Decent song. Most of the participating pop groups show courtesy by sending their best vocalists, thus we are seeing some of the best young Korean idols here.
Korean pop star Rain think that it’s a cool to name his new boyband as MBLAQ, which means Music Boys Live in Absolute Quality… which must be the weirdest group name I’ve ever heard.
The acronym doesn’t sound as bad, but it’s absolutely bizarre when they tried to justify what it means. Perhaps I’m too old to understand what the younger generations are thinking; the teenage fangirls might think that it’s a wonderfully cool name. (seriously?)
The boys are going to be popular as long as their performance aren’t too bad; K-pop world is dominated by pop groups in the past couple of years, and there’s room for a few more good looking guys or girls.
And having a famous boss like Rain certainly helps.
