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’. Obviously, the year of 2020 made it difficult if not impossible for anyone to travel anywhere and it wasn’t safe to do so either, so theContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: 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. Rookie groups are constantly compared to each other, and I feel like ITZY and Everglow have been pitted theContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: ITZY as a Rookie Group”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: What I Learned About BTS After Finishing ‘Bon Voyage’

Hey! Hallie here! After I finished season 1 of ‘Bon Voyage’ I made a post highlighting what it would be like to travel with each member of BTS. But that first season was filmed quite a few years ago. Now that I’ve finished watching the series and seen how these boys have changed overtime, IContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: What I Learned About BTS After Finishing ‘Bon Voyage’”

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”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: What I Learned About BTS From ‘Bon Voyage’ Season 1

Hey! Hallie here! I’m currently in the middle of watching ‘BTS Bon Voyage’ to help pass the time and it’s really amazing so far. You get so many insights into the members personalities and it’s insanely fun watching them goof around. However, you also get to learn what it’s like to travel with them.

K-Pop and K-Dramas: Don’t Mess With BTS

Hi! It’s Annie! I’m sorry, but I can’t leave the stuff about the Grammys just yet. Especially not after the new developments from today. Because if you mess with BTS you’re going to get on the nerves of the very protective ARMY, and now we’ve actually seen some of the effects of that. Yes, BTSContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: Don’t Mess With BTS”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS Didn’t Win

Hey! Hallie here! So today was…disappointing. Actually that’s an understatement. The way BTS was treated this year, just like every year, was outright unfair. The outpouring of support from ARMY, and from BTS right back, made the bad news of today a little more bearable, though. Let’s go through the events of today and recapContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS Didn’t Win”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: Line Friends Store Hollywood

Hi! It’s Annie! I feel like this blog is slowly being taken over completely by BTS and I really hope you’re not mad at it. This is a very BTS weekend considering the Grammys, though that situation makes me nervous. So I guess here’s a more lighthearted BTS post before whatever happens tomorrow. Most ofContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: Line Friends Store Hollywood”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS and the Grammys

Hey! Hallie here! The Grammys are on Sunday and many ARMYs, like myself, are a little on edge right now. The truth is, the Grammys aren’t very trustworthy. They’ve already proven this multiple times in the past. They’ve even begun to re-prove this on the days approaching the award show. And yes, I’d say most,Continue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: BTS and the Grammys”

K-Pop and K-Dramas: ATEEZ Variety Shows

Hey! Hallie here! ATEEZ recently finished up their most recent self-promoting variety show, “Salary Lupin ATEEZ”. It hasn’t been their first variety show of this kind, but I found it, in many ways, lacking. Before ATINY’s get angry, I would like to say that I love ATEEZ. I consider myself an ATINY, and I inContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: ATEEZ Variety Shows”
