Musical Monday – I Touched an Idol and I Liked It

Posted by SaraG on August 21, 2017

Music

For many of the the Nerd Herd, this is our first time attending KCon LA and it’s quite different from KCon NY (or NYAdjacent for those of us with any geographical knowledge). First, it’s inside and there’s all sorts of AC blasting…I brought a sweater and this pleases me. Second, the panels are so much better when you can hear them because they aren’t in a tent next to another tent where someone is performing. And there were more panels…lots more.  And third, there was a lot more merch for sale. Not enough of the crap I wanted to buy, but a lot more. And finally, there seemed to be an attempt to make the show a bit more interactive, well rounded, and paired down so you could enjoy the performances…not a lot of fluff to block the dancing. Airbnb Bedmate Alix particularly enjoyed the rotating MC’s.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – When Wishing Really Hard Works

Posted by SaraG on August 17, 2017

Music

Because I am a responsible adult with a household, children, and debilitating student loans, I had to make the heartbreaking decision between going to G Dragon in Chicago or to KCon LA this year. I chose G Dragon, the steak dinner, over the cocktail party of KCon because I wanted to be able to bask in all of his glory before he ships off to the military in the next year. It was rough, but I made the choice and felt that I had made the right one for me. That does not, however, mean that I wasn’t just a smidge sad over knowing that my friends were going to see a few songs each from some of the artists I have been lusting after for the last couple of years. I was totally jelly and I own it.

Last Minute KCon K-Fanfic Crafting

Posted by Stephanie on August 17, 2017

General

No. No I will NOT spell crafting with a K — not even for the alliteration.

As I am quite the queen of the last minutes, I had a grand idea about 3 minutes before I had to leave. Let’s make Infectious t-shirts for our Fanfic panel at Kcon! Do I have a printer? Nope. Did I have a design ready? Nope. Did I have a plan? Nope. Did this matter? Well. Apparently yes, but luckily thanks to an indulgent SaraG and the pre-made graphics from Cherry Cordial, we got it done!

If you’re going to be at KCON and you see this t-shirt stop and say hi! Team Kchat Jjigae wants to meet you! And if you’re going to be at Kcon, you should come to my panels.

Musical Monday – Getting All the Love

Posted by SaraG on August 14, 2017

Music

You want to know who represents the physical embodiment of the ENTIRE package? Like all of the singing, dancing, rapping(ish), hardworking, caring, beautiful, naughty, etc. parts of the package? The one that everyone loves and nobody can deny…even when he’s not your bias (though a little part of you wonders if you were picked by the wrong idol in the group)? To be honest, there are tons of these kinds of entertainers out there, but the one I’m talking about right now is one that I get to see in person next weekend. And no, he’s not my bias (I’m kinda still working on that) in the group, but damn, he really does deserve all of the attention he gets.

Khotties of the Week: The KCON LA 2017 Edition

Posted by KpopontheDL on August 12, 2017

Khottie of the Week/ Music

KCON is pretty much all any of us here at Kchat Jjigae can talk about right now since we’re all descending on LA next weekend for the big event.  This will be my first time to attend LA (and the last time I was in the city I was 8 years old, which was a loooooong time ago).  I was having a hard time deciding who from the lineup would feature as this week’s Khottie and so I bounced my ideas off SaraG who basically told me not to choose.  Brilliant!  Khotties of KCON it is!

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – May Was Awhile Ago

Posted by SaraG on August 10, 2017

Music

I’ve kind of been in a CNBlue mood lately. This in itself is somewhat odd. I really like their stuff, but I think that I like their studio releases more in theory than in actual practice. They are obviously talented and their songs are catchy, but the balance between rock and pop swings a little more toward cute than driving so I haven’t gotten obsessed with any particular track. I’ve been told that I would absolutely love them live. That it’s a whole different side of CNBlue that will have me looking for specific things in their songs and make me a bigger fan. One day, boys, one day.
