Monitoring my traffic statistics recently I noticed that Bada is surging in the popularity rankings. I approve of that, because her second album is my favourite mainstream K-pop album of all time (or, at least, in my rather small collection). So, in my semi-regular round-up of celebrity news and pictures which have caught my eye over the past few weeks, Bada is going to have a post all to herself.
Like many of you, I’m a huge fan of PopSeoul. The site has completely demolished all competition in the celebrity blogosphere. Prolific in their posting, I don’t know how they keep it up. And their unique selling point: most if not all of the material is, as far as I can see, original, rather than copied verbatim from the Chosun. I say “they” partly because I don’t know whether it’s a he, she, or more than one person (the volume of material might suggest composite authorship). But I have to take issue with one thing. They don’t seem to like Bada very much. Most recently they decided they didn’t like the colour of the leggings she was modelling:
A couple of weeks ago they decided she looked like a drag queen.
And at the recent Hallyu Star Festival, Bada showed her stuff – but I’m not sure whether PopSeoul’s description of her legs as “athletic” is meant to be complimentary or not.
I suppose it’s only fair that if a singer is going to start doing things other than sing, then people are going to comment on attributes other than her vocal and musical talents (which I think are pretty strong). But to redress the balance, here’s a cute photo.
I’ve finally got around to ordering her third album from YesAsia. I hope it’s as good as her second. There will be a review coming soon.
I’ve got to agree with PopSeoul about the pudding basin hairdo though.
So keep visiting PopSeoul, as I know you will.
