The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents: 2021 Kim Myung Soo Ontact Fanmeeting-Remember Us

As many fans of male Kpop groups and male actors can attest to, there is one thing that we dread the most, although we do know that it’s something that must be done by every Korean male citizen- mandatory military enlistment. It is pretty hard to say goodbye to those we are so accustomed to seeing almost daily, especially as they will be gone for … Continue reading The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents: 2021 Kim Myung Soo Ontact Fanmeeting-Remember Us

The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents: Open the Rolling Hall #1 (Onewe, W24 & D.Coy)

Lately, there have been a lot of different offerings when it comes to online concerts- free streaming concerts that are either official (like BTS’ Bang Bang Con) or fan created ones, past concerts that are available on VLive (usually paid in the VLive+ options), and upcoming paid concerts online (such as the Beyond Live concerts on VLive). With all these new choices of watching a … Continue reading The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents: Open the Rolling Hall #1 (Onewe, W24 & D.Coy)

The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents: Golden Child 1st Concert: Future & Past (YouTube Livestream)

After getting into Infinite last year, I knew that I was definitely going to end up checking out other Woolim artists as well. I do like Lovelyz and Rocket Punch, but the other Woolim group I ended up falling for pretty hard was Golden Child. I was curious in them especially as Daeyol is quite literally Sungyeol’s younger brother, but after listening to their songs, … Continue reading The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents: Golden Child 1st Concert: Future & Past (YouTube Livestream)

The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents: Ode To You in Manila

One of the many Kpop groups that I got into last year was Seventeen, partly because a co-worker of mine kept on suggesting that I try listening to them. And sure enough, just a few seconds into watching “Don’t Wanna Cry”, I was hooked. Several music videos, “unhelpful guides” to Seventeen on YouTube, VLive Videos, and Weekly Idol videos later, I realized that this group … Continue reading The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents: Ode To You in Manila

The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents:2020 Kim Myung Soo Come With Me Fan Meeting in Manila

To be honest, I couldn’t quite believe it when they announced last year that Infinite’s L or Kim Myung Soo would be having a fan meeting in Manila on January 12, 2020, at the New Frontier Theater (the same venue where I watched Gfriend last year). At that point in time, I was very much back into Kpop, and Infinite had already stolen my heart … Continue reading The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents:2020 Kim Myung Soo Come With Me Fan Meeting in Manila

The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents: Go Go Gfriend in Manila 2019

This year, as readers of this blog can tell by now, has been the year in which I finally got back into K-pop full time. However, last August 25, I was able to fulfill a little bit of a dream that I’ve had ever since I got into the Asian pop music scene many years ago- I was finally able to see a group that … Continue reading The Kat’s Kpop Experience Presents: Go Go Gfriend in Manila 2019

The Kat’s Con Chronicles: Asia Pop Comic Con 2018

Every year, I make it a point to attend at least one fan  convention. This year, so far, Asia Pop Comic Con is the only one I have attended as of late. This year, aside from the usual Hall M (Marvel) and Hall N (Netflix booth), they upped the ante by bringing in Hall D (Disney);  and celebrity guests such as Finn Jones from “Iron … Continue reading The Kat’s Con Chronicles: Asia Pop Comic Con 2018

Starting today, dozens of fans of pop-culture are celebrating their favorite fandoms at Asia Pop Comic Con, one of the biggest pop-culture fan conventions that happens annually in Manila, Philippines. I have been attending Asia Pop Comic Con since it began, and since then I have eased my way into cosplaying.

The Kat’s Guide: A Quick Guide to “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy (Movie + Books)

For most fans of the fantasy genre, whether it be in literature or cinema, there is no denying that JRR Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy is the best of the genre. In the realm of fantasy literature, this epic story defined it and influenced authors who would go on to create epic works of fantasy of their own; and in the realm of … Continue reading The Kat’s Guide: A Quick Guide to “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy (Movie + Books)

The Kat’s Cosplay Chronicles: Pinkie Pie

For Halloween of this year, I decided to go all out, and decided to cosplay as Twilight Sparkle from a new favorite show of mine, “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”. This time around, for another costume party, I decided to go as Pinkie Pie (Andrea Libman),  from the same show. I decided to go as Pinkie Pie as she is the second character that … Continue reading The Kat’s Cosplay Chronicles: Pinkie Pie
