Romeo n Juliet – Clazziquai

Another Korean show that I am currently watching is We Got Married. Its a somewhat like a reality/variety show where two celebrities pretend to be married couples. A friend of mine recommended I watch it, but I never got to it as I was watching other dramas. But now I am, but I have to admit the reason why I’m watching it is so to see Kim Hyun Joong :D.

I just started watching it this week and I’m currently (as of this moment) in the 8th episode (a lot more to go!!!). In this episode, there was a part where Alex and his “wife” Shin Ae did a duet. The song they did is called Romeo N Juliet and its one of the tracks from Clazziquai’s (which Alex is member of)  album Love Project of the Century. This is my favorite track from this album so I am going to share it. Since I can’t use imeem to share the video (there are some restrictions on wordpress), I found this video on youtube, thanks to killjadeskye (its actually just the audio).

Romeo n Juliet (Translation)

The meaning of the feeling that comes upon me when you’re looking at me
And the scent I’ve left behind For something else, there’s a different feeling
How when you’re eyes are still closed but you can still see everything
I wonder if your whole entire day was still beautiful without me
*What makes me cry, of having to break up with you
Don’t speak of such sad things
So that you and me alone can remain in this beautiful state
In this world my days and your nights oversee a similar ending baby lover,
Let’s close our eyes together
**give it up give it up
can you see the light give it up give it up
there ain’t no one here
give it up give it up
it’s our only way can you see the light in me
give it up give it up don’t be scared my love
give it up give it up there’ll be song for you
give it up give it up let the flowers rejoice
can you see the light in me
Though inside me, my heart has basically been chaotic this time
I’ve found my path for the first time
If on another morning we were together again
While clasping the whole world in my arms
I would’ve given everyone that kind of happiness as a gift
What made me cry, of how I had broken up with you
Don’t speak such saddening words
So that you and me alone can remain in that once beautiful state
In this world My days, your nights are facing the same end baby lover, We fall asleep together
*Rap* Keep holding my hand, holding my hand
We fall into a deep sleep You just need to let your body loose,
let it loose The heart-breaking love ends now I want fall asleep while embracing you,
oh I will know Everything you could ever desire,
I want to them all to you, oh The reason why this night lingers is only because we believe in love
The sadness that conceals us each moment and the deep darkness
You just have to hope, You just have to hope
As long as we do better As long as I’m the one who’s loving you
When the aromatic scent of your respiration touches me
I held onto your hand discreetly I want to close my eyes
Feel it, you and I Now the wind is free to go wherever it pleases
When everything else is turned free And when it’s love

Recommended Drama – Hana Kimi (Japanese)

I haven’t posted any recommended dramas in awhile. So while I was doing nothing, I decided it was time to put yet another recommended drama to my blog. This time, I’m recommending the Japanese live action version of the manga Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (For You in Full Bloom), or more commonly known as Hana Kimi.

hana kimi

Synopsis

This drama was based on a manga of the same title. The drama is about a girl, Ashiya Mizuki, a Japanese girl from the U.S, who enrolls in all boys school, Osaka Gakuen, to be close to Sano Izumi, a high jumper whom she idolizes. She disguises herself as a boy. The drama tells of her adventures being in an all boys school — she is trying her best to keep her identity. She also is trying her best to keep the true reason for her being in the school is not only to be with her idol but because she wants to repay Sano because she blames herself for the accident that happened to him (oops, that was a spoiler).

The drama starred Horikita Maki (Innocent Love) as Ashiya Mizuki, Oguri Shun (Hana Yori Dango) as Sano Izumi and Ikuta Toma (Honey and Clover, Maou) as Nakatsu. Mizushima Hiro is also in this drama playing the head of the dormitory (Nanba Minami) where Ashiya, Sano and Nakatsu are staying.

Why I liked it?

This is probably the funniest drama that I have seen. Its like watching an anime that came to life. I couldn’t stop laughing – there was never a boring episode. Though there were times when the story was a bit serious, but still you’d end up laughing. This is the most entertaining (so far) drama that I have seen.

Oguri’s character was a serious one except for the part when Nakatsu and Sano had a contest for Ashiya’s “love” – but it was  fun to watch. Horikita Maki did good with this drama too, she even won a best actress award for it. But my favorite of all the characters has to be Nakatsu! Ikuta Toma did justice to this character. I especially loved the monologue scenes — Nakatsu talking to himself with matching hand gestures. It was funny watching him blush (though I know computer graphics were added to it) everytime Nakatsu comes in contact with Ashiya. This to me is one of the best roles done by Ikuta Toma.

The soundtrack of the drama is also a good one. I loved the ending theme – Peach by Ai Otsuka (see my previous entries for the video and lyrics of this song). It was a fun song!

There is a Taiwanese version of this drama called Hua Yang Shao Nian Shao Nu. It starred Ella of S.H.E and Jiro Wang and Wu Zun of Fahrenheit. I saw the the Taiwanese version first. It was funny. But if I compare both dramas, I think I liked the Japanese version better. 😀

This is a much watch drama!

Oh and by the way just a trivia, check out the picture that I posted above — Ikuta Toma is not part of the picture (in the picture in the drama, he is supposedly on beside Horikita Maki, on the left). That’s because there is some copyright stuff if he is in the picture.
