TATAdventures: The Witch's Side of the Hunt

It’s been a really long time since I last wrong a blog, more than a year, so I doubt I have much of audience left at this point. Writing essays constantly for uni pretty much means my incentive to spend my free time churning out several-thousand-word opinion posts has plummeted, and ironically it is procrastinating 2 essays that I am now writing this.

After running a twitter account for BT21 Character (and Kim Taehyung’s creation) TATA for a few months my person twitter (@AustralianSana) was dug up by popular accounts in the fandom. Threads were made about why I’m basically the worst thing to happen since whoever they were mass harassing last week and now I’m everyone’s favourite anti. I’m not particularly interested in changing those peoples’ minds, studies have shown that would almost be nearly impossible anyway as once someone has a strong opinion the more facts you present them with proving them wrong, the more strongly they actually believe their opinion. And if you’re the kind of person who sees a thread of screenshots without looking for their context and then decides that someone deserves to have thousands of people harassing their mentions, I don’t particularly want you enjoying my content anyway.

My AMAZING Mnet Countdown Experience (and how you can have one too)

The last time I wrote a blog about my Mnet Countdown experience back in 2015 it was fairly negative (half the line-up pre-recorded and didn’t show up for the live, security tried to pull me out of the crowd for being “too tall”) but my 3 experiences in the last month attending to see INFINITE have been fantastic, so I wanted to make sure there was a positive post on my blog. Additionally, I also wanted to share as much info with any people interested, that way you guys can all have an amazing experience and see your faves one day too. I’ve done my best to include questions I hear frequently along with some bonus tips.

Meet Me in the Pit: A VIP Fan Account of Big Bang's Sydney MADE Concert

This past Saturday, I had the luck and privilege to attend the Big Bang MADE tour in Sydney as a VIP. Whilst there were some minor hiccups in the beginning stages (pretty much expected of any concert) the event itself was a night to remember.

[Just For Fun] JYP's SIXTEEN Analysis and Prediction for Twice.

Over the last year I swear I've followed rookie formations more than I follow already debuted idols and one I've had my eye on is JYP's girl group.

Originally meant to debut under the name 6Mix, JYP has experienced last minute member changes with the departure of Lena (who you may remember from Sunmi's Full Moon) and Cecilia (Chinese Australian from Got 7's Girls Girls Girls and A MVs) leaving them to scrap plans for an April 2014 debut and head back to the drawing board.

Kpop's Unrealistic Beauty Standards and the Eating Disorders That Result

South Korean idols going to extreme lengths to maintain unrealistic standards of perfection is hardly unheard of in kpop and the latest idol to come forth appears to be KARA's Gyuri.

In a translated comment from KARA's appearance on Quiz To Change The World, Gyuri opens up about feeling big compared to Seungyeon and Hara's tiny figures.

She then proceeds to describe the unhealthy ways she tried to emulate their bodies herself.
