I was editing my project for the whole little “Evolution of Kpop (1995 – 2011)” stuff and this was one of the songs that would be included in the project, but not revealed in the trailer of course. Thanks to this little project that I’m doing, I have a TON of throwback Kpop videos for all of you guys to check out. Anyway, I heard the song throughout while editing and this song is just beautifully.. mean. Lyric wise. But the voices were surprising and soft and just all around great. The lyrics just surprise me cause it’s really ballad and then to find out he’s talking about leaving his girlfriend.. shocking.
This throwback song is titled “Lies” by g.o.d. Now, g.o.d debuted in the year of 1999 with the song “To Mother.” They immediately became one of the hottest boy bands in all of KPop history. Their name g.o.d (지오디) stands for Groove Over Dose. Neat, huh? Their group name is usually lowercase, so many wouldn’t confuse or criticize them for using God. Continue reading →
This is one of the few songs that are probably on the playlist of many people in Japan. If you do not know this song, I feel ashamed of you because this is the most selling single in Japan… EVER! If you do not know who Utada Hikaru is… She’s pretty much the Michael Jackson of Japan. She produces, writes and composes most of her music. She’s been going at her music for over 10 years. Utada is probably one of the most influential artist in all of Japan.. alongside with Ayumi Hamasaki. Continue reading →
This will be the first throwback that will be made on KJP’s page. This new category and topic is made in order to inform new or ‘not to well known of past Asian pop music’ listeners to embark on the good ‘ol days in which Asian pop was all about the voice and ‘new’ music rather than sex and auto-tunes. I haven’t been into kpop for a very long time so this will also be something new to me. I will try to post 2 – 4 times a month so people can enter a new world they never saw before. Throwback music will include songs from the 1950s to 2009. And as the years pass by a whole new year will be added (e.g. 2011, 2009. 2012, 2010. 2013, 2011). It will also include songs from Japan, Taiwan and our precious Korea. Maybe some drop ins from China too. Eh eh. Interesting huh? I will only pick one song, not one artist to keep a topic on. Well, why don’t we get started.
This topic will be about S.E.S.’s “Dreams Come True.” Some people have heard topics and songs from S.E.S. and I know everyone thinks “Who or what is S.E.S?” S.E.S. stands for the names of the members in the group. S = Sea. E = Eugene. S = Shoo. They were under SM Entertainment Continue reading →
