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…

SISTAR Is Absolutely Slaying Their Teasers For “I Swear”

Fotor081911351-800x450

This may be one of the rare times where what a SISTAR song sounds like excites me more than what it will probably look like (which is pretty unbeliveable considering how on point the looks are here). Horns are always welcomed in summer jams, especially when they pair so well with Hyorin’s voice, so the Duble Sidekick production…

Waifu Wednesday: Miryo

Jo Mi-hye (better known by her stage name Miryo) is a South Korean rapper. She is best known for being a member of K-pop group Brown Eyed Girls.

Let’s be clear. There are “K-Pop rappers” and then there are rappers in K-Pop. Most of the former are incredibly pretty girls who can’t hold a note but are given a bunch of lines to say really fast as an excuse to get them on stage. Then, there’s the…

SM Entertainment And Amoeba Culture Belatedly Confirm The Choiza-Sulli Relationship That Everyone Already Knew About

choiza_sulli

In news which is only slightly less surprising than the sun rising, both SM Entertainment and Amoeba Culture have confirmed that Choiza and Sulli are indeed in a relationship. Turns out, wallets don’t lie.

SM Entertainment’s statement was short and vague, as if the label would literally rather talk about anything else at the moment (which is probably true):

“Sulli and Choiza are of the…

Review: Orange Caramel - “My Copycat” Is Predictably (And Unpredictably) Marvelous

At this point, Orange Caramel operates in a gleeful paradox. The group is consistent but their concepts are not like anything else in the K-Pop scene. They don’t shock but it’s incredibly hard to predict what they’re going to do next. The only thing that can be confidently predicted about each Orange Caramel release is that it will be memorable and it will stick in your head for days. “My…

SECRET’s Hana Changed Her Name From Zinger Because Of A Damn Burger

Death by Zinger is a Thing.

Death by Zinger is a Thing.

To be fair, this is probably a fortunate coincidence for Hana because “Zinger” is a horrible name for a pop star. The real lesson? Don’t compete with fast food chains for nicknames names. You’ll lose.

On the August 15th episode of JTBC’s “Witch Hunt”, Hana revealed that the reason she changed her name from Zinger wasn’t because of artistic maturation or a sudden realization that “Zinger” sounds…

SECRET’s “I’m In Love” Dance Practice Video Somehow Outshines The Official Music Video

sec

As good as the music video for SECRET’s “I’m In Love” is, it (very fortunately) pales in comparison to the humanity-validating masterpiece that is the dance practice video.

One almost has to feel bad for music video directors. They try so many different camera angles, so many different cuts and so many different outfits and yet…

KARA Releases A Nothing MV Teaser For “Mamma Mia”

KARA has a pretty critical music video coming out soon for “Mamma Mia” but it doesn’t appear that the group doesn’t want to tease much with it’s new teaser.

I mean, I think this entire thing was culled together from filler shots (or at least, I hope it was).

Things I’ve gleaned from KARA’s “Mamma Mia” teaser:

It features a lot of…

Waifu Wednesday: Sunhwa

Han Sunhwa is a South Korean idol singer, dancer, actress and model. She is best known for being the maknae of impossibly glorious K-Pop group SECRET.

As accomplished as Sunhwa is on stage (and Lord knows she is) her most impressive feat may have nothing to do with SECRET. Her turn on Invincible Youthsomehow transitioned Sunhwa from an afterthought to an incredible draw as the girl shrewdly…
