Someone please call 911
Tell them I just been shot down
and the bullet’s, in my heart~

Coming back in the Korean sense of the word, that is~ Mamamoo’s released 3 songs [sub-unit songs Dab Dab and Angel, as well as New York], and they’re back again with the release of a proper EP/Mini, despite having released their first full length this past February.

And despite the fact that everyone was worried about the red sequin gochujang dresses, having Solar to tell us to love the gochchujang in her most recent solo VApp,to later flip tables over when Moonbyul (and Hwasa) slayed us all with their tuxes.

Now RBW is telling us that their Decalcomanie comeback might have a Bond Girl 007-related theme?

Everyone’s dead. Everyone.

And the girls did another crazy VApp where Whee-In is wearing crocs and playing with a stuffed panda, Moonbyul plays with Solar’s new braid and turns her into a propeller, and Hwasa tickles Solar to release her dolphin seal laugh.

Dead, I tell you.

I am obviously not a true Mamamoo fan, because I wasn’t aware of this performance until today. I’ve reached a point in my fandom life where a Mamamoo-related site is one of my top visited websites. I visit it three or four times a day, at least. LOL I’m shameful.

I’m also saving money for a YesAsia purchase of their Moosical DVD and/or their upcoming album/mini, and possibly other stuff- I mean, have you seen The Handmaiden? LOL

Apparently, BiBi now has an official Facebook page (finally!). And it turns out that I’ve missed a couple of photoshoots, since BiBi has been promoting the release of Cold War 2, one of them a shoot by an unknown photographer for the July issue of Harper’s Bazaar China, featuring this gorgeous dual cover.

I think certain someones -who work for Shiseido- could be out of a job xD

There’s a great (though rather longish) commercial titled The Secret of High School Girls (メーク女子高生のヒミツ) that pretty much shows how good Shiseido makeup can be- or, in this case, I think you have to give props to the makeup artists, no?

Great concept.

Apparently the CM shoot took 7hrs., and it’s a one-shot take, so big props to the makeup and hair team [Tadashi Harada (原田忠), Yoshiko Jinguji (神宮司芳子), Yumiko Kamada (鎌田由美子), Hirofumi Kera (計良宏文), Etsu Nishijima (西島悦), Miyako Okamoto (岡元美也子), Noriko Okubo (大久保紀子), Setsuko Suzuki (鈴木節子)], who had to work on still-shooting mode.

Here’s a short Making Of.

*snort* I did confuse Shruti thinking it was lil’ sister Akshara for a moment there. They don’t look alike, though, just a pure brain fart. Anyway, big sis Haasan stopped by this year’s GQ Best Dressed party wearing… not a femme suit! LOL It’s not as badass as, let’s say, Sammi Cheng in Cannes… but it calls your attention in between all the dresses. Coat needs a little tailoring, a sharper collar, and a tighter tie knot.

It’s really lil sis Akshara who can rock the cool look. I was over the moon with her hair in Shamitabh. And I’m not the only one. Whoever pull off the look in the film, brilliant. She does look a lot like Kamal Haasan, though. She’s got the perennial sad look in her eyes, and she’s got funky ears! She had sass, though. It can be promising.
