Self-Care Friday (Week 2)

A lot has happened this week, not all of it great for the country, but some of it great for me. I bought tickets to see a kpop group, B.A.P, in Chicago in April. My friend N ended up getting a ticket, too, so we’ll go together. We’re also planning to go see SHINee in Toronto — hopefully we can get tickets! They go on sale next Sunday. And today, Friday, we’re headed out of town for another kpop concert (B1A4, for those of you playing at home).

Music Sundays: 스타쉽플래닛 (Starship Planet) – 사르르 (Softly)

Merry Christmas! This song is ridiculous and the music video adorable silly, but I still like it. There are a couple of singers in this video that I like, along with both boy groups.

I hope that Christmas is very good to all of you.

Also, a bonus! The 2013 Christmas song.

Music Sundays: SNUPER(스누퍼) – It’s raining

I haven’t really posted boy bands recently, so have a new(ish) group that I am a fan of. Snuper is a six member group from South Korea. This is their newest music video from their new mini album. The song is really upbeat, even though the video itself is kind of dark. It’s very boy band in ways that I just really love. Enjoy!
