The only things I cared about this year:
I knew Nice Guy was going to be crazy, but I didn’t think it was gonna be kerazy.
Someone said to me on Formspring that they noticed I’ve been reblogging a lot of Exo on Tumblr, and if that means I’m “back” into K-pop. I guess you can say that based on my K-pop activity as of late. I started watching dramas religiously mid-2009-ish onwards and while I still knew what happened to groups, I didn’t follow anyone intensely and then my energy for K-pop seriously took a hit in 2010 when 1) the dramas got even better and 2) DBSK split.
It’s May and maybe there will be an upswing of things in the second part of the year, but 2012 has been extremely disappointing in terms of drama quality and output. This seems to be the year of cable, which offers a healthy number of alternatives, but that’s not enough to take away the extremely bad taste that MBC, KBS, and SBS have left in my mouth thus far. It’s drama after drama of mediocrity and sometimes it’s even dipping into feces territory -_-
So there are a ton of dramas in the horizon that are in the midst of production, or at the very least, have casts and I thought I’d weigh in on what I think of them before they premiere.
…And guess what? The rest of 2012 ain’t looking too hot either. With that little to work with, reblogging awkward screencaps of half-blinking Kris and Hangeng occupying the same space, gifs of Kyungsoo choking on water, etc. seem necessary.
COME ON DRAMA GODS, THROW ME A BONE HERE.
These photos were taken by First Look and so fun. The MAMA Awards, while completely worthless and always a shitshow to watch, is always the biggest gathering of both the idols and the actors and actresses, and officially the best K-pop orgy event all year.
Ugh Song Joong-ki, you’re killing me.
I always start my Sunday mornings with Running Man. The cast gels really well with each other, and all my variety show favorites are in one place: Yoo Jae-seok, Ji Seok-jin, HaHa, Song Joong-ki. I totally have new appreciation for Song Ji-hyo, Gary and Gwangsoo. The only person I really dislike is Kim Jong-gook, and I’ve honestly disliked him ever since I got into Kpop and watched him in Xman. My dislike for him runs deep. He’s definitely one of those hyungs you would hate being the dongsaeng of, and he’s so angry and whiny all the time. I also really hate guys who are so insistence of their manhood and constantly feel the need to exert their masculinity, and Kim Jong-gook does all that to a motherfreaking fault. Can’t stand him.
I also love watching this show because this is one exceptionally well-dressed cast. Everybody dresses so well, even the older hosts! Sometimes, MC Yoo dresses nicer than I do. HaHa, Song Joong-ki and Song Ji-hyo are consistent favorites and I love seeing what they wear every week.
This week’s favorite is HaHa with a navy/black military blazer that goes so well with his glasses and his build, and Song Joong-ki’s amazing sweater with his crazy pom-pom hat and his bright red sneakers. Ji-hyo’s new haircut is bomb and so is her hat.
And this, just for kicks:
