LABOUM-800x450 Love Sign soompi

There’s hardly a happier phrase in this blog’s lexicon than the words “Laboum Comeback”, and now, after having graced our springtime with the official anthem of the Trumpenreich, “Journey to Atlantis”/”Imagine More”/”Fresh Adventure”, they will grace late August with new single “Love Sign”. And, OMG, Soyeon’s gone blonde! AND Yulhee’s got a new hue too: […]


Call them what they are: Nation’s Girl Group.  Though SinB dislocated her shoulder and Yuju’s hand is in a cast, they have likely sealed the deal to own the two biggest singles of the year.  Assuredly, megahits “Rough” and “Navillera” are among the best we’ve ever heard. Glorious GFriend hwaiting!  


The barbarous jealousy of the intractably stupid, ethnocentric, and fanatical Muslims will never be placated– and it is indecent even to try. They have no right to White lands or White lives. They have their own vast regions to call home.  They have their own gazillionaire leaders from whom, if so inclined, they can demand […]


GFriend’s most manic single yet storms through the headphones and into our hearts with this retro-hyper music video: Thin on narrative and high on life, “Navillera” boldly (and correctly) decides not to deviate from the “School Trilogy” theme which has helped GFriend’s meteoric rise.  With over 60,000 physical pre-release orders for their new album, GFriend at […]


Every time there’s some epic new K-pop girl group album release approaching, I try to steal my will and spend that first glorious month of its existence listening to the whole thing twice a day.  But “real life” (lolz) always gets in the way of my grand intentions. But GFriend’s approaching summer album and first full-lengther […]


Legendary auteur and enfante terrible Michael Cimino has died.  He was seventy-seven. Starting as a screenwriter, Cimino swiftly made his way up the ladder to Hollywood ascendance after his co-writing (with John Milius) of the Dirty Harry sequel Magnum Force led to his feature directorial debut, Thunderbolt & Lightfoot, starring Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges.  His second […]


Hail Brittania! To hell with Brussels, to hell with Antichrist “elites”.  To hell with White Replacement. Britain chooses independence.  Britain chooses to keep the n*gg*as of Calais, the Turkish hordes, the Arab and Somali and Afghan rapefugees out.  Run that crap off the road of our history! Deislamify.  Kick out all “refugees”, all “migrants”, all […]

Lovelyz Jin prcm dot jp

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 […]

Windy Day title

Unlooked for, unexpected, and unspeakable: If you thought this surprise mv drop was going to be a lo-fi throwaway, think again! At first you think, “Wow, it’s kinda like ‘Me Gustas Tu’ with a bit of ‘Brand New Day’ thrown in–terrific!”  And then you get to the forest shots, and you think, “OMG! This is […]

Hosannah to the highest!  And on earth peace, through Presidents Trump, Putin, and Assad! Now is the time to consolidate the Midwest naïfs, the disaffected Sanders voters, all White people everywhere, as well as Persons of Color who wish to remain on agreeable terms with the rightful White majority in America, to unite behind the […]


We here at Chateau de Somesuch have been having an erratic couple of days on le computer:  just as strategic updates seemed finally to be breaking the molasses-slow browsing of late, I discovered Windows Media Player had vanished; and when, after a couple of increasingly distant-past system restores got that back, I discovered my poor […]

apink-music-core Luv wins 20141206

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!


declares commenter Boon Kheng Chai (Biopolymath) in the comments for this KBS OMG “Cupid” stage. Sigh.  K-pop, what bliss to live in this dawn.


It’s hard to believe it’s been four long years since Dal Shabet graced us with their second of three 2012 comebacks, “Mr Bang Bang”.  Already this was the last of their great sequence of future-pop tracks produced by their originators, E-tribe, meaning a glorious era in demented sci-fi techno girl-pop had drawn to a close. […]

It’s the SIBMAS for the new millennium! Now let’s build a bunch for the French Army and drive all the darkies, muzzies, and darkie muzzies out of France and all Europe!

Napoleon St_Bernard_David 5th version

Just keep watching. Wait for it. Waaaaaiiit for it . . . . Yeeeesss . . . .

yerin umji gfriend-61

August 19th is GFriend’s own (I shun to use the word, but since it’s historically been used here before for T-ara) “birthdaygasm”, with Goddess Yerin turning 20 and maknae Umji 18! Glorious Yerin:   Sweet Umji:   After a week’s hiatus lost to Wonder Girls, GFriend scored a third Music Bank trophy for “Navillera” to […]

LABOUM-Solbin love sign

Laboum’s “global beauty” and always-rising starlet, now hosting Music Bank and on the cusp of the release of Laboum’s first full mini-album, turns 19!   With “Journey to Atlantis” the second-greatest recording of the year thus far, expectations are high for further great success for Solbin and the gang. Our prayers and wishes are with […]

I couldn’t have tagged it better myself. A big “thank you” to Mnet for digging these old performances out of their archives and presenting them as fresh uploads.  A Pink at their 2011 origins, and still going strong. Happy birthday, Eunji!

eunji koreaboo hopefully sky

A Pink’s main vocal and Face turns 23!   How do the years pass by?  Or do they?  Here she is in her winning Inkigayo performance for “Hopefully Sky”, resplendent in her own bed of sunflowers:   And of course I pray the forthcoming autumn A Pink comeback will harvest a Triple Crown: let not […]

Comeback staawt!

  Talking reason to Jews (if that’s not a “hate crime” lolzlz)

A waxen-pale and shiny-haired Joy gleams with eyes tear-laden: further proof why Red Velvet’s Joy is one of the most eligible waifuettes of K-pop.   –And yes I for one love these outfits, much as the comments at youtube rag on them!

The evocative choreo-aristos of Oh My Gir weave their magic:

Trump Fairfield rally

White America– peaceful, patriotic, eager to leave off searching for dragons abroad and ready to assert its rights over its own homeland– is on the move. And the cat ladies, puritanical preeners, cucks, and shitskins should hush and shuffle out of the way of a great people making great progress.  To reject this opportunity to […]

It’s still Bomi’s happy birthday (at least in our timezone– Happy birthday Bomi!)), but I need to make a mental note to watch and post these Bomi and Lovelyz Kei covers of BoA’s “Atlantis Princess” when I get back in town.  I need to be going out of town just now, but since I couldn’t […]

gfriend-mcountdown1-Navillera win july

GFriend’s added another Music Bank trophy to the “Navillera” haul, now that they’ve maxed out their allotment on Inkigayo and M! Coutndown with triple crowns, but MNet gave them this hybrid “Rough”/”Navillera” stage, introduced by a montage of show wins (two Triple Crowns!), which demonstrates the hegemonic domination GFriend 2016 have established over all of […]

bomi-e1427221 koreaboo

The refulgent aegyo queen and dancing machine Sunshine Girl turns 23!     She was still 19 for “No No No”, 20 at “Mr. Chu”, in “Luv” at 21, and by 22 was ready for “Brand New Days”. And now, glorious Bomi, we renew our prayers for many euphonious, chic, and all-around magical adventures for […]

at 1:25, among other splendors:

A good perspective on the hilarious Cassidy Stay event:

And so many cute moments with JinE!

. . . Rainbow’s “Mach” is pretty entertaining: OMG Yoonhye in thigh-high boots. What are Sweetune doing these days anyway?

I missed out on reviewing the “A-ing” MV in part because, as a cover, it has a bit less canonicity for me than their previous MVs; and besides, “reggae” isn’t my thing.  Even so, it is a cute video, though not at all comparable to the majesty of “Windy Day” and “Liar Liar”, the two […]

Hey, August is already half over, so if it isn’t already time to start thinking about Christmas, when will it ever be? And if our minds are too infirm to summon up the daily delights of Christmas ’14 with “Candy Jelly Love” and “Luv” (bliss it was to live in that dawn!), we can take […]

As promised by Ron Unz, one of John McCain’s collaborator propaganda radio broadcasts from North Vietnam has been released:   Humanly speaking, we could forgive this young man for breaking under what was presumably torture in order to deliver this formulaic address.  But, rather than admit a moment of weakness and honestly show contrition, John […]


Another glorious milestone in GFriend’s meteoric rise to presumptive Nation’s Girl Group status, this time without the dramatic pause in a week’s loss as with transcendent megahit “Rough” before: Truly, A Pink’s September comeback has its work cut out for it.  With “Rough” the biggest single in Korea of the first half of the year, […]

And Seungyeon (who has been in the news of late with–Hwayoung!) looks pretty good too: But even when Younji is in the background, I can’t take my eyes off of her.  “If you look around, you’re stupid”!

This song was a very random but happy find: ever since Lodia came and went in 2014 I’d been hoping for some sort of highbrow hipster K-EDM girl group to show up as a sidedish.  With Unicorn we have the hope of a sort of Red Velvet-does-“Hurt Locker” entry. The main mv is fun, but […]

Interesting question to be sure. The greater problem as I see it are the numerous cucks who fill the ranks of the badge-gang goondas and the military. They obey orders without question, irrespective of the completely lawless nature of such orders, the fact that the constitution and the rule of law are completely overturned, and […]

Laboum performing “Sugar Sugar”, the song I thought might be their breakthrough song before I thought “Aalow Aalow” might be their breakthrough song before I thought “Journey to Atlantis”– well, by golly Solbin is hostess of Music Bank now, so things are moving for Laboum!– but even if there were few Lattes in the audience […]

Time to move to the fields, gaywad.


Like Trump says, “Get ‘im outta here!” Oh My Girl deserve to rock their awesomeness in blessed all-Asian peace.

SinB sees the future (will Trump win 365 electoral votes?):   January is the sexiest month:   Gyuri wails into the rose petals:

Stupid wordpress ate my post on this, but look at how cute Jiae is at 0:58 and enjoy the schoolgirl rush of Lovelyz’ Inkigayo Goodbye Stage!   The star portal LCD scheme (with cathedral interludes) and shimmery lavender lighting to compensate for the vernal purity of their ballerina wear adds further flare.

Laboum teaser Aalow Aalow

I would better serve my K-pop divinities, no doubt, if I were, each day, to take one performance at random, watch it through enough times to select a half dozen or so notable moments, and then annotate them for posterity.  Needless to say, no mere collection of such moments, however aegyo, can exhaust the bounty […]

T-ara’s Comeback Stages for “So Crazy” featured Eunjung with arguably the greatest hair of all time. But in some later performances, cutie Qri sported a funky French braid-bunamajig updo which constitutes one of her own career highlights:   Even if, with that outfit, she almost looks like one of the McDonald’s workers from The Fifth Element.  […]

It’s a fashionable mystery, the answer to which may perhaps rest forever tucked inside Sowon’s waistband. Fortunately, the lustrous hair and fetching manners of GFriend in this glorious year of musicality will remain, here and through many performances already in the bag and many more to come! Hwaiting!


Expanding on the glory of last week’s sweep, GFriend establishes summertime dominance: –and has already won a 2nd Inkigayo trophy too!

With this flying saucer-interior stage set, wind machine blowing, and all the luminous strobe-flashing going on, Oh My Girl are having some sort of spacey freak-out in a field of pinwheels (and the occasional wind mill proper): Check out the great Jiho tracking shot that starts at 2:13!  And plenty of good moments for the other […]

Lovelyz1 Destiny mv-800x450 soompi

It is, needless to say, that so-long-awaited song teased as “Sugar Sugar” on Lovelyz Diary Season Three when the girls were getting ghost-pranked in the studio, and released to the world on A New Trilogy as “Dear You”/”Heart, Handle With Care”: here given a lovely Hangul/Eng Sub transcription, appropriate to the song’s boundless enthusiasm, by a […]
