It's called the Korean Wave for a reason, and I am drenched. In fact, I am happily drowning in it. Gulping down The Wave, and becoming quite bloated from all the K-Awesomeness! Daebak! I enjoy this experience SO much, I have dragged friends and family into the waters with me and a few of them would be willing to surf that Korean Wave all the way back to South Korea with me. And this process of taking friends who have doubtingly trusted me, and watching them also fall in love with this new found genre of entertainment, I started affectionately calling it K-onversion.
And probably the most important person for me to Konvert was my sister, Suey. We have SO MANY shared passions it is almost eerie, and there was no way she was going to remain unaffected by my new obsession. I introduced her to Kdramas at Christmas time, and shortly after that Kpop. And since January we have talked of little else. Like I said, happily drowning in the Korean Wave here. Also when I say we have talked of little else, it's not that we aren't talking to each other, in fact, we basically have a constant running dialogue all day consisting of songs, music videos, fangirling, reactions, and kpop thoughts for the past five months. It's pretty much the best thing ever. (And work and adult responsibilities so annoyingly get in the way of this constant Kpop Party, it's the worst.)
After about a year of wanting to do a vlog together, but not knowing what to do, we finally found something that we can talk about FOREVER. One week after thinking about it, we decided we would do this thing.... We started a Youtube channel. This very fun, exciting, scary, intimidating thing. We did it. And we both drug others into it. I recruited my dear friend and fellow kpopper, Ryn, and Suey pulled in her daughter, Toto.... and together, we are the Kpop Konverters!!! Jinjja!
Now after a little over a month of doing this thing, we decided it was time to come at least a little public... Like we are totally okay with strangers watching us, but for whatever reason it is super scary letting people closest to us know that we did this... What is with that??? And why do we care when this Kpop Kraziness makes us happy and enjoy life that much more??? I have decided, I don't. Because I love it, it makes me happy, and given the opportunity and time, I'd like to K-onvert you.
Here is one of my favorites we have done so far, talking about the group Got7.
Then here is a mashup of something you might be familiar with and G-Dragon's song, Crayon. This is what came to mind every time I listen to this song! I'm so glad we finally made it! Good job Toto on the editing job of this, perfect! Love it so much!
Also... HAPPY SUPER JUNIOR ANNIVERSARY Suey!!!! Five months of Kpop Kraziness!
