Hello! This post is going to be about the fastest woman rapper in Korea, e.via (hangul: 이비아). She's also a lyricist, composer and pianst who is represented by Dline Art Media (디라인 아트 미디어). However, when she first started, she used to go by Napper and would actually combine both her e.via personas and Napper persona in her song called "My 약" ("My Medicine").

However, when she released the first song from her debut album, "Oppa! na Haedodwae?", it sparked controversy and was banned from being performed on Music Bank because of the lyrics were suggestive. She was later banned from performing any of her songs from her album because of how suggestive it was. Despite it all, the song and album recieved overwhelming responses from the online communities.

As of now, e.via seems to be off the radar.

        Frequently Asked Questions

        » Why are you doing this?
        Not a lot of people are aware of e.via and I would just like to spread the word about her and hopefully make her more known.

        » How come I can't see the album covers for her albums and singles?
        Because I feel that, at this point in time, I cannot put it up and make it look nice. Although, I did include the covers in with the downloadable files. If there's a high enough demand, I'll get over it and post the covers on here.

        » Why LiveJournal?
        It's easier for me to edit and keep track of.

6th-Feb-2012 03:30 am (UTC)
omg! Thanks a lot. Your introduction about her "the fastest women rapper in Korea" seems intriguing. Is her female counterpart of Outsider ?^^. I want to know more about her *dl-ing.

Thanks for such an accomplished post!
6th-Feb-2012 03:31 am (UTC)
btw she does look CUTE! A rapper that looks like a Japanese teengirl idol =D. Are you a fan of hers?

i would definitely say she's the female counterpart to outsider although i favor her more only because her flow seems to be better as well as her speed. :3

and yes, i am a fan! ♥ i love her music!
6th-Feb-2012 04:25 am (UTC)
not downloading anything bc i already have all of it but omg this is awesome, tyvm for taking the initiative to introduce her to people. she deserves the recognition she gets; she's hella talented.

thanks for this! ♥

thanks! this is great.
just wanted to point something out though..

"Real Name: Lee Ok-joo (박정아) "

the korean part says "park jung ah" so i'm confused. haha.
6th-Feb-2012 05:56 am (UTC)
ahh, honestly, i just copied and pasted it from her profile on the genasia page. ;; is there a way to put her name into hangul instead? :3
6th-Feb-2012 07:26 pm (UTC)
이옥주. I think maniadb is a better place to get info on Korean artists.

Hi baka_tenshi,

First, I just want to say thank you for sharing Heartsdales discography because it is so hard to find on the internet right now. Plus I want to apology to you for posting DVDISO Heartsdales - The Legend. I was out of line and I should have ask for your permission first before posting it. Again I very sorry. I want to ask you if you knew anyone that had the discography of twenty4-7, Ya-Kyim, Jamosa and Aria because you can not find them anywhere on the internet. If you can find them and putting them on your livejournal cute_sound you will be a god. Any ways thank you so much for taking the time to read this e-mail. I really do appreciate this.

your friend,
