Taeyang is Solar

Taeyang made his official comeback to the K-Pop scene last July 01, 2010 with the release of his full length album entitled Solar.  The official MV of the carrier single entitled I Need a Girl has been out for fan’s pleasure.

No doubt, Taeyang did it again.  The whole concept of needing a girl and hating to be single fits him.  I must say the beat of the song is a little light than his usual music and i love it.  It so refreshing to hear Taeyang sing this song.  The MV also shows a different side of him.  He looks a little naughty and playful this time while still showing that great bod (which makes the video Hot!).  Taeyang is definitely cute and hot  in this video — rare combination. I won’t be surprised if ‘I Need a Girl’ becomes a huge success, it has the support of GD and Sandara as his girl interest in the MV. 

The first live performance was made thorugh MNET.  He did not just sing one song but THREE!  He had an Intro, Just a Feeling and I Need a Girl.  Not everyone gets to comeback this big on MNET, I remeber Lee Hyori singing at least 2 songs when she came back but she is an MNET artist.  Though I think YG and MNET sort of have a close relationship, good to see Taeyang doing a big comeback on stage this way.

Lucky dancer, I forgot her name but she is always with Taeyag.  During the 나만 바라봐 (Look Only at Me) promotion, the girl gets the best dance routine with Taeyang.  She gets a good spot also in the Wedding Dress dance choreography.  This time she even gets to smack Taeyang.  I am also loving the dance routine, well it’s not much of a big surprise for a good production number from Taeyang and the YG dancers, it’s almost always expected.   Everytime he has a production number there is always a  signature step  this time I find the step sometime on 1:00 cool for Taeyang.   I remember how he danced Wedding Dress with that step where the count seems to be double compared to the beat.  I love that part and Taeyang executed it flawlessly.

I Need a Girl is definitely a feel good song.  Something that will make you groove a little while listening to it.  I like the whole idea of the production number for this carrier song, it’s like an MV on its own.   I will definitely have this album on my collection.  Good job Taeyang!

Sandara Park is Back + Gummy’s New Album

I was reading popseoul’s recent posts and found out that Gummy has made a comeback with her new album.  Surprisingly the first song released features Sandara Park (former Star Circle Quest winner of ABS CBN) partnered with TOP one of Big Bang (빅뱅 ) members.   The song was entitled Mianhaeyo – 미안해요 (I’m Sorry).  Sandara is back in the limelight but not in the Philippine Entertainment arena, she is back in her home town but I am glad she looks prettier there. 

I quickly searched on the MV via You Tube.  It was a good comeback song for Gummy.  It was a little upbeat R&B with of course Top doing some rap.  I was curious to see the video because for a long time I have not seen Sandara Park, I have read about her training in YG but this is the first time I am seeing her work with some of the known artist in South Korea.  I saw the video and it only features Top and Sandara, something about parting.  Top looks like some kinda bad boy with a rough image in the MV.  He seem to be chasing her loved one who is Sandara (who is actually saying Mianhae -미안해 to Top for leaving him).  Top’s apprearance is striking — his eyes are way too expressive.  Sandara on the other hand looked like soft and lady like.  I like her in the video.  I was reading the You Tube comment thread and it seems fans have mixed emotions, in fact the comments are more concentrated on Top and Sandara rather than Gummy.  Some Big Bag fans are sad of Top having to kiss Sandara in the MV but I find chemistry in their pairing.

See the full MV here:

I was expecting Gummy would comeback with some soul-type R&B but her debut song was not bad at all. I got to appreaciate it more when I watched her in YDH Love Letter than listening to the music from her MV.  Watching the MV will make you focus on Top and Sandara.   I like Gummy’s voice its so crystal clear.  ‘I’m sorry’ was a pretty easy song for her, its something you can listen just to groove and not really dance.  Top did a great rap, I think somehow he look a little more mature now.  Check out their performance.  I couldn’t help but notice how hot Top has become and Gummy makes me imagine her performance with Wheesung way back:-P
