OMG IT’S TIME FOR WII BOWLING… Wait, hold on. Oh…they’re playing the real bowling. WELL EVEN BETTER.

So to make this fun, we gonna count how many gutter balls they get. (Side note: hopefully I don’t go up to 20)  (Second Side note: Too bad this isn’t the Wii Sports one, I wanted to watch one of the members throw the Wii remote and break the TV LOL DO YOU HOW HILARIOUS THAT WOULD BE.)


        Anyways, let’s begin! With this being the last episode for EXOMENTARY, I believe they picked the perfect thing to do for the last shazam!

The boys of EXO start off by just reviewing the past episodes. [Check our past reviews for those or watch them now with V.LIVE]  After that, IT’S TIME FOR BOWLING!! BUT WAIT, THEY’RE GONNA BOWL WITH SUPER POWERS!!!!

Yes, super powers. But I will explain that later on.


So they split into 2 teams of 4 and whoever has the biggest score after 10 frames wins FOOD!!! (and some beauty products that Chanyeol went crazy for, me TBH)  

So for picking teams they play a game.There are 9 coffee cups in front of them, 4 of them have coffee in them and the other 4 have fish sauce.  The ones that pick fish sauce are on one team and the ones that pick coffee are on the other team. Suho got fish sauce, D.O got coffee, Xiumin got fish sauce, Lay got coffee, Baekhyun got coffee, Chen got fish sauce, Sehun got coffee, Chanyeol for ICE (means you are on no one’s team and you can pick a team to play one frame for, aka Mr. Radish), and Kai got fish sauce. So now we have our teams! SO NOW THEY START.

Now, to explain the special powers. These powers can be used once and they don’t know what it is until they use it…Once again, it took them 15 mins to tell rules and get ready. LOL

At this point I was screaming PLEASE THROW THE BALL ALREADY.


Now, the teams pick the first members to go and Lay and Suho go up. This was when Lay told Suho “ladies’ first, which in return, Suho was shocked and gasped LOL.


But, that was not the end of Suho’s sad teasing. He was actually the first to GET THE FIRST GUTTER BALL!!!! HA!

Now, for the rest of the members. Lay hit 8 pins (good job). Chen got half. Suho went again and got 8 poins, and  Chen goes up and gets a gutterball. (gutterball #2)

Lay does an ok shot and only gets 3 pins. The boys continue to take turns shooting, and failing at many points.


Throughout the whole episode, we can see how close the boys are. They tease each other, laugh at each other, celebrate strikes (BAEKHYUN YOU GO MAN), and basically, just naturally show how well they get along. This was one of the most enjoyable episodes of EXOMENTARY, and I can honestly see why they left it as the last episode. It’s something you literally have to watch for yourself to get a feel for. It’s full of funny moments, relatable moments, and just moments where you can’t help but love these boys more than you already do. The quality of the video was amazing, the sound was perfect, and overall, ended with an amazing bang. It was literally the grand finale we were hoping for, and we’re actually sad that it’s now over.


At the end of the video, the boys thank the fans for supporting and watching them throughout the broadcasts. They say that they would love to do more VLIVE broadcasts and hope that everyone will support them in the future as well. Overall, it was a great episode with intimate moments, as well as hilarious times. We give this episode 5 out of 5 for the perfect shazam ending. We’re literally going to miss you EXO!!!

BTS GIFT VOD EP 4:Random Moments with BTS!

Let’s give it up for the Lost Boys!

Oh wait, I mean, Bangtan Boys!


It’s time for Vehind cam, where we get to take a look inside the behind the scenes of BON VOYAGE Episodes! Today, we’ll be reviewing “BTS Behind The Cam Episode 4”! Are you ready?


It begins with Rap Monster narrating the current situation. Apparently, Suga decided to go outside and get some fresh air, which ended up with him having to go through customs TWICE at the airport. Of course, because as BTS always does, they teased him about it! Oh, Suga!

It quickly moves on to Jungkook, who’s singing because he’s bored, wishing he was already in Sweden. At this moment, we learn that the boys are actually leaving Norway onto their next destination, which is indeed, Sweden.


The scene switches to Taehyung on his flight alone, saying that his members once again, left him, but that he will see them soon! Soon after that, small scenes begin occurring, with of course, the boys just being bored and ready to head to Sweden.


At times, there were little mini scenes of them during their time arriving in Sweden, with Jin and Jimin on the train. Jimin, who’s just #DONE with Jin, moves away from him as he basically tells some really old man style jokes (really Jin). Still in the train, it shows Jimin and Jin enjoying a random man’s performance on the train. They clap for him and tell him that he was good.

Scene changes, and it’s Jungkook and Suga saying how worldwide they are. They laugh. Silly boys.


FINALLY! We see glimpses of Taehyung and his shenanigans trying to find goats and all kinds of animals in the country side. He gets a little hungry and searches through his stuff and finds himself some emergency gum. At some point, he has a small reflection time, that looks like a very emotional painting. #NextVanGoghInpsiredWork


Quickly, it switches to Rap Monster and Suga who are talking about Swedish Kebabs and wanting to try them. Really random, guys. Really, random.

Now, it’s Jimin and Jin, walking down the streets with their luggage, talking about random things, and how Jin is always right. Okay momma Jin. Okay.

Overall, as the video continues, it shows a bunch of random moments that did not make the episode cut. This short episode sort of reminded me of a director’s cut edition, where you get to see parts that did not make it into the final film of the movie. We really did like this, because you get to see some really random moments, as well as see some random stuff they talk about. We get a peek at some intimate moments, for example, how in one scene, Rap Monster is teaching the boys English on the train, and another where the boys are trying to get directions to go to a specific location. It really shows how hard they try, and how determined they are despite language barriers.

Eating at Night(markets)

After a very abrupt realization that the sky was actually clear of clouds in Vancouver one day, my friends and I decided to abruptly travel an hour by bus to the night market! (For those who have never been to a night market, especially an asian-themed/asian-dominated one… I highly suggest you find one and visit it!)

I would safely say that 90% of people who go to the night market are more interested in the food than the actual stalls that are selling objects – I mean, they have glowing drinks!


Well, technically, it’s an “ice cube” light that has an internal battery which is activated by water. (A physics electrical circuit thing. Water completes the circuit which is left incomplete. I dunno. It’s complicated. I run away from physics.)

The night market also has game stalls set up (which basically take money straight from your hands):


The infamous ring-toss game. My friends wanted to try it for fun, but I stood at the side and agonized as I watched them pool money together to get a huge bucket of plastic rings… There was this article somewhere on the internet that explained why it’s near impossible to win this game. (Something about how the bottlenecks are shaped.)

Side story, I tried applying to be a games attendant for the night market once. It was a group interview, completely insane, and used up like a million years of my time. The bosses were more interested in making money and seeing who could sell stuff the best, but honestly – games attendant. GAMES. You’re supposed to make it fun, not try to one-up how much money you’re taking from the poor child who wants that large stuffy.

Anyways. Back to my main topic – food! Let me begin with my appetizer for the night – Taiyaki.


Taiyaki is a Japanese treat, made from a cake batter poured into a special mold. Traditionally, it is filled with red bean – which is what I decided to go with – but the night market offered flavours like custard, oreo, etc.

I was kind of disappointed that the mold they used wasn’t the full mold with the face of the fish on it (which made it really non-photogenic), so I ripped it in half instead for the photo.

Next on the menu was chicken karaage (ka-raa-geh)!


Honestly, you can’t hate this, and you can never screw up making this. It’s fried, boneless chicken thigh with a delicious sauce.  It’s normally topped with green onions and sesame seeds, which make it even better.

Continuing, we have Ika (or more commonly known as squid feet)!


As you can see in the photo, it is crowded as hell… the one downside to these night market adventures. I’m extremely short, so I get lost in the crowd easily, and I can’t see where I’m going.

Grilled squid feet! Mmm. There’s also fried squid feet (Ika Geso), but I had already eaten fried chicken thirty minutes before…

Lastly, for dessert…


Mango patbingsu (a.k.a shaved ice)! The best type of shaved ice is snow milk shaved ice, where they use an even-more special machine to shave the ice into microscopic sizes, and it just melts when it touches anything other than ice because it’s so small. It’s also infused with milk, which gives it a nice texture and flavour especially when it’s shaved into such small pieces. Find a place that will use almond milk and woooo that $10 spent on frozen water and fruit is really worth it.

That marks the end of my food journey for today! There were honestly so many other places I wanted to buy food from… there was fried yogurt/ice cream (you know, the one where they spread it on a metal surface and then scrape them into rolls… omg), rotatos (a potato sliced into thin strips and skewered so that it looks like a ribbon wrapping around the stick), ddeokbukki (spicy rice cakes), Hawaiian poke (poh-keh; raw assorted fish on top of rice), candied fruit… so many things I wanted to try, but my wallet and stomach could only handle so much.

I apologize if I made you drool over your keyboard!

#EXOMENTARY: Favorite Episode!


Hey guys!! After reviewing all the ‪#‎EXOMENTARY‬ LIVE videos, I came to choose that “Home Cooking with Chef D.O. is my favorite one out of all the videos. Maybe it’s because I’m biased but D.O. looked so cute and handsome cooking! Some fans even called him the, “Serious Cutie Chef,” I can definitely agree to that! Even the Kim Brothers said he had pretty hands while cooking, which is true because D.O. had me hooked in. If you love cooking and learning some really great tips then this is the video you want to watch!


The two dishes he cooked was bean paste stew and Korean pancake. Some of the tips he mentioned are really good if you want to prefect this dish or for future reference when you want to impress your friends and family. One of them is the rice, if you want good nice dry rice, it’s best you clean the rice until the water is clear and let it sit for 30 minutes. That will give you that nice dry rice you see in Korean restaurants! Next being the bean paste stew, D.O. said it’s best you cook the meat in medium heat that way you don’t turn up with burnt meat. Next, when your meat is all cooked ready to add in the water make sure you add in hot water not cold. By adding hot water the beef keeps its flavor because, if you add cold water your meat will start to stink lose all the yummy flavors. I don’t think you would want to serve stinky meat to your guests! I think this tip goes for all types of stews and soups too! By the way, all these tips came from his lovely mom! Thank you Mrs. Do for the lovely cooking tips~~^^


D.O. was awfully quiet during the show but it’s understandable because, he was concentrating on his cutting, seasoning, and cooking etiquette! Which I was very impressed because, not a lot of people know the basic simple etiquette of cooking. I loved how neat he kept his station, how precise he cut the meat and veggies, and still manage to have a lovely cooking show!!^^ He also mentioned his mom a lot which was cute because you could tell he loves spending time with his mom when he can. He wondered if his mom was watching and made a cute s/o, “Mom are you watching? -Laughs cutely-” D.O. did say he got to spend time with her the day before the cooking show.


The way he interacted with the fans was super cute and funny because, he would ask questions about EXO and answer them himself 😂. The first question was, “Which EXO member is the pickiest eater?” D.O. answers with, “We all eat very well but, Chanyeol and Sehun would be the ones I choose.” Which is funny because I didn’t expect Chanyeol being a picky eater he looks like he can eat anything LOL. The second question was, “Which EXO member is not picky or eats well?” He answered with, “Chen, Xiumin, and me.” I wasn’t surprised really because, I remember when they used to call Xiumin Baozi because of his adorable cheeks!! Last question was, “Which EXO member cooks the best?” D.O. quickly answered, “No one😂. The members and I don’t cook so I can’t say much.” Sorry D.O., but I’m going to have to disagree because after watching your cooking show, I have to say you look and cook like a true born chef!!^^

Towards the end, the “Fantastic Kim Brothers” came and invaded his cooking show! The Kim Brothers came to taste D.O.’s lovely delicious food! They both enjoyed his food and complimented his nice dry rice, yummy spicy stew and crunchy delicious pancake!After watching them eat so well it made me really hungry^^ 😋

To give back to his fans he made a little giveaway challenge. He asked the fans to create an innovative fun name for the dishes he cooked. The fan who came up with the best name would receive a necklace and a pair of earrings with the EXO sign on it!! How cool^^ Awww lucky fan who won the prize!! The Kim Brothers helped D.O. choose a cool name and the name they all choose was, “Falling in D.O.’s Pancake! How clever is that!!^^ Super cute~~

Many great highlights in this episode with Chef D.O.! I surely did learn a lot about cooking and I have to say that it did gave me a lot more confidence to cook this dish now. With the helpful tips D.O. mentioned I’m sure I can perfect the bean paste stew and impress my friends! I hope in the future there are more episodes like this because, it brings out a different and softer side of the person. I would love to see Taeyang from BIGBANG cook too (I heard he’s a great cook), Ravi from VIXX (because he looks serious and charming when cooking) and BTS or Infinite or Teen Top (hopefully those groups don’t catch each other on fire LOL😂)

That concludes of my favorite episode on the #EXOMENTARY LIVE videos!! Sorry for the long post but it was needed because so much greatness I had to share with ya’ll~~^^

Thank you~~!!

BTS BON VOYAGE EP. 2: The Mountain of Lost (J)Hopes


What Happened in Bergen? With TaeTae’s Adventure!


First and foremost, this episode was actually quite shorter than expected! Compared to last episode (which was about an hour to an hour and a half long) this one was only about forty-five minutes which made it an easy and smooth watch.  Although not much happened throughout the whole episode compared to Episode 1, this episode was just as interesting.


While the boys of BTS walk around town, enjoying local festivities, Taehyung is finally on his way to Bergen! On his way to the airport, he calls his father and lets him know where he’s going. His father wishes him safe travels, and Taehyung makes his way to the airport, where he is slightly confused. At first, I thought he would’ve gotten way more lost than the rest of BTS, but to my ultimate surprise, he actually had a smooth time getting through the airport and making it to Bergen. Guess the most 4D member might also be the most clever LOL.



Meanwhile, the boys of BTS in Bergen are split off into two groups with Suga missing. One group, consisting of Jimin and leader Rap Monster, decided to hike their way up a hill to see the city view of Bergen, while the other group consisting of Jin, Jungkook and J-Hope, decided to take the monorail to the top. On their way to the top, Team A (RM & Jimin), had some trouble continuing because they grew rather tired after a while. I found this quite funny because it’s relatable. As they hiked up, Jimin decided to joke around with RM and do the dance to “Fire” while hiking. It was quite cute!


Meanwhile, Team B figured out how to buy roundtrip tickets from up to down the mountain. As they made it to the top, they took photos and looked like total tourists. Once at the top, they walked around and took photos of the view, meeting up with Rap Monster and Jimin as well.


All while this was happening, Taehyung had made his way to Bergen! Because he was so hungry, he decided to stop buy a restaurant with his manager and bought them lunch with his own Visa card! As they finish their meal, they go off and walk around Bergen, finding a carnival, and seeing how beautiful the city actually is. He slowly but surely, makes his way to the hill where the rest of the boys are.


As the boys up on the hill decide to make their way back down, J-Hope realizes that he lost the roundtrip tickets. The boys joke around and name the mountain/hill “the Mountain of Jhope’s Lost Tickets”. A random local finds his tickets and approaches him, and hands them over saying that he found them. J-Hope, being so grateful, tells the tourist thank you many times, and bows. The boys finally make their way to the monorail and midst going down, Rap Monster realizes that he forgot his bag on a bench.


The boys are laughing because this is the second time a member loses their bag in Bergen, and thus to retrieve his bag, Rap Monster is told to rap about it. His manager is pleased with his rap, and hands over his bag which he was actually hiding. Everything is now at peace and Rap Monster was played by his manager. #TRUEMVP


As the boys make it down to the bottom, they find Taehyung and reunite with their fellow member. The boys decide to head out to find some food, and go separate ways depending on their preference of food. The episode then ends, leaving us wondering, what will happen next?

From watching this second episode, I have learned a lot about BTS. For starters, these boys LOVE their food, and have quite good taste in some yummy looking cuisine. As for the video quality, it was great! Although subtitles were not as fast as they could’ve been and lacked a bit, they were still generally good enough to help you understand what exactly the boys were saying. The editing of the video reminded me so much of American Hustle Life with pop up thought bubbles and what not. It made the episode much more enjoyable and fun. The actual content of the episode lacked just a bit as we were never told where Suga was, or what exactly was he doing, but that’s fine! We’re hoping that next episode will be packed with more things rather than just one specific time period.

Overall, we have truly been enjoying this series and earnestly recommend purchasing it. It’s completely worth it, and with the fact that you can also download episodes and view them later, is such a plus! If I ever need something to watch and want to have a good laugh, I can go back and watch the episode I had downloaded previously. It truly is like a small piece you can take away from each airing.

TL;DR: If you love seeing idols in their natural states while acting like a fool, this is totally a series for you! Although Suga didn’t appear, we thoroughly enjoyed this episode regardless. We’re hoping more exciting things will happen in the next episode so stay tuned~!

BTS BON VOYAGE EP 1: Chaos, Coming of Age, and Ramen



BANGTAN BOYS! Have a safe trip!


Today’s review will focus on episode 1 of BTS’s BON VOYAGE, a series exclusively on VLIVE+!


The episode began with the boys of BTS sitting in a library-like setting, ready to start the first episode of their Bon Voyage series. They introduced themselves one by one stating their name and a small greeting. BTS member V is not present due to a his drama schedules. The boys explained that they went to Northern Europe, Bergen, Norway to be exact! As the come to a conclusion on their opening commentary, the episode begins and this was when the real fun began.


If you like watching your favorite idols in their natural states, this episode is for you. For this episode, the boys of BTS are packing for their trip to Bergen, Norway. Each member was allowed one carry on bag to take to their trip, so you can imagine how much chaos was happening in their dorm room, which we see in the video! Each member struggled hilariously to pack enough clothes to last them while trying not to overpack (coughs Jimin coughs). Resident dancer and vocalist Jimin was shown struggling quite a lot to close his suitcase, which made us laugh. To be quite honest, we can say that this really reminded us of our KPD trip to Orlando for the VIXX showcase. We had certain members pack their whole house in their luggage to the point their luggage created an ERROR on the scale (so fitting).

65Once all packed, the boys made their way to Incheon airport where they would check in for their flights themselves for the first time ever. The boys split into teams to check in two at a time, with members Rap Monster and Jimin being the first ones to check in successfully. Everyone else struggled, but soon, after taking it one step at a time, finished and wondered to themselves why they were struggling so much. LOL. Now, we’d like to mention this. We truly loved how intimate and ‘day in the life’ this part was. We got to see them in their dorm, packing as if we were there. They showed us the many things they packed, including cameras that almost all the members took a long with them. We also got to see them try to do things on their own for the first time, through a struggle and ultimate win. It was as if we were following them closely witnessing every single moment first-hand and feeling that same thrill the members most likely have.


During commentary, the members explained that it was their first time ever checking in by themselves without the help of BigHit staff so it was all foreign to them. All the members were expecting Suga, who is the oldest member, to be the one to figure it all out, but he was just as confused! In the end, they managed to do it and noticed that Suga was actually one of the most sensible members. He had packed a lot of useful things including first aid kit and external batteries/powerbanks!


The second part of the episode began with them arriving at Bergen, Norway. This, was also our favorite part. The boys figure out how to get to their destinations by themselves and even ask local workers for some help. Leader and rapper Rap Monster was the one to speak English to the locals which deemed a great help. They took a bus and headed off to their destination where a lot of chaos began. Because he was so distracted by the beautiful scenery and the actual feel of being in Norway, member Jimin left his luggage in the bus. This part had us cracking up because it reminded us also of KPD in Orlando because there was a bag missing throughout our whole trip (LOL). It was a funny moment that even the members were laughing about. Luckily, Jin thought fast and had them call up the consulate which helped locate the bus and eventually retrieved Jimin’s precious luggage with his camera and underwear. Such an intimate moment. So much love for this group.

1323When the boys arrived at their hostel, they were given a total of 5000 Krone to survive on for three days in Bergen. Some members stayed in the dorm to freshen up, while others went out to buy groceries. At the market, they bought a lot of instant food (ramen for daaaaaaaays), and a cheesecake to celebrate Jungkooks coming of age day! Once home, the boys freshen up and decide who was going to sleep in what room with who with a game of rock,paper, scissors! To Jin’s utter dismay, he ended up having to share a room with Rap Monster. He screams and yells “NOOO” while everyone laughs. They were all so cute. After their little room deciphering fiasco, the boys are shown cooking away some ramen and sausages and let me tell you, when we say that these boys made us hungry at 8am, they made us HUNGRY. We literally wanted to jump into the screen and attack that ramen but it’s okay, we controlled our hunger.


Now, when you’re in a foreign country and you wanna do laundry (really Jungkook), and the washing machine is in a foreign language, what do you do? Well, what Jungkook did! Search up to translate the words on the washing machine, find nothing, give up, and wing it! By luck, he managed to get the washing machine to start working, but did he do it right? We won’t know until episode 2~!


The episode ends with them having dinner and celebrating Jungkook’s coming of age. This part was truly special because the celebrated an important day in Jungkook’s life as a group. We truly love how wonderful the group’s relationship is and how well it was shown to us in this one episode. The boys at the end gave their commentary, made fun of Jimin for losing his bag, and really shared their thoughts on the first episode. Member J-Hope tells us to make sure to tune in next week for the next episode because it was going to be worth the wait. Will we find out if Jungkook did the laundry right? Will Jin live through sharing a room with Rap Monster? We will see next episode next week on VLIVE+~ Make sure to tune in and watch the episode too because it’s surely not something you do not want to miss!!!


TL;DR Review: If you really love BTS, and you freaking love seeing them in their natural states acting a fool, with tons of unexpected moments, this episode is surely something you’d definitely want to watch! It had us laughing, excited, and reminded us of a special trip our KPD fam took last year. We 100% recommend buying the series because it’s definitely gonna be worth watching!
