A Psychologist answering about the Kpop Phenomenon

How a psychologist answered when asked about the phenomenon of “fangirls” in the Korean entertainment world?

A psychologist said: “Do not underestimate the children who chase Korean celebrities, their hearts are purer than others, they love sincerely, they will do their best to overcome difficult obstacles, language and cultural barriers. They symbolize peace, they do not discriminate based on race, they make friends with people who have similar interests from various countries, they are more passionate and warm compared to others. They do not betray the people they like with ease, they are persistent and do not give up easily. They are more powerful than others, because when they love Korean stars, they experience something never experienced in his life. They are all fragile children, easily moved, and easy to cry for a long time because of an incident.

Through investigation, most of them understand the significance of gratitude. Their way of thinking is different from others, they are not easily carried away by love, they never thought to do bad things, and their criteria when looking for a mate is very high, in addition to appearance, personality is more important, so the marriage rate is not high. Memory level they have is very good, they can easily remember the korean lyrics they do not understand, and their coordination ability is also very strong. Most of them are cheerful children, not the type to confine themselves. They also have very strong determination, they were able to survive and make efforts to buy something related to their favorite celebrities.

Summer Songs

What’s a summer song?
There are many opinions about this question. Most of the people say that a summer song is a song that got very popular during summer season, like just a hit song.
My definition of summer songs is very different.
A summer song should be a song that reminds you that it’s summer! It should give you the thoughts that you should have fun, that this season is fun and lively! For me, I think summer songs are the ones that make me imagine myself watching a fun performance on the beach in the middle of the day, or on some Hawaiian beach on a summer night, cool air playing with my hair while I’ll be dancing and having fun, feeling fresh! We’re sick of being stuck in the sad winter mood, we want to feel free! 🙂
I have some examples about summer songs and I really advise you to try them:
-Summer Paradise (Simple plan)
-Alright (Super Junior)
-Party (SNSD)
-3.6.5 (EXO)
-쩔어 (BTS)
-Wake Me Tonight (JYJ)
-View (SHINee)
-바래 (Ft island)
Well that’s all for now! Thanks for reading! And don’t be shy, comment anything you want!

EXOLOGY Chapter 1: The Lost Planet

As many of you know I’m a crazy EXO-L, I search for anything related to them to download it (technically I do it with every kpop group :p ). So as I was searching, I found their first ever solo concert from their world tour series EXOLOGY. And I said why not? Here I am writing to tell you about the great things I saw and unfortunately the thing that bothered me.
Well let’s start that the concert is fantastic. Since it’s in Seoul, more gadgets were available. Result? EXO had a lot of things to present. Cool costumes were available, like the wild ones in MAMA, the scholars ones in Wolf, or even the ones covered with the well known “Overdose” labyrinth, not forgetting the cute silver crowns in Peter Pan. Then we have the realistic stage. We have many blocks that go up and lift the members a bit higher than the stage in Love Love Love, the platform similar to a round table where D.O and Baekhyun sang Moonlight while the other members sat on chairs around it and did really cool dance moves. But we shouldn’t forget the nets that lifted most of them in the air in Into Your World (Angel) or the cute bicycles that also lifted them in the air in Peter Pan, giving the songs a more magical effect.
After that, we have the magnificent special stages. Whether it’s Sehun, Lay or Xiumin’s dance solo, Chanyeol’s drum session, Baekhyun’s version on piano of My Turn to Cry, Suho’s version of Beautiful, D.O’s Tell Me What Is Love, Chen’s rock song, Kai’s monologue Deep Breath (or like I call it, “the love psychopath monologue”) or Tao showing his exceptional talents in martial arts, EXO definitely nailed it.
And lastly the idea of having fun while chatting and playing with their fans make this concert an exceptional event no one would ever want to miss. I couldn’t stop laughing when they started a battle between EXO-K and EXO-M to impress a fan while dancing on major kpop hits like Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry or SNSD’s Gee and many more!
Unfortunately, there is one thing I didn’t like. If you watched the DVD, you’ll notice that the way the picture kept shifting was very annoying… they were trying to hide something but I noticed it. I counted the members and found out they were 11. Yes everyone, the concert was held before Luhan’s departure. It was very sad to see that despite the fact that he’s a part of this concert, producers worked hard to cut all his talking parts and zoom out the camera to avoid showing his face. Why? Because “they don’t want to hurt us”. Dear producers, by hiding him, you are hurting us 100000 times more! 😦 At least keep his parts as a farewell for the fans, or don’t show the concert at all!
I conclude that despite the disappointing Luhan problem, I really enjoyed the concert (that I watched most of it in my music class :p ) (what? I was bored!), and now I’m waiting for the second chapter of EXOLOGY,  the Exoluxion which is definitely different than The Lost Planet, but no less greater.
Thanks for reading! Here are some pictures from the concert! 🙂 And sorry for the bad quality!

Birthdays

Like everyone here I love birthdays since it’s the only day when I get to be a little princess, and the only day when people care more (or pretend to care) about me. But there’s still some things bothering me about this “special” day.
Yesterday some idiots were having a bday party and were very loud and annoying (thanks a lot guys -_-), and I started saying that I don’t even open my mouth on my bday. And there was where it hit me.
Every year, I get invited to one of my dad friends’ bday dinner (which is 3 days after mine) and keep being told that the dinner is also for me, but all I do is cut the cake and receive a gift that has no sentimental value for me. As for the rest, they make me sit at the end of the table and ignore me while they have fun and speak whatever they want, and it’s ME who gets scolded for using WiFi cause I’m bored. I never got to celebrate my bday with my friends properly although I wish I can. As for the gift, I started thinking that it’s bought thinking that every girl would like it. But I’m different. Let me give you an example: last year I got clothes which were actually nice, but my friend sent me on Whatsapp a very well edited pic of Super Junior’s Heechul wishing me a happy birthday. I liked the pic more since my friend thought about the special things I like, showing that she cares. I’m not asking for Chanyeol’s version of EXODUS album (although I would’ve died to have it :p ) but a novel is enough since I’m addicted to books, or even accessories since I love wearing them. I might seem impolite writing this, but that’s what I think. When it’s someone’s birthday, please treat him a bit more special than the other days.
If my friends are reading this, thank you for being so caring and loving 🙂
Did I mention that EXO’s Lay celebrate his bday 14 days before mine? :p
Thanks for reading!!

Internet Binge: The Return of Superman * Texan In Tokyo * CutiePieMarzia

Nightsongs and Daydreams

Ohh, internet. You are a glorious time-waster. But can I help it when there’s such awesome content just waiting for me to gobble it up (usually in a 24+ hour marathon because I can’t bear to ration it out)? I do a lot of internet binging (which also means I don’t get a lot of writing done, so I’m trying to work on that particular vice), so I thought that I’d share what I’ve been binging on each week.

The Return of Superman

TRoS is a Korean reality show about men taking care of their children for 48 hours with no help from their wives. The kids are beyond adorable and the dads are endearing. It’s impossible for me to watch just one episode per sitting, and it’s a KBS show, which means that all the episodes on youtube are subtitled! (You can also watch it at KSHOWONLINE.)

Here’s…

A letter for You

My dear,
I really wished you could read this letter, but obviously you can’t. This letter will reveal what you are to me.
No words can explain how I felt when I first saw you. Hearing your name many times made me think of you as a show off, but everything changed the moment our eyes met. My heart started racing when I saw that beautiful sparkle you were trying to hide behind your expensive sunglasses. I thought that only your words were catchy, but it took me a year to realise that it was your stare that froze me and made my heart skip a beat. Since that day, I couldn’t stop thinking about you. You are the first thing I think about every morning when I open my eyes. You are the last thing I remember when closing my eyes.

I was first afraid of getting hurt. I was still holding a deep scar, thinking it will never be healed. But everything changed the moment you smiled at me. It felt like a warm blast of sunshine after a cold cold winter. But if I think about it, my heart was living in a winter, and I thought it will never end. You are like summer for me: colorful, lively and, well, fun!
You still think I’m just speaking without thinking but listening to me will make you understand.
Let me tell you about the times I was mad at the world with a heart full of ego, but your picture suddenly flashing in front of me made me cry shameful tears. You are now the only boy I never got mad at, no matter what you do, and never failed to make me smile.
Let me tell you about the times I met the person who rejected me, feeling peaceful instead of sad, because that scar in my heart was healed thanks to your kindness. You never failed to make me laugh, no matter how hard I cried or how angry I was, and that’s more than enough to me.
And let me tell you about the most important thing in all this “letter” I’m writing. I never knew what tears of joy are until you showed up. That night you sat under the starry night with your magnificent guitar in your hands, and played while singing, with the mates you call brothers, this sad but beautiful song like it was a lullaby. But it was more than just a lullaby. Every time I watch you sing it, I see an angel who changed my life, who lifted me up from the darkness of being broken. It was the day I realised that I was finally healed. I felt like a girl who found water after days of walking in the Sahara. I felt like a bird who, after years of being stuck in a cage, finally escaped and started flying to reach the skies.
So many other things make you precious and exceptional but my words will never be enough to describe them. You won’t read this letter but I don’t care. I promise,  one day we will meet and I will stand proudly in front of you. You won’t think I’m being ridiculous because you’re aware about how your kindness can make miracles, but instead you’ll do what’s blessed in you: smile.
Thank you for everything.
To ㅂ.ㅊ.ㅇ.
