Jiyeon and Hyosung Showcase Their Epic Hotness In New Spreads, Stan For Kahi and More

Jiyeon Hyosung The Korean entertainment industry has come to a halt since the tragic ferry disaster, and all the comebacks and solo debuts I was looking forward to have understandably been pushed back. That means that the scheduled promotional plans for countless K-pop artists have gone to hell, and over the past week Hyosung, Jiyeon, and G.NA have all had sexy photoshoots that were supposed to coincide with their respective comebacks released through various magazines.

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.

SECRET’s Song Ji Eun Slays Her Second Solo Project, ‘Hope Torture’

Song Ji Eun False Hope SECRET's Song Ji Eun made a surprisingly successful solo debut back in 2011 with Bang Yongguk-assisted "Going Crazy." The brooding "Love The Way You Lie" knock-off was just supposed to serve as some reassurance to the fans that SECRET hadn't completely abandoned their edgier style following the success of the sugary "Shy Boy," but it unexpectedly topped the singles chart and TS Entertainment ended up extending Ji Eun's solo promotions to keep up with its popularity.

Considering how well "Going Crazy" did, it was odd that TS didn't actively continue Ji Eun's solo career like Cube does with HyunA, but I guess between SECRET's local activities and their ill-fated attempt to crack Japan, there was simply no time. After more than two years, Ji Eun finally returned as a soloist earlier this week with the release of a 3-track single album, Hope Torture (or "False Hope").
