Broduce 98: The Clusterfuck Begins

I meant to cover Broduce 98 from ep 1 but as I said in the VIXX post, I’m a pretentious academic in real life, and Broduce had the misfortune of airing when pretentious academia prevented me from covering it, so I finally got to marathon everything once I had free time so this will be my massive ep 1-5 recap/review.

VIXX take a homoerotic journey through the underworld in “Fantasy,” a.k.a “Praise Hades, Finally a Fucking Good Song Again.”

Let me share my history with a fandom near and dear to my heart, Star Trek. (Yes, I like weird nerdy shit, I run a fucking K-pop blog, what did you expect?) I have been boldly going ever since I first started watching O.G. reruns as a kid, right through the ‘90s renaissance and up till the 2009 reboot.

Review: Exo – “Call Me Baby”

“Someone Call Dr. Feelgood” or Exo – “Overdose”

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.

Review: VIXX: “Voodoo Doll” or “Torture Porn”

VIXX have done it again. I thought they might’ve peaked with “Hyde,” but they’re back with “Voodoo Doll” and despite its awkward title, it is fucking awesome. Continue reading “Review: VIXX: “Voodoo Doll” or “Torture Porn””
