Music & Lyrics: Sexism, Entitlement and the Devil Written by Morgan On August 7, 2015

It was recently brought up in the comment section of our “Super Junior’s Devil” MV review that there could be possible sexist connotations to the song’s ‘devil’ metaphor.

Music & Lyrics: Is There a Line Between Love and Hate? Written by Morgan On June 10, 2015

We all probably know how volatile relationships are; no relationship is completely perfect – sort of like my relationship with K-pop. Yet, a majority of songs portray one side of a relationship: either ‘I love you’ or ‘I hate you’. But, what about blending those two together?

Music & Lyrics: The Goods On Bad Boys Written by Lo On May 14, 2015

Music & Lyrics: Talk About Tonight Written by Lo On February 12, 2015

William Shakespeare once wrote, “One man in his time plays many parts.” People change who they are depending on what surrounds them. The funny thing is that it’s not just people that change roles; words do as well.
