On Lee Hyori’s show ‘Lee Hyori’s XUunni’, Ailee made a surprise guest appearance and asked the eternal question that has puzzled mankind for the past two years: “What da fuq, why isn’t SPICA MOAR popular?”
Lee Hyori’s vanity, erhm, variety project ‘Lee Hyori’s XUnni’ takes the sexy queen of K-Pop and has her teach a group of actually talented singers and dancers in SPICA how to be good K-Pop stars. So on a recent episode, Hyori was teaching SPICA how to prepare for variety shows, a more important skill than learning the finer points of singing and dancing when it comes to being a successful K-Pop act, Ailee stopped by and Hyori asked the young diva what she thought about SPICA. Ailee’s response, per allkpop:
“I don’t understand why they’re not more popular. They all sing well, dance well, and are really pretty.”
Oh young, naive Ailee.
Leave it to a singer to completely miss the point of being a successful K-Pop group. “Singing”, “dancing” and being “really pretty” have nothing on massive ad buys, delusional fervent fan bases, and the power of pure sex appeal –
I stand corrected. Oh well, the first two. The first two definitely still apply. Hopefully, Lee Hyori can manufacture an EXO fan base for SPICA on her variety show without endangering the life of everyone involved.
Because, really SPICA is everything Ailee says they are and they deserve ALL THE ADORATION AND MONIES.
