Poll: Best Female Groups (Kpop and Jpop)

2010年 6月 7日

Ok so this time on Tsuki no Ai we wanted to know who the queen bitches of music were in Korean and Japan. Personally I thought the Korean candidates were a lot stronger than the Japanese ones. While Japan has had a surge of new, strong female groups it still lags behind the veteran market of Korea. Let’s see who came out on top.

Jpop

awww how pretty

Perfume- 10 votes, 40%
Stereopony- 5 votes, 20%
Buono!- 4 votes, 16%
SCANDAL- 3 votes, 12%
Morning Musume- 2 votes, 8%
C-ute- 0 votes, no love for these girls.

Kpop


4minute- 9 votes, 35%
f(x)- 6 votes, 23%
2NE1- 4 votes, 15%
SNSD- 4 votes, 15%
T-ara- 2 votes, 8 %
Wonder Girls- 1 vote, 4%

Yay Perfume! I would have voted for those girls too. I was a bit stuck on Kpop results… I would have voted for 4minute or f(x) or even T-ara. Bleh 4 votes for SNSD? Now that I’m reviewing Kpop you all will probably hear me bantering on about my hatred for those #%(#$@(!&… heh sorry for those who like them, but I just can’t get over the Dream Concert controversy lol. I’m surprised Wonder Girls didn’t get more votes o_O

Is there anyone that you felt should have been on the poll? Speak up!

Anyway, bet you can all guess the theme for the new poll….

Poll: Summer’s coming, what do you do?

2010年 5月 16日

It’s been a while since I’ve made a post… I’ve been very busy with school. Thankfully I graduate this week so I’ll be back in business. This surely means summer is almost here! Personally I can’t wait for the beaches, warm weather, and cool breezes. So how will you all be celebrating everyone’s favorite time of the year?

Blast some high-energy Koda Kumi, Ayumi Hamasaki, or MiChi!- 7 votes, 37%
-seems like more of you prefer those upbeat, happy-go-lucky works of some of Japan’s most popular artists. My recommendations? Bluebird (Hamasaki), Lick Me (Koda), Why Oh Why (MiChi).

Chill out with some ethereal stuff like Utada Hikaru or salyu- 4 votes, 21%
-This stuff is great for nighttime, or when it’s just too damn hot to want anything else.
My recommendations? Beautiful World (Utada), Kairo (Utada), L.A.F.S. (salyu)

Go clubbing at night with Ami Suzuki, Perfume, or MEG ;)- 4 votes, 21%
-Apparently a few of you like the night life of summer! Hey, who could hate these queens of electropop?
My recommendations? FREE FREE (Suzuki), Edge ⊿-mix (perfume), WHY (MEG)

Imagine at the beach by listening to some Yuna Ito- 2 votes, 11%
-This would have been my choice. I love the laid-back atmosphere of her songs, especially when she lets her Hawaiian self shine through.
My recommendations? Mahaloha, miss you, BREEEEEZIN!!!!!!!

Concert hopping! Hitting every jrock concert in sight (or so I wish…)- 2 votes, 11%
-This would have been my second choice. I would love to go to Japan and see as many jrock artists as possible!
Who’s on tour? Sadie, alice nine., nightmare (not a tour, but Budokan in August!!)

So aside from music, does anyone have any cool plans for summer??
