Why a 25+ meme ?

Being a slightly older kpop and kdrama fan I (and a few others with me) always get a little disappointed by the friending memes.
Lots of 12-17ish year olds.  Nothing wrong with being that age (it's wonderful), but someone 25+ or even 35+ can get a bit
discouraged by it. At least that's how it is for me.
I suspect there might be lots of older fans, like me, who feel like that. If you're 25+ - 35+ you really don't have much in common with a
16 year old.That's a fact. It always keeps me from participating in the memes, thinking what's the use ?I'm thinking there might be more fans out there feeling the same way. So therefore the 25+ cut off. Also since this is a 25+ meme please only participate if you're in fact 25 or older !

Also this meme doesn't have a deadline. No need to comment within the first 5 mins after posting (though you're welcome to do so).
There's time zones and I assume most 25+ y.o. have college,work and families to deal with (that pesky real life !)

Please feel free to come back and check for new comments anytime, or for lazy people (like me :p) track this post for new comments ;)


We'll live it up under the city lights...

(Nick)name: Minka
Country: Australia
Kpop (incl. biases): U-Kiss (Eli, Soohyun, AJ), BigBang (Daesung, GD), DBSK/TVXQ/JYJ (Jaejoong, Max, Yunho), Shinee (Key), EXO-K (Suho, D.O., Baekhyun) With the exceptions of the obvious few there, I always seem to go for either the really manly ones, or the outright snarky bitches of the groups.
Kdrama (incl. biases): I’ve only watched Protect the Boss, but I LOVE Korean movies. Especially cop and gangster thrillers; anything with guns and martial arts, a bit of blood and a fly kick here and there floats my boat.
Movies like I Saw the Devil, A Bitter Sweet Life (well, anything with Byung-hun Lee is amazing), Our Town, Private Eye, The Man From Nowhere (that knife fight was AMAZING!), Psychic (or Haunters as it is sometimes called) is one of the best movies ever.
What can we find in your LJ (private/fan stuff etc) / how much do you post: My journal is a mishmash of all sorts of things; private, fan related, random rants, reviews… pretty much anything goes. I don’t post all that much though, however I am always lurking around here. I’ve been into Jrock for years, so that is my main fandom (kpop is all new and shiny) I also love Game of Thrones, Hunger Games and Spartacus. I love Japanese and Korean cinema though I never got into anime or manga. Again, same rules apply; if it’s badass with characters who throw a mean punch, then chances are I’ll love it.
Other interests (can be fandoms or hobbies or anything else): I am obsessed with Japan, so a big part of my journal is made up of that. I’ve been to Japan four times and am going back soon; I love posting and writing travel logs and journals, reviewing concerts and bars and sharing the hilarity of the stupid stuff I get up to.
What kind of friends are you looking for: Well, first of all, above 25 is a great idea. But then people with the same interests or with a crazy outlook on life are always welcome. You don’t need to post or comment all the time but i would love to have chats and rants every now and then. A love of travel would also be amazing.
Pet peeves: Right now, this whole ‘Bacon’ thing for Baekhyun. It bugs me. What is appealing about nicknaming him after a sizzled fatty piece of pig ass?
Twitter/Tumblr/FB/etc: http://www.tumblr.com/blog/minka-g
Anything else: What else can I say? Clearly I love Japan. I am at home in Tokyo and yet my heart belongs in Osaka under the glittery lights of Dotonbori and lost in the shimmering reflections of the canal. I’m much more of a crazy party girl than an otaku or even a fangirl; short dresses, killer heels that smash the pavement, curls and glitter makeup; all the things of the night. I love to travel, to drink and dance and smoke the night away, to meet new people, to talk to strangers and live on the wild side. Yakuza, bosozoku and bartenders are my friends of choice while motorcycle repair shops (where they only serve straight vodka) rock bars and clubs are the most likely places to find me.

I’m a creature of the night, loving to come home after the sun comes up and wake up after the sun goes down. I like city lights reflected against rain dampened pavement, steam rising into the cold air from building vents, the sounds of traffic lights on busy streets and things that go fast and hard. Street food, sake shots, Japanese policemen, gutter parties and loud music keep me sane.

Did you like Protect the Boss? I liked most of it, until the end. But the big thing I ended up with was a huge crush on Ji Sung.

I did enjoy it, actually. Though, like you, I did find the end a bit meh.
I went into it because of Jaejoong, so came out the other end convinced that he was amazing (him being a bitch was great). What I didn't expect was to actually really like Wang Ji Hye's character. She was fantastic.

I feel like it should've ended before the last episode.

That's why I went into as well. And while I was surprised that Jaejoong did so well, Ji Sung swept me off my feet, SIGH.

Wang Ji Hye was pretty good! I really liked her fantasy scene about making about with Jaejoong's character, that was awesome.
