Battle of the Girl Groups: Bella vs Lady Collection

So there’s two trio’s who have been pretty quiet since the release of their debut EP’s;Lady collection being the senior group. Both groups had hit debut tracks : lc with peeking melancholy and Bella with their cover of ‘don’t let go’. After the release of said tracks, they’ve been pushed out of the spotlight. As a fan of both groups it’s hard to see some really talented ladies get kicked to the back of peoples mind while a new group debuts every week.

Battle of the rappers: Gil Me v. E.via

A lot of idol groups have four or five main singers, then a “rapper”. The reason I have rapper in quotations is because those so-called rappers aren’t really rappers at all. Most of them are doing this chant-talking thing that comes off as annoying and embarrassing. On top of that female rappers are like a joke in Korea. They can’t have a real rap about something unless they are thrown in skimpy clothes, doing some distasteful dance for a bunch of old guys that are old enough to be their dads.

Battle of the Bands: BRIGHT vs. Tenjochiki

I think anyone who reads the reviews on this site know that I (Arie Jai) am a huge fangirl of both BRIGHT and Tenjochiki/CSJH The Grace. They have amazing voices,can harmonize and dance well, are terribly under rated and a lot of people compare them frequently on each others videos.

The first song I heard from The Grace was their Korean single, Dancer In The Rain and the first Japanese song A Little Bit of Good a piano based ballad. I listened to different clips of them singing a capella medleys and I was blown away – I had never heard anything like that from a pop group. The first BRIGHT song I heard was ‘Shining Butterfly‘ that I was led to by watching Tenjochiki a-nation videos. I didn’t really care for Shining Butterfly, but I liked their sound so I looked them up  and found their song Brightest Star. I listened to that song for about 2 months straight because it was just so catchy. After listening to them for about a year, I found myself always comparing them so I decided to give an in depth breakdown of both groups. Continue reading Battle of the Bands: BRIGHT vs. Tenjochiki
