[Series Review/ Top Ten Tuesdays/ WTF of the WEEK] All About Big

24 Jul

Well today marks the ending of one of the dramas I faithfully followed this year as Big makes aired its last episode. I’m a big fan of the very famous Hong sisters who are the writers of this show. I’ve seen only three of their shows: My GirlMy Girlfriend is a Guminho, and Best Love. Since I liked all three shows, I thought that I would fall easily in love with their new offering Big. Even Temi wrote about how wonderful the show was when it premiered. I felt the same fuzzies when we were introduced to our main characters and to some degree I still feel the same way about them now.

WTF of the Week: Crayon Pop

11 Jul

I really feel as though there should be a limit to the number of girl groups debuting each year. There’s been a gazillion debuts this year (i.e. GLAM, Hello Venus, PURETTY, Tahiti, Spica, etc.) and there are a couple more planned for later this summer. I really do make an attempt to listen to their music without judging, but so far…it’s all just so bad. Clarence and I made the mistake of listening to Brave Girls, and it made me want to shoot myself.  Continue reading

WTF of the Week: Super Junior’s MV Wardrobe

4 Jul

Although I haven’t written a WTF post for a pretty long time, I saw something recently that inspired me.

I watched the music video for the title track of Super Junior’s new album, Sexy, Free and Single a couple days ago. As much as I tried to focus on the song, I was completely distracted by their…let’s call it “fashion choice”. Now, I understand that these days, the wackier your MV is, the more attention it garners (i.e 2NE1’s “I’m the Best, Sunny Hill’s “Midnight Circus”). However, while some artists can pull it off, others cannot. SJ being a prime example. Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesdays: 10 Dumbest K-pop Names

3 Jul

Once upon a time, K-pop groups debuted with really cool names like Big Bang, Super Junior, Girl’s Generation, Shinhwa, g.O.d, etc. There wasn’t any sort of gimmick to their names and if there were some fancy meaning to their names (like g.O.d) they didn’t sound stupid, random, or nonsensical. However, a wave of newcomers in the recent years began experimenting with names that they think will make them stand out and sound more important or fancy with the English words they oh so carefully chose to describe their bands. The result: ill-fitting adjectives, unintentionally humorous names, and unfortunate jokes. Here at Dramapop, we’d like to share our list of the ten dumbest K-pop band names that we’ve come across.

Yes, this is another post about Infinte. ❤

I don’t really follow Korean variety shows, so today is the first time that I’ve heard that Infinite’s leader, Sunggyu, was a contestant on the singing show.  Continue reading

Adventures in Koreatown

12 Jun

My apologies for the lack of posts recently. I was invited to a conference in New York, so I have been getting lost around the entire city today. After missing the Amtrak from Philly, I finally got on a train at 5:30, arrived at Penn Station at 7:00, and have been wandering around for the past 2 hours. After multiple bouts of panic, depression and starvation, I suddenly found myself in Koreatown!! Continue reading

Top 10 Tuesdays: What I Like About “I Do, I Do”

Woot! I haven’t done one of this in a while. This is another multi-tasking post with two different blog features combined into 1 easy-to-digest (I promise!) post that accomplishes both tasks! This one has to do with the, by now, 2-week old drama “I Do, I Do”. I give you ten reasons why I adore this drama.
