Welcome to the latest edition of Selca Sunday, where the various social media accounts of K-Pop stars are compiled here for our future cockroach overlords to study in a couple thousand millennia when they take over the earth. In this edition, Jieun flawlessly stares back into the void of the camera and the camera blinks. Without further ado:

Guess what? There were a lot of K-Pop releases over the past three months. With September and the fall season rolling in, the last of the summer concepts are trickling in so now is as a good a time as any to look back and see which singles were keepers and which were duds*.

*Feel free to suggest any gems and/or abominations to K-Pop if I miss any.

And your Summer Sluggie goes to…

So, I Take It Nasty Nasty Is Like Troublemaker But With A Threesome Or Something

It’s kind of hard to take a trio seriously when it’s literally called ‘Nasty Nasty’ and seems to be the K-Pop equivalent of every click-bait Buzzfeed listicle in existence but… fuck it. Kyungri is involved so this demands some attention.

Nasty Nasty (sigh) is a group consisting of ZE:A’s Kevin, Nine Muses’ Kyungri and some rookie named Sojin (no, sadly not Girl’s Day’s Sojin). The teasers have…

So, it seems that in between being a pop star for K-Pop’s most successful girl group and being the ice princess of humanity’s heart, Jessica Jung has somehow found the time to launch a fashion line called Blanc as well.

Currently, Blanc has an eyewear line inspired by Jessica’s “favorite cities worldwide.”

For instance, in this photo below, done for the Chinese September issue of Cosmopolitan,…

Waifu Wednesday: Jimin

Shin Ji Min (better known as Jimin) is a South Korean guitarist, rapper and dancer. She is best known for being the leader and guitarist for K-Pop girl group Ace of Angels (AOA).

Truth be told, Jimin’s rapping voice bothers me. The girl can spit just fine for a K-Pop song but she has a nasal delivery which sounds like what would happen if SISTAR’s Bora was given a dose of helium while having a…

Review: SISTAR - “I Swear” Is SISTAR At Their SISTAR-iest

SISTAR’s second release of the summer, “I Swear”, is predictable and safe but it’s also damn good.

The first ten seconds of “I Swear” may be the most interesting bit of the song but what follows isn’t bad by any stretch of the imagination. The bluesy bit to start the song fits Hyorin’s wheelhouse perfectly so it’s a tad…

Girls’ Generation Urges You To #catchGG Without Saying What The Hell That Is

Maybe I missed the point of viral marketing but you generally have to give people an idea of what your hashtag is supposed to mean before you ask people to stick it at the end of every tweet that they post.

However, that’s what Girls’ Generation is trying to do with its’ purposefully vague hashtag campaign, #catchGG.

It sounds like…

Welcome to the latest edition of Selca Sunday, where the various on-goings of the social media K-Pop sphere (minus the ice bucket challenge because there’d need to be about five or six posts to shift through all that shit) are helpfully curated for humanity’s viewing pleasure. In this edition, Taeyeon finally braves instagram with a little help from her friends. Without further ado:

SISTAR Performs With Hologram Versions Of Bora And Hyorin For “Touch My Body”

SISTAR is now so popular that they apparently don’t even need Hyorin and Bora to do the heavy lifting any more.

The “group” did a live performance of “Touch My Body” but they did so without Hyorin and Bora, who were presumably busy being way too popular to deign “Star King” with their actual presence.

How you know you’ve made it:…

snsd-girlspeace-world-tour-242

At a press conference for TaeTiSeo’s upcoming reality program, a member of the press was apparently confused about what constitutes a “reality TV show’ and Taeyeon had to give an impromptu lesson on the differences between a promotional reality television show designed to promote a damn album and a documentary.

Given that this is the first reality program that Taeyeon will be involved in since…
