I've been doing a lot of Video of the Day posts on this blog recently, but that's because a lot of really good videos came out in the past month or two. Case in point is this EXO mv for their newest song, " Growl ". I can't even with this mv and song, and I mean that in the best possible way.
Those EXO boys are winding down their "Wolf" promotions and are getting ready to release another single. This new single is aptly titled "Growl " and will be released on the repackaged version of their " XOXO(Kiss&Hug) " album. EXO fans get your money straight because this one is going to be a doozy!
I know a week or two has passed since B.A.P's "Hurricane" mv and INFINITE's "Destiny" mv were released, but I have been wanting to talk about both of these videos for the longest time. Normally I'd have moved on by now but B.A.P and INFINITE are my boys! They're farther down on my bias list but they're still up there, ya know. I like them a lot, so this post had to happen in some way, shape or form.
So apparently this blog has received one of those blogger-to-blogger awards. This one is called the Liebster Award and it's from a blog I just happened to stumble upon called My Kpop Obsession . Aww... :sniffle: I'd like to thank my mom, my cat... Lol nah. But seriously, let me tell you a little bit more about it.
Hey guys! Sorry I've been away so much lately, but I've been working my butt off then being too tired when I get home. I'm so behind on my posts that it's not even funny, but I had to jump f(x) ahead in line because they are just too cute and fun to pass up. I talked about f(x)'s first teasers for their upcoming " Pink Tape " album a few days ago, and now SMent has gone and released even more goodies for us to squee over.
Ok I knew that G-Dragon 's editorial for Vogue Korea's 17th Anniversary would be amazing but these kind of exceeded my expectations. I am in awe of the depth and clarity of Hong Jang Hyun 's photographs and of the stylist's vision. The makeup artists did a great job too. I'm not saying I like them more than I like GD's 2009 Vogue Korea editorial but they come pretty close, especially the first photos, which I'm calling "G-Dragon in high fashion grunge Rivendell" (where the elves lived in Lord of the Rings ? No? Alright, I'll admit I'm kind of a nerd). Scroll down for scans of all 32 images and the full interview translation. You're welcome!
If you're an f(x) fan like me, you've been wondering if they were ever going to be let them out of the SM dungeon again. The answer is "Yes!" and "Finally!!" I've got all kinds of info about their imminent comeback, so let's get started.
Earlier this morning, while many of you were still sleeping, SHINee were busy being fabulous at the MNET 20's Choice Awards . They managed to wow us sartorially and perform the crap out of " Why So Serious ?" and " Beautiful ". They also won the award they were up for, which was the 20's Performance Award (we knew that would happen... I mean, come on now). I've got some gorgeous HQ pics, fancams and HD video for you below, so read on.
Even more previews of Vogue Korea's 17th anniversary issue have been released today, and this time it's a BTS video featuring G-Dragon and Soo Joo called " Black Twins ". Watch below and then scroll down for some boho-grunge-this-is-my-rock-n-roll-life screencaps.
Today was SHINee Taemin's 21st birthday in Korea (he's still 20 in international age), which means he's fully a man now. Yes, that means it's perfectly okay to ogle him now, you nasty pervs you! Seriously though, this is a post in appreciation of Taemin and how he's grown over the years. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Another preview of G-Dragon 's editorial for Vogue Korea's 17th Anniversary issue was leaked today and, while I knew it was going to be good, I didn't know they were aiming for spectacular. I should have known after this! Behold... shirtless bohemian rocker god GD:
Lovers of G-Dragon 's fashion rejoice, because the man himself will be featured on the cover of Vogue Korea's 17th Anniversary issue . You'll need to get your $$ ready once again, since there will be not one, not two, but THREE different covers for this hotly anticipated Vogue issue.
It's that time of year again. Right now all the music shows are preoccupied with their half yearly specials, in which they get all the popular groups to do some sort of special stage. These performances can be anywhere from really good to weird to just plain boring, but SHINee 's " Dream Girl " special stage is definitely one of the good ones. Check it out:
Let's be honest here... I rarely watch Kpop music videos that aren't a product of one of my favorite groups, and that's because I'm pretty biased. I don't tend to think that other groups will have a great video with an equally great song, and I'm often right (in my opinion, anyway). So you can imagine my surprise when I found these mv gems. Not only do these videos incorporate imagery that wows me, they're also songs that I'd download and listen to over and over. Oh, and by the way, there's only one actual Kpop mv included in this list. Go figure.
If you used Google Reader in the past, then you are well aware that it was shut down by the powers that be on July 1st. I know a lot of people were mad about this development, so you the following could very well have been you when it was first announced:
JYJ's Kim Junsu or, as you might know him, XIAH has released a new special preview mv called " 11am ". This song is from his upcoming album, "Incredible" and it is incredible, that's for sure. Be sure to watch this in HD with the subtitles on for optimal enjoyment.
SHINee has once again proven that they are made of AWESOME. On July 1st those shining boys were doing their usual at the Hong Kong Dome Festival (which consists of performing in the hot sun in at least 3 layers of clothes each), when a super heavy rain storm started... and they just kept going... while looking like they were having fun. Nope, I'm not exaggerating. Check it out:
Last week, Big Bang's Taeyang headed on over to Paris to take in a few shows at Men's SS 2014 Fashion Week . This was kind of a surprise, seeing as this is usually G-Dragon 's deal, but good for him! It was nice to see another Big Bang member in the spotlight. Since I've made no secret of my dislike of Youngbae 's style in the past year (with his over usage of bandanna print and his love of too-big-for-his-frame clothing), it's pretty obvious why I was a little worried. Would he wear something embarrassing like an all over scarf print jump suit, a lá CL 's " Baddest Female " mv ? Would he wear something even worse? Welllll... yes and no.
