Video of the Day: SHINee's First "Odd" Comeback Teasers + More!

Guys!  What's up??  It's been FOREVERRRR!  I know, I know, it's been too long.  I didn't write anything about Taemin's solo, I didn't write about Jonghyun's solo... I'm just a bad, bad Shawol aren't I?  I've been incommunicado and that's because I was super burnt out.  Trying to keep up with all the SHINee news and pics and videos and..and...everything was just a lot and it made me think I might never want to blog again.  But guess what?  That's obviously not true, because I'm at my desk right now typing about SHINee's comeback!  Yesssss, because SHINee's back!  Or they're about to be back anyway, on May 18th, 2015.  I AM SO EXCITE!



Leveling Up in Fangirl - VIXX and Block B's Zico at a Free Concert Event in Seoul 140116/17

Fangirling in Seoul: A Fan Account
Written by- Kattack

I came home from Seoul a few weeks ago and let me just tell you- O.M.G.SEOUL.IS.AMAZING.

I will be writing a nice long post on all my adventures for Oddness/Weirdness in the coming weeks, but in the meantime I wanted to share a little teaser of my trip-  a fancam at a free concert event at the World Class College (WCC) Convention in Samseong-Dong, Seoul! Featuring the amazing Zico from Block B! *excited bouncing*

Not only was it my first fancam, but my first experience being a real "fangirl". Storytime!

So, a friend who I met up with in Seoul is immensely talented at finding out what's going down in the K-Pop world around her. She announced that VIXX and Block B would be performing a free concert on the Saturday (VIXX) and Sunday (Block B) of this World Class College Convention, and would I like to go. HELLS YES I WOULD! I'm in Seoul, I'm taking advantage of absolutely every opportunity to get my fangirl on that arises!

Day One: On the subway over this bridge- so pretty!



Let's Play The "Caption This!" Game With SHINee's Key, His Friend Miya & A Crown

Today I find myself sitting at my computer, wanting to blog something SHINee related but unfortunately SHINee's been pretty damned quiet recently (that's a good thing, right?  Right???).  What to do?  Thankfully someone on the Facebook page gave me the idea to play a little game with you guys, because the following pics of Key are just begging to be captioned.

Kim Miya of Mama Miya restuarant in Seoul uploaded these extra FAB-u-lous pics of her bff Key to her Instagram account today:




[Guest Post] Did You Just Ask Why I Love K-Pop? A Dissertation

I'm back!   But only kind of today because my first foray back into blogging is a guest post.  Did I hear someone say "But whyyyy??" from here?  Well, I happen to think you'll like this one a lot.  This post is by Kat, Associate Writer extraordinaire for Korea.com, who I met in the comments of this here blog and promptly befriended.  We bonded over SHINee belts... don't ask.  Anyway, Kat is here to give you an in depth view into why we all like Kpop and also to give you a way to explain it to those pesky non-Kpop lovers.

Did You Just Ask Why I Love K-Pop?

Others: You like K-Pop? What, like that Sigh guy?"

Me: Yeah!

Others: But I’m so sick of hearing that gang-nam song, such a one-hit wonder.

Me: Actually Psy has been a significant figure in the Korean music industry for over 12 years now and he has produced a lot of really fantastic music during that time…

Nope, I’ve lost them.

I guess it's understandable how people associate K-Pop to being only a ‘one-hit wonder’, after all that’s often all they have the opportunity to see, poor things. It’s only once you’re on the inside that you really understand the true wonders of K-Pop. And you fall into it; you fall into it really, really hard. We’re talking Taeyang-ab hard, and that's pretty damned hard.

Oh I forgot to introduce myself! *waves happily* I'm Kat and I’m K-World OBSESSED. I have been for the past couple of years now and I’ll happily admit it. That, or the 4 coloured bands on my wrist give me away. Three of them say the names of my biases- BIGBANG, SHINee and JYJ, and the fourth reads SBS PopAsia (Australia’s Asian Pop Radio Station). You can also tell by the way any conversation I’m involved in veers to some aspect of Korean culture. That's because I’m always happy to do my bit to help spread some K-Pop love. Of course some are more willing to receive the love than others, but very occasionally I do find a person that will ask with genuine interest as to why I like K-Pop.




[ANNOUNCEMENT] Why Oddness/Weirdness Has Been Silent For So Long

Hey friends, fans and fellow Oddities!  I know it's been over a month since I posted anything on here, and I apologize for that.

(There's an appropriate SHINee gif for every occasion, as you probably know)

Mianhe!  Jeong mal mianhe! 

 So here's my explanation:
