An Ode to T.O.P

It’s about time that I get to writing about my bias (my true Korean boyfriend), T.O.P. I’ve been avoiding writing this article, because it’s almost like, where do I begin? That being said, T.O.P is an international treasure, and I can’t keep...

Seungri vs….???

I’ve shared this with a few people already, so if I’ve already showed you this, sorry….but, I want to have record of it on my blog for all time. I simply can’t get over it! This blog requires that you do 3 things, yes, 3 things, BUT, I promise...

CL the Missy Elliott of Kpop

I realized after looking at my blog, I’m severely lacking in girl power – but, to be honest, the dewey, doe-eyed, wilting flower style that reigns supreme in Korean pop culture simply doesn’t resonate with me (plus, with how androgynous a lot of the...

So, I’ve been watching a lot of anime lately, and I’ve also been spending a lot of time playing games I got during the Steam Summer Sale, so I apologize for my lack of posts recently. I promise, all of it is very important research/material for upcoming...

New Toys Tuesday – June 28th, 2016

After posting my hilariously controversial “reggae” article, I got into an interesting conversation about Korean dudes with dreads, and it inspired me to write an article about Team H. Team H is a musical duo featuring my first Korean boyfriend, Jang...

Am I crazy? Or…

…is it possible that Korean Reggae is actually decent? I ran across SKULL – who on many websites is described as South Korea’s lone reggae artist. Just writing that cracks me up. That being said, according to his Facebook page, SKULL is fresh off of...

One of the best Kdramas that I’ve seen is The Heirs – this show features Lee Min-Ho (previously from Boys Over Flowers), and Park Shin-Ye (previously from You’re Beautiful), that are both referenced in earlier posts on my blog. Since I was in San...

New Toys Tuesday – May 31st, 2016

Rain, also known as, Jung Ji-hoon is a Korean singer-songwriter, actor and producer. I stumbled across some of Rain’s music videos early on in my Korean adventures, and I’ve been a fan ever since. Born in 1982, he’s closer to my age, so I feel less...

New Toys…Sunday? May 22, 2016

I know I’ve been a little biased to BTS lately, ok maybe more than a little, but can you blame me? With BigBang between albums, and the prospect of T.O.P going into his mandatory military service, BTS is really stepping it up. Before you give me crap about it, I...

Boys Over Flowers

Boys Over Flowers

One of the first Kdramas I watched after finishing You’re Beautiful, was Boys Over Flowers. Once again, I picked it based off of the cover (the image above on the left). I guess, I’m obsessed with reverse-harem dramas – basically, dramas where there...

BTS – The Best Dancers in Kpop

I feel like I just have to mention that the Kpop group, BTS, are by far the best dancers in Kpop. While they are on the younger side, I can’t help but swoon every time I watch their videos. With unbelievable body control, I watch their videos and mentally...

Conan + Korea

Conan + Korea

Conan recently visited Korea, and basically, I’m so jealous. He’s posted tons of videos on youtube, and they’re just too funny not to share (at least a few), enjoy! Just a little extra note here, in the last video, Conan mentions one of the most...
