So Hello Venus is Pledis' new girl group. This is the same company that has After School, Son Dambi, and Nu'est. Half the girls are from Pledis and half the girls are from another company called Fantiago. Pledis is taking over their music career, while Fantiago will manage their acting careers. I'm completely in love with this group already.

I noticed there are only five members in performances. What happened to the sixth?

I'm also curious as to Alice's computer programming skill.

Yoonjo injured the ligament in her leg a few days before they filmed the mv so she's been unable to dance/perform with them. They said she should be alright in 3-4 weeks, so she should hopefully be alright soon.
Also I just ordered their mini album so I'm really really excited.

Wow, they are gorgeous girls, and you can actually tell them apart really well unlike most recent Korean groups. I've been meaning to check this out since I saw it at the Kpop store the other day, I guess I'll listen. I know there's a good chance I'll regret it, but lets go:



Hello is pretty good, it actually has organic instruments and a pretty heavy rock feel, pretty rare for Korea. I can do without the rapping, but the song is good.

Venus is effing fantastic. This makes me want to buy the mini-album if for nothing else.

Damn, even the slow song is good and not overly corny and boring. I don't even need to listen to the last song.

Well, the last song is awesome too, even if the arrangement screams "generic Kpop," the songwriting sounds more like Jpop. Consider this CD bought.



Why are mini-albums in Korea usually pretty amazing and then the full albums suck ass?

They bait you with the good stuff and then reel you in with the crap. Because some people will buy anything for their favorite group. Posted Image

My very first thought of this group was: Lime is really, really hot.
My first impression of their song was that it sounds really nice. And I still keep hearing "Fuck you" at 0:30.

I think "Hello Venus" is a stupid name and they should have switched their group name with their first single's title.

Well their name is supposed to be a play on words. It's heLO VEnus. They write the love part in a different color.

They're all knockouts, as far as I'm concerned, but I like Alice and Nara the most, but Lime and Yoonjo definitely have a unique cuteness/hotness to them that's pretty exceptional and makes them stand out quite a bit. The first episode of that show was really entertaining, though these kinds of shows are pretty hit or miss for later episodes being very interesting, so don't know if its worth trying to follow or if the subs community will even keep up with it.

I think "Hello Venus" is a stupid name

Do you also think "Hello! Project" is a stupid name? :P

The others aren't ugly, but 95% of K-Pop idols aren't ugly. lol
Yoo Ara has weird empty eyes in the video imho.

Even if it might just have been a rethorical question...
I never actually thought about "Hello! Project".
But I think it serves it's purpose for idols that are nearer to their fans and more down-to-earth than the idols that came before H!P.
But Tsunku loves arbitrary "!" in his song titles, so that's kinda his fetish I guess.

This is true, since plastic surgery does wonders and outside of Southern California, South Korea is the world's #1 hotspot for it. But there's still a difference between "I look like everyone else" pretty *cough*SNSD*cough* and actually being uniquely pretty. Ara looks kinda weird in certain shots, but she definitely has a kind of leader personality from what I've seen and is still pretty, despite looking off sometimes.

AEUG likes a song I love and Ap and I agree on which member of a group is hottest. What strange parallel universe is this?

That'd happen more often if you wouldn't always root for the "special member". :whistling: :wink:

EDIT:
The blonde one looks very similar to one of the Dal Shabet girls (I don't know their names).

So far, I think Ara is really pretty, but yeah, none of them are ugly either. :lol: I like Lime the best, but I'm not sure if that's just her awesome name and hair color doing it. I'm actually not that taken with any of their songs, but I just really like them already for some reason.

Just spent some time getting to know this group. Commence fan mode. <3 I don't know who to stan yet though.

Mini Review -
01. I like the instrumental, but not so much anything else.
02. This song. So sugary sweet pure pop goodness! I love it!
03. Oh, a slow song. But it's not that bad, amazingly. I don't know how often I'll listen to it because it doesn't fall under the "amazing slow song" playlist, but it's not so boring I would skip it when the album plays.
04. Love this song too!

This is a great mini and a great debut.

Love Appeal and Venus are amazing and I love them. Love Appeal I think I like more. The part where they say, Hey I'm not that kind of girl really get's stuck in my head. That beat! Nananana~ You can never go wrong with some nananas!

I thought it was a solid mini, but not really an amazing one. But a lot of groups get better material over time, in my opinion, so hopefully they will too.

I've now found this to be the exact opposite most of the time with Kpop, except with Girl's Day. They started out atrocious but got amazing after like 3 years. Most of them start out pretty good and then turn to utter generic shit.

The idea is that they start out with the cheapest songwriters, making that old Kpop sound, and then get better, more expensive (mainstream) ones as they go along.

I'm probably the only one who doesn't like the lead song, so I'm kiiinda hoping that's the case with this group 'cause I wanna like them a lot. Also, I hope Lime doesn't end up Amber 2.0 with the cool image but only being the group rapper. I want her to sing. :hmph:

I should've said 2, I was just overshooting my estimation of how long they'd been around since I was too lazy to actually check the dates.

This is pretty much what I have gathered.

Lime does sing. She has singing lines in all their songs.

Here are some color coded lyrics. Not sure how right the color coding is but they are usually pretty good.

Coincidentally, according to wikipedia, they seem to have some new stuff coming up in the next 2~3 weeks.
