Because I should be doing school.
Best excuse ever, amirite?
And because I get super distracted if I’m listening to lyrics I want to sing along to, but can’t stand soundtracks, foreign music is ideal. And not just any foreign music; foreign music that makes you excited to be alive; foreign music that makes your soul sing because you can’t; foreign music that doesn’t put you to sleep or make you go, “ugh, foreign noise”.
I know, I know. You’re just dying to learn what kind of foreign music I fill my ears with. You have no clue. Fine; I won’t make you wait.
• korean pop + japanese rock •
Hit you like a truck, didn’t it?
You never expected that from me.
Well, I’m just full of surprises.
Now you want to hear it, right? Of course you do.
• BTS •
The Bangtan Boys encourage me when I feel like throwing a text book out the window + screaming, “I’M DOPE. I DON’T NEED TO BE EDJUMICATED.” The only pain I feel as I listen to this comes from the fact that Jungkook (one in the officer getup) is my age. And can dance. And can sing. And doesn’t have to do school. I don’t know if he does or not, but it seems like he has the option not to?
Do yourself a favor + turn on the captions.
I Need U
If only I could do more than the chicken dance…
• BIGBANG •
Fantastic Baby whispers that I can do the thing. Well, it probably doesn’t. But I think being told, “wow, fantastic baby” a few times isn’t a bad thing.
• FTISLAND •
They are praying for me. I can do this.
And it’s time to fight, fight, fight. Time to do it right. Even though I’m down + afraid to go.
• SHINee •
The most amazing entrance + dance, yo.
• VIXX •
Because I can’t get away from all this school work.
I need memories of times when I had time to write, draw, smile, laugh…
Because math has taught me that I can’t do anything without calculations + watching grown men shove ice cream in another person’s face is kind of funny.
• GOT7 •
Because I don’t need a 5.0 GPA to validate my worth.
Okay, kids, that’s what I’ve got. If you want more recommendations, please feel free to ask me. I really love chatting with you + enjoy the Korean culture very much.
