Musical Monday – April Showers Bring May Flowers

Posted by SaraG on May 25, 2020


Lucy - Korean Band

Music is, as I’ve said before, insanely personal. I talk about it all the time as if I’m some sort of genuine know it all who has some sort of clue as to what makes a song or a group good. I don’t. I just know what I like and I’m fairly articulate, so it seems like I know what I’m talking about. And I do…for me. I know that when I first heard Lucy, a Korean band on the show JTBC SuperBand, I was impressed. To the point where I downloaded their releases from the show and saved them on playlists. And moved on.

Stay At Home Saturday: Dinner With Friends

Posted by Stephanie on May 23, 2020


cold buckwheat noodlesDuring this time, we can mix, we can mingle, we can have dinner with friends, we just have to start getting more…creative about it. Last weekend I decided I had a hankering for a Korean dish I make periodically in the summertime, cold buckwheat noodles. Its cold, it’s spicy, it’s topped with crunchy vegetables, a perfect hot weather dish. Now, I’ve never really made this dish for myself, while technically simple, there are a lot of steps to it, so I like to make it for friends. Bummer. Too bad I can’t have dinner with friends. Remember those days? Did I then really want to make these things just for myself or was that just going to bum me out? Then it dawned on me. Why couldn’t I make it for friends if I were super careful?

And that’s what I did…. to mixed results. And with this recipe you could too! Possibly with better results.  😉

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Not Too Little, Not Too Much

Posted by SaraG on May 21, 2020


Rock UR Body, VIXX

I and this is a secret to no one that has ever met me, love attention. I want folks in a room to pay attention when I have something to add to a conversation and my sense of personal style leans more towards the brash than some might be comfortable with. All of that being true, I have never once wanted to be famous. Recognized in my chosen field, yes, approved of by my peers, absolutely, but famous – nope. I’m good with the general public not really knowing who I am and what I do with my time. There is a definite sense of vulnerability and loss of control that comes with reaching those heights.

#Alive, Yoo Ah In and Zombies

Are we ready for more zombies??? After watching Kingdom 2, I’d say mmmmm…. nah, I think I’m going to pass, I’ve had my fill for a while, but the casting of the upcoming #Alive? Sign me up.

The Results

Posted by Stephanie on May 18, 2020


So, if you’ve been keeping up, you’ll know we’ve had some changes here at Kchat, first of all being, moving over to the new hosting company, due to a lot of background work from Cherry, the site managed to keep more of the published posts than we had anticipated, which means we’ve been able to keep some the comments listed there. Now, we’ve been working with the new system for a few days, working on some updates that we’ve wanted to get to for a while. We have some good news, some bad news, and some stuff we’re going to continue to work on. Read more

Musical Monday: Can I Tell You

Posted by Alix on May 18, 2020


Day6, Zombie

You might have picked up on this last week but for the time being SaraG and I are going to split the weekly musical posts. Thankfully just as I was discovering that writing two posts a week is a lot of work, SaraG appeared and said I can do one if you want. My response was a quick loud yes, please. Because variety is the spice of life we came up with the idea to play around with the posts and so this week I picked SaraG’s song and she picked mine. We’re brewing some ideas for future weeks and we’d love suggestions from readers…things like a song that reminds you of your favorite drama or oddest kpop song you love, etc. It helps to know there are actually people who read these labors of love and motivates us to keep going.

Khottie of the Week: The Missing Kihyun

Posted by Stephanie on May 17, 2020

Khottie of the Week

I’m a putter-er. I have trouble sitting still, trouble not doing something. Which is why the site suits me. You wouldn’t believe the amount of busywork it produces on a weekly basis, either with regular upkeep, or new projects. This week, as Cherry was working on getting us flipped over to the new server, I got a bug up my rear about organizing Khottie, marking pages, making it more sharable, seeing who has been featured already. One side benefit of the work is primarily seeing who is missing. I can now organize by groups, by themes and see just who we accidentally skipped over by not having any organization. (Swoon, who here loves a spreadsheet?)

One of the biggest gaps that made me gasp in surprise? Kihyun! Kihyun of Monsta X is the ONLY Monsta X member who has not had is turn on the Khottie list. Khottie of the Week: Kihyun, Monsta X
