On a side note, let’s PLEASE talk about BTS’s new “mini” album. Where is the mini??? Wherrrreeee? Omg.

HYYH pt.2 is PURE 100% HOTNESS on ALL levels.

I CANNOT EVEN DEAL with the musical genius that is BTS x Big Hit. Seriously.

Big Hit is making their OWN BTS movie. A few more 7 minute MVs, call up Lumpens to work their cinematic MAGIC and master mix them all together…Yassssss! Big Hit, I am so onto you.  @ _ @  Bang PD nimmm!

My top 3 songs on HYYH pt.2 are:

  1. 뱁새  (screams)  This song??? OMFG. I.WAS.NOT.READY. It took me dam near two days to figure out that was Tae Tae on the hook. He slayed it, brought it back to life then killed it AGAIN. They ALL did. It was almost like…dare I say it??? *whispers…Cypher Part 4….
  2. House of Cards  (still screaming) When I heard this song on the Prologue MV, I knew I was in trouble. I KNEW. The full version? DEAD.
  3. Butterfly (screams turn into intense sobbing) AS SOON AS THIS SONG COMES ON my eyes fill with tears. It is ridiculous the emotional intensity that it invokes in me EVERY.SINGLE.TIME I listen to it.

Talking about these songs has my heart racing. I’m not even kidding. I’m also listening to them so that’s probably why too. Hehehe.

I feel like BTS is going to single handled take over the k pop scene. Right now, there is still some resistance (rolls eyes dramatically) but to me and I’m sure to most A.R.M.Y.s, BTS is UNDENIABLE.

After seeing BTS’s Official Instagram shut down from overload and then spring back to life with 200K+ followers in like 3 hours???

It is not a game.

Let’s RUN.

BTS Official Shop – The Red Bullet MD

For those of you who are like me and were unable to attend a BTS Red Bullet concert, the announcement of the release of this merchandise in the official shop was a dream come true.

I don’t want to complain and say it took them long enough but….IT TOOK THEM LONG ENOUGH.

Seriously. My poor, suffering, BTS obsessed soul.

Anyhue, I got the t shirt.

I am not sure how it will fit since both the t shirt and the hoodie are ‘One Size’ but they say on the site that they are over-sized, so fingers crossed.

If they still have the t shirt in the shop when I receive mine, I will update this post with a pic so you all can see the sizing.

I bought my t shirt at 12 midnight EST on the dot since the Now2 with the special gift sold out in like 5 minutes in the pre-order.

I thought it was better to be safe than so so sorry. – _ –

So now I have 3 BTS shipments I am waiting for. The Now2 w/ the special gift, the Red Bullet t shirt and the Fan Club 2nd term membership package.

Smh. I can’t even explain my actions…

You can get your Red Bullet merch here at The BTS Official Shop.

Happy shopping! ^^

In too deep…The struggles of a fandom girl

I’ve always been a very musically influenced person. Music motivates me and also has a strong link to my emotions. SUPER strong. For me, a song can go from “Mehhh” to “OMG, that’s my jam!”, if it’s catchy and even more so if it has also dope MV. I also like to ‘cross the border’ and listen to songs in different languages from other countries. For those, even if I only have a rough translation of the lyrics, it goes back to the foundation. The music, the beats, the tempo and the voice of the artist(s).

To my current knowledge, only one of my friends is into k pop. I  just recently found that out around March. So basically, when I first started listening to k pop, there was no one to warn me of the implications. I know how silly that may sound but really, once you start to bias one particular k pop group, that’s it. Even worse if you also bias one of the members of your bias group. If this applies to you, you might as well stop reading this right now, get a suitcase, book a flight and move to South Korea because that is the only way to BARELY survive being in a fandom. I say barely because I’m sure the fandom struggles over there are like mine TIMES one million. I think about packing up and moving there at least three times a month. Twice a month because I really do want to live in either Japan or South Korea. Once a month because BTS nearly drives me to the edge of my sanity by doing something that they DO.

When my friend first introduced me to BTS aka Bangtan Boys, my first reaction was “They’re too young!” Now, when I look back, I laugh at myself. I’ve come a LONG way in a VERY short time.

BTS is my complete package. Their looks are killer. Every.Single.One.Of.Them. With or without performance/photo shoot make up. They can sing, dance, rap, model, make me laugh and make me cry. Everything. I knew my ass was REALLY in trouble when I started to bias one of the members. Now, my life is pretty much over. Seriously. I wish I was making this stuff up.

I’ve never invested so much time, money or emotion into a group before and it’s only getting worse as time goes on. Everything they do, I want to see. Everything they sell, I want to buy. Every song they release, I want to hear. Even their pre-debut music, which BTS has a lot of and the quality is as high as their debut albums.

I have three active blogs that I currently manage, as some of you may know. My Daum is more of a stop over blog, so that I’ll get a wider audience range. It is a struggle, especially over the last three to four months, to keep their content balanced. When I started them, it was easier. Now, BTS is slowly taking over. HOWEVER, I will continue to try to keep them in check for the sake of my readers. I promise! ^^

I am currently on the second to last step on my fandom girl struggles, making friends with other members of the BTS fandom online.

The last step will be when I go to Korea in a few months and can actually attend a BTS fan sign and/or performance.  OMG. I get the shivers just thinking about it.

I am definitely in too deep.

The fandom girl struggle is REAL.

Someone, please send help…

While you are waiting for me to upload pics of the men in the white coats taking me away, check out my BTSing post. ~ _ ~

 

I’m your Noona – 나는 당신의 누나 – Bias List

The younger guys on my Bias List were ‘beating up’ the older guys ~ _ ~ and in all fairness to both groups, I decided to create 2 different lists with a maximum of 5 guys on each list.

The names of my new Bias Lists are “I’m your Noona” and “You’re my Oppa“.

The “You’re my Oppa” list will be released later. Kekeke

I had to REALLY think long and hard about who I wanted added to this list, why I was adding them and if I really thought they could beat out ALL of the others. However, truthfully speaking, only the first 3 spots are held in stone.

My lists are based on ranking 1 being “I HAVE TO see his face every day so I check all my social media to see his latest info/pics” and 5 being “I like seeing him in shows etc. but I don’t look for his latest news on the web”.

I will list their real names (Wiki), stage names (if any) and where I first saw them.

Here we go!!!

I’m your Noona – 나는 당신의 누나 – BIAS LIST

1. Jung Ho Seok aka J Hope (BTS)

2. Kwon Ji Yong aka G Dragon (Big Bang – Tonight)

3.  Jung Il Woo (Flower Boy Ramyun Shop)

4. Park Min Woo (Flower Boy Ramyun Shop)

5. Lee Min Ki (Shut Up Flower Boy Band)

What are the real ‘Oppa’ rules?

My friend and I were chatting today about my Bias list (currently only has 5 guys) and the possibility of my having to change it into two separate lists:

  1. I’m your Noona Bias List

  2. You’re my Oppa Bias List

Which brought back up the Oppa question.

Not that I plan on running around Korea and calling every guy older than me Oppa but since it is fully integrated into Korean culture, it is something that I am curious about.

I got the older brother, older male friend and boyfriend part. It’s the age part that kills me every time. With the US age and the Korean age not being the same, if you want to address someone as your Oppa, which age is the correct age to follow?

For example: If a guy was born in Korea in November 1977, he would be 36 in the US but 38 in Korea. He would turn 39 in Korea, not in November but in January.

So for a woman born in the US in November 1977, can she call him Oppa?

Based on US age he is not her Oppa but in Korean age he is.

*Please note that I was not born in November 1977 and am not using my age as this example. Kekekeke  ~ _ ~
