It’s Exhausting Being ARMY – and other k-pop updates…

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for them. To be adding some of the biggest stadiums in the world, thereby doubling and tripling their usual attendees? And no doubt they will set out.

But then the other part of me is like… What? Back to North America? Again? And tickets go on sale March 1st? YOU MEAN TICKETS GO ON SALE A WEEK FROM NOW? Are you kidding me? What do you want from me? Let me rest! LET ME LIVE!!!

Seriously – I know I complain about main stream artists taking forever to release some new content but BTS has us running around like chickens with our heads cut off! But I shouldn’t complain because it keeps life interesting! Will I get tickets? I might try but I’m not holding my breath. Of the two cities closest to us as far as short-haul flights, I’ll be doing a lot of traveling around that time. I may try to get a pair and let my husband go with our daughter. I want him to experience the energy of a BTS concert. It’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. It’s truly euphoric!

I’ve been listening to MONSTA X’s We Are Here album a lot since it was released earlier this week. There are a lot of gems in this one but one song I’ve recently fallen in love with is Play it Cool ft. Steve Aoki. I’m wondering if they will create a music video for it – I hope they do!

Finally, I didn’t think I could do it and unfortunately standard tickets sold out fast leaving high reseller prices for P1 and P2 tickets. Yet I still managed to get Offical Platinum P3 seats. I actually monitored it until the prices dropped. Then picked up 3 tickets within my budget. And maybe one day I’ll understand exactly what Official Platinum tickets are other than a marketing ploy.

So we’re going to see Blackpink’s In Your Area World Tour! Woohoo! The tickets come with free digital download of some new songs they will have before the concert date.


Random Musings

My Husband

Yesterday I wrote about our outing with my daughter and her friend to watch BTS Love Yourself in Seoul.

I wanted to mention how great my husband is. He was not into k-pop like my daughter and I have been but as of last year, he’s been getting more and more into select songs. And even though he does not love all BTS songs he likes a good amount to really get into who BTS are and their story behind their success.

In fact, he’s able to tell who’s singing what part in Answer: Love Yourself better than I can!

The point is I married a man who has a very open mind. He is not closed off to new things and at the end of the day, he’s been so supportive with our passion for k-pop. When I complain to him about the negative comments and attitudes I’ve received since falling into k-pop, he’s been extremely understanding.

He even said, “Through your struggles I’ve realized I’ve been through the same things you have been through all my life… with my love for country music. Except yours is harsher because some of the remarks are very racist.”

2019 K-pop Concerts

I’m still waiting to hear if Blackpink will make a stop in my city since North America is listed on their first World Tour.

I did just find out Sunmi is stopping by in a couple of months though it looks like tickets have yet to sell for our location. Keeping fingers crossed because I would love to see Sunmi live!

I’m also hoping for MONSTA-X. Though… I don’t know if I could deal with all the nakedness Wonho and Shownu seems to always showcase. Just not into it. Though it did gain Kim Seok-jin’s approval

What My Web Stats Say About My Readership…

It appears a lot of you like looking at photos of Namjoon and Jungkook! 🙂

And this, everyone, is BTS…

From the 2019 Golden Disc Awards…


Even though these are GIFS, I can just hear how loud Jin is. Also see how Taehyung slips back and away when the interviewer suggest him and Jin should kiss each other on the cheek. LOL!

Seriously – Why are they like this? But we love them like this.
