It's not my problem that all the Asian Swag posts have only included Koreans. I don't control the Swag Gods. lol I atleast use the word "Asian" to be fair though. I also use the word "Asian" because some people associate the word "Swag" with just one culture, style, and/or genre of music.
Swag has been redefined in my opinion, especially with this amazing solo album teaser film by EXO's Kai. I really had no expectations awaiting his 1st solo album. I just knew to expect a mesmerizing dancing talent like Shinee's Taemin! They are my two favorite solo dancers. Kai's voice is also really nice! I wish all solo acts would do something like this to introduce their solo albums. It's gorgeous!
The Healthy Halloween Dinner Party & Healthy Halloween Musical Chairs posts end here.
Hopefully you've gathered some inspiration to host your own Vampire theme party this year and/or every year!
Now it's time to do a little singing. :)
Although your party doesn't require attendees to have talent, it really does help.
I have a "Talent Only" rule for my relationships soooo keep it to who you're compatible with if you want to have some fun.
Although the Vampire theme has had some Asian influences, we will keep karaoke to more American Hip Hop and R&B. It's the genre many Asian Idols dance to in their dance studios and livestreams. Some are great freestylers by the way! Vampires would have the same swag as well.
Here are some upbeat and positive songs to consider.
You can use it as another "Try Not to Sing" Challenge as well. You're literally "dead" inside if you make it through all of the songs though. lol ;)
The Healthy Halloween Dinner Party post set the invitation, decor, and menu tone. Now some of my favorite Kpop songs and "Halloween" themes will do the rest. These are great for a game of candlelight musical chairs. Play the videos on a large screen for some extra lighting if you want.
It's all fun and games. Play nice and dance a bit. :)
P.S. I still don't like green hair, but Exo's Kai pulled it off well for some reason. hmm I think it comes down to if someone is playing a Monster or Joker character. It looks less like moldy hair then. It has to fit a theme I guess. lol Anyhoo just enjoy the damn music. haha

2020 has been a bizarre year. I don't know if I'm discovering a new Taemin or the same Taemin. When did "Eye Contact Cams" start existing as well? I feel SM's new institute should just have "Taemin 101" classes!
Even as a former hypnotherapist for clients, I'm mesmerized by the way Taemin performs. He could run a legal firm. haha He really does a great job performing from head to toe. Speechless!
I'm impressed with 2020's Taemin. Keep it up with Shinee too! I want a great comeback for them as well! :-)
Here's another one for the "Music" tab. I love Taemin. I love Shinee. I love Taemin's flowing dance moves. I love this choreography! I just love Taemin. I watched this over and over.
He's definitely one of my favorite solo artists. Anyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s doing contemporary or jazz dance would agree. Dance teachers better get on it! This is great inspiration.
With Retrograde season in full blast this Fall ("Astrology" tab), don't get devoured by people, places, or things. Keep some air for yourself so that you can breathe. The song really shows how people can be their own worst enemy at the end of the day. Seeking the tarot will not help that much. Stay above the fray and/or out of the rabbit holes...potholes if it's Mercury in Retrograde.
I just caught A.C.E's dance practice today and got triggered. lol The green haired Goblin look and original music video may of creeped me out a bit, but the raw dance practice to the song brought back memories of former childhood dance practices (on the grass outside of friend's houses as we danced to our girl group songs, in studios with dance teachers listening to their favorite R&B songs despite the jazz routine we had practiced, and of course in front of public audiences). All were good memories of three separate groups that I participated in as the leader.
Despite their great stage performances with their comeback song, this is my favorite performance so far. This is the swag I like! They must of been tired with that choreography. It's good though!
They all get Bias status with this one! I still like to watch Donghun dance though. :)
Fall is a good time to dance a bit to your favorite boy dancers and/or music! Get that sacral chakra moving with your lower body. Orange is a good color to work with if you need some motivation.
MV Update (Oct 2nd): The Director's cut Music Video was much better in my opinion! The energy wasn't as "creepy" to my little sixth senses. It all comes down to energy with me.
You can check out the Director's cut below. Both fit these 5 "Goblins" best.
I'm just going to share music posts on the music tab. I'm not a music critic, but I have been around music for a long time. Playing music to singing in choirs to being in dance groups to doing radio to dating fellow musicians (definitely nobody famous) to networking.
I have so many opinions on music when I hear it. I keep them to myself though. Nobody cares about what you hate in life. lol I love to share great beats and resources with others instead. This is what this post is for.
One thing that I love in music is consistency. It's rare to find a group of singers and/or an album that is consistent from start to finish. The one album that I still like to listen to for the background beats and melodies is below. You can listen to the entire album playlist HERE (recommended). It flows flawlessly well from start to finish. I find the KR language relaxing in music, esp when I don't know what is being said. That's how good the album is. You don't need to know! Every song just works with the language barrier. That's amazing for those looking for great sounds to work with.
Kudos to the producers of that album! It's definitely my favorite Kpop album so far. I really hope the group stays around for a long time. It's ok if it doesn't though. Life happens.
Some Millennials may remember the game "Musical Chairs" growing up. It was another favorite game of mine. It's always a win when you can combine exercise with music.
As I make more time for my creative loves (music and art), I couldn't help but seek out more resources to share with those who are interested in the same. I was listening to a 90s playlist and giggled at how 90% of the songs are just "talk singing" about their day or life.
It really is the easiest way to write a positive and upbeat song to a beat.
