Musical Monday – Bonding With the Members

Posted by SaraG on February 18, 2019


As more and more of our fav groups are being impacted by time (read: members going off to the military or aging out of the desire to be an idol) we are seeing a surge in solo releases. It’s interesting, I’ve found that I’m just as excited for the solo releases from members as I am for group comebacks, but in a bit of a different way. I mean, I loooove groups, I love to see them all together, how they interact, how parts of distributed, and how a group takes on a concept despite the members having such individual personalities. But it’s fascinating to see an idol, an artist, take on more of their own unique style which may or may not be completely divorced from the image their group has adopted…or been given.

Th_Hottie of the Week: Love by Chance

Posted by Alix on February 17, 2019

Khottie of the Week

I debated long and hard about writing this post, as I would be outing myself, so to speak, as someone who watches and enjoys BL. But this past week was Valentine’s Day, and as a day that exists solely to celebrate love, I wanted to do this post in recognition that all of us, where ever we live, should be able to love whomever we want and in whatever form love takes.  Read more

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Posted by SaraG on February 14, 2019


I’ve said it a couple of times already in the past few posts, but there are an AWFUL lot of fantastic babies born in February. We even have TWO of our very own NerdHerd celebrating today of all days: Alix and LizC! I see these two women at least once a week if not a whole lot more, and it still feels a little bit magical to celebrate the day of their birth. We are so darned lucky that we all stumbled into each other in this big, wide world.

#SouthKorea2019 – An Update

Posted by Stephanie on February 12, 2019


It’s been a while since I posted an update regarding my trip to South Korea, I’m not certain as to why…maybe, though it’s just weeks away it doesn’t quite seem real? That’s probably it. But now? It’s officially, today, three weeks away.

Queue panic? Maybe that’s why I didn’t mention it! So much to do and now, literally so little time! Luckily, since the last time we talked, we’ve nailed down so many more details. Here’s what #SouthKorea2019 looks like! Read more

Musical Monday – Twofer

Posted by SaraG on February 11, 2019


My list of recommended new releases this week was stellar. I liked nearly every single one of the 25+ songs and was a little overwhelmed at how lucky I am and how much the universe truly does like me. Among the vast array of genres and artists represented were two of my favorite female Korean solo musicians, one of which hasn’t made a big comeback in a couple of years. That’s like the Korean Entertainment Complex wishing me the happiest of birthdays and, I accept wholeheartedly.

Thank you.

Show Notes

It’s the A-Side which means we’re talking about what we’re watching and since we binged Kingdom together with LizC, it seems only fitting we have her on the show to help us break down this edge of your seat drama! Don’t worry folks who haven’t seen it (though seriously, go out and watch it) we save Kingdom for the end and clearly say SPOILER HERE so you won’t be tricked into knowing who gets eaten. We’re also talking about Cherry’s surprise watch, surprises found in Stephanie’s rewatch of Like Love, and the end of LizC’s foodie dramas. (Spoiler alert—it’s because she’s now mad about Chinese dramas!)

Knock, Knock, let us in! We promise we’re not zombies!

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Crowdsourcing the Kpop

Posted by SaraG on February 7, 2019


In the Nerdherd we often joke about buying albums or memorabilia as our way of buying a sandwich for the members of whichever groups we’re sweatin’ at the time. It’s our tiny of way of showing support through financial means when we don’t have the opportunity to go to a bunch of shows or fan meets on the regular. For the longest time, it was the only tangible way I could think of besides comments on Insta posts to show these far away groups just how much I appreciated what they were doing.

Musical Monday – Time to Celebrate

Posted by SaraG on February 4, 2019


I want you to run through a list of all of the February babies you know. I’m guessing it’s weirdly long for such a short month. There are so many Feb babies and so, so many of them are amazing. I’m not just saying this because I’m one of them, or because Alix is one of them…no, it’s because it’s true. If you’re looking for proof, you really ought not look further than NCT. No fewer than six members have February birthdays and that’s without knowing the dates for the three new Chinese members. Six out of the eighteen is a darned high percentage and that’s just one group. You’ve got Johnny (same day as me… its fate), Doyoung, Jaehyun (same as Alix!), Ten, Jungwoo, and Jisung. Not too shabby.
