YG Men rank high on LA WEEKLY’s “TOP 10 Sexiest Men in K-POP” List!
PSY
T.O.P (BIGBANG)
Siwon (Super Junior)
Jay Park
Rain
Tablo (EPIK HIGH)
Jaejoong (JYJ)
Taeyang (BIGBANG)
Minho (SHINee)
Se7en
#1 PSY - No, seriously! Within the image-obsessed K-pop landscape, there doesn’t seem to be much room for anyone who doesn’t embody the physical ideal. Armed with an acerbic wit and a knack for infectious anthems, the veteran hip-hopper proves you don’t need to be a hottie with a body to have real swagger. He’s a talented underdog who’s down to have fun, and you can’t beat that. Oppa Gangam style!
#2 T.O.P - Ladies love this dashing and understatedly cool rapper. As a kid, T.O.P. found refuge in the underground rap scene and was later deemed too chubby for K-pop. But he made it, and nowadays it often looks like he’s trying not to crack up during his group’s cheesier dance numbers. Nonetheless, he has a commanding stage presence (you can’t miss his baritone voice) and has already launched a successful acting career. K-pop, he’s too cool for you.
#6 TABLO - When rumors stirred that Tablo faked his Stanford degrees (he hadn’t), his career tanked, and he and his then-pregnant wife received death threats. It was all a real shame because he’s a cute, whip-smart talent that helped pave the way for hip-hop in South Korea. Fortunately, after years in hiatus, Tablo recently made a comeback.
#8 TAEYANG - Taeyang isn’t allowed to keep his shirt on longer than 30 minutes at a time, apparently. Perhaps that’s part of the reason his solo music has been popular in the U.S. and Canada as well. Owing in part to the soulful single “Wedding Dress,” Taeyang instantly solidified himself as the sensitive bad boy crooning his way out of heartbreak. You can think of him as the Justin Timberlake of the group Big Bang.
#10 SE7EN - Se7en is a veteran of one of the early “Korean waves” that took East Asia by storm. Speculating that he could cross over, his management sent him to the U.S. to record asingle with Lil Kim, but it flopped. He later reclaimed his place as a heartthrob in Korea and Japan and is one of the more well-known K-pop acts today. His career is currently on hold again, due to military conscription. On his first day of active duty, his record label YG released his single “Thank U.” Come home safe, Private Se7en.

Do I look at the pedi pleasure? Or the Maserati? Or the man behind the wheel—in all likelihood a podiatrist flaunting his money and his status. I’m so dizzy from circular reasoning that I can’t manage to snub my nose at this. Well played, I toe this line.   

My friend Margot and I have a bit of a vanity plate obsession. We have so many photos that I figured it was time to document this shiz forreals. Introducing: SIVUPL8Please follow us if you’re inclined to 7-character limited word play and ridiculous displays of ego and humor.  Plates, if you please!

Last night, I dreamt of visiting a museum that housed a mini Library of Babel: a spiraling conundrum of books exactly one mile high and comprised only of Abraham Lincoln literature. And now that I look at it, not unalike the staircase in this photo. All the books were rebound with alumnium covers, which were plated and bolted like the hull of an airship. The covers featured replications of the original book art/designs. Why? I’m not really sure, and to question the validity of a facet of a dream seems to be a fruitless exercise, but this may just be attributed to my aesthetic tastes.
Anyhow. Just now, I came across this NPR article describing an Abraham Lincoln book tower, and you can bet the first realization I had was not that it’s President’s Day today (I always forget, since I always work on this day — yes, only corporate reserved national holidays are relevant to me): it was that both Abe and I were born in Springfield, IL. This connection runs deep. Apparently and disturbingly. Thanks for the reminder, ol’ mutton chop. Happy President’s Day to you, and please don’t hurt me.

Open Letters: AN OPEN LETTER TO BOBA TEA
by Annie Stamell

I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt. I’m sure you know the country of origin is Taiwan, and you know this so well that you can genuinely reduce it to an accurate description of “somewhere foreign and interesting but also adorable like Japan or Audrey Tatou.” Wow.
Foreign! Interesting! Japaneezy! Sooooo cute! I’m pretty sure this was not a case of lazy writing, so I don’t have to say, “Do your research!” Yay!
But in all seriousness, what kind of question is this? Why have hipsters adopted boba? I’m not going to invest too much brain power on this, but consider the “hipster” community, especially in Los Angeles, of which both this blog posting and this response originate: proximity to various cultures. I’m not about to reduce my hometown into any particular subculture (I mean, seriously — let me count the ways?), but alternative/fringe communities do tend to have a curiosity for other cultures, and what better way to learn and appreciate than through food? That itself is a tenuous argument because beyond that, Los Angeles is a delicious multi-cultural stew, and to ask why hipsters have adopted a foreign drink is really to ask why LA has adopted it at all.
And I hesitate to even use “foreign” without the quotation marks: the Taiwanese (and greater Chinese) community has thrived here in LA for decades. It’s an undoubtable cornerstone of Angelino culture, and to refer to boba as a mystic other is really troublesome. How many people would laugh if someone wondered why hipsters had adopted the taco, some creation from a foreign and interesting Latino place? I’m 100% sure this lady has no intention of being offensive or ignorant, but dude, something needs to be said. Correct it. Anyway, there is no correlation between hipsters and boba. Enough said. 
Also, as an ardent agent against the MPDG (manic pixie dream girl), I have to say, give Hello Giggles some credit. There are the obvious MPDG allusions to be made here about HG, but it’s such a well-written outlet — it’s a collective of female voices that prove there is much more than meets the eye image. Dropping tropes like “Audrey Tatou,” hipsters and nondescript adorable Asian countries is so easy; I think HG has higher standards than this. Smart is cute, ignorant is not.
