The Best of the Worst: Sept. 26

Welcome, back, everyone! Can you believe it's already been a week? I can.

Moving on.

This week, we bring you The Best of the Worst: Who's Doing Who Edition.

For couple one, we have T-ara's Soyeon and Oh Jong Hyuk, who were confirmed to have been dating for the past three years. Coincidentally, the news came out the same day as T-ara's new teaser vid.

Funny how that worked out

Couple two involves the significant age gap that's all the rage in kpop these days. Twenty-year-old Sulli was seen holding hands with 33-year-old Choiza of Dynamic Duo.

And actor/model Kim Woo Bin was revealed to be in a relationship with model Yoo Ji Ahn.

In other baby-making news, Sunye shows off her baby bump at a wedding.

Watch out, Soyeon. This could be you next.

The Best of the Worst: Sept. 19

Hello, friends! This week's edition of The Best of the Worst is heaping with crap. You can always tell when there's a lull in good kpop comebacks. You get news like this:

Which Hollywood star looks like Noh Hong Chul?

Spoiler: No one

I finally gave in: SHINee "Replay (Noona Is So Pretty)"

It's been awhile since I made my last "I finally gave in" post, and by awhile, I mean almost a year. What can I say? I've been busy.

For those of you who don't know what the "I finally gave in" feature is about or for those of you who have forgotten since it's been so long, it's where I discuss a song it took me awhile to like. Basically, it's me yakking about something everyone else has long since forgotten, while I act like I'm the first person to ever realize its merits.

I'm insufferable, really. Just like Key's eyebrows.

Friday the 13th is, in fact, a day of evil

A scary thing happened today. Coming home from work tonight, I was greeted by Soyeon Friend who was about 2 sheets to the wind. After the usual greetings and five pieces of Papa John's hate-filled pizza, Soyeon Friend turned to me and said:

"This might make me a bad person, but I could really go for 'I Got A Boy.'"

The Best of the Worst: Sept. 12

    Another week, another steaming pile of kpop non-news. This week, we've got a couple pretty men, a nice bitch face, and a celeb taking the subway. As you can tell, it was a thrilling seven days, full of important news.

    Guess who. Don't care? Neither do I.

    The Best of the Worst: Sept. 5

    An incomprehensible thing happened this week. Remember Piggy Dolls? They were that group that debuted awhile back with the gimmick of being a lot bigger than other kpop girl groups.

    Oh hey, they're a lot bigger than other kpop girl groups.

    Then they came back later, much lighter.

    Well, guess what, everyone: They're back again!

    That's cool. Wait ... something's different about you, Piggy Dolls ...

    Oh yeah, and they're coming back as three completely different, skinny girls.

    If we look at this mathematically:

    Gimmick group - gimmick - all original members = A DIFFERENT FUCKING GROUP

    I Spy: A Bunch of Shit That Doesn't Make Sense 5

    I checked out Ladies' Code's "Pretty Pretty." It's been awhile since a kpop video left me thinking "What the fuck did I just watch?" (well, at least since I watched their last video). What does this mean?

    It's time to play "I Spy: A Bunch of Shit That Doesn't Make Sense."

     Zomg, FINALLY!

    UPDATED: The thrilling conclusion to the new favorite song search

    The good news is I finally got "NoNoNo" out of my head. The bad news is I didn't find "That Song" to become my new favorite. If anything, I regressed a little, spending most of my shift at work this evening with T-ara N4's "Countryside Life" in my head. :[

    I did find a musical friend in Kara's "Damaged Lady," which was the closest I got to new favorite song. Soyeon Friend and I dabbled in the dark arts* a little, too, listening to YUI a bit this weekend. But I guess I'll just have to keep looking for "That Song."

    I'm not really sure how to end this post, so just enjoy this photo of Sulli with a Jiyoung pillow.

    What Sulli really means to say is she loves you.

    * Read: Listened to jpop

    UPDATE: Less than an hour after I posted this, I checked out Ladies' Code's "Pretty Pretty," which then turned into an hour-and-a-half-straight Ladies' Code listen fest. If you know Ladies' Code, they only have like four songs, so it was a particularly shameful time. You can call me a liberal flip-flopper, call me a liar or just call me crazy, but I think I found my new favorite song. Really, I'm probably these three things anyway.
