    From this thread Akorn Giveaway - The Lounge - allkpop forums

    I will now reveal the answers to the three questions


    1. I have mentioned somewhere here on AKP who my favourite artist of all time is - but what is my favourite song of all (Hint: it's by the same artist) Eminem - Stan

    2. Who is my kpop ultimate bias? I have never disclosed who that person is and it may not even be from a group that I like. Jisoo from Blackpink

    3. I have previously mentioned that I only became a kpoppie since 2019 - what was the song which converted me/made me like kpop? (Hint: It's not the first kpop song I've heard but its the one that made me go huh - maybe I should give this kpop thing a try) Ddu-Du Ddu-Du - Blackpink



    1. Fun fact that the word stan in kpop actually comes from this song about an obsessive fan who goes crazy over Eminem.


    This is iconic - Eminem feat. Elton John

    2. I first liked her since she was pretty but then as you get to see her more you find out that she personality shines 1000x brighter than her looks. Oh she can also sing and lowkey rap. She ain't Miss Turtle Rabbit Korea for nothing.


    One of her best covers showing her voice, elegance and beauty

    Looking forward to her own solo and snowdrop


    3. Like a lot of fans who got into kpop because of either BP or BTS it ws DDDD for me when I watched the MV - I was like who the hell are these girls - they can sing, rap, dance and they're pretty - so I looked into them further and then other groups as well...oh yeah that's a f***** bedazzled tank.


    Here's their iconic Coachella performance

    There are a few groups which although I'm not a fully fan of I do enjoy their story or their career paths shall we say.


    BB, IU and BTS


    What each of these three groups have in common - i will say is resilience (this is one of the key values or traits in a person which i admire and hold strongly)

    They all started out as nobodies - sometimes less than nobodies because no one gave them a chance they had to fight for and do everything themselves in order to succeed. A lot of times they could have given up pursued other careers - disbanded etc but they choose to stick around and tough it out - hard work perseverance and yes a bit of luck too.


    BB and BTS literally created YG and BH today - but for their successes YG and BH would never have been as big as they are. I'm not that familiar with the history of EDAM (former LEON entertainment)


    They are all artists instead of being mere kpop idols - they write, compose and produce their own music. All three have cemented their place as legends.

  • Wow, reading your first few (sorry to make my post about me, me, me)- you seemed similar to me except from a different generation. (Also i thot i knew you but i guess that was someone else). Ill follow you now fellow fantasy literature reader and kpop (blackpink) listener. Nice to know you.

    I like philosophical debates and questions about morality and humanity and so forth

    I like those weird tough questions like would you save the life of 1 innocent person over 5 guilty people or whatever.

    I like the question posed in Dark Night whether to push the button or not.

    I like question over utilitarianism v deontology


    I like ethics and business and how it is applied

    I actually like politics and religion - but only discuss it with the right people

    I like history and how people continuously repeat the mistakes of before

    In addition to basketball I can play a variety of sports

    I enjoy tennis but my stamina tends to give up on me.

    I used to play Australian Rules Football and cricket when I was younger but not so much anymore

    I can play soccer but I prefer to be goalkeeper.


    Basically any team sports that involve a ball I can enjoy


    Which also means I can watch any of the above and not get bored because I understand most sports.

    (just a short one today)


    Housework


    I absolutely hate vacuuming and sweeping and cleaning in that sense - I really dislike it but i don't mind doing other chores like laundry, gardening, washing the dishes etc but there is not a single vacuuming gene in my body.
