the cute guy from super junior,pencil and digital
a sketch from last night that got out of control and a bunch of post-it note drawings from a kpop concert.
i indulged my engineer and went to what can only be described as a korean-pop-music-screaming-teenage-girl-hormone-fueled-explosion (which sounds kind of gross, actually). the concert included, but was not limited to, mblaq, wonder girls, kara, girls’ generation, beast, f(x), and super junior. i knew one song from one band and could identify one guy from that ten-member group. i call him, “the hot guy.” sadly, of all the people in all the groups to show up, he did not. i was disappointed to say the least.
other than the grand let-down, there were two fun results from the evening. firstly, i had vivid flashbacks of my days as a young teen. observing the kids doing homework (a few were reading Lord of the Flies while waiting in line for seats) has a way of inducing anxiety. moreover, having my ear drums blown out by a sea of screaming pubescent girls was kind of an out-of-body experience. it was like a million of my 12-year-old self coming back to haunt me from my backstreet-boys-obsessed youth. i knew i’d pay for bad taste one day.
secondly, despite my grumpy demeanor throughout the show, my playlist inexplicably filled with kpop. maybe i actually like the stuff…or maybe i’m punishing my engineer by making him listen to the music he loves 500 times a day.
