When K-pop clashes with Sci-fi, singing about PMS suddenly becomes a trendy thing【Video】

PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) is something many women and men are familiar with. Women bear the brunt of it on a monthly basis, while some men are indirect victims due to the mood swings of the “PMS-ing” females around them.

I doubt anyone would disagree that PMS is in no way enjoyable, but for once, the monstrosity that messes up our lives on a regular basis is starting to look interesting as Korean pop idol Lizzy teams up with comedian Park Myeong-Su to sing about it. Check out the music video after the break!

R.I.P. Ginji – Japan’s bartending hamster makes us smile one last time with his brave last words

If you’re a fan of hamsters or just cuteness in general, you might remember a few months ago when talked about Ginji, the adorable little hamster with an adorable little izakaya (Japanese-style pub). But while we all took a moment (or much longer, if we’re being honest) to ooh and awe over Ginji, today we’re instead having a moment of silence, as the heartwarming hamster has passed away.

Help! My dad turned into a cat!

Yet another feline made rounds on Japanese internet when his owner uploaded a picture of him behaving like a worn-out middle-aged man at home, comfortably lazing on the sofa while watching the TV. He sure resembles the stereotypical image we have of exhausted oji-san (middle aged man) office workers who come home from work and end up on the couch in a slump!

Taking a page from Japan, Meow Parlour, KittyKind team up for NYC’s first cat cafe

Cat lovers in New York City have rejoiced since mid-December, when Meow Parlour, the city’s first cat cafe, opened its doors.

For the uninitiated, lets explain what a cat cafe is. It’s not a place where you take your own cat to hang out and have coffee. It’s not a restaurant that has cats on the menu. It is a place where you can enjoy the companionship of cats while sipping on coffee and munching on a cat-shaped macaron.

Cats in a can (-shaped scratching station) are adorable

Japan loves its pets, and while the size of Japanese homes means the family cat or dog might not have as much space as it would in the U.S., doting owners here are perfectly happy to provide creature comforts for their creatures. Having less space in the house can make putting in a full-size scratching post for your kitty kid of tricky, though, especially if you’d like to occasionally move it out of the way for some extra floor space.

Thankfully, what these compact alternatives give up in size they make up for in cuteness, with a ring-shaped design decorated like the label of one of Japan’s most popular brands of cat food.

US kids react to breakfasts from other countries, and it’s equal parts cute and hilarious 【Video】

One of the best parts of traveling to other countries are all the new and exciting (and sometimes even gag-inducing) food experiences that come with it. While some may turn up their nose at something like fermented cabbage, fish eggs, or animal innards – something which is strange and exotic to one culture but a completely normal food to another – these likes and dislikes really have little to do with personal tastes, and everything to do with upbringing.

I believe that it is very important for kids to be introduced to many different cultures from a young age, to help give them a better understanding of and respect for the world around them, and what better way to do that than by introducing foods from other countries? That is what the people over at YouTube channel Cut Video did, when they created their video “American Kids Try Breakfasts From Around the World”.

As we all know, kids can tend to be picky eaters, so introducing them to unknown foods is sure to bring a few sour faces, as you can see in the video after the jump!

We try out the scariest fashion game on the app store

We heard that there is a particularly alarming girls’ fashion mobile game lurking in the app store, so in the spirit of RocketNews24, we decided that we had to try it out for ourselves. The game in question is Mary&Ange II, an updated version of, well Mary&Ange, a simple dress-up game for iOS and Android produced by Halcon. The game seemed innocuous enough from the download page, even though reviews were mixed. However, little did we know there was a hidden secret inside…

Adorable cat strikes mind-boggling pose – Can you decipher what he’s trying to communicate?

Sometimes our pets do crazy things to get our attention, whether it be for food, to play or just for some good ol’ loving. This adorable green-eyed feline seems to have tried everything to get his owner’s attention, but with little success, so he had to resort to some sort of strange yoga move. This pose did the trick, because he not only got the attention he craved, but that of the internet community too!

It’s Panda-monium! Play-fighting pandas pummel and paw their way into our hearts

Pandas have a pretty laid-back and serene image, don’t they? When you picture pandas, you probably imagine them lazing around, maybe chewing on some bamboo or their own feet.

But it turns out that when you put a bunch of pandas into a zoo enclosure together, you sometimes wind up with a panda death match, a veritable battle royale of pandas, where escape is futile and the fight goes on until only one panda emerges victorious! Okay, so they’re only play-fighting, but it’s still really, really cute!

Oh, Okami! You make the cutest video game tissue box cover (and cushion…and clock…and mugs)

While you can quibble about its pacing and simplistic combat engine, there’s no arguing that Capcom’s Okami is one of the most visually breathtaking video games of all time. Whether you’re talking about the 2006 original or the more recent HD remaster for the PlayStation 3, the ink brush painting-inspired graphics are beautiful enough to bring tears to your eyes, so when they do, why not reach for a tissue from inside this awesome Okami tissue box cover?

Tokyo zoo’s snow leopard capture drill is organized, efficient, and adorably costumed 【Video】

For animal-lovers, a visit to the zoo can make for a delightful afternoon. Nothing quite spoils the enjoyment, though, like carnivorous animals escaping their enclosures and running amok.

As such, it’s incredibly important that zookeepers, such as the ones at Tokyo’s Tama Zoological Park, develop and drill recapture procedures for escaped animals. And if such exercises involve someone dressing up in an adorable snow leopard costume and flailing around like a predatory cat that’s had one too many Ebisu beers? Well, that’s just icing on the cake.

Wild squirrel attaches itself to man’s leg in one of Japan’s cutest animal attacks, but why?

For the most part, you can walk through the mountains and forests of Japan without fear of being accosted by wild animals. Sure, some areas post signs asking hikers to beware of bears, boars, or monkeys, but for the most part, you’ll find Japanese fauna to be as hospitable and unobtrusive as the Japanese people themselves.

Unless, of course, you give them a reason to start chasing you down, like this man did with this squirrel.

The foxes at Kitsune Village are back to kill you… with more cuteness 【Video】

We’ve introduced you to the impossibly adorable wonderland of cute known as Zao Kitsune Village before, but these little guys are so darn cute we just can’t help ourselves. The zoo, located in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan has over 100 little fox fluff-balls running free through the park grounds. A walk through the Kitsune Village, with all that cute running around you, is probably akin to a walk through heaven.

And for those of you still wondering what the fox says? We have some video evidence for you to hear for yourselves!

Even a master Japanese painter was up for some adorable monkey business

Jakuchu Ito (伊藤若冲), who lived from 1716-1800, was one of Japan’s most prolific painters during the nation’s Edo period of isolation from the rest of the world. The majority of his works were in the form of hanging scroll paintings, and while they often depicted incredibly intricate scenes from the natural world, one Japanese net user was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this picture of a mother and child gibbon that appears decidedly more playful in nature, and it’s sure to melt your heart!
