BoA Talks About Her Hardships as a Celebrity and Netizens Feel the Need to Bitch


I saw the article on NB about a week ago but didn't read it because it was around the time that I rage quoted that blog for the moment. I was looking at Asian Junkie, read this, and well, guess who wants to add their two cents right? If netizens have to add their 50,000 cents as well as snatch away a good amount of my brain cells well I should have a right to whack them back into reality.

Birth of a Beauty Episodes 5-9 Review


I apologize for delaying the review of these episodes, as I have been busy. But I will make it up to you now with my review on episodes 5-9. The plot thickens quite a bit in these episodes, and I'm starting to love how it turns out.

Re: "Don't Like My Bias?": Dear AKF and Kpopalypse, I FINALLY See the Forest for the Trees


AOA became one of my top groups this year, I had always followed them, but this year really knocked them out of the ball park (in a good way) with Mina being my fave. A few days ago some of us Mina fans were missing her in the "Like a Cat" dance practice vids, and some people saw it fit to "let us know" that AOA would be a whole lot better with Mina out of the group because she "dances lazy." Of course I defended her as I would with any idol (and I'll get to why in a second) but then I remembered this great article by Anti Kpop-Fangirl and Kpopalypse and it occurred to me that I really shouldn't give a fuck.

G-Dragon Reportedly Dating Kiko, Taeyang Sticks Up for His Boy

G-Dragon has been spotted on a "date" with Kiko I don't know who Kiko is (and I don't have the time to look it up) but if he's happy with her, go for it man! Taeyang, with him and GD  being besties , stuck up for him when a reporter pressed him on the subject. Although what he says about only South Korean idols having to defend their personal lives is bullshit because even American artist have to do that, I do respect him sticking up for GD. 

Amber May Possibly Have a Solo Debut in February

Via Soompi.

All I hope for, is that she sings. I've always preferred Amber's singing over her rapping, because her singing voice is very pretty and distinguishable to me. Nothings set in stone yet, but if she does make a solo debut, I hope she sings.

BAP Filed a Law Suit Against TS

This is one thing I'm NOT thankful for this thanksgiving.

American music sucked this year because of the never ending bland, boring, and shitty (no pun intended) butt songs. K-pop sucked this year not because of the music, it's actually been pretty great this year, but because of the never ending turmoil of everything. Let's pray that 2015 is smoother. 

[Update] What Are You Guy's Thankful For?

It's Thanksgiving today in the U.S. In regards for k-pop. I left a big thanks on AKF but in regards to groups in general:


  • I'm thankful for BTS, especially Jimin
  • I'm thankful for F(x) and their great music
  • I'm always thankful for Onew
  • I'm thankful that 2014 didn't suck ass for k-pop in terms of music
  • Of course I am thankful for my other authors that cut out time of their own in order to write for this blog.
For other Korean entertainment related stuff, I'm thankful for Han Ye Seul's return to the acting world and for "Birth of a Beauty" being a highly enjoyable drama.

For those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving feel free to comment on what you're thankful for this year.

"Stop Stop It" is Better Live

Seriously:



You get to see the choreography better, plus all of the members look absolutely fantastic here. Two thumbs up.

Here's some AOA if you're into them:

[MV Review] MAMAMOO - "Piano Man"


I could just write "Awesome" and call it a day but for reviewing purposes I won't.

[MV Review] Hyolyn X JooYoung - "Erase"


Taking a break from groups, I decided to check out Hyolyn and JooYoung's latest collaboration.

BAP Should Really Go Back to Metal/Hip-Hop


See the beauty of the above video? Do you hear the power exerted through the members? Do you hear the amazing beat? Do you hear the amazing guitars? I've been a fan of BAP since their debut and I can tell you one thing, this is their bread-and-butter. Big Bang were sort of like BAP, but BAP really made the hip-hop thing popular. It seems after them, all of these hip-hop groups started debuting, with the only standouts being Bangtan and now HOTSHOT because they were able to take the BAP formula and twist into something their own. BAP are, in some cases, trend setters and my stance on them being the best male rookies of 2012 still stand tall and clear.

Taemin is Hot



Seriously that's a real good Taemin pic. Probably the best styling ever on him. I never really knew why he always wrecked suho_ftw's bias list but I now see it, because he's wrecking mine.

Jimin and V Get MEGA Trolled For a Photo-Shoot

BTS did a shoot with W Magazine and the results for Jimin and V were with a  thousand lolz.


Wtf IS this?

AOA Hint the Next Possible Music Fad in K-Pop

In 2011 it was auto-tune, in 2012 it was dub-step, in 2013 it was fart-synthesizer, in 2014 it's trap.  What could be the next musical trend for 2015?

AOA might have a possible answer and it's in the first 5 seconds of their "Like a Cat" song:




What do you hear?


[Update] Fappers Help Hani Which Helps EXID

It was recently reported that the following Hani fancam for the latest jam "Up and Down" reached 1 million views. A fancam reached 1 million views!!!!


Okay, so a lot of people find Hani hot. But oh no guess what else is happening?

[Mini Review] Hi Suhyun's "I'm Different" is Still Pure Jazz Perfection


I already raved about this song in a past single review before the MV came out. Long story short I love the song it's great, definitely one of my faves of the year. The MV is freaking cute. Since Lee Hi and Suhyun are around the age of high school girls and crushing on boys weirdly is normal around that age, it's far more believable then watching twenty-five year olds trying to act like their fourteen and it's their first crush. The MV is also funny as hell, and has a nice feel to it with the cinematography and where and how it's shot. It seems like one of those one-episode romantic-comedy dramas. The girls are funny and cute in this, and Booby is hot. Overall, a highly enjoyable release for me.

Diamonds? Yeah, right.

So, we all know about EXO's shit year with Kris and Luhan leaving. Even though they had a super successful year in 2013, we can all agree 2014 was sad for them. 'Overdose' was the last album that you'll ever hear and/or see OT12 together. We got some hope when a Korean media outlet stated that EXO would be having a comeback in January but that was all crushed (no more dream for y'all, EXO-Ls) when SM Entertainment denied it the same day. But they are confirmed to having a comeback in 2015, though the date is not yet set.

Before all of these reports of them having a comeback, a month prior to be exact, we see Tao on Instagram. The picture was of a Cartier bracelet with ten diamonds and the caption (translated) was as follows under the jump.


Male Visuals: Timoteo/Moonkyu (HOTSHOT) Just Being Hot

 Enjoy some Moonkyu.



You guys knew it was coming. Or maybe you didn't, bottom line is, I hope HOTSHOT lasts a long time for my k-pop's sake. Sources at the bottom of the post.

Female Visuals: Seung-Yeon (KARA) Fancams


Switching out the "fanservice" with "visuals" even though its the same thing, this is basically the something as "Female Fanservice." Every now and then cha_cha and I will post up female and male "visuals." The female in speaking today is Han Seungyeon of KARA, a girl who gets a lot of love on this site. Even though Hara is my KARA bias and Taeyeon is my ultimate female bias, I still think Seungyeon is the most attractive female in k-pop with her distinguishable hammie look and powerful thighs that are so rare in k-pop. After all, who doesn't love hamsters?

Up next will be male, but ladies first everyone! This is just a bunch of quality Seungyeon fancams I found enjoy!

[MV Review] GD X Taeyang - "Good Boy"


As a big time GD fan, I have to say that 2013 wasn't his best year. 2009 and 2012 were great years for GD. Taeyang's "Eyes Nose Lips" has potential to be a great ballad but fell short for it's painfully slow vibe and the insertion of a trap beat. A freaking trap beat in a ballad. LOL. However, "Good Boy" makes up for it.

[Album Review] Lovelyz - Vol. 1 "Girls' Invasion"


Miju, Babysoul, JIN, Soojung, Jiae, Jisoo, Kei, and Yein

BTS's Dark&Wild album review has been in the drafts for a while, mostly because I wanted to review another album before I posted theirs. Lovelyz is worthy of this album review in my opinion because their debut album is pretty damn great. At first I had my doubts on them, because they had that j-idol look which isn't bad if you love j-pop, but I really only enjoy Perfume and Capsul's music. However their music is like a twist on j-pop (at least their more electronic numbers) and it's a good twist. And yes, this will be relatively short.

[MV Review] Nicole - "MAMA"


Nicole's solo was even better than I expected.

[MV Review] Lovelyz - "Candy Jelly Love"


Song wise I think this is a very pretty song. It's reminiscent to what I think Apink would do if they ever went techno/electronic. I don't think it's anything amazing, however it's definitely not terrible by any means.

MAMAMOO Comeback



I don't care about vocal wank since I grew up on vocal wank and therefore it doesn't affect my views on the song because half the time I don't even notice they're vocal wanking. If you don't like vocal wank then you won't like this song, but if you're like me where you couldn't really care less what notes are being hit (as long as their not over done) or you enjoy vocal wank along with big jazz sounding music, this will be right up your alley. I personally think MAMAMOO are the best female rookies of the year so far.

Salty ELF's and Sungmin's Fianceé


She reminds me of Yoona a bit.

I didn't even know he was getting married until like ten minutes ago. Apparently he made the announcement back in October that he's marrying Kim Sa Eun who's an actress in December. I don't know how that slipped under my radar but congratulations to the soon-to-be-married couple! But in any situation involving fans not getting a chance to marry their idols, some backfiring happened.

Oh! And Just a Friendly Reminder That...

This is not a news blog. If you want a news blog I highly recommend Soompi, they're great at getting info out. This is a blog where I post stuff I like, so yeah it's a biased blog, but that's not to say I'll flat out bash a group, be a delusional stan to another group, or approach stuff with an illogical mentality. I'm not going to be dishonest here, I'm not going to claim that I'm unbiased when I'm not (we all know the blogger I'm talking about) so at least you know coming onto here that you're going to get mostly SHINee, F(x), BTS and music video reviews from me. Whatever Cha_Cha feels like blogging about and mostly 2NE1 material from Lee_MiCha along what other stuff we felt like/had time for blogging. If you think this blog sucks or whatever start up your own blog, or email me about how you can make this blog "soooo much better" which will basically be your way of saying "Let me write on this piece of shit blog so that I can make it sooooo much better!" Besides, I want some writers with new ideas. And no, I'm not taking a stab at Cha_Cha or Lee_MiCha because I know they're currently not in the position to blog at the current moment. 


Peace!

Expect Articles to Get Shorter

I'm focusing on grades at the moment, however I still want to keep the blog going. Cha_Cha will be coming back and she's always done shorter articles and Lee_MiCha will post whenever she can. For the past few months I've been pouring my heart and soul into articles but I just can't cut the time for them anymore. Maybe around Christmas break I will. Overall, MV reviews will get knocked down to about three paragraphs, and an increase in me posting random shit from tumblr along with fap post for both straights and gays depending on what gender/sexuality you identify with. I had to get the last "rant" articles left because those won't be coming back anytime soon unless it's just a really bad situation waiting for my two cents. Expect re-designs in December.

12 Things Netizens Can Do So They Can Stop The Drop in Brain Cells Amongst Blog Readers Using Taeyeon's Recent Instagram Fiasco


Taeyeon is basically turning into the T-ara of SNSD these days, because netizens can't seem to shut the fuck up about whatever she does.

[MV Review] Got7 - "Stop Stop It"


GOT-SEPTION!

*NOTE*
I'm going to nip this in the bud before I get asked this in the future. I only review songs on here that I like. I don't find use in reviewing songs I don't like (unless they come from bands I'm a fan of then it's sort of mandatory.) This is why most reviews on here earn a four's and fives out of five. It's not me blindly liking every k-pop song out there (I haven't reviewed every k-pop song in the first place) it's just me reviewing and praising stuff that I like.

[MV Review] MADTOWN - "YOLO"


Hey guys, I know this is old as hell, but my friend linked this to me and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to review this wicked song! 

Why Do Companies Try to Make Netizens Hate Their Idols?

There is a difference between media play and being a complete and total dumbass.

Media play.

Being a dumbass.

Oh and Fans being a little too nosey.


Jimin's Ass

I can't believe it. I'm doing an ass appreciation post. 


Jimin puts the "Bang" in Booty Proof Boys Bangtan Boys.

Who IS This Girl?

I dunno who she is, maybe she's a trainee, but I do know that when she smiled in Got7's latest teaser, I my face was like JB's.



If she's a trainee then I can't wait for her to debut.

Got7 Just Keep Getting Better



I can already tell this is going to be a good song and video. JB is so adorable. Sorry for sounding gay, but that girls smile is whimsical. 

[Rant] Ugh.

Remember that post cha_cha did for our anniversary? Remember when she marked the day I snapped? Remember how ever since that one day I honestly haven't given a fuck about who disagrees with my opinions on this blog. Will I've snapped again, and I've come to the conclusion that is this: netizens and commenters suck even more ass than I thought.

Dear Korea, Please Fix Your Shitty Law System

I've complained about the Chicago and American law systems too (not on here) but dude, seriously? Fix that shit, now. 

Nicole Releases "MAMA" Teaser


I know B2M said her image would be different but I wasn't expecting something as edgy as this. It looks pretty cool and I'm looking forward to the release overall. I can't help but feel as if she's slightly trolling her mom by calling her song "Mama." However, she also might be slightly trolling/paying amends to KARA for "Mamma Mia." So who knows. On an unrelated note, I'm really starting to notice her resemblance to T-ara's Eunjung in this.

I'm Back-ish on Tumblr.


This blog was in desperate need for some Suho. Gif source goes to junkyeonni via tumblr.

I recently started reposting back on tumblr. It's quite refreshing actually. Nothing too bloggy just a bunch of stuff I like. Name is suho_ftw but I don't think that surprised any of you.

"I'm Different" is Pure Jazz Perfection


Song is great. It's the Lee Hi I've been waiting for! Suhyun is good here too and I like the mixture of the two voices together. I love Lee Hi and I like AKMU just fine. However this has so much soul, it even kind of reminds me of Stevie Wonder's music. It has a great melody, great bass, great singing and some great sass. Looks like the later-half of 2014 will be a good one with VIXX, HOTSHOT, and now Hi Suhyun. 

Birth of a Beauty Ep.4 Review


Best episode by far!

Sunday, November 9, 2014

[UPDATE] Moonkyu is in HOTSHOT. PRAISE DA LORD!





Birth of a Beauty Ep.3 Review


I feel kind of trolled but really excited for the next episode.

Let's Debunk This


I have already expressed my dislike for the people who release opinions on Unpopular K-Pop Opinions because I see those opinions in YouTube comments and Netizen boards. They make me loose brain cells, but this popped up, and it made me lol. The complete lack of understanding why BTS and Block B has fans from this opinioner is pretty funny.

Album Track Sunday: B2ST - "It's Not Me"


My friend linked this to me a few hours ago, and I loved it. It has a strange Spanish-y feel to it. It's very sexy as well. Kind of like what UKISS tried to do with "Quit Playing" but winded up with a "meh" song. Where that song lacks, this song exceeds in.

Lee Hi is Making a Comeback :D


I'm excited seeing as I'm a big Lee Hi fan and I liked her stuff from 2013. What' startling me the most is the fact that she looks like a completely different person. Look, I knew when you became an adult you changed, but if this is the case, I need to hurry up and turn eighteen!

DOMINATRIX CONCEPT FTW!


It would be AOA, one of 2014's best girl groups, to fulfill one of my long awaited wishes! A dominatrix concept. Yeah it's Catwoman, but it's the same difference. I've been waiting for a dominatrix concept like this, since Rainbow's great "Mach"! Super excited for this comeback!
*Side note all of the girls (especially CHOA!) look great!)

F(x) - "Pink Tape" and "Red Light" Albums: A Side By Side Comparison


This is not an argument over rather or not Pink Tape is better than Red Light and vice versa, because let's face it, there is no clear winner. I still stand on my opinion that RD is just as good, if not better (haven't decided) than PT. They're both really good albums and I recommend any music fan (more specifically a fan of weird pop) give them both a listen, even if they may not like the execution or the final product. There's a reason why a lot of k-poppers name PT and now even RD as one of their favorite, if not their absolute favorite, k-pop album. They're just that good. 

While listening to the PT and RD albums (and I've listened to them A LOT) I've noticed that SM tried to copy the pattern they did for PT with the RD album, and it definitely worked. I'm not saying the albums are carbon copies of each other at all, this is just something fun I thought of exploring especially since it comes from my favorite girl group and two of my favorite albums of all times. This will also be a chance for me to get out a semi-proper review of the albums while remaining short. If you like F(x) and think they're great and that their albums are great as well, then you'll enjoy this article just fine. If not, well you can either read it anyway so you can see if F(x) appeals to you.

[NSFW???] asdfghjkl J-HOPE!

Jolin Tsai - "Play"


Jolin Tsai's been on my radar since AKF linked her song, "Fantasy" when he reviewed GP Basic's shit song. I found that it really did cleanse my eyes and ears and she released "Phony Queen" and "Now is the Time." Both songs I really  liked but "Play" takes to cake musically and video wise.

"Play" is just a boss song all around. In fact, this is what I expected 2NE1 to release earlier this year. It exudes confidence and has an addictiveness to it. The video is also hilarious with Jolin doing tuns of wacky and fun things and if you're a fanboy, there is tones to ogle at.  However I still think "Now is the Time" is a better video in the epic-ness aspects of it. I don't see where the plagiarism comes from, I can see why people would see similarities, but common now. TTS didn't invent glamorous videos, get over it SONEs.

Is Wendy Racist Or Did She Just Make a Stupid Mistake?


Okay so look, I've blogged about racism here and there. Racism happens, however one thing one has to realize is that when talking about racism, you attack the argument or what they did, not the person themselves. Wendy Impersonated Whites and Blacks...Of America (NOT Canada btw) and it's catching some fire. It's easy to say "Wendy's a fucking racist that should die!" but that's probably inaccurate and it also gets nowhere. However saying "What Wendy DID was racist." Well that's another issue that can be discussed much better and in a nice rational way. Wendy isn't the first k-pop idol to do this, not even within 2014, however it's time we discussed the difference between a racist being racist, and someone unintentionally being racist and how we can grow from this and hopefully not make the same mistake.

VIXX Are Coming to Chicago


It's official, VIXX are coming to Chicago!

I had known of VIXX possibly coming to Chicago, because the lady who owns the k-pop store I buy k-pop from mentioned it to my friend (who I always go with) who's is a HUGE VIXX stan.

Glad to see Chicago getting more love (first it was BAP.) Because before it appeared k-pop groups avoided Chicago like the plague. Ugh, I rolled my eyes at the Californian fans, because every k-pop groups goes to California and they go back for K-Con. This is like, Chicago's second idol group and you guys get them multiple times of the year. Let us have some love dammit!

Wish they're coming right after grades come out. But if I do go, I'll look forward to seeing Leo the most.

[MV Review] Topp Dogg - "Annie"

[Mini Review] TTS (TaeTiSeo) - "Holler"


Since I am the only person on this planet that thinks this song is superior to even "Twinkle", fuck any other review of this song. I think it's great.

Birth of a Beauty Ep.1 Review


With the death of Lee Joon's career as an idol in the hopes of being born again as an actor, and the rebirth of my favorite Korean actress's acting career, Han Ye Seul it only makes sense that I do some sort of mini review on her latest drama.
