Your Article Is One Of The Best – TNC Other News Awards 2019

Hello, dear readers! As promised, we will award articles that give different side of the news. This is TNC Other News Awards 2019.

From unlimited articles being published by 97 awesome bloggers who follow this site (as of this writing), the author picked Top 100 Articles for 2019. Out of 100 articles, the author picked the best articles that embody the ideals of the site.

This is to also express apologies for delaying this so many times. But now, here it is.

This is exclusively for TweetNewscaster’s followers, but other articles from non-followers are also accepted with qualifications (which as of now, none submitted). Any or all of the following criteria are used in selecting the articles:

  1. Is it funny?
  2. Will it push everybody to do something good?
  3. Does it show the other side of the news?
  4. Does it lift the mood of his/her readers?

I’ll give the reasons why I chose this article as one of the hundred best articles so far. I’ll shift languages depending on how is it used in the article. Articles will be awarded via citations, so for our fellow bloggers, prepare if you will receive so many Pingbacks. This will also be your incentive to write more lighthearted articles and spread the fun to our different readers.

Out of one hundred articles, that I will show later, here are the prime articles picked by the author:

Here are the Top 100 Articles by TweetNewscaster (in no particular order):

  1. A Day in Valladolid – Darly Blog: I chose this article, as it features one of the historical places in Spain. Travelling makes one go down memory lane.
  2. A Kdrama Starter Guide – Kpop-Khop: Consistent with the tagline “Other News,” this is the other approach on appreciating K-dramas. Though the author is not an avid fan of dramas, this will be helpful in portraying the other side of Korean culture to the readers.
  3. 10 Easy-to-Follow Steps to Writing an Amazing Blog Post – The Art of Blogging: Cristian Mihai explains the steps in simple yet effective manner.
  4. How to Stop Being “The Invisible Blogger” – The Art of Blogging: This presents the other side of blogging that only few would dare to discuss with. I commented that this is being needed, especially that we are starting to reach out to wider audience. Some points presented by the blogger are being noted for improvement. While I am writing this article – or other articles – just for fun, this does not change the fact that readers clamor for content they can relate with.
  5. A walk of gritty road – fountainhues: TweetNewscaster chose this article, as this made us realize the value of facing challenges as key to any sucesses. As her line puts it, “Failure is success in mist and fog.”
  6. Champagne and Freckles – Darly Blog: Recently, the author published an article on how to be beautiful. This article will deal on another tip on how to do beautiful make-up. Another caveat: Watch out for her detailed explanation and make-up kits!
  7. Cutting Ties – Write Them All: I chose this article because of moral lessons we can learn from it. Cutting ties with other people is more complicated than maintaining relationships. This makes us learn to stop, think, and evaluate the possible outcomes and consequences before making the big decision. She says that “one day you might need them desperately,” and this is the absolute truth. This will be the author’s guide in dealing with love advices regarding break-up and move on.
  8. Free Targeted Traffic – Pauls Pages Too: Describes on how to promote your page for free, using a trick.
  9. Is BTS Influential – Kpop-Khop: I chose this article because of the influence BTS possesses, as they were the first boyband to hit American charts and get attention from the Western media. This short article describes the rise of the K-Pop boy group, as they are featured in Time Magazine.

It can be noted too that they do have considerable share of fans in Philippines, though their songs did not make it all the way to mainstream media.

  1. Life Lessons With BTS #3 – Kpop-Khop: Addiction with gadgets is a problem that becomes more serious. Even BTS are not exempted from this. The fellow blogger explained every important line, point by point, on the problems resulting from too much time on cellphones. And it’s good that BTS had faced their problem and everybody’s problem on looking at the screen.

In particular, I highly recommended the write-ups of our fellow blogger on lessons from BTS. Their influence stems from not just being a mere boyband, but on sharing life lessons that must be known by everybody, especially from the ARMY.

  1. My Life Stories #1 – First Love – Kpop-Khop: This is one of the favorite articles, as it recounts the day when kids do play with love, or having crushes. The blogger had explained his childhood memories, the times when we were once kids roaming freely.
  2. Talunan – Shaira Mae’s Reputation: Nakakatuwang basahin ang artikulong ito, dahil sinalamin nito kung gaano kahirap maghanap ng trabaho, at ang realization na baka ikaw at ako ay natatalo din.

Dumating din sa point na naiisip ko na baka nga talunan din ako. Hindi rin kasi maiaalis ang katotohanan na ang mga kasama ko ay may mga nararating na din sa buhay.

Regarding sa trabaho sa gobyerno, wala nang mas totoo pa sa sinasabi niya. Idagdag ko lang din na mas madaling makahanap ng panggobyernong trabaho sa Maynila kaysa sa probinsya, dulot na rin ng matinding kakulangan sa empleyado.

  1. Nothing’s Gonna Stop You – Write Them All: I chose this short article because it gives inspiration to CPA board takers, and even all people, who are facing challenges while pursuing their dreams.
  2. Hanggang drawing na lang ba tayo? – Shaira Mae’s Reputation: Ipinakita nito ang tindi ng frustrations ng mga plano na hindi natutuloy – o sa ibang salita, hanggang drawing na lang. Ang nakakatuwa pa, nai-post niya ang parody meme ng Eheads. Tinatanong doon kung hanggang ilang drawing ang iguguhit para matupad ito.
  3. Thousand Steps – Write Them All: I chose this article because it illustrates the frustrations on amending the past mistakes, and on not going the path desired. This also shows the challenges the fellow blogger faced as she works as an Accountant in Dubai.

The article closely parallels that of the author, though different story. By reading this, it should push us to work hard, have an open mind, and push for economic reforms in our country.

This also helps us to reflect on what we should have done, for us to correct our mistakes in case it happens again.

  1. Telling People I Like K-Pop – Kpop-Khop: The article tells the other side of being a fan not discussed anywhere else. I may have not yet seen or read any article on how to filter a K-Pop fan from a non-fan. This is the best way to define the difference between the two in an easy way.
  2. 10 Random K-pop Questions – Kpop-Khop: The other side of K-Pop every fan should know. This also serves as self-assessment if you are really hooked to K-Pop. My answers on these questions can be seen here.
  3. A Whole New Love??? – Fully Dilated Ideas: Isa ito sa mga kakaibang kuwento at payo tungkol sa pag-ibig.

Sinasalamin ng artikulong ito ang masakit na katotohanan tungkol sa pag-ibig. Maaring umibig ka sa kahit sino, pero mahirap makuha ang pag-ibig galing sa kanya. At kapag nasaktan, kailangan pa ng panahon para maghilom ang sugat.

Idagdag ko lang din doon sa “there is always a risk in trying,” gusto ko lang sabihin na ang sistema ngayon ang dahilan kung bakit mahina ang loob na aminin ang nararamdaman sa isang tao. Dinidiscourage kasi nito ang mga gustong aminin ang nararamdaman Sa totoo lang. Kahit bali-baligtarin mo pa.

  1. Kathang Iniisip – Fully Dilated Ideas: Habang kinukuwento ng maganda nating blogger ang tungkol sa kantang ito, doon ako nakaramdam ng matinding kirot sa puso. Mahirap kasing umibig kung ang panghahawakan mo lang ay ang pagmamahal sa kanya, samantalang wala pa siyang feelings na binibigay sa iyo.

(Side Note: Isa pa, parang pamilyar din sa akin ang kantang iyan, dahil nadinig ko na iyan dati.)

  1. Glimpses of Benevolence – SUBDUED FLAMBOYANCE: This exactly defines the Christian principle of treating our neighbors, as what Jesus Christ told us. Being a neighbor is being helpful even in times of need.
  2. Have the kind of purpose that really make you a better person 😘😘 – Success Inspirers’ World: I chose this short yet inspiring article, because this teaches us to have a better purpose. Having a purpose will serve as guide for us to reach our dreams, set plans, and make a commitment to fulfill it.
  3. Good Kpop Songs with Bad MVs – Kpop-Khop: Though this might sound harsh, but I chose this article as this is very frank and straight to the point. Aside from this, the blogger also gives points for improvement. This is also the principle TweetNewscaster uses in reviewing music videos.
  4. How to Get BTS songs on the Radio! – Kpop-Khop: This deals with promoting BTS music on the radio as one of the strategies to make them known. Highly recommended especially for PH ARMYs who are also hooked up to the radio.

(Side Note: I recently heard SEVENTEEN’s Oh My! on the radio, and hope PH ARMYs might request their radio/TV stations to do the same.)

  1. I’m Taking The 5:30 A.M Challenge Here’s Why… – Kid Mentalist: I highly recommend this article if we want to be successful in life.

Somehow this helps. The point is that waking up early gives us added time that we can use for our self-enjoyment and self-care. Another point is to make self-discipline a habit, as mere waking up requires control of bad habits.

  1. Katamaran – Fully Dilated Ideas: Bukod sa aral tungkol sa katamaran, nakakatawa ang hirit ng blogger: “Magpapakalobo lang yang mga taba mo sa katawan at happy happy joy joy ang peg ng mga cholesterol mo.” Iniisip ko kung paano magpapakasaya ang mga cholesterol sa katawan. Kung full blast ba.
  2. Visible Bobby Pin Trend DIY – Darly – Lifestyle Blog: This shows the other side of donning yourself with bobby pins. You can create it on your own, with these simple steps. This also teaches the readers on how to be creative.
  3. Subtle expectations… – fountainhues: This poem focuses more on stress and depression. And it focuses more on the negative side of stress, and that is losing focus, particularly on purpose in life.
  4. My little mess turns 12.. 😍 – fountain hues : The blogger showed her love for sister as the latter turns twelve, via a poem. There she described her intertaction with her younger sister, and that is enough to move the hearts of those who will read it.
  5. Theories are patterns without value. What counts is action. – Viral Images: The blogger shared different quotes from various persons, which points that action is needed. Theories are theories, and are good only in the minds. However, the harsh reality that we are facing will favor action over theories.
  6. 90’s BABY – DARLY – LIFESTYLE BLOG: While many will recall memories from the 90s (like me), Darly presents a different kind of perspective of it. She just portrayed what the era feels like by her looks and by the way she dresses. It embodies an era where recent generations were still conservative in their approach.
  7. The worst has already passed – SUBDUED FLAMBOYANCE: This is a poetic article that tackles more on depression. It imparts a very touching message that “the worst has already passed.” Also very helpful to be read by those who are depressed.
  8. Get Loud! – Granny Smith: Unleashed: This tells a story of a runner who had undergone difficult situations just to be on the race. Point is that determination and focus are the keys to success. Another lesson is that even if we have different races to finish, we have to finish it at our own pace. There’s no need to rush this, as long as you keep moving towards your goal. Hope this inspires also many CPA reviewes.
  9. A Different Kind of ‘I Miss You’ – Granny Smith: Unleashed: The article speaks for itself, as this story is a different way of missing each other. Not being with your boyfriend makes one miss him, and the feeling of missing him is such an understatement, as in this case. This is not to mention thinking of him everyday due to the nature of his work as part of armed forces.
  10. gusto kong pumatay ng oras – deviationcummeditation: Naiiba ang istilo ng kanyang pagsulat. Maikli man, naiparating nito ang reyalidad ng paghahanap ng trabaho. Hindi man maganda na may bloodshot eyes, puwede rin naman itong mabawasan sa paunti-unting idlip.
  11. halika na – deviationcummeditation: Sa kasong ito, itinuturo nito na dapat tayong makinig sa kapwa natin, lalo na kung sila’y may iniindang problema.
  12. Never avoid hard work 💪❤ – SUCCESS INSPIRERS’ WORLD: This makes us learn that hardwork will give us more strength, and inspires us to do something better.
  13. Have you ever asked yourself what could be good about life – SUCCESS INSPIRERS’ WORLD: I can relate more to her story. There were times that I asked myself the same question, considering that I had undergone so many challenges. This led me to the answer that many good things abound in our lives, on times we don’t notice, or things we normally take for granted. This lets us think of our purpose in life.
  14. Have the kind of purpose that really make you a better person 😘😘 – SUCCESS INSPIRERS’ WORLD: This tells us that in finding our real purpose in life, we have to make a good purpose. Regardless of the purpose made, this can make or break us as a person.
  15. How to keep our cool and optimism in emotionally charged situations – One Positive Blog: There are many times that we cannot avoid things we cannot control, or times that we feel frustrated. Main point emphasized in this article is the need to respond positively over situations like these. One might need these tips mentioned in extreme situations
  16. Miss Q & A Beklamation Part 2 An FDI edition – Fully Dilated Ideas: Ipinakita nito ang naiibang balita sa pamamagitan ng pagsagot din sa mga tanong sa mga kandidata. May sense din naman ang mga sagot, pero meron din akong dagdag na komento diyan:

Aakuin mo ba ang isang kasalanan para pagtakpan ang taong mahal mo? Maaring sa una ay puwede mo pa siyang kunsintihin. Pero pag paulit-ulit na, doon mo pa lang siya hahayaang matuto sa mga pagkakamali niya.

Alin ang pipiliin mo, maging experto sa iisang bagay lang o kaunting kaalaman sa maraming bagay? Agree din ako sa magandang blogger. Isa pa, ang reyalidad na mismo ang magsasabi na may potensyal ang mga may kaunting alam sa maraming bagay.

Tumingin ka sa mga multi-purpose cooperatives. Kumpara sa ibang mga kooperatiba na iisa lang ang linya ng negosyo, mas malaki ang potensyal na umunlad kahit kaunti lang ang kaalaman ng mga MPC.

Ganoon din sa mga CPAs. Normally, kami ay may kaunting kaalaman din sa maraming bagay. Sari-sari pa nga kung tutuusin: General Accounting, Financial, Managerial, Bookkeeping, Taxation, Management Advisory, at marami pang iba.

Kahit sa blog ko ay ganoon din. Kakaunti lang din ang alam ko, pero marami akong mga paksang hinahawakan tulad ng Recipes, Entertainment, Love Advice, at K-Pop.

  1. The Rocky Milky Way. – Fully Dilated Ideas: Pinili ko ito bilang isa sa mga pinakamagandang artikulo dahil sa mensahe nito. Regardless kung ano ang mga problemang hinaharap natin, kailangan nating lumaban. Nakakatuwa din na naiapply niya ang “stages of grief” sa pang-araw-araw na buhay, na normally ay nangyayari sa isang namatayan.
  2. Warning there’s a hidden truth about fat that’s keeping you from losing it – Advices 4 all: This tells the harsh reality everyone should know, particularly on health. The other side of health is far way worse than one might think. Sadly, the claims made that they are fat free and sugar free are all but a sham. Worse, the government plays as if they are on our side when it comes to health, but it’s not. And sadly, these have not been backed up by strong medical researches.

In this case, people should be aware of the long-term consequences of eating something artificial.

  1. What the Japanese know about eating that keeps them healthy and long lived – Advices 4 all: While most of us have been bent on eating too much conventional foods, this speaks of the other side where food gives them long lives.

This tells an important lesson on eating from the Japanese, especially from Okinawans. Why do these people live long lives? Simple. They eat fresh. They eat natural and healthy foods. Unlike most of us who will crave for artificially made foods.

On top of that, the blogger debunked various myths on weight loss that may actually harm our body. This is beneficial especially for those who are serious on losing weight.

  1. Trying To Achieve Your Dreams? You Need To Answer This Question.. – Kid Mentalist: This article recognizes the need for everyone to assess our readiness to realize our dreams. It is given that we have different kinds of dreams. However, the problem mostly lies on how we are ready to take the challenges associated with fulfilling this. A good read, especially for those dreamers.
  2. What If I Told You.. – Kid Mentalist: The author is inspired by this article. I highly recommend this to let us realize that we have to do something meaningful in our lives. It is given that we have to study, to graduate, to work, to have a happy family. We understand that, as these are all our aims. However, we have to also pursue things we love, like being a blogger or a YouTuber.

This is the same principle I follow, where I strike a balance. I need to work 40 hours a week, but I see to it that my passion, that is blogging here, is also fulfilled. It can be also an opportunity to turn this into a satisfying job, where we can earn while doing what we love.

  1. If I Could Have One Super Power.. – Kid Mentalist: This shows the funny side of explaining why that particular superpower should be held by the blogger. He also explained fully what happened inside the stage/auditorium where a performer showed that trick.
  2. Lightning Concrète – Elan Mudrow: The crack in the wall compliments the reflections being shown below. This shows the creative side behind the cracks we see on our walls.
  3. Barrio Bistro Buhangin Pizzas Taste Test – EAT FINDER: This article wants me to order more of their pizza. And this describes the other view of how can pizzas can feed hungry souls.
  4. Oatmeal Arroz Caldo – EAT FINDER: I find this one of my favorite recipe articles, as this tells the creativity we Filipinos have. It also shows the other side of chicken soup that we posted earlier, where it defines the different set of ingredients and how we cook it. Definitely one of the best recipes.
  5. Why Should We Read Your Blog – The Art of Blogging: This makes us realize that we have to offer something different if we want our articles to be viewed more. It also tells us that competition exists between bloggers, especially on WordPress alone, where millions of articles are published. It gives the other side of blogging that would be particularly useful to all of us, the author included.
  6. Waiting for the Summer – WRITE THEM ALL: Through this post, this might inspire others to shout out their feelings especially that the cold spell has ended. This is the other side of saying that the winter has ended, it’s spring now, and summer is waiting.
  7. Even the most beautiful days eventually have their sunsets. – WRITE THEM ALL: I chose this, as the photo with the corresponding caption speaks of the most painful realities one will imagine. Well, we will have to prepare for that.
  8. POPE FRANCIS IN UAE – WRITE THEM ALL: Part of providing the other side of the news is on featuring religious tolerance. With Pope Francis in an Arab country, one might see a breath of fresh air as other side of news tells of love, peace, and harmony.
  1. MY 40’s – WRITE THEM ALL: These good and bad moments helped us to shape our life we know today, and this is what the blogger featured in her article via poetry. Hope this inspires us to learn from our mistakes and start over as we age.
  2. Simbang Gabi in Dubai – WRITE THEM ALL: The article teaches the lesson of religious tolerance as shown by an Arab country.
  3. DMZ Tour (Imjingak, Dorasan Observatory, 3rd Tunnel, Dorasan Station) – THEVYPEFFECT: I got interest on this article, as we all know that Korea was divided into two. This was written at the time tensions between North and South are mounting, and this shows what is happening at the border, and somehow this let us show the look and feel of deafening silence in the area.
  4. 5 Tips For Your First Trip To Korea – THEVYPEFFECT: Particularly the most difficult is Tip No. 1, where we have to go with learning some Korean phrases. While some phrases are understandable even to a K-Pop fan like me, we have no choice but to dig deeper.

Most painful of all is the racism present in their society. Let’s admit it that pride and/or nationalism is partly to blame for this. Also partly to blame is on standards set by their entertainment industry. No need to explain it further. Best solution is to just ignore them.

  1. Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice Soup Recipe – Ep. 1333 – YummyHood: I chose this article as it also presents another different way of preparing the chicken soup. Wanna try this one.
  2. French Silk Pie Recipe – Ep. 1332 – YummyHood: This presents another way on how to prepare sweet pies. This would be the most challenging recipe, as you would have to find alternative ingredients lest if there’s none. Another sweet treat highly recommended for you.
  3. Get Dirty! _ Storyshucker: This is just a simple write-up, yet reminds us of our simple childhood days, where we get dirty and we enjoy it.
  4. Kouign-Amann – World’s Most Difficult and Best Pastry – Food Wishes – YummyHood: I chose this stuff as it presents the ingredients most difficult to find, but equally rewarding as well if you cook it. By the looks of it, one can munch on the crispiness outside and on the softness inside.
  5. My Best Places to Eat in Myeongdong – THEVYPEFFECT: Our fellow blogger made a similar observation that most are familiar of Myeongdong as a foodie place. From there she picked her recommended places to eat in the place. Most popular, albeit expensive, is on street foods. Makes me wanna taste more of it when I arrive there.
  6. Namdaemun Market – THEVYPEFFECT: This presents the different side of markets we know today, as we can see how people interact in this daily market. Different aspects may be seen here: (1) It is overnight, (2) for the liquors, sellers will be frustrated if you don’t buy their items at all, and (3) jewelries and accessories are mostly sold in bulk.
  7. Near Miss – Storyshucker: This article by our fellow blogger defines the contrasts of rushing for meetings, and slowing down to appreciate the beauty of nature. While in a fast-paced world where society demands us to rush, there are times that we have to slow down and ponder on what we are doing. It is also a very descriptive story.
  8. Why I like K-pop – Kpop-Khop: The blogger explained very well why many of us are hooked into K-Pop, and dissected elements which make up the stuff we know today. These are the music videos, choreography, variety, and music shows. Hope the author can make another article about this.
  9. Triggers – Storyshucker: One year passed since this article is written, and one cannot help but ask on what progress is being done to stop these kind of shootings. Are we going to lose more innocent lives before we act? In the end, it’s the system, particularly on gun ownership, which is the major problem.
  10. In today’s stressful climate, everyone needs to reduce stress in the areas that they can control. _ Viral Images: In today’s world where stress and everything artificial are the norms of today, there is a need to reduce stress and at the same time go back to basics. Dealing with stress in areas that we can control can be a great help for us in having less stress in our lives.
  11. A Glimpse Behind the Scenes of a Successful Blog – The Art of Blogging: Everyone thinks that blogging would be as simple as writing an essay, and that’s it. But that’s not how it is supposed to work. In reality, also as what I am experiencing now, there exists difficulties in finding time for blogging, in deciding if we will be full-time on this, and struggling for readers. It’s up to us if we will feel the pressure, or we will keep going on.
  12. Relationship Myths Debunked by a professional to calm your woes – Relationship Tips and News: Some myths on relationships work on assumptions, which may or may not be true. Unfortunately, these can be established as “facts” if not corrected or debunked. Hopefully, with this article, one partner can proceed with his/her relationship without fears.
  13. Recipe of the Week – Asparagus Pasta for One – Single Serve: From the looks of it, one might tell that this is another type of carbonara. However, if one will see it closely, this has a mixture of a vegetable called asparagus. Looks like I want to cook it also.
  14. Recipe of the Week – Pan Fried Cheese and Spinach Pie – Single Serve: I chose this article, as this is the vegetarian recipe that is not only appealing, but is also simple and easy to cook.
  15. Recipe of the Week – Hawaiian Pizza – Single Serve: This is also a classic recipe, but our fellow blogger made another twist to this, this time making it homemade style.
  16. Common Eating – The Eucharist – Dining with Donald: This summarizes the details on the other side of Eucharist being celebrated by Christians all over. With our fondness of eating, hope this will touch the hearts of gastrophiles.
  17. The Fifty Useful Websites – Mataro,Rechello Blogging: This article is very helpful, especially for those who will dive the Internet for the first time.
  18. Tell me about Rubik’s Cube – Mataro,Rechello Blogging: This tells a different side on how to solve a problem like the Rubiks cube. Medyo nakakatuwa nga lang na ito rin ang napapansin ko sa mga kasabayan ko, na noong time na iyon ay ginagawan pa ng plano kung paano ibabalik ang cube na ito sa dati.
  19. “A Remarkable One” (11) – Mataro,Rechello Blogging: Isa itong paalala sa atin na kailangan nating pahalagahan ang mga mahal sa buhay, pati na rin ang kanilang mga sakripisyo. Magsisilbi itong gabay sa kung ano man ang gusto nating marating sa hinaharap.
  20. “Keep meditating on nature.” (8) – Mataro,Rechello Blogging: This is all we want to need if we desire for inner peace. Highly recommended hobby, especially for those who lead busy lives like you and me.
  21. Blank Space. – Fully Dilated Ideas: Nagustuhan ko ito. Bakit? Wala lang. Naiiba ito sa pagbibigay kahulugan ng katagang “Wala lang.” Naantig ako sa isinulat niya, na ikinuwento niya na dumating sa point na wala siyang maisulat. At wala siyang ganang magsulat. So, hihintayin ko ang mga entries mo.
  22. New Year, New Nothing. – Fully Dilated Ideas: Kahit paano, naipakita ng magandang blogger kung ano ang dapat gawin sa lowest point ng kanyang buhay: Huwag mawalan ng tiwala sa Diyos, at gumawa ng hakbang para malampasan ang problema.

Napansin ko din ang sinabi niya na “Alam mo yung dadating ka sa punto na ang dami mong ideya pero yung katawang lupa mo, gusto ka munang magpahinga.” Darating din tayo diyan. Ako, marami pang kailangang tapusin at aliwin, bukod pa sa trabaho ko. Pero kailangan ko ring magpahinga.

  1. Thank You, Next. – Fully Dilated Ideas: Medyo nasaktan ako sa article na ito. Mahirap din pala kasi na ang pag-ibig na ibinigay mo ay hindi ibinalik sa iyo. Pero ang importante, natuto tayo na maging handa sa anumang mangyari sa atin, lalo na sa pag-ibig.

Another piece of love advice sa magandang blogger: Huwag kang ma-discourage kung sakaling hindi niya ibalik sa iyo ang feelings. At kung itinapon niya ang effort na ibinigay mo sa kanya. Ang importante, nagawa mo ang dapat mong gawin.

  1. Tamang Panahon. – Fully Dilated Ideas: Kung ang magandang blogger ay nakamit ang isang bagay sa tamang panahon, ipinakita nito ang aral ng Diyos na “may oras sa bawat bagay.” At nakakarelate ako sa halos lahat ng frustrations niya, at ang sobrang tuwa na makamit ang pangarap na gusto natin.

Regarding sa heartbreak niya, try kong gumawa ng isang love advice para diyan.

(Side Note: Natutuwa lang ako sa picture na iyan. Kung diyan siya nagtrabaho dati, ako naman ay nag-rereview malapit sa lugar na iyan. Alam ko na ito ay sa Doroteo Jose Station (facing Roosevelt), kung saan dito ako laging bumabyahe linggu-linggo para sa CPA Board Exam ko. Sana dumating ang time na magkita tayo diyan para mag-share ng ating kuwento. Sa tamang panahon. 😀 )

  1. – Fully Dilated Ideas: Bilang isang blogger, dapat tayong magpasalamat sa lahat ng sumusuporta at umaantabay sa atin, kahit paano. From the author to yours, you’re very much welcome.
  2. Bangon Davao – Pilipino Ako. At Isang OFW: Sa isang insidente mahigit dalawang taon ang nakalipas, nabago nito ang pananaw lalo na sa pagiging safe ng Lungsod ng Davao. Sa pagsasabi pa lang na “Ang yabang ng mga Dabawenyo,” o “Akala ko ba, safe sa Davao,” ganyan ba ang asal na dapat gawin ng mga Pilipino pag nakita ang kababayan nila na nagdurusa? Kasi kung oo, bagsak pa lang ang grado natin pagdating sa moralidad. Nagiging hipokrito at perfectionist tayo.

Naiiba ang balitang ito dahil sumasalamin ito sa reyalidad, at palagay ko ay hindi na mababago ang masamang asal na ito ng ilang Pilipino.

  1. Don’t Take These Things For Granted ⋆ simple Ula: This excellently tells the experience which makes us think and ponder on daily things we took for granted. This should push us to look up and appreciate all people and things we meet everyday, that make up what we are today. Aside from that, this shall push us to take care of ourselves everywhere we go, and whatever we do.
  2. Talking about World Wide Pop – Kpop-Khop: This tells the other side of the music industry, not just about K-Pop. Being the case, we might as well look on other genre or on other kind of music. This is a bit different, as her name sounds unusual, but quite interesting.
  3. Prayer for inspiration (Be inspired today 112 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus) – SUCCESS INSPIRERS’ WORLD: This prayer will serve as inspiration for all of us bloggers to be inspired and be guided in everything we write and do, and in every journey we take.

  6. When someone tells you they’re too busy, it’s not that they mismanage their time – Viral Images: This article tells us to be more conscious of our time, especially that we are given limited number of years to live.
  7. How Train Travel Can Be Stylish ⋆ simple Ula: Our blogger shows the different side of riding a trains. It is granted that everyday, a train ride can be boring, or can be stressful. But she shared helpful tips that will make our experience with it pleasant, prestigious, and memorable.
  8. 5 Tips For a Better Sleep ⋆ simple Ula: The blogger showed other tips on how to sleep well. With many demands being given on us till near-midnight, and with our difficulty sleeping as we age, there comes the time we have to cope up with sleep. As a matter of fact, as I was writing this article, I wanted to sleep now. Maybe I’ll try some of these tips.
  9. Relationship Flare Points_ Home Improvements ⋆ simple Ula: It can be granted that even petty disagreements can ruin relationships, like home improvements. So far, I haven’t encountered any incident wherein couples do fight over this. However, I do hope that couples might find this helpful.
  10. The Wonder Of Self-Care. – Kid Mentalist: The fellow blogger describes clearly what is his routine, and then comes to a point that “life is too short to be spent in an unhealthy manner.” The subject touching on self-care is crucial as we seek to stabilize our mental health.
  11. Ginisang Ampalaya (Sautéed Bitter Gourd) – EAT FINDER: This is the most simplified article on how to cook it. Remember TweetNewscaster’s version of it? That makes a different recipe, as one ingredient is lacking here. Well, she nevertheless added it to bring the other side of the dish.
  12. Day 2308 – Anger and The Skill of Doing Nothing – The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally: With all the anger being heaped and dealt with, some expressed that to deal with anger, we have to do nothing. What would be more difficult? Being angry, or doing nothing? This article will delve more on the different side of coping with anger.
  13. Vision without action is merely a dream. – Viral Images: While ideals are great, it only takes an action to make it possible. The article collects some very good quotes defining the link between the vision and the action.
  14. “Minsu is Confused” – Kpop-Khop: This is quite unusual, as the title is catchy. It is just so sad that it is underrated. Meanwhile, the article presented it as a news item and as a mini-review, worthy also to be given attention.
  15. “OMG what a surprise, BTS is having a comeback in April…” – Kpop-Khop: With all stars having comeback at the same time for this year, that would be a bloody year for us who are multi-fandomers, as what our fellow blogger speaks. This shows the other side of BTS, and gives a hint of what will happen in their comeback next month.
  16. An ARMY Academy – Kpop-Khop: At first glance, it is an academic school exclusively devoted to everything about BTS. However, it is really a study group for ARMY’s, considering that some fans struggle between studies and being an ARMY. Somehow the stars managed to be very good influencers to their fans, and that gives a good feeling. This is indeed the other side of the news every K-Pop fan should know.
  17. When Life Gets Blurry, Adjust Your Focus – WRITE THEM ALL: I just chose this article, as it plays upon the properties of the camera to teach us this valuable lesson in life.

MOMOLAND (모모랜드) – I’m So Hot: MV Review

Hello, dear readers! This time we are now reviewing again MOMOLAND, with their new lead song I’m So Hot.

I am so excited, as this will be my first (or second) time to do a review of my most favorite group. Fortunately, I have some time to review a freshly-baked music of them. Before reading the reviews and rants here, you may watch first their video:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

They made their storyline very simple and understandable.

The girls went in the bus. At the start of the song, the video features what they dream when they are in the entertainment industry, instead of their normal life in the bus. At the end of the video, the girls realize that it was just a dream.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

They made a good deal on applying consistently the theme, particularly on featuring the entertainment side and the backstage.

Appearance

  1. The music video as a whole must be colorful – 5 points

This is very colorful. Predominant shades of pink and blue are featured, but nevertheless, this is enough to excite the viewers.

  1. Must be done in good taste – 5 points

I see the video as in good taste. Nothing awkward or gross is featured here.

  1. Does not celebrate Halloween, Easter, or similar celebrations – 5 points

No celebrations mentioned were featured. Only their being in the stage is being celebrated.

  1. Does not feature astrology – 5 points

No trace of astrology is featured in the video.

  1. Less horror is featured in the video – 5 points

I did not see any trace of horror in this video.

  1. Not too revealing outfits – 5 points

In fairness to the group, they improved well. Their outfits in the whole video are not too revealing now.

Music

  1. Ability of the music to excite the listener – 3 points (updated)

I must say that somehow this excites me as a listener, but personally that was not enough. It may be because of other factors, which I am discussing now.

  1. Music should not be deafening on the ears – 5 points

This song is not too deafening, considering the simplicity present in their melody.

Dance

  1. Dance can be learned easily even by beginners – 4 points

I must say that the moves they show are very simple. However, this lacks excitement we see in Bboom Bboom and Baam.

  1. Dance must not be too sensual – 5 points

No sensual moves were seen throughout the whole video.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

The primary moral lesson that can be learned is on teamwork. See at 0:32 – 0:33, wherein Ahin is being helped by Jane and Nayun.

Similarly, this is also featured at 0:45, where JooE helps Hyebin in exercise.

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

The group decided to feature what is happening in the stage, and in the backstage. I suppose they want the viewers to learn more about them behind the scenes.

Other Matters

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

Some scenes are funny enough in the video.

I find it funny how Jane reacted in the bus at 0:04 – 0:05. Also, another funny moment is on Ahin pushing Nayun while they are rehearsing with Jane at 1:40 – 1:44.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 5 points

Without a doubt, I must say that this will be picked by mainstream media. Surely, this will also be played by TV and radio stations. Especially that Nancy did an aegyo at 0:10 – 0:16, and JooE still gone crazy at 0:24 – 0:25.

(Latest update: It’s confirmed that this reached mainstream media. In fact, “I’m So Hot” is placed at No. 1 in MYX International, No. 7 in its charts, and No. 10 in its daily charts, according to a netizen. Congratulations!)

Let’s see in the coming months if this will also be used as a funeral song. If that’s the case, then I’ll add another point and change the rating below.

  1. Review by other sites – 3 points

TheBiasList thought of MOMOLAND as playing safe instead of doing something new. (But for me, it’s obvious that they chose the latter.)

It reviewed the song as poorly structured, and tells that while the song tries to brand itself as a novelty song, it lacked many aspects required to make it solid enough.

KPopReviewed noted that the song takes on a retro approach, and noted how can the classic tune of saxophones can be combined with the modern pop song we know today. The weak points were on the instrumentals, but their vocals were impressive. As a whole, it reviewed the song as lacking in total package, particularly on their outfits and performance.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 3 points (updated)

The main factor for the incomplete score was on their being incomplete. Can’t see that they are complete, which makes us miss the other two. We’ll deal with that later.

Somehow, they made some improvements. They toned down their sexy moves, which was present in the past two vids, making it pleasing enough. I also took notice of Nancy’s aegyo, which will make this a sure hit, as what JooE did to Bboom Bboom.

Lastly, they made a good deal giving Jane and Nayun more mileage, which normally seems left behind with the rest. We will see what Nayun will got in the coming months.

  1. Other factors
  • Uploads the video to 1theK – 5 points 
  • Features the 1theK logo – 5 points

MOMOLAND is part of 1theK group.

The logo is featured on various places throughout the video, like its two hit songs. But the most conspicious part can be seen at 1:56, where JooE, Hyebin, and Yeonwoo walk at the hallway.

Some netizens took notice of it: Why place the logo as if it’s an ad? Remember that the goal of 1theK is to be an ultimate hub of K-Pop. This will trigger viewers to view also other groups under their label. We’ll deal with that further in another article.

  • Looks – 4 points

They changed their usual looks. It’s fine, but sadly, I cannot easily recognize some of them.

I am not used to JooE’s hair, which she changed from blonde to black. As a result, in the video, I did not recognize her easily at 0:23 – 0:25.

On the looks of other members, it seems that Yeonwoo and Ahin swapped positions. Ahin now has long hair, which makes her stand out too. She makes her beauty stand out this time.

Yeonwoo now has short hair, which projects her fierceness. But personally, I felt sad on her looks. She is not the cute/sexy type which I know for long. I am now confused if Jihyo is now included in MOMOLAND.

On the other hand, I also love how Jane smiles at 0:40. Aside from being my primary bias, she projects it well. It seems that I fell in love again with her killer smile.

  • New concept featured – 5 points

If you witness how MOMOLAND developed their concepts over the years, they started from cutesy concepts in Jjan Koong Kwang, Freeze, and Wonderful Love, then broke away from merry-go-round concepts, and matured a little bit in Bboom Bboom and Baam. This MV is the most mature concept from them so far.

  • Shares concept with TWICE and other girl groups – 5 points

This refers to them having a party on a bus. The bus concept where TWICE members party in their song Like Ooh-Aah at 3:50 – 4:17 is present also in MOMOLAND at the last five seconds of their video.

For other girl groups, that would be on portraying themselves as sexy and more mature. You would not expect that MOMOLAND will have it, while normally that is reserved for other known groups. I feel like that they drew inspiration also from TWICE.

  • Completeness of members – 0 points

Sorry for this. Let me share what made me push to give zero points through a rant.

The MV feels incomplete if the other members are not present. As what I wrote in the previous article, “The more, the Merries!”

It should be remembered that Daisy and Taeha were later included in the group. Upon hearing of their comeback this year, we thought that the two are still included here. However, the agency announced that they will not be included due to health and personal reasons.

The announcement came as a surprise. Why? Because so far, I haven’t encountered any instance where any active member is absent in the MV, even one. Popular groups like BTS, GOT7, BLACKPINK, and TWICE don’t have this kind of problem. Exception is for the subgroups like that of EXO and AOA. But in this case, they are not a subgroup.

In fact, as one commenter said:

Wait a sec.. This is the first time ive seen this type of case, like.. a GG incomplete because of an issue, lol, this is weird..

It was very sad, as supposedly they can be included. Daisy can still be part of it, by shrugging off recent dating issues. Even Taeha, too, as the dance moves we see are not too energetic.

Maybe I’ll give a perfect score of them in their next comeback. Assigned also ten points for this, as they need to look on it seriously.

(As for Yeonwoo, who is always absent everytime MOMOLAND appears in PH mainstream media, I have second thoughts on removing her from my bias list or not. I am not pleased with her having so many excuses not appearing on TV. We’ll deal with that in another separate article.)

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 86.15% (Updated)

Final Words

Personally this is not the kind of video I am looking for, as it is incomplete. I am somehow disappointed, and am waiting for their next comeback. But it still deserves merit.

These little bit of not-so-good comments may be ignored, but it is still very important. They have to consider improvements on these, otherwise, they might end up with a failing grade.

Public Service Announcement (March 26, 2019)

For your information and guidance.

MAMAMOO (마마무) – Gogobebe (고고베베): MV Review

Undeniably, MAMAMOO has become one of my favorite groups in K-Pop. Though they do not have the usual cute looks, they have an edge when it comes to their maturity, especially on content and voice.

And since MAMAMOO released now their first music video for this year, called Gogobebe, we will now do it. You may watch this first before going to the review proper:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

 The group made the storyline very clear. The MV was essentially a flashback on what happened before they slept on the other house. At first, one of them gets bored inside the bathroom, the office, playground, and room, they were invited to house party.

As they knew of the invitation, they imagine what will they expect when they come to party. To their surprise, they came across a study group. It turned out that someone misled them by reversing the number from 66 to 99.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

They applied consistently their theme on having a party.

Appearance

  1. The music video as a whole must be colorful – 5 points

I must say that the music video is very colorful. This deserves a perfect score

  1. Must be done in good taste – 4 points

All of the video was done in good taste, except for head part. This was on office underneath, where Moonbyul tries to flex herself inside the office, only to stick her head outside.

  1. Does not celebrate Halloween, Easter, or similar celebrations. – 5 points

No celebrations of any sort were seen in this video. Just like Hwasa’s TWIT, they only celebrated their desire to have fun and be happy.

  1. Does not feature astrology – 5 points

I did not see any sign of astrology in this MV

  1. Less horror is featured in the video – 5 points

No trace of horror is featured here.

  1. Not too revealing outfits – 4 points

On the outfits, the most conspicious is that of Hwasa. Just scan the whole video.

Music

  1. Ability of the music to excite the listener. – 5 points

This makes me want to hear it till the end. Though not too energetic, this nevertheless made me exciting.

  1. Music should not be deafening on the ears – 4 points

 I should tell that it might irritate the ears if played too loud. By its nature having a strong vocals which defines the group, this is not surprising.

Dance

  1. Dance can be learned easily even by beginners – 5 points

The easiest part of their dance is on their chorus at 0:55 – 0:58. Other parts, even also in the chorus, can be easily understood by beginners.

  1. Dance must not be too sensual – 5 points

While others might think that some of their dance steps are sensual, I think of it otherwise. They don’t do some steps in the same outfit, like other MVs banned by KBS.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

They impliedly shared the lessons, that we can learn from them.

First is on having fun outside. It is given that at present, we are inclined to rest and just deal with the gadgets. However, if we do have spare time, we have to go outside and be active. Wheein must have realized it at 0:19 – 0:24.

Second is on value of work. If Moonbyul did not value it, she would not do the tasks presented at 0:40 – 0:42.

Third is on how to handle awkward situations at 3:01 – 3:19. The girls, when came across a study group, must have found it awkward to proceed. But Hwasa solved it by convincing the group to join a party.

Lastly is on being playful. Aside from the playground, the group had shown it by having time for parties. Let’s just remember that “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

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

I gave this score, as they are featuring physical fitness by playing with children.

Another thing viewers might find it useful is on the old TV. We know that many now are unaware on how to use it, but this was used a long time ago, before cathode and flatscreen televisions were widely used.

Other Matters

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

MAMAMOO clearly hit it right when it comes to humor.

Look at 0:23 – 0:24, where Wheein was on the park. It was funny how she reacted as children play with her. Meanwhile, another funny thing was that Hwasa has no mood while brushing her teeth at 0:46 – 0:47. Hwasa, at 0:59 – 1:02, made me laugh as she dropped her phone upon hearing the party. Just look at her expressions.

Lastly is on Solar having a wide smile at 1:14. This is not the smile that will entice one to love her, but a kind of smile that makes us laugh at her.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 4 points

I suppose that this will be also presented by mainstream media. However, the question is on their being famous, and the different kind of tune used here.

  1. Review by other sites – 3 points

SeoulBeats reviewed the MV as lacking “justice” to the rest of their previous projects and that the storyline was immature, and told that it does not stand out as compared with their previous music videos. However, it finds the video as fun to watch, and reviewed very positively the music. Though “unspiring,” so to speak, they made themselves stand out with their appearance.

TheBiasList reviewed the song as fine but lacking in depth. When taken individually, it looks simple and boring, but taken as whole “it makes more sense.” Gogobebe shows more the fun rather than ending up their series with a definite hit.

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

The group made another outstanding performance in this video, especially on how they approach this mature theme. In some other way, they are trying to define to us on how to be happy – and that is by having a party with others.

  1. Other factors
  • Lyrics of “Umbrella” – 5 points

This refers to their lyric “일루와 일루와 일루와” which sounds similar to Rihanna’s Umbrella. I also had to rate it as I saw that they are supposedly inspired by the RnB singer.

  • Different styling of “gogobebe” – 5 points

See 4:36 – 4:37. In this case, they are presenting new concept, where the g’s in gogobebe can be stylized upside down as b’s.

  • Uploads the video to 1theK – 5 points (updated)
  • Features the 1theK logo – 0 points

MAMAMOO is part of the 1theK group.

The only instance where they used the logo is on Wind Flower. That alone is an improvement, but did not feature it again here. Not even in the beginning or end of video. So, no choice.

  • Uses concepts from other groups – 5 points

The group used the concept of shopping bags from BLACKPINK’s Ddu Du Ddu Du (1:34 – 1:43) in their video at 2:37 – 2:40.

  • References to their previous song – 5 points

MAMAMOO made a good deal on featuring Wind Flower, at 0:33, where Solar reminds herself lifting a bunch on their previous song (0:56).

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 91.20% (Updated)

Final Words

MAMAMOO started their day with their fun side, and that’s really fine.

Personally, I see that their music and MV is okay, but not as better as their previous music like Egotistic and Wind Flower. However, they merit better scores in this video. Hope this rating helps them in improving further their next projects.

TXT (투모로우바이투게더) – CROWN: MV Review

This year, we are witnessing the rise of new groups like ITZY and Cherry Bullet. Now, Big Hit Entertainment followed suit by debuting TXT, which stands for the phrase “Tomorrow x Together”. The members are YeonjunSoobinBeomgyuTaehyun, and Huening Kai.

I am also excited on this, as this is my first time to review a music of a boy group, and second time for newbies.

Pardon also if I haven’t done any with BTS. This time, we will do it on the newbie group. You may watch first their music video before reading my evaluation on them:


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

The group somehow has a storyline in the video. At first, a boy with horns in his head had been bad, but something’s changed. One had wings, and through this they aim to reach for a star, while realizing that they are just a tiny speck in the world, and they are living in a cramped space.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

Their theme featuring cramped spaces was consistent throughout the video. They also featured their rooms and their alleys, implying that they are being compressed in the MV. And not to mention their special effects though. These have been used throughout the video.

Appearance

  1. The music video as a whole must be colorful – 5 points

I like how the colors are used playfully in the MV, particularly on 0:39 – 0:41. Same goes with their special effects throughout the whole of the music.

  1. Must be done in good taste – 5 points

I see the video as done in good taste. In fact, I really wanted to view it from beginning to the end.

  1. Does not celebrate Halloween, Easter, or similar celebrations – 5 points

This merits perfect score, as no celebrations of any sort are featured here.

  1. Does not feature astrology – 5 points

No trace of these is seen in the video.

  1. Less horror is featured in the video – 5 points

I did not see something scary in any part of the video.

  1. Not too revealing outfits – 5 points

Their outfits are not too revealing, yet they show how stylish they were.

Music

  1. Ability of the music to excite the listener – 5 points

At the first seconds of the music, they featured a ringtone which describes clearly their name. Aside from that, they posed a different tune which sets them apart from other boy groups we dealt with. This makes one excited and crave for more in this music.

  1. Music should not be deafening on the ears. – 4 points 

The chorus part is just deafening when played too loud.

Dance

  1. Dance can be learned easily even by beginners – 4 points

The dance can be easily learned, except at 1:25. I don’t know how to apply this when I dance the song.

  1. Dance must not be too sensual – 5 points

Nothing sensual was seen in the video.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

So far, the moral lesson they impliedly portray is more on reaching the dream, and that is obtaining the crown which represents triumph.

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

A little bit detail of the video will tell viewers to do something, as we’ll see the timestamp later. With some fans who are busy with K-Pop, they unconsciously tell us that we have to wash and hang our clothes.

Other Matters

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

This refers to the boys doing “Hide and Seek” on clothes, and on how the boy reacted at 2:38 – 2:40. Same goes with 3:43 – 3:44, where they play another game called tug of war. The boy standing in between and holding the clothesline kept himself cool.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media  – 5 points

I suppose that this may be picked up by mainstream media in the near future, as young ones clamor for new songs, and new voices from new boy groups. In short, they want something new, and I might not be surprised if mainstream media will play it.

  1. Review by other sites – 5 points

Comments by netizens follow:

I just can’t stop watching the music video! BigHit did a great job forming this group, just like BTS!

Whether you liked it or not, you can’t deny the fact that this was a great start, especially for a debut song

So strange to hear bighit intro thingy and not see BTS omfg

Obsessed and Assessed reviewed the song “Crown” in a different way. Like in the past, the blogger has been hesitant over new groups and their debut songs.

The blogger viewed it as lively, and this serves as main distinction that separates them from a senior group (BTS). According to him/her, this will be their great advantage as they might reach wider audience.

On the music, it noticed that the music was clean, crisp, and fresh. (Looks like I’m hungry btw.) But this fails to make the newbies stand out in relation with other boy groups, and instead may be an extension of “track for ASTRO or NCT Dream…”

Regarding the video, the group has its fun side especially on choreography and mix of colors.

The blogger has its side note that “BigHit sure does love their three-letter abbreviations.” (Well, if I may add, Big Hit can make another boy group in the future. We will name it CLL, or COL, which means we have to call. If now we have TXT, then we have CLL/COL to communicate. 😀 )

Though it was in itself exciting enough, the blogger sees it as not meeting expectation, considering the hype over the group. However, it sees “serious potential” in the group, especially in the future.

AllKPop reviewed the song as bold, light, and more “masculine.” It told that the group fits in as a cute boyband group, and noted that initially, they did not show their diversity when it comes to singing.

The negative side revolves on cramped spaces when they dance, and on dance where the choreography was not so challenging.

TheBiasList viewed the MV and the song as “brightening”, and is pleased to learn of new offer by Big Hit. To say the least, it was youthful, energetic, and fresh. It expects more success from the group as it caters more to other target market. The lead song “Crown”, is also explicit, and can be easily understood. The blogger ends with a note that the debut music of TXT was their strong debut indeed.

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

So far, this offers a fresh perspective of how we view boy groups. While other groups normally sing and dance, and do something, TXT had its advantage of featuring special effects to render it more exciting.

I also noted how Big Hit Entertainment played its logo at the start of the video. Normally, everytime Big Hit’s logo is played, we think of BTS. However, by including it, somehow this will change our perception in their future projects.

  1. Other factors
  • Special effects are used – 5 points

They made a good choice on featuring special effects as their advantage. At the start of the video, it can be seen, defining the energy the boys have. It also adds depth to the message they want to convey to us, as also seen on a member having so may tails, and another with wings.

  • Illusions are featured – 5 points

This refers to 2:05 – 2:08 of the video, where Hueningkai leans on the brick wall without falling. Also noted is on 2:15 – 2:20 where Yeonjun at first looks like sitting on a room, but later on, actually stands on a wall.

  • Gives fresh perspective – 5 points

So far, Big Hit Entertainment made a great deal to set TXT and BTS apart. What BTS did was to feature their style in their debut song “No More Dream,” and that is their strong persona. This was different in TXT, where they show themselves as calm and cool persons. Remember that first impression lasts.

  • Date is set – 0 points.

Let me tell you why I gave zero points to this.

Almost all videos released have a date set on the video. This will let fans tell if this is released for this year or last year. This is the only thing they missed, but also important.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 90.43%

Final Words

Remember that Big Hit in the past created 6ACES, where rumors tell that it will replace BTS. But considering what happened now, it was not fulfilled. They then created TXT, and it does not replace the longstanding group. As to 6ACES, we may have wondered on what happened to them now, as no news of them was heard as of this writing.

Anyway, given that the newbie group set their music right, we might wonder on what will they show to us further.

This music is a good start for them, and it caters well for those who want to find diversity in this genre. Some points that should be considered are minimal, and hope this will inspire them in their journey.

SHINee (샤이니) – Good Evening (데리러가)(Full English Misheard Lyrics)

We are on another encounter with SHINee, with their song Good Evening.

Considering the misheard lyrics below, the alternate title for this song is “Chocolate, Joke On Yoongi“. So does this mean that chocolates have a role in playing jokes on Suga? Well, let’s see.

Lyrics posted in the video are underlined here.

You may play this video while reading the following contents. Enjoy the misheard lyrics of “Good Evening” (데리러가) (SHINee/샤이니) from TweetNewscaster!

What Is The Fandom Name For ITZY?

Let’s just take a break for a while, as we answer this million-dollar question:

What is the fandom name for ITZY?

Honestly, even if I am not a fan of the group, I find this soooo exciting. Why?

While someone recommended that their haters be called as “Bitchy” or “Itchy”, many have wondered on what would be their fandom name up to this writing. And while they have some names in mind, netizens did not stop in sharing their recommendations.

The members of ITZY themselves, particularly Yeji and Ryujin, had their three proposed names:

  1. UPZY (ITZY will go higher)
  2. In Us (All in us)
  3. ITzU (Yeji must have thought of her pet dog shihtzu as she cuddles another dog in their MV of Dalla Dalla.)

How about the netizens? They have many options, aside from those mentioned:

  1. BITZY
  2. EDZY (ITZY has an edge, or advantage.)
  3. Ganzy (Stylish/Cool)

Well, if you will ask me on their fandom name, they may pick on the following names:

  1. ITSY
  2. BEETSY
  3. TEENIE
  4. WEENIE
  5. YELLOW
  6. POLKA-DOT

Or these are the alternative choices:

  1. ITSY
  2. BITSY
  3. SPIDER
  4. WENT UP
  5. THE WATER SPOUT

Just joking. 😀 However, if one will be serious about this, UPZY or EDZY will do. Their fans can also be called as EASY, implying that they are at ease with each other, and they are enjoying what the group will offer to all of us.

Or they can be called as BUSY, telling that the group is busy in providing all what we K-Pop fans need. At the same time, fans are expected to be busy in promoting the group, considering that this is a newbie one.

(Latest Update: Midzy has been their fandom name now.)

MOMOLAND (모모랜드/モモランド) – Bboom Bboom Japanese Version (Full English Misheard Lyrics)

And for the nth time, we are on MOMOLAND, with their hit song Bboom Bboom.

It was announced recently that the group will have another comeback next week. This will be a great news! But for the meantime, we will hear again their tune in full English before we bid goodbye to their songs last year.

(Side Note: Pardon also for the very long title.)

Considering the misheard lyrics below, the alternate title for this song is “Love Momo“. Yes, we have to love Momo of TWICE. She gave her name to the group. Ha ha. 😀
