Lets go back…. 2009 Ukiss- Back 2 Old School

These days the “90s” concept seems to be really big, especially in K-pop and J-pop. the most prominent examples being SHINee 1 of 1 , Exo -Love Me Right Japanese version (especially for the most commonly used 90s motifs). But what if I told you another kpop group tried this theme a decade ago? What in 2009? Really? Yes!

Ukiss’s second mini album Back 2 old School came onto the scene 2009 with their take on the 90s and it was very interesting to say the least.

SHINee cake struggle

I had it planned that I would make a cake for SHINee’s 10th anniversary yep, all planned out down to the details but like they say about well laid plans….

When May came around I didn’t think I would be able to make the cake and kinda gave up on the idea then I said no! just make the cake it will be fun and a nice way to celebrate the occasion. Everything seems great I got the colors needed to make the roses as well as the icing tips.

But the day of I realized I don’t have the right sized icing bags for these special tips (the ones I have are too big. No problem I’ll just improvise I cut out one end tip of a Ziploc bag and used it instead….:(


After a week of mostly chilly, rainy weather the day I make my cake it’s blazing hot and melting the frosting as I make it and as I frosted the cake( I kept putting it in the fridge so it would “set” but you’ll see the frosting is still uneven and melty.

The tip I had was too big and hard to manipulate with the odd angled Ziploc bag so the 10th didn’t come out as well as I hoped. HOWEVER I am very pleased with how the roses or ranunculus came out and the color is quite a match for pearl aqua blue. ūüôā



I have plans to make a cake next month hopefully it will turn out better.



Update: Opinion post. I change my opinion

Yesterday I was disappointed with the teaser image of SHINee’s¬† for their new album¬† The Story of Light. I decided to write here¬† how I felt that the concept wasn’t well executed. Then in the last paragraph of my opinion post I told myself “wait this probably will not truly be how the concept will be handled and you would have worried for no reason. That is correct.

While I’m still not completely sold on the concept of light using primary colors and not roygbiv (the rainbow), the next round of teaser images have placated my fears.

While actual light is composed of the colors of the rainbow. In theater using color gels one can make white light by combining the three primary colors of red yellow and blue. In painting, combing these three colors will give you black.¬† So I was like why didn’t they use spotlights in their images for this concept then?!

The next day:


ok then……

The I felt use of the primary colors and basic shapes make it look juvenile

Not so much here…(I can now see some of the retro aspect , this reminds me of a movie poster)

or here…


not childish at all


So there you have it! I feel a little better about SHINee’s 10th Anniversary concept (for now).


SHINee Memory #2

While cleaning my room I came upon my vast collection of pins. Amongst the many pins some with emblazoned clever slogans, anime & video characters, band logos, pictures, etc…¬† when I came upon a pin I received as a prize way back in 2009….you guessed it a SHINee pin. I’m surprised I still had it after all these years.


While at a anime convention back in ’09 I decided to go a K-pop panel to meet some k-pop fans, watch kpop videos and have some non anime fun.¬† I ended up being one of the winners of the contest and was able to select a prize! Unfortunately after the panel ended the other winners rushed the prize table claiming the “best items” leaving a lonely pin behind. The young woman behind the table smiled and sweetly said “Well you can have a SHINee pin!” I gladly accepted the pin even though SHINee was not well known as were only about a year old (because as you read in my previous SHINee memory I liked them).

As you see I still have that pin! Just to think no one wanted this pin 9 years ago and look how far they have come and well known they are now after 10 years! I’m glad to have a piece of memorabilia before they were famous.

If I were to go to the table now I can guarantee a SHINee  pin would not be left behind!
