Possessed Ep 13: This show knows no boundaries. I cannot predict what is going to happen next. They are building up to an epic finale and I am on the edge of my damn seat.

Season 2 of Killing Eve has started and waiting one week for a new episode is DREADFUL. I need it NOW.

What song got you into Kpop? For me it was this masterpiece: I Love You by 2NE1

    December 2016: I’d been watching a variety of kpop MVs for a few weeks because other beanies seemed to be really into this kpop thing and I thought I would check it out. I hadn’t found anything that really grabbed me but then I saw GOT7’s Just Right and I completely fell for the song and the seven guys singing it.

    I remember it as if it was yesterday. The song was SNSD’s Genie/Tell Me Your Wish. I thought it was just perfect. I started listening to SNSD and other K-pop groups after.

    As sad as it sounds, it was Produce 101, s2 – before I knew about how mistreated the trainees are πŸ™ – & BTS “Boy in Luv”. I was checking out the originals of songs performed that I’d kind of like, which led to me finding the original Boy in Luv and absolutely falling in love with it.

      I’m not an Army or a BTS fan but I still maintain that “Boy in Luv” (besides “Tomorrow”) is one of their best songs PERIOD. It’s just so good!

        It is! I love how the members play with various sounds – growls, a car, etc etc throughout the song. Apart from the rock sound haha. 😁 It’s what made me fall in love

      ha ha ha a.. me too.. found boy in luv and fire (BP) through produce s2..

      gotta give them the credit to even get me an iota bit interested in kpop..

      i’d listened to kpop so many times before but never liked even one song (ridiculous because now those same songs i can listen to on repeat.. Big Bang being the biggest ones to benefit.. lol.. life is funny)

        It just takes that one song. Once you get into it, it’s so diverse there’s something for everyone.

          ha ha.. i wonder.. to be very honest.. boy in luv is the only song of BTS that i actually listen to.. rest i haven’t even able to complete half way through..

          or bP.. i think i just like that part “fire part..

          but yes.. indeed.. it takes 1 song to get into sthg…
          like cheer up (thnks all variety shows that were playing it at oen point in time) and produce S2 πŸ˜›

          sorry. cut midway..

          but yeah the song that really made me take notice of kpop has to be “Let’s not fall in love” and “Loser”.. made series overall

          yup meant kpop too.. bts is one of the groups.. i don’t think i can call any of the groups a consistent performer for my taste..and it’s amazing how people stan music of particular groups ..they must be performing for them, i guess..

          rather overall. .. in any language.. it always is about that one thing to get you started (kpop or any entertainment content)

    For me it was DBSK’s “Proud” (Japanese release). I was trading songs with my friend over our Sony Ericsson walkman phones (ah, those were the days) in 2007. Started listening to K-pop and never looked back.

    I wouldn’t really say I’m “in to” kpop, because I only pay attention to one group, but I accidentally saw Mamamoo on You Hee-yeol’s Sketchbook doing “Mr Ambiguous” and “Um Oh Ah Yeh”. Besides the visuals and the music, I liked they way they obviously (even to a total noob) tweaked to words to work in the names of the host and the show. It seemed like they were having more fun than people are supposed to have while under a slave contract πŸ™‚

    I think it was one of Super Junior or SNSD’s old song (circa 2009), but then I got a bit tired of Kpop after 1 or 2 years. Then SHINee rekindled it years later with their Sherlock album.

    Oh, but I can’t NOT mention how several years before that I really randomly got into Rain. After my mom died in 2010 I became OBSESSED with Ninja Assassin. Which became me being OBSESSED with Rain and seeking him out online and watching Full House 50times and then learning that that beautiful man was a singer and listening to and watching all of his stuff online. But, I didn’t become a fan–as in listening to the music as part of my everyday life–until GOT7.
    Although, kind of CNblue at the same time now that I think about it. Because, the next day In Sept/Oct of 2016 DGA gave me Coffee Prince to watch and I fell down the kdrama rabbit hole and started watching whatever I could get my hot little hands on and Heartstrings was one of my first dramas—like, maybe the 3rd or 4th drama I ever watched and I fell in love HARD with Jung Yong Hwas voice. I was out in these internets trying to find this man without any clue what his name was, or any of the english lyrics to the song he sings about his father in the drama but DETERMINED to find out SOMETHING. And that lead me to CNBlue. So….CNBlue and GOT7 about the same time. But Rain a full 6 years before.

Violeta is a bop, but I present to you Highlight which is the superior track on HEART*IZ.

    I like Violeta (the choreography is just so, so pretty) but I kinda wish they promoted with Highlight instead.

      Agreed, Highlight as the title would be fabulous. Just imagine how amazing the choreo would be. But, Violeta as the title was a smart choice to amplify their LVER concept and please the general public. Hoping we will see a performance of Highlight during their KCON circuit.

Ok Beanies, I have questions about the end of Kingdom. Will leave in the comments…

    So, apparently what put the zombies to sleep was the temperature? This has me so confused. Based on the foliage seen in the drama I’m guessing this is set in the fall, right? Were the zombies put to sleep because it was hot during the day? But as fall progresses the days start to get colder so they can come out during the day now, too? This still doesn’t make sense to me because the zombies ran away the second the sun came out. The temperature isn’t raised by some huge amount with the first few rays of sun…..If someone has a better explanation of this please help!

      They said it was the temperature, not the sunlight. You saw in the final episode the frost on their beards even when the sun was out.

      1
      1

        Yes and that makes sense because it is a noticeable temperature change. But, earlier on when the disease first started to spread (and we can assume it was early on or midway through fall), the temperature at night and the temperature when the sun first comes up (which is when the zombies were put to sleep each time) is really no different. Perhaps I’m reading into it too much or the temperature in Korea at that time of year is vastly different than where I live.

      I didn’t think too much of that one detail at the time bc I was trying to recover from that ending but I think there’s something we’re (and the characters) are missing about the zombies and how they function.
      Or it could just be the day’s specific weather – sunny/cloudy/rain etc ? (That last battle looked like a cloudy day?) OR the sunlight vs. nighttime being used simply to illustrate the idea of temperature changes?

      Eve & Villanelle’s infatuation/obsession with each other is SO interesting. My jaw was on the floor the entire dinner scene as well as the final scene of the season. I need season 2 now. April is too far away πŸ™

      Jodie Comer is my new girl crush. She makes it easy to relate to and like a very twisted character. The wry/dark humor is well done.

        Yeah, I think she is really cool, I’m looking foward to seeing what other projects she works on.

        Have you watched thirteen, she was brilliant in that but it is very dark and difficult to watch.

Ep 3 & 4 of Reach of Sincerity really gave the show some momentum. The ending of Ep 4 was surprising. I don\’t want anything bad to come to our little angel couple!

    Agree. I thought it was a light and fluffy show with nothing much happening (i still enjoyed it). I was glad Episode 4 kicked in some plot. And a serious issue at that.

The Cha family scene in Episode 14 of Sky Castle is one of the most powerful TV moments I have watched in awhile. Incredible acting from each cast member. Bravo.
