Heyo, Aegyo-chi here~! Finally I’m doing another blog, instead of always doing poems. XD You can’t turn away now, I’m pulling you into the “circle” of my imagination.
“Hello, my (stage?) name is Aegyo-chan and I’m a Kpop-a-holic.”
“Hello, Aegyo-chan,” echoed the strangers in the room.
I waited for them to ask me what the heck Kpop was, in which I’d simply put, It’s Korean pop music. They didn’t ask.
I peered deeper into the shadows. These people… with black or white t-shirts. What looked like names were on the backs of their shirts, and album titles or group names on the front. They had strange hats with rings in them, or potato bag clips on them. Wait…
My head fell down to my shirt, it had a group’s name on it too. I felt up at my head. Good grief there was a hat and rings were stuck right through the visor. Panic started at my heart and washed through my veins. “The disease has consumed me,” I choked under my breath, the room seemed to ring with the words. Then they rested on the people, and revealed them for what they were. Obsessed.
Ahahahahahahaha what the frick was that?! My blogs can never ever be serious, can they? Well, that was somewhat Kpop through my eyes. XD What really is Kpop though?
I never thought I would get into Kpop. I was Japanese music biased before Kpop, but one day, after watching a drama, I listened to the song Magnetic on YouTube, along with the dance practice and I was in.
Kpop honestly brought me to a new type of music entirely. A type of music English songs hadn’t introduced to me in 19 years. Kpop is so many things, and I know exactly where to begin. Different from group bands in America, the Kpop groups usually have a different bond, one that’s stronger than just friends or bandmates. They’re no less than family to each other and they treat their fans as such. Not that American bands aren’t, I’ve just seen a closer bond in Kpop bands then in some American ones. After all, they do live videos for their fans, live together for a period of time, do TV series, etc… along with practicing and shows. To entirely understand, you’d have to see for yourself. Their bonds put more meaning into the songs, more emotion when there’s a story behind it.
The music is passionate on a whole new level. Catchy songs, thoughtful words, incredible dance routines. Korean is an incredibly beautiful language, just like French but unique in it’s own way. The way the words sound are so gentle and smooth like a baby’s bottom. Easy enough to learn when you listen to Kpop 24/7. XD I just LOVE speaking different languages, including Korean! In case you haven’t noticed…
Now, why might you ask are people so addicted to kpop besides the reasons I have mentioned? Okay, I’m just going to come out and say it. These boys are… fine. They’re fine as heck, okay?! Don’t look down on me! Look at this face and tell me you haven’t fallen in love, tell me you haven’t forgotten that the world contains darkness–
Those dimples!! The light in his eyes!! hshvfgkrdshfjhrdusk,hfrek,gsugfjre You’re being sucked in, save yourself before it’s too late-!
*Sigh* I’ve come clean on my obsession/passion. You have something to hold against me now, to blackmail me with.
wELL! I’ll bet you weren’t expecting me to be a fan girl, mina. Actually, I’d be slightly surprised if you didn’t know with the amount of Asian pictures I post, the sidebar links and what I said in My First Date! blog… heh. Just so you know, looks aren’t everything. I pick my biases (favorite members) based on their personalities, thank you very much.
Ok, sorry you had to go through this post if you aren’t a fan girl/boy. XD Gomen. Thanks for sticking through this random kind-of-pointless blog~! You’ll thank me in the future if I get you into Kpop. Or not.
