In the meanwhile, a woman in her 40"s died in a fitness club while exercising and each team went on to cover the accident exclusively for their own company.

On the Eve of Winter with a Cup of K-pop

On the Eve of Winter with a Cup of K-pop Written by Irteqa On November 27, 2014

What comes to mind when one muses over winter? To me, all the way in my niche of the world, winter is vintage. It is the glow of leafless trees in the evening, cinnamon being stirred into mugs of steam, bronze in the sky and wreaths for front doors, sharp corners in the wake of toboggans, and the general feeling of earth burning beneath the frost. When K-pop comes into the picture, these feelings of sentimentalism become even stronger and drive the truth a little further, which is extreme and unbearable cold.

I take my cup of K-pop a little stronger in the winter than in spring or summer. The only reason for this is that while I freeze away without anything to keep me occupied in my bedroom, K-pop (with a dash of K-drama) chases the winter (therefore lethargy) away
