This 5 Things is brought to you a day late thanks to YT and the man for shutting down the 5 Things channel =oP. What 5 Things stood out this past week in Kpop land? A Scandalous love affair, a rude awakening, the return of 2AM, running men traps, and a still beautiful idol. These are the 5 things that happened in Kpop this week that I think were just a little bit more special than the rest.
A Scandalous Love Affair
What an emotional roller coaster! I just barely was able to keep the tears in this past week, but I’m thinking before Sungkyunkwan Scandal ends me and a box of tissues will be having a get together.
“Did you say it would all end once we leave Sungkyunkwan? There’s no such thing as the end. Because I’ll just start over again and again every single day.”
Need I say more? A big shoutout to the Soompi SKKS subbing team, you saved my life.
A Rude Awakening on 1N2D
It’s not like the men of 1N2D have never been rudely awakened with all their crazy missions, but for some reason this just cracked me the hell up.
2AM makes a Comeback
It’s great to see that hard work and talent gets recognized in Kpop. There’s no denying the vocal talents of 2AM and the proof is in the pudding. Check out their newest sad love puddings. Love their ballads, but would like to see them diversify more like they did with “I Did Wrong.” (1991kryskpop)
Trying to Trap within a Trap
SNSD‘s Yuri was the special guest on Running Man and to welcome her the cast punk’d her during one of the games which led her to tears. The highlight of the show, of course, was the race between the two teams to find the hidden clues. In this week’s episode Haha tries to pull a fast one on Kim Jong-kook, but almost gets caught in his own trap. Haha somehow gets away and then it’s Song Ji-hyo vs. Lee Kwang-su which is just too funny. I thought Ji-hyo was finally in for it when she ran smack into Jong-kook, but even Jong-kook turned to mush and let her go.
Hwang Bo Rulez
I’m such a Hwang Bo fan girl, but you know what she TOTALLY deserves it. Her new song and MV “I’m Still Pretty” is exquisite. Here’s the MV for your viewing pleasure again, but with English subtitles courtesy of moleqestella and hwangbo-angel.
I love that Hwang Bo is on the new variety show Midnight Idol, it’s pretty funny. I don’t know where I was that I missed this in last week’s episode, but if you love Hwang Bo you gotta check it out.
And, we’re not done yet. You counted 5 Things, well I counted 4 because SKKS is a GIVEN (my article, my rules). So last, but not least…
Khuntoria, a drive thru, and a car wash
On We Got Married, Nichkhun takes Victoria out to the seashore with his spankin’ new drivers’ license and a slick ride. The couple stop by a McD’s drive-thru for some grindage on the way, how cute are they with Vic feeding Khun fries.
After filling up with gas, Khun decides to wash the car also for what I think is Vic’s first car wash.
Honorable mention goes to the duet by Big Mama‘s Lee Young-hyun and the BEGs’ Jea on Yoo Hee-yeol’s Sketchbook.
Those were the top 5 Things I LOVED in Kpop This Week (last week, smash week), were they yours?
