That Time I Met Super Junior’s Donghae

Happy Super Junior comeback day, everybody!  “One More Time (Otra Vez)” has been on repeat all day in this household, to absolutely no one’s surprise. The timing of this post is actually a happy coincidence, but I’m just going to pretend like I’m super organized and planned this all along. Procrastination for the win SoContinue reading “That Time I Met Super Junior’s Donghae”

A First-Timer At KCON New York (Part Three): Sunday’s Concert

KCON’s Day 1 concert was amazing, but Day 2 ended up being more memorable for me in the long run. I always laugh when I look back at my phone videos, because there is a HUGE difference between my reactions on both nights.  On the first day, I was so starstruck by seeing K-pop idolsContinue reading “A First-Timer At KCON New York (Part Three): Sunday’s Concert”

A First-Timer at KCON New York (Part Two): Saturday’s Concert

In the years since I’ve discovered K-pop, I’ve been lucky to attend a fair amount of concerts.  They’re usually on the smaller side in terms of venues (the downside of being a Western fan), and I’ve always been impressed by how the fans’ excitement makes everything seem so much bigger. But there’s nothing quite likeContinue reading “A First-Timer at KCON New York (Part Two): Saturday’s Concert”

A First-Timer at KCON New York (Part One): The Convention

At this point, KCON New York happened a full month ago… yet I still find myself thinking about it every day. There’s so much to share that I’m making several posts, but I think covering the convention is a good place to start! This was the first time I’ve been to such a large scaleContinue reading “A First-Timer at KCON New York (Part One): The Convention”

That Time I Went to See SF9: Be My Fantasy in Boston

Being a Western K-pop fan can be frustrating if you want to go to concerts.  Though more and more groups are embarking on world tours, usually “world” really just means “Asia and a select few other countries.”  There’s an intense debate among international fans over which continent is truly the “K-pop desert,” but let’s face it:Continue reading “That Time I Went to See SF9: Be My Fantasy in Boston”

That Time I Went to See K.A.R.D.: Wild Tour in London 2017

I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I went to see K.A.R.D.! It seriously only feels like it was a few days ago.  Getting to see one K-Pop group this summer was already pretty lucky. But when K.A.R.D. announced a Europe tour, I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist. Literally the morningContinue reading “That Time I Went to See K.A.R.D.: Wild Tour in London 2017”

That Time I Went to see Monsta X: Beautiful Tour in Paris 2017

I can’t believe it’s already been two weeks since Monsta X was here! I’m usually not much of a concert goer, but I’m pretty flexible when it comes to K-pop groups.  They don’t often come to Paris and they never come to Boston, so I gotta see my faves when I can.  And Monsta XContinue reading “That Time I Went to see Monsta X: Beautiful Tour in Paris 2017”
