Just got a text message from one of the admins at CNBLUESTORM.
She confirmed CNBLUE's concert in Manila happening on June 15, 2013~!!!!!
/THIS IS JUST ME DYING//
ARGH~~ BLAGGG~~~ TOGSHHHH~~~
MY HEAD IS GONNA' EXPLODE~~
2NE1 will be appearing individually on 4 different magazines for March. I am especially excited to see Dara's photos because this finally I can see her in a more feminine look that I've been craving for a while. Now, goddess Dee will definitely emerge. Kwon is going to be very pleased. :)
As much fame as CNBLUE is getting now while promoting for their comeback album Re:BLUE, sadly, they're getting the same amount of hate as well.
" Idol rock band CNBLUE is once again caught in a copyright violation controversy, this time with a Korean indie band, Crying Nut. Crying Nut’s management firm Drug Record sued the idol band and their agency FNC Entertainment for damages citing an infringement of their copyright. The issue has been taken to the Seoul Central District Court on February 12. "
I won't be putting up the whole story. Just read it here.
Being a BOICE myself, I'm pretty sure lots of people would be waving off my opinion as something too biased or what, but get this: not all fangirls are blind and delusional. Some of us still look at things objectively and hence we make better, way more rational judgement than others.
/oopss. sorry for the gif. just had to put that there. lmfao.//
Okay so now that I've pointed that out, let me get to the main course.
I get it why Crying Nut is crying foul (see what I did there? ㅋㅋㅋ) because I mean whether you're a musician, a painter, or writer, it just wouldn't feel right to see other people copy your works. They got offended when CNBLUE used their music without their permission and MNET even had it included in a DVD published in Japan.
So of course, they had to take some actions right?
And so their case was taken into spotlight and was noticed by lots and lotssssss of media outlets. So MNET spoke about them having been given compensation and FNC did the best that they can do which is to issue an official apology. But, it still didn't satisfy Crying Nut even one bit. And so they continued with the lawsuit.
What I don't get is why Crying Nut is taking on their hoobae band CNBLUE? Shouldn't their case be directed more to either MNET or FNC? They are the seniors, yes. And so I expected for them to have a wider and more mature mindset. They've made all these request before when they presented this copyright issue to the public and now all their demands were answered both by MNET and FNC and yet they don't want to stop there.
What more do they want from CNBLUE?
What else can CNBLUE give them aside from their sincere apology?
Why bring this up now?
See, with all these questions, some fangirls would start to think negative things about Crying Nut. You can't really stop them from doing so because they are entitled to their own opinions. However crazy or biased those opinions are. I heard they recently announced that they'll be releasing an album this March. If that's true then I'd say those crazy, too-biased fangirls of CNBLUE who thinks Crying Nut is just trying to ride their oppas' fame are damn PSYCHICS.
Thankfully though, some people are still sane enough to see the matter objectively. BLESS THEM FOR THEIR WIDER AND MORE OBJECTIVE MINDSET.
Ami-ah on Netizen Buzz : "It all boils down to that hierarcy of entertainment in Korea where idols are essentially at the bottom of the totem pole. It doesn't matter to them if CNBLUE is faultless in this case; they just see an idol group who's had plagiarism issues in the past vs. arguably the most successful indie rock band in Korea whose been around for the past 15 years. They already feel that idol groups are way too privileged and overexposed since most of them are singers that don't write their music so whenever there's a bumping of heads with "real" artists, it's pretty obvious who they're going to support in the end.
It seems like indie bands reached their breaking point with their animosity towards idol bands so Crying Nut is taking the heat as the first one. I think that if they could, a lot more indie bands would go for the kill just like Crying Nut."
Her comment was just a hit. I mean, this is what I've been thinking as well. Aside from Crying Nut trying to ride CNBLUE's fame which is a very biased thought btw - no need to tell me. I can totally understand the "hate" indie musicians are feeling for these idol groups, 'cause let's admit it - bunch of them groups are just there to stand in front and look good and can't even sing or dance that well. But aren't we forgetting something here?
CNBLUE was once also an indie band, performing on the streets. No one was paying much attention to them before as well. But they didn't give up just yet and still continued making music. And then they got mainstreamed. And that's when people started acknowledging them as "idol" band.
Just, being a hardcore CNBLUE fan, I'd be lying if I say that this issue does not affect me at all. It does. And I wanted so badly to be all SPARTA defending these guys. With all the passion and effort they put into making great music for us fans to enjoy, I feel like they don't deserve all this hate for one overlooked mistake they did in the past.
I just hope this would end well for both parties.
CNBLUE made a mistake and I'm proud of them for admitting it and apologizing. They are still a young band and they have a lot to learn from this episode in their career. Just, whatever happens, I know in myself that I will continue believing in and supporting CNBLUE. Forever a BOICE and proud of it.
Every time I watch G-Dragon perform on stage, I am ALWAYS, always blown away. This guy's stage presence is UNBELIEVABLE. Commanding. Powerful. Sensual. Even the facial expressions he's making are enough for you to feel his passion. Seriously, I can't even imagine if I'm actually watching him before me. I'll probably be squealing like a dying hyena before eventually passing out.
On the other hand though, when I see him in variety shows or watch his interviews, he suddenly turns into this cute person named Kwon Ji Yong doing all these innocent gestures that I swear can make all GD stans go into fan-girl seizure. It makes me want to pull him close to me and cuddle him, take care of him. Ottoke?
In my opinion, among the members of BIGBANG, he's the one who transforms the most when on stage. He turns into another persona.
So randomly, I thought of this: G-Dragon is just too sensual for me. And no I am not complaining. I don't really see K-Pop artists as sensual - the male ones, I mean. I like CNBLUE for a while now and I've never once think of them as sensual guys. Even them being rockstars and all.
But with GD though, I can't... He's just too... Ugh! The feels.
Yes. He's just too damn SEXY and he's not even trying to be. And yeah, so where is this going?
|wish that was my hand. kkk|
Just 'cause I heard that his world tour is rated 18+. I'm not sure if this is confirmed though but yeah, that made me think of this post.
I haven't watched his Shine A Light concert before but I've seen the controversial part of his Breathe performance. It was - WOW! I saw it once and I immediately prayed that no minor was watching that 'cause yeah it was too STEAMY for the younger audience. /I am listening to BIGBANG's Cafe while typing this and GD's falsetto at the end was O_o. Can't let this sexy voice distract me. Must concentrate./
Yeah, so my rant is starting to get longer and longer and so I need to stop now. And no I am not some pervy noona fan, excuse you. GD is an oppa to me! Kkkkk. /so happy to finally have an oppa bias//
Still praying for GD World Tour in Manila to happen. Jebal! I missed the Alive Tour, wasn't able to attend it and now this is my second chance to finally see GD live. JEBAAAAAAAAAL~~
I have to admit I wasn't really a fan of Sandara Park before even when she's still an actress in the Philippines. Yes, she's cute but that's just it. Her personality didn't really stood out for me. And then she went back to Korea and joined YGE's girl group, 2NE1. Yes, it took me a while to finally appreciate the person that is Sandara Park.
To be really honest, I started liking Sandara when I came across the DaraGon ship. That's when I really started paying attention to the both of them. That's when I really became interested with Sandara. That's when I started learning more about her personality. Her life.
It may be true that her voice isn't the strongest in their group. She may not be the best dancer as well. But she knew it. And she's working hard to better herself and to be able to present a better Sandara Park to her fans. I mean, come on~ There are other artists out there that probably has much lesser talent than Sandara and yet they don't get as much hate. I won't
name drop though, no need for that.
Look out how Sandara's been trying to make up for her "lack of talents". She's allowing YG to do all these crazy ideas to her looks. She's not complaining. She may have cried when she shaved off part of her hair but still she didn't gave up.
Look at her. I mean, JUST LOOK AT HER. See how strong she is? Even with all the hate she's getting, she's still doing all she can to improve.
I can't even imagine 2NE1 without Sandara Park. No. That's not possible.
See, this is what I learned from KPop - it may be good or bad for you, it doesn't matter. I know you can be an idol even though you don't sing or dance really well. It's the heart that you have, the passion for what you're doing. It's what makes you stand out and be recognized. Sandara has that. She has the heart and passion for whatever it is she's doing. And so she doesn't give up even when everyone seems to be putting her down. And that made me love her even more. That is just too precious.
Someday, I wish for Sandara Park to finally meet the man who will take care of her and love her until whenever. Yes, I am hoping it would be Kwon Ji Yong. Hey mang, make sure to take care of uri eonni and love her so much and make her cry unless it's tears of joy. For everything you've endured, Sandara, I believe you deserve someone special to spend the rest of your life with.
So random post..
Just 'cause my TL is full of Dara feels brought about by that website.
Anyway, check out this site to learn more about this goddess. You'll find what you need to know here. And this isn't for you to like Sandara. It's for you to think twice on hating her.
"Talent is nothing without a heart. people should remember that. "
OMO! CNBLUE won first on tonight's Music Bank. FINALLY.
Well hello there February! Thank you for welcoming the boys like this~!
So proud of uri boys.
They totally deserve it.
This album is just too DAEBAK. If there were doubts before on CNBLUE's talents, this promotion has already erased those. I mean, these guys are seriously musicians and no one can deny that. They were accused of faking playing those musical instruments before and now see what they did - THEY PLAYED LIVE IN ALMOST EVERY PERFORMANCES.
BOICEs can never get any prouder than this.
