There is a famous phrase in South Korea. It’s 수고했어 오늘도 (Sugohaesso Oneuldo) which means “You have worked hard today”. So I modified the phrase to 수고했어 올해도 (Sugohaesso Orheaedo) which means “You have worked hard this year” to say good bye to 2018.
If I were to describe 2018, I think “welcome to the adult life” is the most suitable expression. Probably it’s because this year was a whole new experience for me. It’s the first year in my life I started my full time job and you know “welcome to the adult life”. I knew it wouldn’t be easy, but i didn’t knew it would that hard.

Talking about K-Pop in 2018 is much different than talking about it in 2011, especially in Indonesia.
K-Pop was not very welcomed in 2011. Back then K-Pop fans were still marginalized comparing to other music genre’s fans. I think the case was even worse before 2011.
People would called us names like Alay, lebay, banci, plastic, and so on.
What I hate the most is when people said “K-Pop is too girly”

Yeah, right! This article is inspired by JYP’s music show, where Park Jinyoung (JYP) host a music-talk-show. One of the segments of this show is called “My Life OST”. In this segment, JYP and the guests would share their songs whic accompany them in daily life. A song that describe their life, a song that they will never get bored of, a song that at some point could be a soundtrack of their life. Like soundtrack of a movie or drama.

Is this really my first blog?
Actually no haha
I had several blogs since middle school. I started blogging back then cause I thought it was really cool (and still cool) for having online journal.
My friends and I were competing to design as cool as possible by adding widget, changing font, changing the color of font, and everything we could do to make the blog “looks cool” haha
I don’t even remember what I wrote back then. But I am sure I wrote bunch of embarrassing blogposts 😅

Finally, I watched Netflix version of Death Note. Until the very end. Surprisingly, I could watched it until the end of the movie. I am a big fan of Death Note. The real Death Note — of course. I have read the comic book twice and watched the anime twice also. Although, I am not really into the live action version but the comic and anime version are enough for me to know well about the story of L and Light Yagami.
