From Hawaii to Minnesota, ChicKens Finally Get to Meet KeNNyBoy SLaY at MOA Meet and Greet

As confused shoppers passed by Tomodachi, a store on the third floor of the Mall of America, they had no idea that inside was K-Pop YouTube sensation KeNNyBoy SLaY and the WNAX crew. That’s not a surprise, though, because aside from rapper/artist Salvmaknae and the Minnesota K-pop Dance Crew (MKDC), the land of 10,000 lakes rarely receives a visit from anybody within the K-pop realm. However with … Continue reading From Hawaii to Minnesota, ChicKens Finally Get to Meet KeNNyBoy SLaY at MOA Meet and Greet

SHINee Invites Dallas to an Extravaganza of Iconic Hits [Guest]

Until now, the SHINee World concert series had only descended upon Asian and South American countries, leaving many fans outside that circuit, myself included, scavenging the internet for glimpses of the show. But with K-pop’s massive popularity hike in the last few years, it was only a matter of time before SM Entertainment granted broader access to one of the most iconic streams of music to ever come out of Korea.

My First Korean Hiphop Concert

About a month before tickets went on sale a friend asked me to go see Kidoh at the Hallyu Entertainment KPOP ALL NIGHT event with her and another friend. At that moment, I had absolutely no idea who Kidoh was, let alone Topp Dogg, but I agreed because I had never even been to Kpop concert. We bought our tickets, booked the hotel, got our … Continue reading My First Korean Hiphop Concert
