Stuck with Real Life

I realized that it’s been such a long time ever since I’ve written anything remotely about my hobbies, my JPop fixation, fashion and all the other random shite usually associated with this blog. Not that I don’t care really, but truth is–since January of this year, I’ve been running my ass around trying to fix…

Santa called, he wants his tinsels back

Japanese idols really have it bad when it comes to costume choices. I mean, I bemoaned before the styling and costuming for my favorite group, Arashi and wow, there is actually another group that tops them when it comes to blindness-inducing/gag-reflex styling. Presenting: Please meet Dream Morning Musume, one of Japan’s numerous idol groups with…

My favorite girls featured on my favorite mag…

I wish I could say that this is it, since it features two of my girl crushes, Amuro Namie and Anna Tsuchiya. But Scawaii, while amusing and contains a lot of really nice-looking clothes isn’t exactly my fashion bible. I am not much into gyaru fashion. I just don’t think that I can pull off…

2NE1 to hit US iTunes charts?

Wowza! To think the girls have staged their comeback just recently. Based from recent reports from Popseoul (the go-to place for all things K-Pop!), my bad-ass girls were already rocking the US and Canada iTunes Charts. In fact, they ranked #2 in the US charts, the highest from any Korean act. (See ranking here) In…

Can’t Nobody stop 2NE1

Here’s 2NE1’s third video to complete their comeback: As expected, the girls are freaking awesome: CL looks fierce; Dara looks cool while Bom is just so gorgeous–but the best transformation has to be the baby of the group, Minzy. When 2NE1 started out about a year ago, Minzy was the most child-like. She looked boyish…

Clap your hands for 2NE1!

As far as I am concerned, only one Korean girl band is worth the adulation: I don’t like dem girl banders with the predilection for pink, for those who go the Lolita route, for those who make pa-cute. I don’t like girl banders who changes image as often as the tides change. I want my…

2NE1 says, “Follow Me”

Uber-cool Korean girl group 2NE1 returns with “Follow Me”, their latest single released today, 11 March. So glad you’re back 2NE1, after all, no one can imitate your refreshing techno-beats. CL also figures prominently in the video minus her iconic sunnies.

Jung Hyongwa on “We Got Married” – to like or not to like

…that is the question. I feel like such a BAD and UNSUPPORTIVE fan. A good fan supports her “idol” on his undertakings even if some are questionable, or unlikeable. Period. So why am I so freaking torn about this undertaking? Jung Hyongwa, my Shinwoo oppa is now on “We Got Married” (the Korean reality show…

Dara gets spoofed by own brother!

I don’t know if you’ve heard of the boygroup, MBLAQ, which is from Rain’s management company. One of the boys from MBLAQ is Park Sanghyun or “Thunder”, the kid brother of 2NE1 ingenue (San) Dara Park. See this REALLY FUNNY spoof of her older sister’s CF for Cass Beer with Lee Minhoo For your reference,…

My 2NE1 girls are back!

Had to give it to my cool girls to remain as cool as ever, in spite the long break from the limelight. (2NE1 Detractors: should you say it’s just an image, I don’t care, ok?) I love 2NE1–and with MUCH RESPECT and MUCH LOVE to other Korean girl groups, in my opinion 2NE1 is one…
