K-pop is known for it's signature dance moves (just look at PSY), but lately those moves have been getting a whole lot sexier. With girl groups like Girl's Day, AOA, and STELLAR hitting it big thanks to their erotic music videos and provocative performances, female K-pop stars are now constantly trying to one-up one another in the sexy stakes.
The latest lady to give it a shot is Sunmi, former member of the squeaky clean Wonder Girls. The music video for her new single, "Full Moon," doesn't push the envelope quite as far as STELLAR's "Marionette" recently did, but it's far more titillating overall thanks to some seriously sensual choreography.
On the song's addictive a post-chorus (a hypnotic repetition of "eh eh ehs"), Sunmi drops down into a squat and grinds seductively to one side, before flinging her legs open and sliding over to the other side do it again. She then climbs onto an antique sofa, points and crosses her lean legs just to show off how pretty they are, and then flings her legs open again -- dropping her hands to her crotch to preserve some modesty.
Yes, I know it sounds trashy and stripper-ish, but Sunmi actually manages to make it look surprisingly classy thanks to a seductive vampire theme and a tasteful wardrobe. It definitely comes off a lot more elegant than something like Rihanna and Shakira's "Can't Remember To Forget You," which was all plotless wall humping and faux-lesbo action.

Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
25 years ago, pop stars and rappers were were expected to stay in their respective lanes. But Mariah Carey proved that hip-hop and pop were a match made in heaven—changing popular music as we know it.
Hip-Hop is pop—not in sound, but rather in terms of influence and authority.
Certainly pure pop—pasteurized and whipped into its ultimate peak in the early 2010s—is still breathing, though despite its name, the genre's reign as the chieftain of popular music has ended.
Drake and Bad Bunny are as much of pop stars in 2020 as Carly Rae Jepsen and Kesha were in 2012. Spotify reports that, at this very moment, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP" is the most-streamed song in the United States. Immediately following that is trap-pop cut "Mood," a TikTok-famous summer bop by 24kGoldn and Iann Dior, two of many rising zoomer rappers who have embraced Hip-Hop's guidance in most melodic forms, like trap-pop, emo rap, alternative hip-hop, and pop-rap. And if that's not enough to give Hip-Hop a throne, Nielsen Music has confirmed that eight of the top 10 artists of 2020 so far are, of course, rappers.
