Raise your hand if you have a sibling.

Now raise your hand if that sibling is a little brother.

I absolutely love when a company puts together a new group with a similar feel or concept as an existing group within the company and they call it the sister group or the brother group. Think Seventeen and Pristin. I don’t know why that tickles me, but I think it has something to do with the idea that the idols in these groups all have a solid, teasing relationship where they pick on each other but would also cut a man for putting them down. Like a built-in support system.

Something Rotten in the State of YG?

Posted by Stephanie on October 3, 2018

It’s always interesting to think of what news I’ll wake up to in the morning. And when I mean wake up, I mean wake up. With several east coast members of the nerd herd getting up before I do, and several of them on the west coast going to bed later, and SaraG who’s day starts before the sun rises, I usually end up waking to some sort of Kpop news. Some good. Some bad. Always interesting. (The Kpop nerd herd: the water cooler of kpop news.)

Then there are the days were your alarm turns on, you roll over, pick up your phone, open a link and bolt out of bed. The news that Epik High and YG have parted ways? Yep, this was one of those mornings.

Too Many Dramas, Not Enough Time

Posted by Stephanie on October 2, 2018

General

Is it just me or are the fall season of dramas on fire? There are so many new dramas to watch, which is pretty much par for the course, but what’s weird is that there are so many dramas I really want to watch! The question is what to choose?

I’ve been setting and reaching to more drama goals as of late and, while it’s too early to say I’ve gotten my watching mojo back, I think it’s on its way! I’m trying to stick to a first in first out rule, only watching one drama until I’ve completed it and then moving onto the next. It used to be a much faster process when my entire life was dramas, where I’d spend entire weekends on my couch marathoning drama after drama.

Oh, those were the days.  Read more

Musical Monday – Not Everybody Gets the Day Off

Has anyone noticed the almost complete halt in new releases in the Kpop world over the last couple of weeks? It makes sense, it was a holiday. Chuseok is a three-day autumn harvest festival held based on the lunar calendar each year in Korea. If you follow Kpop in any way on social media or through YouTube, you’ll have taken notice of Hanboks in every color, snacks and treats, family photos, and pics of celebrities doing volunteer work. It’s the time of year when everyone gets a few days off or focus on doing Vlives focused specifically on more traditional activities.

Show Notes

So, if you were around last week, you heard that Cherry was going to be away this week and left Stephanie to her own devices… podcast wise. So here it is, the first ever, solo podcast! Stephanie is talking… rambling… delving into some topics like Running Man, NCT 127, what are all the modern day classics like Coffee Prince, just which idols would make great Korean tutors, angsty Kpop, and possibly unmentionable thoughts regarding BT21 characters. Yeah. It’s a weird ride.

Khottie of the Week: Son Ho Jun

Khottie of the Week/ Music

My currently watching list is out of control. I’ve been in a phase since early this summer where I’ll start a drama, watch multiple episodes and then decide it’s time to look for a shiny new drama. Having 16 on the list wouldn’t be such as issue but there are a whole bunch of new dramas that either just started or will start this week that I’m very interested in watching. One of those is Terius Behind Me and given I’ve already watched the first four episodes I figured I should highlight the B lead for this week’s khottie and justify adding number 17 to the list.  Read more

Korea-bound

Super excited for this upcoming March? Why? Well, who doesn’t love mushy slush that instantly soaks your shoes as soon as you unavoidably step in it? Or leaving your house in the morning for work when it still looks like it’s the middle of the night? Or shoveling? Yeah, shoveling is great! While yes, my heart goes all soft inside thinking of mid-March, this year it’s for a different reason I’m so excited for it to come.

I’m going to Korea!  Read more

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Sparks

Posted by SaraG on September 27, 2018

Music

I admit it. Freely. I like pretty things. I love genuinely pretty songs that just have a good melody and a solid vocalist. I mean, I don’t love things just because they’re pretty, but that’s sometimes the thing that catches my eye or ear until I take a deeper dive and find that element that gets me hooked for good. Obviously, it’s some sort of evolutionary tool used to breed stronger, faster, more attractive songs so music can continue on into the future.

Sorry Not Sorry?

I’ll come right out and say, I haven’t seen this drama. I haven’t even actually heard of it before, however, when you see a headline, ““Hide And Seek” Apologizes For Controversial Public Bath Scene” you stop and take a look at what’s going on in Kdramaland now. Then you click off the article you just read go, ‘wait a minute’ and go back to it.

So if you’re also not aware of what happened, here’s the lowdown.  Read more
