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.

Rookie Female Group nominees

Having seen the five groups show up suddenly and made a comet-like impact upon the K-Pop world, many are extremely curious as to who will MAMA choose to be the rookie female group of the year.

The live broadcast of the 2009 MAMA will take place on November 21 at Seoul’s Jamsil Stadium. People that live outside of Korea, don’t give your hopes up yet, because there’s a reason why MAMA is titled MAMA!

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)

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)

SNSD ‘X’ Treatment

If anything, So Nyeo Shi Dae looked worn out enough during the after-concert interview for their China ShangHai SMTown Live 08 concert.

The truth is that there is more to those tired looks of the girls than you thought..

 

During the SMTown Live 08 concert performance in China ShangHai last weekend, even though there was no silent even during So Nyeo Shi Dae’s performance, something else was going on in the audience crowd.

Fans had actually raised out the ‘X’ signs using their lightsticks to voice their disagreements to So Nyeo Shi Dae.

Reason being that SNSD Tifanny apparently went on a broadcast show where she uttered the words ‘SiChuan province’ and ‘Taiwan’ and after saying the words laughed on the show. This apparently angered the China fans…

I don’t get why they wanna get angry with them for laughing after uttering a few words… I think I should look for the video… -.-
