How I got into KPOP?

I saw this post by kwenzqoatl and decided to make one of my own. ^^

Because yes, I have fallen into the doom that is KPOP aka Korean pop music.

Help.

I had heard of jpop (japanese pop) before but wasn’t familiar with it. I didn’t know that kpop even existed.

Until last year. When my friend got into kpop. I was a happy bystander for a while. Good-naturedly laughing at them for fangirling something so hard. Without realising I’m the biggest fangirl and would follow their tracks very soon. Good times.

At first I thought that kpop was kind of teenagey? (Not as a bad thing though obviously.) Which I get because of the girl and boy groups and synchronized dancing. They were popular when I was young.

During the summer 2016 I watched my friend hyping kpop and by October I was listening to it too. Classic. (So I’ve been a fan for less than a year so I’m fairly new into this but boy have I fallen hard.)

So here are some songs and music videos that got me into the world of kpop.

Fullmetal Alchemist

I had a blank page open (like I often do…) and was about to write a post complaining about anything and everything. Hashtag hormonal rage.

BUT.

Then the second teaser trailer for Fullmetal Alchemist dropped. Fangirl mode: on.

 

Independence Day and MAMA feels

Since it’s a national holiday in Finland (Independence Day ♥) I decided to come here to dig this blog up again from the coat of dust. Yay.

Basically I just have too many feels and have to get them out somehow. Story of my life. 

So. I’ve mentioned in passing before that I got addicted to kpop… And listening to the music is like only a small part of it. Damn.

Anyway.

Mnet Asian Music Awards aka MAMA 2016 was held in Hong Kong last Friday. And I watched the whole thing last weekend. (With my Mom haha she’s such a fangirl even though she didn’t have a clue what was happening.)

Little bit obsessed – The Arena by Lindsey Stirling

I randomly subscribed to Lindsey Stirling’s YouTube channel after stumbling upon her Lord of the Rings medley. She is, according to our dear friend Wikipedia: “a violinist, dancer, performance artist, singer and composer.” She also has gorgeous hair.

I first watched The Arena at the end of June when it came out. I liked it, liked the video, then pretty much forgot about it.

Until a month later when I suddenly started thinking about it? It was quite random and weird. I was about to meet with a friend and I thought that she would really like the video.

So I went on YouTube to find it and BAM! It just hit me. Now I’m just listening to it on repeat. (Thank heavens it’s on Spotify!) Today it was my jam at the gym.

Just wanted to share this little obsession of mine. If you listen or watch it tell me what’d you think!
