The Kpopalypse Awards is back! Are you tired of all the blah blah of regular Korean awards ceremonies? Then read on to see who was given accolades by Kpopalypse for their outstanding work in 2016!
I’ve written before about people wanting to become k-pop idols, and how realistic (or not) that is… but what about people who aim to be songwriters? Is k-pop songwriting a realistic goal? Can it make money? How to best approach pitching your songs to the k-pop market? Never fear as Kpopalypse has all the trufax!
Last year I made a post predicting events in k-pop over the course of 2016. It’s time for Kpopalypse to revisit this post to see how right/wrong I was, and also to predict what’s going to happen in k-pop in 2017!
So Donald Trump won the US elections, and predictably everyone is freaking out. However, as usual nobody’s asking the really big question, the kind of question that in this day and age you can only see answered properly on Kpopalypse blog – what does a Trump victory really mean for k-pop? Read on to find out!
I’m not sure why this generated so much concern – he’s playing a bad guy, so obviously him having “bad person tattoos” is entirely appropriate and in-character. It says a lot about the weak pussyness of our PC Internet culture when we can’t allow our fictional evildoers to be truly evil. However, I do agree that the folks behind B.A.P’s image did miss an opportunity to customise the symbolism so it was more effective and relevant to Korea, after all it’s not Russia that needs saving, it’s T-ara who need saving from netizen bullies… and it’s not jews that need beating, but Korean netizens! Let Kpopalypse show you how to be the kind of Internet bad-meaning-good guy on Korean portal sites that will make the likes of B.A.P’s artistic director go weak at the knees!
Delayed comebacks – don’t you hate them? Why can’t your favourite group come back more often like all those other boring stupid annoying groups that you don’t care about? Never fear, Kpopalypse has the answers!
Hi caonimas! As many of you may know, SS501 singer Kim Hyun Joong was recently found innocent of all those nasty domestic violence charges! Courts can never be wrong, so this means that Kim Hyun Joong must be the great person that Kpopalypse always knew he was! It’s time for a celebration post!
