Lying and Other Fun Games

Posted by Stephanie on October 23, 2018

One of these days you’re going to come to the sad realization that I’m a liar. I’m a big fat fatty-McFat-Fat, “say one thing to your face and then do something completely different” liar. It’s not like I mean to lie. I say one thing, thinking it’s completely true. Sure I’m totally in the right. Then? The next minute? I’m completely off in the next direction, disregarding my vows, doing whatever feckless thing catches my fancy that moment. So, what was my big falsehood this time?

Guys. I can’t believe I’m about to say this….but I’m watching like 4 different shows AT ONCE.   Read more

Musical Monday – A Tease

Posted by SaraG on October 22, 2018

Music

I am more than a little excited right now. There are six bazillion comebacks this fall and Halloween is almost upon us. Two very heart-stirring things. But they aren’t the only things. I don’t know how it happened, but I started following a pre-debut group on Instagram not too long ago, fell just a tiny bit in love, and have been following their road from trainee to idol over the last several months. I’ve learned them through watching their YouTube show and performance videos, and have had my interest piqued by the one and only track they’ve shared with us to this point.  

They are making their big debut THIS WEEK.

Kcutie of the Week: Dare to Dream

Posted by Alix on October 21, 2018

Khottie of the Week/ Music

It’s my 13th month anniversary of doing khottie and since we missed the one year anniversary we shall live it up at 13 months by doing something totally different. Nothing like a bakers dozen as a cause for celebration…and at this time of the year celebrations are definitely in order (especially those that involve carbs or cuties). Read more

Show Notes

With the death of DramaFever, there is lots of upheaval going on in Kdramaland. Stephanie and Cherry chat what DramaFever meant to the creation of their fandom, trying to figure out what happened, where to go next, and what this means for the long-term prospects of the US Kdrama-watching base. Then we soothe some spirits and talk about what we’re watching: My Father is Strange, the GDragon documentary, Because It’s My First Life, Secretary Kim, Bon Voyage, and Where Stars Land.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – The Work Around

Posted by SaraG on October 18, 2018

Music

Question, does throwback mean that both the song and performance have been out for a while or does it mean that the song is old but the actual stage might be new. I’m opting for the latter today…because I make the rules for me and for this post. You’re going to just have to either skip the post if you don’t agree or just go along with it in order to see some great music further down the page. Sorry, friends.

The End of DramaFever

Posted by Stephanie on October 17, 2018

General

The Kdrama fandom suffered a big loss with the shuttering of the streaming service, DramaFever. It’s one of those things, first it was there, you never could have anticipated anything could have happened to it, and then, poof, it’s gone.

But could we have anticipated it? Read more

Fairy Tales Are Coming…To Town!

Posted by Stephanie on October 16, 2018

I want to say Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter may be the start of a new trend, but if you’ve been around long enough, you know, fairy tale inspired dramas are so common, they might as well be a trope now. No dig, I’m just laying out the facts. Hwayugi, Legend of the Blue Sea, Goblin… there are more and more, that I could add here but at some point, you’re just padding for length. Read more

Musical Monday – Far Out

Posted by SaraG on October 15, 2018

Music

Change is inevitable. It happens to all of us and it happens all of the time. Sometimes it’s lovely and well planned out, highly anticipated, and cherished. Other times is complicated and fast, out of control, and scary. It’s one of those things about life that come really easily for some and cause a lot of fear and anxiety in others. None of this is breaking news, it just is what it is.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Making the List

Posted by SaraG on October 11, 2018

Music

Due to the sheer number of groups debuting every year and my sudden desire to look up older groups that I haven’t paid enough attention to, I’ve been forced to examine who I’m really truly interested in actually monitoring on a routine basis versus passively being exposed to. It’s an incredibly, potentially life-altering decision to make on a group by group basis. I mean, what if I had selected to only passively enjoy IMFACT and instead focus on UNIQ? Who would I even be as a person today? Would we even be friends?
