I'm Actually Excited for The Unit's Girl Group


I never watched the show, mainly due to a lack of time due to studying and work, and also used my free time to watch stuff I was more interested in, but in large part was that there were way too many fucking idols. I follow several Yebin fan accounts on Twitter, because of course Yebin is the most adorable idol of the current generation, even withstanding her short stint as a blonde-haired dyke.

ESCAPE FROM SM ISLAND: How He Do It??

For years, we've all assumed that crossing the SM Entertainment gang was almost practically a career death knell. Almost NO ONE left SM and lived to tell the tale. H.O.T. left SM in 2001 due to a contract dispute and where are they now? Donezo, forced to disband since then. JYJ (aka Jaejoong/Chuck, Yoochun, and Junsu) left in 2009 due to a contract dispute, blacklisted ever since. Hangeng left Super Junior in 2009, hasn't done shit since. Jessica left SNSD in 2014, and while she's pretty much her own woman now with BLANC & ECLARE, she may or may not be blacklisted from performing on the major music shows. 

So how is it that Kris Wu managed to escape in 2014 and reach even greater heights than he did with EXO? 

NOTE: Luhan definitely managed to escape too but since he's mostly big in China only (but he's HUGE in China, don't get me wrong), he only gets this small honorable mention.

Red Velvet - Bad Boy



Red Velvet came back with "Bad Boy" a couple of weeks ago, and boy was it a pleasant surprise. Every time I had wanted to write an article about this song, I went to r/kpopfap instead and lookup up gifs from the live performances. This is definitely Red Velvet's most aesthetically pleasing concept yet.

The Thirsty Koreaboo Guide to the 2018 Winter Olympics

As you all may or may not know, the 2018 Winter Olympics are being held at Pyeongchang, South Korea or the home of our favorite people in the whole wide world. Of course, as diehard fans of Korean pop culture, we should all feel the distinct pride and honor of supporting our favorite athletes compete for gold and glory. However, the only Koreans we normally care about are the hunky namjas or hot yeoljas that perform on the stage, not the ice/snow/mountains. Who cares about figure skating or cross-country skiing outside of the every-4-year circlejerk Olympics? Does you even know anyone not-named-Kim-Yuna that is a winter Olympian?

That's why we at AKF have thoughtfully prepared a dossier to who's who at the Olympics for you to start stanning!

DISCLAIMER: Are any of these people going to win anything? Maybe not, with one exception.
Do you care? Not really.

The Real Scandal Surrounding Sunmi's "Heroine"



Sunmi's "Heroine" came out over a week ago and there have been a million articles about the so-called plagiarism from some song in the West. I wouldn't know, as I have never listened to the other song (and have no plans to), and I don't know shit about music, so I wouldn't know if it was plagiarized or not. However, that is not the real scandal that every news outlet has ignored.
