YouTube recommendations worked for once! I ran into this pretty complete compilation of Brown Eyed Girls throughout the years, since their beginnings in 2006. As you may know or not, I discovered BEG from Abracadabra [1] and didn’t appreciate their first two albums completely — I liked them, but just liked them — until my trip to Taiwan when I spent most of my highway time listening to them.

However, I haven’t actually bothered to look for Brown Eyed Girls performances throughout the years, so I was astonished to actually SEE how much they’ve changed physically. I knew that JeA, Miryo… and specially Narsha had talked about the things they got done, as they often point out the struggle GaIn had to go through for not accepting to undergo whatever their label wanted her to go through. I had seen the photos and some of the old music videos, but to actually see them perform and SEE — it’s shocking.

I also respect their honesty on the subject.

I’m also SHOCKED at the part where Miryo kinda reminded me of Bibi, with the hair and the geeky getup, included geeky glasses and all.

I just died laughing with GaIn’s parody of G-Dragon’s One of a Kind [MV], but specially during Narsha’s dance because THAT WAS TOO FREAKING MUCH. And, of course, I need subtitles.

Just ran into this amazingness done by Kooree Kim, animation student debuting at the 3rd Cartoon Brew Student Animation Festival. Not many days left to vote, though. Still worth checking out all the other shorts.

How… did I not know about this Ayumi Ito appearance??? Oh yeah, I don’t follow AllKPop and nobody in Kpop knows Ayumi Ito. FML. Ayumi Ito starred alongside Lee Jong Suk (As One ???) in the 2011 music video for Longer (롱거) by CHI CHI (oh, these Korean group names…). In it, Ayumi plays a woman whose boyfriend cheated on her with the woman (???) who is Jong Suk’s girlfriend in the story.

I got the album overnight, and I have listened to it a couple of times. I’m beginning to really dig the instrumentalization and the ending of While You’re Sleeping, but I’m still surprised JeA (and her engineer) is choosing to do all her air intakes with the microphone so close to her mouth that you listen to it all. I could maybe understand it if it was only the live version, but it’s also on the album… which is all the more noticeable.
