[Original Feature] Then & Now: HyunA

By in News posted Oct September 5th, 2014 No comments

Known for her striking looks and her risque outfits, HyunA has been turning heads practically since her debut with 4minute. She has garnered her fair share of criticism and whether it is genuinely earned or just jealousy, no one can deny that she is a chart-topper winning awards left and right. It"s a formula that is obviously working. 




Debuting with the Wonder Girls in 2007, HyunA was practically a fresh-faced schoolgirl, bubbly and exuberant, with a haircut inspired by Dora the Explorer ;). However, it was with the girl group 4minute that the video vixen would start to shine. Their first single "Hot Issue" peaked at number 5 on the Gaon charts, and the second, "Muzik," hit #3

On the April 10th episode of B2ST"s new reality show "Showtime Burning the BEAST", Hyunseung was asked, "If HyunA wasn"t a part of Troublemaker, which idol would you like to join you?" He was given a few choices, like Girl"s Day"s Hyeri, Sunmi, and SISTAR"s Hyorin.

Without even hesitating, Hyunseung responded, "Sunmi for me." The members poked fun at him, saying, "You like her, don"t you," and "You can"t put your personal feelings into it. Think about it from the public"s point of view."


Who would you match up with Hyunseung if HyunA was, unfortunately, not a part of Troublemaker?

Radio StarKyuhyun recently suggested to HyunA that they do a duet together.

The December 18 episode of MBC’s “Radio Star” was a special about ‘obsessive guys,’ and on the episode, Kyuhyun said, “You say I obsess over non-celebrities? From now on, I’m going to obsess over celebrities. HyunA, instead of Hyunseung, how bout a duet with me?” and he did a little dance. Kyuhyun had gotten a reputation for only liking to date and flirt with non-celebrities from a previous episode of “Radio Star,” and alluded to this in this latest episode.

When asked how she felt about acting with Hyunseung, HyunA blushed and said, “It was embarrassing.” The female idol is known for her bright and youthful personality, which is a true opposite of her charismatic image on stage.

Hyunseung confessed, “It was very awkward. As it has been two years since we promoted as a unit, shooting intimate scenes felt embarrassing and awkward,” but added, “However, we are both from the same company and it is not our first time working as a duo, so we worked in harmony

The new music video for Now was released on October 28 with a big red 19+ mark stamped right from the beginning, so we were expecting some juicy stuff, and Trouble Maker delivered that but left us a bit puzzled by the small details.

That is, until we found out the music video was based on the story of American outlaws, Bonnie and Clyde, which we wish we knew before we started this reaction.

G: Oh wow
E: Those girls in bed with him are not Hyuna
G: Definitely 19+

G: Why is there a gun at his crotch?
G: And hundred dolla bills
E: That could be a dirty statement
G: Just saying what I see

By in News posted Oct August 21st, 2014 No comments

The only thing better than seeing your favorite K-pop stars in all their sexy glory is seeing some of the parodies that follow their iconic hits. Different from simple covers, these parodies are meant to bring out a laugh, usually by having completely random comedians and other funny people performing them (granted, some are pretty good). As with all things involving comedy, you ought not to take any of the following videos seriously. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all, no?

Take a look at some of our favorite K-pop parodies:

Celebrity couple photoshoots sometimes have us staring in envy or cringing away in embarrassment. Though points like backdrop, hair and makeup, concept, and photographers factor into the celebrity"s solo photoshoot, it"s a completely different story when celebrities pair up for couple shoots. It gets trickier because no matter how well one celebrity performs, if his partner doesn"t pull her own weight (or vice versa), the photos end up looking out of place and awkward.


The following are a series of celebrity couple pictorials. Some work, others don"t, and a few really don"t.

A lot of artists were doing full-scale promotions in June, particularly boy groups who came back with something to prove! So we"ve collected some of the top, attention-grabbing boy groups that promoted in June to see which one did the best job. (Keep in mind that some of the groups" releases happened in late May - such as Fly to the Sky on May 19 - but their promotional cycles have been heavy in the month of June more so than May.)


It was difficult, especially as these artists came back more mature and charismatic than ever, but the writers below gave each one a score from 1 (worst) to 5 (best) in four different categories: music, MV, performance, and originality. They also revealed their reasoning behind it. Check out the results below and give us your own scoring and thoughts for: B2ST ("Good Luck"), Boyfriend ("Obsession"), INFINITE ("Last Romeo"), U-KISS ("Don"t Flirt"), VIXX ("Eternity"), ZE:A ("Breathe"), GOT7 ("A"), and Fly to the Sky ("You You You")
