this is a function of how much my tastes have changed whilst living in korea. a year ago, this would have been too simple and spare for me, now i walk around in pink trenchcoats and round sunglasses and mumble a lot

3 years before snsd's "the boys", sm had another failed american english-language debut. if boa's album couldn't make it, no kpop can. this was a bonus track that wasn't on my copy so i'd never heard it until today. sean garrett produced it! he produced every hit in the 00s and MILEY CYRUS #BANGERZ. THIS IS A #BANGERZ.

didn't even occur to me until sy's instagram video, but a song about the benefits of putting things in the rear-view is the perfect song to sum up 2014. happy new year. 🐑

dbsk was my first favourite kpop group. i just got tickets to see them in seoul next month. they have fewer members than when they started, but those who wanted to stay are still selling out domes and stadiums. this is something certain of us need to be reminded of right now.

1) never performed live, no choreo, totally underrated 2) omg this was totally about jessica wasn't it (yuri wrote the lyrics) 3) sooyoung absolutely killing the background melody on the chorus 4) hit that high note, tae, you can do it! you get three tries!

i've been thinking a lot about 개선, which business students think means "constant improvement" but is more about trying to take an idea (someone else's) from slightly flawed to 99.99% perfect. here is john newman's "love me again" taken to that next level; zero sugarcoating of the source material's vengeful dumped-dude creepiness. also: he's from chicago!

by IU x Seo Taiji
do we have a cultural analogue for seo taiji? he invented kpop, then (temporarily) killed kpop by going hardcore punk, then spent 20 years daring people to keep listening to him by playing experimental electronica and heavy metal. seo taiji was chillwave when your dad was dating cheerleaders.
Jammed: 19th Oct 2014
co-title from new solo mini by secret's jieun. lost count of how many times they busted out the snow machine on m countdown last night, so anything with a top-down summer 1997 vibe is going to sound like the best song ever by comparison amirite. also: robot phone
