    Favorite Kpop #10: BTS

    BTS (Korean: 방탄소년단; RR: Bangtan Sonyeondan), also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a South Korean boy band formed in 2010 and debuting in 2013 under Big Hit Entertainment. They consist of seven members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook who co-writes and co-produces much of their own material. Originally a hip hop group, their musical style has evolved to incorporate a wide range of genres; their lyrics have often discussed mental health, the troubles of school-age youth and coming of age, loss, the journey towards self-love, and individualism. Their work also frequently references literature, philosophy and psychological concepts, and includes an alternate universe storyline. They have two current webtoons called Save Me and 7Fates: Chakho. Their music genres is kpop, pop, hip hop, r&b and edm. They have an anthology album called Proof that consists of 48 songs in total including their title tracks, solo and subunit songs also demo songs that was never released for the public to hear.

    They’ve accomplished a lot. I’m sure any fellow ARMYs out there are proud of them too. More info on their Wikipedia page here. My bias is Jungkook 💜 I like his vocals when he sings and he dances good too. The other members are awesome also. I like a lot of their songs even their solo songs that I’ve already listened to. My favorite Jungkook solo song is Euphoria 💜 Their last song as a group is called “Yet to Come” before the start of their solo projects. So far Jhope finished his solo album called Jack in the Box, he was at Lollapalooza and featured in Crush’s music video called Rush Hour which can be viewed here. His previous solo album, a debut mixtape it was called Hope World. RM was featured in Balming Tiger’s music video called Sexy Nukim. Also Suga was featured in Psy’s music video called “That That.” Almost Jungkook was featured in Charlie Puth’s song “Left and Right.” I’m excited when the other members are gonna release their songs too or featured in someone else’s video. I wonder what Jungkook’s next solo album is gonna sound like also it’ll probably sound awesome. Comment hi or something if you’re a BTS ARMY. Does anyone like their songs too? I’m just curious so I thought I would ask if there was a song you liked. If you don’t wanna tell me your favorite then that’s fine too. Bye for now until next review.

    Favorite Anime #10: Yugioh

    Yu-Gi-Oh! tells the tale of Yugi Mutou, a timid young boy who loves all sorts of games, but is often bullied around. One day, he solves an ancient puzzle known as the Millennium Puzzle (千年パズル, Sennen Pazuru), causing his body to play host to a mysterious spirit with the personality of a gambler. From that moment onwards, whenever Yugi or one of his friends is threatened by those with darkness in their hearts, this other Yugi shows himself and challenges them to dangerous Shadow Games (闇のゲーム, Yami no Gēmu, lit. “Games of Darkness”) which reveal the true nature of someone’s heart, the losers of these contests often being subjected to a dark punishment called a Penalty Game (罰ゲーム, Batsu Gēmu). Yugioh created by Kazuki Takahashi.

    Whether it be cards, dice, or role-playing board games, he will take on challenges from anyone, anywhere. As the series progresses, Yugi and his friends learn that this person inside of his puzzle is actually the spirit of a nameless Pharaoh from Ancient Egyptian times, who had lost his memories. As Yugi and his companions attempt to help the Pharaoh regain his memories, they find themselves going through many trials as they wager their lives facing off against gamers that wield the mysterious Millennium Items (千年アイテム, Sennen Aitemu) and the dark power of the Shadow Games. The anime genres are action, comedy and fantasy. Yugioh is a card game also like how it’s played in the anime where you strategize the moves until you loose life points.

    What I think of the anime:
    Definitely rate the anime ten stars out of ten stars as it’s very enjoyable to watch in my opinion also I recommend to anyone that’s never seen it before as you might like it too or you might not like it, guess it just depends on your preferences too. I’ve read there’s eleven series but I’ve only watched two series out of the eleven that’s listed on Wikipedia even rewatched two of those series more than once. I’ve also watched the two movies. I don’t remember when I first started watching the anime but it was probably during my middle school days. When I couldnt find anything good to watch I would rewatch either of the two series I like or one of the movies.

    I used to play Yugioh Duel Generations before the game retired in September 2020 and where actual cards are now needed to play the game but since I don’t have cards of my own I had to quit playing it. Yami Yugi, Bakura and Seto Kaiba are my three favorite male characters in the anime. Aigami is my favorite from the Yugioh: Dark Side of Dimensions movie and Yusei Fudo is my favorite from Yugiog 5Ds. I haven’t seen the other series yet but I’m sure they would be awesome to watch. Not much else to say to say about the anime. If anyone have seen Yugioh before I would like to know what you thought of it. I’m curious what you think of the anime. Comment your thoughts if you’d like.
