A Pink have returned, at what promises to be a crossroads for their career–for renewed recognition and popularity or else some sort of fade-out. With 2016’s long-awaited comeback “Only One”, A Pink seemed to hit a snag with their once dazzling popularity. 2015’s “Remember” didn’t equal the trophy-stealing triumph of their 2014 megahits “Mr Chu” […]
It sounds as though A Pink is indeed going to tap into some of their “old school” high energy dance-pop for their Summer Comeback! Regardless of what the charts will say, I expect this is going to be an immensely enjoyable addition to the A Pink canon. But we pray it also sweeps Korea by […]
A man apparently already subject to legal action by Plan A Ent for criminal activities (making false accusations? stalking?) phoned in a threat to stab A Pink members to death, resulting in a police squad sent to their dormitory. Earlier today, from allkpop: “Police personnel was dispatched by Seoul Gangnam’s Police Station after receiving an […]
Lovelyz Goddess Jin turns twenty-one! We wish Jin a very happy birthday on this young and youthful milestone! Here is Jin, back in the days of “Amusement Park” when she didn’t have any lines on stage because she had a cold when they recorded it. But we can admire Jin dance! And here is refulgent […]
The Lovelyz maknae turns nineteen! She is very special and beloved. There is in Yein a special sort of innocence and caritas which makes her presence burn like that of an angel: to contemplate her is to enter into a lovely sense of serenity and all-is-wellness. Even as she has to work so tirelessly. […]
The great Roger Moore, seven times James Bond, has died at the age of 89. Roger Moore was more than just James Bond– he did a couple of non-Bond pictures with the great On Her Majesty’s Secret Service director Peter Hunt, for example. But it is his dapper tenure as 007 from 1973 to 1985 […]
I just found out that Soyeon and Boram declined to renew their contracts. And for what it’s worth, the other members have only renewed until December, so I’m hard-pressed to think they’ll be recording new material past the mini-album due next month, the last recording of 6-ara. And since the past two mini-albums have essentially been “placeholders” (even […]
The latest A Pink Japanese single is less J-pop than straight-up pure retro K-pop recalling the dulcet musicbox funk of S.E.S. and Baby VOX, and to top off the confectionary sound A Pink has mounted a video that is a veritable orgy of Rococo hues and girlish opulence: Fans of Kara’s enormously successful Japanese run […]
The sublimity of WJSN’s 3rd single, unleashed upon last weekend’s music shows! We’ve meant a million times to honor a hot new single in this fashion (alas, poor “Destiny”, dear “Only One”!), but superrookies WJSN richly deserve this with the utter loveability and insane infectiousness of their new masterwork. M! Countdown with hives of purple […]
A Pink’s special holiday single launches with an Easter Egg-hued video full of cute thrills: With a sound that makes it an appropriate companion piece to “Only One”, “Cause You’re My Star” doesn’t go for the soaring melodicism that typifies classic A Pink singles but nonetheless weaves a sweetly dulcet spell– with the glaring possible exception […]
Deflecting whatever slump might have been feared over the year’s hiatus since “Remember”, A Pink return with a gorgeously sophisticated new single and music video, giving a mature gloss to their autumn comeback while losing none of their exquisite girlish charm. The girls’ moody housesitting routines, eating pancakes alone on the stairs or dumping out […]
It’s still the 11th in the United States of Depravity, but already Sunday the 12th has begun in Korea and thus, we wish Lovelyz Jin her happy twentieth birthday! Ne! Since I have to travel, and since I stink at setting up correctly my posts to post at a set time (wordpress seems to have […]
Irradiant and angelic, supernal A Pink soars to triumph on Saturday’s Show! Music Core with another win for “Luv”: –with perhaps their most lambent and lively stage yet. Congratulations, A Pink! God Bless A Pink, and God bless the Pink Pandas!
If keeping Europe safe and pure and civilized means 244,000,000 dead Negroids, then it means 244,000,000 dead Negroids. The same goes for China–hell, it even goes for the Arabs. The human race owes the African hominoids nothing. Not that we really need to kill that many (at least by direct means– benign neglect will of […]
Having discovered this very shortly after its release, I failed to leave remarks in its praise for hope of further collating my thoughts, not only about the “Eclipse” MV and song in particular, but about the whole epic Loona phenomenon which shows little sign of even beginning to run its course. That said, I feel […]
In further teary-eyed doings of K-pop this week, Seunghee had an emotional scene during OMG’s first Concert when she teared up while covering 2NE1’s feministyish song “Ugly”: Seunghee herself is, of course, the duckling of the Oh My Girl beauty basket, and was early on pegged with the “ugly” epitaph on Korean search engines, so […]
The final of the member video teasers for “Five” shows us Chorong nibbling on a petit macaroon and giving us yet another musical snippet: –which sounds, I suspect, like what we’ll actually get from the single– and if so, it’s a magical opening!
Eunjung was already away, on account of her role on a tv drama, and of course Boram and Soyeon are not here, but when the winner was announced, Hyomin, Qri, and Jiyeon were reduced to absolute speechlessness: After five long years of ugly hatred at home, based upon wicked little lies, at last they are, […]
The good singer Eunji goes on her “blind date” with one of those actor trainees, I guess:
I don’t really say much about Blackpink, “Uncle YG”s whippersnapper Next Gen 2NE1 “badass” K-pop girl group. Perhaps back in 2012 I might’ve been more receptive– I loved 4Minute at the time after all. And I don’t intend to measure them against some spurious “Western” standard as to some sort of punkass “keepin’ it real” […]
So which is Bomi’s real hair?
First, the fortuitious discovery of this cute video of Eunji singing her second minalbum’s hit “The Spring” in Mnet’s studio: And second, this medley of A Pink singing past hits, to whet our appetite for their forthcoming Comeback: And now: the Eunji “Five” teaser! with its throwbacks to “Mr Chu” MV as […]
Further Asian-inflected strings and pastel digipedi hints from Naeun!
My thoughts often turn back to Rainbow, so why not enjoy this fancam of sweet wifelyly Seungah dancing in a tight leather skirt?
A Pink releases the first video teaser for the forthcoming mysteriously named Shinsadong Tiger production which (we pray) will be a musical masterpiece and catapult A Pink back to the peak of popular and commercial relevance: With our florally contemplative maknae!
It’s June 18th already in Korea, which means Oh My Girl’s maknae Arin has turned 18! Sigh. It’s like you have to be an April stan these days unless you want to fall in love with a grandmother. Oh, we kid, we kid! Arin, you may be eighteen today but you are still our darling […]
It may have been A Pink’s Autumn Comeback, sonically crafted for the chilling air, but in this performance they braced themselves to bare their bellies like perhaps never before:
Japanese word for “girls” on her finger, and some motto in Korean on her foot. A potentially trolling commenter at allkpop editorializes: Through her embrace of lingual diversity, Stephanie Young is a true cosmopolitan in these parochial, intolerant times. –Snort. Well, two languages used is two more than will ever be used by a nagger […]
The moody, mooneyed Rainbow seductress pouts and outthrusts her sweater puppies amid the darkling sparkling stage for “Black Swan”: And in spite of the compromised audio that comes with these “fancams”, this is one time where the experience is not merely of scholarly note but becomes a viewing experience unto itself. You wouldn’t even have […]
“My name is Robbie Parker . . .” The screencap shows the delightful Soto family–I just adore somehow that youngest lying little minx whose eyes CANNOT HIDE the love she has for that Oscar she’s getting. But: Sandy Hook never stops giving. Until now I had never seen the interview with the Parkers that […]
A Pink sends exuberant greetings to fans in the afterglow of a Hong Kong concert, with beagle Bomi launching into a drill sergeant character and reducing her bandmates to uselessness with laughter: Plus: can you say “aurora”? lolzlozlzlolz
Now, no force on earth can move me to claim that “Happy” is up to the stratospheric standard set by WJSN’s shock-and-awe pair of previous singles, “Secret” and “I Wish”. Compared to them, this TWICE-style summer cheerleader romp is mediocre stuff. But still, this is WJSN, the supercharged, supersized, superglorious girl group that, in a […]
Happy birthday (in Korea) Jin! We hope it is your “Destiny” to have a beautiful birthday today (in Korea) on your 21st birthday– and that God shall bless all the long, virtuous, healthy, happy, and artistically resplendent days of your glorious life. We love you, Jin!
That epic sequence when it’s A Pink, Dal Shabet, Laboum, T-ara, and Rainbow in a row! And Bomi’s epiphanic “Eotteokhae” from “Petal”–magic!! Alas, no Lovelyz. And I don’t catch any Oh My Girl or GFriend either. Still, what a bracing reminder of how awesome K-pop truly is.
“I have to say, once these neuroses are wiped from the face of the earth, can you imagine how peaceful those times will be? It will literally be exactly like those Renaissance paintings, where people are reclining peacefully under trees eating grapes and sipping wine, while the golden glow of God’s love is shining down all over them.”
–writes Anonymous Conservative: In truth, feminists who could care less some nice animal was killed, will probably get all worked up over the idea there are vaginas somewhere being controlled by old white men and used to generate profits. I guess when in crazy Rome, do as the crazy Romans. The problem they ran into […]
Long ago, there was a Fiestar “Mirror” performance in seagreen costumes, and I thought it particularly fetching and meant to post it. But I always recalled it as an Inkigayo stage, and so whenever I looked for it again at SBS’s channel and couldn’t find it, I figured it must’ve been lost from youtube. But […]
Laboum’s chic ZN turns twenty-three! But has she changed since she was almost twenty-two? With a Music Bank trophy under their svelte shoulders, Laboum might be set upon their busiest year yet. We wish ZN much mirth and merriment on this day, and all the days ahead. Don’t forget to close the toothpaste! Happy birthday, […]
At Vox Popoli he comments: There are two sides to ‘Demographics is Destiny’. The Birthrate and the Deathrate. For White/European peoples the first is fine, because we are very good at inflicting the second. Indeed. It is time for all Western nations to unleash their firepower against incoming “refugees”, and put their forces to work […]
The 2015 summer hit that outperformed SNSD’s “The Party” and spent two weeks atop the soompi charts: here with a symphony of stage lights that puts Bomi and crew at 0:21 into their own undersea-like heaven. And Naeun so sportif in those high-waisted track pants!
Of course maybe flying dolphins started somewhere else and they’re just one of those things, like “dreamcatchers”, that have caught on with the world of K-pop. But pretty much everything today in the drugged-out, queerified, Jew-led “Western” world is such Satanic trash, even if we chanced to start some “cute” fad I guarantee it’ll be […]
Starts with one of Goddess Jiho’s best hair whips ever, and goes on from splendor to splendor!
False-ara Era 2.0 kicks off with the very pretty teaser for what sounds like a cool-sounding song. OMG and they filmed this in A Pink’s Secret Garden of Heaven too! But let us recall that SOYEON AND BORAM ALREADY RECORDED THIS SONG AND THEN DICKHEAD KKS ORDERED IT RERECORDED WITHOUT THEM. So instead of getting […]
The maknae of formerish T-ara turns twenty-four! Sigh. My heart is heavy for all the T-ara members, in this awkward and painful season as the group is essentially “dead”, but force-marched for one final comeback without Soyeon and Boram, and all under the humiliating lies and megalomaniac delusions of KKS. But whatever the future holds […]
Donald Trump is our President, and A Pink is having a June comeback. We can work for miracles– we can make them come true. Bring Youngji and the gang back together– and rid Europe and America of slimy Third World “immigrants” and “refugees”.
Dream a dancing dream with the enchantment of A Pink:
Yeoreum, Yeonjung, Dawon, and all the gang spreading shiny soap bubbles of infinite joy: [Ed. Did you literally forget your wife Xuan Yi?] I literally did not forget my wife Xuan Yi– or anybody! Anyang Bona and Dayoung and Cheng Xiao and Eunseo and Exy and Luda and Soobin and SeolA and–a nd– Mei […]
I can’t say I’m all that smitten with the song– the verses are electro-hop in the style of AOA’s “Heart Attack”, which maybe isn’t all that bad but also isn’t all that great and isn’t my cup of tea; and the chorus frankly is a bit retarded. “Mayday” sounds like a J-pop b-side, and indeed […]
It’s so cute and Christmasy– plus, we get a vertical triptych of their duo pairings. Sigh. Though I hope I do do a lot for A Pink, really in some ways I have failed them so. Like why don’t I ever watch the A Pink Comedy channel on youtube? Perhaps they peaked too soon, before […]
