Fashion DON'T: Big Bang T.O.P's Prada Coat

Alright T.O.P, I'm all for you wearing funky patterns and crazy colors.  I get it... you want to be fabulous and there's nothing wrong with that.  I've seen you in some Prada coats recently and, even though some people have been talking crap, I've had your back.  I thought you looked really good.  However, let's get something straight: This is where I draw the line-

Have a Very Merry Kpop Christmas!

I know that some of my readers, and many Kpop fans in general, don't celebrate Christmas.  For the ones that do, I wanted to wish everyone a happy and fun Christmas from Oddness/Weirdness!  As they'd say in Korea, eat well and stay warm and dry and be safe!  For the ones that don't, I know I'm a bit late but Happy belated Hannukah, Happy Kwanzaa if you celebrate that and Happy Holidays in general.

Here are some Kpop Christmas videos for your enjoyment:

Seungri's Tweets Continue To Amuse and Amaze

Seungri has been a busy man this year, what with all that touring the world business and the feeling up on random Japanese starlets' goodies business, amongst other things.  But still, one of the absolute best things he's done this year continues to be his (super funny) usage of his Twitter account.

SHINee Strikes a Pose For SWITCH Magazine Vol. 31

SHINee has kind of taken over the pages of contemporary Japanese magazines, but who could blame them?  

I love the styling for this spread in SWITCH magazine Vol. 31., especially Minho's outfit.  I'd totally wear that.  Actually I just realized that Jonghyun looks like a school teacher.  Ah well... enjoy!

Watch SHINee's 'Killer SHINee' VCR From The Japan Arena Tour DVD

SHINee released their first Japan Arena Tour DVD on December 3rd with much fanfare and brouhaha as usual, and I'm dying to see it.  I realized that one of the main things I really wanted to see was the VCR from the DVD.  I mean, we've seen them be silly and we've seen them be otherworldly but we've never seen them like this.  Behold 'Killer SHINee':

Watch The Last Of JongKey And Some Girls In World Date With SHINee Episode 3

Here's the last episode of "World Date With SHINee", English subbed for your viewing pleasure.  We all knew it had to end someday, but it's been cute (and a bit awkward) while it lasted.

FTISLAND Werq It Out In Wiglets For L'Officiel Hommes November Issue

Ahh fashion... how I have missed thee.  I seriously have missed blogging about fashion, even though I've kind of gone away from that in the past month or more.  I will be getting back into the swing of things in January, which is when I'll have more time to focus on blogging.

I've got some airport style and Fashion Finds posts in the works, which I haven't done in awhile.  I've also got to do an Idol Style post... it's been a long time since I did one of those .

But I digress.  To get me back into the swing of things here's those cuties from FTISLAND, who were featured in the November 2012 issue of L'Officiel Hommes.  They want you to know that they are so not afraid to do the dapper '70s gentleman thing while wearing a wiglet or two.  WERQ it, bishes!

Strictly for the Visuals: Oddness/Weirdness Does Top 10 Kpop Videos of 2012

We're back with another Top 10, and by "we" I mean Stormy and myself.  This time we're talking about the top 10 videos of 2012 and as mentioned in the title, it's strictly for the visuals.  We won't be bringing you our thoughts on the bestest Kpop songs of the year, as we already did that, or even the best songs/videos.  This post is just about the videos released in 2012 that wowed us visually.

Yes, some of the songs on this list are the same as on our Top 10 songs list but that's because it just so happens that, in our opinions, both the song and the mv are perfection.

Don't agree with us?  No problem!  Scroll on down to the comments section and let your fingers fly.

The Melon Music Awards 2012 Performances: The Best and The Meh

The 2012 Melon Music Awards happened earlier this morning for me, last night for many of you.  I don't know about you, but I'm thinking it was a damned sight better than the MAMA's.

I'm bringing you my thoughts on the best performances and the not-so-good... feel free to agree or disagree with me in the comments like you did last time, but do remember that we all have different opinions.

SHINee's Jonghyun and Key Are Flirty and Coy For Jille Magazine + Interview (Eng Trans)

For awhile there you might have thought that JongKey was no more but they've recently been all over each other again.  I've seen some handsy fancams from the last SHINee World II concert and they've been super flirty and touch-y in World Date With SHINee.  Well now they're taking it even further in the January 2013 issue of Jille magazine.

SHINee Releases "The World Where You Exist" + "1000 Years" Album Pics

SHINee's single "1000 Years, Always By Your Side" has officially been released, and with it comes the release of the B-side, "The World Where You Exist".

SHINee has been on a roll this year.  They've been performing all over the world and filming commercials and mvs, and releasing songs left and right.  I guess they want to make sure you don't forget about them as 2013 approaches.  SME and EMI Japan have done a good job with that by ensuring they release quality products, and this one is no different.   I certainly won't be forgetting about them any time soon.

Take a listen to "The World Where You Exist":

G-Dragon Does an Interview for XXL Magazine

When Big Bang was on the East Coast of the U.S. for their Alive Tour concerts, G-Dragon sat down with XXL, a very popular urban culture/rap magazine.

Being written up in XXL mag is a big deal for any rapper, much less a Kpop artist.  You can imagine how big of a deal it would be for GD, even if said artist is one of the most popular in the Kpop genre.  When you do a search for Kpop on XXL's site, 4 articles come up and this is the only one that's an actual interview.  Yeah... I'm excited.

It's such a great article.  There are definitely some really interesting things that are revealed and it seems like GD was very honest throughout, and quite a bit more open than he would be for a Korean magazine.

Read on and then leave me a comment.  I'm curious to know what you think.

Kpop WTF: HyunA, Goo Hara And Hyorin Twerk It For Chum Churum Soju

If you haven't taken a gander at Sistar's Hyorin, Kara's Goo Hara and 4minute's HyunA poppin' and twerkin' it in the 19+ commercials for soju brand Chum Churum, then you need to because it is not to be missed.

Oddness/Weirdness Does Top 10 Songs of 2012

It is currently the time of year when every kind of site, magazine, radio station, etc., starts making their "Top Whatever of 2012" lists and I wanted to jump in on that bandwagon with my First Annual Top 10 Songs of the Year list.  Of course I have to do it my way, and that entails me asking my friends for their help.

My friends and I have been talking about Kpop music and music videos all year, so they're as qualified as I am to make judgements and pronouncements.  In other words, not qualified at all, but hey, that hasn't stopped us yet!

Joining me will be MyMusicRadar! aka Stormy to her friends.  Like me, Stormy also runs a Kpop blog and Tumblr and has written for this site before; I couldn't have done this post without her.  Also joining us (for contrast) is Dasiey28, an avid Kpop enthusiast and Kdrama watcher extraordinaire.  If you ever need to find any Kpop mv or need to know where to watch a Kdrama, ask and she shall find.  She is the Kpop-finding master.  Oh and btw, I'm Erika.  :)

Vote for your Song of the Year at the end of this post;  if you don't like our choices you can write your song in.  I'll be posting the results on December 21st.  Make sure to leave me a comment with your feels/thoughts.  Got a different opinion?  Let me know!

Video of the Day: Block B's Zico Performs "Battle Royal" at the DIMA Student Music Festival

I rarely ever post something at the crack of dawn, but that's what I'm doing right now because my feels are exploding all over the place.

I happened to come upon one of these fancams a few minutes ago and had to upload it, since it contains footage of Block B's Zico performing his song "Battle Royal" onstage at the DIMA Student Music Festival on 121206.  Then I found another that included the beginning of his performance, so I'm posting both.

UPDATED: They Cannot Keep Us Away From Our SHINee: Watch "1000 Years, Always By Your Side" Complete Version

Well, well, well... EMI Japan released the completed version of SHINee's "1000 Years" but made it unavailable in who knows how many countries, including the U.S.  Boy was I pissed when I saw that.  So in other words, they tried to keep tons of Shawols away from their SHINee and we all know what happens when someone tries to do that.

I call bullshit on EMI Japan and then laugh mockingly because an awesome fan reuploaded that mv fast as hell.  Watch it below!

Stop The Presses! G-Dragon Went & Got Himself Some New Hair

Yes you read that right.  Big Bang's G-Dragon has gone and gotten himself a new hairstyle and cut.  You know I, along with many other VIPs, were dying to know what he would do next.  Take a look at G-Dragon at Gimpo airport, leaving Korea on the way to Hong Kong:

When Big Bang was in Los Angeles in early November for their Alive concert tour stops, they ended up being guests on a show called "Danny From L.A.", which is an Mnet America weekly original show that talks about Asian pop culture and entertainment.  Watch Big Bang in all their lo-fi splendor as they relax, laugh and talk in a mixture of English and Korean about all kinds of topics, especially their delicious looking In 'n Out burgers.

The 2012 MAMAs: Performances That Killed It & The Ones That Failed

As I'm sure all you Kpop lovers were aware, the 2012 Mnet Asian Music Awards, or MAMAs, finally happened earlier this morning (or last night depending on where you live),

Check out the performances I thought were genius PLUS the ones that were full of fail below, and then make sure to let me know which were the ones you loved and hated in the comments.

Edited to add:  After reading the comments I received, I felt compelled to add that I'm not just a YG and SM stan.  I did like other performances, like Block B's and Gain's, I'm just waiting to make another post when I find more HD videos.

Today's Video of the Day is by none other than my faves, SHINee, who bring you their pv for "1000 Years, Always By Your Side".

I have to take a pause here because I have so many feels (and too many screencaps, aigoo!) to express about this incredible video.  Take a look:

Big Bang's New Gmarket Ads: Photos, BTS + More

Big Bang has been spokespeople for Gmarket (a hugely popular South Korean online auction and shopping site) for years now, and this year has been no exception.

This time Gmarket released their ads and commercials for the current round of promotions for their site and they are chock full of Big Bang.  Gmarket is obviously not a dumb company, because I too would shop for stuff if my boys promoted it.

SHINee is Trendy in Black For The December Issue of Hanako Magazine

The SHINee boys continue to promote in Japan with the December issue of Hanako magazine and   I'm not always the biggest fan of Japanese magazine editorials but I quite like this one.  What do you guys think?

Ok, woah...

I've been looking for this jacket ever since G-Dragon's mv for "Crayon" came out and I finally found it all out of the blue.

Editorials Past: f(x)'s Sulli for Singles Magazine October 2011

I haven't done one of these in awhile, but that's because I haven't come across any older kpop fashion editorials that really struck my fancy in awhile.  Today, though, I happened to see this one and was immediately charmed.

This Singles magazine editorial features f(x)'s Sulli and it was taken in October of 2011, and even though it was taken a year ago, the fashion is still timely and stylish.  I happen to think Sulli looks gorgeous here.  I hope you enjoy it, because I certainly did.

If you did, that's perfectly ok.  We're allowed to do that at least one time a year.  If you didn't then you have way more willpower than I do.

On this Thanksgiving day, I'm thankful that I have a place to live and nice clothes to wear and for family and all that good stuff.  What are you thankful for?

Have a great one and hope you'll come back to visit soon.  :)

UPDATED- Kpop WTF: Seungri's Twitter Shenanigans

Big Bang's Seungri joined the Twitter-verse early this past Monday morning and if you were paying attention to the Kpop world anytime in the last few days, you probably heard about it.

Super Junior Leeteuk's Pre-Military Haircut, Fashionisto Style

Geek Magazine has finally published their pics and BTS video of Super Junior's Leeteuk getting his pre-military haircut.  I like how they went the fashion forward route, which involved dressing Leeteuk up in a myriad of outfits and giving him  haircuts until he was down to a buzz cut.

Video of the Day: B1A4's "Tried to Walk"

Today I'm taking a break from Big Bang (as I wait for more fancams to upload) to talk about B1A4's mv for their new song, "Tried to Walk".  This song is from their recently released 3rd mini album, entitled "In the Wind", and it is a significant departure from their previous releases.

It's been a whole 4 days since I've posted anything, which is kind of crazy.  It's just been that kind of week, what with me going to the November 9th Big Bang Alive concert in Newark, NJ and all.

Let me just get this out of the way first:  It was INCREDIBLE!!  I had SO much fun!  I got to see them all close up and almost personal and stuff... it was fabulous. Now on with the goodies!

Kpop WTF: Idol Managers Back In the Spotlight For Hitting Fans

As you can see, I finally got my cable service back a week after Hurricane Sandy.  Talk about boring!  But like I said in my last post, I'm totally not complaining because it could have been WAY worse.  I'm just glad to be warm and dry with a house to come home to, and now even more glad that I can blog again and catch up with Kpop news.

Of course one of the first things to catch my eye is a tweet about an EXO manager hitting a fan.  Sighhh....  Wtf??

Kpop WTF: EXO managers hits fans.



Oddness/Weirdness Blog Will Be Back Soon

I haven't posted in a few days, but there's a reason for that. 

As you probably already know, Hurricane Sandy blew through the Northeast U.S. on Sunday night and caused a ton of damage.  Many people lost their homes or found them half filled with water, the Atlantic City coastline is demolished, a tanker washed up on the streets of Staten Island. Those are the sorts of things that happened that day.

Thankfully all that happened to me is that I lost my cable signal, which means I just can't watch tv or sign onto my computer or blog, but that is an extremely small price to pay.

I'll be back to blogging as soon as possible; hopefully you guys will still be interested in this silly little Kpop blog.

Thanks for reading!


SHINee's Key Drags Minho and Some of f(x) To A Shoe Show At Seoul Fashion Week

Seoul Fashion Week is over now but it was tons of fun while it lasted.  Unfortunately, as mentioned here, I was unable to blog yesterday but we're back in business today. 

I did get to take a look at all kinds of great fashion shows this past week.  I also got to see SHINee's Key wield his sartorial magic quite a few times, which I love.  The last Key sighting was on October 25th, when he, Minho and some members of f(x) attended the Suecomma Bonnie shoe show.

We Interrupt This Blog To Talk About Hurricane Sandy

Alright guys so I've been busy getting ready for Hurricane Sandy, so I did not get to do any blogging yesterday.  Hopefully the storm won't be as big as predicted and I'm hoping that we don't lose power anytime this week.  If we do, I'll be back as soon as I can with more posts and I'll definitely be around on Twitter if you want to come say hi.

To all my blog readers (and everyone else) in the path of Hurricane Sandy: Stay safe and dry!

SHINee's Key Goes to pushBUTTON at Seoul Fashion Week 121024

I took a few days off from blogging but I've been keeping up with all the fashionable happenings at Seoul Fashion Week, so I found some more SHINee goodies for you to peruse.

Key seems to be everywhere this Spring/Summer '13 Fashion Week and he even dragged Minho and some members of f(x) along with him for one of the shows.  First up, though, is Key all alone at the pushBUTTON show on October 24.

SHINee's Key and Jonghyun, MBLAQ & More At Seoul Fashion Week 121022

It's Fashion Week in Seoul right now, which means all kinds of actors, actresses and Kpop stars will be out and about to take in the Spring/Summer 2013 sights.  SHINee's Jonghyun and Key, MBLAQ's Mir and Thunder, members of Nu'est, and more kicked it off by attending designer Sung Hye Myung's fashion show on Monday.  MBLAQ's Thunder also modeled in said fashion show, showcasing his tall good looks as Mir looked on from the audience.

I really knew I had to write about this when I saw what Key was wearing, especially since I haven't done a SHINee fashion post in awhile.  Take a look below at all these beautiful boys as they walk the red carpet, model or enjoy their cushy front row seats.

Here's A Preview of G-Dragon x Ambush for GQ Korea

G-Dragon will be featured in the November 2012 issue of GQ Korea, where he'll be rocking some Ambush pieces.  If you remember correctly, GD collaborated with Ambush jewelry for their "Screw It" line.  He also ended up wearing quite a few Ambush pieces in the "Crayon" mv.  In the article GD mentioned that he would like to start his own fashion brand in the future, which I think would be a logical endeavor for him.

Take a look at the pics after the link and be sure to check back soon for the article with English subs.

G-Dragon Performs "Crayon" & More on the Streets of Seoul for Inkigayo 121021

I'm going to go on record as saying this was G-Dragon's best Inkigayo stage so far.  Watch GD's "Crayon" goodbye stage, which was done on the streets of HongDae in Seoul and marvel at how much money YG and SBS is willing to spend on one performance.
