That’s right!  Today’s the day we become a K and J Entertainment Blog.  Out reasons for becoming a two country blog were said in the last Blog Update.  But if you don’t want to read it here’s the basic summary:

From the 15th of March Aipod1 will no longer be just a Japanese Entertainment Blog but a Japanese and Korean Entertainment Blog.  This decision was made, as eroprincess has become quite the expert in Korean Music and Dramas.  This will also mean the blog maybe be more active.  So please stay with us over the next month as we try to find our bearings in K and J Entertainment.

We hope this makes the blog more interesting and updated more frequently. Please support us through the change.

Unfortunately we are having troubles running the blog along side our studies so if there are a few days with out posting don’t worry we’ll try to post as soon as possible.

That’s all for now, Let’s try to update more this month~☆
