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?

Check out my posts about past years’ ISACs!

READY, SET, ISAC!

🎁 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MINGYU OPPA

April 6th, it’s SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu‘s birthday~~

tumblr_o1ggmfbVAr1uy26b9o2_1280

Today is Kim Mingyu’s 19th birthday (20th in korean age). He is a member of the Korean boy group SEVENTEEN (they are under Pledis Entertainment) in which he is the main rapper and face of the group; he is part of the Hip-Hop unit.

Mingyu’s specialties are rapping and acting. He trained for four years before debuting with SEVENTEEN on May 29th, 2015.

SEVENTEEN are still rookies so some of you might not know much about them yet… here are some facts about Mingyu!

He wants to try acting in the future;

His favorite number is 17 (¬‿¬)

Mingyu was once voted as the most handsome member by the other members. It’s quite hard to choose who’s better looking in SEVENTEEN… but is it just me or does Mingyu resemble Kim Soo Hyun a little?

His ideal type is a girl who is tall, kind-hearted and easy-going. I’m 163cm tall… it’s not much is it (╥﹏╥)

You can find out more about Mingyu here !

yaaAAAAASSSS SEVENTEEN’S COMEBACK IS APPROACHING IM SO READY FOR IT

I still remember the day they debuted and I can’t believe it’s been almost a year… One thing is for sure though, these boys keep exceeding my expectations and I can’t wait to find out out what’s in store for them! Happy birthday Mingyu oppa~ work hard and stay healthy, 화이팅~~~♥♥

🎁 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MINGYU OPPA

SEPTEMBER 10TH | SEVENTEEN “MANSAE” COMEBACK!

fb89957865b50f2be4924cee1d5b357af1e2d2ac_hq

Hey there, Carats! wOHOOO THUMBS UP FOR SEVENTEEN’S OFFICIAL FAN CLUB NAME WOOP WOOP
This seemed to have happened ages ago – four months is indeed quite the time – but I’m still not over how amazing this comeback was.
SEVENTEEN, definitely one of the best rookie groups that debuted last year and have been non-stoppable since their debut last year – exactly nine months ago (hoLY SHEITHJDJS).
Last September they dropped their second mini album entitled Boys Be which compiled my jams for soooo long. It might be too soon to state this but SEVENTEEN keep blowing me away because of how ridiculously talented they are.
Their choreos are always great. If you were satisfied with the choreo for Adore U then there’s no way you weren’t amazed with Mansae! It’s interesting that they know very well how to take advantage of the fact that there are so many members to always come up with such creative choreographies.
It is also amazing that they work so hard to produce their own songs – which by the way, I’m happy that it is becoming more usual among K-Pop idols. Mansae was probably one of the best comebacks of the end of 2015, it’s very uplifting, catchy and still summerish, perfect for the time of the year in which it was released. That’s also something that makes SEVENTEEN very talented comparing to other groups, the fact that they have such great sense of opportunity and are able to produce amazing hits. I also love the lyrics of this song, they’re super cute and tell a story that, probably most teenagers can relate to.
I also really liked the music video. It was very colorful, fun and resembled the story the lyrics mentioned. Check out the Mansae music video here if you haven’t yet!
Finally, the other songs in this mini album are amazing and I must be honest and say they exceeded my expectations! My favorites are definitely Fronting and Mansae, but they’re all super catchy and really make you want to dance. There’s also When I Grow Up, which is performed by the vocal unit, it’s so beautiful (ToT)/~~~
I hope Carats keep on supporting SEVENTEEN and that they keep receiving their very well deserved recognition! These boys are so humble, kind and have so much potential, I really wish them the bet of luck in the future!
If you’re new in the fandom, welcome, Carat~~

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.

fotografia (5) fotografia 4 fotografia 1 (3)

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~~

Cute family photo (sorry for the poor quality but it’s the best we can get).

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 (¬‿¬)

fotografia 3 (4)

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 ~~

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY

[takes deep breath]

Seeing your idols change hair color more often than you drink a glass of water is something you easily get used to after you become a KPop stan buT SOMETIMES ITS JUST TOO MUCH TO HANDLE.

PLEDIS HAS NO LIMITS HONESTLY DO YOU PEOPLE WANT OUR HORMONES TO EXPLODE I MEAN

[takes deep breath]

As if it wasn’t enough to debut a hella good group last May – which, by the way, probably is the first group that didn’t went through the ugly debut phase in the history of KPop – Pledis had the brilliant idea to change Jeonghan’s hair color, from a majestic and delicate brown to an ANGELIC MAGICAL SILVERY FAIRY DUST SPRINKLED BLONDE out of thin air. And what better occasion to show off your new hairstyle than the Idol Star Athletics Championships?? None!! Because seeing your idols being cute & hot & sporty & active & having fun doesn’t give the fans enough feels already!! Right??

I lovelovelove Jeonghan’s princess hair but… maybe… getting it slightly trimmed wouldn’t be a bad idea… ? It’s just that his ponytail is almost as long as mine lmao. Just kidding. But seriously.

BTW CONGRATS ON YOUR SILVER MEDAL SEVENTEEN!! HWAITING!~~♡♡

SOMEBODY STOP PLEDIS

HELLO HELLO, WELCOME!

Hey there! This is my first post on this blog so I should probably introduce myself… right?

My name is Cat, I’m 16 and I’m from Lisbon, Portugal. You know, that tiny little country between Spain and the Atlantic? We don’t speak brazilian nor spanish by the way. We speak portuguese.

Anyway, this is what I look like

sorry… I’m not exactly a selfie expert

Since this is my first post I don’t want to make it too long.

The reason why I decided to create this blog?

I once had a blog about my daily life, fashion, makeup… but it didn’t feel like me. It was lacking something that meant a lot and had an important role on my everyday life – the fangirl side of me. Just like many teenagers nowadays, I’m a fangirl. However, I tend to hide it because I know how people usually look down at us. They think we’re shallow and dumb, but what’s so wrong about looking up to certain people we connect to through either music, TV, cinema or something like that? It doesn’t mean we aren’t smart or decent people.

I don’t want to go too deep in this subject because this is my first  post. The point of this blog isn’t to change those people’s minds, I actually try to avoid people who think that way. I’m here to share fangirl feels and emotions with people like me – fangirls. Or fanboys.

If you are going to read my blog (which I hope you do), don’t expect me to:

– write about one artist only;

– write only about fangirling.

This is supposed to be about my daily life as a fangirl, of course, my life doesn’t revolve around my idols every second of the day. I’m a girl and I like girly things. Like I mentioned before, I used to have a blog about fashion and makeup. Those things are two other passions of mine so you should expect a few posts about it.

As for what makes me fangirl… the list is long, seriously. Before I get into that, there’s something you should know if you’re going to read my blog. I will not tolerate any kind of hate/rude/disrespectful comments or attitudes torwards the artists I stan. It’s okay if you don’t like them but it’s not okay to be disrespectful or rude just because I don’t have the same taste as you.

Things that make me fangirl…

Like I said, the list is long.

If ou say music I will think of One Direction as easily as I’ll think of The 1975, or I’ll think of Ed Sheeran as easily as I’ll think of EXO.

Basically I listen to (as in “what artists can we find on Cat’s phone?”) : All Time Low, AOA, APink, Ariana Grande, B1A4, BIGBANG, Blackbear, BTOB, BTS, CNBLUE, Conor Maynard, Ed Sheeran, EXID, EXO, f(x), Girl’s Day, SNSD, GOT7, Halsey, Hey Violet, HIGH4, HotShot, INFINITE, IU, LABOUM, LADIES’ CODE, Lovelyz, Major Lazer, Mamamoo, Meghan Trainor, Momoiro Clover Z, MyName, Oh My Girl, One Direction, Pierce The Veil, R5, Red Velvet, SEVENTEEN, Shawn Mendes, SHINee, SISTAR, TEEN TOP, Troye Sivan, Wonder Girls, 5 Seconds Of Summer, The 1975… These are the ones that mean the most to me.

If you say books I will instantly start talking about how devoted I am to John Green, Rainbow Rowell and Cassandra Clare.

As for series, I actually watch a bunch (still not as many as I’d like to) but there’s only one I follow religiously – The Vampire Diaries. If you also follow it then we’re both waiting for the next season. Meanwhile, I’ve let several kdramas ruin my life. Ruin in a good way. Kdramas are probably the greatest thing I came across after I became a kpop stan (after kpop itself of course). They’re all sooo good and adicting and honestly better than many american series (but I’ll leave that discussion for another time).

I guess that’s about it, I’m sure you’ll get to know me a lot better if keep on reading my blog though.

There’s only a little disclaimer I’d like to give you. Don’t expect me to constantly write about gossip related to my idols. I might comment some things, I still have the right to have an opinion right? But don’t expect me to stalk every person they hang out with or feed pointless rumors, that’s not the type of blog I want to run. Besides, isn’t the daily drama on twitter enough?

Alright, cya xxx
