Video: Kim Bada - Moonage Dream

Kim Bada is back! He's been releasing teasers of this video all week and I've been anxious to see what he's come up with.


YB Official US Debut!

It's finally the day! February 18th, 2014. The day that YB debuted in the United States. I'm very happy for the band. This is something that they've been working towards for a long time, and it's a new milestone for Korean rock music. As far as I'm aware, it's the first time any Korean band has released a single here in the States and readied to enter the market as a mainstream artist.

Korean Music Awards 2014 - Nominees Part 1



It's award season again - and not just here in the United States. It's actually time for MY favorite award ceremony of the year the Korean Music Awards! Why do I like them so much? Well, for one, it's Korean music, but the main reason is because the Korean Music Awards are handed out based on a panel of industry judges NOT based on fan votes or popularity. Plus, a lot of my favorite Korean bands make the list too, and I love seeing them recognized. But anyway, on to the nominees!
