June Wrap Up | What I Watched, Did and Listened to

I didn’t read anything during June. That’s right! No books for me. That’s also why I didn’t include “what I read” in the title of this post. I just haven’t been in a reading mood (although it might be coming back while writing this). But I still wanted to let you know what happened in my life in the past month. So let’s get into the other stuff! 

what i watched 80c8b0

I did it. I finished watching season 2 of Sense8 days before the series finale came out. And then I watched the finale, and became incredibly emotional. This is the best show ever and it shouldn’t have been cancelled. I’m kicking myself for not watching it sooner. My favorite character? So hard to choose… I do love Wolfgang. And Sun. Honestly, if you haven’t watched this show, please do. It’s so good.

I also watched a few episodes of the new Korean remake of Suits. I didn’t really know what to expect of this remake, and how they would adapt the American show to Korean culture. To be honest, I started watching this because of Park Hyung-sik… I’ve only seen a few episodes but I’m enjoying it so far! I keep trying to compare new characters that pop up through the episodes with their American counterparts.

what i listened to 80c8b0

BLACKPINK – DDU-DU DDU-DU

I can’t tell you how happy I was to see Blackpink come back with another song! They look like badass queens in this MV, and I will support them forever.

DAY6 – Shoot Me

DAY6 COMEBACK TIME! DAY6 has become one of my absolute favorite groups, which is really saying something. I think they’re top 3 for me. This song is quite different than all their previous works but it’s so so so good.

Monsta X – Tropical Night

Monsta X might be another top 3 group for me. Care to find out the third one? I’ve been obsessed with Monsta X this month but more on that later. I don’t know why this song specifically has been stuck in my head for ages but that’s just the way it is. It was a song I never really used to pay attention too, and now it’s always stuck in my head. I just enjoy the chill vibe and playfulness it has.

Monsta X – Destroyer

I don’t think there’s a MV for this song so I’ve included a lyric video. Another Monsta X song that has been stuck in my head for weeks.

in real life 80c8b0

So what happened in real life?

In the beginning of the month I visited my grandparents at the seaside. I’m not usually a fan of the Belgian seaside, to be honest. But my grandparents usually spend about 2 months a year there so I went for a visit with my mom. As always, ate a lot of great food with some wonderful company.

Probably the most exciting thing to happen this month was a concert. I went to Amsterdam to see Monsta X in concert. I was so excited to see one of my favorite groups live. The waiting in line was a nightmare (seriously) but it was so worth it. The concert was absolutely amazing and they blew my expectations out of the water.

Took this picture right before the concert started. During the concert I was way too busy having fun, shouting along with the songs and cheering them on. The crowd was so pumped and full of energy and the guys were incredible. The songs were perfect, the choreography amazing and their special stages… wow. I was not ready for Hyungwon’s and I.M’s dance stage to Charlie Puth’s How Long.

Obviously, June marked the start of the football craze in Belgium. Football is one of the biggest sports here, so the world championship is inescapable. I’m really enjoying watching the games, even though some of them are not good for my nerves and heard (looking at you, Belgium vs. Japan).


That was it, really. That was my month of June! How was yours?

      1. I think it’s because I’m just always hesitant when starting a new show especially when it’s sci-fi or fantasy. I’ve actually recently watched the first episode of it and I liked it so I’m definitely planning on continuing!

    1. It’s about these people who can suddenly share their minds if they want to. They can communicate with each other mentally, kind of like they appear next to the other person? But they don’t know each other and all live in other countries. Suddenly, they are “reborn” with that ability. 😀

  1. Ah I’m a little jealous you got to see Monsta X live haha 🙂 But I’m so happy that it was such a great show and you enjoyed it!
    As for that third band in your top 3, I can think of a few possibilities, but I’m going to guess… NCT?? 🙂
    I just discovered Day 6 with Shoot Me and they are great indeed! And BlackPink is just so amazing too.
    I haven’t seen Sense8, but I’ve heard so many great things, so I kind of want to watch it, but I also know it’s cancelled so it’ll be sad to see it end too soon… Suits is on my to-watch list too. I honestly haven’t seen the US version, but this remake has Park Hyung-Sik and that’s enough for me 🙂

  2. While I did watch Sense8 pretty much from the very beginning, I so, so, so have to agree that it shouldn’t have been cancelled. I know that Lana wrote a Season 3, even after the finale was planned, so I will always have that stupid hope that we might get to see more of that show. And it’s not just that the show is amazing, but the cast is too!?!?! I met a couple of the guys last summer and they were the most kind, patient, funny and sweet people. I will forever cherish them and their work.

    1. You met them? That’s so amazing! YES, I love the cast too. Latinx characters played by Latinx actors, a trans woman portrayed by a trans woman. A Korean character portrayed by a Korean actress, an Indian character portrayed by an Indian actress, and a German character portrayed by a German actor. This is how every show and movie should be???

      1. EXACTLY! I wish more people would understand how powerful and effective it is to actually use the people who have had that experience as the cast members. That is a big part of why the show worked so well.
        And YEEES! I met Will, Wolfgang, Capheus and Hernando as well as Lana Wachowski. I took like a million pictures with them and they went up on a stage and sang What’s Up and EVERYONE sang along. It was a beautiful moment that just made you feel connected to the people around you. I am actually in the credits of the finale for like 2 seconds haha

          1. I DID! He was really nice. I met him once after having missed a meet and greet that was organised. He still took pics with me, but it was super late and they all got blurry. I saw him again two days later at a PRIDE parade and I think he remembered me. When he went on stage thanking the German speaking people for the support, he definitely looked my way, at least that’s what I am telling myself. I have this one picture where they were doing press photos and the entire cast looks in the direction of the photographer, except for him, he looked right at me and my camera. I was like “HE NOTICES ME!!” but obviously it could have all been in my head. Anyway, he’s really nice 😀
