Musical Monday – I Love a Theme

Posted by SaraG on November 20, 2017

I’d like to say that the whole zombie theme that has become so pervasive in my life has stemmed from writing Infectious. But that would be a lie. Ever since I started in emergency management, and especially public health emergency preparedness and response, people assume that I am constantly preparing for the zombie apocalypse with tax dollars. While not entirely wrong, we try not to use those words. We do what’s called capabilities-based planning, not incident planning…because how you respond to any disease is pretty consistent, so you don’t need a plan for each individual disease, you need a response plan. In theory, and based on evidence, our emerging pathogens plan should work for zombies just as well as it does for Ebola or SARs or whatever. #PublicHealth

Khottie of the Week: SF9

Khottie of the Week/ Music

As we say in Colorado I am currently “back east” having come down from the Mile High City to sea level in NH/MA. This is where I am from originally and my family was thrilled when I texted in early October to ask if I could come for Thanksgiving. They were slightly miffed when the true reason for my trip was revealed but who said Kpop doesn’t bring families closer together! Read more

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Because We’ll be Seeing More Than Changmo

Posted by SaraG on November 16, 2017

Music

You might have heard, but 2017 has been a crazy year for Kpop shows in the US. There have been a steady flow of shows in all of the usual cities and a couple in places we were surprised to hear about. We in the Kpop Nerd Herd have had to pick and choose which concerts we would prioritize based on announcement timing, schedules, and funds. It’s not cheap to fly for shows…and tickets to a Kpop concert are typically on the pricier side. By the time the fall rolled around, we were pretty sure that most of us were tapped out for 2017.

Confirmed!

Casting News

Everybody, and when I say everybody, I mean the Hong Sisters, must be breathing a big sigh of relief on this one. Not only has Lee Seung Gi left the military as squeaky clean as he went in there, he finally agreed to sign onto their upcoming drama!

Yep. The long hero-less drama finally can set sail, or at least be known for more than not being able to get anyone sign on as lead. Well. Except Cha Seung Won as one of the main secondary leads.  Read more

I’m a rounder up of most dates…like I’m at about 7 years and 8 months at my real-world job, but I always say 8 years. Or, I’ve been married for 13 and a half years, buuuuut, I say 14. Here’s another, I started on my #Klife (before Alix coined the term) 4 years and 10 months ago. You guessed it, I say five years. I’m not intentionally exaggerating, it just seems cleaner somehow, like it’s more honest to give some credit to those days above and beyond the yearly anniversary without sounding like a kid.

What’s Happening With…Philip Lee

Posted by Stephanie on November 14, 2017

Remember him? He the super hot b-lead who spoke perfect English in Secret Garden? He disappeared halfway through Faith, even though originally he was cast as a fairly substantial character? Then he was seemingly never heard from again? That guy? Well, reader CJ wanted to know…what’s happening with Phillip Lee!

Now this one, I think I know, or I think I heard a rumor of what actually happened, so I’ll be interested to see if I’m correct. Let’s hit the Wikipedia mobile!  Read more

Musical Monday – Booty Shakin’

Posted by SaraG on November 13, 2017

Music

This week was painfully good for new releases. With Seventeen, Block B, Monsta X, and so on all releasing new mini to full-length albums with fabulous MVs, it was difficult to know what to write about today. The ladies and I were all up at the crack of dawn all week watching what had come out in Korea while we were sleeping and Friday night quickly devolved into us force feeding two of our work colleagues video after video while we argued about the merits of each and fully explained the ins and outs of the members. It wasn’t sad at all. Nobody lost respect for us.

Any NaNoWriMos Out There?

Posted by Stephanie on November 12, 2017

General

Question. This really doesn’t have anything thing to do with anything K-related. Just a random question to readers out there. I noticed in a few comments that there are some of you out there who are attempting to beat NaNoWriMo this year.  Read more

Khottie of the Week: Kim Jae Wook

Khottie of the Week

It must have something to do with the change in seasons and light but I’ve been seriously craving waffles. I don’t particularly like them for breakfast, too much sweetness to early in the morning but there is nothing more comforting than waffles for dinner. Thankfully I have friends who are always willing to humor me and so Friday night was waffle night…as awesome as I remembered. I feel like I could wax poetic about waffles for awhile but you are all likely sitting there wondering why I am talking about waffles when I should be talking khottie… Read more
