Brown Eyed Girls models for Get Used Spring/Summer 2010 collection with Bling Jeans. Narsha, Miryo, Je-A, and Ga-In look smoking hot in these Get Used pieces, showing off their S-line and seductive looks and poses in the photo shoot.

And what is denim without sexy, fierce heels to go with. Those gladiator heels, multi-buckled maryjanes, ankle boots and platform heels, that the girls are spotted wearing with their skin-tight denims, are totally to-die-for.

Favorite pieces out of all these denims got to be those grey and blue tie-dye jeans, which are still very hot this season!

Family Outing 2 ratings plummet

Family Outing 2 had a great start, but things are not looking so good at the moment.

On the latest episode of the show, the ratings plummeted to 10.9%. Last week’s episode was 16.5%, and the ratings went down 5.6% today. Rival show, KBS Happy Together, had a rating of 24.3%, which had approximately 10% more viewers than the idol-packed show.

I assume that this is all due to 2PM’s current status. 2010 seems like a bad year in the Korean entertainment industry s0 far… will things get better?

There is about half an hour left on the West Coast to the end of our birthday.

It has been a year OMNTD has started and we would like to thank everyone for all your contribution: the posts, the gifs, the comments, the support, the understanding and your love.

When the comm first started, the mods struggled to keep the comm alive by posting kpop news and stuff by themselves. We ranged between 15-25 posts a day when we just started and now after a year and an LJ spotlight, we've seen some busy days, hitting 47 posts. This is all possible and due to everyone who posts, comments and lurks. We sincerely thank you for that.

OMNTD has exceeded our expectations and we now have over 9000 charms~. K-pop may have been upsetting, tumultuous and a hard time for some so far. We may argue, be rude sometimes, have different groups that we support and hate but ultimately, this is an interest that we commonly share. We are calm, cool and composed (sometimes) and we try to be rational ok. :D

Collapse )

So, share! When and why did you join OMNTD? What charm caught your eye?

Netizens say:
turdferguson: omona helped me reach my full fangirl potential! i didn't know i had it! thanks for creating it u guise
jyurian21: HAPPY BIRTHDAY OMONA! thanks for helping me make amazing e-friends! keep being an awesome place for wank, love & srs bsns
pinkiyoojin: "OMONA IS GRATE AND BITCHES GON HATE \o/, OMONA = Only MOtherfuckin' News site Asscrack lmfao idek" hahahah
twomin: 1 year with this monster ♥ lol our story just begin*~ (lol ss501 lyrics) keep being amazing bbs, never change~

Rules for an FFA still count. Please don't spam mad gifs (3 max!!!!!!), instead, if you want, take this time to have a fun chat with everyone. Mingle, tinkle some champagne glasses, interact, tell some jokes, whatever. :)
