Concerning F(x), IU, etc…

September 1, 2009

So I really like this song. I’ve had it on repeat for most of tonight.

Honestly when I heard the first teaser, I wasn’t impressed – I didn’t like the sound of it at all. But now that I’ve heard the entire thing, I think it’s pretty good. Pretty and fun and melodic and easy to follow, the dance looks interesting enough and most of all, it’s not just ‘catchy’ or overly repetitive like the last few hit songs from SME have been. Mind you, I liked those songs but you know that kind of thing gets old fast so this is a nice change. Here’s their new MV teaser for those of you who haven’t yet seen it – it looks nice enough, the car is really cute:

~Talk to Mah Boday~

June 10, 2009

LOL, what a scandalous post title. XD Anyway, I’m excited! Wei shenme, you ask? Well, do you remember when SHINee did that guest appearance on 2PM’s season of Idol Show and for the talent portion, Jonghyun sang a cover of 4men’s song ‘Baby, Baby’? No? Well that’s okay (although you should really check out those episodes because  they were side-splittingly funny). The point is that he finally sang the entire song on ShimShimTapa (I told you I loved there!) the other day and it was buenissimo, claro!

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.

Now You See What A Good Hairstyle Can Do?

February 25, 2009

I remember posting awhile ago about how I didn’t like Key’s seemingly permanent comb-over hairstyle and I’ve noticed that they’re switching it up a bit these days and now voila!

Maki is…

January 12, 2009

Excited.

So there I was, puttering around the net when I decided to pop into SHINee Forums to see if there was anything of note to see – pictures or news or so on – and what do I see but news about a new song?!

Blast From The Past!

January 8, 2009

So I was listening to my iPod just now and randomly thinking of how much I love Jonghyun and Onew’s voices and then I decided to pop onto Youtube and see if I could scrounge up some videos of them singing solos that I hadn’t seen yet – because believe it or not, I actually haven’t seen all. And I came across these gems which I think are way too nice not to share with you.

The Jonghyun solo, which I watched first, has no title attached to it, although in the comments, someone says that the translated title would be something like “Cleaning Up” and that it’s by an artist called The Ray but honestly all that doesn’t really matter. The point is that this is a really good performance by Jonghyun – filmed way back in July at Chin Chin Radio – and I would most definitely recommend it. For some reason, despite my immense love for Jonghyun’s voice, I rarely like his solos – mainly because I just don’t like the kinds of songs he chooses to sing – but this one is an exception to that rule. It’s really pretty good and towards the end, when he gets really into the song and goes off with the high notes and whatnot, I just sort of got all @_@ and kept thinking, “How is he doing that?” It’s something I think often when it comes to him. 🙂 But it’s really quite good and during the first verse, I was seriously so focused on his voice that I didn’t even realize that there was accompanying music playing. LOL. Of course he has some off moments where he loses his control over his voice a little but that’s okay – those were early days and so you shouldn’t fault them that. And honestly being rookies, I’d let them get away with a lot more – I really only expect so much from their lives now because their lives were just so good before! It still amazes me… So check it out if you haven’t seen it, okay?

Onew’s Solo, ‘Still With You’ – credit: jyck923

Dubu. Solo. In English. Nuff’ said.

Just kidding – of course, I’ll say more. So this is an Eric Benet song called “Still With You” – I don’t know it (I never seem to!) but it’s in English! And the lyrics make me think of ‘Forever More’ and you know how I feel about Onew singing these ballads….his voice was made for ballads, I swear! Of course, he sounds really, really good here and dare I say that watching this, I actually thought – but only for a second – that it might have been better if he had been a solo singer. Ah, but I know I thought that I thought that just because I’m afraid he won’t be fully appreciated for his rather impressive vocal abilities within the group – they really need to give him more challenging lines in their songs. People say that Jonghyun needs to give up some of his lines to Dubu but honestly it’s not about him having more lines, what matters is that the lines actually allow him to showcase his vocal ability and his range. Ah, but I’ve said all this before and I’m starting to sound like a broken record so back to the video – as always, Onew really manages to express the feel of the song through his voice and his voice gives me such a relaxing, safe feeling that in a way, I don’t mind that I feel sad listening to it. Aigoo, I wish SHINee had songs like this on their album – I mean, I love their songs and while they’re sad and plaintive enough, they haven’t quite got that particular longing, mournful quality that these seem to have – or maybe that’s just Onew’s influence? IDK – all I know is this video is wonderful and you should really check it out. Now go watch!

And a little duet for you…here’s Onew and Jonghyun singing “Did We Really Love You?” originally by Brown Eyed Soul.

So I’ve never heard the original of this – but after this, I’m gonna have to check it out – so I can’t say much about it as a cover but it’s a great performance nonetheless. I’m not always a fan of duets between the two of them – speaking of, where’s my JongKey duet? The two of them need to sing a song together like stat! – but this one was very nice. Their voices went well together for the most part and of course, they sounded amazing individually. LOL, when the song first started, I got confused because the opening lines sounded just like “Nothing Better” to me but soon that went away. This song is really nice, by the way – I love the chorus! Ah, I’m going to go look around for the original now – you just go watch the video, okay? Now this one’s also from July so they’re not perfect but still, they sound so good for amateurs. Every time I watch these videos, I feel like I’m at a karaoke except with people who can actually sing. (Okay so yeah, there are good singers at karaokes too but they aren’t always, you know)

Adios! Enjoy!

Oh, and on a side note, I now have 400 favourites on my Youtube channel. Awesomesauce, yes? I have SHINee to thank for that. XD
