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.

Isha2SK2015 @ SBS Drama My Love From The Star Special Exhibition

I’m back from my trip to South Korea!!!

My plan was to post from SK but we all know the best laid plans….

One of our many stops was the SBS Drama My Love From The Star Special Exhibition which is open until end of August this year.

It was….frickin’….amaze balls.

I was totally obsessed with Do Min Joon and Cheon Song I’s homes during the drama and being able to see everything in person was breath taking.

Everything was EXACTLY the same.

I was totally blown away.

They were also playing the entire MLFTS soundtrack on the over head ‘Bose-like’ quality sound system, that was totally giving me the chills as we walked around looking at all those beautiful scenes I’d only seen on the Viki app on my I Pad from all the way in the USA.

I have to say, if I had the gold coins to build and design a home from scratch, Cheon Song I’s entire home would definitely be my blue print, along with Do Min Joon’s garden area with the water moat. Droolz.

Visitors could not walk around in their homes, but the exhibit was set up so that you could walk in partially from all different angles to get great pictures.

Being able to walk in Do Min Joon’s door and shut it behind me was more that enough. LOL

When I saw their building elevator, I freaked the fak out and immediately jumped in and struck a crazy pose that had absolutely nothing to do with the drama whatsoever.

Well…you’ll see in the pics. Hehehe.

Absolutely no shame.

Enjoy!!! ^^

Heard It Through The Grapevine – Korean Drama Mini Review

Heard_It_Through_the_Grapevine-0001

*This post may contain SPOILERS!!!

Plot (Credit: asianwiki.com)

Han Jung-Ho (Yu Jun-Sang) works at a law firm. He is a powerful man and even becomes involved with the appointment of a government official. He is married to an elegant and beautiful woman, Choi Yeon-Hee (Yoo Ho-Jeong), and has a perfect son, Han In-Sang (Lee Joon). Yet, Han Jung-Ho and Choi Yeon-Hee face difficulties and various incidents after their son marries a girl they never expected as a daughter-in-law (Ko Ah-Sung).

I am currently watching Heard it through the grapevine on Viki but sometimes I watch it on Drama Cool as they may have the subs first.

Can I just say, that this drama is very refreshing in the way that every time it starts to go “to the left” and present itself as having a “typical” Korean drama plot, the kids (Han In-Sang and Seo Bom) do or say something non-typical to Han In-Sang’s parents that shocks both myself and his parents.

I have seen wayyyy too many k dramas where a Lead allows their parents to stomp all over their significant other in the most disrespectful ways for episode after episode after episode. Seeing the collaboration, understanding and young love between Han In-Sang and Seo Bom is awesome. Han In-Sang absolutely adores his new wife and baby. He practically oozes it out of his pores and it is so so sweet and somehow also very smexy to watch. His voice is so yumm…..Sorry! Got side tracked for a sec. – _ – I also like that they communicate with each other well and that even when they say or do something that his parents don’t like, it is still done in the utmost respectful way.

His parents’ reactions to this though are frickin’ HILARIOUS, seeing as their son has obviously never shown any type of disagreement to anything they’ve told him to do or say before. His parents are totally over the top with their dramatic crying, out bursts and evil-in-laws-cosplay, which being the refined and classy people they portray to the general public, seeing their son and new daughter in law push them over the edge is everything and more. It really is something special to watch. Every time they try to set some new rule or boundary, they are either politely reprimanded by the kids or caught doing the exact same thing that they as the parents said not to do.

I really look forward to how this all continues to play out. Right now, although Han In-Sang and Seo Bom are married and have a child, they are still underage. The push and pull between his parents and the kids over this technicality is interesting. Seo Bom’s parents on the other hand are more flexible. Though they are upset she wasn’t able to go to college, they are happy she is married and won’t be a single mom. Plus their new son in law is very partial to them, and will quickly apologize or try to make amends for his parents’ erratic behavior.

I also thoroughly enjoy the commentary made by Han In-Sang’s parents staff. The situation is very unexpected and totally new to them. Seeing the ‘Young Master’ put his foot down, leads to many discussions between the staff, privately of course and well out of his parents ear shot. Their comments to each other about each event that happens can almost be considered fan comments*, as I find the things they say similar to what the viewers are commenting as they watch.

*On Viki, fans can comment as they watch the shows/movies. Subs show on the bottom of the screen while viewer comments appear on the top. This feature can be turned on or off as you watch. I always have it on. It is THE BEST. Especially when someone writes the exact same thing you were thinking….or screaming.

I also love the secretaries that work in Han In-Sang’s father’s office. Since where they sit in the office is an open style seating where someone can literally pop up from any direction, when something happens that they want to discuss they speak using a mix of Japanese and Korean. The first time I heard them I was like wait…Now I cackle at the pure genius of it. Not one person in the office is on to them.

I was a little hesitant about this drama at first, I won’t even lie.

After dying laughing watching the episode when Seo Bom had the baby in Han In-Sang’s parents house five minutes after she met them, I was like “OMFGawd Yaaaassss.”

Me likey. ^.^

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. ~ _ ~
