Crappy Korean Media Publishes Crappy Girl Group Ranking, So I Made a Way Better One

Sports Chosun Girl Group Ranking Korea is obsessed with random rankings, surveys, and polls. Most of it's just inane shit that isn't worth reading ("So-and-so voted the celebrity people most likely want to read a bedtime story to"), but I get a kick out of popularity rankings. The downside is that most of them are usually biased or uninformed, like the new 2014 Girl Group Popularity Ranking that Sports Chosun published today.

T-ara’s Eunjung Dances To Crayon Pop, Crayon Pop Beats The Crap Out Of Dal Shabet, Jewelry, and Chocolat

“Hot & Cold”: Jewelry Finally Releases Another Good Song

Jewelry Hot & Cold Feature Jewelry is a bit of a running joke to me in K-pop. Like the Sugababes, the group has none of its original members left and really should've disbanded years ago (specifically when Seo In Young jumped ship), but for some reason they're still chugging along. In 2011, they shamelessly ripped off SECRET's "Shy Boy" with the embarrassingly bad "Back It Up," and last year, they they made another dud comeback with "Look At Me." I thought that they couldn't get any worse, and I was right, because the group's latest single, "Hot & Cold," is surprisingly good.
