How is this Sexy Love?

2 09 2012

Oh dear God.  What an atrocity to the good name of Kpop.  Guys, I’m going to save you a waste of five minutes of your life that you will never, ever be able to get back.  Don’t bother watching that PV for T-ara’s “Sexy Love.”  Just… don’t.  Read the rest of this entry »





On HwaYoung and T-ara

2 08 2012

You’ve all been informed on the T-ara scandal by now.  If not, allkpop has a great briefing on the situation.  I didn’t want to elaborate too much on this (at all, actually), but what needs to be said needs to be said.  I’ve heard a lot of different opinions on this, from complete passiveness to absolute fury.  Here’s what I think: Read the rest of this entry »





K-Round Up: Sunny Hill, MBLAQ, Rainbow Pixie, T-ara, and Teen Top

16 01 2012

Just like my H!P Roundup, to save a ton of posts and time, I’m rounding up the latest Kpop music videos into one post.  For the most part, I’m thoroughly impressed with the latest releases, which means Kpop’s 2012 is off to a great start!

Sunny Hill – In Praise of the Grasshopper

I’ll start with my favorite of this batch.  I started to notice this group when they did “Mamma Mia” with Narsha, and it was a very, very bad impression.  In fact, it was by complete chance that I stumbled upon “Midnight Circus” and I was hooked.  It’s such a good song and so very different.  That’s what I like about Sunny Hill, they are very different from your normal Kpop act.  This release is the first I’ve heard with their male member, Janghyun.  While it’s not a huge part, he writes the incredibly intriguing music for the group.   Read the rest of this entry »





Latest Kpop Musings

11 01 2010

There’s way too much that goes on on a daily basis to keep up with Kpop.  I like rounding it all up at once.

First of all, the new friggin huge boy group, who REALLY seems like the male SNSD, ZE:A, is a cheap rip-off every other Kpop boy group out there.  Track one, “Love Coach”: Hello, every single song Super Junior’s ever done and half of SS501 and T-MAX.  Track two, “New Star”: [a failed attempt at] BIG BANG, newer Super Junior, and all of them new hip hop groups that debuted this year that I haven’t kept up with.  And the title track, “Maseltov”?  Wai hallo thar 2PM, and even more pathetic, f(x) and 2NE1.

The group completely lacks originality, so if you’re wondering whether or not to bother with them or not?  Don’t.  It’s so not worth it.
