[Girl Group Wars] Top Girl Group Visuals 2015 Edition

Girl Groups - 04

Another year, another update.  Whereas the last update was really just a reshuffle of the order of the original list, this year brings several new faces.  I don’t know if it’s because I’m a year older or if my tastes changed, but even I was kind of surprised at how different this year’s list was.  Just like last year, the arbitrary visual designation does not apply; everyone is eligible.

[Random Rants] Farewell Sica

So obviously one of the biggest news in the kpop world the last few days is Jessica’s surprising dismissal from SNSD.  The fallout has been swift with fingers being pointed everywhere and theories popping up left and right as to what happened.  Even SME’s stock price has dropped over 8% since the news dropped.  I could go into details of what happened, but it’s probably easier to read it elsewhere.  I personally prefer the Asianjunkie articles here, here, and here.

[Girl Group Wars] Top Girl Group Visuals 2014 Edition

Girl Groups 03

It’s been over two years since this post and so I decided to do a quick refresher just because of how popular the old one seemed to be.  The requirement that they be the face of the group was a bit too restrictive, and led to many a debate on comments, so this time I’m opening it up to all members.  So without further ado, here is my current list of the best looking idols.  As always, feel free to post your own list as well.

[Random Rants] Poll: Favorite SNSD Member’s OST Part 2

Poll - SNSD OST Part 2

Another year, and another round of OSTs for the SNSD girls.  In the last poll, Taeyeon garnered 38% of the vote as of this post and has a fairly commanding lead over Tiffany’s offering.  This year, 3 out of the 4 vocalists are back with Sunny being the new addition replacing Seohyun.  I’m surprised that Jessica’s song did so poorly last year, given that it was my personal favorite, but hopefully she does better this time around.  Check out all four and vote again below!

[Best of the Best] Top 5 Drama OSTs from 2011

While not actively promoted on the weekly music shows, OSTs from dramas that air through the year garner almost as many downloads on the various music portals.  Often times, I find I enjoy these songs more than those released as part of an album.  Here I will discuss 5 such OSTs that made my music playlist in 2011.

*Special Note*  Baek Ji Young’s “That Woman” from Secret Garden would have made this list, but it was technically released in 2010 and as such will not be counted.
