Day 26: Your favorite cover of a k-pop song by another k-pop artist
Jang Jae In & Kim Ji Soo covered Seo In Young’s “Cinderella” during the final auditions for Superstar K2. I wasn’t familiar with the original song but I fell in love with what they did with it. So then I looked for the original version and, sorry to say, this cover is 100 times better than the original. Love their voices!
There’s a whole lot of awesome videos out there but I had to go with this one, Big Bang’s Haru Haru. The narrative, the aesthetics and just the overall treatment to the video was impressive. Also, Park Minyoung is an amazing actress.
Day 21: Your favorite picture of your girl k-pop bias
CL is gorgeous no matter what she does. Whether it’s a quirky cute pose or a swag-filled sexy look, she can pull it off easily. But this photo, or any photo from the Lonely promo, is just pretty. I love the clothes, I love the updo… CL jeil jal naga.
Day 19: Your favorite interview of a k-pop idol or group
The MTV EMA red carpet interview with Big Bang. This was just such a proud and shining moment. At this point, they didn’t even win yet… But just seeing them there on the red carpet at Belfast was just surreal.
Day 17: A k-pop idol you wish was your older sibling
Aigoo. Do I have to actually choose someone older than me? Or can I choose someone younger and just wish they were my older sibling? Coz I’m tellin’ ya, there are not a lot of idols older than me. It’s gonna be slim pickings.
I guess I have to go with Leeteuk. He’s like the oppa of all oppas. He’s gonna be the best older brother because he’s had years of experience taking care of 12 rowdy boys. And he actually is older than me. Hee!

And now like a dream, my heart in your embrace, is held still Without awakening for a single moment, I dream an endless dream
And now like breathing, if you were to always rest by my side If you were to always remain this way Nothing better nothing better than you Nothing better nothing better than you Nothing better nothing better than you
Day 15: A k-pop song that reminds you of someone you miss
Uhhh… There’s no k-pop song that reminds me of him because I wasn’t a fan of k-pop back when I knew him. I guess you can say this song is applicable to the relationship we once had between us. I’m over him and what I thought we once had. But like in the song, it might have been total fiction - a story I had written in my head. Maybe to him, we were nothing more than friends. My memories tell me otherwise, but we’ll never know for sure.
Super Junior’s “No Other (너 같은 사람 또 없어)” is a light and fun song that just doesn’t get old. More than anything, the music video is so adorable with just the right touch of aegyo. Never fails to put a smile on my face.
