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
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)
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)
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
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
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
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
Every fan convention experience that I go to is always a different experience, and each con has different things that make those particular experiences unique. This time around, aside from the massive Hall N- the Netflix Interactive Exhibit, I went with my sister, my cousin, my niece and one of her friends. This also meant that I was helping chaperone my niece and her friend … Continue reading The Kat’s Con Chronicles: Asia Pop Comic Con 2017
Ever since last year, I have been going to three major fan conventions that are held in my country- NexCon, ToyCon, and Asia Pop Comic Con.
Last year, I decided to “Disneybound” during NexCon and Asia Pop Comic Con.
I had a lot of fun going to those conventions last year, so this time around, I decided that it would be more fun if I cosplayed at all three conventions. Continue reading NexCon3- A Day Of Total Geekery
