[I Live Alone Roundup] Rapper Simon D worries viewers with his recent appearance

NOTE: Apparently the staff had to persuade him for an year for him to agree to make an appearance on the show. 

1. [+3313, -121] I hope Simon D can really get along well with the people of 'I Live Alone'.. The people he's mostly meeting right now are all people who do music and because they're so lost into music I hope he meets the 'I Live Alone' people so that they can have small talks and they can laugh over things that are nothing, I think it'll be good if they can have meetings like that! 

2. [+1939, -42] It was so freaking funny when they were supporting ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1865, -32] I seriously almost died laughing when Gray showed up at the neighborhood's casual restaurant wearing a velvet party outfit ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+1214, -27] It was legendary when he turned off the TV ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: the members and Simon D gathered at Jun Hyun Moo's house to watch the World Cup match between Korea and Sweden and during the middle of the match, Jun Hyun Moo accidentally turned off the TV because he like sat on the remote or something LOL)

5. [+1145, -105] It seems like Simon D is going to keep coming out, Simon D is funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ he's so chill 
↪ [+338, -5] He looks less awkward with the members and Kian also gained another friend, whether he becomes a fixed member or a partial member - I hope Simon D gets healthier so that he can go have fun with them (t/n: Simon D talked about how he wanted to go on trips with the members after seeing their summer trip specials and LA special)

1. [+3702, -170] It was funny. Why is everyone saying it wasn't funny 

2. [+2303, -23] Rather than it (the episode) not being funny, I'm worried about him... it's not Simon D's former self, he's not even throwing back jokes, he seems empty and looks depressed, it doesn't seem like something to laugh about

3. [+2152, -40] In the past, Cheetah, Heize, Yook Joong Wan, I liked these artists' daily lives. Recently, it felt like they were showing a reflection of themselves that seemed really manufactured ㅋㅋ From that, I liked Simon D. That is what 'I Live Alone' is really like, is always meeting up with someone and doing something what people who live alone do ㅡㅡ

4. [+2127, -42] It can be like that..people are really screwed up...can only happy, upbeat, and funny people come out on TV

5. [+998, -36] Ki Suk-ang...why did you become so thin ㅜㅜㅜㅜ (t/n: Ki Suk is Simon D's birth name) 

He lost so much weight...
And he looked so stress about his music ㅠㅠ
I hope he's able to recover so that he's at a stage in life where he feels happy and comfortable ㅠㅠ
And honestly, I don't mind if he joins the cast - I always find Simon D funny

[I Live Alone Roundup] Han Hye Jin and Kian84 show off their DhalKi siblings chemistry

t/n: 'DhalKi' is from Dhalsim (Han Hye Jin's nickname) and Ki from Kian84. 

1. [+3473, -43] In this episode, DhalKi siblings' chemistry was really funny ㅋㅋ Han Dhalsim who pulled out Kian's hidden strength and Kian who gifted that type of nuna a poem and drawing, a present that's filled with sincerity, it was really good ㅋㅋ seriously, the members right now, their chemistry is the best.. ㅋ

2. [+1445, -44] Nowadays, Han Hye Jin seems like she got really pretty, as expected - love seems like a good thing 

3. [+868, -20] After this episode, I immediately went to check the Naver profile picture. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+716, -25] The members of 'I Live Alone' seem like they got more closer after last year's summer camp ㅎㅎ The members' chemistry is good but with the captions/subtitles that are really funny, it seems like they're killing it ㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: killing it as in they're doing really well)

5. [+700, -41] It was footage that showed that Han Hye Jin is a really nice person ㅎㅎ It was really nice to see ㅎ  

1. [+2732, -117] Kian84 is so funny!!! I also like Han Hye Jin 

2. [+1932, -64] Today was seriously hella funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ why was it so funny when he was pulling out poses ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Kian is handsome ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Dhalsim is seriously a good nuna ㅋㅋㅋ and on top of that, Kian who gifted her a poem and drawing because he was thankful, Kian is also such a nice person!  

3. [+644, -20] The pictures they took together was really nice to see and it was heartwarming! The best!

4. [+430, -15] Today was really funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+329, -19] Seriously DhalKi siblings were hella funny today ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ  

t/n: One of Jun Hyun Moo's nickname is 'maesaengi' because of his chest hair LOL maesaengi is really loose/soft seaweed

1. [+1849, -18] Today was seriously the most funny episode ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1396, -48] Han Hye Jin is really cool... she looks strong/tough but she's someone who takes well care of her own people and is a delicate style.. It's totally understandable that Jun Hyun Moo fell for her 

3. [+929, -22] Ah Kian x Hye Jin was crazy today ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ it was somewhat touching and totally funny, I thought I was going to die ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ also Kian is really photogenic ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+472, -30] It was really nice to see Han Hye Jin displaying affection without being excessive ^^

Han Hye Jin and Kian's part of this episode was so funny!
I love their chemistry together, you can tell that the members all care for one another ♥
It was my favorite episode from this year, personally I think it was funnier than the LA special LOL

[I Live Alone Roundup] Hwasa shows off her relatable charms, Han Hye Jin takes Kian84 shopping

1. [+3125, -42] This is what's real (t/n: real as in her episode was realistic), Hwasa let's become successful

2. [+1136, -19] The article sure has a lot of spelling errors

3. [+544, -31] She seems like a dongsaeng who lives next door and people all live the same.. She really seems friendly, she's cute and charming. ㅎ

4. [+364, -20] Do you not check for errors in your article, how can there be so many errors 

5. [+313, -40] Hwasa~ I really like how she doesn't seem fake ㅋㅋㅋ her unique charm is insane.. ㅋ

1. [+2644, -71] It felt like I was watching myself on a Saturday so it was really relatable ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ it was fucking funny without being fake ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1101, -26] The thing I felt while watching was what happened to all of that charisma that dominates the stage at home? ㅋㅋㅋ it was realistic and I really enjoyed watching her being comfortable. Especially all of Mamamoo... It really seems like a precious relationship that these people that fit well with each other all work together, Mamamoo fighting~~ 

3. [+1041, -132] No fakeness... she's really amazing~~~ After watching yesterday, I was hit by Hwasa's charm... she should be like this at home... not like Kim Sarang...    
↪ [+449, -14] There are people like Hwasa and there are people like Kim Sarang

4. [+896, -18] It really seemed honest. Especially when she tied a bun on to the top of her head ㅋㅋㅋ I feel like all women were able to relate to it ㅋㅋ

1. [+717, -15] I really liked Dhalsim and Kian's chemistry ㅋㅋ I feel like it would be funny if they started making episodes where two members of the Rainbow club members come out together 

2. [+398, -10] I really like Han Hye Jin these days ♡ Because she's sensitive and her pride is strong, she hid her tender heart, Han Hye Jin who pretended to be strong in front of others became soft after coming out on 'I Live Alone' and becoming a family with the other members~ She really became cute and lovely~ ㅋ It seems like she really cherishes the members of 'I Live Alone' like they're her family, especially Kian - she seems like she honestly pays attention to him and takes care of him ㅋ she also looks good with Jun Hyun Moo~ I like that you can tell that she seems happy.

3. [+443, -60] I was surprised after seeing Kian yesterday ㅋㅋ Kian was a handsome face ㅋ hairstyle is that important ㅋㅋ Kian-nim, that green shirt with jeans, your hair color and brow color really looked good on you, please wear that gray shirt at home now ㅋㅋ Han Hye Jin unnie is hella cool ㅋㅋ

4. [+196, -10] Why did Han Hye Jin become this cute ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+106, -8] Clothes really is important, the person really looks different ㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+2252, -28] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ No but it's really nice watching the scenes where Han Hye Jin and Kian come out in together ㅋㅋㅋㅋ They really seem like older sister and younger brother 

2. [+2168, -19] Because it's a variety show, they're trying to be funny but when you see Han Hye Jin, she seems like she's compassionate towards Kian84 and you can see that she wants to take care of him... Lee Si Eon is a bit rough when he takes care of Kian84, Han Hye Jin takes care of Kian warmly.. 

3. [+1063, -21] Because Kian was really avoiding radiant clothes, she purposely made him try out high fashion.. After that, because clothes that were vivid colors seemed like nothing, Kian wore it nicely.. she bought him all the clothes.. the clothes were really pretty

4. [+577, -15ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ After Kian saw Dhalsim wearing sci-fi glasses today ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ he said that she looks like she can calculate fast ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ ah he's really crazy ㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: these were the type of sunglasses she wore LOLOL - X)    

5. [+427, -52] Kian looks cool because he dressed up

[from ddoboja - 5月] What I've Been Watching, What I've Been Listening To, What I've Been Doing

Hello everyone!
I'm back with the May edition of 'from ddoboja'~
I just realized that I never posted one for the month of April... ㅠㅠ
April and May have both been busy months.
Towards the end of April and the beginning of May, the school semester was ending so I was focused on finishing final projects and my final exams ㅠㅠ
But the school year ended well, I got good grades, and now I only have my senior year left!
I can't believe I'll be graduating from college in one year

Now let's head on over to read what I've watched, listened to, and did during the month of May!

D R A M A S + F I L M S


I still can't believe this drama ended...
Personally, I think this is my all-time favorite drama of 2018
#fightme (ง'̀-'́)ง
I also wrote a review for this drama, you guys can read it here - 


This movie really impressed me!
I was worried about how they were going to make 100+ characters interact with one another without making it all messy but they made it work!
And don't get me started at the scene where Peter goes: "Mr. Stark... I don't feel so good..."
In Korea, there was a controversy over the subtitles because the translator who subs Marvel movies always makes mistranslations... 
You can read more about that here - X


Oh my god!!
This drama is sooooo refreshing!
I died during that gif scene LOL
I feel like this drama is really realistic and I really like the fact that the person who wrote the drama (and the book) is an actual judge.
I recommend this drama to everyone, even to those who are weary about Go Ara and L/Myung Soo's acting.
I was also in that position, Go Ara is a good actress but she usually always acts the same way and overreacts but I feel like that method works well with her role in this drama.
And Myung Soo has been getting praised for improving his acting! Even I can see it!
So make sure to check it out~



I just wish that they would've given Umji more parts, I'm so tired of people saying Umji can't sing 😤 She improved a lot!
My favorite songs on this EP are: 'TFTMN' and 'Bye'
I wish they performed 'Bye' live one day 😭
Alsoooo the Japanese ver. of their songs are also bops!


You might've also noticed that my posting schedule has been a bit off lately...
I just started my summer job so my hours have been insane ㅠㅠ
I'll try to post as regularly as possible but I really can't promise that I'll be posting drama/variety show roundups as soon as they air


For my work, my coworkers and I had to go to the beach area for our work retreat!
The weather wasn't that great but they had us do activities on the beach ㅠㅠ 
But we were still paid~ hehehehe~

I also visited my sister during my one week break and we spent a lot of quality time together 
This picture was from my flight.
My flight was at 7 PM so the sky really looked nice but I wasn't sitting at the window seat but I really like the vibes of this picture 

I started flying a lot during the past few months.
I usually fly to go and see my sister and I think I'm getting used to the idea of flying!
It's getting fun and I love the background noise at airports because everyone is just on the go, minding their own business.

I hope you are all doing well!
Stay healthy whether it is physically or mentally.
If you need a break, take it and don't be too hard on yourselves.

Well then... this is the end for today!
우리 또 보자~
(t/n: let's meet again~; uri ddoboja~) 


[I Live Alone Roundup] Kian84 opens up about his struggles with panic disorder

1. [+2516, -200] Stay strong. Kian~~ You're doing good enough by even appearing on TV like this. If the disorder was really severe then he wouldn't be able to come out... Thank you for coming out on TV like this. ^^

2. [+1365, -61] With creativity and deadline pressures.. it would be weird if he wasn't sick. Stay strong, Kian    

3. [+1655, -496] Stop saying Kian is misogynistic, because there were people saying he's misogynistic - I looked it up and there was nothing that you could say was misogynistic, why are you all trying to forcibly stir things up, the PD and staff also said there's nothing to make a response about but why are the so-called feminists saying he's misogynistic in all of his articles? 

4. [+859, -66] He definitely seems like he lacks social skills, why is it always sad - I feel bad ㅠㅠ 
↪ [+226, -3] These days because there's so many weird people, it seems like it's hard to even discuss social skills. Exactly what is considered normal and what is balance.. 

5. [+519, -55] Why are all of Kian's friends handsome ㅋㅋㅋ
↪ [+107, -14] If you look at pictures of Kian in college and when he was in the army, he didn't look bad either ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ    

1. [+2428, -121] Kian-ah, even if there are people who say shit, just live while knowing that there are people who support you 

2. [+731, -8] He's a hell of a lot better than those people who pretend like they're better than others 

3. [+718, -21] I think it's amazing that Kian moved back into a studio apartment so that he can get back into his original intention, even though he might have a lot of money too     

4. [+340, -27] I am a fan of Kian84! Don't worry about haters and stay strong, I'll always support you! ♡♡♡
