Shinee has to be one of the most talented groups that SM group has on its roster and that’s saying a lot considering that SM has Super Junior and SNSD among its ranks as well. Ever since their debut, they’ve constantly impressed with their vocals and their dance skills. I love how every member here sings with gusto and dance so flawlessly. Although they haven’t released a Korean album since fall 2010, their return is, needless to say, one of the most anticipated releases this year. So did their fourth mini album, live up to their impressive legacy thus far?

In honor of the rainy days that the east coast has been getting a lot lately, I’d like to present you my ten favorite K-pop songs to listen to when it’s pouring outside.
Here’s a brief chat about these songs.
Rainy days are very relaxing for me. I grew up in the Philippines and when it rains, it really RAINS. Typhoons are common there that I’ve grown to love the rain. So it’s no surprise that rainy days are some of my favorite types of weather.

I mean look at them–I mean, DON’T LOOK AT THEM), I want to shed some light on a recent phenomena that is really upsetting me: RED HAIR.

I'm trying to be avant-garde here people, sheesh!
Last week, we posted the live performance of Junsu’s “Intoxicated”–his raunchiest and dirtiest lyrics ever–that features one of the most heinous use of English in a Korean song yet. It’s a common thing among native speakers to make fun of foreigners who can’t speak the language properly, who often use bad grammar, or have accents that suggests English wasn’t your first language (I belong in the last category). K-pop stars are not exception to the mockery. They’ve been the subject of major flubs with English lyrics and pronunciation.
