Musical Monday – Boyfriend Concept

Posted by SaraG on May 15, 2017

Music

It’s totally not weird, but this unni has some darling twenty something friends (like early twenties) that I love love love to hang out with. Their mother and I became close way back in the day and I got heart eyes for these two girls hard when they were five and seven and I was twenty-four. To this day they feel like my way younger sisters. And just as any older sister should do, I foist my love of Kpop and cute boys on them at regular intervals…like as regular as possible when they are all adult-y now and one of them lives in another state. It’s like I feel that it’s my duty to train the next (also adult) generation of listeners…even outside of my own spawn.

Khottie of the Week: Yoon Doo Joon

Posted by KpopontheDL on May 13, 2017

Khottie of the Week/ Music

I’ve been thinking about Doo Joon a lot lately – he keeps popping up in podcasts, on drama lists, in my YouTube suggestions – and I’m not complaining.   He’s a multitalented performer and has the most interesting face. I’ve not really covered any of the Beast/Highlight guys (except Gikwang briefly in the Pocket Idols segment) so this week will be a short appreciation post for their leader.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – My Mood Influences Your Tunes

Posted by SaraG on May 11, 2017

Music

Life has been busy, overwhelmingly so, for the last…well, it seems like a lifetime and I have been relying heavily on my time with my forever Kbestie Alix, my plotting and picture sharing with Stephanie, my virtual snuggles and YouTube clips from Leila, and my burgeoning friendships with so many great people in our little community to get me through. I don’t know if they all realize quite how important they are to me. Happily, I seem to be on the cusp of a few good things that may alleviate some of the pressure. Of course, the prep to make those good things alleviate anything means more work, but it’s something. It’s a horizon to move toward. I am one of those people whose mood, and I am guessing that many of you are kindred spirits, very much dictates the soundtrack to my life. My mood also very much influences what I post to Kchat on Mondays and Thursdays…so, lucky for me, I get to let my bad attitude dictate what you listen to in a very real way. You’re welcome.

Lookout! I’m Excited!

Posted by Stephanie on May 9, 2017

General

Hello there, new drama! Not gonna lie, it’s been a long time since I’ve been as excited for a drama as I am for MBC’s lookout. It has so many layers, is so edgy, and possibly outside the box — it could almost be a cable drama! Read more

Musical Monday – Not a Lot of Pay Off

Posted by SaraG on May 8, 2017

Music

It’s May. It’s no longer winter. This means that we should be done with the ballads and slow songs, we should be gearing up for summer dance songs and fun Kpoppy tunes. Maybe I’m just in a funk, but I struggled with this week’s releases. There was an abundance of ballads, a couple of R&B songs that were good but not what I wanted to be listening to, and some metal that, while fun, didn’t quite do it for me. There were some contributions along the lines of typical spring Kpop, but for the most part, they didn’t strike a chord with me either. Someone will love them, and I don’t blame them for that love, they just weren’t for me…too much reggae influence and maybe not quite enough of what I wanted to see specific collaborations doing (Sorry, Triple H, it just kind of eh and I really wanted it to be wow.)

Khottie of the Week

Hello everyone!  I’m back!  I missed you!  Though I did enjoy Stephanie back at the helm with her usual witty commentary.  A few weeks ago, I asked for some non-Korean suggestion for KotW and DBChen stepped up and gave me several names. Thank you, DBChen!  I especially love you this week. Gold star!

Show Notes

Is nitpicking a drama or movie being insensitive? If one has a platform to speak, should they be obligated to balance a line with an open mind and a civil tongue? Maybe. Do we do it? Well, what fun would that be? In this episode, we chat about that, plus newsy topics, comments on comments, and some fun Kpop news!

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Some People are Insanely Talented

Posted by SaraG on May 4, 2017

Music

There have always been people that look down on different genres of music because they find it, for whatever reason, less than. Lacking. Not smart enough. Not cool enough. Lame. Too mainstream. I admit that in my late teens and very early twenties, I was one of those people. I didn’t get pop music. Not really at all. I couldn’t understand how people could throw on the radio and just sing along with what came out. Why would you listen to Britney when there was Modest Mouse? In at least this one way, I have grown up. Pop music is awesome. I don’t have to like it to know it’s awesome. And not only that but not all pop music is the same. There are a million different influences and styles. So while I might not like a song, there are tons of other folks that do and we probably have a different pop song in common. So cheers for growth.

What’s Happening With… Kim Sun Ah?

Posted by Cherry Cordial on May 2, 2017

General

It’s been a while since we’ve had one of these, huh? Can’t say I’ve been curious about anyone as of late. There was a while I was toying with Lee Ji Ah, who was the lead in Me Too, Flower! but once I got to the research part and realized it was nothing…she’s doing nothing, I took a pass. Then got stuck. But last night, we were recording the podcast and she came up. What’s happening with Kim Sun Ah?
