The Best of the Worst: March 28

This week, Bad Boy Onew returned in glorious fashion

Smoking while dating an older (hotter) woman? 
Watch out: By next week, he's probably going to be robbing people.

Sooyoung is an artist dammit

During a recent docu about their exciting Japanese activities, SNSD was asked whether the group should be considered idols or artists. So Skeletor piped up and said she wants to be called an artist.

Well, duh. Everyone would rather be called an artist over just an idol. Sadly, though, I don't see that happening for Sooyoung and the other GGs anytime soon.

I Spy: A Bunch of Shit That Doesn't Make Sense 4

Welcome back, my friends, to the game that never ends — I Spy: A Bunch of Shit That Doesn't Make Sense. As promised earlier this week, this round explores GLAM's "Party (XXO)." To accompany its lyrics about being from Mars and bisexuality, this song has a music video full of random crap.

Challenge yourself to find the following hidden and not-so-hidden gems in the video. We'll start off easy.

Cheerz: Super Junior "Sorry Sorry"

About this time each year, I get nostalgic for Super Junior, probably because it was around spring that I got really into them originally. Here we are again. 

It's during these times that I like to pretend they don't annoy the shit out of me now. It's a pleasant temporary escape from reality.

What in the world is Yesung wearing? Boy, you used to be one of the hot ones.
Ugh. Looking at this picture is making me punchy. This is why, SuJu. It's things like this.
Oh and your music blows now.

The Best of the Worst: March 21

From beautiful Bullshit Bay, we bring you another installment of The Best of the Worst. This week, we've got a psychic idol with a vendetta, a clueless husband and a couple of bad motherfuckers.

This is one bitch you don't want to mess with.

Huh, GLAM is actually pretty awesome

I finally gave GLAM a chance today, first listening to their latest song, "In Front of the Mirror." They kind of blew me away. In the often unoriginal kpop industry, I'm so used to rookie* groups being by the numbers and forgettable, with mind-numbingly repetitive songs. GLAM stood out to me immediately, though.

It's not as though GLAM, which stands for Girls Be Ambitious (I think G-BAm would have been a more appropriate acronym but whatever.), strays far from today's kpop girl group mold. They don't. They're another four-member (down from five at debut) group that sings pretty mainstream stuff. They're pretty. They have a couple rappers.

Several subtle, but important, differences make the group stand out, though.

Cheerz: Son Dam Bi "Saturday Night"

The winter apparently took its toll on my Internet, transforming it into a big piece of mostly non-working shit. For that reason, I ask you to forgive the lateness of this Cheerz. And for that reason, this week's Cheerz reflects my mood, for like Dam Bi, my heart is also heavy on this Saturday night. Just sub in "working Internet" for whenever Dam Bi is talking about her lost love.

The Best of the Worst: March 14

For all you lovers of bullshit, we're back with another roundup of the most groan-inducing kpop stories. This week, we have Little Eunjung Lost, more shocking celeb secrets, and another terrible excuse for the books.

Little Psy, big pimpin'

Today, I made a terrible decision. I watched the Little Psy music video (Oh, you were unaware that was a thing? Well aren't you a lucky fuck.).

But seriously, that kid from "Gangnam Style" made a video. I feel ashamed to say I watched it out of sheer curiosity/hatred for myself. By the 1:15 mark, I desperately wanted to turn it off but told myself not to, so I could more accurately write this post. The sacrifices I make for you people ...

I feel like a bad person for even bringing attention to this.
That's what they want to happen.

This probably is the worst thing I've seen in kpop.

Cheerz: Secret "Madonna"

This week, Hyorin revealed that she thinks she has one of the top five bodies in kpop, a statement with which I agree. I'd probably throw in Uee, Bora, Hyosung and either Hyoyeon or Yuri, whichever of the two's bodies is looking better that day. 

In celebration of rockin' bodies, this week's pick is Secret's "Madonna," which features Hyosung at her hottest. Girl even makes grayish purple hair look good. Damn.

The Best of the Worst: March 7

This week was a little slow on the ridiculous side. Maybe it was the deluge of comebacks, but for whatever reason, the kpop news cycle had less shit than usual.

But fear not friends, even less bullshit still means a flood of bullshit in the kpop world. This week brought us an unnecessary 15 minutes of fame extension, a ridiculous American pop tie-in, and more crazy JYJ fans. Always crazy JYJ fans.

I'm hoping to work Jaejoong Oppa into every week's Best of the Worst.

It's time for an intervention

On a recent ep of "Star Life Secret," Lee Hong Ki confessed to spending more than $45,000 on nail art. Let's put aside the fact that's a shit ton of money to spend on something so trivial and makes Drake's $50,000 stripper shower seem more practical in comparison.

This just seems like a much better investment.
Think of all the happiness Drake brought those strippers.

Instead of heaping rich, creamy judgment on Lee Hong Ki, let's focus on the heart of the matter here: Hong Ki has a problem. It's called nail art, and it's an addiction.

T-ara style retrospective

T-ara released their new Japanese single, "Bunny Style," last week. I don't mind the song in moderation, though I can't speak for how the group's Japanese was. But like several other recent releases, the video was garbage.

The worst part was the matching "bunny" outfits that look like they came from the sexy Halloween section at some cheap costume shop. Just more fetish clothing making a mockery out of one of my fave groups.

There was a time when T-ara wore actual clothing that made me say "Day-yum, girl" or "But I want it!" Lately, though, things have veered toward the tacky.

Cheerz: 2PM "Hands Up"

To celebrate our boy Big Ears getting into Korea University Graduate School, we're going to symbolically toast Taecyeon with 2PM's "Hands Up."

Apparently, Big Ears was smart all along. Here I thought he was just another pretty face. My bad.

To atone for my sin of ignorance, I will watch a mini marathon of 2PM vids later. 
Sounds like a hot night ahead.
