The return of my fourth favourite girl group SECRET is a cause for celebration, but it's also a time for facepalming and "FML" groaning. Now that they're back to their sexy style, all Western K-pop fans take it as an opportunity to put down the group's cutsie hits. (Because according to Western K-pop fans, the only acceptable concept is either fierce of porno, as they're so used to seeing their pop stars hyper-sexualized before they're even legal that they can't accept any possible deviation from that.) The same thing happens to poor sweet A Pink, and it used to happen to Girls' Generation before "The Boys" came along.
I'm always obsessed with SECRET because they're my fourth favourite K-pop girl group after Brown Eyed Girls, T-ara, and Girls' Generation, but I've been, like, REALLY obsessed with them this past fortnight. Aside from my usual fifty plays of "I Do I Do" per day, I've been combing through endless photos and videos of my wife Hyosung and watching "Good-night Kiss" performances on repeat, so a fresh SECRET fix was sorely needed.
