Everything you need to know about ASTRO

Wow, if you thought ASTRO was a boy group to overlook because of their bright and cutesy school-boy image, you have another think coming (I read too much Enid Blyton as a kid). Between Victon and Astro, I’m having a good time discovering their music. I mean, look at all my Astro cuties in this video below:

Hands down, this song is so good and their sharp dance moves and synchronization are mesmerizing! Their voices are better than I remember and if I’m fangirling, I’ll have to say that I can’t decide between Rocky and Eunwoo.

Again – Astro

I’m just going to throw in this lyric video. I like to see line distributions for some strange reason and this song seems to have some of the best line distributions. I can’t imagine them switching lines at all.

Voice to the New World (mini album) – Victon

Here’s Victon’s first mini album. My favorite tracks are 1, 2, 4, and 5.

Ready (2nd mini album) – Victon

And here’s the 2nd mini album. All the songs are good but my favorite is 3. I love the way Hanse starts the song.. actually I think he starts all the songs in this album?! Seungsik and Sejun as the two main vocalists complement each other so well. I can’t identify Subin’s voice so I hope they give him a few more lines.

So Good – Taeyang

This song by Taeyang was released today so I have to put it here. Taeyang killin’ it as always.

All these songs are right up my alley. Enjoy.

Victon

Alright, you saw my Tweet. Now watch the video if you haven’t. I had to share because this song is really good.

The dance is cute, too. So watch that, too.

This song started it for me.

I’m growing fond of this one.

My favorite is Seungsik because his voice <3. This post was brought to you by ‘5 minutes before making dinner and I need to make sure you know who Victon is’. I may come back in and add more. Or I might do a whole new post if I have time to go watch their interview videos…..

Really, really

Have you heard the new Winner songs? Because they are back and better than ever. I seriously love Winner so much. Kind of miss TaeHyun but it’s just going to be 4 of them and their comeback has proven that they still haven’t lost touch with their appeal.

I’m disappointed that they only came out with 2 songs in their new album Fate Number For but I’m quite sure they’ll be releasing more new music soon. I love that they made one fast song and a slow one. Their fashion concept for this comeback is not that great but who cares when their vocals are so good?

Now listen to it!! Okay, wait. Get this – they dance in this comeback!! So cute. If you have time, watch the dance practice, too.

XOXO,

A big Winner fan.

Things about this week and next week

A lot of times this week, I felt like a lot of things were going wrong for me. I felt like I was going to see the doctor too many times and that obviously wasn’t a good feeling. I also realized how difficult it is to get certain words out of my mouth. But I’ve gotten over some of it.

Some things that were fun this week:

  1. Going to a fashion show, always an inspirational experience
  2. Volunteering for an event because who doesn’t love running around backstage and feeling important? Not to mention, I won a prize and my sister had to claim it in front of everyone under the K-pop superstar name I listed myself as. Sorry, not sorry but it was memorable and fun.
  3. Watching my friends dance for the event. Let’s face it: I love watching people dance. It makes me want to dance too!
  4. Wood carving. Who knew that could be so fun? It’s very relaxing when your carving tools are fresh and sharp. But once it starts to get blunt, all your energy will be gone just like that. It’s a new experience and I love it though.
  5. Answering “What is your dream job?” honestly for the first time.
  6. Talking to my career counselor for almost 3 hours. I love her, she’s so nice. She even made me hot chocolate.
  7. Finishing a super long lab report hours ahead of the deadline and completing most of it without assistance.
  8. Finishing one of my last few presentations for the semester. I feel like my speaking skills have somewhat improved and I am thankful for the experience even though anxiety was killing me at the beginning.
  9. Classmates bringing food to class.
  10. Bringing some tea for my professor who is facing hard times in her life and seeing her smile.
  11. Another class cancelled for the whole week.
  12. Buying a super cute pocket coloring book to bring on long flights and boring events.

Some things I hope to accomplish the coming week (who am I kidding):

  1. Watch more anime because priorities.
  2. Listen to more music.
  3. Cook.
  4. Go to the gym. Or at least dedicate 10 minutes a day to exercising.
  5. Dress better (if the weather would just get warmer).
  6. Finish assignments (ughhhhhhhhhhhh).
  7. TRY to apply for some things because the first step is so hard and I still don’t know what I want.
  8. Paint and make some cards.
  9. Eat more noodles and pasta. Lunch and dinner were vague and college-student-like this week because of homework and everything. Examples:
    • 2 days of instant noodles
    • Random 30-minute rice, egg and vegetable lunch
    • Pita pizzas
    • Half a sandwich + half a fritter + 3 dates???
    • Granola bar + dates + Goldfish crackers??
  10. Continue being more confident in saying what I want to say (no matter how cheesy and cringe-y).

I’m missing out a bunch of stuff but thank you for making my week wonderful. Let’s stay positive and keep moving forwards!

Is it 2pm yet?

The story of how we came to listen to 2pm. It was an extremely windy weekend morning when we volunteering at an event and one of our friends had his phone plugged into his iHome speakers.

He was playing Korean songs… There was Taeyang, Big Bang, GOT7, BTS, all the big names.

And then there was a catchy song with ‘da da da da da’. I leaned forward and asked him over the roaring of the wind, “What song is this?”

“Wooyoung!” he shouted back even though we were 5 feet apart.

“What?!”

“Wooyoung.”

Nope, never heard of him.

“Rose. Rose.”

“Um..” I heard ‘roast’. What kind of song is called ‘roast’? Pork roast or pot roast? LOL.

“2pm!”

Finally, a name I recognized. I nodded back.

Came back, googled Wooyoung, and voila!

We like this song. A lot.

Also 2pm’s I’ll Be and My House. That’s what we’ve been listening to. And Never Ever by GOT7 because we all need a dash of Jinyoung, a pinch of JaeBum and a sprinkle of Jackson in our lives haha. You?

Musical thoughts

I was browsing through some music videos and jokingly mentioned that I should’ve learned to play the bass so that I could stand around and twang a few strings. It might even have saved me all the trouble of taking acoustic guitar lessons with a guy who wasn’t qualified at all. “Guitar Center has, used bass guitars at a great price!” My friend piped in. I’m not underestimating bassists by any means. I really admire how cool they look when they have those basses in their hands. I’ve been thinking of picking up the guitar over summer, just because I love music and I want to learn a different type of creative arts.
