[Music] MinJoon’s Monthly Top 10 – May 2018

After taking a ridiculously long break from this, I thought it would be a grand idea if I sparked this flame back to life. It is now the end of a very hot May here in Las Vegas, which makes it a great time to sit back, have a lemonade and listen to some tunes. Just a reminder that being 1 on the list does not mean it’s better than number 10, its just numbered in the order that I remember them. Edit: I set this to be a scheduled post, but it never posted, so I’m sorry that it’s being posted late!

10. You and IDreamcatcher
Dreamcatcher is on point with their style for all of their comebacks. I love the darkness and the fashion they bring to the stage. They have a bunch of sounds that sound almost similar to Japanese Visual Kei Rock, which I adore because you are getting the best of both worlds.

Hyukoh
9. Love YaHyukoh
Okay I love this music video. It’s so cute, it’s filled with lovers of different ages, genders, races, and cultures. It’s super laid back, the set is like a get together, and I love the vintage style to it. Who doesn’t just love love? And there is a cute dog in it! It’s just a big party of love, romantic, platonic, and family Love.

8. How R U TodayN. Flying 
With beautiful scenic shots and a soft flow chill vibe, this MV is great. It’s got this soft blur focus and very aesthetic theme. I am digging the boost and blur filter through out the MV. I feel like I am going to sing this when I talk to people now, and I’m totally okay with that. I honestly love when MVs are shot out in nature, it just gives a good vibe.

AOA
7. Bingle BangleAOA
I am such a sucker for 8bit and video game themed MVs. This is super cute in how they incorporated the 8bit game characters into real live scenarios, instead of just making the whole MV in 8bit. Also, they are playing a game cube, that’s awesome!

6. OUTCASTSouth Club
It seems this month was full of very vintage filters and styles in MV, which I love, I live for this aesthetic. Taehyun is wearing the boyfriend tee, its got a super chill laid back theme to the MV. It’s filmed outside, the girls in the MV are beautiful. I love this.

NTB
5. DramaticNTB
Again with the beautiful filters on these MVs, they are so aesthetically pleasing. This is my first time hearing of NTB, but I really dig this song, the dance has a lot of the popular moves in it, such as the shoot dance. Beautiful scenic shots, playful boy running the town shots; overall its cute and modern, and I find myself singing the chorus as I type this.

24K
4. Bonnie N Clyde24K
I was honestly waiting for this comeback since Cory was dropping hints on his IG. I will admit, it wasn’t in till the second time listening to it that I started to like it; it is a lot all at once. I enjoy the car aspects in this MV, and as always, 24k always gets me with their dancing skills.

3. SelfishMoonbyul of MAMAMOO ft. Seulgi of Red Velvet
In this MV I love that they brought in some of Red Velvet’s fashion style but MAMAMOO’s silly hang out type music video style. It’s a nice balance between the two girls. Also, more video games! I am glad to see Moonbyul finding her style as a rapper and stepping out to do her own song, she’s an amazing singer and rapper, so hopefully this shows the world that it’s okay that she is selfish with her talents and how she uses them.

SHINee14
2. Good EveningSHINee
This song has such an amazing beat to it, and it feels really good to see SHINee back again. From the oranges to short hair, this is a very visual MV, there isn’t any defined story line, which is fine, its a beautiful music video regardless. I love the over all tone and color of this MV, its fun but chill, and it looks like there is a tad bit of angst in it as you see Key beating the piano keys.

BTS-Fake-Love3-1-e1526743817629
1. Fake Love BTS
So, for this MV, I found out that the director didn’t use any CGI, all the fire, water, explosions are 100% real. That is honestly amazing, it can get pretty pricey for that kind of stuff, and they pulled it off flawlessly. Not only is the MV true to it’s element, it was also debuted at the BBMAs here in Las Vegas, and the album hit No.1 on the BillBoard music charts. It’s also nice to see dark haired BTS again, and they seem to really be enjoying it. I will point out, that I wish I could buy BTS their contacts, more natural looking ones, cause it does weird me out that their contacts are just…. off, but that’s just a personal thing. Also, abs, didn’t know we were bring that back but I’m down.

BTS Wings Tour in Anaheim

Getting tickets for this was extremely stressful, and thankfully my friends dad helped us out. Quoting him “I think BTS stands for Bullshit Ticketmaster Sucks” haha. We stayed at the Westin in Costa Mesa, which is kind of far from the Honda Center in Anaheim, but

View from Hotel Room

we were okay with that. We got there extremely early on Day 1, which seemed kind of insane to me, but my friend really wanted merch and the new lightstick. So waiting in a line that seemed forever, we got her lightstick! Which left her old one for me to use. There were so many ARMY Moms! It was so nice getting to meet them all!

We finally found where we needed to line up to get in, and then, at the doors, found out we couldn’t bring our backpack or cameras inside the venue! Which sucked cause then we had to find a way to check them in, and hoped our cameras would make it out alive. With all the threats that have happened in the past with Rap Monster and now Jimin, we 17796762_1846562885606913_242929124084820955_nunderstood why they needed to do this, but we wish we had known before we left the hotel room.

They started off the concert with Not Today, which really got everyone hyped up! It was actually really hard for me to believe I was actually at this concert. I wish they let us bring our cameras in so I could have got some good shots. I miss it so much. Seeing their smiles, their voices live, is really something I hope everyone gets to see one day. They did perform their old songs such as No More Dream, but in a rock remix, that was really cool! During Fire, we had a Fire sea and during Spring Day 17629822_1295009120612895_2500240890045190609_nwe had the rainbow sea! The one thing that really got me is that everyone shouted “We Love You!” during Rap Monster’s Reflection. This was just an amazing experience, and I’m so very thankful I got to live it, and meet the people I got to meet.

Bloggers –

Anime/Anei Blogger: Being Anime Blogger is to watch Animes old or new all the way through, and then write a review on that anime without giving out spoilers or critical details to the anime. The blog post must include Main Characters, Genre of Anime, Family Rating (Fairly PG, PG-13, ect.), Your thoughts on the Series, and Information on who created the anime. Can blog about Manga/ManHwa. (ManHwa and Anei are the Korean equivalents)

J/K-Drama Blogger: Being a Drama Blogger is quite the same as the Anime Blogger, You are to watch a series all the way through and write your thoughts on it. The blog post must include Main Characters and their Actors who play them, Genre of Drama, Family Rating (Fairly PG, PG-13, ect.), Your thoughts on the Series, and Information on who created the Drama.

Beauty Blogger/Reviewer: This consists of reviewing Korean and Japanese products and rating them out of 10. 10 being the best, 0 being the worst. You are to provide the products to review on your own (Pay for them yourself). You can blog about the latest Korean/Japanese trends in Fashion or Beauty. You may also film your own K-Pop/J-Pop inspired looks with approval of head admins.

Foodie: FOOD FOOD FOOD! This is probably one of the most filling positions. Doing Reviews on Korean/Japanese dishes and restaurants. Cooking and Recipes. Write a blog on how you feel about that certain dish, restaurant, and/or recipe. Don’t limit yourself to trying the same dish at 4 different restaurants. Be open to try new things, even if they seem gross at first. Exploring the world via food is something a lot of people look forward too. ( Also must pay for meals on your own)

J/K-Pop Blogger: The Hallyu/Cool Japan wave has taken over, and we need someone’s help to control it! When Debuts and Comebacks happen, it’s hard to find out information on groups. Being a J/K-Pop blogger, you would give out all the details on new comebacks and debutes, also info on Concerts/tours that would be coming to the US.

Hip Hop Unit: Japanese and Korean Hip Hop is slowly coming to light, this also means the underground. This requires a lot of knowledge on underground music and learning to contact new artists in helps of spreading their music.

Album Reviews: Collecting Albums is a big part of the Hallyu/Cool Japan community. Reviewing these albums or filming Album unboxings is something a lot of fans look for before buying albums. You would be in charge of contacting Album merchants to get coupon codes, potential giveaway products, and in helps to find the best store to get albums.

Conventionist: Do you like to Cosplay or attend conventions? This is perfect for you. This group would be in charge of being press at a convention. Which means you get to enjoy all aspects of the con, view the panels and events you wish to see, but also potentially contact and talk with voice actors, con leaders and famous cosplayers about their work.

Concert Press: Unfortunately, Small groups like ourselves are likely to only get 1-2 press passes per concert. If the concert allows photography, you can do this from anywhere in the Venue. We would like our Press to have good cameras/photography skills. You would also need to talk with the rest of the group on which 1 or 2 get the pass. Write a blog about the concert, include set list.
LV Locals only –

Performance Unit: Is Performing your passion? We have a lot of events that LOVE to see performing arts. This includes Singing, Dancing, and story time acting. We prefer to stick to covering songs and dances. Story Time Acting is reading a story (i.e. Korean/Japanese History, Korean/Japanese Myths, and/or Korean/Japanese children stories) as the Narrator, and Characters. Think of it as voice acting a short story. This ranges from teaching classes, performing at events, covering dances, and blogging about them. Each performance will be recorded and uploaded to the youtube page. This group can also contact cover groups for interviews (i.e. Chad Future, Gemini, ect.)
You can have a group outside of UF, and upload your own content and be partnered with us. We would help you be able to do performances at events. If you partner with us, and say you wanna do an EXO dance, but only have 4 members, you would talk to the rest of the unit and see if anyone else would like to join in.

Event Volunteer: So you read through the list and don’t feel that you fit well into any of the groups. An Event Volunteer will help out with Events we host. This means helping setting up and packing up. You are also the groups Hype Man, you give the ques on went to clap, laugh or join it. You will also be in charge of taking photos of the other members, friends and fans at these public events. Remember each group as full access to being a Facebook Page Admin.

Q&A: 

How many positions can I apply for?
As of right now, for people starting out, only two. We do not want you to feel overwhelmed and stuck doing something you don’t wanna do. 

Do you have an Age limit?
We prefer you to be over the age of 15, because most concerts are at night, and we don’t want your parents to worry, also you would need approval from Parents to post videos and to attend events. 

Do we get paid?
Sadly, no. We are working toward slowly making money to at least get concert/convention tickets for everyone in the group. 

Do I have to know how to speak Japanese or Korean? 
No! You only need to speak English, and if you do choose to do anything in Japanese and/or Korea, make sure it is correct. 

I wanna be a foodie, but I’m a picky eater.. 
That is totally okay! You can try foods and stuff that you are comfortable with! We won’t force you to eat meat if you are vegan, or eat something you think isn’t good.

You can apply here.
