So when I posted on A-One, I think I alluded to these guys, but in general I’ve blocked them out of my mind like they never existed. However their first MV is the first look at All’s Well Ends Well 2009, which was the third most anticipated Chinese movie of the holiday season. Creepy isn’t it? The look at All’s Well Ends Well starts a while in…is it worth going through the pink sugary sweetness to get to that and Louis Koo? I’ll let you decide.
Feng Yun Bang – Happy New Year 2009 (Fixed Audio Version)
This one has seven? members. I believe they are from a Beijing-based company. When you think about how many of these boybands are Beijing-based it’s pretty sad considering Beijing is China’s rock and roll epicenter. I would tentatively say that they’re another Chinese boyband for the count, AGAIN, but they’re not trying so much the flashy song and dance technique though as much as cute, which at this point is almost refreshing. What can I say? China’s music scene has completely gone off its rocker. When you pump boybands out faster than South Korea, there’s really something drastically wrong.
I can’t hate them too much… my Wang Yuexin approves of them and at least they have a Chinese name. That boy in the glasses is adorable too…reminds me of a cute turtle for some reason. When A-One debuts we’re so doing a poll on these new boybands…I’m pretty sure this is the last one for 2008 but you never know. One can only hope…since at this point four..five? (I’ve seriously lost count) have debuted in the past two months.
And yes, I realize the video cuts off in the middle with its sound. Couldn’t find anything better. I think it’s a sign.
And remember when I said I wished the boybands would dress up in Hanfu? This wasn’t what I had in mind:
Tang Dynasty never looked so decadent.
