[Review] CL’s “Lifted” Is Catchy But Busy

CL has dropped her long awaited song/MV “Lifted.” There were a lot of elements from a lot of different people (Missy Elliot, Rihanna,etc.) and trends (Vaping, etc,), and while the cinematography of the video was amazing and my favorite part of the whole package, there just seemed to be a whole lot of pandering to everyone (MJKPOP talks about this in details) and it comes … Continue reading [Review] CL’s “Lifted” Is Catchy But Busy

AAAWKWARD! Zico & Seolhyun’s Statements On Relationship Are Different

Block B’s Zico and AOA’s Seolhyun are…idols. Dispatch broke a story that the two idols are dating and released a bunch of photos of Seolhyun going into Zico’s house: Both parties released statements, and while Seolhyun’s reps confirmed that they have something going on, Zico’s reps kind of colleagued-zoned Seolhyun. “We confirmed with Zico that the two met during hard times as senior and junior, and are currently getting … Continue reading AAAWKWARD! Zico & Seolhyun’s Statements On Relationship Are Different

BLACKPINK’s Debut MVs Seem Familiar…We’re All Thinking It

YG finally stopped the trolling and released BLACKPINK‘s debut MV’s “Boombayah” and “Whistle,” and unfortunately for BLACKPINK it seems too familiar. First we have “Boombayah” which is what I describe as a Bollywood-EDM song, and quite frankly it reeks of 2ne1. Aside from that the song was frivolous with a lot of ad-libbing and a bit disjointed with it’s transitions. Not good. Then there is … Continue reading BLACKPINK’s Debut MVs Seem Familiar…We’re All Thinking It

#SaveHenryLau: ELFs Share “Proof” That Henry of Super Junior Is Being Mistreated On Twitter

Henry Lau is in danger y’all! Well…not really, but Kpop half lost it’s mind yesterday when Henry accidentally added “former” in front of ‘Super Junior M member,’ to his Weibo description. He took to his twitter to assure fans it was a miss type, but that didn’t stop them from starting a #SaveMarinaJoyce-esque hashtag, alleging that the singer in some sort of trouble. From #SaveHenryLau blossomed a crop … Continue reading #SaveHenryLau: ELFs Share “Proof” That Henry of Super Junior Is Being Mistreated On Twitter

Lil’ Yachty’s “Tribute” To Big Bang Is A Thing That Happened

I’ve heard of Lil Yachty. Not a fan AT ALL. Not really believing he is an actually fan Big Bang or that he has even heard of them before this video. But 88Eising, a platform for introducing Asian artists (musicians, rappers, photographers, etc.) enlisted Lil’ Yachty to pay tribute to Big Bang… Continue reading Lil’ Yachty’s “Tribute” To Big Bang Is A Thing That Happened

The Courts Came To Their Senses, Kang In Will Go To Trial For DUI/Hit & Run Case

It was originally announce that Super Junior’s Kang In would be let off with just a slap on the wrist for his hit and run and second DUI charge, which was shocking and an obvious case of celebrity privilege. But, it looks like the courts and police were under a bit of pressure from the public and have decided to send Kang In’s case to … Continue reading The Courts Came To Their Senses, Kang In Will Go To Trial For DUI/Hit & Run Case

Rania’s Makestar Account Closed, Which Confirms My Theory About Alexandra

Back in November girl group Rania announced the addition of Kpop’s first black idol, Alexandra. At first it sounded like Korea and Korean music was at the beginning stages of incorporating real diversity to reflect it’s new, international fanbase. However, that ray of hope quickly got blacked out. Rania released their MV for “Demonstrate“ immediately after the announcement, but Alexandra was nowhere to be found, the reason allegedly being … Continue reading Rania’s Makestar Account Closed, Which Confirms My Theory About Alexandra
