Sexy, Sleazy, or… Something Else?

Ever since the turn of the year, there has been an uproar among the K-pop net-fandom(as there always is). A plethora of girl groups have deemed it fit to comeback with overly suggestive and sexual manifestations. Skin-tight black outfits are now the trend, my friend.

Top 25 Most Played Songs on my iPod: 2012

Unfortunately, my end-of-the-year posts have to bleed into 2013(something I really didn’t want to do). But, due to my extremely busy winter break, it just happened this way. Thank you, Rican family.

Don’t expect grave detail about each song(25 is a lot. guys), but I thought it would be cool to compare to your own and see how different our tastes might be! Without further ado, my Top 25 Most Played Songs of 2012!

Fanservice vs. Sexual Orientation: What’s Okay?

The world of K-pop is almost home to controversy; there is never a day that passes when people aren’t debating something. Whether it comes from the mouth of the horse, the story-jumbling media, or war-fighting netizens, there is always something happening that leaves a bad taste in your mouth. What’s worse is when people actually logically speak about these situations. Rabid fans declare flame wars and attack those who speak neutrally. Crazy, much?
