Girl Groups go sexy

This is something else I have spoke about before how I wish more girl groups would drop the sexy act even though it does sell well.


I had hugely high hopes for AOA I was looking forward to  a girl band and loved their style but then they became sexy and what happened to the band aspect ?

I wish there was a group that stayed true to their true personalities and selves to their musical interests. Normally if you are a band you do your band thing not  idol stuff. As a band you have more leeway in not needing to do dances with your music since you are supposed to be playing your instruments that is what being a band is all about after all  isn't it?

the other groups don't bother me too much but this one group has ALWAYS bothered me I know Sex sells but Originality sells as well! yes  those 4 other groups did not get very far by being cutesy all the time but cute isn't favored when they know they can get sexy  nothing wrong with mixing the two  but I think there should be a balance there is no originality anymore it's now who is the sexiest dancer who wears the sexiest clothes? Cuteness gets high points as well with fans so why not mix the two nothing wrong with that but  AOAs development really bothers me.

Journalism in Korea

I recently read an article that pointed out that it's not just the entertainment industry that is skewed in SK which many of us have known for a long while. This article was very interesting to me so I wanted to share it.

Fans of Korean entertainment often bemoan how terrible reporting can be on celebrity news. Whether it’s falsified stories about girl group members leaving the idol world forever, biased reporting towards certain entertainers or articles on news portals mysteriously disappearing, many people feel that there is serious room for improvement in the reporting and ethics of Korean entertainment journalism.
But this all pales into insignificance when compared with the issues facing political and current affairs journalism in South Korea right now. Issues so serious that many analysts are warning that the free press may be in danger under President Park Geun-hye’s government.

There were only 2 months in 2014 where there were no car accidents and I didn't put a lot of other things that happened in by the month  some because I do not consider them scandals and others well because there was already so much in the list already.
