[Breaking News] CCM announces Hwayoung will leave T-ara

T-ara‘s parent company Core Contents Media announced today that one of its members, Hwayoung, will be leaving the group.
CCM’s CEO, Kim Kwang Soo, announced the departure in a press release written by the president himself. “In deference to the complaints by T-ara’s staff of 19 people (5 stylists, 7 hair & makeup, 5 on-site managers, 2 team managers), Hwayoung’s contract as an artist will be voided effective immediately with no conditions.”
Kim Kwang Soo denied any correlation with the recent controversy that erupted following tweets from the T-ara members that were interpreted by many as one-sided bullying against Hwayoung. “We wish to impress upon the fact that this has nothing to do with the ‘bullying’ reports surrounding T-ara,” CCM said. “Although the staff of Core Contents Media stayed up into early morning discussing with the T-ara members who all wanted to stay with Hwayoung, we apologize in saying that we could not forsake the arguments of the staff members.”
“We deeply apologize for the many incidents which made everyone who loved T-ara nervous and worried, and we have nothing but sadness to convey such an unsettling incident on their third anniverary. We also apologize again to the T-ara members and wish Hwayoung all the best as a powerful rapper,” CCM continued since Hwayoung has great potential as a rapper we decided to end her contract without conditions and we believe that she will grow into the future as a free artist.”
Hwayoung was with T-ara for 20 months, leaving original members Boram, Qri, Eunjung, Soyeon, Hyomin, and Jiyeon, as well as new member Ahreum.

LTA KPOP EP 14 Top 15 Favorite Debut Song

When you think to the beginning of a KPOP idols, you think of their debut days where they were rookie in the entertainment world. Debut songs are songs that really catch my attention if I like them at first or not. There was of course, some debut songs that aren't so great but there was of course some that everyone love.  Now in days, there are some idol group that I don't know or like or never heard of before, but there is of course their other hit songs that I do listen to, but there debut song made not be something that caught my attention at all, when that group debuted. Some group debut songs may be a hit while others may not so be at all. But I am going to be telling you my top 15 favorite debut songs of all, since I started to become a kpop lover.

15.Tara - Lies
This song was a great start for Tara. I didn't like the fact that Qri didn't get any lines at all and also Eunjung only got some lines. Hyomin, on the other hand got a lot of lines, and I wished that they would of make it fair enough for the members.

14. G.NA - Ill Back Off So You Would Have A Better Life
This song caught my attention when I first heard of it, because I guess it was something so emotional that I like it. Also, this was a great start for G.NA. Also as a solo artist this song was a lot harder too. I love the fact that it did feature BEAST Junhyung in the song too.

13. Juniel - Illa Illa
I actually love this song a lot after listening to it like million of times, I guess. Such a great artist, and also love the fact that she plays the guitar too with this song.

12. F(x) - La Cha Ta
This song didn't catch my attention other than the chorus, which was somewhat catchy to me. But after hearing it for a while, it turns out I did love this song.

11. Ailee - Heaven
Such a great song for Ailee, as a solo artist and a rookie. This shows her strong vocals. I have actually love Ailee since watching Dream High 2, and went to look for her on youtube and found amazing videos of her covers. I love her cover of Halo a lot and found out that she debuted as a singer.

10. 4Minute - Hot Issue
This song was catchy to me, I actually started to listen to it after hearing it the first time. 

9. SISTAR - Push Push
Push Push Baby~ This was catchy for me when the song started at the beginning, at first I happen to not like it at all, but after hearing it for a while, I did like it a lot. Nothing bad about this at all.

8. Boyfriend - Boyfriend
This is such a cute song. I love it when I heard of it. This song actually represent who they are, funny right. But I do love this song a lot.

7. After School - Ah!
When I saw this group, I though of the Pussy Cat Doll. I love this group a lot since then, but I love their debut song, because it was so strong. 

6. 2PM - 10 Points Out Of 10
This song was super catchy and easy to follow a long with. Nothing bad at all.

5. SHINee - Replay
I actually of this song a lot. The beat was something that caught my attention to this group and song.

4. Miss A - Good Girl Bad Girl
This song was a song that I didn't like at all at first. I didn't like the group nor the song at all too. But as I sometime to listen to see the group more, I started to love and like this group a lot. 

3. EXID - Whoz That Girl
This group was a group that I have never heard of before, until I was watching a weekly top charts video on youtube and got to listen to the chours of this song. I love the song a lot. It have such strong vocals and strong rapping skills too. I think that was a really good start for this rookie group.

2. APink - I Don't Know
I actually love this song a lot when I heard of it. This actually make me think, oh they could become the next SNSD, if so. This group was a group that I love since their debut.

1. SNSD - Into The New World
I love this song a lot. One of the best songs from SNSD. This is the song that started SNSD. It show their innocent years which I miss a lot. This song is catchy starting from the beginning of the songs already. The chorus is super catchy too and when you think about it, it is a song you just want to get up and dance too. 

I hope you enjoy it, sorry if I keep on repeating myself in each little thing. Also I love all of these idol group too. There was a lot of debut song that I really like too like, Wonder Girls - Irony, CNBlue - Loner etc. I hope you would tell me your favorite debut songs. Thanks.<3

[Drama Review] Big

18-year-old Kang Gyung-Joon's (Shin Won-Ho) spirit suddenly finds itself in the body of 30-year-old Seo Yoon Jae (Gong Yoo) . Seo-Yon-Jae is a successful doctor and engaged to high school teacher Gil Da-Ran (Lee Min-Jung). Gil Da-Ran just so happens to be the teacher of 18-year old Kang Gyung-Joon. More problems ensue when 30-year-old Seo Yoon Jae falls in love with another woman (Bae Suzy).
Da-Ran (Lee Min-Jung), currently preparing to take for her teacher's exam, goes to a wedding hall to deliver a bouquet. When she hands over the bouquet Da-Ran discovers the bride is a friend of hers. Da-Ran also makes the uncomfortable realization that she wasn't invited to her friend's wedding. She stays at the wedding and gives money to the couple as a wedding gift. Da-Ran then eats lunch at the wedding alone. She then receives a phone call that the bouquet was delivered to the wrong bride and she needs to get it back. Da-Ran attempts to catch the bouquet at the end of the wedding, but bumps into a man named Yoon-Jae (Gong Yoo). Due to the bump, Da-Ran falls down the stairs and is hospitalized. As fate has it, her doctor at the hospital is Yoon-Jae, the man she bumped into at the wedding. Their relationship develops into a romantic relationship and one month later they plan to get married.
Now, Da-Ran works as a temporary teacher at a high school, while preparing for her exam to become a teacher. When she goes to work on the bus, she listens to her own story that she wrote in to the radio station. Da-Ran gets off the bus and a young man Gyung-Joon (Shin Won-Ho) gets off at the same bus stop. Da-Ran mistakenly believes the young man likes her. It turns out that Da-Ran took his umbrella on the bus and Gyung-Joon is a student at the high school where she works. High school student Gyung-Joon lived in the United States with his mother, but after his mother died came back to South Korea.
Da-Ran's wedding approaches and she is excited, but Yoon-Jae acts differently. Yoon-Jae seems to be avoiding Da-Ran. On the day they are to look for a new home, Yoon-Jae calls that he can't make it and Da-Ran bursts into tears. She asks if Yoon-Jae really loves her or just feels responsible for her and then hangs up. She doesn't know what to do. Then, her student Gyung-Joon sees her and takes her on a ride on his motorcycle. They go out to a lake, outside of Seoul. While looking at the water, Yoon-Jae calls Da-Ran and tells her that he will give her the answer to her question. Meanwhile, Gyung-Joon gets back on his motorcycle and leaves.
Yoon-Jae drives out to meet Da-Ran by the lake. Meanwhile, Gyung-Joon is leaving the area on his motorcycle. As the two approach each other, an accident occurs in front of them. They both try to avoid the car crash and both drive into the water.
As Yoon-Jae's car sinks deeper into the water, he manages to get out of the car, but sees high school student Gyung-Joon sinking past him. Yoon-Jae grabs him and goes back up to the surface.
At the hospital, Yoon-Jae is declared dead. Da-Ran rushes to the hospital and cries in front of the hospital mortuary. Then, Yoon-Jae suddenly wakes up. When he sees himself in the mirror he is shocked. He has Yoon-Jae's body, but his mind is that of high school student Gyung-Joon. He walks out of the mortuary and sees Da-Ran crying in the hallway. Da-Ran is so happy to see Yoon-Jae alive, but he insists that he is Gyung-Joon. Gyung-Joon then wonders where his body is and finds that his body is unconscious and in the hospital. Gyung-Joon starts to panic and walks out of the hospital.
Da-Ran finds out Gyung-Joon's address and goes there. She finds Yoon-Jae's body laying down in the high school student's bed. She realizes that Gyun-Joon's mind is indeed in the body of her fiance Yoon-Jae.

This drama was very interesting when I first saw it. It is one of those drama where you have to watch. I really do like the story line a lot. That is one thing that caught my attention when I first saw this movie. To tell the truth I was actually planning not to watch this at all but  since my friend recommend this to me, I decide to watch with them. There was a lot of things that I personally didn't like about the characters in the movie or how they should of change that scene to make it better etc. 

It was wonderful that they got to know each other in the beginning before that happen of course, but also how the younger guy is being such a kid was kind of annoy. I of course love this English, but after a while it get annoy to me. The main girl was okay, I didn't like her character at first then I start to like her character and then at last, I guess I didn't at all. But I do like MaRi (Suzy) character.   I like her character because I guess it was unique but I did got annoy by her character after a while.  Most of the character I didn't love as much as I wish I could of.

There fashion in the movie was okay, not so bad on some character. Also I love MaRi (Suzy) headbands that she use. I notice they where so cute and cool. Weird, but I do love wearing headbands a lot too. I think the guy fashion could of been better but I do love both the girls fashion a lot. 

The beginning was really interesting already. It was to the point where I guess just make me want to see more. The flow of the movie was really nice too. Once it got into the middle, it was super interesting because you didn't really know what was going to come after that. It like you already wanted to picture the next  episode in your head already. Then it got closer to the end is when I started to didn't like the story at all. I wish it was a different ending because of course, they got together at the end but I really wanted the couple to go back together with whom they were with at first. That was my wish. I didn't like the ending at all. It was such a good story and drama but the ending kills it.  I have to say that the ending are the thing for me. Most of the time, if the ending is really bad or worst or if I don't like it, I wouldn't even watch it, if all the episode were loaded already, but since this was an airing drama when I was watching, I finish the drama. 

I finish the drama on Tuesday, July 24, 2012. 

Over-All Rate: 8.5/10
