It goes without saying that we live in a selfie obsessed time. I can’t speak for every country, but here in Korea, going anywhere (alone or accompanied) and taking dozens of selfies is pretty much the norm. So it wasn’t all that surprising when I came across a cafe whose entire mission is to satisfy or selfie cravings on a whole new level. CaFace has … Continue reading Selfie Lattes @ CaFace
The famous Korean pop artist known as 비 (Rain), has long since been my favorite music artist. I’ve been following his music since his debut back in 2002. Aside from him being insanely hot, I have always found him to be incredibly talented and ambitious. As an artist myself, I really admire his work ethic and devotion to improving his skills. There is no denying … Continue reading Bring On the Rain!
The stage production of “Nightmare Before Christmas the Musical” opened this past weekend at the Sangmyung Arts Center in Seoul. Complete with elaborate dance numbers, a live orchestra, and an accomplished cast of expats and Koreans, director Susan K.

The truth is, I’ve been listening to 신화 (Shinhwa) since I was a kid and completely fell in love with their … Continue reading The Legend Continues
As promised by Cube Entertainment, 4minute’s HyunA and B2ST’s 장현승 (Hyun Seung or JS) have released their anticipated 4 track collaborative mini album. I must say I was a little disappointed to discover that “Trouble Maker” is the only dance track on the album followed by three ballads that are quite forgettable in comparison. Trouble Maker The Words I Don’t Want to Hear (듣기 싫은 말) Time! (HyunA’s solo Feat. Rado … Continue reading Double Trouble
It seems that all our k-pop cuties are trading in their cutesy facades recently for a more mature look and Wonder Girls are no exception. Back from shooting their Teen Nick movie “Wonder Girls at the Apollo” and stepping away from their retro image, Wonder Girls have returned to Korea with a dark sleek sexy new look and of course a new album “Wonder World.” … Continue reading Wonder No More; The Girls are Back!
What’s a dragon without a little smoke right? Well, earlier this month k-pop star Kwon Ji Yong better known as G-Dragon and leader of boy band Big Bang, was taken in by authorities in Seoul for smoking marijuana. While I find the news to be a bit old, discussions are still forming about the topic and questions are still being asked. So, this is the 411. … Continue reading Puff the Magic G-Dragon
