Waiting for SJ Teaser
(for the record SJ = boyband of choice and my top Kpop fandom) enjoy this while waiting:
My new found respect for 2NE1
2NE1 just released “Ugly” today and after reading the translation literally I must admit I was disappointed. I am a very literal person I don’t like to dig around and run in circles for things that I feel should be obvious. After stepping back and going “maybe it’s not meant to be taken literally,” my respect for 2NE1 sky rocketed. After sitting back and...
Goodbye Baby Goodbye [Korean Lesson]
Oh my gosh, this song is a lot better than I thought it was going to be. I am going to make no secret of the fact I’m not exactly a JY ENT fan. I tried and I failed, however, Jia and orange hair, along with this song, may make me a Say A very, very soon. Miss A -Goodbye Baby This song is so addictive! So I decided I want to pick apart some Korean from their interview with Naver. ...
Album to Avoid: W&Whale - "Circus"
Before I duck and hide from the rocks that I am sure will be thrown at me for saying to avoid anything W&Whale…please at least read my review. Do know that I’m not saying the band is bad…I’m saying this particular piece of work by them is avoid-worthy. I didn’t purposely pick this mini-album to blast it. On the contrary, I picked this group because they fit...

Music You Might Have Missed: Rumble Fish - I love...
Have you ever had the feeling of regret after listening to something for the first time and it’s like “why didn’t I get into this band sooner?” This is that song. I’ve heard of Rumble Fish but I never checked them out and this was my first time listening to anything by them…or should I say her. Rumble Fish used to be an actual band-band but all of the...
Dear Kpop Fans: Stop Feeding the Trolls
Please allow me to stand on my soap box for a moment, thank you. Remember this blog is also for my Korea related thoughts. Little annoys me more on the internet than the out-right troll feeding that takes place in anything related to Korean pop culture. Kpop fans WILL always take the bait. This seems to be a without fail fact. Then they [Kpop fans] will make comments just as hateful...
Music You Might Have Missed: Harasora - It's You
I have made it a personal mission to listen to artists that aren’t as well known as the obvious idols. Welcome to a new section titled “Music You Might Have Missed”. Hopefully, everyone’s knowledge of the Kpop scene will grow. Korean Title: 바로 너야 (Feat. 로라) Translation: It’s You (Feat. Lora) Side Note: Google translate puts it as “You’re the...
Bubble Pop! Yes or No?
Bubble bubble pop! Warning: Contains the word slut…more than once. For me: Yes. Bubble Pop is a catchy, fun song that I have had on repeat since it came out. I’m in love with this song. In fact mini album review coming soon. :) The cons… …it has kpop fans all riled up with the slut shaming even though she does nothing too off the wall. There was a couple of...
This is why I started the Kpop in Japan Round Up
Various Korean news portals are reporting Kim Hyun Joong has ranked first on the Oricon foreign album charts above the likes of Lady Gaga and Beyonce. 김현중, 日서 레이디가가-비욘세 제쳤다 Kim Hyun Joong, beats out Lady Gaga - Beyonce. This isn’t the case. Proof: http://www.oricon.co.jp/rank/wa/w/ He ranks 4th after both Gaga and Beyonce. Please remember to take news about Kpop in Japan from...

Bonjour à tous!
Hello everyone! I’ve been off enjoying summer, and you? I hope things are going well! Side note: I had a really long post full of all my favorite songs for the summer originally but when I hit the enter button it deleted the whole post! I’m kind of angry needless to say. I’ll remake the post but do know that this was originally that post.
