Weeeeeeeellllllllpppp. At this rate, Nine Muses may be better off calling itself The Muses or An Unspecified Number of Singing And Dancing Models because they are not going to get back to nine members at this rate. Star Empire has announced that Moon Hyuna, one of Nine Muses’ better singers and the second most tenured […]

In this week’s edition, Hyuna’s run of suspiciously well-lit and composed pictures continues with no end in […]

Like many things in life, my ambivalence towards the Wonder Girls’ all too ubiquitous hit “Nobody” probably owes a lot to timing. To date myself here, the group’s smash hit came out when I was in college and in a decidedly not-K-Pop phase of my music listening life (I would fight anyone who said that […]

Slow day for K-Pop news (as of this typing) so let’s just go with this delightfully vague report about a possible TWICE October surprise. It looks like there may be a music video of sorts in the works (potentially)(reportedly)(speculatively). Several representatives from the music industry claim that the rookie girl group have plans to return […]

Oh Rainbow. If only your label’s ability to market your brand was as good as your actual singles. This week, we take a look at Rainbow’s “Sweet Dream,” a song that retains some sweet replayability and a video that is wholly unnecessary. From the moment the song starts, “Sweet Dream” manages to accomplish a couple […]

As a disclaimer, this post on MAMAMOO’s latest music video “New York” is going to be fairly short for a few reasons. First, your’s truly is feeling a tad under the weather (And cranky. This review MAY* end up reflecting that). Second, “New York” is a pre-release that has all the elements of an appetizer […]

Admittedly, it’s impossible for me to not be biased when it comes to KARA’s “STEP.” And I’m not talking about biased in an “Well, everyone has an opinion, music is subjective maaaaaaaaaannnn” sort of way. I’m talking about the sort of bias that is unabashedly present and completely shameless. The sort of bias that causes […]

MAMAMOO’s incredibly charmed 2016 campaign is far from over. The group that brought everything from the year’s best self-diss track to the year’s best summer soundtrack (which they released in February, because MAMAMOO don’t play) is not done milking their spotlight for all it’s worth running circles around the genre. As is becoming routine for the group, while […]
