We’re saying farewell to 2014 by handing out a few honorary mentions and awards to the year’s weirdest, funniest, dumbest, and winningest moments in K-Entertainment!
The 2014 Equal Opportunity Award for ‘Being In The Right Place At The Right Time’
Runner Up: Tao
Real Life Meme of the Year
Runner Up: Kim Kardashian
Zion.T haunted our Instagram feeds, and our dreams when he bleached his eyebrows, apparently just to appear in Gaeko’s “No Makeup” MV. We think he misread the title.
The ‘It’s ‘Bout Damn Time’ Award
Most Forgotten Name In Kpop
Worst Group Name
The 2014 Yeezus Foundation Honoree
T-ara needed to follow in Yeezy’s footsteps and put a warning label on their music video for “Sugar Free,” cause all of the flashing lights were a health risk.
The Crown J Award for ‘Most Obvious Use of a Foreigner as a Prop’
Runner Up: Kang Gary
HyunA might have managed to slip this one past the public under the cover of her risqué lyrics, but she couldn’t get it past us. We’re calling her out for the absolutely pointless appearance of an oiled up black guy in her “Red” MV.
The ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ Award
Jo In Sung & Gong Hyo Jin
They deny it, but in our hearts, we know.
The G-Dragon GZB Phase Foundation Honoree
It’s clear Key was channeling G-Dragon and his no pants phase when he walked through the airport in a pair of hot pants. While it wasn’t earning him any best dressed shout outs, it did make for the most memorable airport fashion of the year.
The Daniel Choi Award for ‘Basically Ruining It For Everyone’
Dahee of GLAM
GLAM was already on it’s way off the Kpop radar, but member Dahee sealed the deal for the group when she got caught trying to embezzle money from one of Korea’s biggest names in movies and television, Lee Byung Hun.
The Orville Redenbacher Award for ‘Most Popcorn Friendly Drama’
Jessica vs. SME
Not since the invention of motion pictures has the popcorn industry seen such a boost in sales. Jessica and SM Entertainment had us all chomping down on the buttery good snacks as they let accusations, and rumors fly following Jessica’s removal from Girls’ Generation.
Most Confuzzling Music Video of the Year
We just don’t know what was happening, and a part of us feels like Super Junior didn’t either…hence the constant cries of “aiyaiyai.”
The Life Time Achievement Award for ‘Excellency in Trolling’
YG, and his mini-mes Big Bang
