    星期四, 1月 17, 2013, 6:17 下午
    发表人: Jamaica dela Cruz


    Long time no see, PopAsians!

    Apologies for being away, I've been doing a bit of traveling...

    I WISH! Tongue Out

    Super Junior's Siwon tweeted a photo about Senyang, a city in China which he thought looked like Batman's Gotham City:

    We asked you PopAsians about your favourite fantasy places from movies and lots of interesting places were brought up, like The Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory, Pokemon territories, the tea party in Alice in Wonderland...

    Too many awesome places to mention! In fact it made me feel KINDA like I traveled.

    So I thought I'd share my Top 5 favourite Film Fantasy lands, in case you felt like a bit of 'traveling', too. Wink

    5 - NEVERLAND (Peter Pan)

    Must Do: Sprinkle on the Fairy Dust and Fly!

    4 - HOGWARTS (Harry Potter)

    Must NOT Do: Study. Even if it's magic, it's still school and it's still studying, I say.

    3 - RIVENDELL (Lord of the Rings)

    Must See: That pagoda featured in 'The Hobbit 1'... (Can I PLEASE get married to Legolas there)

    2 - PANDORA (Avatar)

    Must Do: Bet you're thinking it--Ride a Toruk! (the dragon-like creatures in the film)

    1 - TRITON'S KINGDOM (The Little Mermaid)

    Must Do: Swim around singing 'Part of Your World--and which little girl HASN'T dreamed of doing this for real?

    Thanks for staying with me thus far, would love to hear about your Top Fantasy world to visit! Sound off in the comments section below, or on Facebook when I post the link to this up. :p

    Asian Pop Twins!

    星期二, 12月 11, 2012, 11:50 上午
    发表人: MegaMatt

    Is it true that everyone has a twin? Apparently everyone has a twin in the world, yours is somewhere over the rainbow. Or you can simply start looking for another half by watching cartoons. Celebrities and cartoon characters have a lot in common. Many famous faces remind us of beloved on-screen memories, both animated and in puppet form.

    So let’s begin with the hottest couple in town, Ken and Barbie!

    Ken and Barbie: T.O.P (Big Bang) doll anyone? Yunho (TVXQ) and Jessica (SNSD) they were named in ‘Barbie & Ken Award’ 2012 and received the dolls that looked like them. Jessica previously performed the song “I’m A Barbie Girl” during one of SNSD’s previous tours. Looks like she got her wish!

    Disney Tribute: Girls can simply make a huge difference by changing hair style. 2NE1’s Dara could be Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Park Bom lives 'under da sea' The Little Mermaid style.

    SISTAR's Hyorin and 2NE1's Minzi both look a bit like Mulan, don't you think?

    Super Junior’s Siwon - Shang as Mulan and Shindong and Eunhyuk could be The Lion King's Pumbaa and Timon. 

    It's not just Disney and old cartoons though - it's all over the anime world too.  Check these out from Naruto:

    Hyunseung(Beast) - Gaaara, Zico(Block B) - Shikamaru Nara, T.O.P(Big Bang) - Kakashi-sensei and Jia(Miss A) - Sakura Haruno, G-Dragon(Big Bang) - Naruto Uzumaki, Taemin(SHINEE) - Rock Lee


    TVXQ’s Yunho – Taewoong (Slam Dunk) and 2AM’s Jinwoon - Gin Ichimaru (Bleach)

     Super Junior’s Eunhyuk - Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)

    Girls Generation’s Yoona - Risa Koizumi (Love Com) and Seohyun - Honoka Yukishiro (Pretty Cure)

    Super Junior’s Donghae as Charmander from Pokémon.   Maybe you saw this online, PSY as  Pokémon's Squirtle

    With full apologies to 2NE1's rapper CL, we may have found your doppelganger – Gyewangshin from Dragon- Ball!

    So what do you think PopAsians? Do you agree, have we left anyone off the list?

    Fashion Monster. Your Favourite idols in glasses

    星期四, 12月 6, 2012, 3:47 下午
    发表人: MegaMatt

    Glasses are a fashion trend that has been popular for years. Asian pop stars can totally change their look and personalities just by changing their glasses.  If you wear glasses, try one of these five looks - and totally reinvent yourself!

    The Professional Look: There are no other accessories that can make you look more sophisticated than a pair of solid and chunky glasses, of course. Eunjung from T-ara and Kim Hyunjoong look so sleek and smart.


    The Comic Look:  Wearing those oversized comic glasses, they look so - even more - adorable. Look at Lee Kikwang (Beast) and Dara (2NE1). Those glasses cover half of their beautiful faces. 

     Harry Potter: It seems like these Harry Potter glasses are a fantastic collector's item for not only fans, but also idols. Maybe it's impossible to own Harry Potter's magic power by wearing his glasses, but we can feel it and catch the trend of fashion immediately.

    Why So Serious? Our crayon boy G-Dragon said thousand times to our girls and boys, “GET YOUR CRAY-ON!” You can also match the glasses with your hair colour like So-Hyun(4minute), Nana(After-School) and T.O.P (Big Bang). These happy candy coloured glasses are sure to make them look fun, trendy and swag.


    It's Party time: At this time of year, it's time to dress up, and this last trend can leave you looking either hot or hot mess. What do you guys think of Super Junior’s Yesung’s rabbit inspired style, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s heart shaped glasses and Jay Chou’s 3D one?

    What do you think, what's been the fashion-highlight of 2012 for you?

    MegaMatt and The changing colour of Asian Pop

    星期二, 11月 27, 2012, 2:37 下午
    发表人: MegaMatt

    Sunny from Girls Generation revealed her purple hair this week, she looks great – but idols changing hair colour is not a new thing.  But ever noticed that they all go similar colours? Before we get to that - here's Sunny's new 'do 

    What started out life as a blog about hair colour must first take a detour around some science.  Or maybe we should call it an art lesson; coz that sounds more fun. 

    Red, blue and yellow are called called Primary colours – which means they are the basis of all the other colours we know.  Mix those colours in combination with either black or white (which are called tones) and you can make any colour.  Mix all of them together and you get an awful browny-green colour – not at all a fun hair colour.

    Sunny’s got purple hair.  So does Japanese idol Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. 


    Kyary’s could be a wig though, she does love to dress up.  Unfortunately, she keeps her purple hair safe with a guard-shark, and we were too scared to attempt to check for wigs.


    To make purple, we mix blue and red together…

     Hyunseung from B2ST supplies the red hair


    And T.O.P’s blue hair certainly caused some talk earlier this year. 



    Fellow band-member G-Dragon couldn’t decide where he fits on this Asian Pop Colour Chart and chose a bit of both 

    Jo Kwon opts for a greeny-blue 'do

     While Shindong from Super Junior stripped the blue out all together for some fancy pink hair 


    And pink, on the colour scale - is so close to purple it feels like we've come full circle

    MegaMatt's - Best Asian Pop Jokes

    星期四, 11月 15, 2012, 5:31 下午
    发表人: ANIA

    Recently on the 'LIVE @ 5' show we were making bad jokes about Kpop stars – and the chatboxers got into the action too. 

    My best joke was What is EXO’s favourite holiday?  KRIS-mas!


    And then we got flooded by other jokes.  I hope you’re not reading this on public transport coz you’re about to split your sides laughing. 


    What is BIG BANG when they take their shirts off?  TOPless

    How do BAP fix broken items? with Zelo Tape

    What does INFINITE do at your birthday?  They Sunggyu a song. A Sungyeol never forget.

    How do you get Pikachu on a bus?  Poke him on!


    (photo credit: Diana bella )

    What did KEVIN say to DONGHO after he held open the door for their manager? 
    You’re such a Kiseop

    A gold star goes to this one:

    How do the WONDER GIRLS greet people?  How have Yubin?


    But every good joke list should end with a chicken gag.  You ready?

    Why did the chicken cross the road?  It wanted to go to an Onew world.

    The Princess Ania Diaries - Embarrassing Dance Moments

    星期三, 11月 14, 2012, 2:29 下午
    发表人: ANIA

    Ever had an embarrassing dance moment? Common, please tell me you have...  right?? {#emotions_dlg.undecided}

    Ok, if you're there kind of nodding, but still not sure. This should warm you up...

    On South Korea's MBC 'Section TV', 4Minute member and soloist in her own right, HyunA admitted poking her dancer’s eye during a routine. OWCH!


    On the show, HyunA said, ‘when we were practicing, I made a mistake” and, “As my arms shifts to the back, my nail poked his eyes during the choreograph.”


    But that’s not all, HyunA added, “he was hurt really bad. But didn’t say anything except, “It’s okay”, please poke the other side too.’

    Aww… very funny, but very nice (of the dancer that is!).

    So… are you ready to admit your embarrassing dance moments yet?

    For those that have been chilling with us ‘LIVE @ 5’ Monday to Friday, I’ve dug this out from Friday’s episode.

    As DJ Masta Tea’s mushi-mash was playing, MegaMatt was ‘rocking it out’ (with the plastic guitar) and for no good reason, Jamaica and I decided to pick on him.

    The music was on, we were all bopping... and then have a look at what happens… 

    I decide to take my moves to another level... a side shuffle kick here and there...
    and then, notice the green figure flying in the air?

     That’s my shoe!!


    Haha awkward and embarrassing, but that’s what you call, really getting into it! ;)

      Hope that warms you up now... can't wait to hear your stories =)

    Tweet us @SBSPopAsia or Tweet @ANIA_SBSPopAsia

    We'll be sharing the 'best' ones on today's PopAsia 'LIVE @ 5' show

    J-BLOG--Finally Meeting TVXQ's Yunho

    星期四, 11月 8, 2012, 6:15 下午
    发表人: Jamaica dela Cruz


    Hi PopAsians!

    Wow—what a busy few months it’s been!

    Remember that this time last year, everyone was eagerly awaiting the first Kpop Music Fest in Sydney? I was lucky enough to host the press conference and be one of the first to see the twelve Korean pop acts. They’re a dazzling bunch, but pop duo TVXQ are just on another level (this is NOT the first time you’ve heard me say this), especially when you see them in person. Tall, lean and confident, they exude the charismatic aura of successful veterans.

    Which is why I proceeded to do THIS the next Monday on PopAsia Radio:

    To our surprise the video went viral among the Cassiopeia (TVXQ official fanclub) circles. From thereon Yunho was dubbed my “dark vampire prince” within PopAsia’s own circles.


    Nearly a year later I was invited to special co-host the ABU TV Song Festival in Seoul, which showcases some of the most popular Asian pop acts from the Asia Pacific. Pop group Girls’ Generation was reported to be representing South Korea, and their member Tiffany was supposed to be the main female co-host.

    As fate would have it, Girls’ Generation had to pull out of the event because of conflicting schedules, and TVXQ replaced them. Tiffany couldn’t host either, so I became the main female host.

    I knew it was a great honour, but I didn’t know how MASSIVE it was until we were ALL backstage. It was like an out-of-body experience, rehearsing lines with Japanese pop group Perfume, who were wearing fluffy slippers, like I would rehearse back home with another PopAsia host. Later when the show was about to start I was rushing to my place when I tripped over someone really tall…someone really YUNHO. He and Changmin were ‘gonna go out before me and all the while I was playing it cool, trying to remember my part in the whole. It was all so ORDINARY, the things we were doing, but I guess that’s what made it so amazing.

    Standing on the same stage as TVXQ, and introducing them to the audience.


    Later still I would shake their hands, telling them well-done, noting that Changmin’s the smiley one. Backstage he’d dash off first so I only caught Yunho, who takes a photo with me and tells me to enjoy the rest of my evening.

    Yep, that story’s come full circle. Thanks for being with us that whole time, PopAsians!

    What should we do next year? :)
