Korean music video for Up & Down by female pop group EXID. The song didn’t get much attention when it was released in August but is trending in recent weeks thanks to a fancam (second video, by Pharkil) which gone viral online.
Short promotion video for Japanese pop singer Kaela Kimura’s latest single, Today Is A New Day. The song will be included in her upcoming album, Mieta.
Malay music video for Gemilang (means Glory), a song by Jaclyn Victor, first performed a decade ago when she was crowned the first Malaysian Idol in 2004.
Music video for Heaven On The Beach by long running Japanese pop rock band Southern All Stars. The MV features cameo appearances of a host of Japanese celebrities, including Natsumi Abe, Kaori Iida, Yuko Nakazawa, members of AKB48, Tamio Okuda, Guts Ishimatsu, Kaela Kimura, Kazuyoshi Saito, Dreams Come True, Ken Hirai, Gen Hoshino, Keiko Masuda and Kazuya Yoshii.
Korean music video for Good Luck by pop group Beast, title track of their sixth mini album which was released in June 2014. Haven’t paid much attention to K-pop lately, this song caught my attention though, love the beat; and I like the fact that most songs are co-written by one of its members.
It’s good to see a K-pop group that actually makes music. Don’t get me wrong, appearance is a huge part of K-pop music culture, often more important than talent, and I’m hooked with that too. Just that it’s refreshing to see some real “artists” in the industry, which is unfortunately rare/unappreciated in K-pop.
