Will you be my Kpop Valentine?! I Love You Thiiiiiiiiiiis Much!
Remember when you were really, really young and sharing a birthday with a friend felt incredibly important…and then you got to be around ten and all of the sudden it sucked to have to share? Like somehow your special day was a little less special because it wasn’t just yours? Turns out that when you get to be in your thirties and you’ve found a soulmate with whom you share a birth month – not even the same day – is straight magical.
Now that I finally have a computer again, it’s time for something long overdue! An update to the LGBT drama/Movie pages! There were some things I could sneak and do on my work laptop, but the intense research needed to update those pages? Not one of them. (I’m not going to tell you the sites I find myself on while doing this, let’s just say a spritz of Holy water sprinkled on the laptop wouldn’t be a bad thing.
Since it’s been so long since we’ve had an update, I think you deserve a reward! A supersize update!
Just in case it isn’t obvious, not everyone in the Korean music scene, even if they are doing similar types of music, is an idol. And they don’t all want to be idols…despite the huge amount of pressure they must feel to conform. It can be a challenge to find some of these smaller gems, but when you do…when they are thrust upon you by the cosmos or KpopontheDL, you have to do everything you can to learn about them and support them.
If you are a stickler for rules and regulations you’ll know that I’m technically featuring this idol eight days ahead of his 24th birthday. BUT it’s SaraG’s birthday and sometimes you have to break the rules…especially for your Kbestie! Besides, I know the Kchat Jjigae head honcho is soft for this guy (and SaraG) so my guess is that she’ll let it slide. Read more
Sometimes I find that having less to do makes it hard to do anything. I’m only working three days this week and I seem to be having a difficult time getting anything accomplished. Everything feels like a lot more than it should. Even the personal stuff. Like writing this post. One way I combat that is, obviously, through music. I download a few playlists and turn them on in the background to help keep me focused. It drives my boss insane because she’s a quiet worker. I don’t understand quiet workers…how do they focus on just one task with their whole brain? It makes no sense.
I believe I’ve mentioned before that, ever since hearing about the premise for Should We Kiss First?, I’ve been on the lookout for it — ready and eager for it to hit my computer screen so I can settle in and watch some middle-aged romance. As a matter of fact, while researching this post, I was saddened to realize that the show doesn’t start until the end of the month rather than the 6th (ie today) as I had originally thought. What a blow, guys. Instead of watching the drama, I thought I’d check out the teaser I had found.
It was everything I want this show to be. Read more
I spent this weekend in New Orleans with some friends that I’ve known for many, many years. We literally circumnavigated the world together on a steamship in our very early twenties as part of a study abroad program. In four short months, we met, bonded intensely, fell in love, and became a part of the fabric of each other’s very different lives. We’ve danced around each other ever since – being a part of the big moments, but never really all occupying the same space at the same time. We made a point of rectifying that for four days that just so happen to fall very close to my birthday in a city built for just separating ourselves from reality and focusing on us.
I wish I could say it’s been cold enough in Denver to warrant this post but we’ve had an almost tropical winter so far. There’s been barely any snow in the city, which makes me sad but then I remember I have to shovel my sidewalks and I become a little less sad. Instead, this post is the result of moaning to Stephanie late one night about not having any ideas for khottie and her saying “you should do idols in sweaters.” And when your blog writing boss says do idols in sweaters you do idols in sweaters.
