Grab the Look: Big Bang’s “Fantastic Baby”

Posted: 02 Apr 2012 03:33 AM PDT

This week’s edition of Grab the Look is celebrating Big Bang‘s successful and long awaited comeback. Big Bang is known for their fashion forward, over the top style. Out of their 3 new MVs “Fantastic Baby” is probably the craziest of them all, and with so much going on it’s hard to know where to start and hard to understand how someone can wear a “Fantastic Baby” look without looking insane or in a costume.

Looking past the crazy hair, armor, head to toe printed suits and velveteen captain costumes, there is some great styling in there and pieces we can take home with us. Fantastic Baby reminds us all that fashion can be fun and exciting and not to be afraid of mixing textures with pattern and bold in color. Big Bang has also done a great job in modernizing and pushing urban street style forward.

Skinny all over printed jeans with a solid over-sized graphic tee balances the pattern. Add a classic jacket silhouette such as a motorcycle jacket in a pop color. Putting the pattern on the bottom and bold color on the top, grounded with a solid, creates an overall balanced look. Wearing a slim fitting bottom and jacket, it’s a good idea to wear a looser fitting top to add back to proportion and have the outfit feel more casual and laid back. Finish it off with a few urban touches, like a positive graphic trucker hat, whimsical over-sized pendent necklace and fun chunky shoes.

Big Bang‘s style is definitely not for the feint of heart, but if you’re looking for a style challenge, it’s a great one to try and totally doable. Check out the hot tips below and don’t miss Big Bang‘s great new MV “Fantastic Baby“.

MIB to comeback on the 5th, in collaboration with Tiger JK, T, and Bizzy

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 09:27 PM PDT

With their comeback fast approaching, hip-hop group MIB‘s album collaborators were revealed, raising even more anticipation.

On April 5th, MIB‘s single album “Celebrate” will be released, featuring renowned experts Tiger JK, T (Yoon Mi Rae) and Bizzy.

The superior line-up of Tiger JK, T, and Bizzy, whom any hip-hop artist would dream of collaborating with, not only helped in the song itself, but also offered much advising, from the album’s concept to the planning, contributing to the completeness of the album.

Moreover, since MIB are trainees of the same recording company, their collaboration can be seen as not just a simple company project, but rather as people of the same hip-hop genre exchanging music to produce a joint product. MIB’s upcoming album is anticipated to reveal the combination of MIB’s intense and colorful music with the expertise of Tiger JK, T, and Bizzy.

MIB, the newest group of Jungle Entertainment, the renowned hip-hop company with artists like Tiger JK, T, Leessang, and Bizzy, debuted last year with the album “Most Incredible Busters“. They produced the upcoming single album themselves, attesting to their phenomenal talent. 5Zic, Cream, SIMS, and KangNam, the members of MIB, stirred much attention last year by not following the traditional route of post-debut promotions with each member doing solo activities, but rather with a shocking strategy of releasing a solo song for each member before the debut.

MIB, who has been very active with Mnet‘s reality program ‘MIB’s W Military Academy ‘and  member KangNam’s tvN sitcom ‘21st Century Family,’ as well as other various activities, will comeback on the 5th by releasing “Celebrate” on music sites along with a performance on Mnet’s MCountdown.

On March 31st, the actress wrote on her Twitter, “Hello, everyone. The news articles of me writing a Me2day post are not real. Somebody was impersonating me.

Photo of f(x)’s Sulli uploaded by Heechul becomes a hot topic

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 06:35 PM PDT

f(x)‘s Sulli‘s school uniform photo has become a hot topic among netizens lately.

On April 1st, Super Junior‘s Heechul pulled off an April Fools’ Day prank by switching his profile picture to Sulli and caption that read, “This is f(x)’s Sulli. The real Sulli.

Heechul later impersonated Sulli again, this time by uploading a photo of Sulli and tweeting, “The outfit in this photo is probably our school’s uniform. Can’t remember that well since it’s been a while since I graduated Hehe.”

A few hours later, he wrote another post that read, “I think I'm pretty, but I don't get why other people think so too. Aren’t people like singers the ones that are pretty? There are plenty of girls at my church that are prettier than me, but why do people think I’m the cute and pretty one? I really dislike people that do that. When I tell them my name, they even think my name is pretty… Am I really that pretty?“ Heechul was actually quoting Sulli’s old diary entry which was first revealed on the music talk show, ‘Kim Jung Eun’s Chocolate‘.

Netizens commented, “The two must be very close“, “Sulli is indeed very pretty“, and “She looks like a doll even in school uniform.”
