Help for k-pop websites who don’t know exactly what to write about Sulli

Look at this picture of Sulli.  One image is worth a thousand clicks.

Kpopalypse’s guide to dating busty women for Kang Daniel to use when dating Twice’s Jihyo

Important dating news recently rocked the world of k-pop, as Wanna One’s Kang Daniel was revealed to be dating Twice’s Jihyo.  However, does Kang Daniel really know how to handle Jihyo?  I think it’s important that Daniel treats Jihyo right, so rather than leave everything to chance, I thought I’d lend a hand with a little bit of help.  If you’re reading this and you’re not Kang Daniel, or also not someone else who is dating a girl of Jihyoesque proportions, then this post isn’t really for you so feel free to consider reading it strictly optional.  Kang Daniel and other interested parties, read on!

Kpopalypse’s super-basic easy-to-follow and not at all condescending guide to k-pop for people who have only ever heard of BTS

If I insert a picture of BTS here (I’m pretty sure the above is a picture of BTS, Google Image Search told me so), hopefully you’ll click on the article and then you’ll click on my advertising. Hey it works for Billb… oh wait, I don’t have any advertising on this site. How am I supposed to farm BTS fans for ad revenue with no ads? Clearly I haven’t thought this through.
