Using the slow dance concept that works well for her sub-unit Sistar19 earlier this year, “One Way Love” is about a girl’s thought on the sadness of having a one way love and not getting loved in return. It also features the much criticized crab dance. “One Way Love” is written by Brave Brothers and it is the third song of this genre written by the hitmaker this year. Sistar19’s “Gone Not Around Any Longer” and After School’s “First Love” were also big hits. “One Way Love” has already won on MBC Music Core last week, M!Countdown, and KBS Music Bank this week.

Best Pepero Kisses for Pepero Day!

November 11 marks Pepero Day, a South Korean holiday! As this particular date looks like a line of Pepero sticks, or cookie sticks, (11/11) Koreans like to take this opportunity to show their friends and loved one affection by exchanging these sweet, thin snacks.

K-Pop fans may know of Peperos not only as a delicious treat, but as the enabler of some awesome eye candy, especially when idols utilize them for a Pepero kiss! The Pepero kiss game is where two people need to eat a Pepero together, “Lady and the Tramp” style, to make the shortest possible leftover in the middle. Of course, they can always choose to leave nothing in the middle and go for that kiss.

Remember the last time you opened your internet browser thinking, “Finally, time to get some honest work done?” It’s fine, neither do we. And that’s because life as a K-pop fan is demanding, what with all the scandals and couple revelations and album drops and plagiarism cases and booty shorts and bondage concepts to keep track of, it’s amazing some of us make it to school or work everyday.

Roundtable: The Annual Valentine’s Chocolate Game! Written by Seoulbeats On February 13, 2015

It’s that time of the year again!

The K-pop gods have, for some reason, granted you the opportunity to give a Valentine’s Day gift to all the members of your Hallyu bias list. You slave away, hand-making chocolate for your bias list and your efforts pay off. Unfortunately, the chocolates are so delicious that you get carried away with the taste-testing.

You realize too late that you’ve eaten pretty much all of the chocolate — only three pieces are left. You look at the measly amount sitting on the kitchen bench, then at your bias list. After hurriedly beseeching the K-pop gods to magically multiply your now-pitiful stash (which doesn’t work, by the way) you come to the realization that, this year, you may have to be a bit more economical with your love.

We Got Married (WGM) is that one TV guilty pleasure that has managed to stay afloat for many years. The show is also magnet for trouble for the cast as audiences for some reason continue to have a hard time believing the show is not real. In its latest recasting, the show has brought on BtoB’s Sungjae and Red Velvet’s Joy as one couple, and Oh Min-seok and Kang Ye-won as the other.

Hello all, and welcome back to each other edition of SB Week in Review! Here’s what you have got ignored this week:

Serious News This Saturday, South Korea celebrates the 70th anniversary of liberation from Japan with Liberation Day. Generally, public vacations that fall on weekends aren’t extended, yet in an try to strengthen the economy (and carry approval ratings) President Park Guen-hye declared Friday the 14th a countrywide holiday as well. Partially in the spirit of Liberation Day, President Park Guen-hye also granted a large number of presidential pardons — adding for a couple of executives who were jailed for embezzlement. The protests outdoor the japanese Embassy took a gruesome turn this week when a guy lit himself on hearth throughout a demonstration. Since this week marks the 70th anniversary of liberation from Japan, this week’s rally used to be the biggest of the year as protesters continue to call for an apology for the thousands of girls who were forced into sexual slavery throughout the japanese occupation. Not even his army enlistment might stay the Kim Hyun-joong drama at bay. This week, Ms. Choi withdrew her proceedings opposed to Kim’s lawyers bringing up “unnecessary disputes.” The KCSC determined to impose their heaviest fine opposed to Show Me the Money network, MNet, for Song Mino‘s (iKon) offensive lyrics back in July. Debuts and Comebacks B1A4 kicked off the comebacks this week with the captivating music “Sweet Girl” and their 6th mini album of the similar name. We would possibly know him principally as an actor, yet So Ji-sub could also be known to dabble in the rap marketplace each and each now and again. This week, he dropped “Cola Baby” featuring Soul Dive, DJ Juice and an oversized bottle of Coke. Show Me the money 4 rapper Candle debuted with the track “GVO” at the 13th. Simon D is back with the unmarried “Simon Dominic” and a new album soon to follow. Producer and musician Primary returned for the primary time in 3 years with the album Primary 2 on August 12. DJ duo Axodus released “Hold On” featuring vocals through Shinee‘s Key. Teasers and Announcements Seo Kang-joon will take at the role of Baek In-ho in upcoming popular web-drama-turned-K-drama Cheese in the Trap. Hyuna is coming back with her fourth solo mini album. as neatly as a couple of scandalous teaser images, Cube also released a 19+ teaser for the impending album. Upcoming VIXX sub-unit LR (Leo & Ravi) released the primary video teasers for their debut music “Beautiful Liar.” Rapper and SMTM4 coach Jay Park announced his plan to go back in fall with a rap album. Popular trio SG Wannabe are set to go back with “Heart Beating” at the 19th. The romantic MV teaser definitely builds anticipation for the comeback. The “party” continues for Girls’ Generation, who will in spite of everything be liberating their 5th full-length album, Lion Heart, later this month. The comeback will take position over two days, with six songs being released on either the 18th and 19th to finish the 12-track album. Reportedly, Red Velvet will soon observe Girls’ Generation in SM‘s never finishing series of comebacks. Rumors also are humming about an f(x) comeback this fall. N (VIXX), Mina (AOA) and Ha-young (APink) will be stepping up as the hot assistant MCs for Weekly Idol. YG kicked off each other circular of ambiguous teasers on Twitter — this one even more indistinct than the last. Expectantly they don’t leave lovers at nighttime too long. Hyorin (Sistar), Zico and Paloalto announced an upcoming hip-hop collaboration, regardless that additional main points still remain beneath wraps. Other News KCON NYC came about this beyond weekend with acts reminiscent of Girls’ Generation, Teen Top, AOA and VIXX taking the degree in New Jersey. Thankfully, it sounds as if attendees were spared each other NC-17 Fanfic open mic. GD & TOP‘s “Zutter” used to be deemed undeserving for broadcast through KBS. Since YG also announced that they’ve got no plan to censor the lyrics, “Zutter” is probably no longer carried out on KBS’ Music Bank. The alternative part of Made Series E, “Let’s Not Fall In Love,” remains in the clear. Tao gave his first post-Exo interview with Chinese media outlet Sina. During the interview, Tao addressed his regrets of criticizing former member Kris, in addition bringing up his reasons for leaving the group. Though it gave the impression of a fit made in heaven to some, Yoona and Lee Seung-gi have confirmed their break-up this beyond week. But as one romance ends, each other begins: Actors Song Seung-hun and Liu Yifei went public with their dating this week. MBC‘s Idol Sports Championship took position once back this week. In step with usual, the development stirred up more negative press than anything. T-ara discovered themselves in their fan-site’s deficient graces whilst Mamamoo‘s Moonbyul sustained an ankle injury. When will the mess this is the Idol Sports Championship come to an end? It’s proving to be the year for SM Entertainment as the firm reported their best possible revenues ever in the primary part of 2015. Not surprisingly, the firm also saw the biggest album sales throughout this time as well. YG, at the other hand, took house five Red Dot awards for their album and product design.
