Kim Hyun-Joong is a victim of Ms. Choi
Nothing this Ms. Choi has said has added up... She is defaming KHJ and acts like a jealous ex trying to trap an unwilling man into staying with her... She pulls the supposed abuse card but lacks any proof and then her lawyer doctors pictures (which I am sure will be used against her in court by KHJ Attorney Atty Lee...), she has no medical proof of any of these alleged miscarriages, nor the humanly impossible 5 pregnancies within 7 months... She would have had to be pregnant once almost everyone of those months... She tried to pin the deadbeat dad image onto him before the child was even a month old... He straight up said if the child is his he will support it, took a DNA test by SK's most respected facility and even paid for the child's test ahead of time and does Ms. Choi refuse DNA test because she suspects foul play??? No she just needs an excuse to meet the man who doesn't want to see her or be around her... Saying that all three of them should take the test together as the only way she will agree sounds like a cry of desperation... If there even is really a child... She couldn't even give him evidence of it while it was still in the oven... She hides from the public and says what she wishes to defame a man... And as a public people judge him without even knowing if all the supposed texts even came from him... I can put lets say Larry's name as Joe's number so the exposed text messages are a farce... I really hope KHJ pulls through and gets his justice and Ms. Choi ends up in jail for the hardships she has placed upon KHJ and his parents... She is a despicable woman who cries wolf... Women who have really been abused may be seen as liars because of women like Ms. Choi... I feel embarrassed as a woman myself when I see the shit Ms. Choi has done... I can see through her lies... Why can'tothers who judged KHJ harshly see it as well... Her stories are so full of holes it isn't funny... Who else out there supports Kim Hyun-Joong??? Haters just don't answer for I will just delete those comments...
Korean Winter Street Foods
Korea is proud of its food, but it REALLY proud of its street food. There are different foods depending on the season, and I have to say that winter is the best. Here's a list of foods you MUST TRY if you get the chance: 군고구마 (kun go-gu-ma) 군 means "roasted" and 고구마 is Korean sweet potato. The potato is roasted in a huge barrel oven, then handed to you with the skin still on. It's your job to peel it and eat the sweet goodness inside. You can buy an entire bag if you want! 호떡 (ho-ddeok) 호떡 is sort of a pancake/donut combination. It is fried dough filled with cinnamon, sugar, and occasionally nuts. It is flattened into a pancake shape and handed to you in a tiny paper cup. Be careful with the first bite because the inside are often boiling hot! (There are also vegetable versions but the dessert version is much better in my opinion!) 군밤 (kun bam) We just learned that 군 means roasted and now we learn another word: 밤 means chestnut! Just like in New York where there are roasted nut stands everywhere around Christmas time, the cold weather brings out the roasted chestnut vendors. 계란빵 (kye-ran bbang) 계란 means egg while 빵 means bread so voila! Egg bread! The bread part is similar to corn bread, but a little less corn-y and the egg is steamed on top to make a really, really delicious combo. It's my favorite street food after 군고구마 :D 호두과자 (ho-du kwa-ja) The small of this is unnnnbelievable! 호두 means walnut and 과자 means cookie or snack. Therefore 호두과자 is a walnut cookie! They are shaped like walnuts and filled with sweet red bean. You can buy these by the bag full too! 회오리감자 (hwae-o-ri kam-ja) LOOK AT THESE THINGS! They are called 회오리감자 because 회오리 means tornado and 감자 means potato. Behold the potato tornado! I have NO idea how you eat these :) Have you guys tried any of these? Which are your favorite? @NysA @xanderskissme @AmbieB @Jiyongixoxo @BabySheep @phantomsluvr @Rhia @VixenViVi @JohnEvans @RobertMarsh @ElizabethT @ArmyofKookie @shantalcamara @KittyKpop @jannatd93 @cthulu @HarperKennett @musicundefined9 @DekaraMiller @Mahealani @kpoplove89 @tannyo @IMNII @kpopisnylife @KoreanLove2 @lawtont @baileykayleen @oceanseokjin @Sammie99522 @RoyallyPrincess @heidichiesa @asterkimchee @CurrySoop @malibella @puppycatX0X0 @notgucci3 @Lizzeh @reallychelsea @JorgeRAMME @adikiller @blazinpurplehl @kvnguyen @lupemontserrat @ParkMinRin13 @peytoncarter2 @aguileragissel @FallingByeol @adritha13 @toughcookie @TesneemElAlami @VWolf12XOXO @ToyaH @aleciaLOVES @no5alive @AnnahiZaragoza @TravelSizedGirl @kthyl @Adetoro @linzi0302 @hahabts @primodiva93 @cindystran @Saeda1320 @misssukyi @preeta @Yearnin2learn @DorisMay27 @iforisabelle @TLeahEdwards @robertakm64 @azaraa @JeanNwagbuo @aliahwhbmida @WiviDemol @ariana2k @sosoaloraine23 @hisundays @3mmY4 @sukkyongwanser @asterkimchee @misssukyi @MandySpaulding @LatoyaHudson @Claymorex @SaraHelguero @thatkdramalover @sierradimes @TokkiGwiyomi @AnelVega @KaiTakashima @UKissMeKevin @jemitza @VWolf12XOXO @HuonTreeRoo @lovebluecolor @kel53 @JezziCrypt @LysetteMartinez @Fleurdemai00 @oxSoZeroxo @k0reanbbyq @ceramoore3 @YessicaCardenas @Kuramariin @jannatd93 @herreravanessa9 @WiviDemol @VixenViVi @Roxy1903 @NiaLuv19 @kmayong @Baekyeol27 @9thMuse @Ilikepancakes @CandaceJordan @RobertMarsh @KiKi29 @Rhia @AnnahiZaragoza @YGWinner @EllieDean @LizaNightshade @panouvang123 @sherrysahar @mistymaity @GuerlyReyes @maralatto @shantalcamara @paszikelly @SerenaMcG @unbreakable1109 @Diablo6 @YessicaCardenas @Tigerlily84 @JorgeRAMME @Bose @AegyoBunny @VivianCrespoMed @Airess95 @SHINee808 @DaisySalazar @Pickles440 @BryAnnaAhrens @CloverShadows @JordanShuler @ChrystalA @Diajuni @minsangu @TatyTheTot @GraceWatson @NickySerban @Sinique @AnaMata7397 @nightcoreanimen @KarlythePanda66 @KellyOConnor @trashlord @hyolouxx @Sarahwifi @JayDay @nettaj1013 @Miyukichan @XergaB20 @pharmgirlerin @JasmineWilliams @toughcookie @warjeensuleiman @DasiaB @talimarks @ckienitz @KeyBoss @ChristiMarie @YokoUdoran @hayesfordaze @KagamiTaiga @malibella @ocherrylimeadeo @DjKpop12 @reyestiny93 @ZeeRow

Kpop is Actually Born from Korean Protest Songs
Alright so I'm a total history nerd, I majored in East Asian Studies and eat stuff like this up. Read the full (long!) article here - I will try to explain it basically, but its really worth the read. Here we go: It all started with Japan. As you might know, Japan colonized Korea eventually trying to erase Korean culture all together on the peninsula. In the very beginning though, that wasn't the case. Japan was willing to share Korean and Japanese culture, and the Japanese and Korean elite often spoke together and traded pop culture. Japanese elite brought over Western-influenced music because of their connections with the Western world (which Korea didn't interact with other than missionaries at the time) The Korean elite wanted to be modern and successful like Japan, so they adopted this music (called Changga) as their new favorite genre. (You can hear a lot of European influences in early Korean music...) This is where it gets interesting. The Korean elite wanted to be independent of Japan. They wanted Korea to stand alone as a strong nation, not pushed around by China or Japan anymore. They stared the pro-independence movement. Now, most revolutions like this would turn to traditional music, traditional culture to strengthen the country (for example, Korea would use ancient Korean songs to protest the Japanese occupation) but the Korean elite didn't! They wanted Korea to be strong, and to be strong they felt like they needed to modernize - ie be like the West. They used this Changga music (ironically brought to them by Japan) to protest Japanese rule! To this day Korea is always trying to "keep up with" the Western world so that they can be considered modern and powerful. Most things that they do is to modernize and stay trendy because that is how the country has always defined strength. But then, Japan decided to make money off of that... Japan had seen its first real pop music hit in 1914. People were buying records, following tabloids, and really getting into pop culture. That was really the birth of the Japanese music industry. In 1926, Korea had a similar experience. A song called the "Death Song" appeared, sung by Yun Shim-Deok. The singer committed suicide with her lover right after the song was released and the story made HUGE headlines. It was chilling, 'romantic,' and dramatic. Korea ate it up. Japanese record companies came in and started selling the record, selling over 50,000 copies! (In 1926 that number is totally insane!) You can listen to the death song here: The record industry after that was run mainly by the Japanese yakuza and their partnered Korean gangsters. The industry was set up very similar to how it is now, with entertainment industries doing everything in-house (SM has specific song writers that only work for SM, and their artists are actors, singers, models, etc) This is also why so many Kpop artists become actors...because even back in the 1920s musicians couldn't make enough money so the real way to make a living was through acting. That still stands today. So, today's Kpop is based off of this first "Korean pop" hit (the death song) AND protest songs against Japan. So when people say that Kpop is just a copy of Western music, they're sort of right but not in the way that they're thinking. Yes, its a reflection of Western culture, but the reason behind it is that Korea has been fighting to be recognized as a modern, powerful force to be reckoned with since the early 1900s. They want people to know Korea is strong, modern, and a country to look up to, not look down upon. So the next time someone tells you Kpop is a lame copy of American pop - give them this little history lesson. Again, PLEASE read the full article - its so interesting! HERE it is!
Why K-Pop Fan Clubs Rule!
Hello Vingle K-pop Family! I know we all love the music and admire the idols, but I just wanted to take a moment and talk about how amazing K-pop Fan Clubs make us feel. Big Bang - VIP - Very Important People We could be part of a thousand different fan clubs, but what other fandom will make you feel like a Very Important Person? Whether you like one Big Bang song or every single album, and whether you found them today or six years ago, you are a VIP for life! :) Super Junior - E.L.F - Ever Lasting Friends We are never alone or lonely as Super Junior fans. You will always find others who love SuJu just as much as you and are ready to fangirl or fanboy along with you! What other fan club brings you together with everlasting friends? 2PM - HOTTEST As if 2PM's beastly hotness isn't enough, the fan club is also the hottest. As in, we are the hottest. No other compliment beats that. Of course, the hottest idols deserve the hottest fans. So the next time someone tries to bring you down, tell them you're the hottest! Beast - B2UTY Puns on puns with this one. Beast put a twist on Beauty and the Beast for their fan club. Since the Korean pronunciation of the number 2 is "e," they came up with this clever alternative for beauty. Now, not only are we the hottest, but we are also quite the B2utys. Wonder Girls - Wonderful It's not just the male idol group fan clubs that make us feel amazing. Wonder Girls' fans are absolutely wonderful. No one knows how to make us feel awesome better than our idol fan clubs do. Thanks to both the idols themselves and all the fantastic fans. MBLAQ - A+ Regardless of what grades we get in school, we are always an A+ with MBLAQ. The origin of this fan club name is a bit funny because all the members are of A blood type and the "+" represents the fans. Yay to A+! Se7en - Lucky 7 Our luck is never down as a Se7en fan. We are the Lucky 7s. If his music isn't uplifting enough, the fan club certainly puts us on cloud nine. Maybe it's a YG idol group fan club thing, which brings me to my next fan club... 2NE1 - Blackjack Whether or not we are good with cards, our game is on since we are the Blackjacks with 2NE1. Since Blackjack (21) is the winning card, regardless of whether you actually win or lose, you ALWAYS win. How cool is that? BTS - ARMY - Adorable Representative M.C for Youth How clever is this one? Fan clubs can even make us feel badass! BTS makes us feel powerful and strong as ARMYs but they actually explained the meaning to be that the fans will always stick with BTS like the body and the armor are always together. VIXX - Starlight We are literally (okay, maybe not literally) stars as VIXX fans. If anyone knows how to be the right amount of awesome and cutely cheesy, it's the VIXX fan club. Who doesn't want to be a star? SS501 - SSS - Super Star Supporters And finally, what better joy than to be recognized for being great fans. The SS501 fan club makes us feel epic with the Super Star Supporter title. After all, it does take a great deal of awesome to be good fans. XD To the wonderful K-pop fan clubs that make us feel awesome!
