NC.A 


The song that has really stuck with me the past few weeks is NC.A’s My Student Teacher (교생쌤), that I wrote a little about before. Since then I’ve watched some videos of her performing this song and another one on TV and radio shows and she’s much younger than I thought from just hearing her voice. She’s turning 17 next month. It does make the lyrics to her debut song sound more age appropriate, though :) .

Another thing I noticed was the pronunciation of her stage name, NC.A. I should have looked at how it’s written in hangeul (앤씨아) because it’s an “ah” at the end, not “ay”. From one of the interviews I watched I think she said that it stood for something like “new creative artist”.

The other song she’s been performing on the radio shows and show cases has been It Rained All Day (하루 종일 비가 내렸어) by DIA. It has a nice sound to it and NC.A sings it very well in my opinion. I hope she includes it on her first album.

This is a fan cam from one of her performances. There’s a lot of noise from the audience. There are other videos of her singing this song, but I liked this one:

I also read that she’ll be acting in the drama Reply 1994 (응답하라 1994), which starts next month. It’s a sequel (or prequel – I don’t know) to Reply 1997, which I haven’t seen, but it’s supposed to be very good from what I’ve heard. NC.A’s role appears to be pretty small though, since she’s not mentioned (NC.A or 임소은) in any of the cast lists I’ve seen.

NC.A’s twitter, facebook and youtube.

 

NC.A is a new artist on the K-Pop scene. I caught her music video on youtube and, while the lyrics sound a little silly perhaps, I really like the song for some reason. It’s cute and NC.A has a really nice voice.

It’s not her in the video. It’s Hye-ri from Girl’s Day (which I also like, by the way).

It’s really nice how Loen Ent. subtitles all (or at least most of) the videos they publish on youtube. Both music videos and interviews and the like.
