Stop Putting Jared Leto in Movies

Morbius is going to suck.

Sony

There's a big problem with the trailer for Morbius, Sony's upcoming Marvel outing that is definitely not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though it has Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture (please let us keep our license, Disney!).

See if you can spot it.

MORBIUS - Teaser Trailer www.youtube.com

If you answered, "Sampling Beethoven's 'Für Elise' to line up with blue-tinted action shots is the absolute lowest effort, brain-dead attempt to signify 'gothic vampire movie' in the entire history of movie trailers," you're correct, but that's still not the biggest problem with Morbius. No, the biggest problem is that Morbius is played by Jared Leto.

SM Entertainment's new girl group Red Velvet are already off to a huge start, with their debut single "Happiness" debuting at an impressive No. 9 on this week's Gaon chart.

To put this into perspective, SM Entertainment's last new group, EXO, only reached No. 86 with their first single, "History." Outside of SM, Red Velvet is actually the highest-charting rookie group of 2014 so far.

Elsewhere on the chart, SISTAR's "Touch My Body" slips to second place after a 2-week reign at the top to make way for San E's "Body Language," which rockets in at No. 1.

Block B's "Her" is down to No. 3, followed by HyunA's "Red" at No. 4, and Girl's Day's "Darling" which rounds out the top five at No. 5.

Park Boram debuts at No. 11 with "Beautiful," but she should rise even higher next week judging by her current performance on real-time digital charts like Melon.

On the other hand, Ladies' Code's "Kiss Kiss" debuts at No. 59, but unlike Park Boram's song, it probably won't climb any higher next week; as of this posting, it's already almost out of Melon's top 100. This will actually mark the first real flop for the group, who have been on a winning streak since launching last year with "Bad Girl."

A few spots down is Brown Eyed Girls' "Hush" at No. 62, followed by Hwayobi's "Closer" at No. 66.

Check out this week's new K-pop hits, below.

No. 1. San E - Body Language

No. 9. Red Velvet - Happiness

No. 11. Park Boram - Beautiful

No. 59. Ladies' Code - Kiss Kiss

No. 62. Brown Eyed Girls - Hush
