Musical Monday – For Realz Yo

Posted by SaraG on April 23, 2018


I, like just about everyone going to Kcon and those that are hoping to go, keep getting distracted by the weekly artist announcements. So far I am completely stoked by everyone thus far. I think I’ve expressed my love quite publically for almost all of the groups announced to this point. And if I haven’t yet, it’s just a matter of time. I mean, come on, Heize made me cry last year in LA and I have recently adopted the Stray Kids as an up and coming favorite. My complete adoration of all things NCT has been discussed on the blog, the podcast, and in private conversations with complete strangers more times than I care to mention. And Wanna One? They are a group created specifically to kill us all.

Khottie of the Week: Yamazaki Kento

Khottie of the Week

Hello again everyone!  Kpop On the Downlow here filling in for Alix while she recovers from jet lag.  Alix has done such a great job taking the Khottie torch from me, and that’s partly due to the fact that she is a well-rounded #Klife fan and knows so many more actors than I do. I was running out of age appropriate Kpop idols! Read more

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – FIGHTING Songs

Posted by SaraG on April 19, 2018


Recently, one of my friends asked me to make her a playlist she could put on when she wanted to get pumped up…a FIGHTING playlist. As I’ve made this particular person a few playlists in the past and she’s been relatively happy with all of them, I felt pretty good going into it. However, after deliberating for weeks on which songs to choose I developed something of a playlist version of writer’s block. Songs that inspire you to push through a challenge can be intensely personal. I pulled something together based on what I thought might be energizing and motivating, but it wasn’t quite what she was looking for. I’d not gotten it right.

Casting News

I’ll admit, I’m totally busted to forgetting this new Netflix variety show was a thing, so much so that when I saw the article on Soompi the other day, I got all excited about a new variety show with Kwang Soo and Yoo Jae Suk. Literally. I was all “I can’t wait to tell the McFeeleys!” When after a tiny bit of research on the site made me realize, I did know, and I did tell the McFeeleys. What is going on with my brain lately? At least I know I’ve now been excited by the idea of this show twice now. I think I have to check it out Read more

Cherry & Stephanie Chat BTS Burn the Stage: Episode 4 – It’s On You and I

Posted by Stephanie on April 17, 2018


This is an episode of huge reveals and heartbreak. That’s all I have for an intro as I think it’s important that we get right into it. (Also, I might still be a little shell-shocked.)

Stephanie: I have so much to say about this episode and am not entirely certain I’m going to be able to say anything at all as I’m still trying to process all that went down. I had looked forward to seeing when they show the concert that I’m actually at, but they threw it on its ear and we really get to see behind the scenes, and it’s given me a WHOLE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE on what it was that I saw, both at the concert and on the screen.

Musical Monday – One Last Time

Posted by SaraG on April 16, 2018


It always makes me really sad when an artist or a group just stops putting out new music without forewarning or changes things up significantly enough that they update their own image or name entirely. I wasn’t even Garth Brooks biggest fan, but it still threw me for a bit of a loop when he became Chris Gaines. I mean, it’s really their prerogative, they owe me nothing, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. I’m the type that needs a nice farewell so I can prepare myself. But once they go off on their merry way, there will still be a tiny part of me that wants them to come back and will welcome them with arms tentatively held open.
