You can get Smashburgers less than well done?

There's a Five Guy's and a Mooyah between me and a Smashburger.

All places I'll go if you're buying. If I want a burger for myself I'll find a reason to be passing an In-N-Out. That place freaks out my inner MBA with how simple and cheap they do things.

OK, if there's any thread where folks are going to have the answer it's this one.

There was a thread late this past winter or in early spring where someone linked to the video for the song that had knocked Psy off the #1 place on the pop charts or whatever. I thought the song was titled "Hello Hello" and the video featured a SMOKING hot guy with long hair wearing leather pants (toward the end, it took most of the song to get to that point)

my stupid ass didn't bookmark it. And now i can't find it.
I've searched Fark for the original thread where someone linked to the video, i've googled, I cannot for the life of me find this thing.

Anyone remember that thread?

Isn't K-Pop really big basically everywhere but America? I seem to recall reading that when Gagnam Style references were popping up in every thread.

That isn't enough info to go on.  Try answering a few of these questions to help narrow it down.  1)  Was this a single performer or a group 2)  rough age?  3)  Was it actual Kpop like Shinee's Juliette or was it more like R & B like Rain Bi?  4) Was there an overall theme to the Music video such as death, love, anger, loneliness so on?

Some more info would be helpful.

I thought that it was reversed such that after someone in Jpop is not longer as Kawaii as they were initially they depart into the wild and then do porn.

Single male performer. Late 20's/early 30's. The plot for the video was a young boy gets off a schoolbus, meets a young girl moving into the house down the street with her family, she says "hello" and he's smitten.

Then we get fast-forwarded to adulthood where he's sort of a low-paid loser, and the girl from down the street now lives in the apartment building next door. And then his apartment sort of transforms, as does the performer, into a rock star with no shirt and leather pants.

It was actual pop/rock. not R&B.

Looking around a little bit and trying to guess names that would fit didn't narrow it down but I would might suggest visiting a kpop forum and asking there.  They will probably be of greater assistance.

The author of the article knows fark all about the music scene in Latin America.

The first thing is that latin americans will go to any concert at all, Air Supply still sells sold out shows on South America.

I was in Colombia two weeks ago and did not hear any K-pop, just a shiatload of Macklemore and Pitbull. And of course the usual salsa, bachata, meringue, and vallenato.

There are plenty of upbeat latin songs.

They don't have Smashburger in my town. We just recently got 5 Guys. I like them both. Easy to please and all that.

As someone who lives in the capital of Guatemala, I can tell you that while American pop like Justin Timberlake and Macklemore is the most popular foreign music, K-Pop is unfortunately gaining popularity, especially among the wannabe hipster demographic slowly popping up in the big cities.

It says something about the universal nature of pop music that Korean and Japanese music is popular even in Guatemala. I have no idea why, but it is...

(On a semi-unrelated note, Aerosmith is coming around here in October. Have their shows ever been worth going to, and would they still be?)

I was just in Colombia and was surprised by the latino hipsters.

Areosmith was worth going to see in the 1980s...

This song is in Japanese, sung by a Korean group with an English name, and was written by a Swede.
