SM Entertainment Confirms That Jessica Jung Is No Longer A Part Of SNSD (But Somehow Still A Part Of SM)

Sooooo, how is this not really, really awkward.

SM Entertainment has released a statement which, of course, makes it look like this is a much more mutual decision than what Jessica Junf implied on her Weibo.  Bottom line: Jessica is out of SNSD and the Power of Nine is now the The Slightly Less Power of Eight or something.

“Hello. This is SM Entertainment.


We are offering our position on the…

It Sure Looks Like Jessica Jung Stated That She’s Been Kicked Out Of Girls’ Generation

Yaaaaaassssseeeeee.

Yaaaaaassssseeeeee.

In what could be absolutely devastating news for Ice Princess worshipers everywhere, Jessica Jung may have gotten the boot from SNSD.

Hopefully, this be a horrible hack or something as this message was posted on Jessica’s Weibo account:

Initial impressions are this could likely be a hack (or maybe I’ve just read way too much about celebrity hacks recently). SNSD has had the same roster since…

This is a little old by now, but it’s never too late to start celebrating prematurely. Nicole Jung could be making a comeback as a solo artist, perhaps as early as October.

Even better, Nicole is in talks to sign with B2M Entertainment, home of SPICA and, more relevantly in Nicole’s case, Lee Hyori.

B2M Entertainment has clarified that Nicole hasn’t signed a contract under their company yet.…

Review: Ailee - “Don’t Touch Me” Is Some Good Ol’ Fashion Ear Candy

ailee don't touch me magazine

The best thing about Ailee is that she understands exactly what she’s good at and how to best utilize her talents. While her taste in R&B music can run the risk of sounding derivative, Ailee’s latest single “Don’t Touch Me” manages to put together a music video which is so competently made that concerns over its relative lack of creativity are washed away in waves of glamorous R&B glory.

Song Da-In (better known as Dain) is a South Korean idol rapper and dancer. She is best known for being a member of K-Pop’s resident twerk-enthusiasts Wa$$up (or Wassup for simplicity’s sake).

The holy trinity of Wassup are Nari, Nada and Dain. The group needs to exist solely to allow these three to twerk to their hearts content from now to the ends of the earth. Nari is stealthily one of…

T-ara Is Not Done Punishing Your Senses With ‘EDMCLUB’ Version Of “Sugar Free”

It wouldn’t be a T-ara comeback without fifty billion different music videos for one single but T-ara managed to do something a little different with their ‘EDMCLUB’ version of “Sugar Free.”

Instead of simply scrounging up all the leftover footage from editing and pasting it together and calling it “THE SINGLE, HYPER REMIX…

Ailee Releases MV Teaser For What Sounds Like Surefire Hit “Don’t Touch Me”

I’m not sure if I’m ready for Ailee’s “Don’t Touch Me.”

Ostensibly billed as “a British-pop rock style song” in the same sense that whatever Jessie J does is “British pop” and not “modern American R&B with a blue-eyed soul twist” Ailee’s “Don’t Touch Me” has all the workings of a really smart banger.

Those plodding keys work…

Review: T-ara - “Sugar Free” Is A Criminally Unwatchable Music Video

20140915_seoulbeats_t-ara_sugarfree

20140915_seoulbeats_t-ara_sugarfree

The best thing about T-ara’s single “Sugar Free” is that it’s a prime example of what T-ara brings to the table musically. The worst thing about “Sugar Free” is that it’s a prime example of the absolute worst tendencies of T-ara music videos.

I’m not sure how we reached this point, but T-ara may be underrated musically. “Sugar…
