K-pop has music that’s just as good and worthy of a listen as your favorite Western artists’ songs.
The K-pop industry is on a whole other level—from scouting and training potential idols in singing, dancing, and sometimes rapping to producing bops complete with coordinated concepts, stage costumes, and choreography. It’s pretty different from the typical Western music scene we’ve all been ...

Things Every Titas of K-pop Went Through

For someone who has been a K-pop fan since 2009, I’ve witnessed how the Korean wave continuously stayed on our shores and how it blossomed from the 2nd generation of K-pop Idols to the 3rd generation. And before we can even enjoy social media and live-streaming today, we had a hard time fangirling back then and here, I’ve listed the struggles only Titas of K-pop can relate to.

1. Dealing with a slow internet connection

For some reason, the internet back then was significantly slower than it is today. Youtube videos take too long to load and watching your favorite Korean music show online requires you to dwell on the never-ending buffering that the slow internet connection gives. Patience is a virtue, sis!

2. Downloading k-pop songs

Before we can even enjoy the existence of Spotify, the only way to revel in our favorite k-pop songs multiple times is to have them downloaded or sometimes, you have to buy the physical album first and have the songs ripped from the CD. The struggle is real, I know!

3. Your favorite k-pop group just don’t visit your country

Since K-pop is still not popular in the country back then, when your favorite K-pop group announces world tour, there’s a zero probability that you will get to see your bias in the flesh because Philippines is not always a part of their tour. It’s seriously heartbreaking, tbh!

4. Buying a merch is a rough quest

Few years ago, K-pop was not as popular than it is now, so there are only few k-pop shops online who ship merchs in the Philippines but when they do, the shipping fee is way too expensive and sometimes they cost more than the merchandise itself. But now, you can drop by Divisoria or anywhere in Manila and you’ll find a k-pop merch at a cheap price! Imagine!

5. Watching videos without subtitles

The struggle is real when the most anticipated appearance of your idol on a TV show comes out only to find out that there are no subtitles! So you just end up waiting for someone to upload the subtitles and for the extreme level, you find time in learning the Korean language and wish to speak Korean so you can watch in peace. To become a fan might be one of the most challenging roles to play but believe me when I say that it is just one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

With the month long suspension, I see most people tweeting and posting on their stories for suggestions on what to do and since we are promoting the act of staying home as much as possible as it could be the best preventive measure, I figured I should share my top 5 favourite kdramas to watch that I honestly think are a bit underrated so here they are:

Reply 1988 - This 20 episode cheesy, family drama will give you nostalgic vibes while also making you laugh and cry at the same time. It’s definitely my top one that I find myself recommending it to all of my friends and basically ANYONE; it’s just really worth the watch! - Starring Hyeri, Ryoo Joon-Yeol, Ko Gyung-Pyo, Park Bo-Gum and Lee Dong-Hwi

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo - Now this drama is everything I could ever ask a period drama to be. The plot, the cast (especially the princes) and the OST were exceptional that just hearing a single song from it gets to me up to this point. And yes, I am also still waiting for a season 2 like the rest of the world. - Starring Lee Joon-Gi, IU, Kang Ha-Neul, Hong Jong-Hyun, Nam Joo-Hyuk, Baekhyun, Ji Soo, and Yoon Sun-Woo

Cheese in the trap - I believe this is one of the most intriguing and interesting kdramas out there considering the male lead involved and how one would witness the development of each character. It was full of thought-provoking moments yet also cute fluffy romance partnered up with indie flavoured OST that I just really enjoyed. But just a warning if you do watch this: you might feel an intense second male lead syndrome!! - Starring Park Hae-Jin, Kim Go-Eun, Seo Kang-Joon, Lee Sung-Kyung, Nam Joo-Hyuk and Park Min-Ji

Who Are You: School 2015 - Does the name Nam Joo-hyuk ring a bell? How about Yook Sungjae? And also the lovely Kim So-hyun? Need I say more? I think those are enough reasons to get you to watch this drama, but if you are looking for a sweet high school romance combined with an amazing mysterious plot and phenomenal acting then this kdrama is the best choice. - Starring Kim So-Hyun, Nam Joo-Hyuk, Yook Sungjae, Lee Pil-Mo and David Lee

Cheer Up! (Sassy Go Go) - Initially one might think that this kdrama is just your typical high school drama set in a competitive school but it will truly win over your heart with its lighthearted romance, great chemistry between the characters, witty and funny lines while perfectly capturing the enthusiasm of the youth that you’d really find yourself cheering for each character. - Starring Jung Eun-Ji, Lee Won-Geun, Chae Soo-Bin, Cha Hak-Yeon and Ji Soo

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
