Life of a K-pop fan.

Greetings! Welcome to my blog!

Being a K-pop fan is a blessing. There’s no doubt about that! You have different groups to support with so much talent to offer, incredibly good looking people to bias, debuts and so much MERCHANDISE. In some way’s it’s almost like a dream where you can’t see yourself with out it.

But then, it is sometimes a nightmare. Fan wars, scandals, disbandment’s… it can be difficult at times.

So today I am writing a post about ‘Life of a K-pop fan’, because I’m sure quite a few people can agree with me with some of the things I list, and I also want soon-to-be K-pop fans to know what it’s like to be a fan in the K-pop community.

1- Fan Wars

Fan war’s often occur. Especially after an award ceremony or a debut. Why do they happen? I’m not really sure. But what I do know is that sometimes it will be over a debut where a group has a similar concept or choreography to another group. When your fandom gets caught up in a fan war, hold on to your heads! There are even times when it get’s extremely nasty. When I say nasty, I mean involving the dead. Yeah. You read that correctly. Here’s an example:

This was shortly after the leaving of Zayn from 1D and the death of EunB (R.I.P angel) ‘Sad’ doesn’t even begin to describe.

 

2- Scandals

When your bias or bias group are caught up in a scandal, it gets pretty intense. No one knows the truth, but all you can do is pray and believe that it’s not true! Some scandals can even ruin an idol’s career! That’s how bad they are!

3- Disbandments

I know what it’s like to have a group you love disband. And let me tell you this…it isn’t nice. Especially when it’s the group that got you into K-pop in the first place. But you have to remember, it’s probably for the good and all good things have an end.

4- Most thing’s remind you of K-pop.

No matter where I go, there will always be something that reminds me of K-pop. For example: When I was in science, we were learning about the meanings of endothermic and exothermic…(you already know where I’m going with this XD)

When I think of Exothermic, I think of:

Exothermic- gives off heat… how does that relate to EXO? Not only the name but when I think of EXO, I associate them as ‘Hot’. Therefore giving off heat. Thank you EXO for getting me a passing grade in Science XD

See what I mean?

5- Merchandise

When you start getting into the community, you notice that there is merchandise you can can purchase. But BEWARE! Once you buy merchandise, you can not stop! When it’s there, you want it. You want to show your support for your idols. But seriously. Be careful XD

6- Concerts

By god. When your bias is having a concert near you, it’s like a gift from god. But CAUTION. If you want tickets, get them as soon as they are available because 9 times out of ten, they sell out with minutes. That’s how popular K-pop really is.

Image result for kpop concertImage result for kpop concertImage result for kpop concert

Trust me, K-pop concerts are SO worth it! The vibe you get is indescribable! If there was a word that had the meaning of amazing, extraordinary and inspiring, I would use it to describe the vibe XD

7- Non-K-pop fans

Sometimes non-K-pop fan’s don’t understand. They either disrespect you for liking another culture, tease you for listening to something that’s different and over react. By that, I mean racism. I often get it for liking K-pop, but you know what? I couldn’t care less about what others think. If I want to listen to K-pop then I will. I don’t need others input about what I can and can’t like. And you shouldn’t worry either 🙂

8- Meeting your bias

THERE IS NOT A WORD TO DESCRIBE THIS FEELING. There really isn’t. When you meet your bias…..you die a little inside because it doesn’t seem real. It’s something you dream about and fantasize. You practice how you will act, but then when the time comes, your mind goes blank and you just don’t know what to do!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and can sorta relate XD. Please don’t feel ashamed for liking something that’s different. Your only being culturally diverse and that means a lot. It’s also what makes you, YOU! So enjoy it!~

See ya!

SISTAR Disbandment

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

This is the 2nd group disbandment post I have written this week, and at the moment I am praying I don’t have to write another for the rest of the year 😥

I’m not sure if you guys have heard, but it is indeed true that SISTAR are disbanding and I am so sad about it. SISTAR was one of the first K-POP girl groups I ever got into and I can’t believe that they are splitting!

After 7 long years they have decided to split, and will be releasing their last album on the 31st May. As a farewell, each member has written a personalised letter to STAR1’s.

Hyolyn:

To the STAR1s that have always loved and supported SISTAR.
Hello, it’s SISTAR’s leader Hyorin. It’s already been 7 years since SISTAR debuted. The time I spent as SISTAR’s Hyorin along with SISTAR and my fans was a precious time that I wouldn’t change for anything else. They were like a dream. Now, the SISTAR members will be going our own ways for our 2nd life. I want to sincerely thank our fans that let us know how happy and lucky we were to sing, to go on stage, to be loved, and to love others. We are putting behind a big sadness and supporting each other’s dreams, and will be working our best to grow in our own areas. The members and STAR1, who I love, will remain forever in my heart. STAR1 are precious and have always given me abundant love and strength even though I was lacking. Thank you with all my heart. I love you..

Bora:

STAR1, hello, it’s SISTAR’s Bora.

I told fans every year that we should be happy, and I hope that you were all happy for the seven years you spent with us. The time that I spent with STAR1 and SISTAR members was happy and precious. I think that I couldn’t show my sincerity to as much as people as I tried to, and my disappointment at not being able to do the best for you as SISTAR gets bigger. When fans told me they got strength from my brightness, I got stronger. I won’t forget that and keep getting stronger.

Even as I write this, I have so many memories. Now, the members have agreed to support our own road. But it’s not that we won’t get to see you again, so I’ll work to be a good Yoon Bo Ra from now on. All the STAR1 that loved SISTAR and Bora, I was thankful and happy you were with us. Let’s keep being happy. I love you ^^

Soyou:

It’s already been 7 years. I think I was happier during happy times and had it better during hard times because of the members and STAR1 that were always next to me. When I look back, I’m sad and sorry that I couldn’t spend that much time with our fans. No matter what stage I stand on from now on, I won’t ever forget this feeling I have for the members and our fans. I love you, I’m sorry, and thank you. I’ll let you hear good music. Let’s all be happy until the last moment.

Dasom:

To STAR1.
Hello everyone, it’s Dasom. It’s been a while.
I have a lot I want to tell you, but I’m worried about what to start with.
It’s been 7 years since SISTAR debuted. I want to first thank everyone who have always supported us and loved us during this long period.
I think I was able to happily finish the 7 years with you, when it could have been hard. And it was also motivation for all of us to grow.
It’s very sad, but SISTAR has decided to go our separate ways after this album is finished. We received so much love as SISTAR, and we want to give it back bit by bit by ourselves from now on. I will try to communicate more with fans from now on. Please support us. Thank you.

I really hope that the girls do well in the paths they have chosen. And I hope they find happiness in the decisions they will make from now on. Their talents will not be forgotten and I wish them luck!

Good luck Girls!

HISTORY Disbandment

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

I’m sure quite a few of you have already heard the news about HISTORY…. and to be honest…I am really sad about it…:'(

I went to see HISTORY live in London, and I also had the pleasure to meet them. It was one of the best nights I’ve ever experienced! They were all so professional and tried their best to speak English to us. Their efforts were greatly rewarded by the screaming fans who were shouting for an encore XD

Their 4 years together were indeed great ones. And it’s a shame to see such a talented group with so much more to offer, disband. But I’m sure they had their reasons and I respect that. I hope that they all stay friends and do well with whatever life throws at them XD

(Apologies for the blur, I was shaking XD)

(I’m so so grateful that I had this opportunity! And I will never forget it! Even if my sister got to stand next to my bias. I still had the upper hand XD)

When It was time to leave, the members were bowing to the fans and the fans were waving and saying goodbye and then…..DUN DUN DUNNNNN Kyungil turned to me and bowed! I literally died inside. I acted upon instinct and bowed back, unsure of what to do. And he looked at me and just stared as I walked away…..it was like I was in an anime or a fanfiction or something.  (I hope I didn’t do anything wrong! XD)

I watch so much k-drama’s that bowing has become a habit to the point that I will do a small bow when I say thank you to someone. (For example: At the shops, when someone holds a door for me, accepting something like a leaflet…XD)

Anyway, like I said before, I hope the members of HISTORY will stay friends and live a happy life! They are all so talented and I hope they do well for many years to come!

Hectic Day…

Hey guys, welcome to my blog!

How’s everyone’s day been today? Mine’s been…..messy I suppose? XD I’ve spent the entire day doing nothing but my art work XD It’s taking a lot of time but I know it will all be worth it in the end! 🙂

Anyway, part of my art work is a hand drawn picture of me that is split in two. By that I mean one side of me is colorful and eccentric which represents my outer character whilst the other side is robotic and quite dark which represents my inner character. (The robotic side represents obedience and how everyone follows a daily routine like a robot would be programmed to)…..(I’m not a robot!!……or am I?….)

(Well! This is it!!….)

Although it’s not quite finished, I am proud of it! Not only that but I did base it off of BIGBANG’s T.O.P in Fantastic Baby.

Just the outfit though XD. I have fake hair I was going to dye blue, but the hair is dark and I’d have to bleach it, then dye it. But it does have the oxygen mask the members wear! So yeah 🙂

I swear I’m really close with this! I’m actually really excited to finish it so I can show you all! 🙂

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I should finish my work by tomorrow so, stay tuned for more!! XD

See ya!

My School Talent show

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

A little while ago, I did two posts about my school talent show and about how I wasn’t sure what song to do and what not…well. Two days ago, I did my performance in front of over a hundred people and I danced to….TAEYANG-RINGA LINGA!!

I was FREAKING out. Wouldn’t you be? Dancing. By yourself. In front of a hundred people. I was so worried that I’d forget the moves! But thankfully, my family and friends came to support me and I couldn’t of been happier! Although I did forget the moves a couple of times so I improvised..XD

My sisters partner and my mum recorded my performance but unfortunately, the site will not allow me to attach the footage. But I will upload it on my Facebook page so you guys can check it out!

I must say, I was so nervous about my performance that I nearly threw up twice XD And I didn’t win either. But you know what? I’m so glad I did it. I’m proud of myself for getting up on that stage and doing what I love. The experience of being on that stage was exhilarating. If I could do it again, I would! XD

After my performance, I had a girl come up to me and she was so happy with me that I did Taeyang-Ringa Linga and said about how she heard the intro and went nuts! XD I was so over-joyed to meet another K-pop fan! Not only that but I heard that some of the audience commented on Taeyang’s song and said about how it was a ‘Tune’ and that it had a ‘good beat’ which is even better! (YES..SPREAD THE LOVE..SPREAD THE LOVE OF K-POP..)

Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys in on how my show went and I really appreciate the support I received!  I had quite a few people at school come up to me and tell me that I did good..and my science teacher decided to show my performance to all his science classes..including mine…XD

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I enjoyed writing it!

See ya!

My School Talent Show:Update!

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

A little while ago I did a post about my school talent show and how I plan to audition and what-not. In the end I chose to dance to EXO-Call Me Baby and two days before the audition, I learned all the choreography and sorted an outfit XD. I know, I know it was SO last minute but hey! I think I did well. The judge (my drama teacher) said “I didn’t know you took dance!” I was like ” I don’t. I dance at home though. I’m self taught.” She couldn’t believe it XD

Any way, she told me that next week the list of people who got through will be put up outside the drama office. So, on Monday I went to the drama office and there was a list.

20170313_121737.jpg

(Names were blanked for privacy reasons)

But as you can see, I made the cut! I’m a finalist for my talent show! I literally died when I saw my name and I just couldn’t wait to tell everyone! Especially my family!

At the bottom of the list is says about a meeting that was yesterday. Unfortunately, I missed it because I was in an exam, BUT I was able to get the information needed at lunch which was good XD

It turns out I have a mentor who I speak to if I need rehearsal space or props for my performance! I’m super excited and I have around two weeks until my live performance in front of parents and then the ENTIRE SCHOOL!!!!!!

For my live performance, I have to do a new routine and to be honest, I’m a little stuck! I was thinking of doing a mashup but I’m not sure. Do you guys have any suggestions? I would REALLY appreciate it!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! If you have any song suggestions please let me know!!!

See ya!

K-pop Dreams?!?!?

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about all my dreams I’ve had over the past year. Some have been good, some bad, some freaky and some…..lets just say weird. XD But the ones that have called out to me most are my K-pop dreams.

Here is a list of some of the groups that have made a guest appearance :

  • BIGBANG
  • 2PM
  • VIXX
  • BLOCK B
  • BTS
  • INFINITE

I know I haven’t listed any girl groups and I think it because I listen to male groups a tinsy bit more than I do girl groups…XD

ANYWAY, the reason why BIGBANG is at the top is because they have made more guest appearances in my dreams than any other group. Its really odd to be honest because I haven’t listened to them or any K-pop for that matter because I find I get distracted, especially around exam time which is now XD

Actually, more or less its actually mostly A BIGBANG member…..okay it’s T.O.P….XD

I don’t know why though! I don’t always watch videos of them on shows or their music videos unless it’s to learn choreography or to check out a comeback or something… (I know that not watching them is sacrilege but I find I have proper fan girl moments and I’m trying to keep myself under control….but it’s SO HARD)

I think one of my favorite dreams I’ve had that starred T.O.P was when I was a secret agent and had to rescue him from kidnappers XD It was literally the BEST DREAM EVER.

Here it is:

I’m running down a corridor with a hand gun in my hand and I have a radio on my belt. I hear screaming in a room so I break in and find T.O.P strapped to a wall and he’s being tortured with electric ray guns (Do they exist? XD) . The kidnappers are dressed in black and have masks covering their faces. They lunge at me and some how I beat them up (I probably bell flopped them or something…). I untie T.O.P and hand him his shirt. (Did I mention he was shirtless?)

We run down a different corridor and end up in a giant hall that is full of people dressed in ball gowns and tuxedos.(It was a masquerade ball by the way). The kidnappers had recovered and where chasing after us so I pulled T.O.P to one side to a booth that was selling dresses and tuxedos..(I thought it was quite funny really XD) We both bought something to wear and headed out onto the dance floor to blend in with the crowd so we weren’t spotted.

There was then an announcement that everyone needs to take their seats because a show was going to begin. So we went to a table and this was the lay out:

Untitled design (4).png

Red= Random Woman      Blue= T.O.P      White= Reserved seat

Being polite I decided not to sit in the reserved seat because it was for someone else. So I asked T.O.P “Hey where should I sit?” and his reply had me fan-girling. He replied while sipping a glass of wine that appeared out of no where in particular with ” I don’t know but I want to sit with you..” (BOOM. My heart died. I honestly couldn’t believe that he said that in my dream. No wonder I was in such a good mood the next morning XD)

After my mini heart attack, we had fast forward to a field and we were running from the men again but on the field there were trampolines… and T.O.P decided that NOW would be a great time to have bounce. So there was me running, all I could think of was ‘Oh no. Their going to get us and that will be it’ and then there’s T.O.P. Not much going on just having a whale of a time bouncing on trampolines..

Unfortunately it was then that I woke up, so I don’t actually know how it ends but I’m tempted to write a story that follows the base line of my dream.

So yeah, I had one of the best dreams ever and I hope that in my dream, T.O.P had a blast on those trampolines so yeah. XD

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I apologize for not writing sooner but as I said, its exam time so I haven’t had a chance to XD.

See ya later!

Project: JACKPOT JOKER

Hey guys welcome to my blog!

I know the title sounds a little…bleh, but I can promise you there’s a reason! Ever since I was 11, I wanted to go into the fashion industry and design my own clothes plus making them. I was so determined by this ambition that I started as soon as I could. So, I took some time after school and I began designing and researching on fabrics I could use. (At the age of 11…)

It was then that I had planned what I liked to call my masterpiece and I started to bring it to life. And it was then that project: JACKPOT JOKER was born.

IMG_20150607_201136.jpg

I worked so hard on this, I even had ‘JACKPOT * JOKER’ sewn round the collar that I had done by hand and I had never been so proud of myself before. I took an idea and brought it to life! I know it looks a little tacky and yes, they are real cards but I didn’t care!

The Disney movie ‘ Princess And The Frog’ gave me inspiration for going into fashion because it was Tiana’s determination and enthusiasm to get her dream that gave me my determination. Also the part when her mother is making all the princess dresses and I just thought. WOW. I think I know what I’m gonna do today.Image result for princess and the frog tianas dream

Any way, the reason behind this post was because, after thinking long and hard about what I used to do 5 years ago, I decided to bring it back. And this time, it’s going to be better planned and made. But, I plan to do something a little different. Of course I will still do my ideas but I’ve also planned to make outfits that famous people have worn that you can’t buy. For example: Project: Boom-Shakalaka

Image result for bigbang top fantastic baby suit

Why not right? Yes, it will be a challenge, but I’m up for the task. I’m not going to start this though until I’ve left school, that way I’ll have more time to dedicate towards it. The reason I have code names for my plans is so I can remember them. I named T.O.P’s suit as Project: Boom-Shakalaka because that’s his famous line in Fantastic baby. Not only that but it sounds cool because no one knows what I’m on about XD

I’m hoping you guys enjoyed this post and got some use out of it. It took me some time to decide whether I should post this or not, but ya know!
