Please don’t ever feel bad for wanting to know Korean because of your favorite Kpop group. My mom, who is fluent in both English and Spanish, told me that the main reason she learned Spanish when she was a teen was because of a popular Latin band in the 70’s and now she gets paid more for knowing another language that she uses everyday. So don’t ever think that learning a new language because of something you like is a terrible thing to do. Whether you stop liking Kpop at some point or not, you still have this skill that will benefit you in the end and help you enjoy a different culture.

sm entertainment’s twentieth anniversary trip to hawaii was delayed from august 26th to august 28th for an unconfirmed reason. in the article confirming this, snsd, shinee and nct (most likely members of nct dream) are not in the groups listed as attending. this is likely due to individual schedules overlapping and shinee being in preparation for both their concerts and their comeback.
