Every time it gets near the awards, I get excited! You get to see all of your favs perform and receive the awards that they deserve for their hard work and dedication! Can you imagine which groups or solo artists is going to collaborate with each other at the MAMA this year? Man love those collabs! Well let's see the recap of 2015 MAMA! It was lit!

BTS and GOT7 Intro

Just re-watching this makes me get all geeked up again xD My favorite two groups together on the same stage. They looked so cool!!

Big Bang - Loser + Bae Bae + Bang Bang Bang

They slayed!

CL - Hello Bitches + 2NE1 - Fire & I am the best

CL and her backup dancers killed it! They sure did suprise us when all the members of 2ne1 was on stage together. I had goosebumps! I know everyone was so happy to see them together. It was lit!

BTS - RUN

My babies! Their performance was A1 of course. I fangirled so hard xD but us ARMY was upset because they only got to perform one song and everybody else performed more than one. Some people thought MAMA was being biased? I don't know, but it's cool, I was just grateful that Bangtan got to perform on stage, thats all it matter. Hopefully this year they will perform more than one song, who knows. Bts performed 'RUN' in a hotel with MPD. This was apart of MAMA. This was so cute!!

Seventeen - Mansae


(Special Stage)

They looked so adorable! Poor S-Coups tripped a little.. glad he was okay

EXO - Call me baby + Light Saber

EXO - Drop That

Man EXO went nuts! everybody was hype and so was I lol I was so amazed like wow EXO is amazing!

San E - Do it for fun

Omg San E had me dead the whole time!! lmbo!! He is just silly as ever. What was he wearing though? people was making fun of his outfit, saying that he looks like a janitor and a broom lol!!! His performance was dope as ever though, with his cute self. When he was rapping on the screen and then started making weird noises, I had second hand embarrassment for him lol . That's San E for you.

HyunA - Roll Deep + RED

Shinee - View

Monsta X and Seventeen Collab

F(x) - 4walls

If you didn't get a chance to wait MAMA 2015 or want to watch it over again, you can watch the full video on 》Dramafever 《& you can check out the winners for MAMA 2015 here Voting is very important. If you want your favs to win something this year, I suggest you go vote when the time comes. Because people be getting mad when their favs don't win a certain award or a certain group is getting most of the awards. Well be happy for them, don't hate. Anyway they can also tell if your cheating too. Like if you use multiple emails to sign up and vote, that's cheating lol. They only let you vote 3 ways, through the mwave website, Facebook, and Twitter. Use all 3.

Why I and most people still think MAMA 2014 was better!

Hmm let's see.. Everything just seemed perfect! Here's why

1.) The Fight of the century: BTS vs Block B!

This was the mostly exciting and lit battle ever! It was nice to see both groups battle it out! They both did awesome! You already know everybody's favorite part right? J-Hope's dance and Jimin ripping his shirt off! I just watched that over and died so many times all over again lol

2.) Girl's Day - Something + Ailee - Don't Touch Me + Girl's Day and Ailee collab - Ariana Grande - Problem cover

Both slayed in their performances and that collab though.. it was hot! It gives me goosebumps all over again lol that's like one of the most sexist collabs ever. They did that!! I saw BTS fanboy over Girl's Day lol definitely Jimin.

3.) GD and Taeyang/Big Bang -Good Boy & Fantastic Baby

4.) The New Age of EXO

5.) Winner -Empty + B.I & Bobby + Epik High - Happy Ending & Born Hater

and many more awesome and amazing performances from 2014 MAMA! Everything just seemed more better that year than at MAMA 2015.
Well! This is a long card, I'm sorry lol. If you made it this far, congrats! Thanks for taking the time to go through this card. Anyway, are you guys looking forward to MAMA 2016? Anyone traveling to go see see in person? or are you going to watch it on your phone or laptop? I'm going to watch it on my laptop like I usually do. Omg I stayed up till the crack of dawn to watch the whole MAMA 2014 and 2015 lol see what kpop can do to you? I'm crazy right? Who are you looking forward to see at MAMA? and who do you think is going to win artist of the year, album of the year, etc. Comment down below! *Photos, videos, and gif does not belong to KpopINT.

If BTS and EXO aren't on the Lineup im gonna seriously cry
This is the most entertaining post I've seen all day😍😍👍👍 I loved it. Just wondering are we able to see the MAMA awards on our phones?, if so how?
I sincerely hope SHINee can go this year :) After Onew's acting award & Taemi's HTS award, I really sincerely wish that all of SHINee can continue to SHINe. They deserve all of the love in the world. (I of course want other bands to go, like my two seconds (EXO & BTS) but Shinee is forever my 1st)
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it 😄🙌 and hmm I think it's possible but I think it's better to watch it on a laptop or a tablet (if you have one), but if not I think you can watch it on your phone. Usually, when the time comes for the MAMA to air, links to stream it will be available online somewhere like Twitter or maybe Facebook. But we will keep you posted on that ☺ -Taemi🐱 @Lizluvspurple

Intro to Kpop Playlist
So I think an introduction to Kpop playlist should be specified to a person's taste....and that varies of course but I'll just go with my taste and we'll see where that gets us lol. After all, I figured out what I didnt like in kpop from the list of kpop introduction songs I was given by my bestie. But I also found a few gems that I can't live without. Believe me it was a looooooooooooong list. I was bound to find something I liked. And of course because I'm an overachiever.... I went way past the 10 song limit. Bad llama... Big Bang__ Bad Boy Of course I had to start out this list with the song that I finally gave a chance on the very loooong list my bestie gave me. I love Big Bangs videos and the way they're shot because they find ways to showcase each member and you get to see a distinction between them....makes it easier to be like "Ohhhhhhhhhhh I like that one" to new fans. And this song gives you that feeling of Have I heard this before?? Which can quickly turn to Why haven't I heard this before.....I need more (ʘдʘ╬) Taeyang__Ringa Linga This beat is sick....there's no denying. And YBs on my bias list....of course he's on here, duhhh. Jay Park ft Simon Dominic and Gray__ Metronome Jamworthy....classy....but still sick. You all know about my love affair with AOMG... I can't praise them enough. EXO__Call Me Baby Now I was torn between EXO songs to put on here but chose this one because my 6 month old LoveBug can't get enough of it. She dances to it which is the cutest thing to watch. Kids know a good beat when they hear one. And truth be told I put this list on for my Babygirl who's 3 and she in turn danced all afternoon. HOTSHOT__Watch Out I had to add this in....just released but no denying it's good stuff that errybody should appreciate. From the beat to the way the MV was shot....its just awesome and it really is quite beautiful. I just had to because they're my favorite rookie boy group from last year. F(x)__Red Light This entire album is soooooooo good. They don't have a typical sound and I love that. Electric Shock was on the intro list I was given and tbh....I hated it but it grew on me. But this....idk what it is about the beat and such... it's just awesome. And they're wearing eye patches and eyeliner on one eye.....Come onnnn these gals are fierce and fearless. 2NE1__Falling In Love One of my personal favorites and my girl proclaimed it her song lol. The ladies are looking flawless as always. The beat has this reggae feel to it that just screams summer and summer screams fun. Yayyyy this song is fun.....next! Epik High ft Beenzino, Verbal Jint, Mino, Bobby, and B.I __Born Hater This song is pretty much an intoduction to mainstream Korean hip-hop. Lol Sooooo many featuring artists....but that's the reason I love it. The song has this old school hip hop feel...it's a solid beat. If there's anything I've learned about Kpop.... it's that the beats trump all....they're hella clean. *side note to my fanman buddy....is it part of the video concept for them to embody the seven deadly sins? Tablo as Sloth, Beenzino as Greed, Verbal Jint as Lust, Mithra as Gluttony, Mino as Wrath, Bobby as Pride, B.I as Envy.....orrrrrrrr did I just work this out in my head like this by overthinking? Bc that's what I thought at first.....granted I've only seen the video a few times. Dok2 ft Loco and Crush__No More This is like my anthem. No idea how many times I've been asked "Who is this? Is it a cover? It's really good." HAH no bish no  ̄ˍ ̄ Then I pull out my iPod....and say "Oh you gonn' learn today". Rain__Hip Song Its Rain....and that choreography tho.... that's all I gotta say. Oh and the song is pretty catchy too Hahahaha. Rain__ It's Raining You just gotta learn you some Rain if you're gonna get into Kpop. Kim Hyun Joong ft Jay Park__Unbreakable This choice needs no explanation....great song. Jay Park. Great visuals. Shirtless ripped men doing body rolls in a downpour complete with red lighting.... yes. Yes please. Crush ft Gaeko __Hug Me I love love love me some Crush....his voice is just so passionate. And can't go wrong with Gaeko on a track. San E ft Bumkey __ Body Language This hook is just so damn catchy. Bumkey's voice.... I just love it. Bummer he's gone away for the next 5 years....I was quite depressed over this news (╥_╥) Zion T. ft Dok2__ Click Me Zion T....he's original. His tone....his style....just everything about him is totally his own. I've had this track on repeat for days. And Dok2..... <3 I mean what can I say about him? He kills. Lucky J__Can You Hear Me This group is HOT. Their rendition of Run Devil Run had me actually pulling a Dok2 and yelling "Turn up!" somewhere in there. This song is addicting....Jessi has called the song typical but honestly this is exceptional. BTS__Let Me Know I could've picked any song from them but this one just pulled me into their album. Its got this ethereal sound and kind of transports you to another place. It's hard not to sing along or make some kind of connection to the song despite the language barrier. Jay Park__The Promise And I hafta wrap it up with a slow jam from Jay Park....just for the ladies. As my cousin said...."I have no idea what he's saying but damn that boy can sing to me all day any day." Big Bang__Fantastic Baby This song is practically iconic....and it's universally a jam. I'm sure there are aliens out there with this on blast. Okay i lied.....now Im done. *Drops the mic* Tagging as always my main fanman @MattK95 *picks up mic again* Again...I wanna apologize for going over the limit by 8 songs....I get carried away.... 죄송합니다. *bows out*
I'm gonna Miss my BIGBANG 😢

Kpop Relatables for every Kpop fan. You do this too, don't lie.
Hey everyone! In honor of today being my birthday starting.. 3 hours ago, I have decided to post these relatable and fun kpop pictures I have found and wanted to share with you all. I wanted to make sure you all got a couple laughs and know that you are absolutely not alone in this community. I just found some of these while I was looking up kpop things( like I always do) and stumbled upon them. Thank you all for always being there and tagging me in things i may like. It always makes me feel wanted and like I'm part of something which is something I have always wanted. If any of you ever want to talk or let me know what you want me to post about, you can always message me or comment, my inbox is always open!! Enjoy guys!!! I'm pretty sure most, if not all of us have done this at one point or another. Even I did it yesterday when I watched the end of the dance for EOEO by Uniq when they are grinding on the floor- yes I literally said "I wish I could be that floor." This is true in a lot of ways. Having a bias sometimes does seem better than having a boyfriend. Having a bias as a boyfriend would be AMAZING!! But also I've set my boyfriend bar so high to match my bias, so that's one reason I will never have a relationship. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ! Am I the only one that does this? Ah eye smiles. They hit you right in the feels! The eye smile isn't iconic just because our idols are so adorable when they do it (although it is a big part of it) but it's that they happiness that shows on their face that makes their smiles huge and their eyes sink away to tiny adorable slits. Haha. I think we can all agree eye smiles are dangerous, heart melting things. Who do you think has the best eye smiles in kpop? ^ㅅ^ This couldn't be more true to me. What people who aren't kpop fans don't understand is, we have all joined together and not just became friends and fellow fans, but we have also become a family who support each other and each other's fandoms. Yet another statement that couldn't be more true. Before kpop, I wouldn't have met so many people both here and outside of the Vingle kpop community. Before someone mentions they like kpop i find it hard to take a lot of interest in them but once the word kpop comes up, I break into my kpop loving self. And a lot of the time, we become friends and continue to stretch kpop love across the world. These quotes just make me smile and are over all inspirational to me. I really enjoy how wise and knowledgable our idols are. They are more than people may think. I've heard people say, "yeah they are good at singing and dancing, but that's all they are good for." But we all know that's not true. Our idols rank high in sports, school, languages, performing and so much more, which makes me happy when I read these amazing words they say in their music and in real life. Being a kpop fan takes a special kind of person. We are able to look past the language barriers, the distance, the age differences, the unnecessary and sometimes hurtful remarks from others and still support and love continue to love Kpop and idols with all our hearts. No matter how hard it may be to be a kpop fan, international or not, we still stick it out and support that Hallyu wave all the way!!! As I said before, we have some of the most wise people as idols. This quote from CL makes me incredibly happy and I couldn't have said this better myself. I get bashed all the time by people I don't know, non-kpop friends and even my family always saying there is no point to listening to music that you can't understand, but what they don't understand is music truly IS universal. You don't have to know the words to a song to be able to jam to it. Honestly, since I'm so used to kpop, even though I can't understand what they are saying, it doesn't seem like a foreign language to me. So there is no point to the hating on kpop music and it's fans, because to us, we can enjoy the music just fine without knowing the words. And we are proud of it!! And yes, I have thought about this a lot before. My parents don't really get why I like kpop, but I even said to them, "it could be worse, I could be drinking, doing drugs, partying and hooking up with guys like most kids my age." But I don't really do that. My social life is just a relationship between me and my cell phone. And all of you of course. I really gotta get out more, but I like staying in and doing nothing. Who else has had this problem where your family just really doesn't get that this is a good thing and you could be doing MUCH worse things? This is just a relatable kpop thing that I thought many of you would know about and have also done. There are so so so many pictures of my biases on my phone of the EXACT SAME PICTURE!! I just never know if I had saved it or not. There are times where I'm like "I know for a fact that I have seen this picture," so I screenshot it and when I go through all of my pictures later on, It turns out I have seen it before (a few times apparently) and thought the same thing back then too, so I have multiples of the same pics. These are just things I feel that I want to happen just because I am a fangirl and I do honestly think I can end up with my bias someday. It's true. There have been times where I needed to focus on my studies so I tried to leave the kpop world and I couldn't even do it for a day, let alone forever. Kpop is just to Fantastic to even try to leave. Once we got you, you ain't ever gonna be able to leave. You're in for life. I've done it. I bet some of you have too. Kpop does take over your world, but it's actually a good thing. Since I became a kpop fan, my life has become better and I've met some really good and dependable people who can relate to me as well. Fangirling is my job though, besides my actual job... Yeah, international fans can relate. Being an international fan, you learn to make it work. One of the things we must make work is the distance and knowing we won't be able to see concerts unless we watch the fancams. And even though it's hard sometimes, fancams are fun to watch because there are so many from so many different angles and shows that it makes being an international fan easier. Find your bias idols and groups! Let me know who is your favorite!! The light stick oceans. "Only in kpop can you see the different colors of the ocean" I love kpop oceans; they are a life goal of mine, and I really hope to get to be in one one day. What about you guys? Have you been in a light stick ocean before? Which ones if so, and if not whose would you want to be in most? And lastly, the things that connect us are not only how crazy we are, but that we are all crazy together. Kpop has the ability to bring different people together and give them something in common that most people can never relate to. It makes me really happy when I randomly think about the people I have met from being into kpop and the thing I have learned. Since I started listening to kpop and learning about korea in general I've learned to be more considerate of people and to try and understand people more for what they like and not judge them for it. Kpop has absolutely changed my life for the better and I can't and don't want to imagine what my life would be like without it.
SHINee Post Letters, Explain Why They Will Still Perform in Japan Next Month
On January 9th, SHINee had updated their website with handwritten letters from the members. SHINee has schedules in February for their Tokyo and Osaka Dome tour "SHINee WORLD THE BEST 2018 ~ FROM NOW ON". The members of SHINee addressed the status of the concert. "I wanted to share news in a calmer state, after long considerations, we have made the decision to go ahead with the concert." Here are their letters: Minho: Hello this is SHINee's Minho. In regards to the status of SHINee's Japan concert, I wanted to share news in a calmer state, after long considerations and discussions with each other. While I'm writing this, I'm having many feelings and thoughts and wishes but I hope that my message is able to be conveyed [through this letter]. There are many people who are open to the idea of us returning, and others against the idea, but we actually don't know what is the correct way to handle things in this moment. However, we think that this is our best decision to continue our promise to [Jonghyun]. The memories we have been able to share between our members, staff and fans have been so precious and they are some of the happiest moments that I don't think can be replaced. Jonghyun's space is also something that can't be replaced, there are many worries regarding whether we will be able to stand on stage as a group again, but I will prepare the fullest so my heart is shown in the near future. Jonghyun hyung and the rest of us promised, when we were tired and wanted to quit, and when we wanted to run away since we were too weak, we will remember that [the fans] were our biggest strength, and because of this, we will continue to keep singing. Let us all overcome this battle together. During our time together this cold winter, please continue to share your warm supports with SHINee and Jonghyun hyung. Key: Hello this is SHINee's Key. There have been many people worried about me. I am still trying to gather my mind and return to an everyday life. When I see items that Jonghyun hyung had left behind, my heart sinks and I start tearing up due to the memories. My head always hurts at the thought of it. I am trying to work hard to overcome my mind by instead believing I am spending time with [Jonghyun] hyung. There have been many people who will continue to support SHINee with our future promotions, and I have also thought about it as well. I however, did not want to give up as [SHINee] for a restful mind. There have also been many people worried about us [SHINee], and we have decided to continue the Japan concert as planned. Jonghyun would want us to do something like this, and I believe that it is of SHINee['s character] to continue and keep our promise to fans to showcase a good stage. This is SHINee's 10th anniversary. Thank you always so much for supporting and taking care of us. We will return [the favour] by showing a SHINee-stage. I love you, and thank you. Taemin: Hello this is SHINee's Taemin. To be truthful, I do not have much confidence to continue performing at first, but I want to keep my promise and in the future I don't want to say goodbye to the members. Looking back, I was the happiest when I felt secure and these moments were when I was fond with both my members and my fans. I don't want to give up these memories. The future will never be easy, and I'm aware of this. I will continue to try my best so that SHINee will never lose its light and will never be forgotten. The members and the fans are what have created these memories that are so beautiful. I will forever be grateful in regards to those memories in the long run. I want to keep being loved as SHINee, and I want to stand strong on the stage as SHINee for our member who will be watching us from the sky. I'm sorry to the fans who have been worrying, please keep watching over us. It is cold so please take care of yourselves and I wish you a happy new year. Onew: Hello this is SHINee's Onew. I'm not sure what to say first. I'm thankful that you have been able to protect and care for our members, and I love you so much, I apologize about worrying about you. I'm sorry to have troubled fans. I never thought this this would occur, that we would be able to perform again. However, Jonghyun's mom told us to keep going, and I think the best way to help someone who was longing in pain would be for us to provide comfort to them. I will work much harder even though I come short [in many ways]. Even though I do lack, I want to do my very best for SHINee. Even if the path is difficult, I will work my hardest. Jonghyun will be a SHINee member for eternity, in our hearts. In the hearts of our fans. Nothing will change. I will continue to work as SHINee. Thank you.
