f(x) 


At Music Bank a couple of weeks ago, f(x) and 4Minute mixed it up and performed the other group’s song. f(x) performed Mirror Mirror and 4Minute sang Pinocchio (Danger).

Which group do you think did the best job (disregarding Hyun-a’s microphone problem)?

My vote goes to f(x).

 

This was f(x)’ first comeback stage with Hot Summer. They pretty much nailed it, if you ask me.

I watched this on a live stream as it was airing. I had miscalculated the time difference, but luckily I switched the stream on just when f(x) were performing.

 

Have I mentioned lately how much f(x) rule? Well they do. A lot :) .

I already posted a youtube clip of Hot Summer from the repackaged version of their album. I wasn’t expecting much to be honest, but I really like it. I often skip the repackaged albums, but I’m going to get this one.

All the girls get plenty of time on screen and they all look great (especially Sulli and Krystal). I wonder why Luna only has that red wig on for a few seconds in the video.

There is one bad thing about this song though. There was this huge heat wave here, but as soon as Hot Summer was released the temperature dropped and it started raining. If the song is somehow cursed, I fear that I’m going to ruin a lot of people’s summer around here by playing the song over and over :P .

As you probably know all too well by now, I went to SMTOWN Paris last weekend. It was the first SMTOWN in Europe ever. It was also my first K-Pop concert and my first visit to Paris.

This will be a lot more text than I usually post, but don’t worry, there are pictures further down. I thought about boiling it down to something shorter, but then it would take too long before I could post it.

You’ll want to check out this teaser of the new title track on f(x) repackaged album Hot Summer, which is coming out later this week (digital version already out).

update: full MV out now: smtown

 

Today I received three out of the five packages of K-Pop and J-Pop goodness that I’ve ordered. I haven’t ordered much this spring… until now that is.

You can see how shocked Luna is. When she realizes that they’ve won she bursts into tears.

They’ve won several times since then.

 

피노키오 (Danger) is the title track of f(x)’ first full-length album Pinocchio which had its digital release a couple of days ago and will be out on CD next week.

All members look great in this music video and I like the choreography too. What do you think about the song? I like it.

I haven’t had time to listen to the album that much yet. It’s a bit odd sounding, but in a good way. Definitely feels like f(x) :) .

Easter egg –> egg
 

The release of f(x)’ new album has been delayed. The last I heard was that Krystal said on a radio show it would be out in April. Luna said in an interview that the album would be released in the first half of 2011.

You just gotta love Luna’s shirt in this performance :lol:

 

Lately I’ve been watching f(x)’ Koala (f(x)의 코알라), which is a TV show where the members of f(x) (except Amber) go on trips around the world spreading Korean culture through challenges they get during the show. This has increased my interest in f(x).

Here’s a performance of Mr. Boogie from KJE’s Chocolate. This performance doesn’t include Amber either, but rest assured: f(x) is making a comeback with a new album in February — all five of them.

I dig Victoria’s outfit in this clip. Sulli’s not so much. I really like the “everyday clothes” that Sulli wears in f(x)’ Koala, though. Very elegant.

Perhaps I should mention that I got my subbed episodes of f(x)’ Koala from KpopClubSubs.
