July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake dudes in bathingsuits wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. It's been reported that HyunA's new EP will show a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation tenfold.
