Jessica has left SNSD

Earlier today Jessica or someone who hacked her weibo account posted the following:
I was excited about our upcoming fan events only to shockingly be informed by my company and 8 others that as of today, I'm no longer a member. I'm devastated - my priority and love is to serve as a member of GG, but for no justifiable reason, I am being forced out.

The Best of the Worst: Sept. 25

Can you believe it? It's already been a week. And we have plenty to talk about for this first Best of the Worst of Fall 2014. We have a half-naked actor/model whacked out on goofballs, a couple of celebs who are most definitely not gay, and that dog from "My Lovely Girl" gaining popularity.

No, not this one ...

I know who the other Crayon Pop subunit member is

 So there's going to be a Crayon Pop sub-unit and today 50% of it was revealed when Choa said:
“Ta-da! I can reveal that the first member of the Crayon Pop subunit is me, ChoA! We have been working very hard on the new subunit album. Please expect a lot! Who do you think the next member will be? That will be revealed tomorrow!”
While I'm legally obligated to keep a secret until tomorrow when it's officially revealed I can give you this clue. Her name starts with 'W' and ends in 'Y'.
I actually hope it's Soyul to be honest.

Lee Hoo needs to take a step back, avoid the twitters

In case you missed one of the strangest stories in k-pop over the weekend ZE:A's Lee Hoo has basically gone cray. It all started Saturday night when Lee Hoo tweeted a series of strange tweets attacking the CEO of their company, Star Entertainment. Among a vast plethora of at times undecipherable tweets he said: 
I cried and asked you.. CEO Shin Joo Hak… I asked you not to cross the line.. You crossed the line that you shouldn't have and now you must deal with it. My lid is open. I have dealt with [everything], from hair loss to depression. Be prepared… President, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. All I wanted was a warm word.
After this it later came out that essentially the CEO had agreed to pretty much everything including contract and profit adjustments.

Cheerz: Taetiseo "Twinkle"

After a two-and-a-half-year wait, Taetiseo finally came back! Unfortunately, in true SM form, they released the stinker "Holler." Now I have to air out my ears with the musical version of Febreze. Cheerz :[

The Best of the Worst: Sept. 18

Hello again, friends, and welcome back to The Best of the Worst! This week, we ponder a question that has plagued mankind for ages:

"Why can't we all just rip off 'Man From the Stars'?"

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Oppar really didn't mean it, promises not to do it again.

The girlfriend, known as 'A' of Kim Hyun Joong has put in a request to drop the charges of assault and battery, essentially letting him off the hook aside from an apology and damaged public perception. The lawyer went on to say that 'A' was planning on dropping all charges on no condition or receipt of settlement money as soon as Joong made an apology.

While it's acknowedged bullshit that he is getting off with beating his girlfriend for literally nothing we can all at least rest assured that his domestic abuse was probably just an isolated incident. Like I said in the title I'm sure Oppa didn't mean it. Oppa was probably just under a lot of stress.

Well at least his fans probably look at him with a shit load of scrutiny...

fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you 

So in conclusion, nothing has changed at all.

Soyou and her abs are having a comeback

Just recently I was wondering in regards to Soyou, "Do you even Lift"? I can definitively say she does. I can also definitely say she's making a solo comeback.

Being the middle of watching, "My Girlfriend is a Gumiho" I can't help but notice some similarities except for Shin Min Ah has nine-tails and Soyou here at least only has one. Lame. Anyway, on Sistar's Twitter it was written that the comeback will be on September 26th.

I'd party with 2PM

Kpop pisses me off sometimes. OK, ok, replace "sometimes" with "often," and that sentence would be accurate.

Venting your kpop grievances to a goat who has better things to do?
I've been there, bruh.

Review: Super Junior "Mamacita"

Like many people, I thought Super Junior was on the train to splitsville after their abysmal past few years' worth of releases, such as the forgettable "Spy" and the unforgettably embarrassing "Sexy, Free and Single." That discography combined with their lineup issues and military stints made disbandment the obvious next step.

Siwon opens up about his "Sexy, Free and Single" teaser.

Turns out, Super Junior's not finished. In fact, with their latest release, "Mamacita," the group proved it can still make good music. Maybe even, dare I say it, great music.

I shit you not.

An hour with the Music Core livestream chat

As a kind of experiment in masochism, I decided to focus my attention on the chat section during this week's Music Core livestream. Consider it my punishment for skipping out on this week's Best of the Worst.

The livestream chat on Youtube is filled with the dregs of kpop — fanwar spam, petty bickering, and all the emojis and exclamation points you could want!!!!

Between Super Junior competing against Sistar and Winner and comebacks from 2PM, Teen Top and T-ara, it was bound to be a long program. Join me as I recap an hour in kpop hell.

Cheerz: Beast "Shock"

Hola! Sorry for not posting a Best of the Worst this week. I should have, but just wasn't feeling it.

But anyway, I was going to post something 2PM-y for Cheerz both because I enjoy "Go Crazy" and because it was a good excuse to talk about Taecyeon. Then I realized it hasn't been that long since the last 2PM Cheerz.

So here we are with the next best thing: Beast.

I'm sorry, Beast. You deserve better than this.

This week's posts

Hi all. With everything going on with Ladies' Code, I won't be posting a Best of the Worst or Cheerz this week.

Instead, if you haven't seen it, enjoy the M!Countdown tributes to EunB.

And because we don't want to forget the good times with the group, either, here's one of my favorite live performances of theirs:

Ladies' Code involved in accident, EunB passes away while others members are seriously injured.

At around 1:20 AM, today while traveling to Incheon, Ladies' Code's bus slipped on a rainy road after a wheel on the bus they were traveling in fell off. While information is still coming in, EunB has died after she was ejected from the van during the crash, while the other two members onboard, Rise and Sojung were critically injured. In all there were seven people in the vehicle including a driver who was also killed, Rise and Sojung, as well as stylists and the manager (who were not seriously injured).

This post will be updated as more information becomes available.
