K-POP

What is your first idea when I say South Korea? Maybe Seoul, kimchi, the most modern technology or clothes. It is a very difficult question, isn’t it?

Well, I’ll help you. Last summer I noticed that the first Asian song was played very often on Slovak radios. It is called Gangman style. Have you ever heard it? I think 95% of you heard it and I want tell you that this song is sung by Korean’s singer – Psy. When someone says the word KOREA, my first idea is K-pop! Handsome boys, beautiful girls, the best song.

 

 

So, what is K-POP?  

It is an abbreviation for Korean popular pop. It is a musical genre consisting of Pop, Dance, Hip Hop, Rock, R&B and electronic music from South Korea. K-Pop has become popular among teenagers. Thanks to fan pages on Facebook, iTunes, Twitter profiles and music videos on Youtube, it became popular all over the world.

 

History

1990s – First K-Pop girl’s and boy´s bands were established.

Later in 1990 on the scene appeared YG Entertainment, DPS Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, etc.

2000s – Many of the biggest K-Pop groups and solo singers, including BoA, Rain Bi, Wonder Girls, TVXQ, JYJ, SS501, 2PM, BIGBANG, miss A, KARA, Super Junior, SHINee, 2NE1, etc. became popular in the East and South Asia.

 

I come from Vietnam that is why I am interested about K-PoP.

Since I’ve started listening to K-pop, I try to memorize some of the words, I can say some words in Korean and I learned some K-pop´s dance choreography, too .

 

My recent top 5 K-pop songs:

1. Crayon pop - 빠빠빠 (bar bar bar)

2. 2NE1 - Falling in lovE

3. Teen Top – Rocking(장난아냐)

4. G-DRAGON - 삐딱하게 (CROOKED)

5. Exo – Growl

 

You should try it!

The Ice Hockey World Championship

I am sure that every real fan of ice hockey is sitting in front of  TV and supporting our team on these days. Yes, madness called  Ice Hockey World Champinship is HERE! :)


The 76th Championship takes place in Finland and Sweden. In 2012 it will be introduced a new championship format. 16 teams will play in two preliminary round group with eight teams playing against each other .The top four teams in each preliminary round group will advance to the quarterfinals. Quarterfinals will be played within the groups meaning the teams will not need to travel from one country to the other to play the quarterfinal game. The cross-over system will be implemented as of the semi-finals which will be played in Helsinki. Medal games will be played in Helsinki as well.

Captain of our national ice hockey team is Zdeno Chára. Slovak team is composed mostly of less but also well known players. Our boys play like one team and this, in my opinion, it is the key to success. Their mission is to get to the guarterfinals, which is also important for qualifying to the next Olympic Winter Games in Sochi (2014).

So, good luck boys, we trust you! Nech bože dá, nech bože dá veď my na to máme! :)
