Not-So Daily Kpop Challenge (and not in 2019) – Part X

[30 Day K-Pop Challenge 2019]

Question #22: Favorite picture of your favorite k-pop group

from BTS Summer Package 2019

I wouldn’t say this is my ultimate favorite group photo of BTS but it is in the top 10. I love how the stylists played with a modern-day version of the traditional Korean robe (hanbok) in the Summer Package 2019 photoshoot. They look both elegant and slick! BTS certainly has done a wonderful job promoting their culture. While I am not new to the Korean culture myself, it has still been fun doing a deeper dive and learning more. Though I admit, my favorite part has been eating more Korean food.

Because, well… food. I love food!

Not-So Daily Kpop Challenge 2019 – Part IX.ii (continued into 2020)

[30 Day K-Pop Challenge 2019]

So…. I know it’s 2020 but I started this in 2019. It was supposed to be completed in 2019 but… I ran out of time! I’m not sure what to do with the title now but oh well!

Question #20: Favorite picture of your guy k-pop bias

From BTS’ Speak Yourself Tour.

Well – the thing with J-Hope, the photos do NOT do the man justice. Trust me. Trust all who stan this man. The above, however, is what I would say to be one of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen of the one and only Jung Ho-seok.

What makes him my bias, though? The man is a genius. I feel this way for the entire BTS rapper line, though. In fact, each members have their own unique talents to add to the whole BTS assemble. J-Hope, for me, is a powerhouse. The man can rap, sing, compose, write lyrics and DANCE! My full respects go to Mr. Jung.

Bonus photo from their Cypher 4 performance. It’s Cypher 4. And J-Hope. It’s J-Hope performing Cypher 4. Need I say more?

Question #21: Favorite picture of your girl k-pop bias

Soyeon from (G)I-dle’s LION photoshoot

Yeah. On the same line of artistic geniuses, here’s another one!

Known as the leader or (G)I-dle, Jeon So-Yeon is also the main rapper, center, singer and main dancer. That’s not all, though. She also writes most (if not all?) of (G)I-dles’ music. Her well-rounded talents and skills is making her the talk of the industry. I certainly feel she deserves the praise. In fact, I hope she continues down this path of recognition.

She is definitely not the first female idol to have such fierce talents but I think she’s breaking a lot of barriers here. For the future of other female kpop idols, she could possibly be paving the way!

Golden Disk Awards 2020 – How to watch all BTS performances

Are any of you frustrated with no YouTube official performances being posted? If you’re like me, you also want high quality, legit performance videos if your favorite k-pop group, right?

Well, I’m happy to say I did find it through JTBC’s official VLive app – which you can watch on your desktop. These are just for BTS, though I may try and sort through additional performances from other groups later.

BTS – ‘INTRO’+’Skool Luv Affair’

BTS – ‘Boy With Luv’

BTS – ‘Mikrokosmos’

And the epic BTS as Greek Gods VCR-ment: BTS – ‘Dionysus’

I believe that is all of their performances but let me know if I have missed any.


BTS Dance Practice – MMA 2019's Extended "Dionysus" Performance

As mentioned. I loved the extended performance of Dionysus (ft. N.O) at the 2019 MMA’s. It’s gone down, for me and many ARMY, as an epic choreography.

I’m happy to see BANGTANTV release the dance practice. It gives a more focused overview of everything that went down, especially during the extended bits.
