New (School) Year, New Plans

Hello, all! It’s been a long time (again). I’m sorry I had to step away from the blog for a while, but there’ve been a lot of major life changes since my last personal post. I can finally tell you the big reason I haven’t been around lately – I found a new workplace, and I’ve moved to Seoul! I’ve actually been here for a little bit, but I was sitting on the news since there were a TON of unforeseen complications to moving across the country. So, a lot of my time and energy has been spent on adjusting to the new job and handling random life admin situations as they come up. But everything has finally been resolved, and I’m ready to make the official announcement!

Delayed Reaction: “Sticker” by NCT 127

I’m currently finishing up the rest of my 2021 reaction posts, and “Sticker” is definitely a comeback that I want to talk about. While I’ve always considered myself a multifan, I often name NCT 127 as my “ultimate” K-pop group. And if I’m talking purely about the music, then they’re absolutely #1 on my list. So needless to say, their comebacks are always a thrilling time for me. And since NCT exploded in popularity over the past year or so, I was especially excited to see how a new single would boost their success. I think there were a lot of expectations for NCT 127’s return, especially after NCT Dream did so well, but they definitively proved they were more than up to the challenge. In my opinion, “Sticker” was one of their most solid comebacks yet – and it’s a serious contender for my favorite release of the year.

Plans for 2022

Happy New Year, everyone!!! (A few days late, but what else is new ^^”’) This past weekend was officially the start of my winter break, so I spent New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day curled up under my blankets watching K-pop events like the MBC Gayo and the big SM concert. Very low-key, but very much needed after a whirlwind end to the semester. I hope you all had a great New Year’s too!
