Musical Monday – EZ Come, EZ Go

Posted by SaraG on February 27, 2017

Music

Sometimes I get a craving for a particular group or type of music and I listen to it for days and days until the idea of turning it on again feels more like a habit than an actual desire. That’s when you know you have to mix it up in order to feel inspired again. It’s ok, it’s not cheating to like more than one thing at a time, especially in music.

(Side eye to the friend that is struggling with this  notion right now, don’t be dumb…it’s not cheating)

Khottie of the Week: Wonho

Posted by KpopontheDL on February 25, 2017

Khottie of the Week/ Music

So…  I was supposed to cover somebody else this week, because we’re leading up to a big concert, but I looked at the Kchat Jjigae Khottie Birthday Calendar (it does actually exist) and spotted Monsta X’s Wonho’s 24th birthday happening this week.

Show Notes

This episode we’re back to the B-side, and we’re finally doing what we promised — catching up on comments on comments and listener questions! We’re brought back to the drunken end-of-the year podcast, Stephanie accidentally outs listener Liz C’s Seungri situation, someone asks about how to kpop concert, we answer a very delicate DramaFever question, and decide to no longer like Spice Angel and Mr. Spice Angel as they got the good BTS tickets and we didn’t. (Okay, maybe it was just one of us who said that, and you can probably guess who…)

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Dance Fitness

Posted by SaraG on February 23, 2017

Music

How many times have you thought to yourself, “this dance fitness class would be soooo much better if I actually liked the music?” I ask this because I have found myself ruminating on the idea during classes I have taken in days gone by and during my poor daughter’s hip hop classes. Why must we dumb down the tunes for fitness? So my girl Alix, now my hero, did something about it. She marched up to instructor (more likely shyly sidled up to her, but we’ll go with marched) and demanded (asked) that she put some Kpop into the mix.

Yoon!Shi!Yoon!

Posted by Stephanie on February 22, 2017

General

Is back on TV. He’s back on tv. I can’t wait to see him on TV.  (This is of course, actually sung to a jaunty little ditty playing in my head.) Over the weekend. I was on tumblr, and I kept coming across a cute little gif set of Yoon Shi Yoon being all adorable and cute. I figured to myself that it must have been from something older as he was so adorable and young looking and the Yoon Shi Yoon of today is all post-military hotness and maturity.

Whoops. So wrong. Read more

Lookout! New Drama Alert

Posted by Stephanie on February 21, 2017

Casting News

Heh. I’m so punny.

Since I’m now a giant Kim Young Kwang fan on the lookout for any new news on the Kim Young Kwang horizon, I’m happy to say, he’s looking at a new drama called Lookout! I know you can’t visually see this right now, but I’m doing a full on happy dance. Woot! Woot! Happy dance.

Interesting aside to possible new Kim Young Kwang drama (and as it’s not set in stone I say possible as drama casting is a trixie endeavor) the drama is an action possible fantasy drama (as of late all my dramas have been of the high-octane variety) and he plays a man who is twisted with revenge.

Musical Monday – Behavioral Health

Posted by SaraG on February 20, 2017

Music

The stigma around seeking help for behavioral health issues is real. Access to honest to god support and treatment can be challenging. So many of us crack jokes and act the fool to brush off serious conditions or self medicate using alcohol or drugs or food or other potentially damaging behaviors to mask larger concerns. This isn’t just an American problem either. It’s everywhere and it sucks. We often hear stories about idols ‘taking some time off to rest’ or being hospitalized for ‘exhaustion.’ But I am willing to bet that a fair portion of these cases include stress related behavioral health conditions and I think people are finally starting to put it out there.

B1A4! B1–aaaaa-4!

Posted by Stephanie on February 19, 2017

Music

Remember when I was all Eh, B1A4? Remember when I was all, oh, I don’t think I love them as much as I once did. When I was all, I’m just going to hang out with friends but I’m not super excited about the concert? Remember that? Yeah. That me was stupid. You should never, ever listen to past me. Past me obviously, has no taste. Past me obviously forgot what a good show B1A4 put on. Past me obviously forgot just how adorable these boys are.

Oh past me. So Silly. Read more

Khottie of the Week: SHINee’s Choi Minho

Posted by KpopontheDL on February 18, 2017

Khottie of the Week/ Music

It’s Kpop season!  Everybody and their little brother is touring, basically on top of each other, and we have gorgeous idols scheduled to arrive on our shores on an almost weekly basis.  /begin rant Somebody needs to explain to Korean entertainment companies that most American fans are not single fandom, and that we would happily give them all of our money if they would space themselves out in such a way that we could actually do that. /end rant  Aaaanyway, SHINee is the next big group to be touring here, so now is the perfect time for me to cover their prince, Minho.

Show Notes

In this very special episode, the East Coast faction of Kchat Jjigae — handily coined the Kpop Nerd Herd — is fresh off a very special evening with B1A4. We talk all about the concert (spoiler alert for you Banas out there whose concerts haven’t happened yet), a little bit of the Kpop Nerd Herd’s storming of Manhattan, just how B1A4’s skin feels (Hint: Delightful), and how high touches feel (Hint: Awkward).
