Dream Concert is coming up, and it sucks that I’m half-way around the world so I couldn’t be there. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have inside access and get the lowdown on all of the fun!
Countdown to the Dream Concert on October 10 begins!!! I’m planning to make a special correspondent post where people who will be attending can tell us their fan accounts and share their vids/photos of the event! It’s gonna be spazztastic! We can do it in an interview format or like a guest writer kind of thing.
If you’re going, or you know someone who’s going, and if you’re interested in sharing your story, e-mail me at email@example.com, or add/send me a direct tweet via Twitter.com/icecapades!
Share the KPOP love!
If I can go there…. Y’all know who I want to see:
Just a day ago in the Philippines: 73 dead, more than 300,000 displaced by typhoon Ondoy. The numbers keep increasing, and there are still a lot of unconfirmed casualties. The killer typhoon dumped more rains than hurricane Katrina. *UPDATED with status of FT ISLAND in the Philippines news & VJ ISAK coming to the Phil-Korea festival*
…in the magazines, that is. It hasn’t been long since their Men’s Health photoshoot has been released, and now they’re already gracing the covers once more, this time going for a more classy and old world look. With their upcoming comeback, they’re getting their name (and bodies) out there. THEY ARE SIMPLY EVERYWHERE. But we’re not complaining.
World star Rain has been grooming these five boys under his own company, J Tunes Entertainment for over two years. Being the first group to debut under his guidance and training methods—THE PRESSURE IS ON. You’ve seen some of their photos, read snippets about them, and you’re still clueless. I rounded up more info and TONS of pics so that we can get to know them better. And yes, I was serious when I said I am sick of all the new girl groups.
Jaebeom’s departure, Kim Hyun Joong’s H1N1 scare, Daesung’s accident, Kang-In’s assault case, DBSK’s court dilemma—everyone’s going Nostradamus about how 2009 seems like a bad year for male idols. What the hell is going on?! But let’s try to put these issues on hold, even for just a day. It’s been hard enough already, so I thought about reminiscing the good old days when Kpop was not as complicated as it is today.
Hello gorgeous people of the world!
I’m sure you noticed that I haven’t been posting much lately. I’m just dealing with a lot of stuff right now, issues that were there for a long time, it’s just that I didn’t really take time to look and think about them. And now I guess you can say I’m at a crossroads, feeling a bit lost, but nevertheless I will work hard to fix it. Bad timing is bad timing! Just when lots of depressing stuff is going on in the K fandom… Somehow it has lost its glow, I don’t know. Sigh. But from the latest updates I’ve seen, there are still lots to look forward to, like a new boy band coming your way and lots of girl groups (lol, trust me, there’ll be more). Anyways, I will be taking a really short break. For my loyal readers (which aren’t that many really, lol, but I’d rather have you guys as my friends more than anyone else), thanks so much for all your comments—you really keep me going with your smart take on things and for always being up for a good conversation. For Come to Playyy! K blogger series, I still have a lot of interviews lined up, so for the bloggers who have already sent me your interviews, rest assured that I’ll put them up soon. I won’t let all your efforts go to waste, I’m actually glad you even gave time and attention to a little pauper blogger like me to answer the questions… Thanks so much!
Okay, enough drama. I’d like to give you guys my song playlist that’s been on repeat for a while now and some good tunes that I highly recommend under the cut!
In light of the events that led to Park Jaebeom’s departure from 2PM, and ultimately from Korea—for fans, every cuss word in the dictionary that has to be said about the netizens has been said. We have always thought that the netizens are low-life entities that have way too much time in their hands. Digging up a comment dated 2005, not even on Jay’s own account but on a series web connections via his friends is no easy feat. Maybe this isn’t just an issue about their nature, but a reflection of the relationship between the Korean Entertainment industry and the Internet system as a whole.
