Kpop Exercise Routine.html
Hey Soompiers! I have some cool news about an upcoming project this is eager about bringing K-pop to the hundreds – yet unlike Soompi’s news-oriented focal point this project is all about thinking bigger, like, big screen bigger!
What occurs whilst you pluck a best idol out of Seoul and drop him off in small-town America? the beginning of a really, truly amusing romantic comedy that would incorporate the slick choreography we’ve come to be expecting from K-pop and a tale that every one people K-pop fanatics might be ready to attach with. The story, subsidized via Wilmer Valderrama, is planned for a feature film – hitting theaters across the united states and introducing more audiences to the entirety that K-pop has to offer.
We’ve synched up with Briana Frapart (the film’s writer and producer) and Aimee Lee Lucas (producer) to determine precisely how you can sign up for in the making of the film and make your voice heard. PSY could have presented K-pop to track listeners and Youtube aficionados, but this project goals to introduce K-pop to filmgoers everywhere.
Being produced with a team of professionals in the box of K-pop music and dance (from Lydia Paek, Keone + Mari Madrid, Quest Crew, and Ellen Kim to call a few), the film is going to turn K-pop how it used to be intended to be shown – and may come with some wonderful cameos as neatly as the stellar cast!
The KPOP Project team introduced a website just the day prior to today to get fans concerned with the making of the film, yes, but also to give back to the fans that experience been supporting K-pop in the US these sorts of years. It’s thank you to determination of fans like you that we are spoiled by super acts coming to the states just about each month. Enroll this stream and bring some great acts, and genuinely-earned recognition, to theaters around the U.S.!
Some of the perks you'll be able to get keep of from their crowdfunding campaign include: tickets to the film’s 2017 L.A. premiere, walk-on roles, the opportunity to be a further throughout the concert scenes (free concert!), a commute to Korea for filming, dance classes from the film’s choreographers themselves, film swag and way more!
We’ll be keeping you up to date with the film’s news and bringing you some exclusive policy on production, so remain tuned for some exciting announcements! Let us know your mind under in the comments section, we’d love to grasp what you’re thinking!

Stephanies Prisoner Is An Exercise In Uncomfortability Written by Lo On August 19, 2015 One of the biggest tragedies of 2nd generation K-pop is the short career of CSJH The Grace, who lasted only five years before breaking up in 2010. A close second, though, is that despite the immense vocal talents of all four members, none have embarked on a genuine solo career. Luckily, that is being remedied by Stephanies release of her solo track Prisoner.
Stephanie was never the best vocalist in The Grace, but she always knew how to play to her strengths, and that particular skill clearly hasnt gone anywhere. Prisoner is a mesh of late 60s doowop and cleaner, more modern pop; its a combination that really suits her lower vocal range and sultrier tone. However, while Stephanie is doing everything she can to sound good, the production work sadly does her no favors.
The biggest issue with Prisoner is with the mix itself. It really feels like whoever did the final layering of the various elements didnt actually bother to listen to Stephanies vocals because they are completely overpowered by the instrumentals. Her voice is buried underneath unnecessary post-production effects and a series of extremely irritating cymbal crashes despite the fact that Stephanie sounds amazing. This arrangement takes a good performance and makes it sound cluttered and lazy. Its almost impressive how blah Stephanie sounds in the final result.
The composition faces some serious problems conceptually that the bad mix just aggravates. Stephanies not a powerhouse, but she does have a powerful voice, one that is best showcased against a more basic instrumental with enough edge for her to play with. Prisoner, though, is cluttered and messy. The cymbals, the unneeded backup singer, the over-present drums, the xylophonenone of those things are needed for the melody or the harmony, and they do nothing for the texture of Prisoner other than make it feel vaguely frenzied.
If Prisoner had been left as a slower, more elemental piece of music, it could have been a huge boon to Stephanies credibility. She was the main dancer in The Grace, and her prior solo work, Game was a dance-oriented piece that suited those skills. By contrast Prisoner is far more vocally demanding, and allows her to assert herself as a singer who dances rather than a dancer who sings . . . if you can manage to hear and absorb her voice over the crowded track. This was a shot for her to reassert herself as a vocalist, and the ball got dropped so hard it hit lava.
The MV is a vast improvement over the song itself, but that doesnt make it good. I will say this, though: the aesthetics match the vibe of Prisoner completely. The styling is pitch-perfect, matching the bright colors and prints commonly seen in 60s wear with more modern cuts to create a look that is equal parts classy and sexy. The cinematography is wonderfully crisp, and the sets are stark, but intentionally so, creating a very theatrical vibe that matches the theatrics of Stephanies delivery rather fabulously.
Unfortunately, thats all thats good about the MV of Prisoner. It was competently filmed, but the content is lacking, to say the least. Theres no plot about Stephanie and her man, he just appears and then vanishes halfway through the MV. The scenes of Stephanie in a cage are thematically appropriate but come off feeling tacky, and Im not just talking about her clothes. Prisoner sexualizes the idea of a woman being held captive by a man. Its subtle enough to avoid being truly offensive, but creepy enough to make me facepalm. Its more uncomfortable than anything, which is better then creepy, but still not good.
Stephanies choreography adds to uncomfortableness. As stated previously, she was the dancer of The Grace, released a dance-oriented debut and pursued professional dance after The Grace disbanded. Yet, here, she doesnt really dance as much as she poses rhythmically. It is a clear waste of talent as that smacks of pissing away respect for her skills in the hope of charting slightly higher.
Even with all that, there is one thing that really kills Prisoner for even casual listening. Prisoner has a Fatal Attraction vibe going on. Its never explicitly said, but the lyrics imply that Stephanies boyfriend is married, or at least cheating. She compares their relationship to a thriller drama, no happy ending, openly admits her actions will result in punishment and the chorus makes reference to her boyfriends girl, which (rightly) worries her.
Between the implied girlfriend and Stephanies own melodramatic declarations that she will neither let you leave nor go back to how it was before, a picture emerges. She was the other woman, and when her boyfriend tried to end his affair, Stephanie took itnot well. The lyrics and the MV both back up the idea that the relationship ended badly, and Stephanies very dramatic delivery really doesnt help the Fatal Attraction feeling. So while theres nothing concrete, Id hide your bunny for a couple weeks, dude.
On the whole, Prisoner has some good elements, and Stephanie in particular serves to show the world shes still got what it takes, but between the production and the lyrics, there is room for improvement on her next release. And by improvement, I mean not making the audience feel extremely uncomfortable for three minutes. But lets be honest: when it comes to The Grace, well take what we can get.

an editorial from Billboard includes a plagiarism accusation on how Taylor Swift"s MV for "Bad Blood" bears similarities to 2NE1"s " come again home" MV.
A screencapture collage of the striking similarities of a few scenes from either MVs circulated on SNS and has reached the "Bad Blood" MV director Joseph Kahn, who manifestly isn"t satisfied on what"s brought up.
He in the beginning tweeted,
"I don"t know what"s going on at the moment. I just make videos." and " the truth none of you realize the flare-hallway series in BAD BLOOD is from ALIEN 3 disappoints me. Fincher FTW."
Then he makes his point to rebut the accusation via, "whenever you hit me with in head with a bottle of kimchi I wouldn"t know a unmarried Kpop song in the final five years. Too busy being attentive to Anaconda," implying that he hasn"t had any concept of 2NE1 song and is very unlikely to rip concept off the MV. He also hits back that the similarities pointed out my netizens don't seem to be authentic.
"FYI: town, vehicle, futuristic mask, frame scanning. these are now not unusual SCI FI TROPES. Flare from Alien 3. Also, forestall recropping to check shots." trying to be witty amidst the heated argument againts kpop lovers, he tweeted a photo of BEAST"s topless symbol with the caption, "#TBT me and my staff with our shirts off directing BAD BLOOD track video"
finally, he provides some suggestion to KPOP lovers,
"The nicest thing about pissing off some Kpop lovers is they don"t call me chink or faggot, like Lil Monsters do. So there"s that."
"Cool that Kpop is enjoyed. I don"t practice because I"m busy & have a variety of demands on my time so don"t be angry. I shaggy dog story so much on twitter."
"I paintings in Asia so much & Asians are excellent folks. So I accept as true with many of you Kpop lovers to be more practical and no longer more immature. lift on. thanks."
He additional denies the accusations via citing some of his MV inspirations, "Tracking outdoor to inner of used to be opening of poisonous, which used to be from my Janet Jackson Doesn"t in truth subject, which used to be from Citizen Kane."
"I"ve been doing vids for 2 five years. so much of folks"s vids are influenced via my vids being influenced via videos."
"the truth is if anything else so much of videos in the final 1 five years use shots/ways from me, adding Kpop. That"s some Kanye tweet correct?" , "And I"m officially done speaking about this."
meanwhile, the discussion about Director Joseph Khan plagiarizing 2NE1"s MV has been raised in the middle of Taylor and Nicki"s SNS feud over the latter"s unhappiness for being no longer nominated for 201 five MTV VMAs.
