CL – The Baddest Female – Inkigayo June 9th 2013 – Review

9 Jun

I’ve waited for this stage! CL dominating Inkigayo as The Baddest Female! I heart 2NE1. I’m not a Blackjack by anyone’s standard but I love 2NE1 all the same. To me, they are the most credibly street out of all the K-pop acts. PSY has got his thing, but let’s be honest ¬_¬ CL could rap him under the table ands till have time to do the unnie and the horse dance *flicks weave*

It gives me great pleasure to review CL’s mutizen winning performance on Inkigayo today! Check out the review below and let me know what you think!

Style & Staging

CL - The Baddest Female - Inkigayo June 9th 2013

My own personal style is a bit more preppy than CL’s, but you got to admit, she looks flawless here. Her baggy red pants and braided hair make her look the right side of street. You got to also love the dancers – they look creepy but cool at the same time!

Also, this deserves its own paragraph, I bloody love her grill! How cool! It looks a bit scary but pft, I think she rocks it and looks hot.

Mid way through the performance, after the bridge, CL breaks it down and transforms into a glamorous diva! Her one piece is daring (check them legs!) but she keeps it glamorous without being cheap. Check them legs again! I thought CL’s style and staging was flawless and while it might not be as grand as some of 2NE1’s group stages, it still rocked!

Overall rating for Style & Staging – 5 / 5 stars.

Choreography

I LOVE the dance for The Baddest Female. I love it to the point I catch myself doing it randomly around the house. It takes me back to the r and b days of my youth *ahem* Everything is just so effortless. CL makes the whole routine seem like she’s just swagging out.

I have to admit that some of the movements I find a bit questionable but she rocks them out flawlessly. I’m going to do the unnie right after I finish this post #justsaying

Overall rating for Choreography – 5 / 5 stars.

Vocals

As this is mostly a rap song, and CL is a rapper, there isn’t that much singing happening here. Nonetheless, CL gives a perfect vocal performance. In fact, it’s pretty much the same as the studio version.

K-pop Workout Playlist!

14 Jul

So, I’ve not actually started my new exercise regime just yet but it’s definitely in the pipeline. I was meant to start last week but I caught a virus and was at home resting for two days. It was not pretty. Since then, I’ve not really had the time to start but I did wear my new trainers for the first time on Saturday – they gave me a blister! I was not impressed! These teething problems are to be expected though.

I’m approaching this exercise stuff from an easy going point of view – I want to do it for fun, not as a complete lifestyle change. I like carbs far too much to give them up (especially cake, I can’t imagine a life without cake; sometimes I’ll just have cake for dinner). Part of my relaxed approach is to have a fun workout playlist to listen to. I spent some time the other day creating what I think will be the perfect playlist – and it’s all K-pop songs! Hurrah!

K-pop Workout Playlist:

1. SNSD – Run Devil Run*
2. T-ara – I Go Crazy Because of You
3. Park Bom – You and I
4. Chae Yeon – Shake
5. SNSD – Girls’ Generation
6. T-ara – Bo Peep Bo Peep
7. Wonder Girls – 2 Different Tears (Korean Version)
8. Sandara – Kiss
9. SNSD – Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)
10. IVY – Touch Me
11. T-ara & Supernova – TTL Listen 2
12. SNSD – Gee

* = power song

I think it’s a pretty good playlist for working out. It’s got a lot of fast paced songs with lots of thumping, hard beats to really encourage you to push that bit further! A couple of songs are a bit slower, but they have really strong choruses. Like Park Bom’s You & I is a slower, mid-tempo ballad but all the emotion is going to spurn me on! The power song, SNSD’s Run Devil Run, is the song I’m going to listen to to give me a bit of a boost! At the moment it’s first to place but we’ll see how it goes.

Hopefully I’ll get to go on a run soon and this playlist will help me concentrate and focus. Jia you!

Update:

I know I’ve not actually posted this post yet but I have gone on a run! I’ve gone on two with varying degrees of success. I’m not try to run too hard and stress myself out or injure myself so when I run I take a lot of breaks and walk a lot too. The first one I ran with my friend who runs often and is very health conscious and he gave me lots of tips. The second run was hampered by my agonising hay fever which meant I couldn’t breathe properly and everyone knows breathing properly is crucial when doing exercise. However, the playlist worked really well! I did have to chuckle to myself though – Run Devil Run whilst running? The irony is not lost on me. I’ve not yet had a chance to run again but I might try to go tonight! Jia you! Cheer me on ;_; It’s far too much hardwork!

CL & Minzy – Please Don’t Go Live @ Inkigayo

6 Dec

Hrm… 2NE1 are not my favourite band. I don’t think I quite get their concept. I mean, I do like I don’t care but their other songs are a bit too street for me if you get me. Regardless, CL & Minzy are pretty cute and give a good performance of their song. Still <3 Park Bunny Bom more though~

CL & Minzy – Please Don’t Go Live @ Mnet Asian Music Awards

21 Nov

I have to say that although out of all of the solo singles released by the 2NE1 girls this is my least favourite, CL and Minzy both give a great solo performance and really know how to bring energy to the stage. check out the performance, it’s pretty cool.

CL & Minzy – Please Don’t Go

20 Nov

Following on from Sandara and Park Bom, it’s now the turn of the youngest members of 2NE1 to release a single. They’re doing it together this time and the song has dropped! CL and Minzy give a pretty cool offering, but I definitely prefer Park Bom’s the most, and then Sandara’s. This sounds a bit like a 2NE1 b-side. But it’s still pretty cool. I’m looking forward to seeing their stage! I bet they’ll rock it.

Sandara – Kiss (feat. CL) CF Video

12 Sep

So, Sandara’s debut solo single’s CF video has been released! She’s promoting Cass beer with Lee Min Ho as her love interest in the video. It looks pretty cool. Sandara can be both very cute and like a little pokemon but also very fierce and like a baracuda. I think what happens is she’s tired of Lee Min Ho’s rogueish ways and thinks: “Well, fine! I’m going to put on my 2NE1 gladrags and take control”. I think that’s what 2NE1’s message is about – girl powah!

Sandara – Kiss (feat. CL)

8 Sep

I never really liked 2NE1. I know their they’re the biggest rookies at the moment and have had a pretty amazing debut, but there’s something that I don’t quite like about them. I guess it’s because I like my K-pop with extra sugar, and the 2NE1 girls come with extra spice ;D Anyways, I do like their I Don’t Care song. But, Sandara is releasing a solo single called Kiss. It also features a rap from CL. My opinion..? I wouldn’t be blogging about it if I didn’t like it! It’s much less… squeaky.
