2nd to where to watch kdrama! I know netflix has some, but I'm really interested in slightly older dramas that I never got around to finishing (or starting coughcough) RIP Dramafever

Someone I follow on twitter threw back to Smoky Girl - MBLAQ and so I've been watching/listening to MBLAQ for almost the past week. I forgot how good their songs were and how funny they were in variety shows. Makes me sad though all the shit that happened with them. I have a wish, a dream, a far off hope that maybe they'll come back again as 3 and make some more music together, but.... idek what company they are all under rn or really anything about what's going on with them now-a-days. All I know is Seungho is still in the army (not for too long tho), Mir started Youtube, and G.O. is a streamer or something?

Anyone else wishing for an MBLAQ comeback? Anyone else jamming to their albums?

Or at least, is anyone throwing back like me to the old days - the 2nd(?) gen kpop? I've been into kpop for a decade now and that's crazy.

I was reccing some songs to a friend who listens casually last night. He preferred girl groups and I was scrolling through my music like, Do I even listen to girls??? Lol. Besides fx and Sunmi I realized most of the girl group songs I have are from 5-8 years ago! LOL

anyone read yg's statement on blackpink's comeback?

like, i didn't think i'd get to a point where i am on the verge of wholeheartedly disliking a group because their management and company founder. the mediaplay and their level of popularity despite doing the barest minimum is grating on my last nerve rn.

edit: sorry, corrected a mistake on yg being ceo. what is his current position right now?

Yeah I saw a summary of it...believe nothing until you see teasers

And yeah I know what you mean. I prob sound like such a BP hater on here at times, but truly...95% of my gripes with them have nothing to do with the members and everything to do with that creep. So when a new song or American promotions are announced I can't get too excited because...we're all just waiting for the other shoe to drop. We know that they'll never reach their full potential because of him. They deserve better than the scraps they get even now. I can't get super invested in them only watch a 2NE1 situation happen again. It's really sad and not entertaining in the slightest.

Anyone else see this thread on r/kpop and feel so fucking disgusted I don't mean the comments about members leaving, childhood mistakes, etc...read it and you'll see what I mean.

It's not just Kpop, but I'm so disillusioned with celebrity fandom, esp in the last year or two. Like, obviously everyone is problematic and I don't believe you have to "cancel" every time a celebrity does something mildly shitty. Everyone has their own personal limit on who they will spend their time and money on and that's fine as long as you have SOME sort of limit.

But I'll never understand the sort of apologia going on in that thread. Just admit your fave fucked up and move on. Stop saying what they did wasn't racist when it is. Stop saying you know they're a good person and that they didn't mean it because YOU DON'T KNOW THEM and have no fucking clue what their beliefs and personalities are really like. They could be sexist, homophobic, right-wing, whatever and you'd never know, ESPECIALLY when it comes to idols.

My favorite comment is the one about Kangin that acts like the worst thing he did is 2 DUIs (which is bad enough) and conveniently leaves out him beating a woman in a room salon (I refuse to believe that user doesn't know about it if they claim to be an ELF). The dude has put his selfish desires over others' safety time and time again. I don't even care if you still like SuJu, just stop lying to yourself that Kangin's not a total piece of shit. A celeb shouldn't have to be convicted of a felony for you to be able to judge their character based on their REPEATED terrible actions JFC

Same goes for Seungri. I can't believe how recent the scandal is and people in there are worried about whether he's still selling concert tickets! If you can't see the guy is a sleazy misogynist (going back to shit way before Burning Sun) I have no respect for you. I shouldn't be surprised though--it's still Reddit ofc 🙄 Again, I don't give a shit if ppl still listen to BB's albums but to be worried about the future of his career when the dude has enough money to retire on..there's really no one else's music you can get into instead?? It's really gotta be that guy???

I'm just so over the free damage control fans do for celebs, especially rich ones. Fucking love yourself for christ's sake. These people don't know who you are and don't give a fuck about you as an individual. They aren't writing your checks. They don't even know you exist! Feel free to dump them at any time for any reason. You don't have to tie every artist you like into your identity as a human being. And most importantly, no one is OWED fame or wealth, PERIOD. It's that damn simple. I don't care how talented or nice you think they are. Just...the way society has been brainwashed to worship the rich and cape for them as if they're above us seriously depresses me.

Lol I didn't plan to write this much but once I got going I had to get it all out. I prob sound like those ppl on Nate who say "see never worry about celebrities" whenever someone buys a building lmao

You don't have to tie every artist you like into your identity as a human being.

This is so prevalent nowadays (even back then I guess but less visible) it’s so worrying like I understand when you like something it’s easy to get invested but at times you wonder is there anything to this person besides them being a fan of certain artist? I also understand for a lot of people they found solace in fandom during tough times so it’s hard to let it go but the things people do to cape for their faves sometimes 🤷‍♀️

And speaking of caping for their fave, the new practice of ‘search cleansing’ or speaking only in DM on twitter is so wild to me like. i’d understand if it was a truly false rumour but half the time it’s fandom covering something up (most of the time it’s not even really problematic but fandoms can’t have stains on their idol i guess). Is there honestly any joy in putting that much work in fandom for someone who don’t know or care lol?

The deserve to be rich thing is also top-tier clowning lol, I don’t deny most people who get there work their asses off but lbr that kind of income is not accessible for about 99% of the population even if they did the same. Sure they took risky career choices to get there but let’s not pretend companies are not just straight up exploiting fans for coins at times.

I need people to take a step back and realise your fave don’t have to be perfect, you can still like them despite certain errors they’ve made but disregarding it all ain’t it lol.

hi omona! happy friday!

it's half past 1, i'm at work and i don't have anything left to do for now. lol


anyway, i finished reading d gray man! (from what's written obviously) and I loved it. i gotta say i'm glad i waited with reading it because recent manga events were definitely the most interesting, but at the same time it's a bit of a shame it took me so long. the artwork is beautiful and i love the characters so much. i didn't expect to like it so much (i might have said that before)

reading about hoshino's health issues though i'm surprised she's still drawing it. that takes some damn determination, she's amazing.

have a safe and warm weekend! :)
juhli 8th-Feb-2019 05:02 pm (UTC)
ooh hey, didn't expect someone talking about d.gray man here :D i love the manga too and recently started re-reading it, since i stopped when it was on that long hiatus. IA, the art is so beautiful, and I love Allen sm. Although I must say that things have gotten really complicated for me lol

DO you read Akatsuki no Yona too?
theweebdream 8th-Feb-2019 12:51 pm (UTC)
Good morning Omona!!

Does anyone watch soobeanie_’s videos on YouTube? She was a former idol that talks about idol life. One video she talked about nice and rude idols and only gave away one letter as an “acronym”, and for a rude idol group she said G. Someone in the comment section was able to guess it was Girl’s Day based on when her group was active and performed on music shows and...I’m disappointed but not surprised. They do seem like they could be really snotty :/ it makes me skip their music now when it comes on lol. At least as a group they’ve fallen into obscurity?

OP, I didn’t even realize next week was Valentine’s Day. It will just be another day of work for me haha.
jyusou 8th-Feb-2019 12:57 pm (UTC)
Also, Thai politics just got Super Interesting today. Popcorn out and ready.
jyusou 8th-Feb-2019 05:13 pm (UTC)
Aaaaand it’s cancelled. Popcorn shelved 😔.
pikapika217 8th-Feb-2019 01:12 pm (UTC)
so it got a bit buried under the official debut news BUT the TXT boys have a cute dog: https://omonatheydidnt.livejournal.com/23632245.html
wafflesnmilk 8th-Feb-2019 01:32 pm (UTC)
Speaking of Valentine, the ONTD post the other day just made me realised it’s been 10 years since 500 days of summer (WHAT?) I feel old and depressed now and they’re not even making good rom-com for me to stay in and wallow to anymore.

Re-watching old rom-coms also makes me want to move to NYC but I’m sure it’s nowhere as ideallic as it seems and also there ain’t no job out there sponsoring an entry level person to the US welp.
daynr 8th-Feb-2019 05:26 pm (UTC)
NYC is amazing, but when I lived there I worked. worked. And my heet hurt a lot from wearing the shoes.
skybluecotton 8th-Feb-2019 02:39 pm (UTC)
I just recently got into bts.
someone pray for me...
juhli 8th-Feb-2019 05:04 pm (UTC)
oh dear, good luck!! (But at least you're gonna have a good time watching all the things and music)
pepsi_twist9 8th-Feb-2019 02:44 pm (UTC)
I caved and bought the SM handwarmers because I checked Bestbuy and electric handwarmers are about the same price. They seem to sell from $15-$60 but with that big of a selling gap I don't trust the cheap ones.

It's super cute and functions well, it's not super hot but I don't want it to be for several reasons:
a) I don't want to burn myself
b) I don't want to fear the battery exploding

--

I also bought my first lightstick. I'm not really a kgoodie person although I like looking at stuff because man kpop design teams do a good job. I had to have the SHINee light stick though, it's so cute
existingisfunny 8th-Feb-2019 03:35 pm (UTC)
I got my NCT lightstick this week in preparation for the world tour they continue to tease. My only other one is for Astro. I want Shinee's and SNSD's but I'll wait until their future activities.

Women's kdrama fashion stinks, worse than V-Day carnations.
It's like "unflattering" is always the theme.

Yesterday was poop, and a potential project went *splat* and I'm sick. So I went home to bury myself in a vat of Belgium chocolate pudding, tears, and Netflix. I started Romance is a bonus book and bless our leading lady and her gumption. [Spoiler (click to open)] I'm glad LJS is younger and (hopefully) a piner. He sounded too drama "perfect" in previews. LJS's character, though, hmmm. And some of the tone shifts....
My cynical self was kind of creeped out by the shoe guy, but she handled him like a boss. I love her so far.


I'm giving myself today (maybe tomorrow) to sulk, get my hair done, and then I'm embracing the year of the pig and finding another potential project.

And some spice girls.

So Lunar New Year was a good respite from the busy work, and it was a great time eating and just resting! But halfway through work had to creep up, and now it’s kinda giving me a phobia of holidays, since I had some issues with work during the Christmas New Year period too, big sigh.

Also, it’s sad that I can’t make it to Yuri’s fan meetings around the region because of work related commitments. If it were in2017/2018, heck yeah I would have gone without hesitation and taken leave. But sadly my current job can’t provide me the luxury
daynr 8th-Feb-2019 07:58 pm (UTC)
missing Yuri is sad, jobs are so demanding.
synatri 8th-Feb-2019 04:37 pm (UTC)
hey omona! does anyone know where to dl asian dramas in general? (not just kdramas) I'm going to be on a long-haul flight in a couple of weeks and i'm going to need entertainment aside from in-flight movies...
juhli 8th-Feb-2019 05:37 pm (UTC)
if you have netflix, they have some good asian dramas that you can download.
For other sites, I'll send you a pm!
cosmicdaze 8th-Feb-2019 04:38 pm (UTC)
I’m going to the Red Velvet concert on Sunday!! I’m so excited!

I applied for summer graduation this past week so hopefully I can actually save up the $3k I need to pay for my summer classes lmao
