The 1st Only U-kiss Fanblog in Indonesia
[NEWS] 100224 U-Kiss “7 As 1, for number #1!!”
- U-KISS 1st Full Album ‘ONLY ONE’
“We’ll ride taxi nowadays. We’re used to take train before but there are lots of people who recognize us now. We will work hard to show each member’s differences on the next album.”
“Kita akn naik taksi saat ini. Kami akn mnggunakan kereta api tapi sbelum disana ada byk org yg mngenali kami. Kami akn bekerja keras utk menunjukkan perbedaan masing-masing anggota di album berikutnya.”
They are finally realized how popular they are nowadays. Since the boys don’t have a dormitory life, they had to take public transportation (back then) instead of taxi in order to gather. Their manager will be calling them here & there to keep track of their location and they will never take away their phone from their ears. They have to carry 3 mobile phones for these purposes.
Mrk akhirnya menyadari betapa populernya mrk saat ini. Karena anak laki-laki tdk memiliki kehidupan asrama, mrk hrus mengambil transportasi umum (saat itu), bkn taksi utk berkumpul. Manajer mrk akn menjemput mrk di sini & di sana utk melacak lokasi mrk dan mrk tdk akn prnh mengambil telepon mrk dari telinga mrk. Mrk hrus membawa 3 ponsel utk tujuan ini.
Back then, the luck wasn’t on their side, which made them lost their confidence even though that they have been working hard since debuted. However, everything changed with ‘Man Man Ha Ni’.
Dulu, keberuntungan ini tdk di pihak mrk, yg membuat mrk kehilangan kepercayaan mrk meskipun mrk tlah bkerja keras sjak debutnya. Namun, segalanya berubah dgn ‘Man Man Ha Ni’.
Each of the members are finally relieved. 1 year and 6 months after debuted, they finally had their fan club inauguration as well as releasing their 1st full album ‘ONLY ONE’.
Masing-masing anggota akhirnya mrasa lega. 1 thn 6 bulan stlah debutnya, mrk akhirnya memiliki pelantikan fansclub mrk serta mrilis 1st full album ‘ONLY ONE’.
U-KISS is ready to show their unique and true selves in 2010.
U-KISS siap utk mnunjukkan sisi unik dan baik mrk pada thn 2010.

Mrk mnahan pelantikan resmi fanclub stlah 1 thn 6 bulan sjak mulai debut
Thn ini, para anggota akn memiliki kegiatan mrk sendiri di bawah nama mrk
“Releasing 1st album means a lot to singers, but our worries are higher. Right now, we’re receiving so much love than during ‘Man Man Ha Ni’. Because of that, we felt the burden since the expectations on us are higher. But we believe that everything will be fine if we worked hard in our preparations.”
“Merilis 1 album pnuh berarti bagi byk pnyanyi, tapi kekhawatiran kami lbh tinggi. Skrg, kami menerima bgitu byk cinta daripada selama ‘Man Man Ha Ni’. Krna itu, kami mrasakan beban krna harapan kami mnjadi lbh tinggi. Namun, kami yakin bhwa smuanya akn baik-baik saja jika kami bkerja keras dlm persiapan kami.”
The title track ‘Bingeul Bingeul’ is just as popular as ‘Man Man Ha Ni’. Brave Brothers (producer), who have been working with U-KISS ever since their debut, included the addictive and repetitive lyrics of ‘Bingeul Bingeul Bingeul~’ in the song. They replaced ‘Strong Guy Dance’’ with ‘Whirlwind Dance’, which has created a lot of buzz to the people.
Jdul lagu ‘Bingeul Bingeul’ adlh sama populernya sperti ‘Man Man Ha Ni’. Brave Brothers (produser), yg tlah bkerja dgn U-KISS sjak debut mrk, trmasuk kesan adiktif dan membuat ulang lirik ‘Bingeul Bingeul Bingeul~’ dlm lagu. Mrk mnggantikan ‘Tari Strong Guy/Strong Guy Dance” dgn ‘Tari Angin Puyuh/Whirlwind Dance ‘, yg tlah mnciptakan byk buzz dari org-org.
“We put a lot of thoughts on the dance. We’ve gone through about 10 dance routines before completing it (choosing the right choreography i believe). We shoot the music video and until we’re about to go out for our first broadcasting, we’re still continuing looking over every details for a possible modifications (if any).”
“Kami menaruh byk usulan utk tarian. Kami sdh mlalui skitar 10 tarian rutinitas sbelum mnyelesaikan hal itu (memilih koreografi yg tepat). Kami syuting utk musik video sampai kami hendak pergi keluar utk pnyiaran pertama kami, kami msh trus mncari di setiap detail utk kemungkinan modifikasi (jika ada).”
They first released ‘Without You’ to test the public reactions before the actual release of their first album. ‘Man Man Ha Ni’ and ‘Bingeul Bingeul’ brought completely a different atmosphere. ‘Bingeul Bingeul’ provides more variety and eye candies for the public.
Mrk pertama kali mrilis ‘Without You’ utk mnguji reaksi publik sbelum sebenarnya mrk mrilis album pertama. ‘Man Man Ha Ni’ dan ‘Bingeul Bingeul’ benar-benar membawa suasana yg brbeda. ‘Bingeul Bingeul’ menyediakan lbh byk variasi dan lrikan mata utk umum.
“If we suggest ‘Man Man Ha Ni’ is being released after ‘Bingeul Bingeul’, the reactions from people might be ‘again?‘. Our music is more towards the club music style. But with ‘Without You’, it can stimulate a fresh style and effects.”
“Jika kami sarankan ‘Man Man Ha Ni’ yg dirilis stlah ‘Bingeul Bingeul’, reaksi dari org-org mgkn akn ‘lagi?”. Musik kami lbh ke arah gaya musik klub. Tapi dgn ‘Without You’, hal itu dpt merangsang gaya segar dan efek.”
U-KISS did a lot of researches for 2 years for their 1st album. From their debut song ‘Not Young’, ‘I Like You’ to ‘Man Man Ha Ni’, those songs were given a new life by creating the remix versions for the album. This album contains exciting music from U-KISS, from the 1st track up to the 14th track.
U-KISS mlakukan byk penelitian slama 2 thn utk 1st album. Dari debut mrk lagu ‘Not Young’, ‘I Like You’ mnjadi ‘Man Man Ha Ni’, lagu-lagu itu diberi sentuhan baru dgn mnciptakan versi remix album. Album ini brisi musik mnarik dari U-KISS, dari dftar 1 hingga sampai 14 lagu.
“Actually, listening to the song itself (the original one) does sound good even though it doesn’t really fit with the (current) concept. That’s why we came out with the remix versions (to match the concept).People will notice you for good songs, so we become greedy because we want people to listen to them.”
“Sebenarnya, mndengarkan lagu itu sendiri (yg asli) memang terdengar bagus meskipun tdk benar-benar cocok dgn (skrg) konsep. Itu sebabnya kami kluar dgn versi remix (utk mncocokkan konsep). Org-org akn mlihat mrk dgn lagu yg baik, shingga kami mnjadi serakah karna kami ingin org-org mndengarkan mereka.”
Even though now they can smile when reminiscing about their hardship memories, they’ll still feel the pain that they received during those times. Episode 1 – The actual title of their 1st album was ‘Return’. However, the members didn’t wish to go back to the past so they rejected that idea. The meaning of ‘ONLY ONE’ is ‘U-KISS can do it as long as the 7 members becomes 1‘. They also showed their desire to be at #1.
Meskipun skrg mrk bisa trsenyum ktika mngenang knangan ksulitan mrk, mrk akn msh mrasakan rsa sakit yg mrk terima saat itu. Episode 1 – jdul yg sbnernya utk 1st album adlh ‘Return’. Namun, para anggota tdk ingin kmbali ke masa llu shingga mrk menolak gagasan itu. Yg dimaksud dgn ‘ONLY ONE’ adlh ‘U-KISS dpt mlakukannya slama 7 anggota mnjadi 1’. Mrk jga mnunjukkan kinginan mrk utk berada di nomor #1.
“Still not good enough. U-KISS and ‘Man Man Ha Ni’, and people only recognize Dongho. This year, the other members will have their own individual activities too and we will work hard in making our name known to the public. Eli will be appearing in ‘F1’ through MBC ESPN while Soohyun will be a fixed in ‘God Of Cookery Expedition’.”(foto)
“Msh blum ckup baik. U-KISS dan ‘Man Man Ha Ni’, dan org-org hnya mengakui Dongho. Thn ini, anggota-anggota lain akn mmiliki kegiatan individual mrk sndiri jga dan kami akn bkerja keras dlm membuat nama kami dkenal masyarakat. Eli akn muncul dlm ‘F1’ mlalui MBC ESPN smentara Soohyun akn ttap di ‘God Of Cookery Expedition’. “
- Breaking The Jinx For Success
For singers, there are times where jinxes can get in their way while working on the album. There are believes that encountered with a ghost and the sudden power failures during recording are signs of success.
Utk penyanyi, ada saat di mana hal gaib bisa msk ke jlan mrk smentara bkerja utk album. Ada yg percaya bhwa dgn hantu dan gangguan listrik yg tba” dtg dan muncul slama rekaman adlh tnda” keberhasilan.
But it’s different for U-KISS. They refuse to believe such things in order to get rid of the jinxes.
Tapi ini brbeda utk U-KISS. Mrk mnolak utk prcaya hal” sperti utk hal” gaib.
“Luckily we didn’t really see a ghost. We’ll be in big trouble if we saw one. We saw a ghost during our ‘Not Young’ time and ended up failing, during our ‘I Like You’ time was also like that. Things like this didn’t happen during our ‘Man Man Ha Ni’ time, and we were pretty successful. It seems like U-KISS and ghost are really not a good combination. Blackouts did happen during our MV shooting but it was just because of the excessive usage of the electric power, so there are no significant meaning attached to it.”
“Untungnya kami tdk bnar” mlihat hantu. Kami akn brada dlm mslah besar jika kami mlihatnya. Kami mlihat hantu saat kami sdg braktifitas dgn ‘Not Young’ dan brakhir gagal, slama kami ‘I Like You’ wkt itu jga sperti itu. Hal” sperti ini tdk trjadi slama kami wkt ‘Man Man Ha Ni’, dan kami ckup brhasil. Spertinya U-KISS dan hantu bkn kombinasi yg bagus. Pemadaman listrik yg trjadi slama kami syuting MV, tapi itu hnya krna pnggunaan tenaga listrik yg brlbhan, jdi tdk ada arti signifikan mlekat pdanya.”
