On My Playlist ~ Fade Away [JJ Project JB]

I do not even know where to begin. Because, in all honesty, I am not sure I have been this wrecked by an artist. I don’t know when it happened or even how it happened because I was adamant after I slowed my pace with my all-encompassing support of MBLAQ’s G.O. I was staunch in my belief that I would not fall deep ever again for an artist. I wanted to keep my interest and involvement varied, light, mild and carefree.  But the more I watch, listen and experience GOT7’s enigmatic leader, Lim Jaebeom (JB), the more I descend into his artistic lair. I am trapped my friends. And, if he continues to write, produce and record songs like today’s offering, Fade Away, there will be no escape.

On My Playlist ~ Mola [Winner]

Friends, I’m shook. You know when you listen to a song on an album and yes, it sounds and feels good but you never fully understand the impact of it until you watch and listen to it by way of a live performance? You know, when the visual concept coupled with aggressive choreography, stinging lyrics, and powerful vocals take the song to another level, whisk the group with it and make you pause a moment to say, ‘oh my god, what just happened?!’ This is exactly the mind-blowing experience I had when I watched Winner performed Mola from their latest EP release, We.

I need a moment.

On My Playlist ~ 0+1 [Kang Seung Yoon]

I know that Winner is getting ready to drop new music like any second now, but in waiting for new music it is always fortunate when a group or artist has a catalog of exceptional work in place to keep fans satisfied while they wait. In my opinion, one of those past offerings has to be one of the most beautiful love songs ever written but, to my knowledge, never officially released: Kang Seung Yoon’s 0 더하기 1 [0+1] from the web drama series We Broke Up. Seriously. The first time I heard this song was in the context of the drama and it left a deep and emotional impression on me, one that remains to this day.

[News] Winner Is Coming

On May 3rd, YG Entertainment released a comeback teaser photo announcing the release of new music from Winner coming on May 15th!! Wow…the perfect early birthday gift if I do say so myself. Yes, I am a May-baby! As much as I was hoping for a full album release, I am happy to to hear whatever the talented quartet has in store for us. And besides, I am quality over quantity kind of girl.^^ Hmmm, I notice that the 15th is 스승의날, or Teacher’s Day in Korea. Any significance? Probably not…or, perhaps just a lesson in learning that good things happen to those who wait.

[Announcement] Changing Lanes ~ The Fangirl Lane

So for months now I have been asking myself: What’s a fangirl to do when her bias changes lanes? Does she simply merge with that traffic and go with the flow? Or, does she take an exit to something new essentially following suit and . . . change lanes herself?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 728

More nostalgia today because G.O’s variety show bank is filled with hours and pictures of memories. And you know how much I enjoy traveling back to them and sharing them here. It is a Wednesday, Day 728 of this countdown and there are three days remaining in G.O’s service. It is also the day of love, Valentine’s Day. However, I love on G.O every day so every day is like Valentine’s Day to me.^^ Anyway, my rule book for this V Day is calling for some cute and adorable G.O to help perk up the mid-week and maybe even make you all hearts-in-eyes swoony. Let’s go back to a November 2010 recording of SBS’s long-running and very popular variety show, Star King.
