Here are some pictures of a cute girl from Guangxi province, China. I think she's an ethnic minority. Maybe she is ethnic Yao (瑶族) or ethnic Zhuang (壮族), I'm not too sure. Whatever the case, she is super cute and a has natural beauty about her.
Got this link sent to me by someone. It's an all-female quintet from North Korea's Moranbong Band singing Go Study... or at least that is what the Chinese lyric translation says. My Chinese is not too good, but some of the translated Chinese lyrics says something like "go study for the sake of our country".
The music sounds like 1980's Soviet music mixed with old-school Korean feel. But I like it. It's quite lively. The girls performed well.
Here are some photos of Mongolian model Anuka Anundari from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Some of Anuka's pictures have a cutesy Kpop girl look. That's because she's quite young and secondly, there is quite a profound Korean pop culture influence in Mongolia. I wonder how her looks will develop as she matures... she could turn out to be a real badass model.
Hope you enjoy the pictures. Anuka is a really pretty girl )))).
Here are some pictures of a cute 20 year-old Chinese Kazakh girl from Xinjiang. Oh, and to prevent any misunderstanding and confusion, what I mean by "Chinese Kazakh girl" is that she is ethnic Kazakh from China. According to Wikipedia, there is an estimate of 1,500,000 ethnic Kazakhs in China. Most Kazakhs live in Xinjiang province, the westernmost frontier in China.
Looks like this Chinese Kazakh girl has has adopted the Chinese media standard of beauty to a tee. The Chinese media standard of beauty emphasizes on cuteness, big innocent eyes, and doll-like poses. And that is what this girl is doing! What a shocker!!! Lol. I suppose that most Mainland Chinese men - possibly Hong Kong and Taiwanese men too to some extent - will find this dolly beauty extremely attractive.
Kazakhs from Kazakhstan love to put slideshows Kazakh girls on Youtube to showcase their beauties to the world. From what I have seen, Kazakh girls present themselves in a totally different fashion than Chinese girls. Kazakh girls tend to follow Russian or European fashion trends whereas Chinese girls tend to follow Japanese or Korean trends.
I also made a slideshow of her pictures just for kicks. I am extremely curious about how Kazakhs would react to seeing a cutesy doll-like Kazakh girl because in Kazakhstan that's not the style of the girls at all.
A new female pop band From Taiwan TOFFEE did a remix of Ye Lai Xiang (夜来香), a classic Chinese song covered by many female Chinese artists about all the sweet perfumes and fragrances during the night. What sets this female pop band apart is that they always incorporate traditional Chinese instruments in their music such as the guzheng and the pipa. In this particular remix of Ye Lai Xiang TOFFEE incorporates not only Chinese classical instruments but also modern electro to re-invigorate this timeless Chinese classic.
The rapper in this song MC GAWEED, sounds like he's a Far East Movement reject. He does really crappy poppy raps and lacks the energy in his voice to get me hyped up (that's the whole point of rap anyways right? Otherwise, why bother rapping?).
The music itself is not bad at all but the music video on the other hand is really good and aesthetically pleasing. It includes a lot of Chinese elements yay!
I'm posting this for the haha or WTF factor.
23 year old Yuki looks like your typical ordinary Japanese girl who is quite pretty.
I couldn't even tell that she' a local Singaporean. If she kept her lips sealed I would have thought she was a Japanese girl from Japan. But once she opened her mouth and started to talk, the cat was out of the bag and all the Singlish accent came pouring out lol.
I can't believe that........I'm finally jumping on the Agnes Monica bandwagon ha ha!
Seeing Agnes Monica performing Shake It Off at the 2011 South East Asian Games Closing Ceremony has got to be one of the MOST EPIC performances I have seen.
I love all the Indonesian references in the music, in the dance styles, and in the freaky looking Balinese masks in the giant LED screen in background. I love it! It's sooooo awesome! Agnes Monica rocks! She's gonna go big!
I kinda like this song Xiexie Zai LianLuo by Taiwanese singer Jeannie Hsieh (謝金燕). It has a sexy and mature feel to it. The title means something like thank you, see you again. The reason why I said I "kinda like this song" is that the garbage rap verse by the mysterious ghost rapper kinda spoiled the song a bit. Oh and don't forget about the dancing monkeys in the music video with the horrendous choreography.
It's a song from her 54321 album released in 2007. The song is sung in Hokkien, and the chorus is both in Hokkien and Mandarin.
One more thing I like to point out that is Jeannie Hsieh seems to have very prominent Austronesian facial features. She could pass for a Vietnamese girl in my books.
The music video is way too cool! It's so lively, care-free and happy and that's what I love about it! At first I thought the song was about celebrating life or something to that effect because of the uptemo feel to it, but when I read the English translation lyrics it turns the song is a sappy emo love song. An intended juxtaposition maybe?
Palmy is one of Thailand's most popular female pop stars. She's half Thai and half Belgian and she also got this Sheryl Crow hairstyle going on. This is her big hit song from the summer of 2011, คิดมาก which means in Thai something like over-thinking.
