#StopAAPIHate

In light of the violence against Asian Americans, we wanted to strongly state our continued support for the AAPI community. As you know, we have a deep appreciation for stories and music from all cultures. It’s fair to say that this interest we share has even changed our lives, and we’re grateful for the Asian and Asian American people that continue to share their time and their passions with us. The Fangirls are committed to supporting people from all walks of life — Black, AAPI, LGBTQ+, and many more. 

In this excellent article from The Strategist — https://nymag.com/strategist/article/where-to-donate-to-help-asian-communities-2021.html — there are over 60 ways to donate to support AAPI causes. Each Fangirl has made a donation to a cause close to her heart, and we invite you to do the same.

Kmuse’s Musings: Why I Won’t Continue Watching The Item

Sometimes a drama comes along that looks like it is something you would really enjoy watching. It has a sci-fi concept and a great leading man. Sure, the leading lady might annoy you with her very existence. But…for a good story, that isn’t going to stop you from watching. But then you start the show and everything is just…off. Which, in turn, requires you to share your thoughts on what you just watched. And that is how this post came to fruition. So sit back (or avoid if you actually enjoyed the first two episodes) as I share my unfiltered thoughts about The Item.

Kmuse’s Musings: Going Back to School Kdrama Style

It’s fall!  The weather cools down, everything is flavored with pumpkin spice, and the kids go back to school.  There are a few times I envy my kids and their fun school shenanigans.  And whenever this happens I dive into the drama vault and rewatch some of my favorite school-themed dramas.  Because what is better than actually being in school?  Watching Seo In Guk being awkwardly sexy in school, of course.  Continue reading
