Eye Candy Friday: Jeon Jungkook, Jungkook from BTS

Posted January 22, 2021 by Rowena in Features | 4 Comments

Eye Candy Friday is something that I’ve been doing since I first started my personal blog way back in 2003. That first personal blog is long gone but I’ve never really grown out of the eye candy phase. I’m always up for some eye candy. Whether it’s a character from a book (male or female, I don’t discriminate), a character from a movie or TV Show, if I loved them and want to gush about how much I loved them, you’ll find them here. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

This week, I’m featuring Jeon Jungkook, otherwise known as just Jungkook from BTS. This guy is my favorite singer in the group and one of the funniest too. They’re all funny in their own ways but Jungkook is the Golden Maknae, he also does the best imitations of his fellow group members. He can sing, he can dance and he’s the best rapper of the vocal line (though Jin and V give him a run for his money), IMO. There isn’t much that Jungkook isn’t good at. On top of all of that, he’s also hella good looking. He’s blonde right now and okayyyyyy JKKKKKKKKK!

Here are some of my favorite JK moments…

Until next week…enjoy!

Hey guys!

One of my favorite things to do when I was back home in L.A. was to take drives with my friend B Nice so that we can listen to our newly discovered favorite songs by BTS. We both discovered BTS over the pandemic and have been crazy for all things BTS. When I moved to Vegas, those drives stopped but I decided that I’m going to use my blog to share what songs I’m listening to each week with both B Nice and everyone else who reads this blog.

Here’s what I’m listening to this week:

This song is my favorite Jimin song. The song, his performance of this song at the concerts, and just everything about this song hits all my favorite buttons. I love listening to him sing this song too. He’s so stinkin’ talented and one of my favorite dancers in the group. Man but this is a great song.

I can almost sing this song without looking at the easy lyrics. I’m so proud, haha. This song is a bop. I freaking love every note, every lyric, and the minute the first chords start playing, I’m already in a better mood. This song is freaking good and when Jungkook sings it in concert, I be like….okayyyy JKKKKKKK!!! When I first read the lyrics for this song, I was cracking up because these guys are not lying…they sure are pied pipers!

I’m not going to lie, when I watched the concert where Jin performed this song, I teared up. He sang this song so well and with so much emotion that it was hard not to feel what he was singing. It was because of that performance that I became a huge fan of the song. I listen to this song all the time and I’ve listened to it a lot this week. So stinkin’ good.

The Weekly Recap (158)

Posted January 18, 2021 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

For the most part, my days and nights are a routine of daily tasks. Get up for work, make some coffee, work, figure out dinner, cook or help my sister cook, take my meds, and though I should be bored by all of the mundane tasks that I do every single day, I’m not. I like having a routine. I like having a to-do list, I even like cleaning the house on Saturdays. I never, in a million years thought I would ever like waking up on Saturday to clean.

I’ve been living in Las Vegas for a little over two months and I think my body has finally become accustomed to this dry ass Vegas winter weather because I’m not struggling anymore. I was hating life for a few weeks but I’m super glad that all of that seems to be behind me now.

This post is coming to you a little late because I took the day off yesterday and then completely forgot to schedule this to go up this morning. Oops.

Anyway, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…

Off the Blog

What I Watched

Run BTS
True Beauty
Naruto
BTS Prom Party – Re;View & Pre;View

Last week was a great week of TV watching for me. I’m really amping up on my Naruto binge watching and I’m wanting to spank Naruto less and less though now I’m wanting to spank all of the other kids, even Sasuke. True Beauty was great this week too. Holy shit, Lee Su Ho!!! This week’s BTS concert/fan event that I watched was the BTS Prom Party and that was yet another fantastic show. I really want to see these guys live in concert. I can’t wait for them to start touring again.

What I Read

Training Camp by Wesley King and Kobe Bryant (Rain) | 4 out of 5

It took me a couple of days to get into Rain’s story but once I had a grasp on what was going on, the story really picked up and I ended up liking this one. I’m breaking up each kids story since it’s a lot to read at one time so next month, I’ll read the next story. Still, Rain’s book was a solid one.

What I Listened To

Love Yourself 承: Her
Love Yourself 轉: Tear
Love Yourself 結: Answer

Oh man, this set of albums was fantastic and I think most of my favorite songs are on the Love Yourself: Tear album. So much goodness so it was a great week in music for me.

Eye Candy Friday: Min Yoongi, Suga from BTS

Posted January 15, 2021 by Rowena in Features, Music | 2 Comments

Eye Candy Friday is something that I’ve been doing since I first started my personal blog way back in 2003. That first personal blog is long gone but I’ve never really grown out of the eye candy phase. I’m always up for some eye candy. Whether it’s a character from a book (male or female, I don’t discriminate), a character from a movie or TV Show, if I loved them and want to gush about how much I loved them, you’ll find them here. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

This week features my bias wrecker in BTS. Min Yoongi aka Suga. Suga is my favorite rapper in the group and his grumpy nature appeals to me. I’ve watched countless performances, Run BTS episodes and all of their other content and Yoongi is such a highlight for me. He’s one of the older members of BTS and it really shows. He’s the grandpa of the group because he’s got no time for idiocy, he’s always tired from staying up all night working on music but he takes good of his younger members. He cooks most of the boy’s meals along with Jin and the boys described his manner of taking care of them as quiet. He doesn’t make a big production of taking care of the members. He just does it and I heart him.

I loved seeing this so much. I believe it’s during one of their Bon Voyage trips, yeah to Hawaii and V and Suga are on the same team. They’re the definition of opposite and Suga’s way of dealing with their disagreements is to hold V’s hand. LOL, the cuteness!

Until next week…enjoy!

Hey guys!

One of my favorite things to do when I was back home in L.A. was to take drives with my friend B Nice so that we can listen to our newly discovered favorite songs by BTS. We both discovered BTS over the pandemic and have been crazy for all things BTS. When I moved to Vegas, those drives stopped but I decided that I’m going to use my blog to share what songs I’m listening to each week with both B Nice and everyone else who reads this blog.

Here’s what I’m listening to this week:

Dude, why didn’t anyone tell me how hard this song goes? I’ve been busy listening to all of the popular songs that I’ve been sleeping on these underrated bops. I reviewed the album that this song is on yesterday and ever since I discovered this song, it’s been constantly on rotation on my playlist. B Nice, this one is another banger to add to your playlist. This is definitely our kind of jam.

I heard this song while watching one of their fan event concerts, I can’t remember which one but I had no clue what song it was so I was a happy camper when it came up while I was checking out the Dark and Wild album. This album was so stinkin’ good. This song is so stinkin’ good too. I’m telling you, BTS be feeding us good. I have like over 100 songs, group songs, solo songs, and they talking about more new stuff coming out this year too? Thank you, more please!

This has been my jam for a while now but it’s not a popular BTS song, at least I don’t be seeing it anywhere so I’m adding it to this post. If you’re new to BTS like me and dig pop and R&B songs, check this one out. Baby Vocal Line are the bomb in this one and so are the rappers. This song is just all around good.

What songs are you on your playlist this week? Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be BTS. Share in the comments!
