TWICE’s New Japanese Single “Better” Teaser + Preview

Collapse )

Twice’s last stage for I Can’t Stop Me was yesterday :((( But it makes sense as their Japanese promotions are now starting. “Better” will be officially released on the 18th but I have noticed Japanese singles/comebacks are posted on YouTube well before the release date so we could see this MV released possibly this week, stay tuned!

I might make a Twice roundup post tomorrow. Congrats to receiving 4 Music Show Wins so far ladies, hopefully they collect more even when they aren’t promoting!

✨ Gone But Not Forgotten: T-ARA 👑 ✨ [part 1]

In this series I want to go through artists that are gone, but not forgotten. I will go from debut till disbandment or [indefinite] hiatus, remembering the time we had together and look back on their highs and lows.


T-ara is a South Korean girl group, formed in 2009 by MBK Entertainment. A broad array of visual concepts have earned the group a "chameleon-like" reputation. The group officially debuted in July 2009 with the single "Lie". They went on indefinite hiatus on January 3, 2018 allowing the members to pursue their solo careers. Collapse )

K-dramas likely to decrease next year amid pandemic

The number of South Korean TV drama series is expected to decrease next year due to the fallout of the protracted novel coronavirus pandemic, experts said Monday.

In the summer, when the country was struggling with a resurgence in novel coronavirus infections, TV studios and broadcasters halted productions of dramas and shows.

Entertainment giant CJ ENM and its drama production affiliate Studio Dragon suspended drama filming for a week in August, with several shows on tvN and OCN affected by the stoppage. Other networks, including KBS and SBS, followed them.

Subsequent temporary suspensions and delays stemming from tightened social distancing have slowed down scheduled productions for this year and struck a blow to the industry as a whole.

Estee Lauder accused of racism in product switch

"Estee Lauder gave us racism as a birthday present."

Global cosmetics manufacturer Estee Lauder has been embroiled in controversy over alleged racial discrimination after a consumer complained in an online community late Friday about the cosmetic giant's inappropriate handling of an online purchase.

The writer of the post said she purchased a foundation set online shipped from an Estee Lauder store in a department store in Seoul, adding it was for her younger sister's birthday. She claimed she received a product completely different from her original order along with the store's note explaining that they sent a different item because the color she chose "does not suit Asians."

BLACKPINK's Lisa in Céline for ELLE China

Beautiful Lalisa is on the December cover of ELLE China ! And there's an editorial ! And a behind the scenes !

I don't know if Lisa doesn't want to change her signature hairstyle or if it's a requirement from YG but I want to see her without bangs. I want volume in her hair too. At least a wig ? This Céline collection needs big hair ! Her makeup is a bit too safe (big lashes, thick liner, a smokey crease would have looked so good on her big eyes !). That white blouse is beautiful though !
(Her dark nail polish stained her nails, like come on ELLE, you could have put a base under it or leave the polish for the whole shoot.)
