If I look at the K-Pop industry as a whole, I’d have to say the YG Entertainment is probably my favorite company simply because the majority of the artists I like come from their company. This being said, I was a little more than a little curious to check out their cosmetic line. However it seemed a bit gimmicky and I wasn’t totally sold on … Continue reading Moonshot BLACKPINK Cosmetics Review
The famous Korean pop artist known as 비 (Rain), has long since been my favorite music artist. I’ve been following his music since his debut back in 2002. Aside from him being insanely hot, I have always found him to be incredibly talented and ambitious. As an artist myself, I really admire his work ethic and devotion to improving his skills. There is no denying … Continue reading Bring On the Rain!
홍대 (Hongdae) is definitely Seoul’s prime location for for all things young, new and trendy. On any given day you can find indie bands playing, b-boy battles ensuing or artists drawing caricatures all outside on the streets. Being situated around an arts university, it’s no wonder there’s so much excitement. It really has a particular charm that calls to graffiti artists, hip-hop dancers and urban fashionistas. … Continue reading Writings on the Wall

The truth is, I’ve been listening to 신화 (Shinhwa) since I was a kid and completely fell in love with their … Continue reading The Legend Continues
As promised by Cube Entertainment, 4minute’s HyunA and B2ST’s 장현승 (Hyun Seung or JS) have released their anticipated 4 track collaborative mini album. I must say I was a little disappointed to discover that “Trouble Maker” is the only dance track on the album followed by three ballads that are quite forgettable in comparison. Trouble Maker The Words I Don’t Want to Hear (듣기 싫은 말) Time! (HyunA’s solo Feat. Rado … Continue reading Double Trouble
It seems that all our k-pop cuties are trading in their cutesy facades recently for a more mature look and Wonder Girls are no exception. Back from shooting their Teen Nick movie “Wonder Girls at the Apollo” and stepping away from their retro image, Wonder Girls have returned to Korea with a dark sleek sexy new look and of course a new album “Wonder World.” … Continue reading Wonder No More; The Girls are Back!
What’s a dragon without a little smoke right? Well, earlier this month k-pop star Kwon Ji Yong better known as G-Dragon and leader of boy band Big Bang, was taken in by authorities in Seoul for smoking marijuana. While I find the news to be a bit old, discussions are still forming about the topic and questions are still being asked. So, this is the 411. … Continue reading Puff the Magic G-Dragon
