The MYX MAG – KPOP Edition will be available in magazine stores here, maybe by next week. And since, this issue is kinda about KPOP, many of you are interested because it’s not mainly about one artist you can order from us and buy one for you. Of course, this is open for fans who live abroad because Filipinos can always buy from a mall nearby, since it’s available NATIONWIDE. But for certain reasons, we can always open it for Philippine residents as well (see FAQ).
There will be a kpop event at the SM Mall Of Asia, June 9, 2010, 4 PM. And whoever attends that can have the issue before anyone else.
And since, I cannot attend that event. I shall have to wait till it hits the market. So the process will be this way, i’ll wait for it to be released and then buy just like anyone else. It’s no biggie since our target is the international fans out there.
So here are the possible contents and the price of the magazine. Continue reading

Thank you to Hey also from our chatbox for the tip <3
CNBLUE is probably the next rookie group to ever rock KPOP. I definitely love this group, because
CNBLUE [Codename Blue] was an indie band that have released 2 mini-albums before they officially debuted to KPOP. They are popular in Japan and now they are yet to dominate Korea.
New genre? Well last year mainstream KPOP was dominated with Autotune, bubblegum songs, GIRL GROUPS most especially and hiphop/funk music . When these guys came to the scene they just were different from everyone that they made me like them. Gaaah, I don’t know how to explain it but it was the similar feeling when 2NE1 came to the KPOP world. Breaking the cutesy girl group trend of 2008 and giving us the fierce and bad girl kind of image.
They have 4 amazingly good looking members.

Despite having Jung Yong Hwa (Shinwoo in YAB) to help them with their publicity you just can’t hide that the boys are equally talented in their very own way. But they said for themselves that they don’t want to dance and can’t imagine themselves dancing. Just like what the normal idol group these days. Idk, but I think it’s better that way. No one can play an instrument that well either. They just want to be apart from everyone else imo.
Okay, on to the song review. This is for siaheer who requested us to comment on the song. Sorry but I have to introduce the group first. Haha. It wasn’t too hard for me though because I stalk them. *shy*
Group FT Island’s member Lee HongKi has caused a topic amongst fans for doing a teary selca.
Recently on various online noticeboards, photos of HongKi doing what seems like a parody of 2NE1 Sandara Park’s teary selca has roused much attention from fans.
In the photos revealed, HongKi was seen attaching 2 strips of tissue and pretending to be crying, and he was also spotted with the palm tree hair which Sandara Park has worn for her mobile phone CF.
Netizens’ responses were, “He is like a character from manga. Really cute”, “HongKi’s expression is really awesome”, “How about taking a teary selca with Sandara together?” etc.
The last comment from netizens, they said how about a teary selca together?? omo, i’m anticipating on that. how about a collab with this concept haha. omo;; i’m so excited for it, so much imagination in my mind. and Minhwan will be there too; hehehe <3.
