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

Loving a Band

“Loving a band with all your heart is something you only understand when it happens to you. On the surface, others can see it as a petty obsession, but they’ll just never know the feeling of putting so much faith into a few people on the other side of the world. It’s hard to explain it to them, the listening to song after song on repeat, the waits for new albums, the excitement and surreal sensation when you finally see them live. They don’t seem to understand why the lyrics booklets give you a sense of comfort, or why you paste photos of them all over your bedroom walls. And they can’t understand why one band could matter to you so much. And you think to yourself ‘Because they saved my life.’ But you say nothing, they wouldn’t understand.”

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.

KPOP Non-IDOL Songs Worth Listening To (PART ONE)

Basically if you think about KPOP, the first thing that will pop into your mind will be IDOLS (or chocolate abs hihi :”>) because they rule the scene with their amazing dance moves, catchy and upbeat music and beautiful people. But you know, there really are a lot of groups/ solo singers out there that are REALLY talented. The only problem is that people these days are so stuck on Idol music that these talented acts do not get enough of the spotlight they deserve. Continue reading

[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
