New Video: 2NE1 - It Hurts [Video released October 31, 2010]

I was just back tracking on my blog and realized I haven't updated with the new video 'It Hurts' by Korean female super group 2NE1!! This is the 4th single released from their highly anticipated album 'To Anyone' released September 9, 2010.

The YG Entertainment recording artists have traveled the world, made hit singles left & right, capatavated audiences with their music, have a diverse vocal range & abilities, fearless, out-of-the-box style. You could say they are like the Destiny's Child of Korea mixed with a little Lady Gaga but these ladies clearly stand out as originals and are trendsetters amongst their peers!

They represent girl power to the fullest and are the sister group to one of the biggest selling boy bands in Korea... 'BIG BANG'! They have also worked with american producer/song writer and Black Eyed Peas band leader Will.I.Am on tracks for 'To Anyone' the current album.

They've done a ton of fashion spreads for some of the biggest magazines from W, Elle, Vogue, ID, Vogue Girl, Seventeen Korea, and many more endorsements for big name fashion designers such as Jeremy Scott for Adidas Originals! Keep a look out for the ladies as they will be my Artist for the Month of December!

The AMAZING thing about this group is that they've accomplished so much in such a short time only debuting in the music scene in mid 2009 it's quite exciting to watch them excel so quickly! They are an example that hard work and dedication really does pay off big time!

Well I hope you enjoy the new video for 'It Hurts' by 2NE1 released October 31, 2010 [Halloween]!

They definately are showing that they are here to stay with this album 'Lucifer' they went into heavy promotion one of their biggest singles and the most anticipated albums of this year. The intricate dance moves and futuristic artistry of this video and project makes for a classic hit record and their performances are just captavating. They just took a very fearless approach this go round with their music, ever changing style, and over all packaging which shows them as a force to be wreckoned with!

As you can see Minho is missing from some of these performances, I think he had a knee or ankle injury I'm not very sure. Sometimes you can see him on the side still performing and keeping up with the band It says alot for these guys as a whole and it's important to him and all the members that he is a part of the group. It made me appreciate what they do alot more! They truely are a fantastic group of guys!

After the full promotion of the '2009,Year Of Us' album debut the fellas yet again got busy in the studio recording their official 2nd album entitled 'Lucifer' which was released in early 2010!! Which in my opinon is one of their best albums to date! It shows a big change in their style and really showcases the growth they all have been through in the past 2-3 years since their debut back in 2008. It also shows them in the credits for writing a big percentage of this album which I will post up for you to preview next!

I swear these guys are talented vocally and they write most of their own songs. If you get a chance look up some of their english subbed videos on youtube. Just listening to it Korean is already great! HAHA!!

Music Video: SHINee - Amigo [SHINee Vol. 1 - Amigo (Repackage Album 10/31/2008)

This is the music video for the single 'Amigo' off SHINee's Vol. 1 - Amigo (Repackaged Album)which was released on October 31, 2008 and is called the first album but is really an extention from the first original album 'The SHINee World'. See confusing right? Haha! This album also included their singles 'Noona Neomu Yeppeo (Replay)' and 'Love Like Oxygen' but also included their soon to be other hit songs like 'Romantic', 'Best Place', 'In My Room' & in the video above 'Amigo'. I'll post some performances for 'Romantic' & 'In My Room' in my next post!

Music Video: SHINee - Juliette [2008/Romeo Album Era]

Juliette [Original Version]

Juliette [Dance Version]

This is yet again another single off their 2nd album 'Romeo' which is a extention of 'The first repackaged album 'Amigo' the single is entitled 'Juliette'. They actual released original versions of the video along with a full dance version for most of the singles they released from their first album projects. SHINee like I've mentioned before are known for their dance moves among other things. The 'Romeo' album consisted of 6 brand new tracks, It's kind of confusing how they release albums in Korea if you don't follow it closely. But it's totally awesome If your a music lover because the music does not stop for long. They release the first 'official album' and then the 'extention album' and then still call it 'the first album' just with new tracks.

Music Video: SHINee - Love Like Oxygen [2008/The SHINee World album era]

This is the video for "Love Like Oxygen" another single released from their first album 'The SHINee World. Also from the 2008 Era.

This is the very first official music video for SHINee's 1st single "Noona Neomu Yeppeo (Replay)". It was released on their 2008 debut album 'The Shinee World'! The video definately captures a fun, love at first sight type of feel to it. Shows the fellas of SHINee's star potential, great vocals, slick dance moves, and over all showcased each of their individual personalities through their actions and style.

I actually wrote out a whole personalized short bio on the group and It got erased so Im a little upset XD! So above is a little intro about SHINee. Sorry guys I would re-write it but Im tired so to learn more about the fantastic South Korean boy band SHINee click here to read their Wikipedia!

I will be posting some what of a timeline as the days go on that will showcase some of their live perfomances, projects, music videos, and photo shoots and whatever else I could find on the fellas of SHINee!

Introducing Artist of the Month: SHINee

SHINee World [Album Preview]

The Korean band SHINee consist of 5 members Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho, & Taemin. SHINee made the debut on a popular show in Asia called SBS Popular Songs with their promotional single 'Noona Neomu Yeppeo(Replay)' which debuted May 25, 2008. Since then these fellas have been everywhere blazing the charts with hit song, after hit song!

They quickly made a name for themselves and were seen on almost every television show and concert venue. They released their 1st album 'The Shinee World' which is posted in the picture above.
Also a numerous amount of singles, music videos, awards, they star in their own reality show named after their debut single 'Noona Neomu Yeppeo (Replay)'. Photo shoots in some of the biggest fashion magazines such as; Vogue, Nylon, Dazed, Numero & many more!! Which I will continue to post throughout the month of November.

It is a little hard to keep up with alot of the release dates for each project and performances so I'll just post whatever comes to mind along with the year it was released atleast so you can watch how SHINee has risen to super stardom in a matter of just about 2 years. It's really pretty AMAZING to see the energy and talent these guys evoke within each and every performance. They are all just vocally gifted which is a big plus for me when it comes to music. Good voices are a major plus!

They are all very different in their own way but have grown into one AMAZING group! It shows in everything they have done thus far. They have also become fashion icons setting a trend amongst their peers and fans called "The SHINee Trend". They are definately trendsetters If you can't tell by their fearless and unique style!

I hope you learn about and ENJOY KMBB's Artist of the Month SHINEE!
