Cherry Belle A K-Pop Inspired Girl Band
K-pop is massively popular in Asia region and gaining significant influence in the other parts of the world such as Australia, Canada and USA. K-pop stand for Korean popular music, which includes but not limited to pop, hip hop, rock, R&B, dance, electronic music from the country of Korea. The huge success of K-pop in entertainment industry, encourage some K-pop inspired musical groups or bands such as Cherry Belle, a girl band from Indonesia.
Yes, I think Cherry Belle is copycat of famous SNSD (Girls' Generation), a girl Kpop group. Just like SNSD, Cherry Belle has 9 members: Anisa, Angel, Cherly, Christy, Devi, Felly, Gigi, Ryn, and Wenda. All of them are young, beautiful with good singing and dancing skills. All the members are called as chibi (cute or little), a popular Japanese slang used in anime or manga. Cherry Belle means "manis" (cherry = sweet) and "cantik" (belle=pretty).
Are They Really Good ?
Are they really talented singers ?. Well the time will tell. In my opinion, Cherry Belle is more about marketing wrapped in pretty long legs, petite waistline, beautiful face and fashionable clothing than the musical art. In other words, It's a kind of manufactured musical groups or singers. Although I enjoy their cuteness and easy to listen music, I wish they are more than just copycat. They should establish their own personality and originality.
Album And Songs
Recently, Cherry Belle has released 1 mini album :Love Is You (2011) with "Dilema" as one of the popular song. The mini album has 5 songs:
- I'll be there for you
- Love is you
- Best Friend Forever
They are planning to release a new movie on March 2012, "Love is You".
If you watch their videos on YouTube, you can make your mind up about their performance.
