Fangirling 2019: A Retrospective

Being forced to shelter-in-place during what is perhaps turning into one of the most incredible and frightening situations I may see in my lifetime (yes, I am talking about the COVID-19 pandemic) has given me time to reflect on the tumultuous fangirl journey I have been on these past seven years. By the close of READ MORE

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 699

When I first discovered G.O, it was indeed his voice that held the spotlight initially. This is true. But as I began to learn more about him, the more intriguing and captivating he became. I have talked about many of his endearing and fine characteristics throughout this countdown series, often times repeating them incessantly. I READ MORE

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 525

There’s always a reason for the ddaeng! When is MBLAQ and variety not a good match? I know I am biased. In all honesty, I have to confess that I have not watched other groups in variety shows outside of that hilarious Running Man episode with Seung Ho and Joon wherein there were other idol duos READ MORE

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 388

Is :56 seconds of G.O singing an excerpt from a ballad sufficient enough to place it here on the Countdown in the Vocal Virtuosity category? You bet it is. Back in May 2010, just prior to the release of MBLAQ’s second mini album Y, MBLAQ’s handsome hyung line made a stop at the MNET radio studios. In under READ MORE

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 99

It is true that my bias towards G.O will always have me believing and subsequently declaring that he is the sweetest, most talented, indeed most handsome and yes, sexiest artist I have ever had the pleasure of supporting, adoring, and some may say, obsessing over. With this series, I have tried to balance the offerings READ MORE

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 72

One cannot deny that G.O and Jung Juri had a special chemistry working opposite each other. I think one of the reasons they worked well together was that they both had great comedic timing, were not afraid to push the envelope a little, and simply liked each other. G.O has a natural comfort around women (perhaps because READ MORE

[series] 116 Reasons to Love Byung Hee: #10 ~ Undercover Cover Lover

When you wake one morning and realize all you want to do is sing, you hear music in everything. I have a feeling this is exactly what G.O felt when that realization hit. From that point on, he most likely became an ardent student of music. And although it was no doubt he was hearing READ MORE

When Your Bias Stakes His Claim

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 READ MORE

I’m Walking On Sunshine – The 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 READ MORE

My Lovable Girl…This Likeable Man

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 READ MORE
