Congrats to WINNER! Even though the team I wasn’t supporting took it, when I went to vote, I realized I had become so accustomed to seeing the winning group together, and couldn’t picture them being broken up in any way, while the other team had members whose faces I wasn’t remembering as part of the group (if that makes sense). It made me even doubt if I was voting for the right team. It was a really close race though. All 11 of the guys are really talented, and I wish them the best. ♥

Side note: from an analytical approach, this show was quite interesting, and I’m curious to see what will happen as a result not only to the artists involved, but to the music and entertainment industry in Korea as a whole. If you haven’t watched any of the episodes, they are on Mnet’s YouTube channel, and they have English subs (and I think Spanish and 日本語 too).

30 Day K-Pop Challenge - Day 9: Your favorite k-pop performance

This performance reminds me of when Michael Jackson would rearrange his songs to be played by a real band to add to the largeness of a live arena atmosphere (if that makes sense). Great stuff!
Side note: sorry for all the BB. I do actually listen to other stuff. It’s just that this is too good to pass up!

30 Day K-Pop Challenge - Day 7: A k-pop song that makes you cry

This technically isn’t “K-Pop,” but it is a Korean song that comes from a popular artist in Korea so there. Whether or not you understand all the lyrics, you can feel the emotion in the song. Especially after you read his story (I know it’s lengthy, but it’s definitely worth the read! Soooo moving). This man was the victim of the most brutal example of cyber bullying I’ve ever heard of, and I’m surprised he came through the other side. You know it’s bad when Ashton Kutcher tweets to tell people to stop, and he didn’t even know the guy.
