M!Countdown – 07/08/2014

Lip service rendition of thrift shop Too fancy was great, I love the new girls voice, Mush though I love Cora I think Anna adds a particular vocal element they lacked before.

Park Kyung is such a little Bias slayer isn’t he??

Oh Rise, what are they doing to you?

Red velvet were definitely singing a large portion live weren’t they bless them, These shows mics are so bad. Power to them though!

A million times better this comeback for Stellar, Well done girls.

I quite liked BTS’ performance, but that might have been the fire…..

I’m loving this comeback of secrets, did not like Hyoseong’s outfit this time, the other girls outfits were lovely though!

Kara’s come back is ‘so good’ I loved both performances!

Taemins stages were pretty cool to watch, I actually quite liked pretty boy as a song too 😀

Congratualtions  Winner!

M!Countdown – 31/07/2014

Still love It girl…..In fact i’m loving this style of music in Kpop full stop!

Bestie’s song has grown on me a lot, I still don’t like it as much as Pitapat or Thankyou though. Their legs are so incredible though!

Ahh, ever the showman Henry…good going. I just wish he didn’t come across as such a rude idiot in interviews 😦

Block B’s outfits may be TERRIBLE, but I swear their performances of HER just get better and better! PO has such a camp walk though, makes me lol every time.

HA:TFELT’s Performance was great – GO YENNY!

Gongratulations Sistar!

M!Countdown – 17/07/2014

10th Anniversary special, here we go!

Bit of a slow start for me, Ballads everywhere!

I’ve been reading a lot of hate for AOA’s cover of Tell me….I lOVED it. A lot. Yes even more than the SNSD wonder girls covers we have seen in the past.

I think it may have been hot there, Poor Gain looks like she is melting! Miryo and Narsha are looking especially smoking these days though!

I quite liked B1A4’s Fantastic baby, but Shh don’t tell anyone!

Block B’s HER was great live, They are so fun to watch!

I am not a Rain fan, but Got7’s medley of his songs was pretty fun to watch.

Block B and dynamic duo all looked like they were having so much fun!

YAY OMGZORZ Exo….and i’m calm again!

M!Countdown – 17/07/2014

J-min is awesome, sorta reminds be of 90’s indie rock!

Lucky J were amazing, lovely to hear a girl singing who isn’t just trying to smash glass!

Kim Wan Sun….A bit of a hotty or is it just me?

Oh my word, What colour are Got7 wearing?!

Well done F(x)!

M!Countdown – 10/07/2014

A girls,girls,girls special today….YAY!

Cha Cha is a terrible song, the girls are stunning though. The shorts were just a it too tight fitting around the crotch though ladies.

The girls from Bestie look more and more grown up every time I see them perform.

Gain’s outifit for truth or dare was stunning, so stunning.

WOW! Sunmi looked amazing, I really did not recognise her here!

I was so glad i got another opportunity to see orange caramel perorm Catallena…..so much fun!

ARGHH APINK! My old nemesis…..

M!Countdown – 03/07/2014

I hope I wasn’t the only one who heard TAHITI’s really loud, angry-sounding male fan?

I adore Bigflo, I love the dance and the song. The outfits were awful though. I mean were they deliberately bad to make them seem more blokey?

LU:KUS were a little underwhelming. The rookie group standard has now been set so high that O.K. just isn’t good enough.

Hyomin has single handedly reduced herself to a set of figures to me. Especially with all the interviews she’s been doing about the frankly ridiculous extent she went to to make sure she had a nice body for this terrible song. I really do despise the song, and I LIKE sexy concepts. She also really shouldn’t do any interviews, I swear you can hear the wind whistle through her ears.

Luna and Victoria are so beautiful, aren’t they? I really like ‘Milk’. It has a slinky, sexy feel and was nice and catchy!

Red Light is good, but it definitely has the kind of rhythm that grows on you. I love their stage outfits for this one though!

Congratulations Taeyang!

M!Countdown – 19/06/2014

It’s M!countdown Thursday, let’s go!

Oh Junhyoseong, you’re so beautiful.

Bob girls, Please watch Junhyoseongs earlier performance to understand sexy. I’d say they move like planks of wood, but a plank of wood might just be sexier. I’ll say it again, no clothes on does not always = sexy.

Lena parks performance was good, the mic had far to much of a hollow echo to it though, I loved the dancers doing a routine that actually matched the style of music. Poor costume choice for the girl wearing silver dance shorts under her black skirt though…

Kinda like Big flo, I do seem to like the overly agressive rap/pop. There was a bit of a block B feel to it if I am honest, but that doesn’t bother me. If these guys are marketing themselves like this something about Block B’s recipe must work.

I loved GOT7’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’, Not so much a fan of this, although I am hoping it will grow on me.

Mamamoos song is great, they looked like they were enjoying the performance too. I’m not sure why people think they are super original with their concept though?

YAY AOA are back, Fantasy was meh, just your typical Kpop B side. Bob cut however was great fun to see live, their outfits were great and the dance is super fun. Not all of them suit bob cuts though.

Congratulations Taeyang!

M!Countdown – 12/06/2014

Hello Internet, hear me roar. Or you know, quietly type my thoughts on M!countdown.

Bob girls are the least sexy girl group ever. Whenever there were backing dancers onstage I found them far more captivating.

‘Bob girls’ seems to be based on the theory that if someone just takes all their clothes off they must be sexy right?

Toppdogg..Hmm… I’m not actually into these guys, they are definitiely umm….interesting? Let’s leave it at that shall we?

Could someone explain how Cherry filter fit into the Korean Music industry for me. I like rock and metal but this sounded terrible to me. Are they an alt band or are they idols imaged to be like an alt band?

Well TAHITI’s offering didn’t exactly fire me up, not –quite bubblegum pop, with bad dancing AND bad lip syncing. PICK ONE!

#Freejunhyoseongsboobs had a setback this week, yes it was see-through, but why the terrible neckline?

Congratulations Taeyang !

M!Countdown – 05/06/2014

Welcome to another week of my bizarre ramblings on M!Countdown.

The M.Pire war of attrition is having affect, a billion or so views in, and I’m starting to the find the chorus catchy. Just the chorus mind, and the guys are pretty to look at.

15& are not my favourite group but this song isn’t to bad. That black and white mini-dress was gorgeous, I want!

Crush’s debut seemed to rely heavily on the back up dancers. It’s always disappointing when the camera spends more time on them that the act themselves.

Also why call the song ‘hug me’ then have the girls pelvic thrusting while you sing that line? If you’re going to do that, get some guts and call the song ‘fuck me’ even if it means you can;t go on music shows. All in all it seems like a half hearted, embarrassing attempt to be wannabe gangsters. In fact from now on when i see Crush my brain will imagine Wheatus – Wannabe gangster is playing.

Speaking of ‘wannabe gangsters’, Boyfriends Intro….’Nuff said’

The actual song , Obsession isn’t actually bad. Might be a grower I can’t tell. The visual going on here hurts my eyes though.

I think the concept must be ‘Clean-cut, dirty, Gangster, nice boys’ (They were going for and Oxymoron theme) but instead of looking like Oxymoron’s, they just look like morons.

Grr, mic drama for BTL, caused by mouth coverings maybe. If so their performance is clearly only partially live, T/his is what I expect to be honest but its better with the illusion of fully live.

Those crazy loud fanchants= yay for VIXX. Not a fan of those hip rolls though.

Is that Ji Yeon dancing the original Choreo still? Good for you M!Countdown!

The award for worst dressed for epileptics goes to ….Infinite. Sorry guys but white suits and flashing lights are fun for no-one.

Good to see my #FreeHyoseongsBoobs campaign having an affect. For anyone who doesn’t know, I just want her to be allowed to wear necklines the same as flat chested stars can rather than hideously unflattering clothes. Those of us with a  but have to stick together.

ZE:A – I don’t get the fuss about these guys, someone want to explain in the comments below?

All 11 (Shh, Don;t mention Kris) members of EXO have gotten together. I say 11 of them we watch 2 of them sing while the others do a very dull back up dance.

But then….OVERDOSE YAY. They are so impressive to watch. I won’t lie, EXO are one of the few boy band’s who have appealed to me.

Congratulations Infinite!

M!Countdown – 29/05/2014

It’s that time you have all been waiting for, M!countdown!!!!!

Berry good…Berry bad. Sorry but they are. It’s twee, with a disturbing sexual elements and the singing sound terrible. Really don’t bother.

AKMU might be wrapping up their promotions now, but I hope they won’t be too long I want more stuff like this on my music shows!

I loved BTOB’s legend 100 stage, I felt a little bit like I was living in an episode of ‘Fresh prince’.

15&’s sugar is growing on me as a song, but this performance sounded a bit weird, like the backing track was off timing wise or something? it just didn’t sound right!

Ji Yeon’s performance was good, but the peach tone to her outfit didn’t really seem to suit the performance.

Junhyoseong was very nearly allowed to show some cleavage today, cant help but feel the poor girl is being punished for having a bust, she always seem to have to wear excessively high necklines for live performances. The choreo changes for the skirt were nicely done though!

The pre-song little bit by VIXX was pretty cool, uninterrupted live the dance looks pretty good actually, I was a bit disappointed by it in the video but seeing it as one performance I could see the choppy elements I know and love VIXX for!

Congratulations Infinite!
