Another year, another championship!
It has been announced that the 2017 ISAC are a go! Recording is set to happen on January 16th and airing date hasn’t been announced yet. Above are the groups scheduled to take part on this edition. Please note that I’m not sure if this is the final line-up.
I was looking forward to see KARD… Guess these co-ed kings and queens still have a few things to overcome… BUT THEY WILL GET THERE
Just one question… is ALL of NCT going to take part in this? I mean
NCT U has what 6 members? Uhhh Taeil, Taeyong, Ten, Doyoung, Jaehyun, Mark. Yeah 6. Then it’s NCT 127 whis has 9 members but you gotta exclude Taeil, Taeyong, Jaehyun, Doyoung and Mark which make 5 so, 4 members. NCT Dream is 7 members but excluding Mark and Haechan its only 5 so there are 15 members… Eh now that I did the math it’s not such an extraordinary number but it’ll probably only be NCT 127 or perhaps NCT 127 + NCT U. I don’t see NCT Dream taking part in this, SM likes to keep the kids in the dungeon. We’ll see though! Are you excited about this year’s ISAC?
Check out my posts about past years’ ISACs!
December 4th, it’s BTS’ Jin’s birthday ♥♥♥
Today is Kim Seok Jin’s 24th birthday (25th in korean age). He is a member of the korean boy group BTS (aka 방탄소년단) (they are under BigHit Entertainment) in which he is a lead vocalist and visual.
Jin debuted with BTS on June 13th, 2013 with the track No More Dream. Needless to say they are currently making history, not only in the K-Pop industry but in worldwide music aswell (((((((:
If you’re not familiar with Jin yet, here’s our fandom’s favorite princess in a nutshell:
Jin aka mom, is that one human being who probably prevents BTS from setting their dorm on fire or killing each other every day. He loves cooking, aswell as eating, the color pink and Super Mario. He is kind, caring, honest, trustworthy, loyal, an overall beauty, inside and out. The absolute definition of sunshine.
Jin is one of the most underrated members in BTS – God knows why. Maybe because of his dancing? Who knows? Regardless, he is filled with talent. Even though he isn’t the leader, his guidance has been essential for Bangtan’s success, I’m extremly happy and proud to idolize someone like him.
Hope he has an amazing birthday, filled with love from his adored family and friends and that he makes wonderful new memories this year. I wish for the fandom to appreciate my bias wrecker more in the future…
All the love ^^ ♥♥♥
Yall thought I would forget? HAHA AS IF
Hey, I’m back again! Though I haven’t been able to cover the latest events and birthdays in the last weeks, I worked my ass off the be able to film, edit and have this video up in time! Of course, I would never skip on watching BTS’ comeback no matter how busy I was, but filming a reaction video is a whole other level.
How about showing some love and watch my video? ^^ Maybe drop a like…? How about subscribing? I bet you haven’t subscribed yet…
Kidding, I know you did.
Anyway, my BLACKPINK reaction video did quite well, that’s one of the reasons why I thought about doing this too! IT HIT 1K VIEWS!!!!!
Alright, let me know your feedback on this video. Please don’t be too shocked, after all, this is the first time I’m showing the surface of the fangirl inside me on YouTube. Hopefully you’ll find it relatable? Hahahah
Thank you in advance, if you watch it!
just a little ramble i had last night
here’s a post where I pour in my most true fangirl feels
As you may or may not know – depending on if you follow me on instagram – mY BTS ALBUM RECENTLY ARRIVED (recently being exactly a week ago; also don’t worry, I do plan on writing a full post reviewing the album) AND I GOT YOONGI’S PHOTOCARD AND LIKE I HAD ALSO ORDERED GOT7’S ALBUM AS MY FRIEND’S BDAY GIFT AND SHE GOT JB’S PHOTOCARD AND THEY’RE BOTH SO CUTE ANDBAJS
So basically a few minutes ago I was happily putting Yoongi’s photocard on my bedroom wall (even though the wall’s enormous and the photocard is smaller than my palm) when I suddenly got hit by this big truck called REALITY.
I’m not sure if I’ve said this here yet but it hasn’t even been a year since I got into kpop, though it’s been… woah wait, it’s been exactly 10 months.
(Yes I know the day, short story: EXO had released Call Me Baby pretty recently and it had been trending on Twitter for days and I was like “eh let’s see what’s all the hype about” and I download some of their songs that exact afternoon; I know the day because I was sick by that time and I remember that exactly two days later, on April 20th (it was a Monday) I was rushed to the hospital because I really wasn’t feeling well and it was the first time I had to go there in an ambulance and all and I was kinda scared so I never forgot the date of that day. Since I knew it was two days later I also know the day I got into kpop was on April 18th 2015!
This probably sounded so nonsense.)
Back to the meaning of this: while I was putting Yoongi on my wall I started thinking “Oh my God. Look at you putting a Kpop idol on your wall.” Because I CLEARLY remembering the first time I listened to EXO and kept thinking “This is not so bad but I don’t think I can listen to this. It makes me cringe.” But that was jut because it was something I wasn’t used to listen to. After getting familiar with their voices I instantly started enjoying their music a lot more, not just with EXO but with every kpop idol I usually listen to.
Right now I’m staring at my BTS album and I keep thinking that even on that day when I first downloaded some of EXO’s songs I never thought I would get into Kpop this deep – deep enough to buy a physical album. It’s insane. It all happened so fast, literally within less than a year.
It kind of blows my mind to look at this album and think “I truly adore these guys. They really are idols. My idols. I spent money on this. And I’m so happy to have this that will always remind me of them.” It does blow my mind, simply because I never thought I would reach this point after One Direction (yes, it’s true).
And this post is probably sounding hella sentimental right now but I’m not done yet. There’s something else that I find extraordinary.
Just now, I was opening BTS’ album and going through the pages… The first individual photo to come up is Jin’s. FIRST OF ALL LETS TALK ABOUT HOW HE SEEMS TO BE STARRING AT MY SOUL IN ONE OF THESE PICS I SWEAR I CANT LOOK HIM IN THE EYE AND THIS IS JUST A DAMN PHOTO FFS
But really. I was looking at the photo and thinking “it’s crazy how things are these days. Jin (and well the other boys too but in this case I was looking at Jin), who was born like any other ordinary kid, like I was born, in the exact opposite side of the world… Suddenly I, an ordinary sixteen year old, have this book with their photos and a CD with their voices. It sounds kind of creepy when we put that way, right? But that’s not what I mean. What I mean is, the world is so big, yet so small.
Imagine BTS (and well, any other idol you can think of), being exactly themselves, looks and personality except without their love for music and performing. If they didn’t have that in them, they wouldn’t have became idols and they would have been ordinary young men like any other. Actually, though they are famous, they’re still ordinary people. They’re just like you and me and yet there’s nobody out there with a photobook of me and CD of my voice recorded.
At this point I don’t know if I’m making myself clear anymore because it’s kind of late and I should probably go to sleep.
In conclusion, all I wanted to do with all of this was share with you how mind blowing these simple things are and how lucky I feel to have access to everything out there. Above all, I wanted to share how much Kpop has come to mean to me.
Also, don’t get me wrong when I called BTS “ordinary” I never meant it in a bad way of course. It’s a fact that they are normal human beings like all of us but I did mention how they stand out from the rest of us, they’re amazingly talented, hardworking and have this endless passion for what they do which are alone just some of the reasons to why they deserve all the recognition they have been gaining and even more ❤️
I’m off to bed now! School tomorrow… STARTS AT 10AM DON’T WORRY I ALREADY SET MY ALARM CORRECTLY NOT PLANNING ON WAKING UP TWO HOURS EARLIER AGAIN
yes, i woke up at a decent hour
Good afternoon dear reader!
Not going to lie – this post was never planned and it will probably come out quite random for some of you because Jungkook isn’t blonde anymore and hasn’t been for like half year already. However everyday when I log on wordpress I check my blog’s statistics to kind of give me a heads up on what you guys read the most on my blog and I’m telling you it’s insane how often people search for ‘blonde jungkook’ and consequently my SO LONG, BLONDE KOOKIE post is the probably one of the most read here. Based on that I decided to leave this post dedicated to all of you who want to look at blonde Kookie once again! Enjoy~
Have a nice week~~
In regards to my last post about ISAC…
SHOUTOUT TO MY FRIEND WHO SENT ME THIS THIS MORNING IT WAS THE FIRST THING I SAW AFTER I WOKE UP
Believe it or not it was pretty hard for me to write this post because I had no clue how I was going to put into words how this damn prologue made me feel – and we can’t forget the MV for RUN… but for now let’s stick to the prologue.
After I NEED U came out with the rest of the mini album 화양연화 The Most Beautiful Moment In Life, Pt. 1 we were aware that there was going to be a follow up – a part 2 however this prologue was dropped on all ARMYs like an atomic bomb in the form of an emotional roller-coast.
Disregarding of all theories on the true story behind I NEED U, this prologue was quite helpful to clear every thing up and actually understand the story behind this concept.
Only 0.3 seconds in the video and I was already emotional because of Taehyung’s scene. Without a doubt this scene is a direct follow up of I NEED U.
I don’t think many people realized this but this concept was great for showing each members’ acting skills – which are quite impressive.
The main reason why I got emotional while watching wasn’t necessarily due to the sad side of the video (because before the very end we had no clue what was still to come) but actually due to all the happy scenes. This may sound like nonsense to some people but when I care about someone it really moves me to just see they’re happy. Even though this was just a video it actually made me happy to see them having fun with all the members while doing simple things like hanging together or taking photos – creating memories or going somewhere they’ve never been to together, just being happy.
And then BAM
Alright, once again there’s no doubt of what happened – Tae jumped, tried to… yanno… take his own life (it kind of bothers me to say the actual word I don’t know why).
My heart broke a little on this scene. Just look at how Tae finally glanced at his hyung 😦
As if it wasn’t enough we still got this bonus scene where we conclude that Jin never took that photo with the other boys! Awesome!1! Right. In. The. Feels.
So here’s my theory up to this point (I must warn you this isn’t really based on other theories online because I didn’t ready any it’s just the most decent conclusion to which I got after discussing it with my friends): in the I NEED U MV we were able to see their life’s go downhill except for Jin in fact it was quite uncertain what had actually happened to him but at the time I just thought he died like the others – which would make Tae the only survivor. Turns out Tae took his own life too so Jin was the only survivor – the last scene when he’s the only one on the Polaroid is also a proof of that.
The reason why it’s so hard to make up a theory for the story behind this concept is because the scenes in I NEED U, Prologue and RUN aren’t necessarily organized chronologically. From my point of view what I concluded after watching the prologue at first was that the rest of the boys all died and Jin was left alone – which we now know isn’t the truth. But then I started wondering what the scene of Jin in the bedroom with the petals and all represented because that scene was so angelic and all it didn’t seem be happening in real life like the other members’ scenes so I thought maybe Jin is the one who died… But I gave it a little more thought later and it made zero sense so I discarded the option but well looks like I was right…?
Friendly reminder this isn’t my final theory of the whole story, I’ll write about that on my post about RUN!
Meanwhile tell me your theory on BTS’ story!
