ito alam ng marami, at ito ang ugat ng ilang problema sa pag-ibig, tulad ng pagdami ng paasa at pagkasira ng friendships. Di ba?

Sa Love Advice No. 80, ipinunto na natin na hindi applicable sa lahat ang katagang “Huwag hanapin ang pag-ibig, ito’y darating sa iyo.” Dahil may mga sitwasyon kung kailan applicable ito, at kung kailan hindi.

Other topics

Samantala, meron din tayong mga sinagot na hindi talaga 100% Love Advice. Pero nagbigay tayo ng payo dahil sa pagmamahal sa kanila.

Isa na rito ang CPD units (Love Advice No. 85) bilang pagmamahal sa mga nasa propesyon. Magsilbi sana itong challenge para sa lahat ng CPAs na isulong ang open economy, para maka-comply tayong lahat dito. O i-abolish na lang kung may phobia tayo sa foreign investments.

Tulad ng nabanggit ko na, ang tungkol sa pressure sa CPA Board Exam sa Love Advice No. 90. Ito ay bilang pagmamahal na rin sa mga kumukuha ng exam.

Isa pang bagay ang tungkol sa eleksyon sa isa pang Love Advice. In advance ay binigay na natin ang gabay para makapili ng kung sinong dapat iboto.  Hintayin ko ang proklamasyon bago ako magbigay ng banat.

All about sex

Isa pang bagay na napapansin ko ay ang tungkol sa sex at sa virginity. Tulad na lang sa Love Advice No. 20 at No. 54, kung saan hiniling na makipag-sex. Kung hindi naman pinilit sa sex, nabubuntis naman nang maaga. Sa Love Advice No. 99, hindi iningatan ni gal ang kanyang pagkababae, at nagwalwal pa.

Kahit na masyadong sensitibo ang topic na ito, at hindi madalas na pinag-uusapan sa ibang love advisers, pati na rin ng may-akda, minabuti ng huli na i-tackle ito. Dahil meron pa ring nalilito sa kaibahan ng “sex” at “pag-ibig”. At dahil maraming kabataan ngayon ang hindi nagagabayan, o hindi nag-iingat pagdating diyan.

Final Words

Sa loob ng halos limang taon na tumatakbo ang Love Advice, na-accomplish natin ang ilang milestones sa pagbibigay ng payo. Pero marami pang dapat gawin sa mga susunod na taon. At marami pang milestones na dapat nating marating.

Apink (에이핑크) – Everybody Ready?: MV Review

For our another MV Review, we have now Apink, with their song Everybody Ready?

Pardon if I haven’t done a review on their song Eung Eung, (but anyways I included them in my set of misheard lyrics video). As this is the first time for me to do a review of their song as a group, and first time to review a fan song, it was particularly exciting for me to do it.

With so many new groups coming this May, and with older groups coming back, as earlier pointed out, improvements will be done on MV Reviews. This is to save time, and for readers not to be overwhelmed by long articles. But before the author reviews this, you may watch their video below:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points.

They made the storyline simple, by defining the various places they travel while riding. On the other hand, they express the story on partying while inside a house.

1theK, in its YouTube page, describes what’s in the song:

Celebrating its 8th anniversary this year, Apink is releasing digital single [Everybody Ready?].

The members, who have prepared their fan songs every year for the fans who always go with Apink, chose a special genre this time.

They wanted to sing the joy of being one that they felt while meeting fans through concerts and albums from the start of 2019, and put the whishes into the song.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points.

Theme consistent is on party and travel themes.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

Primarily, the moral lesson that is explicitly stated is on their appreciation of fans. Also, at 1:29, they are teaching us to take care of our pets.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

Apparently, they are teaching the viewers that we have to take a break, or have vacations. This helps us to reflect and unwind amidst the stress and busy schedules we have today.

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 10 points

I find the scene at 1:20 very funny, where the two played on the bathtub. They imagined as if they were sailing. That in itself deserves a perfect score.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points

Since this is intended to be heard by fans, I doubt if this will be taken up by mainstream media.

  1. Review by other sites – 5 points

TheBiasList reviewed the song as sharing similar genre with High School Musical, particularly on its upbeats. And necessarily, this effectively serves as their throwback song, deviating from their previous “electronic backdrops” that made them known.

Though they used ordinary concepts from other groups, the blogger still prefers this. The final seconds of the song would be very intriguing, and as he pointed out, it “would be a welcome addition to any live show.”

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

This is actually not their comeback song, but can be interpreted as “coming back” for their fans.

It can be seen that they really enjoyed a lot in producing this. They are creating this just to entertain Pink Pandas who exerted their efforts in supporting them. In fact, as some pointed out, they are doing this yearly as an expression of thanks.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares resemblance with other members – 5 points

At various timestamps (1:55, 2:09 – 2:10, 2:56 – 2:57), Naeun resembles Solar of Mamamoo.

A member at 3:04 resembles Jeongyeon of TWICE:

  • Shows appreciation for their fans – 5 points

I decided to add another factor, as this is a very important task for the stars. By doing this annually, Apink always ensures their fans that they appreciate the latter’s efforts. This is also to encourage other stars to do the same for their fans.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 93.33%

Final Words

This was rated too high, but they deserve this grade. Like Dreamnote’s Hakuna Matata, this is what I want in a music video.

Since this is a song primarily intended for their fans, and they did not feature their dance, the two criteria related to these is hereby removed.

Hope their annual project for their fans push other to do the same continuously. This will be a lot of help if more K-Pop groups will do it, as they will benefit from it in the end.

N.Flying (엔플라잉) – Spring Memories (봄이 부시게): MV Review

For the Spring Season, here comes N.Flying with their new song Spring Memories.

(Side Note: To simplify further future MV Reviews, Criterion No. 3 – No. 10, which relates to appearance and music, will all be given five points. On videos uploaded to 1theK, two criteria will be given five and zero points respectively. I will indicate on the Final Words if scores tell otherwise.)

Since Spring necessitates romantic settings in Korea, this calls for a music video review. Would they feature love in a different way? You may watch this before reading the author’s review:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

The storyline they presented is fairly simple. The girl gets notified of spring, but consistently ignores it until finally, she goes outside. Meanwhile, the guy takes pictures of spring, which reminds him of moments with the girl. There come a time when they almost met, only to be distracted with their phones. The video ends with the man who suddenly sees a girl in a house, implying another sequel for the video.

1theK, in its YouTube page, provided a storyline for this video:

The band N.Flying, loved for ‘Rooftop’, a vivid picture of a love affair on a winter night, will sing the love on a spring this time.

The title track ‘Spring Memories’, which marks the beginning of the song with lyrical acoustic guitars and whistles, expressed various aspects of love for this warm spring through a self-written song of the leader SEUNGHYUB. It tells the story of lovers who are half of each other and who had a brilliant sweet spring day but sometimes faced with a bitter moment of longing for their old spring memories.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The spring theme is consistent throughout the whole MV, particularly on cherry trees.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points.

Primarily, the lesson that can be seen is on reminiscing moments, how to move on, and how to deal with it in our future lives.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

At 2:18 and 2:22, they featured brewing coffee and baking bread, respectively. Viewers might get interested on how to do it, considering that this is also a type of business that sells.

Other Matters

  1. Ability of the song to make one cry – 5 points

One that moved me is on 2:28 – 2:42, where one thought that he and the girl will be together, but another guy joined with them. In the video, the latter guy is her boyfriend.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points
  1. Review by other sites – 5 points

KPopReviewed told that the song was happy, in time for spring. It noted that with their song “Rooftop” gaining charts, the pressure builds up on Spring Memories. It complimented the group for making the right choice of song, since it’s Spring in Korea where lovesongs are a hit. These songs are not a type, but this time he/she favors it.

Though TheBiasList finds this music as “solid”, he wants the previous tracks. The blogger noted the group’s improvement. However, it described the song as catered to coffee shops. That was nice, but he wondered if this will help a lot for the group to maintain momentum in the future.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points.

I find the video very interesting, especially at the end of the video. Why? Luckily, the guy approaches the girl by surprise. What will happen next? The end of the video served as cliffhanger.

In the whole of the video, they substantially featured the cherry trees, implying that their love was so deep.

One thing I noted is at 1:46, where they briefly featured a church. Somehow, they didn’t absolutely hide a church there, considering that Christians make up one-third of Korea’s population. Aside from the fact that they supported innovations that shaped the Korea we know today.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 84.76%

PERC%NT (퍼센트) – Canvas Girl: MV Review

For our another review, we will feature PERC%NT in his another song called Canvas Girl. This is a story of a boy and a girl falling in love through art.

I decided to do a review of it, as I see that virtually all reviewers did not touch this. In a way, this will serve as assistance to small groups and soloists. You may watch first the MV here:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

The storyline in this video is pretty simple. The two students in an art class, at first, gets awkward with each other and doing hide-and-seek. Oftentimes, they are debating with each other, later to find out that they consider themselves as friends. The video ends with each other showing expressions of love.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The theme consistent is on arts and classical ballad settings.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

An important lesson can be seen at 1:57 – 2:05, where they feature the value of friendship.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

First, they made their viewers get interested on art, especially on painting.

Second, they introduced the classical music, which will help calm the ears of the listeners.

Finally, at 3:03 – 3:06, this is to make viewers aware on appearance of photos and/or movies:

All of these will benefit viewers as they are being offered alternative, classical choices to entertainment.

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 10 points

Funny scene in the video is on hiding with each other, and at 2:55 where the girl points a brush at the guy.

Meanwhile, the funniest scene in the video can be seen with the singing cat at the last fifteen seconds.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points

With slow tempo naturally present in the video, it would not be surprising if mainstream media will ignore it.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

I find the music video very simple and low cost. However, this projects really well the title of the song. They are really emphasizing the value of drawing in projecting what kind of girl he wants to express.

Aside from that, they also made a good move featuring Choiza of Dynamic Duo. While relegated to “featured” status, still he was given time to sing in the spotlight.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares some concepts with IU – 5 points

At 1:28 – 1:32, we can see a cloth that changes colors. This is being shared with soloist IU in her song Bbi Bbi at the end of her video.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 92.63%

Final Words

I removed the criterion related to review by other sites, as I haven’t seen anyone giving a critique of the MV. Also with dance, as they don’t feature it  in the video.

All criteria from Criterion No. 3 – No. 10 are given five points each. Meanwhile, Criterion No. 9 was changed to conform with the calm genre presented. On 1theK, two criteria are given five and zero points respectively.

Honestly, with so many new groups vying for attention, other groups are getting less of it. Hope this review helps a lot for PERC%NT to remain relevant in this genre we love and share.

MOMOLAND (모모랜드) – Love Is Only You (사랑은너하나): MV Review

For the fourth time, we are now reviewing again MOMOLAND, with their song Love Is Only You. This is made in collaboration with Erik, a Vietnamese singer. This is a soft collaboration, and the video only features four out of nine members, namely Hyebin, Yeonwoo, JooE, and Nayun.

Now that they made another collaboration, we may have wondered on what happened to the group. Have they considered some points we noticed earlier? Had they learned a bit of lesson from other groups?

Pardon if I will be very candid on this review. We will discuss these later, but you may watch first their MV before proceeding to review proper.


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

The storyline revolves on the four girls in a coffee shop. They imagined the guy facing each one of them, only to find out themselves waking each other from imagination. They later realized that the guy is going somewhere else, leaving them sad.

1theK, in its YouTube page, provided a storyline on this MV:

MOMOLAND’s new song ‘Love Is Only You’ is a ballad that is somewhat different from the girl band’s previous ‘exciting’ concept, portraying the longing for the loved one emotionally.

The song exquisitely described the lyrics like a lyric poem as presented in ‘a lonely island and a star’ with the heartrending medium tempo melody as if watercolor runs.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The theme is very consistent on featuring the coffee shop.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

That is more on bridging dreams with reality. To win the man they love, they should have expressed their feelings to him, and not just imagine. Otherwise, their imagination will not come true.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

Yeonwoo teaches us on how to prepare coffee in the first thirty-two (32) seconds of the video. This might inspire more persons to take vocational courses related to this.

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 5 points

Let’s start at 3:13, where they wake each other from reality. Look at how they react. Other than that, I did not find the rest of the video funny.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 1 point.

They stepped a bit backward from their usual energetic songs. While this served as their “break”, we’re not sure if this will be picked by mainstream media, unlike their previous songs.

  1. Review by other sites – 3 points

Ever wondered why Obsessed and Assessed haven’t made any review on the group. Definitely, the group will get reprimand from that reviewer.

TheBiasList made a very good observation on the group. While they were successful in 2018, here comes the downturn this year. On the song, it would not be as popular, as many are used to them doing energetic moves.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 2 points

Pardon also for the score. Can’t see that they are complete. Though the voices of other three can be heard, it’s best to include them with Daisy and Taeha. We’ll discuss this later.

They made a good deal featuring Hyebin, Nayun, and JooE, and this let us speculate on their next comeback.

  1. Other factors
  • Looks – 5 points

Yeonwoo returned with her previous look, and with that I am very pleased.

On Hyebin, It is surprising how her hair grew so fast. Though at first I was confused on her looks, I can recognize the girl. For me, Hyebin is the most beautiful of them all in the vid.

  • Title of the video must not be misleading – 0 points

This refers only to their group’s name, which is misleading. If the reason not giving zero points to this was on Momoland’s “Hug Me”, that would be acceptable if the song is underrated, and part of the track.

But since this is a lead song, it should bear the subgroup’s name. Name it first as Momola, not Momoland. Take the case of EXO (CBX) and AOA (Cream, Black).

  • Completeness of members – 0 points

As for Ahin, Nancy, and Jane (which the latter two are my biases), it is suggested that they have another collaboration with Erik (with a separate story or not), including the other two.

And for the third time, they did not feature Daisy and Taeha. Although not my biases, it’s heartbreaking to see this. It seems that the agency didn’t take it seriously. As a result, ten points will be assigned to this criterion.

What does this mean? This will be a major pull-down factor for them. Let me fully explain about this.

As explained in the past, MOMOLAND is being plagued by various issues like dating issues, hate from other fandoms, and absenteeism issues. In fact, the latter issue is virtually absent from well-known groups.

If this is not carried out, think how unfair it is for other groups like TWICE, BTS, ASTRO, BLACKPINK, and GFRIEND, who are enduring sickness and sleepless nights in practice and concerts, especially on creating MVs, but managed to be complete.

(In fact, Sowon of GFRIEND reported that they only get four hours of sleep each night in their practice of “Glass Bead”. Even TWICE is not exempted on this, as Sana passed out because she lacked sleep for three days. However, they are still complete.)

It would be unfair for Jendeukie, Cha Eunwoo, and Sowon who were bashed on same issue Daisy is facing, but still continued working. It would also be unfair to their agencies who acted correctly to this issue.

Finally, it would be unfair for other groups like Noir, JBJ, and even Wanna One, who are completing themselves before facing the mainstream media. Also, if this is not considered, it would be unfair for other stars who exerted efforts to be let known by ordinary viewers. (Hello, Yeonwoo!)

Even without Taeha, I would give full points, as I perfectly understand her situation. But not with Daisy. The agency responded wrongly to this case.

This criterion is only exclusive for MOMOLAND, and I will not remove it unless I say so, or unless Yeonwoo will appear on PH mainstream media with other members. Also, I will not give them full ten (10) points for them even if Daisy and Taeha are there. This is to give the two chances to stand out, given that they missed so many events.

(As for Yeonwoo, everytime the group appears on mainstream media, she is always absent. She really has to make up for the times she missed, as some PH Merries ask on her whereabouts. It seems that she is not interested in letting more ordinary Filipinos know about her.)

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 70.43%

Final Words

Momoland is following the trend this year, which is more on collaboration with foreign artists and on adding more English lyrics. But still, their overall direction for 2019 remains unclear till now.

If you will notice, I skipped Criterion No. 3 to No. 10, as I wanted to focus more on what they must improve. These are all given five points each. Skipped also two criteria on 1theK, which has five and zero points, respectively. Also, the criteria related to dance were removed, as they did not feature their dance.

Honestly, it’s tiring to raise points for improvement if they don’t act on it. So, I have to give a failing grade, though they are one of my most favorite groups in K-Pop. I hope that this review will tell that they have to do something on the issues I explained earlier.

1the9 (원더나인) – Spotlight, Domino, The Story: MV Reviews

For our another music video review, we will feature another newbie group called 1the9 with their three various songs released last April. For a little bit info, they are the winners of a survival show called Under 19. The members are Doyum, Jinsung, Taewoo, Yechan, Taekhyeon, Yongha, Sungwon, Seunghwan, and Junseo.

And for the first time, we will review their three MVs at the same time. It was due to their simultaneous release of these songs last April. This article will be very long, so please have patience while reading.

(Side Note: Pardon also for the days missed in reviewing other music videos. As one of equipments were used, it might take long before I finish writing publishing some other MV reviews. As for MOMOLAND’s recent release, I’ll have to do it some other time.)

We’ll later discover how we will rate them separately. You may play either one of the three videos, or all of them, before proceeding to the review proper:

Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline

Domino: (5 points) The storyline is very straightforward. At the first phase of the video, they featured the members who after a series of talks, agreed to dance together. The rest of the video focuses mostly on their dance.

Spotlight: (5 points) The two members were DJs serving on the campus radio station. They then engaged the students to listen on their performance. However, it turned out that the students wil have to see them dance too. After being “apprehended” by campus heads, they continued dancing.

The Story: (5 points) This MV portrays the different paths boys undertake in enterting a university, and the struggles in knowing each other. As they are introducing themselves, they share their talents little by little. Only the love for music binds them. And despite different challenges they face in featuring themselves in music and dance, they finally accomplished the said dream.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear

Domino: (5 points) Their theme revolving on purely dance is very consistent.

Spotlight: (5 points) They made a good choice on featuring themes consistently. They featured the modern styles and campus vibe throughout the whole video.

The Story: (5 points) They also featured the campus side throughout the video.

Appearance

  1. The music video as a whole must be colorful

Domino: (4 points) Quite lacking in color.

Spotlight and The Story: (5 points each)

  1. Must be done in good tasteAll songs: (5 points each)
  1. Does not celebrate Halloween, Easter, or similar celebrationsAll songs: (5 points each)
  1. Does not feature astrologyAll songs: (5 points each)
  1. Less horror is featured in the video – All songs: (5 points each)
  1. Not too revealing outfits – All songs: (5 points each)

Music

  1. Ability of the music to excite the listener

Domino and Spotlight: (5 points each)

The Story: (4 points) The drama present in the MV shall be enough to excite the listener. However, it would not be enough to spark interest to most of K-Pop fans.

  1. Music should not be deafening on the ears

Domino: (4 points) I gave four points to this, as chorus is deafening.

Spotlight and The Story: (5 points each)

Dance

  1. Dance can be learned easily even by beginners

Domino: (5 points) This deserves a perfect score, as they are making it easy for beginners. Particularly, the easiest parts can be seen at 1:33 – 1:47 and 2:32 – 2:47.

Spotlight: (4 points) I gave this rating, as points for improvement must be considered. These are on 2:00 – 2:05 and 3:40 – 3:45, where I questioned if the steps can be followed easily. Other than that, the easiest dance moves are on pre-chorus.

The Story: (4 points) The dance steps featured in the last part of the video can be easily learned. However, they should have featured it further.

  1. Dance must not be too sensual

All songs: (5 points each)

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated

Domino: (5 points) They make it fairly simple to teach moral lesson, and that is on teamwork. They are following up on each other and are doing various meetups before beginning their dance.

Spotlight: (5 points) By the title, itself, this implies the opportunity that must be taken once we are featured on the spotlight.

The Story: (5 points) This is on interacting with our fellow people. Let them know us, and let ourselves know them. Let them share their talents, and let us share ours.

Another moral lesson that can be seen involves on bullying (6:16 – 6:28). If we can, we have to defend those who are weak and unable to fight back.

Another thing that can be learned from the video is not to give up. Despite so many challenges we are facing, and despite various frustrations, this should not hamper our willingness to face the same and overcome it.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers

Domino: (1 point) Sorry. Haven’t seen something beneficial from them.

Spotlight: (4 points) An instance featuring an old payphone (at 1:43) will make one aware on what our parents and grandparents used, at the time cellphones and smartphones were not yet available.

spotlight phone

Also, by featuring what’s inside the radio station, they might raise awareness on another mainstream media. This also hopes to open young radio aspirants in their respective localities.

spotlight radio

The Story: (5 points) At 7:55, a member is engaged in songwriting. Hope this feature inspires other artists to do the same, considering that fresh set of music is needed to keep the music going as a whole.

the story songwriting

At 10:58 – 11:18, they are featuring themselves playing arcade games. By doing it, hope this let viewers visit and return to the games the youth (70s – 90s) previously played that time.

the story arcadethe story arcade2

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video

Domino: (4 points) This can be seen at the first twenty seconds of the video. Other than that, I did not find other scenes funny, as the next three minutes are focused on dance.

Spotlight: (10 points) Proceed to 4:20. Remember the storyline? That was in itself very funny. The students just go on with their activity after being “reprimanded”.

The Story: (10 points) Look at 1:20 – 1:24, where a boy starts to walk by dragging his feet.

the story walking

Also, at 1:28 – 1:44, where the two boys who supposedly received “punishment” flex their muscles, as a way to ease the pain.

the story punishment

Another funniest thing would be on 11:19 – 11:32, where the nine, upon seeing their instructor, tried to flee from what would be the punishment or scrutiny, only to find out that they will be punished the next morning. It was funny how they act without teacher watching at them.

the story runningthe story punishment2

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media

Domino: (4 points) This might make it up to mainstream media, but lacks the hype needed to make it to the top charts.

Spotlight: (4 points) Same thing applies to this song.

The Story: (3 points) I suppose this will not be picked by media, due to its nature as a slow song.

Spotlight:

  1. Review by other sites

Domino: (5 points)

KPopReviewed described the song as an opener, and an “intriguing start”. The tempo present in the song further engages the listeners, and the vocals fit very well. Overall this is a good start for their album.

TheBiasList told that Crush’s composition of the song “fits well” into the group. While not favoring the usual pop and R&B tunes present, the song had been consistent enough. The tricks presented in the song will give surprise, something that the reviewer viewed as with “more power” than ever.

Spotlight: (3 points)

KPopReviewed noted that the song follows Latin pop, and it does not help in making the group stand out. Added to the lack of it was the electric guitar, which should have made a powerful grip at the end. While overall, the track was okay, it was “very typical”. On their performance, the most favorite was on the post-chorus section.

TheBiasList tagged the song also as a new concept of Latin pop, and as a follow-up version of a song from NCT127. The lines were awkward, and childish, and it was not something to be looked back for.

The Story: (4 points)

KPopReviewed noted the slow tempo, which suggests reflection of the group and their appreciation for all who are behind their success. The only problem is that it’s frequently used by Produce 101 (but for me, never mind.)

  1. Review of the music video as a whole

Domino: (4 points) I enjoyed their dance well. Though the storyline and the dance is fairly simple, this deserves better recognition by other K-Pop fans. However, one lacking factor for this was they didn’t prominently feature Crush, considering that he is also included in this song.

Spotlight: (5 points) As with Domino, I enjoyed their dance, and also their storyline. They made also a good deal contrasting the campus vibe, known for rigidity (as campuses follow rules), with the alley vibe, known for less restrictions (as the place tell you can do what you want).

It also presents the story in a different way. While they are dancing inside the campus, they imagine that they are outside of it.

The Story: (5 points) This deserves a perfect score, as this is the first time that they used this to connect the dots behind previous two songs. This also serves as synthesis of what they are, what they want to be, and how they do it.

  1. Other factors

Domino:

  • Shares with other songs (5 points). At 0:32 – 0:46, their tune shares almost similar tune with Oneus’ Valkyrie at its first fifteen (15) seconds.

Spotlight:

  • Shares concept from other groups (5 points). This refers to their setting where they almost copied the brick-and-fence setting from SEVENTEEN’s “Very Nice.”

spotlight nicesvt nice

The Story:

  • Resembles other stars (5 points). At 6:50, a member quite resembles Taehyung (V) of BTS.

the story taehyung

All videos:

  • Uploads the video to 1theK (5 points each). This is in consideration of utilizing the video channel in promoting their content.
  • Features the 1theK logo (0 points each).

1the9 is part of 1theK group.

No choice but to rate it at zero points. Ever wondered why 1theK itself didn’t care to feature it, considering that it also manages three out of nine members. It should have featured the logo, even as a simple poster on the wall.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating (Separate):

  • Domino: 82.73%
  • Spotlight: 90.91%
  • The Story: 90.91%

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating (Consolidated): 88.18%

Final Words

Again, this is the first time I reviewed all three in a single article. And so far, this is the only time in K-Pop that a group released more MVs in a single track (except TXT, which released recently their follow-up song called Cat and Dog.)

Pardon also for the delay. It was supposed to be finished last week, but considering the hectic schedule, it was only finished last Monday. However, this afforded me enough time to review these thoroughly.

It needs a little push for them to stand out. However, artwise, I appreciate these, and I find these interesting. I hope to see them improving on their next comeback, as they made a good start on these tracks.

Love Advice No. 100

Tatalakayin natin sa artikulong ito ang tungkol sa Love Advice, at ang may-akda mismo. Ito na rin ang self-reflection ng may-akda tungkol sa pag-ibig sa loob ng limang taon ng paghahatid ng payo.

Malayo na ba ang narating? Meron pa bang isyu ngayon? At ano ang plano sa hinaharap, sa susunod na limang taon? Alamin natin dito:


Madalas naririnig natin ito:

Bakit minsan hindi ma-apply ang advice sa sarili?

My Answer:

Simple lang.

Una, madaling sabihin, mahirap gawin.

Kung nababasa ninyo ang mga dati kong love advices, puro “in theory” at “in practice” lang ako. Pero unti-unti na akong hinubog na maging realista. Dala-dala ko ito hanggang sa pagsusulat ng love advice na ito.

Maari ding dahil iba ang sitwasyon nila sa sitwasyon natin. Merong mga factors na kinokonsider natin pag nagbibigay ng payo, pero hindi nakonsidera pag tayo naman ang tinamaan.

Minsan, mas madaling i-solve ang love problem na nakasulat, dahil madali lang tumbukin ang problema at mag-isip ng solusyon. Di tulad sa actual practice na pang-SOCO ang imbestigasyon sa totoong problema. Mas kumplikado, at mas maraming bagay na dapat ikonsidera.

Naging mahirap din sa akin na i-apply ang mga payo na ibinigay ko. Alam ko na kapag tinamaan ka ng pag-ibig, kahit nagmumukhang tanga lang, gagawin para lang sa kanya.

Findings

Sa tagal ng pagbibigay ng payo, ano ba ang napansin ng may-akda sa atin, lalo na sa pag-ibig?

  • Simpleng bagay, ginagawang komplikado. Kung tutuusin, kung may feelings na sa isa’t isa, aminin na. Puwede nang maging kayo. Tapos ang usapan. Pero sabi ng iba, hindi ganoon ang nangyayari (assuming na okay na ang lahat). May pagdadaanan pa daw na proseso.

Kung ito ang paiiralin natin, isipin ang magiging consequence nito: awayan, siraan, at naputol na ugnayan. Kasi kung ididiscourage ang isa, lalo na ang mga babae, na aminin ang feelings, anong gagawin natin? Maghulaan tayo? Lalong di natin alam kung saan tayo pupunta.

  • Nalilito tayo sa pag-ibig. Crush pa lang, mahal na. Naka-sex pa lang, mahal na. Doon pa lang sa pagkakaiba ng “crush” at “mahal” ay nahihirapan na. Paano pa kaya sa difference ng “sex” at “love”? Totoo kaya ang nararamdaman natin, o nahuhumaling lang sa kanya?
  • Isa pang problema ay hindi tayo realista. Mahirap din pag lagi tayong nag-iimagine nang di kinokonsidera ang reyalidad ng lovelife. At lalong mahirap din kung dito pa lang ay pinahihirapan natin ang ating mga sarili.

Masakit ang reyalidad, pero iyon ang totoo, kahit bali-baligtarin mo pa. Kaya nga pag nagbibigay ako ng payo, minsan ako ay prangka at brutal.

Short history

Paano nga ba nagsimula ang Love Advice sa site na ito?

Hindi na ito bago sa akin. Noong 2012 ay sinubukan kong mag-open ng Facebook page tungkol sa love advice. Dahil nabalitaan ko na ang liligawan ko sana ay buntis na pala. High school, bata na, buntis pa. Totoong masakit ito sa akin. Sa pag-open ng Facebook page, sinabi ko sa sarili na tutulungan ko ang mga sawing tulad ko thru Love Advice.

Mahirap para sa akin na i-promote ito, dahil mahirap humakot ng likers. Mahirap ding maghintay ng followers. Umabot sa punto na sinabihan akong “baliw” sa pag-promote nito. After makakuha ng 2 likes, hindi ko na ito itinuloy.

Ilang buwan after kong buksan ang TweetNewscaster noong 2014, ibinigay ko na ang first love advice. Kinuha ko ang unang love problem sa unofficial FB page ni Papa Jack. Dahil walang sumasagot sa page, ako na ang rumesponde. Ang mga naunang artikulo ay nakadepende pa sa tao na umaasa kay Papa Jack, hanggang sa nag-iba na ako ng istilo.

Marami na din akong nagawang love advice, at ang plano ko pa noong 2015 ay paabutin ito sa isandaan (100). Pero dahil na rin sa sobrang dami ng delay, ngayon lang ito natupad.

Sa loob ng limang taon, nagbigay ako ng payo sa love problems ng iba’t ibang estudyante. May ilang essays din sa pag-ibig. May mga nagpadala na ng e-mail sa akin. Ginawa ko din ito kahit matindi ang pinagdaanan ko noon sa CPA board exam. At gumawa pa ako ng sariling love problem sa ilang artikulo. Lahat ng ito ay ginagawa ko, dahil gusto kong itama ang maling pagtingin sa pag-ibig. At hinihiling ko na sana pag umibig ang isang tao – kahit sino pa siya, ito ay sa paraan na hindi (masyadong) masasaktan ang damdamin ng isa’t isa.

Personal story

Kung ako naman ang tatanungin tungkol diyan, doon lang tayo nagkaroon ng problema.

Hindi ko maamin kung ano ang nararamdaman ko dahil mahirap talaga ito. Very risky kung tutuusin. Paano kung irereject ako pag inamin ko ang feelings? Nangyari na iyan sa akin dalawang beses – isa noong college, at isa nang nasa unang trabaho pa lang ako. Alam niyo na kung anong nangyari – iniiwasan na ako.

Sa ibang kaso naman, ito ay tungkol sa “agawan”. Tanda ko noong high school, nang meron akong dalawang niligawan, doon pa lang ay kaagad na nagkaroon ng boyfriend. Ang weird, di ba? At di diyan natapos ang problema. Nito lang ay may niligawan din ako, pero may indikasyon na lumalapit ang loob nila sa isa’t isa. Doon pa lang, sila na talaga.

Sa totoo lang, wala sa kanila ang hindi nagbigay ng sakit ng ulo sa akin. Habang isinusulat ko ito, naalala ko kung ano ang mga ginawa ko, at umabot sa punto na nawalan na ako ng respeto sa sarili ko.

Future projects

Dahil meron pa rin sa atin na naghahanap ng payo sa Search Box, tuluy-tuloy pa rin tayo sa paghahatid nito. Sa mga susunod na love advices, sisikapin ko na ibahagi ang reyalidad na natutunan ko mula nang buksan ang site na ito.

At dahil patok din ito kahit sa mga hindi Pilipino, ilulunsad din natin ang Love Advice sa wikang Ingles. Mapapansin kasi na maraming likers ng Love Advice ay hindi Pilipino, at ito ay para na rin sa kanilang kaluwagan.

Final Words

Sa ating ikalimang taon, umabot na tayo sa 100 Love Advice articles, kasama na ito. Kahit na may pagbabago na gagawin, mananatili tayong tapat sa orihinal na misyon: ang magbigay ng payo sa pag-ibig.

Hangad ko na umabot ang lahat ng artikulo sa Love Advice sa maraming tao. Ito rin ang makakatulong sa kanila sa bandang huli.

Maraming salamat sa pagbabasa ng artikulong ito. Sana umabot pa ito sa susunod na limang taon, o higit pa. Alam kong mas marami pa tayong matutulungan dito.

Red Velvet announces comeback song

SEOUL, South Korea – We’re back.

Such was the words of famous K-Pop girl group Red Velvet as they are working for their new release this year. The group targets their comeback to be set next month.

It can be remembered that they made their recent comeback in Japanese called “Sappy.” Meanwhile, Yeri also made her solo music in SM’s Station 3 named “Dear Diary,” and they made another informal comeback, in collaboration with other artists. With fans clamoring again for their presence, the girl group now pledges to fulfill their wish.

Seulgi has something to say on their next performance. “With our wish that we are fulfilling, we may have new concepts in our minds. But we will just pattern the title after our previous ones.”

Seulgi told that the sequence of their past and future releases are as follows:

  1. Bad Boy
  2. Really Bad Boy
  3. Really Really Bad Boy (to be released)
  4. Really Really Really Bad Boy (to be released)
  5. Really Really Really Really Bad Boy (to be released)

Meanwhile, Wendy has something in mind:

  1. 2018: Bad Boy
  2. 2018: Really Bad Boy
  3. 2019: Very Bad Boy
  4. 2020: Extra Bad Boy
  5. 2021: Mega Bad Boy

  9. 2025: Literally Bad Boy
  10. 2026: Ultra Mega Undeniably Bad Boy
  11. 2027: Very Completely Amazingly Surprisingly Mostly Actually Properly Really Bad Boy

For final words, Yeri commented that “We don’t run out of bad boys in this world. We tell them that they are really bad.”

GFRIEND (여자친구) – Sunrise(해야)(Misheard Lyrics)

For this year, we are featuring again GFRIEND, with their song “Sunrise”. This is their lead song in their album “Time for Us”.

Though I find this a bit awkward, I decided to do a misheard of the introduction. With this, I do sincerely hope that they could offer us their new comeback this year.

Considering the misheard lyrics below, the alternate title for this song is “Say Some Modern Victory“. Or alternatively, it may be called as “Super Buyer” or “Suga Shaked A Gag Car.”

Lyrics posted in the video are underlined here.

Considering the misheard lyrics below, the alternate title for this song is “Make Our Genie“.

Lyrics posted in the second video are underlined here.

iKON (아이콘) – Love Scenario (사랑을했다)(Misheard Lyrics)

Hello, guys! We are on our way to iKON, featuring their song Love Scenario.

The group is composed of seven members, namely B.I., Bobby, Jay, Ju-ne, Song, DK, and Chan. It is under YG Entertainment, together with 2NE1, PSY, and Blackpink.

I also chose to do it, as I have not included it in the misheard lyrics video I uploaded earlier (but subsequently included it in another video). Also, the tune is catchy and pleasing to the ears.

Considering the misheard lyrics below, the alternate title for this song is “Make a Jiggle“.

Lyrics posted in the subsequent video are underlined here.

MAMAMOO (마마무) – Paint Me (칠해줘)(Misheard Lyrics)

This time, it is MAMAMOO again, with their song Paint Me.

We are done through with Egotistic and Wind Flower. We will feature this, as this is the first song I encountered when I heard of this group, and that would be the last. I would not do another thing for Starry Night due to lack of time, unless someone requests for it.

Considering the misheard lyrics below, the alternate title for this song is “Jin, Shut Up“. Again, poor Jin. It seems that the group haven’t moved on with BTS’ Jin yet.

Lyrics posted in the video are underlined here.

ASTRO (아스트로) – Always You (너잖아)(Misheard Lyrics)

We are now again with ASTRO, with their song Always You.

I suppose that together with Call Out, that was their only songs for last year.

Considering the misheard lyrics below, the alternate title for this song is “Booger Shop“. That would be gross, considering that they are selling boogers. Just joking.

Lyrics posted in the video are underlined here.

GFRIEND (여자친구) – Memoria (Japanese ver.)(Full English Misheard Lyrics)

This time, we are now going to feature GFRIEND’s Memoria, in its original Japanese version.

The title itself tells of memories we cherish with the ones who had gone before us. While I am doing this misheard lyric, I did not stop crying. Nevertheless, I had to finish this just for you and for all Buddies out there. This will somehow help us listen it with less emotions.

Considering the misheard lyrics below, the alternate title for this song is “Stan A Curry“. While in the first Korean version we deal with memories and death, this time we will focus more on following Stephen Curry, a NBA basketball player. We may consider stanning basketball stars if we like.

Lyrics posted in the video are underlined here.

(We will first feature other misheard lyrics, as I find it difficult for me to finish MV reviews this April and May. Also, I have to release some of them to clear my workspace.)

BVNDIT (밴디트) – Hocus Pocus: MV Review

For our another MV review, we are now featuring another newbie group called BVNDIT, with their debut song called Hocus Pocus. The name of the group stands for “Be Ambitious N Do It”, with members named Yiyeon, Songhee, Jungwoo, Simyeong and Seungeun.

This is a debut group, and it is also equally exciting to do a review of their work. You may watch first their MV before we go to review proper:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 3 points

From the title itself, and on some English words, they tell a little bit of story. While telling the boy (not shown) to wait for them, he is being distracted by tricks and meaningless talk.

I give this score, as I did not understand clearly their storyline.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

So far, the themes consistently used in the video are on the pink shades (on some parts of the video), and on fine dining by royalties (1:18 – 1:27).

Appearance

  1. The music video as a whole must be colorful – 5 points
  1. Must be done in good taste – 5 points
  1. Does not celebrate Halloween, Easter, or similar celebrations – 5 points
  1. Does not feature astrology – 5 points
  1. Less horror is featured in the video – 5 points
  1. Not too revealing outfits – 5 points

Music

  1. Ability of the music to excite the listener – 4 points

I find this song exciting, particularly on the chorus.

  1. Music should not be deafening on the ears – 5 points

Even with the modern tunes present in the song, this is not deafening enough.

Dance

  1. Dance can be learned easily even by beginners – 4 points
  1. Dance must not be too sensual – 5 points

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

The moral lesson that can be considerably seen is on eating together, at 1:17. This presents the value of eating with the family that should be practiced always. It will be a starting point for each member to communicate properly with fellow family members, and possibly, with other persons.

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

Viewers will learn some things that will benefit them.

First is on featuring honey, at 1:26. I suppose that this is rarely seen in supermarkets. By searching the benefits of honey in our daily diet, and by featuring it, they unconsciously teaches viewers to value their health.

Second is on playing piano, at 3:09 and 3:13. Hope this raises viewers’ curiosity on playing one of the classic instruments.

Finally, the music video touches on fine dining by royalties, at the same timestamp. While this may be said of royalties as part of their behavior, actually this applies to all of us who are eating.

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 7 points

Look at 1:09 and 1:13 of the video, where they play pushcarts as if they were babies. It was funny, as we remember the times we do that when we were young. That is the only thing funny in the video.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points

I doubt if this will be picked by mainstream media. Considering that they are new in the field, and they haven’t made hype over their music.

  1. Review by other sites – 3 points

Obsessed and Assessed had been “cautiously excited” with the group’s debut. It confirmed his/her suspicions when he/she got worried over its teasers and follow-up of flutey tune from sister Chungha’s Gotta Go.

The flutey tune became a big factor why the reviewer disliked its MV much. While the music itself is exciting, it was not very “impressive.” Added to that is their being on Chungha’s shadows, wthout experimenting on new music tracks.

On the video, the settings does not reflect much of the girls’ personalities, not to mention that it was “generic.” Choreography was fun and “tame”. The MV as a whole was again, not impressive, and had lost its track on its debut song.

KPopReviewed also noticed the similarities of the girls’ debut to that of Chungha’s MV, but takes on a different approach. It does the same findings on the flutey tune, and noted that the music lacks the rap part frequently heard on virtually all K-Pop songs we hear. It sounds and seems typical, but looks “energetic and fun.”

TheBiasList pointed out that this year was full of newbies, which was the possible factor that will never make other groups stand out. Being “overcrowded”, the blogger made a good assessment that BVNDIT loses chance to showcase their own style by relying on Chungha.

On the music, that only digests tunes K-Pop fans are hearing in the past, and the melody present was “dull.” The sitar, as guitar’s predecessor, would have given them a great advantage if they used it fully.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

As we see it, the group closely resembles other girl groups like WJSN. This is seen on them dining on the table, as we will discuss later.

I find the MV as a whole cool and refreshing to the ears. Also, their scenes are appealing. This will be a good start for them in their next projects, by setting the good mood of the viewers.

  1. Other factors
  • Shares concepts with other groups – 5 points

This criterion refers to three things they share with other groups. First is on 1:17 where they share similar settings with WJSN in their song La La Love (3:13):

Second is on 2:09 where they got the take-my-video concepts from TWICE’s Jihyo in their song Likey (1:42):

Finally is on 2:53, where they supposedly imitated the running scene at GFRIEND’s Sunrise (2:10):

  • Resemblance with other K-Pop stars – 5 points

At 0:52, Jungwoo resembles Eunha of GFRIEND:

Look at 0:18, where Simyeong resembles Jane of MOMOLAND:

And at 0:59, Songhee looks like Soyeon of (G)I-DLE:

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 89.52%

Final Words

This review is based on the MV upon its face. They merit points for them to sufficiently pass this review.

However, they must also consider the points presented by other reviewers, especially on Chungha’s flutey tune. In the present period where newbie groups fight for prominence, it is but necessary for them to present something different to stand out. In their next comeback, hope we might see themselves doing something new, or innovating on previous concepts.

Xander Ford transforms to Marlou

QUEZON CITY, Quezon Province, Philippines – Xander Ford is dead

With several controversies heaped upon Xander Ford on his unprofessionalism, Star Image Artist Management now removes the said name to him last Wednesday, April 24, and instead announced auditions for the next Xander Ford.

Furthermore, Marlou is indefinitely suspended from any engagement “without management’s consent and approval until his suspension is lifted.” If breached, management will take legal actions against the hopeless star.

In a statement released by Star Image Artist Management:

On the hopeless case, Star Image further commented:

“We did our part as the management. We enrolled him to a Personality Development institution to teach him good manners. And yet he chose to be hard-headed and uncontrollable stubborn individual. Even his parents are unhappy with his actions.”

“In other words, sinukuan na siya ng mga magulang niya. (His parents gave up on him.) You don’t know Marlou personally. He was not being bullied. This is a fair warning to all who want to try showbusiness. Be humble always.”

The production staff told that, “Dahil siya ay si Xander Ford na, may bagong bihis na ng kanyang pagkatao. Siya sana ang magiging role model ng kabataan ngayon.” (Because he is Xander Ford, he has new personality. He is expected to be a role model to the youth.)

Pero anyare? Sinira na niya ang magandang pangalan. We won’t tolerate that. May mas deserving pa sa kanya.” (But what happened? He tarnished the good name. We won’t tolerate that. Someone deserves more this name than him.)

Too much problems

It should be remembered that Marlou became the most-trending personality after his change in personality, to the point that he was afterwards given various projects. However, Marlou’s recent stint in Home Sweet Home did not last, even if he was given chances to appear again. Also, he rarely engages in various projects under Kapamilya Network.

In its statement, the main problem was on his attitude, which served as grounds for revocation of his name. This was evident in an open-air show in Angono, Rizal and Sta. Cruz, Laguna last November 2017, where he is expected to perform. At that time, he was in a room, taking a rest over his bashers.

This was followed by distasteful remarks with fellow Kapamilya star Kathryn Bernardo and other fellow artists. Added to the fuel was his utter disrespect towards ABS-CBN marshals.

Necessary action

Star Image finally added, “Artists like Daniel Padilla and Enrique Gil normally have their set of bashers. However, no action is necessary as they perform well.”

“If he has so many bashers, then something is wrong with him. We do not overlook the comments by netizens. We took the necessary step to protect our image. The name ‘Xander Ford’ is not a right, but a privilege granted to deserving artists.”

“With his unprofessionalism, Xander Ford is now dead and Marlou is now alive again.”

By revoking right over Xander Ford’s name, this will in effect revert his name to Marlou Mortelle.

Reactions

Many netizens have been happy over the news, and expressed their full support over the network’s project. As a response, Star Image launched the audition for male aspirants:

Upon hearing of Marlou’s news, Janella Salvador retorted, “ I won’t work with him na. He’s so G-R-R.”

It was also reported that Daniel Padilla’s brother auditioned to covet the name, supposedly as to follow the footsteps of Teen King. Brothers sometimes would share similar names (Daniel John Ford and Xander Ford). However, the famous star denied the rumor.

As of press time, Marlou did not gave a word over this issue.

IZ*ONE (아이즈원) – Violeta (비올레타): MV Review

This time, we are now reviewing another newbie group called IZ*ONE with their song Violeta. For a little bit of intro, this is composed of Wonyoung, Sakura, Yuri, Yena, Yujin, Nako, Eunbi, Hyewon, Hitomi, Chaewon, Minjoo, and Chaeyeon, which debuted last October. This is their second lead song, and this is my first time to do a review of them.

I recently had more time to do it, as I am getting curious on what they will offer to us in this song. Actually, I am pressured to finish this due to lack of time. But before reviewing it, you may watch first their MV here:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 3 points

The story revolves on the girls searching for beauty, and then celebrates it at the end.

Pardon for the rating, but I did not see the storyline behind this music video.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The themes presented in this video are more on shades of violet, different kinds of glasses, and flowers. These give added beauty to their MV.

Appearance

  1. The music video as a whole must be colorful – 5 points
  1. Must be done in good taste – 5 points
  1. Does not celebrate Halloween, Easter, or similar celebrations – 5 points
  1. Does not feature astrology – 5 points
  1. Less horror is featured in the video – 5 points
  1. Not too revealing outfits – 5 points

Music

  1. Ability of the music to excite the listener – 4 points

Best description for this is exciting, but not enough for me to be determined on hearing the song.

  1. Music should not be deafening on the ears – 4 points

The song was not too deafening, except for the chorus part, particularly at the highest note.

Dance

  1. Dance can be learned easily even by beginners – 5 points

This deserves a perfect score, as I can “read” the dance steps with ease. In fact, the easiest dance moves are on 2:07 – 2:12, and at the last nine seconds of the video.

  1. Dance must not be too sensual – 5 points

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 2 points

Pardon also. Had they considered including the moral lesson in the video?

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

Viewers can learn something beneficial from IZ*ONE’s music video:

First of all is on appreciating the beauty of nature, particularly on flowers. This will help us somehow not to take for granted flowers we see everyday on the streets, and also in our houses.

Second is on using glasses to beautify our houses. This will give added elegance and beauty to our homes. These are featured by the following:

Chandeliers at 0:44 and 1:06…

Glass mirrors at 1:15…

Glass box at 0:42…

And glass prism at 0:29.

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 1 point

Sorry again. I did not see something humorous in the music video.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points

This might not make it to mainstream media, though their popularity is rising. It is because the tone was not exciting to tickle the ears of non-K Pop fans.

  1. Review by other sites – 4 points

Obsessed and Assessed noted the song as following the lead of its debut one, that is progressive. While it was “definitely fun,” the blogger was confused on this song. While some points enumerated need to be considered, it nevertheless praised the song for its “punchy and addictive” nature.

On the video, though the sceneries were plain, it was better as they added more fixtures in the video, like flowers and chandeliers. And on the choreography, that was their best so far with their detailed yet simple moves. As a whole, the MV is just as fine.

(Side Note: O&A was inactive for the whole of March because of K-Pop scandals. As a piece of advice to the blogger, what happened during the scandals last March should not hinder him/her in doing MV reviews. If all K-Pop groups stopped debuting and doing comebacks this March because of this issue, then that’s the time we feel disappointed.)

KPopReviewed felt that the first verse was not as captivating, but is so starting at the pre-chorus. The flair of the tune and the voices were beautifully performed. It noted also the nature of the MV, which describes the preference of color violet. Most of the contents in the video were fine, and exciting, to say the least.

TheBiasList did not enjoy the song and the MV as it shares the same issues with the debut song. It suggested that the production will add more content next time, and not use their songs as merely cliffhangers.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

They made their music video in a beautiful manner, and I do appreciate their performance as a whole. I also view it as a sequel to their debut MV La Vie En Rose.

From what I see in the video, various things featured here can be interpreted as follows:

Glasses, which represent reflection of themselves;

Flowers, which represents the beauty they want to show;

And water, which represents the purity of their intentions.

  1. Other factors
  • Resemblance with other members – 5 points

At 0:38, Chaeyeon resembles Chaeryeong of ITZY in the latter’s MV of Dalla Dalla.

Haha. 🙂 Sorry, I only knew now why they resembled that much, as they were sisters. Anyway, that will also be a positive factor for this criterion.

On the other hand, at 1:22, Minju resembles Sana of TWICE in her Fancy MV (at 0:46).

  • Shares concepts with other groups – 5 points

Look at 2:21, where the girl lies with the flowers:

Looks like it was the same concept shared with Mino of WINNER in his solo “Fiance” (0:22):

Second is on 0:51, where another holds a flower in its branch:

The pose shares with that of Hwasa in her song TWIT (2:26), where she holds a bird.

They also shared the burning flower concept from CLC’s NO (2:42) in their short feature at 2:19.

Finally, the pose at 2:58 in the hallway resembles that of Dreamcatcher in their song Piri (at 1:04).

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 81.90%

Final Words

The MV was not bad really. But some improvements must be done by the group in their next comeback. They have to make their storyline clear, and add at least one funny scene. Also, they have to inject moral lessons in their next MV.

Hope this review guides IZ*ONE in their next comeback. There will always be room for improvement, nevertheless, this was beautifully made and thought-of.
