In Se7enth Heaven!^^

Ok, it’s been 2 years since I celebrated the flawlessness that was Se7en’s “Digital Bounce” album on this blog, such an under appreciated, electro-pop master piece in my opinion, so before I post about anything else this year I want to just say:

WELCOME BACK CHOI DONGWOOK aka SE7EN-NIM!!!!!!!!

YES!! He’s back!!!

I don’t like ballads. I’ve said it so many times but Seven-nim is one of the few people I will listen to. Why? Because so much of his heart is in his voice.

And with this album he’s doing what he was born to do which is gorgeous, heartfelt R&B and guise, this whole album is a heartbreaker. One just needs to see the translation of the just released title track “When I Can’t Sing”:

Seven (Se7en) – When I Can’t Sing (내가 노래를 못해도)

* Even if I lose everything, if my popularity drops
Even if I can’t sing, if I get a different job
Will you still be able to love me for who I am?

Do you know that who I am on screen isn’t really my everything? (Do you know?)
Do you know that my overflowing confidence makes me even more anxious? (Do you know?)
Standing under the flashing lights, there is a thick shadow behind me

* repeat

You say that you love me but
Am I really who you love? (Am I?)
You say that you fell for me but
Am I really the one who made you fall for me? (Am I?)
When you are in my arms, looking at me
I want to ask you these questions

* repeat

Someday, the day will come (the day will come)
I’ll come down from the stage where the cheers have decreased
As my shoulders droop down (shoulders droop down)
My head hung low (even then)
Will you stand by my side?

* repeat

I want to ask you

(cr: MzKyu@6theory 2ne1 artist thread)

the entire song ( a surprise collab with JYP) is an honest message by an artist in the winter of his career (kpop idols tend to have really short life spans) speaking candidly to his fans.

And the MV!!!!!!!!!!! Omo, I’m still choked up! There is a strong feeling that he is saying goodbye to us through this video (he pretty much hands over to GD (the next generation of Sunbaes?) in the beginning) and I really hope it’s not true!

Se7en-nim Please Don’t Gooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t care how successful your Restaurant business is! It just wouldn’t be the same without you to look forward to!!!!

Here’s the tracklist of the album which i think is self titled(courtesy of AllKpop)

01. “Somebody Else”
02. “Angel”
03. “When I Can’t Sing”
04. “That Person”
05. “Understand”
06. “Make Good Love”

It’s already on itunes so go and grab this worthy album here.

And watch the melancholy perfection of the “If I couldn’t Sing” MV below:

My answer to his question is YES, I would still love you because you’re an amazing person and a wonderful big brother to my YG babies but please, please, PLEASE don’t stop singing!

Thank you.

2ne1 is the BEST NEW BAND IN THE WORLD!!!

So says MTV Iggy after their half a year long competition and so Blackjacks have been saying all along!!

Yeah and Verily, Tis a time for new avaters and sigs because bragging rights abound! Two MTV historical wins in a freaking row!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess after rain comes sunshine! YG Entertainment just had some awful experiences this year with artists being embroiled in scandals, negative rumours and news of dipping stock prices. Fans have been pretty sober but sticking by them though because I guess we believe in the brand!

You can’t imagine how just freaking awesome it is for us now after all the darkness to get these kinds of distinctions not even from the Kpop world but from the International community!!!

YG FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry but this is a spazz post in case you didn’t notice!

\(^____^)/

BUT THE AWESOMEST NEWS IS THAT MTV IGGY IS GONNA HAVE THEM PERFORM AT TIMES SQUARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OHMAIGAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NEW YORKERS YOU ARE SO DAMN LUCKY!!!!!!!!!!

*dies*

Praying for a topless TOP

Bless you fan girls.

Seriously, bless your little idol chibi fan girl socks, all of you.

Everything else in the world can change but one thing will always remain constant and that is the pervertedness of fan girls!

AllKpop lately announced that Kim Ha Neul (we love her because she is Sukkie/Momo’s owner in “Your’re My Pet”) has been chosen to lead in a remake of the Japanese hit Absolute Boyfriend (Zettai Kareshi) opposite none other than Choi Seung Hyun better known as Big Bang’s power rapper TOP!

It hasn’t been confirmed yet though rumours already have it that TOP is looking favourably on the role. For K-drama lovers this is great because KHN is reputedly really good and TOP has been getting critical acclaim for his work too.

Not to mention that casting him is also dead on because who looks more cyborg perfect boy friend than TOP? He’s a complete doll! He even dresses like a Ken doll most of the time, right?

Fan girls however have cut quickly and efficiently to the single most important point that this news implies. As anyone who’se read the manga or the anime knows, Absolute boyfriend is about a girl who orders and receives a perfect boyfriend in the form of a cyborg.

What is of optimum importance here is that the cyborg/boyfriend is delivered to her in a box.

Naked.

Did you catch that?

Naked.

This would be enough to cause heart attacks with any idol but with TOP there is a possibility that the very foundations of KPop world may shift beneath our feet as everything we thought we knew changes.

Why?

Pay attention. There are many mysteries in Kpop, but one of the greatest ones is the mystery of TOP’s naked torso.

In a world where every idol has at some time or other had to give chest and ab fan service, TOP is an idol that has not only stubbornly continued to cover up, but  has done so with frustrating layer after layer of annoyingly, all covering layered fashions and for five years no amount of begging, pleading or weeping on the part of VIPs has moved him to reveal so much as a nip shot. Not since that time years ago when freshly debuted, he mistakenly flashed a micrometer of flesh only to show some of the baby fat that was the plague of his teenage years.

KPop theorists have mulled deeply over the years on it. Why is TOP’s torso one of the best kept secrets in Kpop? What could he be hiding? Tattoos? Scars? Grotesquely distended skin? Popular opinion has been forced to conclude that it can be none of these things due to various clues.

What makes it worse is that his co-Big Bang members have openly confided that TOP has the best chest of them all. People. We are talking about a group that includes the glorious torsos of Dong Young Bae and Kang Daesung. I personally believe they were trolling us when they said that.

So this is the gravitas that hangs around the possibility of TOP being in a movie where at last, that which has been concealed will finally be revealed to us.

I expect there will be a great blinding light.

I don’t plan on wearing sunglasses.

I think the general sentiment is best summarized by the hashtag banner of one commenter on the AKP thread:

#weprayfortoplessTOP

Now let us spazz.

Get out the Wayyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!

Cos Kpop gods and pimps are swaggering through!!!!! Looks like some people ain’t playin’ in 2011 and i Just. Effin’. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!

What do I mean??? Today and yesterday alone new vids from Rain’s Princes: Mblaq, the desperately anticipated TVXQ and the Flyest Playboys in Seoul: GD&TOP. I tell you my browser is swaying under the weight of all the youtube and kpop news pages I have open! Lol! I just had to come out of hiatus again and share, share, share!!!!

Well. here are the vids and my opinions wether you like em or not! heh!

MBLAQ – CRY

courtesy jtunecamp@YT

These boys have always been cute to me because I like Rain and they are so obviously his boys. They sing like him, dance like him and one of them even looks like him (*____*)! This video only further pushes that impression for me. The song is sexy and in a classic R&B style that I like but the video……

I really preferred “Y” I think. This one was just made me wish they were doing something a little fresher. And the wardrobe! I know as a GD fan I shouldn’t really be qualified to talk about what other people wear but I believe that GD can get away with ANYTHING. It’s one of his particular gifts. It’s not a gift that a lot of people have. Seriously the boys of Mblaq are cute enough so I believe they could simplify. With them, less would be sooooooooooo much more >:)

But overall, a nice effort. It’s just that the bar keeps rising so they really have to push more to distinguish them selves.

TVXQ – KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN

courtesy sment@YT

I’m not a Cassie but I do like the men of TVXQ! Who wouldn’t, right? I was delighted to see that HoMin was out with a new video (I actually havn’t seen JYJ’s yet! Shame! Shame!) and felt quite rewarded when I watched it!

The song is epic!!! Epic!!! EPIC!!! Reminds me of everything I love about Kpop! And they look GREAT!!! The choreography is on point too! Really powerful and at one point it really reminded me of Black Greek Stepping which is something I really like!!! The wardrobe was a little woah! At a point they seemed to be wearing something made from ugly furniture with hair on the back. The miracle is that their smexiness shone through!^^

Changmin really blossomed in this video even though he had fewer parts than Yunho. His voice just AMAZED me! And from the comments section on the YouTube page I think many Cassie’s felt their biases shifting towards this manly macknae by the end of the video!

Just great! Can’t wait to see Live performances. I bet they’ll kill it!

WARNING: EVERYTHING FROM HERE ONWARDS IS SERIOUSLY BIASED.

GD&TOP – KNOCK OUT

courtesy BigBang@YT

I’m honestly speechless about this video.

I really am literally knocked out. I’ve been rewatching it all day and I still can’t find the words to express how much I love it. I can just say that I believe that YG has swaggered its way out of the KPop box because this is just GOOD POP, PERIOD!

I already liked the song from when they performed it at the MNet Award thing because of the catchy chorus and because GD’s funny, crazy wave dance. I got the album in itunes and I was loving it on there along with High High, Oh Yeah, Obsession, Don’t Leave, What Do You Want (LOVE THIS ONE!!! GD doing Vintage Funk with a hint of his inner Punk!!!<3<3<3)

The video is beyond any expectation I could have had for it! It’s the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party meets the Playboy Mansion and GD and TOP showcase a crazy, fun kind of cool that just looks so easy on them! It’s fresh! It’s different! And it’s very, very them!!!!

There are so many bits I love that it doesn’t even make sense!!! The bubble wrap addiction! The insane couture and hair (honestly only THEY can get away with it!), Gaho all grown up! The butt chairs? The Tank? The list is just endless!!! Ican’t even hope to photo spazz it all!!!! And I cannot watch this video without grinning crazily then pressing replay at the end! Even now I want to go back to it! Waaaaaahhhhh!!!! It really is an obsession like the chorus says!!!

And let me also just take the opportunity to say this bcos i dunno if I have yet.

Over this past year I have come to seriously respect G-Dragon as an entertainer. The music he writes and produces, his consistently break through style, his amazing skills as a dancer and choreographer (I LOVE how he moves!!!!! this part of him is so under rated because he underplays it so much but as a lover of dancing, I can’t help but notice it!) his effectiveness as a leader, his professionalism and ability to keep pushing through hard times, all at such a young age have earned him my sincere admiration. He works so unbelievably hard and has been doing so for so long. If I could take just a little of his work ethic I can only imagine what I could achieve.

I now believe he is one of the most exciting acts currently active on the world’s Pop music scene and I know he’s only going to get better!

Er – I guess my GD bias was showing there. Well, TOP is also hella sexy, slayin’ the ladies with those glances and that knowing smirk! And I extra appreciate the effort he put into dancing, even pulling out a commendable Harlem shake!!! I once said that if I had GD I would probably cheat on him with TOP and also vice versa. This remains true! Lol!

Ah – look at that!

This post has become a thesis!!!! Must stop now!
