Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Inception

Posted by SaraG on August 22, 2019

Music

In my former television watching days, I was never really one for competition or survival shows. I liked the photoshoots on America’s Next Top Model and I admit to maybe an episode or two of the Real World – back when it was good. But other than that, I just didn’t care for the brutal competitiveness. With the exception of So You Think You Can Dance. I LOVE that show. I could and do watch dancing with all of the awe and envy of someone with the heart of a performer and the body of, well, not a performer.

Additions to the LGBT List LATER

Posted by Stephanie on August 20, 2019

General

It’s that time again! I’ve been keeping these LGBT posts to every four months or so, but with how I’m chug-a-lugging them down, I’m going to have to step it up as I’m afraid I’m going to blow through them. Plus with so many coming all the time? Whew. I don’t think I’m ever going to run out! In this addition, we found a trove of older ones, a lot of them movies. While these are harder to find through the usual visual suspects, and even harder to find them with subs, or good subs, but I think it’s important to note what came before so we can see just how far we’ve come. The leaps this genre has taken even in the time that I’ve been doing this list is astounding.

That being said, if you haven’t seen History 3 yet? GO DO IT NOW. Srsly. Read more

Musical Monday – Hint: Learn the Violin

Posted by SaraG on August 19, 2019

Music

Remember how every year you went to Kcon (or wanted to go to Kcon) and they announced that Jun Curry Ahn would be there playing his Kpop covers on the violin. With each performance, the covers got better and he started to incorporate his dance group into the show. More recently, we began to see pics of him with the idols he admired…remember that? That’s always been a fantasy of mine – not like a naughty fantasy, but a personal fantasy – meeting someone I admire and becoming pals. It’s always a risk getting to know someone you like from a distance because there’s no way they can live up to the hype you’ve built in your brain, but what if they did and you were able to be like phone call friends, texting buddies, etc.

Korean Adventures Day 8: We Love A Man Who Loves A Market

Posted by Stephanie on August 18, 2019

General

The day is here, the day that Alix Leaves us to wing back to the states. But that doesn’t mean her whirlwind tourism is over. HECK NO. As the clock ticks down, she’s leading us off to the royal palaces, but not to see some palaces, we’re on the hunt for some battling Kpop shops in order to bring back memories from their first trip to Korea, then, once she’s off, the rest of us stare at each other, and wonder what do we do next…before deciding to go eat something. SHOCKER. 

On a side note, no, the last hour of Tuesday is not the new official date for these posts to come out. Life has thrown me a couple of curveballs the previous few weeks, but, hopefully, we’re getting back on track. Or at least I hope we are as mama needs a rest. 

And a new place to live. But that’s another story.  Read more

TH_Hottie of the Week: Off & Gun

Posted by Alix on August 17, 2019

Khottie of the Week

From the first moment it was announced in early spring, this was the weekend I had been so very very excited for. Finally, finally, finally, I would have a chance to see iKON, the group that for the last 2 plus years has been my kpop group. And then June 12th happened. I’m still heading to LA this weekend, and while I will also catch bits of KCON, most of the excitement has been replaced with something else. In writing this post, it was important that it be an instant smile when I look at my email on Saturday morning. The wonderful world of Thai BL has been proving to be a good distraction and so I introduce you to the two that can’t help but make you smile. Read more

Show Notes

Special trip, special episode! LizC, Cherry Cordial and I hang out in LA for a packed K-overnight! We are wowed at the Monsta X concert despite Kihyun’s broken rib and LizC’s desire to rally a fan chant. We’re then both wowed and not so wowed by the BTS exhibit. You know, before LizC almost gets herself kicked out. (Though we’d put our money on LizC anyday.) As with all live videos, this is unedited and unapologetic.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Me, Dead on the Floor

I’m not ready to talk about it yet – it being IMFACT – so I’m going to plop in another new release because I love it and I want to and you can’t stop me. See how that works? Stephanie gave me admin rights to the site and two and a half years later I got cocky about it. Oh, the power.

Korean Adventures Day Eight: Kpop Takes A Vacation

Posted by Stephanie on August 13, 2019

General

Day Eight! At this time I can’t believe we’ve been in Korea for more than a week! And, unfortunately, the time is just flying by for us as we hit major milestones in our trip and begin the final count down for Alix’s departure. This episode we answer last week’s cliffhanger….what happened to SaraG’s phone? We have our first real Kpop experience with a music show taping, and, most importantly, get our hands on some legendary toast-uh.  Read more

Musical Monday – I’m Sure to Have a Kpop Hangover

Posted by SaraG on August 12, 2019

Music

I am positive that as you read this I’m suffering from a bit of a Kpop (if not a regular) hangover. I’m writing this well in advance because I’ve got some plans this weekend and I want to make sure to get a post up for the wee hours on Monday because I have a strong sense of responsibility and a keen work ethic. But I’m dying a little inside in anticipation of the huge milestone I’ll be hitting on Sunday night with one of my Chicago based Kpop friends.

Khottie of the Week: Park Ki Woong

Posted by Alix on August 11, 2019

Khottie of the Week

I am not the biggest fan of sageuk/historical dramas. It’s not the costumes, more the fact that there is a greater chance that your main couple will not end up together or something bad will happen to a character you really like. I’m a big fan of Astro’s Cha Eun Woo and picked up Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung as soon as it started on Netflix. While it has elements of cuteness, it is also tackling more serious subjects and I watch each episode as it comes out, so hoping that nothing bad happens to any of the main characters (well only the good ones). That includes today’s khottie, Park Ki Woong, who plays the Crown Prince that you desperately only want true love and other good things for. Read more
