Ladies Code talks about their similar concept to the Wonder Girls



Article: [Interview] Ladies Code "We resemble the Wonder Girls?"

Source: Naver

"We used standing mics to better give the eighties feel to our concept. Maybe because the mics are round but people compared us a lot to the Wonder Girls seniors. For us, it's an honor, but we think that Ladies Code has our own distinctive clor."

1. [+870, -45] This concept definitely copied 'Nobody'

2. [+462, -45] They have vocal talent and their digital ranking isn't too bad considering their level of public recognition. As long as they pick up a good song, they have the potential to do better.

3. [+444, -33] I thought that it was like the Wonder Girls' concept, but what I mean by that is that their concepts resemble them, not necessarily accusing them of copying them.

4. [+351, -21] I thought they could've done better with 'Pretty Pretty'... but suddenly...

5. [+265, -20] I'm a 'Birth of a Great Star' fan so I'm supporting Ri Se but I'd say the group succeeded for rookies... The problem is that they have to release a hit song at least once a year in order to be remembered amidst the competition. They should come up with a more public friendly song next time.

6. [+78, -5] It's not just the mics that are similar but the dance and the concept.

7. [+69 ,-10] The dance, clothes, song, and mic are a total copy of the Wonder Girls. The song is a blatant rip off, I'm actually embarrassed for them.

8. [+58, -9] Hmm.. I went to check it out and the dance style as well as the song is a rip off of the Wonder Girls ㅋㅋㅋ

  1. i love Ladies Code and the song is good, but yeah the concept is quite similar to WG.

  2. Imo they have potential, but this concept was clearly similar, didn't do them any favors with the public

  6. i feel like their company is pushing so hard for them to become the next wonder girls. first with pretty pretty, which was like a cuter version of so hot, and had the brightness of tell me, and now so wonderful with the mics…and even some parts are similar to nobody.


    ladies code has their own distinctive colour…why not just let them do their one thing like bad girl.

    ReplyDelete
  7. As a Wonderful...I see the resemblance but to label it a "blatant copy" is a bit far. I assume they drew inspiration from that "retro feel"....just cause WG started the "retro trend" and did it well I may add doesn't mean they own to copyrights to it. Love WG, love Ladies' Code...and they're right about the comeback....Ladies' Code need not wait so long inbetween comebacks or else they'll be lost in the sea of idols debuting/coming back.

  8. The dance only seemed so similar to Nobody is because of the mics. There's only so much you can do to a choreography with mics, so it'll end up looking like how Wonder Girls did with Nobody so I wouldn't say it's a copy. If they did this concept, dance, and song without the mics, they probably won't get any accusations of copying Wonder Girls. The mics throw everything off because the Wonder Girls did it once even though they don't really own the mic concept.

    ReplyDelete
  9. ladies code is so boring to me they're probably the most unoriginal group i've ever seen. Yeah, they're good singers, but nothing about them is special imo.

    ReplyDelete
  10. their song 'bad girls/girl' (idk) is awesome, I've heard it last year, it's a great song but this time it's a bit mehh...

    ReplyDelete
  11. not that only wonder girls can do this kind of concept but they are so gunning to fill wonder girl's empty position. pretty pretty = so hot, wonderful = nobody.

    ReplyDelete
  12. pretty pretty and so wonderful definitely had a lot of wonder girls feel in them.


    The choreography for so wonderful is undeniably alike. Not just because of the mics.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Rather than saying they outright copied WG, I think it's better to say that they were inspired by the same music era. It's not like the retro concepts were completely original.

    ReplyDelete
  14. even pretty pretty was kinda like "Tell me" imo they are inspered by WG
    there is a fact they are WG fans and close to Sunye

    ReplyDelete
  15. pretty pretty was more like Tell me

    ReplyDelete
  16. but there's different ways to do retro concepts. Like Secret did retro for a long time but there was little similarities to Wonder Girls. T-ara did retro and it wasn't really similar to Secret or Wonder Girls. You can have the same concept and still be original/unique about it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like the song & concept. The choreography look like WG's 'Nobody' mix with 'Tell Me'

    ReplyDelete
  18. Actually I think it's not just the mics, but also the dance. I mean, I saw a gifset today and they just do the same dance steps as WG. There are plenty of possible dance steps to do so yeah. well even before this song they gave the WG feel. and they debut right at the good moment when WG went inactive lol. I guess with the number of members, similar concepts and the fact that 2-3 of them also look alike to WG members, it's obvious that the comparisons get bigger. However I wish them good luck to have their own hit song and success. but I don't think I'll be their fan even though I was WG fan.

    ReplyDelete
  19. So wonder girls copied the supremes, martha and the vandellas? Relax it's an old retro concept theirs not much else to do with it

  22. gonna start watching this drama soon when i have the time. looks really promising

  23. it could happen but they would need to conceal their ethnicity first. I remember when like a g6 became popular but most of the general public had no idea the group singing it was Asian.

    To be honest, Ailee's talents are a dime a dozen in America. Might be a controversial statement but her voice isn't very unique nor can she do anything with her voice that is hard to find in the saturated music industry in the US. That's why she would have to stand out with a creative, catchy song.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I cringe just thinking about g dragon performing a song on American t.v. He's going to get eaten alive.

    Especially if its this g dragon. lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. Only CL really. I'm sure YG isn't going to risk destroying Bigbang like he destroyed Se7en. All his interviews only talked about girl group appeal in the US.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ailee's talented but she's derivative of other good vocalists. There's a reason why her company promotes her as 'the korean beyonce'. she doesn't have her own identity yet. she would've gotten lost in the american market regardless of her race.

  28. sad ending? nooooo, that's not good for my health dominjun ssi ><

  29. People listening to Kpop in Europe is a big minority (idk if bigger than in America, i doubt) and the amount of stereotypes people have against Asians is probably the same as in America. They will probably face the same struggle when trying to break through both market.
    Kpop might appears more popular in Europe because fans want to see their faves and concerts are really rare and most of the time it's only one date per country but it's really not that popular.

  30. master's sun was pretty enjoyable tho i couldn't finish it, but maybe i start watching star in the wrong mood thus i didn't get the hype lol

    the only dramas i follow and finish (online) are school 2013 & IHYV haha, all of them are lee jongsuk's drama,

    ReplyDelete
  31. It's so sad that Like a G6 was their breakthrough song though...they have way better songs T-T

  32. Europe is not a safe land either.

  33. thats BULLSHIT We Black People thought the Same thing so to my ASIAN Brothers and Sisters FIGHTING!!!!!! you can do it let no one tell you you cant because to put it simply that is BULLSHIT... people have to understand YG is a Realist but at the same time he has a VISION yall to near sided yall cant see as far as him YG is ready to move mountains and I believe in him I think he is the One to do it

    ReplyDelete
  34. I wonder if they'll add a roller coaster and merry-go-round. Maybe one of those huge ferris wheels too.

  35. I LOVE Taeyang and he is totally the reason I'm even into kpop and I think that goes for many other international kpop fans, but I'm pissed that YG is trying so hard to change the music that suits YB best. Taeyang singing that R&B sexy as f$*k type music I think will be hot over here and that's the music he loves according to his interviews. Apparently he self composed like 20+ songs like that but YG isn't haven't it. If YG is likely to have any success in America I agree it's likely to be with Taeyang but he should let him do that Miguel type music because it suits his voice best.

    ReplyDelete
  36. HAHAHAH what. Suburban white teenagers are NOT the largest consumers of hip hop. And by hip hop i don't mean none of that hybrid pop stuff Macklemooo does. Also Eminem. None of the token white boys rapping. I know they sell the most but the reason they do is bc they are white and it makes white kids feel somehow validated and part of the hip hop culture. (btw im not saying they're bad but that's why they sell more) Macklemoo and M&M are not the faces of hip hop though only the mainstream top40 portion of hip hop and their fans are most definitely NOT the core hip hop fans. I find quite a lot of them will only listen to them and not really explore other hip hop artists.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Did he get shit from the hiphop community? I thought Macklemore apologized to Lamar cause' he thought Lamar should've won...not because the hiphop community complained...(if anyone that complained it was the viewers - but hey, Macklemore owned up to it and said that him being white probably attributed to the fact that he won the grammy awards).

    However, afterwards, he got backlash for it (for apologizing)...some hip hop artists (ahem Drake ahem) thought the move was cheap and not genuine.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Not entirely, but it would at least stand a better chance than North America

    ReplyDelete
  39. Personally I think blond Taeyang is looking extra fine lately and more polished up, but when it comes to the music I agree with you. Plus it's the type of music Taeyang wants to do. I imagine him singing like Miguel's adorn or Drake we're going home and Taeyang will slay with that genre.

  40. That's why try in the USA isn't a bad idea. At least the can some recognition in US activities.

  42. Groups aren't really that big in America. Sure you can name a few but compared to kpop, it's nothing. Even when those groups did get famous, america mostly favored over one.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Actually, I think that's not far off. I checked out website for "The Source", and it's a high-end mall. Reading between the lines, they are targeting the Asian community in So Cal. (The developers made their name creating a big Mexico themed shopping center in LA.) My guess is that the YG thing is going to be a themed store, with a recording studio attached, and maybe YG is investing in the overall project.

    ReplyDelete
  44. hes a sadist! xD if this had a sad ending id curse like a sailor for ages and ages... like #6, now everytime i read his interviews i would think about min joon's studio interviews :))

    ReplyDelete
  45. tbh, i think 3days is the winner. many of yoochun's viewers (aka this drama) are teens to young adult who mostly watch from smartphone, ipad, or online. like the university students who don't have TV in their dorm, they'll watch it through computer.
    the internet user ranking for the 2nd ep is 24% (first ep reach 28% if i'm not wrong) compared to IG 17% and CSL 15%.
    while the rating from chinese streaming site reached 31%.
    so even if there's a dip in TV rating, it's still left out big GAP in internet rating, and we all know SK known as a country with the fastest internet connection, so its no weird thing if viewer shifted in using smartphone etc. to watch drama. while AGB nielsen only counting from the TV.
    the advertisement slot in the ep 1&2 are sold out too, if it has no potential, i doubt this will happen.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Keep K-pop in Korea. Otherwise, it'll just be mainstream pop music or wannabe hip hop.

    ReplyDelete
  47. ehhhh 4 yrs ago i would agree. but not now. snapbacks and chains are now sought after fashion accessories. white pop stars twerk badly on TV and feel no shame. people listen to hip hop artists ironically. every pop star wants a rap verse. people turn up at functions and talk about ratchet this ratchet that. hip hop culture is being mass marketed... it is now part of mainstream pop culture more than it ever was.

    ReplyDelete
  48. You're right, most singers are soloists in America/Canada market.

    1D is practically the only relevant (pop-music) boy band in America...boy bands and girl groups were so 90s...(sadly)...the last relevant girl group I remember is PCD...

    ReplyDelete
  49. Most people in the US can't speak a second language unless it's a part of their cultural background. I'm Hispanic, so I learned Spanish from my family, but I also have plenty of friends who were also born to Hispanic families that never bothered learning it. They're now incapable of communicating with their extended families. Most states don't enforce learning a second language, because people assume that English is the most important language in the world and it's everyone else's responsibility to learn it. It's such an ignorant way of thinking though. I envy countries that are multilingual.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I actually think this is an interesting idea. Whether it will be successful or not, I can really see potential for success for certain artists (I'm thinking Taeyang and CL especially). IMO, if YG can snag some collabs with well-known, well-respected artists in the US, there's a possibility for success despite the fact that YG's artists are Asian. And honestly, I feel like the quality of the songs is more important to US listeners than anything else. YG makes the most "American" style Kpop music and as an American I feel that many of the songs would be quite popular in the US if they were sung in English and/or sung by a non-Asian. But to really snag the US market they'd have to differentiate themselves somehow so they don't come off as imitators.

    ReplyDelete
  51. It probably would stand a better chance but even then, they'd only be hitting their niche market. *shrugs*

    Best thing to do is to stick to the Asian market.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I agree with this. Just about every culture has been disrespected or manipulated at some point by fashion and the latest trends. Not even hip hop is sacred anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  53. This is just YG refusing to let any of his artists debut under any other company lol but I can't imagine a foreign record label ever doing well over here since we have some of the best labels in world, but I think a few individual YG artists could. Imo the ones with the most potential are CL & Taeyang. That is rapper CL & R&B Taeyang if I'm completely honest. Taeyang coming in as a rapper would be difficult because the market is heavily saturated with many other male hip hop rappers who are of the best, but Taeyang as a singer has a much better chance. CL as a rapper is very rare for an Asian female so I think she would stand out for that reason. It could work very well for her as long as she writes her own lyrics and it's not cheesy.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm sure this will end well.

  55. YG's vision destroyed Se7en. The dating scandal was just a later excuse. He lost most of his fans with his failure in America.

  60. i think Taeyang, TOP and CL will debut first in US, I'll sure CL is the first to debut in US. and If 2NE1 debut in US i feel more ppl can say The Next Spice Girls

    ReplyDelete
  61. 5. [+13, -5] I'm not too familiar with America's entertainment culture but could Asian male kids actually be successful there? Especially in hip hop...?


    lol not gonna work. Asians debuting with a hip hop concept would just come off as pathetic and tryhard. They'd be called wannabes. Look at Taeyang's style.
    I understand nothing about hip hop culture and all the stuff people are commenting but it's not hard at all to see it's not gonna work out in America. Yg thinks they can because they're considered "unique and creative and different" within Kpop.
    If big bang debuts in america, they'd get hate. 2ne1 might, just maybe have a chance though.

    Let's not talk about hip hop and rap, how many asians have actually made it in america's entertainment culture. Very little if any.

    Also that racism

    ReplyDelete
  62. Now this. Makes a lot of sense.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Tell me about it. I am a big fan of hip hop and fashion separately. But this little ~infatuation~ fashion has had with hip hop lately is so ughhh. >__> The thing is none of these hip hop looks are being designed by black people. They are just parodies of what white rich european snobs, the very same that had looked down on hip hop culture these past 25 yrs, THINK hip hop is. They have no respect for hip hop, they don't understand it. They only like to borrow the aesthetic but at the same time they are mocking it. And all the same time, they are blocking actual black designers from entering their strict little uppity circles. smh

    ReplyDelete
  64. FEM is pretty successful but, so far they've only had two "major" hits: Like a G6 and Rocketeer (shame cause' some of their other songs are a lot better, IMO).


    They've kinda kept it quiet after Rocketeer...I know they're touring but, they probably should release a big hit again...to stay popular.

    ReplyDelete
  65. 2NE1 has chance to US market cuz they are unique Hot and swag not like others asian women.

    ReplyDelete
  66. The thing is, at least in regards to GD, if he were to try breaking into the American market, he wouldn't be doing it through the mainstream hiphop scene. He knows better than to try becoming a rapper in the US.


    I expect that he would probably feature in more of the indie music scene, with artists such as Grimes, who has already claimed that GD is an inspiration to her.

    ReplyDelete
  67. And US already has amazing artist
    For the best rapper: Em, Kendrick, Schoolboy q, Pusha T, jay z
    For the artist: Kanye, frank ocean
    I'm BB fans buttt

    ReplyDelete
  68. Yeah, I agree. Lots of people heard "Oppa, Gangnam Style" as "open condom style" and they thought it was fucking hilarious...


    I just facepalmed. *sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  69. Whatever the outcome is, im glad they have the balls to do it. you guys are forgetting that the music industry is a business after all. its a gamble either way. if you never tried something, how do you know what the outcome is?if it fails, then YG can only improve from then on.

    ReplyDelete
  70. IT WAS CHEAP. He said he 'forgot' to say that Kendrick should have won. LBR he just didn't have the balls. He had an opportunity to make a STRONG statement that even in his guts he knew it was the right thing to do, but he copped out. What does a text mean to Kendrick? It don't mean shit. And then he posted it to appease the hip hop community bc he didn't want to alienate them.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I wouldn't be this convinced if I were you. The best would be a slightly expansion of a niche market but the cons outweigh the pros (just like in N.America.)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Glad that netizen like this drama. :) FIGHTING PARK YOOCHUN !

    ReplyDelete
  73. IDK. Don't really care tbh...The only reason I like Macklemore was because of his song "Same Love." Cause' it supported an amazing cause. Was it possibly a publicity stunt? Yeah probably but, nevertheless, it probably helped out with LGBT community.

    Anyways, interestingly enough, Lamar spoke out about Macklemore's text and he's not even pissed compared to Drake...I don't see why Drake had to get himself involved when it clearly was between Lamar and Macklemore.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Sorry but YG Land already sounds like a flop. YG needs to keep his ass in seoul if he knows what's good for him.

    I like the idea of Taeyang, CL and even G-dragon coming over here though. It would be funny to see how perplexed many americans would be with GD because he's so feminine and different but he does hiphop music lol. Hey it could work we never know. He sure intrigues me XD

    ReplyDelete
  75. YG can improve from a failure, but the artists he threw away trying this scheme are done for. People don't like to admit it, but they don't like stanning failures.

    ReplyDelete
  76. No he's overrated
    Kendrick got robbed in grammy last month

    ReplyDelete
  77. GD's English is a joke. Why would YG destroy their money maker on this attempt? That's too dumb even for him.

    ReplyDelete
  78. The music industry is notoriously difficult to get into. Even our own British artists have difficulty breaking into this market apart from 1D and some of the more well established artists.

    And the only reason why some British artist even experiencing success is because of the whole X-Factor phenomenon.

    It would be difficult to sell hip-hop/rnb to the Americans. Look what happened to JYP when they tried.


    But you have to start somewhere. If you don't try you will never know.

    To be honest it is not clear from the article whether other than recording studio etc..it is intended to be a base to promote Asian artists?

    And the name YG Land? Hell no. Why not YG studios? Keep it simple.

    ReplyDelete
  79. long long time ago people say only black people are good at hip hop and rap. And white men/girl never will be popular in this kind of music. When Eminem come out everyone dissing him being fucking white boy like vanilla ice. And now he's the biggest in industry. so everything can happen:)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Feature on people that aren't selling and have no name recognition in the US. Fabulous idea. When he could be making millions in Asia instead. YG investors would revolt.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Eminen was poor and had nothing to lose with failure. YG could lose 70% of the company's earnings.

    ReplyDelete
  82. For the rappers, they always make a group album like TDE, Odd Future, G.O.O.D Music, Young Money etc (Label's labum)
    But still they're individualism

  85. Her rapping is terrible because of her annoying voice. And she doesn't get the rhythm right.


    Hyorin could do well as a solo including doing some rapping but not CL.

    ReplyDelete
  86. He could improve on his pronunciation but to be fair he can at least hold a conversation in english like he did at his concert in cali.

    ReplyDelete
  87. They're not doing that well in Korea - 2NE1's recent comeback didn't make a big splash - how are they going to do well in America?


    Not to mention they're trying to sell concepts that originated in America and which they ripped off. Remember the dancer that they copied and they didn't pay him for using his dance and only begrudgingly acknowledged him in the credits after he complained.


    Watch YG's money going down the gurgler. Don't get too greedy, YG.

  88. "1. [+144, -5] If by any chance YG fails, it will be because of Yang Hyun Suk's dongseng. I feel like he's taking on way too many things at once lately."

  89. you really want me to believe lil' wayne sold 2 million copies because black people went out to buy his album? girl bye. demographics don't lie. 60% of hip hop consumers are white, look it up.

  90. but it's not like he can never learn though. I'm less concerned about his english, because that's not hard to fix. I'm more concerned about his feminine image which america might be pretty harsh about. I acknowledge it won't be easy for him but it will be interesting to see if it could somehow work.

    ReplyDelete
  91. He'll get fans from the Asian sector of the US population but he won't break into mainstream America. This is what happened with Wedding Dress.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I think Epik High might have a chance to carve out a niche for themselves, no?
    I think a mix of Tablo's lyricism and YGE staff's understanding of mainstream appeal could work. And Tablo's a Stanford graduate in English Literature and Creative Writing I think YGE could media play the heck out of that with some money.... maybe it's just that I want Epik High to reach out to a wider audience though XD
    It would be a shame if people didn't get to listen to the likes of Tiger JK, Epik High, Tasha etc just because they're Asian (I know that's the reality of today but I have hope that it can change)

  97. if he relly wants send 2ne1 and bigbang to america its their over and they'll end up like all koreans who tried to make debut there.. but yg wants more and more money but he loses popularity for his artists by this.. competition is really huge in industry and even big groups like bigbang, snsd and 2ne1 never be top groups forever

    ReplyDelete
  98. totally agree with this statement lol. everyone knows Psy but that doesn't mean everyone's open to asian music. it's true about the Japanese part too. unfortunate because they're style appeals to a more Western audience but the groups will never really make it big here in America.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Se7en, Rain, BoA, Wonder Girls ... all failed. They don't seem to learn.

  101. 1. [+31, -17] Yang Hyun Suk keeps overextending himself. America will
    never open its doors to Asia's pop music market. Psy making it through
    was a total lottery and he didn't win because he was 'cool' but because
    he was 'funny'. He did not get through because of his music. Yes, racism
    is involved but Americans are also prideful of their own music. YG
    seems to want to try America because their Japanese records aren't that
    great but they should just focus on Asia.

    This pretty much. We Americans say we're not racist but we are...especially towards Asians. YG should stop kidding himself. Their style may appeal to western audiences but the language barrier will always be there.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Totally agree they will end up like wonder girls!!! And YG will probably replace them

  103. Rivalry is not the point. There are dramas that have intense rival in the same time slot but got praised at the same time. TTBY doesnt have decent actors, the drama is a remake, and the acting is cringe worthy.

  109. Really promisisng, If you've watch sign and phantom drama. You'll know why this drama is hype. Even knetz who're not yoochun fan are eager to watch this drama because of scriptwriter.

  114. Well, I am glad it ended the way it did. Makes the drama DA BEST!

  115. The only person who I can think of in the whole of kpop who could do well in America is Hyorin. She did well amongst the international audience even though her company only promoted within Korea. People from everywhere were saying they're going to buy the whole album. She might do even better overseas than she does in Korea. For some reason, she seems to appeal to international tastes.


    As for YG, use that money to write better songs.

  116. I'm so happy because the drama received a good response from k-netz...and we all know that k-netz are very hard to please, especially when it comes to idols turned actors! And Yoochun's acting...what can i say...just DEBAK! Many veteran actors praised Chun for his acting skills! I really like three days, I like the story so much and ep. 2 is so awesome, can't wait for the next episodes! For me , Yoochun is the best and most respectable idol turned actor!

  117. Or just center her career around sounding like someone else. Like Ariana Grande tryna be Mariah. :s

  118. Oh this scene is like the best of all comic scene i have ever seen

    ReplyDelete
  119. No. Americans don't care about educational credentials of their entertainers. It's 90% sex appeal and Tablo remains a skinny sexless Asian guy, who is married with a kid. Sex appeal factor in the negative numbers.

  120. lol they have people who can't sing in America as well...*cough* Kesha *cough*

    ReplyDelete
  121. I'm thinking more of kpop in america... Maybe he is making an office/studio there in order for kpop concerts to be more accessible. Just think, instead of the usual american tour comprising of 2 cities (LA/NY), maybe they'll go to other states like Chicago... 0.0

  122. What if they were black?!

  123. #prayer circle for singer!chun comeback

    ReplyDelete
  124. maybe its because she has typical asian face and she's sexy for them.. but she cant speak english and its huge problem also ailee is much better singer than her and even she didnt success . its just they have their own singer they dont want other from other countries..

    ReplyDelete
  125. I think it's his hairstyle that gives you this impression...i've seen his recent pictures from the JYJ magazine and i can assure you that he's hot!

  126. when it comes to getting place in the entertainment outside of Asia for an Asian seems dark, especially music. its kind if sad in my opinion. how a white person can become successful in hip hop but when an Asian person does it its viewed as a disgrace or as they are racist.

  127. She didn't say anything about singing. o_O And those American non-singers aren't "gay ching chong, makeup wearing boys".

  128. He can't just stick with what he has just now. They're getting too old. In a few years all of BB and 2NE1 will be over 30. That's ancient in kpop.

  129. Chansung is really good in the special drama and in the 7th civil servant even Knets praised him.

    ReplyDelete
  130. ChunFace in action! Seriously, ChunFaces are the best and he is so famous for this!

    ReplyDelete
  131. 1st episode was really good.But I have some problems.The song and the scenes's feeling doesn't match.Especially when Yoochun was talking with that woman when he found the codes.Also I don't like how Park Ha Sun speaks.It's like she has runny nose or her mouth is full of food.I noticed it in Two Weeks too.

  132. minho and sulli are decent enough for manga type drama. they auditioned for the role even if they won the netizens' poll. i don't know why people need to butthurt about it since it's intentionally an idol cast studded. choosing a drama is a mater of preference too. but i also read some articles that they are praising minho and sulli as just like real actors. the plot is just lacking for ahjummas taste compare to it's competitors that's why it has low rating.

    ReplyDelete
  133. lol how discriminating is that? sm stans have right to defend sm esp. if there is a good reason. and i'm not saying we should love sm all the time as i myself give criticism whenever there is sm's fault. this discrimination is idiot as fuck!

  134. Lol forget "American drama level", try to match the Japanese first

  137. Your gif makes me think of L'Oréal ads :)
    Jun Ji Hyun has such beautiful hair.

  138. I don't know what's your 'ahjumma taste's like. And it seems like those articles about praising Minho are unfounded. Sulli might be decent but being decent is not enough.


    Maybe we just hae different preferences and standard about acting idols. So chill ^^

  139. Netizen poll = fans vote...general public does not give a shit...

  140. The drama is not bad i liked japanese version but korean version definitely floped because of actors their acting was just not good.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Ahh so you were talking about about the comments listed, I wasn't. Idk moon that embraces the sun, equator man, plus no one praises him for being only good for an idol, they just praise him for being a good actor.

  142. TWTWB aired early last year and Song Hye Kyo did not even attend the ceremony but she won Top Excellence Actress Award.

  143. JYJ will have their comeback 2nd half this year before they enter the military service. They are just waiting for Chunnie to clear his schedule. It was said before that their comeback was supposed to be 1st half of 2014 but Yoochun really wanted to do Three Days so they postpone it to 2nd half.

    ReplyDelete
  144. It was said that they'll have their comeback 2nd half this year after Chunnie clear his schedule. Three Days is still until April 26 and he will still have to promote his movie Sea Fog after that so the comeback will probably be at the end of this year somewhere Oct-Nov.

  145. Their rating is 11.9% and that is already good for a pilot episode. Heirs only got 9.9% for TNmS and 11.6% for AGB during their pilot episode before but they still got high ratings in later episodes. YWCFTS also only got 15% on it's first epi. And they reach 28% by the end.


    Plus most Three Days viewers are watching online since most of their viewers demographic are teens to young-adults (early 20s). University students who doesn't have TV on their dorms also uses phones, laptop and ipads etc. to watch. As a proof they got 36% in their online ratings which is a landslide win compared to their competitors. TV ratings isn't that much anymore since younger generations now preferred online viewing. That is why they start getting online ratings. This have been propose since 2012 since it seems that most people are now watching online.

  146. Am I the only one who finds Park Ha Sun's acting really awkward? Her voice is uncomfortable to listen to. I think So Yi Hyun is much better and prettier.

  147. no.. sad ending just makes me regret watching a drama:'(

    ReplyDelete
  148. agree! well actually i hate the whole story..
    fashion king has a better story but a bad ending.

  149. the only reason I watched was because of the writer, it's the same writer from Sign and Ghost, which are in my favorite drama list forever.

  150. even better, if you are an [whatever company] stan pls don't comment at all. you know what don't even breathe, you're wasting someone else's precious air

  151. Well, he didn't seem to actually asked, "Hey mom, you think this drama will be a hit?" It's more like that's his own conclusion when he considered that it attracts people that age and the casts.

  152. Can I asked for a prayer circle for jyj itself? Those guys need to release an album as a group.
