Sunday Shitpost #9



Since this is the ninth installment of Sunday Shitpost, I figured this was as good as an excuse as any to play T-ara's No. 9.

Saturday Shitfest #34



Po Minit is supposed to make their comeback really soon, and normally I would be hyped, but Skrillex worked on the song.

Intro to J-Rock #1: moumoon



After I posted that Radwimps music video over a week ago, people were requesting that I post some recommendations. As someone who used to listen to a lot of J-Rock before getting into K-Pop, I figured it wouldn't hurt to give some suggestions. 2015 was a great year in J-Rock and revitalized my interest in the genre after barely listening to it for the past decade, mainly due to many of my favorite bands disbanding combined with discovering K-Pop as it started getting really good (2008).

[MV Review] G-Friend - "Rough"


Look I know I'm probably the only author on this site outside of Soyeon Friend that actually likes G-Friend but I feel like this song and video is worthy of a review since it's pretty awesome.

How I Would Deal With Dasom's Online T-ara Impersonator


So Dasom has an Internet bully who obviously gets his inspiration from T-ara. This is how I would handle the situation if I was the CEO of Starship Entertainment.

Seolhyun Tries To Win Over America With Guns

She succeeds in my book.

SeolhyunSuddenAttack1


I was bored and saw this on Asian Junkie, so I decided to post about it. Seolhyun poses in all black with guns for Sudden Attack which is some video game or something else I don't care about. Anyway there is an attractive woman with guns so any other Americans and gun loves can enjoy to the rest of this post. For the guns, of course.

Bump of Chicken - Butterfly



I'm glad to see you UCAADs again. I worked 200 hours over the past two weeks, so that is why I have been MIA. I should have a more reasonable schedule the next two months (55-70 hours a week versus 100 a week), so I'll be posting again. The only other real changes are me taking over STFU and HYSF going back to doing the day-to-day writing I used to do and writing long articles. It looks like whoever touches the STFU series ends up cursed, so let's hope the STFU series doesn't kill me.

Anyway, I found out that Bump of Chicken is releasing a new album titled "Butterflies," and they recently released their music video for "Butterfly". This sound is different from what they usually do, but you can still hear their normal sound under the synth beats produced by the keyboard. I personally like the direction change for them, as BoC typically has slower songs and a light-rock feel to them, so the synth beats do add some oomph without drastically changing how their songs sound.

Back in the day, "Karma" was my shit. And yes, it's the theme for Tales of the Abyss, which is tied for my favorite game ever (the other being Persona 3).

Sunday Shitpost #8


I'd like to start off this week's Sunday Shitpost by saying, "Yo fuck the Pats." Anyway, I'm doing this week's shitpost again, which means it's going to be short and probably not have something you'd love to shitpost about. Feel free to shitpost all you want in the comments about anything, though.

Best of the Worst: Jan. 21, 2016

Kpop tackled some deep, philosophical issues this week. After wading through all that substance, I was left with a few questions for you, readers, such as:

  • Would you turn down a billionaire's proposal of marriage even if you just met him once and didn't like him?
  • If you were going to petition a kpop media outlet for something, who would it be and why?
  • And does using the same filter as someone mean you're humping behind the scenes?

Deep.

The Kpopalypse k-pop music video drinking game

It's a little known fact that the Kpopalypse radio show already has its own drinking game, but what about people who don't give a shit about radio and just want to watch some YouTubes and get fucking drunk?  Well, this post is for you!

Radwimps - 記号として



Radwimps is quickly becoming one of my favorite groups, and I'm hoping they release an album this year, since their last album came out in 2013.

Stupid Things Fangirls Utter 94


This comment comes from an old Boyfriend article here on AKF in which just about the whole comments sections could provide enough STFU material to last two months.

Sunday Shitpost #7


Well, as AKF mentioned he's currently busy actually being a productive member of society so unfortunately that leaves the likes of me to carry on in his stead. Oh, well at least it's not like anything of note happened this week so this will be a rather short Sunday Shitpost.

Why I'm Stanning Tzuyu


Seeing as how her "scandal" went down and how easily JYP succumbed to Chinese netizens, I have nothing but support for her.

(Keep in mind, I don't want any AKF authors to feel that they can't post on this matter just because I now have. If anything, I want more people to speak up on this, so if you had a post planned on this subject, don't feel the need to discard it, please.)

Fancam Appreciation #17 - Hello Venus' Seoyoung

Best of the Worst: Jan. 14, 2016

This week, Kris (aka Wu Yi Fan) made one step closer to full world domination. The former Exo slave member will participate in this year's NBA All-Star Celebrity Game next month. Kris will play for Team Canada and will be coached by Drake (true story).

[MV Review] Dal Shabet - Someone Like U


Dal Shabet made a comeback one day after their fifth anniversary, and more importantly, just in time for me to have time to listen to it. Since it came out, I've listened to the song any time I have had a chance to...which isn't much.

Kpopalypse's 10 most fappable k-pop music videos of 2015

Let's be real for a moment and mention that apart from a few crybabies that can't handle what I write, and a few other people who don't follow k-pop closely and therefore appreciate the discovery value of finding stuff that they missed, nobody gives a shit about any of my lists apart from this one.  Favourite songs, worst songs?  Who the fuck cares about some Australian asshole's opinion.  Christmas bullshit?  It's a foregone conclusion that it all sucks, every year.  Don't worry readers, I know what you really want.

pervertheader

The year has come and gone so now is the time you've been waiting for, where Kpopalypse reveals the most fappable faptastic k-pop FVs of 2015!  Prepare yourself appropriately and read on if you dare!

Sunday Shitpost #6


It's another Sunday, and after the holidays, a shit ton of news came out. A lot of it bad, but there's some good stuff thrown in. This will be my last Sunday Shitpost (and Saturday Shitfest as well) of the month, as other authors will be filling in for me while I have no life because of work for the next few weeks. I will have some scheduled MV review that I'll write later today and schedule them on Wednesdays for the rest of the month. With that said, let's get to the shitfest.

[UPDATE] Blackface: What it IS and What it IS NOT



Enjoy this gif of Hyosung while you can because the rest of this post has some pretty nasty pictures.


Blackface is a hot topic in k-pop for both interesting and vapid reasons, and today we're going to cover what blackface is and isn't within the context of K-pop (and pretty much everywhere.)

WARNING: this post contains some frightening images, I will try to make it up to you towards the end.

Fancam Appreciation #16 - T-ara's Jiyeon



Of course we need a post to appreciate the Cyclops Overlord. I found a comment in another video that I'll post below that I had to share.

How's 2016 treating everyone? Are you kicking its ass, or are you more the Irene to its Wendy?




Well, anyway, this week we've got a nugu with a sugar daddy, an embarrassing kpop crossover, and an idol who used to be a sasaeng.

The Kpopalypse Awards 2015

The only awards ceremony anybody cares about is back!  Twelve months has passed so it's time for the second annual Kpopalypse awards!

Even more relevant than the MAMAs, it's time to look back on the last 12 months and find out who won accolades from Kpopalypse!

Bold predictions for Jay Park in 2016

Jay Park's ears allow him to hear misinformation from miles away.
A strange thing happened to me as I was ringing in the New Year. I suddenly realized I could see into the future! However, as with all things in life, it came with a downside. I could only see the future as it relates to Jay Park. I quickly realized this wasn't a blessing, but a curse. How I came into it I may never know, but as part of the healing process, my therapist tells me I should talk about it. So, that's why I'm here: to reveal to you everything that will happen to Jay Park in 2016. Now, it is still difficult for me to actually discern what the future holds, but I'll do my best.

If you have to second guess yourself on your language abilities, then maybe you shouldn't state that you know the language.





This would be similar to writing on resume that I'm conversational in Arabic after watching Team America. Or saying that I'm conversational in Japanese after watching a shitload of Japanese porn. 

Just because you fingered yourself to your favorite male idol in some obscure drama and understood three common words, that does not make you fluent in a language.

Guess the 2015 end-of-year best/worst list – survey responses!

Hi everyone, a while ago I did a survey and asked all you nice folks about what you thought I'd pick for my best/worst lists.  Many of you responded, and now that the official lists are out the results can now be published!

yooawink.gif
I'm not going to repost the fucking results here because I'm too lazy it's full of data tables and crap that are just too hard to recode for this site without breaking everything (mainly my nuts) so instead if you give a shit click the picture of Yooa above to go to the survey results!  Or if you don't care less, just fap!

Sunday Shitpost #5

This week's edition of Sunday Shitpost is literally filled with shit news because nothing happened this week.

San E is an edgy early 2000s teen


Earlier this year, San E committed the cardinal sin of being in the same room as someone who did something when, if you looked at it from a certain angle and squinted, could potentially be interpreted as something that might resemble an act of disrespect toward a YG artist. This led the loyal army of Mino fans to call for his head, or something to that effect. Little did they realise that he was one of the few things that made "Show Me the Money 4" watchable and actually seemed to be enjoying himself. What annoys me most about people getting pissy about the lineup change in "SMTM4" is that hate could have been far better directed if it had been pointed in the general direction of the album that Mr. E shat out this year: "The Boy Who Cried Wolf," which was unforgivably poor and lazy. That's especially obvious when comparing it to previous album "NOT Based on the True Story," which ticked all the right boxes in that it was good, whilst his new album ticked all the wrong boxes in that it was shit.

Weekly Showdown: Battle of the Labels

[Results of last showdown here]

Since there hasn't been any good new music (or at least anything showdown-worthy) these past two weeks, I decided I'd ask you guys this instead: Which record label do you think put out the best music in 2015? I'm just gonna put the "Big three," but you guys can click "other" if you think none are worthy enough.

Saturday Shitfest #30



Hnnng, Victoria covering Jolin Tsai's "Honey Trap". 8======D~~~~

I hope you guys had a great 2015. 2015 was a great year for me, but it made me busier, as evidenced as me being gone for the majority of 2015. 2015 was the slowest year for AKF with the least number of posts, and that is primarily my fault. However, being busy as fuck really teaches you how to manage your time, so expect 2016 to be about as busy as 2014 was. 2016 will still have all of the scheduled posts that we started rolling out in December, but during my slower seasons I'll be able to post a lot more, including long articles.

Also, AKF is already entering its sixth calendar year and the five-year anniversary is in April. I didn't expect this site to last this long. I really don't have anything planned for this year aside from just keeping this site alive.

suho_ftw's Top 25 Title Tracks of 2015

At first, I wasn't going to post this here to avoid overkill, but I got the OK.


This list was not easy. It took revising and re-editing, and it eventually came down to me with a pencil and paper writing down the songs it would physically hurt me not to put on the list. It started out as 15 and ended up being 25 because fuck it, why not? Not every song I loved wound up on this, just the ones that had to be in the top 25. 

Criteria/Disclaimers:

- Song must be a title track. B-sides have a separate list.
- Rap songs can be included, but this is primarily k-pop so I kept it down to a minimum.
- It's all my opinion.

Fancam Appreciation #15 - Fiestar's Cao Lu



With everyone jumping on board the Cao Lu hype train, I figured it was time for people to have a chance to fap to Cao Lu. More fancams after the jump.
