Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Looking Forward

Posted by SaraG on January 28, 2021

Music

No secret, I love trolling for the next group I’m going to fall in love with, I prefer learning trainees before they debut as idols, and I adore theatrical and fantastical concepts. Over the last couple of weeks, KpopontheDL has been tossing me teasers for the debut of the new group Kingdom – not to be confused with Kingdom the survival show airing in the coming months. This new gaggle of idols-to-be are coming out of the gate with a medieval king concept including armor and swords and I am way into it.

Baby! Gameboys 2 Teaser

Gameboys 2

The first teaser for Gameboys 2 is out and I’m…conflicted as to how I feel about it. The news that Gameboys 2 was happening has been swirling since pretty much since Gameboys 2 ended. Actually, now that I think about out, they might have even announced it at the very last episode. So it was no secret this thing was coming. But now, with the teaser, there’s no turning back now!

Musical Monday – Darker Side

Posted by SaraG on January 25, 2021

Music

One of the things we ALWAYS talk about with new debuts, comebacks, and stages is the concept. Before listening to Kpop I always thought about this idea in terms of genre and used the word to encompass the sound, look, and feel of the artist. Like, Dar Williams is a folk singer so you know that she’s likely going to be in pretty stylishly conservative clothes and have attractive, low-maintenance hair. In the Western music I used to favor, the genre really is a reliable indicator as to what you’re going to get with every album, song, or concert. Think about it, though each and every song was a gem, you always knew roughly what you were going to get from Ani Difranco, Nine Inch Nails, and the Mighty Mighty Bostons. There were no huge change-ups between each album no matter what color hair they were sporting.

Khottie of the Week

Victon - Chan

We are at one last Victon member who is Khottie eligible and, after their awesome new album, it seems appropriate we finish out the deck of be-dimpled idols…. at least until Hanse and Byungchan have birthdays later this year. SO, I’m happy to give you this week’s Khottie of the Week, Victon’s Chan! Read more

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Love Me Some World Building

Posted by SaraG on January 21, 2021

Music

I am writing this far before the events of January 20 – so if anything major happened and I am so far outside of what we should have been discussing, I apologize and would like you to use this simple post as a distraction.

In the name of full disclosure, anytime you say almost anything to me I am building whole worlds, either fun and fictional or based on my own insecurities. While super damaging when we mean the latter – so we’ll ignore that part – it can be incredibly fun and entertaining when it’s the former. For example, I mentioned a particular candle I was pondering getting from a small independent business when one of my friends suggested that it would be awesome if that aptly named candle was what JR from Nu’est smelled like. My mind went crazy. I could easily have passed out with the sheer number of domestic situations that basically crafted themselves in my imagination. So when a song or an MV does all of that storyboarding for me, I’m prone to love it immediately.

Let’s Fight Ghost!

Let's Fight GhostSure, why not, bring it on.

Okay, not going to lie, I was really leery about this show, or… actually I had no idea about the show itself, I was leery about the idea of Saint, BL king extraordinaire, starring in anything other than the newest BL. Would he be good in it? Would I want to see it? Would I spend the whole time wishing it was a BL? Well, the first teaser is out, and let me tell you, if this show would come out tomorrow, I’d happily throw all my weekend plans aside* and sit there to binge the whole thing.

Yes, I’m that excited about it.

Being Tempted By Dramas

Posted by Stephanie on January 19, 2021

General

While I said that I wasn’t going to do any resolutions this year. I do have some things I’m aiming to do. One of those things is to finish the dramas I finish. Somehow over the last couple of years, I’ve developed the terrible habit of dropping dramas mid-watch. Doesn’t matter where I am, could be a few episodes in, could be at the halfway point, I could be at the VERY END, and I’ll look back, months later, and realize oh, I never finished that. There’s nothing wrong with these shows (not really), I’m just having some attention span issues. So I resolved, this year, I’m going to finish all my in-process shows. I’m going to eat what I have before I go back to the buffet. Which is good… in theory… but sometimes those other dishes are so appealing!

I’m guessing I might not be alone here. Read more
