All Hail The Llama Queen: A Moment Of Amber Appreciation

Amber is the rapper of the now four member SME girl group, f(x), and is a shining beacon of hope and modernity in Kpop. She is best known for being androgynous, opting for men’s clothing and a short hair cut, a concept that initially earned her a large fan base, but has since gotten her some criticism. Even I can cop to complaining that Amber was getting boring by doing the … Continue reading All Hail The Llama Queen: A Moment Of Amber Appreciation

Profound Thoughts: iKon’s Debut Is The Reason Why You Shouldn’t Rush YG

iKon finally made their debut, and well…it was something. They released two MVs, one for Empty 2.0 aka “Airplane,” and one for “Rhythm Ta.” The songs are fine, for the most part, but not unique and definitely nothing to stand up to the group’s competition, Got7 and especially Bangtan Boys. Overall, it was very apparent that they rushed to get something out to make up for a year … Continue reading Profound Thoughts: iKon’s Debut Is The Reason Why You Shouldn’t Rush YG

Dear Wonder Girls, Apologies (And Congrats) Are In Order

I’m just gonna come right out and say it, I. WAS. WRONG. I was wrong about everything from doubting your ability to bounce back from sure demise brought on by the mismanaging hands of Mr. Plastic Pants, to doubting the whole retro band makeover. With the departure of Sunye, and then Sohee, I didn’t believe that the Wonder Girls would or could ever regain what they had during … Continue reading Dear Wonder Girls, Apologies (And Congrats) Are In Order

The Unpretty Rapstar Teasers Are Just A Mess

I’ve never watched an episode of Unpretty Rapstar, I checked out after the incredibly awkward clip of Jessi’s diss rap in Season 1. And, while I am not crazy about the competition show, I can’t deny the hype surrounding it’s September return. Unfortunately, the teasers are doing nothing to add to said hype. I guess the girls each got about 20 seconds to show their “skill,” but … Continue reading The Unpretty Rapstar Teasers Are Just A Mess

[Review] Is HyunA Becoming A One Trick Pony?

I have a sort of aversion to critiquing artists like HyunA, because I do not want my opinions to be taken as “hating,” “censoring women,” “slut shaming,” or anything else along those lines. As a result, over the years, as HyunA has pushed further and further passed, let’s call them society’s, boundaries, I have maintained a tight lip. That is until now. HyunA’s latest music video, “잘나가서 … Continue reading [Review] Is HyunA Becoming A One Trick Pony?

Kim Kibum: Perhaps The Greatest Mystery In The History Of Kpop

Alleged Super Junior member, Kim Kibum, has announced his departure from the group as well as SM Entertainment with an instagram post. For the 10 years that Super Junior has been around, Kim Kibum has dodged in and out of relevance. Kim Kibum IS and WAS a mystery wrapped in an enigma and slapped with a big ol’ confusing bow. I never, and still don’t understand, what his role in … Continue reading Kim Kibum: Perhaps The Greatest Mystery In The History Of Kpop
