Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Best Laid Plans

Posted by SaraG on September 24, 2020


Speaking of groups – because I was speaking of groups on Monday – that didn’t catch me on the first go-round but have completely won me over as a solid presence in my musical life, let’s chat about SF9. Or specifically about SF9 biases. Over the course of the summer, Alix was working diligently to see if Stephanie had any chemistry with this nine-member group and trying to coax her into the Fantasy life. Knowing that I’ve spent time with them, getting to know the members passibly well over the years in support of her love, she recruited me to the game.

Daebak Real Estate!

Casting News

Daebak Real EstateI want to say I’m excited over the potential casting of this upcoming drama, but that would be a lie. Really? I just love the title. DAEBAK Real Estate. Number 1) it rolls off the tongue… Daebak Real Estate Number 2) The idea that someone would name their real estate agency the Awesome Real Estate just tickles me. Can you imagine looking for a listing for your new agent, and going, “Daebak! Awesome Real Estate is the one!”

It’s the little things people. Read more

Musical Monday – It’s Really Not That Bad

Posted by SaraG on September 21, 2020


Clearly, there were no bad ideas in the creation of this subunit and their music. I don’t even have anything quippy to say about it and how it relates to something going on in my life. But I feel compelled to make sure everyone has taken a listen. It’s just really well executed and pretty darned hot. Thank you Moonbin and Sanha for your hard work during these difficult times – you made 2020 just a little bit better.

Khottie of the Week: Yeo One of Pentagon

Posted by Stephanie on September 19, 2020

Khottie of the Week

After weeks and weeks of khotties laid out before me during my A.C.E rabbit hole, it was hard to choose who we were going to focus on next. Bringing it up to our previous Khottie cataloger, Alix, she mentioned she thought Yeo One of Pentagon had had a birthday, thereby making him Khottie eligible. A quick google search later, she’s right! ‘Sup, Yeo One of Pentagon, you ready to be a Khottie? Read more

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Contests In Which We All Win

Posted by SaraG on September 17, 2020



In February of this year, I took the opportunity to wax a bit poetic about one of my favorite groups, OnlyOneOf, and their digital single dOra maar, You might remember that I was – and still am – completely entranced by the romanticism of the vocals, by the choreo, and by the music itself. I took the time to read through the translated lyrics and to really sit in the heavy emotions the song brings out in me. It is, without a doubt, one of my favorite songs of this year if not my actual #1 fav song. 

And I don’t choose favorites like that.

Coffee Prince: Revisited

Posted by Stephanie on September 15, 2020


Coffee PrinceAs kdrama fans, you have all seen Coffee Prince. Or, you should have all seen Coffee Prince as its one of those shows which became an instant classic. (Seriously, if you’re a kdrama fan and you HAVEN’T seen it? What are you doing here? Go watch and come back. Its like a fandom responsibility at this point, one we take very seriously.) Who doesn’t remember the scene where he proclaims his love, not caring if she were a man, woman, or alien? Swoon. We will never forget that.

And in an upcoming documentary? The original cast shows how they can’t forget it either. Read more

Musical Monday – Who Dis?

Posted by SaraG on September 14, 2020


When you first start to get into Kpop and then expand into the wider Korean music scene it can be incredibly daunting. It feels like there are a million artists, producers, and content creators to familiarize yourself with. There are seemingly countless names and faces to remember and relationships to decipher. But the longer you hang around, the more you begin to realize that sometimes the same artist has a few names over the course of their career and that everyone knows each other and works together. It’s a much smaller world than it initially appears.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Foundation Building

Posted by SaraG on September 10, 2020



School started for our household this week and while virtual, the kiddos are falling into something of a routine less reliant on YouTube videos about historical fashion for Thing One and video games for Thing Two. It’s nice to see and it’s good for them to start getting even a taste of something somewhat normal. Normal is good. Normal feels comforting and comfortable. And normal for me includes getting to see friends and watch Kpop. While I’m not yet ready for full on Friday nights with more than a couple of folks at my house and while we’re still reliant on distancing outside rather than being huddled on my giant basement couch, I’m getting to stretch my extrovert wings more and more.
