S.O.S.

April 5, 2009

So I’m sure if you’re a BOF fan, you’ve probably already heard about this but SHINee has a new song titled ‘Bodyguard’ which is being used as the promotional song for the new AnyCall cell phone campaign featuring one of the popular BOF couples, GaEul and YiJung (played by Kim SoEun and Kim Bum respectively). The MV for the campaign itself is really adorable and funny even for someone like me who never got far enough into the show to see their romantic storyline begin. Actually I was kind of shocked while watching the MV at how harsh YiJung was to her at times – but I guess that’s his cool, playboy facade at work? It only took away from the cuteness by a little bit anyway. And Boom! I don’t know if he’s just a comedian or an MC but I’ve seen him in a few things and he’s always really funny and here is no different. I really like how Kim Bum beats him and his ‘thugs’, by the way – with a kendo stick that pops out of nowhere. It’s funny~

As for the song, it’s very youthful and sweet and it has a really light and breezy sound and it’s definitely got more of a pop-py sound than any of SHINee’s other songs. I didn’t like it at first listen because it reminded me too much of ‘Stand By Me’ which I also disliked at first but it grew on me the more I heard it (just like ‘Stand By Me’) and after watching it coupled with the video, I think it’s very fitting for the campaign – the light, youthful sound is the perfect accompaniment for SoEul’s little, semi-romantic love story. I’m really glad the boys got a chance to do this because even though it’s not their campaign per se, with the popularity of Kkot Boda Namja and the So-Eul couple in particular, I think they’ll still get a good bit of exposure from it. And well, it’s just really nice to hear something fresh from the boys since I kind of killed my SHINee World cd. Ah, I really can’t wait for the new releases. Oh, and a little heads up – Yesasia’s having a big sale for the entire month of April and one of the discounted items is SHINee’s first mini-album so now’s the time to get it, people! You can bet your bottom dollar I’ll finally be getting mine. ^_^

Also I’m not sure if you know but Key went to Nanjing, China this week-end to perform with his sunbae and labelmate, Xiah Junsu (lol, I’m writing so formally about my Su) at DBSK’s Mirotic Concert and I am pleased to announce THAT HE CUT HIS HAIR. Yay! LOL, I know it’s silly to be happy about such a little thing but he really needed it. Now he looks a lot like he did in the Replay days – ah, so sweet and innocent and young – and it makes me blissfully nostalgic. ^^ Pictures to clarify. credit: Soompi

Flashback!

February 27, 2009

Hiya!

So I was just puttering around Youtube watching random SHINee vids while waiting for my Family Outing episodes to load and I came across this NYSP+Amigo performance that I’d never seen before (I was shocked – I thought I saw almost all) And it was pretty good but the real reason that I enjoyed it was because they performed the Replay Boom Track Remix live and honestly,  that’s not something they do too often. I’m sure they have performed it live before but I can’t really remember seeing that (except at ASF which doesn’t really count because the actual vocals were covered with the track in the broadcast anyway) so yeah, this is exciting! It was a really good performance – huge stage, intense dancing, pretty good vocals. The boys sound a little tired (it’s from November) but they pulled it off great, of course, despite everything. So I definitely recommend taking a watch if like me you haven’t seen it already. Take a gander below.

Nostalgia – I miss the Replay days…

January 18, 2009

So I was bored earlier (bored? there are so many things I could have been doing!) and I started watching some old videos and I put on Replay and I had such a blast watching it that I ended up ~replay~ing it about four or five times.

Hmm, I think I might have said this before but I miss the Replay days. I miss the boys’ cute image. I mean, I know they haven’t that much and I really like Amigo and I loved LLO but I think they could have continued going the cute route for a little bit longer. I just miss how cute and young and fresh and awkward they were, how they were always bushy-tailed and bright eyed about everything, how they always looked happy and excited and eager and NOT tired, how they did a million interviews a week (I really miss that!) and I even miss their too bright clothing and matching graphic print tees. Hmm, I don’t know what to say…I guess I’m just feeling nostalgic. I know I’m just being silly – after all, everything changes and the cute thing would have gotten old after awhile but I just can’t help how I’m feeling.

Music Core!

January 11, 2009

Hola. Okay so this is a little bit late but here’s the wrap-up for this week’s Music Core. I actually watched this live but my player was buffering like crazy so I only caught bits and pieces of most of the performances. It was quite frustrating. Let’s start with SHINee, ne?

So….Please Excuse Me While I Scream.

All right – the SHINee medley performance I was talking about – it’s out AND OMG, IT IS FANTASTIC! WATCH.

Did you hear what I said? Fantastic? Yeah, I’m not joking – I was shocked. I was a little anxious about the Romantic performance, to be honest, because I know the boys are tired and Onew’s been a bit hoarse lately but there was nothing to worry about. Seriously, the boys really delivered here! They sounded good – so good – and they were full of energy and life and just overall awesomeness! Yay!
