Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! I am off to Hooters for dinner and I can’t wait to drown myself in hot wings and ranch dressing! Every week I go check out the past charts for this day and post the top three songs. Then, I share two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This Friday, let’s see who was on top for the 4th week in September, 2009. The top three have already been posted before, so we’ll see some live performances.


#3 Kim Tae Woo “Love Rain”
After all these years, this remains one of my most ultimate favorite KPop songs. It makes me so happy. Kim Tae Woo just has a really lovely voice. Back in the day I only knew g.o.d as “that group with the tall guy that sings really well” from the baby show lol. I think this has to be his biggest solo hit. (PS OMG I just Googled and that babysitting show was in 2000, that baby is in high school now!)

[Graphic Video] Dog Cafe in Seoul Continuing Business after Violent Dog Attack



Please, Please, PLEASE Do Not Watch This Video if you are extremely triggered by Animal Abuse.
Footage begins at the 0:29 mark. Ends at the 0:45 mark.

Mods, I know what you're thinking: Why on earth do I want this post up? Well, it's because it's really important for animal lovers (like myself), and those with pets to be cautious and responsible for the actions of their pets. I really can't stress it enough how crucial it is to know that this needs to stop, and it saddens me that this is happening everyday. It's up to us people (those with or without pets) to be open, aware, and engage in topics regarding pet abuse. This story is making me teary-eyed ...
