►►Son DamBi’s comeback album to release in March..going against Lee Hyori?


BRAVE BROTHERS AGAIN?! okayyyy Dambi, if you really want to compete with the world out there, I don’t think you should go back to the same composer over and over (their music is starting to sound the same to me…notice After School and U-KISS’ songs!) :/

‘Dancing queen’ Son DamBi will be making her singer comeback in March.

Son DamBi revealed back stage to 19th High1 Seoul Music Awards on 3rd February where she was awarded the BonSang, “I will comeback with a new album in March. I will be working with Brave Brothers who composed ‘Saturday Night’ for this comeback.”

Son DamBi and Brave Brothers are called the ‘perfect match’ in Kpop circle. Son DamBi’s previous hits like ‘Crazy’ and ‘Saturday Night’ are all works of Brave Brothers. Son DamBi said,”Please look forward to a new transformation and a even cooler track for my comeback.”

With news of Son DamBi’s comeback 4th album next month, which happens to fall in the same time period as Lee Hyori’s 4th album comeback, much anticipation from music fans as to how the ’showdown of the sexy queens’ will turn out.

►►Son Dambi to make her comeback next February


That’s a good choice. I hope she stick to the singing instead of acting (my case in point: her fail with the drama “Dream”…even with help from the handsome Kim Bum!)


Son Dambi, who was recently spotted performing her 2009 hit “Saturday Night” on both SBS Gayo Daejun and KBS Gayo Daejun, will be making a comeback in February of 2010.

Son Dambi said, “I am shooting for February. I want to make a comeback then so I’m collecting songs now. I’m going to start recording as soon as the new year comes around.”

She’s definitely played around with different types of dance songs and it looks like she’s going to try something new this time. In November, she went to Los Angeles to talk to famous choreographers and vocal teachers for lessons.

In the first half of 2010, she will work as a singer and for the second half, she will challenge herself again in acting.

This year’s MBC Gayo Daejun will take place at the MBC Dream Center on the 31st. The MC’s are Kim Gura, Lee Bo Young, and Shin Jung Hwan but what you should be excited about is the line up.

It’s definitely going to be hard to beat SBS Gayo Daejun’s line up but with the 2PM and SNSD joint stage, it might be possible.

2PM also is planning on having a dance battle with Park Jin Young which will be interesting since both of them are known to be excelling in dancing. 2PM’s Taecyeon will also be performing together with SNSD’s YoonA.

Jewelry will put on a memorable and touching performance with Park Jung Ah and Seo In Young. Other than Jewelry, other girl groups will perform to show their unique looks and this year’s hit songs.

Baek Ji Young will perform My Ear’s Candy with Lee Seung Gi instead of Taecyeon. Awkward Lee Seung Gi grinding with Baek Ji Young, interesting.

EDIT: Nickhun to have a duet (and shows off his piano skills!) with actress Lee Bo Young, one of the MCs on this night.

Here is the full list of artistes that are set to perform:
2PM, JYP, Baek Ji Young, Lee Seung Gi, SNSD, Super Junior, KARA, SHINee, After School, Brown Eyed Girls, Kim Tae Woo, MC Mong, Son Dambi and more.

►►Top artist/actor search of 2009 on Nate and Naver


For those who don’t know, Nate and Naver are virtually the two biggest search portals in Korea. So making this chart would mean a lot 😉

Above (Top artist search: [1]2NE1 [2]2PM [3]SNSD [4]After School [5]Kara [6]f(x) [7]Brown Eyed Girls [8]G-Dragon [9]Lee Seung Ki [10]4Minute) (Top actor search: [1]Lee Minho [2]Koo Hye Sun [3]Han Hyo Joo [4]Han Yeh Sul [5]Park Bo Young [6]Lee Jun Ki [7]Kim Bum [8]Yoon Eun Hye [9]Shin Sae Kyung [10]Jang Geun Suk)

Usually, being the most searched celebrity on a search engine shows the fame that a certain person has. Well 2009 wasn’t any different for these headline hoggers.

The most searched artists on Korean search engine and media portal Nate.com in 2009 was the new girl group 2NE1. They debuted with their single “Fire” in May of this year. So in over half a year, they became the most searched artists on Nate. What a big achievement considering the fact that 2PM and SNSD came in second and third respectively.

►►Singer Ivy tells it, “If you can sing, be a singer, but if you can’t, don’t.”


Netizens: “Gyuri, Goo Hara, Yoona, Jessica, Sandara Park, Seung Ri, Sohee, Taecyeon, Nichkhun, Chansung, Super Junior, Minho, Hyung Joon… are you listening?”

https://i0.wp.com/i47.tinypic.com/ndvhfp.jpg

Singer Ivy shared an unobstructed word of advice for her hoobaes (juniors) on an episode of her own reality show on M.net IVY BACK that aired on the 16th.

Having successfully graduated from Seoul’s Dongduk Women’s University, Ivy returned to the stage alongside her hoobaes who also aspire to become singers. The performer lent a word of advice to them: “If you can sing, be a singer, but if you can’t, don’t. If you don’t heed my advice, I will punish you.”

She added, “When I see an aspiring singer who can’t sing, I feel like that the person only wants to become a singer to become a celebrity.”

Even netizens, who are the bane of all Korean celebrities’ existence, agreed with Ivy:
“[Son] Dambi, Ivy is calling for you~~”
“Honestly, Ivy sounds good live. I’m neither an anti or a fan, but I think she’s right…”
“This kind of advice can only be given by a capable person like Ivy herself…”
“Gyuri (KARA), Goo Hara (KARA), Yoona (SNSD), Jessica (SNSD), Sandara Park (2NE1), Seung Ri (Big Bang), Sohee (Wonder Girls), Taecyeon (2PM), Nichkhun (2PM), Chansung (2PM), Super Junior, Minho (SHINee), Hyung Joon (SS501)… are you listening?”

Cr: allkpop

okay netizens..I only agree with HALF of the singers you listed. Taecyeon, Nickhun, Super Junior (Kyuhyun at least mkay?) CAN sing! geez and Son Dambi CAN sing too! =.=;

but I totally know what Ivy mean…some singers really just want to become singers to get fame 😦
