Taking a R-eality check

New idol group R-eal is making heads turn even before they debut. They appeared on a popular Japanese radio broadcast earlier, and tried to differentiate themselves from other idol groups saying that they want to focus on real (hence the name) issues.

The internet seems to already be abuzz with news about these guys. Seeing the success of débutante idol group SHINee, many netizens are anticipating similar success for R-eal.

Sigh… YET another idol group/boy band/whatever…

Let’s just hope it’s a passing phase, like last year, when around this time, the TV, internet and every other form of media was inundated with an overdose of so called sexy divas (Chae Yeon, Ivy, Lee Hyori, Seo In yeong etc).

I just hope it doesn’t happen again…

Ballad lovers in for a treat!

Balladeers Sung Si Kyung and Clazziquai’s Alex are all set to release their (sixth and first, respectively) latest albums this month. Sung Si Kyung’s sixth will be out by June 16 and Alex’s debut album titled ‘My Vintage Romance’ will come out by the 12th of this month.

R&B/Ballad duo J-Walk will also be coming out with their third album – ‘My Love’ by June 23rd (quite a while to go)…

Other anticipated releases this month, are Pop idol group Battle’s 3rd single ‘Step by Step’, which is due by June 12, and Kim Hyun Jung’s Vol.8 – In N Out, which is anticipated to release by June 16.

Another newly formed (so to speak, really) idol group Super Junior H (Sigh… another sub-group, are they going to exhaust all the letters of the alphabet or what?) is all set to release their first Mini album Cooking, Cooking? by June 10. I haven’t yet managed to figure out specifically the ‘theme’ behind this sub-group, eg. SuJu KRY is a ballad group, SuJu T sings Trot music, but SuJu Happy? Only time will tell I guess…

Here is a look at their album cover:

Fruity, to say the least…
