So I just realized after I uploaded my review about Jung Da-bin’s suicide ๐Ÿ˜ฆ That’s so sad. I’m sure the cast was really close and that was a big loss…. I wish Korea would recognize that a great deal of it’s youth struggle with depression. Recognize it and address it, instead of seeing the people who suffer as freaks or that their is something wrong with them.

But ANYWAY. I finished the drama review and had it all edited up an everything. Took me like 14 hours! lol But yeah, I added lots of clips from the drama into it so thats a big reason why its so long. I don’t just talk about the drama but I also talk about relationships between men and women and how authentic this drama was. Kudos to the people who suggested it!

So make sure to go watch the videos, rate comment and subscribe too! And suggest MOAR DRAMAS!!! (*salivates*) I’m getting back into enjoying k-dramas and was even thinking about making a soap opera type-thing for the OTHER CHANNEL.

And now, here are some funny pics of the many faces of Kim Rae Won I forgot to put in the video.

antiqueI had this movie on my computer for the longest time but finally just watched it the other and I think that it was an OK movie.

The trailer for the movie as do the stills suggest plots other than what it was but hey… whatever. This one had a lot of eye candy and thats whats important, right? Joo Ji Hoon was looking super fine and super mature in this compared to Goong (aka the only other thing I’ve seen him in), and Coffee Prince guy looked better here too.

I just think this movie took an odd turn through the middle. It was like a light-hearted cute romantic comedy then all of a sudden it became this drama and then because almost horror movie like, I was like what the hell is going on here? I just felt like the plot was tugging me in several different directions.

Other than that, it wasn’t bad, I’ll give it 3.5 starfruit: 3.5 starfruits

rain11The boy, the man, the legend!

27 years ago today, June 25th, 2009, the stork carried an especially long baby to the doorstep of a welcoming mother and father. They named him Jung Ji-Hoon and watched him grow, while giving him a sister named Hana, to share his childhood with.

From the time he was young, Ji-hoon loved to dance. One day while he was in his home watching television, an American pop star by the name of Michael Jackson had a performance at Madison Square Garden, and as soon as Ji-hoon saw this he realized one thing:

He wanted to be an international pop star.

From then on, Ji-hoon went from agency to agency auditioning and became apart of a short-lived music group named Fan-club. When that group disbanded, Ji-hoon didn’t stop there—he was very determined. He continued to be turned down, claiming his singing ability wasn’t up to par and his looks were on the ugly side—or so he was told. It wasn’t until 2000, he auditioned fora top singer-gone-producer by the name of Parkย  Jin-young that he was finally given a break. Jin-young saw something in Ji-hoon that no one else did and decided to give him a chance.

At such a time that should be greatly celebrated, Ji-hoon had other worries on his mind.ย  Shortly after his singing with JYP Entertainment, his mother died of diabetes that same year. This devistated Ji-hoon, but it also gave him the drive and will to keep moving on, and make his mother in heaven proud of him.

Because of this incident, a dark cloud came over Ji-hoon, but this didn’t hurt his efforts—for he strived to get better and better in acting, dancing and singing—and Jin-young could see this cloud, this sadness… thats when he decided to give Ji-hoon a singing name—Rain.

Since his debut, Rain has released 5 Korean albums, 1 Japanese album, countless endorsements for countries like Korea, Japan, Taiwan, China, Singapore, Malaysia and more; world tours including the USA; he’s appeared in an enormous array of magazines, commercials and the face of internationally known companies; he’s starred in 3 Korean dramas; he has his own clothing line—which is ready to go international online; his own record label and company by the name of J.Tune Entertainment; has starred in 1 Korean movie and 2 American films, Speed Racer and Ninja Assasin for which he will be the lead; and in a country where plastic surgery is as natural as breathing, Rain has managed to bring himself to a place where he is confident about his looks and has not altered one single feature on his body (even his nose, which he’s broken before).

He’s one of the hardest working people in the business and one of the most sucessful and still manages to stay humble, grounded without any media scandals and he doesn’t his money on every last thing he sees. Rain has promised us all, especially his Clouds that he will never plataeu and will always keep getting better. Just like in his song “My Way”, he says:

์ด ์   ๋ชจ ๋‘ listen
๋‚˜ ๋Š” ์–ด ๋ ธ ์„ ์  ์— ๊ตถ ์ฃผ ๋ฆผ ์† ์— ์‚ด ์•˜ ๋„ค

์•„ ๋ชจ ๋‘ ๊ฐ€ ์ง€ ์•„๋…ธ ๋Š” ๊ทธ ๊ธธ ์„

Now everyone, listen.
When I was young, I lived in hunger
Society lost faith in me
I defended myself and I didn’t lose hope
I chased after my dream then someone gave a helping hand
That was my beginning, the song that I wanted to sing
The song I would sing
Towards my dream, my way
The path that no one goes down

Fanmades by me, below a gallery of some of my favorite Rain photos:

I have 250+ Rain pictures on my computer, all of his albums, “Full House” on DVDboth movies that have been released on DVD and 5 posters of Rain… and to be perfect honest with you, I have the same hair color Rain had during his Rainism comeback. Some people may call me loco, but I really do feel like the guy changed my life. Rain is who got me into Kpop, with his song “Sad Tango” (which I later realized was Japanese) and then the cuteness he was in his “I Do” music video—which I watched at least 15 times.

The best I can do for Rain is sit here and brag about him all day (and send him the gift I plan to send him), because I really do feel like I owe it all to him. If it wasn’t for Rain I might be interested in Chinese culture right now or not any asian culture right now… I’d be like every other American teenager. No matter how much anyone wants to make fun of him or me, it doesn’t change how I feel.

So I want to give Rain, my #1 with a bullet, a HUGE Happy 27th Birthday, and many, MANY MORE!!!!

uninvited-movie-poster-1

To be 100% honest with you, the main reason why I wanted to see this movie was because it was a remake of the Korean film, “A Tale of Two Sisters”…but let me just say, that wasn’t what we watched, we watched something else.

Yes, yes, the step-mother was there and the 2 sisters, blah blah blah, but the story began to take another direction towards the end that I didn’t particularly enjoy.

I won’t reveal the ending to you of either story, and for some horribly-choiced reason of the screenwriter, the ending in “The Uninvited” and the ending in “A Tale of Two Sisters” are completely different…though both with a secret that makes you think, “Why didn’t I see it before?”

For all of the people who saw “A Tale”, can I say America butchered it?…well yes, yes I can.

If you’re bored and have nothing to do, go see it, but other than that it gets 3 starfruit: 3-starfruit
