K-Pop and K-Dramas: The Cultural Reset of ‘Daechwita’

Hi! It’s Annie! I have always been a sucker for anything BTS does, but their solo projects are always amazing. From their solo work we’ve gotten Jungkook’s ‘Still With You’ which is one of the most calming songs I’ve ever listened to, Jimin’s ‘Promise’ which is one of my favorite songs to exist, and plentyContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: The Cultural Reset of ‘Daechwita’”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: The Devastation of Bias Wreckers

Hi! It’s Annie! We’ve talked about how difficult it is to choose a bias on this blog, but no one expects the difficulty of bias wreckers. At least not initially. Bias wreckers can be difficult to both choose and keep for a multitude of reasons and no one knows this more than I do. BiasContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: The Devastation of Bias Wreckers”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: Everglow’s ‘Last Melody’ is Out!

Hi! It’s Annie! There was a lot happening with Everglow today. Of course, the biggest thing was definitely their release of their new album and music video for ‘First’. A few days ago they released a trailer for all three of the songs they would be featuring on the new album, so the sounds weren’tContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: Everglow’s ‘Last Melody’ is Out!”

K-Pop and K-Dramas:J-Hope is Fine, Guys

Hey! Hallie here! Today, while I was scrolling through Twitter, I found two hashtags trending that confused me. The most popular of the hashtags was #wewantmorejhope and #Give_jhope_more. Looking into these hashtags I’m seeing more of an argument than any actual effort to get J-Hope more time in songs. One side of the argument, whichContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas:J-Hope is Fine, Guys”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: Fan Sign Etiquette

Hi! It’s Annie! I should really prelude this by saying that I have never been to a fan sign. For the most part, fan signs take place in South Korea and most of my love of K-pop happened during quarantine. So, other than online fan signs, there really wasn’t much going on. I also wantContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: Fan Sign Etiquette”

Hey! Hallie here! I’m still on a “Butter” high and the individual interviews with BTS have been completed, so of course I’m going to keep talking about BTS! These last three interviews promise to be very interesting after what we saw from the first four. Rolling Stone’s collaboration with BTS has been pretty good forContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS Rolling Stone Interviews Part 2”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: “Butter” is Out!

Hey! Hallie here! I have now watched “Butter” several, several times and there’s so much to talk about. So much. To start out, this music video was insanely good. They all looked absolutely amazing. There is nothing I can criticize here. The song, the lyrics, the vocals, the looks were all impeccable. Honestly, this musicContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: “Butter” is Out!”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS Rolling Stone Interviews

Hey! Hallie here! As of now five of the seven Rolling Stone interviews have been released! While I could go through all five individual interviews from the members of BTS, I want to make sure I give each interview a good amount of space. So Namjoon’s recently released interview, as well as the unreleased interviewsContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS Rolling Stone Interviews”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: New Microphone Colors

Hi! It’s Annie! Over the last couple days we’ve had some pretty great performances from various different K-pop groups between the event with Amazon Music and the Lotte Duty Free Family Concert. But what struck a lot of people about these performances, almost as much as the performances themselves, was the different colored mics thatContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: New Microphone Colors”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS and Rolling Stone

Hey! Hallie here! We’re back! A few days ago my sister and I went to get our second vaccine so we took a day off yesterday to recover from some mild symptoms. But we’re back and feeling amazing, so today I’m going to talk about what occupied all of my thoughts while I was relaxingContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS and Rolling Stone”
