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!
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.
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.
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?
