If someone were to ask me what made my year personally, I’d have to say Ningin. 2009 had it’s share of highs and lows in the world of Asian pop culture and entertainment. Asian artists crossed over, made Hollywood debuts, fought illness and court battles. The best part of 2009 was that we were all present together as a community to experience it all! In summary, this is what happened in 2009 for us. More »
As 2009 comes to an end, it is prime time to reflect on a year of heartbreak, love, betrayal, excess, unrequited love and of course “drama.” Thankfully I’m not talking about my own personal life but two of my favorite dramas of the year: Boys Before Flowers and Shining Inheritance. From these, two Korean drama actors emerged as heartthrobs (the bad boys turned good kind): Lee Min Ho (Gu Jun Pyo of BBF) and Lee Seung Gi (Sun Woo Hwan of Shining Inheritance). But who reigns supreme as the Korean Drama King of 2009? More »
From Girlybubble: One can only characterize the cute, delicious foods of 2009 with one saying, and one saying alone: “Cute enough to not eat.” Given all the cute foods that existed this year, how could you eat?

When it comes to making strides, this decade was all about Asian pop acts making them in the world of Asian pop music. Aside from sheer talent and devoted fan bases, the biggest driving force and probably the reason why you know about these Asian pop stars is because of well, the Internet. While I didn’t make it on my own list of Top Asian Pop Acts of the Decade, I’m sure you’ll agree wholeheartedly with my choices. And maybe we’ll see me around for the next decade. (Or not.) More »

There were many awesome games that were released this past decade and it was hard for me to choose which ones to put on this list. But I limited myself to games that came from Asia (more specifically Japan) and here is the list that I have come up with. Keep in mind that I have limited access to game consoles, excluding my Playstation 2. So most of the games on this list are from the PS2. More »
Now that the series has ended, I can safely say this was easily the best anime from fall 2009. Darker Than Black had promise but the ending was complete crap. The only other 2 shows I liked, Nyan Koi and Kimi ni Todoke were good but I love Trapeze so much more. Every episode had strong points and none of them were a waste. Some were just better than others but even the weaker episodes were worth watching. The last episode also did a great job of connecting the series together and it’s pretty satisfying now that I finished it. I know I’m going to wish for more later though. I’ll especially miss Irabu’s creepy laughter.
2009 was definitely a year of ups and downs, unfortunately more downs than up. In Japan they were pretty stable, nothing was fantastically up or horribly down. Korea had the worst year in music so far, not just in 2009, but of all time, in which I feel had rivaled America for dramatic turmoil. More »
