The meaning of the K–Pop girl group’s name, Black Pink, is that the color pink is commonly used to portray prettiness, but BlackPink means to say that pretty isn’t everything, and also symbolizes that this is a group that is not only beautiful but talented. Very deep.

HyunA has been mentioned a few times but never featured. Time to rectify that.
Bubalabobo thought we should look at Yoona of Girls Generation/SNSD fame. I confess I thought we had featured them before but I can’t find the post, and she definitely deserves to be in the spotlight.
Continuing in the same vein as my first post, I present to you all the other reason behind my intrigue with K-pop, and that is Wang FeiFei.
Hello all. I’ve been a big fan of this website since I first discovered it back in 2005 while I was in college. Being that this is my first ever post on Asian Sirens, I thought it appropriate to introduce a stunner that I’ve been enamored with for quite some time…
While I’m not much of a fan of manufactured pop music, there was something about Korean act KARA that piqued my curiosity when I first Googled them on Travis’ advice…
This is another excellent guest post from our resident metalhead Elric —the Doc
Ji-In Cho (조지인, born December 30, 1976 in Leverkusen) is a German heavy metal singer of Korean descent. She has been the lead vocalist and pianist of the symphonic metal band Krypteria since December 2004.
Singing duo As One got their start in the US, but their national fame is in Korea. Chae Da-hee and Lee Min-young, better known as Crystal (short hair) and Min (long hair), are both natives of the Los Angeles area (Crystal being born there and Min moving there as an infant), and were discovered there by a Korean artist who got them signed with a record label in Korea, where they recorded and released their debut album Day By Day in 1999.
They’ve been going strong as a duo ever since and, as someone who’s had the pleasure of meeting them both, I can say they’re just as charming and as close as they appear to be in the above 2006 video for their version of “Jingle Bell Rock.” The ladies currently host their own radio show, K-Popular on TBS eFM radio. Happy Holidays!
Korean singer and actress Uee shows some retro dance moves in this recent commercial for Chum-Churum Cool soju. The 25 year-old siren is best known as a member of the girl group After School, but may be the next member of the group to “graduate” as she already has a solo single and a couple of acting awards under her belt. She’s currently a cast member of the SBS variety show Running Man and reality show Barefooted Friends.
For those interested; at around the 30-second mark, she says “Don’t you know the Cool Shot dance?” and the song she’s dancing to is “Chick Habit” by April March.
