Trying To Keep Up With Kpop + School + Minzy’s Solo Debut

So as you may or may I have not been putting up regular Blogs as I promised. I am really sorry. I just finished my exams today and boi….I have a good feeling about it ūüôā

When I was back home I asked myself how do people with college lives even manage to keep up with New Kpop Videos that pop out like 24/7? I thought it was easy because back home I was able to keep up with them, and stream them for hours every single day.

But, it is not easy. I have not been able to keep up with the Kpop World at all. It is moving too fast for me and I feel like I’m sinking and everything is crazy!

I’m curently watching the new videos from Winner which is Really Really and Fool. I also saw clips of IU’s new video Palette, featuring GDragon.

I also watched Minzy’s new video Ninano, from debut extended play, ‚ÄėMINZY WORK 01 UNO‚Äô. I feel like all blackjacks have been waiting for this day to come.

C2kMm0k¬†I am so proud of her. Ninano showed off her Charm and she also used her Purple Microphone on live stages and also at her showcase. I was/am a proud Blackjack and also I’m really just so proud of Minzy. She didn’t go safe with her solo debut, but she went STRONG, FIERCE, AND SEXY!!!!

I didn’t even know the video was up. I was like oh let me see if Musicworks uploaded something about Minzy and BAM IT WAS UP AND I FREAKED OUT AND I COULDN’T STOP PLAYING IT. Then I watched the reaction videos and oh my they were amazing!

I’m so proud of you Minzy. You keep doing your thing!!!!

Keep listening to kpop, because it feels good!

Till next time!

Ailee: Vocal Queen

Hey guys. I’m really sorry I haven’t been updating my blog. Things have just gotten real busy and crazy. But I’m back today and I want to share with you a woman who’s voice sounds like heaven on earth. And it’s also powerful and gives you goosebumps and makes you cry.

Her name is Amy Lee, but she’s better known as Ailee (stage name). She’s an American singer based in South Korea.¬†She is signed to YMC Entertainment in South Korea and Warner Music in Japan.

I stumbled on her song¬†I Will Show You¬†on Youtube while I was watching Korean Music Videos and I was blown away. Like how is someone so talented and with such a bold voice, and powerful too? Then I went ahead to watch her other music videos like¬†Don’t Touch Me,¬†Heaven,¬†U and I,¬†Insane,¬†Mind Your Own Business,¬†If You,¬†Home (Feat. Yoonmirae), and so much more. She always has a way to tell a story through her music and I really lover her for that.

She recently came back with a new album titled New Empire. It’s mind blowing and she herself said that it is really her style.

Now I want to show you her live performances. Listen to them, your ears will thank you big time. Ailee is amazing, talented and beautiful.

She also covered I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston. (Fun Fact: I Will Always Love You is actually originally by Dolly Parton)

And to finish this post off, Ailee performing If You.

Talking To The Moon

I know. you’re somewhere far away
The night when the blue star lights me up in the room
Lean on the window
Wait for the clouds to wobble in the wind
When the full moon gets a eclipse in my submerged pupil
Stay up all night with my eyes open

Talking to the moon
Maybe you’ll see the moon and talk to me
I expect like a fool
Try to call you but can not reach
My baby please, oh please, my baby

Someday when you listen to my voice in your dreams
Open your lips.
Don’t hesitate to answer. u miss me too
Wait for the clouds to wobble in the wind
Heart filled of longing
When the full moon gets a eclipse in my submerged pupil

Talking to the moon
Maybe you’ll see the moon and talk to me…

Listen to Talking To The Moon By KREAM. It’s a beautiful song.

What Is Going On YG?! [Fangirl Rant]

Hey guys, I haven’t really been posting much about myself lately. Just poems, and song lyrics from Nashville. It’s because my life really has been uninteresting, and it was really nothing to write about.

But TODAY, something happend that literally blew my heads off and still has me in a state of shock¬†right now making me wish it’s all a horrible dream that I’ll wake up from and everything will go back to normal.

I woke up this morning, and as usual, logged unto Twitter only to see #ThankYou2NE1 trending on was it number 2 wordwide. Freaked out I hurried over to Facebook to find out what’s going on and found articles from Koreaboo, Allkpop and Soompi, and other Korean Media Outlets saying¬†YG Entertainment has officially announced the disbandment of 2NE1 and Nam Taehyun leaving WINNER. That just ruined my mood completely because I became a Blackjack (2NE1 Fandom name) while they were on hiatus, which was last year after I watched their Music Video for Come Back Home all thanks to the article that was comparing Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood music video to 2NE1’s Come Back Home. So I’ve been waiting patiently along with other fans and YG stans for the return of these K-Pop Legends.

Unfortunately, their year, as Minzy’s contract with YG expired, she didn’t renew it, and I cried for days because that meant that I wouldn’t be able to see her, Bom, Dara and CL performing together on stage. And I really wanted to go to a 2NE1 concert. I guess that’s not going to happen.

YG then also announced that 2NE1 would be coming back as a trio and that we should support them.

On Tuesday (April 5), the group‚Äôs label YG Entertainment revealed that 2NE1‚Äôs youngest member Minzy (Gong Min Ji) opted to not renew her contract, which expires next month. 2NE1‚Äôs other members — CL (Lee Chaelin), Dara (Sandara Park), and Park Bom — will remain with the company and currently have new music in the works.

I thought to myself, ‘Okay at least all hope’s not lost, if you can’t see four of them perform, you can still see the three of them slay it on stage and in new music videos.’

Sadly, it also looks like that’s not happening, because they have officially disbanded. I mean I’m not surprised, because after reading about their hiatus, and CL doing her solo thing in the US, and Dara getting the acting gigs and also judging in this boy group show in the Philippines, half of me knew that the end of 2NE1 was coming, but I decided to cling unto the words that YG said and I just hopped for the best. Their last stage was at the MAMA2015, which took everyone by surprise, because the only person expected to perform was CL solo, but then she brought her girls and they slayed the whole crowd. I was watching it live on Youtube and the emotions I felt was amazing. W all thought it was a ‘Hello’ from them, not knowing it was actually a ‘Goodbye’.

I’ll really be missing seeing 2NE1 performing and them being them. Like they’re the reason I got into K-Pop in the first place, and they’re also one of the fiercest girl groups I know, them and 4MINUTE, but also SADLY, 4MINUTE’s gone…2016 really isn’t K-Pop’s year…like most of the 2nd Generation groups are saying adios amigo(bye bye).

Then we come to the news of Nam Taehyun leaving WINNER. I read the articles and I could just feel the tears begging me to let them out, but I couldn’t cry out because everyone else here would think I’ve gone crazy (which is true cause all this things with YG Ent is driving me bananas). He’s the one that caught my eyes when I saw Winner for the first time, and I was like wow, I need to know this group. I didn’t get into them real deep, but I stanned them and just loved their music.

They make amazing sad songs. If you know me, one of the things I love is heart-wreaking sad songs that make you feel so many emotions all at the same times, song that you can connect to form your own stories, songs that make you wonder wow, what was going on in the mind of the person who wrote this. That is what always went¬†through my mind whenever I listened to their music. My favorite song from them is Baby Baby. That song, perfect for a night alone, cool breeze, maybe a bowl of ice cream in a dim room. It’s a perfect song.

YG said he left due his mental illness and things like that. As much as I’m mad at YG for loosing talented artists, I’m also sympathizing with Taehyun. I really pray for him to get better. And if leaving was his idea, and what he wanted, I’m behind him 100%, even if it’s not, I’m still behind him 100%

All these are my thoughts and opinions. I wasn’t really planning on writing a blog post¬†about the whole 2NE1 disbandment and Nam Taehyun leaving WINNER, but I just needed an outlet for all these emotions I’m feeling right now. I really wish everyone the best, CL, Bom, Dara, (Minzy, who will be debuting solo under another label sometime), and also Nam Taehyun (Get well soon), and the other members of WINNER too,¬†Seungyoon, Mino, Seunghoon and Jinwoo. I’m sure it’s not easy on any of you guys, but stay strong, you’ll make it past this.

This is just my take on all this happening. YG just messed up my feelings… ūüė¶
They’ve got me like TT_TT
