EPIK BTS HIGH

9 Apr

Hellz Yeah, Epik High Is Coming! epik high

Was my first thought. It’s no surprise here that I’m a giant Epik High fan and most especially a Tablo fan and the idea of being in the same room as them while they sing in my general direction? Total Kfan swoon. Even now, thinking of them give me a bit of goosebumps. (But that could be the optimistically opened window.)

So what puts a frownyface on this awesome news?  Continue reading

Crazy For Kdrama Podcast Episode 22: Cozy, Cozy Kdrama

1 Apr

We had some fun this episode — or at least we laughed a lot. Although, how that’s different from any other episode? I’m not really sure.

Show Notes
In this episode we do lots of stuff, so just listen. Just kidding! After chatting about news, what we’re watching, and how Roommate has been letting us down of late, we answer Kdrama-related questions, which have us coming almost to blows over the epic question “Super Junior or Big Bang?” and wondering which Kdrama heroine we would most want to be. Then we move over to talking about comfort watches, dramas that are our go to’s if we are sick or just want to be cheered up.

Musical Monday: The Rap Monster Edition

23 Mar

rapmonGAH! Is it just me or has March been a really, really good month for music? I didn’t think I oculd get more excited than with Junsu and MFBTY both having music releases, but with this my mind just goes *POP*.

I love BTS, and within the group my favorite, hands down is Rap Monster. We got a special surprise with him guesting on MFBTY’s new album, but here? It’s pure Rap Monster all by his lonesome.

And he does not disappoint. Continue reading

Crazy For Kdrama Podcast Episode 21: Holy Holograms, Kdrama!

18 Mar

Woot! We thought for sure this episode was going to be a day late because we were really late in recording it. But thanks to the speedup button (yes, I listen to us in chipmunk voices while editing) I was able to get it edited in record time. [Cherry: Go, Stephanie, with your awesome editing skillz!]

Show Notes
In today’s episode, we talk about changing the way we watch Kdrama and vow to start simulcasting more by looking through a lot of the upcoming dramas, we squeee about random kpop news, and wonder who would pay to watch a hologram GDragon. Meandering, we brush on body size in Korean entertainment and the possible end of our love of Roommate.

MFBTY IS COMING BACK!

12 Mar

MFBTY

Guys. Seriously. Guys! I’d actually given up on one of my favorite bands, MFBTY ever coming back. And if they hadn’t I would have completely understood as they are a project band made by TigerJK, Yoon MiRae, and Bizzy. They are busy, busy people and they did come out with another release under the Drunken Tiger name.  I’d figured they’d just…let it go.

But I was wrong!! Continue reading

Crazy for Kdrama Podcast Episode 13: Kpop Wishes and Kdrama Dreams

19 Nov

Thirteen? Is it unlucky thirteen? We certainly hope not! In response to a voicemail, Cherry and I try to disagree more — or maybe that was just me — and just wait until you hear how many dramas I made my way through the last two weeks.

NO JUDGEMENTS!

Musical Monday: The BTS Edition

17 Nov

WHY? Why is BTS so young?? Watching their newest video (thanks Cherry) with their harder sound, driving drum beat, snarls, and swagger, I find them to be…alluring. Very alluring.

And now I’m embarrassed–thanks, BTS.

I love these guys so freaking hard! I love this video, they styling, the dancing, but most especially, how they started with each member coming in to join the dance. I’m not sure why I hadn’t listened to their newest release yet, as they have yet to disappoint me in any of their music. I continue to be afraid that they will pull a B.A.P on me and will fiddle with their sound, possibly, *horrors* catching a case of aegyo. However, I should have mBTS 2ore faith in BTS, more faith in their leader, Rap Monster, and his underground rap roots. Continue reading

KCon 2014 Concert Special: Jung Joon Young

26 Aug

JUNG JOON YOUNG KCON IMG_0530

Another band–or singer–I didn’t really know much about before headed into Kcon. I’d breezed past a few of his songs and had affectionately dubbed him “the rocker kid”. Which pretty much sums him up–a nice looking young man who isn’t so much kpop by the way that CNblue isn’t that Kpop. He plays the guitar while belting out a lightly harder sound.

My group was lucky enough to be all win tickets to be in the audience at the signing, so we were able to get some photos of him, and listen to him awkwardly chat with the host of the event.joonjungyoung kcon
We learned that he has a tattoo on his arm that is from Hedwig and the Angry Inch, although he assured us “I’m not gay.” As I like the idea of that tattoo as well, and had once considered it for my own skin before thankfully realizing I’m not the tattoo type, I completely understand his choice.

We did not stick around to see the signing or the high touch–as why stand around wasting time being jealous of others? We had things to do!

Back to the concert. I really liked the sound of his music, and we learned he is a Michael Jackson fan, as he decided to end his set with a rendition of Black and White, complete with MJ-esque dance moves, and a duet with Rap Monster from BTS, resplendent in an all white suit (which went with JJY’s all black ensemble.)

it was a pretty great moment.

I will be pretty excited to see just what this guy comes out with during his career, you know since he is just starting.

Another winner from one of those music shows, which has pulled out the likes of Akdong Musicians, LeeHi, and Roy Kim, I’m sure he’s headed for big things (and not just the Khottie list…)JUNG JOON YOUNG KCON IMG_0536

Here is are some of the songs from his set–if you watch anything, watch that cover–it is a hoot!

My Hero, Molly Who Saved CNBlue

15 Aug
mollyIf you listen to the podcast, you’ve probably already listened to this story, but since podcasts are not everyone’s cup of tea, and this story is just so awesome, it’s coming in again. I’d like you to meet my friend Molly. Molly, is a superhero. Not kidding, a real life super hero who saved my whole concert experience.
Molly is a brand new addition to the kdrama/kpop world, and she has fallen hard. Super hard. From zero to addict in approximately 3 minutes. Molly is actually a friend of Cherry’s and when she learned we were going to KCON, it didn’t take much (or any) arm twisting to get her to agree to join us. In the days leading up to it, we were mostly excited for CNBLue, BTS, and then of course GDragon. But the main one we all agreed on was CNBlue as, I don’t know if you’re a fan of CNBlue, but here’s the thing, they are good on albums, but when you go to see them live, they take their songs and ROCK OUT. It’s almost like a completely different experience and is amazing.

Another on the long list of cool things there are to do in NYC, my friend Mari runs a Kpop dance class and she clued me in that they were doing a guerrilla type performance in Central Park.
