The snake is an unusual creature. Some can pretend that they’re dead to ensure predators leave them alone. Others can eat animals that are three times bigger than their mouths. It can take hours for snakes to completely swallow their prey. They can be completely inactive for a month before shedding their skin. And, the really big ones can grow up to nine metres in length.
While many people dislike snakes, there’s no avoiding the fact that we’re entering the year of this slithering creature, according to Chinese Astrology. Feb. 10 marks Chinese New Year’s and the start of the year of the snake. But what does this really mean? Here’s a round-up of several astrological sites and what they say about the snake:

“Re:Blue” was released in Korea on January 14 and then a special edition version of the album was released on January 31. “Re:Blue” and its main song “I’m Sorry” have taken the #1 spot on Taiwan’s top music site Omusic’s charts. “Re:Blue” has swept the charts for twenty days now.
“Re:Blue” has of course topped the charts in Japan and Korea as well. “Re:Blue” has been #1 on Japan’s Tower Records’ chart since it was released and its special edition album was sold out. The album has also reached #1 on Billboard’s world music chart.
CNBLUE will promote their mini album in Taiwan and the Philippines from February 20 to the 23. In April they will embark on a world tour to greet their overseas fans.
Allowing fans to relive the past six years of their musical confection, Big Bang has released a short teaser for its Big Bang Best Music Video Collection, Korea edition.
The 30-second teaser was revealed on February 6 through Big Bang’s Youtube page, playing out short segments of some of Big Bang’s most notable music videos from La La La, Fool with Only Tears, Lies, Haru Haru to Tonight, Bad Boy, Fantastic Baby, and Monster.
The music video collection will also include the member’s solo music videos as well.
Pre-orders began on February 1 and will end on February 12. The collection will be released on February 13.
Recently, Big Bang’s G-Dragon, an idol who’s also a producer, has taken issue with the “recycling strategy”of the K-pop industry.
During a press conference held for Big Bang’s world tour stop in Seoul, G-Dragon openly expressed his criticism of South Korea’s music industry. “I think Korean music, for the most part, has been limited in scope to just one genre. When I produce music, I try not to simply make music that appeals to the masses,” he stated.
Korean music has a tendency of focusing on electro pop or R’n’B ballads with certain trends catching on and becoming popular with a sudden influx of music mimicking that sound. G-Dragon steers clear of being sucked into those trends, making a conscience effort to expand his musical horizons by listening to a wide range of musical genres and styles.
“Instead of just listening to K-pop, I listen to a variety of music from many genres. I wish we could go back to a time when we made music with memories,” he said.
G-Dragon was also critical of the way music is discarded like stale bread. Songs that are popular one minute are too quickly forgotten as listeners move on and demand new music to enjoy.
“In other countries, as long as the songs are good, an album can have a positive response 2, 3, even 6 months after it is released,” he said.
