So I went to the BIGBANG concert with Chloe. (TOP of BIGBANG collects furniture, which others find laughable but we find amazing).
Furniture and love of furniture as western women is a cultural difference that does sometimes come up when you have a Korean partner. Korean houses traditionally lack a lot of furniture and they use the space in different ways, whereas Australia has an obsession with renovations and furniture (in comparison). You should see the way Hugh’s eyes will roll if my mum and I drag him into a furniture shop in Australia. He can never understand my passion for lovely sofas or beds and to this day we still don’t have a sofa or bed in this house… But when we get our own apartment I will get my way and have furniture!
So the elusive TOP of BIGBANG (the most famous Kpop group) is known to collect unique furniture. Apparently the other members laughed at his collection at first but now realise how cool it is. TOP is also starting to post furniture pics on his new Instagram account as well.
So yes, we really did yell those things out to him. Not that he would have been able to hear, but we want to support him in his love of furniture! His furniture collection makes him even more attractive.
Chloe also drew a comic about wishing she had brought a sign like this to the concert.
Check out her other art here. And her tumblr. Please DO NOT take these comics and reupload to tumblr with no reference to us. We are both on tumblr, you should be REBLOGGING from our official tumblrs.
Woohoo Bigbang comeback! Unfortunately tickets for concerts go on sale while I’m in Australia so it’s impossible to try to buy them online from here. Even if I was in Korea, it’s so hard to get tickets because they sell out immediately and super hardcore fans have many computers set up to get them as quickly as possible. I can’t compete with that! Fingers crossed that I can get some tickets though… and don’t just have to settle with my husband singing me songs…
For those that don’t know, Hyuna is a popular Kpop star known for being quite sexy. To be fair – Mr Gwon does actually listen to her music!
Does anyone else get frustrated when someone uses Instagram like it’s Facebook and puts up many very similar photos that clog up the feed? Hyuna seems to be a repeat offender of this, but as Mr Gwon pointed out – doesn’t seem like many people mind! haha
We both think Instagram is one of the best social media platforms because of it’s simplicity. What celebrities do you think use it well? What celebrities do you think don’t use it well?
He knows what the internet is for!
Actually he doesn’t have Tumblr, so he only sees what comes up on my dash and needless to say, I follow blogs with a lot of Kpop gifs.
This is the music video we were watching:
Also, there is a new vlog on the vlogging channel. Make sure you SUBSCRIBE to see these videos as soon as they are uploaded.
Well he wouldn’t be the first to name a Kpop group after himself…. (I’m looking at you Jackie Chan), but he seems to think he would be in the group too!
I asked Sophie and Chloe what they think is a good name for a Kpop group but they only gave me rude names that I won’t repeat here…
What about you? What would you name a Kpop group? Which ones do you think are good names and which ones are terrible?
We’ve seen this happen before right? He will be really disdainful about something I like, sometimes even making fun of me. And then at some point he realises actually it’s really good! Then he starts liking it even more than me.
He was really dismissive when I was watching ‘WIN: Who is next?’ last year. For those that don’t know, that TV show was YG Entertainment trainees put into 2 teams to compete against each other. The winning team became WINNER, the group who have just debuted. Bobby was in Team B which is the team that didn’t win. So I’ve liked him since then, but Mr Gwon has suddenly become a fan since he has been on ‘Show Me the Money’. He didn’t care about him at first because like others, he just dismissed him as an Kpop idol who can’t rap…….but he was wrong.
He listens to his songs from Show Me the Money over and over again. Like so much that I’m kinda sick of them now.
