Why Don't Idol Groups Work In America?
In Japan and Korea, idols are a huge deal. The fandoms surrounding idols and idol groups are massive, with a ton of merch, lingo, events, etc surrounding the entertainers. So why isn't that happening in America? The UK tried it out with One Direction and we have a few girl groups like Fifth Harmony and Little Mix, but for the most part the classic pop group ensemble faded away in the early 2000s. Here are a few reasons why it might not work: I'm not saying either opinion is correct - just stating how the general public views celebrities in America vs Korea/Japan. I'm not an expert on either so please share your opinions as well! 1. The Concept of Being An Idol Sure, celebrities in the US know that they are role models, but do they really take this as their job?! In Japan and Korea, a single slip up can mean public humiliation (such as when an AKB48 member had a boyfriend - she had to shave her head as an apology) while in America celebrities insist on their personal rights to do whatever they want. In their opinion, just because you're a celebrity doesn't mean you aren't allowed a personal life. They should be able to be in the lime light but also have a lot of personal life that shouldn't be judged by the public, In Japan/Korea, every aspect of an entertainers life is analyzed and people know that is just part of the job. You must be a model citizen at all times and any bad behaviour (whether its on or off camera) is bad for your company, your career, and your fans. 2. Company Loyalty In America, we know the big companies like Warner, Sony, etc, but we rarely pay attention to what label each artist is on. And even if they're on the same label they don't really work together so its hard for fans to be loyal to one company. The closest I think we can get to that is waaay back with Motown Records or more recently the bands that came out on Fueled By Ramen. Smaller hip hop labels still keep this group style too! We could actually see the connection the artists had on those labels and could support the label as well as the artists. Now in Korea, we all know that companies are a big deal. YG Family, JYP, Cube, SM, etc. They do things together like concerts, Christmas songs, etc. We are able to anticipate the company's new project or collaboration. It's easier for the fans to get hyped over multiple groups at once. 3. Pre-Packaged In America, bands are usually put together by the band members. Whether they start in a garage or they put up flyers to find members, it is the band that forms first, then the label that signs them. In Korea and Japan however, we have a TON of trainees all hoping to be perfectly placed in a group. Think of the show Produce! Perfect example of prepackaging :) One Direction is an example of that happening where the boys were somewhat put together by a label, but musical and personality differences got in the way :/ 4. Training Idols train a LOT. Sure, in America entertainers practice, train, get vocal lessons, learn new instruments, get prepped for interviews etc but they are not forced to practice for 12 hours a day. Living in dorms without cell phones or internet, being forced to learn languages, dances, public speaking, etc - its totally normal in the idol world. Because of this, idols should be pretty prepared for anything. I'm not so sure American entertainers would be up for this style of training. Can you think of other reasons why the "idol" style of the music industry doesn't work in America?
K-Drama Kisses That Stole My Heart
So I wanted to do this game that was created by @kpopandkimchi because it looked fun!!! Here is my list of my favorite K-Drama kiss scenes!!! (Note: The pic above is from Fabulous Boys, the Taiwanese version of You're Beautiful.) 1. Playful Kiss (Korean Version) starring Jung So-min and Kim Hyun-joong The way he teases her about forgetting him is so cute. 2. Mischievous Kiss (Japanese Version) starring Honoka Miki and Yuki Kurukawa I love this one...... 3. Love Rain starring Jung Ha Na and Jang Keun-suk I fangirled so hard when I saw this scene. I must have replayed it at least a dozen times. 4. Coffee Prince starring Yoon Eun-hye and Gong Yoo Probably one of the sexiest kiss scenes I have seen yet..... 5. Bride Of The Century starring Yung Jin-sung and Lee Hung-gi One of the most sensual kiss scenes I have seen involving Hong-gi. 6. Princess Hours starring Yoon Eun-hye and Ju Ji-hoon Seeing two people coming to terms that they are absolutely in love with each other is enough to make anyone swoon. 7. Flower Boy Next Door starring Park Shin-hye and Yoon Shi-yoon I just love Park Shin-hye in this k-drama and this scene when he returns to her is so sweet. So there you have it. That is my list so far. It might change since I just started Orange Marmalade. Lol but tell me what ya think of these scenes?!?!

Remembrance Sulli (JinRi)
Many of you may know Sulli as one of the girls in f(x) or friends with Amber or even off some Drama's . She has always as been her own individual and tried to get through the tough patches on her own. She has dealt with so many comments and hate messages that vary in aspects. There is actually a show called "Night of Hate Comments" Sulli and 3 others Stars invite others in the business to talk about their experience with Cyber Bullying. One of the reasons I bring in this show is because with her background it was to help show she wasnt alone in receiving this treatment and able to share her experience and well as hear others who can relate. . . If You have seen the news then you know what has happened to this young vibrant girl. - ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~ This next bit may be a triggering and please be warned, this does have to do with a death. . ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ Monday Morning her manager could not get ahold of her so went to her apartment to check up on her. the Manager found her and called the police. Police are going to look further into it but at this time it was released there was a suicide note and that she had taken her life. Fam tag!

Extraordinary You (Korean Drama Recommendation)
Episodes: 32 (35 Minute Episodes) Genre: Friendship, Comedy, Romance, School, Fantasy Other Genre Tags (listed on MDL): High School, Student, Adapted from a Webtoon, Coming of Age, Unrequited Love, Love Triangle, Rich Female Lead, Multiple Mains (Characters), Youth Romance, Rainbow, Webtoon World, Idol Actor Rating: 15 + Where to Watch: Viki Status: Currently Airing - October 2nd-November 21st, 2019 Main Cast: Ro Woon, Kim Hye Yoon, Lee Jae Wook, Lee Na Eun, Kim Young Dae, Jung Gun Joo, Lee Tae Ri Notes/Warnings: -There is bullying going on but this is mainly a comedy, there are still some deep meaningful situations though. (I mean so far, there's only 4 episodes out so far...XD) Synopsis: What would you do if you found out that you were, in fact, a character in a comic? And an extra character on top of that? Change the course of the story, obviously! Eun Dan Oh is a 17-year-old high-school student from a wealthy family who suffers from a lifelong heart condition that inevitably means she will not live past her teenage years. However, when Dan Oh realizes she is experiencing longgaps in her memory as well, she comes into the unhappy inheritance of another fact in her life: she is a character in a Korean webtoon and all of her actions are predetermined by the artist who draws her. To make matters worse, she discovers she is only a supporting character in the cast. With her newfound understanding of the world she inhabits, she is determined to find true love in her own plot-line and circumvent the author’s plans for her character by utilizing the flashes of storyboard she alone is able to see. (Source: onehallyu, MDL) My Remarks: It's really good so far! If you liked the drama W you'd like this one most likely. They both have a similar concept. Except W had a serial killer in it...this one does not, or at least if it does it hasn't yet.
