[MV Review] Spica.S - Give Your Love

UCAADs, I am on a roll. Eleven straight articles and I'm surprised I'm still awake considering some of the shitty songs I have had to listen to.

LABOUM - Pit-a-Pat

Sharing the same name as BESTie's debut song, I had high hopes that this song would also feature a lot of ass shaking. Well, I am sorry to disappoint you all.

[MV Review] Teen Top - Missing

In an effort to try and review more boy band MVs, I selected the most recent one on Loen's channel (as of October 11), so I selected this MV. I am already regretting this, and I chronicle my horrifying experience below.

[MV Review] Epik High - Born Hater

Epik High have finally made a comeback!! CELEBRATE!!

Buuuuut, since they're still under the YGE label, many people were very skeptical about how good this upcoming Shoebox album was going to be. After all, a lot of people were not happy with their YGE debut album, calling them YG-ified/shit and anything in between. From this preliminary offering, it seems like Epik High have struck a comfortable balance between their roots and their new company.

WARNING: Excessive amounts of GIFs ahead. Sorry m8s.

IU - Sogyeokdong

I expected to hate this song when I saw that Seo Taiji composed the song as I was expecting another "Nan Arayo" or some shit.

Kpopalypse language class - The Korean alphabet

It's a constant source of embarrassment to me that I DJ a k-pop radio show yet I can't speak a word of Korean.  I've got no plans to go to Korea or anything like that, but it sure would be nice to be able to read CD album liner notes and pronounce track titles correctly.  Also, it'd be great not having to rely on shady Netizenbuzz articles with creepy anti T-ara editorialising from NB herself in them for my netizen translations - it'd be especially nice to cut that particular umbilical cord.  Learning Korean language has been on my to-do list for a while now, but the trick is - how to get motivated to learn this shit as well as fit it into the rest of my busy schedule?  So I thought I'd make myself a blog post about it.


I always find that I memorise things much better if I'm forced to write down or type out the stuff, so by making this little alphabet post, it'll (theoretically) help me to remember the Korean characters and how they sound.  So this affair isn't one-sided and you the reader also get some value out of this even if you don't necessarily give a shit about learning Korean yourself, I'll use each letter as an excuse to extrapolate a bit on some things that are Kpopalypse-related that I've been asked about or that may be of interest to readers (or not).

Note: your browser/computer obviously needs to support Korean text reproduction or you ain't gonna see shit.
