My boss just came up to me and was like \”So I heard about this kpop group on the news…\” (I\’m thinking \”great, another person who assumes I\’m an army cause I\’m into kpop\”) \”…called Shinee.\” (skrbeodhsjsbd just keep cool. Just. Keep. Cool) \”Omw, yestheyaresogoodandtheyjustcameoutwithanothersongwithanotheronthewaybutyeahalotofpeoplearelookingatthemtoseewhatsgoingtohappennext etc.\” I think my fangirling may have shocked him, but I just told him I\’m only like this with Shinee (mostly true).

I’m 5 minutes into Shinee’s Weekly Idol and I’m already smiling like an idiot.

    Your lucky @wishfultoki that this wasn’t my first exposure to Shinee. Otherwise, Key would have totally been my bias. I love his “I’m from the east side, Honey” when he’s trying to convince the hosts he’s from NY; then once he gets the soda maker, he’s just like “bye. Nice meeting you. I’m done;” and then I can’t believe he just ran off the set to avoid aegyo. You can see him trying to form an escape plan while everyone is celebrating but I can’t believe he just dashed out of there. lol

      I love Key! He’s so funny. I love his belly laugh.

        Yes you can really tell when he’s faking his laugh. There was one point that the hosts said something and you could tell that his laugh was just to amuse them but then his members would say something and he would just be rofl literally.

      His “I’m from New York. I’m from the east side, honey” KILLED ME.

      Key is especially sassy when speaking in English

      2

        Omw yes. I don’t where exactly it’s from. I’ve only seen it in compilation videos, but I think they’re on a radio show and he tells someone (Jonghyun I think) to “Watch out babe” in English. It’s such a small thing, but absolutely hilarious.

        Oh I should have totally taken this moment to tell this story. So I saw Shinee live at a fan meet in the US around Taemin’s birthday. We sang Happy Birthday to him at the end, and he goes into this long speech in Korean, then looks at Key to translate. All Key says is “Thank you”. Taemin knows that he didn’t translate the whole thing of course and hits him. I had to find a YouTube video later to get the full translation in the comments lol

          Lol oh that’s great. I wish I had been able to see them live with Jonghyun. But we don’t ever get Kpop concerts where I live 😭

          LMAO. That does not surprise me at all. Key was just as sassy at the Chicago fan meet! I can never pick a SHINee bias but that day Key came dangerously close.

          1

            I’m sure he not-so-secretly enjoys being able to call out his members without them fully understanding what he’s saying. I’m sure they understand/speak more than they let on, but Key definitely is the most comfortable and unafraid to use that to his advantage lol He also ratted the other four out for downloading Pokemon Go before they even got through customs lol

      I also enjoyed that let kept trying to leave the whole time and then took a break for it when he lost Rock Paper Scissors. He really should be on variety more.

    This weekly idol was hilarious!! Taemin was killing me in the beginning picking on all his Hyungs. Key: “Can you just blur his face out while I’m talking?”
    😂😂😂😂

      Yees. And I love that him and Onew look like they’re in on some conspiracy only to be discussing Minho’s facial hair. Lol
      And basically all that occupies his mind is how to annoy Key.

      And then they really blurred his face and I was dead. 😂

Glad @wishfultoki has Key and @raonah has Minho because my UB is Taemin. (Also glad @adieunoire has everyone so no one is left out). This video made me a Taemint through and through.

You have no idea how much I love this and how much I need to see more. (I swear I’ll get back to kdramas. It’s just much easier to keep up with kpop when I don’t have WiFi at home).

I just finished writing a 4-page, informal essay (for fun) on how Thumbelina represents the exploitation of women in Hollywood. Where do people blog nowadays? I’ll really like to post it with pictures

Dang. What a dance/song. They all look good, but Flamers better take their heart medicine before watching. (I like this vid to see the dance but the broadcast vid has close ups/better sound quality)

    Omg, you’re so right. Minho and that jacket with no shirt underneath! 😱

    I have to say: Key was killing that dance!

      I now need to see Key playing a dark role. Man, his eyes could kill. Something like I Can Hear Your Voice or I Remember You.

        You’re so right! I haven’t seen much of Key’s acting (only a few episodes of Lookout—still need to watch Drinking Solo) but I’d love him to do something like that and surprise us all!

          I have to admit I haven’t seen much of it either lol The parts I’ve seen have looked good although nothing meaty. He’s done more theater work though so I would think that gives him a leg up too.

Can’t forget this classic shopping cart scene. I definitely wouldn’t mind being pushed around the store by these three guys. I wouldn’t care what people thought.

        True. Jeremy is pretty normal. Probably to offset how crazy (and loveable) his character was. lol

@mindy One of my biases likes shopping carts too. Zelo (red jacket) is like 6’2″ and still squeezed himself into the tiniest space (I’m sure with encouragement from his hyungs).

    This was BYG’s era. He looked so perfect in every shot.

    And the stylists did Zelo wrong with the colourful bird poop hair thing.

      Haha I didn’t mind Zelo’s hair but now that’s all I’m going to picture whenever I watch this.

      My favorite BYG look is Wake Me Up. His curly hair did me in. 😍

        That was definitely a look!

        I like the Feel So Good era simply because he looked so happy and carefree and beautiful.

Just one more from me for #DBMusicLounge. Shinee is my ultimate bias. I admire them even more for letting themselves be happy after Jonghyun’s passing. It is still hard to accept but seeing them still do what they love is an inspiration for me. I can’t wait to support them in their comeback.

I don’t follow Mamamoo all that much anymore, but I absolutely love this pre-debut song. It’s just the right amount of heat without being overly sexy. #DBMusicLounge

I just have to add this earworm to #DBMUSICLOUNGE. It’s one of the first kpop songs I ever heard. Thank you, You’re Beautiful for introducing me to CN Blue, FT Island, and the world of kpop.

This is soooo awesome. K. Will finally shows up in his own music video, the story is adorable, and then that ending! That was just perfect.

The post by @hades had me thinking of my favorite kiss scenes. One of my favorite lead ups to a kiss is still “My Girl”. I remember the lead up more than the actual kiss. He kisses her forehead and you can tell she’s all like that’s it? He asks her if she’s disappointed. She accidentally says yes and before she can backtrack, he gives her a real kiss. I couldn’t find the actually scene, but I found the bts and wow, especially for a 2005 kdrama.

    Hey. I made the video for you. You can check it out here. I posted it on my wall so you would know how it would look on yours. Let me know if that works for you or if you want the aspect ratio changed to the original. The quality isn’t the best because the source material wasn’t HD, but, it’s better than the ones on YouTube. 🙂

      Aw thank you!
      They cut off the kiss really early, but I still love the build up. I also forgot he told her he loved her in that scene too.

        If you want, I can send you the video file via email/dropbox etc and you can upload it on another site. I use dailymotion because vids tend to stay up there longer. The only downside is the autoplay to next video which cuts off the video at the end. I will most likely start using Vimeo to host my videos but that costs money if I want to do a lot of them.

Ok, y’all need to stop making the current batch of shows sound interesting because I just cut off my internet and I do not have the time to live at Starbucks.

I’m not one to make a deal about this usually but I found these headlines insulting. These women have careers of their own, so why are they being defined by their boyfriends and ex-boyfriends?

16

    These ladies have their fantastic career on their own, they don’t need this kind of headline. I found this is as insulting. Even for those who aren’t as famous as these two, don’t deserved to being keep linked with their boyfriends, husbands or ex co-stars. I. mean in real life, I would also prefer to be known as myself alone, and not as someone’s woman.

      If it was a non-celebrity who was just doing like a one-off article of their family (like “Choi Ji-woo’s husband opens up about how they met”) I could understand, but otherwise, I agree with you. No one should be forced to be mainly/solely defined by their partner.
