Babby Yellow Slug’s One Year Anniversary Post

We'll pretend this is for me.

We’ll pretend this is for me.

Today marks the first year anniversary for this little blog that almost, kinda, sorta grew up to be… whatever the hell this tiny corner of the K-Pop world is.

So, in a look back, here are what I consider to be the highlight posts over the past year.

1. Babby’s first post: Review: SECRET – “Poison”

A little rough around the edges, but SECRET will always hold a special place in my heart for making “Poison” and compelling one writer to launch a blog to purely hnnnnngggg over Hyosung. Because Hyosung is worth it.

2. Babby’s Best Review: Tie between BPPOP: “Today” and Ga-In “Bloom”

Sometimes, it’s almost as fun to tear into something as it is to spazz out. “Today” is probably the most negative review on the site as it’s not too often that something gets gleefully called “some form of pop music herpes”. But to be fair, it’s really fun to write that sentence. As for “Bloom”, it’s one of the few times where a K-Pop music video portrayed female sexual politics in a mature and refined way. One of my favorite releases from last year, and the review conveys it better than some of the other ones.

3. Most Popular Waifu Wednesday: Jeon Hyosung

4. The Best Waifu Wednesday: Wang Fei Fei

ALL HAIL THE GODDESS OF ALL CELESTIAL BEINGS AND RULER OF ALL THE UNIVERSE’S FEELS.

5. The Most Popular Man Candy: Kang Gary

There must be a ton of Monday Couple shippers out there who crave any and all Gary and Ji Hyo pictures (Please, please, please marry each other and make a lot of talented babies you two).

Those eyebrows. Sigh, those eyebrows.

7. Babby’s favorite post – HYOMIN CELEBRATES SURVIVING FOUR YEARS OF THE HUNGER GAMES THAT IS T-ARA

Sometimes, stories write themselves. This was one of those times.

And with that, one year has flown by. Thanks to y’all for reading and contributing with your ideas, thoughts, suggestions and spazzing. It’s been fun. Now, on to the next year, may it be filled of silliness and Wang Fei Fei.

    Congratulations and thanks for the awesomeness. Selca Sundays have become an addiction.

    1. Selca Sunday is best day.

  3. Congratulations on your first year! Apart from seoulbeats, you’re my favourite korean pop culture site.

    One of the things I love about the way you write is that you’re able to gush over female (and male) celebrities without being greasy or patronizing.

    Hope to see more from you!

    1. Thanks!

      Glad to hear that I’ve struck a good “tone”, which is always a concern when mixing K-Pop and internet culture haha.

  4. Didn’t realise that the blog is only 1 year old as I’m a new follower to not only this blog but K-Pop in general. Keep up the great work. I’m counting on you to keep me up to date on K-Pop news and Clara Lee photos. Greetings from Singapore.

    1. I will do my best. Clara Lee is quickly becoming a fixture around these parts.

  5. congrats on one year! i look forward to the next! seriously one of the best sites out there.

    1. Thanks Jon! Can’t wait to see what this next year brings either.

    Congrats! Selca Sunday is like the light at the end of a tunnel!

    Wishing you even more success in the future.

    1. Thanks, Selca Sunday makes it all worth while haha.

  7. If there were a Pultizer Prize category for “K-pop blogs”, you would surely win it.

    Thanks and keep up the outstanding work.

    1. First the Pulitzer, then the world, then Fei. It is the way natural escalation of things after all.

  8. A little late…lol but congratz on your first yr!! I love your man candy mondays even when I don’t know who some of em are,lol but I enjoy reading your posts and discovering new kpop groups and new biases XD

    1. Haha thanks. It’s why I field suggestions for Man Candy Mondays. It forces me out of my comfort zone of hnnnngggg too, which can only be a good thing (I think).

      1. It’s a always a good thing,lol you can never have too much biases the more the better XD

  9. Congrats on the year. Love your site.

    1. Thanks! Glad that people enjoy themselves around here.
