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.

BATTLE OF THE GIRLBANDS: SNSD vs Secret vs Wonder Girls vs T-ara

As a hardcore YG Stan/VIP/Blackjack, I wondered if I’m still qualified to give unbiased opinions on the happenings in Kpop.

Truthfully? I don’t know but – my peeps are on break and I love Kpop so I can’t help being drawn into the excitement of the season we are currently witnessing.

And, Oh my fandom, what an exciting season it is for Kpop right now!!! Hearts are beating, ba-thump, ba-thump all across Kpop land and why? Because we are in the season of the return of the mighty SoShi (aka So Nyuh Shi Dae aka SNSD aka Girls Generation)! The 9 angels of Kpop and South Koreas National Girl Group!

I don’t think there’s been such an anticipated come back since I got into Kpop (which granted was just a little more than a year ago! Lol!) Sones (their fanclub) are in an agitated ecstacy!

And the hype is intense too. Newsie blogs have it that other Entertainment Companies were so intimidated by the impending return of the power house girl group that they all rescheduled their own artists come backs! Imagine that!!!

All, however, except the little girl group that could named, Secret, who just released their album “Moving in Secret” as well as one helluva jimmy-janglin title track called “Love is Move” (사랑은 MOVE) .

The four girl group is right now being applauded for their brave “movement” in going ahead with their schedule even though they did say they were concerned since they know what they are up against. It’s already being said by netizens that losing to SNSD would be an honourable defeat for them. One has to admit, lose or win, they definitely got some good spotlight for their “moves”!

Interesting enough though, Secret Time (Secret’s fan club) seem to be cultivating high hopes for their girls based on the released track. I can’t say I blame them. It’s one toe tapping, hip shimmying, hair lashing blast of an infectious song. I’ve listened to it quite a bit myself and it kinda makes me want to get up and shake it! If there’s one thing I can say, the girls of Secret brought an A game to the table and have nothing to be ashamed of.

The drama continues however as also in the running to challenge the Princesses of Kpop are the former Queens of Kpop, The Wonder Girls! I must say I’m excited about this particular chapter in the drama. A noble story of kpop royalty and the struggle to regain that coveted throne of the no 1 girl group!

Both groups have a lot at stake as they have to reward the faithfulness of their respective fandoms by showing they can still deliver on what made them great.

Wonderfuls (the Wonder Girl fanclub) especially have something to be anxious about as their girls have been out of the game for years. Till recently, their activities were all based in the US and there is some sensitivity in their camp over the fact that they never quite blew up over there. This however in no way discounts them as a powerful contender from a very strong Company and with the plans they have in store for a US debut album whose release will coincide with TV Movie to air nationwide on Teen Nick; things may soon change!

I’m really excited to see what they come with. JYP has been dropping intriguing hints on Twitter and  the company’s official word on the album is :

“Since it’s the first album to be released after such a long time, we’re putting a lot of care into each and every song. We will work to bring out a great album and show an awesome image on a perfect stage. We ask for your support.”

And on competing with SNSD:

“It’d be a lie if we said we’re not stressing over SNSD’s comeback. But because we’ll be standing in front of everyone after such a long period away, we’re concentrating more on bringing out a quality album.”

(cr: AllKPop)

The girls are rumoured to be leaving behind their trademark retro style and adopting a more pop look to compliment the style of their movie.  I stand beside Wonderfuls in looking forward to this come back. A group that inspires such an unshakable confidence in fans that have waited this long deserves respect!

And finally to add more sugar to all that spice, we are also expecting come backs from After School’s wildly successful sub-group Orange Caramel and from T-ara who actually already had a hit this summer with “Roly-Poly” and are currently making  rapid advances into Japan.

Back to SNSD; Sones are also another fandom that have unshakable confidence in their girls and the fact that they are one of the biggest fandoms in kpop is also something to respect.

The gorgeous girls of SoShi have already wowed people across the board with the elegant and more mature sexiness of their come back concept looks, a look that seems to announce they are ready to graduate from Princesses to Queens. They have also been dropping teasers for their title track “The Boys” which is said to have been produced by legendary US R&B producer, Teddy Riley. Newsey Blogs have it that SM (SNSD’s Company) plan to use this track to introduce the girls into the US (hence there is an English as well as a Korean version)and there has been much debate as to how successful they will be in that notoriously difficult market.

(Actually it’s officially a race now as to who will break successfully in the US first: 2ne1 with Will-I-Am? SNSD with Teddy Riley? Wonder Girls with the inroads they have already made and I suspect Timbaland which would be so awesome? The good thing is whoever makes it will be opening the door for everyone so there are no losers. Just bragging rights at stake here! Kk!)

The teasers released by SoShi which opens with an uncharacteristically fierce rapping verse and features the girls showing subtle sex appeal in dance moves have been loved by some while others are keeping their judgement till they see the whole video. I think I will be doing that too.

Between all this and Kara’s return from Japan earlier in the season with the successful “Step” as well as Brown Eyed Girls return with the Epic disco-licious “6th Sense,” I have to say that this is a pretty good time to be into Kpop!

Since at the end of everything, the winners are the fans I say – Let the Games Begin! KPop Girl Groups, HWAITING!^^

OK, Hiatus Over.

Why did I think I could stay away??

I miss my blog!

Hiatus is over!!

Now check out all the cool changes I made!

– New Pinky Header!

– Kinda New layout!

– New Awesome Pages

– All New Content!!

I’ll do a more detailed post later.

For now, I’m just going to bask in being back here! Lol!

I is back babeh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Officially on Hiatus

Whenever I’m away for a while, which I know is most of the time now *sheepish**sheepish* I always forget how much I enjoy blogging.

I mean I enjoy the other sharing platforms like twitter, FB and tumblr and also the various fan forums and chatboxes, etc I’ve stumbled into over my last couple of years of interwebbing.

But I have really loved blogging and this silly little sporadic blog named sugarwater which is in actuality the most succesful diary I have ever kept.

I don’t want to stop.

I just want to officially say I am on hiatus from the interwebs for a while so I can do some aggressive writing but I will try and check back here once in a while just so the thread of my whims continues to be documented.

I just wont be reporting on the things this blog has been about so far: my kpop, dramas, asian movies, mangas and mahnwas (and recently webtoons which are kinda like korean online comics with THE BEST STORIES EVER!!!!!!!), the occasional game that I have not completed (yes FFX, u are still my Moby Dick) and my darling Sukkie.

*sigh*

Sad already.

I wanted to spazz here about 2ne1’s comeback and 2nd mini album which may as well have been written specifically for me, and 2ne1TV season 3 which is now broadcasting worldwide and how my love for the girls has just grown in leaps and bounds (and Bom is my everlasting bias as in I could be Bi for her but I still love CL, Minji and Dara) and how all their live stages were just fabulous and how much I wish I could go to their concert and yell NOLJA while waving their light stick in one hand and Bommie’s name on a cardboard corn cob in the other!

I wanted to cry here about what happened to Daesung and express my disappointment at how cruel people could be about it cos it wasn’t them or anyone they knew and they were anonymous and I wanted to pray for healing for him and the family of the deceased and for the boys of Big Bang who have inspired me so much since I started to follow their career and became a VIP and especially for Kwon Leadah who I greatly admire though he is much younger than me and who shaved off all his hair and has made me forever nosebleed.

I’ve read quite a few amazing manga/mahnwa titles. Old and new. Actually quite a lot. I can’t even list them anymore. I am so grateful to scanlation groups.

So much, so much to talk about but no time at all.

But…

I am hoping now to spend some of the time I won’t be using here to do something constructive that I can show one day with pride right here.

So please be patient with me as I turn inwards and work on bringing you stuff from me.

Neogogo.
