Breaking News: It’s Halloweeeeeeen!

Halloween-21

Happy Halloween! And TGIF! Let’s celebrate our scary Friday with these two almost weird MVs but with fun, fun music!

The first MV is by Laboum. I believe they are new to kpop. Well, hello there girls and I like this song a lot! The MV is not that creepy but it has that Halloween mood to it – I don’t know how to explain it but the girls have this funky move as if there’s a timer attached to their back. They are not so robotic which I’m perfectly fine and once they start dancing, they became alive! And the sound of unwinding clock a the beginning. It can be a little scary, right? Pfh… forget what I just said. Just watch it *wink*.

The next MV is by WIMP. This one started fine but it became something else after that. The human aka the performers suddenly  “digitized?” – hell, I don’t even know how to say it! Well, if you wanna know, they are virtual duo musicians, Meb and Mek. I love the song though but the MV just creep me out. It’s a dance song so yes, you have my permission to dance!

Well, have a great howloweeeeeen! Ack!

Wednesday Eu-Mak: I’m Back!!!!

tumblr_inline_n63fsxha5m1s8mb88

Hello and happy Wednesday. I’m back! I’m not completely healthy *coughs* but at least I’m back. My recovery has been very slow but I’m slowly crawling out of this hell hole. I hope to be completely healthy by next week. Yeap, it’s a shame that I’m at this age but yet getting sick more frequent than anyone older than me. But this year has been a not so good year. This is a year of a horse. I’m a horse. My BFF has warned me early this year that WE (him and I) must be very careful with what we do. I have been keeping a close eyes on myself and family and two things I noticed – my health and my husband’s business. Oh well, I don’t want to dwell on that but basically, I’m under stress throughout this year. But now that we are 2 months before 2015 come knocking on our door, I secretly wish nothing bad will happened to both of us. I’m always skeptical with horoscope and stuff like that, but I have to admit my BFF is right.

Web

So to celebrate my comeback even though I have been here all the time, this song is just so appropriate and it kinda define me, somewhat of course. This is BeatBurger. Yeah, I don’t know if this is a group or one man show but this song, She So High, is absolutely awesome. Not many people know this but I love techno. This dance-techno song really make me want to just push this chair away and get up and jump as high as I could. There is nothing much to talk about his vocal coz this is a dance-techno song and the singer’s voice is almost digitized and synthesized. The MV featured TVXQ’s Changmin and Go Hye Sun. The vid and the song doesn’t really go together, in my opinion, but hell… I saw couch dance so that works, right? *laughs*

Okay, I suddenly have this urge to look up on BeatBurger and I found out it is a new electro-pop group by SM Entertainment. Eeeeek! SM Entertainment again! BeatBurger is led by SM’s own performance director, Sim Jae Won, and guitarist Joo Sung Min. This group was formed back in 2009 and they slowly recruited other three members. Don’t they look hip? I ususally think electro musician is a one man, DJ show but I guess I’m wrong. So regardless of the MV, I effing love the song! I perks up when I heard it the first time! I had to share that awesome feeling with Erl, my good buddy! She loved it too! She approved it! And you know, the best way to hear this song is to blast it through your headphone! Really! You don’t need any drugs, this song will make you high! *nods* I’m not kidding you! Try it!

It was awesome, right? I have no idea how many times I’ve been listening to this song since last Friday. I was on music hiatus for awhile. I had to give my ears a rest but I am officially back as of today. Because I’m still in recovery, one song should be enough. I don’t want to shock my system again! *laughs* Anywho, enjoy your awesome Wednesday and I look forward to see you again next week!

Wednesday Eu-Mak: Home Sweet Home

home-sweet-home

Dear all, my health is extremely bad. This year is not a good year for my health, that’s for sure and hence, this post is terminally late. I’ve been sick for the past two weeks and when I almost see the light, I fall back to the hell hole. Right now, all I want is to go home. Home to my mother. Home to cuddle in bed with my son. Home to home cooking food is. Home. Don’t you feel like it when you’re not feeling well and all you want to do is to go home? This is the price to pay for being far, far away from family. When I think of home, I thought of Michael Buble’s Home. His voice is so soothing and calm I could burst out into tears right now. Let’s just hear it, shall we?

Wow! Ahhhh mazing, isn’t it? I could never get bored with this song. I could never get bored with his voice. I first heard this song back when I was a graduate student. My friend just wouldn’t stop playing it. She kept playing it over and over and over until I became so addicted I couldn’t get the song out of my head. What got us both addicted was how beautiful Michael sang this song. Lemmmmme go hoooooome! Michael Buble’s Home was incredible.

And what is incredible is that Roy Kim has a new song called Home as well. This new song gives me the almost Buble’s Home feeling. The vid has many thoughtful messages which somehow reminded us that we are only human. And Roy’s voice is just so… This kid is a great ballad/indie singer. I have been following his career since his first album. What a great singer.

Thank you for stopping by. I have lost track of time. I still think today is Tuesday when in fact Thursday is around the corner. This body needs rest. I hope you enjoy Home as much as I do.

Currently Watching: Reset

Reset_(Korean_Drama)-p1

I was not sure what to anticipate when I started Reset. I saw the trailers several times. I knew it has something to do with crime. I knew the drama would be very thrilling. I was hungry for drama that could and would knock me off the chair. I am not easily impressed, lately. Korean dramas have been really lacking whachamacallit… the oooomph. Yes, lacking the oooomph. I was frustrated with the My Secret Hotel. As much as I hesitated to start with another drama that could possibly lead to nowhere, I went in anyway. Mind you that I dislike reading synopsis (yeah, another bad trait of mine) so watching trailers can either help me understand the drama somewhat or not. In Reset case, I don’t get it. But what makes me wanna watch it anyway? Because of Chun Jung Myung.

Chun Jung-Myung, once known as baby-faced actor, is no longer a baby. The man has grown handsomely. I’ve only seen him in What’s Up, Fox? as an immature world traveler who fell in love with his elder sister’s BFF. Yeah, he looked pretty young then since it was a 2006 drama. Fast forward 8 years later, the main grow up pretty well. His coldness and boldness as prosecutor Cha Woo Jin is quite impressive. I should say he’s pretty darn good actor for able to make me believe he’s a new person in Reset. And I like that he wears a tiny smirk on his face! I find it cute! Back to Reset, this OCN production drama is only 10 episodes long. Well, we all know OCN dramas are quite short but the quality of each drama is pretty splendid. Reset is spectacular and the first episode was aaaaaahmazing! So far, 8 episodes have aired and we are 2 episodes to go. After episode 7 though, I was a little confused and so is Bel, my drama sidekick. This drama is quite tricky to begin with. You really have to pay a lot of attention.

The story started with Cha Woo Jin himself. He’s an impressive prosecutor and is able to get victim’s confessions, and perhaps to hear the truth, just like that! His secret to success? His ability to hypnotize at a clicking of his pen! Yeap, he love to click his pen. Normally, it would drive me crazy but it works in his line of work. One night, as he accompanied his drunken colleague for a fresh air, they stumbled on a group of troubled teens in the dark walkway. One of the girl ninja attacked them. She is Eun Bi. Woo Jin was stunned as she resembled his dead girlfriend. And somewhat, his twisted fate with Eun Bi didn’t stop there. The next day, she was caught for a murder she claimed she knew nothing of. Yes, this high school kid was found guilty and did not has an alibi to prove it. Her case was taken by his crook colleague. Eun Bi begged for help and to make sure she truly is innocent, he hypnotized her. Sure enough, she was blamed for the whole shebang. He took her case and was able to clear her name out. But since she’s a minor and may possibly targeted, he sent her back to her home but only to realize she’s unwanted by her family. His assistant, who happened to live next door to his apartment, took Eun Bi in. While protecting her, Woo Jin is tested by a case that could answer the reason his dead girlfriend was abused (possibly raped) and suicide. But he is facing many road blocks at the moment… It’s quite scary to be honest.

I’m in the middle of watching episode 8 and I’m thinking out loud *rubbing chin* will the murder case get solved in the next two episodes? Will there be a sequel? Truthfully, I do not see how this show can be wrapped up in the next two episodes. I am skeptical but then again, OCN is known for short dramas. I just don’t want to hear a sequel and ends Reset with a major cliffhanger. So far, I don’t hear any rumor so I think we are good. I’m still skeptical and curious, and I really want to know the ending. The dark mood is really awesome and it set a thrilling yet chilly tone, kinda reminded me of Vampire Prosecutor, TEN and God’s QuizReset is awesome like that too. You should watch.

 

Breaking News: Loading ERROR

085797

Yes, I know I’m days late but for those who haven’t seen or heard VIXX’s latest single, Error, you may have to check them out. Like right now! NOW! The song is absolutely ahhhhmazing! I cannot believe what I was hearing earlier today. I already know how awesome these kids are. Their previous albums and singles are already crazy awesome. I feel that their songs are the best among the newest kpop groups from their generations. And with Error, they switched gear, up their games and elevated themselves to  be the greatest group around! And I can’t help but to say this, they basically beat their old selves!

Another thing, check out their vocals! How awesome are their vocals!!! My jaw was on the floor  not once, but twice (coz I heard it twice) *winks*! The music gives me that 90’s pop rock music vibe for some reason. I don’t know, maybe it is just me and it is not a bad thing actually. But don’t worry coz I still loooooove it! It’s kpop and they make it better than ever! I’m not too crazy over the MV. I’m not a big fan of futuristic robotic and I do not like to follow the story line. Yeah, it’s just me… *shrug* But I noticed a lotta Hongbin and Leo!!! Where is the love for other members? *tsk tsk tsk* The make up is incredible. The choreo seems impressive, every group has their own signature move and so does VIXX.

I don’t typically like to listen to many kpop groups – I am quite reserved to few groups but adding VIXX into my collections early this year was the best thing I did for myself! Please check out Error! The song is great! The boys are great! Their performance are great! VIXX comeback is the  bomb!

Wednesday Eu-Mak: The New Beginning for MBLAQ

MBLAQ

Happy Wednesday, yeoreobun! If you are a huge MBLAQ A+ fans like me, today is the day to celebrate their 5th year anniversary as a group. Unfortunately, three nights ago we were shocked by the news of Thunder and Joon decided not to renew their contract with JTune, which pretty much sums up to leaving the group. All fans were devastated by the news, including myself. But as a mature fan, I get it. I really do. I know G.O was upset by this whole thing he even tweeted his frustration twice on the same hour! I don’t blame him. So far, he is the most vocal member of all five. I wish I could give him a hug… I’m sorry I’m too far from you, G.O-ssi tsk tsk tsk

Anyway, let’s not cry to much. It will be a new beginning for all five boys. SeungHo, G.O and Mir will remain trio for now. I heard a rumor that JTune will find a replacement to fill in the space. But what do I know? It’s just a rumor. No one can replace Joon and Thunder to be honest *shrug*. Joon decided not to renew his contract with JTune and he is slowly shifting his career path to acting. I heard he’s pretty awesome actor! I’m actually excited for his future. He got the looks and really, if he thinks this is the best path for him and his retirement account, why not, right? Thunder also decided not to renew his contract. However, I don’t hear anything from him or what plan does he have in his pipeline. Come to think about it, who knows he might continue with MBLAQ, right?

So to celebrate their success for the past 5 years together as they will forever be my true fabulous MBLAQ boys, let’s listen to some of their fabulous songs!

The first one is taken from their Japanese album and it is called Baby U. I just love watching this fan made clip because I can see the happiness on their faces while performing in front of thousands of A+!

How was that song? Awesome, right? The next MV is called No Love. This official clip showcasing the beauty of the boys. I just can’t even begin how great they are… Don’t even let me start talking coz I am afraid I won’t be able to stop! Just enjoy it!

The next song is called White Forever! I know it is not Christmas time but I can’t help but sharing this MV with all of you. Again, you can see behind the scene with them and how they all had fun entertaining each other. *sigh* I missed them already!

The final song for this post is called This is War. I like this version coz they freshen up this song a bit and make it very rock-ish! I so dig it! And look at them! LOOK AT HOW HAPPY THEY WERE! And I almost wanna say I love this version more than the original!

My MBLAQ BFF Michele and I are pretty upset and worry what will happen to the group. We support all of them but more so for G.O. Our heart aches for him. We have been very quiet lately, still in shock. But in lights of their 5th anniversary, let’s wish them all well in their future endeavor. To end this post, let’s watch the group performs Rain’s Hip Song. Squeeeeeeee!

 

 

Currently Watching: Suikyuu Yankees

SuikyuuYankees_zps7603a3b9

Yes, I’m back with another Jdrama! I’m starting to lean towards jdrama more and more lately. Thanks Bel for plexing this drama for me. And I must say, what a great drama Suikyuu Yankees is. I don’t want to sound too pervy even though I am one *laughs*, I must say it is refreshing to watch half naked boys fighting healthily to prove that they can do whatever they put their mind into. This drama supposedly to inspire people that you can do and excel in it if you put your mind into it.

HNVyI

The reason I said half naked boys is that the story is about two water polo teams trying to prove they are simply the best! Naoya just recently moved to Karo High, a once famous school for everything but now is the lowest tier in the town. Saoru is currently the famous school in town with their water polo team to be the best of the best. Naoyo started to recruit some kids to be in the team. It took him 6 episodes to convince the kids and one of them is Ryuuji. He was the best water polo player in Suiran High but left the school after losing his ace position to Tsuyoshi. So the next four episodes to come, I expect this show to be full of training action on Naoya’s team and how they regroup to be the best in town! I also expect to see some tiny romance between the characters (Nagisa and Naoya and Nagisa and Ryuuji) but I don’t put that much hope. The goal of Suikyuu Yankees is to prove themselves that they can win the game!

tumblr_nbh0hrqHGF1qc9j6yo6_1280

Suikyuu Yankees is a short 10 episode drama with each episode is 35 minutes long. I don’t expect this drama to wow me as long as it is entertaining. And so far it is! I look forward to the ending! I hope they clear up the misunderstanding, the so-called love triangle, the dignity for Kasu High and get their pride again. By the way, for all those you crazy boys out there, I am a little worried. Please ladies, hold yourself together! *wink* And yes, this drama is silly but worth watching!
