KPop - aka Only Scott Cares - aka Not as Good as Metal


This was unexpectedly over 9000.

Also, the company behind BTS (BigHit) has only ever had one group, which is BTS. They announced they are making another group with 5 dudes. Will it become BTS2?



The youtube algoritm gods (who I so rarely listen to) showed me this.

It’s clearly ancient as I only found it after like 1.5m views. Looks to me like a dojo enjoys kpop and performative martial arts and it also looks like I enjoy kpop and performative partial arts.

Note: A love shot is a thing in Korean drinking culture. You basically wrap your drinking arms around each other.




Special Holiday stages on Music Bank this week.

Also, I’m late to the party on this Yubin comeback.

Get ready because there are going to be a lot of special stages coming from award shows and end of year celebration shows.


A lot of things have gone down. All the new year specials with all their crazy stages. New songs from Chungha, LUNA, and APINK. New Japanese song from Red Velvet. A new group coming from BTS company. Jessi signed with PSY’s company that he formed after leaving YG. BLACKPINK is going on an NA tour with no dates announced yet. Red Velvet is selling their NA tour merch online.

Most interesting of all, though, is that MTV is putting out this documentary about Tiffany, Amber, and Jay Park. They all left the US to become KPop stars, and have now all pretty much come back home. Although I guess f(x) technically still exists, so Amber could go back, but that is a very unlikely dream.


As I said, BigHit, the company that “owns” BTS is creating their second ever group. So far they are batting 1.000. Here’s the announcement.

The group is called TXT. That name is corny as hell. It stands for “Tomorrow X Together” but I don’t think that will matter at all. BTS is corny as hell also. It stands for Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to bulletproof boy scouts. The leader of BTS was named Rap Monster. They changed the name to “Beyond the Scene” at least for the English speaking world, and Rap Monster changed his name to RM. I’ll never accept those name changes though. Gonna keep using my Phoenix web browser and Tappan Zee Bridge. The point is that BTS is even cornier than TXT.


Dat dance.


Does this count?


Sure, so does this:


That’s what I’m talking about!


Anyone watch Sappy? Any thoughts?


It’s catchy and good, but not incredible. I like their first Japanese release, #CookieJar better. Probably because cookies.
