Hey my Pannies how are you guys doing, so far so good? I am actually really exited to be finally posting this. As many kpop fans know EYK finally came to Europe, yuppp they had an Europe tour planned and off course I had to attend this event. The image below is the EU tour poster, Spudgy & Meemersss!! ❤
Hey my lovely pannies,
Here’s another blogpost on a korean drama!! The drama is named ”King’s Family” and exists out of 50 episodes. I watch this drama on the KBS youtube channel, you can check it out I’ll put a link below.
Last Sunday I literally had nothing to do, finished my HW and had no plans at all so I stayed home and was just searching on the web and watching youtube vids. I am subscribed to the KBS channel and saw this drama passing by a few times then at that time I just decided to watch it. I am so glad I did though because this drama could actually be realistic. The storyline looks so unreal to me because I’ve never experienced this but this actually also happens in real-life even though I have never seen this before.
Watching this drama makes me so stressful and so emotional that I actually dislike/hate some characters. An example would be the mother ”Lee Ang Geum” she says whatever she wants to to whoever she wants to. I don’t like the character because of her outspoken mind and that she’s not even reasonable but this proves that the person playing it is actually a good actress that I give to her.
Jang Yong as Wang Bong (Father)
Kim Hae Sook as Lee Ang Geum (Mother)
Oh Hyun Kyung as Wang Soo Bak (1st Daughter)
Lee Tae Ran as Wang Ho Bak (2nd Daughter)
Lee Yoon Ji as Wang Gwang Bak (3rd Daughter)
Moon Ga Young as Wang Hae Bak (4th Daughter)
Choi Dae Chul as Wang Don (uncle)
Choi Won Hong as Wang Tae Bak (The Only Son)
Lee Bo Hee as Park Sal Ra (Se Dal’s mother)
Kang Ye Bin as Heo Young Dal (Se Dal’s sister)
Lee Tae Woo as Heo Shin Thong
Hong Hyun Taek as Heo Bang Thong
Lee Byung Joon as Choi Tae Se (Sang Nam’s father)
Kim Hee Jung as Oh Soon Jung
Yoon Song Yi as Goo Mi Ho
A recap till episode 8:
Soo Bak and her husband Go Minjung were a wealthy family but because of wrong investments he lost all of his earnings and possessions. Soo Bak was raised as a princess as her mother says and haven’t done any work her entire life that’s also why she married a rich husband at the time. After losing everything they had to move as well to a smaller place, a basement with rats etc. Soo Bak is a spoiled brat. Minjung is also going crazy because he has to deliver everything on his own, rice, clothes etc. His mom past away last year and it was very hard for him and his dad. It was his mother in laws birthday but also his moms memorial but he had to go to the birthday and was late for the memorial, I really feel for him.
Ho Bak and her husband Heo Se Dal are quite pore. Ho Bak struggled for over more than 15 years to save all her earnings when her husband was just sitting at home doing nothing. This just changed recently (episode 8) because Ho Bok found a job for him but he quit because of the mean manager. Lee Ang Geum, Ho Boks mom treated Soo Bak the oldest daughter as a princess but the second daughter Ho Bak was treated very porely, it almost seemed like she wasn’t her own and hates her. Ho Bak worked for more then 15 years to save up and give her children a better life/education. She bought a house with a loan but her mom was so mad because she didn’t loan the money to her older sister. Not only does her own mom nags Ho Bak but also her mother in law. Ho Bak is the victim in this drama because she has hates coming from every side of her. Her mom, her sister, her mother in law and her sister in law.
Then we have the third daughter, Wang Gwang Bak. At the time she is the most lucky one. In every drama there’s a love story going on and in this case it’s between Gwang Bak and Choi Sang Nam. Their story is soso cute though. Sang Nam is actually pleying Gwang Bak’s mind with dating another girl but his interests lays towards her. CUTE CUTE CUTE, 2 MUCH CUTENESS!!
The fourth daughter with the headphones on all the time we don’t know much yet, she’s still a bit of a mystery so we have to look out for that.
Wang Tae Bak the youngest son is quite a funny guy. For the ones who does not remember that boy he was the little boy in Playful Kiss with Kim Hyun Joon. He still got it though, funny, cute but grown up!
This is basically the story till now so join me in watching this unreal but real drama and let’s discuss this ! If the audience grown maybe we can start a google hangout.
Ps. here’s a link to the trailer + episodes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXPzKpw8-h8&list=PLMf7VY8La5RGT0XaOoJ0cVcsfgzphPFVX
Hey my lovely pannies,
Okey okey I know I’m not posting frequently enough but now that I’m back from vaca. and summer is almost over again I will be posting more frequently, PROMISE! xx
As you guys see in the title above this blogpost will all be based on kpop. I know that everyone has its own taste off music and personally kpop is one of the genres I listen to.
Kpop stands for Korean pop music but nowadays we can devide Kpop in different genres as well because it’s not only pop music anymore. When people that are unfamiliar with kpop they would think that kpop is korean music but even though korean music is also devided in different genres such as indie, R&B, soul etc.
Personally I got me introduced to kpop by an old friend of mine. Four/Five years ago I got this video sent to me with 4 girls in it. I thought it was funny that all of them had the same hair colour and all four of them got bangs as well. Well I watch the video and I got totally interested in them which at this moment I searched for more videos but as long as I searched I could only find 2 MV’s. As unfamiliar I was with kpop I did found out that, that song was their debut song/MV. Can you guys guess who it is already…??
YES, these precious and wonderful girls who started with a boyish concept and ended up very feminine and elegant. I know for sure that a lot of Blackjacks agree with me. These four ladies (Minzy was still a girl because she was still a minor) captured lots of hearts with their unique concept which was not yet seen before and nowadays they are still doing a pretty good job.
To be honest I’m quite happy to say that, yes I’m familiar with kpop and yes I learned a lot trough their music, culture and the media, how different they react compared to the Western culture and what they concentrate on.
Well as kpop is growing these few years the Korean culture is also getting lots of attention as well. We have SNSD on the ‘‘David Letterman’’ show, this year we got Psy – Gangnamstyle what was a huge hit!
As kpop is getting even bigger and more well known, companies will put new faces out and for me personally it’s getting more exiting but also rediculous.
Oke, I’m a 90’s baby and got introduced to kpop in ’08 meaning that I’ve been around pretty while. I’m not saying I’m an expert or whatever but I am quite familier within this group.
I also know that these boys and girls work very hard to win that spot to be in a certain group or so (some train more then 5 years to be put in a group and some even 8~10 years) but having such large group with 12+ members is going quite far esp. nowadays.
It’s not that I don’t like it absolutely not, I’m even happy for them because you never know ‘‘the behind the scene story’’ of each of the members but one thing what I noticed it that end 2012 and this year 2013 there are A LOT of rookie groups that’s what I find ridiculous. No not 20 groups but there might be more than 30+ rookie groups out this year. I have no idea if they were trained well and if they will make it and whatever but I think it’s too much to put out so many groups within one year. This also means that the competition grew even bigger and we don’t even know what will happen. Some of the groups we heard only once and never appear again, how is this necessary…??
Also if a well known company puts out a new group this means that they need to concentrate on this certain group more then others meaning that the groups who were already out and already made a statement will be put on pause for at least a year or more. This is not fun for the fans nor for them because the fans want to see them even more and for the artists they might have to get used again to go on stage and perform.
Here are some ‘‘rookies’’ who grabbed my attention (in no specific order)!:
Kim Bo Ah, Boa. She’s part of the group Spica and trained together with IU. She totally has a wonderful voice which each singer should be jealous of so putting her in a group… I think the company made a mistake but well yeah…
B.A.P., Best Absolute Perfect. The shot-term might sound very unique and cool but the meaning behind it is just soso. Despite their name THEY CAN PERFORM and CAPTURE THE HEARTS OF MANY MANY GIRLS!! BABYYY…..
Amy Lee, Ailee. From a youtube singer to a very popular korean solo artist. She has captured the hearts of many people with her amazing cover of Halo ~ Beyoncè and her first album heaven and now even a second album!
D-Unit, Jeon Woo Ram/Ram, Jung Yoo Jin/Ujin, Kwak Soo Jin/Zin, Byeon Seung Mi/JNey. A rookie group which was formed last year and back then it existed out of three members only but they added a new member. Not sure anymore but they would change members frequently or something like that. Also Ram is the sis. of T-ara Boram.
Fiestar: Cao Lu, Yezi, Cheska, Jei, Hyemi, Linzy. Very popular from the start and in the same company as IU. They even filmed a MV with IU and I totally luved the sound and how cute the vid. was but not overly cute!
Well this blogpost need to come to an end. I can ramble on for hours if it’s about music/kpop but at a certain point we need to stop. I hope you guys will enjoy this overly kpop blogpost and share it with your friends!! Also comment below who you luvv in the kpop world and what your opinion is about Korean pop!
Much Luvv to the pannies & kpop lovers! (^x^)
