Kpop: VIXX - Shangri-La (도원경)

VIXX is back and again they deliver on the drama in their video - which has ever been their signum. I am hard presssed to remember when I last saw such a aesthetically pleasing video. It reminds me somewhat of Sistar's "I like That" last year with its Chinese inspirations, but this looks better. Musically they have done better, but this time it doesn't matter as this is a celebration of the korean excellence when making the whole package. Enjoy it, because in one sense the kpop wonder as we know it is already fading (or evolving depending on how you see it).

Kpop: PSY - New Face & I Luv It

The first above and two first below is from "I Luv It", the rest from "New Face"

PSY will ofc never top his super hit "Gangnam Style" from back in 2012 (getting close to 3 billion views!), but he still pushes out videos that gets 10s of millions of views. The two new releases from the new album "4x2=8" is "I Luv It" & "New Face". I think they don't quite come up to "Daddy" and "Napal Baji" from the last album, but they aren't bad and the videos are still very fun to watch. And if you wonder, it is Son Naeun from A Pink and the "Pineapple Pen" guy of viral video fame, Pikotaro.
