After a very successful special K-pop episode of the MISTA Fashion Blog, the fans became immediately hungry for more and voted for another installment of this lifestyle and fashion online series. Yes, you guessed it right, the time for another K-pop edition of MISTA Fashion Blog is here. This time, the Slovak popstar called MISTA talked about some of the most popular Korean boy bands, their most notable hit songs, music videos, signature features and styling diversities.
K-Pop fans from Slovakia and Czech republic participated in an online poll at the Asianstyle.cz website, where they had a unique chance to vote for their most beloved boy bands that were to be featured in the current episode of the MISTA Fashion Blog. Their voices were heard and the top 3 boy bands that were mentioned in the blog were B.A.P, BIGBANG and SHINee.
When introducing B.A.P in her blog, MISTA mentioned their “badass” and “rockish” concept that blends elements of hip hop, rock and electro in their music and fashion style. In addition, MISTA and her fellow K-pop friends praised B.A.P in terms of their rocket rise in popularity within a single year since their debut. When mentioning the uniqueness of B.A.P, they couldn’t go without highlighting Zelo’s famous haircut or his top class rapping skills. In addition, the Matoki rabbits that impersonate individual group members were mentioned as inseparable part of what B.A.P is to their fans worldwide.
The second boy band that MISTA introduced to possible future K-pop fans were the 2011 MTV EMA winners, the “fantastic-crayon-alive” guys from BIG BANG. It’s a fact that in Korea, they rank as THE trend-setting boy group. That’s why this episode of the Fashion blog depicted their constantly changing hairstyles and outfits, which can be seen in a number of music videos like Fantastic Baby or Tonight.
Their international recognition was also mentioned, because of several cooperation with western artists, live shows in Europe and because of the YG entertainment agency that also has the world superstar PSY under its wings.
When talking about the third group – SHINee, MISTA focused on their distinctive music style and a rather cute and modest concept. The videos for their smash hit Lucifer and a more recent Why so serious were mentioned as showcasing their extraordinary dance skills and unique mixtures of several musical styles.
The members of SHINee were also mentioned as being multitalented, particularly Minho who appeared in several K-dramas.
Mentioning talents and trends in Korea, the team of MISTA Fashion Blog also covered the sasaeng phenomenon and talked about this extreme fan devotion that many idols have to deal with. Tackling the area of idol lives, MISTA briefly mentioned the pre-debut process of “idol-making” and the hard work that each K-pop trainee needs to go through before evolving into an entertainment icon.
By introducing K-pop to her fans and followers in this way, MISTA tries to contribute to the overall recognition of this bursting cultural phenomenon, presenting new aspects of fashion and lifestyle still unknown but gradually more enjoyed by many in our European region. Lets wish her best of luck in some other future K-pop ventures 🙂
