No, it’s not a joke either, despite all the people doing double-takes when we all saw her name and her now-husband’s name, comedian Yamasato Ryota (山里亮太), trending worldwide on Twitter.
After apparently two-months of dating, Yu Aoi and Ryota Yamasato submitted their marriage registration on June 3rd. They were apparently introduce by Yu-chan’s Hula Girls co-star Shizuyo Yamazaki (山崎静代), who is also Yamasato’s comedic partner in their comedy duo .
I never considered myself a Blackjack or bought a lightstick before I got my Moobong, but I had been a Kpop listener for a decade. 2NE1 and Big Bang were on constant rotation on my playlist, and Big Bang popped my Kpop concert cherry. And honestly, Bom’s Spring [MV] couldn’t have come at a better timing. It’s been on constant repeat since it came out.
I’ve also been enjoying Bom’s music show performances. and was astonished with her MR Removed clip. Her press has also been so emotional, but this short interview given to Melon got my feelings up in a bunch. Not only because she shades saying Melon is the only chart she didn’t top, LOL or that she still loves corn despite not eating it as much anymore because she’s trying to lose weight. LOL, imagine a field of corn and radishes at a performance~
But then she gets to 2NE1, and Sandara, and how YG felt so much like family that she didn’t see herself continuing her career after that. And how Teddy was the first person she thought of when showing Spring for the first time. It’s been a roller-coaster of emotions, I’m glad she’s managed to pull herself together to a point where she is happy making music again and seeing her fans. Bless her.
I haven’t been much of an active moomoo lately coz somebody gotta adult, but I got to watch Hwasa’s meaningful 2nd Win accompanied by her members, which was the most satisfying experience in probably all year watching Mamamoo go through their 4 Seasons 4 Colors project.
After years  of data; Yes, it’s Mamamoo’s fault. The positives, though, I have registered 31 more hours than I did last year with an extra 18 movies. My movie-watching in general got better because I managed to watch 132 brand new 2018 movies (compared to the 103 in 2017).
This year, I didn’t make any particular movie goal. Though, some of my favorite movies this year were Indian, as reflected by my latest highest ratings. No one has been able to surpass my love for Rene Liu’s Us and Them so far, though. It’s been an incredible year for… not movies made by Netflix, but they have expanded their distribution library enough to make it interesting.
My goal for this year is to increase the titles I watch; seeing that from this interview at Film Independent, the guy from IMDb states that “You should feel disappointed if you haven’t seen 700 movies in a particular year [laughs].” O.o I don’t feel half bad about registering half the amount of movies the guy from IMDb watches. Just saying.
I thought I might have bought my last Shiina bluray last time, but I guess not? It does look like I might add Shiina Ringo & The Others Dwell: The Air Pocket Zone (椎名林檎と彼奴等の居る真空地帯) [HMV JP] to my collection because I cannot resist.
