K-Pop is Taking Over the World & I'm Here For it

"I don't even know what they're saying, but it sounds nice." -every beginning k-pop fan. So, STREAM MAP OF THE SOUL & THE ALBUM {BLACKPINK OCTOBER 2, 2020)

K-Pop is Taking Over the World & I'm Here For it

This article will focus on the two of the hottest k-pop artists right now; BTS & BLACKPINK


If you're stuck under a rock or really don't listen to music that much, BTS AND BLACKPINK are two of South Korea's most popular artists right now. Their mainstream, versatile song lyrics really stuck a chord within their American's audience. As soon as BTS' album came out it sold out within minutes, the same thing could be said about BLACKPINK (if YG can give us their long awaited album on time). Just over this weekend at the VMAS, BTS took home big with best big Pop award among various others. Also, BLACKPINK took home Song of the Summer, but Harry Styles fans weren't too happy about that. However, that is a story another day.


The Queens and Kings that they are have redefined the standards of conventional pop music. Just because you can't understand the language does not mean you can't understand the feeling within each verse. These groups have helped so many fans across the world with their kindness and dedication to their fan base. Maybe I'm biased because I am a multi fandom stan, but I appreciate their efforts for making each show their best.

People may say that K-pop is so overrated, it sounds like the same song, I really don't see myself getting into this. K-pop is not trying to shove its music down your throat. K-pop is a movement, a fandom, a revolution, it changes the standards of music. These idols ruthlessly train everyday with probably little sleep, agonizing over the details for their music video. Moreover, they have to advertise their music, going on popular shows to talk about their new release. All these things can be mentally, and physically draining. Yeah, they might have "signed up for this," but they also signed to be respected. Remembers idols are human beings, just like you.

Anyways, STREAM ICE-CREAM by BLACKPINK ft. Selena Gomez & stream DYNAMITE by B.T.S (also all in English, so take that!)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
