New Year Resolutions

The new year is finally among and of course we must make some resolutions! This year I'm only making 3 since I know I like to drop and forget about things so I though 3 things were short and sweet. Below are resolutions I'm making in Kpop with #1 being the most important for the new year.


Let's BEGIN!

Get Your Kpop On

When you're a Kpop fan, you see Kpop in everything you do. Being out and about or at home cooking, SOMETHING will remind you of your favorite song or dance from a Kpop artist. For me, shopping would be where I get reminded of things. Below are a few accessories that make me say "OMO!"

G-Dragon's Obsession



GD's duo dark themed song Obsession (악몽 Nightmare) and She's Gone are my absolute favorite of his (including Coup De'tat) so seeing the necklace below made me squeal. Obsession is all about not being over to get over the one you love.  Check out the pleading lyrics below.

Kpop Tag #4

A tag all about my favorite groups! Has my bias changed in any groups? What was the first video I saw from them? On a scale from 1 - 10 how much do I know about them? Check out the answer below!

Group 1 - Big Bang 

How did you know them?: A friend in college told me about Tae Tae's solo stuff. 
Then I found GD and Top on YouTube then Bam who knew those 3 were in a group called Big Bang?
What was the first song that did you heard? : First song of Taeyang (I can't remember) I think it was either Wedding Dress or I Need a Girl. From GD&TOP it was Knock Out. Then my first Big Bang video was Tonight.
Taeyang shut it down in San Francisco for his Music Experiment 2.0. Not only did he leave his mark on San Fran but on me! So many amazing things happened that week that my little Taeyang loving heart almost couldn't take it all!


Though I've seen Big Bang in concert many times, it was my first solo Taeyang concert and first Kpop concert in America. This was also so monumental for him as it was his first solo performance in America! I think he was truly proud and humbled being asked to perform in San Fran.

Kpop Tag #3

Kpop Tag Time! 
Click here for the full list of questions.

Which company is your favorite?
It seems I like artists who are on YG. But not everyone though, just some. Honestly I think all the company's have pros and cons. When I first got into Kpop I happened to like artists who happened to all be on the YG label! Yah me!
As we get to the core of the holiday season with turkey, cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie filling our stomachs, we have time to look back on what we're thankful for this year. Family, health and friends are probably the first things we think of but what about things we're thankful for in Kpop? Let's go through the top 5 things I'm thankful for in Kpop this year.

MAMA 2013 WTF Moments

The MAMA's 2013 was full of energy, surprises and confetti. Let's go through the best, worst and WTF moments of the Mnet Asian Music Awards 2013!



The Mnet Asian Music Awards aired this Friday with a show packed with the biggest Kpop and Asian acts. Each came expressing their own style on the red carpet, some great and others not so great. Let's go through the best and worst dressed of the night.

Best of the Night


The Queen of Kpop's dress was fun, flirty and sexy. All the elements that an ensemble for an award show such as this should be. I WANT HER OUTFIT...BAD. (And that's not bad meaning bad but bad meaning good ya know?)

The ambitious and fabulous Cycle 4 of Korea's Next Top Model recently wrapped up with 18 year old Hyun Ji taking the title. The show was full of peplum, pearls and posing that many admired. The great thing about it is a lot of their outfits you can put together at home! Check out the concepts below to style like a Top Model!

Hello guys~
This post is all about my Top 5 favorite Korean Cosmetics. Most of these I've been using for over at least 6 months so can definitely attest to their quality and awesomeness! And don't forget, if you head over to W2Beauty.com and enter this code
07392910 
at checkout you will receive $5 off your first purchase!




To see my post on my favorite Korean Face/Skin Care products or the best Tony Moly cosmetics click on the links!


1. Tony Moly - Crystal Jelly Cheek PotEvil Orange - $10.31
This blush is a must for make up lovers. It's not oily nor messy and is easy to apply when you're on the run. Also the putty texture allows you to easily control how much you put on. I love Evil Orange which is great for mocha skin tones while Angel Pink is best for paler skin tones.
Comes in Angel Pink, Angel Orange and Evil Orange



2. Tony Moly Perfect Eyes Waterproof Liner - Sparkle Green - $15.98
I really enjoy the Sparkle Green because it's vibrant and fun. And the long wand makes it easy to apply.
5 colors available



3. The Saem - Waterproof Perfection Proof Mascara $17.11
This Waterproof mascara is the truth! It stays on all day so I never need to reapply it. Though because of that it can be a little difficult to take off so make sure you have some eye make up remover at home!
Choose from Curling and Lash or Volume and Curling.



4. Skin Food - Seaweed Real Color Lip Pencil $10.87
I LIVE by this color. It's my absolute go to lipstick. It's very matte so I never look overly done when I have it on which allows me to wear it for any occasion! I prefer the very sleek and sexy red color lip pencil. The pencil shape allow you to have more control when putting it on because you can literally draw it on your lips. Only negative is I seem to break the container (either I have a heavy hand or it's very fragile.) Fortunately the lipstick isn't liquid so there isn't any spillage if it does break.




5. Etude House - Dear My Blooming RD306  - $12.05 (#23)
Another favorite lipstick of mine. It's not matte like the lip pencil above but it's still great. It's in a regular lipstick tube and has great moisture. It comes in 24 different colors so you have MANY choices!

Bonus!

Skin Food - Egg Plant Eye Makeup Remover Bar - $6.99 (ebay)
This make up is remover awesome because it's a Q tip with remover inside! All you do is twist the ring around the bar and turn it upside to have the remover fill the inside of the cotton! No remover in a bottle or cotton balls! It's all in one!


Hope you all enjoyed this list. 
If you already have these products leave a review down below or let me know what your favorite Korean products are!
After 3 YEARS Young Bae Dong aka Taeyang has made his comeback to the world of Kpop which is now re-titled SOLpop. I have a LOT to say about the Ringa Linga Dance Performance video, Official MV and his Inkigayo comeback stage. 



It's the final episode! So sad to see it end but who will be the winner of Korea's Next Top Model Cycle 4? Let's see!

Episode 11

We finally have the ladies back after a short break. As soon as they're back, Top 3 Hyun Ju, Hyun Ji and Ho Yeon jump into their final mission before deliberations. They have to model and shoot a fashion film for Adidas. The ladies had to pose against LED lights along with other scenes.

Kpop Tag #2

This particular Kpop Tag came in 6 sections but I'll only be doing Section 2 "Versus Round," Section 4 "How devoted are you" and Section 6 "Least Favorites." You can check out Pandaxwolf on Tumblr for the entire tag list.



***VERSUS ROUND!***

 
2NE1 or KARA? 2NE1
Finally we get our Top 3 along with a lot of surprises. So let's jump into it!


I'm in total shock right now. My breath is short and I'm Michi Seo! Taeyang's comeback stage announcement teaser was revealed on Sundays Inkigayo and Lawd Jesus It's A fire Up in Here!


Seoul Fashion Week S/S 2014 recently wrapped up with some of Korea's best designers rocking the hottest trends on the runway. KYE (designed by Kye Han {Kathleen} Hee) is a very popular brand many idols wear. CL, GD and model/actor Lee Soo Hyuk sat front row at her F/W 2013 show earlier this year. She's also collaborated with Joyrich among others. You can check out more about KYE and other Seoul designers here.

Kpop Tag #1

Hey Everyone.
I thought of doing some Kpop tag posts as there are many throughout Tumblr and the blog-sphere. I'll be doing some every week along with creating my own about KPop Fashion. Not sure what'll entail yet but when it's finished I know it'll be great. (Maybe. Lol.)


Don't forget to let me know your answers to this tag in the comments!

This tag comes from Hallyulyrics.blogspot.com. I chose this 25 Q tag because I liked the broad range of funny questions. So let's begin!

01. Who was the first Korean Band you heard?
Hey guys!
While vacationing in Japan earlier this September I bought a lot of cool stuff. Cute bags, accessories and some awesome Kpop finds with buy links that I want to share with you all. Japan is certainty full of funky fashion!




Hello KNTM fans!
Now's the time for our Top 3 predictions. Just like in football where one can create their own dream team we will create our lists of the Top 3 KNTM's that should make it to the end. I will do my ideal Top 3 and my realistic Top 3. Pretty self explanatory so let's begin!

Ideal Top 3 

2nd Runner Up
Hyun Ju
Why? She's a contestant I've just started to pay attention to. She's been pretty quiet and reserved throughout the show and in my opinion her photos haven't really stood out. But after seeing her during the Busan Film Festival challenge and doing a good job speaking English though it isn't her language I gained respect for her. She's one that I think we should watch out for.


Episode 9

This episode of Korea's Next Top Model started off with host and judge Yoon Ju coaching the models in an impromptu photo shoot. Then the ladies got model comp cards made and sent on a designer casting audition challenge with the winners being able to walk in Seoul Fashion Week S/S 2014.


Kpop stars were all over this years Seoul Fashion Week S/S 2014. Some performed, viewed the show and even walked the runway. Check below to see what they were up to.


Recap time!

Episode 7

While the ladies were chilling at home, judge Lee Hyun Ju came by for a Special Challenge titled the Fashion Knowledge Test. Questions included knowledge on International models and designers.


Pondering what costume to dress as this Halloween? Would you like to choose a Kpop star but not quite sure how to put the items together? Well GoGangnam.com has got you covered.

#GoGangnam with GoGangnam.com 


GoGangnam.com is a online Halloween costume store that sells Gangnam Style costumes for men, women and kids. They accept all major credit cards along with Paypal, have a great return policy and ship internationally. So international Kpop fans, they've got you covered!


The great folks at GoGangnam.com were kind enough to gift me a costume to feature on the Pink Fashion Ninja blog! So a big thanks to them!




*Note: You can also make this into a "Gentleman" Halloween costume by wearing a pair of Harem pants with your GoGangnam.com tuxedo jacket!

Sizing


I got a size 8 in the jacket and a size 6 in the shorts. It fits very true to size so check out the size chart below to know what size range you should order.

Tuxedo Jacket (Womens)

Small
Size 2
Size 4

Medium 
Size 6
Size 8

If you have a large chest (like me) but wear a medium size in clothes, I suggest choosing a size 8 jacket because you'll be able to close the button in front, have room in the shoulders and still be able to show off your curves.

Large/XL
Size 10



Black Jet Tap Short

Small
Size 2
Size 4

Medium 
Size 6
Size 8

Large/XL
Size 10

My advice would be, if you are planning to go to a adult Halloween party where folks are going to dress in sexy costumes then this would be a great short to order. If you're planning on only giving out candy at the door then this sequin short might be a bit short to wear. I ordered a size 6 which fit BUT was quite short in the back. (On the model it's more like a short but on me if was like a pair of panties. :D) If you have a regular to large sized butt then you might want to wear a pair of tights underneath. 
To be safe order a size 8.

Quality

The quality of both items are great. The jacket is lined and has a nice silhouette. It's also great because the design isn't cheap or too costumey. I feel I can wear the jacket out and about and be confident I don't look like a shiny disco ball!


Don't forget your #GoGangnam costume isn't complete with accessories~
1. A bow tie
2. Rayban Shades
3. Oxfords
4. A DANCE!



In love already? Check out the men's and kids collection below!



Men's Sizing

34-36
38-40
42-44
46-48
50-52



Size 6 - 12


Isn't the little girl costume adorable? And the Psy print lining is darling! This reminds me of the 1992 Eddie Murphy movie "Boomerang" where John Witherspoon comes to dinner with mushroom printed suit. His line was "Well the secret is you got to COORDINATE....When you saw me you saw the mushroom shirt. Bang." *shows mushroom printed belt.* And you can't stop there you gotta keep going. *shows mushroom printed suit lining."
HILARIOUS!



Size 6 - 12

More finds from the fabulous "Miss You" video from rookie girl group Tiny G. This post contains a lot of bottoms so if you liked the leggings and shorts you saw you're in luck!


Tiny G is a relativity new KPop girl group on the scene. They first debuted January this year with a bubbly track titled "Minimanimo." Afterwards they kept quite until this September with a new sexy fun concept for their newest song "Miss You."



Kpop sex kitten HyunA is all about sensual style which she regularly shows on her personal Instagram. She recently showed off a few photos in a fuzzy crop top, sheer skirt and a pair of banging pearl shades.

Let the Sun Rise!

Kpop Dancing King Taeyang keeps teasing us with photos from the set of his newest video which is VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY CLOSE NOW. I feel not just VIP's but all Kpop fans are waiting for his solo return. We've been trolled over and over and over again about its release for the past year but it finally seems to be coming to fruition. He's given us huge legendary hits like "Wedding Dress," "I Need A Girl," "I'll Be There," and "Only Look At Me" (my personal favorite) and many more that we've been patiently waiting to get more of.


Seo In Young is a woman who knows style. And I mean not just knows, but KNOWS it. Style definitely seems to naturally run through her veins unlike many of her kpop counterparts who seem to only know what their stylist tells them.

Back with another recap for Episodes 5 and 6. A lot of surprises were in store for us with two models being sent home and one model RETURNING! While Episode 6 was a laid back KNTM special episode featuring previous season models so let's get into it!

Episode 5

Episode 5 started with the models being introduced to their first challenge which was another runway challenge but with a twist! The ladies had to walk on an un-attached runway on water! The model who could strut her stuff the best without any mishaps would be the winner. They also made the contestants wear 5 inch heels! Ah too much! As you can see from the screen caps, the challenge didn't go well for everyone.

No matter how many times I see GD in concert he never ceases to amaze. The One of A Kind World Tour Finale in Seoul was filled with new releases and high energy from one of Korea's most famous singers.

Kpop Snacks!

Ever wondered what your favorite Kpop stars loves to eat? Ever wanted to try Korean snacks and noodles but didn't really know what to get? Well Kpoptown.com has got you covered! This online Kpop emporium features a food section that sells snacks that Kpop's top stars love. Or if you have a Korean grocery near you, you can pick these up there.

Jjapaguri

G-Dragon was recently on SBS's show "Thank You" chatting with the cast and cooking one of his favorite foods, Jjapaguri.

Apparently its two instant noodles, Japaghetti and Neogori, mixed together for a fusion treat. I've never tried either one of these noodles before since I hate black noodles so I can't give any feedback on the taste. But it's only $2.90 so I'd suggest purchasing and trying it out!



Back at it with another recap. Here's Korea's Next Top Model cycle 4 episodes 3 and 4. Click here for more info about KNTM and recaps from episodes 1 and 2.

Rum Pum Pum Pum!

F(X) recently released their newest single "Rum Pum Pum Pum." The chorus reminds me of a children's story time chant that has been popular for centuries though I can't quite put my finger on which one. Other than that reference I feel the song is mediocre. I REALLY liked "Electric Shock" as it was extremely catchy and had a great dance so I feel "Rum Pum Pum Pum" is a recycled version of it. I would rather have the original! I do enjoy the fashion and the cute school girl plaid. I like thrift shops and second hand stores so I would TOTALLY be fine it F(X) wanted to pass down those outfits to me. What do you say girls? We got a deal? :D


These are the most adorable outfits EVER!!

Who Killed Bill?

The sexy women of Brown Eyed Girls are back with an awesome song and video titled "Kill Bill." BEG never ceases to bring it and have the most amazing concepts. They go deeper than just "a video," its a movie; a story they must tell. So using such an popular and amazingly fierce movie such as Kill Bill as their theme makes an inevitably hot video.


The fine beastly men of 2PM did their thang in Seoul at the What Time Is It Grand Final. After standing in line with my friends for 3 hours we finally got in!

What made us angry though was while we were waiting in line a staff member kept telling us everyone in line that there were only 200 tickets left and we probably couldn't get in. This must have been her first day on the job because you can't get a fangirl out the way that easily! We stayed in line and bam all 3 of us where able to sit together and enjoy the show! 

Taeyang, the global fashionisto of the week, made a splash all over the blogisphere during his recent visit to Paris Fashion Week. In just the few days he was there he managed to get featured in Vogue, WWD (the fashion bible), GQ, BuzzFeed, Style.com and Italian site Grazia. He had mobs of fans following outside of every show and gave AMAZING fan service, shaking hands. saying I love you and even HUGGING a fan. Oh you lucky gal. :D


CL's not the only bad female around, you can be one too! Many of the looks from her latest solo video are totally diy-able! Check out the collages below, scavenger through your wardrobe and scan your local H&M to style like the head 나쁜 기집애.
___
First up is a summery goddess look that's great for any shape. Many maxi dresses are available in myraid colors so finding a white one shouldn't be too difficult. Then browse the jewelry section for a very royal/Grecian/Egyptian type necklace and accessory's. Because being the baddest means you MUST be royalty (or at least look like it, Lol.) Add a printed clutch and a pair of Grecian sandals either flat or heeled. And why not do your nails like CL's? All you need is white polish with a bit of black sparkle!
