I’ve joined my friend’s challenge to write 500 words a day. I thought it was a great way to get my blogging efforts back up and running. I really do enjoy sharing my fan girl love with the world and I am going to make it the jump start I’ve been looking for.
It’s been a while since I’ve been active on here and I’ve done a lot of things that really are worthy of sharing. So what have I been up to and where am I now with my obsession over Korean and Japanese dramas and pop music?
The Journey So Far…
It was around this time 4 years ago that I became a full blown addict to all things Kdrama and Kpop related. I have always enjoyed watching anime, however my experience didn’t go much further then Sailor Moon and Studio Ghibli when my friend sent me a hard drive full of KDramas. A few months earlier I had managed to get into some manga and live action versions of the manga so it was with great pleasure that I plunged into the makjang world or Korean dramas. Kpop was quick to follow after falling for a few idols staring in the dramas.
In 2013 I went to my first Kpop concert here in Australia. My first Kpop love, CNBlue held two concerts over here and I went to both! Later that year my two friends and I headed off for our first adventure to Japan and South Korea. It was an amazing holiday and on it I got to see more of my fav groups live in concert including Infinite, Beast and FTIsland. It was a pretty fantastic holiday.
In 2014 I was very active with my blogging and was keeping up to date with my fav songs and releases all the time. B.A.P and B1A4 both came to Australia for concerts in my home town and I jumped off a bridge without a rope and landed in Jpop. Unlike my decent into Kpop, I showed some restraint and focused all of my love on one particular group, Hey! Say! JUMP! I have no regrets.
2015 was “The Year of the Big Trip”. In the times I wasn’t planning for our adventures I became somewhat obsessed with high school Jdramas and slacked off a whole lot in the blogging department. Then along came September and my two friends and I headed off on a 3 month adventure though Japan and South Korea. It really was the trip of a lifetime. We went to heaps of concerts, saw pretty much every Kpop group live, had up close experiences with multiple idols and generally had the greatest time ever.
Now we are here in 2016 and I am getting ready to head off to see my two fav groups, Hey! Say! JUMP and FTIsland, once again over in Japan. I had a break from watching Kdramas for a while but recently have once again become addicted. I culled my Kpop collection and now only collect my top 10 fav groups and have been to see three Kpop groups in concert here in Melbourne, Beast, B.A.P and Seventeen.
It certainly has been one hell of a journey over the last 4 years. It’s so much a part of my life now that I can’t ever remember how I got on without it before.
Let’s keep on travelling together!
