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

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!

Fun Friday: Anti Anxiety Medication

22 Aug

I’m feeling really stressed guys and I’m wondering just how long I can blame jett-lag for my irritation/random crankiness. So here is post of things which make me happy and will hopefully bring that real world stress level down.

It was just announced that Epik High is coming out with a new album ‘soon’.

KCON 2014 Special: Dramabeans, Live!

16 Aug

20140810_142237

Concerts weren’t the only things that happened during KCON! I wasn’t the only one on a panel–I had a major Kdrama blogging fangirl moment when I was able to go to the Dramabeans panel called “Why Do Dramas Do That?”. It was so weird seeing these illusive creatures who I enjoy and look up to in person. And as Kdrama fans, you’ll be happy to know, that Javabeans and Girl Friday are just as smart and funny in person. And I wasn’t the only one who had been looking forward to their panel, the largest panel tent was packed with fans, even some of them sitting around the edges of the tent, looking in.

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.

Incoming KCON/KPOP Awesomeness!

11 Aug

As we speak, Cherry Cordial and I are in the same room on our computers working on my photos from KCON. Guys. Seriously. Guys. I bought a new camera and we got some AMAZING shots–so we’re taking some extra time to make them perfect. Here is a sample as to what’s to come:

KCON OR BUST

8 Aug

kcon2

This is it! The time is neigh. KCON or bust. As you read this I will officially be on a plane flying from one end of the country to another–with a quick stop in Chicago to pick up my traveling companion Kate–then it’s LA bound, where, in a few hours, Cherry Cordial and the Mystical Being of Unicorns will hopefully be at the airport, ready to pick us up. I can’t believe I’m going to be meeting Cherry Cordial for the first time! Continue reading

Musical Monday: The B1A4 Edition

2 Aug

B1A4 2The last time Cherry Cordial and I were filming the podcast, she pushed pretty hard for our warm up song to be something, anything from B1A4, but I didn’t think I really liked anything by them, so she was overruled. (Not that I’m the boss of Cherry Cordial, she’s just very ‘cordial’ about compromising.) However, looking at it, I’m not entirely certain I gave them an honest chance. Continue reading
