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.

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.)

Update: Everything hurts.

Muscle-wise, that is. (Ok. Maybe a bit feels-wise as well..)

I was at the gym with my Grandma yesterday. (We go once a week. ♥) I pushed myself extra hard and was quite proud of myself. (I figured out that working out while listening to kpop gives me the push I need… More about kpop below because of reasons.)

Well. I hadn’t taken into consideration that today was the day to “make the yard of my building ready for winter”.  Which means raking leaves. Lots. Of. Raking. Involved.

Don’t get me wrong, I liked it. My neighbours are lovely. We had so many laughs. There was some sausage grilling and refreshments. I totally ate two sausages even though I don’t usually eat meat. I feel so bad. The weather was absolutely freezing. The sauna after was heaven.

But now I have a nasty cough. Sore throat. (Super unfair if I’m sick tomorrow, it’s my day off!)

And my arms and shoulders and back are killing me.

(Also TMI I got my period so: fun times.)

*aggressively making tea*

So… Kpop. Oh. My. God. My friend got me into kpop. I hate her so much for it Joke I love her really lols ♥.

I’m always checking out things recommended to me but honestly? I wouldn’t have thought I’d like kpop this much. Damn. I should probably make a whole rant post about it but I’m still in denial about obsessing over it so maybe later. haha

Here’s to hoping I’ll feel better tomorrow!

Love, Satu

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!

Feast your eyes and ears:

Music Matters – Serenata by Immediate Music

Just thinking about this instrumental masterpiece gives me the goosebumps. Seriously, I’m shivering as I’m typing this. (And it’s not just because of this nasty cold I have.) I go back to this song regularly and fall in love with it all over again.

The song is powerful and pure epicness.

Here it is Immediate Music – Serenata:

(Btw I like this version better than Serenata Immortale.)

I found Serenata first when I stumbled upon the following The Host fanvid on YouTube. Still to this day it is one of my favourite videos. (Love the book, movie was kind of nah. This vid is way better than the movie..) I have no idea why the vid is not showing in HD.. Damn.

Excuse my fangirling now omg. I’ve seen this video so so many times and now I’m all hyped because I have NEVER before noticed that they used Jensen Ackles for Jared in the vid! How is this even possible! (And now I’m laughing for the Jared part. Get it? Jared Padalecki?)

Well I did see this vid before I started watching Supernatural but still I have seen this many times after I started to watch SPN. This video will never be the same again.

Btw starring also Ian Somerhalder as Ian. And I love the look of Sophia Bush as Melanie. ♥

This post has turned into a fangirl rant now. As my life usually does.

 

Music Matters – Great Divide by Hanson

One of my favourite songs. Really powerful. I love finding it again. And again.

So excited to share it with you guys! Hanson did the song to help fight the HIV epidemic in Africa.

My friend was talking about how MMMBop was stuck in her head and so I got all hyped up and kind of dived into the Hanson part of YouTube.

GREAT DIVIDE by HANSON

The second video is my favourite.
The earth is shaking under siege
And every breath will meet it’s fate
Still we hunger for a moment of freedom
Even though the hour is late

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don’t see
I find hope in your hate for me
Have no fear when the waters rise
We can conquer this great divide

When every eye is on the fortune
It can only breed contempt
They say blood is thicker than oceans
Still we box our brothers in

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don’t see
I find hope in your hate for me
Have no fear when the waters rise
We can conquer this great divide
