This year blows. No doubt about it. No way around it. I’m sure many of you are experiencing very different holidays from what you’re used to. (Or, if you’re having a big family gathering anyway right now, let’s not be friends.) To some of you this is the worst thing in the whole world, holidays are a time for family, for friends. And you’re right. But let me assure you, as one of the many of us out there who this sort of holiday is the norm, you’re going to make it through. Here are a few of my tips to getting through and not getting burned.
This year is weird and hard and painful for a million different reasons and in a bazillion different ways. It’s just universally kind of shitty. That does not mean that good things haven’t happened or that hard-fought wins shouldn’t be celebrated. There are a myriad of things to be thankful for as we sit down to our holiday meal today…holiday in the US, but I assume regardless of where you are, you are having a meal and you have something to be thankful for.
While a little late to the khottie party due to some scheduling issues, aaaaaaand after last week’s dilly-dallying over which VAV member I was going to choose, it seemed only appropriate for this week’s entry to the list be VAV’s St. Van. Now everyone say hello to VAV’s St. Van!
Hello St. Van! Read more
Cover songs are some of the best Kpop content. I am a firm believer in this statement. And I am also aware that I’m acting like it’s controversial when it is clearly not. The reasons to love cover songs are many, reminders of lost loves, trying on a new concept, and having fun with remixing an oft-heard tune to name a very few. Some groups are masters at covers – killing it year after year when they’re asked to trot out an old hit or pay tribute to a celebrated senior group. Other groups just like to have fun and feed their fans in between comebacks with delightful YouTube content that requires only a few hours to learn the lyrics and choreo and a stylist some time to pull together the mood making ensembles.
Somehow, Cherry and Stephanie were able to guess that we’d need something fun and happy to take our mind off of… things. So we’re focusing on the fun! Talking about our top dramas or movies that made us laugh to remember them, then take a quiz to figure out probably the most important question of the year… just which SuperM members are we?

Inspired by my KB Alix, I have spent the last several weeks nearly drowning in the supportive antics of modern-day and historical Chinese male leads. Mainland China has been dominating the market in the nearly anxiety-free romantic fluff that is seeing many of us through these pandemic times. While I have been consuming high school and college friends to lovers sports dramas, she has been eating up the epic tales springing from the martial world. This television turn of events has gotten me thinking about some of the Chinese Kpop idols I’ve enjoyed over the years and wondering why I haven’t been paying attention to them lately.
I don’t usually talk about stuff like this, but really interesting news was released regarding the court case for Produce 101. If you’re not up on what this is, Produce 101 and Produce 101 season one and two, Produce X 101 and Produce 48 were musical variety shows where trainees and lower-ranked idol group members join in an attempt to join a year-long supergroup, hopefully boosting their own or their group’s popularity. They train, perform, and are voted in and out by public vote.
Or at least that’s what was supposed to happen. Read more
Blast from the past, my past, as I wrote this post about Seo Bok a while ago and realized I’ve never posted it. Probably old news but it still excites me so here we go!
Hello, there new Gong Yoo Movie! Or, hello there Gong Yoo and Park Bo Gum Human/Clone buddy flic! Aren’t you just the thing I didn’t know I needed in my life?? Read more
Taemin is one of those natural-born idols who probably could have done anything else in the whole wide world that he wanted to do, but we are all #blessed that he chose this. He’s the naughty maknae on top in Shinee, the wisened sunbaenim in SuperM, and simply everything we could ever want in a solo artist. I mean, for realz.
This week’s Khottie choice has been quite the Goldie Locks and the Three VAV members. I was looking for someone to feature, settled on one VAV member, start researching, harvesting pics, find a pic of another member, go ooh, he’s cuuuuute, and jumped over to him before, once again, making the ooooh who is that leap. It could be a lack of focus, it could be the realization of oversight as, turns out Ayno is the only member of VAV who has been a khottie, or it could be good planning skills, as now I have pictures for a few Khottie posts! Whatever it is though, I’m very excited to announce this week’s Khottie is VAV’s Jacob! Read more
