  1. Upcoming group debut - Purple K!SS Purple K!SS is a seven member gir-group that will debut under RBW (Rainbow Bridge World), a company that started out small, but now are a reliable company to count on for making artists, not just idols which perform. One of their members is currently on temporary hiatus until her health improves so they can go through with their debut, hopefully early next year. They have recently released a digital pre-release single, which also comes with a performance video, based on the girls ideas themselves for the performance. 'My Heart Skip a Beat' is c
  2. The market is also very competitive, if SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment and JYP Entertainment debut a group, they are pretty much destined to become big, as those companies are the three largest one, with huge popularity. For a smaller and newer entertainment company (label) to debut a group, it's much harder to succeed in the market, some groups make it good from a smaller company, while a lot of groups also are a flop. Their definition of comeback is certainly different from how it's used in the west.
  3. I don't have a Netflix subscription, so I haven't come around to watch the documentary yet, but it's correct that there are used massive resources on training, marketing and research before a group have their debut. There have been some numbers going around online, pointing out that debuting a new group could cost upwards off $1 million, that includes training, marketing, research, producing music video, promotions in music shows etc. Then you got comebacks, most groups have two of them every year, which comes with a mini-album that contains up to 6 songs, one music video and two to
  4. A group often cover songs from other groups before they have their debut, to show off their skills, whether it's dance or vocal covers, to build up hype around them, and to let people know about their abilities. After a group have had their debut, they mostly do their own songs and choreographies, but some random covers occur from time to time, especially if they are from a smaller and more unknown label. Dancing and singing is essential to all K-Pop groups, you'll seldom find a group who does only vocals, dance is always implemented.
  5. The largest group I know about is NCT, which has 21 members. It's completely normal for groups to have everything from four, to twelve members though. It's a lot of practice for them to get the choreography right, and synced between members. I've seen a YouTuber do computer analysis of the dance practices many of these groups public, and the good ones is usually from 90 to 95% in sync, all the time through a choreography. Most of those who end up in groups have decided from an early age that they wanted to become an idol, and have spent hours every day, on vocal practice and dance pr
  6. I got a Mac mini delivered today, base specifications, 8GB unified memory and 256GB SSD. I'm impressed with the general performance of this little thing, it does feel more snappy than my MacBook Pro 16" (i9 2,3Ghz, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD and Radeon Pro 5500M 8GB) with normal tasks. Applications feel more snappy when I open them, they are pretty much instantly open. If I want to get a new Mac with the M1 chip, it does look like I would have to get one with 16GB RAM though, 8GB is a bit tight with my habits. I do like that silver is back, though! After having rocked Space
  7. Apple announced their first Macs with the new Apple Silicon chips on November 10th. Three devices was released with their new M1 chip, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13" and Mac mini, deliveries started November 17th across the world. What is your opinion about this?
  8. I got bit by the K-pop bug last year, it all started when I started watching a new streamer on twitch, and their playlist for the stream pretty much only consisted of K-Pop. There was some songs that I started to like after hearing them a few times. This turned into a loophole, after discovering one group, it quickly stacked up and I found even more groups which made music I started to like more and more. K-pop is often classed as a "genre", but it is as diverse as western pop-music, it's just produced somewhere else, and commonly sung in a different language, in this case, Korean. Y
  9. I went from an iPhone 11 Pro Max, to iPhone 12 Pro this year, as I wanted a more manageable device. There is a trade-off this year, where I didn't get the new improved sensor-shift wide camera, and the slightly longer telezoom, but main reason for me to upgrade was to get a smaller device. I've now had it since launch day (October 23rd), and I do love the smaller phone, I find it much more manageable for me in daily use, just waiting for the new leather case to arrive next week.
