Superheroes. Space vampires. Love-obsessed doppelgangers. Industrious, real-life rookie idols who don’t let more than two moments pass without releasing something new. Tying together the roles that the guys of VIXX have played since their debut 18 months ago is a common thread: sleeplessness! So, it’s no surprise that they wrap up a jam-packed 2013 not with a vacation (or even a nap), but with one last release—their biggest yet.
Voodoo is their first full-length album, heavy with the weight of a hulking 15 tracks and the group’s lofty aspirations. With this outing, it’s clear that the Jellyfish Entertainment outfit seeks to define a signature sound and declare itself ready to take its place amongst K-pop’s top flight.
A mélange of the familiar and the new, the fun, the romantic, and the macabre; some of the ten original tracks on the album call upon tried-and-tested formulas from VIXX’s past hits, while others experiment with current pop modes that play to the individual members’ strengths—especially Ken’s skillful, dulcet R&B vocals

EXO has been through some big wins and some losses this week. First, they were at the MelOn Music Awards, and won themselves recognition for being one of the most recognized and popular groups in Korea as of late.
The EMA's has been a topic of discussion for a while. The conclusion for the fanwars has finally come to a hault when EXO lost not to Justin Bieber or One Direction, but to a Chinese female solo singer Chris Lee. Though the loss has been made clear, EXO was more than accepting of the entire ordeal, and still seem to be one of the most popular boybands existing as of the moment.
Lots happened during the awards. Apart from the outstanding performance by the group (and the fact that they are just getting better and better each day, I mean, come on), there was also a drama introduction to their performances that I think is safe to say very heavily inspired by the movie Twilight
Italian Vogue contributor, Francesco Spampinato recently marveled at Big Bang member G-Dragon‘s “media power” through Twitter after receiving a huge response to his cover story on G-Dragon, where he praised G-Dragon for “his almost other-worldly charisma” that made him “the perfect pop star for the global society of the post-digital era.” He also went on to detail briefly G-Dragon’s journey as an artist from listening to the Wu-Tang Clan to having an influential hand in the evolution of K-Pop as it “metabolizes Western youth subcultures and borrows elements and symbols of rock-n-roll, punk, Goth, club culture and hip-hop.” You can read the rest of Spampinato’s cover story here on Italian Vogue’s website.
He tweeted on November 15, “I’m impressed by G-Dragon’s media power
