    October 23, 2013 @ 2:08 pm

    Last year I wrote a Way Back Wednesday featuring some of the great old school songs that were popular during the Fall season. There was no way that list could cover all of the great music so I thought I'd extend that theme into this year with a Part 2.

    This past Saturday, CNBLUE were guests on the Korean variety show 'Quiz That Changes the World' and one of the topics was how each member had acted in a K-drama this past year, all with success. It seems these days that most of our favorite idol singers also moonlight as actors between albums (or maybe it's the other way around) but the singer turned actor isn't a new phenomenon in K-pop.

I know I will certainly give my young nieces and nephews an extr
