Hello and welcome!

When I first built and started this blog, it was supposed to be about my personal thoughts and experiences being Asian in America, my love for general Asian Pop culture, and other opinions related to both. But then, it never really took off due to real life, and never really touched it since last year. Instead, I ended up making manual journals about them.

Now, trying to revive this, this blog will be about general J-Pop, primarily focused towards boy groups. There will be a few guides here and there for those interested in learning some terminology in J-Pop (boy groups) fandom too. Rather than deleting this and using a different title, I decided to keep the blog name and the subdomain URL too.

I’m basing most of my posts from my 20+ years of being a J-Pop fan, however, the J-Pop industry is way too huge and vast that there’s just way too information to remember everything that it’s better to do thorough research on the industry itself. There’s still a lot of things that I need to learn about J-Pop, and in particular, J-Pop male idols. Generally, female J-Pop idols are a lot more well-known to international fans, so hopefully, this blog would provide a bit of an inside towards Japanese male idols altogether.

About the Blogger

I’m Adrianne, a 40-something Filipino-American web dev, aspiring data scientist, blogger, artist, and overall nerdette. I was born and raised in the Philippines and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, California. I like gaming, art, crafting, music (namely J-Pop), traveling, writing, reading, and mingling with like-minded individuals.

To make it short, I’m a “veteran” J-Pop fan, J-Popper, etc. We’re not the same as anime/manga otaku, just because we’re also fans of another aspect of Japanese pop culture. Maybe wota is a more appropriate term.

That’s the brief gist of me. You can check out my personal blog if you still want to get to know more about me.
