I’m sorry, truly sorry, you’ve had to sieve through a lot of write-ups you don’t necessarily fancy to get to my drama-related write-ups, and likewise to any non-drama-enthusiast readers reading this, I want to apologize to you as well for the … More New Gateway for Asian Drama-enthusiasts: dramaphilic!
A year ago on the 25th of October, a team of five boys paved their way with sweat, blood and lots and lots of tears to earn the title of WINNER. It was one hell of a ride and the world was there to witness just about everything. Did I ever think I’d dedicate write-ups after write-ups, even … More October 25th, 2014: Winnerversary i.e. Thank You For Being Winner!
I’m no music pro so this isn’t a music-driven review, just a fan-reaction (minus the extreme fangirling) write-up on the début album of YG Entertainment’s newest powerhouse and talent extraordinaire WINNER. Their début album, WINNER 2014 S/S, was released on August 12, 2014. Just a note, this was how I approached the debut album: Dialed my … More (My) WINNER’s Debut Album: A Solid First Offering.
I am stuck with really crappy internet right now so I will keep this short, and I know I’ve been real quiet about this; I got tired of the hype and rants about the debut days – by that I mean non-stop teasers. Still, I thought I needed to document this in blogphilic because a year ago, … More Timeout: It’s Here! It’s Here! WINNER’s D-day!

My apologies to my drama-readers for the halt on drama write-ups and there’s only one reason: for the past month, I … More Timeout: Checking-In, Life Stops For No (Wo)Man.
I recently reached a personal milestone here at blogphilic, and have been meaning to celebrate it with an appreciation post. My regular, occasional, lurking, new, and/or silent readers – everyone, this entry is dedicated especially for you! While I don’t really trust the numbers on my stats to tell the whole story about my readership, especially regulars since I … More An Appreciation Post (with Gifts!): You Are Some of My Favorite Things.
I just watched this performance, and could not resist sharing. What a beautifully done duet. I’ve crushed on Jung Eun Ji for a while now thanks to her voice, but stage presence and budding acting skills have since been added to further justify just why she’s growing on me. Here’s one idol I actually approve in … More Timeout: Some of My Favorite Stars.
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.
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.
