This is the third time I see Big Bang in concert. It was a very different experience from the last time I saw them, back in 2012. Back then, I saw them in a smaller venue in London. I saw them on two consecutive nights, had the privilege of being sung to by Daesung, getting a huge smile, having G-Dragon try to make me laugh by making faces at me, and having a dance contest with Taeyang and making him laugh with my non existent dance skills (yep, it was an epic concert). This
I've been a Kpop fan for so long that I'm losing count of the years, but I think I'm going on eleven years now. That being said, this is a topic that I rarely see being discussed properly. Yet it's so important to address in order for us to be able to enjoy the music of our idols without feeling bitter over things like line distributions. Because a new comeback usually means new arguments over line distribution, and I have noticed that something crucial is usually left out
As a Korean speaker, I love the MV to Big Bang's 'Fxxk It' for its wits. For anyone who hasn't seen the music video, or don't really remember it, I have attached the music video here for your convenience... If you don't feel like watching it now, don't worry, I have made appropriate gifs to go with my explanations about why I love Big Bang's 'Fxxk It' so much. Hopefully this will make you view the music video in a slightly different light next time you feel like watching it.
You've probably heard about the Big Three. The three biggest Entertainment Companies in Kpop: SM, JYP and YG. But did you know that the Big Three used to be the Big Two? On this week's Kpop history lesson, we shall have a look at how the Big Three came to be and how BigHit compares. The Big Two Before there was the Big Three, there was the Big Two. This is back in the late 90s when first generation Kpop emerged. And the first of them is... SM Entertainment The company's found
Today's Kpop history will be focused around the following question: For how long do Kpop stars live together in their dorms? Most Army probably know that BTS live in a dorm and have lived together in dorms since pre debut. They continue to live in dorms to this day too, but will they continue to do so in the future too? I'll attempt to answer these questions by exploring some Kpop history and letting you know what other idols have done, and why, and taking a look at how BTS c
An encouragement of self love. #LoveYourself Campaign I don't always agree with what my bias says or does. Some things even annoy me, and yet I still love him. As an example, I love hearing Suga's talk (Suga is my bias in case you haven't noticed), but the way he slurps his spit when he is considering something, like an old man, really gets on my nerves sometimes. Sometimes it makes me smile, and then other times I can't hear anything but that slurping sound. (BTS talk about
I've been into Kpop for over eleven years, and during that time I've seen groups come and go, groups disband, member changes, members leaving, being kicked out, and scandals that would shake your soul. Disbandment is the natural end of a group's era. All bands reach that stage at some point... Almost all groups! There are a few exceptions, really just a few, but I wholeheartedly believe that, given the right conditions, BTS can become such an exception. When trying to predict
I must admit: my day started quite unexpectedly: woken up by kids doing morning exercise at the Elementary school visible from our small terrace (yes we have a terrace: it’s awesome and the kids are so cute). Look! Aren’t they just cute! It looked like a flash mob, very cute. I don’t mind waking up because of this every morning. (see a video of the small ‘flashmob’ here) Yesterday evening I met my room-mate. Her name is Kiki and she is from Hong Kong. She speaks some English
