Boyfriend and Bora (Sistar)

I think it’s really interesting how Bora did BOYFRIEND “Bounce” and Boyfriend did SISTAR‘s (girl group Bora is part of) “Touch my Body”.

I believe it’ll be really cool to see more collaborations like this happening between member(s) and group(s) within the S.Korea [South Korea] entertainment industry.

How about musical theatre actors/actress collab with K-pop groups/singers?

I’ll even count Joo Won as part of the musical theatre team simply because he was a musical theatre actor before he became a drama/movie actor.

I wouldn’t count Tiffany or someone that was an Idol before they became an musical actor.

I will count Eunjung and other idols who was originally trained to be an actor/musical actor.

Terms you may not know

Dance cover: is when someone takes another’s choreography and films/performs it themselves. WHILE making it clear to everyone that the choreography is indeed a COVER and not something they made themselves.

S.Korea: A shorterned version of South Korea. A country located within the continent of Asia. This country is considered part of East Asia.

Recently, people from around the world have been focusing on this country. This large focus has been dubbed as the “Hallyu Wave”.

Mostly the focus is on the country’s pop culture industry mainly the drama (tv shows, kinda of like soap operas), music, fashion, video games and beauty.

A low focus is on the country’s comic books and animation, though they are exported out of the country. Many of S.Korea’s comic books are mislabeled as “Manga” (Japanese comic books) so they can be sold due to the high popularity of manga.

The “Hallyu Wave” is said to have begun sometime in the 1990s when S.Korea first began exporting music to places such as China and Japan.

Namie Amuro Collaborations

I’m not a huge Namie Amuro fan. But I don’t dislike her either. I can’t help but notice though, the different people who she has collaborated with. I really like a lot of her collaborations as they seem to blend in the different styles of the artists together well.
The newest one:
Namie Amuro and Crystal Kay “Revolution”

I’m kind of glad that in this video Crystal Kay seems to have stopped her whole Yokohama ratchet rap or whatever it’s called. That one music style you can see in “Dum Ditty Dumb”. I appreciate that she combined elements of traditional of Japanese music with modern music. I also love the whole animation thing but I do not like the style.
(Though I do know this could all be because it’s a collaboration)
3 years ago she collabled with S.Korean girl group After School to make “Make it Happen”:

And during this year she collabled with Jolin Tsai

Jolin Tsai the most popular Taiwanese singer. “I’m not Yours” is a very dancey song.

M-flo and Namie Amuro “Luvotomy”

“Black Out”(Which is Verbal feat. Lil Wayne and Namie Amuro. Released in 2011)
There is a video for this one. I’m just not going to show it because I’m not a huge Lil Wayne fan additionally

At this rate I feel like Namie Amuro is just going to collaborate with artist from almost every continent.
I am sincerely hoping she does collaborations with people like Thailand’s Kratae. And artists from Vietnam, Laos, India and more! Maybe even collaborate with a U.S, Australian and or U.K artist?
