It's been a while since the last time I updated this journal. Real update, I mean. The second to the last semester of my university life has ended, and I'm currently back to the game - fan girl mode on, but not quite the same.
For the past two years, I've been on hiatus. University works eat most of my time, and I admit, I lost interest in following updates in my fandoms, especially when I became more engaged with socializing with my friends here in my dormitory. I went back to listening to Western music alone - and lost track of anything related to my Asian fandoms. I deleted my old tumblr, and I don't update this journal anymore. I had to sell my fandom things to save up for other stuff (which in the end I wasn't able to buy -- long story).
To sum it up, I almost know nothing about my fandoms anymore. Except for the updates I can still see on Facebook or Twitter.
By the way, I'm about to graduate soon! One more semester to go and I'm dooooone! (To be honest, I don't know if I should be happy or scared)
So last week, I saw this certain clip of BL scene compilation from a web series. I was curious so I had to look it up. I found out its title is "Matching! Boys Archery" - which is a Korean Web Series with 8 episodes (ave. 15mins per ep). The next thing I knew, I already finished all episodes and with that, my fujoshi feels is back on track.
I was able to find a list of BL dramas/movies - and one show that caught my attention was "Addicted/Heroin". It's a reaaaaally good show, but sadly, the next season was cancelled due to China's policy. (heartbreaking...) Honestly, after watching this, I thought I'd never be as hooked to any other drama as I did to this show. BUT I WAS WRONG.
NEW FOUND FAN GIRL LIFE
As I browse through the titles of the BL list that I found, another show caught my attention - but of course, I was hesitant because I might get disappointed. (Yeah - I'm too picky). But since I have nothing to watch anymore, I decided to give it a try. Its a Thai Series called "Make It Right".
Thursday night: I started to watch the first episode.
Friday, 6:00am: Wide awake, just finished the series. Scrolling through the show's soompi thread. Looked for the actors' Instagram accounts. Saved photos. Slept happily.
I won't comment on the show here yet, since I'm about to make a pimp post for those who might get lost and would need a guide (as much as I needed it the first time I saw the show).
In other words, I WAS HOOKED. And I'm done for.
(That same day) Friday, 10:30am: Browsed for Facebook groups related to MIR.
12:00pm: Found Make It Right Philippines (relevant for me ;_;)
And then there was the poster... They will have a fan meeting here in Manila on March!
Throughout the rest of the day, I was contemplating on how I could get the money to buy a ticket for myself. I COULD NOT MISS THIS.
9:00pm: I talked to my friend in Canada (he's asleep).
Saturday, 6:30am: He responded. He agreed to lend me the money. And he said half of the payment is on him, as a gift for me. I nearly died.
Do I even deserve having this kind of friend.
SO, in conclusion.
I found a new fandom I'd like to put my energy on. I'm trying to learn Thai language (anyone interested in helping me?). I also decided to save up money to visit Thailand (for 2 weeks-one month, depends) after graduation. I really want to stay longer this time, in the fandom, I mean.
Right now, I'm watching MIR (still waiting for next year's movie and new season), SOTUS the Series, MiraigarT1 (no subs yet whyyy), and War of High School the Series. Gradually, I'll try to watch more Thai dramas. But for now, I'm focused with my MIR babies.
BUT that doesn't mean I don't love my Korean or Japanese fandoms anymore. It's just that I decided I'll invest more time learning about Thailand from now on. (Which is also helpful for my undergrad degree lol)
So... that's it. I will be making a pimp post regarding MIR. If ever you stumble upon this show, I hope the pimp post can help and guide you.
