[My Obsession] ☆ Models and Uljjang Part I

So do you ever just have a moment where you're just like: "Wow I've got a fetish". Well that was me this morning when I downloaded like 500 photos of the model and actor Ahn Jaehyun. Like I'm obsessed! And I realized that I'm not only obsessed with this attractive guy, but have a good amount of actors and uljjang that my eyes enjoy ogling at.

Okay before I go on I know many of you obviously know what a model is, but some of you might not know what an "uljjang" is. "Ulzzang" or more correctly "Uljjang" literally means "best face" in Korean. An Uljjang is a popular South Korean term literally meaning "best face" or "good-looking". Originally used as a slang term, this word in the English lexicon has evolved into describing a person that follows specific style of fashion. Now that was wiki's definition, but an Uljjang basically is a person who yes, does follow a specific style of fashion, but mainly is just a person who posts pictures of themselves online. This might sound shallow, but they do it because they are attractive or other people think so. This sounds even worse but most of Uljjang actually edit their faces and stuff. But despite all this I love uljjang because a lot are actually nice people and are naturally attractive. Uljjang looks and makeup used to be very popular in South Korea, and although South Korea has a very natural trend going on right now, they still implement the "gradient lip" and simple "eye-line" into their makeup today. Okay I didn't mean to go on and on about Uljjang, but I just wanted to give people who know nothing about them some info!

I really love models and uljjang because I think it's so admirable how much effort they put to look the way they do and how much time they probably take to take care of their bodies and faces. I know many of these models have natural beauty, but even if this is the case you still have to put effort to take of your body and make sure your skin is taken care of because you're being shown to thousands of people for goodness sake! I'm just going to show you guys my favorite models and uljjang. It'd be so freaking amazing if we shared the obsession with any of these models, because we could become besties~. And if you don't know any of these models/uljjang go check them out, because they're amazing to look at!

Ahn Jaehyun
Ahn Jaehyun is a South Korean model and actor. So when I first noticed this hottie I was ''wow he is so attractive". I first noticed him on 'A Love From Another Star' (which is a fantabulous k-drama btw) and was so shocked because he looked like a LIL' WOOBIN. Like I was like "OMG KIM WOOBIN'S BROTHER WHAT EVEN!". Yeah and I was wondering why I've never seen this guy before. I then start to take notice of him on tumblr and I'm like "oh it's lil' woobin again!". So I see his name in the tags as "Ahn Jaehyun", and I just know it is time. I searched him up so excited and stuff because I thought I would finally have a Kim Woobin my age, but nope! I found out that he's 26, two years younger than Kim Woobin. And I'm honestly still in shock. What shocked me the most is that I realized I've actually seen him several times before watching 'A Love From Another Star'! He was in K.Will's Please Don't MV and Sistar19's Not Gone Around Any Longer video as well. He was also apparently in the Korean show 'High Society' as well. So I actually have seen him earlier, but never paid attention to him, smh. Anyways he's my latest obsession and I love him to pieces even though he's older than all my biases. <3

Betty Adewole

Betty Adewole is a British model. Guys, I'm in love with this model. She literally like so perfect in the way she looks. If I could look like anyone in this world it would legit be her. She's Nigerian (like me!) and she is just so freaking pretty! I really love her eyes and nose, and like everything basically. She really has nice face porportions. But back to her eyes, I really love them because they're really "chic-like" and she has some aegyo-sal. I just love her she's so classy!

Francisco Lachowski
Even though google always has to help me spell his name, Francisco is a Brazilian fashion model. And may I say he is like the hottest guy ever? Although he's married and has a kid he's still got it. His child is even more attractive them him, haha. Anyways Francisco is always that guy I always saw on tumblr and always thought was attractive, but never did my research. But the day I did, was the greatest day ever--because he's so hot!

Kim Woobin
Can I just say baeeee????? Seriously Kim Woobin is bae. I don't care if he has a model girlfriend or if he's two years older than Ahn Jaehyun, he is bae! I love him so much, omg I sound like such a creepy fangirl. But seriously Kim Woobin is love. He's literally perfect. Like guys I couldn't say that about my other favorite models, but I can say it about Kim Woobin! He's a South Korean model and actor. And he's even better at acting than modeling and it makes me want to cry. I first saw him in White Christmas, but I didn't go cray about him till School 2013. School  2013 was amazing btw, and his acting and bromance in it with Lee Jongsuk was just like made me wanna die inside. That drama and he was amazing. Kim Woobin is also so freaking chill and nice to his fans. Although he looks kinda uptight and mean and oftens play the 'bad boy' in his dramas and movies he's seriously the nicest guy ever. I really want to watch his latest movie Friend 2 and was so mad when it was the day before I had the ACTs, so there was no way I could see bae! Hopefully I can see it soon when I find a link, ugh. Anyways yeah Kim Woobin is bae and will be bae forever. 

And yeah that's it for the model portion! Next is the uljjang portion, because I'm going out soon for Valentine's Day and guess what? I'm finally going to get a pink 3DS XL! Finally guys, I'm so excited. I hope you guys have a nice Valentine's Day and spend it with your significant other or family! Oh btw anytime you guys see brackets around a title that probably means it is going to be a series. For example [K-pop Corner] is a series which I will continue to add onto and do. And yeah that's it, bye guys!

[K-pop Corner] ☆ BTS- Boy In Luv Review

Hi guys, I'm back with a review to one of my favorites kpop groups out there: BTS! This is something new I'm trying out, and something I feel like I'm really going to like~ If you read my previous k-pop post you'll under why I love this group so much. They're something I haven't seen in my five years of k-pop, basically since Big Bang. And Big Bang is amazing okay? Anyways they're amazing too and let's get on with the review!

Initial Thoughts
At the time I heard of Bangtan's comeback I was much into Got7 and spazzing about Youngjae, Jackson, and the rest of them. And personally I can't be hyped about two groups at once, it just doesn't work that way. So I honestly and sadly admit I really wasn't even as hyped up about this comeback as I usually am. I honestly had to force my self to listen to their first video teaser and thank God I did because that's when I began to become a 'lil excited. By the time I listened to the second teaser album preview and watched their MV teaser I was soOOOOOO EXCITEDDDD. Like no joke I was like hopping around like "ooooohhhhh!". Yeah it was kinda cray.

Outcome of MV
When the video started I was so hyped because Taehyung was freaking getting it! And I keep forgetting how deep his voice is! The people who really caught my attention were Jungkook, Taehyung, Jimin, Jin, J-hope, and Suga basically in that order. I don't want to spoil it that much if you haven't watched the video so I won't really elabaorate, plus I'm too lazy, aha.  But I do have to say that Suga's part was just like WOW. And overall all of them were really GETTING IT LMAO. Anyways Namjoon didn't really catch my attention that much to be honest. I felt like his presence wasn't really as hard as it usually is. The MV was really nice and, but I really thought it was kinda "wtf" when they kept treating the girl so roughly and then they suddenly just serenade her at the end???? But then after watching the reactions to the MV I totally under why they made the MV the way they did! :)

Thoughts/Outlook on the MV
Okay so what really made me like this MV were the LYRICS. The lyrics were on-screen so I knew what they were saying as the MV went on. And wow I realize that this is their first official MV where the lyrics are about actual "love". But the whole concept of the MV and lyrics are so freaking cute! It's basically about this "bad boy" who likes this girl but doesn't know how to tell her. He's wondering if he should take her on a date, write her a letter, etc, but really doesn't know what to do! So he's just really frustrated and since he's a "bad boy" he's taking to just kind of bullying her, haha. You remember when you were elementary school and that's what guys did? So that's why Jin and Suga were being such dicks to her at first. I honestly thought this MV was the cutest thing ever, despite the "bad boy" concept.

Will I buy the Album?
I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to buy the album, because I do! But I have two BTS albums already and guys they just debuted last year like. I feel so bad that I'm not buying other group and solo singer's albums that I really like. Like what if I meet them and don't have their album? What are they going to sign, my hand?? And plus I'd be too embarassed to not have their album too. Despite this, I'm definiely buying BTS's 1st full length album whenever that comes out! I also hope they do take of themselves, because apparently J-hope fainted during the shooting of the MV. I hope they don't push themselves too hard during promotions. :(

I'm currently waiting on my freaking E-bay stuff to arrive, but it's taking forever! But still, watch out for a haul hehe! Bye-yeom!
