[UPDATED] Evolution of Kpop (1995 – 2011) Part 3 Focuses on the Negative Parts of the Hallyu Wave

After re-uploading part 2 of this project, I felt bad to all the people that I told to check part two out TWICE. In order to show appreciation and apologize for all the glitches and problems, I decided to upload part three even quicker. I would’ve uploaded this Friday, but I thought, I might as well now. Smiley faces?

Anyway, part three will not be thoroughly fun for hardcore kpop fans who can’t take negative criticisms nicely. Continue reading


[Movie Review] The Wonder Girls At The Apollo

Well, just yesterday I finally watched Wonder Girls’ movie titled “The Wonder Girls at the Apollo.” Because I watched the movie, I thought it’d be a fun idea to do a movie review for it. Now, I’m going to be harsh and I’m going to be nice. I observed almost everything about the movie. To their styles, their walk and of course their performance. Now, I did not leave the crew behind the camera out also. I watched the editing, I watched for lighting and I also watched for how the camera operator performed. Some people may ask “how would I know these things?” Well, I actually take film classes and acting classes, so I understand 70/30 of everything that was going on. This will be an interesting journey. Won’t it, KoJos?

Okay, let’s start with the story. The story was, well, cliché. Continue reading

Evolution of Kpop (1995 – 2011) Part 1 … NOW OUT!!

Honestly, this project took over three months to complete from finding information, translating, downloading, brainstorming, editing, saving, losing files and so on. This was one of the longest project I had done. To even better the video, I spent my hard earned time trying to find a perfect editing software to make the video look clean cut for all of you guys and trust me, I tried. It may not look nice and neat to some, but please understand the time spent to make this video.

Firstly, let me explain what this video is about. The first video (part 1) will introduce what the Hallyu Wave and Kpop are. It will discuss the international fame it took and then we shall move on to videos and music. If you don’t understand what I mean, watch the video. Continue reading

Evolution of Kpop Trailer.. OUT!

Remember how I said I’d make a video on how Kpop music has progressed for a few years… well, I’m almost done! In order to tease those who have been waiting for it and to open the eyes of those who never knew about it, I made a 1 minute and thirty five second trailer. It’s not the best editing job, but it’s something, right?

This project pretty much talks about how Kpop has grown since the year of 1995 to 2011. I will separate the years in parts, so I can handle giving the videos out without making people wait too much. The video will talk about what Kpop is and how the Hallyu Wave is slowly taking a strong impact across the world. If you don’t know what the Hallyu Wave is, expect to know what it is by the time I begin uploading the videos. The video will also contain information on Kpop from the 90s to now. It will also inform viewers on the negative and postive impacts of it and some of the information I found was actually pretty shocking. Continue reading
