C.N. Blue Craze

January 26, 2010

Have you heard I’m a Loner yet? A fresh start into the K-Pop scene C.N. Blue debuted in Japan a while back, and they’ve only just made their debut in Korea a few weeks ago.

They’re newest mini-album Bluetory is a great album, and my favorite part is that it’s different from all of the auto tune songs that seem to be floating out there recently. Anwaysss take a look at their hit single (#1 on ALL of Korea’s music charts)

I got back from my trip to China a few weeks ago, to go see my lovely Joongie perform live at Beijing Workers Stadium, and let me tell you one thing. IT WAS FRICKIN AMAZING. Nothing less of what i’d expect of TVXQ!

Before the concert started everyone was super hyped up and fully loaded with goods bought from the legion of venders outside selling some crafty DBSK goods. And the best thing was, you could get about 20 posters for only 100 rmb!! And boy oh boy did i buy a LOT of stuff from the outside. Some of the cutest stuff included Hero’s ah-dorable Keroppi fan and these really cool TVXQ umbrellas :).

One of the funniest things I remember was “YunJae” getting onto stage with their balloon costumes on and posing for pictures for fans. Wow. That is dedication or some very good bribing to get two grown men . . . or women to dress up in cute furry animal costumes for the whole 40,000 viewers to see. XD

Something that I found really cool was that some fan sites or blogs like yours truly would set up these light signs that were so big are boys could even see them on stage.

Song Suggestions

June 18, 2009

Hello all of you readers out there! I’m going on a long flight soon and need to add some awesome songs 2 my ipod. List any suggestions!!

If you’re stuck because of the millions of possibilities to choose from, let me give u a hand 🙂

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE ASIAN MUSIC.

I typically tend 2 stay in the chinese, japanese, and korean music department, but I’m open to new genres!

DBSK = LOVE. which means that i have all of their songs on my ipod already . . .  so DBSK is covered.

commenting is fun, huh?

Due to a staggering amount of views and popularity of the sizzling hot Boys Over Flowers drama. It has been confirmed that a second season will start again next February. But then again, you could’ve guessed that right?

Boy oh boy, it must be hard to play the “enemy” on a k-drama cause they REALLY make you want to bitch slap them in the face. For example, YU MI!! Gosh, she REALLY made me want to punch her in the face when she was at Jun Pyo’s house and all throughout the hospital scenes!! urggggg!! Btw that lunch box Jan Di made for Jun Pyo was TOOO cute

Ga Eul x Yi Jung

I was really hoping for more chemistry and maybe even a kiss ^^. But I’m still satisfied with Yi Jung telling Ga Eul that she’d be the first person he’d look for when he got back from SWEDEN :'(. I think they make a much more interesting couple XP

Ji Hoo . . . my love!! I feel so bad for him!! To have been repeatedly REJECTED by Jan Di over and over and over again and still come to rescue her when her heart’s hurting. That’s LOVE right there, PURE TRUE LOVE! I love my white knight!

The Party:

Hmm it was pretty entertaining at first, and of course I recognized the lovely theme to BOF when they were playing the harp 🙂 and Jandi’s dress was SOO CUTE. THAT BITCH YU MI!! “I’m sorry Unnie, but Yu Mi loves Jun Pyo” WELL TOO BAD!! you can’t have him! he belongs to jan di!! i would’ve totally pushed her into the pool during that scene. But when she threw the necklace into the water it broke my heart, at least she made that jumping into the pool moment as dramatic as humanly possible ^^. How much suspense do the directors WANT to build up?? For god sakes, going through that whole Ji Hoo glaring at Jun Pyo to do something and looking angered when he saved her schpeel took practically 5 minutes!! 5 minutes in which a normal human would’ve drowned when staying at the bottom of the pool!! MY POOR JI HOO!!

The dances at the graduation were cute. “My destined partner, Ji Hoo sunbae, thank you.” damn i really wish they’d work out! But boy do I wish i had a boyfriend like Jun Pyo who would light up NAMSAM TOWER for me!!

It was adorable how Jan Di wouldn’t move when Jun Pyo told her he wanted to show her the little message he left her  ^^. guess she can’t get married now XP

But at least they made it like a REAL ending to the drama. made it feel so complete 🙂

WOW. Boys over Flowers . . . let’s all take a moment to just remember what a great drama this was. Before starting the korean version, I had always had the thought that no drama could ever beat the japanese version of Hana Yori Dango. But I have to admit, Boys Over Flowers has given my favorite drama (HYD) some pretty serious competition.

The soundtrack was AMAZING!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ How could we not love Because I’m Stupid – SS501 or Lucky – Ashily or even Starlight Tears!! Don’t forget Almost Paradise – T-MAX!! I also loved how they incorporated so much of their soundtrack and the simple melodies into so many scenes!!

The love triangle!! At least they kept it up until the very end unlike HYD where they sort of dropped it and focused solely on Makino and Domyouji toward the second season. JI HOO!! ❤

25 great episodes that made me an obsessive fangirl all the way to the end.

WTF HELL NO! Jae Kyang stopped the wedding HERSELF??? damn. i thought BOF was gonna have a completely different ending from HYD. but I guess the JunPyo JanDi coupling is just too perfect to ignore. I didn’t get very far, so I’m just going to talk about the first half of the episode. 😥 poor Ji Hoo, he tried so hard to get JanDi to love him too. The sad thing is though, JanDi loved him first, and they could’ve been together if he didn’t chase the model to FRANCE!! But I must say, he looked goooooooood in that white riding jacket and Rui by his side. Very princely. But when going through the flashbacks, I’m REALLY happy they decided to update his sense of style and give him a much needed haircut. aww so cute!!

Yi Jung and Ga Eul

The car scene was super cute. and i thought it was adorable how Ga Eul was crying because she thought it was so sweet of JaeKyang to be considerate of JunPyo’s feelings rather than her own. But when Yi Jung started talking about his confrontation with the girl from before when she was supposedly going to confess to him, it looked mighty familiar eh? Almost familiar enought o be compared to Ga Eul’s “confession(s)” to Yi Jung.  GA EUL ❤ YI JUNG FIGHTING!!

The Necklace::

Aww this was such a sad and sweet thing. Hmm now that I think about it, Jae Kyang really was a nice person. After all, she chose to make both Jan Di and Jun Pyo happy instead of herself. But I felt so bad when she handed the necklace to ji Hoo and told him that she wished JJ meant JiHoo and JanDi. For a moment there, i wished that was true too.

 

*sigh* i guess there really isn’t that much hope for Jan Di and Ji Hoo anymore. too bad.

But on top of that, YI JUNG x GA EUL!!

Boys Over Flowers So Far

March 15, 2009

We all know that the korean rendition of the oh-so popular Hana Yori Dango has proven to be a giant success and has been the source of screaming fangirls for weeks at hand. But let’s take a breather and look at just how much this show has grown. I’ll have to admit that the characters and the story plot’s turn are not what i expected them to be, but they’ve all turned out to be pretty good nonetheless.  Let’s go character by character.

Geum Jan Di:

I’ll admit, i thought she was kind of annoying in the beginning. But after a while, Tough Weed JanDi started to grow on me. My favorite part of her chracter change from HYD to BOF was the fact that they made her into a swimmer. I think it played a good role throughout the story plot, through JunPyo learning to swim for her to herhurting her shoulder and not being able to swim. Although her decision to become a doctor furthered her ties to JiHoo with his grandfather, i think that she should’ve kept the choice of the lawyer, because that would have brought back JiHoo’s old flame. Still, the love triangle with JihooxJanDixJunPyo has turned out to be one of the most interesting yet.

JunPyo:

Ahh how can we not love our seld-centered egoist. lol. Looking at a view point, I think that JunPyo in BOF is a more developed character than Domyouji. He just seems must more macho and masculine, being that kind of guy you want to be embraced by. But his funny and sometimes witty attitude is what still makes the big guy so loveable.

JiHoo:

Can I even begin to put into words JUST HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS GUY??! Back in HYD i thought they rui had to be the most naggy annoying guy in the entire series. And that’s what really made me want to fight for DomyoujixMakino. But in BOF, my god am i conflicted. I had absolutely no idea who I would choose! Should I pick the alltime favorite and probably JandixJunPyo or go for the couple that seems so perfect for each other JanDixJiHoo. So many choices with so many consequencs >.< I think they made a good choice in developing his character to make a REAL love triangle. And give viewers the little surprise that this relationship between JiHoo and JanDi could ACTUALLY EXIST! I think his family story is so sad though 😦

WooBin:

Come on. Seriously. How can you not love are boi with his fobby english that makes us love him so. Yo Yo Yo my home boy let’s go. I DIED LAUGHING. Cuz he’s just SO FUNNY!!! ❤ I think they should have added more to his character development though, besides the whole. I’m so embarassed to be the son of a gang boss.

YiJung:

CUTE CUTE CUTE CUTE CUTE CUTE CUTE with an edge. Ahhh my lovely potter with a broken hand and a tortured soul. I LOVE YOU! I think that if I were to spend the entire day here blogging about everything there could possibly be to blog about YiJunh, I wouldn’t even scratch the surface. So for now, I’m just gonna say one thing. YI JUNG LOVES GA EUL!!!! (or at least i hope so)

First of all O.M.F.G. AMAZING EPISODE

Let’s start off with Yi Jung’s story. I never knew that his dad was such a B*!! Now it makes more sense how earlier in the series Yi Jung told that lady that she was his father’s 3rd girlfriend that month. But his father telling him that the only reason he became the head of the family was because he was just like him broke my heart. RISE ABOVE THE INFLUENCE YI JUNG!! But i did kinda like the part how his father reminded him that true love only comes once in a lifetime. Maybe that one person for Yi Jung is Ga Eul ^^. I think Eunjae is really pretty too though, and I think that since they have history they’d be a really cute couple. But still . .  .  YI JUNG x GA EUL!! I think the korean version’s done a really good job with making a different version of BOF. I must admit, that at first I was a bit skeptical, but this is really turning out to be an amazing adaption.

JaeKyang:

I like her a lot better than Shizuka  . . . i forget her name -.- in the japanese version. I think her personality is a lot more “appealing.” Like she doesn’t get on my nerves as easily as Shizuka does. -.- but i still loved HYD XD. I think it was HILARIOUS how she ate the whole bowl of ramen, and the whole time Jun Pyo, Ji Hoo, and Jan Di are looking at her like O.M.F.G. HOW IS SHE DOING THAT?!?! But it was really sweet how she won the 50 ramen tickets for Jan Di :). But i think it was a bit extreme at the end how she hugged him @ the jacuzzi. But hey, that’s just me.

oh and the rings!! sooo cute. but i wish it her JunPyo and JanDi rings. hmm i never knew it sad J<3J on the back of Jan Di’s necklace . . .

Jun Pyo:

I feel really bad for Jun Pyo, even though I feel like I should hate him for being so mean to Jan Di a while back. The guy’s under a lot of pressure people, his dad died, his mom’s a bitch, and he’s engaged to a woman other than the girl he loves. But still, he managed to look AMAZING in this episode. Let me just start off saying that DAMN LEE MINHO HAS AN AMAZING BODY!! *look @ the pool scene for a reference* It was a really funny scene when he was learning to swim, ROFLMFAO. But it was cute how he said “I’d rather drown than watch another guy save you.”

Ji Hoo:

Awwww the part with him and his grandfather was sooo cute, but still sooo sad at the same time 😦 I think it’s this kind of thing in dramas that keep everyone so engrossed. The misunderstandings that lead to a whole web of a mess. ANND!! He called Jan Di an otter >.< so cute. I LOVE HIS NEW HAIR. The beginning with Ji Hoo helping her clean the windows was so sweet. And my god. When she passed out, I nearly fell out of my chair because of all the suspense. He’s so nice to her, and yet she still loves Jun Pyo. >.< so hard for him.

Jan Di:

It must be hard for her, watching JunPyo and HaeKyang from afar and realizing that it can’t happen to her. BUT THAT’s THE WHOLE POINT JAN DI!! Rise above the rest!!

It’s really hard for me to decide who to choose 😦 JanDi x JunPyo or JanDi x JiHoo

By far probably one of the most confusing plots that I love so much.

😥 So sad, BOF’s almost over. 17 episodes down. 7 episodes to go.
