B1A4 – Lonely

Most Beautiful Songwriter On The Planet demonstrates the fine art of levitation, as the boys try not to freeze their bits off while filming outdoors in a Korean winter. If talents were apportioned fairly, Jinyoung would just be a pretty … Continue reading

Siusin And Heechul

Siusin is bored with X-Men, and is now fascinated with K-pop. Maybe it’s the faces, maybe it’s the voices. Maybe she’s just humouring me to ensure an ongoing supply of tuna. Who knows, but it does play merry hell with … Continue reading

Ryeowook’s Hair and Shrieking At Siwon

I now have Ryeowook’s lavender hair, and expect to acquire the matching angelic face and sublime voice imminently. Any. Minute. Now. At the moment, though, I’ve got a face for radio, and my vocal abilities can best be summed up … Continue reading

Gaho, Ha Hyun-woo – Itaewon Class OST

30 seconds of this song made me watch a 19 hour TV series. That’s a pretty good ROI, don’t you think? This first song is so damn inspiring, it could make you stride out into the street to lead a … Continue reading

Shinee – Ring Ding Dong

You know those trashy magazines with headlines like “ALIEN worms CRAWLED in my EAR and ATE my BRAIN!!!”? They’re talking about this song. From Jonghyun’s first powerfully belted “Baby”, through the hypnotic bridge of “Rocka rocka rocka rocka rocka rocka … Continue reading
