SunMi Performs Intimidating Stage with Reversed Gender Dancer

Every couple performances in K-Pop stage seems to be done with a different gender. When the artist is a woman, the dancer is a man. If the artist is a man, the dancer is a woman. This custom was never broken especially stages where performances are intimate or sexual.

SunMi had her last stage of ‘Gashina’ in SBS Inkigayo. ‘Gashina’ made such a huge hit both outside and inside Korea. SunMi’s reputation as a solo artist has become quite firm due to this comeback. She was able to pull off the concept of ‘Gashina’ so perfectly, no one could be ever thought of to replace her. Her stages were stimulating and caught people’s attention, even those who weren’t a fan of her.

Every stage, she made a new record of people admiring her. However, it was the last stage that truly made an impact. She has performed with a male partner through the stages of this comeback, until the last stage. Her partner was a lady this time.

The change of gender in her dancing partner made her bolder. She did her physically intimate actions more widely and sexually. Her moves with her partner were so realistic since the space between the two were gone (unlike when she was dancing with a male partner). Fans picked this stage as the legendary stage of SunMi.

A lot of people say, “Even though I am straight, I almost fell for her in a sexual way’ after they have watched the stage. It’s pretty hard not to feel that way when an intimidating woman as SunMi come so close.

Workplace Turns to Fan Meeting for PRISTIN As SunMi Walked In

There are three things that are impossible to hide. Sneeze, Poverty, and Love. The feeling of love is uncontrollable by ration, it acts on its own.

We cannot hide our joy when we see our most beloved ones. We cannot stop ourselves from empathizing when something great happened to our loved ones. We also, cannot hide the love itself because it just shows in the way we look at our most beloved ones. 

Recently fans have found a great love shown by PRISTIN to SunMi. It was actually hard not to notice their crush over her because they had no notice of thing around them but only SunMi.  

The music broadcast programs used to be PRISTIN’s workplace. A workplace isn’t a place where we feel so much enthusiasm nor inspiration. (We love our work, sure, but WORKPLACE is,,,a different thing:P)

However, the workplace of PRINSTIN turned into a fan meeting as soon as SunMi walked in.

Nop, not even “as” but “before as her music was played.” PRISTIN started dancing to SunMi’s new music ‘Gashina’ while they were on their way to the music broadcast.  

Even while they were hosting the program… they CANNOT take their eyes off of her!

SunMi won the week’s music chart and this happens.

You see what I mean when I say, Love cannot be hidden? I mean, yes, they did not even try to hide it. How can they?  They are overwhelmed by her presence.

SunMi Opens Up On Life After JYP Entertainment

Former member of ‘Wondergirls‘, SunMi has made quite a spectacular entrance back to the K-Pop scene with her debut single ‘Gashina’.

Like Us on Facebook

After leaving JYP Entertainment and signing with MakeUs Entertainment, she seems to be doing well in making a name for herself as a solo artist. This is evident as her single ‘Gashina’ has reached #3 on the World Digital Song Sales, making it the best selling K-Pop record in the United States. We’ve seen idols leave their associated groups and go solo before, but besides an exceptional few such as G-Dragon, Taeyang, or Jay Park, none have seemed to be able to consistently stay relevant in the mainstream music market in the long run. Now that she has come back into the picture with a bang and gained momentum, it’s only logical to wonder what is next for the chic K-Pop sex symbol.

When asked about her departure from JYP Entertainment, she stated  “Make Us Entertainment’s open minded artist system was something I felt that I needed as an artist. JYP Entertainment has an extremely systematic artist system and the vibe is much different.  Of course, that doesn’t mean I can do whatever I want without having to ask anyone at Make Us Entertainment. There are meetings and discussions before any decision is finalized.” She has also said that comparing the two entertainment companies is similar to comparing a mother to a father. Her departure from her former parent company doesn’t seem to in any way affect their current relationship status at the moment.  Additionally, she continues to keep in touch with a few prominent figures in JYP Entertainment including JYP the man himself, and other former members of Wondergirls. It has also been reported that JYP is planning to invite the ‘Gashina’ singer to an episode of his TV show ‘Party People’. It’s good to know that the relationship between them hasn’t turned sour at all yet, like the way it did with bad boy ‘Mommae’ singer Jay Park.

She revealed on “LieV” that after staying under the radar for nearly three and a half years, it was difficult for her to simply just jump back into the music scene. She went on to say that she had to challenge herself and plan thoughtfully in terms of the direction in which she wanted to steer towards for her artistry. The beat for ‘Gashina’, especially the intro, inspired her the moment she heard it and she stated the recording process was smooth and natural. She is currently planning to do everything she has always wanted to try musically and do things differently than when she was in Wondergirls. 

W Korea

It is no doubt difficult for any music artist or idol to leave their safety zone and challenge themselves to do something different, especially alone. But from what we have heard so far, it is highly likely that she is preparing a follow-up single after ‘Gashina’, and it only makes sense to keep going after a momentum has been created.

For this week’s Korean Fashion Finds, we’re going behind some of our favorite designer items from “Gashina.” Be warned – it’s going to be a droolfest!

First up, we’re going to check out items SunMi wore from US streetwear brand UNIF‘s collaboration with Japanese supermodel Kiko Mizuhara.

In a promotional still from the music video, you can get a closer look at the shirt, which is made from a ribbed, sweater material. The pastel stripe pattern and the embroidered butterfly design give a nod to the babydoll style of the mid-to-late 90s, and we love the way her bright pink blush and sky blue shadow add even more playfulness to the full look.

The t-shirt is actually a part of Japanese supermodel Kiko Mizuhara’s collaboration collection with streetwear brand UNIF. The Kiko X UNIF Frost Top might be currently sold out through the brand, but internet savvy fashionistas can easily find the top through various third party online stores.

However, one item that’s still available through the line is the ultra-slinky Kiko x UNIF Butterfly Mini Dress, which SunMi literally rolls around in during another scene of the music video.

The style gives the LBD a very retro upgrade with adorable butterfly detail on the straps. Get it while it’s haute!

Next up, we have SunMi’s all-red look centered around a beautiful sailor-inspired dress, designed by Korean fashion label The Centaur.

Similar to SunMi’s “Full Moon” music video, the outfit is very romantic, lacy, and full of monochromatic drama. It’s a little bit flamenco, a little bit storybook, and a whole lot of glamour, making it one of our favorite looks from the video.

The dress is called The Quite Lady Dress and is one of the highlight items of their S/S 2017 collection. Double-breasted and embroidered with ranchero-style roses, it was one of Seoul Fashion Week’s most coveted items, seen on many Korean celebrities, include the equally fashionable Krystal of f(x).

For our last look, we’re going to look at SunMi’s simple yet unconventional skirt look, finished off with a Swarovski crystal necklace and a pleated skirt from Jeremy Scott.

In a still from the music video, we get a closer look at the entire outfit. To balance out the loud design of the skirt, SunMi wears a simple black tank and silver jewelry. To emphasize the block color look (and to add an element of fun), she wears deep red lipstick in a similar shade to what the face on her skirt is wearing.

To those of you familiar with American designer Jeremy Scott, it should be no surprise that the skirt was one of his designs. The Jeremy Scott Face Print Pleated Skirt reminds us very much of the loud styles he put 2NE1 in for their “New Evolution World Tour,” where he served as the girls’ costume designer.

We are also huge fans of SunMi’s ultra-glam statement necklace, Swarovski’s Fit Crystal Choker, which was paired with a few other silver chokers of similar designs to create a mixed media texture to the look.

SunMi, who recently dropped a new song ‘Gashina‘ is getting tremendous popularity for her attractive song and performance. And now it’s time to hear HyunA’s comeback song ‘BABE‘ on August 29th. It’s only a week difference. We are lucky to see them performance gorgeously hot stages at the same time. All the fans thought that there would be no more coincidence after the comeback at the same period of time. However, Kpopmap found much more common points between these beauties!

Let’s trace their lovable history and see how similar they are!

 

1. Wonder Girls

Both of them, SunMi and HyunA are the former members of Wonder Girls. They are original members so could sing ‘Irony‘, which is the debut song of Wonder Girls.

2. Withdrawal from Wonder Girls

3. Solo Artists

HyunA and SunMi are showing their successful careers as solo artists from idol groups. Moreover, they have the same concept, which is the sexy concept and both of them are 92-borners. So it’s like a rival in a positive way.

4.  Perfect Proportion 

HyunA has been called as ‘Bagel Dol’, which means ‘Woman with baby face and glamorous body’ in Korean buzzword. The reason of it was her perfect proportion despite her short height. SunMi also has been spotlighted for her nice body shape. Her leg length was revealed as 74.6cm(her height is 166cm), so it’s pretty long leg to hardly believe.

5. Sexy but actually whimsy

Even their personalities are similar. Both of them are sexy but whimsy. YeEun portrayed SunMi, “Bright but she’s weird”. In addition, HyunA is well known as her whimsy charm.
