Hello to old and new readers of this blog,
As you know, the Peach and Bagel have been looking for new writers to contribute to this article and being a Kpop fan myself, I jumped at the opportunity. Myself and some other new writers have joined the blogging team; I hope you continue to participate and express your opinions.
My blog name is ‘The Apricot’ to continue the food themed names. I first found out about kpop when I went on holiday to china for a month in the summer holidays. Whilst I was there visiting family, Super Junior M were promoting their mandarin version of ‘Super Girl’ on many variety programs. I loved how lively and good-humored they were although many were Korean (not to mention their hotness) and as you can guess, I have been a Kpop fan ever since.
Now, I check Korean Celeb and Kpop sites daily however misleading they are (Allkpop *cough) to see what the latest rumors and news are; I listen to new songs which have been released and watch any new reality TV program or K-drama. I have to admit, I am not an avid listener of the latest Kpop songs but much prefer to watch the latest Korean variety programs including ‘The Return of Superman’, ‘Running Man’ and ‘Weekly Idol’. I love the Korean and general Asian humor although it can be a bit exaggerated sometimes. I will be doing future posts about idols who are variety kings and queens as I feel idols who are ‘gag-dols’ are much more popular so please watch out for that!
Music wise, I feel as if I have a good general knowledge of the Kpop industry from all the things I learn from variety programs and music broadcasts. Readers, never fear, I do listen to a lot of Kpop, dare I say more than Mpop…
I hope you guys will get involved and comment on my posts… :) Happy Reading!
