Raining – FT Island

Just wanted to share…

New FT Island MV!!! Yay! it’s actually the video of their latest Japanese single… I like the song compared to their other Japanese songs.. this song really sounds like a Jpop song! ^^ And for those of you who are wondering if this was the MV that was shot in Cebu.. I’m not sure.. It’s very difficult to tell unless that building was constructed here (see the video to know what I am talking about). I can’t also tell by looking at the mountains because there are a lot of mountains everywhere in the world… but wherever they shot it I still like it ^^ . Enjoy!!

FT Island came to Cebu!

So I was just sitting reading some news on the internet about Kpop and Jpop stuff when I saw on allkpop that FT Island came to Cebu… and they came here when the big typhoon wrecked the country (Philippines).

From the news it was said that they came here last Saturday, September 25 in Cebu to shoot their new MV. My reaction when I read this news was like… woah… they came here! I am from Cebu so imagine my shock when I learned about this news. However during the time they came here, a typhoon hit the northern part of our country. But I think the boys were ok because if I remember correctly, there was no flood or anything in Cebu, just some rain and wind. To see the original article, click this link.

I can’t wait to see their video! ahaha.. I’m excited not only because I really like FT Island — but because they shot their video in Cebu! wahihihi… for those who are not familiar with them, they are a rock band. I like them because of their songs (check out Love Sick, Heaven and Bad Woman), and because of Lee Hongki! ^^ Anyway here is a video of their recent single called I Hope.

On a sad note though.. It is very unfortunate for our country… because nothing like this (the great flood in Manila) happened in 40 years. The area that has been hit by the typhoon is in the Luzon (Manila) area. I live in Cebu so it’s not really that bad here… though the wind last Saturday was really strong, but there wsa less rain. But it’s a pity for the people in Manila because the strong rains caused the place to flood. Some of my friends live there and they said it was the worst typhoon ever… There have been some casualties due to the flood… And so on I thank of all those who continue to help my country.. please continue to pray for us 😀 thanks!

Heechul and Hongki Save Energy @ Ingkigayo 090510

No Super Junior in today’s Inkigayo… but they will be back with a new song next week! Yay! Can’t wait for it.

But though there is no Super Junior, Heechul along with Hongki did the Save Energy song on this week’s show.

No subs yet… and because I don’t speak Korean I don’t know what they were talking about (does anyone want to enlighten us??). But I laughed when Heechul sang Gee! Ahahaha… makes me remember the guesting they did on Intimate Note! Babo! nononono Ha! 😀

Critique of Idol Group’s Lead Vocals – Junsu’s the best!

This was shared by a friend of mine while we were chatting earlier today. Since that friend did not want to post it on our blog (I share a blog with 4 other friends), I ended up posting it. It took me quite awhile since I had to look for good pictures (the hardest part of posting something.. sigh).

So anyway, recently, Arena magazine put out a list for All Round Critique Of Idol Groups’ Lead Vocals. And guess who got number 1! ahaha it’s Junsu!! I totally agree (without any biases whatsoever). To me he has one of the best voices that I’ve heard and I really like the way he sings and expresses his feelings while singing a song (oops there goes the bias part ehehehe..)

So this was the list (I included pictures in case you’re not familiar with the other names mentioned).
