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. Bang Bang Con was created by the members of BTS to give ARMYs an alternative to a concert while the pandemic was preventing BTS from touring. As this is still the case, this Bang Bang Con was aContinue reading “K-Pop and K-Dramas: Bang Bang Con 2021”

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: “Dynamite” Hit 1 Billion on Youtube!

Hey! Hallie here! BTS is constantly breaking records. From individual mixtapes hitting unseen highs for Korean artists, to new songs topping the charts immediately after release, there’s always some sort of congratulatory hashtag trending on Twitter.

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: 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: 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.

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”
