my favorite kpop things: 3/8/21

featuring artwork by jeop and fun ending fairies, flashcards for hangul & idols as berries

Here’s what I’ve been loving this week:

Jeup from IMFACT’s artistry

I’ve said it before, I know, but I really love when idols show off their off-stage talents. Jeup from IMFACT occasionally posts photos of his gorgeous calligraphy artwork on the group’s social accounts. This video gives you a little taste, but if you’re into this kind of thing, I strongly suggest that you follow them on Twitter for more.

SHINee’s Ending Fairies

If you don’t know the term, the ending fairy is the little pose that idols do at the end of a live stage before the camera cuts away. Every group does them but no one does them quite like SHINee. People have been taking notice during their comeback, too, so much so that ending fairy was trending on Twitter a couple of days ago. The above Tweet is my favorite since it shows so many at once.

Hangul Flashcards

You don’t have to speak Korean to enjoy kpop, but it definitely helps. I know about 300 words and phrases myself, and I love when I hear something I understand in a song. These Hangul flashcards a great way to brush up on your vocab. You can pick up a set for $20 on Amazon. If you want even more help learning Hangul, drop a comment on this article. We have a language learning group on Discord, and we can send you an invite.

Itzy Hero Dance Practice

This Itzy video resurfaced on YouTube for me this week, and I was absolutely delighted. Just look at these heroes and that sweet strawberry! Not only is Lia’s strawberry costume cute as can be but she is clearly loving every minute of it, even when she has to abandon her stem feet.

So that’s what I can’t get enough of this week. What was your kpop favorite thing? Let me know in the comments section.
