UPDATED: SHINee Releases A Second "Everybody" Album Teaser, And This Time It's Onew

SHINee seems to be referencing the '80s in the teasers for their upcoming mini album, " Everybody ".  This time they've released Onew's image teasers, complete with fake eyelashes and a captains hat, and they are giving me some throwback feels.  Check them out!

UPDATED: SHINee To Make Another 2013 Comeback With "Everybody"

It's party time my Shawol friends, because SHINee will be making a comeback with their 5th mini album on October 14th!  This album is entitled " Everybody " and it will be their 3rd Korean comeback of the year.  You know what that means, right?   No more striped cardigans or khakis , that's what!  Yesssss! Taemin  TaeMAN's guyliner-ed beauty of a teaser pic is below for your edification and enjoyment.  Once you tear your eyes away from that, please do read on for a bit of fangirling:

Video of the Day: Block B's "Be The Light"

Last night Block B released their " Be The Light " audio only version and many fans were saddened by the lack of an mv.   Seven Seasons decided it would be fun to troll us hard by releasing the mv a few hours later, but I'm okay with that because we got this out of it...

Block B Is Back At Last With "Be The Light"!

My Block B feels are overflowing right now because they have FINALLY made their way out of the dungeon with a new song.  I'm fangirling and squee-ing so hard right now!  Take a listen to their preview track, " Be The Light ", below:

UPDATED: SHINee is Grown And Sexy For Arena Homme+'s October Issue

The boys  men of SHINee are set to cover the October issue of Korea's Arena Homme+ magazine.  They've been featured in many magazines over the years, but this time they're special enough to warrant 5 separate covers for each member.  How fabulous is that?  I'm crossing my fingers that this dark and sexy editorial is a foreshadowing of the concept for their rumored Korean comeback, because this One Direction-ish " Boys Meet U " nonsense has got to go. UPDATED:  With official HQ cover scans and all interviews except Key's. ( Key 's pic goes first because it's still his birthday in the U.S.  Happy Birthday Key!) The following are all the images and interviews that are available so far. 

[GUEST POST] [FAN ACCOUNT] KCON 2013 - The Experience

Hey guys, it's me Erika.  Thanks for sticking with me on my semi-vacay from blogging!  I promise I'll soon be back to posting almost daily (I'm still posting on the  Facebook  page so check me there!) but in the meantime, I've got this really great post by my friend Leaf of  My Kpop Obsession   for you to read.  It's a continuation of her KCON 2013 fan accounts , and this time, instead of talking about the M! Countdown concert, she's written about her experience walking around and chatting with fellow fans of all ages and nationalities.  I thought it was extremely good and I had a lot of fun reading it, so I figured you would too.  Enjoy! KCON 2013 - THE EXPERIENCE In which Leaf went to KCON in a silly hat and ridonkulous sunglasses, but still managed to nerd-out with 20,000 other kpop lovers despite looking like a frumpy old lady...

Seungri, G-Dragon And Taeyang Make My Day On SBS's Inkigayo 130915

All the cute, guys, all the cute!  That's all I could think today as I watched the videos and fancams from G-Dragon and Seungri 's (featuring special guest Taeyang ) Inkigayo appearance today.  GD has looked super happy recently, and I swear part of it has to do with the fact that he's been promoting alongside Seungri. RiRi sure does bring out GD's silly side, which is a good thing because he was starting to depress me a bit with all that "I look exhausted" business.  It's also quite nice to see him not try to look cool and chic once in awhile, so I was doubly sad to hear that today was Seungri's goodbye stage. Alright guys, so many videos and pics to look at!  Get started below:

So You Were Wondering What EXO's "Wolf" & "Growl" Drama Version MVs Are About? Pt. 1

It has come to my attention that people are confused as hell about EXO 's " Wolf " and " Growl " drama version MVs, and have been since they came out.  Well, it's your lucky day, because I'm here to explain the shit out of them for you, in the way I know best: I'm going to tell you a little story.  Fyi, this will be done in two parts, so bear with me.

G-Dragon Makes His First Coup D'etat Comeback Stage On Inkigayo

Hey there people!  I'm still around, I'm just taking a short break.  You know I'm all about the G to the D so I had to come back to post about G-Dragon's first Coup D'etat comeback stage on (of course) SBS's Inkigayo .  Watch his performances below:

Video of the Day: G-Dragon's "Crooked" + Lyrics

The second part to G-Dragon 's epic opus, " Coup D'etat ", has been let loose into the world tonight, and along with that came a new mv.  This one, called " Crooked ", is obviously the video that GD was filming all over London last month.  In it G-Dragon plays the epitome of that descriptive phrase "mad, bad and dangerous to know", and he plays it to the hilt.  Watch:

Video of the Day: G-Dragon's "Coup D'etat" + Lyrics And A Playlist

"People The revolution will not be televised The revolution is in your mind The revolution is here" G-Dragon  is back, and he's just released the mv for his revolutionary new song, " Coup D'etat ", as well as part 1 of the album.  Yes I said part 1.  We'll get into that later.  Have you seen the mv yet?  I had to watch it a few times just to get my thoughts together, so let's watch it again:

[GUEST POST] [FAN ACCOUNT] KCON 2013 - M! Countdown: What's Up LA? Concert Review - Part 2 & 3

Here's part 2 and 3 of Leaf 's  M! Countdown: What's Up L.A. concert fan account.   Check out part 1 here .  This fan account has been cross posted from Leaf's blog,  My Kpop Obsession .  Please be sure to take out with full credit. Internet, Let us continue... Teen Top 

[GUEST POST] [FAN ACCOUNT] KCON 2013 - M! Countdown: What's Up LA? Concert Review - Part 1

When KCON 2013 was announced, I was dead set on not going.  I'd read all sorts of bad stuff about KCON 2012 and thought, "What could possibly change in a year?"  Next thing you know it was announced that G-Dragon would be showing up, as well as people like EXO and f(x) .  While I wouldn't fly across the country just to see EXO, I was pretty disappointed that I wouldn't get to see GD perform by himself (as well as shocked that he'd be attending KCON at all.  I mean, what??).  I also heard it was a lot of fun this year so... bummer. Well my fellow non-KCON attendees, I've got the next best thing: A detailed fan account of the M! Countdown: What's Up L.A.? concert by the incomparable Leaf of My Kpop Obsession .  She describes herself as "gripped by Kpop", which I'm sure we can all relate to.  Leaf's blog is a stream of consciousness type of thing that you only want to go to if you have a couple of hours to spare, and by that I me
