What We’re Watching: BTS Map of the Soul ON:E Virtual Concert
We’ve been looking forward to this all week long! Even though the concert is starting at midnight Pacific Time (way past my bedtime,) it’s exciting to know that it is being streamed live. I forgot what it felt like to become a fan of new music or a new band or artist. In some ways, we may be too old for this. On the other hand, music has always been a universal thing bringing people together and it’s almost better that something like this has no bounds. I’m going to be awfully sleepy tomorrow, but I can’t wait to be watching the concert from the comfort of my own living room.
What We’re Listening To: JUNNY
I first discovered JUNNY’s music by listening to an unreleased track of his on TikTok. At the time, I didn’t know anything about who he was as an artist, but with TikTok, it’s quite easy to go down a rabbit hole. While his sound reminds me of BTS, it’s not exactly in the same genre. There’s a balance of lyrics both in English and Korean, I would also probably categorize him as being more R&B while BTS can do any genre. His last album on Spotify is from 2017, but if you’re looking for something to check out, I would start there and work your way back through his discography and singles.
What We’re Wearing: [Girlfriend Collective Black Topanga Bra] – $38
Running a brief errand this morning, I stopped into a new-ish store in Hayes Valley called Vepublic. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, but that’s often times the most dangerous mindset to have! Having heard about Girlfriend Collective and being more aware of activewear brands, I wanted to give it a try. I didn’t see much harm in trying on the sports bra, but that almost led me to buying a second and a pair of leggings. The fabric is so buttery soft! I also love that this isn’t as cropped as a normal sports bra and also not a full tank. It’s right in between.
What We’re Eating: Gimbap
After a day of errands, I also stopped by the Korean market and since we’re watching BTS tonight, figured we could make a whole day out of this to celebrate. I’ve actually never had Gimbap/Kimbap before so I’m excited to try it for the first time!
