2014 in Review: The Good, The Bad, The WTH?

2014 has been one heck of a year, to put it mildly. We’ve laughed, cried, and been furious and vastly disappointed. There has been good music, and there has been awful music.

2014: The Year of SME’s Monstrous Suckiness

2013 in Review: Embracing Your Inner Creeper

K-Pop is rife with trends and common threads (read: every MV seemingly using the same set and props). In 2013, we saw a trend pop up in MVs: the supernatural and disturbing.

The Bogusness That Is MAMA

So, in case you’ve been living under a rock, the 2013 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) were recently held in Hong Kong.
