JYP x Hyoyeon x Min x Jo Kwon

Fans of Hyoyeon and Min, who have been friends for a long time, finally get their wish of a collaboration between the two. Unfortunately, it sounds like a piece of a crap Teddy composed. I feel bad for giving this MV a view because it doesn't even deserve a single view.

This has also furthered my conviction that Hyoyeon should never been in a subunit.

YG is Real Hip Hop

Too cool to pay their taxes.

TL;DR They used Bom's drug channels to hide profits and to shift income. See, Bom still had a role to play in YG instead of reminding people every day that it's Halloween.

Some Hot Girls & An Apology

Here's OMG's Binnie really going for it. In semi-related news, this week's Girl Group Wars post is going to be delayed until I'm fully moved. Sorry about that -- things should be back to the normal schedule next week, if everything goes according to plan. More pictures of hot girls to apologize for my lack of dedication are below the cut!

Inkigayo Cockblocks IOI

Inkigayo is cockblocking IOI. Music Core also cockblocks IOI, but that isn't making the news. Why this is making the news is because IOI possibly could have won on Inkigayo, or at the very least been a lot closer. Actually being there gives you more points or something (I don't know, I stopped caring about music show wins in early 2010 when SNSD was promoting "Run Devil Run", Kara was promoting "Lupin" and T-ara was promoting "I Go Crazy Because Of You" at the same time. Good times, and I stopped caring who won because in the end if you were a fan of all three, we were the winners.)

No, I present an alternative theory. In the age of the SJW, I wouldn't be surprised if someone hasn't said it yet. If someone hasn't actually made this claim, I am shocked.
