BoA's Releasing a Japanese Album About Society's Pressure on Women in Their Thirties

BoA, Queen of K-Pop™, is back in a big way in 2018. From her first-ever reality show in South Korea (Keyword #BoA) to an already promising-sounding single on the way later today (January 31) called "Nega Dola," to a long overdue full-length comeback, she's got more than enough planned for yet…


Loona Go Won One & Only LOOΠΔ

'One & Only': Go Won, the Eleventh Member of LOOΠΔ, Makes Her Escape From Eden

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5qwcYL8a0o The LOOΠΔverse is expanding yet again, this time with the eleventh member of the twelve lovely ladies of LOOΠΔ. (No idea what I'm talking about? Consult this first.) And this time around, it's getting stereognostic. Go Won is the latest girl to be…


Yuri Always Find You Raiden

'Always Find You': Girls' Generation's Yuri Goes EDM With Raiden (in English!)

Girls' Generation might be on hold indefinitely, but that isn't stopping the girls from killing it on their own. 28-year-old singer and award winning-actress Yuri — one-half of "Secret," one of the fiercest, most hair flip-filled songs ever released as part of SM Entertainment's weekly SM Station…


Jonghyun Poet Artist SM Entertainment

'Poet | Artist': Jonghyun's Final Album, the Premature Death of an Idol & the Stigma of Mental Illness in South Korea

"Always be with you." I'll be the first to admit, as I find it tacky to feign fandom after a famous person's death: I'm not a Shawol, or even a SHINee fan for that matter. Not because I don't like their music, but because I'd never invested my time in the group properly to begin with, beyond having…


Cheryl Tweedy Cole Fernandez-Versini Payne Is at the Center of a K-Pop Controversy

Not since Lee Hyori's "Get Ya!" was accused of ripping off Britney's "Do Somethin'" over a decade ago has a South Korean music scandal felt so specifically tailored to my personal interests. Sunmi, formerly of the Wonder Girls, is back with a follow-up to her incredible, fiery break-up bop…


Luna Amber f(x) Lower SM Entertainment SM STATION

'Lower': f(x)'s Amber & Luna Go Down on the Dance Floor

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zjp0mdMeIPU Amber and Luna are one-half (at one point, two-fifths) of f(x), one of South Korea's great girl groups of the late '00s and beyond, known for their eclectic and electric sound and style. Unfortunately, the group's gone quiet ever since the release of…


Momoland Great Bboom Bboom

'Bboom Bboom': Momoland Deliver 2018's First 'Great!' Goofy Bop

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQGRg8XBnB4 Meet Momoland, one of the newer rookie troupes on the South Korean girl group scene. And, evidently, a bunch of damn dorks. The girls were first slapped together as a seven member group through a reality TV survival program called Finding Momoland back…


Loona Yves Chuu Heart Attack Girl's Talk Blockberry Creative

'Heart Attack': Chuu, The Cute New Member of LOOΠΔ Arrives - And She's Got A Big Ol' Lesbian Crush

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVVfMFS3mgc The LOOΠΔverse is expanding - and it's getting way gayer. As of Thursday (December 28), we now have Chuu - the adorable tenth member of LOOΠΔ, the still-yet-to-debut South Korean girl group that has unveiled each one of its twelve members individually…


BLACKPINK SBS Gayo Daejeon So Hot Wonder Girls THEBLACKLABEL Remix

Only Gang to Run the Game in High Heels: Blackpink Cover Wonder Girls' 'So Hot'

First of all, I hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas. Unless you don't do that, in which case, I hope your December 25th was fantastic for no particular reason at all. Mine was predominately dedicated to chasing around a new puppy, which is probably why I hadn't gotten around to writing…


HyunA Lip Hip Thanx Single

'Lip & Hip': HyunA Delivers the Horny, Porny & Polarizing Pop Anthem We Deserve

In a world full of cutesy schoolgirl concepts and aegyo-filled choreography, Queen HyunA is a breath of sleazy, sex-starved air. Barring a handful of exceptions, K-Pop exists within a fairly conservative bubble, rarely pushing the envelope in terms of sexuality. HyunA, however, flicks a middle…


Loona K-Pop Girl Group Kim Lip Cheorry Odd Eye Circle Loona 1/3 Korean Pop

LOOΠΔ Is Already One of K-Pop's Most Exciting New Girl Groups - And They Haven't Even Debuted Yet

We need to talk about LOOΠΔ. More and more girl groups and boy bands are being spat out from the South Korean pop idol conveyer belt each year. But what happens when a group arrives...one member at a time? The roll-out strategy behind LOOΠΔ, the still yet-to-debut 12-member (casual) South Korean…


EXID Full Moon

'Full Moon': EXID Shines Their Light and Leaves 'Em Shaking (Review)

Earth might be canceled, oh...any day now, but EXID's already found their bliss out of this world. To be fair, it hasn't entirely been rainbows, sunshine and selcas for the five piece South Korean girl group: poor, sweet lead vocalist Solji was banned from promoting with the other four girls after…
