My Unofficial Official Idol Best Friends
So as Kpop fans, we all know it's healthy to be crazy and delusional with a healthy dose of keep your distance (and maybe a bit of sanity). So excuse my unreasonable rationality on this. (Or maybe it is rational). #healthyimagination Since I have been k-popping it for some time now, I have developed this group of idols I swear I would be best friends with based on their and mines (and my current friends) personality. I'm mean with reason, I have to at least measure the friends I hang out with now to see if I could hang out with these idols? Right? Wrong? Who cares..... So here is my list of best friends starting with my closest one. FYI the stories of our friendship might be a little bit long and totally made up ^^...... First up we have the ever so adorable Baro. Yes B1A4 Baro would be my best friend. In fact, out of all the idols I know (I haven't met any yet) Baro is the one I am closest to and I have known the longest. We can chill talking about music, movies, games, books, and literally anything that comes to mind. We will always be there for each other since nothing is more important to us than our friendship. And all though we love each other, we are reasonable enough to not drop anything we're doing to go running to each other. We will check up on each other to see how the other is doing if we couldn't hang out for awhile. Especially after things like a break up or a relative passing or even issues with our careers creating an identity crisis for us. Visitations are always in order and having/owning a key to the others house/apartment is a requirement. Long story short, I will always be there for him. And he will always be there for me. Seeing that we are both September babies with our birthdays just 5 days apart (Sunwoo on September 5 and me on September 10), we work well together when we set off on any type of project. Of course we would bicker like real siblings, and drive each other crazy. I mean who wouldn't if they have known each other for as long as we have. To top it all off we are super supportive and critical of anything the other does. An example is if either one of us wanted to go down a different career path and wanted to go to school for it. We would weigh out the pros and cons and then we would check the reasoning for said friend embarking in a new direction. (FYI: following the dreams of your idol is not the same as following your own dreams, unless you're the lead female in Playful Kiss starring Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So Min then it is okay because he is your dream and you must follow your dream to the end of the earth and then get married to said dream. Good luck with that!!! ^^) So basically us Virgos will stick together through thick and thin and be the bestest friends forever! Next up on my friends list is the fiercest and most misunderstood (well, one of the most misunderstood) females I know. It's the one and only HYUNA!!!!! For years now my poor friend has been over-sexualized and thus criticized for her over flowing sex appeal. But to be honest, Hyuna is a really sweet girl that loves to party and have fun. At the age of 22/23 we still want to be young and milk our youthful features and figures for all it's worth. Being normal and conservative is overrated and unnecessary. And to be honest, Hyuna is very outspoken (with reason) of what she wants done. I will admit that Hyuna is more attractive than I am. ~(>^~^<)~ But that's cool. Together the two of us have amazing one-on-one girl time. Chatting over our favorite foods and downing all the sweets that we can get. Talking about whose the hottest idol and whether or not we like him and then being upset if the other doesn't agree with us. Of course, we dish details about current boyfriends or crushes and we size up whether the guy is worth the trouble. We spend time window shopping and eventually buying things for each other and ourselves. Since I'm not too big on 'ink' (tattoos), we agree that a charm bracelet unique to the two of us is what we need to identify our friendship to the world. Since Hyuna is older than me (by only 3 months), she gets to obnoxiously play the older sister and act like she knows more than me and is more mature than I am. But to be honest we're both mentally still kids. #kidsatheart #youngforever Over all, Hyuna and I share a unique bond that cannot be shared simply through words but felt whenever we are spotted together. Forever my best friend. Forever my ride-or-die. Forever my twin. Next up on my list of friends is someone you wouldn't have expected. I haven't known her for long but ever since we met, we clicked and that was that. My Goofy/Derpy twin, Hani. As one of her closest friends, I get the privilege to call Hani by her real name Hee Yeon. Together Hee Yeon and I are like two peas in a pod. We're either smart together or we're dumb together. And on the off chance that one of us understands something the other doesn't, we generously explain it. But our slowness is our charm and a charm only we allow ourselves to laugh about. We honestly don't mean to be slow, we just don't catch on to things sometimes. We don't always have slow moments though, there are times we are super into a conversation and know everything we can about it. These said conversations are not always about idols but mainly about things that really interest us; starvation, animal cruelty, third world problems, money and taxes, and ever so often we throw in a good mystery book or drama because we just love our mystery. Over all, you can catch Hee Yeon and I throwing weird faces at each other while taking selfies or wearing matching outfits to show case our unique friendship. Next up is someone everyone needs....... Everyone needs at least one obnoxious friend that you want to beat up but still love and will defend because you know that they are good person. Well that person for me is Ji Hoo. Yup, none other than Block B Zico. This boy loves to mess with me and my love for owls. (I totally have an obsession with owls and have tons of owl jewelry). Every time I call his name (Ji Hoo), he starts echoing me with his own set of 'who who', sounding like an owl. /\(>_<)/\ *angryface* Clever and mean at the same time, Ji Hoo, is the special third inclusion to my Virgo club (starring Me, Sunwoo, and Ji Hoo of course). Ji Hoo always leaves me speechless with the lyrics he writes for his songs and then stunned at how annoying he can be. Same as with Sunwoo (Baro), I argue with this boy like a true sibling and defend him just them same. No one can talk bad about my brother but me (and well his older brother Taewoon of course). Unfortunately Ji Hoo and I get very heated in arguments and refuse to back down. We might spend days not talking to each other but I would eventually give in since I don't know how to keep a grudge (no seriously I don't). In the end, among us Virgos, Sunwoo, Ji Hoo, and I, we have formed our own little click and occasionally hang out together. Our own version of the Three Caballeros or the Three Musketeers. We're not exactly a rough bunch together but we know how to have our own type of fun. Finally my newest adorable and talented friend is Yoda....lol I mean Chanyeol. EXO Chanyeol is a relatively new friend for me but we work well together with our passion for music. The two of us often joke around that we should have known each other when we were young so that our relationship would have more stories to it. And it's true since we already act that way. My Yoda and I are always true to each other and ourselves and the best part of our friendship is our ear for music. Honestly if I were more inclined to when I was younger, I would be a talented pianist and guitarist by now. But even though I'm not I still listen to music faithfully and I can tell whether I like something or not and why. There is always something about the beat not matching the lyrics or the right words or phrase not being used when writing lyrics. And my Yoda confides these things to me among others he trust because he wants to me the best musician he can be. So these are my five. And now I am honestly wondering if any of you other Kpop fans have your own group of idols you want to be friends with. Give it some thought and if you want to, you should post your own story of what your relationship would be. I'm personally asking if @poojas, @PassTheSuga, @MattK95, @jiggzy19, and @aabxo would like to give this story-telling a shot. β€œIf you think anyone is sane you just don't know enough about them.” ― Christopher Moore, Practical Demonkeeping ^^V If you think I'm crazy then your just not sane enough --- @stevieq (Me) ^^V I do not own these photos γ… ~γ… 
BTS Fire and WTF Is Tropical House?
Alright y'all, we're going to talk about a topic that affects each and every one of us: TROPICAL HOUSE. It's a subgenre of house music that is influenced by instruments such as steel drums usually used in Jamaican, Cuban, etc music. It's been getting more and more popularity these days but I was still surprised to hear it in at BTS song! It is most noticeable in Rap Mon's part at 2:15. That awesome sound in the back? That's classic Tropical House music! Here are some more examples if you dig that sound: Jeremih - Don't Tell 'Em Thanks to @Lizzeh for reminding me about this awesome example!!!! Justin Bieber - Sorry & What Do You Mean Beibs made his comeback completely backed by this music. It sounds fresh, fun, and you CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO IT. Kygo - Stay Often referenced as the king of the rebirth of TropHouse, Kygo is your go-to DJ if you want nothing but Tropical House in your ears. Skrillex and Diplo - Where Are Ü Now This was the song that really brought the sound to mainstream recently. Those "dolphin sounds" or however you choose to describe it...yup, TropHouse. Fifth Harmony - Worth It & Work It's leaking into the girl group pop scene too with Fifth Harmony using an almost 8-bit take on Trop-Pop. Still groovy. Jamie XX - Loud Places And then we have Jamie XX that combines his smooth sleepy sounds from the XX with the catchy pop of Tropical House. Needless to say, it was love at first listen. Even though it has existed for a long time (and the influences that inspired existed looooooooooong before) I'm glad to hear more of it now in mainstream music! Enjoy!
Who is HIGHLIGHT???
Hey guys. So for a while now there has been talk about Highlight debuting. Most people have no idea who highlight is, how many members are in the group, their ages, what they look like etc. One things for certain............people have been passing on Legendary rookie group..........so you gotta wonder. How good is this group? What do they sound like? Do I know them?..................Well maybe.................possibly...............................ummmmmmmm YES! Do these five guys look familiar? Do you guys remember the band formerly known as Beast/B2St??? http://youtu.be/ZAzWT8mRoR0 http://youtu.be/8JQJ83aFNo8 http://youtu.be/9JWkOTkhpf4 https://youtu.be/PrKvv4o0Ofs ......oh yeah but there was like another right? A sixth member..............Yes there was. Jang Hyunseung. Also apart of the duo Troublemaker. -------------------------- QUICK RUN THROUGH Sadly that sixth member of Beast departed and the explanation we got was differences in music ideas or so. Shortly after this the contracts for all six Beast members and Cube expired. This gave way to other possibilities and the remaining members decided to leave Cube and start their own label. (Around Us) Jang Hyunseung decided to stay and do another contract with Cube. Now that the five had left there was still an issue with the Beast name. Cube had the rights to that name for more years meaning the boys could not promote under that name since they had left Cube. After intense thinking and talking back and forth with Cube the boys decided to give up on the Beast name for the moment and promote under a new name........dundundunduuuuun HIGHLIGHT was born. This name is a song title from the past album. Alrighty now to introduce you to each member of HIGHLIGHT. DO YOU KNOW THEM? Well here are the links for the cards that lead to each member.

How To Survive Your Very First KCON, Advice From A KCON Veteran
For K-Pop fans here in the United States, KCON is hands down the biggest event of the year. It's not only an opportunity to meet up with fellow fangirls (and fanboys!) and make new friends, but it's pretty much a huge Hallyu party, complete with K-Food vendors, celebrity panelists, and - of course - live performances from some of the hottest idols of the year! With KCON finally branching out and coming to BOTH coasts this year, that means a whole lot of you are probably heading out to KCON for the very first time! As a self-described 'veteran KCON-er' myself, I've decided to throw together a fun survival guide for first-timers complete with some exclusive photos of KCON from past years! Dress Comfortably! When you're at the convention, you're going to be doing a whole lot of walking around. Make sure that you're not only staying hydrated (keep some cash handy for water), but you're wearing comfortable shoes and have something to hold all of that K-Pop swag you're going to end up collecting throughout the day. (There's a LOT of cool giveaways, which means a LOT of stuff to be lugging around!) Get Ready To Dance All Day! KCON is full of plenty of opportunities to get your K-Pop dance on. Not only can you join in on a flash mob, but there are also special events throughout the convention where fans can teach and learn the choreography to all their favorite K-Pop songs! Be Prepared For Some Epic Cosplay! Cosplay isn't just for anime conventions anymore! KCON is PACKED with people dressed up as their favorite idols and music video concepts. In past years, I've seen fans arrive dressed as anyone from 'Bar Bar Bar'-era Crayon Pop to 'Doom Dada' T.O.P himself! Ask The Panelists Questions Some Crazy Questions! The celebrity panels are one of my favorite parts of KCON, and it's because you get the chance to play interviewer and ask people whatever they want! In fact, here are some things I found out just by getting to ask different KCON panelists weird questions: John Major, the songwriter behind EXO's 'Growl', has a pretty surprising favorite K-Pop song: 'Turn It Up' by T.O.P of BIGBANG. Lydia Paek might help choreograph and compose some of YG Entertainment's hottest singles, but she's also a licensed pharmacist. When Josh (AKA YouTube celebrity The Korean Englishman) sings karaoke with his friends, his go-to track is 'Supermagic' by Supreme Team. When you get to KCON, review the program, pick out panelists you'd be interested in meeting, and think about what weird questions you'd like them to answer. It's a lot of fun! Impress Your KCON Bias With Your Korean Skills! Fan meetings are probably the most exciting part for many of the fans attending KCON. Depending on what type of ticket you buy, you can get a chance to meet your favorite idols - you might even score yourself a hi-touch or autograph! If you're selected to attend a fan meeting, make sure to get there early, and in the meantime, practice what you're going to say when you finally get to meet them! (Even if you're not an expert at Korean, they'll really be touched that you tried your best.) Want to learn some Korean phrases? Check out @kpopandkimchi's How To Talk To Your Oppa collection. Attend The 'Danny From LA' Live Taping! Danny Im from MNET's 'Danny From LA' shoots a special KCON episode every year on the main outdoor stage, which means that even if you don't gain entrance to your favorite group's fan meeting, you can be in the audience for their on-stage interview! 'Danny From LA' loves bringing fans on stage to meet their favorite idols or participate in some sort of game, so who knows? Maybe you'll even get to be on TV! Show Up Early To The Pre-Show Red Carpet! A couple hours before the concert starts, select fans will be able to attend the pre-show red carpet event, where all of the artists on the evening's line-up will come out to be interviewed by the media, greet the fans, and pose for the cameras - including yours! If you're selected, make sure to get there as early as possible so you get a good view. (Shout-outs to the guy in the red hat here that kept blocking mine!) Go Crazy At The Concert! Once you get to the part we've ALL been waiting for, make sure to scream as loud and as often as you possibly can. All KCON attendees are usually given some sort of lightstick, so make sure to shake it back and forth to support all of your favorites. And DANCE! Dance by yourself, dance with your friends, heck - dance with some strangers! Being at a K-Pop show means being surrounded by people that are just as obsessed as you are. (Believe me, you won't run out of things to talk about.) And, that's it! That's all of the advice I'd give to all of you Vinglers attending KCON this year. I hope you have an amazing time and enjoyed this card!
