It’s even more fun with Korean vowels:

this is usually my reaction to fried chicken as well

And people say it’s only black people who get excited over fried chicken

We’re not alone after all.

Guess what?

Why? Because this is my new jam. And yes, I may be a VIP first, but guess what? 

Look at the above GIF again.

Here’s what I wrote about it on facebook:

Finally, a Korean single from U-KISS that I love even more than Neverland - in fact, I like it even more than their Japanese stuff! I’m so glad they’ve finally broken their addiction to constant auto-tuning and broken “this is Mordney present” English, and had some killer harmonies (btw, I noticed a bass voice in there, I wonder who it is). This group has really blossomed over the past year, and I’m looking forward to what they have next. ^_^


The rumors about Caucasian people in KPOP groups…..

IF those are really true…

I came into KPOP because of the KOREAN people. 

I wanted to see KOREANS! ASIANS! 

I think Koreans/ASIANS are so beautful! Maybe it’s because I’m

a Caucasian in the US and I’m tired of seeing my own 

kind everywhere; TV, stores, ETC. It’s nice seeing 

something different you know? I don’t want a “Justin Bieber”

to be part of a KPOP group…..It just wouldn’t look right….

….As immature as I may sound….


Having Chinese, Japanese, Thai members are fine but Caucasian? o.O

Sorry, it won’t do for me….


To me this sounds like “Oh I’m so sick of being treated well and seeing people like me being acknowledged for their talent and being seen as beautiful all the time.”


Still at my age in America I can think of only one celebrity that looked like my “race” on mainstream television, and I can vividly remember the day I first saw her and how me and my family felt. I remember feeling like I really could be or do anything I wanted to no matter what it was. Although I felt positive towards the idea of doing what I wanted, seeing her on TV really cemented that any dream I had could become whatever I wanted. If you’re sick of seeing white people all the time, move somewhere that doesn’t have a Caucasian majority. K-Pop is Korean Pop because the language of the music is primarily Korean and the music is made in Korea. Saying that Caucasians can’t make Korean music because they’re white is like saying Asians/Asian-Americans can’t make American pop because they’re not white or black - which is exactly why some Americans and Canadians of Asian descent are leaving for Korea to become pop stars in the first place.

This is by far the best choreography and English coaching I’ve ever seen. [Turn on annotations for subtitles]

Ah, Jo Kwon, I love you. Can you just be my sassy best friend? Kthxbai.



“Im…im FOGI”

Ring Pop and Korean TV. Yup, this pretty much sums up my blog title.

See? It’s pretty easy telling the difference.


(via 9GAG - And now you know!)

2127. Asian Languages. Fyi, here’s how you tell them apart.

Day 3: If you could speak another language, what would it be?

한국어, obvi. I can already speak it a bit and read it, but if I could be completely fluent in just one language other than English, Korean would be my first choice. Not just because of music or television over there, but the language itself is intrinsically beautiful in my opinion - even down to the way the syllabic blocks function.

I know, I’m a language nerd…okay maybe just a straight up nerd nerd.

Ditto. Classic.


this never fails to amuse me.

This video is adorable and witty and matches the song perfectly. It’s a nice pick-me-up sort of song that makes my day a little brighter. ^_^
