Epic MV

March 29, 2011 § 2 Comments

Just wanted give every one a reminder concerning this absolutely epic MV by Brown Eyed Girls.

The first times I watched it I was not that enthusiastic, thought it was to racy and unnecessarily sexy. I changed my mind quite fast on that one. God or bad I really don’t know, but a fact. It is also fascinating for me that this group has some of the oldest members in the idol industry of South Korea, since most of the members are turning 30 this year. I like. Ceck out the epic MV with it’s ever trending coreography:

WTF. NH Media, is this it?

March 29, 2011 § 1 Comment

The mini album Bran New KISS from U-Kiss was released today, and when I finaly got home I actually sat down to listen to it, with a bit of pain in my heart. If you ever visited this blog before you know how hard it’s been for me to accept the way NH Media handled their idols over this last month. The company NH Media said that they wanted to make changes in U-Kiss and fired Alexander and Kibum. Also, Alexander just happend to be one of the reasons for me to like U-Kiss aso it hurt even more because of this but I felt that NH Media treated the two members and the rest of the group in a really bad way. To say out open that idols lack in skills, is not the most clever thing you could do to keep your fans supporting. And it’s agianst every aspect of politeness.

Anyway, the new mini album is here, two new members joined. And the result… IT SOUNDS EXACTLY like it did a couple of months ago with the old settings of members, but with out a hit song. So the big change is? Seriously, i was a bit afraid since I actually thought for a while that they would be back with something incredible, but this is not incredible, this is U-Kiss ordinaire. And the member change was to do what?

Hah, with me being this upset it wouldn’t surprise me if they for the first time would actually win something…

Disappointed but happy/The Future is Idol

March 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

In a matter of a month, the percentage of friends of mine from Stockholm living i Seoul increased with a couple of hundred(4). They are all really talented people, with different kinds of blogs up and running. My friends at Seoul Wut is at the moment attending Seoul Fashion Week, so check out their tumblr. My very close friends at DancingOnOurOwn moves to Seoul in a matter of days. Heartbreaking for me, but so cool at the same time. Follow and enjoy.

Epic Fanboy Moments

March 27, 2011 § 1 Comment

Hopefully this is a segment of the blog that will grow in time. Epic moments of fanboyism. This is a clip from a fan meeting with SHINee. Suddenly in the middle of the interview a fanboy screams Jonghyuns name and every one reacts to it. Jonghyun becomes really happy since it is a fanboy not just fangirls and he looses his focus completly. Epic.

h&m, Onew and my new t-shirt

March 27, 2011 § 7 Comments

So, when I found out that Onew and Taemin wore t-shirts from h&m in the pics for SHINee Clothing Auction I had to go downtown Stockholm city and see if I could find the tees myself. And yes, they were there, a few sizes left, and yes I had to make a purchase. This is me wearing the same as Onew had on for the photo shoot. I’m really not Onews biggest fan, but on the other hand, he is my second favourite in SHINee.

In some strange way you feel a bit connected to that world when you do these things once in a while. Like last summer when my friends sang(screamed) “Tell me your wish” for me and threw cake in my face on my birthday, SME style.

About being a fanboy pt. 2, a month went by.

March 27, 2011 § 1 Comment

One month has now passed since I started this blog, clearly it was a really good decision to do so.

To be a fan of something is to create a bubble of life for yourself, and perhaps a few others. It is as close to magic you probably ever will get. But you will still have an outside world to deal with and to live in. Jobs, schools and friendship does not go away when you loose yourself in fandom, these things are still there at the end of the day. On the same time, you know that very few people around you will understand this magic. Because this kind of fandom, whatever it may concern, as intense as it is, not the easiest thing to go through and to handle.

I am a grown man in many aspects. I’ve gone through school, university and relationships. I have a job and live on my own since quite a few years. But if i look back ten years in time, I find myself in the middle of my High School years, and surprisingly, with the same dreamy mindset as I have now. The biggest difference is the fact that I get to do the decision making on my own and that I have more responsibilities now. I also discovered that all of this works great together for me, it gives my life more dimensions with every year. I want this.

After starting up this blog, so many things had to be dealt with in my head. To write posts here is not just fun, I mean its a great joy, but also a lot of hard work, and a great deal of soul searching. Through out the blog posts I have to deal with the ambivalence of my own fandom. To write about SNSD as loving their songs and their MVs but still be a feminist with a critical view of a world full of sexism, how can I explain it? Still there are no real answers, but the fact that I try to deal with this is important enough for me.

To share my thoughts upon this i also important. It is actually easier to explain what I love and have problems with once through text rather then doing the explenations over and over in front of friends that stands outside of this bubble, but I desperatly want to include in some ways. I want all the people close to me to understand my intense fandom for pop culture, Kpop and the idol industry. But I also know that I can’t demand that every one understands. How to get arround this problem I don’t know.

My parents both started subscribing to this blog a couple of days ago, maybe and hopefully they will get a feeling of what I’m interested in, and what I find fascinating. Not that I expect them to love the music or the industry behind it, but to be able to understand their son a bit more and to bring us even closer to each other. Also I am happy to discover that friends of mine read my posts, not all of them all the time but once in a while, which I’m truly greatful for. Perhaps this can bring us closer as well.

So, one month went by, many hundreds of people read what I wrote, which amazes me, and some even came back here over and over again. There is still so much more to write about concerning SNSD, Alexander Eusebio, 4Minute, KARA, Key, being a fanboy, the idol industry and everything related. Also, Mis will be back with more thoughts on ethics and being a fangirl. We hope that you will come back here again to share our words and feelings.
