background

Well, 2008, it was a great year. I don’t even need to name all the big things that happened, but I have to give you credit—it was a great year for American AND Korean music. I graduated this year, went to prom, and really and completely immersed myself in Korean culture.

I came to know so many Korean artist this year, that I never liked before like, Lee Hyori, DBSK, SHINee, Wheesung, and I’ve definately started to like Big Bang more.

2009, all I have to say is that you have some BIG shoes to fill!

Anyway, gotta go watch the ball drop! HAVE A GREAT NEW YEAR!!

Check out this crazy, awesome video by mmixes of all the greatest songs in kpop this year (I’m sure you know I love the part with Rain and SHINee, “I gotta be a bad boy, I gotta be a bad boy… Replay, Replay, Replay!”) And Lee Hyori’s, “OK!” is so cute too! ENJOY!!

Wow. Ok. So I didn’t think that a drama could get any better than, “My Name Is Kim Sam Soon”, but it did!

So I just finished “First Shop of Coffee Prince” with Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun Hye (also, Chae Jung Ahn and the greatest husband ever, Lee Sung Gyun), and it was really good. I mean, there were a couple times I must admit when I was like, “Ok…lets just get to the scenes with Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun Hye (though I never fast forwarded it)!

Anyway, I really loved this drama—the chemistry between GY and YEH was amazing; it reminded me of KSS and Hyunbin’s character. The only thing I can complain about is Han Yoo Joo—I showed this character no mercy. I’m not sure if they wanted us to hate her, but I sure did! Especially, right before she proposed to Hang-Sung, and said, if she wanted to cheat “stray away” from him, then she just would… what a bitch! To treat such a great guy like shit!

But what most surprised me about this drama, is that it actually got some tears out of me! I mean, I’ve always had problems watching people on TV/in movies cry (not in person)—especially if they get emotional, I’ll start crying with you! This scene below, is the one of two scenes that had me crying (not blubbering, just tears). To see GY and YEH put so much into it—their emotions felt so real.

Anyway, this is one hell of a drama, GY is so cute, makes me love him even more, and YEH is adorable. I give it 5 star fruit: 5-starfruit

(CAUTION: Coffee Prince Spoilers!)

Notice, I don’t mean the actress Chae Jung Ahn, but in fact her Coffee Prince character, Han Yoo Joo.

This bitch chick cheated on her boyfriend with some crusty old man-whore named DK, after she was in a relationship for 9 years with the most amazing husband-material and cutest behaviored man ever, Choi Han Sung. Also, she’s datin g Han Sung but messing with the head of his cousin who also likes her, Choi Han Kyul.

Then, after he pussy-whippedly stupidly took her back, this hoeish goes and threatens to leave him again after he just got a simple, little crush on the just-as-adorable Ko Eun Chan. Well, of course, he takes her back after she fools him into thinking she went to New York, and the woman gets preggers (I STILL think it was DK’s!), and then she’s out partying and drinking alcohol! Has she ever heard of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome?! I know it was her fault she lost the baby!

And then, after all that she has done to Han Sung, she then tells him that if she wants to cheat on him, then she just will—then she proposes!

Need I say more?

Congradulations Han Yoo Joo, you’ve just made my shit list!


Recently, Rain just launched his new clothing line, “Six to Five”.

Now although I’m curious about the name—and I’m not just saying this—but I actually like the clothing. If the rest of the clothes are like what Lee Hyori is wearing (it wasn’t said whether all the following stars were wearing his brand or not), then I’m DEFINATELY going to be checking yesstyle.com for his brand! It’s kind of tomboy-sexy-chic-downtown-hipster-vintage cool in my opinion—I love it!

What do you think about Rain’s new clothing line—cool, lame or *yawn*?

I was listening to the one song I like by Kim Jong Kook, “Today More Than Yesterday(?)” (어제보다 오늘 더) off his latest album “Here I Am”,  and even though I like the song, I couldn’t but help to laugh at his bug-like voice!

Now it’s a nice voice and all, but it’s a bit whiney, no? The way he hits those high notes, for a man is just not natural!!

And what makes it even more hilarious is how incredibly muscular and brawny he is with such a bitchy unique voice!

Check out the song:

So I watched this Korean movie called, “No Regret” (후회하지 않아), and it was freaking AWESOME.

I can’t lie to you, the thing that attracted me to the movie in the first place was the fact there was 2 hot guys on the advertising poster for it. Here is the synopsis fromt he IMDB.com:

Sumin is an orphan trying to balance work in a factory with study at art college and an evening job. One night a rich young businessman tries to proposition him during one of his driving jobs. They meet again the next day: it is during a round of redundancy cuts at the factory where Sumin refuses an attempt by a man (who is in fact the boss’ son Jaemin) to save his job. Eventually Sumin is seduced into working as a male prostitute in an upmarket boy-brothel as Jaemin’s obsession with him grows, leaving Jaemin helpless in the face of his overwhelming desire. This is a film of bold sexuality, where unexpected passion, desire and misunderstandings wreak havoc of an operatic intensity.

Especially within the last 20 minutes of the movie, it had me on edge the entire time–this isn’t your typical, “boy meets boy” or “man falls in love with prostitute” story; I literally could not relax or take a deep breath until the credits started to come down.

And just to proove how sexy the lead star, Younghoon Lee is, here is some pics of him (“No Regret” was his first movie):

I’ve started drinking soda again.

And you can see it all over my face.
