So stressed out yesterday that I went to the Paris Baguette downtown, and treated myself to a red bean rice cake croissant. That’s basically the highlight of my week and guess what? It’s far from over. I can’t, I just can’t. (I swear, sometimes I hate the quarter system, and kicking myself for choosing to continue schooling) Happy Friday … More Timeout: (another pointless entry).
There is this guy, his name is Eddy Kim. His voice is kind of amazing. His music videos were shot in Amsterdam; the backdrop is stunning. I was here two years ago, though we only stayed for a night. Still, this brings back memories. (Paloma, you would absolutely love this video) My favorite track from … More Timeout: Shall We Slow Dance? (Quick Shout-out of Thanks!)
I need to stop feeding the trolls, I know, but this situation is getting ridiculous, immature, and just nasty. My god some Team B fans – what are you guys… preteens, tweens? Cos if you’re adults and acting in this manner across the world wide web – or is it because we’re in a virtual space, masking behind … More Timeout: Note-to-Self – Don’t Feed The Whiner Trolls.
Yoo Hee Yeol and Hong Jung Hee, on the same stage? Yoo Hee Yeol keeping his promise to play the piano for her? Recall the time when she was eliminated from this show, and he teared? The most heartfelt mentor-student relationship I’ve watched on national TV in awhile. Video cuts oddly, which sucks, but OMG … More Timeout: The Single Thing KPop Star 3 Did Right was (Snagging) Yoo Hee Yeol.
Here’s a (lengthy) update on what I’ve been into lately, and scattered thoughts I have about the current KPop/K-music scene. I’m no expert, and I actually like (as in really like) only select groups/soloists so take everything with a grain of salt. While I will maintain proper decorum when it comes to clashes in opinions, if any, … More Timeout: Hey, What’s Up? Part II: What I’m Watching & Scattered Thoughts on The Current KPop Landscape.
Surprise, I’m back! Okay, kinda. Let me rephrase that – I’m indeed back from my weeklong trip where I happily enjoyed being on island time, but life continues to chug along without mercy. Today was the first day of the new term, and oh boy. I’m not about to apologize for the past week – who apologizes … More Timeout: Baby It’s Cold Outside (Quickie Updates).
Do you see and understand, what I am trying to convey through the photo above? I have never thought there would come a day I’d actually write about KPop and being Muslim, relating the two together. The association between KPop and Islam has honestly never crossed my mind – not once. Yet it happened. The … More KPop, Islam, & Social Media: Addressing The Importance of Appropriate Use of Speech.
Heads up to all KPop Star 2 watchers, exciting news! In case you didn’t hear, 2000 Won – the underdogs and victim to the judges’ blatant biased attitude – is debuting! I am pretty sure that their début single, Beautiful will be released on March 14. Check out the teaser below: I am excited, and so … More Timeout: 2000 Won! Is! Debuting!
A week or so ago, someone posted the above to YG Rookies Confession at Tumblr. I chuckled and told myself not to bother, but let’s be real – I’m probably one of those who went batshit crazy, so why not. Let’s do this one more time. I want to bury the hatchet as much as … More Timeout: You Want Apeshit Crazy? Here You Go, Clearing The Air about WINNER & Team B’s Debuting Debacle.
Is anyone else watching KPop Star 3? I love the addition of Yoo Hee Yeol to the show, because now it’s less about the ‘Big 3′ and idol-hoppin’ world, and more about the contestants and their music, aspirations, and of course – dreams. What this show does so well, and why and how it’s different … More Pimp That (KVariety) Show: Jump Onboard KPop Star Season 3!
