Today I had some bloodwork done in the morning and had pink chai tea.
Played Coup online with work folks, then went to Oomomo, Artbox and Muji with my wife, and had a nice black sesame cold cream coffee.
We got 2 albums at Artbox: Mamamoo+ Two Rabbits, and Red Velvet Ice Cream Cake
9 to 10 pm Paris time.
See you !
It's Chuseok. Please enjoy the following thread of #kpop boys in hanbok. I'll be adding more pics/videos as groups post them.
At age 16 looking like a child, and rather nervous, IU prepares her first stage television performance. Who knew that in 15 years she will have her own concert in front of 88,000 people. Her iconic status represents the future of K-Pop.

but i love the fact that they included all 7 names on their stage setup at showchampion. 💕

Alright, my last classic year of #KPop is done for 2023. Check it out and enjoy the best from 2008!
G-Nitro’s Top 50 K-Pop Songs of 2008
G-Nitro presents the Top 50 K-Pop songs of 2008! I revisited another classic year in K-Pop! Just who made the list? Come find out!
The beat is great. Love the rap breakdowns as well as their vocals. Solid track. Have to check the rest of the album later.
The Korean word 빙글 (often Romanized in song titles as bingle) means round. Putting the word twice 빙글빙글 (bingle bingle) translates to round and round.

My kid is becoming a huge fan of #StrayKids. You have to admit that their MVs are cool and full of special effects. Their sound is very masculine. And their choreographies are always daring.
A bit late in getting out this week's #KPop post today, but here it is!
K-Pop MVs You Should Be Watching – 09/23/23
I enjoy #kpop a lot so it's nice that there is a ton to listen to but some groups release like... 3+ albums *every year*. I know they have huge teams doing a lot of the writing and arranging (or all of it) but that is still a huge repertoire to have to learn learn. Seems... unsustainable...
i heard jk performed at something called "global citizen festival" today, but all i can find so far is the 6 hour livestream. so i'm scanning through it looking for my boy and it's pretty funny.
i found a part where jk was interviewed though. that was funny too. i love bts's canned english responses. the interviewer's question: "what makes you a global citizen?" jk response: "this is my 2nd time joining global citizen and i'm happy to be part of it through music." interviewer: "UH-MAZING." she's just happy that he said anything. i love this. anyway, the 3-question interview is here: https://youtu.be/Z5RR7UC1jHs?t=9677
but beware, after the jk interview, it cuts to a selfie video of emanuel macron?????? talking about something? this is at least equally as cringe as charity televised music stuff from the 90s (which were EXTREMELY cringe. it's amazing any of us survived the horror.).
anyway, it's these kinds of moments of absurdity that make being a bts fan truly worthwhile. now to keep scanning for that performance!!
Kicking off my first post of the hashtag with 5 songs, with the first being the new Rolling Quartz release.
Rolling Quartz "Fearless"
Limbo "when we met"
Aaliyah "One In A Million"
ANRI "Stay By Me"
Neon Vectors "Facetime Tonight"
So .. I could deny my current obsession and post many beloved women from my playlists. But I can't help it .. it has to be Soyoon! Yay!
Fronting Se So Neon on KBS last month ... look. at. her. She's just too cool!

I realize that I haven't shared much in the past few years about my previous work at the UVM Comp. Story Lab, where we studied phenomena like incels, k-pop, and linguistic turbulence on platforms like #Reddit and #Twitter. Explains why I know so much obscure internet lore 😅 Enjoy:
je refais mon #introduction / #introductionfr pour vous raconter que je suis un grand amoureux du café, un gremlin qui lit beaucoup et passe ses journées à écouter de la musique. un jour j'ai mis le doigt dans l'engrenage de la #kpop et tout le corps y est passé. j'essaie d'être doux avec la vie, et je parle facilement de santé mentale.
(G)i-dle goodies for their concert in Paris were not that great 🥲🦠 #kpop (Concert was 🔥🔥 though)
I just realized it was 20 years ago (this year, not this day lol), that I went to a huge K-Pop concert in Washington D.C in 2003.
Some of the acts I saw: Eugene, BoA, Rain, Jo Sung Mo, Kim Gun Mo, Baby V.O.X, Shinhwa, CAN, Patti Kim.
I should look for these pics soon. They aren't the best quality due to digital cameras back then, but I know I still have them somewhere.
it's my late-nite emotional-support "save me" performance.
those first few notes come in and i'm already near tears. :flan_piteous:
seems like the video doesn't embed properly, so if you want to watch it, just click the link:
ps - i'm a useless westerner, but i'm thoroughly convinced (based on my own opinion) that this song is filled with korean han (the emotional tone). #CulturalAnthropology
i know that with all the things going on in the world, kpop is so insignificant, but i'm actually happy to see that hwasa has put out a body-positivity song.
hwasa is an idol who has been derided for her looks and body. they said she was "too fat" and her face "too big". that she doesn't fit the strict kpop beauty standards.
this stunning example of feminine beauty was "too fat" and ugly. so yea, they'll call any woman fat and ugly.
but now, if anyone ever searches "hwasa body", they're gonna get this song.
Hooray for Fridays, new release day, and #JukeBoxFridayNight!
The theme for this week is #GettingClean. 🛀
So I'm interpreting 'getting clean' as a reset, a new beginning, a clean start.
From our beloved vocal line - 'Zero O'Clock'. This is the Tiny Tan Dream On animated version and it's adorable and so wholesome. "Turn this all around, When everything is new, zero o' clock." 💜
ROCKET PUNCH THREAD :
I have a soft spot for these underdogs. Their management always seems to chase something that's just not happening, whether it is a trend (almost all their releases, but we'll come back to that, have been trying to adapt to the latest Kpop trend, sadly without adding anything to it) or the hope that the Japanese market will give them the success they don't really find in South Korea. Their last attempt ? Taking part in Queendom Puzzle...
Hi, posting a short #introduction ... after moving instances.

Hope to find like-minded people🥰
Tonight’s theme: SUMMERTIME
Kpop girl group fromis_9 released "We Go" in May 2021, when the pandemic was raging and so many of us wanted to travel and couldn't.
The music video is all about wanting to do with someone special summer travel - even if we can only do it virtually or in our imagination - and includes this line, for which I calim my bonus points:
Oh oh oh like a midsummer night’s summer vacation
Oh oh oh 한여름 밤의 피서같이
A question to kpop fans here (my apologies if I have mistaken included you in this group):
What do you think of NCT U "Baggy Jeans"?
Miss V @blackmagie
bonus: KINGDOM: Legendary War special unit Mayfly version: https://youtu.be/9dVvdVpPIok?si=GTXUcKOlrzuPMBzE
cw: heavy strobing
The Mayfly cover is my favorite for both paying homage to the original choreography & remixing to the team's strengths. Plus Felix's Leap of Faith. XD
i don't know why i get so grumpy when one of the kpop girl groups puts out a song i really like. i think it's because i get so mad about the narrow beauty standards in kpop & the "sexy baby" aesthetic (reflected in both the visuals and the singing style, which is very "little girly").
i also think about how these beautiful girls gotta starve and dance and be pretty at the same time. AND how girls keep flocking to be idols! i guess if you fit the profile & think you can do it, it's very lucrative if you succeed... IF.
anyway, new jeans is one of the next model of girl group (guaranteed to be younger, taller, thinner, cuter, and sexier than last year's model!). even the name of the group is upsetting...it's like "try on these new jeans!" it explicitly connects the product/consumerism side with the THESE ARE HUMAN BEINGS PERFORMING side. sigh.
anyway, bighit/hybe can afford the very best writers and producers, and i know their A&R people will happily work with writers & producers from around the world. so it's no surprise that the song is really good. i just get so sad for the girls... living their dream, but how good is the dream? :flan_piteous:
(i do like the unflattering gray worksuits that they wear in part of the video! kpop gals rarely get to wear loose-fitting and shapeless stuff like that)
You know that EVERGLOW comes first ;)
Gonna start doing here what I've been doing in the other place, which is having a meta-thread of threads for my Kpop thoughts. I "follow" mostly girl groups and some female solo artists ; I like to have a thread for each of them so that over time (months, hopefully years) I get to have all my stuff about the same people in the same place.
And this thread is gonna list all these threads :P You follow ?

What’s your dream @hf_dreamcatcher concert setlist? 👀
July has passed and we got a ton of new #kpop this month! Check out my quick takes on some of the releases.
Hi Fediverse, here's a new #introduction :ablobcatheart:
I'm V. I hail from the DC area where I take care of many plants 🌱 and drink lots of bubble tea 🧋
Interest-wise, I'm into #anime, #manga, #lightnovels, #webtoons, #danmei, #books (mostly genre), #podcasts (mostly true crime & forteana-themed), and all things spooky really. I'm a casual #kpop fan except for when it comes to #gidle, then I'm an all-in Nevie :ablobcatattention:
A thing I like to say is that fandom is my fandom: I enjoy hanging around other fandom-minded people, even if we don't actually have any in common.
Other than that, I'm an occasional freelance #writer. The link in my bio has some of my work, if you're interested. :ablobcatcoffee:
Hello! I'm Jonathan.
Although I've lived in the USA for many years, I'm a Brit who doesn't want to take US citizenship. I liked living in France but have to stay in America. I miss the NHS!
Soft left politics, still enraged about Brexit, worried that Starmer is being overcautious.
Books I've enjoyed recently:
- Junichiro Tanizaki "The Makioka Sisters"
- David Andress "The Terror"
- Raymond Chandler "The Big Sleep"
Atheist with an interest in religion.
I drink huge quantities of builder's tea, but treat myself to Darjeeling from time to time.
I also enjoy Campari, IPAs, and White Horse whisky.
Favourite food: quiche lorraine, Central Texas barbecue, smoked salmon. I miss roast lamb, Aero, and Bovril on toast.
Updated #introduction to keep my timeline spicy. Enjoy the ugly hashtags.
Music - #darkwave #postpunk #altrock and yes even #kpop and #ppop
Books - #scifi #fantasy #horror - Give me haunting prose, body horror and grimdark. I also write dumb stories I shouldn't be writing.
Games - indies, roguelikes, strategy, life sims, and #DiscoElysium
Comics - #Uber #JunjiIto #Cybersix (tbh rly the show)
Podcasts - #RiteGud #TechWontSaveUs #TrashFuture
so far, this is my favorite of the "seven" versions. i think because of the heavy keyboard! i call it the "junior boys" treatment :flan_hug:
our boy has a bit of an uncertain start, but it seems like he finds his place and then it goes well. i love it!
✨ #introduction ✨
hello! here's hania, a #wordofhonor / #shanheling (also #tianyake & #qiye) fandom dweller and a number one han ying meowmeowifier!
i'm obsessed with and write fics for: #wenzhou, #xiyuan, #hanzhou (& #hanwenzhou) and some good old depraved #jinzhou 🌺
you can find me on:
✨ ao3 as spacehades
✨ twitter as wenzhoulvr

At what point in your life do you feel music meant the most to you?
I get that many people are going to say "always" but I'm not going to include that option so that you have to pick the time when you think you felt it most intensely, even if it was only by a hair 😛
It's Thursday! This means it is #ThursdayFiveList time!
The theme is #TheCover so we're sharing our favorite covers of songs.
