Happy Autumn Day, everyone! Today marks the first day of autumn and I’m excited! Coincidentally, my hub brought me a bowl of pumpkin soup! Isn’t it appropriate for this weather? *giggle* And you know what else is happening here in my area? Pope Francis is here! Yeap, I made it just in time yesterday to watch his arrival live on the net. Unfortunately, I will be watching his parade from far. The city is packed with hooooooooman and so, my office is closed and we are all working from home. And wow, look at the time… I overslept and did not prepare for anything for this post today. *laughs* Can you blame me? I get to sleep in!!! So speaking of introduction to autumn, all the clips for today’s post are live performance of some of my favorite groups! Enjoy!!!

Infinite

FT Island

SNSD – Girl’s Generation

MBLAQ

Wednesday Eu-Mak: Going Live

174Hellooooooooo! I’m officially back! Yes, no more hiatus until….. T______T October! Yeap, I’m constantly on the move these days. And I must say, even though I never complain about it, 2015 has been a very challenging year for my career. But, I will face it all one at a time and with open mind and heart! Hwaiting!

To commemorate my official back even though you’ve seen newer posts recently (I sneaked in a few) *wink*, I decided that today’s post will feature live performance by some of my favorite groups. The songs are their most recent comeback and are performed live. Now we can really see how talented they are and not just lipsynching. Well, perhaps a few of them are still are. I’m gonna let it slide… Too much to think of it at this wee hour. Amuden, let’s hear the songs now!

EXO

SISTAR

B3AST

INFINITE

And MBLAQ… with lots of love and kisses from me!

I hope you enjoy their live performance! I hope to be back next week with a better songs, more toned down and less ga ga on pop! So who will get it? Stay tune! Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day!

Breaking News: Is it May yet?!

Capture

Yeah, I know we just entered March but can we skip April and jump straight to May? Why?I do not like this torture, WoolLim! But yeah, Infinite is making a comeback! The brand new teaser 7 in 1 was released on March 1. The teaser is super awesome and sophisticated, the boys looking mighty fine, fine, fine and the music.. Oy, don’t get me start with the music. It’s very e-meaty, which means the song is heavily digitize but I love that it has this mix of electro-ballad while maintaining their typical music style. Oh hell… I don’t know if I can wait for two months. This teaser of a minute and 21 seconds long is enough to send me to heaven!

Hello, Sunshine!

sunshine-award

Wow! Apparently I’m someone’s Sunshine!!! Gomawoyo to Sue, SnowGirl and Kakashi for nominating me for this award. To be honest, I have no clue what Sunshine Award is about. I did some digging into this award and thanks to Sue, Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers who are positive, inspiring and spread a little sunshine with their blogs.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will do my best to inspire people with my sometimes crazy posts!

Okay, so let’s get started!

The first set of questions came from Sue aka Mama Fangirl. We met on Twitter and Sue are extremely kpoppers! I love kpop fangirls and I’m so happy to get to know her. One of these days, I shall make time and meet her since she’s US-based. I must meet her!

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Currently, I’ve been pestering my hub to move us to Taiwan. Why Taiwan? Well, it is closer to the countries I work in and it makes life easier for me. My husband’s side of family is from there and two of his sisters are there as well. So when I do travel, I have family to care for my precious son. Also, it helps that Seoul is closer. I can travel there easily for concert! Let’s hope my scheme works!

What was the best concert, gig, performance, or festival you’ve ever been to?

I don’t go to concert often but the recent Infinite concert that was held in my state was impressive to me. I attended the concert with kpopkolorado and we had fun at the concert.

What is your go-to karaoke/noraebang song (or your hairbrush-mic in the mirror song if you’re shy)?

Hah! At this moment, the go-to song is Pretty Girl by MBLAQ. My son loves this song so much we sing the chorus part all the time, whether in the car or in the shower. It’s pretty addictive, I must say… Give it a hear ^^.

Choose one: Would you want to be a rock star or a movie star?

I rather be a movie star. I came from entertainment family – kinda sorta. I’m exposed to everything acting so I’m cool with being an actress. I think life as a rock star is pretty hard and I have no voice for it. The minute I open my mouth, I’m sure people will start pick themselves up and run as fast as they can. Yeap, I’m terrible.

If money or time was not a concern, what one thing would you love to try or learn how to do?

I want to run my own bed and breakfast. An organic kind with cows in the yard (I love cows) and grow my own veggies and fruits. Do I sound too old? Hehehe.

Who was your very first celebrity crush?

c2ac

I was 8 or 9 years old, I couldn’t remember but Steve Ma aka Ma Jing Tao, was my first crush. He is a Taiwanese actor and I fell in love in Green Green Grass by the Rive. It’s an old Taiwanese drama, back in early 1992 or 1993. Oh em geeeeee, he was dashing! I wanted to watch everything he was in. Unfortunately back then, it was hard to watch dramas. I never get to watch much of his dramas but I’ve seen a few of his. He is a good actor. I hope to see him again one day .

The next set of questions came from Snow Girl. I get to know her through blogging and she recently dip her toes into Twitter land. I’m sure she’s loving the experience. I have never met Snow Girl but when I found out she is based in India, I think I might take my time to meet her next year since I’ll be in the country for work. I hope this dream will come true!

What is your favourite thing to do when you are not watching dramas?

tumblr_m6k4imDA9S1rxbrw3o1_500

Sleep. I love to catch on my beauty sleep. And cuddle with my son.

Which is your all time favourite movie in the following categories: [1] Thriller [2] Romance [3] Comedy.

Wow, this is tough. I don’t watch movie often enough so my choices are probably too old for some. For Thriller, I would say the saga of Jason Bourne. The action was extremely juicy, I can’t get enough of it. For Romance, my choices goes to Runaway Bride. The reason why I love it? She can’t decide on which egg style she like! Oh em… She’s just like me! And for comedy, wow… this is tough but I would go with Miss Congeniality! You can’t beat that, can you?

Your favourite book.

Wow! I have read too many books but my favorite one is Kane & Abel by Jeffrey Archer. I haven’t read it in a while but I would love to get my  hand on that book again! It’s my absolute favorite!

Your go-to drama.

It used to be Playful Kiss but I’m starting to grow out of it (not because of Kim Hyun Joong) and now it is replaced by Goong.

In your opinion, the best drama couple is………..

Secret-Garden-Korean-Drama-image-secret-garden-korean-drama-36389729-500-338

I keep going back and forth on this one but I’ve decided that Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won is the best drama couple! No one can top them until now…

What is the best smell in the world?

Jasmine. I’m drawn to it.

Your dream pairing for a drama.

Yoo Seung Ho and feisty Song Ji Hyo! Don’t ask me why! It could work, right? Hehehe

Your favourite character from Friends (if you haven’t seen it, then from any other American T.V. show)

Phoebe! She is so quirky and cute, how can you not love her!

caption

And my final set of questions came from Kakashi. I love this woman! I adore her and she gives me some good advice on drama and raising a kid! And I have met her! She was here in late August for convention and I took the opportunity to spend time with her and other bloggers of The Problematic community! They are the funnest ladies around!

Which scene in a drama would you like to re-enact?
I’ve been telling my husband over the cute scene in Goong when Lee Shin woke up and pull Chae Kyung to him! Oh my, how seductive that scene was! Wow… I think I  need to do a rewatch again!
What is your favorite KDrama hair?
Aaron-Yan-Fall-in-Love-with-Me
Aaron Yan’s character as Lu Tian Xing in Fall in Love with Me. Geez, I almost wanna say the reason I stick to the show to very end is because of his hair! Geez, if I could run my fingers through it…
Which drama gave you your first case of Second Lead Syndrome?
minam2-00189
Wow, I’ve had a lot of SLS but the hardest to move on was with Shin Woo from You’re Beautiful. How can I move on from him? Jjeoltae andwae!
Now, for a really objective question: Why, in your honest opinion, is Song Jae-rim the most adorkable husband ever in We Got Married? (Feel free to invent reasons.) Hmm… that doesn’t sound right. How about: Song Jae-rim is such a cute dork. Yes or not no? Nope. Not that either.If Song Jae-rim is the answer, what is the question? Then, just a silly one: If you are the answer, what is the question?
This is too deep, Mary. I know this is yours. I wanna say… Who loves MBLAQ G.O? The answer is ME.
Of the many, many, MANY bad endings you have lived through, what is the ONE drama ending that you would re-write, and how?
You Who Came from the Stars ending!!! Why do they have to do that to our OTP??? If I could rewrite it, I’ll make Min Joon give up his abilities and longevity to live and become more human-like and live with Song Yi forever ever and ever and ever. Too fairytale? Well, I was extremely hopeful!!!
Chose someone from k-ent that you would like to have a meal with. Then choose what the main course would be, and what you wish they would wear to the dinner table.
collage
Hehehe at this moment, it would have to be MBLAQ G.O. I know he is a cool guy so eating any kind of hawker food with him would ideally be the best. I love him in casual clothes so if he show up with hoodies, I’m extremely content!
What is your favorite OST? And your favorite individual OST song?
Thanks to Kakashi, I started watching Warrior Baek Dong Soo. And I love the entire songs in this drama. They are perfect! Very perfect! Individual OST song? You Are So Beautiful by JYJ Junsu for Scent of a Woman. Have you heard it? It’s a goosebumps song!
If you could hot tub with 3 k-ent people, who would you pick?
Wow! Really? This is easy! I want to be the only woman in a tub! No judging, okay??? MBLAQ G.O, Yoo Seung Ho and Jo In Sung! Kekeke
Okay, now I get to ask questions! Wow… Hmmmmmmm kay, here are my questions!
1. Who is your favorite third wheeler in kdrama?
2. Name a kdrama you love but no one else seems to enjoy it.
3. If you can go noraebang with, who would you go and why?
4. If there’s a song that can sum up all about you, what song is it?
5. What is one Korean food you have been craving but yet to try?
6. Who is your favorite singer/group?

Grace and the crew of Musings of A Twinkie
Drama Fan & Gumi of Stuck on Hyuk

ericnamdalamnya

And to all my readers…. don’t you just love Eric Nam??? I’m a big fan of his first album, Cloud 9,  and Oooh Oooh is definitely a big change for Eric. Before, he was “the boy next door” but as of today he’s “the hottie boy next door!” I’m super stoked and psyched by this song! Eric’s voice is so cute!

Wednesday Eu-Mak: C’mon and Dance

Good morning and happy Wednesday, chingu! How is your week so far? I have been super busy with real life work and family. And also, I’m still trying to recover from my own sickness. Hence, the lacking of drama posts. I don’t forget, so please do not worry so much. I will soon catch up with all my pending posts. Promise! At the moment, I’m trying my hardest to finish all my pending work that is piling up at my work desk. In two weeks, I’ll be out of the country again and I don’t know how will I keep up with balancing my life (family, work, blog) for the next 3 months. I guess I will just let the nature do its course and go with the flow *shrugs*

Anywho, enough depression news for today. Let’s get happy with two of my favorite new releases! I guarantee you will want to dance to these songs. The MVs are Delicious by Toheart and Swing (Korean version) by Super Junior-M. So, what are we waiting for ladies and gentlemen? Let’s get up and dance!!!

Infinite-woohyun-shinee-key-toheart-teaser-2

Toheart is a new collaboration group made up by two singers from two different entertainment group. *snickers* I would never thought to see such collaboration would exist in this life of mine but guess what? It did! Toheart is represented by WooHyun of Infinite (woolliment) and Key of SHINee (SMTown). Is it too much to ask that maybe one day we will get to see such collab between woolliment, SMTown and YG? Hehehe it is a dream… *snaps fingers* Right, let’s get back to the music!

Delicious! Yes, it is kinda delicious! The hybrid duo, WoohyunKey, are no strangers to all kpop fans. Their voices are so awesome together. Key has a sharp, high (not pitchy) voice and WooHyun has this ballad-like voice. Together they made Delicious super delicious. Love the dance too! They really take this MV by storm… The colorful suits with the white background (and not to mention white suit backup dancers too) are darn too pretty to ignore. The English part of the lyrics are quite entertaining. I mean “c’mon girl love is so nutritious, c’mon girl love is so delicious?” I laugh so hard! Leave it to the Korean pop to entertain us the non-speaking Korean fans! It is funny as hell but I really enjoy it. The song is so catchy enough it makes me want to get up and dance! I hope you feel the same way too…

super-junior-m_1395234626_af_org

Next stop on this eu-mak post? Super Junior-M!!!! God I love these boys! Wait? Did I just say that out loud? *giggles* I have almost all Super Junior albums and all the songs are pretty entertaining. And this new addition to SuJu-M is so out loud entertaining too. The boys can never disappoint their fans. Swing is another catchy tune you simply can’t resists. I myself have been hearing it gazillion times. The group released two version of Swing. The first one was in Mandarin. The Korean version one was released 3 days ago. I gotta say, I prefer the mando pop more. I don’t know… It just sounds better? And plus, I heard the Mandarin version first so my hearing is more in tune with this version. But either way, the song is catchy good. The dance is pretty awesome. All the 8 members are looking ohemgeeeee hawt!!! I really can’t decide on which man I’d like to sleep with! I am so torn with SiWon’s stache, DongHae’s sleek sweep hair, Henry’s cute tiny face, Kyuhyun’s daebak voice, Ryeowook’s baby face, SungMin’s sweet sweet smile, Eunhyuk’s agile move, and Zhou Mi’s handsome face (LeeTuk’s lookalike?). Aaaaa these boys!

Do you notice that this is a trilingual song? My gal, kpopkolorado, pointed out to me just last week. So you don’t actually just hear English and Korean (Mandarin) anymore… You should also hear Spanish too! Although it’s only uno, duos, tres but it is enough to leave fabulous impression for their Spanish speaking fans. And plus, the mentioned of name Maria? Now that’s awesome! There are lots of Maria out there, I’m sure they are flattered. If you are interested in reading my review on the Chinese version with kpopkolorado, please click here.

Well, did you love the MVs? I know the songs are not for everyone and I can’t please everybody. I hope to go back to some old songs on my next post. I hope. I’ve been quite forgetful lately… Fingers crossing to that. Until then… Have a great day and have a wonderful April!
