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?!?!

MBC Strike: What This Means for Kpop Fans
MBC is finally going on strike which is completely not normal for Korea. As you probably know, the working culture in Korea is insane, especially in the entertainment industry where everyone involved (not just the actors) often work 20-23 hours a day. There have recently been un uptick in suicides by writers and producers because of the immense stress put on them. MBC is also known here in Korea to be under the control of bigger powers, such as the old president who was impeached. Rather than sharing the real news, the anchors were forced to spin stories to be positive for the president and to support her because the owners of the station were being put under pressure by the corrupt government. Basically MBC is just bad news, and the workers are sick of it. As of this week, the workers have all stopped coming to work meaning unless something was previously recorded, there will be no news, no radio, no dramas, no nothing, until they get what they want (way better working conditions and probably a way better CEO) Because of this, it looks like a music festival has been cancelled as well. BTS V and Twice Dahyun were going to host it and its line up would have included BTS, TWICE, Red Velvet, B1A4, BTOB, Teen Top, B.A.P, MAMAMOO, GFRIEND, BLACKPINK, iKON, EXID, NU’EST W, Lovelyz, ASTRO, and PRISTIN. To be honest, I don't really care that this was cancelled, as I'd much rather have thousands of people's lives improved than watch a few groups perform one or two songs each that we've already heard before. I'm sad if this was anyone's one chance to see these groups live (like if they were vacationing to korea) but in the long run I think it will help a lot more people than it will inconvenience. Here's to hoping the working conditions of people behind the shows we love so much improve greatly <3
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?
Hotel De Luna MV's
Have you seen those MV's that just makes you so entranced that you want a full episode or movie dedicated to it? Yea, 4 MV's that are truly made from Episodes of Hotel De Luna that will have you wanting to see the show. https://youtu.be/fn4Pv2zBn7Q psst . . . I know In so cheesy like an ad for this show but honestly after watching Gasoline I knew I missed episodes and got sucked in. (Btw Gasoline does spoil scenes if you haven't watched past the first 2 episodes) It's a bit refreshing to see fan made videos like these to basically showcase an episode or scenes from the series to impact your perspective and go yea it looks interesting, yes I need more! Btw I'm in withdrawal of KDrama's for the past 4 weeks and starting to feel the need to get back to it. Fam tag!

4 Mangas That Became Popular Live Action Drama
It's no surprise that manga is popular around the globe. In fact, many dramas get their inspiration from manga series. After talking to some vinglers yesterday I revisit a couple of old dramas I watched during high school and found out the original storyline was actually from popular mangas. There are anime versions of some of the series but this card will be mainly the live action adaption in different languages! Hanazakari kimi ni tachie e (1996) Japanese version: Hana Kimi (2007) Taiwanese version: Hana Kimi (2006) Korean version: To the Beautiful You (2012) Boys Over Flower Japanese Version: Hana Yori Dango (2005) Taiwanese Version: Meteor Garden (2001) Korean Version: Boys Over Flower (2009) Itazura Na Kiss (1996) Taiwanese Version: It Started with a Kiss (2005) Korean Version: Mischievous Kiss (2010) Japanese Version: Itazura Na kiss Live in Tokyo (2013) Mars (1996-2000) Taiwanese Version: (2004) - Starring Barbie Xu & Vic Zhou Japanese Version: (2016) - Starring Taisuke Fujigaya, Masataka Kubota, Marie Iitoyo Is this new to you?
