Of Lee Seung Gi and the Gumiho

I don’t usually play around with my blog, I am just contented with posting stuff about Asian music. But today, I think I’ve done the best revamping my blog has seen since the time I started it! And I am indeed very pleased!

Very pleased because I have now made Lee Seunggi as the header of my blog. And the picture that you see is one of my favorites. If you watch 2 days and 1 night, I’m pretty sure you will recognize this picture! The angel without wings.

So why suddenly Lee Seunggi. One I have been constantly reminded of him in my class! Most of my students like him a lot, especially the women! He is the perfect husband they say!Oh yes, our Seunggi is a kind soul. He’s not just kind, he is smart and he can sing and he does best at everything he does. I sound like a crazed fan… but I think I am. I am a certified Airen! for those who does not know, that’s the name of his fan club!

Another reason why I thought of him when making my header was because finally (after ages and ages of waiting!) My Girlfriend is a 9 Tailed Fox is going to be shown on TV!! Well TV in my country that is. True I have seen the drama, but I can’t wait to see it again, though this time I won’t be hearing his voice because it would be dubbed. But at least it will be shown in the TV network I prefer. So I am confident it will be dubbed properly (bato bato sa langit ang tamaan wag magalit).

I saw the promotional clip and I can’t wait for it. Though I am guessing it will be shown during a very late timeslot (I hope it replaces My Princess.. kk sorry). I think I will be watching out from me. Anything to see my favorite Hoi Hoi couple.

So why this drama and not My Princess, well there’s Lee Seunggi and then there’s No Min Woo for one (oh the biases here they come!). But kidding aside, I like the story because it was a different Gumiho story. I’ve had my fair share of seeing Gumiho stories in Kdramas, but none would compare to the love story found in this drama. Though it seemed predictable at first, I mean we know Dae Woong (the human) would fall for the lovable Gumiho, but at the latter part there were puzzles you had to discover to understand the whole plot. This drama worked for me just fine! Oh and not to mention the OST! Love the songs, especially the Gumiho teardrops song, makes me feel a little sentimental.

And who would ever forget this song! Losing My Mind

Lee Seunggi joahaeyo saranghaeyo! kk

So I’ll stop here.. gotta go back to watching 2 days and 1 night and more Lee Seunggi! kk

Lagi – Kiss Jane

My Princess is getting very popular in my country. A lot of my friends have been watching the dubbed version on TV (that’s how they show Kdramas on TV). I have been telling them not to be too thrilled with it because they might get disappointed. Well that happened to me! I loved how cute Song Seung Hoon and Kim Tahee‘s characters but by god I couldn’t stand watching a very predictable drama. But blame it on their cuteness, I endured watching all 16 episodes. (ok I will stop yapping now)

Most often than not, when a new Kdrama is being promoted in my country, they have choose a song that would fit it. Goong was a very good example. They used the song If We Fall in Love, and later on made a local version Perhaps Love (Sarangingayo). Then they made a music video from the clips of the drama and advertise it. Ergo, people like the music and the clips so people watch the drama. And this is why My Princess is getting popular. They used the song Lagi (which means always) put some cute clips (can you just be the princess of my heart.. cheesy! but it sounds more cheesy when dubbed) — and voila you get people hooked to the drama! Well they are in for a big surprise (or is it?).

Anyway I am posting the song Lagi by Kiss Jane, not because of the drama. I just wanted to burst my thought bubble thus you see those words above! I love Kiss Jane and  I love the song and that’s why I’m posting it. The song lyrics tells about a girl who has a crush on someone and suddenly he occupies her thoughts all the time. It’s a common theme for a song, and if I am not mistaken the cutesy tone of this song maybe the number one reason for getting picked to be the theme of My Princess.. and I think it worked! kk

Lyrics Anyone??

Lagi – Kiss Jane

Sa tuwing ika’y nakikita
Anung saya
pag lumapit na kausap sya
natutulala
ibang iba ang nadarama
anung kaba
aaminin ko na

Chorus:
Sayo na lagi na lang
lagi na lang
lagi kang nasa isip ko
lagi na lang
lagi na lang
lagi na lang kang nasa puso

Ko’y iyong iyo
hindi hahayaan na
masaktan
asahan mo na di
magbabago
hanggang kailan
ibang iba ang nadarama
anung kaba
aaminin ko na

sayo na lagi na lang
lagi na lang
lagi kang nasa isip ko
lagi na lang
lagi na lang
lagi na lang kang nasa puso
lagi na lang
lagi na lang

Chorus:
Sayo na lagi na lang
lagi na lang
lagi kang nasa isip ko
lagi na lang
lagi na lang
lagi na lang kang nasa puso ko
lagi na lang
lagi na lang

L.O.V.E Girl – CN Blue

While I was on hiatus from the blog, CN Blue has released their new single Intuition. I know rock will always be my ultimate favorite genre of music (but sigh I don’t get too much of that kind of music with Kpop) , but this song wasn’t doing it for me. Maybe because it sounded like I’m a Loner.

But but but… I am elated that they released this single! It’s called L.O.V.E Girl.

Me likey the song. Why? Because it has the certain CN Blue sound but in a different song. It’s a rock song, but you can dance to it at the same time. But not those girl group dances.. kk.. It’s also a new sound for them because you can hear the drums more. It has hints of a 1960’s  rock song… a little bit like Beatles sound… And boy am I happy when I heard a Jongshin bass guitar solo! He deserves recognition for his talent!

But the video wasn’t really doing for me. Yes, it was nice to see gominam boys (and I have to say all of them looked so fresh in this video). But, how can she not see them!! Girl there’s a man beside your fridge in broad daylight!! Couldn’t you see him?? Ok I might be convinced if she really couldn’t see them all throughout the video, but she did see them at the end.. hmm ok so suddenly she sees them at the end of the video… weird! But anyway this is a music video so anything could happen… so I’d better leave it that way!

But I really recommend this song!! ^_^
