Really, when I read the news, I was excited. Like ^o^ excited. I am never ^o^ excited. I am rarely ^^, so ^o^ is pretty strong!
- ‘Blush’ will focus on singing English. This means they definitely are focusing on a global audience.
- Even though they will focus on English, each member will get a chance to sing in her native language as the main vocalist. This is so fair! I’m crying of excitement! Though Korean groups are featuring Chinese trainees more and more, they rarely get to sing Chinese. Furthermore, the concept of one group ruling the Philippines, India, China, Korea, and Japan is tantalizing to budding-dictator-Michelle.
- They are in L.A. right now, doing collaborations. This definitely definitely means they are shooting for the world; hopefully their talent is up to par. Sorry to break you out of your denial, but all the good music that South Korea copies is being made in the US.
- ‘Blush’ will not be using auto-tune. There. They said it upfront. They are not using auto-tune. This is a jibe at the kpop industry, which auto-tunes anything and everything and during live performances, you can never be sure if they aren’t just lip-syncing. Auto-tune is for pretty-face-idols, not for hardcore Pan-Asia superstars! Obviously.
- ‘Blush’ will debut in 3-4 months, and before their debut, a reality show will be aired, documenting their progress. I’m very interested in this, because unless they all having a working knowledge of English, how will these girls work together? Live together? How will their cultures collide and collaborate?
FarWest Entertainment has definitely got me interested and excited. However, this company, though sleek, looks somewhat green, and though S.M. Entertainment is a slave plantation (see DBSK), it’s established, and it knows what works. And S.M. works spectacularly. Anyone seen SNSD’s Visual Dreams? I think I’m going to have incubi tonight.
