Chingus de latinoamerica!
Hola chingus, Mi nombre es Lili para las que no me conocen jeje Yo soy peruana pero me encanta todo lo que tiene que ver con los doramas, el Kpop, y los bellos bellos oppas!! Soy muy activa en esta comunidad, o bueno intento de serlo, pero algunas veces me quedo atras. Es por eso que les quiero proponer una idea. Yo se que las comunidades de Lee Min Ho, Faith, Kim Hyun Joong, Boys over Flowers, y otras son muy activas, pero me he dado cuenta que son muy pocas las comunidades de Kpop o de musica coreana, o de los grupos de Kpop, o la comunidad de doramas son muy muy inactivas. Chingus somos tantas que esto no puede ser!! Como va ser que el resto del mundo nos gane a nosotras, las latinas, en demostrar nuestra pasion?! Impossible no creen? Es por esta razon que les pido que se unan conmigo para crear unas comunidades de chingus latinas que promueven todo lo que tiene que ver con el hallyu. Entonces lo que yo les propongo es que nos unamos y dentro nuestro grupo imenso, creamos unos grupos mas pequeños para que se encargen en subir mas cosas sobre esa comunidad como el Kpop, o 2PM, o Infinite, o Big Bang, o lo que sea pero que sea Hallyu. Por ejemplo yo me encargo en poner mas recaps, fotos, videos, preestrenos de Faith y de los doramas, pero necesito ayuda :'( No me dejen solita por fa que es demasiado... Entonces si quieren unirse conmigo por favor mandenme un mensaje. Este es el link de mi blog aca --> www.vingle.net/users/lili Si van a esa pagina me mandan un mensaje iendo arriba a la derecha donde hay una foto de una carta. Usa eso para mandarme un mensaje Fighting chingus que unidas las latinas podemos todo!

Kpop is Actually Born from Korean Protest Songs
Alright so I'm a total history nerd, I majored in East Asian Studies and eat stuff like this up. Read the full (long!) article here - I will try to explain it basically, but its really worth the read. Here we go: It all started with Japan. As you might know, Japan colonized Korea eventually trying to erase Korean culture all together on the peninsula. In the very beginning though, that wasn't the case. Japan was willing to share Korean and Japanese culture, and the Japanese and Korean elite often spoke together and traded pop culture. Japanese elite brought over Western-influenced music because of their connections with the Western world (which Korea didn't interact with other than missionaries at the time) The Korean elite wanted to be modern and successful like Japan, so they adopted this music (called Changga) as their new favorite genre. (You can hear a lot of European influences in early Korean music...) This is where it gets interesting. The Korean elite wanted to be independent of Japan. They wanted Korea to stand alone as a strong nation, not pushed around by China or Japan anymore. They stared the pro-independence movement. Now, most revolutions like this would turn to traditional music, traditional culture to strengthen the country (for example, Korea would use ancient Korean songs to protest the Japanese occupation) but the Korean elite didn't! They wanted Korea to be strong, and to be strong they felt like they needed to modernize - ie be like the West. They used this Changga music (ironically brought to them by Japan) to protest Japanese rule! To this day Korea is always trying to "keep up with" the Western world so that they can be considered modern and powerful. Most things that they do is to modernize and stay trendy because that is how the country has always defined strength. But then, Japan decided to make money off of that... Japan had seen its first real pop music hit in 1914. People were buying records, following tabloids, and really getting into pop culture. That was really the birth of the Japanese music industry. In 1926, Korea had a similar experience. A song called the "Death Song" appeared, sung by Yun Shim-Deok. The singer committed suicide with her lover right after the song was released and the story made HUGE headlines. It was chilling, 'romantic,' and dramatic. Korea ate it up. Japanese record companies came in and started selling the record, selling over 50,000 copies! (In 1926 that number is totally insane!) You can listen to the death song here: The record industry after that was run mainly by the Japanese yakuza and their partnered Korean gangsters. The industry was set up very similar to how it is now, with entertainment industries doing everything in-house (SM has specific song writers that only work for SM, and their artists are actors, singers, models, etc) This is also why so many Kpop artists become actors...because even back in the 1920s musicians couldn't make enough money so the real way to make a living was through acting. That still stands today. So, today's Kpop is based off of this first "Korean pop" hit (the death song) AND protest songs against Japan. So when people say that Kpop is just a copy of Western music, they're sort of right but not in the way that they're thinking. Yes, its a reflection of Western culture, but the reason behind it is that Korea has been fighting to be recognized as a modern, powerful force to be reckoned with since the early 1900s. They want people to know Korea is strong, modern, and a country to look up to, not look down upon. So the next time someone tells you Kpop is a lame copy of American pop - give them this little history lesson. Again, PLEASE read the full article - its so interesting! HERE it is!

AYYYYEEE LAYYYYDEEEEEZZZ PLAYLIST ("Ladies Week" Soundtrack to Life Playlist Challenge)
Well I do my best to participate in these Soundtrack to Life Challenges..... and girl groups and female artists in general aren't my forte so I was drawing a blank at first but then I remembered I know good music. So I was all..... So it takes a few things for a female artist to get my attention....and no cleavage does not give you bonus points. FEROCITY.....baby gotta be fierce either in attitude or talent. Owning their sexuality by doing that whole "I am woman hear me roar" thang without slapping me in the face with feminism then making me choke on it because damnit I'm a woman I know the struggle. Third, keep it classy because it's so easy for females to be oversexualized in this industry. And naturally, they gotta ooze a lil swag. I'm not hating on cutesy concepts but I like a lil edge. My playlist is obviously a lil heavy on the k-hiphop....but hey, I can dig a bomb vocalist here and there too. I think I got a fair mix (•̀ᴗ•́)و So let's get started...... SPICA__YOU DON'T LOVE ME EYE LOVE THIS VINTAGE PIN-UP CONCEPT. The 1950s....the hair...the fashion...the makeup....head to toe they were looking so sexy without taking it too far. And the ladies can SANG. Side note.....could've done without the buttpads....but the struggle is real. HISUHYUN FT BOBBY__I'M DIFFERENT They're down playing their diva with the adorkableness in this MV....AND I LOVE IT. They're so cute I wanna squish them! Not literally..... because that would be sick and wrong...... @2:07 Bobby Kim....it was written in the stars that Junhoe is my iKON bias so WHY YOU GOTTA DO ME LIKE THAT?? *dies* NS YOON-G__YASISI This song, concept, and choreo are all quite sexy but it's not overdone. And you bet your ass I lip sync for my life when this comes on during a playlist. *snap* WERK! Uuuggghh and she's so gorgeous.... and that bodyguard tho.....How YOU doin, baby? (•ؔʶ̷ ˡ̲̮ ؔʶ̷)✧ DARA__KISS Dara is my 2NE1 bias....I just love her. She just straight up bitch-slaps Lee Minho literally AND figuratively in this MV....and y'all know I'm feelin that lol. Don't you dare try to change my Dara....I'll cut you (≧▽≦)/~┴┴ AILEE__U & I I fell in love with Ailee when this was released....now I know what I say here may be taken the wrong way but I LOVED HER FULLER FIGURE. I'm not throwing shade at her for losing some weight but I did appreciate and applaud the fact that she came out here singing the sh*t outta this song and rocking that choreo with her curvy self. Still love her either way tho. RIMI__I'M HOT I woke uppp with this song in my head ♪v(⌒o⌒)v♪ Only recently got into her butttt I've got mad respect for her. A female rapper that can hold her own with the best of the boys. CHOI SAM__GAZES Call an ambulance....she just killed us all. This girl is F*CKING AMAZING. She has SEVEN mixtapes out to date. Like wtf??? Where the hell have I been?? And yeah, I'm aware home girl looks like Zico's twin lol. I'm actually crossing my fingers for a collaboration.... That'd be SICK. RIMI__RAP MESSIAH @MattK95 put your ears on this and lemme know what you think. I rubbed this track all over my ears earlier today and. It. Was. Awesome. Then I downloaded and listened to the album in it's entirety....and yes, It. Was. Awesome. CHEETAH__CRAZY DIAMOND Cheetah bae is a BEAST. But she's such a lady. She'll dab the corners of her mouth with a napkin after she eats your heart right outta your chest. I LUFF HUUUH! F(X)__RED LIGHT This comeback was fierce perfection. The MV and concept were so edgy....the girls were looking FUH-lawless....it was so sharp I got paper cuts on my eyeballs. Real talk tho.....Dance to this like an idiot with a resting bitchface and it will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. TRUST. JUCY of EVOL FT HYANA__MUSIC IS ♡♪Just vibe to this♪♡ VASCO X SHANNON X GIRIBOY__BREATH I had to include this ballad. Shannon Williams has got to be one of my favorite female vocalists in Kpop. She's young still but she shows such vocal control and finesse. To be able to hold her own with Vasco and Giriboy takes some chops....she's phenomenal. LYDIA PAEK__AYO Now this is awesome....I absolutely adore her. FYI Gray the Bae produced this track which just makes it that much more awesome (๑^ں^๑) YOON MI RAE__#CAPTURE THE CITY HAIL THE QUEEN. I realize this is a song for a CF buttttt the production on this track is outta sight. Its FANF*CKINGTASTIC. And can we just appreciate how beautiful she looks rocking a ponytail and T-shirt?? GAWWJUSSS(((´♡‿♡`+)))。 Okay children...I better end it there before I go on all day. Bit of wisdom from Kat.....girls, don't ever forget to own your femininity and all your womanly gorgeousness whether your thick, thin, small, or tall. There ain't nothing more boss than loving yourself. ♡♥♡♥
