And I can’t say that blame her one iota. K-pop is a force to be reckoned with, and although it isn’t for everyone, it’s far-reaching global appeal is a true anomaly in this mostly Western-influenced planet. I too, have been bitten by the K-pop bug. But this is about Telisha Shaw, aka Telisa, a 32-year-old African-American dancer/entertainer from Tennessee on a mission. Her mission, and she’s chosen to accept with unabashed gusto, is to be the first black K-pop star. How awesome is that? Check out her interview with asiapacificarts.usc.edu here. She discusses her introduction to K-pop through working with male trio JYJ, as well as her plans for conquering the K-pop world.
Yes I know this is old..but I just found out about it! ^^
Youtube star Natalie White aka Pumashock had created quite a buzz among South Koreans and netizens with her remakes and covers of popular K-pop songs. So much so, that she was invited to appear on a South Korean variety show called “StarKing”, in which she performed several songs, among them “U Go Girl” by Hyori Lee, and even met 2PM hottie Nichkhun, who also appeared on the show a few years back. Check out a clip of her appearance here. How awesome is this?! We gotta keep an eye on this chick!
