We’re barely a week into March and already I feel like my poor fangirl heart is about to explode. Between the overwhelming number of K-Pop comebacks that have already happened since the beginning of the month, and the number of comebacks I’m looking forward to, it’s kinda hard to imagine how I’m going to survive the coming weeks. Of course, being the devoted fangirl I am, I’m determined to muster my strength and soldier on as best I can. (Though it might not hurt to keep a defibrillator on standby, just in case.)
Actually, I’m not sure even a defibrillator will save me from the teasing Monsta X has just started. HOLY FLIP! We’re only 1 day into this nonsense and already I feel like I’m dying! Of course there’s a very good reason for my wildly beating heart and sudden lack of breath and his name is Minhyuk.
OH SWEET CHEESE AND CRACKERS!
It seems so fitting that the final chapter to The Clan series is titled “Beautiful” as there isn’t a better word in the world to describe this first pair of photos. Seriously! Who knew glittery sparkles could be so darn lethal? Now I’m left wondering what the next 6 sets of photos will be like and honestly, I don’t think I’m ready! Just imaging the release of Hyungwon’s photos makes me shiver in excitement. And I.M’s? (Oh help!) Kihyun’s? (AUGH!) Jooheon’s? (EEEP!) Wonho’s? *SWOON* Shownu’s!?! OH CRAP! *falls over dead* I feel like counting down the days until March 21, is like counting down the days to my death. But really, that’s okay. After all, what makes life more worth living than the daily dying over a bunch of beautiful biases?
Speaking of biases… I have to give mad props to GOT7 for stopping my heart on a daily basis. The steady release of photos and album guides and track lists has done a fine job of turning me into a sobbing mess of a fangirl. (Though most of those tears have been shed over the fact that Youngjae continues to try to mess up my bias list and I can’t make him stop!)
At least GOT7’s teasing is coming to an end, as Flight Log: Arrival and the “Never Ever” MV are both scheduled to drop on the 13th. Of course then we’ll have comeback stages to deal with but for now, I’m just going to ignore that fact and instead adopt the Scarlett O’Hara mentality as I remind myself that “tomorrow is another day.”
While certain bias groups may have snatched a good bit of my attention, I haven’t been so distracted as to overlook some of the other K-Pop comebacks headed our way. Romeo, in particular, has caught my attention with all the teasing surrounding their 4th mini album, Without U. Both the EP and MV are scheduled to drop in the next day or so and I’m so ready! The trailers for the MV sound great, which means I’m all kinds of excited for its release!
I’m also looking forward to Eric Nam’s collaboration with Somi as it marks the first track (of who knows how many) to drop in Nam’s newest project, “Spring Note.” The project itself is a series of collaborations between Nam and various artists, all of which will be released each spring. This first track, “You, Who?,” is set to drop on March 9 and I can’t wait to give it a listen!
I know I give a lot of attention to K-Pop teasers and comebacks which isn’t fair to the drama lovers out there so let’s take a second to talk about OCN’s upcoming time-traveling, murder mystery, thriller, Tunnel.
I have to admit, I was a little unsure as to whether or not I’d be watching this drama but the more trailers I watch, the more excited I am for it to start airing. Will it live up to my expectations? Who knows? But I’m certainly not opposed to giving it a try! (Especially not if it means I get to see Choi Jin Hyuk being a hard-nosed, time-traveling cop. *squee*)
I will admit, I was a bit disappointed when I learned VIXX’s N’s negotiations with this drama fell through but the more I think about it, the more convinced I am that things may be better this way. As much as I love N, I’m not sure he’s ready to step into such a heavy role. At the same time, I can’t deny that I’m very much looking forward to seeing Lee Yoo Young make her first drama appearance. Having won multiple awards for best new actress in 2015, I have high hopes for her and am interested to see how she brings this new character, a professor of criminal psychology, to life. Tunnel is scheduled to begin airing on March 25 and I’m so ready!
With so much going on in the world of Hallyu, it’s sometimes a bit hard to keep up but that doesn’t keep me from trying! From K-Pop comebacks to upcoming dramas, there’s certainly a lot to squee over. The question is, what is it that’s got you more excited? Let me know in the comments below!
