Bye MKMF, Hi MAMA.

20091023_mamaawards_572
The year 2009 was like a gust of wind that has brought along tons of new girls groups, but whose hand will MAMA (no pun intended but that’s the acronym) hold now?

Major Korean music channel Mnet has announced that their Mnet Korean Music Festival (MKMF) will now be renamed as Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA)!

Mnet announced on October 23 that the live broadcast will change its concept and the way they will handle how people may vote for which artist wins the award.

Mnet also announced that Park Ji Yoon, SG Wannabe’s Kim Yong Jun and Lee Seok Hoon will become the new MC’s of the event.

SNSD makes their comeback in January 2009

After two aborted attempts and a year of relatively inactivity on the music front as a group, So Nyeo Shi Dae will make their comeback in January 2009.

They are currently filming their music video and a teaser clip is due on 2nd January. This will be followed by their comeback performance via Music Bank on 9th January. It will not be a full-length album like most hoped but a mini-album which will drop in the same week. The new song will be composed by E-Tribe, the same person who created U-Go-Girl for Lee Hyori and Pretty Girl for Kara. So Nyeo Shi Dae are expected to stick with their cutesy concept.

Seo Taeji influenced by SNSD?

This is an excert from a news interview that Seo Taeji had recently.

Reduced: 98% of original size [ 520 x 347 ] – Click to view full image

You dance for the first time in 13 years in “Human Dream,” are you planning on coming back as a dance singer?

Honestly when I was preparing the record I wasn’t thinking of that but I have had thoughts of putting in “haeng wi ye sul” (=a street performance) or “pet shop boys” kinds of motions. As I was filming the MV, I came up with a lot of ideas and I decided to go with a somewhat imaginary singing atmosphere. This naturally led to having the color “pink” and that in turn gave way to a bright and cheery feel, not unlike that of idol group So Nyuh Shi Dae, and then so I decided to match a dance to that and met with choreographer Seo Gichul to make some moves up. There’s nothing weird with that since I can go around and proudly state that I come from a dance singer background. Last week I met Yang Hyunsuk and even asked him if, “he could compete with me.” (laughs)

SNSD’s comeback

Together with Wonder Girls, they transformed last year into a ‘girl’ revolution, and now SNSD is set to make their comeback.

At the end of this month, SNSD will introduce their second album and will be a part of this eventful autumn that has been full of the top singers making their comebacks in the music industry.

SM Entertainment recently released a statement saying, “SNSD’s new album will have dance, ballads and other various genres. Moreover, if last year’s debut was full of fresh charm, then for this new album, we will show you a SNSD that has been upgraded with a more feminine feel.”

Facing the release of their new album, they have been taking methods to become more closer to their fans. The best case of this would be their reality program “SNSD’s Factory Girl” that premiered on the 8th on the cable channel MNet. This program showcases the entertaining situations that occur to SNSD as they transform into editors for a fashion magazine. All of this is in an attempt for them to become closer with their fans as the release of their album draws nearer.

This program was actually filmed following their conclusion of their promotional activities for their first album and during a break time that they had. They matched the broadcast time with the time that the new album is set to release in order to increase the effectiveness of their promotion.

The important thing to note here is that thus far, SM has not released an official statement regarding the release of SNSD’s album until this statement. Furthermore, the Korean press is not known for its (ahem) journalistic integrity, and that is why there has been numerous conflicting reports of the album release date. Some said mid-October, some said early November, this one says late October. The fact that SM has not given an official date yet means that you should NOT be getting all excited and then disappointed with the reports from sites like Melon or Dosirak that have (or had) release dates on their charts or from blog sites. Until something is released from the official SM camp, don’t believe anything else that comes out about the album.

That being said, the one thing that’s clear is that the second album WILL be released very very soon.

So look forward to it ^^

An Interview with 2008 representative idol icons — SNSD

9-Member Girl Group SNSD

this is a part of a series of interviews the writer did where he interviewed different idol groups.

“These days we’ve gained “samchon fans” among our fans. It seems like our range of fans have increased. If you go to a fan signing, there’s even 30 or 40 year old samchons (uncles) who come bringing ginseng and herbal medicine for us.” (Yoona)

Nine member girl group SNSD has been reborn as the nation’s girl dongseng group. Starting from teenagers to 30 year olds out in the workforce, the people listen to their songs and follow along to their dances, excited and enthusiastic.

Following along exactly with the fresh and new image of teenagers, SNSD has been showing the public a different side to the image of girl groups in the 90s, with groups such as SES and FinKL that had a sexy and innocent concept.

I did an interview with SNSD members Taeyeon, Yoona and Seohyun.

— How did you spend your trainee days.

“Everything was so fascinating and fun. I was happy to learn such a variety of things and I was always nervous thinking of how I was getting closer to my dreams” (Yoona)

— How was the training that you received.

“Everyone is trained in singing, dancing, acting and foreign languages. And depending on your individual talents or if you had a particular area you wanted to emphasize, you would receive a slightly different training.”

— If there was something that sets SNSD apart from the other girl bands.

“Since we have more members, we can show a variety of different charms and we can be active in more areas. Because we can be active not just as a group, but also individually.” (Yoona)
“Our point is to show a bright and healthy image that matches our age. It would probably be that we are showing an image and music that matches our age.” (Taeyeon)

— They say that idol groups break up easily.

“On average, we have members that have been together for at least five years. So we have a feeling of being real sisters.” (Yoona)
“Monitoring each other on tv is a given. More than just that, we confide in each other and we really spend time together like a family. And since im the maknae, my unnies take care of me even more. I don’t think we will be broken apart very easily.” (Seohyun)

— Tell us of what we can expect in the future
“Through diverse acting, I want to be recognized as a skilled actress.” (Yoona)
“There are so many sides that I haven’t shown to you yet, so please look forward to it.” (Seohyun)
“I’m thinking of embarking on new territory in addition to doing the radio DJ that I am doing now.” (Taeyeon)

Earlier this year, Tae Yeon provided the vocals for KBS2 drama OST for ‘Hong Gil Dong’ starring Sung Yuri as Huh Enoc. The song was titled ‘If’ and grabbed many people’s attention. With Tae Yeon’s exeptional voice and sad tone, she was able to lead the OST to the top of the charts.

Okay.. I just went to Change some MYR (Malaysian Ringgit) to KRW (Korea Won) that day.. and

MYR 0.0027 = 1 KRW

so..

MYR 27.00 = 10,000 KRW

40,000 KRW = MYR 108.00 or something like that..

but! the currency converter online said that 40,000 KRW = MYR 98.00, so.. its equals to MYR 100 like that..

[ Converter ] <<< just go too this site if u wana change to ur country’s currency..

Good Luck if u wana join it..
