In Search of the Best Drops, Hooks, and Choruses in Alternative Idol

It takes a village to be an alternative idol fan, and I mean that in all sincerity. There are simply too many idol units, idols, music releases, MV drops, tours, graduations, disbandments, reboots, retirements and returns to keep up with the massive amount of activity all on your lonesome. It is why there is a whole team behind the running of Homicidols, and it is also the primary reason for the existence of the Homicidols Discord server.

Your Homicidols Weekender #365

Greetings from London on this landmark edition of The Weekender! As we hit this milestone edition #365, Homicidols has now published so many Weekenders that you could read a different one each day for a full year. I’m celebrating with a dinner consisting of my very first meat bun ever (chicken curry) followed my first taste of mince pies for dessert courtesy of our very own Kerrie. I actually spent the day wandering around London with a multi-national gang of OOMFS including Team Homicidols’ Cal and Kerrie.  In another landmark, this week saw the very first time three whole members of Team were together in the same place at the same time. We are not typically allowed to be in such close proximity for reasons to do with maintaining the line of succession, but special dispensation was received due to the OTHER landmark event taking place this week: the Western debut of ASP, ExWHYz, and AiNA THE END at WACK in the UK.

We Interview Idols: X!DENT

As hard as it might be to believe, it’s already been more than two years since the last time Homicidols caught up with X!DENT for a chat, during which time they’ve progressed from exciting new hopefuls to becoming a regular fixture of the Korean live idol scene.

Two years is a long time in idol music, so what have they been up to in the interim? Well, quite a lot as it happens, and who better to fill you in on that than the girls themselves.

A Serious Essay About Harassment, Cultural Mixing and Racism

Well, we’ve all been painfully online over the past few days. We know the situation about the overseas idol group being harassed and we’ve all seen take after take after take. We’re all tired but seemingly, the discussion just isn’t stopping. In the hateful maelstrom of internet give and takes, sometimes things only last a day but more fuel keeps being added to the fire, with a recent YouTube reaction channel inviting more people to belittle them after being doxxed.

TIF Hits Seoul

In news I am still coming to terms with even as I type this, The Korean live idol scene recently hit another major milestone with the news that TIF will be hosting their first live event in Seoul, with a roster almost evenly split between local talent and some choice premium imports that anyone reading this site may well already know.

Your Homicdols Weekender #331

Hey gang. This will be a truncated version of the Weekender as I am out traveling with family far from Casa de Homicidols. It is also a historic Weekender as it is the first ever composed entirely on mobile. However, after publishing a Saturday digest of alt-idol happenings for 330 consecutive weekends, I feel something of an obligation to ensure that this streak remains unbroken (at least until we hit issue #444 at which point, I believe, Hanako-San murders me in the toilet). So, while my family sleeps in, I will tap out as much as I remember of what happened this week in idol.
