1) It's been a slow month. Good news has been far and few.
2) Apparently I'm too nice. David is too mean (I've never heard that. Never). Therefore, together we will create a mediocre and bland article.
First good news of the month:
DJ Tukutz is back from the army.
It has been a long 2 years (to be fair, he doesn't contribute much to the group musically; he's just a funny dude). All that's left is for Mithra to return (as he went in a year ago) and we will have the holy trinity back. Epik High, we miss you (we really fucking do).
Secondly, another famous trio has returned. Koyote, a group I've never heard of, has made a comeback with the song "If You Don't Like it Now" (powerhouse Shinji, lovable Jongmin, and dead-weight Baekga are together again. I think I'm going to fucking cry). It's not bad. I kinda like it. But I have nothing to compare it to as I don't know shit about their old stuff . Their template is like 8eights' where one guy sings, the other raps, and the girl hits the ungodly high notes.
The group apparently had to go on hiatus for 2 years due to a member (Baekga) having to recover from a brain tumor (
Lastly: this could be made into a post of its own. In short, we (she) want to talk about how teasers are the shit and raise very high expectations. ... Until we see the actual MV and are horribly disappointed much of the time (very true. Although kitty ears on Suzy weren't disappointing at all, for the most part). I wanted to bring this up because I recently saw a debut teaser for an up and coming MALE SOLOIST (not many of those out there, so I am fudging excited), EI (the song is produced by Brave Brothers, don't be too excited).
Please... please don't disappoint like Boyfriend:
Look at those sexy (BUT UNDER-AGED. FFFUUUUU-) (and sometimes fish-eyed) boys. Bet that teaser made a lot of ladies' panties as wet as those boys are on the water floor. But calm down your raging hormones! The MV will surely blow your mind:
Wait. What? What!? What just happened? Who are they? What happened to the sexy dancing boys from the teasers!? WHAT IS THIS SORCERY!?!?!
Well. It was bound to happen. An entire boy group of eunuchs. Lovely.
But fear not ladies, these young men certainly have plenty of time to grow and become men (or fish) (or as the fans will turn them into, metro-sexual boys who will question their identity). Plus, so far, their performances have shown clean and clear dance moves like INFINITE (<3). Which is pretty damn impressive.
Also, how do they expect to share ONE girl amongst SIX boys!? (oh, I'm sure they'll manage.
Finally, another classic "wtf just happened" teaser example goes to SNSD with "Run, Devil, Run" (don't forget every 2PM teaser, ever):
I wanted that. But got this:
So in short, entertainment companies, we all understand that you give us golden teasers to tempt us into buying all your shit AND eat it up, too, with your MVs and CDs and such. But sometimes, it is almost worse to give something beautiful, and then take it away (blue balls) or give something mundane. Maybe, and this could just be me, just give us a teaser of what we should actually expect instead of making many fans cry themselves to sleep asking "Whyyyyy!?".
Then again, you sneaky people you, you know all your delusional fans will follow you no matter what craziness you throw at them *cough* Super Junior's Mr. Simple teasers *cough* (colors...... too....... bright).
