The “It’s You MV is out!!!!

May 12, 2009

Here it is!!! EDIT: I changed the video to the official one, btw – turns out the one I posted before was the leaked version, my bad. Anyway, it’s really not that different – it just has some longer solo shots and a few added scenes as well as added effects in the dance portion. The effects are a little distracting but other than that, it’s okay – still a fantastic video.

Enjoy! Spazz to come. I’m warning you – this will be long. It might rival my ‘Amigo’ spazz post – just saying.

Updates, Updates, Updates!

May 8, 2009

So to make up for the fact that I’ve been meaning to post a few things, I decided to do a short compilation post. So the next few weeks are going to be pretty exciting fandom-wise.

IU Update

April 25, 2009

Here’s her new MV for ‘Boo’.

Okay, yes, the concept and the song are very different from ‘Mia’ and probably not what you were expecting from her (I know I wasn’t) but it really isn’t that bad and we shouldn’t think of it as a step down but instead as her trying out a new style. Honestly, ‘Boo’ really is a very cute, catchy enough song and it’s impossible to hide IU’s impressive vocal ability in a song like this – and look on the bright side, it may be on the cutesy side but at least, they didn’t digitalize her voice or use a ton of synthesizer – and for that, we should always be grateful.

Good Ole Americana

April 3, 2009

So this is a little unusual for me but I decided to something different and recommend to you an American artist that I’m growing to be pretty fond of. She’s a new artist – new in the sense that she isn’t particularly well known as of yet in the States and she was only recently signed to a label – but she’s already released her first studio album, which I bought a few days ago – her name is Erin McCarley and her album, ‘Love Save The Empty’ is titled after one of the songs on the album.

edit: Oh, the official video for ‘Love Save The Empty’ was uploaded to Erin’s Youtube channel today and it’s also already on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown (number 18) so go vote for it, okay?

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…

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.

February 28, 2009

You know, it’s really not good to want things but nevertheless that hasn’t stopped me yet so that said, I’m really excited because my mum, who I love dearly, is letting me order a cd of my choosing next week from online – the only problem is that there are a number of cds I want and I don’t know which one to get yet. So I’ve decided to do a short compilation here and see if it helps me decide. So here they are in no particular order:
