xiahWho knew? Who knew our little Xiah had such a delectable derrier?

When I found out a few weeks ago that Junsu had a badonkadonk, I HAD to investigate! And lucky enough for me and all you Junsu lovers out there, I’ve got the pictures for proof! I couldn’t believe THIS was attached to him!

Though I question if this is indeed a problem or perhaps Junsu just has a fat ass.

I hope its the latter, what about you?

Though I fear that the black one AND the one of him wearing those sexy white pants are shopped, I still have faith!

But even though Junsu’s definitely has some eye-pleasing hindquarters he can’t hold a candle to Rain’s big, luscious booty.

soulmate1CAUTION: SOULMATE SPOILERS

For some time I’ve been putting off my review of this drama because I wanted to do it thoroughly…well here it is! I actually finished it LAST Sunday (not yesterday). Unfortunately, unlike my Boys Over Flowers wrap-up, I don’t have many Soulmate screencaps (in fact, the only screencaps I have are of Shin Dong Wook and are all in the same scene…) but here goes anyway!

In my lifetime (and I consider my life to have started 3 years ago when I got into Korean stuffs) I have watched the following dramas in full: Full House, Coffee Prince, Kim Sam Soon, Boys Over Flowers and I have never watched one so fast and enjoyed every single episode as well as characters and soundtrack. Now mind you, of course every drama must have it overly-eccentric characters and this one is no exception, but it’s not to the point of being annoying…its quite comical.

shin-dong-wookOf course one of the main reasons why I like this drama is because of all the eye candy of course…and SHIRTLESS eye candy, might I add but there weren’t any story-less, unnecessary, empty characters *cough* Woo bin *cough* in this drama, which made me happy.

Lol the only character that semi-bothered me was Sa Kang’s character as Hong Yu-jin…the girl spoke in honorifics the entire series! And by honorifics I mean like, “안녕하십니까” vs. “안녕하세요” to the guy who she’s been dating and is try to get married to…I couldn’t believe it! She even answered the phone, “여보십시오” vs. “여보세요”! And the way her voice was always at that robotic, high pitch.

hyjOne of the main reason’s that made me wish and wish that Dong Wook and Su-gyeong would get together is because Su-gyeong seemed so much more real then Yu-jin. Yu-jin reminded me very much of a Stepford wife the way she would just do exactly what Dong Wook told her and wore her clothes in that very 1950’s style. She was definitely one to succomb to a mans wishes, whatever his wishes.soulmate12

Su-gyeong, like the Sam Soon character from “My Name is Kim Sam Soon” I feel embodies everything a women is. She’s nto always smiling, she doesn’t know how to cook everything, she doesn’t wear heels and dresses everyday, when shes angry she tells you, she doesnt cry one tear at a time—mascara streaks black down her face…Su0gyeong was everything Yu-jin wasn’t and even though they were friends, Dong Wook saw thats what drew him to her. He even said that he could feel her pain…and he hurt more.

soulmate02ft91I also enjoyed the Jang Min-ae (2nd woman from the right) character—who is literally a lookalike for Han Ji-hye—she was such a pimp! And she didn’t hide it from any of the guys she messed with! Yes, she was a homewrecker…but the girl gave pretty dead-on dating advice (though sometimes not in the best interest of his cousin Yu-jin). Since she was a player herself, no guy could trick her since she practically wrote the book! I especially loved her sexyness and willingness to basically say, “Yeah I slept with him on the first night…so?”** I also love how everytime she was going to hit on a guy the song, coicidently titled, “This is Not a Love Song” started to play…it was so sultry! lol

I loved her and Ryo-hei together (far left man)—he seemed to tolerate with her promisctuiy and still loved her anyway…and he never bitched about it. He just waited for her to come to him and in the end…she did.

shin-dong-wook-2One thing that struck me in this drama was their use of their real names…all the characters in the show (excluding Yu-jin) used their real names…I didn’t know they did that in Korea…interesting.

I took that  screencap of Shin Dong Wook becuase he was just so damn cute!

shin-dong-wook-3Anyway, the drama was really awesome and the ending is especially good. The whole thing seems to fly by quickly and towards the end you don’t want it to finish!

If you’re not a believer in fate, this drama makes you want to with a twist of an ending you wouldn’t expect…ahh, it’s been a week and I’m still reveling! …I’m also STILL listening to the soundtrack which is fricking awesome! Get it HERE.

Soulmate was awesome and gets a well-deserved 5 starfruit: 5-starfruit1

You can check out Soulmate dramafever or DL it at Aja-aja! Check out this cool fanmade MV on the drama by lespoiretreve.

**I’m not encouraging promiscuity, kids!


sspx0133…and I must say I am so beat! I must’ve walked 12+ miles yesterday!

Finally I feel as though the weather in NY is just what it should be…it was somewhere in the late 60’s maybe even early 70’s!

All the tourists were out today, even kids you could tell were on field trips and stuff. I have never heard so many languages then I did yesterday! A few I could identify: Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Russian and French…then there were some others that I could tell by the people were European languages.

Oh man…the European men out that day…it killed me! They were so hot and tan and blonde and yummy… 😛 oh man, the memories!

I went to Chinatown (bubbly tea–YUM!) also paid TWO visits to Koreatown (went and then came back) for the first time in months…probably haven’t been there since December. Lots of hotties…I actually almost walked into a mailbox! And I was able to get some ddeok boki for the first time in probably a year and half!

My cousin and I also went into some department store that was having a flower showcase as well as a lot of furniture stores…for some reason I just enjoy looking at it! And this one place where as you can see I took a gillion pictures was awesome…it was so chic, I can only hope that one day I can decorate my apartment as awesome as these samples were!

Anyways, check out the pictures from my day:

So everyone, as I mentioned before, I made a scholarship on my favorite K-pop star and just sexiest guy ever in general Rain and I said I’d post it here.

Make sure to rate and comment it for me! And don’t forget to watch it in HD! This took forever to make!!

So I was on a site called CAPSLOCK something or the other and I can’t tell if they hate or like DBSK but I found these pictures and they are hilarious.

Something I already knew: costumes worn by Korean artists in concerts are absolutely atrocious! And here is a prime example.

yoochun1

Our dear Yoochun…quite the religious pup isn’t he? He is so inspiring…he helped me discover Jesus…

yoochuns-chestAnd the following picture…I’m not going to lie, I literally sat and watched this picture for a STRAIGHT five minutes, then I stopped for a little bit and sat there and watched it over and over and over etc… again.

As you can tell in the (.gif) picture, the Dong Bang boys are jumping up and down at their concerts and well, you know gravity…as they are jumping up and down, so are their… *ahem*. Anyway, as you can see, Jaejoong covers his once he realizes but Yunho just lets his go.

I sat and watched it go up and down and up and down…Yunho, *ahem*, I must say…teehee…you are quite…endowed for being, you know…um…not aroused. Okay…so maybe I am a pervert! But you know what, who cares?! You’re about to stare at this pic for the next five minutes too! And most of you ladies will probably save it to your computer like me!

Damn it I did it again…stared at this picture for too damn long!

changmin-hotI was actually very saddened to find out that this picture was shopped =:::( lol. Changmin isn’t really my favorite…but with a body like that he couldve been! lol I’m such a ditz, when people said it was shopped I though they meant the hand but when I look more closely, the entire head is shopped! lol

jaejoongOkay, this picture is funny because…um…because I saw…ok. There is nothing funny about it, I saw it and was like HOT DAMN! and saved it to my computer. Jaejae is look GOOOOOODDDD.

Feel free to interpret that as “God” as well haha.

changmin-thrustingGo Changmin! Go Changmin! It’s your birthday! It’s your birthday!

I like this because he is thrusting so much harder then the rest! lol Xiah isn’t even on beat at all. And my boy Yunho is looking good on the right lol. They all look good but I really like the fitting white jeans on guys (even though I’ve only seen it on Kpop stars)…I’ve recenlt find it quite sexy because with the pants you can really see their figure.

Well anyways, I hope you had a good laugh like I did!

soulmate…Which is so weird, because it usually takes me months to start another drama! Considering I just finished Boys Over Flowers like 2 days ago, it’s a bit fast for me to be jumping back on the drama boat.

Well, anyways, I’ve now started the drama “Soulmate” which I heard alot of postitive things about and I have alot of positive things to say about it!

The drama is surprisingly and refreshingly sexy! None of that childish, “just press our lips together” crap, this is the real deal! And the sound track is to die for, which I already downloaded! And its mostly composed of English songs, but they really fit the plot. This drama is quite hilarious as well, as I’ve found myself literally LOLing to it! It’s very short, only 12 episodes (I’m up to 7), and I almost feel like I ALREADY wish it was longer!

Here’s the dramafever synopsis:

A combination of Friends and Sex in the City, this refreshing, witty and sexy sitcom is our current favorite. We follow six charismatic characters through blind dates, breakups and hookups in 12 enjoyable chapters which make fun of the trials and tribulations of being single and dating in Seoul today. Because of its story line, actors and music, the title did not enjoy massive popularity in Korea – we don’t think anyone over 40 years old watched it – but amongst the young people it grew one of the strongest cult followings to this date.

You can check out Soulmate at the above link to drama fever or download the series like I did at Aja-aja. And ladies, FYI, there is some SERIOUS eye candy in this drama! Especially the delicious Shin Dong Wook! Lots of scenes of the guys in the gym working out…shirtless!

Check this one out!

gjp6CAUTION: BOYS OVER FLOWERS SPOLIERS

Get comfy people—this is going to be a long one! …And I’ve got lots ‘o screencaps too!

So I finished this drama in about a week, the bulk of my watching haven been since saturday till last night where I refused to go to sleep till I finished the drama, which was a little after 4am!

Though I still stand by what I said in my previous entry, I have to agree with some of the commentors on finsihing the drama before my judgement. Why did the show all of a sudden get good at episode 21?! It was almost as though they hired a new director as well as a new screenwriter. The lines weren’t as cheesy, the drama wasn’t as random and everything really flowed together well, I was impressed. I’ve still got some questions, which I know SOMEONE is going to try to answer and make me seem stupid for not “seeing” it in the first place *rolls eyes*, but whatever; I’ll make my final comments and questions about the drama.

bof-girlsSeriously, what was the point of these bitches being in there?

They aren’t that pretty (well at least not for Kim Bum and Kim Joon [except maybe the one of the left]) to me and they didn’t utter one single syllable the entire, what?, 2 episodes they were there. There was absolutely no point to them being there, except maybe as to give a scapegoat for Yi Jung and Woo Bin, I guess to keep the focus more on the Ji-Hoo/Jun-Pyo/Jan-Di love triangle.

bof2This one is kind of “LOLable”, but come on, why does the crazy, creepy, fortune-teller lady have to be black? hahaha The “sexy” (NOT!), New Caledonian natives that the F4 boys seem to be quite acquainted with are white but the fortune teller is black…and from her accent, it seems as though she’s American.

Now from the little research I just did on New Caledonia, it seems that the major ethnicity of people there are Malenisian, which is said to be a present-day for of Papuan people—black people. By having the above ugly girls play the natives, I feel it misrepresents the people of the country, and one of the MAJOR factors in screenwriting (that’s what I’m going to school for) is research—you have to make sure that what you represent in your film is to be as factual as possible. I also didn’t like how in the episodes in New Caledonia the girls above were dressed VERY revealingly in comparison to “virginal” Jan-Di and Ga-Eul. Even when the girls were “clothed”, they were half-naked!

bof3

Poor Kim Joon! lol My boy didn’t have many line in this drama and virtually no place here except as Yi Jung’s partner in crime—also the best fighter amongst the group. To be honest, if F4 was F3, I don’t think it would have made that much of a difference, considering Yi-Jung had his own thing going on with Ga-Eul and his family. Though I WOULD have liked him to have a bigger part, I liked Woo Bin’s attitude, he seemed very chill and his Engrrish was quite funny, “Yo yo yo main, wussup?” I’ll look forward to seeing Kim Joon in other projects in the future.

I was highly impressed with Kim Hyun-Joong’s acting…actually I was impressed he could act at all! Though I was like WTF? around episodes 17-23 where Hyun-Joong barely had any lines at all—the boy just did not speak at all! Problems with his grandfather getting to him…maybe. Uncreative screenwriter…thats my bet. I’m glad Ji-Hoo made up with his gramps though, even though I hated the way Jan-Di literally forced them together…though I’m a bit confused, Ji-Hoo’s grandpa died, right? That’s the reason why he must re-open the clinic?

bof7
This is a screencap from the last episode, I just wanted to point out whoever was in charge of the “costumes” or clothes was pure genius! Ohmahgah…serisouly, I absolutely LOVED the clothes in this drama, even Jan-Di’s sometimes! Jan-Di actually made me want to go out and get a pair of those combat boots she wore, though I didn’t like the white ones, I like the black ones. Look at Woo Bin in that picture, could he look anymore fly? And Ji-hoo also, I always loved his outfits, they reflected his classy demeanor…and a quick little useless sidenote: Hyun-joong was already a 9/10, then when he cut his hair he literally jumped to a 13!

Though I feel, a bunch of young boys dressing is really nice suits everyday is heinously unrealistic, it was nice none the less.

gjp2I loved Goo Jun-Pyo’s suit in this scene…anyway, from when we met her, I liked the Ha Jae Kyung character, even though she tended to force her friendship unwillingly down peoples throat, she means well and you have to remember that. Though I have no idea why you would fall for a girl who has renamed you “Monkey”, Jae-Kyung apparently falls for Jun-pyo, even not-knowing people well—I tell yah, Goo Jun-pyo must be some kind of lover in the bedroom because I can’t understand why so many women would blindly chase him when he treats them like dog shit!

Lee Min-Jeong is one beautiful lady and I can’t deny I developed a little girl-crush on her! lol I’m so happy though with her descision to not marry Jun-pyo (even though we all knew it wouldn’t happen). Like she said herself, she’s a cool ass girl and she went out with dignity.

bof8And now for the greatest scene in the entire series, the pool scene. I was EXTREMELY impressed with how this scene went down and the events leading up to it.

I don’t know about you, but something about Yu-mi really disturbed me. She had that sweet, big eye’s thing going for and she was one sneaky little bitch—which I’m so glad the other F4 boys could easily tell and treated her like she “had a disease”. How she smiled, the fact that she was pretty and the way stole something Jan-di made for Jun-pyo in order to get closer to him reminded me of another villain from another tale—The Little Mermaid. Yu-mi reminded me abhorrently of Ursula the sea witch, who used Ariel’s voice in order to lure in Eric so she could become the new Goddess of the sea, denouncing King Triton from his throne.

In The Little Mermaid, Ursula held onto Eric’s arm firmly the same way Yumi holds onto Jun-pyo’s, and as Eric did when Ursula announced they were going to get married, Jun-pyo holds the same blank stare when Yumi announces they will be leaving for America…just a little tidbit I noticed.

bof41bof51bof61Even though, once the F4 boys started talking about doing things to refresh Jun-pyo’s memory, I knew the final “test” was going to involve a pool, and probably Jan-di throwing herself in or accidentally falling in, the scene was amazing. I wanted to cry during this scene, it was absolutely beautiful. I love how Jan-di didn’t act crazy, didn’t try to drown, she just went to the ledge and just let herself fall freely—I also felt there was another message in there too.

She fell in, grabbed the necklace and just waited. The song made the scene very emotional as Jun-pyo remembered all his times with Jan-di, and in the background you could see Ji-hoo fighting the urge to jump in and save her. Once Jun-pyo realized, he jumped in and I felt so relieved…a great scene, definitely my favorite in the series aswell as out of all the drama’s I’ve watched so far (my other favorite, HERE!)

gjp3All in all, it was an okay drama. Am I glad I watched it? Yes. Do I think it should be the #1 national hit in Korea? …Not so much. Though, those boys are so fine it could be #1 hit or #1 miss and I’d still watch it! I just wish the drama didn’t start getting really good at episode 20! Though I’m sure no one is reading this at this point because it’s so damn long, lol I still have some brief notes as well as questions:

  • Holy shit! Jun-pyo’s mom is one crazy ass bitch! Do not mess with her! Unfortunately, like Jun-pyo and his his sister, I know what it’s like not to want to call your mother, “mother”. They handled themselves really well and I wish them the best in their “futures” lol…FIGHTING!!!
  • I wish the drama was a bit more specific about what happened with Jun-pyo’s dad. So he wakes from the coma, but does society know he’s alive? Is the mother forgiven? The way she caters to her husband makes it seem as though we should be sympathetic to her.
  • Did Ji-Hoo’s grandpa die?
  • I actually really like the soundtrack to this show.
  • Goo Hye Sun’s acting was horrible in the beginning, but like I said, got much better within the last 6 or so episodes.
  • Ga-Eul is a complete idiot for telling that little girl her “boyfriend” Yi-jung was living in Sweden…. I’m sorry honey, but he’s is not your boyfriend if you didn’t know. He doesn’t even have the decency to treat you like a human being, the way he stomps all over your feelings like stairs.
  • So Jan-di’s boss’s father used to work in the household where Ji-hoo’s grandfather held?
  • Hyun-joong’s crying scene went over well.
  • Lol the Grandmother maid from Jun-pyo’s house was Han-gyul’s grandmother in Coffee Prince

Check out my favorite scene:

Originally I would’ve given the show 2 starfruit, but with a pretty good last 5 episodes, I’ll give it 4: 4-starfruits

So, if you haven’t seen it, should you watch this drama? Yes. One friday when you know you have nothing to do the rest of the weekend (every friday I’m sure! …jkjk), take your ass on over to dramafever.com, set up an account and watch it. Or, you can do even better like me and download all the episodes and watch them at Aja-aja…subtitles are on the site as well, just look!

Whew! That was one long rant!

Also, below I took an awesome screencap of the F4 boys which turns out to be a nice desktop screensaver! I was going to put it down there so you can click it, make it bigger and save it to your computer but wordpress is being stupid…so if you like it and want it, then just say so in a comment and I’ll use your given email to send it to you!
