A preview of BoA’s first song on her American debut album set to come out March 17th came out – “I Did It for Love”, featuring and written and produced by Sean Garrett who wrote and produced songs like User’s “Yeah!” and Chris Brown’s “Run it”. It’s not great – it’s very stereotypical American pop in my opinion – but it’s not terrible either.
Meanwhile SeungRi of Big Bang and Kim Bum of Boys Over Flowers(mm, the deliciousness!) are set to be in a movie together
Oh yes, and girl group After School premiered their debut video Ah MV, featuring Marco. They come from Son Dambi’s entertainment group, Pledis Entertainment, and are (apparently?) modelled after the Pussycat Dolls(!) and want to show everyone a different kind of girl group…by which I assume they mean they’re going to try to follow Dambi’s more hard-edged/overtly sexy musical style, as opposed to the pop-ish/cute/girly style of many other girl groups like the Wonder Girls.
Surprisingly, I don’t hate it. The lead girl in particular seems to have some strong vocals going for her. But I”m withholding judgement until I see more from them.
