My Favorite Korean Ballads of All Time

Hey all. I know it’s been a while. Yeah, I’ve been kinda busy lately. But these past 2 days I’ve been stranded here at home because of the shitty weather outside, so you know, I decided to post a little out of my list. Maybe i’ll post another one after this. IDK. Anyway, speaking of the shitty weather, it’s been raining and Manila is practically a reminiscent of Noah’s Arc (coincidentally the story of Noah’s Arc is 8:7-12 in the Bible, and today is 8-7-12). Because it’s so gloomy, I’ve been listening to my favorite ballads. And hey, I thought, why not share them with everyone?  Continue reading

The Top 5 Maknae of KPOP Idol Groups

20110916-102408.jpg

The title “Maknae” is pretty prestigious. Okay, not really. But it sure is important. Companies place a lot of importance in a group’s maknae because more often than not, the Maknae takes center stage after everyone stops staring at the face of the group (unless of course, the maknae is the face of the group lol). Oftentimes, Maknaes are the talented ones and the ones who fangirls fangirl and fanboys fanboy. In dorms, Maknaes are the ones the older members tend to boss around, but that’s only said for some and not all (some groups tend to fall prey under their maknae’s evil charms as well *ehemkyuhyunehem*) Continue reading

An Idol’s Enlistment

20110916-085801.jpg

Before anything else, I owe you all an explanation for not updating my blog for a month. Thought it’s not much of an excuse, it was mostly and almost entirely because it was Super Junior’s promotion month for Mr. Simple. I was too busy fangirling over them to talk about other things unrelated to my boys. LOL I apologize for being SJ-biased but I assure you I try my best to keep from being that when I talk about other artists.

Hence, I am here to share to you something that probably any other hardcore fan would experience at least at one point in her fangirl life– an idol’s enlistment to the army. Continue reading

110703 Freshly Baked Rookies- The Midyear Rookie Count (Dal Shabet, Rania, B1A4, A-Pink, Boyfriend and Brave Girls)

I think many would agree with me when I say that there are much too many Rookies who are debuting this year. Possibly, they have said, there are may be around a hundred more who will be debuting for the rest of 2011. It’s not something that I find appealing at all. For one thing, companies are forgeting these days that it’s better to have quality THAN quantity.

[UPDATED: 110609] Korean and KPOP Terminologies every TF (True Fan) should know

LOL @ THE MACRO ABOVE. Haha! WHEN ASIANS TRY TO BE ASIANS! LMAO. Okay, I’m done.

First and foremost, I do not advocate the use of Korean words in order to express ourselves as fans, but even I myself am sorely guilty of the crime of overusing them such as “Omo!” or “Aigoo…” or “YAH!” or most commonly “Oppa! Saranghaeyo! :””””>”. Now, the truth is, non-KPOP fans will never understand our need to use these words so often. Why? Because they haven’t been exposed long enough in the sunny rays of KPOP to unconsciously (and consciously) use these words. Plus, they find it annoying because it sounds weird when a non-Korean says it. “Nuff said. Continue reading
