Uh. What?

25 03 2012

I’ve been an AKB48 fan for years.  I haven’t blogged much about them because… well, I was always more concerned about H!P and I didn’t know any of their names, so “the one with this coloured bow” became a bit difficult to blog about.  However, last year I started to get really attached to the group when their singles got really awesome and Morning Musume’s became really awful.  I started to learn names and develop favorites in AKB.  And the first of both of those was Maeda Atsuko….

Who just announced her graduation from the group.  She’s been the most popular member nearly from the start and has been in every single the group has ever released.  I mean, what?  I know she’s busy, but damn, she’s the top of the top.  Maeda Atsuko is a household name.  The most popular member of the most popular idol group in Japan?  Good God.  It’s evident that this was her own choice, but I don’t know what Aki-P is thinking letting her go through with this…. I’m super depressed.

I wish her luck in acting, which is what I’m assuming she’s leaving to focus on… but I don’t care for her as much in acting as I do in AKB.  Ugh.  I hate graduations.

Takamina, if you even as much as think about graduating, there will be hell.





It’s here It’s here It’s HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve been holding out reviewing SHINee’s new album, Sherlock, until the day the music video came out.  Today is that day.  They also made their live comeback on M! Countdown today as well.  Oh, what a glorious day.

You probably don’t know because I haven’t talked about them much on my blog, but SHINee is my favorite Kpop group.  Boys and girls included.  I just haven’t talked about them because, well, they haven’t done anything significant in over a year.  Their Japanese releases, you say?  Please, those are all a joke.  We all know that.

So the patient, dedicated Shawol I am, I waited and waited and FINALLY almost a year and a half later, THEY’RE FINALLY BACK.  And I am loving it.  Check out the music video for “Sherlock” below! Read the rest of this entry »





Okay, okay. I love it.

The PV for Morning Musume’s latest single and leader Niigaki Risa’s last, “Renai Hunter” is out.  While the video isn’t spectacular, the song… for the first time in years…

I absolutely love it.  Read the rest of this entry »





He’s SO Pretty! [Trolololol]

18 03 2012

For their review of NU’EST’s debut single, allkpop.com closed with the note that the goddess of the group, Ren, looked strikingly similar to miss A’s leader Jia.

Yeah, they look a little bit alike.  But the troll in me just realized that no, he looks like another Kpop star; one of my favorites, actually.  I think Ren actually looks much more similar to… Read the rest of this entry »





Can. Not. Wait.

A music video teaser for SHINee’s new album Sherlock has finally been released!  GAH.  I CANNOT WAIT.  I wouldn’t hesitate to say SHINee is my favorite K-boy group.  Although their Japanese shit sucks ass, they’ve always had real quality Korean releases and the teasers for Sherlock up to this point seem to fall en suite!

The dance looks like it will be awesome, the set is a typical awkward SM set, and TAEMIN IS SHERLOCK!  SQUEE.

SM has several teasers up of the boys being silly on the set and a highlight series from the album, so if you’re not subscribed to SM Ent on youtube, you should be!  Go get excited for SHINee’s comeback THIS WEEK!!!!!

(Although if you don’t want 40 EXO teasers on your front page, I completely understand.)





Officially Addicted – NU’EST “FACE”

17 03 2012

I was trying to remain uninterested in Pledis’s (first?) newest boy group NU’EST.  Most of the time, whenever I attach myself to a group or singer right after their debut, such as Block B, Dae Guk Nam Ah, or Son Anna (for example), they either ruin their careers, go to shit just after their releases got good, or disappear off the face of the Earth.

I know many people were really looking forward to this group, but I’ve really been disappointed with After School’s Japanese releases, and as the flagship group of Pledis, it reflected onto my view of the company as a whole.  Also, I hardly even noticed the “Pledis Boys” in “LOVE LETTER” last Christmas.  So really, I didn’t care.

Out of complete boredom, though, I watched their debut music video… and wow.  I’m absolutely addicted.  (Music video inside!) Read the rest of this entry »





That a [little] more like it…

8 03 2012

EXO has released another music video!  But don’t get too excited, it’s just another teaser.  What are we on, 208 by now?  I’m bored.

However, it’s a much more up-beat and interesting style than their last “prolouge single”, “What is Love?”.  If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the music video for “History (Korean Ver.)” below!
