It feels not so long ago that I put together my picks for the best 5 Things of 2013 so it’s hard to believe that 2014 is over and that we are well on our way into 2015. 2014 was a tumultuous year with joy and sorrow, good and bad, love and hate. The following are the Things I LOVED the most about 2014 in the K-popiverse.

5. Surviving the K-popcalypse

We should’ve known that 2014 was going to be a rocky year for K-pop when on the first day of the year Lee Seung-gi and SNSD‘s  Yoona were revealed to be dating. It was a rough year for Korea’s premiere girl group as soon after Sooyoung and actor Jung Kyung-ho, Tiffany and 2PM‘s Nichkhun and leader Taeyeon and Exo‘s Baek-hyun were all also revealed to be dating. Hyoyeon was charged with assault by her ex-boyfriend, and then the unthinkable–Jessica was booted from Girls Generation.

allkpop [TV Program Guide] [Variety Edition]: [Op-Ed] Leessangs departure from variety: the problem with jumping to conclusions

I don’t usually discuss serious topics on the allkpop TV Guide. But this past week, something really big happened, something worth talking about – and it, sadly, didn’t need to happen at all.

I am, of course, talking about the hip-hop duo Leessang‘s announcement that they would be ending all of their stints on variety programs, with Gil on ‘Infinity Challenge‘ and Gary on ‘Running Man’. This is a reaction to the massive backlash they have received over a concert (‘Super 7‘), featuring the ‘Infinity Challenge’ members, that was produced by Leessang Company.

Following her recent comeback with the album “Modern Times,” Singer IU will be featured on the cover for the November edition of the fashion magazine “CéCi” in Korea, China, and Thailand.

The photo shoot was shot with the concept “A Queen’s Return,” an appropriate theme for the current queen of the Korean music charts. Some photos from the shoot were released on October 14.

In the photos, she breaks away from her usual adorable and lovable appearance. Here IU is pure, classy, and chic: a charismatic new look for her.
