Channel[V] came up with another battle between artists. If last time they caught the attention of many people elfs maybe (again) they may be able to fool a lot of fangirls into their trap again.
The new battle is entitled Battle of the Pop: Boys Vs. Girls. So are these guys sexists? It’s gonna be a battle between fangirls and fanboys. Round 1 consists of 32 artists (either solo or group). Of course you can’t expect these guys to pick out many interesting artists. I mean even the the songs they know on the particular artist are way outdated. They should have at least done their research.
The match-ups I find quite interesting are…
Rain Vs. BoA
Super Junior Vs. Girls’ Generation/SNSD
Picking Gee is forgivable but geez…they should have at least chosen “Sorry Sorry” for the featured song of SJ especially that they used the same song “One Love” on the previous battles.
BoA, South Korea’s top pop star, has embarked on a full-blown promotion tour of her songs through American radio broadcasts.
Following her visit to WDRE, a radio broadcaster in Long Island, Wednesday, BoA plans to visit famed radio broadcasters in New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Florida, Orlando, Miami and Seattle, according to Yonhap News.
While visiting broadcasters, she will have a string of interviews with famous DJs and introduce “I Did It For Love,” the flagship song of her U.S. debut album entitled “BoA,” and other songs.
Given that the radio is a key publicity means in the U.S. pop world, the forthcoming radio tour will serve a good occasion for BoA, 22, to get closer to fans in the world’s largest album market.
Meanwhile, the music video of “I Dit It For Love,” directed by Joseph Kahn, has been unveiled at BoA’s official Web site (www.boaamerica.com) and other American Web sites, Yonhap said. Kahn had made promos for Britney Spears, Chris Brown and Eminem and won the Best Video of the Year and Best Direction at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards.
BoA released her U.S. album on March 17 amid high expectations that she will be able to reenact her success story in Japan in the United States.
The album contains 11 songs including “I Did It For Love” and dance tracks “Energetic,” “Eat You Up,” and “Look Who’s Talking.”
BoA’s album ranked 127th on the Billboard 200 Album Charts announced on March 26. It was the first time that a Korean singer had entered the Billboard chart.

Korean Artists Se7en, BoA, The Wonder Girls, and Japanese artist Utada Hikaru have a half page feature in the April 20th Edition of People Magazine. The feature is titled, “Coming To America… Asian Pop Stars.” It’s not too detailed, only giving a snippet of info about the artists, but still, it’s pretty cool that they’re in People Magazine. And at least they don’t think all asians look alike. Remember the last time an asian artist was in People Magazine?
Imagine yourself in Rain’s shoes right now: Your first debut in an American film (Speed Racer Failure) is currently the laughing stock of all movies, and the “Engrish” you’ve studied oh-so-hard for completely failed you. Nothing else could go wrong, right? Wrong! Celebrity magazine, People Magazine, tried to shed some light on the Korean singer-turned-actor by adding a interview with the 26-year-old in their latest issue, except the main picture of Rain is not really him. In fact, the picture was of Karl Yune (brother of Rick Yune).
Lov Utada Hikaru!!Best japanese solo artist (women) for me!Poor Rain 😦
South Korea’s top pop star BoA has unveiled a plan to make a concert tour of the United States in June.
In a recent interview with MTV Iggy in the U.S., BoA has selected Miami as her favorite destination for concerts.
BoA was quoted as saying, “I like New York but I really want to go to Miami. Miami looked nice in the movie, like a paradise.”
In mid-March, BoA released her first U.S. album amid high expectations that she will be able to reenact her success story in Japan in the world’s largest album market.
The album contains 11 songs including flagship song “I Did It For Love,” and dance tracks “Energetic,” “Eat You Up,” and “Look Who’s Talking.” The flagship song was written by Sean Garrett, the famous American producer, and its video was directed by Joseph Kahn, who has made promos for Britney Spears, Chris Brown and Eminem and won the Best Video of the Year and Best Direction in the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards.
BoA’s album ranked 127th in the Billboard 200 Album Charts announced on March 26. It was the first time that a Korean singer had entered the Billboard chart.

Woohoo!!!Yay!!Most of my favorites are here!!super yay!!
We are now in a generation when once you have one hit-song-producing idol group in your company, you will survive well in the competition in the Kpop market of this era.
Kpop big players YG Entertainment, SM Entertainment, DSP Entertainment and JYP Entertainment have been up busy with their plans to stay in the competition, and they all each had their representative female/male idol group.
The first company to push a big-scale project in year 2009 is YG. They preparing to debut a female group with the help of the name of their existing group Big Bang, which debuted in 2006. Known as ‘female Big Bang‘ until recently, the group official name is set to be ‘21, To Anyone’.
21, who is set to debut in May, has come together to sing a CM song with group Big Bang. And this has produced great synergy for the debuting group. The song the 2 groups sang together ‘Lollipop’ has risen up various online music chart steadily, standing in same level as other singers like Son DamBi, Seo Taiji, Super Junior etc. Not only so, being the new YG female group in so many years, there is more anticipation for this upcoming group.
As for JYP, who created the ‘So Hot’ craze last year with its girl group WonderGirls, have no other plans to make another representative male group. Because already, they are covering both groups of fans loving ballads and dance songs with their male groups 2AM and 2PM.
Recently into their individual ativities like drama and musical, group SS501’s company DSP Entertainment is also putting its hopes on its girl group KARA who debuted in 2007 and was given the nickname of ‘the 2nd Fin.K.L‘.
And KARA was said to have live up to the name of South Korea’s representative girl group with the title song ‘Honey’ shooting up to the #1 spot on various music programs and charts from their 2nd minialbum released last December. With this, they join the league of girl groups like So Nyeo Shi Dae and WonderGirls.
And lastly, company SM Entertainment which gave birth to many Kpop legends like H.O.T and BoA have its representative girl group So Nyeo Shi Dae dominate the first half of 2009 with the song ‘Gee’.
SM’s own representative group Dong Bang Shin Ki, already with their numerous fanbases established overseas, also said, “Whenever we turn on the TV, we see So Nyeo Shi Dae.”
One of the Kpop producers provided, “We have stepped into an era where you just need one successful singer to be safe in competition in the Kpop market. With a successful male or female group in the company, the new incoming singers get the benefit of attracting more attention to themselves and having more advertisement. And right now, this is the time when idol groups are viewed as important to hit into the market of the music fans in their teens and twenties. And that is why many companies are working hard to push their male or female idol groups.”
With this, there are news that group Jewelry’s company is also in the midst of preparation for the debut of a new male group.
