Feel Korea and London Korean Festival 2017 were two separate events. The latter was free for all visitors to introduce Korean culture and the day ticket that was mentioned to those who purchased the Feel Korea concert tickets was not needed in the end.

London was the final stop on Block B's European tour. Sadly P.O wasn't able to attend due to health issues. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

So what of Block B then? Did they dazzle BBCs?** It was my first time seeing them live and coming as a slight outsider who didn't know the group too well I wasn't sure what to expect...

Happy New Year 2017. Korean pop rock band DAY6 apparently have some exciting things up coming for this year to make Sundays look forward to new music each month.

A new song will be released on the 6th of each month along with special performances by each member from February till June. Cool right?

They start January with two songs "I Wait" (title) and "Goodbye Winter."

Quite a few things to mention that didn't make the cut in the quick recap.

I went to MYNAME's concert in Angel on 10 September and it was quite a treat. I definitely got better photos and fancams than my last Kpop concert at the same venue but I also felt more relaxed this time.

So I went to see HISTORY in London on 21st February 2016.

Trying not to rant, trying not to rant ;A;

what am I to you )
There were a few.

okay )
Lost mutuals, cutting ties, losing trust in society...but there was music that still reached out to me. Leggo.

When your initial feeling of caution before reading an article somehow pays off.

In response to this interview with Paper Magazine. Omona already covered it and responded massively in the two posts surrounding it but more feedback started flying in when NetizenBuzz posted an article on her interview.

NGL but the Topp Dogg showcase in the first week of September is tempting. I am not a hardcore ToppKlass but some of their tunes are really good. Arario and Follow Me are catchy. Plus the group photo and hi touch omfg. It costs quite a bit but what chance do I have of ever achieving fangirl success?

It's also down to the fact I'm so poor. Not just from spending on new technology that had to replace the old goods...even travel and food. My preorders for K and J-music merchandise contribute too.

With all this real life shit happening it's dampened my mentality to a dark place that I have to sacrifice the things I care about. 防弹 when will it be our time?
I wasn't planning on going because I have sworn off gigs due to arseholes in fandom but tickets were still on sale so I just went, even though I don't know the group well enough to be considered a 'stan'.

I generally like both.

don't read the elitism from both sides and don't read the h8ers who are against the genres

I started with oldies Jpop then gradually moved to Jrock and Kpop along with inklings of Korean rock. It depends by the level of infectiousness you are aiming for. But lately the K has been calling out to me. I think it partly knows how to target an international audience (mostly on this side). But both J and K have their way of easing their way to music listeners. I think K is easier to reach out to the urban music fans whereas like with Jrock and Jpop the indie is slightly underground but has its own popularity scale and is probably too 'out there' for an average person...otoh Kpop is the same.

You just have to know what your chill is and respect what others listen to. None of this elitist bullshit on who cannot sing/compose/dance/play instruments etc etc. What you may hate i.e anything popular may somehow have helped somebody. You get help from the weirdest places (I know I did).

If I didn't go back to the K side after numerous divorces with the Hallyu, I wouldn't have gotten into the EXO!OT12 family and I wouldn't have gotten that epiphany China Line triggered two years ago. While treading on Korean music lightly after leaving Jrock fandom I went through a few artists but wasn't massively hardcore to the point of splashing my cash on them. X Japan made me do that back in the day and while they've gone through ups and downs their music still speaks to me. The current K music on my music collection is Bangtan Sonyeondan and EXO (yes they've been through shit and back and still getting shit on but I do keep my ears and eyes on them - or try to). I also miss B.A.P. BIGBANG we had a thing, Super Junior we had a little thing but I'm leaving them for various reasons. Thanks for the music from a few months although we're done.
