After announcing a comeback for late February, miss A has finally revealed the concept images for their upcoming album.
Recently, miss A gave fans a sneak peek into their new music video by inviting select fans to the set. Immediately afterwards, they released a still-cut from the video to the general public. Now the ladies have followed up by unveiling several concept images that exhibit a softer, more feminine side.
For their photos, the members of miss A were wrapped in cream-colored bandages. It’s a dramatic outfit, but when paired with faint makeup and dark hair, the bold look becomes wistful and even a little fragile.
A representative from AQ Entertainment (a sub-label of JYP Entertainment) stated, “This album marks miss A’s mature transformation both musically and visually. We ask for your continued interest and love towards miss A’s new album and comeback.”
Images of miss A member Suzy receiving kisses from 2PM‘s Taecyeon and actor Kim Soohyun have surfaced online.
The above photos as well as a video were shared on an online community site with the the title, ‘Kim Soohyun & Ok Taecyeon giving Suzy kisses‘.
The video was footage from the ‘Dream High‘ season 1 poster photo shoot that took place last year, featuring the main characters Suzy, Taecyeon, and Soohyun, and was recently posted, drawing attention.
Suzy played the role of Go Hyemi, the girl that caused a love triangle between Song Sam Dong (Kim Soo Hyun) & Jin Gook (Taecyeon), and the photo shoot pictorial expressed their complicated relationship.
The interactive movie ‘Hello‘ starring 2PM and miss A has finally been revealed via Korea Tourism Organization‘s website, www.ibuzzkorea.com.
In the video, the viewer becomes the main character and goes on a vacation to Korea for three days with the idol stars. The video highlights some of Korea’s most beautiful landmarks and the OST “Hello” was created specifically for this project.
In the online version, the viewer can decide in the beginning if they want to ‘travel’ to Korea with 2PM or miss A, and upload their own photos onto the site to ‘take’ their own photos with the stars.
The Korea Tourism Organization created the interactive movie as a part of a campaign to bring more tourism to Korea, and the video can easily be shared via social networking services such as Facebook, Renren, etc.
Following in member Min‘s footsteps, maknae Suzy will be debuting in her first movie, ‘Introduction to Architecture‘!
Directed by Lee Yong Ju, ’Introduction to Architecture’ is a romantic film starring several top-notch celebrities including Uhm Tae Woong, Han Ga In, and Lee Jae Hoon. The movie follows the love story of an architecture student (Uhm Tae Woong) who meets a student majoring in music (Han Ga In) during an ‘Introduction to Architecture’ class. He falls head over heels in love with her, and the experience turns into a memory of his first love.
Years later, the student becomes an official architect and meets his first love again when she visits his office as a client. Suzy and Lee Jae Hoon will be playing as the younger versions of the two main leads.
On October 19th, a representative of the movie shared, “Suzy and Lee Jae Hoon do not have a big part in the movie, but they will contribute to the film with their fresh image. Despite the fact that Suzy is a rookie, there is a lot of anticipation for her film debut.”
B2ST, miss A, U-Kiss, and G.NA will attend the ’2011 Asia Song Festival’.
On the 4th, KOFICE, a foundation for cultural industry contents, released additional acts in the line-up for the festival.
B2ST was selected as the group representing Korea, miss A was selected as the best new Asian singer, and U-Kiss and G.NA were selected as influential artists.
Thirteen top singers from six Asian countries will appear at the festival.
According to a recent report, there is estimated to be a total of 100 teams of boy and girl idol groups in the Korean mainstream music scene by the end of 2011. However, these groups are usually judged on the basis of popularity and their fans rather than by professionals. With that said, how would professionals rank the groups? 27 choreographers and dancers were asked to pick the groups with the best performances.
