Musical Monday – Mondays Call For Something Darker

Posted by SaraG on August 2, 2021

When I first woke up this morning I was waffling all over the place thinking about what I wanted to write about for Musical Monday. You see, I’m super excited for the Golcha and Astro comebacks (which happen the day I post this, but a few days after I write it), and the ONF and The Boyz comebacks that land shortly after that, and a whole host of others in the next few weeks. It’s not that everything that came out this week wasn’t worth swooning over, surely, but I woke up with these thoughts. It was my subconscious leading me down this path. I cannot be blamed for not remembering how full my plate was.

Khottie of the Week: Ateez’s Seonghwa

Posted by Stephanie on August 1, 2021

Khottie of the Week

I was really feeling Kpop this week. There are those weeks where there are other things you listen to, like podcasts, or sports, or in my case, listening to people reading reddit feeds aloud. This week though, with lots of things going on, I was FEELING it. I was listening to playlists, watching videos, catching up on recommendations, and last night on a date with our lovely SaraG, we did a throwback to Friday Night Gatherings where we ate food, caught up, laughed until we were hoarse, and then piled into her basement where she plied me with all the new music she thought I’d enjoy. One of the groups I was particularly enjoying this week was ATEEZ. I like so much of their music, they are actually the one group where I own ALL of their albums, and yet I don’t pay too much attention to them. That really needs to change.

SO I’m happy to announce, this week’s Khottie? The majestic creature that is Park Seonghwa of Ateez! Read more

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Overload

Posted by SaraG on July 29, 2021

Music

This past weekend was my wedding anniversary and my husband and I did a bit of a staycation away from the house and the kids. We went to an interactive VanGogh exhibit, an Itchy-O and Church Fire concert (huge, spaced out, outdoor venue) where we ran into friends we haven’t seen since pre-COVID, stayed in a fancy-schmancy hotel downtown, ate late-night pizza, and shopped at a favorite bookstore in their new location. We wrapped up the weekend at a great little date spot called the Inventing Room where the owner/chef does all sorts of cool sciencey things to candy and you get to sample it all and then eat a liquid nitrogen made ice cream sundae. It was incredibly fun and I highly recommend the experience as a whole, but in particular that last bit with the candy.

You know how your family pressures, pressures, pressures you to join the family business? Well, what if that family business is the shaman business and you’re a high schooler who wants nothing more than to graduate and NOT see ghosts for the rest of her life. This is the gist of the plot of the newest summertime fun drama, The Great Shaman Ga Doo Shim! Read more

Musical Monday – The Only Way I Hear American Pop

Posted by SaraG on July 26, 2021

Music

The title of this post is a lie, but not like a HUUUUGE lie. I hear some Western pop from my spawn and, you know, wandering in stores when music is playing. But unless I already know the artist well and intentionally seek out what they’ve done recently, I don’t typically hear it. I am woefully behind on super popular songs in English. I’d say it’s because I’m old, but that’s not the reason. I don’t hear them because I almost exclusively stream my tunes and I only listen to the stuff I want to listen to…and for the last absurd number of years, that was largely Korean.

THottie of the Week: Bright Chivaaree

Posted by Stephanie on July 25, 2021

Khottie of the Week

This THHottieis a gift to my lovely Scott H. Scott H. who recently fell down the rabbit hole that is BL and just as quickly fell for the dark and broody Sarawat AKA Bright Chivaaree from 2Gether The Series. I’d say I don’t say could blame him but I’m too busy saying “I Told You So.” Read more

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Toasty

Posted by SaraG on July 22, 2021

Music

Monday’s post got me thinking about summer music and what I think of as the perfect summer song. That is a hugely complicated question as more than the season goes into creating the ideal tune for a specific moment, but summer songs are distinct in Kpop. There’s just something about them that makes them so absolutely suited for the heat, swimsuits, cookouts, and convertibles.

Musical Monday – Scorching

After some lovely rain and cooler temps, it’s back to being heartbreakingly hot in Colorado. Burst into flame hot. Emergency managers are watching out for large fires hot. That’s not cool.
