Hello there~ *waves*
My name is Mary and I’m the author of K-Popcorn! Here you can find almost everything you need from reviews and updates on different Korean dramas and variety shows to posts on the latest news in K-Pop to comments about Korean hip-hop music and shows. Drawing inspiration from other popular blogs like Dramabeans and A Koala’s Playground, I decided to create a blog of my own where I can post my own thoughts and feelings about whatever it is that I’m watching and eventually ended up with this blog – K-Popcorn (aka Marymekpop).
It’s been approximately about a decade (maybe more than a decade I’m not too sure) since I’ve been following the K-Entertainment world. The very first Korean artists and groups I came across that paved my road into K-Pop were Shinhwa, Rain/Bi, DBSK, BoA, Chae Yeon, Lee Hyori, and Super Junior. And after switching from group to group over the many years, I have come to the conclusion that my ultimate bias groups in all of K-pop are Highlight (formerly known as BEAST) and BTS. Meanwhile, my very first Korean dramas and movies were Stairway to Heaven, The Classic, Full House, and the memorable My Lovely Samsoon.
Some of you guys might be curious as to why I decided to name this blog ‘K-Popcorn’ out of all names I could of came up with…but in the first place, I’m not a creative person so I didn’t really know what to name my blog and second, I feel like the term ‘popcorn’ goes well with K-Pop and Korean dramas. I remember seeing this word being used around a lot by people for scandals and rumors of celebrities so many would comment by saying that they’ll just grab some popcorn and lay back so I decided to use the term ‘popcorn’ and then add K-Pop (since K-Pop ends with ‘Pop’) to connect the best of both worlds (I apologize if this is confusing). Basically, you can chill and relax while browsing through my blog full of K-Pop and Korean drama related posts by eating some popcorn. Haha.
