With the end of the year fast approaching, it seems fitting to use the last Wednesday of the year to compile the annual list of the top Waifus in the game. The list has next to nothing to do with what a performer actually accomplished this year and more to do with ~the feels~. Most of you can probably read up until number two because you know for damn sure who the NUMBAH ONE WAIFU UF AUUWWLLL THE UNIVERSE is.
The Wonder Girls had an amazing comeback this year that I used a shit-ton of words to praise but I could have simply copy+pasted “YUBIN ON DRUMS” over and over again until I broke WordPress and saved everyone a lot of time. Because Yubin on drums.
9. Jessica Jung
Jessica was mostly off the radar music-wise in 2015 but an impending comeback means that we are about to enter the next glorious Ice (Princess) Age. May it be full of sweet, sweet shade.
I almost purposefully left Nana off these lists because she’s basically what would happen if a computer algorithm studied the human history of “beauty” and then gained enough sentience to improve on that concept by quantum leaps and bounds. Her inclusion is basically automatic (and a little boring as a result).
Soooooooo, what is up with the lack of WASSUP in the world? Because every second that Nari isn’t in the spotlight is one more second that the planet is a less worthwhile and fulfilling place to live.
I can’t really recall writing anything Eunjung-specific over the past year and that may be the biggest sin that I commited in 2015 outside of not reviewing Crayon Pop.
Momo for Rookie of the Year.
Seolhyun gets most of the AOA love but I’ve been on the ChoA hype train since the beginning and that’s not changing any time soon. Hopefully, she’ll get the chance to have a proper solo debut next year.
It has been a big year for the Nation’s Little Sister. CHAT-SHIRE ruled, “Twenty-Three” ruled, and IU’s GQ photo shoot likely made choruses of angels cry. Or was that just me?
2. Ryu Sera
True, she’s not an “idol” anymore but the former Nine Muses and eternal goddess made her own damn album and held a solo concert that looked utterly delightful. And while she hasn’t posted anything to her YouTube channel in a couple of months, it is still one of the best things on the web.
1. Wang Fei Fei
But you knew that already.
Tell me how wrong I am about everything below (except for number one, because that would be impossible).
I’ll start posting again regularly after the New Year. Apologies to the handful of people who read this thing for not being as active over the past couple of weeks. I had some personal things to deal with but I am definitely looking forward to what K-Pop has to offer in 2016.
