READY, SET, ISAC!

Another year, another championship!img_20170106_090124

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?

ISAC 2016 – THE GAMES ARE BACK

Good evening! (if you’re in the same timezone as me, if not, well… greetings!)

If you’re like me, an unfortnate international Kpop stan who lives in the exact opposite side of the world from Korea, this morning you probably woke up to 738318937214 updates about ISAC! Yes, five months after last year’s ISAC here we are again to talk about this event every Kpop stan hates to love.

Sadly, by the time all this was happening I was either sleeping, getting ready for school or on my way to school so I missed out on most of the important things… (comment if you can relate so I won’t feel alone!). However, I found this little compilation on Twitter of all the best moments 🙏 sO BEFORE WE GET INTO THAT I want to thank every fan that was in the audience that contributed to this and constantly updated all the stans on every thing that was happening! (legimately. everything. I remember reading a tweet saying “Jimin sneezed“).

Now onto the highlights of ISAC 2016!

Starting with how groups were teamed up… CAN I GET AN AMEN OHMYGOD MONSTA X AND SEVENTEEN SAVE ME EVERY TIME.

I don’t want to sound biased but I’m serious when I say BTS x GOT7 x TWICE x BESTie team (aka “We Are Going Till The End” Team – they entitled themselves) gave me life. Well, not so much for BESTie because I don’t stan them – it’s not like I don’t like them, I just don’t really support them on a daily basis. As for BTS, GOT7 and Twice, well let’s just say they’re all part of my faves.

(while I’m trying not to focus on Jungkook’s sharp profile on the picture above) can we talk about how good Min Yoongi looks in glasses?

Oh, and here.

Also, everyone’s favorite mom Kim Seokjin brought a whole bunch of food to share with his friends! Later on, he was spotted handing rice cakes to other idols~ could he be more precious?

At some point, Yoongi hyung decided that Taehyung donsaeng’s fringe was probs bothering him and this happened. Cutie Kim Taehyung happend.

As expected, the interactions between BTS and GOT7 were endless. There aren’t many photos though… MBC keeps the same dumb policy from last year and I’m already hoping it won’t cause trouble to post all these… though I’m worried (but previews are everywhere and to be honest I don’t think MBC staff will find my blog let’s be real)

Here we can appreciate very good looking Yugyeom and Bam Bam~~

Here’s a glimpse of BTOB being extra during the arrow match thingy. Rumor says Eunkwang’s the one looking like a centaur and that Jimin and Taehyung kept playing around in his custom (¬‿¬)

All of APink were looking super cute – as always, as you can see here Naeun looks like an adorable eight year old (✿◠‿◠) and Namjoo looking flawless by just standing there. There’s also Changsub being Changsub. Oh, and half Daehyun.

Here’s a little gift to all Eunrong stans out there. You’re welcome ≧◠‿◠≦✌

On other news, there’s a whole other bunch of things that happened during today’s ISAC for which I couldn’t find any photos. I won’t try very hard though, still regarding the MBC policy issue…

But, here are some other highlights:

  • Jin and Taehyung came disguised as cameraman in maks
  • Loads of interactions between BTS, BTOB, VIXX, B.A.P. and Monsta X
  • Yoongi and Woozi greeted each other (FATHER AND SON REUNITED)
  • Namjoon discovered the wonders of a selfie stick other than taking selfies such as scratching his back, playing golf and waving it around!
  • Twice bought food for fans

Ya’ll probably wanted to know a bit more, right? Same. The results of some competitions are also on the internet but I really think it’s better not to share those as I think it’s even worse than sharing photos. One thing’s for sure though, every team gave their best and above that, everyone had fun!

I’m also sorry that I basically only spoke about BTS but ya’ll know how their one of my favorite groups and I swear to you 90% of all the info I found was about them. I may post more about this though if I come to find more highlights regarding other idols or you can comment anything I missed that you found important!

Until next time, ISAC ~~

ISAC 2016 – THE GAMES ARE BACK

MBC IS THREATNING US?

Every KPop stan knows the Idol Star Athletics Championships equals social media flooded with videos and photos of our favorite groups being all cute, hot and sporty (one of the reasons why I’m thankful for this event). Since probably 80% of the audience are fangirls, it’s obvious that they will take photos and film videos and share them everywhere possible, so why bothering to take such drastic measures when they don’t want the photos to leak?

I had already read on or two tweets about this a couple days ago, some people were saying we shouldn’t share photos of our idols before ISAC aired (set to air on September 26th, over a month from today) because MBC could edit them out. It made no sense to me and since everyone on my tl kept sharing them so I thought it was just a random rumor. However, today there was a bunch of people talking about it and even one of my friends sent this to our group chat:

mbcmustbjokingrn

She also added that last year Teen Top got edited out due to their fans sharing photos and videos on social media and it got me worried. I didn’t have to delete anything because I didn’t post anything by chance, just retweeted a few photos. But because there was people posting at every minute.

I understand why they don’t want some things to leak, like who won what, but they should take the measures to avoid it before the event starts instead of threatning to edit out certain artists, that’s pointless and unfair. I just hope this wasn’t more than a warning and that anyone is left out… !

MBC IS THREATNING US?

SO LONG, BLONDE KOOKIE

Farewell, blonde Jungkookie… Seems like SEVENTEEN’s Jeonghan wasn’t the only one who showed up at ISAC with a new hair color, our golden maknae is back to black hair [sighs], since it’s ISAC “season” it didn’t take long to find out about Jungkook’s not-so-new hair color through all the videos and photos.

Not saying I don’t like seeing him with black hair I mean, Jungkook is my ultimate bias haha so anything will look perfectly amazingly beautifully wonderfully [I’m just making up words at this point] good on him. But I was really enjoying the golden blonde on his hair :// Hopefully we’ll meet blonde kookie again?

BTS!! CONGRATS ON YOUR BASKETBALL WIN ON ISAC SO PROUD ♡♡♡

SO LONG, BLONDE KOOKIE
