Effects from f(x)



I was confused when I saw the name of this new girl band, not knowing how to say it, I read “function” (as in mathematics)…but it was wrong.
f (x) is read “EFFECTS” …what a brilliant idea. For the “F” they mean as a flower and “X” as symbol of female chromosomes (XX). (Ha, very scientific!)
This Girl band debut in 2009, most of the members are ex-child actresses. They are Victoria, Amber, Luna, Sulli, and Krystal. They were very young but have been successfully released the single “La Cha Ta” and “Chu ~ ♡”.
First heard their song entitled “La Cha Ta”, which crossed my mind “Girls Generation wannabe” .. oops .. my hunch is closely true they did Girls Generation’s yo dongsaeng (younger sister). Is not just they’re under the same label (SM Entertaiment), but also one of its members, Krystal, is the younger sister of Jessica (Girls Generation’s member).
But after more closely observing their musical quality, there is a difference between f (x) and girls generation. f (x) have the side of a little more rock, more beat, and more elements of hip hop .. which i think is nice …
This Korean girl band is unique.  Not all of the members are Korean citizens. Victoria (the leader) comes from Chinese and Amber is Taiwanese-American.
Since their debut until now, they have released several singles and some drama soundtrack (God of the Study and Cinderella‘s Sister).
New single is “Nu Abo” the release of May 4, 2010 and successfully dominated the Korean music charts, For me, I love “Lollipop” which they bring together with Chinese boy band, M.I.C, it’s fun for dancing … only a matter of taste. but overall they can be considered one of the successful girl band.
