There’s been an influx of new kpop fans in the last couple of years, brought in by the debut of bands like EXO/BAP/VIXX/BTS/etc, and that’s great, it means the party’s gotten bigger. But it’s come to my attention that a lot of the newer fans haven’t really dipped their toes into anything that happened earlier than 2012 or so, as exemplified by EXO performing Mirotic at an awards show and many of their fans having never even heard of this song before. And that’s a shame, because there’s a lot of good music out there. So I’ve compiled a list of, well, kpop hits you might have missed from the years 2008 to 2010, when kpop as we know it started really taking off. These are all in order-ish of the year they came out:

(I tried my best but most of these MVs are not in HD because back in the day we were lucky if a video was in 480p. The struggle was real.)


[x]: Because people were too lazy to watch the video, but instead, took [x] at face value.


To whom it may concern, we didn’t want it to end like this. We wanted to live. This world is out of love. This world is dying. This world doesn’t deserve us. That is why we have to go. Our story’s been told. We will go, but we will remain. You’re killing yourselves bit by bit, without even knowing. You are the Suicide Room.

seeing people throw around headcanons and suddenly the whole fandom accepts it as canon

You guys continue to reaffirm my beliefs when I first joined the wonderful Maleval fandom: I’m lucky enough to be a part of one of the coolest, most supportive, dedicated and respectful communities ever. 

I can’t even wrap my head around how this fandom has such a high concentration of truly sweet, good-hearted people—just WOW. 

So that said, I wanted to thank you. I hope we continue to grow in not only appreciation of the characters of Maleficent and each other’s creativity, but in friendship and camaraderie. And I have no doubt that that is exactly what will happen. I love you guys with all of my heart, I really do. God Bless you all!

I sit here and wonder when people are gonna move on from the whole “frozen is racist” and “disney is racist” shit and move the fuck on?


if we don’t fight for our snacks, we’re letting the machines win.

smoking doesn’t make u a bad person, it’s not like u smoke a cigarette and then u become satan… stop shaming people for their habits/addictions damn

I'm Yours

Okay I got a prompt sort of like this and I also got the inspiration from the ring picture circling the blogs. This is what I hope happened. <3

I hope y’all like this. I think It’ll be a three parter, but I don’t know yet! :) If you don’t like the ring thing I’m sorry! I hope you read it anyways! :) I love you! Always- J
