Musical Monday – Hanging Chad Be Damned

Posted by SaraG on September 13, 2021

I love, love, love an unnecessary show of democracy when used as a promotional tool for something as universally adored as ATEEZ. As they’ve done in the past, prior to the release of their upcoming album, the group and their company are leaving it to their fandom, ATINY, to select which of two choices will be selected as the title track. It really is largely irrelevant because both songs will be released and we will, in short order, get both MVs, but it’s fun to feel a little involved in the process and to get a solid taste of both of the concepts being offered up.

CHottie of the Week: Seventeen’s The8

Posted by Stephanie on September 12, 2021

Khottie of the Week

Continuing to celebrate Seventeen, this week we have Chinese member, The8, otherwise properly known as Minghao. I’m here to say, I love both his names and can easily be found just repeating them over and over again. Minghaooooo. Minghaaaaaoooo. Minghao. It just rolls, doesn’t it?

The KLibrary – A Fun New Tool

Posted by Stephanie on September 10, 2021

Fun Friday

Ever go to a kpop store, go up to the Seventeen section all ready to buy, and go, “Yeah, but which of these do I already own? They all look so similar!” Or go to a Kpop swap and see tables upon tables of Monsta X albums, many I’m sure I don’t own but….what if I do? Those early ones all look the same! Then in both situations end up just not getting anything? (Well, let’s not go that far, we’ll buy something but we’re not going to get any closer to completing those collections of ours.) Wouldn’t it be nice if, at our fingertips, we knew exactly not only what albums we own but exactly what version of the album it is?

Well, the KLibrary app is here and ready to help!

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Celebrating Milestones in Kpop

Posted by SaraG on September 9, 2021

Music

Having been established by Big Rhymer in 2011, Brand New Music turned ten years old this year. That’s not old, but that’s not young either. They’ve got a solid roster of solo artists and have successfully dipped their toes into the already teeming pool of boy groups with AB6ix. While definitely one of those labels we all pay attention to – whether we realize it or not – it actually has a pretty twisty-turny background that might not be as well known.

Squid Game – WOAH

Posted by Stephanie on September 7, 2021

General

I’ve been seeing pictures of the upcoming Netflix drama, Squid Game. I’ve been seeing them and going…I should check that out. Seeing them, thinking that, and then moving on to something else. Today? I finally checked out the teaser, and let me tell you, I-Am-Stoked. This show looks like a horrific good time, something awful and creep, just in time for fall and hallowed. I can’t wait.

Musical Monday: Writing Love

Posted by Stephanie on September 6, 2021

Music

Friday I got a weird message from SaraG. She asked me if I wanted to write Monday’s Musical Monday post because A.C.E had just come out with their new release, and she had a hard time writing about her loves. As I love both SaraG AND A.C.E, of course, I would take them! It would be an honor! But then? I had to write about them and I find myself in the same spot that SaraG is in and now I curse her for this current predicament.

I love A.C.E so much. Some might say a troubling amount. I FOR REAL have a framed (and we’re not talking a poster frame we’re talking a NICE frame) poster of them in my living room. I may have paid a GROSS amount of money for one of their out of print albums. I may have spent their last online concert standing up in front of SaraG’s TV dancing, squeeing, and taking pictures….OF THE TV. I may or may not be planning a huge A.C.E party with my partner in crime Val, where we sit there and egg each other on for bigger and more elaborate decorations reminding ourselves that only FIVE people will be in attendance. (BTW, I don’t think we’ve said Fuck COVID enough lately here.) Read more

Chottie of the Week: NCT/WayV’s WinWin!

Posted by Stephanie on September 5, 2021

Khottie of the Week

I’m going to try very hard not to make the very easy joke about how this hottie post is a win….win. Hopefully, by putting it out there, right at the top, it’s going to remove all need to pun it. Perhaps it will be a little easier if we focus on his actual name, Dong Sicheng. Nope. It’s there. the urge is there it is real and may just be overwhelming all other thoughts.

So, not a win.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – smooches

Posted by SaraG on September 2, 2021

Music

I love a good “If these two kpop groups had a baby” descriptors of newly debuted artists. I know it’s silly, but it really is a great way of giving me an idea of what to expect. I read somewhere of Purple kiss, the newish RBW group, that if Dreamcatcher and (G)I-dle had a baby, this would be it exactly. And they were not wrong.

BL and Bubbles the August/September Edition

Posted by Stephanie on August 31, 2021

BL

If you’ve been following along, you’ll notice I didn’t do a BL and Bubbles calendar update for August. Why? Did BL and Bubbles cease to be? Did we get bored? Did the tapioca shortage finally reach Denver? None of those things! Whew! No, I went to write my post at the beginning of last month and realized…there wasn’t a lot coming out. I think I had three and since that was super lame, I decided to meld August with September and do a post on Currently Airing and Upcoming BL shows. Now looking at the list, it’s a good thing I did as there isn’t a lot coming out in September, but August is now packed with shows we’ve missed. What is going on???

I think it is a couple of things. 1) I think we are in a bit of a drama dry patch. Nothing to be scared about, it happened last year around the same time, I’m guessing they are holding the real good stuff for later on in the year. It’s okay, it allows us to catch up on some of the shows we couldn’t watch when the BLs were coming at us fast and furiously. 2) I don’t think these things really follow a real predetermined schedule. Probably due to the fact that they aren’t on network programming, so why should they? They release when they are ready with very little notice. What do they care? It’s not like we’re not going to watch it.

So, I guess that being said, we’ll not stress about schedules and having the most complete list, we’re just going to have to sit back and wait for the shows to pop up.
