Spontaneous Saturday

It’s Labor Day weekend and I have been scheduled all three days to work. School starts up for me on Tuesday, and here I am with no vacation before it happens. I guess I better just enjoy the pay check once it comes in. The good side; I’m waiting for my ride home, so that means there’s open time for me, which means I can get Spontaneous Saturday done and maybe a few reviews! And I cannot wait to get to Mino’s review for his solo MV release for 걔 세(I’m Him), which you should check out if you haven’t yet.

Anyway, there’s about, like, three things that are probably interesting to talk about for this week’s Spontaneous Saturday, and all involving relationships.

First off, SM is just in the spot light this year, especially for dating. I have no problem with Sulli and Choiza’s relationship. I support all idols dating no matter who their special person may be! However, I’d be lying if I said that this one wasn’t a shocker. I mean, I know there were warning signs everywhere, which they just kept shutting down. Just them being linked to each other really surprised me. I think it was because of the age gap, and the fact that, I don’t know, they’re just an odd couple and them being coupled together never really crossed anyone’s mind. Sulli is just full of aegyo, and then… there’s Choiza. You have to admit that this relationship is an oddball. BUT, even if we find it odd, they find it special, and if you support either of them, then you’ll accept them and send congratulations their way.

The next news piece I saw was G-Dragon’s Instagram ALS ice bucket challenge. Apparently there were two different videos floating around of G-Dragon’s ice bucket challenge (and I give props to him for having challenged the Big 3). The other video, which of course was removed, was of him challenging his “dear Kiko”. Again, there was a link between him and Kiko for awhile as well, but as all idols tend to do, the rumors were shut down. I don’t really know who Kiko is, but I did look her up. Anyway, not much to say about this one. It’s not even that big of a shocker since it wasn’t as blown up as other dating reports usually are. The only thing we have to say is, LAY OFF THE IDOLS,  SASAENG FANS! How dare you hack into G-Dragon’s account?

And finally, the relationship news that took the spot light from these two is SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong and his abuse of his former girlfriend. It was shocking to me because Kim Hyun Joong just has this image of a softy. But I guess I should have remembered the number rule of judgment; never judge a book by its cover. I also feel bad for the girl because if it is true, she is getting so much backlash from fans because they want to protect their oppa. And if it isn’t true… well we’ll just leave it at that. Here’s to hoping that things end quickly and preferably as painless as possible for both parties. Abusive relationships are a touchy topic.

And just a random topic that happened awhile back, but we hadn’t been able to touch on yet; Kemy’s diss track on Park Bom. I’ll admit that I was fired up with anger when I saw this. I didn’t watch or listen to it on YouTube, but I did read the translations. Even if what Kemy rapped about has some truth to it, this was so not acceptable, and I can’t imagine that the Korean culture would approve of this either. One, Park Bom is much older, so what happened to respect your elders? Two, Park Bom is a senior to this girl; what happened to respect the seniors? I don’t know. This was just so disrespectful in all sorts of aspects, and I still get mad thinking about it. This was such a cheap move too! I kind of feel bad for the members, but not really because I don’t know if they’re in support of this diss track or not. Oh, and one more thing. From what I’ve been reading, apparently this shouldn’t even be called a diss track because diss battles are really supposed to take part among rappers, and last time I checked, Park Bom isn’t a rapper. So is this a cry-for-attention-because-I’m-want-to-be-popular-no-matter-what track? Ugh. Frustration to the maximum. This just really disgusts me because I hold respect high on my list of personal qualities. And to the company, you guys are what frustrate and disappoint me the most! “It was only a diss track; we didn’t expect this kind reaction from fans.” Yeah, totally. Let’s just diss one of the biggest names in KPOP because no one is going to say anything about it.

I’m sure there’s a lot more I could have talked about, and I may regret it later, but this is all I can think of at the moment. Share your thoughts on these topics down below in the comments!

Shuffle It Sunday

Alright, for our lack of posts, we apologize. Finals are just around the corner and we’ve just become a lot more busier than we expected. However, hopefully we can catch up this week with a Throwback Thursday, Flashback Friday, and get Spontaneous Saturday going.

Anyway, enjoy the songs below and I hope you all find something new to listen to.
