New Toys Tuesday: Yoon Jong-Shin

New Toys Tuesday: Yoon Jong-Shin

One of my favorite things to do is let myself go down the rabbit hole on YouTube – especially when I’m looking for new and fresh jams. This week, I found a particularly talented artist called Yoon Jong-Shin, who doesn’t seem to have a set musical style at...

Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma

Note from Bea – this article is 100% Spoiler Free! Is anyone else dying to watch the next episode of Food Wars!? Because I got on the anime train later than most, I’ve had the luxury of binge watching most anime series from beginning to end. I did that...

Gogol Bordello + ’90s Punk = Crying Nut

Whether you’re into Gogol Bordello, or if you ever listened to punk music in high school (maybe you still do, I do…), the Korean punk band Crying Nut is a great and refreshing way to revisit the genre. Crying Nut originally became active in the early...

Shirataki – Noodles from the Gods

Shirataki – Noodles from the Gods

Basically, if you don’t know about Shirataki noodles, you need to. I use them all the time as a pasta substitute, and they really come in handy if you want a pasta dish, but don’t want the bloat (or carbs) that come with them. Shirataki noodles are thin,...

An Ode to T.O.P

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...

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...

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...

Work From Home – With and Without Music

Work From Home – With and Without Music

This song is constantly on the radio right now – for better, or worse… But, I found an edited version of this video without the music. I’ve often wondered how awkward it must be to be on set while making a music video or movie, without the sound and...

Am I crazy? Or…

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...

The Heirs

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...
