Follow Through

I know I say a lot. Kind of my job. My main issue I have is with follow through. Ooh this show looks good, I’m gonna watch it, that show looks good, I can’t wait to see it, this post seems fun…I’m gonna write it. And yet….

So color me shocked and amazed when, as I excitedly sputtered about the new Netflix show, Possessed, I actually got right off my computer, went to bed and curled up around my tablet to watch the first episode. Proof!

I wish I hadn’t. Read more

Please Excuse Me…

While I go out and binge this new Netflix drama!
Have you been watching this show, Possessed on Netflix? We were JUST talking about Netflix shows, how could you not tell me this show was a thing? Did you want to keep it to yourselves? Meanies. I mean sure, who knew this drama about a detective and a clairvoyant would catch my eye? Who knew I’d actually want to watch something that was ‘currently airing’? To that I say…good point. But you should have. Read more

Musical Monday – Cereal First

Posted by SaraG on April 8, 2019

Music

I have a soft spot for singer/songwriters. You’re gasping in shock, I know. But I just wanted to make that perfectly clear so that when I pop them up here on the site, you aren’t all ‘Where’s my Kpop?”

Since I’m the one writing the posts and its frankly easiest to write about what I’m listening to, you get dragged along for the ride. Lucky for all of us invested in the content of this website, the vast majority of what I listen to happens to be Kpop and Kpop adjacent. This week, I’ve been on a huge PLT kick, as happens with great frequency, but I’ve also been dipping my toe into the catalog of a little known solo artist releasing under the name Goonight.

Khottie of the Week: Choi Tae Joon

Posted by Alix on April 7, 2019

Khottie of the Week

I tend to find an actor/actress I like (but let’s be honest it’s mostly actors) and then figure out everything they’ve been in and watch all of it in quick succession. This is the reason I have quite a lot of semi done shows on my currently watching list. I watch for a certain someone and then the show is odd or not the best and I get stuck halfway through before moving on to the next shiny object. I found Choi Tae Joon when I decided to watch Suspicious Partner as Viki kept telling me I would like it…I did and I liked Choi Tae Joon too. Read more

Show Notes

As we talked about in our last week’s episode, this week we are delving into the muck that is going on in Kpop right now. We’re, ugh, talking about Burning Sun, ugh hidden chatrooms, police coverups Seungri, Jung Joon Young, and a bad, bad, Mr. Kim. Allegedly. Featuring Stephanie’s disgust, Cherry Cordial’s calming presence, and one bad-ass spreadsheet.

Due to content and language, this episode might not be for everyone.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – The Wave of The Underrated

Posted by SaraG on April 4, 2019

Music

If you’ve ever poked around any social media platform or podcast hosting site or what have you for Kpop related content, you will notice pretty quickly that there is a whole movement of folks trying to get more attention either to their favorite group who just isn’t making it to A level status or for underrated Kpop groups in general. There are just SO MANY groups out there it would be impossible for all of them to make no matter how much talent they have, how hard they work, or how hot they are. There just isn’t enough money in the world or enough hours in the day for us to love them all equally. It burns because I know that some of my absolute favorites are probably routinely on the chopping block at their agencies because they just aren’t pulling in the dollars that other groups are making.

Netflix QUIZ!

Posted by Stephanie on April 2, 2019

General

Scrolling through the Netflix feed, trying to sort through what to watch next, I’m struck by just how many Kdramas are listed! When I first started watching (back in the day) there were none listed in the dramas you could stream and only a few, and of those few, only old, not super well-known titles that you could get on disk form. (See, back in the day when you actually had the DVD service of Netflix.) Now they have so many, new ones, old ones, ones made directly for them. The one thing I am struck by is their naming conventions. Or, in this case, the naming un-conventions. In a lot of cases, they take the most popular title, look at it, go, naaaah, and choose something else on the list, leaving us, the interested viewer going, do I know this? Did I watch this? Was I going to skip this?

Or maybe it’s just me? Maybe I don’t know them as well as I think I do. So I thought I’d take a little quiz, look at the pictures (usually, just as helpfully, not the poster from the drama itself) and see if I can figure out what the drama actually is. Let’s see how we do…. Read more

Musical Monday – Refuse to Make an April Fool’s Joke

Posted by SaraG on April 1, 2019

Music

If you have read almost any of my posts in the last year or listened to Stephanie on the podcast when my musical tastes pop up, you will know that I reserve the absolute softest part of my heart for Jeong Sewoon. He is one of the brightest diamonds in a field of gems. But as a solo artist in the world of Kpop, the likelihood of my getting to see him on tour in the US is very, very slim. I didn’t even think to consider him for my list of two artists I would see this year if they come to the US. And now that I say that, it breaks my heart.

Khottie of the Week: Park Hyung Sik

Posted by Alix on March 31, 2019

Khottie of the Week

Sometimes figuring out what to write to open the post is the most challenging part. So when I need inspiration I ask SaraG to give me a random sentence to get the juices flowing. The response I got when I told her about this week’s khottie was “I am a little drunk and now I’m slightly obsessed with Park Hyung Sik.” Read more

Show Notes

We’re back! And we’re so, so sorry for having missed TWO weeks! Now that Stephanie is back in the states and mostly back in the brain, it’s time to talk the next adventure, all the upcoming Kpop Concerts! Unfortunately, with the rise of popularity in the US, it’s getting harder and harder to get your hands on those good seats…or sometimes? Any seats at all. Which means it’s time to gather up the posse and make some tough decisions.
