Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Cracks in the Facade

Posted by SaraG on April 18, 2019

Music

I am currently working through my feelings around Junhyung’s (Highlight) involvement in the great and shitty Kpop scandal of 2019 and what it all means for the music left in the wreckage. I mean, I am VERY clear on how I feel about the situation in general and the treatment of women by these – can we even call them men anymore? It is disgusting and abhorrent and dehumanizing for women in general and the victims specifically. I have strong opinions about punishment and consequences and how I am going to personally handle my relationship with the primary instigators. That’s the easy bit. But it’s harder when it’s someone that just received the content, had a crass conversation, and didn’t do anything about it. It’s harder when they owned their mistakes, verbalized how awful it all was without making excuses, and accepted the consequences as gracefully as the situation allowed. It’s REALLY hard when that person was one of your biases…was potentially your ultimate bias.

Musical Monday – And We all Topple One By One

Posted by SaraG on April 15, 2019

Music

I got a birthday present this year and I didn’t even know it.

On February 9, 2019, just in time for me to enter that next phase in my life – the one that starts with a 4 – the members of a new project group, 1the9 were announced. This group, formed by participants in a survival program called Under Nineteen are just that…under nineteen. Ouch. Babies. The show started with 57 trainees and narrowed it down to the 9 that will be part of this group for a 12 month period. Just long enough for us to fall head over heels for the group as a whole and then feel super sad when they go back to their management agencies and get shuffled into new groups or debut as solo artists (and one inevitably has to sue his management company for some sort of breach of contract and one decides that he just wants to be an actor).

Khottie of the Week: Yoon Kyun Sang

Khottie of the Week

In a recent conversation with a non-kfriend, she mentioned how her boyfriend felt he would have failed at online dating because he loved cats…and that’s not always seen as cool. Cats can be hit and miss for me but I do appreciate a guy who loves his pets regardless of what kind. Yoon Kyun Sang popped up on my radar due to a Soompi article on how he’d posted on social media about the death of one of his cats. I was intrigued and somehow that led to watching his newest drama Clean with Passion for Now. Read more

Show Notes

After last week’s episode of ugh, we’ve decided to get back to business — the business of being light and happy drama watchers. With that in mind, we’re talking about the dramas Cherry’s been watching while we’ve been away and the drama Stephanie picked up once the jet lag dropped off. We’re also trying to figure out what drama trope best encapsulates our personalities with a quiz and are happy/sad about Up10ion’s ticket sales.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Back to YouTube

Posted by SaraG on April 11, 2019

Music

We are finally past the two-week allowable window for using jet lag as an excuse for not getting back to our regular routines. I mean, JUST past the window, but it’s here. This means that on top of getting back to working out, running, eating right, and getting my laundry done, I also need to get back into paying attention to checking things off my YouTube ‘to watch’ list in a strategic and meaningful way AND getting back to forcing Stephanie to love some of the things I just KNOW she’ll bond with given time and well thought out exposure.  

Those last two things link up enough that I could tackle them simultaneously, at least partially, on Friday night in my basement. WOOHOO!

Follow Through

I know I say a lot. Kind of my job. My main issue I have is with follow through. Ooh this show looks good, I’m gonna watch it, that show looks good, I can’t wait to see it, this post seems fun…I’m gonna write it. And yet….

So color me shocked and amazed when, as I excitedly sputtered about the new Netflix show, Possessed, I actually got right off my computer, went to bed and curled up around my tablet to watch the first episode. Proof!

I wish I hadn’t. Read more

Please Excuse Me…

While I go out and binge this new Netflix drama!
Have you been watching this show, Possessed on Netflix? We were JUST talking about Netflix shows, how could you not tell me this show was a thing? Did you want to keep it to yourselves? Meanies. I mean sure, who knew this drama about a detective and a clairvoyant would catch my eye? Who knew I’d actually want to watch something that was ‘currently airing’? To that I say…good point. But you should have. Read more

Musical Monday – Cereal First

Posted by SaraG on April 8, 2019

Music

I have a soft spot for singer/songwriters. You’re gasping in shock, I know. But I just wanted to make that perfectly clear so that when I pop them up here on the site, you aren’t all ‘Where’s my Kpop?”

Since I’m the one writing the posts and its frankly easiest to write about what I’m listening to, you get dragged along for the ride. Lucky for all of us invested in the content of this website, the vast majority of what I listen to happens to be Kpop and Kpop adjacent. This week, I’ve been on a huge PLT kick, as happens with great frequency, but I’ve also been dipping my toe into the catalog of a little known solo artist releasing under the name Goonight.
