  • 11 Female idols who can pull off 'no-pants' look

    October 20, 2014 @ 6:47 pm

    "Ha-yi sil-jong," or the 'no-pants' fashion, can be literally defined as "missing bottoms," which kinda sounds like a crazy epidemic. And it might as well be one because many of our favorite female idols will, at one point in their idol career, go through a phase of wearing something so short on the bottom and wearing a shirt that covers the bottom, looking pants-less. But it's really not as bad as it seems!

  • 11 amazing yet hilarious children acts from North Korea

    October 17, 2014 @ 5:23 pm

    Elementary school talent shows. From my experience here in the States, they're a-bore-able. Adorable because they feature children showing off their talent; boring because they feature children showing off their talent. You can't really expect much from these shows because the performers haven't even lived long enough to have much to show!
