Under-Rated K-Pop Group UKISS, WonderBoyz

South Korea is K-Pop capital, where new aspiring kids debuting and hoping to be in Kpop boy band and Kpop girl band group. There are many great Kpop group that kept themselves fresh such as boy band Shinhwa, who are active and popular even after debuting over 15 years ago. Many girl groups and boy groups have formed and broken up before making it on chart.

Life of Kpop star is hard with all training before debuting and working long hours, without days off after debuting are known case. Many in western world would call that slave contract but in K-Pop world that seems to be norm. Most Idols work very hard, have special fan meeting with their fans and generally soft spoken in real life based on their interviews.

As I have written in what is K-Pop article, that there many ways K-pop differs from other Music Genre from other popular music. There are 3 big star management companies such as;

  • SM Entertainment: Tts current roster of recording artists include Kangta, BoA, TVXQ, TRAX, The Grace, Super Junior, Zhang Liyin, Girls’ Generation, J-Min, Shinee, f(x), EXO and Henry, all of whom enjoy great success both domestically and internationally.
  • YG Entertainment: Its current roster of recording artists are known to be some of the biggest K-pop acts internationally. Big Bang, 2NE1, Epik High, Lee Hi, and PSY have proved to be the front runners.
  • JYP Entertainment: Label’s current roster of recording artists include Wonder Girls, JOO, 2AM, 2PM, Miss A, JJ Project, Baek Ah Yeon, 15& and Lee Sunmi.

Of course, there are many management companies that churn out many new kpop idol bands. Sometimes, there are great and some not so great singers and boyband get more media exposure due to either their management company or variety shows they do. There are some are talented but do not get enough media exposure or get awards even though they deserve it.

In my opinion, UKISS and WonderBoyz are two boy bands that do not get ENOUGH media love, as they are talented, great singer, dancer and come across friendly on interviews and other shows. JYJ is another group that do not get enough media exposure on Korean TV due to some issue from the past, most of these band survive and spread news through internet such as youtube, fan sites and blogs along with their management company.

UKISS K-Pop Boy Band:

crazyhair5South Korean boy band formed by NH Media in 2008. Their name is an acronym, standing for Ubiquitous Korean International idol Super Star. The group consists of Soohyun, Eli, Kiseop, Kevin, Hoon and AJ and three 3 ex members Dongho, Alexander and Kibum.  Their breakthrough hit was Man Man Ha Ni (2009) from their EP ContiUKiss. Since their debut, the group has released three full-length albums, seven extended plays and various singles. The group also participated in various TV reality shows and films.

UKISS had member leaving, and Kiseop joining, now finally settling as 6 members boy band group. They have members who can speak English well such as Eli, Kevin and AJ. Main vocals are Soohyun, Hoon and Kevin. They are good singers, dancers and rappers in group and have great song but they have yet to win (as of Jan 2014) any awards. I personally think they are one of the under-rated Kpop group. If you do not believe me, check out few of their song Music Video and Dance Practice and you will know what I am talking about, they deserve much more recognition for their talent.

wonderboyz2Wonder Boyz  is a Korean pop/Hip-Hop 4-member boy group that debuted in 2012 under ent102. Members are, Bak Chi Gi (Leader), Young Boy, K and Master One.  Very little is known about them about internet source but I already like their a few songs they have released and they are good, talented singers and dancers. I think they are another under-rated K-Pop boy band who needs more exposure so people can see how good they really are. See for your self in music video below.

So, what do you think of UKISS and WonderBoyz Group now? Do you think there are other Kpop group which are under-rated who deserve much more media exposures and love?
