Day 28: Your favorite cover of an American song by a k-pop artist
CNBlue’s cover of Jason Mraz’s “Geek In The Pink” is at the top of my list. And Yonghwa’s English is easy on the ears. Can’t say the same for Jonghyun though… Nonetheless, this entire thing is daebak.
Day 26: Your favorite cover of a k-pop song by another k-pop artist
Jang Jae In & Kim Ji Soo covered Seo In Young’s “Cinderella” during the final auditions for Superstar K2. I wasn’t familiar with the original song but I fell in love with what they did with it. So then I looked for the original version and, sorry to say, this cover is 100 times better than the original. Love their voices!
Day 25: Your favorite k-pop music video
There’s a whole lot of awesome videos out there but I had to go with this one, Big Bang’s Haru Haru. The narrative, the aesthetics and just the overall treatment to the video was impressive. Also, Park Minyoung is an amazing actress.
Day 22: Your favorite picture of your favorite k-pop group
This picture is just cute. They’re all so gorgeous in it. Also, it reminds us that even though they’re huge stars now, they’re still the same quirky girls they were pre-debut.
Day 21: Your favorite picture of your girl k-pop bias
CL is gorgeous no matter what she does. Whether it’s a quirky cute pose or a swag-filled sexy look, she can pull it off easily. But this photo, or any photo from the Lonely promo, is just pretty. I love the clothes, I love the updo… CL jeil jal naga.
Day 19: Your favorite interview of a k-pop idol or group
The MTV EMA red carpet interview with Big Bang. This was just such a proud and shining moment. At this point, they didn’t even win yet… But just seeing them there on the red carpet at Belfast was just surreal.
