I’m a writer in my late 20s, trying to figure out love, life, and how to get the most out of my MA in Literature. I love research and, no joke, analyzing the heck out of every single piece of media I consume – so expect a lot of that here.
I’ve got an an opinion on basically everything. If you like strong opinions, candid talk about mental/physical health and trauma, and the occasional ode to fictional characters, then you’ll probably love me.
And if you don’t… oh well!
This blog focuses on analysis of nerdy media, book reviews, and lots of commentary about race in fandom and the source media that spawns our favorite fandoms.

Black American privilege
looks like being told to make amends for our hypervisibility
by people who refuse to fucking
I don’t apologize unless I mean it. More people should be like that. Especially when it comes to minor to major antiblackness in media like the kind we constantly do see from Korean pop and hip-hop artists. If you don’t … Continue reading
No one who frames fans of color talking about racism in fandom as bullies, ideological purists, haters, cops, antis, etc actually cares about people of color (outside of their sometimes treasured tokens). Continue reading
Like if you’re going to have a platform, especially like DKDKTV does you should definitely be expected educate yourself and those guys really haven’t across the years. It’s been very like this – they have yet to do a video on blackness specifically and like anti blackness that hasn’t been kind of like shit. Continue reading
How does fandom’s empathy gap come into play when the trauma of POC is on the table? Why does the empathy that fans extend to white characters, fans, and performers, hit a hard wall at POC – especially when it comes to Black characters, fans, and performers in my direct experience? Continue reading
They’ve bought the books. they own White Fragility. They share their few friends of colors’ GoFundMe ease and cashapps. They really do care about racism in the abstract.
And of course, they definitely don’t want Black people being killed because we’re Black, but they also don’t really care about us as people. Continue reading
I didn’t expect that I’d be writing about the Black Lives Matter movement in the context of Korean pop and hip hop music – or their fandoms. But that’s what this post is actually about – barring some all too … Continue reading
It is very difficult to create meaningful, hopeful content at a time like this when we are watching Black people around the country protest our continuing oppression and the fact that our murders can now be recorded… and ignored because … Continue reading
There’s an error in this video that I did actually catch before it posted… I wanted to open with that because it’s honestly hilarious. I copied the original introduction for this video – which I had originally drafted and recorded … Continue reading
Across Korean pop/hip-hop twitter, anyone who calls out or even mentions the antiblackness that is a constant from the artists, the industry they’re part of, and the fandom spaces we’re in on and offline… gets accused of doing it for … Continue reading
Have you checked out the rest of the works in this year-long project yet? The first time I think I saw a “But Namjoon” in the wild was almost a year ago when Stray Kids’ Bang Chan came under fire … Continue reading
Episode Notes: Did you catch the previous episode yet? That was an hour long review of BTS’ Map of the Soul: 7! And, unlike this episode, it has a transcript! There’s a chance that I mispronounce Sik-K’s name when I … Continue reading
At the end of the day, I want Black characters to be respected in fandom and in their (canon OR fanon) ships and they aren’t. Continue reading
Quick Coverage: All Eyez On YunB Proving Why East Asian Appreciation and Appropriation of Blackness Are Two Sides of the Same Antiblack Coin
I know that not a single one of y’all wanted to know that there’s going to be a South Korean musical version of Tupac’s life called All Eyez on Me performed by a cast that, as far I can tell, … Continue reading
