Show Notes

When you’re listening to this episode and you realize, wow, Stephanie’s been talking about dramas for a really long time, then Stephanie apologizes for watching so many dramas, you realize, this is definitely going to be a two-parter. And you’re right. Much like the ending of My Engineer, you’re going to come to the end of this podcast and realize… oh, that’s not the end.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday: Playing With Fire

Music

Yup, I’m going with the girl group angle on this one. If any of you have read earlier posts you’ll be aware of my lack of interest in girl groups. It’s not dislike, it’s just I’m not interested in spending my little time for #klife on girl groups. So finding and writing about today’s song has been an interesting challenge!  Read more

2Gether The Series: The Ending We Deserve?

2Gether: The Series posterIt’s no secret I’m a huge fan of the BL series. If you listen to the podcast at all, you’ll know the most recent series, 2Gether: The Series, spoke to my heart like few shows have. It just made me happy to watch it. I’d go through each episode with blissful sighs, a wide grin, and hands over my heart. Yes, it made me that happy. Unfortunately though? The ending left me a little…wanting. Possibly though? We have a chance for a do-over.

This both excites and terrifies me. Read more

Musical Monday – No Chemical Reaction

There really aren’t enough adjectives to accurately describe kpop groups and idols. I mean, how many times can you say ‘he’s gorgeous!’ or ‘She’s stunning,’ when trying to differentiate between members of the same group? I’ve tried to have a solid conversation saying things like ‘he has the voice of an angel’ and ‘she’s so insanely talented,’ but those statements are somewhat meaningless when they can be used to describe nearly all of the artists we get all swoony over. Knowing this, recognizing the sheer breadth and depth of beauty and skill in the industry, I am flabbergasted that we are ever able to choose favorites – that we can bias groups let alone members. 

What is it about some groups that connect with us as individuals while others just don’t make the cut?

Stay At Home Saturday: The Rose – We Rose You Tour

Posted by Stephanie on May 31, 2020

Remember those times we used to go to concerts? Remember those times before the most exciting thing we did was to strap on the mask and head to the market? This Stay At Home Saturday is about the time I threw caution to the air, chucked aside the budget, and decided to fly to LA to take my friend Molly to The Rose’s We Rose You concert tour. This post is the result of such frivolity.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday: Kick-Ass Boots

When I write ramblings for a post it’s all about finding the angle or the story that goes with the choice of song. Often a song will inspire some thought or I’ll love the sound so much I’ll make something work. But sometimes it’s a struggle to find a connection and then you’re left somewhat hanging and grasping at anything you can say about the song or artist. It’s not that I don’t like today’s song, it’s just that I would rather tell you everything and anything about Lucy…the dog and the band.  Read more

Kpop Workout Week Six: Idol Workout? Idle Workout?

Kpop Idol Workout

I’m a creature of habit. Once I find something I like, I do it to death until I’m bored with it…and then I’ll do it some more because I don’t really know what to do with myself. This weeks Kpop Idol Workout isn’t much different.

Slow and steady I’m seeing results of the IF and daily workouts. I’ve gotten to the point where both are (painful) second nature to me. I was going to allow myself the day off on Monday as it was a holiday….and yet there I was, rolling back my ridiculous rug in order to do a workout. I wish I could say the pounds are melting off, but they’re not. However, they are, pound by pound, starting to leak away about 1-1.5 pounds a week. I’m officially down 6 pounds, which means I have about 4 more to go before I reach my second goal, losing what I gained after my Korea trip. (My first goal being: lose the 5ish pounds of Covid weight.)

Which means…as much as I want that mid-period container of chocolate ice cream and a sit on the couch, I’m going to go with the sugar-free chocolate pudding and do 45-minute workout. Because habit. Read more

Currently Binge-Watching ALL the Asian Dramas

Posted by Stephanie on May 26, 2020

Mystic Pop Up TentI’ve been binge-watching so many dramas guys. I can’t even just say Chinese dramas or Kdramas or even just BLs.  I’m not even sure how it happened. Actually. It’s probably the furlough. I want to be thankful for it and yet… I’ve been packing my days with all of the things I need to get done during the day, working the hours I have on schedule, working the hours on my Salesforce Admin certification, (Anyone else out there working or have that? Let’s chat!), doing my workouts, cleaning the house, and website work…I jam my days full! Which leaves those evenings, normally packed by those same things, freer! Somehow, I’ve decided it’s okay to just sit there and watch TV. Like the old days. Frankly, it’s weirding me out.

Like the good old days of Crazy For Kdrama, lets take a look at all I’m watching! Read more
