I would like to say Ten is my new hero just so I could insert the title of his song but I would be lying because I have been his fan since I saw him at Hit The Stage. I’m definitely not a new fan but here’s hoping you could be. Continue reading “TEN’s New Heroes: “Turn my mess into messages..””

Aside from devouring several books this week though not all of them brought out a review post, waiting for episodes of Idol Producer, and binge watching the season two of Go Fighting, I have been repeatedly watching several videos in YouTube. Not the Graham Norton nor the Ellen DeGeneres side of it because that was weeks ago, but the K-pop side. Continue reading “Covers, Dance Practices and Performance Videos: K-pop Side of YouTube”
Why do I keep watching idol survival shows? Maybe it’s because of those young and hopeful faces ready to face the industry with their talent and hard work. Maybe it’s living vicariously through them. Or maybe just because I was bored. But no matter the reason, I always manage to find myself some gems that needs to be shared.

It came to me, on a rainy afternoon as I made my way through the streets of Lisbon, that there is one thing I have been wanting to write about for a while – in urgency, leaving a tickle on the tips of my fingers and my mind racing with words just dying to be written. That one thing – or, rather, one person – is Kim Taehyung.
Odds are you have not heard of him. If that is indeed the case, then I am so glad you are reading this! You get to discover someone new, and, hopefully, feel inspired by him like I do.
At first glance, Kim Taehyung is a pretty face (like really fucking pretty, though). On second glance he is an ambiguous character with a smile that will make you happy, and his head in the clouds. After a while, if you care to…

I have been absent from my blog these days but not on purpose. I have been travelling and now ended up back home with a few pounds gained and less stress. But even before I got my gears back up for blogging, I was hit by two news from the K-pop scene: a beginning and an end.

Even though we may have different tastes of music or different artists or albums we listen to, I would just like to share with you (whoever is reading this – you’re awesome!) some of the songs that I listen to. And maybe in the hopes of language not being a barrier when it comes to music, you’ll end up liking them too. But no pressure. This is just me wanting to share.

People has a lot of preconceived notions about K-pop. But such generalizations only lead to one being blissfully ignorant of the gem under all that fluff.

There’s a group that recently caught my eye. They’re not the usual. They’re not from the big three. They’re fresh from debut this year and already released their 1st Mini Album. And an important detail is that they are a co-ed group. Continue reading “K.A.R.D”
