Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Don’t Have to Take Your Time

Posted by SaraG on July 20, 2017

While I sometimes struggle with female idol groups (I am obviously not the target demographic) I, as I have mentioned many times, love with an undying passion a good female solo artist. Particularly one that has worked her ass off to get where she is and isn’t afraid to be who she is regardless of the standards set by the industry and culture she’s in. There’s something about breaking down boundaries to do your craft that just makes me proud to be a lady. I use the term lady loosely as I don’t fit many of the lady like standards. I don’t even try.

The Military Giveth, The Military Taketh Away. Again.

Posted by Stephanie on July 18, 2017

The ever revolving door of the male K-star military service can be an emotional rollercoaster for the K-fan. Especially for those newbies out there…oh the feelings of those early days when you first realized your bias of the moment would suddenly be disappearing for 2 years — to us more seasoned, jaded fans, it’s old hat. (Of course, this doesn’t stop us from having the odd lip biting moment when we realize a particular favorite is due to head in. For me, it was the double whammy of T.O.P and Junsu.)

Usually, it’s the odd smattering of stars going in and out, one here and there. Sometimes stars try to sneak in, sometimes stars sneak out, attempting to blend in with the standard soldier, talking about just wanting to do his duty as a Korean Man. Then there are those who go and come with large fanfare, fan groups sending them off with the expected weeping and screams of the idol fangirl.

Sometimes, if the stars align just right, you have moments like these, where just as the military spits out a few of the missing, it readies to scoop up a few more. I guess it depends on how you look at it. As penance for getting some of your favorites returned, new ones have to be taken or to sooth your fangirl soul over the loss of a few good men, the military will toss you a bone and release a few.  Read more

Musical Monday – Swinging With a Limp Fist

Posted by SaraG on July 17, 2017

Music

Sometimes I find it’s better to not know that something ‘big’ is coming. That way, my anticipation is kept in check and I don’t get all worked up about what it might sound like…a bad release by someone I’ve been waiting for can set me in a tailspin. I start to question everything I know about the world and it can get kind of…messy. Read more

Show Notes

Are we ready for some drama? Of the Kdrama — and actually of the Kpop news variety? We’re talking dramas like Fight My Way (which Cherry Cordial has rightly picked up), questions brought up by Lookout, and waiting eagerly for Bon Voyage 2. We also talk about the troubling power of Kpop fans, with the recent Seo Taiji and Super Junior news.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Homecoming

So I’m going to do a tiny bit of cheating here…just breaking my own rules all willy nilly. Kind of. Remember on Monday when I said that I had missed a whole bunch of really great releases while I was on vacay? I have spent the last several days almost entirely focused on listening to those songs as well as the new releases that have come out in the past few days…like Zico, and Changmo, and Lee Hyori. So good. But one of those releases led me down a strange, nineties themed hole that was the inspiration for this post.

China Cracks Down On LGBT Content–Wait–Didn’t We Already Go Through This?

Posted by Stephanie on July 11, 2017

General

That’s what I thought. Last year, news reports came out of China that there was a  planned crackdown on ‘abnormal sexual content’ in dramas, falling under that umbrella would be any LGBT content, as it is considered vulgar and unpatriotic. So when the last week or two the same news rumbled around the internet, I was confused, didn’t we already go through this?

Turns out, last year’s crackdown was just for regular television programs, this newest attack would be against the home of the LGBT drama…the internet.  Read more

Musical Monday – Rated R for Violence

Music

I’m back! I’m back!

And I swear to all that is good and pure that I missed some of the best songs of the summer while I was away. I did have wireless at some of our Airbnb’s, but even then it was slow and shady at best. Despite my lovely friends’ best efforts, I didn’t really keep in the loop beyond the occasional gif that finally loaded and my iTunes recommended playlist that pops up every Friday. It was dismal. I had to listen to music I had downloaded prior to leaving Colorado. Some of that stuff is weeks old, years even. (I am being dramatic here, I downloaded heaps of songs I love and was perfectly happy with my choices.)

Khottie of the Week: The Dimple Edition, Part Two

Posted by Stephanie on July 8, 2017

Khottie of the Week

DIMPLES. Dimples. DIMPLES. Dimples. So I’m a fan. A big fan. And I’m not alone. After KpopontheDL had a great dimple party last week, and as scheduling required her to take this week off, she invited me to add to her collection. Or, to fix some egregious oversights to the list. While it’s been a while since I’ve done a Khottie post, I guess I can power through, look at some hotties, and put together a list. Now onto Dimples! Read more
