Another good blog)

I’ve been watching KBS’s Top Band, a reality competition show for bands. One band that caught my attention was Poe. It turns out they already have an EP and also appeared on EBS’s “Hello Rookie” series, so they are not quite as amateur as some of the other contestants – but hey, Broken Valentine is allowed to compete on the show. The Top Band appearance has given Poe wider exposure than their EBS or Pentaport Rock Festival appearances. There is continuing concern by the judges and coaches on the show about their “popular appeal,” but nobody denies their musical talent.

Personally I prefer the band’s look during their Hello Rookie appearance than the current one on Top Band. The band also appears more confident in their 2010 Hello Rookie performances than they have been on Top Band so far. I wonder if this is due to the change in drummers. Their Top Band coach kept critiquing their drummer in this week’s episode, although he was sympathetic about it.
