I’m only recapping the Korean version because one viewing was enough for me.
It’s that time again! Time for Ahjummas Anonymous’s highly objective and impartial list:
Because there really aren’t that many K-pop idols to rank, rather than open the list up to non-Korean celebs (seeing as this is a K-pop blog) I’ve decided to instead split the Hot 100 into two groups–50 men and 50 women.
READ THIS PART BEFORE GETTING BUTTHURT PLEASE. The last time I tried this I did alphabetical order, but then people couldn’t read and got butthurt over the order, so I’m going to attempt to rank this time so if people are gonna get butthurt they’ll at least be accurate about it. I spent a good long time and did a lot of soul-searching when creating this list, so if you’re mad I didn’t include your fave, well, I also left off some of my own faves too. Even with 50 spaces there just wasn’t enough room to include everyone. Some idols I find attractive were also left off because of inactivity, and since this is a 2015 list, it would be disingenuous to include someone who was last seen in 2012. Google image searching 50 guys and picking an HQ photo for each takes longer than you think. Finally, if you know me, you know I have some fucked-up taste in men, and this highly objective and impartial post is still largely predicated on my own personal tastes. Having read all this, if you’re going to leave a butthurt comment, please preface said butthurt with “Dear fangirl proctologist,” so I at least know it’s informed butthurt.
Finally, there will be no underaged idols on this list so if your favorite fetus isn’t here, that’s why.
Obviously, this post is extremely image heavy. I don’t own any of these images.
I didn’t think I’d be writing about Exo again on this blog, but here we are. Exo returns, a year later and two members fewer, with “Call Me Baby” off their second full album, “Exodus.” SM, you wrong (but so right) for that title.
2014 was quite the roller coaster year in K-pop. Here, I present Ahjummas Anon’s year in review.
You may wonder why some popular or chart-dominating songs are curiously absent from my top picks. The only reason I can give is that my choices are completely and 100% subjective, based purely on my own opinions. Does that make this post biased? Hell yeah, it does. I’m not even trying to front like it isn’t. I am not claiming to represent anyone else’s opinions but my own. I did solicit suggestions from friends and twitter followers, but all of my commentary is my own honest opinion. Obviously, as with any opinion piece, you’re welcome to disagree, but popularity or chart position was never a factor in any of my picks. If it’s a popularity contest you seek, I suggest fan-voted year-end lists instead.
I am linking, not embedding youtube videos since the embeds will significantly slow the loading of this page.
It seems everyone has something to say about Exocalypse ’14 (if you’ve been living under a rock, you will see what I’m referring to soon enough). So it’s time for me to add my 2 cents, I suppose.
Ahh, Exo. K-pop’s latest juggernaut. I cannot believe this is their first official recap here (as opposed to unofficial), but have no fear, Exo fen, for I plan to correct this grievous oversight.
