Which, turns out, you can watch on Netflix!

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Still on the Stage

Posted by SaraG on November 7, 2019

Music

Gosh, I’ve been remiss in a big, bad way. I’ve mentioned Onewe on this site approximately 73 times and I’ve failed to actually write a post about them. Who does that??

Onewe is a five-member pop-rock band on RBW that debuted in May of 2019. But this tiny sentence tells you very little about who these gents are and their long history together. These five members actually first debuted together under the name M.A.S 0094 in 2015 and donated all of their profits to various charities, including those supporting comfort women. They made their official debut under the label Modern Music in August of that year and released two EPs on the label while also working as MAMAMOO’s session band for some live performances.

A Variety of Junsu

Posted by Stephanie on November 5, 2019

Casting News

While my acute Junsu obsession was a sad casualty to his military service, I still have a big soft spot for one of my first true Kloves. The story of JYJ and their struggles as they left SM was one of the biggest scandals of my early Kpop years. Remember those days? So innocent, not knowing that Kpop could reach in and rip out your still-beating heart. (Excuse me, I’m still processing Kpop 2019.) Which makes the news that Junsu has taped a pilot for a variety show for MBC, both big and nostalgic. Read more

Musical Monday – In Their Own Right

Posted by SaraG on November 4, 2019

Music

When Big Hit announced that they were going to be putting together a new group – a boy group at that – I was both pleased as punch and a bit hesitant. It wasn’t that their stable of trainees was in any way lacking or that I wasn’t sure they’d do a wonderful job with the chemistry between the members or making sure they were prepared for worldwide stardom. If any label has familiarity with this kind of pressure on their artists, it’s Big Hit. What I was concerned about was the fervor of BTS fans both elevating them before they were ready while also lashing out at them for the very fact that they aren’t BTS.

Khottie of the Week: Lee Tae Min

Posted by Alix on November 3, 2019

Khottie of the Week

Today’s post is a combination of yesterday being Stephanie’s birthday (WOOT!) and, also, in 10 days I will be in Chicago to see SuperM (WOOT!). My excitement for SuperM has been mainly due to Mark…and the other NCT members…and the EXO duo… the debate over which lightstick to bring (NCT or EXO) has been a constant ever since we bought the tickets. I was not at all familiar with Taemin, other than knowing him as a member of SHINee. They were a group that was before my time, so to speak, but I am thoroughly enjoying being introduced through SuperM. Read more

It’s one of our favorite holidays! Ever wonder what Kstar you would go trick-or-treating with? Ponder what SM artist you’d tag along with to the SM halloween bash? Contemplate who would be the very best partner to run a haunted house with? Did you look at that rapidly dwindling candy bowl and wonder, just what idol reminds you of candy corn? We do, so we did!

Throwback (Spooky) Thursday – Let the Holiday Season Begin

Posted by SaraG on October 31, 2019

Music

As today dawned, we officially kicked off the holiday season in Kpop land. What I mean by this is that Kpop loves the theatrical and any reason to dress up or theme something out like crazy and the holidays – be they Halloween or Christmas – are the perfect time to do just that. Their world is a stage and they love any excuse to make it over the top. The companies also really, really like to bring in the money and are exceptionally good at making and marketing new schwag to tempt us into paying high prices for basically anything that might make our little hearts squeeze just a tiny bit. And I don’t hate it. 

I mean, I hate not being able to get my paws on everything, but I don’t hate that they’re putting it out there. It’s a business, my friends, and we are the customers.

Don’t Fall For Those Lies Within

Posted by Stephanie on October 30, 2019

Reviews

A couple of weeks ago I talked about a drama called Lee Min Ki’s New Show. Some people might call this The Lies Within, but some people also like olives on their pizza …ie some people can be wrong. At the end of a post where I got more and more excited about the show and swore to watch it as soon as I signed off. From there I’m sure you rolled your eyes and said, “Sure Stephanie, pull the other one, you big fat liar.” To which I nod and have to, sadly, agree with you. 

This time though?  I signed off on the post, parked my butt on the couch, cursed as I tried to get the Roku to work with my wireless headphones, and then proceeded to watch the first two episodes! Take that, I’m a liar no more! 

….this time. Read more

The Mysterious Case of Season 2

Posted by Stephanie on October 29, 2019

Casting News

As much as I want to make this post about my excitement of the teaser poster for Kingdom 2 being released, I can’t. Though I am just that excited for the continuation of this excellent series, the only news we have is a teaser poster. Not even a teaser video. So, I’m going to be mature and move on. 

In other season 2 news, while I didn’t watch the first season of the Netflix variety show Busted, I know a few people who did and those few people are very excited that season 2 is only weeks away. 

Or a week and a half which could be weeks or week depending on how you choose to round.  Read more

Musical Monday – Everyone Needs a Squad

Posted by SaraG on October 28, 2019

Music

For those keeping up with all of the comebacks this month, I applaud you. Even with my calendar notes and obsessive scrolling, I know I’ve missed things. I know because people are sending them to me and I’m at a loss when I realize my oversite. At least I’m getting the big ones. The big ones for me anyway. One of those, however, isn’t quite the same as the others – as in it’s got a new track, but for the most part, it’s the re-release of their debut EP as the Japanese version. Not terribly exciting except for the fact that I’m pretty sure this group is gonna be killer and everyone is going to fall all over themselves for them in fairly short order.
