Beanie level: Errand boy

I guess TappyToon is now a thing that’s going to be promoted. There are 4 more recommendations other than WWWSK.

Food for thought.

There was a big reaction from netizens when Food Diary decided to raise a chicken and use it for food to show the process of how food is prepared.

I believe such reactions from netizens occurred because we\’ve experienced eating animals but not catching and slaughtering them. So with that in mind, I believe the program is very meaningful.

I\’ve caught a chicken with my grandma before. My grandma cut off the chicken\’s neck and placed the chicken in my arms. I felt the chicken\’s life being taken away with my body. That experience was very helpful to me. You have to eat everything when you are eating chicken. We are taking away a life when eating meat.”

    It may be because of the mindset of, yes, raising it only just to kill it for food later on, but also about whether or not it was going to be slaughtered in a humane way. Did the show speak about how it was going to be slaughtered??

      No, they just mentioned that it would be slaughtered. Even if the netizens were opposed to the chicken being raised to be killed – isn’t that what’s happening everyday with our food? It’s like the nutritionist mentioned, they’ve never experienced where poultry/meat comes from, so it’s a huge shock to them. But it’s natural. That’s how we ate for years before industrial agriculture came along. Everything was gathered by us – there was excess and no wastage.

      I think that’s what the show is trying to convey – we need to know where our food comes from to appreciate it and not waste it.

        Then that’s odd, because the Korean fish markets gather their seafood and kill it on-the-spot to bought and consumed everyday. But then again, this is Korea we are talking about, the land where people overreact to the littlest of things

          I think people see seafood as different for some reason. Like there are so many ‘vegetarians’ who are actually pescatarians. Maybe land animals are seen as somehow too familiar, and one can interact with them? Also, there seems to be an extremely prevalent seafood diet in SK, Japan and other East Asian countries.

Listened to this song on a loop after binging on Are You Human Too. It speaks to me of Namshin 3’s feelings towards anyone who keeps telling him he’s just a robot, not human. I think that’s why I like Dave so much – he’s never met Namshin, and he’s known Namshin 3 since he was created. There are genuine fatherly feelings towards him and he has no ulterior motives.

Gaho, from Planetarium Records composed and wrote this song. There’s a MV, but I feel like this is a song that should be listened to with eyes closed, and no distractions as you ride along with the rise and fall of his voice on a rollercoaster of emotions.

If you would like to watch the MV, here’s the link https://youtu.be/aTOu1g5-Z2M

The recreated the ramyun CF, but all I can think about is Jonghyun slipping and falling 😢

This sounds like it’ll be great. A Miss Marple adaptation?!

This is so cute! I love that Jaeho’s continued releasing music after Histroy disbanded, even if they’re single albums. (and even if Punishment is his best release to date

I also love that Jang Yi Jung (also former History) and Yezi (labelmate) featured on the single album.

She’s coming back soon!

Also, I love how they’ve written the word new to look like the profile of a person.

I love this song mostly for its use of the haegeum – my favourite traditional Korean instrument.

The Q&A’s from Ep. 2’s digital booklet are hilarious!

    Hahaha wow. Taemin: let me pick a song we are not currently promoting.

    Onew, are you planning not to have legs in the near future?? I wonder if that’s just a translation error…

        Normally it’s Taemin, or Onew who give these deadpan answers.

    Honestly, I'm just surprised Taemin still has a phone.

I’m having so much fun with SHINee’s website for their 6th album! It’s a great way to explore SHINee’s amazingly diverse discography.

There are 3 different things one can do by clicking on the 3 dots on the bottom left.

The 1st is for the playlist of the day.
The 2nd dot is for a questionnaire that will give you a song recommendation
Finally, the 3rd dot is to unlock the track teaser for the day by answering a few questions.

Clicking on the different colours will also suggest songs that match the vibe of the colour.

In the mood for sharing k-indie.

Rocoberry is a duo consisting of Roco (the main vocalist, she sings about 90% of the songs) and Conan. He composes the songs for the most part, but I chose this songs because both sing in this one.

They’re also known for composing some well known OSTs –
Goblin’s I Will Go to You Like the First Snow (Ailee), I Miss You (Soyou) and Stay (Chanyeol x Punch)
DotS’s Everytime (Chen x Punch)
Pinocchio’s Love is Like Snow (Park Shin Hye)

This track is song is very chill, and I love to have this playing right before going to sleep.

    I was looking for something like this without even knowing I was looking for it. Thanks so much!

      You’re welcome! It’s always the best best feeling to have that happen.

      This is another great channel – they’re an indie label https://www.youtube.com/user/pastelmusic
      They have Lucia, Zitten and Epitone Project among many others, which JB and GF used to post all the time in the earlier days of DB. My personal favourite is Sentimental Scenery for some chillstep-like music.

      Also, this channel makes great playlists that are great for playing in the background https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKg8pa6n2DlJ0Y6eXdrbY7Q

      Yozoh comes out with some great songs as well. This is an OST from Hwayi: Monster Boy https://youtu.be/WXNwWuI2Lho

      I don’t know if you’ve heard of MadSoulChild, but their lead singer Jinsil has a beautifully unique voice. This is an OST for Duel https://youtu.be/TKp2W4bTB84
      and another OST for Ahjussi: The Man from Nowhere https://youtu.be/j4B67RKdvwI

      Neon Bunny releases indie electronica music
      https://youtu.be/o0STGIblwgU
      https://youtu.be/tfyc2YHj3zM

      CIFIKA is another experimental electronica artist
      https://youtu.be/TW8iO47fPf0 This is a live-ish performance.
      This is her label’s channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMl9IMK_hSwE3I_L5M-s4xA

      Hope you can continue to discover more great artists. ❤

        Aw cool, we have a lot of music in common! I love Pastel Music compilations on Spotify which I randomly found via the Coffee Prince OST, didn’t know Zitten were signed to them. Big fan of Yozoh, Neon Bunny and CIFIKA. Will have to check out Lucia, Epitone Project and MadSoulChild, thanks so much for the recommendations.

        Do you like/know OOHYO, Cherry Coke and/or Rad Museum?

          I know OOHYO and Cherry Coke, but I’ll have to check out Rad Museum.

          I’m kind of all over the place in terms of music, but I’m glad that we have a lot of music in common. 🙂

This was a long-awaited comeback (8 years!) from Uhm Junghwa.

She was the queen of pop in SK in the late 80’s and throughout 90’s.

Seventeen gave a nod to this song in a performance they did to commemorate her on Immortal Songs
