... and we love it. I sure as hell do. Mastermind JYP knows just how to get us to empty our pockets for him.

When I first got my hands on the 2PM comeback single, Again & Again, I, like everyone else, have been crankin' up this track. However, while singing along to it, I couldn't help but to find myself singing K-Pop single of 2008 (and future US single), Nobody. Its not too obvious, but the two tracks do indeed share striking similarities in melody, chord structure (transposed, of course), and song structure.

To prove myself, here is the proof. Listen to the audio track provided and hear for yourself. The acapella of Again & Again and the instrumental of Nobody have been slapped on together by yours truly.

Enjoy the clip!

LMAO @ the pic

I don't knock JYP's hustle but to me he epitomizes everything that's wrong with music, not only in Korea, but everywhere. I know it's blame that can be spread around but since he's the only one I've seen shamelessly admit he signs people based mostly on looks and then give them generic repeatative songs for no other reason than it'll catch on, he's the one that stands out to me. Everyone else does it but geez have some shame. LOL

The article was from Allkpop. Anyways, JYP's music isnt exactly deep or ground breaking niether is his lyrics but it's still damn catchy. The other tracks on 2PM's mini album is quite good too. Unlike the Wonder Girls previous stuff which consist of one hit song and the rest is crap imo so he's doing something right.

it's cool. I just went off on a tangent. I felt I had to get that off my chest.

I think they do that so that the artists don't ever actually compete with each other. Contrary to uber-fan's belief GG and WG probably share a lot of the same fans. So releasing at separate time increases the amount of potential income.
