Happy Birthday!

October 14, 2009

So I was going to start regularly consolidating my K-pop celeb birthday posts into digests like I did last month but I feel that this guy deserves one of his own.

Today, Donghae, on your 23rd birthday, I just wish you lots and lots of happiness. If there was anything I could wish for you right now, it would be that you could have a birthday (and subsequently a year) full of joy and good times and laughter and fun because I think that you deserve it. Not just because you’re my favourite Korean boy but because you’re a beautiful, kind, pure, loving person who always tries his darnedest as well. In addition, I hope that you’ll continue to be content and find fulfillment in the life that you’ve chosen for yourself, I hope that you’ll grow closer to God and I hope that you’ll continue to blossom into an even more amazing human being.

I love you, Lee Donghae and I wish you all the best on today, your 23rd birthday. Saranghae. ♥

SHINee’s New Single Teaser

October 9, 2009

I like this a lot. They’ve returned to that R&B style that I loved from them. I really feel like they did R&B so well – I mean, I like that they branched out as well but this is their forte, imo and I’m happy to see that they’ve returned to that. 😀 Can’t wait to hear the full thing! The teaser’s already on repeat.

Also, does this boy not look fantastic? I love this look on him already.

Intimate Note with SNSD!

October 2, 2009

Credit for the subs goes, of course, to the magnificent soshisubs

If you’re an SNSD fan and you haven’t watched this, I’d suggest you go about rectifying that right now. This goes beyond funny – it is the actual embodiment of hilarity. I mean, when I first heard that Soshi were going to be on Intimate Note, I couldn’t figure why because I thought that they got along fine and I couldn’t imagine that they’d really have that much to talk about.

Well, I was wrong.

This is just about the craziest episode of Intimate Note that I’ve seen to date (Okay, I’ve only really watched two but whatever) – everyone goes off on everyone else and no one is safe (well, except for Tiffany because she wasn’t there). But seriously, they just went to town each other, airing all their greivances and the majority of them are silly and petty and ridicuously amusing while a few hit closer to home (feel free to ‘aww’ at the appropriate moments). TaeYeon, SooYoung, Jessica and SeoHyun really stand out here but HYOYEON is comedy gold – I knew she was funny! She cracked me up non-stop!  I think in trms of variety shows, she’s really beginning to come into her own and I’m glad because hopefully, it will mean that she’ll get more notices that we will get to see more of her in the future. But anyway, they all have their moments to shine and generally this episode is just a big barrel of laughs and the MCs just make matters even worse, what with trying to generate a ‘scandal’ surrounding SooYoung and their manager, Moon HeeJun acting like a love-sick schoolboy over Taeyeon and the like.

Now if my lovely mini-review hasn’t changed your mind, you can check out my full spazzing over the actual parts themselves here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4. There are actually six parts but I didn’t feel like blogging about the last two. So go watch it, you guys – you won’t regret it!
