130123 [Article] 10 Bold Predictions in K-pop for 2013

Live music will take over MR

Usually, bands can’t play their instruments live on music shows, but instead hand-sync the performance.

However, FNC Entertainment is doing their best to convince music shows to let CNBLUE play their instruments live, and their comeback stage was incredible. JYJ‘s Junsu also had a successful live-orchestra concert, and during the ‘KBS Music Festival‘, the idol band was the most popular segment of the show. If CNBLUE’s promotions are successful, FNC will certainly ask for the same for F.T. Island, Juniel and AOA. Other groups like LEDApple and non-idol groups like Nell and Busker Busker will want the same treatment.

It could even get to the point that idol groups who don’t normally play instruments on stage will feel pressure to prove themselves by doing so, or may want to give it a try- SHINee’s Jonghyun has said before that MR is “dead music”, and that he prefers a live band. It’s a bit of a long-shot, but we think that CNBLUE could pave the way for a trend towards live instruments in place of MR.

Trends of 2013

Every year, new trends pop up. Based on what we saw in 2012, these are some of the new trends that we may see happen in 2013:

2012 was all about the dubstep break, but that trend seems to be finally fading away. Lately, we’ve seen songs that appear to be heading one direction and then unexpectedly turn and go the other way. Girls’ Generation‘s “I Got a Boy” took this to a polarizing extreme, but songs like SHINee‘s “Sherlock“, Super Junior‘s “Spy“, FIESTAR‘s “We Don’t Stop“, GLAM’s “I Like That” and Hello Venus‘s “What Are You Doing Today?” have tried more accessible takes on the style, which we think could replace dubstep as 2013′s defining trend.
