Nice Guy (차칸남자) Teaser is Out!

I have work tomorrow but that does not stop me from posting this! I should really be going to bed now!

But OMG!!! The trailer for Song Joongki‘s new drama is out.. actually it was posted 2 days ago! Grrr.. I should have checked my youtube subscriptions!

OMG! OMG!! I can’t imagine him playing a bad guy! (sorry for all the exclamation marks, but as you can see I’m very very excited!)

Song Joongki will be playing the lead character Maru in the drama 차칸남자 (Nice Guy). His role will be a good guy who was betrayed by his girlfriend in the past. He decides to change his ways to become a bad guy and get his revenge. His co-actors for this drama are Moon Chae-won and Park Shi-yeon. Oh and by the way, this is the drama where Lee Gwangsoo (from Running Man) is casted too.

Like I said I really could not imagine him being a bad guy! Maybe because his roles in the past required him to be the cute guy.. who at times can be serious (oh Yeorim how we miss you!). But this will be a first and I am quite excited to see the different side to him. This would prove his ability as an actor! I’m not very sure though about Moon Chae-won. I am not very quite convinced with her roles in the past. But you never know maybe it would change.

But I can’t wait for it for this drama..  I can’t wait for Song Joongki’s transformation….

Nice Guy will be premiering after Gaksital.

Uncommitted – Junsu (Xia) — with lyrics

Finally Junsu has released a slow song. I have been waiting for this! And boy oh boy was I surprised when the ballad is all in English!

It’s Junsu‘s Uncommitted.

The Video

I actually saw the video when it was released last week, but I never had the time to write about it. When I saw it, my first impression was that they are trying to show Junsu’s sexy side not the cute side we were used to seeing back then. But though I am still not over the cute Xia face, I think it’s good that they are trying to sell the mature side of him.. like a statement that he is all grown up now.

The video actually works for me. Although, I wanted to tell all those girls to get their hands off him! haha.. anyway, that’s the crazy fan talking and not me writing! This video works because it shows in that he is a player and he likes to party ergo he doesn’t want to settle down ergo the message of the song. I think the part where he was arguing with the girl signals the message of the song.

The Song

I like the song, especially the tune. It has a very western feel to it. Not very common in Korean ballads / slow songs. If it wasn’t him singing, I would have thought that this song was from a foreign artist.

But what brings me back to reality is the English! I know he is Korean, but if you plan to release a song in English, you have to make sure the words are understandable to someone who speaks/understands English. I understand perfect English but some of the parts.. let’s just say I’m not sure what I was hearing.  Although, Junsu’s English pronunciation skills have improved a lot… well that is if you compared it to how he sang in the past. But frankly, he still needs a bit more practice. There were parts in the song where the stress wasn’t right so I wasn’t sure what it was.

I think if CJES wants JYJ to breakthrough in the US, they would have to do what the Wonder Girls did, learn the language and the culture.

Anyway, if you were wondering what the lyrics is for this song here it is:

She said I couldn’t be committed
She said I’m too much of a player
Come on

Uncommitted
Uncommitted
Uncommitted
Ey, ey

It was all a dream
Reality was far from
the safe picture she painted for me
She told me I was the one and I believed
until the dream dissipated so suddenly

I don’t know why she was so compelled to leave
Something was messin’ with her psychology
I’m confused, she’s sayin’ something’s wrong with me,
But how can I fix something I cannot see?

She said, “You’re not ready
Baby, you’re not ready for the real thing”
She told me that I’d be
unfaithful and I cannot believe

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

How could this be, she’s telling me
I will never let her be my everything
She said I’m a player and I’ll never change
I feel that I’m ready to leave the game.

She said she could’ve never trusted a player like me
but baby that was part of my history
she’s telling me breaking hearts is a part of me
it’s like it’s in my system and it would never leave

She said, “You’re not ready
Baby, you’re not ready for the real thing”
She told me that I’d be
unfaithful and I cannot believe

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

I’m committed

Uncommitted, I’ll never admit it
and then i’ll never get it but somehow she could be right
Uncommitted, I’ll never admit it
and then i’ll never get it but somehow she could be right

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

Final Verdict: The video fits this very good song.. however as this song was sung all in English, they could have done better with the pronunciation.

Will You Marry Me… A Gentleman’s Dignity Style

Awwww… is so cute!!! I was jumping like crazy after I saw this!

It’s the proposal scene from A Gentleman’s Dignity.

I’m sure fans of this drama have see this scene already, but I just finished watching it last night! And this scene is so cute. I guess drama writers are now using ideas from proposals popular on the internet!

But this was is so cute!! And they chose such a perfect song for this part! I love love love this song! It makes the situation more romantic. And how cute it is to see the other members of F44 dance! (If you haven’t watched the drama, A Gentleman’s Dignity lets us take a peek at the lives of four men in their 40s.) I think Kim Min Jong nailed it, but he is after all a singer so I think he is capable of doing that! Kim So Ro!!! waaaa..  being adorkable! If Jang Donggun danced that would have been icing on the cake, but I guess his character would not permit it.. sigh 😦 (i just want to see him dance! lol)

The only problem I had with this scene was Kim Ha Neul’s reaction to the proposal. It was not so convincing though.. shouldn’t you look both happy and surprise at the same time, just like all those proposals we see on the internet?? Where’s the feeling girl?

Anyhow… this drama was a fun one to watch.. a breather from all those usual F4s (the younger ones). We will always remember the F44!
