K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS’s Magic Shop

Hi! It’s Annie! After BangBang Con, I couldn’t help but fall more in love with the concept of the Magic Shop.

K-Pop and K-Dramas: Bang Bang Con 2021

Hey! Hallie here! Yesterday (and for a lot of us, this morning) was 2021’s Bang Bang Con.

K-Pop and K-Dramas: Understanding Taehyung

Hey! Hallie here! Anyone who’s stuck with this blog for a while knows that my bias in BTS is J-Hope. I’ve talked about him pretty often and I love him a lot. But Taehyung is my bias wrecker. His personality tends to draw me in. But coming into BTS as ARMY, it took me theContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: Understanding Taehyung”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS in the Soop

Hi! It’s Annie! I finally just finished watching all of ‘Bon Voyage’ as well as the equivalent this year because of quarantine; the COVID safe ‘BTS in the Soop’.

K-Pop and K-Dramas: ITZY as a Rookie Group

Hi! It’s Annie! I’ve already done a post like this about Everglow, who is probably my favorite girl group right now. But it’s always difficult to look at rookie groups and not hear the name ITZY.

K-Pop and K-Dramas: Infantilizing Idols

Hey! Hallie here! This specifically is an interesting problem because it’s something both fans of K-Pop and those who dislike K-Pop suffer from. It’s prevalent in multiple groups as well, though, being ARMY, I tend to notice it most in the BTS fandom. This problem doesn’t stem from using the term “baby” to describe aContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: Infantilizing Idols”
