I’m Back and I’m Giving away a K-Pop Book! ^^

K-Pop Book Giveaway Winner! (K-Pop Now!)

It was a lot of fun reading through the 130+ entries for the free K-Pop book, “K-Pop Now!”, which is offered by the folks over at Tuttle Publishing. Many great answers from people who are clearly K-Pop fans.
I enjoyed reading through the answers and getting down to the best was quite difficult. Without further adieu, here is the winner.

Also, here are some of the great answers I received.


Free K-Pop Book Giveaway Contest (Tuttle Publishing)

Everyone loves the word “FREE”.  I do.

The great folks over at Tuttle Publishing know this and recently contacted me about giving away some great new books that would be of interest to those who love all things Korea and also follow my blog and YouTube channel.

Since the topics I write and vlog about always have to do with Korea in one form or another, giving away books related to Korea seemed like a logical idea.

What better topic for people interested in Korea than K-Pop?! 

The book up for grabs is “K-Pop Now” by Mark James Russell.  Check out the details here.

Here’s how the contest works:


Understanding Psy and Snoop Dogg's "Hangover"

Earlier this week, international sensation Psy debuted his latest release, "Hangover," featuring American rapper Snoop Dogg (er... Lion) on his oft-visited YouTube channel. Responses to the video have been mixed. Some believe the song is just as catchy as his "Gangnam Style," a viral hit that has received over 2 billion views to date. Still others have complained, slamming the video for its incessant product placement and Snoop Dogg's ever-growing tendency to sell out. Either way, "Hangover" is entertaining and paints a rather accurate portrait of Korea's intense drinking culture and famous nightlife (sans all the twerking in gold booty shorts). For those less accustomed to Korean ways, read on to better understand what exactly the duo are doing in the five minute video.

My K-Style Makeover at Jenny House in Cheongdam-dong

Over the past decade, Korea has gained a reputation for being one of the top beauty destinations of the world. Anyone who has strolled the streets of Seoul would probably agree that Koreans are some of the most beautiful, well put-together people on earth. It seems that just about everyone- including the men- has flawless skin, perfect hair and an impeccable sense of style. The world has come to realize this through the globalization of Korean dramas, movies and music and as a result, the Korean beauty business is booming, with global exports of the nation's innovative, multi-functional cosmetics increasing exponentially on a daily basis.

K-Pop

With so little time to do anything productive this month, you’d think I’d find something better to do with myself. I could have studied a language, planned my next trip around Asia, written an article, sponsored a dog, cooked a fantastic meal, exercised, or at least prepared for my day job.

Instead, I arsed around making this here pointless video… enjoy!

 

 


AOA “모야” Moya ~ K-pop Eye Candy

AOA Black  ( meaning Ace of Angels 에이오에이) is a smalled band formed with 5 of the 7 members of the main AOA pop group, Jimin, Choa, Yuna, Youkyung, and Mina.  AOA debuted in 2012 and revived a slew of nominations that year from various  award shows like SBS MTV, Allkpop Awards, Mnet asian music awards etc. with 3 singles peeking on the Korean music charts all within the top 10 range.


Get your music on this summer in Seoul.

I’m all about the music. I am up for any concert, just ask. With only a few days left before I leave (tear tear), lately I’ve been reminicing about all I’ve managed to experience while teaching and living in Korea (Are you ready?). I am amazed at how much I have done in such a short amount of time, especially when I think about all the concerts I’ve attended. It seems like ages ago, but at this time last year I was preparing to witness Lady Gaga’s first and very controvercial world tour stop in Seoul.
