Having been away for a long while, the F.T. Island boys are saying goodbye once more through today’s MnetM! Countdown after a month of promotions with “Hello Hello“.
F.T. Island are concluding their third mini-album promotions to prepare for their one-month-long “2011 F.T. Island Natsu Tour Messenger” concert tour which begins on June 29th.
So check out their goodbye stage below!
Having ended promotions for “To Me“, the Rainbow girls are back with their repackaged album and follow-up title track, “Sweet Dream“, on this week’s MnetM! Countdown.
“Sweet Dream” was created by Japan’s Daishi Dance, with assistance from AP and Park Se Hyun. The pop dance track aims to charm with its sweet, fantasy-like feel.
Originally nominated to be the title track for their comeback promotions, the girls felt that “Sweet Dream” was better suited as a follow-up instead. And following the popularity of their ‘black swan’ dance for “To Me”, Rainbow has prepared a new point dance choreography, called the ‘Dragonfly Dance’, where the members dance with their eyes closed on stage for their performance.
Having made a fairy-like debut with “I Don’t Know“, the A Pink girls are right back at it with “It Girl” for their follow-up promotions on today’s Mnet M! Countdown.
With just a week’s rest (doubt they had much), the girls are coming back with their their innocent, fairy-like image intact but with a more approachable and outgoing kick to their style.
Their follow-up track, “It Girl”, from their debut album was composed by Kim Gun Woo. The song is characterized as a sweet synth pop track and is noted for its combination of an arpegio patterned synth and cute dance beat. Kim Gun Woo made sure to emphasize the girls’ innocent image with sweet lyrics about a love confession. The repetitive lyrics make for an addictive and powerful track.
Talented group 8eight has returned to the music scene with the release of their mini album, “Eight”, and their title track, “Close That Lip“, on today’s MnetM! Countdown.
Composed by Park Sun Joo, the song is supported by 8eight’s amazing vocals and Don Spike’s sophisticated arrangements. Fans are mostly used to the 8eight that sings ballads, but they will see a brand new style with this new track.
Lee Hyun shows a new vocal style, Joohee sings the climax with emotion and delicacy, andBaekchan flaunts not only his rap skills, but also his singing skills.
