Still2Gether Poster

Guys. I don’t know if you realize just how excited I am for the upcoming Still2Gether. Apparently properly pronounced Still2Gether and not Still 2Gether. Huh.

That aside? SQUEEE!

Zombie Detective?

Posted by Stephanie on August 11, 2020

Does the idea of a Zombie detective give you pause? Think it couldn’t be plausible? Think Kdrama has gone too far? Well. Step back, this is also the land that brought us vampire prosecutors and vampire doctors. I guess it was only a matter of time before zombies got their time in the spotlight.

Actually, with the popularity of the zombie movies going on right now (#Alive and Penninsula) and Netflix’s Kingdom series everything’s currently coming up zombies.

And I’m so excited. Read more

Musical Monday – Cinematic

My spouse is a total nerd. That’s not a judgment, it’s a fact and one that he would fully agree with. The man loves Tolkein and Star Wars and is part of not one, but two long-running D&D groups. I fully support his relationship with the fantastical because what is my love of Kpop if not a rich and time-consuming fantasy. His nerd buddies, spanning multiple states and countries, are smart and interesting people who have forged close friendships outside of their characters and unfolding adventures. They chat back and forth all day long on their texting platform of choice and send funny memes and pretty pictures to each other to prompt laughs and encouragement when life gets tricky.

Sound familiar? Huh, #Klife friends?

Khottie of the Week: WOW! Or Wow From A.C.E

Posted by Stephanie on August 9, 2020

Khottie of the Week

After the raging success of last week’s faux Kpop School lesson of A.C.E’s Jun (only one wrong pic!) I’ve decided to plow forward and continue my faux schooling with WOW from A.C.E. Can we beat last week’s track record? I’m cautiously un-optimistic.

Let School Begin. Read more

GagaOOLala and New LBGT Adds

Posted by Stephanie on August 8, 2020

GAGAOOLALA!! Are you an LGBT/BL content fan? Well according to my stats, if you’re on this site, you absolutely are. One of my most often asked via comment or email question is where do you watch these shows? My first answer is, well, I don’t. Not all of them at least. When I started the LGBT pages, it was more of a helpful exercise. A few years ago, as I was hunting down options to watch there just wasn’t a lot of resources. I’d think I’d find a new one, realized I’d seen it, sigh and move on. People would ask me for good shows to watch after I talked about them on the podcast. (As it took a while to come out as a BL lover here on the site.) I started the list, which then grew into their own pages, in an attempt to put into one place an index of movie/show possibilities and, if I had seen it, I put a comment as to whether I thought it was worth a look.

And they took off from there.

But there was that question again, and again, and again. Where can you watch these? Well, luckily, now with the rising popularity of the genre, it’s getting easier. Several production companies got really smart and are subbing and releasing their own copies on LineTV or Youtube. Viki and Netflix have even picked up a few! There are the ahem, not quite legal sites out there, that I don’t even like to name as I don’t want to take the chance my site will get linked with them in any way. Now though, now there is a new kid on the streaming block, GagaOoLala, or as I delightfully describe it to people as… super gay Viki. Read more

Episode: 245 Tipsy With SaraG – Nu’est School

Posted by Stephanie on August 7, 2020

KPop School/ Podcast

This episode, Stephanie and special guest SaraG drink and talk about Nu’est. Okay. After editing, Stephanie realized though most of the podcast it was just her who was still actively drinking. It happened. What else happened? They finally do the greatly anticipated (by them) podcast where they talk bout the inception, rise, fall, and rise again of Nu’est. We also attempt to talk about the importance of multifandom, but turns out? That part is being broken off for its own episode.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – One More for Team XX

Posted by SaraG on August 6, 2020

Music

After watching Jesse’s latest MV this week, I was a little inspired to look into the back catalog of some of the strong female rappers in the Korean hip hop scene. Much like the more masculine side of the industry, there are plenty of idol rappers in girl groups that are well trained, extremely talented, and fun to watch. But unlike the dudes, it’s a little trickier to find the true to form crazy cool female rappers. We’re seeing labels like AOMG and H1ghr pick up more and more ladies on their roster, but it’s still very much a male-dominated niche.

Khottie of the Week: Jun from A.C.E

Posted by Stephanie on August 3, 2020

Khottie of the Week

A couple of weeks ago, while social distance gathered, SaraG asked me if there were any groups I wanted to learn, anyone who was tickling my fancy. As its been a hot minute since I’ve learned a new group. (Officially, the last Kpop School was Oneus over Christmas, but  since then I’ve met and fallen in love with Nu’est in a non-official capacity… think of them as my after school elective.) One whicfh has been floating around my brain is A.C.E after their last year’s song Savage hit my top 50 list. After perusing the Khottie possibilities I just so happened to see a whole bunch of A.C.E members who are sitting there waiting. And if you’re going to start, you might as well begin at the top with the leader. In this case, Jun. Jun from A.C.E.

Musical Monday – Escaping the Fold

Posted by SaraG on August 3, 2020

Music

It seems like I’ve written quite a few posts like this in the last few years…artists we love, or would love if given the chance, escaping from the basements of big labels without the cash flow to really promote everyone on their roster. YG, in particular, has seen quite the exodus following their ongoing dust-ups with the law. But I haven’t seen anyone have quite as much fun with her change in management as Lee Hi.
