Ironic Universal Music Group is keeping KPOP away from the rest of the world.
That awkward moment you can’t pronounce your favorite band member’s name.
If there is anything I could ask from any fandom I would ask them to lower their expectations of these idols. They can’t live up to godly expectations all the time, they’re only human after all.
The sad life of an international K-pop fan…
Waiting for subtitles to shows or dramas
Getting up at ungodly hours to watch MV releases or live shows
Waiting weeks for band merch to come in the mail
Trying to sing along to the songs in Korean
When they finally come to your country it is nowhere near you
Having to watch everything through your computer/laptop
I….have been tagged

These guys always succeed in making me smile.
9: You have the resources to create a 7-member supergroup…who do you recruit and why
Firstly, why would you make me choose?
1. Jonghyun, power vocals, visual
2. Chen, power vocals
3. T.O.P, bassey-tenor tones
4. Key, unique sound, I love his voice, he can dance, he can just do everything because I admire his everything
5. Amber, because she knows how to drop those sick beats.
6. Xiumin, he’s silly and handsome and cute, I like his dancing style
7. Gongchan, he’s really cute, he makes for a nice visual, I like his voice
i would also squeeze Onew in there because I need a PERFECT LEADER
and everyone listed is like, super attractive and awesome and I would take them all out for pizza.
10: Favorite OTP moment of 2012
I like JongKey, not as like a totally pants-off-dance-off type of couple, but a bromance-idc-if-we-hold-hands-and-people-can-think-we-are-homos-because-i-love-you-bro type of relationship thing. Pickin up what I’m puttin down?
This one is cute because Key is totally surprised that Jonghyun is all up in his business
11: Wishes for 2013
Have a better year than 2012. Really, that’s kind of it. I’m not setting my expectations too high here. Because in the end, it’s most likely going to be one crazy, awkward, unfitting year.
The new tag-ee questions (kpop or otherwise) :
1. Favorite group?
2. Favorite solo artist?
3. Favorite kpop gif
4. Favorite all around gif.
5. How you found your favorite group and why they are your favorite.
6. A picture of your favorite shirt.
7. If you had one day to spend with your bias, how would you spend it?
8. Favorite album this year? If you can’t choose, do your top 3.
9. Make a group of your biases and give the group a name and what company name they are under (company may be legit or made up)
10. Kpop has finally taken over the world, we need a new president, what idol would it be/ who would you want it to be, and for what reasons would s/he make for a good president?
11. What are you most looking forward to in 2013?
I hate finding out that some idols are my age because then I feel like I’ve done nothing with my life.
- Amy: thrusting your hips is not a dance.
- Me: kpop begs to differ.
- Me: /insert Kris' bitchface
Don’t judge a fandom because some stupid hoes were stupid hoes.
Don’t judge me based on what others have done in a group I am associated with.
That is truly unfair.
Don’t judge me because you don’t even know me.
You don’t know my life
What kind of household I live in
How I wake up in the morning
The kind of cereal I eat
What clothes I prefer to wear on certain days.
And if you did
I’d consider you a stalker and we’d have a few more problems on our hands than you just being a dickbiscut.
So I’m chillin with my mom in the car - we were driving home from the barn - so I turn on my ipod and we’re listening to SHINee’s Ring Ding Dong.
I’m singing along and nodding my head and dancing in my seat as usual
when she says: “You know, I really like this song”
and I just sit there like this:
and say “oh really now?”
And she responds, “Yeah it has such a great beat!”
And she proceeds to dance in her seat too:
and then I start to regret playing it
But that isn’t even the best part…
begins to attempts to sing. It sounded something like, “BABAYYYY~ NIHAEUOJHSFOIAEHDWEONSCOEAHFOIADOI OASFHA CRAZAYYYYY”
At this point I’m just like
My feelings were a strange mixture of pure horror and blissfulness. She’s secretly becoming a Shawol. Sometimes when she walks in my room and I’m jamming out to kpop she always asks, “Is that SHINee~?”
“Uh, yeah,” I usually say.
Then she does something like this in my doorway
So I guess sometimes, she isn’t so bad.
I was tagged?!
Tagged by topsdickery (one of my fave followers btdubstep)
1) If you could choose any idol to live with for 2 years, who would you choose??
Holy. Fucking. Shit. WHO WOULDN’T I CHOOSE?! Oh shit…what do I do? What do I DO?!
I guess I’ll say Jonghyun from SHINee because he’s my bias and seems uber chillskies.
We could bake together and watch movies! That and we could totally fall in love and have babies but ya know, whatever.
2) Top 5 most listened to song on itunes??
Vanilla Twilight by Owl City, Coffee and Cigarettes by Nevershoutnever, Core Pride by UVERworld, Calm Me Down by Mother Mother and Honesty by SHINee
3) Female bias??
Amber from f(x). I love how she’s just so different and herself and all. She stands out in kpop because unlike other female idols her hair is short and she’s tomboyish compared to the normally pink, fluffy unicorn stuff some other groups got goin on.
4) Male bias??
I’m pretty sure I already answered this with question 1 butttttttttttttt I’ll list all my bias instead >:) (or some)
Dis baby again. I love his voice. He has such exceptional talent and skill he makes me awestruck every time I see a performance on youtube. He seems like a really fun guy to be around and the fact that he is sensitive and a romantic gives him 100+ bonus points. He lets me feel like it’s okay to cry and even if he’s not with me he’s my shoulder to cry on, which is really cheesey and stupid for me to say, but judge me I dare you.
Chen from EXO-M(a newer addition to the list) because he’s beautiful and has the voice of an angel. When I hear him sing Baby Don’t Cry I have to cry more because he really makes me happy.
Key of SHINee. Alright, I have words to say about why he’s on this list. Firstly, his sass. Okay, you just have to love it. Secondly, he’s been a huge inspiration in my life lately and has really taught me a few lessons I needed to learn or be retaught,. He’s not afraid to be himself and doesn’t give to fucks who judges him because he knows that his opinion is the only one that matters and I really respect him for that. In a way he’s my ultimate bias more than Jonghyun you could say. If I were to have an older brother I’d want him.
Minho of SHINee. Every time I see this gif I have to whisper “okay oppa”. It’s a thing. But yeah, he’s the flaming charisma of SHINee. I had to fall for him even more when I watched To The Beautiful You, his acting was great and he always preforms well.
Onew of SHINee. Okay, firstly, can we just appreciate this picture. I mean…CMON. ONEW WHAT THE HELL WHERE DID THAT GLORIOUS ARM COME FROM?! At first, when I was just starting to become a Shawol, I actually didn’t care much for Jinki. He was dorky and didn’t stand out as much as some of the other members did to me (visually). But that is what they want to happen…Because all of the sudden, out of god knows where, he hits you with his dorky charms and it is OH so hard to resist. Have you ever thought, that even though he is the clumsiest he can juggle? That takes a lot of dexterity. I think I’m taking it in a really weird way, but even though he falls down so many times (onew condish forever relavent) he always picks himself back up and walks onward and to me that’s wonderful. His purity is to be admired and he strikes me as the kindest member. The moment I fell for him was when I was watching a video of what the members perfect girls would be like. Jonghyun’s was something along the lines of a pale girl with red lips, Minho’s was a girl who really like being a girl and wore dresses often. I could never be those things, my physical envelope and my personality denies me. However Jinki’s answer really struck me. He said that he didn’t have a specific type of girl he liked, all girls have their own personalities and specialties about them. I’ve never heard a man speak sweeter words.
Taemin from SHINee. I wish I could be as attractive as this Korean man. His dancing is phenomenal and his voice has become so wonderful and sweet! He’s really grown and I’m so proud of him. AND HIS HANDS
Rain. He was my FIRST EVER bias - without me ever really knowing what that was at the time. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be so in love with KPOP. His voices is fantastic and his acting skills are great. In Ninja Assasin I swear I had to change my pants. I hope he is doing well in the military and stays healthy.
Okay so I lied about Jonghyun being my ultimate bias because the pastery in this picture totally wins hands down.
5) 3 places you want to go sometime in your life??
Bali Indonisia - where my birthmother is from
6) Favorite music video EVER??
SHINee’s Lucifer is by far my favorite.
7) Favorite GIF??
He’s so fluffy <3 I just would really enjoy to hug or cuddle him.
8) If you could switch places with ANY fictional character, who would it be??
Cho Chang. Harry Potter loves you, Diggory loves you,. You’re a total bamf, and you don’t die.
9) What entertainment company would you go ino if you could choose any??
SM, because all of their idols do very well/
10) Favorite group based 100% on the sound of their music??
Tie between SHINee, VIXX and B.A.P
I had a lot of fun doing this, sorry if I got carried away! Thank you for tagging!
