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.

What a wonderful way to start promotion cycle for White Wind‘s title gogobebe, which I gotta admit have been replaying more in this M2 Relay Dance version, because it reminds me so much of their Girl Crush video mixed with their Dingo Music performance of Um Oh Ah Yeh. Bless these children.

Also, it may be historic seeing an active girl group member winning the day their group is making a comeback. Mam-moo only.

I’m shook. For some reason SBS Catch has just uploaded the September 2017 episode of Law of the Jungle (정글의 법칙) featuring GFriend’s Yerin. I wasn’t expecting to sit through the whole episode, but I was really impressed with Yerin’s survival skills.

I was even more surprised to see how she handled the Monitor lizard, killing it, skinning it, and preparing it. I can’t relate. LOL She reminded me of Savage Yejin on Family Outing.

Ah, good times.

Mad respect. Yerin, fighting! Yeoja Chingu, fighting! YeoMaChinMoo, fighting!

I’m ready to vote! I received the most digital screeners this year so far, so it’s been easier (and it’s made it lazy-proof) to sit through dozens of screeners. Plus, Netflix has a lot of the nominated movies readily available too. This year is possibly my best award season ballot in my history of keeping up with ballots. lol

It’s not only my Spirit Awards ballot~

I also have a pretty complete Oscar ballot. lol

It’s unbelievable how quickly the year has come to an end. And though there’s still so many hours of un-watched films, we must all begin sharing our End of the Year lists.

As per tradition, here’s my 2018 music highlights. As Jocelle pointed out, might change drastically midway through 2019. LOL Remember when Su Yunying released an album on December 31st? Chinese people got no chills.

Happy listening!
