FT Island likes to keep it simple and sweet with ‘I wish’

Featured

I heard the live version of this song in this week’s SBS Inkigayo which ultimately made me search for the video and kaboom here springs a review!!

FTI have some strong points and some weak points! One of their strong points is their Music! I felt the pull even though the song ‘I wish’ is not my genre of music. They have good vocals too in the form of LEE HONG KI! The song and video ‘I wish’ was completely Hong Ki centred but it did not make me feel weird. I loved how Hong Ki carried the whole song. In fact in my eyes I could not see the other members at.. Sorry guys! I swear it is Hong Ki’s fault. He is like a life size cartoon character.

Cr:

I knew Hong Ki was cute from watching You’re Beautiful and other variety shows but I could never guess he can also pull this cuteness factor in love songs too!!

I officially add Hong Ki into the list of irresistible cute idols along with these guys!

Excuse my spazzing over Hong Ki!

But sadly I wasn’t completely satisfied with ‘ I wish’ Since it is the title song of the albume ‘Five treasures’ I expected the video to be a tad more interesting than this. Honestly the video did not do justice to the song. If this video was released as one of the extra MVs I would have been happier but the problem was it lacked the ‘Title’ song material. But it did have some plus points not a complete pushover.

SONG:

As I previously stated the song hooked me and the lyrics was not rocket sciene! It is pretty simple..

You’re so pretty, I want you
You’re so nice, I want you
I usually don’t look at girls but why am I acting this way, like a fool?

Every single day, I only think of you
Even when I close my eyes, I only think of you
Each time I see you, my heart trembles and I can’t breathe

Baby, I wish it was me, I wish it was so
Lonely lonely oh my love
I wish your love was me uh uh uh uh uh uh
Baby, I wish it was me, I wish it was so
Lonely lonely oh, love me
I don’t wanna be alone anymore uh uh uh I love you

Even when I’m meeting someone else, I only see you
Even when I’m thinking about something else, I only see you
Even when I see someone else, I have no interest
Why am I acting this way, like a fool?

I guess it’s love – I can’t catch a wink of sleep
I guess I love you – I keep thinking of you
When I meet you, I get happy like a kid

Baby, I wish it was me, I wish it was so
Lonely lonely oh my love
I wish your love was me uh uh uh uh uh uh
Baby, I wish it was me, I wish it was so
Lonely lonely oh, love me
I don’t wanna be alone anymore uh uh uh I love you

I love you, love me – believe me, believe me
I can do anything for you uh uh uh
No matter how much you try to find someone special
No matter how much you try to find someone like me, there won’t be anyone else

Can you see my heart? Can you hear my heart?
Please accept my pure love oh
I’m here, waiting and waiting for you
I only love you alone

Baby, I wish it was you, I wish it was so
Love me love me, oh look at me
I wish my other half was you uh uh uh uh uh uh
Baby, I wish it was you, I wish it was so
Love me love me, oh I love you
If it’s not you, I don’t wanna be in love uh uh uh I love you

Baby, I wish it was me, I wish it was so
Lonely lonely oh, love me
I don’t wanna be alone anymore uh uh uh I love you

The music score for this clearly displayed the band members talents. While the song itself was carried by very strong vocals by Hong Ki the music which was oddly catchy was led well by the guitar and drums. I esplecially loved the drum piece by Min Hwan. And the opening with guitar provided just the right note to begin with.

Just stating again!! I LOVE THE DRUM BEATS!!!!!!!!!! *Ok am done lol*

And the slightly slow rapping towards the middle by Jaejin was such a cool diversion too. Will give my full votes to the song.

VIDEO:

Moving onto the video I felt FTI wanted to keep it simple because their song is simple. I dunno what this logic is anyways what happens is Hong Ki is feeling sad that the girl he loves doesn’t pay any attention to him but is cuddling  close with the other members of his band. One major turn off in this video was the  GIRL! She looked bored most of the time and not even half amused when all these cute guys shower her with attention. Yeah maybe she does look lik a hybrid of IU and Yoona but that doesn’t mean she can jus pass off the whole video with the expression ‘Why am I even here??’

She practically made me ask Hong Ki “Hong Ki ah open your eyes! Your fans will give you more expression than her!”

This GIF basically sums up the girl’s attitude in the MV! Especially when the singer goes all puppy eyes and confesses by placing her hand on his heart her face was “Am bored! NEXT”

Poor Hong Ki!

Come here Hong Ki! I shall take you along with those adorable dork glasses and all! keke!

Now that I have ranted about the complete absence of emotions on the girl I have to talk about FTI’s very own energy bunny! Lee Hong Ki!

As much as I was irked by the girl I stuck through video cos of Hong Ki’s vivid facial expressions. His dorky dance moves and his expressions in the middle was just too endearing! FIST SQUEEZE!!

And he also accessorized with some different hair bands which just made my day!

I think the entire concept behind this MV was that FTI was jus a normal band out doing a gig and the song they were singing involved the singers past experience with one of his crushes who found him not that much attention worthy. I dont know what HK saw in that girl honestly as she practically dates or hangs out with everyone but gives him the cold shoulder! GOSH!! In ways Love is Blind to faults I guess!

Video could have been better but I really enjoyed the song and survived the video cos of HK and his antics! His life performance had more actions from him lol!! Do check this cutie guys! Cant really say much for the members cos as I said I felt others blended to the background and HK was the main focus in my eyes. He did his role justice by showing how he liked the girl!

Fashion wise FTI has a long way to go! U can do it guys!! I liked HK’s wardrobe except maybe one of the pants he wore! Seriously Printed pants??!!! It could have been better with a better female lead and a stronger concept!

Jang Keun Suk portrays the sad love life of a celebrity with his MV ‘Stay’

I was literally blown away…

I have listened to this song before but I never guessed it could be so beautiful and capable of moving viewers. Jang Keun Suk has strayed away from the path he paved in his last few music videos like Let Me Crazy, Crazy Crazy Crazy where the set was gloomy and doomy and he kept singing along with very strong electrical background. Infact his voice tends to get submerged by the heavy electrical music.

But with Stay Sukkie showed what he is good at. FEELING!

Jang Keun Suk is a genius when it comes to this. He is not a acting star for nothing as he has proved with scores of dramas, movies. Now he also proves he can bring that genius touch to his music videos too.

Credit:

I Hereby declare STAY as my most favorite Suk MV of all times. Cos am more of an acoustic ballad type than the rock/metal kind *ahem letmecry cough*

Enough rambling and lets get movin!!!

SONG:

Here is the translated lyrics to the song Stay… It is a Japanese song from his album “Just Crazy” but as he is a Korean product this Hallyublog will be talking about this. jeez whatever Sukkie does I will review it..Be it Chinese, Japanese, English or Tamil (last one I wish)

If I put a glass of water in those days
Do Nijin transparent storage

Like sand slipping through your hands going down this
Time I will not go back anymore

There she had to stay where I will not stay

Passing each other feelings can not reach
You along on parallel lines
slow slow gone
I just wanna stay, yes I have to stay
Come true that you’re here I season
Even now I do not wake up yet
Here here here I have to stay

From the night sky and I go misty eyes moist
Glitter-drenched memory

As the snow with you to erase footprints
Time flows incessantly

There she had to stay where I will not stay
Passing each other feelings can not reach
Are you so slow slow gone on parallel lines
I just wanna stay, yes I have to stay
I was still in the season when you’re here
Still remains Tachidoma~tsu
Here here here
(Hands stray) or from the time
From some time it (farther)
Not be touched
Are you so slow slow gone on parallel lines
I just wanna stay, yes I have to stay
Come true that you’re here I season
Even now I do not wake up yet
Here here here I have to stay

This maybe not an exact translation but I think many of us can get the general meaning.

It is a sad love song.. *Gosh this is my third straight sad love song to be reviewed..Is this not a good time for lovers? That XX check, Uncommitted Check and now Stay Check*

This is from Sukkie’s viewpoint and I just want to say that the lyrics are just like a poem. A very sad poem. He is talking about his love he lost. His love has left him. And I guess there is no particular reason it just happened as time passed by.

As the snow with you to erase footprints
Time flows incessantly

He does try to forget and continue with his life but he finds it difficult as he is reminded of her always. That is the place where Stay comes. This song means that Jang Keun Suk cannot move along and he stays in the old memories.

Look how he depicts that..

Even now I do not wake up yet
Here here here I have to stay

From the night sky and I go misty eyes moist
Glitter-drenched memory

He is filled with tears as he is not able to overcome the memory which is drenched with glitter which means the memories were golden and precious.

Jus one word WOW!!

Such a meaningful song. I can feel how much he is aching.

But since this is from the guy’s view point we dont know how the girl is faring. Maybe the music video will shed light on that.

Overall I have to say that I am very much satisfied with the song. The lyrics jus blew me and made me all teary eyed.

VIDEO:

What one would have expected was a typical boy loves girl, they breakup and boy cries scenario. Asia Prince always does it with style.

He did not take any ordinary guys life to act it out. He depicted his own life. That was what amazed me. The beginning of the video had Sukkie and the cute adorable lady take a couple picture. And then the video slowly whites out and then we see the couple out on a date. He looks happy and she looks charming in a straw hat. Next scene we have Sukkie thinking seriously as he travels in his car!!

SO That was jus a memory. His car passes the girl and she doesnt see him which shows that they have grown far apart.

Then comes the most amazing part of the video to me. We see Sukkie walk out of his car with a sad face and a dozen cameras does the flashing. So it means that Jang Keun Suk acts as Jang Keun Suk for this video. As in this video is like telling his own love story. How tough a celebrity’s love life is. He had to keep a poker face in front of the camera and then he goes on to practise his lines probable for a drama/movie. That is the difference between a normal person and an Idol/Star. If normal people break up they can watch sad K dramas, wallow in tears and eat loads but an idol has to just move on.

Maybe He/She cannot pick up the broken pieces of their heart and no one can do it for them. Pain is inevitable and there is less chance for comfort.

He just continues while the video shows the girl jus sitting idly and gazing. She is not the happy bubbly girl when she was with Sukkie. Yes she too had changed but unlike Sukkie she is not a celebrity and thus she doesn’t have to put on fake smiles for countless photoshoots/interviews.

At the end of the day Sukkie finally rests around midnight when he is suddenly filled with an urge to go look for his girl. Then comes the sad part. He starts running to find her. He goes to her room and tries to find her but she is not there. Maybe she moved away. He starts running and as he runs all those buried bitter-sweet images come bursting out. How he used to spend time with her in a leisurely way in their home. I guess no clubs or theme parks cos he is a celebrity. But I really love the harmony they showed. The mood in the home was relaxing and romantic. Though they were cooking something it had a domestic feel.

This is where I have to appreciate Suk. Whoever is the opposite lady Jang Keun Suk is capable of bringing out the romantic emotions more than anyone else. He can immediately make the love to shine through. The audience can feel the chemistry which is visible so brightly.

He keeps running around searching for her. He did bring a bouquet but that was forgotten at her home. And then he finally ends up in a bridge which makes him cry. He cries so beautifully. Anyone who has seen Love Rain/YAB/MMM or any of his other dramas can attest to that. This man can cry with feeling I tell you.

Why was he crying? Because of a really sweet memory he had in that place. On one of their dates the girl’s straw hat flew off and he secured it again on her head with care. He cant control his tears and realizes that only he has been ‘staying’ while she is no longer his.

The epilogue of the video was really touching. Here  I was blindly hoping that as he ran he will meet her on the streets and jus hug and everything will be right as rain. NOPE!! That is not how it is in Celebworld. He jus looks at the photo they took previously and gently caresses her image.

Does this mean that he will never forget her? He will not be able to love? Or that he has decided to move on and thus say his farewell the last time?

NO IDEA! Cos the video closes with that scene…Talk about a cliffhanger. I was like “Show the preview of next episode dude” when I realized this is a music video DUHHHH!!” Awesome!! We just have to settle for a sad ending unless there is a sequel to ‘Stay’ called Lets Play tsk!!

A last note.. His sexy and masnly voice suits ballads like bread and butter and the combo of his voice and Stay is just as yummy!!

This is an awesome song on a rainy day or when youre in a mood to remember your past!

Thats it FOLKS!! BYERS!!!

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.

Credit: 

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 !!!

Confessions of a kpop fan

Before travelling down to the the kpop town I used to be a die-hard addict of old school rock music.  The western music of nowadays is getting exceedingly meaningless and does attach to my soul and emotions.I am nearly maxed out of all the abusive(sometimes meaningless) R-rated rap lyrics.I am not an antifan of rap or anything;in fact I am a fan of the genre but in the current rap scenario most of the songs are just plain swearing!! It is fun for a while to listen to the f- words. But after a while it has become brain tiring and left me completely shallow. I cannot sing these songs in public nor can I understand most of it.

Like anything under the sun there are deviations from this current stereotype. What about “Millionaire” by Travie? Thanks to the lyrics penned by Bruno Mars the lyrics are truly enjoyable-there are swearing here and there still the song is meaningful. I wish all songs that comes make sense like this one! For some time now I am totally stuck on classic seventies western music.
Omg! Forgive me rambling! Coming to point -what gets me hooked up on kpop?
I would say the first thing is the feel and emotions conveyed through the song. Nearly all the kpop artists have mastered the art of seducing our emotions-I think its their innate talent. They talk to you even without needing a language.
When I hear a Korean song – I wouldn’t understand the lyrics but I would still get the feel of the song. Without even trying the chorus and beat gets stuck in my mind! Then I browse and find the English lyrics of the song which pulls me even closer to the song.


Another diamond of kpop is the mv! From flawless choreography to interesting costume concept kpop tries to deliver the best.
The key aspect which makes the kpop stand out is the fan services. I haven’t seen any western artists connect to the fans as much as the Korean artists do. The variety shows the stars so not only brings them fame but also ties up better relationship with the fans.
The kpop artists have pained and strained for years to debut. They have not sprouted just like a mushroom in rain rather have been nourished by years of training.

After the idols do become popular celebrities their schedule gets packed up and they seldom get time for their personal stuffs. They sacrifice nearly every aspect of normal life.these kind of sacrifices and dedication wins the sentiments of the fans.
The next big thing of kpop is the social networking. Most of the idols are active in social networking sites like Twitter, weibo etc and keeps the fans updated. This plus all the fan clubs, fanbases and blogs like ours driving the hallyu wave ,it is hitting the world faster than the tsunami! Dont you agree?

K Drama Kisses Part 3 – Kisses that ‘stoned’ girls

 

Now! Now! We are totally against drugs. The girls here are stoned not by the “entertainment drug” but by the “love drug”. The are so mesmerized and taken back that they show no reaction whatsoever to the kiss. The just stare widely and blankly!!

Heartstrings- Concert Kiss:

Who thought that Lee Sin kissed Lee Gyoo-wo at his public concert?!! Actually I did *giggles* But obviously Gyoo-Wo did not! She is totally surprised and does not know how to react. So she decides not to react at all! LOL. It was like Lee Sin was practising kissing on a ceramic doll! <She does look like a doll> Watch out dear his fans become your anti-fans after this!!

Playful Kiss- The First One:

How not to let a girl get over a crush on you?? Simple -Grab her; Kiss her;Leave her stoned. This is what our genius did to cutie pie Oh Ha Ni! This girl was “Happy , confused and surprised” and how can she show all this three reactions? So her system’s output went haywire and returned a “BLANK FACE” keke

Love Rain- “Fountain kiss”

This has got to be the longest stoned kiss I have ever seen. Yoon Na does not even move her hair while Jang Keun Seuk literally eats her lips. Now we know why he is the perfect playboy. Unlike the other kisses(Where there was absolutely no warning!) JKS does warn her saying she could back off(But Can she??).

K-Fever spreads in France with the help of Jang Keun Suk

Jang Keun Suk is a famous K star who is known for his professional acting skills! He is titled ‘Asia Prince’ which is not just for ornamental purposes. His fame in Japan and China is quite overwhelming and thus his Asian Prince title is more than JUST A  TITLE!

Well what is more amusing is that Jang Keun Suk’s fame has spread as far as Europe and maybe even beyond. It is quite common for K Pop idol groups to be well known in the western countries because of their periodic concerts. Many idol groups like SNSD, Wonder girls and more have officially debuted in American and European countries and released albums. So it is not surprising if they are well received in the western entertainment industry and among  non-asian fans.

But Jang Keun Suk is someone who has not debuted in western countries and has not carried out any world tours or shows/concerts. He is not a full time musician and has recently released one full length album and a mini album in collaboration with Big Brother Kurt. So Sukkie is not the ideal Idol boy band group member. He is more of an actor than of a musician!

So it was a major surprise on seeing him receiving a warm and exuberant welcome at the airport when he entered Paris last monday.

Sukkie embarked on an unannounced visit and just tweeted suddenly that he was on his way to Paris! Viola!! But many fans eagerly gathered at Charles de Gaulle Airport to welcome him. Airport authorities were not informed that a little fireball from Korea was arriving *sadly airport officials dont follow him in twitter teehee* and so was unprepared to assist him and so there was a slight hassle.

But Sukkie was amazed by this gathering and so were many others! Asia Prince Jang Keun Suk has reached this high level of recognition with his dramas and as an actor. I cant imagine how popular he will become once he debuts officially!

And the fawning attention by Eels did not stop at the airport. The Eels kept following him around to Hotel, Shopping Malls, Tourist spots and more to get autographs and photos which Sukkie gave willingly!

Truthfully Sukkie has made his French fans to fall in love with him more and I wonder if this swooning effect is just a stepping stone for his securing the ‘World Prince’ title soon!

Here are some shots of Sukkie on his way to France, at the Paris Airport, with Fans in the streets and shops of Paris!

There are many more photos but I have selected those which he personally uploaded in his twitter!

Credit: @AsiaPrince_JKS

Besides as pointed out by Fans at the rate he has been shopping in the past few days in Paris it is clear that European economy needs him. Keep shopping, Sukkie!

K Drama Kisses Part 2 – Unique and Unorthodox!!

Here are some Korean Drama kisses which are unique! I seriously like the concept and the way these kisses were filmed. A breath of fresh air and makes me go awwwwwwwwww due to their overflowing cuteness!

Caressing Kiss from ‘The Princess Man’

First up is a special Kiss scene from ‘The Princess Man’ What I love here is the sweet chemistry between the leads. Though it is a historical drama it still made me feel that their kiss was that of a normal modern couple. Park Shi Hoo slowly kisses Moon Chae Won’s forehead and then slowly moves over to the eyes,cheek and then to the lips as he lovingly wipes the soot from her face . Instead of going for the classic smooshing of lips and then jumping back K drama Kiss these two did a very good job of being NORMAL!

I really loved their tandem and just like any ordinary pair they don’t stop with just one kiss. After Moon Chae Won confesses about bearing any heart ache for him, he slowly moves in for the next kiss. This kiss may seem passionate but in my eyes it is sweet and quite possible in everyday life ^_^

Here is the video,

Cr: 

Foam Kiss from ‘Secret Garden’

Anyone who has watched Secret Garden and been swamped by Hyun Bin and Ji Won’s chemistry will never forget THE KISS! A cute scenario where Hyun Bin keeps nagging Ha Ji Won as she relaxes while having coffee. Then when Ha Ji Won innocently has some coffee cream/foam on her lips he swoops in to clean up that foam from her lips! Apparently he does that cos he doesn’t have tissues..heehee best excuse ever man!

A unique scenario indeed!

LOL!! Many K fans would have been foaming in mouth due to jealousy! LOL!

Cr: 

Candy Kiss from ‘Iris’

Omg!! This is the most Surprising Kiss of all!! Yep Foam Kiss was different and surprising too but this one just blew my mind..

Lee Byung Hyun’s tutorial on how to pacify your angry girlfriend :

#1 Walk over sexily

#2 Grab her and move in for a kiss.

#3 And as you are kissing just pass over the candy you are eating into your girlfriend’s mouth.

#4 While the girlfriend is mighty surprised give a cheeky grin like a kindergarten kiddo!

Result: Girlfriend forgets her anger and smiles dorkily in love!

Dang! Kim Tae Hee is quite lucky indeed!

A kiss which made me squeal!!

Enjoy the candy kiss and the BTS!

Cr:

Bus Kiss from ‘Dream High’

Many K drama kisses always result in either the girl opening her eyes widely or the girl standing similar to a statue. But Dream High’s Bus Kiss gave a valid reason for absence of action on both sides with the simple excuse of a interfering automobile. As far as Farewell kisses go I really love this. Suzy runs over to Kim Soo Hyun who is already on board the bus. She bangs on the window and then Kim Soo Hyun gently pulls her for a kiss. Though the Kiss was the standard korean peck on lips (Ok! considering the situation Kim Soo Hyun had no room to make the move! He can just barely kiss her with the bus already en route to airport!) it provided the best ending for the entire series.

I know this may seem unbelievable but I was very much satisfied with the Bus Kiss! It lacked passion but it had class!

The dreamy farewell kiss,

Cr:

Tip-Toe Kiss from ‘Queen In Hyun’s Man’

The last unique kiss for today is Tip-toe kiss from Queen In Hyun’s man. how can a girl kiss her TALL Boyfriend passionately?

Scenario #1 Make your boyfriend sit on a stool!

Scenario #2 Stand on a stool to reach the height!

Scenario #3 Go for the Tip-toe kiss like Yoon In Na!

She stood up on the ground in tip toe and tried to reach Ji Hyun Woo but unfortunately he was too tall even then! So she took matters into her hand and stood on tiptoes ON HIS FEET and continued the kiss. And Ji Hyun Woo slowly rocked both of them  as he kissed like he was slow dancing with her was just epic! Seriously an unorthodox kiss scene in K drama!

And to make matters explode even more just after this drama finished airing Ji Hyun Woo proposed to Yoon In Na and both are currently dating! Seriously this makes the kiss more authentic!

Cr:

Fusion of K Dramas and Mangas – Pros and Cons!

What does Manga and K drama have in common? Some out of the world humor and unimaginable scenes? Pretty characters with huge and beautiful eyes? Some funny incidents which is never possible in real life? 

Mangas are basically similar to comic books. But major difference between the comics and mangas are that mangas are more intricate. They don’t look cartoony but seems complex. Comics seem fun but it is mostly just fluffy and simple. If you get bored you can easily pick em up and drop em off too. But mangas are different. Even if they go on and on people are addicted and read it with patience.

Doesn’t this remind us of K Dramas? How many of us have watched dramas into the wee hours of the morning. We keep trying to stop watching but end up seeing just one more episode until our alarm rings for waking up in the morning! heehee

Just imagine if you combine those two addictive drugs. What will you get? 

Yep a Kdrama which is the ultimate addict machine!

Well that’s the theory anyway! But what really happens?

Korean entertainment industry tried using Mangas for making awesome Korean dramas and here are some of their results.

Mary Stayed Out All Night

This is a good example of how wrong a fusion of K drama and Manga can take place!

It was adapted from the manga/manhwa Maeri Neun Uibak Joong. Though it is an adaptation the writer of the drama basically did not follow the manga. Then why did they have to just use the characters from the drama?

MSOAN was packed with stellar cast in the form of Jang Keun Suk, Moon Geun Young and Kim Jae Wook. Yet it failed to create an impact due to misguided script. Too much confusion. They kept changing the writers and the plot was choppy. Only thing I loved here was the OST. But the scenes looked exactly like how you would feel if you read mangas while doing some other tasks too.

MSOAN could have been many things because JKS looked hot with his Indie bad role and Kim Jae Wook nailed that business man role. But due to some script problems it ended up as a bad drama. I think maybe the writers should have stuck to the manga to get a better drama. 

But MSOAN characters represented the manga characters exactly. Especially Jang Keun Suk whose Mu gyul character with his obsession for split-end free hair was perfect. LOL!!

Playful Kiss

Playful Kiss was based on the  Japanese manga Itazura Na Kiss. A simple manga with some fun twists when a gal who is madly in love with popular guy follows him around. They live together and then eventually there is love and marriage. The story was told like a fairy tale and I felt the manga connection there. 

Both leads Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So Min had awesome chemistry. Though Baek Seung Jo was a cold sneering character Kim Hyun Joong could have injected more warmth when he started to fall in love with Oh Ha Ni. But Jung So Min as a cute and irritable Oh Ha Ni was a perfect little package of love. 

The only problem with Playful Kiss was it had some lull moments where the story was a bit dragging. But since they stuck to the manga maybe the pace was right! Playful Kiss FTW!

 

Boys Over Flowers

A success story of fusing K Drama and Manga is Boys Over Flowers. Not only was Hana Yori Dango manga was made into Korean drama but a Japanese drama and a Taiwanese drama was also created with the same. It was a immediate success cos the ladies loved F4. Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum and Kim Joon just swept the viewers off their feet. Ku Hye Sun as Jan Di was just a trifle overzealous. Her cuteness seemed forced at times but she did relatively well. 

Japanese did justice to the manga by keepin the drama short and sweet. But K drama world overwhelmed by its success decided to extend the series which was a bummer. A nice round 20 episodes would have been ideal. BUT theykinda dragged it with 25 episodes with too many unnecessary action.

The best thing which was made a reality from manga to drama was F4 who will forever remain special in K drama addicts’ hearts. 

So BOF did it just right! Fast paced, Awesome OST, Perfect Flower boys and high ratings. The future drama-manga fusions should learn it from BOF!! But a slight word of caution is Don’t over do it! Keep it short and attention capturing instead of long and boring or filled with chaos.

Sexy and Daring Photoshoots – Yoon Eun Hye Vs Lee Hyori!

I was so amazed by some photos which I saw in the internet. They were photoshoots of popular Korean stars. But what amazed me about them was their ‘Bare-skin’ approach. I never knew our cute K stars can also rock the smoky and sultry looks like a pro.

I was especially captivated by two stars. I will post their not so innocent photo shoots which displays that those InNOcent ladies also have a wild streak

Here is Lee Hyori. She is a popular singer and has won many awards and is quite wide known for her sexy style.

Whew!!!! I am completely surprised.. Lee Hyori has got the right body to carry off all those poses! She is a small tornado indeed.

Well Lee Hyori may be a familiar face to K Pop Fans and so as an Idol her photo shoots may seem just another day’s work.

But what if someone you have seen frequently in dramas does those above shots?

WOW!! and that is where Yoon Eun Hye who acts the  inexperienced gal in hit dramas enters the picture..

YEH’s photoshoots..

Well well well!! Am Dazed by YEH!!

She has put her long limbs to good use! Where Hyori was a short tornado, YEH is a dynamo!

My Verdict:

Lee Hyori is quite a good poser but what made me gasp more was YEH! I totally didn’t recognize her when I first saw the pics because in my mind YEH was still the tomboyish looking Go Eun Chan from Coffee Prince who everyone mistook for a boy. And to think that She had all this hiding inside. I knew YEH was a hardworking artist but I also find that she is a beautiful woman through and through.

So my vote goes for YEH who is a chameleon who can change from a sweet tomboy to a H.O.T woman who makes anyone DAZED!!

And I would like to rephrase some things in my mind. For me Hallyu has always been about Sweet romantic dramas and movies filled with love and humor, music which makes your heart melt though you don’t understand the lyrics. But Hallyu is just not that. It can also deliver Sexy with a daring touch which doesn’t make one cringe or look away in disgust.

Just wondering if K Guys also do such daring shoots LOL!! Investigation mode!!!

How to break records all over the World in one week? Learn From Jang Keun Suk!!

Just last week we heard of Jang Keun Suk sweeping Oricon charts and thus subjecting a bout of craziness on his fans!! 

And this week we see more of the craziness for him spreading.

So what was all the fuss about?

Suk entered the world charts. YEAH!!!! *Good news dude!! am glad K Pop oopsie J Pop sung by K guy is recognized by the world*

BUT I was stumped by this.. Suk got #4 in the Global Chart.. What ? 4 O.o ? Here is the best news..

“The United World Chart is updated every week after summing up total single and album sales of singers in each country around the world including America’s Billboard chart, Japan’s Oricon chart, and the United Kingdom’s UK chart, sales record of 36 different countries are accumulated. Korean album sales record, of course, is reflected in the chart.” *Ok so his album seems lik a HIT LOL thats an understatement*

So that was what the fuss was all about?

Nope One more!!

Suk’s personally directed, edited and starred movie Do You Think Living Like This is Good? for his university’s project along with his friends got a special award at the ‘Short Short Film Festival & Asia’ which is the biggest short film festival, which has gained official approval by the Academy Awards.

Getting an award for his College Project? LOL!!! So such a dream situation does exist? Maybe only for Jang Keun Suk.

So lets wrap up this post of JKS’ achievements this week! Uhmmm WAIT? What?

ANDWE!! You mean there is MORE??

So Jang Keun Suk held an online interview of approximately one hour in Weibo (which is like chinese counterpart of Twitter) and fans asked him questions..Ok thats not the point!! The FACT is Suk got a total of 312,578 questions in that hour and 15 mins.

Amazing!!So I cant even imagine getting more than 30 questions!! *remembering those torturous three hours inside the exam hall -_-*

Ok and the funny thing he answered just 56!! Phew 312,578-56 gone down the drain? Nah it helped him create a record..

Previously A Taiwanese band got about 200,000 (approx) questions but Suk broke that record!!
