HummingUrbanStereoDelicacy

Humming Urban Stereo is back with his newest album, ‘Delicacy‘. ‘Delicacy’ starts off right off with an instrumental song called “Ozon (Remake).” This song was a track off Humming Urban Stereo’s 2007 album ‘Baby Love‘, and there are three other remakes like it on this album. “Hello Stranger” was featured in Mint Paper Project‘s ‘고양이 이야기‘. It’s an adorable song ... Read More »

Davichi don’t seem to hate each other and people just can’t stand it

Dude in the back is me reading these shitty netizen comments.

If you didn’t know, Davichi have a terrible relationship with one another and hate each other because Kang Min Kyung constantly bullies duo partner Lee Haeri. How do we know this? Because people who selectively read into their relationship based on their reality shows, talk show appearances, and their SNS accounts just KNOW. I’m not gonna post up every article, ...

Park Myung Soo goes upside Seolhyun’s head, but it’s okay cause oppa didn’t mean it

SeolhyunWillMurderYou

Indie Focus: Hanumpa rocks intensely and elegantly on ‘Tinnitus’

HanumpaTinnitus

Talk about an end of the year treat. Hanumpa‘s third album, ‘Tinnitus‘, is yet another addition to the list of remarkable rock releases this year. Not that I’m surprised; Hanumpa has been one of the more exciting acts in the Korean rock scene these past few years. While their second album failed to leave much of an impression on me, ...

ClaraProfile

The ongoing lawsuit/contract drama between Clara and Polaris Entertainment recently took another step forward after Clara rebutted Polaris claims that she was basically making the whole sexual harassment angle up.

SONETAKTeamIntro

A group of I-SONEs have joined forces in a campaign to doxx all of SNSD‘s haters and the harassers of SONEs.

Jonghyun’s “Crazy” builds to glory with Iron, but MV features like 500 SME ads

JonghyunCrazy

SHINee‘s Jonghyun made his solo debut with the mini-album ‘BASE‘, and expectations were high since he had his hand in the lyrics, composition, and (obviously) performing. The lead single from the album is “Crazy“, and it features rapper Iron … and like 5000 advertisements. I’m not quite as sold on him going to the ‘Adam Levine falsetto’ well so often, ... Read More »

Hello Venus use butts in ‘Wiggle Wiggle’ to distract us from whatever ‘Sticky Sticky’ was

HelloVenusWiggleWiggle

Let’s just get this out the way: “Sticky Sticky” was a disaster. It was lame. It’s basically the musical equivalent of a chocolate teapot — sweet to look at, but absolutely fucking useless. After Hello Venus‘s golden era between 2012 and 2013, you would think that their company, Fantagio, would try to build upon the brand they had forged and ... Read More »
