Cheerz: T-ara "I Go Crazy Because of You"

I haven't shirked my responsibilities — just put them off for a while. But anyway, here we are with another Cheerz. This week's song was inspired by our just finishing "Coffee House." I've had Eunjung on the mind lately, and this song featured great Eunjung closeups.

Such as this one

The Best of the Worst: June 26

Ahh yes, welcome friends. Bring your cup of tea, pull up a chair and let us engage in deep, meaningful conversation about Korean media and popular culture.

The talk show everyone's been raving about

Oh wait, this is Best of the Worst, where there is no meaningful kpop. Instead, we get to talk about bad fans, real bad fans, and Exo fans. Sigh.

The Best of the Worst: June 19

Kpopdom has been blowing up the past 24 hours after Taeyeon and Baekhyun were confirmed to be dating. It's been both an entertaining and obnoxious past day with everybody flocking to their favorite social media to give their 2 cents (or $2 or $2,000 depending on the level of butthurt). The whole situation really underscores the ridiculousness of kpop dating in the modern age.

There were stories about Oreos:

A tweet that didn't go over particularly well:

And a reminder of why we don't go to Allkpop anymore:

Review: AOA "Short Hair"

Having been disappointed by AOA's past two releases, I wasn't too excited for the group's latest comeback. This was especially true after I saw their silhouette teaser, which appeared to follow in the footsteps of "Confused" and "Miniskirt" with more ass, less good music.

But dammit, I'm nothing if not an optimist, so I put my best face forward and pressed play.

MNet is blurring out Kris' face

You won't BELIEVE who it is!
On a recent episode of MNet's Exo File fans were quick to notice in one segment that Kris' face was blurred out. No doubt to shield citizens from that hideous visage and totally not because of recent legal troubles and because since his legal contract with SM blah blah blah. This isn't the first time something like this has happened, during Daniel of Dalmatian's drug scandal he was also shown blurred out in TV segments.

Moments later.

A lot of fans are taking it personally however. I can't blame them, MNet/the rest of the world is out to get them.

The Best of the Worst: June 12 (or 13 or 14)

My apologies for the late Best of the Worst this week. I was gone the middle of the week and just didn't have the juice for it when I came home. I'm back now, and ready to have at it!

This week, Simon D made everyone uncomfortable with his innuendos.

Shakira may say the hips don't lie, but I think in Sunny's case, it's the face.

Cheerz: Hyuna "Bubble Pop"

To atone for forgetting Hyuna's birthday this year, I dedicate this here Cheerz in the name of one Kim Hyuna on this 13th day of June in the year 2014.

Now blow out the candles, or bubbles, or whatever.

Cheerz: Sistar "Lovin' U"

This Cheerz might (definitely, absolutely, for realsies) be late, but that doesn't mean it's an inferior pick. It's Sistar, and you know that means quality.

So much quality

It's an appropriate pick, too, as this week the group's agency confirmed their July comeback. So if you're impatient like me, here's a Cheerz to tide you over.

The Best of the Worst: June 5

Welcome back, everyone, and happy June! Or not so happy June, because here we are with more crappy kpop news. This week, we have someone who hates selcas, a group that doesn't hang out that much, and a dog fight. But don't get your hopes up for great drama. It's a literal dog fight: A couple idols' dogs duke it out on Twitter.

They say animals often look like their owners. I'd say that's half-true here.

Some Words About: My Name is Kim Sam Soon

Yesterday Fany and I finished My Name is Kim Sam Soon (My Lovely Sam Soon/My Sweet Sam Soon) wrapping up another series in our Hyun Bin-a-thon. I guess it wasn't really a 'thon considering it was only the second show with him in it, but whatever.
