SJM - Super Girl

Super Junior-M's new single Super Girl is out.

Siwon's Mandarin pronunciation makes me wince. Donghae sounds like a native, Ryeowook and Kyuhyun pretty much nails it, and Henry didn't sing enough for me to make a call. There's really no point commenting on Han Geng and Zhou Mi's pronunciation.



Gods, they look good, and the song is catchy enough that it will definitely send them into the top of the charts.

Korean fans are bat-shit insane.

Once again I am reminded that the Korean fans are insane. Jaebeom, leader of a 7-member boy group 2PM quits the band due to pressure from anti-fans and threats of suicide packs.

I do not make this shit up.

Basically back in 2005 Jaebeom wrote some stuff about his dislike of Korea and Koreans on his Myspace site (the boy was 17 for crying out loud). Considering how much he was being criticized at the time for not being able to speak Korean well (born and grew up in the US), some really shitty expression of racism, it is kind of understandable why he needed to vent. Anyways, the post was discovered by some netizens a few days ago, the shit hit the fan, uprising of anti-fan movement; threats, suicide packs and basically some really shitty behavior. In conclusion we have Jaebeom quitting the band and returning to America.

Dudes, seriously, this is why people can’t have good things. And this is why many Korean fans (or more like anti-fans) are bat-shit insane.

I LOVE the INTERNETS!

[livejournal.com profile] perseid, if you are ALIVE, I'd just like to say I'm currently feeling very CONFUSED. SuJu have been producing BETTER music than DBSK (I mean, Sorry Sorry is far superior to Survivor, and OMFG! It's You's MV and music is just better than, well, it is better than Bolero... at least it is more listenable). My world is ENDING.

That's all.

Oh, wait, one other thing - I would like to book in a day to see you, preferably sometime after I have had a chance to watch the season finale of SPN, and hopefully after this weekend of Doom. Perhaps next weekend or the weekend after? (22nd or the 29th of May?).

Korean music - YAY!

I am listening to Super Junior's new single - Sorry Sorry none-stop. Like all of their previous main singles, Sorry Sorry is catchy and really upbeat. I can't believe how much I have missed them. Here’s hoping that they will make a successful comeback. In other Korean boy-band news; the massive amount of DBSK related goodness being produced by the Japanese music scene makes my little fangirl heart full of squee.

Working on the weekend. Urk.

I'm also obsessively listening to new KPOP. OMFG! I'm LISTENING to so much Girl's Generation and Brown Eyed Girls. OMFG! They CAN sing, their vocals are just phenomenal.

[livejournal.com profile] nekomancy, you will LOVE Girl's Generation, and I have finally found the rest of my Epik High albums. We should meet up sometime next week and I can pass you music and stuff.

Not going to watch the new SPN episode until I finish all my work.

Also, TENNIS! OMFG! WHAT?! OMFG! 5 HOURS AND 14 MINUTES! OMFG! OMFG! OMFG! I'm WATCHING CLIPS of this! BUT OMFG! THAT WAS AN AMAZING GAME! HOW THE HELL DO THEY DO IT?! OMFG! THAT WAS JUST AMAZING! IT IS FEDERER V NADAL FOR THE MEN'S FINALS AT THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN! EEEE! CAN YOU IMAGINE?!!!

HELP: Do people make .avi files of tennis matches (or, maybe tapes)? I still have NO tv and I'd love to see this match (and the final) live. Anyone?

Also, [livejournal.com profile] nekomancy, I LITERALLY CANNOT UNSEE the WHITE DOTS ANYMORE! I HATE YOU SO VERY MUCH!

[livejournal.com profile] perseid!!! DBSK's new single Bolero. OMFG! OMFG! OMFG! The OPENING, and the BRIDGING parts at the 3 minutes mark. They are TRYING NEW things in this single! CHANGMIN! OMFG! THE HIGH NOTES! And CHANGMIN! BABY just BLASTS the whole thing into the stratosphere.

Oh gods, please let this BREAK the 100,000 units mark in Japan.
naanima: ([DBSK] HAHAH Bros CRACK)
[livejournal.com profile] perseid, have you seen DBSK performing 'Wrong Number on Music Core??!! OMFG!!! THEY WORE PINSTRIPE SUITS!!!!!! Gods, I'm so very shallow when it comes to them, but OMGF! It is a LIVE performance, and they NAIL it!!!! Also, Yunho sitting on his back up dancers NEVER gets OLD! NEVER!

OHGODS! We NEED to SEE each other SOON!!!! People do NOT understand my obsession with their HIGH NOTES! And JAEJOONG (I mean, JAEJOONG!!) rapping! I may have watched this performance, um, a few times. But WHAT ELSE AM I MEANT TO DO WITH THIS ENFORCED STAY AT HOME THING?! OK, so my stomach is feeling much better and I think I may be almost 100% come this evening, so not so bad.

I LOVE how, apparently, the Japanese Entertainment industry is just waiting for Johnny to DIE! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! OMFG! The old man is NEVER going to die! He is going to be one of those old man that’s just going to live forever because he is kind of awesome in his evil ways. But seriously, you have got to admire the old goat for having the Japanese Entertainment Industry by the balls for over half a century. It AMUSES me GREATLY!

Oh, yesterday, I DISCOVERED good Heroes slash. That occupied me for a few hours.

ALSO, OMFG WHY DO I HAVE 195 USERPIC SLOTS?!! DID I WIN A PRIZE OR SOMETHING? PLEASE EXPLAIN!

OHHHHH, NEED COFFEE!

I had this whole pimp-post written up about why I LOVE Bi/Rain; how his mother died of diabetes because they were too poor to afford the medication, the fact that he still live in the same crummy apartment as when he first began his career, the way he doesn't take anything for granted, and just how damn talented he is. And then through stupidity I deleted the post by accident. So, all you are getting is 2 pictures, a MV, and the wiki link. Not the best page but hey it is a great introduction.

No, I refuse to lj-cut this. Also, his new MV;



I could have embedded the one where he rips his shirt off before performing the song, but you know, I REALLY like this MV. Now to sleep.

Fandom update because I like to keep track

naanima: ([SPN] Jensen and Jared are just good fri)
Still around – reading [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang and re-watching DBSK’s 3rd Live T Tour Concert clips on my iPod. Bigbang fics has been very draining this year, don’t get me wrong, the quality has been superb, but some of the angst has been both unflinching and unrelenting. As a consequence I have finally figured out what type of stories I prefer to read; generally speaking I prefer reading understated J2 fics, not the epics but fics that focus on the day-to-day lives of our heroes. I want to read about people falling in love; not the be all and end all love like that of Sam and Dean (platonic or otherwise). I want the quiet, understated and content love that some of the J2 fics has been pulling off so superbly.

[livejournal.com profile] reccea’s In Production is my current favourite big bang fic.

A decade after Supernatural ends, Jared Padalecki is still working in series television. His marriage to Sandy is coming to an amicable end, and he's famous enough that he wants to be out of town before he becomes a tabloid headline.

Jensen Ackles has seen his career progress from small but weighty parts that earned him acclaim to above the title billing. The notoriously private Jensen extends an invitation--by way of a first-class plane ticket--for Jared to hide out at Jensen's mostly empty Paris flat while he films his next movie.

Three months in Paris is enough to tone down the tabloid attention, but Jared returns to LA only to find that he doesn't have everything figured out. They say you can't go home again, but Jared discovers that sometimes that's exactly what you have to do.


In Production is my current happy place.


[livejournal.com profile] perseid, DBSK’s 3rd Live T Tour Concert clips has been awesome; so much dancing, so much singing and so much FLESH! I really like the film clip they did for TRICK; it makes me want to read fics about the boys being spies. I love like YunHo’s long hair, the shiny silver outfits and they even made me like Tomorrow, which I hate with the passion of a thousand burning suns. I still prefer YunChun’s voice the most, and a live band at the concert was the best decision they ever made.
Good time, good times.

OMFG! AHAHAHAHAHA! Stephen Colbert talking about the online award for Time 100 in relation to Rain coming #1, again.

Super Junior M

naanima: ([SUJU] Hugs!)
I LOVE the Mandarin version of U by Super Junior M (a sub-group of the 13 member idol group Super Junior with an addition of 2 extra members)! I want to PINCH Henry's CHEEKS! HIS CHUBBY, CHUBBY. CHUBBY CHEEKS! [livejournal.com profile] perseid, I feel CONFLICTED by this! CONFLICTED!

HUGS? PLEASE?!

*PUTS HEAD IN MICROWAVE*



Seriously though, their pronunciation isn't that bad, and having U as their spear head into the Chinese market is a very good strategic move. Also, having 2 members being able to speak Chinese makes life slightly easier for the whole group, and probably helps quite a bit when it comes to learning the language for the rest of the members. What I want to know is if SJM will reach the level of success and sophistication like DBSK and the Japanese market.

My hormones are all over the place.

Gods, I'm going to miss them; Eric, Dong Wan and Min Woo are enlisting for the military this year, and this will be the last time the six of them will be performing as Shinhwa for at least 2 years. I await for your 9th album with much anticipation and glee.

[livejournal.com profile] perseid, DBSK's new single - Beautiful You is out! I want more Yoochun and Yunho in DBSK's singles. Also, Yunho has gained weight, YAY! He looks so much better with a bit more weight as opposed to how he looked last year. Also, Yoochun's hair remind me of a puppy.

I just woke up from a four hour nap, had some delicious cheese and sundried tomatoes on crackers, and feel awesome! Spent the long weekend cleaning; there was vacuuming, dusting and moving of furniture. I spent 8 hours shifting dressers, cabinets and wardrobes my friends, old wooden wardrobes that had to be unpacked completely to be moved and then repacked once it is pushed, pulled and lifted to its new location, which was on the other side of the house. The upside; I now have much more space in my room, new furniture and I’m almost 100% sure that I have gotten rid of my cockroach problem. Also had dinner with the boyfriend’s parents in a swanky restaurant, gamed, and finally spent some much needed time on my computer watching youtube clips of DBSK. In conclusion, I have had a highly productive and awesome weekend.

And now I go off to watch Children of Men with dad.

ETA: And the following is why fangirls think members of Korean pop bands are GHEI for each other! I mean they kiss, hug and stuff in front national television. Oh, SuJu, never change!



ETA 2: Skinship basically sounds like what it says; physical contact between individuals. It is often encouraged in Asian countries between people of same sex; it is sign of deeper friendship and affection. Except you know, I swear the Korean boy bands really push it to the limits, on the one hand I think it is because they are that comfortable with each other, on the other hand I think they are doing it for the fanservice, either way it often generates some big reactions.

EEE! DBSK! EEEE!

OMFG! DBSK's first life performance of Purple Line in Korea!! OMFG!

[livejournal.com profile] perseid, are you WATCHING THIS?! AND IF YOU ARE NOT, YOU MUST! RIGHT NOW! OK, I like the song much more in KOREAN! OMFG! EEEE! EEEE! They LOOK so damn HAPPY! The only thing I don't like - WHY ARE THEY LIPSYNCHING?! It isn't as if they haven't performed the song LIVE in Japan. Sometime, Korea confuses me.

Korean pop bands - DBSK, Super Junior

  • Feb. 24th, 2008 at 2:00 PM
naanima: ([DBSK] OH!)
So, I have been informed that I've been rather, um, Supernatural focused, so, to show that I still LOVE my Korean boy bands with an obsessive dedication, I'll dedicate this post to DBSK and the SuJu boys.

About 2 weeks ago DBSK (Dong Bang Shin Gi (동방신기 - Rising Gods of the East), a 5 member acapella/boyband, returned to Korea to star on NUMEROUS variety shows, many a fangirl expired at the thought, for all of us has missed the boys on Korean variety shows. There is a certain level of crack that the boys never manage to reach on Japanese variety shows. There are many reasons as to why I adore them enough that I was contemplating naming my first born after certain members (shut up [livejournal.com profile] perseid, I have passed that stage, kind of) I love them; for one they can actually sing. In fact I got addicted to their songs well before I ever saw them perform, and their performance of Rising Sun pretty much blew me away, and there was just no looking back. Despite their success they are still so damn humble, and considering their average age is 21 I think it is just an amazing thing. I LOVE them to bits because they are honestly nice people yet still manages to be such big dorks!

For the MOST AWESOME OF PIMP POST on DBSK. There are PICTURE, VIDEOS, and SO MUCH MORE!!

Tohoshinki (their name in Japan) on HEY!HEY!HEY! there is Talking and an AWESOME performance of Purple Line, their #1 Oricon chart single.

Purple Line Rehearsal because they ARE DORKS, and decide to do a few moves of Tell Me song done by a GIRL GROUP! I LOVE them LOADS.

Or just go HERE, LOTS of current DBSK stuff.

Super Junior, the 13 (possibly 14, because of the violinist, don't ask) member boyband, just had their FIRST official concert, and OMFG! I am stupidly HAPPY for them. Considering the amount of crap they had to deal with to have this concert, this is EPIC! First, it was Heechul being involved in a car accident that left him with a metallic nail that spans the length of his WHOLE thigh, then it was the car accident in April 2007 involving 4 of their members that left 2 of them heavily injured; Leeteuk had 170 stitches, and KyuHyun suffered from a fractured hip, and pneumothorax from fractured ribs. He has only really begun to recover later/early this year, and everytime I see him performing I get stupidly TEARY.

For a cool PIMP POST on SUJU go HERE! This is more sharing of LOOT; profiles, pictures and music!!!

And ANOTHER SUJU PIMP POST!!! MUCH Youtube LINKS! There are so MUCH JEWELS here!!! AHAHAHAHAHA!

Or just go HERE, LOTS of current SuJu stuff.

The truth is that my LOVE for them CANNOT be TEXTUALLY RENDERED! Also, consider this an EDUCATIVE post on the study of ANOTHER CULTURE, because d00ds, seriously, there are other forms of media-entertainment beside English. OK, so the eye candy goodness help quite a bit, but sometime I just want my pretty hairless boys. And if they are talented? All the better for it!

2008 - DBSK's year.

DBSK has made it into the The United World Chart at #19 in sales for their album T beating individuals such as Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Celine Dion. They sold 52,000 copies, now they just need to sustain the level of sale for another, oh 10 weeks or so to make a lasting impression.

Also, last week (I think), it was confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records that DBSK had the biggest official fan club - over 800,000 active members. I'm impressed.

It was YunHo's birthday yesterday; leader-shii's fans are insanely organised; they bought him many expensive presents. Amongst the insanely awesome present there is a New Mac Pro, 2 LCD monitors, laptop and food. I'm both impressed and slightly scared at the level of organisation and fund-raising ability of DBSK's fans. They would make excellent fund-raisers for politicians.
