If the lyrics of U-Kiss’ comeback single “Doradora” asks you to leave and never look back, the boys’ sexiness unearthed in their performances is asking the opposite. Instead of doradora (leave, leave) it entices you toborabora (look, look).
Next week’s episode of Arirang TV’s Simply K-Pop will show U-Kiss’ sexy dance choreography for Doradora. Among the seven members of the group Kevin, Kiseop and Eli receive the most attention from many fans who were at the studio to watch the performance live.
Eli showing off his broad muscular shoulders after performance, Kiseop flaunting his abs while at the center doing the sexy wave and Kevin’s unbeatable sexy facial expression and hand gestures. Judging the pictures, who do you think is the sexiest? Hosted by LED Apple’s Hanbyul, the said episode will be aired on Arirang TV on May 22nd at 11am (KST).
With SM Town happening in L.A this past weekend, it seemed like American Kpop fans were out in force to show their support to the SM artists who’d flown over. Whenever Kpop idols go to another country for a concert and to promote, you expect fans to be out on the street trying to snap a picture of their favourite groups. After all, the chances to see Kpop groups in a country that isn’t South Korea, or a neighbouring country to it, are few and far between. However, you’d usually expect a massive amount of hype and excitement for a well established act like SNSD or DBSK, who have built up huge fan bases over the years, but not so much for a rookie group.
Even so, SM Entertainment’s newest group, EXO, discovered that even though rookies who debuted around a month ago, they had plenty of fans in L.A! The day before the SM Town concert, SM artists had a free day to relax. EXO, of which both EXO-M and EXO-K were in attendance, had a fun day out at Disneyland. If EXO thought they’d be having a free day in relative anonymity, they were nicely surprised as many EXO fans were also in the theme park. EXO looked shocked but very happy and thankful to find that they already had so many people cheering for them in L.A. Plenty of fancams and photos have since been uploaded onto the internet of EXO in Disneyland, demonstrating just how many fans EXO have in the USA. By all accounts, EXO were very polite in acknowledging fans and seemed to have a really fun day out! We look forward to seeing more of EXO in the future.

2012 has already seen a whole host of male groups debuting and making come backs, and it seems as though this trend is not slowing down any time soon. Originally classified as ‘Project A’, CROSS GENE, which is part of the company Amuse Korea, is a project group made between Japan and Korea. Because of this collaboration between Korea and Japan, it is not known yet what CROSS GENE’s music direction and style will be like. Will they be more Jpop or Kpop, or a merging between the two is anyone’s guess at this point. As CROSS GENE’s members have begun to be revealed on their official website, there is much speculation that their début cannot be too far off.
The first member to be revealed is Japanese member Terada Takuya, born in ’92. On the CROSS GENE website he is labelled as ‘Gorgeous Gene’. Takuya is a both a model and actor in Japan, and at a height of 187cm, it’s no wonder he’s been quickly snapped up to become an idol and given the title of ‘Gorgeous Gene’. At this time, it is a guess that each member may be specially linked with a certain type of gene or trait i.e. ‘Intelligent Gene’ or ‘Sporty Gene’.
Although any other members have not been officially confirmed yet, there has been much speculation as to who they could be. From the website, the members’ names can be seen along with an outline of their faces. From this fans have been trying to gather together information on people each member may be. It’s not yet known what the ratio of Japanese to Korean members will be.
