Gender Inversion in Kpop
I wouldn’t say I’m a fan of Beast, T-ara, or the song “Yayaya” (even though I find it ridiculously addictive), but I found this performance not only so cute that I have probably contracted diabetes,but an interesting look into the possible gender inversions in kpop.

As YongSeo fans may know, We Got Married’s pseudo-couple Yonghwa of CNBLUE and Seohyun of SNSD have been hard at work on their latest WGM mission to create a UCC ‘banmal song (반말송)’ — in other words, a casual tune themed by informal lyrics.
As we earlier reported, the latest episode reveals Seohyun struggling with the lyrics then impressing Yonghwa with her final product. After teasing fans with a sneak peek at the track yesterday, the Sweet Potato couple’s UCC project has been unveiled on Youtube, simply titled, “Banmal Song”.

Today South Korean boy band “SHINee” held their first concert in Japan at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium in Tokyo and have announced that they are going to make their official Japanese debut under “EMI Music Japan” in March 2011.
In 2008 they were awarded Rookie of the Year in South Korea. Since then their popularity has kept on growing and now they are going to follow their fellow idol groups to Japan to expand their fandom even further.
Even before their debut they are already a big number in Japan. Within one month more than 100,000 people applied for a ticket for their performance today. In the end, 24,000 lucky people were able to see the five members of SHINee today. They performed two shows, which adds up to about 5 hours and 60 songs. There is no doubt that this must have pleased their Japanese fans.
Member Jonghyun still wasn’t able to fully perform with the others due to an injury on his left foot. “I’m sad that I can’t perform as much as I want, but at least I’m able to stay on stage with the others,” he said in tears.

On the Christmas special of KBS’ Gag Concert, many celebrities were present such as T-ara, SECRET, Norazo, and Song Joong Ki. They performed skits with the comedians, bringing lots of laughter to the audience.
Wang Biho’s weekly insults to celebrity guests receive much attention, and this time it happened to be girl group T-ara. With an addition of a new member and a recent comeback, the comedian unloaded.
He stated, “Why does the audience have no reaction for them? I heard that the group has a new member and that she is a twin of one of the members of Co-Ed. Do you guys have no interest? They are in the same company!”
He then went on to pick on their comeback songs, stating, “You guys released new songs, but whats with the lyrics…? Your songs are starting to sound the same!”

Brown Eyed Girls‘ Narsha received a confession from a high school student.
On the December 26th episode of the SBS variety show ‘Heroes‘, the members prepared a special class for the high school seniors who will become adults soon. The members were counseling the students when a male student picked out Narsha as his counsellor.
The student used some corny pick up lines, saying, “I have a woman I like. She is like an oasis in a desert“. He then called out Narsha’s real name, saying, “Hyo Jin noona“, and turned his counseling session into a love confession to Narsha.
The student continued, “I’ll return from the army, so please wait for me“. Narsha asked when exactly he would return from the military. The student answered he would come back around 2013, to which Narsha replied, “Then should I make a decision?”
Narsha warmly replied, “Let’s meet in 2013!“, and the student could not hide the joy in his expression.

T.O.P: This was the secret project.
T.O.P: If we try to squeeze out scenes from the shoot, it’ll look too obvious. We wanted to have cameras everywhere so we could film ourselves having fun… but not one single person has arrived.
GD: I hope you can have fun with us, without being embarrassed.
T.O.P: What’s with the video letter all of a sudden! *laughs*
GD: Because they’re not coming… I’m just getting a bit worried….
GD: Taeyang’s coming, Yong Bae’s coming, Seung Ri’s coming, and V.I’s coming.
T.O.P: Little Seung Hyun is coming too.
GD: Five people are coming.
GD: To be honest I didn’t think so many people would be curious of us, and I’ve to a point where I really want to show something new. Just in case they won’t recognize me next time when we go to the basics, I went for the crisp and clean look.
T.O.P: Our KUSH hyung came too.
KUSH: I’m here.
T.O.P: Since it’s a party where we’re all enjoying it together, the response is really good and quite warm. We’ll work hard to turn the tables around once we come back again as Big Bang. Have fun!
