DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!
Hey addicKts!!! You will never believe who this is. Many of you may not even know who I am. Wow, totally depressing out-of-the-blue random thought. O_O Yikes. Moving on from THAT bummer though because this is so not a bummer post and there's no room for that stuff here right now. If we haven't met, my name is Dongsaeng. Hi gals and guys! I started this whole blog thing and convinced my bestie, Unnie, to join me. Sucka! Then she and I kind of got wrapped up in sucky real life, and KMuse has been kind enough to take over the reins in our absence. Isn't she fabulous??? We love her!!!!! But enough about that for now, I'm too excited to contain myself anymore!!! I cannot WAIT to share with you what I came here to share with you!!!!!!
So, oh, I don't know, a few months ago maybe, my biggest blogging dream came true. And yes, blogging dreams are so totally a thing. Trust me. Mine included being asked to be a guest blogger on DramaFever (still waiting on that one by the way DF...) and one other dream invitation. Well, where as one has not come true (maybe DF just lost my number), the other actually has. Amazing, right? I mean, dreams can come true?? In real life? What is that all about? I wouldn't have believed it myself except for the email that shook my whole perspective on dreams and achieving them. One day, in my inbox, was an email I never dared hoped would actually come, but come it did. Oh yes, come it did. When I read it, I went numb from the shock. Then I hyperventilated, like for real, yo. Paper bag and all. Okay, not really. But I did freak. I mean, this was like the biggest accomplishment of my whole life! And I have made people and shoved them out of my body. And managed to keep them alive, even though I couldn't keep anything alive before them, not even a Chia Pet or cactus. Do you know how hard it is to kill a cactus? The instructions literally said that the more you neglect it, the happier it will be. Did I kill it with love? Maybe. Who knows? But that's beside the point! Why are we talking about this when there is such HUGE news to share?!?!? GAH!!!!
You ready for this? No really, are you??? Are you sitting down??? I am. Which is good, because even though I've had months to wrap my head around this, it still seems surreal. I've been DYING to tell you all, but wanted to keep it under wraps until I for sure made sure it wasn't some dream or scam. The excitement is still making me all trembly and nervous. And when I get nervous, I ramble. Add that to the fact that I am so totally and completely out of this whole blogging practice and then the rambling increases exponentially. Which is a bad thing considering what I'm about to tell you. It's going to make you wonder why in the world this invitation was extended to us in the first place. And then we'll be uninvited. Have you ever been uninvited from anything? I have. We were uninvited to my husband's cousin's wedding. It wasn't even for some weird family drama or feud or anything, it was simply a numbers thing. For real. Ouch, huh? So I guess I'm a little gun-shy now or something. However, we've been granted the green light by the powers that be to come out officially and announce this, so I'm going for it! I can't hold it in anymore! You ready?!?! Good!
Without further ado, it is my pleasure to officially announce to you that....
drum roll, please....
Ahem. *taps mic annoyingly* Is this thing on?
*clears throat as equally annoyingly and predictably*
Uh, uh, ah yes...
THE CRAZY AHJUMMAS ARE COMING TO KCON!!!!!!!
YES!!! You read that right! The KCON! As in the big, giant, 2-day Korean Hallyu event being held in Los Angeles on August 9th and 10th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As in like OH MY GOSH!!! US! At KCON! And yes, it will be all three of us there! Woohoo!!!! KMuse, Unnie, and myself. On a panel. As "experts". They call us "special guests". Special guests - US!!!! Three random suburban white moms, special guests at a convention for all things Korean. Will wonders never cease? Let's hope not, because that is just oddly awesome and quirky. And if there's anything I like, it's quirky.
Wanna know what we'll be talking about? I'm so excited about our panel! It is something right up my personal alley and I'm sure my Ahjumma sisters would agree that it is up theirs too! (*giggle* I accidentally said "up theirs" and then laughed - because apparently I'm the mental equivalent of a 10 year old boy). We will be discussing Second Leads and Love Triangles in dramas. How fun is that???
As I watch all the KCON news and announcements roll out, I just get more and more excited! I have attended the two previous KCONs and this one is bigger and better than ever! Two nights of concerts?!?! Dude! How freaking cool is that??? The lineup is going to be epic! I can't wait to see the next announcement as far as line-up goes that is coming out on the 30th!
Okay, so you are all coming, right???????? How fun would it be to actually MEET our addicKts face-to-face? If you do come, you have to promise to come to our humble little tent and support us and grab us afterwards so that we can chat! I know we're not like super stars or anything, but still... we want to meet you! So, you'll come, right? Come and say hi? Please?! Oh, I'll beg if I have to. I will. Just watch and see. I will get down on my virtual knees and plead, rubbing my hands together while rocking back and forth like a drama heroine and everything. Not that I'm desperate. Just excited. ;) So, how about it? Is it a date? You, me, KMuse and Unnie with thousands of our closest co-addicKts all together in one place to celebrate this amazing and awesome world that we love so much. Like a dream come true if you ask me.
