That Crayon Pop reign just won’t let up! After taking Korea by storm with a string of non-charting flop hits, Crayon Pop have now officially conquered the Japanese market, selling out tickets to their Japanese mini-concert in a mere hour.
The general consensus amongst most K-poppers is that Girls’ Generation‘s Japanese albums trump their Korean ones.

It’s only been a few months, but it feels like ten phucking years since Perfume released a new single.

Bonkers Harajuku princess Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is back with another one of her wonderfully weird singles. The latest, titled “Fashion Monster”, sees the style icon dabbling in a little J-Rock for the first time ever.
