“TVXQ’s MIROTIC is hard to sing along”

America’s singer Natalie a.k.a Pumashock did a cover of SNSD’s Gee using R&B style making it a hot topic online with over million views on her youtube. For Natalie, TVXQ’s MIROTIC is the hardest to sing along.
On the 4th, Natalie participated a press conference held by Seoul’s Broadcasting System (SBS). That had caused a rise of popularity for her, acknowledging how it feels to be a Korean artist. Natalie said, “MIROTIC’s lyrics are long, the tempo is too fast so it’s hard to take in”. She also mentioned that she decided to sing ‘Gee’ it’s because the song gave her an urge to dance, so that caught her attention/interest.

After listening to ‘Energy’, she expressed that she is happy a musician like BoA is crossing over to America’s music industry. Natalie appraised Star King’s MC Kang Ho Dong as “Best Dresser”, Shinwa is her favorite group, even indicated her love for Kpop music. Natalie will participate on Star King on 7th this month. This again will make her a hot topic.

[News] The Study of Mirotic

Posted in News with tags , on February 24, 2009 by kenkyu


A certain High School in China used a Mirotic article as their comprehension passage.

Here’s the passage:

FINALLY, the wait is over. Much to the excitement of fans, South Korean boy band Dong Bang Shin Ki released their new album, Mirotic, on September 29. Once again, the five boys have displayed their appeal (吸引力) with powerful beats (节拍) and memorable tunes (曲调).
The title of the leading song, Mirotic, comes from the Korean word “miro” which means “maze” (迷宫) and the English suffix (后缀)”tic”.
“It is meant to describe the kind of feeling one has when he falls in love with someone at first sight ” said member U-Know (郑允浩). “It’s like being trapped in a maze.”

It is reported that the album has sold 90,000 copies two days after its release. It has risen to No 1 on the weekly chart in South Korea.
While you enjoy the catchy song, don’t miss the band’s trademark dancing moves. This time Dong Bang Shin Ki worked with famous dance choreographer (舞蹈编排) Kenny Wormald, who once cooperated with American pop stars including Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera.
The band began working on the new record in early 2007 and didn’t finish until June this year.
“We have plunged (投入) ourselves into the producing work. We see the album as an opportunity to show our fans that we have made progress on a daily basis, ” said member Xiah (金俊秀). “We won’t let them down.”

It is this aspiring (有抱负的) attitude that keeps the band going in the highly competitive entertainment world. The band never sets boundaries (边界) to their music styles. Since their 2003 debut (首次登台), they have tried pop, R&B and ballads (民歌). After winning the hearts of thousands of teenagers across Asia, they haven’t slow down. This year, Dong Bang Shin Ki has starred in two TV.
