Waiting For Donghun ~ Celebrating Under 400 Days!! (Day 240)

You wouldn’t mind if I was a little sneaky with today’s DH One Shot, would you? Because . . . it is another milestone day and I am feeling happy and cheeky! Donghun officially has UNDER 400 DAYS remaining in his service!! And…well, I kind of felt like something playful. I came across a GIF that is indeed playful, only Donghun is not alone. It just so happens that little bias wrecker of a maknae of mine joins him in this GIF and I guess it is just my sneaky way of getting two for the price of one today . . . hehe. Trust me, the cute is worth it, especially if you have a soft spot for Chan which is easily had even if he is not your A.C.E bias. He is without question the A.C.E mood maker and resident happy pill and it is well-documented that even our eldest, Mr. Lee, has a super soft spot for this cheeky maknae. So, if you don’t mind, humor me.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Celebrating 200 Days! (Day 200)

Back on May 17, 2019, A.C.E released their EP, Under Cover. It must have been serendipity, destiny or fate as that’s my birthday, and it was the Under Cover tour that same year that roped me in and created a new Choice. We were meant to be, right? Anyway, the entire Under Cover EP is awesome but it has two of my all time favorite A.C.E B-sides, If You Heard and Mr. BassMr. Bass is the subject of my Hunnie Cam offering today in celebration of 200 days served! Yay! Donghun in a suit, dancing to the funky Mr. Bass is really all a girl could ever need to celebrate this milestone. So, let’s hop in the A.C.E time machine and head to the International Youth Center fan sign event on June 1, 2019.

[Musings] CIX Is Coming!

I think it is safe to say that when A.C.E’s leader Junhee went into the Army back on February 7th, I fell into a bit of a K-pop malaise. With three members off to serve their country and a fourth (Byeongkwan) scheduled to go this month, I was really feeling the sting of this hiatus. Perhaps it is because individually as well as collectively, A.C.E has always been a strong presence in my K-pop realm. From a purely fan service perspective, they were there, every day – and, especially Jun. A day did not go by without him updating. I am honestly missing him more than I am missing Donghun..but, shhhhh, don’t tell DH!! I started to wonder if maybe I was hitting my K-pop fangirl expiration date. And then news of CIX having their first US tour, AND coming to my city, was announced. I have to say, I felt the shift, the squee as it were, and realized that I still have a whole lot of fangirl left in me! If you are not familiar with CIX, I hope I can persuade you to have a look and listen . . . and perhaps if they are coming to a city near you, coax you to go out and support this incredibly talented quintet.

Okay . . . how about we do it with A.C.E’s last comeback, the energetic Changer? Sounds good to me! So buoyant and fun, Changer is the perfect mood for any celebration!

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 99

Are you ready for something a little dramatic? Everything about the Siren:Dawn era felt dramatic, the bulk of which were the tantalizing teasers. I found myself hitting that ‘Save Photo’ button more times than I care to admit. The upside to that is that I have amassed a robust collection of potential DH One Shots to share along this countdown journey. Today another hypnotic offering of our main vocal siren. It is dramatic and visually spectacular which kind of comes part and parcel with Donghun.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 98

Okay, first let me collect myself over seeing Donghun in Paris. One of my favorite vocalists in one of my favorite cities. That’s a double bonus! Ok, now that that is out of the way, time to get Day 98 on the books as perhaps one of the more frivolous posts you will see during this countdown. But, I thought it a decent subject to broach even if it is outside of the Donghun’s vocalist realm. It is not, however, out of his fashion and style realm. There was a time when Donghun was updating A.C.E social media accounts with what he called Daily Dong Dong and it was basically him sharing his OOTD (Outfit Of The Day). So cute! Honing one’s fashion sense as a celebrity comes part and parcel with the job and Donghun understands the assignment. For this Dong Dong fashion sense post, I am going to focus on hats and headwear. Be it beanie or beret, bucket or baseball, Donghun wears them all well.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 97

I don’t think we have had an occasion to discuss the opening track of A.C.E’s HJZM:The Butterfly Phantasy yet, have we? Well, I guess this DH Dance Break is as good time as any to talk about the bombastic and tantalizing Golden Goose. It’s one of those songs that slaps you around in a good way and the choreography, menacingly sexy.

On My Playlist ~ Home Alone [Luminous]

Lately I have been turning my attention to lesser known, under-appreciated and/or rookie groups (especially those who debuted during COVID) and taking a break from big name comebacks – all bets are off however if GOT7 releases something new collectively as a group. I feel like staying on this vacay from the big agency groups while continuing to dive into the unknown or, little known, just getting started and/or underrated K-pop pool of groups – of which their are many. The newly debuted Luminous falls into that category nicely and are worth a look and listen.
