Block B and Tiny G – What a combination! ^^
These recommendations were so good this week! I wasn’t expecting to like both groups so much. I most definitely think I still need to hear more of their music, but what I saw from these two videos is enough to make me a fan now. And that is a good thing.
Doing the Kpop vlogs has opened up so much of Korea online that I tended to normally ignore. If any of you reading this watch our “LIKE IT” segments, then you may already realize that both Steph and I have a decent understanding of Korea and what its like to live and work here. It really is quite possible for anyone to come here to live, work full time and still not know a damn thing about Kpop. It sounds bizarre, but I’ve met plenty of foreigners who live here and couldn’t care less about Big Bang, G-Dragon and Block B. And I know from first hand experience because I used to be one of them.. But not anymore.
I reviewed two new videos that came out about 7 days ago.
Block B – Very Good
Block B is with a new music label: Seven Seasons. Not sure what to think of this, but the video seemed to turn out very well, so I’m thinking it was a good move for them. If you read the Wikipedia on Block B, it says they left their old company because they were not getting paid. Getting paid is an important thing in this world, so if they weren’t receiving payment for services rendered, I’m happy to know they are with a new company. I think this might be the reason why their video ‘Very Good’ still has less than a million views as of October 10th, 2013. People must still not be used to the fact that they are with a new label and therefore, other than searching on YouTube might not know on what channel, or where to find the music video.
Tiny G – Miss You
To date, this video still only has less than 300,000 views. I’m trying to figure out why. Loenent, their music label has over 1,300,000 subscribers and is quite established by now.
A couple quick notes about this video and Tiny G:
1. They are four members 3 of which are 18 years old, and one that is 15. I said in the vlog that my favorite was Myung-ji. And, of course! ..it just so happens that the one that caught my eye right away was also the youngest one in the group. Go figure. She’s awfully sexy for her age, and my instinct (by the way she looked and was dressed in this particular video) was that she was at least 18 years old. A search of ‘Tiny G’ in Google images brings results that show four women that are, by and large, much younger looking in photos taken only about a year ago. So Loenent did themselves a solid by presenting these ladies in a (sort of) brand new light in this vid. And.. she does look mature for her age in the Miss You video, so I guess that’s a good thing.
2. It takes time for anything good in this world to develop, and it looks like the same goes for Tiny G. The longer they are on the seen, the more likely their fame will prosper. I see good things in the future for this young group, and I haven’t even seen any of their other videos, or listened to any of their other songs yet!
I’m having a blast so far watching these videos and doing the Kpop vlogs, so pleeeeeease keep the recommendations coming!
Thanks you guys! ☺
