With their latest comeback “Touch My Body”, SISTAR proves that even their more easygoing singles can bring enough heat to power the long summer months.

If “Touch My Body” surprises, it’s with its relatively laid-back hip-pop beat. SISTAR singles usually vacillate between sensual disco numbers and energetic pop songs, so a more…

Welcome to another edition of Selca Sunday, where the various social media accounts of K-Pop idols are chronicled and preserved for future generations. In this edition, Amber Liu gloriously photobombs Girl’s Day’s Minah and validates Twitter’s very existence. Without further ado:

I don’t know how Geek Magazine got their name and I don’t particularly care. All that I do know is that they have been doing the Lord’s work. The magazine got the opportunity to work with All-Around Goddess and Eternal Love of All Things Good on This Planet Hyosung and the two brought out the absolute best of each other.

Hyosung straddling a motorcycle is the reason that humanity has sight. This…

So, yeah. How about that HyunA huh?

While most of the K-Pop world has been scrambling to get on HyunA’s when it comes to sexy concepts, the girl somehow continues to find ways to separate herself from the pack time and time again.

First, there was “Change” which was flagged with a 19+ rating because HyunA’s hips were deemed dangerous to the minds of children or something.

Following that, the…

SISTAR Aces “Touch My Body” Teaser Video (and Hyorin’s and Bora’s Teasers As Well)

I mean, it’s hard to say anything about this yet. The pseudo-western beat that dominates most of the “Touch My Body” teaser sounds nothing like the final two seconds of footage – the only bit that I assume is actually from SISTAR’s next comeback.

What I can say is that this looks like it’s going to be very, very good. Seriously, “Touch My Body”? It’s as if the marketing department at Starship…

Review: Girl’s Day - “Darling” is an Average Summer Release Wrapped in Super Sexy Packaging

girls day darling

It’s near impossible to discuss Girl’s Day without examining the dichotomy in the group’s image. What started off as a group largely defined by its insanely (and somewhat aggravating) cute image evolved into a group dedicated to all the sexiness this side of SISTAR. “Darling” splits the difference between Girl’s Day’s past and present. And while the group appropriates both elements of its image…

This was from two days ago, which is admittedly pretty ancient by social media standards, but this was too good to pass up or simply put into a Selca Sunday post.

Amber cosplaying as Krystal is pretty much the best thing to come out of the “Red Light” promotions.

This is either evidence of Amber’s…

So Yeah, I’m Keeping My Eyes and Ears on Rookie Group LODIA

Assault with deadly force.

LODIA elena effy i got a feeling cover

It’s still really early and they haven’t even released a music video yet, but rookie duo LODIA may be one to watch.

Truthfully, I generally stay away from rookie groups if for no other reason than most fail to stick around for long and most new groups blend together into one giant blur of mediocre K-Pop bleep-bloops and similarly pretty faces. However, LODIA is intriguing for several reasons.
