I Found The Ultimate 90s Kid's Store in Seoul

I made a video about 3 awesome vintage stores in the neighborhood of Hongdae in Seoul.

The second one though, is seriously out of this world.

There were so many toys there that I had as a kid, some that I even forgot existed!!!


If you're in Seoul, TOTALLY check this out!

7 Iconic Prince Songs To Remember His Legacy
Today we've lost a legend. At age 57, iconic pop star Prince has died. He was the voice behind "Purple Rain" and "Let's Go Crazy" singing pop hits to define the generation. Prince was a man of secrecy, pure exclusivity, and always stayed at a firm distance from his fans letting the music only speak for itself. Like the passings of Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, Prince will go down in history as another pop legend who died too young. Prince passed away at 10:07 a.m. CT in his Paisley Park residence this morning. He was found unconscious in an elevator by a man whose name has yet to be released. The man called 911 at 9:43 a.m. and when paramedics arrived, they were unable to revive the legend after attempting CPR. Though cause of death originally claimed to be from a severe flu, new information is slowly pointing to a drug overdose. There are no signs of fowl play. "The person is dead here. ... And the people are just distraught," the man told the police dispatcher. Prince's autopsy is set for Friday. Below I have provided a list of 7 of Prince's greatest hits and the iconic lyrics from each: 1. Purple Rain I never meant to cause you any sorrow I never meant to cause you any pain I only wanted one time to see you laughing I only want to see you laughing in the purple rain. 2. Let's Go Crazy Instead of asking him how much of your time is left Ask him how much of your mind, baby 'Cause in this life Things are much harder than in the after world In this life You're on your own. 3. When Doves Cry This is what it sounds like When doves cry. 4. Kiss You don't have to be rich To be my girl You don't have to be cool To rule my world Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with I just want your extra time and your Kiss. 5. Raspberry Beret She wore a Raspberry beret The kind you find in a second hand store Raspberry beret And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more Raspberry beret I think I love her. 6. Little Red Corvette Little red Corvette Baby you're much too fast. 7. 1999 I was dreamin' when I wrote this So sue me if I go 2 fast But life is just a party, and parties weren't meant 2 last War is all around us, my mind says prepare 2 fight So if I gotta die I'm gonna listen 2 my body tonight Yeah, they say two thousand zero zero party over, Oops out of time So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999.
Korean 101: Christmas in Seoul
There is a department store in the center of Seoul called 신세계 (Shin-sae-gye) which means "New World." It decorates like crazy for Christmas so I'm going to use some pictures as inspiration for a few Learn Korean words today :D Christmas decorations: 크리스마스의 장식 (keu-ri-seu-ma-seu jang-shik) Christmas stocking: 크리스마스 양말 (keu-ri-seu-ma-seu yang-mal) Christmas tree: 크리스마스 트리 (keu-ri-seu-ma-seu teu-ri) Pretty: 예쁘다 (ye-ppeu-da) Beautiful: 아름답다 (a-reum-dap-da) Cool!: 신기하다 (shin-ki-ha-da) Do you guys have places with cool decorations (장식) near you?! @RobertMarsh @darcmana @thePinkPrincess @AmbieB @XergaB20 @Ercurrent @adikiller @darcmana @JohnEvans @BtsIsLife @sherrysahar @Bose @NickySerban @EvelynBravo @KellyOConnor @CloverShadows @JasmineWilliams @VixenViVi @EllieDean @SHINee808 @BabySheep @KiKi29 @WiviDemol @KarlythePanda66 @ChrystalA @ElizabethT @Sinique @merryjayne13 @exoxerox @robertakm64 @exoxerox @Sarahwifi @ArmyofKookie @unbreakable1109 @saraortiz2002 @JezziCrypt @jannatd93 @panouvang123 @herreravanessa9 @cherriblossom17 @kpopisnylife @Rhia @RainaC3 @viparm @StephyBAP @Emealia @DekaraMiller @mistymaity @themrshongki @AbbyCoday @Exoexo @DestinyGLove @RishaDC @Baekyeol27 @Ilikepancakes @meoutofme @JosieAnime15 @LilMcGriddle18 @Aripendragon @LizaNightshade @DasiaB @Diajuni @zoila205 @ChoHee1 @aguileragissel @mjmora8 @Taisa @Belenrodexo @SamanthaLimon @GuerlyReyes @NysA @ckienitz @kamijo @LelaCrockett @JasminMartinez @paigelynnmag @shantalcamara @JeonJungkook17 @Thelovelyscout @swoopingisbad99 @yxngjia @JessicaSchnipke @RihannaTiaMay @QueenLele @faith12246 @lizdickson @thedopeshow1994 @chrissimari @animelova346 @Lizluvspurple @staceyholley @NellaKim @jeppblackmen @Cattt @nerdykeira @izzy08290 @kanatm @drewmortem @Izab3lla @qlo2011 @nerdykeira @lupemontserrat @MaeganHickerson @angelicpsyche @namyoongi @KayLu @blockbbum @CyrahImaniRich @NoChillSavana @theseoulofkiara @KirstieHocker @kaehyun702 @aiisson @JinAsh @cheesyginger64 @clenkendrick @hana09 @LilyVang @kawaiieeyxre @BrianniWilliams @LaynicornLay @thedaylifeofana @MichaelLosquadr @TayDee @jinstaekookie @JustinaMclean @DejaunaeSiders @alientae1095 @Alysworld @mellowsmootheex @KiroTheNeko @CatherineBrooks @Banime21 @AnimeInhale @stirlingite @BereniceEsparza @AlleyWoozi17 @JoanneJr @mrsfullbuster @NinzeePhyu @gabriellarramos @ManiGray @jenjenkhreim @GeraldoJacobo @justcallmekyki @CeilidhHoadley @MandySpaulding @hazell1013 @shellyfuentes70 @ChansyVang06 @HayleyEastman @mudkip @Shadowsfyre @BrittanyBelken @cheersmacky @KayleeLong @Chocolat09 @KaiOppa @oreofrenzy09 @lovebluecolor @Xmochachip @KaylaBurge @BreeHubler @coyote122014 @kchavens09 @ChelestiEdwards @Ninado @Swhitta @desesoray @VaneRodriguez @JazminQuiroz @AnnaArai @ReiRei @DanHenley @FelicianaRomero @kelleyvinh @DustanCarpenter @Jimidiot @NatalyaRodrigue @maivtsov @yohanlee127 @squishypanda @MikeKusanagi @KatieRussell @namjoonswife @ivyheart13 @OliviaMcAuley @Venisce @Taehyungie @rosepinkerton16 @BrendaValdez @ShannonSaysHey @Tiyanekia @twinxon @Saeda1320 @k8mccombs @ZitaMahoney @kvnguyen @Solimar @jader @AngelaLaurent @mari7 @kraft226 @CristalTrujillo @JHOPE1435 @MakenzieBonney @notgucci3 @AnelVega @Rainbowlady16
My 90s Toys Are Better Than Yours ;)
1) Polly Pocket Polly Pocket was seriously one of the best toys I ever had. I remember when I was a little girl, I stole one and I was too little to realize what I was doing. But I went home with a Polly Pocket and I was the happiest girl ever. Although I had an impressive world of Barbie dolls and Barbie things, I think I appreciated Polly Pocket the most -- probably because I was able to take it everywhere I went. And my imagination with wild with these toys. POLLY!!! 2) Tamagotchi Yess! I vividly remember having these in elementary school. I remember the teachers had to make the ban on them, because the students (including me) were HIGHLY addicted to them. They pooped, they slept, and they grew! Since it was like taking care of a real pet, you had to pay attention to them. If you ever ignored them for a long period of time, you came back to a shit mess, or sometimes they die. :( Can we please bring these back? 3) Bop It This is also on the list of one of the most addicting games ever. I am not even sure why I was so addicted to Bop It, but it was such an intriguing game. It's basically a memory toy. I would play this game hours on end. I remember even fighting with my sister for my turn to play the game. BOP IT! TWIST IT! PULL IT! 4) Easy Bake Oven Who was the best baker in the world? I WAS. This was the only time baking came easy. I can still remember the taste of the slightly-fake-tasting brownie. Every Time I used the toy, I definitely had to have my mother around to use it. Ever heard of the burning accidents from this toy -- I can totally believe. That Easy Bake Oven got hot. Brownies, anyone? 5) FURBY Goodness, this shit was scary. But I still played with it. During the day time I was in love with Furby, during the night time, I kept one eye open -- thanks to the 80s movie, Gremlins. And since Furby was technically a furry robot, it will go through it's weird tech-y things and do things on it's own. I still kinda like you, Furby. Kinda. 6) Super Soaker One of the COOLEST toys I had as a kid. This was freakin' fun as heck! And living in MIami where there was warm weather all year long, this toy came in handy. Who's going to get soaked today?! What kind of toys did you grow up having? My childhood was at its prime during the 1990s (I am an 80s baby!) Can I just please be a kid again???
Kpop Edition Guy Groups: Blast From the Past
Que tal peeps! This is your favorite chica Jessamine aka @amobigbang bringing you the KpopINT scope. You will see us posting cards relating to the past. As a Kpop fan or a fan of anything you must show respect to those who paved the way. Here at KpopINT we will look back on Kpop artists from the past and some things that may have been trending in South Korea back in the day. Imma get it cracking by admiring a few guy groups that opened up doors for the groups and Kpop artists that we love today. KpopINT Chairs: @bbyitskatie @MichelleIbarra @Sailynn KpopINT Fam: @amobigbang @daniimals @elaynethtrumpet @Gaarita100 @JohnEvans @Insfired @KpopBeat @krystalrikpop @LenaBlackRose @LexiMintkgtopty @ParkHwaYoung @parktaemi @reyestiny93 @Stefany17 @tayunnie None of these images or videos belong to KpopINT Writer Jessamine aka Social Media Event Organizer/Planner aka @amobigbang 1992: Seo Taiji and Boys (서태지와 아이들) This was a South Korean boy band that was active from 1992 to 1996. This was a 3 member group. Back in the early 90's 3 memeber groups were popular. The members of this group were Seo Taiji, Yang Hyun-suk and Lee Juno. They were know for working with an array of different genres. This group was way before their time. Many songs they created made many people upset (parents) due to having heavy influences from gangsta rap and rock music which was very popular during this time in America. Some songs were called unfit due to the lyrics and screaming in the background. Keep in mind this was during the time politicians were pushing for parental advisory labels and blaming music for the wild behaviors of the youth. Source "Come Back Home" by Seo Taiji and Boys This song was a huge hit in 1995. This song has a huge influence from American gangsta rap which was hot back in the USA during this time. 1993: Deux ( 듀스) This was a two member group (1993-1995). They were a well known Korean hip hop group back in the day. These guys hard work was helpful in building what we know as Kpop today. Kpop is not just pop music per se, but it has influences from other genres. The members are Lee Hyun Do and Kim Sung Jae. These two had major influences in the dance and fashion world as well. Source "Turn Around and Look at Me" was a hot song introduced in 1993. You can look at tell how their style as influenced today's Kpop artists. 1996- 2001H.O.T. (에이치오티) They were also known as High-five of teenagers. This was a group of 5 guys. This group was under SM. They were very popular and were the first group in Kpop to produce an album that was brought in a million dollars. Source "We are the Future" by H.O.T. This was another number 1 hit for this group. This song was released in 1998. Wow look at the difference in fashion and technology! 1999- present Fly to the Sky (플라이 투 더 스카이) This is a two member group under the SM umbrella. Unlike the other groups mentioned in this card this group is still active according to sources. Brian Joo and Hwanhee are the members of this group. Brian is American and Hwanhee is from Korean. That itself represents the merge of two different cultures. One big thing about older groups that still are active today is that they all learn to evolve and remake themsleves. This is exactly what this group has done. They were more into techno and very pop like music in the past. However, later in their music journey they began producing more R&B music. Source "Sea of Love" was released in 2002. I couldn't find any older m/v of them! I'm so sorry!
