[Book Review] Mark James Russell - Kpop: The Korean Music Revolution

   This will be my shortest review ever - don't bother reading. In this book you won't find the title "revolution" explained in detail, you will not find any in-depth analysis of the phenomenon. Instead, you will find:
  • Profiles of all the current K-pop artists and their hits
  • A look at Seoul's hippest hot spots and hangouts
  • Interviews with top artists like Kevin from ZE:A (that's a stretch!!) and Brian Joo from Fly to the Sky
  • A look at the Kpop idols of tomorrow *
And that would be EXO all over the place.

"November Has Come"

   Some music for the lovely month of November. This time, I went ballistic, you will have teuroteu, Morrissey and Kpop.
You have been warned.

Who likes Ddeokbokki?

   Park Myeongsu's Ddeokbokki of course^^ Ever since hearing this song for the first time, it's on my daily "Feel Good" playlist. It has this familiar, rural-stylized feel, catchy rhythm and absolutely positive flow. With a substantial dose of weirdness.

Wake Me Up When...

    ...Koreans get their priorities right. Oh well, let's not be biased, let's say - when fandoms get their priorities straight, because what's been happening in September in our lovely Hallyuland, can turn a normal person into a raging Hulk within 0.00000001 sec.
September is an eventful month in this particular world. Kdrama-llama land may be barren and boring for months but when events start to happen, it's a deluge.

7 Deadly Sins

   This is probably the most shocking, politically incorrect, disgusting and heavy thing I have watched in 2014. This 20-something minutes per episode show will not triumph at Emmy's Awards. Or maybe it will, who am I to judge?
