Whoo-Hoo!

March 29, 2009

Suju won again! Whoo! Yay! The acceptance speeches were a lot less tearful this time around and as usual, Heechul stole everyone’s attention by picking up Hongki and spinning him around in a big bear hug while the rest of his members were having their own group hug. LOL, typical Heechul. I think only Leeteuk cried this time, although Kangin looked a little emotional in the background – good to see that even manly Kangin gets emotional sometimes. ^^

Oh, and the performance was fantastic! It was one of their better ones for sure. Lots of energy, everyone looked and sounded good – although I do wonder if this choreo isn’t a bit much for Kyuhyun, he always seems to be a bit out of breath towards the end – and I’ve even stopped being surprised when Heechul shows up. As usual, the camera angles are very well done, although not as good as the previous Inkigayo performances and there’s a cool switch in the choreo towards the end of the performance that I really loved. It was just very good. I really liked the touch of gold in their outfits as well, although it didn’t work for everyone as well as it did for some. Also I am still confounded by EunHyuk’s pants/socks – really I just don’t even know what to say about those. DongHae looks good though – I always like his outfits the best.

And finally, watch this performance – I demand it! (Please.)

It’s the latest Davichi performance of 8282 (Pali Pali) and I was appalled at how few views it had. These girls are extremely talented and their lives never disappoint – really, I’m always amazed at how good they are – and MinKyung’s even wearing a really cute military style jacket here so I don’t know why people aren’t watching their performances. Really, why are these girls so under-rated? So go do yourself a favour and watch the performance please even if you don’t like the song. It’s really incredible.

Oh, and fortunately the Suju housewarming party was really in last night’s WGM episode so I’m sure it will be up and subbed soon! For the time being, it’s already up on YT, just sans subs. I’ll be awaiting them patiently. Well, that’s it – enjoy the performances!

P.S:- I started watching Suju’s Adonis Camp show and LOL, I made it through three episodes in one night. Oh, the hilarity – it is ensuing. It’s amazing how one only needs to gather any number of Suju members together – just anyone – and something funny will undoubtedly occur. They are such a riot.

Yue Liang Dai Biao Wo De Xin

March 22, 2009

The title is the name of one of the two few traditional Chinese songs that I know and I chose it because I just came across a video of Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, although here he’s acting as a member of Suju M, singing it on a Chinese tv show and OMG, it’s beautiful. He doesn’t even sing much and he doesn’t know all of the words and cuteness ensues as Han Geng comes up behind him and tries to feed him the words so that he can keep singing (oh, I knew Geng would make a good leader!) but in the end, he just turns the mic over to Han Geng and Siwon to finish up. (Siwon also has a really nice voice, imo) but all of that doesn’t matter because the 40 or so seconds that he sings sounds fantastic. My Gosh, his voice is just so beautiful – I really wish he sang the whole song. OMGee, you don’t know how happy I am to get to hear him sing that song just because I actually know it! And I feel bad now because I didn’t even pay that much attention when we were learning it in class but now I’ll definitely pay close attention when we learn songs because I might get to hear someone I know sing it and sound amazing and because it might help me prepare for my final exam.

SHINee in Thailand! Part 1

March 21, 2009

You know I don’t do this often but I figure if you’re like me, you’re probably missing the boys a lot. So here are some new pictures of the boys to tide you over for a little while. The boys are in Thailand right now for the Pattaya Music Festival and these are all from there. Picture Credits: Soompi and Shineee.net/SHINee Forums

Just…Catching Up

March 17, 2009

Okay, so I’m not making any promises yet but I think that maybe you can begin to expect some regular Suju coverage from me from now on because well, I’m now a fan of theirs – and a big one by the looks of it. I spent this whole last week-end rooting through Youtube and watching any lengthy subbed clip of theirs I could find – I watched them on PKL’s Wonderful Outing, saw their ‘Coffee Prince’ parody and checked out their stint on the ‘3 Women, 3 Colour’ show. Honestly, it’s not much but it’s a start. (Hey, if you have any more to recommend, feel free!)

Super Junior Vol. 3 – ‘Sorry, Sorry’

March 13, 2009

Listen to it here.

Hmm, well I don’t know about you but I like it. I’ve never listened to an entire Suju album before so I wasn’t sure what to expect – but I’m impressed. It’s very good, imo, and there are some really outstanding songs on it. Mind you, I’m only on my second listen so I’m still processing the songs. Some of my current favourites are:

Monster – I love this song. I think it’s got the potential to end up on my ‘favourite song of all time list’. High on the list. I just keep replaying it – it’s just….it makes me feel. I’m not sure exactly what I’m feeling but it’s very powerful.

Why I Like You – it was the second song that really stood out to me on the album and it’s extremely pretty – a lovely mix of sweetness and melancholy. In addition, I am really falling in love with Yesung’s voice, particularly in his ‘Yeah!’ here.

What If – So sad. Really heartbreakingly beautiful. Since I don’t think ‘Monster’ can be counted as a ballad, this has got to be my favorite ballad on the album. It’s just very moving and pure and their voices are so clear and distinct here, it’s really impressive.

Dead at Heart – This song is fantastic. Second favourite ballad, for sure.

Reset – I love this song now. Seriously, it’s a really nice mid-tempo track with a chorus that I wouldn’t call catchy so much as memorable and a rap that I am particularly fond of. I don’t often say this but I think it’s really a shame that there weren’t more rap parts in the album because the few that are there are really good. And as a bonus, here’s the first live performance of the song on the Suju comeback special segment of Sukira on Friday – it’s very good!

Honourable Mention: Club No. 1 – Honestly I really like this song – but only until Lee YeonHee’s part. No offense to her but I seriously dislike her high-pitched singing and I don’t think it was at all necessary for the song. That said, it’s a really good song and I love the way Super Junior sing here – it’s very cool.

Now I’m a new Suju fan so I really can’t say much about how this stacks up with their other stuff – all I can say is that I really like the album and I’m quite impressed. Now I’ve got my eye on Version B…I’m still trying to figure out if I should preorder it or just wait for the inevitable repackage. It all depends on how my feelings progress as I listen to the album more. If I’m really crazy about it, I’ll most likely end up pre-ordering – there’s still a little time. On Yesasia, it won’t be released until the 16th so I’ve still got a few days to think about it. Btw, does anyone know if the price will raise when it’s released? Because if that’s the case, preordering is looking a lot more likely. I really don’t know.

Oh, and apparently it’s been officialy confirmed that the MV will be released on the 13th. So hopefully that means that by the time I get home manana, I’ll have both the MV and the comeback performance to watch. Yay. Something to get me through the day.

Now Sharing Some SM Family Love…

March 12, 2009

OMGee, could Onew be any more adorable? Seriously, seeing him here reminded me of just how cute he is. So cute! I just want toeat him up. I’m sorely tempted right now to lament on why I can’t marry him again but since I’m sure I’ve done that here enough, I won’t bother. Also, TaeYeon’s outfit is super cute as well – but it’s cuteness is totally eclipsed by Onew’s natural adorableness. ^^ Surprisingly, despite how much I’m loving Onew right now, I don’t feel even a lick of jealousy because of the above shots. I think it’s because I know how close SM-ites are – they all have really nice, close relationships so I don’t think there’s anything to read into the hand-holding. Besides, Taeyeon’s adorable in her own right. 🙂

Just to fill you in, my lack of updating is partly on account of the fact that SHINee really seem to be on break now – they’re busy working on that second album we keep hearing about, the one that I imagine will be dropping sometime in late May, somewhere around their first anniversary, since with Suju’s comeback happening now, April’s probably gonna be too soon – and because in preparation for Super Junior’s comeback, I’ve been catching up on them (and learning their names – I finally know all, yay!) by watching their shows, Full House and now Explorers of the Human Body. Funniest show ever! OMG, if you haven’t watched EHB, go do it now, now, now! And if you have seen it, go watch it again. Thank goodness, YT didn’t get those during The Great Deletion.

Anyway, I’m now convinced that the members of Suju are some of the coolest, dorkiest people to ever live and am totally psyched for their imminent comeback, mainly for the many variety show appearances that we can expect as a result of it. Speaking of their imminent comeback, a video was released today showing some of the choreo for their new song, ‘Sorry, Sorry’ and I have to say that it is looking awesome! They got some amazing choreographers, that’s for sure. I’m not really sure if all of the Suju guys can pull those moves off but I’m gonna give them the benefit of the doubt for now. We’ll see soon enough anyway…XD Preview the new album here, by the way. Coincidentally, my list of ‘people I won’t be able to marry even though I really want to’ has grown again, thanks to Suju. Just by one though – Choi Siwon. He’s sooooooo cool! The only person I’ve ever wanted to call ‘oppa’. LOL, I don’t like to use that too much – I think it sounds too fangirl-y. (Like I’m not already, right?)

Anyway, in case you were wondering, those pictures up there came from Onew’s guest appearance as a DJ on ChinChin. He filled in on Sunday for Kangin who was in China with the rest of Suju for the Super Show. The rest are under the cut if you’re interested – same credit.
