About

Luminosity opened on October 13th, 2009 with the goals to “promote, support and spread the love of underrateds.” The meaning behind Luminosity is “the quality of being inspired” (what and/or which underrated artists have inspired you to want to support them or simply, what inspires you?). The other meaning is “the brightness of a star in comparison with a sun; The brightness of that star or those stars can be just as bright as the sun itself or maybe, maybe even many more times brighter. “ (In this case, the more well known artists is the sun while all the underrateds are the stars…they can shine even brighter if we all give them a chance to)

What is considered an underrated artist?

 

To describe an underrated artist is very complex. Because so many people have so many definitions of what an underrated should be, it’s hard to explain. In my opinion, an underrated artist is not an idol artist; they can be artists who received their “15 minutes of fame” or, they probably didn’t make it that far. Underrated artists are the ones listed and not listed in this blog. They don’t necessarily have to be completely underrated (as I’m unsure where they would stand in their native country) however, as an international fan, it’s quite obvious if one is underrated or not.

Underrated artists are artists people most likely will forget about. They are the artists we should be giving the most attention to. But if you would like to put an underrated in simple terms, underrateds are ones who are “undervalued, failed to appreciate, think little of and underestimate.”

When one “labels” an artist with a term, like underrated, it is not meant in a bad way. Actually, to be underrated is perfect, at least for this cause.

Though this is a slowly growing blog (and cause), we all hope that you would open your eyes, ears and hearts out to the many underrated artists of the music industry.

    Hey Ladies!

    Love the concept of your blog :) I hope that you continue to grow and expand! Just saw Sookyeong link you so if it’s cool with you ladies, I will also post some of your articles on hypnoticASIA that will also hopefully help bring at least a little bit of extra traffic to your site. I really recommend that you set up a Twitter account that at the very list provides a Twitterfeed of new articles – this will help you get to your pageview goal a lot faster. The power of a re-tweet! :) If you need any help with that, let me know! Would be happy to help!

    Much respect!

    Hello!

    I’ve noticed that you are like the only one who searches news about nia and is able to search up stuff on their cyworlds… it would be awesome if you work together with us, we have made an international forum for Nia, and help us out ’cause we’ve been having trouble finding news… we’ve been taking some stuff out of your blog and we fully credited this blog for that!
    It would be nice if you could become staff in our forum ^^ Here’s the link to the forum: http://z10.invisionfree.com/Niawesome
    We hope you will reply and thanks in advance!

      ……I’m really honored and grateful for the offer but I’m already a mod/staff at many other forums (the main one is on Soompi)…..
      I don’t mind if you guys take out the stuff I post up here, as long as you credit back to me or my blog….so I will have to decline the offer. I don’t want to make anymore empty promises and hope that I can be there but I won’t be able to make it. I can link the int’l forum on my blog though….if you would like…

      • helloprojectlove December 25, 2009 at 1:03 PM #

      About Aunt Mary, I couldn’t find anything ‘new’ on them…only that they are preparing for a new album.

  7. clowicious January 3, 2010 at 9:16 PM #

    hi Mardi! Thanks for your interest in exchanging blog links with Kpop Rants. I’ve already added you on my blogroll, hopefully you’ll add my link soon on yours!

    btw I’ve known you thru Soompi and YouTube and I must say you are quite unique with your underrated artists ^^ I know there are many talented people who need to be known and I’m thankful there are people like you around to spread the word!

    nice to see you again ^^

    Hi Mardi, I was wondering if you could find more information about shin bo kyung


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMUiQ7-Fuuo

    All I know is she goes by the name ‘BO’ but I can’t find out if she’s debuted or not. The only time I see her perform is on Star Golden Bell, with Answer in Super Rookie segment(they’re the ones that beat Chung Lim after 5 consecutive wins)Beige was on that episode too, and now that’s episode’s gone, but her performance with Answer was so epic.

    I kind of just want to know if she debuted or not.

    and you haven’t heard about sweet sorrow & Namolla family?

    • Mardi January 28, 2010 at 5:55 PM #

      I don’t know if you wanted me to post her info or not but she was a guest singer for duo 015B in 2006 under the name Boni (보니). She features in Soulman’s single “Let’s Get Started” released on the 11th under the name Boni. DL: http://www.mediafire.com/?ncmzuenz2un
      other than the single with Answer and another single with G-Idea (she went by Shin Bo Kyung there). So to answer your question, no, she has not debuted yet.

      what would you like to know about Sweet Sorrow and Namolla Family?

      • ajikto January 29, 2010 at 4:20 AM #

        she did a single with answer? and G-idea? can you give links -_-” I can’t find them anywhere.

        As for sweet sorrow, can I request a profile? Every time I search for them, it always get mixed up with a german rock band with the same name.

        Namolla family, they’re a group consist of 3 guys, so I’m really curious who is ‘Tei’ the female singer that features a lot in Namolla’s songs, cuz I’ve never seen her face. And when did they debut, and…can I request their profile too?

        *puppy dog eyes*

    • Mardi January 29, 2010 at 4:52 PM #

      haha. you mean “Tae In”
      ^___^
      I’ll get to them.

    Hi Mardi ^^
    I didn’t know where else to post this, but I hope you don’t mind me posting it here (you can always delete it haha). Anyways, what does it mean when an artist/singer is “underrated”?
    Does it mean that they are not as popular as they should be or like they are not appreciated enough?
    For example, I see a lot of posts (on other sites) that SG Wannabe is underrated. o__O but I thought they weren’t because many people know they sing very well so they aren’t underrated and their album sales are pretty high.
    @__@ I’m confused haha.

    • Mardi February 8, 2010 at 4:32 PM #

      Well, the general term I guess means that one is not popular and not an idol artist. SG Wannabe to some extent is underrated. They may sing well and they may have high album sales but if you compare them to say, Shinee or Super Junior, an idol group, they don’t have that many fans, etc. I focus more on the artists who are more underrated, like as if no one or a few has only heard of them. SG Wannabe, I guess, is in between. Hope that explains it for you. If not, I’ll try to explain again XD

      • dee February 9, 2010 at 3:44 PM #

        Ahh ok that helped A LOT! Thank you!
        I just don’t want to be throwing that term around looking like an idiot lol x)

  14. SuperKAIYO March 1, 2010 at 6:00 AM #

    I’m obsessed with mardi’s youtube channel ! XD
    I always liked indie underrated bands just cause their so good and different from those catchy songs that rule the kpop scene these days (but i like those songs as well)
    I am learning korean and i started translating some songs on my chennel and blog.. but i now decided that i will translate more of the underrated music since its hard to find translations for them..
    and i remember when i first started listening to kpop and found these amazing singers like kim woo joo and nell but i couldn’t understand a word and got really frustrated XD
    anyways .. what i wanted to say , on the requests page you mentioned that you can provide lyrics and romanji but no translation .. so i was wondering if i could join your team or collaborate with you guys or whatever cause i really want to help get these underrated artists known ..
    but i dont really have anyone that shares the same music tasets as me so i cant really help with publishing this blog : (
    but yeah its long but thats what i wanted to say i would love it if i could join you and help out with something !

    • Mardi March 1, 2010 at 3:54 PM #

      surely….you can help out…
      just give me your email and i’ll add you on the blog ^^
      though our music taste differs a lot, if we all share one thing in common: spreading the underrated love, then we can get along just fine XD looking forward to working with you

      • SuperKAIYO March 2, 2010 at 5:31 AM #

        well indie is my favorie but i like alot of underrated bands ^_^
        thank you so much ~ here is my email jk.c@hotmail.com

    Hi Mardi! :D
    I am a fan of many k-indie band and very happy to find this blog! xD

    I have a blog that post korean song lyrics. Though my blog entries are korean song lyrics from all genres, i’m always interested in finding lyrics that are difficult to be found. So I’d like to link your blog to mine [hope the link appear along with my comment] and also promoting the k-indie band!

    Thanks so much :)

    • mardi09 April 19, 2010 at 6:34 PM #

  17. buttercupcake87 May 3, 2010 at 12:27 PM #

    this is a very cool blog. do continue this great deed for the underrated artist. i’m one of the admin of romanization.wordpress.com. i had to update on kpop lyrics in general, popular or underrated. and i came across a lot of great singers, but are not popular. so far, i’ve became fans of some artist that are not so well known. they are quite good, but i guess the company that represents them are not so good in ‘promoting’ hehe

  18. mondaykizlove May 14, 2010 at 10:58 AM #

    hello mardi ^^
    i’m updating about Monday Kiz news at their fansite

  19. mcroth July 1, 2010 at 8:58 PM #

    Hi!
    I’ve recently discovered this blog and have become obsessed with it. I know several sources for indie and ‘underrated’ musicians and I’m glad I found another.

    I review Korean pop music, btw, so I’ll gladly link you to my blog :D

  20. MSA July 12, 2010 at 10:17 PM #

    Oh gosh. Thanks SO much for existing, guys. You know, I’ve been searching like mad for stuff about Code V, but I couldn’t find a single damn thing D: I’m so happy to have found you, and in doing so, to have found so many good, “underrated” artists.

    Hey Mardi, this is Gelie for OhKpop. I remember you wanting to be affiliated with us and I’ll be delighted to. If you could mail me your site’s banner and maybe a Twitter account – then I’ll definitely promote you.

    Thanks! :)

    Thanks for this site guys! I’m going to be just breezing through at the moment, but I’ll be stopping back for sure – bookmarked you for future reference. This is the stuff I try to promote too – keep up the great work!

  23. widhiarini July 27, 2010 at 11:49 AM #

    Mardi! I’m also very excited about the release of the album. I really like the cover of the album. It looks very cute. :)
    I want to dedicate something for them… I am thinking of making a congratulatory video from all the international fan out there for the release of their new EP after quite a long hiatus. I might not be as experienced as you when you made a video for Dia but… I really want to get this through.
    If possible, would you mind helping me preparing this project by helping me to announce this? If possible I hope we can make it a week before August 20, 2010 or the day of their concert. How can I contact you via email? For me, you may go here: wizwidz@gmail.com. I’m looking forward to your reply! Thanks a million~

    mardi… just wanna ask… if you want to write something for soompi… what should you do? i wanna write for them

    • mardi09 July 29, 2010 at 6:20 PM #

      At the moment, I’m not sure if we are accepting new writers. Earlier this summer, we were taking new interns but we already chose them…….

      What kind of topics are you interested in writing about? Maybe I can ask one of the admins…

      • hikkiFM July 29, 2010 at 8:14 PM #

        well anything… news, -.- but soompi is kpop right? i hope it will also expand.. like for the jpop news or something

    • mardi09 July 29, 2010 at 8:18 PM #

      That’s why I asked you what you’d write about….If you wanted to write about Jpop more than Kpop, it might be good. Though we focus mainly on Kpop, we want to expand…

      I have to leave now and might not be online tomorrow (have a cousin’s wedding to prepare for) However, I just messaged another mod on Soompi about this and will see what he will reply back with…

      • hikkiFM July 29, 2010 at 8:36 PM #

        oh thank you so much! :D

      • mardi09 July 31, 2010 at 7:22 PM #

        at the moment, I think we are not in need of news writers however, you can PM melkimx @ soompi and ask her about writing for Soompi.

      • hikkiFM August 8, 2010 at 5:27 PM #

        thanks.. i just messaged her… lol i dunno if she will consider it -.-

  31. Jae September 12, 2010 at 4:02 PM #

    Hi Mardi!~
    My name is Jae and I happened to find your wordpress account when I was looking up the group Tonight. I have a music blog too but we are just… “starting out”. kinda sorta. I ended up taking over one from a friend and I have been looking to expand it even more.
    I am trying to look into blogs to be affiliates with and would be really interested in being one of yours. Since Jenpoo has been shut down, I haven’t been able to find too much information on -like you said- underrated artists. Here is the information you asked to be filled out:

    1. Blog/forum name and link
    Originally called Love[Japan]music, as of three months ago we are now called Love[asia] music. Link: http://www.theotaku.com/worlds/asiamusic

    2. Administrator contact information
    Founders are myself(Jae) and Jean. My email address is JaeDollason@gmail.com. I also have skype as paniiclime

    3. Blog/forum description
    We post music, remixes, MVs, playlists, and news from 5 different countries in asia all in one easy, convenient place.

    4. What can this affiliation do for Luminosity?
    I am trying to learn about becoming more formal with blogging (which i could learn from you since you have been doing it for a year now lol), but I design all of our themes and logos at love[asia] and this is where we could help you. If you need a logo or header or anything done, I’d be happy to help.
    And just to assure you, I am not a 14 yr old who has just recently discovered photoshop. I’m a graphic design major. xD

    please email me back if you are interested! Thanks so much Mardi,

    -Jae

    I like what you’re doing here ;) I was just scrolling through your recent posts and I just realised that I could only recognise a few artists, and just barely too! Most kpop sites post news about the well kown bands from the big companies (SM, YG, JYP etc.), so I’m glad that your site, though while a stand-alone, is helping to promote artists who have yet to receive the recognition they deserve ;)

  34. adrieee October 15, 2010 at 9:16 AM #

    Do you still blog about Japanese artists ?

    • mardi09 October 15, 2010 at 10:37 AM #

      Try hyangmusic.com. Though it is a Korean website, foreigners are able to register and I’m sure, order as well =)

    Mardi, Hikki, Maggie and everyone else devoted to this wonderful blog, first of all I want to congratulate you on a superb job, I love what you’ve done here even though I am rather new here, been probably lurking your site once a while since I discovered a couple of months ago. Really the best in therms of original and quality coverages for what I also love, the talented underrated.

    After being in the sidelines for quite some time, I decided to go ahead and spread the love my own way, and started putting up my own blog a few weeks ago. And since I find Luminosity such a great source of info, I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind to Affiliate with me, in other words, would it be ok if I linked you on my blog?

    I guess by clicking on my name you will be taken there directly, but in case that fails, my brand new blog is:
    lessthan3effeXts.wordpress.com

    Its only me and my friend Ms. Boogie taking care of it for now, hopefully I’ll get one or two more people to lend me a hand to have it fully operational, especially with CPop, but as founder and main poster I have KPop and JPop covered.

    Anyway, hope I get your permission to link you over there, whatever users I get will surely benefit from coming to your site.

    Cheers!

    Hello Mardi, Hikki, and Margi! I wish to become affiliates:

    1. Lost In Paradise – http://chukuma.wordpress.com/ entertainment.
    2. Chukuma862@hotmail.com
    3. Lost In Paradise is a blog dedicated to Japanese and Korean dramas as well as music.
    4. This affiliation can provide Japanese and Korean music lovers to be aware of underrated artists. I can inform you of Japanese underrates if you would like.

      Scratch out that entertainment part in number 1! My mistake! XD

      • mardi09 January 15, 2011 at 2:16 AM #

        I’m sorry for the late reply.

        Thank you for your interest. I would love to hear of underrated Japanese artists =)

    Hello! I’m very interested in becoming an affiliate.

    1. Momo.Psycho (http://momopsycho.blogspot.com)
    2. Angrynoona (admin), angrynoona@gmail.com
    3. Hybrid blog covering kpop, food, news, pop culture, art and photography, etc. It’s easier to just check it out.
    4. Having Momo.Psycho as an affiliate can benefit us both. For us, it gives us the opportunity to expose our audience to lesser known kpop artists. For Luminosity, it helps bring a wider audience in that may not even be completely familiar with kpop. We are a very new blog, but we are getting quite a few hits.

    Thank you so much for your consideration!

      Thanks so much! Especially for you kind donation~~ I don’t currently have an official banner for Luminosity but I guess I can make a quick one for you. What size would you like it to be?

    1. Only G.IAM
    2. http://z15.invisionfree.com/only_giam/
    3. It’s a newly opened Int’l Forum for G.IAM
    4. Being affiliated with each other can make people recognize the talent that these boys have and learn to love and support them. Also it can make people discover other underrateds like them and support them too^^

    1. iMolla Lyrics (http://imollalyrics.wordpress.com/)
    2. imollalyrics@yahoo.com
    3. A site that provides hangul and romanized lyrics to Korean songs
    4. Being one that has a love for underrated music I’d like help spread the love of these songs through their lyrics. I’d like to help others discover that there’s more talent to Korean music then the usual pretty faced autotoned songs that’s being thrown out now-a-days.

    Hi guys,

    I’ve just happened to visit your site. Actually it was by chance, I was googling for something else when I found it :-) Whatever… your blog is really nice and well done, I really like it. So, congrats! And keep up with the good work :-)

    Cheers

    1. dolly piglet http://dollypiglet.wordpress.com
    2. blueberrinight@gmail.com
    3. a Piggy Dolls fanblog
    4. I fell in love with this band when i first found the information on this alas your blog, and i sort of made my own fanblog with the thought of being the extension of your basic information about the girls. The blog is new but it gets pretty many hits a day already. Being affiliated would mean that more people who are interested could get a deeper look into the style and music of the girls, learn about their past and be up to date all the time. i generally hope to make people more aware of this underrated group because for information on such groups you usually have to dig pretty deep and not everyone is willing to do that.
