It’s official, 2017 is going to be a hell of a year for losing biases to the military. First, it was Junsu and T.O.P, then it was Seo In Guk, (although the military was fast to spit him back out at us), Lee Min Ho is rumored to be going this year and now? Now it’s Joo Won. Read more
You know…as bad guys do.
Turns out Bad Guys is totally a thing. No longer a rumor, but an actual show with a new title and everything. It is such exciting news that when I read the news on break at work, I literally whoo-ed. Out loud. And my work is not a place you woohoo. I’m pretty sure it’s in the employee handbook.
So, we should be excited. Right? Well… Read more
Unlike my husband who has a home office in the basement where he can play Overwatch (I assume on a team with VIXX’s Hongbin and Monsta X’s Kihyun) with his door closed, my home computer is in the main living area of the house. That means when I’m perusing new music everyone is there to put in their two cents. Everyone. For better or for worse.
They all have opinions.
Ready for a walk on the wild side? I’d heard of Miyavi, and even seen a good handful of pictures, but my scope of vision has been crowded with the never ending stream of Kpop idols the last few years so I hadn’t really dug into him. Well, Stephanie is going to see him in concert and she sent me a gif. Read more
Episode 99: WEHEARTBTS! The BTS Concert Chat
Find it Here
It’s no surprise to anyone listening that we are big-fat-BTS fangirls. In this episode, we have special guests Regina, Alexis, and SaraG with us to do a whole BTS concert breakdown — and if you think Cherry and Stephanie can get sidetracked — just wait until there are five of us! This episode will be marked as explicit, but it’s just for some salty language.
There is definitely a certain type of song that gets me all emotion…like totally emo. We’ve all heard them, I’ve put a few of them up here or mentioned them in passing or forced them onto many of you in one way or another. But sometimes I stumble across a song from out of nowhere and it changes the game. I hear the first few notes and think, “Eh, it’s alright, but not my thing.” And then…then, something happens. A certain feel, a set of lyrics, a voice crack at just the right moment, and WHAM I’m feeling it so much it’s almost hard to breathe. I collect these songs on a playlist I call flutter…because they make my little heart palpitate. The playlist is a hodgepodge of songs that all mean something to me, either from a specific moment in my life or just in general. It includes songs from all over the world and in a few different languages. I love it and I hate it. It makes me feel things and I go back to it over and over and over.
Isn’t there part of you that just wishes they would let this show die? That perhaps, that maybe, just maybe, when the cast got together and decided after Jongkook and Ji Hyo were fired to just end the show — that they shouldn’t have allowed themselves into being talked into continuing on? Read more
Just a few short weeks ago I was having a conversation, as I am want to do, with one of my fine text-a-friends about how saturated we feel with the number of quality Kpop artists out there to fall in love with. The conclusion drawn was that our little brains could not possibly handle a single more bias nor any new faces to learn or names to memorize. And then said friend (ahem – KpopontheDL) sent me a new video that she just knew I would enjoy and our resolve crumbled from there. Turns out, love is definitely infinite and I always manage to find more capacity to shower it onto new little baby idols.
Or un-debuted trainees.
Hello my loves! Corinne reminded me, with her contribution of Raina to last week’s Khottie, that I haven’t highlighted any women lately. So while thinking about that, I remembered that I promised to cover several of the gorgeous, powerful, female rappers that the Korean music scene has provided us. The same rules apply for my selection of the lady artists as did with the gentlemen – They can’t be part of a group. They have to be solo, part of a duo, or crew. And I have to find them hot. So, in no particular order, let’s get to it.
Stephanie would give you a reporting on her BTS experience but she’s dead. Totes dead. Killed by Kpop. Time of death, Friday, March 24th, approximately 8.30 pm. She died happy. May God have mercy on her pervy noona soul. Read more
