Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

I finally finished Mr. Sunshine (had been putting it off cause figured the ending was gonna be painful) and my favorite character DongMae reminded me of this Big Bang song, especially his final speech

I’m having a great day for an EXO-L. I got my copy of Allegro version of DMUMT at Target before work, then I went to a korean restauarant for lunch & they played the MV, the MV and song are amazing!

    I still have to wait for my album to arrive.. BUT i purchased the album in itunes.. LOL 😂

    Aaahh… I really want to watch the vlive, but my internet is so damn frustrating!!

    Anw, what is(are) your fave songs in the album?

      So now that I’ve had the weekend to listen to it, Tempo is my absolute favorite! It is an amazing title track and I loved it at first listen. I really like the MV as well which is great cause I didn’t like the last few EXO MVs except for “Electric Kiss”.

      My other favorites so far are “Ooh La La La”, “24/7”, and “Bad Dream”
      What do you think of the album so far? 🙂

        I think the album overall is great… My only complain is the lack of upbeat songs, that’s all.
        My fave songs by ranks:
        1. Oasis – the best song by EXO ever!
        2. Tempo – both version
        3. Smile on my face

        Honorable mention: 24/7 and Bad Dream… LOL 😆

          Ah yeah I was actually initially disappointed with the songs except for the title track which was love at first listen and I too enjoy the chinese version, Tempo is such a good song seriously…but the more I listen to the album the more I am appreciating it.

          Oasis is pretty darn good, I just haven’t listened to it too much and Smile on My Face is quite nice too, and hehe you have good taste in songs 😉

I\’m officially subscribed to Kocowa now that DF (I can\’t spell it out cause it\’s too sad) cruelly abandoned us kdrama fans. Nothing currently airing really has my attention though…

People on Reddit are sharing this link about someone who reached out to the Dramafever higher ups and maybe AT&T is to blame? https://dramacurrent.com/2018/10/16/what-happened-to-dramafever/

I’m so happy Chen is singing an OST for 100 Days Prince but I’m very upset that Dramafever is withholding new episodes from us this week. Honestly what the heck is going on with them?

I think “Lullaby” might be the first Got7 song I’ve ever paid attention to. Mad respect to them for releasing a full spanish and english version too. Kpop is going global y’all and the English and Spanish versions are both so well done! Considering it is Hispanic heritage month, I’m so excited to see kpop acknowledging their Latino fan base too. I saw Super Junior is aiming for more latin pop with their new mini album too. I have a lot of Latino friends who love kpop, many of them from my country El Salvador <3

To my US kpop peeps, the store FYE that is found at a lot of malls throughout the US seems to have started carrying kpop albums and well I live super close to one and they have EXO albums so my friend notified me she saw an EXO album for sale so of course I drove there as soon as I could and bought all the EXO albums in sight because apparently I have no self-control so here they are…I now own physical copies of all of the 2017 albums from EXO: The War version A, Universe winter album, and Power of Music repackage. I pulled two Chanyeol and one Baekhyun photocards and was surprised to find a postcard included in my copy of Universe <3 I am a happy EXO-L and with DO’s new drama starting tomorrow, it is bound to be a good week. For my chingu @estee to see my new albums and photocards 

    Wah, it’s SO pretty! And seeing Chanyeol’s comic book card, it was a spoiler for the repackage! Lol. That’s SM. Chanyeol looks actually good in that photocard with the cute filter! And that Universe postcard is gorgeous. Baekhyun looks so cute and nerdy with those glasses! Happy for you, chingu!

      Haha yes it was totally spoiler for the repackage, on the back it has more comic book art and it has Suho on the back of mine! I’m so happy with all the EXO photocards that I’ve pulled! I’m glad that I didn’t have to order The War random version because Version A is the one I really wanted, I love everything about this packaging compared to other 2 versions. I love the photobook the best out of the 3, the CD is my aesthetic, and I love this cover so in a way it was cool to find it in store and have full control of what version I was paying for. They only seem to carry version A in this store anyway which worked out for me!

Got published on dramabeans for a 3rd time and the theme is travel! Funny how my passions in life: music, food, and now travel are the subjects I’ve gotten DB published on! Also I’ve never seen Woohoo Waikiki but I really like the pictures the editors chose for my article.

I’ve talked about how wonderful my coworker best friend is who I talk to everyday about kdramas and now kpop right? She is an ELF and I’m an EXO-L and she got me this mug for my birthday as well as some Tony Moly skincare AND took me out to eat Korean fried chicken! Also I got the unbelievably handsome Sehun’s Pepero ad card with my mug.

@estee now I really need to get a physical copy of Exodus right? 😉

Ordered some korean dust masks on Amazon and got them delivered this week and they came with EXO stickers! Also wanted to share one more pic of the EXO-CBX album that actually features ChenBaekXi cause I ran out of space for pics in my last post where I was sharing pics for @estee to see

I bought my first kpop album and it arrived this week, it is EXO-CBX Blooming Days which is a masterpiece of an album. I got the Chen photocard and the last picture I’m posting has the back of that card. I got the Blooming version of the album and while I did not get my bias Baekhyun’s photocard, I’m so happy to own a physical copy of this lovely music. Also, the packaging is a bit delicate and I already dinged it up a bit…ah well.

For my chingu and fellow EXO-L @estee to see

    Oohh… So pretty!!! I never buy physical korean album.. I prefer digital ones. But after seeing this, I am gonna save my money to buy exo’s next physical album too..

      yes that’s what I’m planning on doing too 😀 I’ve always been the type of fan who buys physical CDs so of course I had to buy kpop ones esp when an album is as musically cohesive as this one is!

      I’ve never been one to buy physical copies, but it’s so much fun collecting albums! There are photocards and photobooks. And of course, it helps EXO. 🙂 I’m going to buy the next album too!

        I pretty much own the entire discography for my favorite bands in physical cd form. However with kpop it’s so much more fun having the random photocards and the gorgeous photobooks when compared to how mostly boring it has become to purchase albums from English language artists.

          They have really good marketing! It’s making me sad there are so many different photocards, postcards and versions of the same album! For Pentagon even the disks are different. I kind of want to have them all, but I don’t want to (and can’t) spend so much money on one album.

          But I love the element of surprise! You never know which photocard you’ll get. And I love the photobooks.

            I feel the same was as you! Now part of me really wants the Days version of this album just to see whose photocard I get and because the cover is different and more my aesthetic. I’ve convinced myself to wait and not buy Days version right now…maybe in the future but not this year with the comeback happening soon.

            And oh geez, did you see the Magic album has 3 or is it 4 covers too? I’m not planning on buying that album though as I don’t listen to the Japanese music as much currently.

            I love the element of surprise too so this marketing really is good. Hwaiting @estee on resisting the temptation to buy more of the same Pentagon album!

            @ohhaeyoung
            Some hard-core fans buy more copies of the same album (to support EXO). I am not at that level. Haha, yeah, comeback is happening soon, so better save the money!

            Oh my, all versions look good! Exodus (the album) had individual covers for each member. I’ve heard that Sehun is sold out! Lol. But my friend got a Baekhyun version. I wonder if the photobook is full of that one member… I’ll have to ask her.

            So far there are so many albums I would love to buy and comebacks coming close, so I am not tempted yet. Plus, they don’t have different versions of the same album… (But they’ll be releasing a Japanese album. I’m not sure if I want it or not.)

            I don’t think I’m at that fan level yet either. I’ve heard of such fans but I can’t bring myself to do that quite yet 😛

            Yeah I mean if I was to choose to buy a Magic album cover, it’d be Baekhyun no hesitation! I didn’t know that about Exodus, I’ve never looked at the options available for that album. Do you think you’ll pre-order EXO’s comeback? I’m a little wary of pre-ordering any music usually but I’m sure I’ll love whatever EXO releases next.

            PS whoa you’re right about EXODUS, that’s a lotta covers http://kpopmart.com/product.php?id_product=8474 and they come in either silver or gold? OMG my eyes are overwhelmed!

            Yeah, me neither… I guess I’m not as dedicated.
            If I was to buy Magic… I would probably go with Xiumin?

            I probably will. I’ve always wanted to do it and didn’t do it last year. But I’m actually not sure if I’ll like the music. So I might think about it and decide later.

            I didn’t know there was gold and silver! Oh my, different level. Must be tough to choose a version when you don’t have a set bias! I myself wouldn’t know which one to choose.

    That’s so nice! I love how shiny the CD is! And the photocard is a great one, Chen looks really good there.
    I’m not sure if you understood Chen’s message on the photocard, so here’s my humble translation:
    The cold winter has passed and spring is finally here! Enjoy the warm spring! Give lots of love to Blooming Day!

    The photobook looks gorgeous, but that’s not a surprise, the whole MV was aesthetic. Thanks for the pictures! 🙂

      The CD is so shiny, I’m surprised I managed to get a good pic on my first try! Chen looks so cute in this photocard <3 and thank you so much for translating the photocard message, I actually had no clue what it said!! What a sweet message…and yes this is a gorgeous album and the photobook makes me happy to look at it but also a bit worried as it also seems delicate lol

What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim is the 50th kdrama I’ve finished after 2 and a half years of watching kdramas. It was a fun romcom, nothing deep and actually sort of superficial but very lighthearted.

    Congrats on your 50th! You’re doing better than me!

        You question made me go check. So, ummm, yeah…about that…turns out I’ve finished 51. 😅😂🤣 Last time I checked I was at forty something. Didn’t think I passed 50 at all.

        We’ve done a similar amount of damage in a similar amount of time! That’s awesome!

          Nice! My dramalist has 51 but one of them is Taiwanese (Fated to Love You) so doesn’t count as Kdrama 😛

          Yes we watch around the same pace then, I work a full time job and try to maintain some sort of social life thus it takes me about 2 weeks to finish a kdrama.
