Chaebol Wikipedia Entry

BTS Jimin with Blonde Hair


BTS J-Hope with Blonde-ish Hair



Stephanie should apologize to the following
  • Kim Ji Hoon. She may have implied, or out and out said that your hair is dumb. She has reflected upon her word choices and realized she was rash, and, while she still thinks your hair color is, in fact, not flattering in the slightest, it was rude of her to say so and for that she apologizes.
  • Fans who were mean to JHope. She is NOT sorry for what she said, she is, however, sorry you are such butt-holes.
  • JHope, both Cherry and she apologizes that fangirl made you feel bad. You are awesome and we love you guys equally.


Thanks for listening! See you next time.

    Stephanie, I’m afraid to tell you that you got it wrong again. It was Sara who you were facebook chatting with last weekend. I could never marry Song Joong Ki as his love for Sara runs too deep.
    Should we come up with a couple name so that you’ll always be right regardless of who you mean?

    I have missed you all!! I am playing a little catch up on listening…

    Watching scarlet heart… Enjoying so far…lots of pretty.

    Looking forward to watching Kim TaeHyung (V) in Hwarang: The Beginning. Watching V on the videos, he is one of the better actors of the group. He did a great job on his video short stigma https://youtu.be/XKCjDF3lUrA

    Mr SpiceAngel and I have to watch the theory videos to try to understand what is going on. PD Bang must have had a five year plan for the boys. The clues that can be found in early videos are a bit spooky.

    In Jimin’s Video there is a song “Lie”. I really hope it is a real song and on the new album.

    Oh my goodness. JHope!!! He does not enjoy extreme anything.

    I am a bit disappointed at the insensitivity of some ‘so called’ Fans. Everyone of those boys are precious and bring their unique gifts to the group.

    IMHO…Heirs was a hot mess of ugly sweaters, crying and eye brows. I watched every last minute of it. The only redeeming part was my favorite ‘Ahjumma’ playing PSH mother. It was the first time I saw her in a drama.

    BTW…2 days 1 night has had Park Bo Gum on the last two or so episodes. Oh my God!! Even Mr Spiceangel has fallen for his charm. Stephanie get over your hate of Cha Tae Hyun and watch!!!

    Speaking of PBG, he is my new obsession. Watching him in ‘Love in the Moonlight’…so good. I am even jumped the gun and started ‘I remember you’. Which OKC will watch next.

    Finished ‘Fight Ghost’ loved it! Loved the two side characters!!

    I will have to check out Cinderella…. 🙂

    Later Ladies!!!
