Meet My First Bias EVER: Tegoshi Yuya

Tegoshi Yuya was the person who dragged me into Jpop, which lead to Kpop, which lead to the mess of a person I am now.

He will always be my favorite voice in Jpop ever, and is still such a great person. I would probably freak out more while meeting HIM than any of my biases...

That's right, before Kpop, before Hakyeon, this was the special human in my life.

Tegoshi is a member of the Johnny's Entertainment group NEWS and stole my heart from day one.

I knew nothing about Jpop but seeing one glimpse of him drew me into this insane world.

News - Hoshi Wo Mezashite

He also was in a sub group called Tegomasu which was him and Masu :) Please enjoy his stunning voice and give them lots of love~

He's also a great actor but that deserves a whole 'nother card!

Teogmasu - Kaerimichi No Love Song

Tegoshi - Ai Nante

TRUE LOVE NEVER DIES.

How many Kpop fans are Jpop fans too?!

Let me know if you'd like to be tagged in any Jpop cards :D

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?
Unique Tips on How to Find Your Soulmate
Sharing your life with someone requires the right person and the right circumstances. The reality is that finding that special person in your life is not always easy, especially when you are searching, it can feel like a painstaking and tedious process. While there are no magical solutions to finding that special someone if you want to improve your odds of finding that right person, here are a few unique tips that are sure to help. Try Matchmaking If you are willing to have your friends set you up with someone, it may be time to try out a professional service. Even if you are feeling uncertain about professional services, trying matchmaking services can harness the power of amorous experts and tap into romantic reserves that you would never have access to otherwise. Relying on their professional opinions and expertise can give you the jumpstart that your love life needs. With professional guidance and suggestions, you can help get you onto a path to long-lasting romance. Let Your Friends Make Introductions Your friends are a great resource when it comes to finding someone special. Whether you are meeting during a group get-together or being set up with someone they know, utilizing your existing relationships can be immensely helpful. Because of your unique and special relationship with your friends, that bond and their knowledge of you can be a wonderful tool in finding someone you can connect with. Dive Into the Online Dating Pool In todayโ€™s day and age, online dating has become an everyday practice for young suitors. Regardless of what type of connection you are searching for, there is likely a dating service and platform out there for you. While you can sign up for every platform available to you, it is more important to understand how to set up a dating profile than it is overexposure. Instead of trying to balance multiple platforms at once, make a concerted and clear effort with a few options that can convey the message you want and attract the types of love interests that you are looking for. Try Something New There is nothing wrong with old-fashioned in-person connections when you are searching for a love connection. Whether you sign up for a cooking, fitness or writing workshop, you may be surprised at the type of connection you can make when trying something new. You never know if you will make a friend over a shared experience or find the love of your life. What you will know is that you bonded over this shared experience and were able to connect over something new and exciting. Say Yes to Possibilities It can be easy to decline invitations or opportunities out of fear or apathy. If you are someone who frequently turns down new opportunities, you may be missing out on the chance to find your special person. You never know where you may meet your soulmate, and saying yes to possibilities, experiences and adventures can open you up to the opportunity to meet them. Next time, instead of politely declining and sticking to your normal routine, say yes and see what life has in store for you. If nothing else, you will have had a fun, exhilarating time that pushed you outside of your comfort zone. Donโ€™t Forget to Work on Yourself What many people forget about when searching for love is that a couple is a pair of people. Each being an individual who has their own wants and needs and is embarking on their journey. If you want to find your soulmate, you need to be ready for love and healthy relationships. Take some time to determine what you want out of a relationship, time to understand who you are and the big stuff matters. The reality is that relationships take reflection, energy and work if they are going to work in the long haul. Finding your soulmate is not always the easiest process. This person often does not fall into your lap at the most opportune moment; however, if you are searching for love, these tips can help you in your quest for your next love connection.
