k pop collection

[Updated 26/09/17] K-Pop Photocard Sale/Trade & Wishlist

So first off… long time no see… I haven’t been active on this account for quite some time and to be honest I went completely off collecting any photocards. I basically just stuck to ones I got in albums and that was that.

However recently I’ve felt the need to at least try and keep up to date with my VIXX collection. They are my priority first and foremost. This is mainly a wishlist as in reality I have very little to trade or sell but I’ll be putting up those items either way.




Terms/Conditions/Rules etc.

- I’m ONLY looking for VIXX items only minus specific trades (all will be stated in wishlist down below)

- I have a couple of cards which will be trade only (4 girl group cards to be exact) and who I’m trading for will be stated.

- I am shipping worldwide from the UK and will only be accepting PayPal as a payment method! :)

- QYOP (I’m terrible at prices so please let me know what you’d be willing… I have some ideas in mind for price but feel free to offer anyway)

- Please be aware of shipping. I use hard protector sleeves (which I’ve completely forgotten the official name of whilst writing this - can you tell I’ve been away for a while! :P) *EDIT - I found out it was Toploaders which was the word I was after! XD* as well as a little extra padding/protection where I can…. this can bump up the weigh ever so slightly and therefore price. Shipping will also vary depending on your country - Europe shipping is usually between £1-2 where as the US is £2-3 so please take that into consideration. 

- Trade for trade rules. I will not do a ‘you trade first’ or ‘I trade first’ thing. We send off at the same time. Photo evidence of receipts must happen. The majority of post offices will give you a ‘proof of postage’ receipt if you ask. I won’t trade with people again and I will call out bad traders if these rules aren’t followed.

- I expect to be able to get in contact with you during our ‘business transaction’ (;D), I’ll let you know about when I’m posting items or when items have arrived and out of respect I expect the same.

- Please expect that I will reject offers, whether or not I’m buying, selling or trading I will reject offers if I don’t deem them suitable. That and the fact that I’m not rich so I have to be careful.

- When I’m buying or trading, I expect full photo proof (preferably with you username written down in the picture - shows its definitely yours then) and preferably some examples of previous transactions. I’ve luckily never been duped before… but I know it happens and I’m not stupid.

- Talking of photo evidence… I will provide photos upon request and in the same manner stated above. (full photos, username in photo etc)

I think that’s it for rules and regulations etc. If I think of anything I add it in due course! :)

My k-pop collection/room tour! :DD I have been collecting kpop stuff for two and a half year (: I know i wrote that i have been colletion for 2 years in the one i made a year ago. But yearh i didn’t really remember when i started, when i made that room tour, but now i know when i started! (: I have been into kpop for nearly 5 years, if you’re curious ^^

Today has been a troublesome day in the korean music scene.

Well, more troublesome than usual.

SMTM4 has me frustrated.

Mino has me conflicted.

Rapmonster has me disappointed.

Tao has me confused.

PCY hasn’t done anything yet. But I’m sure he will. 

Bobby has me turning into my mother. 

Zico has me turning into my father. 

And dark skin tones are still not joke-material. 

I need to review my bias list.

While chanting, ‘To err is human. To forgive, divine.’

anonymous asked:

OiSuga?? Pleaseee???

who’s the cuddler: both of them, totally, but for different reasons. suga gets snuggly when he’s happy, but tooru gets that way when he’s upset.

who makes the bed: suga, mostly because tooru spends a hundred years in the shower in the morning, and suga has nothing else to do while he waits his turn.

who wakes up first: neither of them, really. they both get up about the same time. sometimes, though, suga will get up ten minutes earlier so he can get into the shower first.

who has the weird taste in music: neither, really. tooru and suga both love j-pop and k-pop, so their music collection is basically one and the same. suga, however, does have a thing for a few western bands. he LOVES maroon 5.

who is more protective: tooru is more high-key about it, but suga will seek and destroy anyone who gives tooru shit for no good reason. or even FOR a good reason. 

who sings in the shower: both of them. tooru is a decent singer, but suga is actually REALLY good. they like to linger while the other is showering just so they can listen.

who cries during movies: dude, totally tooru. he cries when people break up. he cries when people get together. he cries when animals do something cute. suga thinks it’s literally the most darling thing in the world. it is, incidentally, why they tend to favor matinees, so tooru has a more private experience so a hundred people don’t see him blubbering.

who spends the most while out shopping: much to suga’s everlasting lament, tooru does. he is a gift-giver, so he is always buying things for other people when he sees something that makes him think of them. 

who kisses more roughly: suga, actually, and tooru LOVES it. 

who is more dominant: suga, again. he’s the more adventurous one, so he tends to take the lead more when they get intimate. tooru goes along wherever suga wants to go, and he’s never had cause to regret it.

my rating of the ship from 1-10: !!!/10

Let's Be Real (A Brief Discussion on Cultural Stereotyping and Ignorant Fans)

Kim Jonghyun is a prince. He’s been my ultimate bias since early 2009. I. LOVE. HIM. To pieces. I have had fangirl heart eyes for him F O R E V E R.

But he’s not perfect. No idol EVER is.

People (looking at you, genuinely unaware/intentionally ignorant fangirls/boys) tend to forget this fact VERY often, hence why fandoms get down each other’s throats when idols fuck up.

Jonghyun fucked up at his concert. He fucked up the minute he nodded his head, the minute he agreed to dress up as an Indian stereotype, then dedicate a full, uncomfortable 90+ seconds to his/his production team’s version of ‘Bollywood.’

To deny that he did wrong is to be ignorant. To bash someone for being offended by this is to be ignorant. To say ‘well, so-and-so did this so what’s the big deal’ in a gross, warped justification of cultural stereotyping is to be ignorant.

You. Don’t. Mock. Other. People’s. Cultures. For. Entertainment.

There’s this thing called ‘cultural competence.’ If you’re not willing to take the time to understand someone’s culture but instead act on your own biases, you are not culturally competent, you are the complete opposite.

There are people literally ALL OVER THE WORLD who suffer from stereotypes placed upon them (don’t even get me started on what happens here in the States. That is another can of worms I am not about to open on some of your un-woke asses.). To pretend that doesn’t exist is to be–have you guessed by now–ignorant.

This whole Bollywood scene in Jonghyun’s vcr shows that he and his production team lack cultural competence.

Do not make excuses for him. Do not make excuses for ANY idols who continue to make critical/important mistakes such as these.

Just because a small amount of people “aren’t offended” does not make it okay. That’s like saying 'well these Latinx aren’t offended by Mexican cosplay at a solo concert, stop being a SJW/so sensitive, it’s a joke" (see what I did there, Shawols, I know y'all know what I’m referring to). That attitude (surprise!) gives people the excuse to express racist, prejudiced, and biased opinions without fear of consequence, and invalidates those at the brunt of said opinions/remarks. Literally invalidates their beings and who they are as people because 'no one can take a joke.’

Let Jonghyun know his mistake. Help him learn! Instead of dividing the fandom because you don’t like when someone calls out your precious oppa, join together and be unafraid to say 'hey, dude, this ain’t right, and you need to know why.’

The fandom should know Jonghyun’s personality by now. It is more than likely that he will welcome this discussion so he can learn himself how other people outside of his country feel. The dude is LITERALLY a delicate angelfish (I say that affectionately) who cares incredibly deeply about this fandom, which is why we need to help him in a constructive and effective way to understand where he went wrong.

None of this is coming from a malicious place, but we as a collective K-pop fandom NEED to come together in an effort to positively educate our idols on things they’re obviously ignorant about.

Stop making excuses because they’re you’re oppa/unnie/noona/hyung. No one’s perfect.
