Official MV for Jonathan’s RUN

Dove commercial featuring G.E.M. and Kim Soo-hyun

um idk what to say. 

This is the supposedly “super expensive and fancy” big production.

tbh they seem to be selling the two celebrities more than selling chocolate >.> but I didn’t even like the commercial that much. Yes definitely G.E.M. was gorgeous but the whole style was very ugh?

not trying to be racist but I think it would be much better if they had the random waiters and street ladies to be white instead. Isn’t that style of singing supposed to be in some white language too? it just sounds so weird in mando, prolly cuz it’s China. omg this is like watching Disney dubbed in mando -_- awks. G.E.M.’s singing parts are more acceptable. 

I thought this commercial was going to come out on Aug2?? maybe that’s for the song???? 

Dove commercial featuring G.E.M. and Kim Soo-hyun

binkit replied to your photo“NEW ALBUM! Once Said - Shiga Lin (expected release date July 31,…”
Seems sort of pointless. All the songs are so old at this point!
Yea I understand what you mean, but Shiga calls herself to be a “digital singer” so her company puts a lot of resources on digital promotion if that makes sense? That’s why she releases all her songs online. I thought she wasn’t going to release a physical CD either, but I guess it’s for the fans who like having a physical copy in their hands :) Maybe there’s a photo book or a DVD included.

I just read a news article about how this group of kpop music people like composers and producers are going to HK to establish the “kpop system” where there’s interviews and many many years of training. Now instead of flying all the way to Korea and…

 I wouldn’t be too against it (obvious bias) and I think they will look at HK’s music scene and adapt accordingly. They’ll see how those HK ‘girl groups’ (Super Girls is it?) and ‘boy groups’ (無限 Kissy Kissy Kissy) aren’t well received and put out artists that would suit HKers’ taste. In fact, some Korean "ballads" would probably sound good in Cantonese.

The article (thanks for the link!) mentions “Dsign music” who apparently also write songs for non-Korean artists as well. I guess one way they could test the waters would be to write some songs for any HK artists willing to work with them and who knows? That might give the HK music industry an extra boost.

LOL the group who sang “無限 Kissy Kissy Kissy” is called 拾音社. The name of the song is actually Kiss Kiss Kiss, and 拾音社 is from Guangzhou not HK. Actually Super Girls was booed at first but they’re liked now for their acting and looks. I knew them for the music first tho lol. 

Yea I noticed how Dsign music also writes music for non Koreans too. Well hopefully they can make songs that is suitable to HK’s taste rather than forcing kpop styles onto cantopop. But think about it, who can afford their songs? Like idk these things about prices and stuff but if HK companies use songs from Dsign who created “internationally” famous songs, it must cost a lot. sighs~

I just hope that HK can have its own style and for its people to realize that HK has good songs too :/

Yeah I completely forgot their name, I just remember seeing them on one of the music shows (360? The one with my fave guy 坤哥) and having that song stuck in my head for the rest of the day. I guess I don’t know enough HKers to properly gauge Super Girls’ popularity, but I guess it’s good that they’re liked now (obvious bias for girl groups here). 

That’s a good point, I presume HK record labels aren’t exactly rolling in the $$$s with the rampant pirating. But it might help to introduce some new songwriters into the scene. Is 林夕 still around? I know very little about Cantopop nowadays.

Same, which is why I hope this will become a sort of boost to the industry rather than hurt it :D

Yep! 坤哥 hosts 360!
Have you heard of 坤哥’s cover of Kiss Kiss Kiss! I like it lol

Yes 林夕 is still around! 黃偉文 is still big too. I personally favor 林若寧 and 林日曦’s lyrics the most (they’re said to be 林夕’s apprentices!)

林欣彤 - 食物鏈

This song isn’t fancy sounding or anything but it brings about a very realistic taste that can touch you.

The lyrics are written by Wyman Wong. Before this song was released he was saying how he’s so happy to work with Mag cuz he always seems to work with the same few people, and those people are getting old too. Mag is young and new(ish) lol. 

The lyrics are about how a girl is the one dominated in the relationship. She wants to have a chance to be the one in charge too, but it doesn’t happen. This song is kinda like the opposite of a previous song 樹藤 which was about being willing to do anything for the relationship. So the guy always thinks he’s so big and important while seeing her as small as an ant. In the end, the girl realizes that the guy can stand so tall only because she is there to support him. If she leaves, he is nothing. 
The arranger for this song said that this song shows a weak helpless girl that stands strong in the end. That matches very well with what we know of Mag!
