Delayed Reaction: “Deja Vu” by ATEEZ

As most of you already know, things are rather busy for me lately. There are lots of big changes happening, and I haven’t had time to write reactions for three months (cry). Normally, I’d just cut my losses and start over in the new year… but there are so many fall comebacks that I really enjoyed and want to talk about. Plus my perfectionism demands that I finish what I started. So I’ve created a counterpart to my “Knee Jerk Reaction” column, which I’m calling the “Delayed Reaction.” There’s not a lot of difference between the two in format, but a “Delayed Reaction” is notably not a first impressions post. I’ve already heard and seen everything – probably multiple times – and I’ve had some time to ruminate and form more solid opinions. From now on, I’ll be using this column for any reaction that comes out well after promotions for a release are over. And first up is ATEEZ – a truly delayed reaction, because they’ve made a whole other comeback in the time it took me to write this.

K-Pop Starter Kit: 21 Groups to Know in 2021

One of the wonderful things about K-pop is that there’s genuinely so much to discover. Dozens of groups (and soloists) are regularly releasing and promoting new music, with more joining the ranks each year. When you’re a brand new fan, the sheer amount of songs and albums out there can definitely be overwhelming. And as both a K-pop blogger and a multifan, I always have tons of artists I want to recommend to newcomers. So for the next part of this column, I’ll be introducing numerous K-pop groups through several super long themed list articles. This post kicks things off with some of the industry’s “big names” – aka the ones who are well-known and/or currently on the rise.

K-Pop Starter Kit: Some Column and General Blog Updates

Happy Halloween, everyone! Long time no talk! I’m sure some of you have noticed I’ve only done news recaps for about a month or so, and that a lot of posts that I said I was working on have been massively delayed. A lot of this is because the latest series for my K-pop Starter Kit took much longer than I expected. (When will I ever learn) The list articles that I initially planned used up a lot of time with all the research, formatting, and editing – you’ll see why when the first one goes up tomorrow. So since I’ve been focusing on those posts, it’s kind of created a chain reaction where I’ve gotten behind on everything else.
