Top 10 Songs of 2018

The Top 60 Songs of 2018

The year is almost over, and I still loathe lists. In fact, I sat down to do this about seven times and simply couldn't do it. So...I won't. And you can't make me! Instead, I'm choosing to take you through a very cool, urban and interesting journey through my favorite songs of the year in no real…


Yubin Thank U Soooo Much

'Thank U Soooo Much': Yubin Carries the Wonder Girls Retro Pop Torch (And Wants You to Stop Talking So Much)

Tired: "thank u, next." Wired: "Thank U Soooo Much." The Wonder Girls are still thriving in 2018 - even if they aren't actually together anymore. (Too soon, I know. I'm sorry.) Sunmi's one of the best (and weirdest) soloists in the game at the moment - and Yubin's coming in hot at the tail-end of…


'Siren': Sunmi Delivers a Fierce Warning

Sunmi remains one of K-Pop's biggest weirdos, and for that, I am grateful. The 26-year-old Wonder Girls superstar has proven herself to be a very unique kind of soloist in just a short amount of time, from her re-debut with the biting "Gashina" to the slightly Cheryl Tweedy Cole Fernandez-Versini…


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…


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…


Sunmi Gashina

"Gashina": Wonder Girls Died So Sunmi Could Thrive

When the Wonder Girls — one of K-Pop's long-standing, history-making girl groups — formally called it quits after a decade earlier this year following their incredible '80s-themed comeback Reboot, their disbandment felt like a heavy loss for the community. But now that Sunmi, one of the troupe's…


The Top 20 Albums of 2015

Well, here we go. 2015 has been quite a year — personally, professionally and pop culturally speaking. I lived! I loved! I laughed! Actually, I mostly cried, because like a certain Canadian songbird, I have all of these E•MO•TIONs. (FORESHADOWING.) Anyway! We're knee-deep in list season now, and…


Wonder Girls' 'Reboot': The Other Excellent '80s-Themed Pop Album Of The Summer

Now that we, the members of the global village, have come to the general consensus that Carly Rae Jepsen's E•MO•TION is The Best (I refuse to hear anything otherwise), it's time to finally acknowledge that other music exists. Wonder Girls, the fierce K-pop fivesome foursome (for the time being) —…
