Videos of the Day: EXO's "Wolf" MVs And Comeback Stage

EXO released their mv for their much anticipated new song, " Wolf " this morning and, even though it seems that so many people dislike it, I think I'm going to have to (as a reader called it) "pull an Erika".  "Pulling an Erika" is apparently what happens when I talk shit about the teasers to a new song, mv or album leading up to it's release, and then backpedal and say that I like it afterwards. :Deep sigh: This happens so often.  When will I learn?

Taeyang, G-Dragon and 2NE1 At A VIP Chrome Hearts Party 130529

On May 29, GD and YB , along with their good friends 2NE1 , showed up to the opening of the new Chrome Hearts  in Shinsegae department store in Seoul today.  This was a VIP only event, so only the coolest of the cool were in attendance. This post is image heavy.

EXO's 2nd Teaser For "Wolf" Is Hilarious

On May 28 SMent dropped EXO 's newest teaser for their not yet released new single, " Wolf " .  I watched it last night and I was thinking I'd be able to be nice and just mention the facts but I really can't.  I have to admit it.  I think this is so.... damned... FUNNY and you know you do too.

UPDATED: Pics and Fancams From SHINee's Debut 5th Anniversary Special Party

All the festivities for SHINee's 5th Anniversary have now concluded but I'm still thinking about how many smiles they've brought into my life.  The boys of SHINee were probably thinking the same thing about Shawols yesterday, during their 5th Anniversary Special Party , which was held on Saturday May 25th at Hwajung Gymnasium . Minho's secla to commemorate the day.

My SHINee 5th Anniversary Appreciation Post

It's SHINee's 5th Anniversary today!  Can you imagine?  This fabulous group of boys have been SHINee for 5 whole years and still going strong.  This boggles my mind because people are always talking about the 5 year curse in Kpop, but  SHINee just keeps getting better and better.  Instead of succumbing to infighting or any of the other woes that other Kpop groups have broken up over, these boys seem to just get stronger.

SHINee is Finally 5 Again On M! Countdown: Welcome Back Jonghyun!

Jonghyun is back!  Yes that's right, my Shawol friends, SHINee is finally 5 again.  Earlier this morning the boys appeared on  M! Countdown for their first " Why So Serious? " goodbye stage.  There's been lots of fangirling and fanboying (is that fanperson-ing?) going on all over the world and, in fact, we even managed to trend  a Korean phrase on Twitter for over an hour.  How fun is that?  Read on for a ton of screencaps and some pics & video:

UPDATED: SHINee's Jonghyun Will Finally Be Back Today On M! Countdown!

Let the partying begin, because SHINee 's Jonghyun is finally back, and is making his " Why So Serious? " debut on M! Countdown .  He's only been gone for 2 months but it feels like forever, doesn't it?  Shawols everywhere are almost peeing their pants in excitement (including me).  It's pretty sad that he'll be back just when they are doing their goodbye stages on all the shows.  Sigghhh.  Want to see something awesome though?  Look at this business:

Kpop Flashback: SHINee's "Replay" Through the Years

The other day I wrote a post about how SHINee performed " Replay ", sans Jonghyun , on KBS 's 700th Episode specia l and, well... sucked.  I thought that if we watched other performances of "Replay", it would cleanse our brains of that sad spectacle and help us move on to bigger and better things, namely Jonghyun's return and their upcoming Japanese release .

2NE1's CL Is Going Solo For A Bit, What Do You Think?

The big YG Entertainment reveal has been made and the huge surprise seems to be that CL is coming out with a solo album.  Cue celebratory music for CL and a game show buzzer sound for 2NE1 .  I'm shocked, because as some of you might remember, CL was talking about this in February and mentioned that she would be coming out with her solo album after 2NE1 was done with their own promotions.   As you can tell, we've been trolled but whatever... This is just as exciting.  Read on for more info.

UPDATED: G-Dragon In Beijing For His One of a Kind World Tour 130503

I've been slacking lately.  I say I'm all about blogging about G-Dragon AND SHINee but I've mostly been blogging about SHINee lately.  Shame on me, right?  This is partly because GD has been doing his concert thing, which YG Entertainment has been blocking fancams of left and right.  That sucks, dudes. Besides releasing his " MichiGO " mv , GD has mostly been seen posting tons of stuff on Twitter and Instagram and that's about it.  What really inspires me about GD is his fashion , but lately I haven't been as inspired (imho Thom Browne suits are cute as hell on him but come on).  This, however, shouldn't stop me from posting about all some of the random stuff he does, since I'm supposed to be blogging about GD .  Jeezzz...  So without further ado: UPDATED: with the full press con. G-Dragon at his One of a Kind concert press con in Beijing
