JYJ Junsu proves that he is not ‘Uncommitted’ to music

I am reviewing this video a little late but I quite liked the vocals of Junsu in this video. Apparently ‘Uncommitted’ involved some nice production with some hotshot people from west and Junsu had once again proved his vocal excellence with this video.

The song is completely in English and the lady who starred in the video is also not an Asian plus the video had this whole English song vibe ! Yet why does this come under K Pop?? Ofcourse because Junsu, a hot Asian K Pop singer, belting out the sad lyrics ultimately means that this is a K Pop Song.

‘Uncommitted’ is a good song but there are slight factors which could have been tweaked and some which could have been underused.

Here is my review,

SONG:

I give my full votes to the song. YEY!!! Junsu’s vocals were awesome need i say that? The song was catchy and maybe not your typical K song with 80% Hangul and 20% English but was quite nice. His voice had that sexy silky feel which suited the mood of the song well.

The lyrics themselves were simple and angsty.

She said I couldn’t be committed
She said I’m too much of a player
Come on

Uncommitted
Uncommitted
Uncommitted
Ey, ey

It was all a dream
Reality was far from
the safe picture she painted for me
She told me I was the one and I believed
until the dream dissipated so suddenly

I don’t know why she was so compelled to leave
Something was messin’ with her psychology
I’m confused, she’s sayin’ something’s wrong with me,
But how can I fix something I cannot see?

She said, “You’re not ready
Baby, you’re not ready for the real thing”
She told me that I’d be
unfaithful and I cannot believe

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

How could this be, she’s telling me
I will never let her be my everything
She said I’m a player and I’ll never change
I feel that I’m ready to leave the game.

She said she could’ve never trusted a player like me
but baby that was part of my history
she’s telling me breaking hearts is a part of me
it’s like it’s in my system and it would never leave

She said, “You’re not ready
Baby, you’re not ready for the real thing”
She told me that I’d be
unfaithful and I cannot believe

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

I’m committed

Uncommitted, I’ll never admit it
and then i’ll never get it but somehow she could be right
Uncommitted, I’ll never admit it
and then i’ll never get it but somehow she could be right

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

So Junsu and his girlfriend are having a couple fight all cos Junsu is a player and he doesn’t like commitment *tsk typical men!!* He doesn’t understand how he can change his ways and he doesn’t even realise his  mistakes. He then slowly comprehends his mistakes but even by the end of the song he has not come up with a solution.

VIDEO:

The video and the song go hand in hand. There are three important scenarios throughout the video,

Living together couple: 

I think that the girl/baby whom he is singing about in his song is the blonde girl who we see is living together with Junsu *lucky girl sigh* There are some scenes of how they happily spend their time together. They are happy until we see them slowly braking apart. We see the girl crying and appealing Junsu which clearly shows her confrontation with him.

This is something which many can relate to cos there wont be any relation in this universe where confrontations have been not faced. So that scene is quite a normal and touching one.

Clubbing Couple:

There was another portion in the video. The Living together couple had different hair like Junsu had blusih green hair and the girl was blonde. But when the scene moves onto the club scene we see Junsu has brownish black hair and the girl who is dancing with him is also a brunette. This can mean either the first courting stage of the lead couple. The present couple’s past when they fell in love with each other and went on happy dates to clubs. Or it can mean that Junsu is indeed a player who is cheating on the blonde girl with the brunette.

I felt that the second scenario is more apt.. Cos of this part of the song..

Uncommitted, I’ll never admit it
and then i’ll never get it but somehow she could be right

It does look like he is admitting he is uncommitted and his cheating on his girl with another person can be an indication of his fear for commitment.

Deserted Couple:

There is another portion of the video where the brown haired Junsu and the brunette are together in a desert like background.

Does it signify that Junsu has been deserted by his love? Because he is uncommitted he has lost his true love and is now left with the girl who he preferred over his love. But is he happy? Nope.. Junsu doesn’t look too happy with his choice and so atlast all the cheating and non-committedness is just more reason for heartache and depression *dude what did i tell you? Stop cheating and get committed!!*

Well I think the video was quite straightforward and depicted Junsu’s relationship very well. His voice was awesome but he has to work on his accent. Yep I had a hard time to understand it the first time around but then it was quite ok as I replayed it.

Another thing which really bothered me in this video was the amount of smoke used? Does it like depict that Junsu’s relation is all smoky? or does it point that the earth is being increasingly polluted nowadays LOL!!

Sometimes effects and props must be used effectively and I felt that the smoky/foggy effect was overused. The colouring of the video was by itself sober and it did project the effect of sadness and remorse. I did not understand the reason for smoke to clog the screen too!! Come on I could not look clearly at Junsu kekeke!!

‘Uncommitted’ was quite an enjoyable song with a nice beat which can be easily sung along with. GOOD JOB !!!

BigBang is ‘Alive’ with hot songs of the year!

BigBang is one of the top Korean Boy groups and they are widely known for their widely different music style! They are capable of shifting from a party song with electric music to a sweet melody which shows their prowess in R&B. After a whirlwind of scandals which shook them last year Big Bang made their comeback in 2012 with a strong album ‘Alive’! I know I am quite late to post this but I have recently started listening to their music. I started with their old hits and gradually picked up the recent ‘Alive’ songs!! Gosh!!

I can actually see how they have evolved over the years and can see why they have been tremendously successful!

‘Alive’ has many songs but I have decided to rant and rave about these 4 songs with MVs because they were highly successful in youtube gathering many viewers! So lets see what ‘Alive’ is all about!

Fantastic Baby

Ideally ‘Fantastic Baby’ is the best song to show that they still haven’t lost their style! Out of the 4 I would give ‘Fantastic Baby’ the title of ‘Best Video Ever’ in this album. The opening with an owl made me think creepy and then we see G Dragon sitting in a throne practically smothered in hair! It looks like GD has been in same position for so long that his hair has grown out of control somewhat signifying his hiatus due to the scandal last year! And then after a strong opening scene we move onto the video!

MIND BLOWING!

Right from GD with his awesome hair and Taeyang who is all frozen but is slowly starting to thaw I was like shocked! And then enters TOP!!

Wow! Fantastic Baby!

TOP is easily the member with the deepest voice in Big Bang! And I really love how his deep rappers voice has been used in this video! His opening with bright blue hair on a painting shows he has the best visuals among the 5 *best enough to deserve a painting in the museum keke* and his ‘BOOM SHAKALA‘ made me fangirl to the maximum!

Daesung has deviated from his normal style for ‘Alive’ and I like his blonde look for it! When I see him chained I can only think of the pain he had to go through last year and then his vocals! He always amazes one with his high notes!

Finally SeungRi looks all sexy and mysterious in black surrounded by cat women! His body shows the scars which may denote all the hardships BB has to endure!

Being SeungRi biased I was upset he had few lines in this song but I can easily understand why he had so less! Ri is the owner of sweet soft voice in BB the exact opposite of TOP and anyone can see that ‘Fantastic Baby’ is not a sweet melo but a party song! But never fear SeungRi’s line was the most illuminating line for me in the whole song

Mama Just Let me be your Lover!

teehee!!

Wow Fantastic Baby! Starting of with all these sexy elements the song slowly became cute and fluffy at the end with all our adorable dorks dancing crazily! Just shows despite all the chaos and what nots at the end of the day Big Bang is just Big Bang and they are crazy as ever!

Fantastic Baby seems complicated when you see the video for the first time but I got addicted to it immediately as it shows each of the 5 members in a different scenario and all having their own activities and fighting all the ‘Stop Music’ shouts but finally they come closer as a group which all love and respect!

Bad boy

To Be Honest ‘Bad Boy’ was the song which I first liked in this album but then what happened later is a different story! Bad Boy is a classic song where the guy is all like ‘Dont love me am not good for you’ sorta thing and he tells his ‘Good Lady’ to leave him. To make the story short the guy wont change even if it means he has to lose the good girl! MEN!! It’s a universal thing for guys I see! Tsktsk!

Contrastingly ‘Bad Boy’ is very easy and straightforward. Big Bang members keep telling that they are Bad Boys to their girls who ignore them! Well I love Bad boys and so do 90% of female population so can I have you guys?? LOL!!
This song is What I would term the ‘The Cutest Song’!

It gave a hip-hop feeling and at the same time the trio of Taeyang, SeungRi and Daesung did provide their usual vocals in the middle which was the best! And the fashion of the members!! It was subtler than ‘Fantastic Baby’ but at the same time eye-catching.

G Dragon was heavily dressed with a fur like covering and just proving that he has a totally different fashion sense which not many of us can understand. TOP is also leaning towards that end but just have to say that the Skull necklace totally rocks! Wonder how heavy it is keke!

But being from a population of not-so-fashion forward I liked Daesung’s style simply because he was normal and his neutral coloured clothes blended with his bleached hair perfectly! Taeyang and SeungRi love  both your dance forever!!

‘Bad Boy’ is a light song and has a groovy music to listen to!

Monster

‘Monster’ is the bottom of my list simply because I was not impressed by the MV! It looked all action packed and stormy and from the future kind but sadly am not a fan of such things and so ‘Monster’ did not touch me like other songs did!

But with respect to the song Big Bang proved that their vocals are still on par with excellence and the weird hairdos do not deter their excellent singing skills!

My opinion for ‘Monster’..

But keeping aside my prejudices I sure have to say that whoever produced the MV is totally cool!

I was like this after seeing the video!

The video opens at a location which looks like a shooting ground and someone is running! Turns out it was TOP but only thing is TOP looks like an alien with weird eyes! In fact all 5 BB members looks different or in other words like a “monster”.

But please do not judge them from their outer appearance! As Daesung keeps insisting that despite a weird nose ring he is in reality a really nice guy! LOL!!

His words..

I love you! Baby I am not a monster!

I take your word Daesung but what is with your fellow member’s hair?

Taeyang who rarely experiments with different hair styles unlike somebody else *cough G Dragon cough TOP* tried something different this time!

The stylist must have just gelled Tae’s hair into two bunches which sadly resembled a Micky Mouse! heehee!!

But fortunately Taeyang came to the rescue of another member who had a  weird haircut and thus saved him by sacrificing himself!

I am talking about G Dragon’s blonde mushroom look! If the micky mouse hair did not exist GD’s mushroom would have been the talk of the town! I barely could see his face though the lip ring  did provide a nice distraction. Only normal person was SeungRi who had numbers scrolling on his forehead! LOL!!

Monster is ‘Most Mysterious Song’ in the album! Maybe ‘Monster’ will be liked by others who are into sci-fi and action stuff but I think ‘Fantastic Baby’ was sci-fi enough for me!

Blue

Here comes my most favourite song!!!! As I already said ‘Bad Boy’ stole my heart first and I would term it my first love but ‘Blue’ is my true love! I was a bit put off by the MV at first because it seemed slow and painful! But when I listened to the song carefully and knew what the meaning of the lyrics was I fell in love irrevocably!

YES! ‘Blue’ is a melancholy song which brings tears to one’s eyes with its beauty! But what is the soul of this song?

Not flashy videos or electronic autotuning!

It is just the breathtaking vocals of the members which made it so touching. SeungRi jus took the price this time! He had few lines in all the other hyper songs but he proved his power of sweet vocals with the beautiful chorus!

I’m singing my blues!

Whenever I hear him sing this line I hum along and just get drowned in the melody! G Dragon has once again proved that Big Bang is just not a group which produces breezy and electric songs but it can make one melt with heart warming melodies! Daesung and SeungRi prove that they are the best duo for the next collab unit in YG!! LOL!! Pretty please a Daeri album!!

The rap in this song was considerably slower and less frequent and the beginning of GD’s rap blended so well with Ri’s I’m singing my blues!

Though I was a bit disoriented by TOP’s rap part which seemed quite different to all the bluey vocals but then it did not do much damage!

And Tae’s unique style with the bandana is so adorable and him singing while sitting on top of a roof seems so normal too! ‘Blue’ and ‘Bad Boy’ had many similarities! The coloring of the video was same and the setting did not move around much lik ‘Monster’ and ‘Fantastic Baby’! Most of the times the 5 members were seen together in ‘Blue’ and ‘Bad Boy’ and this portrayed a nice unified image.

‘Blue’ speaks about breakup simple! I was impressed by the supporting actress in this video because she somehow fit into the video and did not seem awkward! The breakup can lead to tears and sorrow and can make one’s life blue because of sadness! But the opening line of winter having passed and spring at last reaching them gives one hope that despite being blue they can overcome their sadness.

In a way ‘Blue’ seems like Big Bang’s song to the world! When faced with a blue time thinking that they can never come back as a group their hearts were sad and filled with doubts. But this new comeback is their first step into the world with hope and trepidation. They have waited with bruised hearts till the winter has passed and now are ready to face spring!

Seeing the overwhelming response that Big Bang has received maybe it is time to start overcoming their fears and sadness! Big Bang you are not alone and your album shows that you’re ‘Alive’ once again and ready to rule the music world!

Blue ‘Best Lyrics’ credit to the mighty genius G Dragon!

Here is the english translation of this song..

The winter had passed
And the spring has come
We have withered
And our hearts are bruised from longing

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

Under the same sky, at different places
Because you and i are dangerous
I am leaving you
One letter difference from ‘nim’^
It’s cowardly but i’m hiding because i’m not good enough
Cruel breakup is like the end of the road of love
No words can comfort me
Perhaps my lifetime’s last melodrama
Now its final curtain is coming down

I was born and i met you
And i have loved you to death
My cold heart that has been dyed blue
Even with my eyes closed, i can’t feel you

The winter had passed
And the spring has come
We have withered
And our hearts are bruised from longing

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

I feel like my heart has stopped beating
You and i, frozen there, after a war
Trauma, that has been carved in my head
Once these tears dry up, i will moistly remember my love
I’m neither painful nor lonely
Happiness is all self-talk
I can’t stand something more complicated
It’s no big deal, i don’t care
Inevitable wandering, people come and go

I was born and i met you
And i have loved you to death
My cold heart that has been dyed blue
Even if you have left, i’m still here

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

Again tonight, underneath that blue moonlight
I will probably fall asleep alone
Even in my dreams, i look for you
And wander around while singing this song

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

My only regret is there were other awesome songs like ‘Ain’t No Fun’ ‘Stay Alive’ and more which did not get an MV!! Sigh!!

This post is solely based on my personal preference and it may differ for each and just have to leave a final note that the GIFs I used are not mine but the handsome work of many kindly souls!!

Before I start raving again I gotta run!!

See yah!! Until next time!

Love Rain – Episode 4 “Scribbles”

Just when things looked like the only problem in In Ha and Yoon Hee’s love life was some agitated friends who were pissed that their best friend did not confess his love, things get worse.

Episode 4 opens with a slight flashback of our couple. How In Ha fell in love in 3 seconds and the events that followed. Their beautiful love and the hardships they faced were portrayed by soft tones which made one want to replay these moments.

 

As the episode opens we see In Ha and Yoon Hee are having a romantic walk. In Ha and Yoon Hee both say that they were just out on a walk and not meaning to see each other. *Yah!! Right we belived you! LOL* Then In Ha confesses that he missed her and Yoon Hee replied she too missed him. *Yep thats more like it!* Our shy In Ha takes her hand and leads her to sit on a bench.

They look so cute!! SIGH! Yet why do I find my heart breaking ?

Yoon Hee looks worried on seeing In Ha’s hurt lips *Lol! Chang Mo’s handiwork* and In Ha calms her down by assuring her that his friends will understand eventually. He then questions whether Yoon Hee went to the hospital because she was sick. Yoon Hee replies “No” *which is a total LIE!!I have A BAD Feeling!* and then asks sorry to him. In Ha doesn’t want to hear Sorry from Yoon Hee and quotes this line “Love means never having to say sorry”

In Ha wants them both to never say sorry to each other. Yoon Hee agrees and they seal it with a pinky promise. In Ha is very happy and says “I feel good”

Their cosy chat is interrupted by a sweet music. Inside a building they find some girls and guys dancing to music and our couple also dance to the same. *Sweet!! sniffle -_- Where can I find such a love?*

Some things which I found that looked like an omen in this scene. In Ha’s voice over “I couldn’t realize it then. How she was preparing for the end” Yes! We all know that their love is never meant to be and In Ha’s thoughts just prove it right. It does break our hearts that all this cute moments never become a reality. And in another voice over In Ha confides that he completed the lyrics of “Love Rain” and he will sing it to Yoon Hee.

OK!! Let us get back to reality. This is where the good stuff ends. Everything goes downhill from now. Prepare your hearts people.

Yoon Hee is abused and called a slut by her other virtuous classmates. *Typical!*

In Ha and Dong Wook fight it out in the tennis court. *Manly brawl for the lucky lady*

Hye Jung is raving mad and is out to seek revenge on Yoon Hee. *Girl I can understand your pain but the problem is not Yoon Hee it is In Ha. You never managed to turn his heart over in 3 seconds*

During the fight over her Yoon Hee runs to see In ha getting hit by tennis balls as he refused to fight with Dong Wook. In Ha never wants to put Yoon Hee as a wager. Chang Mo and Yoon Hee try to protect the shy hero which drives Dong Wook even more mad. Poor Guy!

He leaves in a huff after Yoon Hee steps in front of In Ha and stops him. YEY! Girl power woot woot!

Hye Jung extracts her revenge by presenting her trump card. She reveals that In Ha had indeed read Yoon Hee’s diary and thus knew more about her. Yoon Hee is shocked because she thought of In ha as her other half who completely understands her. Hye Jung “Did you really think it was fate? It was all deceit” Poor Yoon Hee must have also felt the same and she sadly leaves the place. In Ha tries to follow her but Hye Jung interrupts him.


So Eun Seo did a good job as Hye Jung here. She revealed her heart to In Ha and I felt bad for her.

Hye Jung, “I like you a lot too. It’s just not your love that is full of tears. So stop acting like you’re the only one hurt. I like you just the way you like her but why do I have to be the bad one here?”

Very true indeed. In a way Hye Jung is just like Yoon Hee. She is also loved by Chang Mo but she loves In ha deeply. But here Hye Jung’s love is not reciprocated which makes her turn bitter. I believe if In Ha loved her Hye Jung would not have turned into a bad person at all. But one can never tell one’s heart to love or not to love. Love Happens Hye Jung. Hugs!!

In ha follows Yoon Hee and when the national anthem is playing and he cant stop himself giving her a hug. He wants to hold her and comfort her. But Yoon Hee pushes him away and runs off.

We see In Ha walking sadly in the rain and Yoon Hee reading her diary and reminiscing. She looks sad as only memories of In Ha fills her as she reads her diary.

She reads In Ha’s note for her at the back of her diary. He thanks the diary for bringing Yoon Hee close to him and also he asks for forgiveness. He confides that his heart was sincere despite what the whole diary reading freak situation suggests. He never wanted to lull Yoon Hee into a false relation.

Yoon Hee also remembers the time when she asked In Ha about the diary. He was ready to give something but she interrupted him by worrying over the fact  that In Ha or anyone else may have read her thoughts. Hearing that In ha had immediately hesitated. She knew that In ha never meant to cheat her or play with her feelings.

Outside in the pouring rain a sad In ha begs to Yoon Hee that what he did was wrong but he was happy that her diary helped him to get closer. He repeats that his heart was sincere. He begs to her and asks her to believe him. *Why does JKS look so hot when he is all wet and looking sad with those soulful eyes?*

Yoon Hee wants to reach out to him but she is doubled over due to a coughing fit which end up in her spitting blood into the handkerchief.

I knew it!!!

Is it cancer or tuberculosis?

The doctor answers that it is the last stage of TB in a flashback! Ripped heart!!


Yoon Hee had always looked sickly to me. I thought mayb it was the 70s effect Nah!! Seems they wanted Yoona to look pale and sickly.

She realizes that she cant burden In Ha and leaves to her home town after a leave of absence.

Meanwhile Cest La vie are having a fight because Chang Mo is upset that they wont perform the Radio Show. He vents his anger out through a rebellious song which is banned. *Apparently Korea had strict rules regarding singing songs with influential words. Example: Drinking, Politics*

In Sook interrupts them and relies the news of Yoon hee’s leave of absence. In ha and others try finding why she left but it was not a successful mission.

Ok there is something curious going on about Chang Mo! He is met by some fierce looking people who questioned him about a certain song that he and In Ha had written. Chang Mo tries to defend In Ha.

Chang Mo and In Ha have some guy talk in their dorm. In Ha confesses that he will go look for Yoon Hee and Chang Mo is amazed. He also confesses about his travel plans to In Ha where he plans to go on a trip after the radio show.

In ha leaves to Yoon Hee’s hometown after getting blessings from Dong Wook *hehe I knew you were a softie Mr. Over-confident Lee*


He arrives in a picturesque village which is Yoon Hee’s home town. He finds that Yoon hee has gone out for a walk. He finds Yoon Hee in an elementary school which he assumes is her father’s old school. Yoon Hee is playing the organ beautifully.When In Ha surprises Yoon hee she starts running away from him but In ha pleads with her to listen to him. He asks for forgiveness but Yoon Hee turns it down saying thay In Ha did wait outside her class to give her diary back but she did not give him a chance at all.

She further breaks his heart by saying that she never felt any love for In Ha. Her feelings were never real as she only wanted to find a guy who understood her. In the end Yoon Hee revealed that she felt ashamed of using both In Ha and Dong wook and thus ran away in shame.

In ha doesn’t believe her and calls her reason as lies but Yoon hee pushes his hand away without listening to him and scoots. Poor In Ha with reddened eyes shouts that he will be waiting for her at the radio show and asks her to come.

How hard it must have been to Yoon Hee? She doesn’t want to be a burden to In ha and with her whole issue of TB how can she promise everlasting love? Her bottled up feelings burst out as she cries to her grandma that she will return to Korea after getting better treatment in USA.

Her zest to live and love can be seen in her tears. Poor Yoon Hee!! -_-

And then we come to the day of the radio music show! We have a reconciliation between Dong wook and In Ha. And Chang Mo receives a kiss from In Sook which makes him shy *such a cute pair kekeke!!*. In Ha and Hye Jung also have a truce.*yet she looks sad*

In Ha is anxiously waiting for Yoon Hee who is a no show till now. Cest la vie walk out on stage and In Ha explains about how he wrote the lyrics for Love Rain for a special girl. As they are about to start the song In ha sees Yoon Hee walking in. His face blooms on seeing her and he starts singing! What a SONG and in Suk’s voice opening it *_* !! I fell in love with it. And the PD did a good job by showing all the love pf the characters during that song.

In Ha and Yoon Hee’s fated love with so many trials. Dong Wook’s love for Yoon Hee which is tapped from his lost mother’s love. Chang Mo’s sincere and selfless love for Hye Jung. Hye Jung’s secret and fierce love for In ha. In Sook’s childish crush/love for Chang Mo!

I really love this scene and as Yoon hee’s eyes fill with tears so do mine. In Just 4 episodes I was able to see such varied types of love. So beautiful.

As they sing the next song we see some Police men enter Chang Mo/ In Ha’s dorm and ferret out some books which look like they are rebel materials! Hmmm!

After the song gets over Cest La vie get a sound ovation and they start leaving the stage when Chang Mo sees the policemen waiting to nab him. He runs away and also asks In Ha to flee. But In Ha is late to respond and is captured by the police. Yoon Hee panics on seeing In Ha captured and she has an attack of coughing fits and she faints.

Dong Wook sees Yoon hee faint and he runs to her aid. He finds Yoon hee’s coughed up blood and is horrified.

In Ha is jailed and Dong Wook visits him. He enquires after Chang Mo and Yoon hee. Dong wook lies that he doesn’t know anything about Yoon hee.

Meanwhile a runaway Chang Mo gets some help from Hye Jung for food, clothes and money.  He looks shabby but is still the same dorky guy who gives a hug to Hye Jung and runs away.

Yoon Hee asked Dong Wook not to reveal her health condition to In ha and promises she will return after getting better to see In ha. Dong Wook reluctantly agrees.

In Ha gets ready to leave for military service and everyone gives their farewell. Dong Wook then gives him a letter from Yoon Hee. Yoon Hee returned the watch which was In Ha’s gift and wrote a touching letter.

She thanked In Ha for a wonderful time. For protecting her from the rain, for singing her a song, for listening to her, for watching her favourite movie, for making her happy.. Yoon Hee thanks In Ha. She is also sad that she couldn’t say her good byes before leaving for America. She returned the watch because she cannot spend time with him. She also hopes that they can meet in the future.


Yoon Hee, “Thank you for everything. It was fun. I was happy with you.”

In Ha, “It was the last time. She left me a letter and disappeared from my life. However she never mentioned she was sorry in her letter. So I had always believed that this love didn’t end”

Poor In Ha!! He is crying rivers when he reads the letter. Her last words to In Ha. He notes that she never once said sorry and hopes that their love will not die. Dong wook finally breaks the silence and reveals that Yoon Hee left due to her failing health and she will be back. He asks In Ha to wait for Yoon Hee.

The train moves as “Love Rain” plays in the background and a tearing In Ha looks out of the window thinking of the lost love. And then as the train moves we see a frowning JKS with a camera snapping pictures of a snowy background! WOAH!! We are in 2012 judging from Suk’s ponytail and chained earrings *teehee love that hair and earrings..Girls he is gonna be a heartbreaker for sure!!*

Officially it is time for me to start my drooling session with the hot son Seo Joon!

What a way to shift from 1970 to 2012. If only a single train ride can give you a make over as cool as Seo Joon’s we would all be jumping into trains…kekeke!

The sexy photographer walks out on the pavement when he is hit by a bounding tornado in the form of a girl. Enter Yoona as Jung Ha Na!! Omg!! Totally reminds me of when In Ha and Yoon Hee banged into each other.

Mr. Sexy Joon looks annoyed and our cute and bubbly Ha Na apologizes. Way to start the relation when their parents kept going on about how love is never saying sorry. The first words exchanged between these two is sorry. LOL!! But as the parents weren’t successful their strategy must be wrong so let’s see how the young ones come up with a new formula.

And as Sexy Joon and Ha Na stare at each other we hear Suk’s voice “ONE TWO THREE”


 What an ending!! Am so excited!

Now getting back to my views on Ep 4! It was such a sad part with so much tears. I felt so bad for In Ha and Yoon Hee and wanted them to be together so much. My heart was paining for them.

Especially JKS crying for his lost love used up so many of my tissues. I really wish that things worked differently. But when I saw the 2012 leads gosh I was hooked. I cant recognise In ha or Yoon Hee in them. A 180 degree transformation which made me fall for them. I will ship these two for sure and fervently hope Ha Na is healthy as a horse because she looks like she needs it to battle it out with Sexy Joon! No TB for Ha Na PD!

Overall am very pleased with 1970. The acting was good from all even the smaller characters like In Sook. Yoon Hee could have been written more lively but maybe she is just that a beautiful apparition who will turn your heart over. And the cinematography with those lush scenery was mind blowing.

I know Suk is capable of acting well so I wasn’t much surprised by his portrayal of In ha. Though a shy and reluctant lover is different for Sukkie as I am more used to seeing HTK type snobs from him. Just shows JKS is really capable of portraying anything.

In terms of Dong Wook’s character I wasn’t much impressed with him but I will reserve judgement on Kim Si hoo as he is supposed to be in 2012 too. So Eun Seo as Baek Hye Jung was brilliant. She showed that love can also turn bitter if it is not reciprocated. Chang Mo aka Seo In Guk was a cute and adorable dork.

Will miss In Ha very much but onward to Mr Sexy Joon with those cool earrings!! FIGHTING!


Girls’ Generation Boom with Paparazzi!!

WOW!!! SNSD’s Paparazzi is out!! I was waiting for this new MV very much lol as I pointed out here.

And what a blast it is!!

Cr: 

I really loved the opening!! As shown in Teaser the gals just walk out amid some flashy cameras and then they assemble in a theatre like place. *I think the concept is that audiences are watching SNSD In an operahouse like setup*

They walk out or rather dance gracefully out *an oldie song Singing in the rain plays in the Background* wearing long trench coats and then suddenly the camera starts flashing *wow I give you gals marks for making use of the camera flashes to suit the concept Paparazzi* and then complete silence…

They remove the coat and throw it!!

YAY!! Party-time 😛

Gosh the opening !! Uh-la-la-la..Uuuh-la-la-la!!! HOT!!

Yoona at the centre doing the sexy move made me swoon! *Ok I admit I am a Yoonaddict teehee but seriously the way she danced*!!! I was swept away!! Their costumes in black and red and their retro styled hair was just right! The glitzy clothes did not see off for the beat of the song and also the dull background highlighted them well.

The move these gals make when Boom!!Boom!! comes!! LOL!!! My Bias speaking here…I think Yoona does it well especially at 2:45 she seems more flexible and sexy:D

And then we move to the girls standing in some weird place *looked like some weird disco hall kekeke* and in white and black outfits. Their hair was slick and cool in ponytails! BUT whats with the Gloves? LOL!!! is it to draw attention to their hands? Can’t they have used white then why Pink? which doesn’t suit their outfits nor the background!! 

Guess we have to NOT see the gloves which is very hard once we start noticing it kekeke!!

The Click sound symbolizing a Camera shutter in  the middle also seems catchy !!

The ending seems perfect with them going back to their innocent trenchcoated self looking like they never danced the sexiest Boom dance and then twirl out of the stage!Aww cute!!

The curtains close and the audience clap and appreciate their musical performance! A Different musical indeed!

My feelings!!

The song may be hard to understand but the Choreo is just amazing. The girls synced perfectly. And to my eyes Sunny stood out well !

I think her blonde hair among the masses of brown and black and her different style was perfect and she didn’t blend in despite her height.

Maybe other girls like Hyoyeon did not get that much time in the front but I think Paparazzi is not just about Individual lines or dance steps.

The Choreography is so detailed that even if one of those 9 girls did a mistake it will get amplified. So Paparazzi is a whole team effort. SM Ent also revealed there may be more than one version of Paparazzi and already a dance edit was released.

Cr: 

Seeing this shows just how much work has been done! And each member contributed whatever they could.

My personal favorite is the First edition because I love the opening in it. Plus Yoona looks adorable in it!

And to all those who would love the lyrics if you wanna sing along..

‘Shine the light’ G-Dragon concert rocks!

After Jang Keun Suk rocking Japan yesterday another K Pop fever which hit headlines was Big Bang entering world charts with their new album Alive!!

But I am not here to talk about it..We shall deal with that in another analysis..

I am very much attracted by the Big Bang idols. Especially their style. The way they dress and carry themselves around is  awesome.

Coming to G-Dragon who wouldnt like that cute guy with weird hair color and hairstyles who looks like everything a cute K guy must look like. But what differentiate GD is though he maybe look like just another Korean idol who is a pretty boy he knows what to wear and how to wear. His fashion sense is legendary in K world and in the concert he adopted the manly look which was even more emphasized due to the shaved hair style.

But boy was I wrong!! G-Dragon IS SCALDING HOT!!!

He is just not cute but he rocks the stage with this song!

He performed this in his concert “Shine the light” 

I know this is quite old but seeing this years later doesn’t stop me admiring the props on stage.

A bed!! LOL!!! 

Enjoy seeing our cutsie G-Dragon meander his way sexily on stage!! And his voice was way hot. I was very much surprised that his singing live on stage was so cool under the circumstances.

Cr:  

Here is GD’s hot performance of his song ‘A Boy’ at the concert. GD in white hot pants was just the perfect sight and his transformation for Michael Jackson’s song in the middle nearly killed me! Imagine G Dragon dancing to MJ’s ‘Dangerous’!! He made a remix with Shine the light and Dangerous which just blew me off..

Credit:  

And right at 2.52 onwards I lost my precious eyesight! Was blinded for a few minutes! Just check the video to understand! Seriously whenever GD steps on the stage he changes and transforms into an epic entertainer! KUDOS!

Love Rain – Episode 3 “Scribbles”

poiler Alert: This is a recap of one of the episodes of the drama. Do not read if you don’t want us to break the suspense/surprise that comes ahead.

Episode 2 had ended with In Ha on the brink of confessing something important to his friends! We all expect that he will reveal who his 3 seconds girl!! Hold your breath…

1 2 3…

In Ha “I am going to join the army”

There goes our hope. One cant always guess correctly I see !!
His friends who are expecting a happy news are shell-shocked by this.  They start pestering him for details. Why? When? Hye Jung is asserting her rights as a friend *ahem* and demands his answer.

Ok!! Leave the friends. What is Yoon Hee thinking? I assume she is having a guilt trip again. She asks In Ha whether the reason for his sudden enlistment is to escape from her. In Ha replies No..and then goes onto confess his love.

A most wonderful confession! The scene was so beautiful.. Kudos to the cinematography!

In Ha to Yoon Hee,”My Paintings..It’s not that you happened to be in my scenery. You were my scenery that day. Ever since the first time I met you my scenery was always you. It was a beautiful scene and it always fluttered my heart. Thank you and sorry for being a coward”

Yes…In Ha you were a coward for hiding your feelings for so long.. Tears!!

And I love her response.. Though it was heartbreaking Yoon Hee was correct,”If Only you had told me this a little earlier” Yes.. Just when Yoon Hee had finally succumbed to Dong Wook`s courting.

In Ha just silently buries his love in his heart.

As expected all his friends are angry with In ha for not consulting them about his plans. They do not understand that In ha is doing this inorder not to hurt them. But Dong Wook finally flares up when In Ha announces that he is leaving to his home town and will not return until after his 2 years of enlistment. In Ha promises Cest La vie’s radio show will go as planned and he will not skip it.

Dong Wook goes to Yoon Hee for some peace of mind after In Ha manages to put him into a crappy mood. Dont worry Dong Wook for once I am on your side. Even I am upset because of In Ha’s noble plan.

He cajoles Yoon Hee to accept to go on a date claiming that he has a bad day tomorrow. Buddy! You have got a worse surprise in store!! Oops!!

In Ha starts preparing to leave. He collects his stuff together. When it comes to Yoon Hee’s paintings he is reluctant to pack them. He leaves her paintings and diary in the pandora’s box aka his cupboard. Uhmm!! Why do I get a bad feeling about this?

Yoon Hee receives a gift. In Ha has left a spring watch to Yoon Hee which is one of her favourites as a farewell gift. He also leaves a goodbye note and starts for the sketch trip outside Seoul. In Ha will not be returning.

The note says “I will always wish for your happiness no matter where I am – Seo In Ha”

Yoon Hee realises that she will never get to see In Ha and rushes off to see her true love. Unfortunately she leaves that little note behind which falls into Hye Jung’s hands. DRAT!!! That girl was puzzling over In Ha’s sudden departure and then she realises the truth. She hurries over to In Ha’s studio/workplace to confirm her fears. On the way Chang Mo realises that In Ha’s secret stashes are in trouble. He tries stopping Hye Jung but that girl is determined. She sees the portraits of Yoon Hee and her diary in the pandora’s box and realises that In Ha`s love is mirrored in the paintings.

Yoon Hee follows In Ha to the sketching trip but unfortunately cannot find him. She returns dejectedly to the train station when she sees the infamous “Love Story” being screened in the theatre. And it starts raining.

Fate again interferes and who walks out of the theatre but our In Ha. I love how others just dissolve into nothingness as In Ha and Yoon Hee meet each others’ gaze. She reveals how much she misses him.

And then follows one of the most cutest part of this episode. In Ha and Yoon Hee watch the movie together. And In Ha is so shy to comfort Yoon Hee as she cries in the theatre. Come on In Ha you can do it!! Just grab her hand…Sigh Nope folks our hero is still reluctant.

And then luckily the last train to Seoul has left. After some brazen hand grabbing by Yoon Hee *Yes am officially team Girlzzz* In Ha and Yoon Hee catch the night train to East Sea rather than spending a cold night out in the station.

Meanwhile back in Seoul Hye Jung is upto no good. She tries to find out the whereabouts of In Ha. She even follows Chang Mo to their dorm to find if In ha is there. And our Over-confident Dong Wook is stood up. He is informed by Chang Mo that Yoon hee is detained but he sadly holds onto the bouquet he bought for her.

This line by In Ha aptly fits in “I knew that I was going to hurt everyone. But I was so happy that I couldn’t stop myself” Yes In Ha’s love though beautiful was serving a lot of pain to all. Dong Wook,Hye Jung,Chang Mo. Was his love selfish then?

In Ha and Yoon hee have a beautiful train journey with sweet moments. They reach the east sea and both have a wonderful time. In Ha finally delivers a kiss on her cheek (Ok so the kiss wasn’t exactly on the cheek but considering our shy hero with no experience and also his eyes were closed so we shall forgive him LOL)

They happily finish the lyrics of Sarang Bi song!!

“I want to know about you more. How you lived,how you ended up here.How you’re feeling now.Just like your father who had spun the springs on the watch everyday, I want to stay with you everyday. I want to stay with you a long time. I love you – Seo In Ha”

What a beautiful line In Ha thinks over as Yoon hee rests peacefully.

There is trouble brewing elsewhere. Hye Jung finds out through In Ha’s fellows artist friends that Yoon hee had indeed gone to see In Ha and both spent the night travelling to East Sea. Hye Jung, In Sook, Chang Mo decided to hide things from Dong Wook.

In Ha and Yoon hee return during these troubled times. In ha realizes that Yoon Hee is sick and asks her to go to the hospital while he talks with Dong Wook. He promises not to take the full blame. In Ha comes to the cafe to see his friends, he starts confiding about Yoon hee while Chang Mo tries to stop him. Dong Wook is shocked. Chang Mo tries to stop In Ha from hurting Dong Wook by hitting In ha. Ouch!!


In Ha leaves the cafe with the statement he will never leave Yoon Hee. Dong Wook further learns about Yoon Hee standing him up and spending the night with In Ha (Come on people!! They were on a train..And stop punishing Dong Wook so much. He has heard enough!)

So the saddest part is just starting. Yoon Hee faints in the street. She is taken to the hospital where she looks so pale. Uh-Oh I foresee trouble!

In ha is sadly reflecting over what happened and Chang Mo his noble buddy also refuses to talk with him.

Yoon Hee returns from the hospital where she is confronted by Dong Wook. She tries to protect In ha and takes the blame on herself which angers Dong Wook further who leaves with the following oath “I will never forgive InHa” Men!!!

Both In Ha and Yoon Hee are quietly thinking of their love when both feel an urge to meet the other. They run out and meet on the street. Episode 3 closes with happy In ha and Yoon Hee running towards each other.

 

This episode just moves things along a little bit faster. We got the confession and first stage of relationship for In Ha and Yoon Hee. We had a breakup for Dong Wook. And I think we have the birth of a nasty enemy in the form of Hye Jung!

My heart hurts. Just seeing In Ha and Yoon Hee and their romance. I Know this will not last and so I feel sad. Also another instant where I felt bad was when In Ha was practically looked like someone under trial. He did not confide about Yoon Hee because clearly Dong Wook pushed him away with his overconfident assness(excuse my new word LOL!! But I would describe Dong Wook’s actions till now as foolish). He never said he loved Hye Jung or he was even interested so she was building false castles. And my Chang Mo!! Why did you hit In Ha?? Heartbreak!! Let us see if the friends will support In Ha in the next Ep. And I am mighty worried about Yoon Hee’s health! Onward to Episode 4!
