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.
Check out the video clip below. Perhaps JYJ’s Telisha-hatin’ fans don’t have anything to worry about. And yes yes I know that Korean guys, by culture, are more touchy and affectionate with each other. Quite noted. I’m not trying to hurt anybody…just sayin’…lol…
JYJ member Micky Yoochun is currently suffering from shingles as a result of overwork and stress, as reported by his management team rep. It must be really tough for these entertainers to take care of their health when they are trying to a fault to please their group members, managers, entertainment, record and promotion companies, and most of all fans. To Micky: Your health is much more important than pleasing others. Please take care of yourself and get well soon! You have our full support! We will keep an eye on you through your (hopefully) speedy recovery! ^^
Check out the radio interview clip below of Telisha Shaw, a 27-year-old American dancer who has toured with JYJ and who’s supposed romantic relationship with JYJ member Junsu, has been at the center of controversy among the fans. So…are Telisha and Junsu dating, or are they not? I think this interview will put all wonder to rest.
Thanks to cello33 for the clip tip!
Check out this fanmade video of JYJ’s Junsu and American dancer Telisha, affectionately dubbed by finger-crossing fans as “Telisu”. I liked JYJ’s song “Be My Girl” on first listen. Love the groove, and it definitely becomes JYJ.
Thanks to AJ for putting this lovely video together and sharing it with all of us! Happy Friday everyone!
If there is such a thing…anyway, it just seems like so much fun 🙂
