YounhaandLeeSun-hee2.jpg

Younha and Lee Sun-hee, the Diva of South Korea

On Immortal Musical Classics (Season 2, Episode 6-7) Lee Sun-hee and Younha finally met! Younha have sung Sun-hee's songs earlier, but this is the first time in the Diva's presence. Lee Sun-hee was very pleased with Younha's singing, and played the melody for "good" or "correct" twice, as if she wanted to assure Younha that she liked her interpretation a lot! It is said that Lee Sun-hee wanted to see Younha, that she even requested for her to be there. Unfortunately, as Lee Sun-hee seems to be preparing for her comeback, Younha is preparing for a comeback in Japan. Will they meet again soon? Or is heaven a place far from earth? :)

How to save Youtube video in highest quality (link to forum post)

(When seeing a video on YouTube that you'd like to save you can easily download it by adding "mp4" to the adress after "youtube". For example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPH747uVux0 becomes http://www.youtubemp4.com/watch?v=XPH747uVux0.)

How to save Youtube Videos in HD and mp4 with Firefox Addon

If you are using Firefox you just simply have to download an addon for this. Because it's now (feb 2009) still a beta, you'll have to sign up to download it. But it's free, and with no risk I think to receive spam later on. The videos which are available as HD on Youtube are the ones you can download. Link to HD and mp4 video will be shown on YouTube site, below the description text. The link will still be there for those none HD videos as well, and then it wont work. Then you'll have to download mp4.

If you do not have and don't want to get Firefox there should be good alternatives out there. Just google something like "How to save Youtube Videos in HD and mp4" and you'll see. Might be some risk for none serious sites though, so beware.

How to pronunce Younha's name correctly

It should be pronunced like 'Yoon-Ha'. It is common that her name is pronunced 'Yunna' instead in Japan.

The best way to learn this pronunciation is to listen to it in recordings. I will add a link to a suitable example of this.

I've heard her songs and she's pretty good. So is K.

I don't understand what's up with Koreans debuting in Japan, is it easier to debut there?

She actually is known in Korea for gaining fame in Japan. She just hasn't debuted in her home country. If Younha and K decide to debut in Korea, I bet they'll become popular.

Korean things are popular now in Japan.

I find that the singers who get hit in Japan are less multi-talented like k-pop singers, but they are more excellent in one area... you know what I mean.... In J-pop, if your singing is excellent, you don't have to be good looking or wear nice clothing... where as the K-pop stars that are sucessful are usually all round, ok in singing, dancing, and good looking... It depends on what you prefer... but I think it would be easier to please a J-pop crowd, cuz its less demanding....

^ i think this hits a point.

sometimes i also think its because the j-music audience is slightly more mature/accepting of different music types. so it's easier for them to accept what younha or k wants to do. so they debut in japan first. or it could just be simply that the j-music market is much larger so its easier for them to do the stuff they want to do. (i could be totally wrong about this. i don't know either younha or k and really don't know that type of music they really want to do as an artist). but it would be nice to see them recognized as singers in korea too eventually...

like, with jaurim in their beginning days (if i'm not mistaken) they did a lot of acts in japan. slowly the korean general population likes them/knows them (although they've been known in the korean underground for a while).

about k though, his j-music sometimes makes me think of ken hirai. maybe it's their singing voice style...

Its not that your singing is excellent its the substance of the music. If your music is really good and touching all kinds of people, they will like your music. I feel that kpop now is 1-dimensional and shallow. The music they produce isn't really emotional felt at all nowadays. Its all really puppy love or sex that is being played. Thats why you have artists like K and Younha going to Japan, where they take notice to the music rather than the looks. Its easier to please the kpop crowd cause most artists are one-dimensional with what they do. There's no messages in music in kpop anymore its all "look he can dance wow" or "he can sing well" all the good artists do and all those artists are the same in that their songs are 1-dimensional puppy love or sex. It's like artists are creating songs in order to show off dancing or vocals rather than creating songs out of actual heartfelt emotions. I guess I ranted too much on how I feel about kpop but oh well.

Ummm...I would like to disagree. In my opinion, that's exactly what I think about American rap/hip-hop in general, but not Korean. I may not understand Korean, but some of the songs that I have read the translations off of are quite deep. And some of the artists don't write their own lyrics because their producer decides whatever they sing. They may also choose what the artist wears, what their hairstyle may be and their image. There are some artists that we may not know if they even have any say in their music career. One huge example, LSM who produced H.O.T., S.E.S., BoA and DBSG. I doubt they had much say in their clothing and hairstyle much less what they sing.

Vocals should also be a big part of singing, shouldn't it? I mean, you're saying that if a person had absolutely no talent in singing, sang off-key, their pitch is way off, and they don't know a single thing about music, yet sung a song that was very deep, could you stand listening to them for more than a minute? Or would you have to politely tell them to keep on practicing or something?

For an example, look at BoA. She's a Korean artist, yet I know a few people who think that she is Japanese. She is a well respected singer in Japan and very popular. Her songs are quite good and her singing ability is superb. But some of her songs are what you mentioned, yet the J-pop audience loves her nonetheless. Singing capability has to be measured if she wants to compete with all the other J-pop artists. I mean, not all the popular J-pop artists sing deep or meaningful songs do they? I think Locolotion by Orange Range would be a perfect example for my last question. I don't think it has any meaning, yet I love the beat and the guys sing/rap the song quite well.

And it depends on what your taste in music is. It may be both, it may be neither, it may be something completely different. I like K-pop and J-pop purely because of the composition, because I do not understand what the artists are singing.

LUCKILY, NO! She's from Sony Japan, I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I remember I saw her on their artists' homepage. Anyways, since her first debut on PopJam singing Hoskiboshi, I felt in love with her. :wub: Her music style is unique and she's really multi-talented; she can sing, write lyric (she co-wrote the Korean version of Yubikiri & If), and play the piano REALLY well. ;) I rather not see her dance, instead she should concentrate on singing her best on stage. She has real potential and I just hope she will suceed in Japan. Though I think she should stay as a Japanese artist FOREVER, I really want to see her on music shows every week and maybe even on gameshows. :P

I remember that someone told me when she was auditioning for a Korean music entertainment, they turned her down, and a Japanese music entertainment (it's Sony Japan right?) scouted her and trained her. Houki Boshi is indeed a very good song. I only have two songs of hers though, Houki Boshi and Touch. I would like to listen to more....

Houki Boshi, I love that song. You guys should check out her new single "My Lover" also the pv is kinda funny/cute towards the end, but maybe i just think that.
