Korean artists: checklist February

I cannot believe it has been 6 months since I came to Korea! Let’s see which artists me and my friends have seen in the past few months:

To start of with some big names:

  • PSY – I am so happy so have seen him performing! My god, this man has so much energy and such a charisma! Ten seconds after he appeared on stage the whole stadium was already jumping up and down.
  • Yiruma –  His Christmas concert ‘Picture Me’ was magical. It was such a special experience and while he was playing River flows in You I just couldn’t stop crying.
  • BTS – okay Rap Monster wasn’t there, but still… BTS… was amazing!
    Those fanchants just make me feel proud…

 

  • Sechskies – the feels 😥 I felt so honored to be able to see them live on the Busan One Asia Festival… They are Hallyu legends! And their fanclub YellowKies was simply the best! Look at all those yellow light sticks!

  • In Suni – what a woman! Love her powerful voice and she was also the only person who came off the stage to greet and interact with the fans.
  • BAP – front seats baby!
  • Girls’ Generation (SNSD) – It was great seeing Lionheart, but what really got me going was Gee! Can’t believe that I was able to hear it live once again (memories of SM Town in Paris~~~~)

Let’s see… then there was also Red Velvet, Girls Day, B1A4, Block B, I.O.I, Apink and Infinite.

That’s it for today! I will try to keep you guys updated! ^^

Crayon popping in Sardinia

A few weeks ago I traveled Sardinia (Italy) by scooter. Our little Berty – yes, we named the scooter – brought us to such wonderful places!  I had never been to Sardinia and I had never ridden a scooter, but it was a great experience. ❤ Sardinia is simply so beautiful! Those beaches, those mountains! The colour of the water, the warm sun, the good food,…

As it was my first time riding a scooter, I couldn’t resist making a Crayon Pop video parody while wearing that funny helmet. My boyfriend and I filmed the video by the side of the road while taking a rest, so we did not prepare anything beforehand. We couldn’t even play the music. That’s why the choreo is pretty random and the ‘ group members’ make quite some synchronization mistakes… But we had so much FUN while making the video! 😀 So I still feel pretty happy with the result.

 

So here it is… My (very short and very unprofessional) impromptu Crayon Pop “bar bar bar” parody!!!

New theme!

Today I decided to get a new theme for this blog. I’ve been using the Pachyderm theme for the past few months and I got so many nice responses because of it. Yet I felt like I wanted some change.

I went with the Sela theme this time, but I’m not sure yet whether I’m completely satisfied. It isn’t as cute as my previous theme but the colours are brighter and I think it looks a bit nicer like this.

What do you think about it?

 

JYP parody against domestic violence

Hey everyone!
I hope you all had a lovely Monday! Here in Belgium, mother nature decided to play around a bit. I’ve seen blue sky, grey clouds, sun, rain and even hail!

Today I wanted to share a wonderful video with you. Most kpop addicts must know JYP’s “Who’s your mama”, right? My apologies to the fans, but I don’t like this song. Now don’t get mad at me, but let me explain first.
I actually love the rythm and the awesome vibe, but I don’t like the lyrics and the music video. I enjoy listening to JYP’s music while working out and “Who’s your mama” has a really great beat and is super catchy.
But seriously… this time it’s just too much. The way the song objectifies women is not okay for me.

BUT… that’s not what this post is about! No, the wonderful video I want to share is not JYP’s music video!

I found a lovely “Who’s your mama” parody and you should really check it out! The lyrics got changed and some sketches were added in order to raise awareness of domestic violence in Korea. As in most countries, this issue is still a bit of a taboo. But government and several NGO’s are trying hard to raise awareness of this problem and establish shelters and group homes for victims.

09_policy_06The government also has emergency hotline centers for women who are victims of violence, including victims of domestic violence. The “1366” hotline offers counselling, protection and emergency services. According to UN Refugee Agency the centers help approximately 160,000 victims of all types of violence per year. The 1366 centers also provide interpretation services in eight languages in addition to Korean and a separate national 1577-1366 hotline that serves migrant women exclusively.

Anyway, press play, watch the parody and support this great initiative!

 

In the meanwhile, I will do my cardio warm-up and listen to JYP’s rythm without getting annoyed by the lyrics 😉

No more water polo for girls in Belgium

 


Just venting my frustration…

The Belgian Swimming Federation (KBZB) just forbade mixed teams in water polo youth competitions. But in teeny-weeny Belgium, most swimming clubs don’t have enough girls to form a full all-female team! That means that those girls – formerly playing in mixed teams – are no longer allowed to participate in competitions! 

Their reason? They want “to protect the integrity of the girls” because the “physiological differences” would become to big and this would pose problems. This really made me think of the recent debate concerning girls’ dress code in schools.  ⇒ The guardian  Continue reading
