Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 15

Getting to know Donghun and learning about his artistic journey is one of the best parts of doing an extensive blog series like this countdown. If you know me or have been around the blog for some time, you probably know I am a research nerd. Even though I went into the legal field as READ MORE

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 9

If you have been around K-pop for a good amount of time, you probably know that when groups are initially formed the music they release is often times written by in-house composers and producers, or various outside production teams that are hired to do same. Even when the members of the group do write and READ MORE

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 6

A.C.E came into my K-pop fangirl realm in the fall of 2019 when I saw they were going to tour the US and Chicago was on the list. In fact, Chicago was the first US city on the tour. I had no idea who A.C.E were and, at the time I saw information regarding the tour, READ MORE

On My Playlist ~ IYAH [Kang Seung Yoon]

After what seems to have been an eternity (because basically, it was), Winner’s leader Kang Seung Yoon released his first full solo album, Page and with it the nostalgic and heartfelt title track, IYAH.

On My Screen ~ Love [Taemin]

Right now, everything also feels like a prologue as I await the release of Taemin’s Never Gonna Dance Again: Part Two. In this post I am going to fawn over B-side, Love, from Taemin’s READ MORE

Musings ~ When Your Idol Invades Your Dreamscape

I woke up this morning feeling a bit melancholic. I suppose it is not so unlikely an emotion given the current state of the world at large. It’s been a difficult year on so many levels for so many. Yet at the same time I also felt upon waking a sort of winsomeness. You see, READ MORE
