BIGBANG on Weekly Idol, Finally!

Finallyyyy! After a long wait, BIGBANG on Weekly Idol! Seriously, after G-Dragon’s Weekly Idol appearance last 2013, I have been crying out for the whole group to be on the show. VIPs, our prayers have been heard!

They actually divided it into two episodes (Episodes 284- 285) which is a plus for us the fans. ūüėÄ Since the boys are already veterans, not just in the music industry but in variety shows as well, they made the whole show a lot more fun. I think the fans has not seen this side of BIGBANG in a while. They were goofy, happy and it was refreshing to watch, really.

Weekly Idol’s highlight is the “Random Play Dance.” They were basically doing their own thing, improvising a step just to get through it and forgetting their own song and¬†choreography.

Of course, I won’t forget how my bias, T.O.P was being so “Bingu.” He can shift from being¬†charismatic to I-forgot-I’m-an-idol image (in a funny way) real quick. My cheeks were actually hurting for smiling because of his craziness. It actually made me think about his military enlistment this coming February 2017. We won’t be witnessing his funny side for a while. Well, two¬†years is not that long hehe!

The whole crew prepared a lot. They were worried that they won’t get another golden chance like this. They made the boys do stuff that made them ask “Whyyyy?” From showing off Gwiyomi version 2.0¬†to dancing girl groups’ songs. Yes, everybody, these are treasures to be kept forever!

The last part had me cracking, they did the 2x speed version of “Bang Bang Bang!” As usual, T.O.P being T.O.P! He had the time of his life in this part. The boys, they were awesome as always. Just bringing laughter and creating great memories!

This is definitely a must watch! I had a wonderful time watching the boys. I will surely miss them and I am looking forward for more years to come and see BIGBANG complete again!

Korean drama is life.

Korean dramas are really popular right now. Many are fangirling over Song Joong Ki, Park Bo Gum, Lee Min Ho, Lee Jong Suk, and more good looking Korean celebrities that you can think of.

Whenever I watch K-dramas online, I usually see comments like “Oppa! I have an exam tomorrow, but I am here watching you.” Others say “I have class at 7 a.m. and it is now 3 a.m., staying up all night just to watch (insert K-drama title).” Some may say,¬†“This is the reason why I am still single. My standards are way too high,¬†because of Oppa!”¬†Or if you are watching an ongoing drama and you were not able to stop yourself from the temptation of click that Episode 1 and 2 button, you might say “A week of torture for the next episode.” Finally, if a drama ends, fans would go “My Thursdays and Fridays won’t be the same again (crying emoji).”¬†These are just a few of the examples that you may experience or encounter when you are into K-dramas.

“Once you enter, you can never leave,” is what we K-drama fans say to people who are wishing to ruin their lives (in a positive way? Hahaha) and give up social life and sleep. Imagine, you look forward to something every week, or if you have lots of friends who has the same interest you can’t wait to fangirl with them, hate on the girl who is flirting with the main Oppa or just simply bash the writer Unnie for rushing the drama and leaving out some characters.

Also, that “just one more episode and I’ll go to bed” is a BIG JOKE! I always say this to myself and end up finishing 2 more episodes, plus staring at the ceiling for another 30 minutes just to sink in those¬†scenes and ask “WHY IS THERE NO PREVIEW?!”¬†Patience is a virtue, honey.

Of course, we international fans, are really thankful that subbers exist. SUBTITLE¬†IS LIFE. But if you are brave enough to risk everything and confuse yourself with what’s happening… you can watch it RAW and re-watch it after the subtitled episode is out. Again,¬†Patience is a virtue.

Here’s to more K-dramas and bigger eye bags! Cheers!
