Pristin

so it looks like pledis finally took pristin [previously known as pledis girlz] out of the dungeon! they came out with their debut song ‘wee woo’, which is a really catchy song so i’m sure you’ll like it.

you probably recognize the girls from produce 101 [which was basically a survival show in which the top 11 girls get to debut in ‘ioi’ for a year; with nayoung and pinky previously in ioi] as the girls had auditioned with after school’s bang.

right now i’m not sure who’s my bias, it’s a tie between pinky, siyeon, and rena.

but you know what? just stan pledis, they got talent 😉

Lets Go!

WOO look at that beautiful fashion statement Cutie and I created, it looks extreme.

After meeting with Cutie on Fantage [which just happened to be fate], I decided to revamp this blog and get it going! I’ll be changing the blog look this week, and writing more posts since it is March Break.

I haven’t exactly been busy the past year, so it looks like you and I will be able to do some bonding 😉

Now I really need to know; what happened since ‘Fantage Confessions’?

+ also stan nu’est, check them out on produce 101 season 2 legit.

Happy New Year: 2017


Happy new year, guys! 

I know 2016 was one of the worst years in our lives but let’s hope that 2017 wouldn’t be as bad as that. Since I am moving up to Year 8, I suppose I would have less time to blog but I promise that I wouldn’t be on a hiatus like last year. 

For 2017, I’m looking forward to change the blog theme, improve a few parts of the sites (gotta talk with Yuki about this) and post at least once a week. 

Again, happy new year and I certainly wish that 2017 would be much BETTER than 2016.

-cm-

P.S 2017 is not going to be the Year of My Life because I’m DREADING to become a Year 8 (you know, studies and teachers and still NO selective subjects). Also, T.O.P from BIGBANG (who is also my bias) is going to army, and THAT is definitely not a good way to start 2017.

Unpopular K-Pop Opinions: Koreaboos

 If the ANIME fandom has WEABOOS,

 the K-POP fandom has KOREABOOS


  Annyeonghasaeyo, my friends. It’s Chocolatemonstar, the saram who likes BIGBANG oppas and 2NE1 unnies.

no, i’m not a koreaboo… i just wanna be asian!1!!!


Koreaboos.

Just. Freaking. KOREABOOS.

Before a non-Kpop fan comes up to me and ask what in the world is a Koreaboo, I shall explain this easy for you.

A Koreaboo is a  person who is extremely obsessed with Hallyu-related stuff such as K-Pop, Korean drama, comics and so on.

Hmm… well…

That sounds fine. Nothing dangerous about Koreaboos. They love Korean stuff, just like how Weaboos getting crazy about Japanese stuff.

BUT. Let’s add a bit more details to this definition.

A non-Korean person who is overly obsessed with Korean pop culture, generally to the point of wishing to be re-born as a Korean or make themselves seem more Korean physically or by adopting mannerisms    and speaking habits.

(PPAP voice)

I got a WEABOOw, I got K-Pop. take out the ‘weea’

URGH. Koreaboo.

This is how Koreaboo works. Just imagine a K-Pop fan. No, a hardcore K-Pop fan who likes anything that is related to Korea. Now, imagine this hardcore K-Pop fan screaming random Korean words and wishing that s/he wants to become a Korean.

Yeap. There you go.


Some people might say that Koreaboos are just hardcore K-Pop fans who just really, really like K-Pop, K-Dramas and such. But I kinda disagree with this. Koreaboos are STRAIGHTFORWARD.

KOREA is where they want to go and LIVE in. KOREANS are who they like and what they want to be. KOREAN is what they want to speak. KOREAKOREAKOREA is love.

To be honest, as a Korean, I want to go out and vomit when it comes to “Koreaboos”.

I mean, I really appreciate that there are a bunch of lovely people like my country’s culture but… Sometimes, people do cross the line.

Getting obsessed with a certain nationality, country and… people (not K-Pop idols or Korean actors and actresses, I’m talking about normal citizens).

It’s a bit too much. I don’t know why but I had seen many Koreaboos having this ‘stereotypical’ thought about all Koreans lookin’ good like K-Pop stars and wishing that they would date with Koreans.

Not to mention that they have a HUUUGEE expectation that Korea is a country where rainbows, sparkly unicorns and K-Pop stars walking on the streets exist.

The main reason why I have negative opinions about Koreaboos is that they fetishize Koreans (sometimes Asians in general) and disrespect the Korean culture and country in various racist ways.

Koreaboos are usually pretending to be Koreans by spitting out random Korean phrases or words, but deep inside they have NO actual understanding of the culture or whatsoever.

Unsurprisingly, I feel awfully uncomfortable and disgusted at the fact that there are people trying to sexualize people and disgracing my cultural background.

“I want to date a cute Korean girl!”

“Hah… I want to be a Korean!”

“That Korean guy looks Kim Soo Hyun oppa!!!”

“I wouldn’t mind him because he is KOREAN!”

“I’m going to do some aegyo! Oppa…!”

Stop. Just stop.

Koreans are just Koreans. K-Pop is just K-Pop. Korea is just Korea. Nothing ‘special’ or ‘cute’. No ‘wow’ factors about it.

So PLEASE… I’m going to say this again: JUST STOP. You can be an awesome       K-Pop fan without sexualising people, disrespecting culture and pretending to be a Korean.

We Need to Talk About BIGBANG

let’s check out these two LIT songs before reading my stupid post

SKRRRRRTTT. It’s been over a WEEK since BIGBANG released three beautifully crafted new songs (and music videos) to save the K-Pop industry.

When the music videos were first released, I was absolutely determined to write about a blog post about it. But thanks to my extreme procrastination, I forgot about the blog post for weeks and as a result, was under an awfully long hiatus.

ANYWAYS

Let’s return to our REAL topic.


  • note: I changed my username into ‘oksusu’ (pronunciation: ock-su-su/definition: ‘corn’ in korean). but you guys can still call me cm, oksusu or potato… just whatever you want.

BIGBANG released two music videos and three songs.

Fxxk It (title song): Music Video

A lit song that saved 2K16 K-Pop in the last minute. Believe it or not, dabbing is required if you want to dance to it bigbang still look cool and not cringey when they dab this is unfair why

Unlike Last Dance, it’s more of a ‘hip-hop’ and ‘R&B’ mash up with a sprinkle of electronic beats. Plus, Daesung’s vocals are ASTONISHING in this freaking song and I actually feel that people would start to acknowledge his beautiful-but-underappreciated vocals after listening to ‘Fxxk It’.

As usual, BIGBANG never fails to come up with a good party song and like ‘Fantastic Baby’ and ‘Bang Bang Bang’, the two iconic party songs, ‘Fxxk It’ is absolutely catchy and lit.


Last Dance (title song): Music Video

*tears come out as I try to listen to it’

Surprisingly, Last Dance is not a love song i hate this love song i hate this love song saramdeul Instead, it is about the experiences and journey BIGBANG had to go through for the past ten years. ‘Last Dance’ is dedicated to the fans (VIPs) who had stayed behind BIGBANG’s backs regardless the situation and obstacles they had to face.

It is a seriously amazing song that would make you cry a river and build a bridge over it. I was literally crying in a pool of sadness while listening to ‘Last Dance’ and thinking about the struggles and painful BIGBANG (and VIPs) had to face.

10 years sounds really, really long.

And yes, it is LONG. Long enough for a group of five young teenagers, who had to keep on practicing in awful conditions, to grow up and become one of the best K-Pop artists.

I don’t know how to feel about this song. It is so touching, beautiful and painful to explain it in words.

The last time BIGBANG made a fan song was when they were singing songs like ‘Haru Haru’ and ‘Sunset Glow’ in 2008 (… or somewhere around the late 2000’s). The song title was ‘Until Whenever’ and the lyrics were awfully painful but amazing. If I had to compare these two songs together, I would say that ‘Last Dance’ is an upgraded version of Until Whenever and shows how much BIGBANG had changed over time.

p.s) Seungri sounds like a freaking angel here.


Girlfriend: No music video

Yeah.

According to an interview, ‘Girlfriend’ is BIGBANG’s favorite new song.

Anyone could think that ‘Girlfriend’ is a typical love song that features a guy loving his girlfriend. But RING DING DONG THEY ARE WRONG!

As usual, the Kings do not follow the same path as others.

T.O.P had put in an extreme amount of time and effort to write the lyrics and it turns out that he and two other BIGBANG members thought about their fans (VIPs) while they wrote the song.

It would be incorrect to say that ‘Girlfriend’ is a love song since it is sorta dedicated to their fans- just like ‘Last Dance’.

I wanted to keep my explanation about ‘Girlfriend’ short and simple- since I don’t want to spoil the fun for you guys. Unlike ‘Fxxk it’ or ‘Last Dance’, ‘Girlfriend’ doesn’t have a music video (obviously, because it is not a title) but the FREAKIN QUALITY of this FREAKIN SONG would make you understand why it doesn’t need to have a music video.

Four words to summarize this paragraph: Just listen to it.


Which song do you like? Mine is ‘Last Dance’ because it makes me want to tear up whenever I listen to it.

URGH. Thinking about the fact that this will be BIGBANG’s last comeback before they go to military next year. We wouldn’t see them until 2020~2021, which is really depressing.

Now, let’s enjoy the final moments of BIGBANG before it is difficult to see them as a group again.
