Super Junior 슈퍼주니어 Black Suit MV Teaser

Countdown to Super Junior  슈퍼주니어 comeback: D-5.

I got a message earlier today on LINE reminding me of Super Junior’s comeback. Just a few days more to go.

That message also told me that they’ve just released the first Teaser Video of Black Suit‘s MV.  When that message came, I was out with friends, I couldn’t wait to watch it. Now fast forward to (an agonizing) 12 hours later, I finally get to see it.

Looking at the video, I cannot help but think how mature they’ve grown after their respective military services. It’s often said by several artists in the past that military service brings a change in them. Maybe it’s just probably me, but somehow, there is something more manly in the way they project themselves now.

There must be some story in the MV as each member is assigned a persona (the Security, the Appraiser, the Transporter, the Millionaire, the Client Representative, the Decoy and the host). I’m guessing it has something to do with transporting the all important Black suit somewhere – I mean there’s a decoy (Oh ye Hollywood, you’re making my imagination work!). Just a thought though – I’d wish Yesung’s Transporter had Jason Statham vibe. Yep, I’ve definitely been watching too many action movies!

There will be 2 more teasers released tomorrow and on the 3rd. And on November 6 (Suju’s anniversary) their 8th album will be released.

It’s a pity though that Siwon will not be able to participate during broadcast promotions (SM released a statement yesterday about this). As my bias, I was anticipating him being on music shows. It was sad to only have 7 of them participate in the album, now it makes me sadder that Siwon won’t be performing.  But although he will not be in the broadcasts, we can still catch him in his new drama Revolutionary Love.

It must be hard on the rest of the members. But I know they’re see it through
Now it’s up to us ELFs to show them our undying support!

Super Junior fighting! 슈퍼주니어 화이팅!!!

Perhaps Love – Eric Nam and Cheeze (Lyrics)

Joy mentioned in her previous post that one of the reason why we are so KILIG for Kdramas is the OST. Each one of us has their own favorite. Mine – to this day – has always been  사랑인가요 (Perhaps Love) from the drama 궁 Goong (Princess Hours).

This OST has always made my heart flutter every time I hear it. It’s the first song that I learned to sing in Korean and it has always been a go-to noraebang song for me (because I know the lyrics by heart). Memorized much? you bet – since at that time I wasn’t able to read Hangeul yet.

I couldn’t recall of a remake of this song – and it hasn’t been sung much on Korean shows. However – early this year – March 24 to be exact, Eric Nam (에릭남) sang it in a show called Duet Song Festival.

Thank you Eric Nam and his duet partner for bringing LIFE. It has been so long since this song was played on broadcasts. I’m pretty sure that a lot of people aren’t familiar with the song. So for that THANK YOU  for  reintroducing this song to Kpop audiences again. [By the way – Eric Nam if you’re reading this, I’ve been a fan since your release of Heaven’s Door (천국의 문)].

Another reason to thank Eric Nam is because he released a track fro this song with Cheeze.

Although the video is quite short, but you can listen to this full track:

The song has a different vibe and style from the original one. The original one was a classic OST song, while this is a trendy one. I’m not really a fan of covers because at times they don’t give justice to the song. But with this cover – I’m not complaining (though Howl and J’s version would always remain a classic).

I’ve posted the lyrics to this song when I first started this blog (back when I didn’t know much what I was doing).  Because my obsessive compulsive tendencies on this blog are complaining, I’m re-posting lyrics for this song.

Perhaps Love – Translation

Since when has it been? I can’t remember…
When my head became dizzy with thoughts of you
Once or twice, these thoughts would pop up in my mind
I feel anxious as my heart opens more towards you
“It’s nothing”, “My heart is insignificant”
If I keep telling you, it would be – kind of awkward

Is it love? If you feel the same way, is it the beginning?
My heart keeps saying it loves you
It yells until the whole world can hear
Why has it taken so long for me to hear it?
We’ve finally met, Love has found us right now

I want to explain what’s in my heart now
(But) You’d have to become me, it’s the only way you’d feel it
I’m already inside you, as you’re inside me
With each other… (With each other)
Already, that we’ve been too familiar, we have no idea

Is it love? If you feel the same way, is it the beginning?
My heart keeps saying it loves you
It yells until the whole world can hear
Why has it taken so long for me to hear it?
We’ve finally met, Love has found us right now

If I try thinking about it, (If I try thinking about it)
At many moments,(At them)
How often did my heart flutter?
It might be a little late, but I’ll surely make it better

We’ll do it together, I’ll only give you memorable memories
Please don’t leave my side ever again
Even a shortest moments make me uneasy
Please stay with me
So much like this, (Much until that point)
I love you (Only you) already

사랑인가요 (Perhaps Love) – Hangeul

언제였던건지 기억나진 않아
자꾸 내 머리가 너로 어지럽던 시작
한 두번씩 떠오르던 생각
자꾸 늘어가서 조금 당황스러운 이 마음
별일이 아닐 수 있다고 사소한 마음 이라고
내가 네게 자꾸
말을 하는게 어색한걸

사랑인가요 그대 나와 같다면 시작인가요
맘이 자꾸 그댈
사랑한대요 온 세상이 듣도록 소리치네요
왜 이제야 들리죠 우 –
서롤 만나기 위해 이제야 사랑 찾았다고

지금 내 마음을 설명하려 해도
니가 내가 되어 맘을 느끼는 방법 뿐인데
이미 난 니안에 있는 걸
내 안에 니가 있듯이
우린 서로에게 (서로에게)
이미 길들여진지 몰라

사랑인가요 그대 나와 같다면 시작인가요
맘이 자꾸 그댈 사랑한대요
온 세상이 듣도록 소리치네요
왜 이제야 들리죠 우-
서롤 만나기 위해 이제야 사랑 찾았다고

생각해보면 (생각해보면)
많은 순간속에 (속에)
얼마나 많은 설레임 있었는지
조금 늦은 그 만큼 난
더 잘해 줄께요

함께 할께요 추억이 될 기억만 선물할께요
다신 내곁에서 떠나지 마요
짧은 순간조차도 불안한 걸요
내게 머물러줘요 우-
그댈 이렇게 많이 (그토록 많이)
사랑하고 있어요 (그대 하나만) 이미 –

6 Reasons Why Korean Drama Make us Kilig <3

Hi I’m Joy. I’m a fan of Kdrama and Kpop.
I’m currently into While You Were Sleeping & BlackPink.
I’ve always wanted to blog and so I couldn’t believe I’m posting my first post ever! Enjoy

——

First off let’s define Kilig!

** KILIG **
Noun:
– A sudden feeling of an inexplicable joy one gets when something romantic or idealistic occurs.

When a person is at the state of Kilig,  one may experience the following symptoms:
– butterflies in one’s stomach
– heart melting 
– shivers down one’s spine
irrepressible noises from one’s mouth
– uncontrollable smiling
– an inner conflict between hope of something wished for and reality

Here are 6 Reasons we think Korean Drama’s make us KILIG!

Reason #1 : Back Hug
Most of Korean Dramas have this action of affection. In my fangirling point of view back hugs not only made us kilig it made us smile and weep.

Here are my back hug favorite moments:
The Heirs
That time Kim Tan back hugs Cha Eun-Sang

giphy (1)

Scarlet Heart: Ryeo
Who doesn’t love it when 4th Prince Wang So back hugs Hae Soo
scarletheart

Love In the Moonlight
Hong Ra-on back hugs Lee Yeoung (Oh Bogum.. your smile makes us melt)
love in the moonlight

I still have many back hug memories in my mind I can’t enumerate. 😀
What are your favorite? You can comment below. 😀

 

Reason #2 : Grab and Kiss

Ahhh, who could resist feeling kilig when your favorite love team do this in drama you love. Like you can screeaammm your lungs out because you could do nothing but to scream! Your first impression usually: it’s harsh for a guy to grab the girl, but then you’ll realize it is romantic that after he grab her he make her feel protected then will kiss her. Sometimes it is a sudden kiss that our heroine could do nothing but to close her eyes and feel the moment!

 

Reason #3 : Cold Outside but deep inside super inlove

Most, but not all of Kdramas I’ve seen, has it’s lead actor treat the heroine with coldness but this treatment will eventually change into love. Then towards the middle of the drama, this harsh guy will eventually become the knight of the shining armor of our lady in waiting. Isn’t it kilig? It’s like you feel emotional outburst —  butterflies in stomach you can’t handle.

giphy

 

Reason #4 : Cutie Actor

When they smile or wink or just simple gesture make our heart melting.

Lee Min Ho, Park Bo Gum, Ji Chang Wook, Kim Bum, Song Jong Ki and other hot korean actors, there appearance make you kilig for no reason. We all have our favorites… whose yours? Comment below 🙂

Awww whose hearts wouldn’t melt when you see these:

We’re guilty including them in our prayers to be loved by the character we fall in the drama.
If you need a daily dose of kilig to light your day, best to follow your favorite Oppa in social media!

 

Reason #5 : The Scene itself

Setting is one of the vital component in drama. What i like about South Korea is there place is so romantic and their seasons (Spring,Winter,Summer,Fall) are the best. So let’s go back with our kilig topic. When you witness your favorite love team kissing under the falling cherry blossom tree plus the slow motion, your not just feeling kilig but also day dreaming it was you. HAHAHA

Or when our heroin feels cold in winter and then the leading man offers his hand for her to feel the heat. Ahhhh!! No wonder there are a lot of people visit each filming location of there favorite Kdrama and one day I will. (Crossing my fingers to this one!)

 

Reason #6 : OST (Original Sound Track)

Let’s not deny that after an episode, we can’t stop to hum the OST played with the vivid vision of what we saw and feel. Well, for me an OST can be one of the factor we feel kilig, the soundtrack when it is played especially on the scene that they are confessing there love for each other (heart bursting ahhhh).

It is in the OST that when it plays the feels of the Kdrama comes back (sigh).

My favorite has to be Davichi’s This Love (이 사랑) from Descendants of the Sun.

 

So there you go, my 6 Reason why Kdrama makes me Kilig I’m always hooked!

We want to hear what’s your favorite Kdrama and what makes you kilig. Comment down below.

Oguri Shun Alert – Rich Man, Poor Woman SP

OMG!!! Scream! Rich Man, Poor Woman is going to air and SP on April 1!

Richmanpoorwoman

Screaming fan girl on the loose!! kya!!!!

Ok.. so I haven’t watched J-dorama for sometime, the last two that I’ve watched are Lucky Seven (because of Matsumoto Jun) and Rich Man, Poor Woman (because of Oguri Shun). — can you tell Hana Yori Dango has it’s side effects! lol

But really I haven’t watched a J-dorama in a loooong time.. maybe because I am not familiar anymore with the actors. Every time I see a new Japanese actor, I am at a loss because I don’t know who they are anymore.. there are just too many of them to keep up. And too many dramas that I haven’t watched in awhile.

Last year though, I was looking for Oguri Shun’s dramas and I found Rich Man, Poor Woman. And I love it!!!! I watched all 11 episodes in 1 day!!! I miss J-dorama but I don’t know where to start watching!

rmpw sp

So when I read in another blog that they were doing a Special! I can’t help but scream! I can’t wait to watch Hyuga and Makoto!

rmpw2 rmpw3

From the pics that I have seen, it looks like they are shooting it in New York. You can read and see more pictures in koalasplayground’s post.

Omo… Oguri Shun is just too handsome here! I have to post it!

I can’t wait!!!

Flower Boy Next Door’s Last Week

I can’t believe it!!! This is week is the last week of Flower Boy Next Door (이웃집 꽃미남).

Flower-Boy-Next-Door-Poster-3

I wouldn’t get to see Ke-Geum or Go Kyung Pyo who exactly looks and sounds like Choi Siwon!

I know I haven’t posted much on the blog but I religiously watch out for this drama… well maybe i don’t have time to watch all 40 minutes of it, but I do watch out for the recaps! Yes, I am still busy but i succumb to one indulgence, which is this drama.

flower boy next door

I love this drama! It’s the last installment of TVN’s Flower Boy Series. Oh TVN, you’re a cable channel but your dramas are so wonderful! The drama PD’s they have are absolute geniuses! Most of their dramas are hits on my book, especially the Flower Boy series. There is not one that I did not like. I like this because it’s something that is very easy to watch, yet it’s something that is close to reality. I like that they do not follow the usual rich chaebol falls in love with a poor girl story line (though there is a chaebol in the story but it’s not following the same pattern). I like that they aren’t afraid to deal with an issues that are real and that really happen and I like that they throw a story line to incorporate a lesson which most teens can relate to.

flower-boy-next-door-9

go kyung pyo

Park Shin Hye and Yoon Shi Yoon could’ve fooled me to thinking they were really together! haha that’s how their chemistry works! I think, this is the best pairing Yoon Shi Yoon has had over the years. I really liked him in Kim Tak Goo.. In Me Too, Flower, he was funny but looked so young for the character. But this one, I could swear he is the perfect person to play Ke-guem!!!  I also love Park Shin Hye here. I think is the the best drama that I have seen her in. I love that she can Go Gok Mi’s character come to life. And Go Kyung Pyo… from the time I saw him on SNL where he played Siwon doppelgänger I like him. And now after Flower Boy Next Door, I totally think he sound the same as Siwon!!! Someone to look forward too.. and his acting is not that bad either.

That all said, I am going to be sad when this drama ends tomorrow. I hope I can find another as fun and deep as this drama.

Thank you Dok Mi, Ke Geum, Dong Hoon and Jin Rak for adding color to Monday and Tuesday drama. TVN keep this good dramas coming!!

Bonus, bonus!!! KE GEUM’S PANDA DANCE! Now who wouldn’t love this drama!!!

F4 (Jerry, Vic, Ken and Vanness) reunites for Chinese New Year

Xin Nian Kuai Le! Well actually that greeting came a bit late! Haha.. but I still wanted to say it! Happy Seollal!

I have been so excited for the past few weeks when I read that the original F4 (Jerry Yan, Vic Zhou, Ken Chu and Vanness Wu)  were reuniting for a show for Chinese New Year.

f4 reunion

I knew that the show was pre-recorded and I have seen some fancams already but I actually waited for the video of the broadcast to be available before making this post. And today, I finally found a video!

Meteor Rain 流星雨

First Time 第一时间

I am not sure if a lot of the new Asian fans would recognize them, but to me they were the reason why I succumbed to the Asian invasion. Before them, I only knew of boy bands who were from Europe or North America. Didn’t really cared that much about Asian boys. Until there was F4!!!

I could still remember how crazy I was over them. Not only me, this craziness swept the Philippines and it opened doors to having more Taiwanese, Japanese and Korean dramas being show in the country. But they were always the first. They were the original Flower Boys! Before everyone knew Go Jun Pyo, everyone was talking about Dao Ming Si! Before Boys Over Flowers (Korean) and Hana Yori Dango (Japanese) there was Meteor Garden.

Now, as I see them together again, I can’t help grinning from ear to ear! OMG!!  I know they have become mature now (I don’t want to use old!!), but it doesn’t stop me from liking them still. I have honestly waited for this reunion to happen. I have read that they have wanted to have one for the last 3 years but because of their schedules, they couldn’t do it. But this year they did and thank heavens they did! And goodness me, they are still so handsome! Zai zai ai ni! (pardon this crazy fan!).

This really really made my day! Wish they would do something like this again!

Note: I have to say thanks to koalasplayground.com for posting this. My Chinese is not as good as my Korean so I couldn’t find the videos. To see the original post, please click here.

Of Hiatus and the Joongki Fever

Hello!!! OMG!! I so miss writing on this blog.. I can’t believe it’s been weeks since I last wrote on my blog. I do enjoy writing but the new semester has started and I do have to pay attention with my job sometimes 🙂

Hehe.. but over the time I’ve been missing, there was one thing — or should I say person — who was keeping me company! It’s him!

Haha.. if you have been lurking in this blog for a long time, you will know that I like this man soo much! And it would not be a wonder why I got caught up with the Song Joongki fever!

I swear this guy is getting popular everyday! hahaha.. especially now with Nice Guy and Wolf Boy showing at the same time. Joongki is every where!! Haha.. He is not just Yeorim anymore! I am so happy everyone is recognizing his talents finally and not just that pretty boy image. This is finally his big break in the industry.

The only thing probably that I have indulge myself in these few weeks was watching episodes of Nice Guy. I swear this drama is killing me! I am more a fan of romcoms but this melodrama hit the right spot! But sorry no spoilers, will be writing about it in another post — when the drama is finished. But I think I could say I started to watch it for Joongki but now I’m watching it because is a worthy drama. Ahh why are you ending next week 😦

Anyhow… because I have caught with the Joongki bug, I am spamming pics of him when he had a photoshoot in the Philippines. I actually forgot I had these photos and I never posted them on my blog.. Anyway, I’m back to post as much as I can. Ending hiatus with the Joongki fever!! Kya ~~~ so handsome!!!

Song Joong Ki — Nice Guy Pic Spam

I haven’t been paying attention to too much dramas recently (Reply 1997 ended and I haven’t been watching too much Kdrama). These days, I’m busy keeping up with all the English series new seasons and premiers.

But I do watch one drama because of Song Joongki!!!

Now this is not a recommendation post but rather a pic spam post. Though I like the drama’s story and Joongki devious character, I will be waiting for the drama to end before I can recommend it.

So here are the many faces of  Song Joongki in Nice Guy.

Innocent Joongki

Serious Joongki

Smirking Joongki

Sexy Back!

Smiling Joongki

Say Ahhh

Cute Joongki

Saranghae ❤ ❤ ❤

 

This guy is really really handsome! I was talking to a Korean friend yesterday and she said he is handsome beyond words. His skin is even better compared to all the other actresses in Korea! Omg!

I’m pretty impressed with him in Nice Guy! On top of that he is very very handsome!

Hope you like it!

Hoya’s Dancing to Deux (from Answer Me 1997)

I know Answer Me 1997 (Reply 1997) has ended but i still can’t get over it and I haven’t watched too much drama because of it (except for Nice Guy).

I’ve been rewatching several episodes and I forgot that I didn’t post this on my blog. Well better late than never! haha

It’s Hoya of Infinite (who plays Jun Hee in the drama) dancing to Deux 나를 돌아봐 (Turn Around and Look at Me).

Dancing machine Hoya!! Daebak! I know he dances well among all the Infinite members.. and I think I like him more now than L! lol but Sunggyu’s still number one!

Hoya was also good for this drama, especially since it’s his first drama and to play such a role as he did (no spoilers first, will be doing a recommendation later!) is commendable, especially from an idol!

Will be watching out for more of Hoya! kya~~ ^_^

Seo Inguk and Jeong Eunji perform All For You @ MCountdown

Quick post…

I can’t get over this song.. hahaha.. maybe it’s because I’ve liked it before, or maybe because I’m going crazy over the drama, or maybe because I love this couple so much (my obsession these days haha) !!

Oh Seo Inguk! I just love your voice!

Anyway, Seo Inguk and Jeong Eunji perform All For You at MCountdown.

Sigh 2 more episodes before Reply 1997 will end… nooooo!!!
