I said I wouldn't make them a thread, well, I guess I lied. A group that is all about shaking dat ass (even if there's not always that much ass to shake) should always have their place at JPHiP, the promised land of behinds. And besides, I need a thread for my Nada butt gifs.

Gotta say, the amount of hate this group has received from Korean and International netitards, even before they actually debuted, is pretty amusing. I mean, to be fair, and make no mistake about it, for me this group is pretty firmly in the "guilty pleasure" territory, but it's not like they're the worst kpop group ever either. I've watched their MV plenty of times with a stupid grin on my face. And Nada's rapper swag and demeanor are so over-the-top I can't help but love it (I'd also like to pour hot sauce all over her body and lick it all up but I digress...)

More pics/gifs/vids and whatnot coming soon. Oh and should probably add that they're not ALL quite legal yet, hahhah... so tread carefully. :nervous

Mmmh. Nada used to be a model for a Korean hip-hop style clothing line...
















Speaking of the past, check out Hyuna's Ice Cream vid starting from 1:15 or so. The girl with the crazy expressions, spiky bra and a jeans jacket? Yeah, that's Nada alright. Nari is also in there with her, they also do some background dancing for Hyuna at least in the outdoor scenes. ALSO, guess who gets their chest blasted with liquid ice cream in the end of the vid??? I mentioned hot sauce earlier but now I'm getting more ideas... :lick:






And a few Nada gifs for starters... shaaake it gurl.

As soon as I saw Wassup, I knew who Stryfe's bias would be.  :D

More seriously, Nada's figure and look are pretty unusual for a K-Pop idol. There's been some speculation about whether she's mixed or just overdoes the fake tan. Certainly her skin tone seems to vary between light brown and dark brown.

By the way, I spotted that spiked bra on the other side of the East Sea. No thick girls in that group, but with a silly name, mixed race and bilingual members and international ambitions that are rather...ambitious they are not without interest and at least have guilty pleasure potential. :)

The girls were on akp answering questions and shit. Haven't really watched, I did notice it starts with Nada's ass and later on she does a pretty hilarious monkey impersonation. :monkey:

Some more dance covers from the practice room. Good times. Makes me wonder why all this stuff is 1080p and the MVs get a ghetto quality treatment.






More of Nada's butt and other body parts.

I've read that some K-Pop companies give portal sites exclusive rights to HD versions of their MVs and get paid a fee for each view in return.

M!CD & Simply K-pop perfs. I hear they've managed to get a Music Bank slot, too.






Couple of fancams. Same perf in both, first is Nari-centric and better quality. Also:



Man, Sujin's way too cute for this stuff lol. Love her big smile through it all.

And there we go, one of the big three. Music Bank with some live action.

Looks like they had to alter the choreo, bunny dumps are gone for example. Still plenty of ass shaking, at least.

A completely twerk-free Wassup video! The girls at Sound K Radio, singing and rapping their songs live.





Back at Music Bank, with a twerk-ful yet Bunny dump-less performance.

Next concept seems delightfully wholesome.





Dat sum Inkigayo. Looks like they opted to skip the latter part of the song altogether. Oh wells.

I found a summary of their Sound K interview.

Among other things, we learn that "Nada has always had a natural tan, and she got teased for it alot when she was younger". I wonder if this means that she is mixed and/or other people thought she was.

New songs... Hotter than a Summer, audio.





And they perform another new song "Galaxy" live in this video, starting at ~7:00.






Everyone loves an athlete. Looks like Sujin is/was representing Wassup in the Idol Olympics.




...and more Sujin geefs.

The MV for Hotter than a Summer, taking a backstage/making of approach. Might be blocked in some countries.
