What I’ve Been Up To Lately: Life And Drama Update

Hey ya’ll! How’s it going?? Me? A lot actually, both in life and in drama-land actually. Initially, I was planning to do a post solely about a particular drama I’m currently watching, but then I had realised that I was taking too long to do it. If I feel like it, maybe I’ll do recaps about it or something however for now, I think you all deserve an explanation for what has been happening in my life so far, and why have I gone MIA for the last 2 weeks or so.

Moving sucks. The end.

Moving sucks. The end.

So firstly, as I may have stated in another post previously, I am currently moving out of my current home (with the family) to a new one. The main issue was the fact that we didn’t choose to move out; we’ve been forced out of our current place in order for the house to be redone and resold to someone else. Since that happened, my family and I have been house hunting for weeks, and doing nothing else but. Just a couple of days ago, we had finally settled ourselves with a place, and are currently in the process of selling furniture, packing things up and organising the house in order to make sure that nothing is left behind. It’s been fun to actually discover things that I never knew existed (or find things that I never knew I had). I’m sure many of you probably understands that feeling but for me, it is foreign yet refreshing.

So, for the past two weeks or so, my house has transformed to a place piled with boxes left, right and centre containing my entire life that I had grown up knowing and loving. My life has been entirely turned upside down, and my mind has been just frazzled and unable to think and write anything. Hence the lack of posts and motivation to do anything but just pack and make sure that I get ready for university which starts in the next two weeks or so. I do apologise that I haven’t been posting anything; hopefully once I move into my new place, and get under way with uni, I will be more organised and consistent with my posts. It sucks that I haven’t been  able to write anything lately however, I wish to provide you with the best that I can do, rather than just anything that comes to mind just for the sack of posting something.

Anyway, the purpose of this post (apart from the obvious) was to actually inform you as to what I have been watching, what I’ve been checking out and finally what I have been following about to the point of pure madness…let’s start, shall we??

Girl’s Day’s “Something” is out, and it’s looking to be like Hyuna and the girls, but instead it’s Minah…*sigh* here we go again…

Hello, hello and I am back with my first K-pop review of the year!!! WOW, it has been such a long time; I almost forgot how reviews actually work around here LOLOLOL as if that could happen ><

Beautiful, sexy ladies...geez, as a woman myself I'm a bit thrown back as to how perfect they look >//<

Beautiful, sexy ladies…geez, as a woman myself I’m a bit thrown back as to how perfect they look >//<

Anyway, the first review of the year is Girl’s Day first comeback of the year called “Something”, which came out on the 3rd this month. The song is great, and reminds us of what Girl’s Day is capable of doing. However, the MV itself may speak a different story…is it just me, or is it a bit too Minah-biased?

If ya agree or wanna know what I’m talking about then please keep reading!

30 day Kpop Challenge – Day 11: Why do I keep going back to it in order to cry over it?!

Day 11: Your favourite k-pop music video

Morning everybody! So, today’s challenge proved to be a pickle. Is it really possible to actually condense all Kpop MVs down to one as my favourite?

No, that’s simply not possible HOWEVER, there is one MV that cuts it close for me.

And no, it isn’t a Super Junior MV (though many cut it quite close)

30 day Kpop Challenge – Day 6: hmmm does this actually count?? Oops…

Day 6: Your favourite k-pop song from your favourite girl group 

Hello chubby bunnies! (I know, how cheesy~)

So, for my favourite song from f(x)…I do realise that it’s kind-of cheating because there are only 3 members involved in the song, and it also is in collaboration with another singer from another group. But, it still counts, right?

MYNAME(마이네임)’s “Day By Day” is an awesome comeback MV, but has become famous for an entirely different reason.

Hello peoples! This is obviously a very delayed review however, I was too distracted with uni essays (one is still due on Friday *sigh*) to be able to post this. This MV is SO WORTH talking about, and I felt absolutely guilty from not being able to review it at all. So, here it is!

Yummy! SO SEXY!

Yummy! SO SEXY!
