[News] Tara New Member Dani


Tara unveiled the first of their two members: Dani!

Tara's ninth member Dani is 14 years old and has been growing up in the United States since she was four. She is 167cm and slender and looks like the actress Olivia Hussey and Girls' Generation's Yuri.

Despite her charms of looking like a young girl, she has a strong charisma and variety of skills that are attractive.

When Tara's new album is released on July 7th, Tara will be joined by an 8th member first for their schedules. In December, Dani, the 9th member, will join. Before then, she will meet fans by acting in Tara's new song's music video.

Dani will join Tara in December. The reason she is not joining her older sisters now is because she wants to practice more to make sure she's perfected all around before debuting or else she felt like she'd harm the group.

Tara's 8th member has not been revealed yet, but she is known to be a 19 year old girl with both the looks and skills and boasts a height of 168cm. Tara's 8th member will be revealed at a later date.

Tara are working with popular choreography Jonte Moaning who has choreographed for world stars like Beyonce in the past. He introduced Tara's new album comeback through a teaser trailer online.

Meanwhile, Tara are preparing for a Thailand concert and Japanese tour in June and their fanclub inauguration on July 14th. 

Translation Cr: Nathaniel @ TiaraDiadem.com

I personally think that Tara is like After School now. What I mean is the adding people in and so forth. I don't really mind that at all but also someone who is half the age of Boram too. I wonder how the group would really be like too. Thinking about it right now, most of the songs, not all the members sing at all and they are adding more members in meaning that there some songs that the members won't even be able to sing unless it is the chorus only. And also becoming a nine member group. When you think of nine members you think of Girls' Generation (SNSD) and now that there Tara, who is going to have 9 members, After School, who just add a new member, and YG Entertainment new girl group too, that number is not that special thinking about it but I still have to say SNSD will always be the one with the number nine for me. I mean Tara would be good as how they are right now with seven members because of all the popularity they have. But I have to say it to early to say anything about adding members to this group.

Review:

Love Rain has finally come to an end. That was so sad for me because I was hoping for a lot more than 20 episode. The couple look so cute together:)

I really enjoy watching this drama a lot since I really love the main lead, Yoona. I actually like this pairing a lot because they both are so cute together<3

I really love the drama a lot because you never know what was going to happen at all with the next scene. There was scene where I wish didn't happen and there was scene that was so beautiful that I couldn't even belief it at all. 

I really love the 1970s scenes a lot because it was not the original scenes you could really see at all and I actually love the 1970s. I wish there was more episode of the 1970s scenes and even more episode because I don't want it to end at all.  

My favorite scenes were when they both, in the present day, went to see the snow in the beginning when they first meet. I really love that scene a lot. Also I love all of the kissing scene:) There was a lot of scene where it would fit a kissing scene in but those didn't happen at all. 

I actually enjoy 2 OST song for this drama a lot. I love the OST was SNSD Tiffany "Because It's You" and Jang Geun Suk "Love Rain". I really love those two song a lot. It both fit in the scenes where they put those two songs as background music. 

To conclude I really and absoultey love this drama. It going on my top 10 favorite list now. XD Either way I have recommend this drama to many people and they are also loving it a lot. Also it was directed a director name Yoon Suk Ho and screenwriter Oh Soo Yun who also collaborative with the drama "Autumn In My Heart" and "Winter Sonata". To tell you the truth I really love Autumn In My Heart a lot and I just love Love Rain too:)<3

To tell you I wish this drama would never ended at all because I love it a lot:)<3

30 Day Super Junior Challenge Day 3


Day 3: Your Favourite Subgroup

My favorite subgroup would be SUPER JUNIOR M because of Hangeng. I really miss him in Super Junior. Also with the two other members Henry and Zhou Mi too. They were a good part of joining Super Junior.

30 Day DBSK/JYJ Challenge Day 24




24) A band that reminds you of DBSK

A group/band that remind me of DBSK as a whole would be SHINee. I guess because they are from the same company but also because there is 5 of them, I guess. Also the all have different characters that make them as a group just like DBSK.

Review
The King 2 Heart has finally ended and I have finally finish watching it:) I really enjoy this drama because you never could accepted what is going to happen next at all. The couples were also very cute too:) To tell the truth I like Lee Jae Shin (Lee Yoon Ji) and Eun Shi Kyung (Jo Jung Suk) couple more than the main couple which were Lee Jae Ha (Lee Seungi Ki) and Ha Ji Won (Kim Hang Ah). But I still love the couples very much too:)<3

My favorite parts are when Girls Generation song "The Boy" are play. It super funny and cool how the North Korean guy like Tiffany:)<3 

This movie is so unpredictable at most of the times because sometimes you just never know what coming up next. But I have to say the climax was when the first King was killed. That changes the story. Also at the end Eun Shi Kyung (Jo Jung Suk) die too. That was totally a bumber because I love him and he was such a big part of the movie. 

Either way I totally love the moive and I would recommand the drama for any one who wants to watch it:) & I also love the OST song by Taeyeon called "Missing You Like Crazy."

Rate: 10/10

[Drama Review] Dream High 2


Dream High 2 is one of the drama/movie I really wanted to watch after Dream High 1 came out. I really love Dream High 1 a lot but this one was very different. When it first came out I started to watch the drama until the 3 episode because it was really boring. After a few weeks that the drama came out with the other episode I went back to watch it. It really was amazing and not so boring. Everything started to change. I love all the characters in the drama. But there was some point where I was kind of went OMG and WTF! Lmao. Sorry:)<3 Either way I did love this drama a lot and I hope for Dream High 3.

This drama introduces me to JJ Project (Jr. & JB) the rookie group of JYP and also Aliee, rookie solo artist. I really love both of them a lot. Ailee have an amazing voice that no one would have at all. Along with that After School Kahi and former member After School Soyoung meets again in this drama. It been quite a while since Soyoung left After School in 2009 but it was great for them to be in the same drama and acting. 

Also it was a great start for After School Kahi, Ailee, Sistar Hyorin, JJ Project Jr. and JB, 2AM Jinwoon along with Yeon Joo and Ji Soo because Dream High 2 is the start of their acting debut. 

There was also surprising cameo of others wonderful artists too:) There was of course Yoon Hee Seok, who is the composer Shin Jae In. Then there was Kim Soo Hyun, who played the top star Song Sam Dong in Dream High 1. It was great because they were trying to do an acting scene where Kim Soo Hyun and Suzy(in Dream High 1) kiss when they were saying goodbye. It was great to seen that scene where Jiyeon and Kim Soo Hyun try to act it out. Then IU who play Kim Pil Suk in Dream High 1 make a cameo where she gave her signature to Kang Sora (Shin Hae Sung). It was great to see IU in the drama too. Then Band Toxic made a cameo too in EP1. Then the idol group MYNAME made a cameo in EP2. Later after so many episode Wonder Girls Yeeun made a cameo in EP 9. She play herself in the role singing the OST song  that she wrote called "Hello To Myself" which in the story Kang Sora character wrote the song. Later Suzy with her group Miss A made a cameo to support the Super Idols. It was great to finally see Suzy but I was disappoint because she appears as herself not as her character in Dream High 1. If she did appear as the character in Dream High 1 it would make it way better:) I was disappoint that 2PM Taecyeon and Wooyoung didn't make a cameo because I was really hoping for them to make a cameo along with TARA Eunjung too. I really did hope to see them in the drama again.

The OST songs were all great. I really love the new version of Dream High. I still like the first version better but this one sounds great too. Hello To Myself was also a great song too. Class B was the song that really caught the whole attention and it is amazing too:)

Rate: 8.5/10

[Drama Review] Fashion King


Fashion King, from beginning to ending was not really a drama I would re-watch over and over again. At some point I did think what is the main reason of this movie at all. I love the movie scenes that they have in New York. The scenes was really beautiful and nice but the drama itself was not that great at all. I love the actors and actresses a lot but not such a great story line itself. To tell the truth I started to watch this movie because of SNSD Yuri is in it, over all there was something that I didn't like about each of there characters at all. I love all of the fashion(clothes, jewelry etc.) in it. There was a lot of the time where I go WTF are they wearing in the movie scenes. I don't like the ending at all. The ending over all is probably the baddest and worst ending of all movies I have watch:). I am sorry:)

Rate: 5/10

APINK Hush


APINK back with a new song:) HUSH!:)
To tell the truth, I didn't get a great appeal to this song at first but after listening to it quiet sometimes I started to really like the song:) The dance was really great but I couldn't learn the dance movements at all because they dance was so great. I really didn't have anything bad to say about it at all. 
APINK did change the concepts form being innocent and sweet to something mature and I really did like to see something change because they did reach there 1 year anniversary. 
I know it been quiet sometimes since they made there comeback but I just didn't have time to post this up so I finally did it now. If you haven't listen to there 1st year anniversary song you should listen to it:) here.
Thanks:)


G.NA Comeback 2HOT


Solo artist, G.NA, make a comeback with 2HOT as her newest title song of her album. You can check out the song and music video above. I really don't have an opinion on the song just yet because it so new and most of the time it takes time for me to like a song but the song it some what catching I guess. I really didn't like the dance as much at all. I somewhat like and dislike the music video. There was some point where I just didn't like it. Over all, G.NA did make a so call good comeback but I don't think it was her best at all:) But I still love G.NA:)<3

SNSD Subgroup & Twinkle:)

SNSD finally getting a subgroup after 5 years in the music industry.<3
It consist of Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun:)
It seem like their vocal lines:)
Of course, It seem a little late for this post because they been out for a while.
I just totally forgot to post it up for a while now that all.
<3


I really do like the group a lot<3
I think the vocals to the song is very strong:)<3

If you haven't listen to the songs in the mini album you should do so:)<3

Twinkle

Baby Steps

Library

Hello Goodbye

Love Sick

OMG

Checkmate


Out of the album I really love the title song, Twinkle, of course, but I also love the song Library the most too along with Baby Steps. I am really hoping for the next sub group of SNSD. One group I really hope for was to become a subgroup was Jessica, Tiffany, and Seohyun because they have been an unoffical group when they sing the songs: Oppa Nappa (Bad Oppa) and Mabinogi (It's Fantastic) back in 2008(if i am correct).

Oppa Nappa

Mabinogi (It's Fantastic)
