I have a fairly simple question for you. I’ve been struggling with it for a while and I just can’t come up with an answer. Since I figure I can’t be the only one struggling with this question, I pose it to you: How is it that Choi Jin Hyuk continues to get even more attractive every year?
Braiiinnnzzzz! Zombies are real. Or…Zombies are a real thing that really terrifies me. Zombies also happen to be the subject of the much anticipated Netflix Korean drama, Kingdom. Read more
As I’ve mentioned, I took the time to watch Produce 101 Season 2 (a year late) in part to catch glimpses of Jeong Sewoon and the Nu’est members, but also to get to know this up and coming group of idols poised to take over the scene in the next year. It worked,.I learned many of them quite well and became at least familiar with a boatload more. They are now starting to pop up all over the place and despite nearly reaching full saturation for groups to love, I can’t help but to pay attention and get attached. Better Judgement be damned.

Whatcha doin’? We’re watchin’ some dramas! Care to join us? We’re talking Stephanie’s continued obsession with Dangerous Beyond the Blanket, Cherry and her love of Father is Strange, hate-watching Where Stars Land and even more! Because drama watching… it’s what we do.
You may recall a few weeks ago when Alix did all of Highlight as her Khottie of the week. She’d briefly fallen down a hole of obsessing about them, specifically Yoo Doo-Joon, and had dragged me along with her. While she was able to pull herself out after a couple of weeks and one small purchase of an album, I have not been so lucky. For whatever reason, I have been completely consumed and have come to a number of realizations about the members in general and one member specifically.
He’s back, our Duckbutt is back! Can you believe it’s been two years? Or one year, nine months to be exact? No? Me neither! It seems like just yesterday we were waving our hankies at our computer screens, telling ourselves, it’s only two years, but deep in our hearts we knew, two years was forever. Turns out? Not so forever. Read more
On this very important election day, I’ve done what many of us have, cast my vote and then headed for the hills to wait for the smoke to clear. It all made me wonder about the Korean dramas I’ve watched which have focused around an election then I realized….there was only one. I’m not talking sidelines, those evil big bad k-dads who are up for election and can only get there by hiding love ones or the loved ones of loved ones in the always popular mental hospital, but actual dramas where the main plot revolves around a political race. Racking my brain, yep, there was only one. Which made me wonder, do I just not watch political dramas or are there just not many out there?
So let’s do some research. Read more
Until watching Produce 101, Season 2, I had almost zero attachment to BoA. I mean, I know she’s amazing, I’ve liked a few songs, but she wasn’t what I came into Kpop on and I never really took the time to deep dive and fall in love. It’s my fault, not hers, and I know plenty of folks that have adored her for eons…Stephanie among them. But after watching the care with which she served as the Representative National Producer on the show and the way she spoke to and cared for the poor trainees, I got a little attached. And then she had a new release and I was all in.
Stephanie asked me at one point this past summer why I hadn’t featured Jooheon yet and what in the world was I waiting for…well Birthday Girl here’s your answer! I like to think that if it wasn’t for me she would never have met Monsta X and specifically Jooheon…it took months of subversive listening on our Friday night drives home and well-timed support from SaraG. So for your Mumble-Mumble birthday, it only seems fair to gift you a post of nothing but Jooheon…and cake but that’ll come later (and in person). Read more
When thinking about all of the ways to pay tribute to a dear friend on her birthday when you have access to a long-standing and delightfully supportive blog, It becomes super obvious that you should do a post. When said friend is the owner and operator of the blog it gets a little more challenging…I mean, I can’t exactly write something and schedule it in advance, she’ll get a notification and the whole thing will be ruined. Luckily, it’s my flex day and I have a quiet moment to put a few words to e-paper.
