KCON 2014 Concert Special: Teen Top

I'm sorry I resent you Teen Top, really it's not your fault what happened. It's not your fault that I decided to take pictures of your set even thought I don't love you and then my battery died mid-way through GDragon's set making me miss his amazing photo op when he came and sat down mere feet away from me. 

Super Power Team: UNITE!

I guess it was only a matter of time before one of the hottest male leads, Lee Jong Suk, was paired with Kdrama darling Park Shin Hye. Right? Right? Who's with me? 

Hrm. I know both actors are pretty beloved, but for some reason, they leave me a little ho-hum. I like Lee Jong Suk, from the bits of dramas I've seen him in, but he takes some roles I just don't want to see. It's like I want to like him, I want to love him as much as everyone else, but there hasn't been that 'must see' role for me.

KCON 2014 Concert Special: BTS

Huh-Huh-Huh--We are Bullet Proof! Heh. They may be bullet proof--but they are not GDragon proof. While I wouldn't wish GD away fro anything, I can't help but feel bad for my Bangtang Boys. Originally set to headline against Girls Generation, the boys were bumped down the ladder once GDragon signed on. 

A Nodame By Any Other Name...Still Stinks.

Newest word on this drama, a remake of Nodame Cantabile is that it has been renamed Cantabile Tomorrow. Maybe it should have been renamed The Show That Would Not Die. I had hoped that the drama, which kept letting lead actresses slip through it's fingers time and again, would also just drift away, never to be heard from again.

Through the Looking-Glass: A Newbie Leaps into the K-Experience

Hello Everyone! I'd like you to meet Crazy's new best-y Molly in KDramaland. (Yes, this is the same Molly who saved me from the evil sign demons during the CNBlue part of KCON.) Molly in KDramaland has kindly agreed to be a periodic contributor here at Crazy for Kdrama. I hope you like her just as much as I do! Take it away Molly....

KCON 2014 Concert on Sunday, August 10
When I think of KCON, it’s in vivid sensory snapshots – standing on a Los Angeles sidewalk in the hot summer sun waiting to register; the dizzying effect of thousands of people swarming around me once I entered the event; a high-pitched girl’s voice exclaiming about seeing G-Dragon in person and her squealing friends; brilliant strobe lights and deafening cheers as the voice over the loudspeaker proclaims that the concert is about to start; my adrenaline pumping as energetic BTS takes the stage and starts to dance; a swaggering G-Dragon sitting down on the stage only a few feet in front of me, singing and interacting with the audience. (See one-minute video of this AWESOME experience with G-Dragon at end of article.)

More T.O.P For Me! Tazza 2 Is On It's Way

So do you think I need to watch the first Tazza to fully appreciate and/or understand the upcoming movie Tazza 2? Or do you think it's like Friend 2 where I was able to get the gist of what was going on by reading a well written synopsis? 

I'm hoping it's door #2 as, I love T.O.P and all, but I'm not sure I want to invest that much into what is just the equivalent of squeeee porn.

KCON 2014 Concert Special: GDragon

Originally, I had a plan. A good plan. A plan that made total sense at the time. My favorite moments at KCON, my favorite photographs taken all happened at the same time. GDRAGON--serious swoon time ladies. So wouldn't it make sense to leave it until the very end? Make it be my last KCON post? Apparently GD had some different ideas.
