  • Kim Jong Kook reveals the whereabouts of former Turbo member Mikey

    May 12, 2013 @ 6:36 pm

    Many people know Kim Jong Kook for his amazing singing voice and his 'Commander' role on 'Running Man'. However, what's been going on with his one-time Turbo partner, Mikey? During a recent appearance on jTBC's 'Hidden Singer', Kim Jong Kook reported on what his erstwhile bandmate has been up to these days. "Mikey is living in America," he related. "He's transformed from a rapper into an insurance man." "Apparently, he's doing very well

  • Way Back Wednesday: Happy New Year

    January 2, 2013 @ 7:19 pm

    Well, it's 2013 and alien spaceships didn't emerge from mountains, freak natural disasters haven't submerged the planet in water, and while you might consider Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's pregnancy as a sign of the apocalypse, for the most part, 2013 is starting off on the right foot. Unfortunately many of us are back at work after a few days off but what better way to pass the time then by revisiting some old K-pop classics? In the spi

  • Way Back Wednesday: Holiday Cheer

    December 19, 2012 @ 6:35 pm

    For my money, there is really no better time of year than the holiday season. Everything about it from the cold air, football games, Christmas decorations, and the great food with friends and family make it my favorite time of the year. It's especially important this year as this past week we were reminded of the importance of the ones we love and never to take them for granted. I know I will certainly give my young nieces and nephews an extr

  • Way Back Wednesday: After Sandy

    November 7, 2012 @ 7:07 pm

    For anyone looking for this column last week, you'll notice that it was never posted. Not only was it Halloween but last week Mother Nature once again asserted her dominion over man as Hurricane Sandy trekked across the oceans, making its presence known in at least 24 states along the East Coast of the U.S. including Puerto Rico and also the countries of Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, the Bahamas, and Canada. Here in New York City, w

  • Way Back Wednesday: The Best Dances (1993-1996)

    October 3, 2012 @ 6:38 pm

    If there is a defining quality to the genre of K-pop, for me, it has to be the importance placed on the choreography. K-pop places such an emphasis on the dance that songs can be better defined by its moves rather than by the musical properties. Just look at PSY's "Gangnam Style". Most of America can't understand more than a handful of words in the song but I'll bet that many can identify and probably even perform the horse dance that has tak

  • Way Back Wednesday: The "Other" Songs

    August 22, 2012 @ 6:35 pm

    I started doing a clean-up of my mp3's the other day and began finding all these songs that I haven't listened to in quite some time. I also began to notice that a lot of the songs were from some of the big name old-school groups, but these songs weren't their "big hit" or the usual suspects that everyone remembers. Some were still really good but just didn't get the same hype for whatever reason. Today's Way Back Wednesday is an ode to th

  • Way Back Wednesday: Noraebang Classics

    August 8, 2012 @ 6:15 pm

    If you've read the Way Back Wednesday columns before, you know that I frequently mention my affection for noraebangs and usually call out a song or two that are tried and true favorites for fellow norebang fans. I don't know what it is about those little rooms with the flashing lights, over-reverbed amps, and spit-protector covered microphones, but as often as I've been, it's always just as fun the next time I go. While many of you have proba

  • Way Back Wednesday : Summer Jams

    June 20, 2012 @ 6:17 pm

    There's this one 'Calvin and Hobbes' panel that shows the pair during Calvin's summer vacation. The strip documents the best friends waking up, going outside, climbing trees, playing Calvinball, hitting Susie Derkins with a water balloon, chasing fireflies, and more. But after a full day of playing, before going to bed Calvin laments, "Summer days are supposed to be longer, but they sure seem short to me." Today marks the official start of
