    As a fan, this is really great. But I’m also super nervous for them

      Yeah…the language barrier makes me nervous. Rapmon always does the speaking, which is fine, but I wish he also wasn’t the main translator. Can they hire a translator to speak into everyones ear at least, so that while the rest may not respond at least they know what is being said?

      4
      1

        Exactly! I’m really hoping they could hire a translator for everyone.
        Then the other won’t be left with baffled faces while Rapmon talks.

        3
        1

          Yes! It would be awesome if they could comfortably speak Korean and not worry cuz they have a translator. They can’t be that expensive!!

      I don’t have any way of recording it, so I either have to stay up late or pray that it will be available online afterwards. Why does late noght tv have to be on so late? Hahahahaha

        I don’t even have cable in my apartment, but luckily it should be airing around Thanksgiving week since they’re doing it while they’re in the US for the AMAs. So I can watch it when I go home for Thanksgiving! And my parents watch his show anyway, so they’ll probably watch with me, hehe.

          You should get an antenna. I don’t have cable either, but it at least allows you to watch the basics. Plus, they have to broadcast in HD so even though it’s only an antenna it looks real pretty. 😊😉

      That would be so cool!! We need some Kpop fans in attendance to hype up the audience! I would if I could, but living on the West Coast kinda puts the kibosh on that…

        You can bet your ass that ARMYs will be trying to get tickets. Don’t worry… I’m sure they won’t let us down. (If they can show up for Kris playing basketball, they’ll show up for BTS, guaranteed)

The problem with sharing your DramaFever account with your dad is when we end up watching the same show (Temp of Love) but he gets way ahead. I don\’t know where I left off anymore!!! It shows I am on ep. 24, I am most definitely not on ep. 24 but I can\’t remember what episode I am actually on! 😫

    I’m not an ARMY but I do really like BTS and I am SO EXCITED!!!! I am going to force my parents to watch with me hehehe. It also sounds like the executive producer of the Ellen show is trying to get them on her show. I will be so happy if that happens. My mom watches Ellen so I can’t wait for us to watch and I can say “SEE MOM? A K-POP GROUP IS ON ELLEN. I’M NOT WEIRD ANYMORE!!” I’ve been listening to K-pop for 10 years and it makes me so happy that it is finally getting recognition.

      Hahahaha. Ellen would be amazing!!! She is so wonderful with her guests, I think that would be a great environment for them. They can be more relaxed and silly even. I have seen some reeeeally awkward English interviews. Don’t want that.

          I read DNA. I wish it was Fire. I think that song is better for performances and I personally think it would go down better with the public. But DNA is what got them on the charts so…

            Oh really? They’re gonna do DNA? But Fire and Not Today are better for large audiences and unknown audiences…
            On which charts?

            0

            @sicarius I totally agree with you. I think those are more universal.

            It’s Billboard Charts. We don’t really have other music charts unless you count itunes. They reached Hot 100 in the US. plus a bunch of others.

            0

            Would be nice if they could perform both, at least partially. Like DNA into Fire. I’m not sure how much time they have though. I don’t listen to a whole lot of K-Pop, but BTS won me over with both Fire and Not Today. I bet seeing Fire live is quite the experience. One would have to be heavily biased to not appreciate it at least a little. 😕 Anyways, I wish them the best of luck, regardless of what they choose.

I have officially been to a Korean wedding. It was done in both Korean and English (for the 2% of us non Korean speakers). Both the mothers of the bride and groom wore beautiful hanboks. I was able to try tteokbokki for the first time. And of course the bride was beautiful.

    what’s the tteokbokki taste like? is it spicy?

      It wasn’t super spicy. It was good, but would probably be even better if fresh. It’s chewy.

      Indeed! It was quite lovely. It was mainly an “American” style wedding, but with Korean traditions interspersed throughout (eg. the bride and groom bowed to their parents). It will also be my last Korean wedding as she is my only Korean friend. Hahaha

Taemin is mesmerizing! No one can deny his stage presence. I don’t think I took my eyes off him once. Not a massive follower of Shinee, but this deserved a view (or 20). He got moves.

    I don’t listen to much Shinee, but every time I see Taemin dance I get amazed at how fluid his movements are. He just is the music. Undeniably the best kpop dancer and also one of the best dancers in general that I have ever seen.

      I have yet to watch it, still in my queue. But it deals with labor issues in a grocery store I believe. It was on my radar since a long time ago because of D.O.

        I thought he was very good in both I Remember You and It’s Okay, That’s Love.

          Yes, I have really enjoyed his performance in what I have seen him in. I believe Cart is a tear jerker which is why I have yet to actually watch even though it’s in the queue. My heart isn’t ready yet. lol.

          I am just so glad that Netflix is getting more Korean movies. I saw that Inside Men has also been added. With movies it’s especially hard to find them, let alone subtitled, if they are not on legal sites. I have a bunch of movies I would love to see but just aren’t available in the US.

          1
          2

            It’s the same for us. I want to watch A Map against the World but haven’t seen that it’s subtitled yet. I was pleased when I managed to pick up a copy of Admiral, Roaring Currents when I was in London recently. I ought to look into Netflix, I guess, though how I carve out more time I don’t know.

        Ooh. Quebec sounds a really interesting place. A friend of mine was there with her daughter not so long ago and told me a bit about it. We are in rural Normandy here about an hour from the coast at Honfleur, Deauville etc. It is further to the Mont St Michel where they were at the weekend.

          I have always wanted to go! I took French in high school and couldn’t afford to go with the class at that time. Never had the opportunity since. I have yet to go to Europe!

          Ah, Normandy be must lovely and the countryside too! Close to both Paris and England! If I may ask, are you French born and raised? Or are you a transplant?

            I’m from the UK but I like to think I’m a European. (No thanks to Mrs May!) My daughter and I moved here a couple of years ago and we’ve been busy getting the willow beds planted and established so we can eventually grow enough willow for our baskets. We are about two hours from Paris by train from the nearest town.
