When Your Bias Stakes His Claim

HLQh7

I have to be honest. At this time last year, I thought there was no way anyone in Korean entertainment (music, movies, drama or otherwise) was going to topple Rain from the throne in my fangirl kingdom. If you would have asked me if it this could ever happen, I would have unequivocally answered ‘No’! So please imagine my own shock when it actually did happen. And, it happened with a force and fury I was not even prepared for. I have been asked by a sweet follower of the blog who has now become a treasured friend, to expound on the how, the why and the when MBLAQ’s G.O swooped in, staked his claim as my one true bias, and yes, promptly stole me away from his former mentor, Rain. So Endang, dear…I write this post for you.♥

I’m Walking On Sunshine – The Sunshine Blogger Award

sunshine-blogger-award

An award? For moi?!! I am duly humbled and deliciously delighted that my dearest, sweetest (and inspiring) friend, Kfangurl of The Fangirl Verdict felt that I brought a little sunshine to her life and, as a result, nominated me for a Sunshine Award. And, if that wasn’t enough, my little baby MBLAQ sister, Nelly of MyMyooz also nominated me. Really, though, if ever there were rays of sunshine both here in the blogosphere and simply in general, these two darling ladies are all that and more! Kfangurl and I go way back…way, way back and I am one lucky blogger to have her in my corner as both mentor and friend. Nelly and I bonded and I mean BONDED over our mutual love, respect, and ardent adoration of MBLAQ’s main lead vocal, G.O, and this is a bond that will never be broken even in light of the latest news of alleged departure of two of the five members of the group. But…please, let’s not go there right now, because I just can’t….

So let me first say thank you to both Kfangurl and Nelly for the nom – I love both of you, lots!! Like this:

And now, what’s the deal with this award?

Tireless and prolific, Blaqstick never ceases to amaze me with the volume of pictures and videos they share with us. I always look forward to the exquisite offerings of this wonderful team.

My Lovable Girl…This Likeable Man

third-teaser-trailer-and-new-poster-for-the-Korean-drama-My-Lovely-Girl

I owe a lot to Rain. In fact, I owe him everything for where (and most likely who) I am today in my short, but turbulent career as a fangirl. He put South Korea on the map for me in more ways than one. He led me to MBLAQ’s G.O (and I am forever grateful – *bows* profusely to Rain). Contrary to probably the opinion (and belief) of many, I still have a very special place in my heart for Ji Hoon. And, I certainly have a deep and strong admiration for him as an actor, singer, and performer. Most importantly, however, I have a sound respect for him as a man. So when I heard he was returning to the small screen in way of a 16-episode drama entitled My Lovable Girl, my interest was piqued.

A New Beginning – The Fangirl Adventure Log

Fangirl Adventure Log Header 1

On May 19, 2014 I will have been here occupying this space in the blogosphere for one year having decided to create a homage to the lovely male stars in both the Korean drama and Korean pop worlds. All total I featured a big whopping 5 ‘shots.’ Not much of an accomplishment, however, they were all worthy of having a spot in this weak homage! I can say with honesty I loved on each of them very much and can only hope I did them some (a little) justice.

Fangirl Confessional: Forever Jung At Heart

GO and Rain

I think I am suffering from “Double Jung Syndrome.” You know that uncontrollable and feverish urge to love on two Jungs at once? Yes, I am here to set the record straight on my fan girl affliction mostly because I have been living with the fear of being ostracized by the Cloud (Rain’s fans are called ‘Clouds’) community for showering my love, affection and attention on another Jung besides Jung Ji Hoon – Jung Byung Hee (also known as G.O, main vocalist for MBLAQ).

The Back Up Dancer That Could

I know that this is going to come as no surprise, but I woke this morning thinking about Rain.  I was thinking how awesome it must be that he finally completed his military service and that he is able to enjoy his time exactly the way he wants to enjoy it.  I was thinking about how hard he has worked to get where he is today and how his rise to fame was no easy task.  Of course, I am ALWAYS thinking about how handsome he is and how his beauty both inside and out just takes my breath away.

Then I remembered this video.  He was only a back up dancer at this point and this only a rehearsal,  yet all the signs were there of what was to unfold.

When I watch Rain in these early clips, I am constantly reminded of how he performs from somewhere deep within himself and how he never fails to give 200%, even when just a back up dancer.   So, I wanted to come here to share it even though I am quite sure every Rain fangirl out there has seen it (and likely more than once)!  It is still a potent reminder of his incredible talent and that his hunger to succeed and be the best is a constant source of inspiration not only to himself, but to many of us who admire him so much.  Dance on, Rain….

Nothing Compares to Him

In all my spazzed out fangirl glory, I made a video paying homage to Rain. I think I have successfully crossed over into obsessed fangirl-land. It’s a fun (and exhausting) place! I am one week away from departing for Seoul and two from Rain’s discharge from the ROK Army. It’s an exciting time for me, for him, and for the countless fans across the globe.  ♥♥♥
