|With the arrival of South Korean tv in glorious HD to the UK's main satellite supplier|
late last year, I'm now finally able to watch all the top K-Pop tv shows right in
my very own living room, and each and every day as well with shows
like 'The After School Club', 'Pops in Seoul' and best of all 'Simply K-Pop.'
My satellite hard-disc recorder is bursting at the seams having recorded so many
shows as I want to pick out some of the best and make some picture stills for a
super dooper post on the rise of K-Pop in the U.K.
I don't think Asian guys are very well represented on U.K. tv shows, and
watching something like the 'Simply K-Pop' tv show is like a moving conveyor
belt of mouth watering beauty as one band comes on following another.
'Simply K-Pop' tv show is I suppose the Asian version of Britain's once popular but now
dead and buried 'Top Of The Pops' weekly tv show, and the once a year Christmas

So at least I'm grateful that I grew up in an age when the British music scene was
positively thriving. And it's no wonder that almost 80% of my personal music collection
But back to our K-Pop story where it would appear that the subjects of
our post here, K-Pop outfit 'History' have announced this week that they
are disbanding. Although their Management went on to say that all the members
will be kept on under individual contracts which is okay for the group's
two most popular members like Kyungil, the one with the body and abs
along with the spectacular Jang yi Jeong who features here in all of these images.
But I wonder what will become of the lesser known members. Will they
succeed as solo artists? Will any of them succeed?
