Just How Talented is F(x)’s Amber Liu?

25 Apr

By now, if you’ve been following my blog, you know that I’ve been f(x) crazy for the last two months, and my obsession doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. It won’t slow down until my big “promotional move” I have planned this summer. But that will be kept under my hat until then…

Just remember to #bfx2us and put your town behind it to show where your love for f(x) is coming from, if of course, you’ve fallen in love with this group as much as I have.

Well, this article is a part of that promotion. My goal is to push for an f(x) tour for, at least, next year.

To learn more about K-pop group f(x):

f(x) the Korean “Spice Girls” + Amber Liu in the Spotlight

f(x) Red Light Review

Just how Talented is f(x) Sulli?

Just how Talented is f(x) Victoria?

Just how talented is f(x) Krystal?

Just how talented is f(x) Luna?

To all of you who have watched the music videos, and who doubt the talent of the f(x) members, I will be doing something similar to an artist “portfolio”. In this case, I will be showcasing the musical background and skills of each f(x) artist. This resume “portfolio” of sorts will show all readers why I think these girls qualify to be a part of f(x), why I believe them to be SM’s major female multi-national group, and why I think f(x) has what it takes to make it internationally.

Basically, this is why I think you newcomers should hire them as one of your new favorite K-pop groups. 😉

I will begin the first article with my ultimate f(x) bias, and the most popular f(x) member, Amber Liu!

Amber Liu is the charming tomboy in the f(x) group. You really can’t miss her. She stands out, not only in the f(x) group, but in the sea that is full of K-pop idols. Amber has a unique appearance, but she also has a very charming personality. She’s funny, friendly, and open-minded.

Amber is boyish, but Amber is also very beautiful, too. Anyone can see that she has striking features: beautiful eyes, lovely lips, a bright smile, and nice hair texture.

But enough about how pleasant she is and how unique her sense of style is. Let’s review her credentials. Let’s look at what makes her a true K-pop artist and musical icon.

Amber Liu Can Sing

If you were to just observe the f(x) music videos, you would mostly hear Amber rapping briefly in each song.

What you may not always hear is Amber’s vocal abilities. And yet, Amber passed through the SM auditions because of her vocal abilities. I would like to share with you a collection of Amber’s vocal abilities:

Amber sings the opening part of “Rocketeer” with Minho from SHINee.

Amber sings “We Belong Together” on Radio Star.

Amber sings “Sadness Guide” on Radio Star.

Amber sang the English version of “Good-bye Summer” that was originally titled “I Just Wanna”. Amber originally wrote this song, along with a friend of hers.

Amber sang Lee Seung Gi’s “White Lie”.

Amber sings Henry Lau (Super Junior-M)’s song “Weibo”.

Amber sang “Talking to the Moon” on Global Request: A Song for You episode 3.

Amber sang a solo song that was never released called “So Good” featuring Chad Future.

Amber sang a song called “Beautiful” for her solo album of the same name.

Amber sang a song called “Heights” for her solo album Beautiful.

Amber sang a song called “Love Run” for her solo album Beautiful.

Amber Liu has a knack for writing and composing music

Amber is a very expressive girl. She is always collaborating with other artists, and she seems to have her hand in many songs floating around in the K-pop world. She makes some pretty interesting songs. She also works with other song-writers, helping them translate English songs into Korean songs.

Amber helped in writing “Beautiful Stranger” for the f(x) EP Electric Shock. She personally re-wrote the song in Korean. The original song was in English.

Amber, and a friend of hers, wrote and composed “Good-bye Summer” for the f(x) album Pink Tape.

Amber, and a friend of hers, wrote and composed “Summer Lover” for the f(x) album Red Light.

She wrote, composed, and arranged the song “Beautiful” for her mini album of the same name.

She had a hand in the writing for the song “Shake That Brass” for her mini album Beautiful.

Amber also wrote the songs “Love Run” and “Heights” for her mini album Beautiful.

Amber wrote the song “I Just Wanna” for her mini album Beautiful and the Korean version for Pink Tape.

Amber Liu Plays Guitar and Drums

Amber has said she likes Rock music, her favorites being Linkin Park and Taking Back Sunday. So, it’s not surprising that Amber has taken up guitar and drums.

Facts about Amber

Amber plays around with drums alongside a Royal Pirates member.

Did y'all know lil llama could play???#llamapirates #part1 @ajol_llama

A post shared by James (@jamesjhl) on

Amber plays the guitar for the acoustic version of “Nu Abo”.

Amber Liu Can Dance

Amber not only CAN dance, but she ENJOYS dancing as well.

Amber had a solo dance in the Mnet 20’s Performance “Hot Summer”.

Amber danced to “Disturbia” with her fellow members in pre-debut era.

Amber is involved in three “Harlem Shake” videos.

 

Amber Liu Can Rap

Despite the brief rap segments she has in the f(x) songs, Amber actually has some seriously amazing skills.

Amber rapped “Believe Me”.

Amber rapped “Me against the World”.

Amber rapped in the song “Baby” along with Henry (Suju-M).

Amber rapped “Where is the Love?” with SHINee’s Key.

Amber rapped “Lose Yourself”.

Amber raps “Caution” with CSJH The Grace members Dana and Sunday.

Amber raps in the song “Airplanes” with John Park.

Amber Liu works really well with People

Amber’s “people skills” are amazing. She not only works well with her fellow members, but she also works well with many other people. She has featured with many artists.

Amber has collaborated with Henry (Super Junior-M) on many occasions. “1-4-3 I love You” was one of the songs she worked on with him. They have a lot of stage chemistry.

Amber has also provided the rap segment for Yuri (Girls’ Generation: SNSD) in “1, 2 Step”.

Amber and Minho had an amazing short performance with “Rocketeer”.

Amber has also performed with Kris (EXO-M) in the song “Thrift Shop”.

Amber performed “Like a G6” with Key (SHINee) and Kris (EXO-M)

Amber was included in C-pop Danson’s comeback “I’m Back”.

Amber talks about her connections on Global Request: A Song for You episode 3.

Amber Liu Speaks 3 Languages

Amber’s first language is English, then Mandarin Chinese, and then Korean. She is also working on Japanese!

Amber can films, produces, directs Music Videos

Amber is also getting all kinds of experience with short film and video production! She has produced teasers for friends and even some of her own music videos! This girl is stretching her hand towards any skills and opportunities available.

She produced a comeback teaser for her fellow SMTown member KyuhYun!

She and her team filmed, produced, and directed several of her own work, including “Beautiful”, “Borders”, “On My Own”, and “Need To Feel Needed”.

SO, this is full proof of her musical skill and range of talents. I hope that I have shown you what she’s made of.

Amber also makes an amazing MC, as people have noticed on Show Champion and We Got Married Global. She’s also doing Youtube videos now!

    it’s Linkin Park not Lincoln Park. How old are you? 10? -.-“

      My computer does automatic spell check, and so the spelling became poor.

      Can I help it that ‘Linkin’ isn’t a word in our dictionary?

      Yes, yes, I’m 10 years old, writing a detailed article and expressing myself daily without my parents’ permission…-.-

      Please don’t be immature. I’m 24 years old, and a huge Linkin Park fan. I understand the spelling annoys you, but you don’t have to be a Nazi about it. There are ways to get your point across.

      And that’s missing the mark to assume I’m 10. There are 40 year old people who don’t know who Linkin Park is. They would also likely spell the name wrong, or rather correctly, as ‘Linkin’ isn’t a word. Please think before you type insults.

      And while you’re at it why don’t you capitalize your ‘I’ in “It’s”. 😛

  2. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure
    things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating
    my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Thank you

      It’s cool. 😉 It isn’t hard at all. Here are some tips:

      1) Make your website easy to navigate. You see what I have at the top? Sections. Keep an organized blog so that people know what they are looking for. Choose interesting sections, things that people would like to read.

      2) Interesting titles are important. Also, make sure others can understand what you’re saying in a few words.

      3) When commenting to people, even with snarky comments, remember to remain calm and respectful. Help others to understand where you are coming from and always appreciate those who comment.

      4) Update often. If you see that an article is getting more views than normal, check out the article to see if videos are working and that all of the information is up-to-date.

      5) Always have sources to back up what you say. This is key.

      6) Try to keep things brief and try not to repeat yourself…though I have a hard time doing this myself.

      7) Use a captivating background, but not too distracting. It should be moderate.

      WordPress is a nice blogging website. They made it easy for me to set up. It took years for me to get my points across effectively, and it requires patience and maintenance. But I think you can do it. 🙂

      I am currently working on an ebook but it will be so different from the content on this blog. I am not against guest blogging, but I plan blogging within my time frame. It would all depend on the timing and the material presented. Can you share your blog with me so I can get a good idea of the topics you present?
