It’s ITZY 있지! And they’re 달라 (Different)

Nowadays in Kpop, I don’t really pay much attention to new groups debuting as there are just too many! Honestly, this unnie couldn’t keep up (yep age is kicking in). About a few days ago, I met with a fellow Kpop enthusiast and she was fawning over JYP’s new girl group.

“Unnie you really have to listen to them. They’re absolutely different! And I know you will love them unnie – you will be reminded of the Kpop era you like. Also unnie 2 of them were part of the BTS film we watched!”, she said.

I didn’t know whether to laugh or to be insulted but what she said was absolutely true. I am an old-school 1st/2nd generation Kpop fan and I do miss Kpop music from 2007-2011. These days I don’t watch music shows much like I did before (and like you I used to record them! and I never got bored even if the artists performed the same dance and the same song each week) and I am more contented just listening to iTunes or Spotify for the latest Kpop songs. But because this dongsaeng recommended this group – I decided to check them out.

The new girl group that I am talking about is ITZY 있지. A five member girl group of JYP that officially debuted on February 12, 2019. Their debut song 달라달라 was published on Youtube on 10th of February.

I don’t know much about the girls yet so this post will be a little bit of a review of their song and their image.

Debut Song: 달라달라

Their song is called 달라달라. It’s spelled as a word. I don’t exactly know if there is a significance about this, but with my limited Korean, I do know that 달라 means different.

Honestly, I was almost put off by the songs introduction. It reminded me too much of Meghan Trainor’s “Me Too” – those drum / bass sounds. When I got past that, it started to sound better. I think it was the chorus that saved it for me as well as the parts at the end because it reminded me of Wonder Girls / Miss A songs. I played it about 2 more times and I was hooked.

The lyrics and message of the song was also a bit refreshing. I have nothing against other Kpop girl group songs but in the recent year or so, most of them would either talk about love or heartbreak or something related to boys. So this song’s lyrics is nice as it’s all about being different and loving oneself (we have BTS to thank for starting this trend). And their lyrics reminds me so much of my dear 2NE1s songs. Gosh I miss them the most.

It’s nice to have these kind of songs once in awhile. After all there’s nothing most important that loving oneself before extending that love to others (BTS you did this to me!)

This song is catchy and definitely different as from current releases. And the more I listen to it, I don’t even mind it’s similarity with Me Too.

The Girl Group

From the Information I can find on the internet, this 5 girl group is indeed really young. The oldest was born in 2000 while their maknae (youngest) in 2003. Since the debuted early, it would mean more time for them in the industry to promote.

In terms of visuals, I think the ladies have got the looks. I still cannot distinguish who’s who – might take sometime but I can see one girl looks a lot like Irene (Red Velvet), while another reminds me so much so Sohee from Wonder Girls.

I like that the concept that they are going for is the strong, fierce, independent woman type. It’s been awhile since 2NE1 has promoted this kind of concept. It is indeed refreshing in the overly cuteness we see in Kpop groups promoting these days.

My dongsaeng wasn’t lying when she said that the group would indeed remind of my favorite kpop groups of yore. Watching them is like watching the powers of Wonder Girls and Miss A combined together. Oh how I miss those groups. They had Wonder Girls charm with a dash of strong independent woman concept of Miss A (when they did Good Girl, Bad Girl). If you’re an old soul like me – you would get what I’m saying. They’re concept is really different.

In terms of talent – maybe for now it’s a little difficult to tell. It’s way too early. But I do get the feeling that they would stand out especially with their strong debut. As of writing this blog the MV already was viewed 46M times. As for their debut – I’m a bit happy about it because to me they delivered.

Conclusion

As an old Kpop fan – I find Itzy refreshing and now in my eyes, they stand out a lot! That’s why I mentioned in the title of this post that they are different. I haven’t posted in a long time about Kpop debuts because for the past few years, they all had the same. I sincerely hope that this concept and the songs they choose in the future will remain that of a strong, fierce, independent woman.

You have just garnered an unnie fan.

(Side Note: And this is truly the time when I miss 2NE1 the most. Sigh)

BLACKPINK Concert: In Your Area Seoul – Day 2

So when I saw the post of BlackPink on their IG Page that they will have a concert, I screaaammmed because:

  1. My sister and I were planning to travel to South Korea
  2. It’s BlackPink 1st Concertttttt in South Korea
  3. Ticket Price is not so $$$

There ticket price is 110,000 won. An is available in an auction ticketing site. Link Here

If you haven’t booked a Concert Ticket on an Auction site (or in any other site) here are Tips!

  1. Sign Up & Log In. It was my first Kpop concert and that meant that it would be my first time booking a ticket. When the time the tickets open I clicked the Buy Button but I was informed to sign up 😦  so there was a slight delay when I bought the tickets. So it’s really important to sign up first, then Log In before the ticket opening. Well, for a group that has A LOT of fans, it is really important to be fast so you can have that concert slot you want so badly.
  2. Click that Buy Button when the clock hits the time — as in — Press and choose your slot. I clicked the button on time, but I was shocked when slots are getting fewer.
  3. Keep Calm. Believe – You’re definitely going to get that ticket (wink wink) 😀
  4. Make sure you have your card handy – You will use this in buying your ticket.
  5. Select Your Preferred Seat 
  6. Don’t Overthink and Pay that ticket! – Well don’t overthink. If you really want it, YOU WANT IT!

 

The concert event…

November 11, 2018

The concert I have long been anticipating for!

I was so excited because it’s my very first K-Pop concert. I really (literally) felt the butterflies in my stomach, I can’t hide my excitement!!! The concert was held at Olympic Stadium. There were Blackpink merchandise being sold at the venue, we bought our Lightsticks @ 20,000 won.

In all fairness their opening .. is so Lit!

Opening Video Below:

Sharing my video. PS: Don’t mind my background voice 😛

Other says that BlackPink only has 9 songs – How can they handle a concert. Nahh-ah the concert was 2 hrs+ Enough for you to Enjoy!

They performed (Not In Order) :
1. Ddu-ddu-du
2. Stay
3. Sure Thing
4. Kiss and Make Up w/ Choreography
5. Jisoo Solo – Clarity

– Jisoo is the non english speaker in the group. But she sings Clarity so well on English and Korean language. What a voice! Soo Pretty.

6. Lisa – So Hot Dance Number

– I screamed during the “almost kissing” scene. HAHAHA. Lisa! your father is watching. But Really, I never saw anybody dance like Liza. So Hot Hot. Seriously though, her father was at the concert 😀

7. Rose – Angelic Voice ..

– I really love the voice of Rose and she is my Bias. By the time she opened her mouth to sing I really felt goosebumps all over my body. What an angel.

8. Jennie – Performed her Solo Album

– Jennie’s album was released on Nov. 12 and the concert was on Nov. 11. I was not really expecting that they would show the Full Music Video during the concert, like I was so happy that I’m one of the many who saw it first. And Jennie also performed it at the concert, so YAY!! She is so hot, pretty a total performer.

9. So Hot
10. Boombayah
11. Playing with Fire
12. Whistle
13. Zion T (Guest) – He Sings. I didn’t know him. But Korean fans cheered for him so loud.
(Don’t hate me – I really did enjoy the song)

14. Really
15. Forever Young
16. They even have a dance performance, Four of them SLAYED IT as usual.

The audience/fans also sang along during the chorus part of Forever Young and Stay. I’m one of them who sang. And that’s the nicest way of showing love. Go Go Blinks.

Jisso and Rose post it in Their IG Page.

Rose IG Post

Jisoo IG Post

Stay was one of there closing performance, and Jennie was crying maybe because she was overwhelm by the love of the fans, or maybe because it was the last day the InYourAreaSeoul Concert. I Feel You Jennie.. ;(

Conclusion :

You know they say : “Life so short, so buy that Concert ticket!” It doesn’t matter if you have the VIP or The General Admission ticket, the Important thing is you got to experience the music of your favorite group LIVE!!!1
It’s really a experience different when you see it live – to cheer for them with your lungs out! Seeing them in person even if your far away.

And one thing I noticed with the Korean fans is that they cheer peacefully (which I realized is a nicest way). HAHHAHA. I mean when you compare them with the PH fans. (peace) – don’t hate me 🙂

One thing that I can say is that IT IS SO MUCH FUN!!
Blinks! It’s time to buy your concert tickets now 🙂

Morissette Amon’s Resignation (체념) Cover (with lyrics)

Annyeong! 🙂
I haven’t posted posted for quite some time – but it’s good to be back in the blogsphere.

While I was gone, I noticed that there were a lot of hits with an old lyrics post for the song 체념 or Giving Up / Resignation by Big Mama. After googling, I found out that this was sung by Morisette Amon about a month ago in Asia’s Song Festival. I feel kinda bad that I just noticed this now. She is probably one of the best Filipino singers currently – I love her. And I am a bit biased because she comes from the same Philippine province as me! Cebu represent!!!

But hey – better late than never.

So – she sang the song in English. I am kind of guessing that visitors to that post came because of the English lyrics. However, the lyrics posted there were from a translation way back. It’s not the same as her version. So because I LOVE HER (A LOT!), I decided to transcribe it. I do hope I got the lyrics right 🙂

Here are the lyrics to her version:

Resignation (체념) – Morissette Amon cover

I was happy those times I spent with you
Even though it was so hard for you
It’s not that I didn’t know how you felt in your heart
I felt it too.

Letting go, letting you leave it all behind
It’s something I just cannot get used to
You have hurt me so
And I just can’t help but fall away from you

Why’d you not tell me or you just could not?
Did you ever think of everything I feel?
You fell for me and said you loved me
But you just let me fall and never tried to catch me at all

Should I hate you and try to just forget?
Should I blame myself and live with this regret?
If I could only do it all again, I would turn back time
Back when I was yours and you were still mine

Why’d you not tell me or you just could not?
Did you ever think of everything I feel?
You fell for me and you loved me
But you just let me fall and never tried to catch me at all

Should I hate you and try to just forget?
Should I blame myself and live with this regret?
If I could only do it all again, I would turn back time
Back when I was yours and you were still mine

No, I won’t ask anymore
If you want to walk out that door
Just leave, leave and don’t look back
No, I won’t shed any tear and keep on hoping that you’re still here
I watch you walk away from me and it’s getting hard to see
We we’re never meant to be

Neol manhi geuriweohal geot gata chamayaman hagetji ijhyeojil su itdorok
Dashin saranggateungeo haji anheulrae
Nae majimak sarangeul doraseon neoege jugo shipeoseo
Haengbokhagil barae naboda jo-eun yeoja mannagireul

Totally Enjoying Forever Young by BLACKPINK

BLACKPINK just released their new mini-album SQUARE UP. And while everyone is talking about the title track 뚜두뚜두 (DDU-DU DDU-DU), I decided to write about the second single from the mini-album Forever Young.

I did enjoy listening to the title track, but every time I listen to Blackpink’s Square Up, my heart is with FOREVER YOUNG.

 

Why I like it?

I have to be honest, my first impression of the title track 뚜두뚜두 was kind of mixed – I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not. Mixed probably because it was different from Blackpink’s music in the last year. I mean if you listen to Boombayah and As If It Was Your Last (마지막처럼) it’s different. But the more you listen to it the more the rhythm sinks in – the more you like it.

However, I think Forever Young is more the sound of the Blackpink I know and like. It’s more familiar to my ears. I am not saying it’s not a good thing to have a change in style. I actually think that it’s more advantageous to be more versatile in music – to not just have one style. But I’m someone who need time getting used to something that’s new. Also, Forever Young is more my kind of music – I’ve always preferred upbeat hits when it comes to Kpop groups.

Lyrics to the songhttps://genius.com/Blackpink-forever-young-lyrics

Square Up has been anticipated by a lot of fans. I’m not a Blink – Sorry Blackpink but I will always be a Blackjack by heart – but I am kind of disappointed that YG only made a mini-album for them. I mean it’s been 2 years since they’ve debuted – I think they deserved a full length 10-12 track album by now. Four songs are not enough for their fans. But then again – this is YG’s style (remember how many mini-albums Big Bang had before they had a full length one?).

Anyway, here’s a link to Blackpink’s title track: 뚜두뚜두 (DDU-DU DDU-DU)

And here’s a playlist to their Square Up mini-album in case you’re interested to listen to it

Happy Listening!

I’ve Just Discovered BTS… and… I get why fans adore them

Truth be told I am an old soul when it comes to Kpop. I became a fan back in 2008 when DBSK / Super Junior / Wonder Girls / Big Bang ruled the industry. Back then I could recognize the idol group, their members and name their songs.

I have been out of sync with the Kpop world for a few years and when I started listening to Korean music, I cannot by the life of me, recognize the artist or their songs anymore. In the past 4 years, it’s amazing how the Korean music industry grew. It’s even more accessible to the public now.

Anyway – going back to this post.

My friends have, for the longest time, been persuading me to listen and check out BTS방탄소년단). I just keep saying – I will soon. There was still a lot more of catching up to do for groups, singers and shows that I’ve shelved in the past 4 years. And then finally, last Saturday I had time to listen to BTS and… I am MINDBLOWN! (Don’t believe check out this week’s Spotify playlist -it’s BTS baby!) 

I’ve just discovered BTS – and I absolutely get why fans adore them.

If you didn’t know yet, this is BTS:

7 (handsome and charming) boys who debuted in 2013
– who are now taking the world by storm!

I still couldn’t recognize who is who (sorry – this eonni’s memory is not so good anymore). But their names are Jin, J-Hope, RM (formerly Rap Monster), Suga, Jimin, V and Jungkook. Honestly, I only know V (because I saw him on Celebrity Bromance and his friendship with Bogum) and RM (because I saw him on a show rapping).  For their extensive profile, check this link: BTS Profile.

I’ve just discovered them but I adore them because:

Their songs are different!

Kpop is a genre that I love – but one reason why I refrained from listening in the past years is because they’ve become too CUTE and too similar. Don’t get me wrong – I still listen to some of them – Twice’s Cheer Up and IOI’s Very Very Very are some of my new found favorites. I guess there was a time when the industry just followed the cutesy trend.

But listening to BTS – I found their songs different from the norms. Their songs were definitely more edgy. It kind of gave me Epik High / Big Bang / Block B vibes – something I think this industry should have more. It was pop – but definitely had hip hop tones. I could listen to their songs all day.

My top 3 songs would have to be:

Spring Day  (봄날)
(I absolutely die when they say bogoshipda. I am a sucker for songs that sound like this. It reminds me of Kpop songs circa 2010-2012)

Blood Sweat and Tears (피 땀 눈물)
(By far, the one with the best beat for me. Makes you want to bob your head up and down)

Just One Day (하루만) 
(It’s more pop than hip hop but I like the rap. It’s one of their earliest tracks.)

Their Greeting

In an industry where competition is fierce, a groups greeting should (1) be distinct and (2) recognizable so people can easily remember it. Super Junior has mastered this with their “Orinuen Super Juni – O – R” greeting.

BTS’s “Bang Tan” with its matching hand gesture is one greeting that is recognizable and distinct from others. And I love how simple the greeting is – and because of it’s simplicity it can be changed to different languages – while sounding the same… don’t believe me – check out the video below and listen to the English and Japanese versions.

BTS A.R.M.Y

A group is only as strong as their fandom – I am a firm believer of this. The support the fans give a group fuel a group’s performance.  I should know being part of a fandom that has been existing for years (E.L.F).  So I cannot not notice the group’s fanbase.

BTS is blessed with what I could consider as a great fandom. If there is one word that I could use to describe BTS A.R.M.Y (an acronym for Adorable Representative MC for Youth) it would be DAEBAK!

Fans are instrumental for the rise of a group. I commend how well they support BTS – especially through fan projects. I love it when fans do something like this:

I’ve just discovered BTS and I truly get why their fans adore them.

I still have a lot of catching up to do these boys and their music – but I have definitely become a fan and I cannot wait for them to be on the Late Late Show!!!

Super Junior 슈퍼주니어 Black Suit MV Teaser

Countdown to Super Junior  슈퍼주니어 comeback: D-5.

I got a message earlier today on LINE reminding me of Super Junior’s comeback. Just a few days more to go.

That message also told me that they’ve just released the first Teaser Video of Black Suit‘s MV.  When that message came, I was out with friends, I couldn’t wait to watch it. Now fast forward to (an agonizing) 12 hours later, I finally get to see it.

Looking at the video, I cannot help but think how mature they’ve grown after their respective military services. It’s often said by several artists in the past that military service brings a change in them. Maybe it’s just probably me, but somehow, there is something more manly in the way they project themselves now.

There must be some story in the MV as each member is assigned a persona (the Security, the Appraiser, the Transporter, the Millionaire, the Client Representative, the Decoy and the host). I’m guessing it has something to do with transporting the all important Black suit somewhere – I mean there’s a decoy (Oh ye Hollywood, you’re making my imagination work!). Just a thought though – I’d wish Yesung’s Transporter had Jason Statham vibe. Yep, I’ve definitely been watching too many action movies!

There will be 2 more teasers released tomorrow and on the 3rd. And on November 6 (Suju’s anniversary) their 8th album will be released.

It’s a pity though that Siwon will not be able to participate during broadcast promotions (SM released a statement yesterday about this). As my bias, I was anticipating him being on music shows. It was sad to only have 7 of them participate in the album, now it makes me sadder that Siwon won’t be performing.  But although he will not be in the broadcasts, we can still catch him in his new drama Revolutionary Love.

It must be hard on the rest of the members. But I know they’re see it through
Now it’s up to us ELFs to show them our undying support!

Super Junior fighting! 슈퍼주니어 화이팅!!!

BlackPink in your Areaaa…

Raise your hand if you’re a BlackPink fan!

BlackPink
I am the type of person who loves music not by what it means but by its beat. I became an instant Blackpink fanatic when a friend of mine gave me a link on Spotify with all the Kpop Music, and while playing it I fell in love with Stay and Boombayah. Their music video is the bomb! The colors, the setup and everything is on point. All of the members are also good dancers and singers – you’d wish you’re part of their group! (dreaming) 😀

All of the members are pretty too <3. See below :

Lisa – Main Dancer ,  Lead Rapper , Sub Vocalist

Do you still love me? If you feel the same
Don’t leave today
Don’t ask why it has to be you
Just stay with me

(It goes a little something like)
Lalalalalala Lalalalalala Lalalalalala
Lalalalalala Lalalalalala Lalalalalala
I don’t expect a lot right now
Just stay with me

 

2. Boombayah

The way they deliver the word Oppa is the sexiest thing I’ve heard.

 

3. Whistle

Nahh, I’m just amaze by how it rhymes. (hahahaha)

 

4. Playing with Fire

(music)

To always be careful of guys
Because love is like playing with fire
I’ll get hurt

 

5. As If it’s your last

(music)

Baby nal teojil geotcheoreom anajwo
Geuman saenggakhae mwoga geuri eoryeowo
Geojitmalcheoreom kiss haejwo naega neoege

Majimakcheoreom mamamajimakcheoreom
Majimak bamin geotcheoreom love
Majimakcheoreom mamamajimakcheoreom
Naeil ttawin eopsneun geotcheoreom
(music)

English Translation:

Baby, hold me till I explode
Stop thinking, what’s so hard about this?
Kiss me like it’s a lie
As if I’m your last love

As if it’s the last, as, as, as if it’s the last
As if it’s the last night, love
As if it’s the last, as, as, as if it’s the last
As if there’s no tomorrow

There you go my BlackPink my loves. Comment below if you’re one of us. 😀

One More Chance (비처럼 가지마요) – Super Junior (MV)

It’s the perfect time to be for my Asian madness to come back! Perfect because my boys are making their comeback!!!!

I’ve been watching them on VLive for some time and I have been highly anticipating Super Junior’s 슈퍼주니어 new releases. Although it has been decided that their title track will be “Black Suit” (it was also my favorite among all those samples they’ve reviewed), they’ve release an MV ballad 비처럼 가지마요 (One More Chance).

I know Super Junior is mostly known for their dance tracks but I’m so much pleased that they’ve released a ballad first! In one of their VLives Heechul was convincing them to release a ballad – just like what Sechskies did. And I totally agree with him. This ballad shows the mature side of Super Junior. It’s high time that they release something like this – it’s time to tell the world that it’s not only Super Junior KRY who does the ballads!

Although it’s kind of sad that there will only be 7 members who will be making the comeback this time – it’s better than them not releasing at all. On the brighter side of things, having only 7 members participate in the comeback mean they get to showcase more of their singing chaps. I’m especially thrilled in that this song has Shindong singing lines – not just the adlibs (like he did for Bonamana). With the absences for Ryeowook and Kyuhyun (since both are in the army), Donghae, Siwon, Heechul and Leeteuk have longer parts. But it must be a burden for Yesung. I just wish Eunhyuk sang – but there has to be a rapper so that’s fine.

My boys have become so much cooler after their army days!

Now I can’t wait for their come back! Just a few days more! Super Junior fighting! 슈퍼주니어 화이팅!!!

Perhaps Love – Eric Nam and Cheeze (Lyrics)

Joy mentioned in her previous post that one of the reason why we are so KILIG for Kdramas is the OST. Each one of us has their own favorite. Mine – to this day – has always been  사랑인가요 (Perhaps Love) from the drama 궁 Goong (Princess Hours).

This OST has always made my heart flutter every time I hear it. It’s the first song that I learned to sing in Korean and it has always been a go-to noraebang song for me (because I know the lyrics by heart). Memorized much? you bet – since at that time I wasn’t able to read Hangeul yet.

I couldn’t recall of a remake of this song – and it hasn’t been sung much on Korean shows. However – early this year – March 24 to be exact, Eric Nam (에릭남) sang it in a show called Duet Song Festival.

Thank you Eric Nam and his duet partner for bringing LIFE. It has been so long since this song was played on broadcasts. I’m pretty sure that a lot of people aren’t familiar with the song. So for that THANK YOU  for  reintroducing this song to Kpop audiences again. [By the way – Eric Nam if you’re reading this, I’ve been a fan since your release of Heaven’s Door (천국의 문)].

Another reason to thank Eric Nam is because he released a track fro this song with Cheeze.

Although the video is quite short, but you can listen to this full track:

The song has a different vibe and style from the original one. The original one was a classic OST song, while this is a trendy one. I’m not really a fan of covers because at times they don’t give justice to the song. But with this cover – I’m not complaining (though Howl and J’s version would always remain a classic).

I’ve posted the lyrics to this song when I first started this blog (back when I didn’t know much what I was doing).  Because my obsessive compulsive tendencies on this blog are complaining, I’m re-posting lyrics for this song.

Perhaps Love – Translation

Since when has it been? I can’t remember…
When my head became dizzy with thoughts of you
Once or twice, these thoughts would pop up in my mind
I feel anxious as my heart opens more towards you
“It’s nothing”, “My heart is insignificant”
If I keep telling you, it would be – kind of awkward

Is it love? If you feel the same way, is it the beginning?
My heart keeps saying it loves you
It yells until the whole world can hear
Why has it taken so long for me to hear it?
We’ve finally met, Love has found us right now

I want to explain what’s in my heart now
(But) You’d have to become me, it’s the only way you’d feel it
I’m already inside you, as you’re inside me
With each other… (With each other)
Already, that we’ve been too familiar, we have no idea

Is it love? If you feel the same way, is it the beginning?
My heart keeps saying it loves you
It yells until the whole world can hear
Why has it taken so long for me to hear it?
We’ve finally met, Love has found us right now

If I try thinking about it, (If I try thinking about it)
At many moments,(At them)
How often did my heart flutter?
It might be a little late, but I’ll surely make it better

We’ll do it together, I’ll only give you memorable memories
Please don’t leave my side ever again
Even a shortest moments make me uneasy
Please stay with me
So much like this, (Much until that point)
I love you (Only you) already

사랑인가요 (Perhaps Love) – Hangeul

언제였던건지 기억나진 않아
자꾸 내 머리가 너로 어지럽던 시작
한 두번씩 떠오르던 생각
자꾸 늘어가서 조금 당황스러운 이 마음
별일이 아닐 수 있다고 사소한 마음 이라고
내가 네게 자꾸
말을 하는게 어색한걸

사랑인가요 그대 나와 같다면 시작인가요
맘이 자꾸 그댈
사랑한대요 온 세상이 듣도록 소리치네요
왜 이제야 들리죠 우 –
서롤 만나기 위해 이제야 사랑 찾았다고

지금 내 마음을 설명하려 해도
니가 내가 되어 맘을 느끼는 방법 뿐인데
이미 난 니안에 있는 걸
내 안에 니가 있듯이
우린 서로에게 (서로에게)
이미 길들여진지 몰라

사랑인가요 그대 나와 같다면 시작인가요
맘이 자꾸 그댈 사랑한대요
온 세상이 듣도록 소리치네요
왜 이제야 들리죠 우-
서롤 만나기 위해 이제야 사랑 찾았다고

생각해보면 (생각해보면)
많은 순간속에 (속에)
얼마나 많은 설레임 있었는지
조금 늦은 그 만큼 난
더 잘해 줄께요

함께 할께요 추억이 될 기억만 선물할께요
다신 내곁에서 떠나지 마요
짧은 순간조차도 불안한 걸요
내게 머물러줘요 우-
그댈 이렇게 많이 (그토록 많이)
사랑하고 있어요 (그대 하나만) 이미 –

6 Reasons Why Korean Drama Make us Kilig <3

Hi I’m Joy. I’m a fan of Kdrama and Kpop.
I’m currently into While You Were Sleeping & BlackPink.
I’ve always wanted to blog and so I couldn’t believe I’m posting my first post ever! Enjoy

——

First off let’s define Kilig!

** KILIG **
Noun:
– A sudden feeling of an inexplicable joy one gets when something romantic or idealistic occurs.

When a person is at the state of Kilig,  one may experience the following symptoms:
– butterflies in one’s stomach
– heart melting 
– shivers down one’s spine
irrepressible noises from one’s mouth
– uncontrollable smiling
– an inner conflict between hope of something wished for and reality

Here are 6 Reasons we think Korean Drama’s make us KILIG!

Reason #1 : Back Hug
Most of Korean Dramas have this action of affection. In my fangirling point of view back hugs not only made us kilig it made us smile and weep.

Here are my back hug favorite moments:
The Heirs
That time Kim Tan back hugs Cha Eun-Sang

Scarlet Heart: Ryeo
Who doesn’t love it when 4th Prince Wang So back hugs Hae Soo

Love In the Moonlight
Hong Ra-on back hugs Lee Yeoung (Oh Bogum.. your smile makes us melt)
love in the moonlight

I still have many back hug memories in my mind I can’t enumerate. 😀
What are your favorite? You can comment below. 😀

 

Reason #2 : Grab and Kiss

Ahhh, who could resist feeling kilig when your favorite love team do this in drama you love. Like you can screeaammm your lungs out because you could do nothing but to scream! Your first impression usually: it’s harsh for a guy to grab the girl, but then you’ll realize it is romantic that after he grab her he make her feel protected then will kiss her. Sometimes it is a sudden kiss that our heroine could do nothing but to close her eyes and feel the moment!

 

Reason #3 : Cold Outside but deep inside super inlove

Most, but not all of Kdramas I’ve seen, has it’s lead actor treat the heroine with coldness but this treatment will eventually change into love. Then towards the middle of the drama, this harsh guy will eventually become the knight of the shining armor of our lady in waiting. Isn’t it kilig? It’s like you feel emotional outburst —  butterflies in stomach you can’t handle.

Reason #4 : Cutie Actor

When they smile or wink or just simple gesture make our heart melting.

Lee Min Ho, Park Bo Gum, Ji Chang Wook, Kim Bum, Song Jong Ki and other hot korean actors, there appearance make you kilig for no reason. We all have our favorites… whose yours? Comment below 🙂

Awww whose hearts wouldn’t melt when you see these:

We’re guilty including them in our prayers to be loved by the character we fall in the drama.
If you need a daily dose of kilig to light your day, best to follow your favorite Oppa in social media!

 

Reason #5 : The Scene itself

Setting is one of the vital component in drama. What i like about South Korea is there place is so romantic and their seasons (Spring,Winter,Summer,Fall) are the best. So let’s go back with our kilig topic. When you witness your favorite love team kissing under the falling cherry blossom tree plus the slow motion, your not just feeling kilig but also day dreaming it was you. HAHAHA

Or when our heroin feels cold in winter and then the leading man offers his hand for her to feel the heat. Ahhhh!! No wonder there are a lot of people visit each filming location of there favorite Kdrama and one day I will. (Crossing my fingers to this one!)

 

Reason #6 : OST (Original Sound Track)

Let’s not deny that after an episode, we can’t stop to hum the OST played with the vivid vision of what we saw and feel. Well, for me an OST can be one of the factor we feel kilig, the soundtrack when it is played especially on the scene that they are confessing there love for each other (heart bursting ahhhh).

It is in the OST that when it plays the feels of the Kdrama comes back (sigh).

My favorite has to be Davichi’s This Love (이 사랑) from Descendants of the Sun.

 

So there you go, my 6 Reason why Kdrama makes me Kilig I’m always hooked!

We want to hear what’s your favorite Kdrama and what makes you kilig. Comment down below.
