So I was on Instagram…

And I was just looking through all of YiFan’s pictures and I saw that he was only following 23 people and I decided to look at those people. Out of those 23 people, he’s following all of the EXO members that have Instagram accounts. There’s just something so very real about that and I guess I’m just in my feelings a tad bit.

K-pop Fans Vs. K-pop Fans

Let’s just love~

Why is it that even though k-pop fans tend to love meeting other k-pop fans in person, there’s so much rivalry online between netizens? Every time I read comments on k-pop sites or blogs, I find that fans fight over basically anything. Think about it this way. K-pop may be spreading but the fan population still has a way to go before becoming really popular. As for now, k-pop fans should still be banding together in unity with the goal of spreading k-pop even more! Sensitive topics naturally arise sometimes and hence lead to disagreements, but bickering over petty issues is just unnecessary.

For example, I find that many k-pop fans love to argue about which band is the best. I’ve done this myself in the past and I’ve come to the realization that it doesn’t even make sense. Which band is the best is up to the person —…

KIY: Kpop Necklace DIY

I’ve been on a roll with DIYs lately and just decided to do another fairly easy one.

Materials:

  • Coin/Badge
  • Clear Tape
  • Scissors
  • Picture
  • Glue/Mod Podge
  • Hot Glue Gun/E6000
  • Necklace Chain
  • Jump Rings (one for each pendant)

Directions:

  1. Find a pin or a coin that you wouldn’t miss. Measure it and print out a picture that would fit on it. (If your picture is too big, bend it so it shows up like how you would like your pendant to look.)
  2.  Get out some type of glue (a light glue like stick glue or mod podge) and glue your picture in place.
  3. Let your pendant dry if you have to, and then cut off any excess paper that hangs off of your pendant.
  4. Get some clear tape, and put it over your pendant. This will make it shiny and give it extra protection from things like water and also keep your picture in place.
  5. Cut off excess tape, but leave a small amount around the rim.
  6. Bend back the tape you left behind, this will help keep your picture in place.
  7. Get out some jump rings. If they’re big, leave them be, but if they’re small open them up.
  8. Using a glue gun or E6000/Goop (I recommend E6000/Goop), put some glue on the top back of your pendant and glue on your jump ring. If you opened yours, make sure the open part is facing up.
  9. Get out your chain. Slide the chain into the jump ring to attach the pendant.
  10. Now, close your jump ring if you have to. (In the video I used a nail cutter, but you could break a nail cutter doing that fyi.)

blackface pic for blog

We’ve been through it before, but we hoped it wouldn’t rear its ugly head again. While its unfortunate that it has returned, we’re just happy that we’re here to address it this time while its still a hot topic. Maybe, just maybe, this will be the first and last time we ever have to confront this. What are we talking about? Blackface in Korea.

Just recently, MC Jun Hyun Moo thought it would be a great idea to dress up as Sam Otswiri (or better known as, Sam Ochiri)in Blackface if his show hits 3% in viewer ratings. Although it was only a suggestion that has not yet been put into action, it has caused a disturbance amongst netizens as to whether it is acceptable, or rather why it really isn’t. While some blame the journalist’s prejudicial view on the premise that this act is racist, we can confidently say…
