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.

No Power!!

3rd world woes!!! Having managed to maintain a semi decent 2ne1 countdown, I’m gonna miss the main event of launching the new vid due out later today because of double whammy bad luck coincidence.
1. Random Powercut (dunno when it will come back)
2. After running on my batteries all evening I left my power cord @ fiancees house so even if power returns can’t do nothing about it.
Pissed.
Really wanted to be part of 2ne1 global celebration:(
Ooh! And the girls have trended twice on twitter since yesterday!!!!
Cool beans for them. Sux biggie for me. T.T
Update: Seems this is tradition with me and highly anticipated stuff. Just noticed I posted Taeyang stuff from BB too. Lol!

2NE1: New Cover, New Song, New News!!!^^

Okay, a visit to allKPOP has clarified a few things!!

First the images from yesterday’s post were for the track called “Go Away”, no 2 on the album and produced by Teddy Oppa!

Secondly: ALBUM COVERRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aren’t they the hotness??? And I really think Minji has grown taller, guys!!!

Thirdly: Today’s preview is translated as “It Hurts” Here is a YT version that should be easier to sample. Courtesy of YGladies2@YT

Wow! *____* Their voices are so pretty!!!!!!

and lyrics provided by shatteredheart28@YT

CL : You put on the shoes I gave to you, and take a walk with her

And kiss that girl as if it’s nothing oh

You sprinkle on that perfume I gave you, and you embrace her

You’ll probably repeat those promises that you once made with me

Minji: I wonder if it’s too late for us already, has our love ended?

Anything, please just say something to me oh oh

We were truly in love, can we not go back?

Dara: Tonight, I’m hurting so bad

Bom: Have you changed? Am I no longer inside your heart now?

When I think of you you, it hurts hurts hurts so much

Fourthly: YG is making KPOP history by opting to promote not one, not two, but three tracks from the single at once!!! So we can expect to see THREE hot videos and THREE awesome live performances!!!!!! YG Ajhussi says he’s doing this clearly understanding the risks both financial and in the ranking system but it is more important to them to showcase 2ne1’s diverse qualities than it is for them to come first!!!

YG Ajhussi we support you all the way!!!!

Updates from YG LIFE^^

I’m so happy that YG Ajhussi made this blog!!! What a cool way to get YG news!!!

Okie, first, Uncle Google’s crap translation of a message left there on September 1st by Ajhussi:

“Hi, is Yang Hyun.
September 1, 2010 … Today, “YG LIFE” to a new house on the day … ~
24, Jim is still stunted by the open can be called a temporary situation, I’m pretty good. We will update our way step by step.

“YG – LIFE” an overview of the perception”

0.0

And this is why we must all learn to read Hangul -_-;;

Anyway found a new Bus advert for the album! This one has Bommie on it! Waaaaaaahhhhh!!! <3333333333

COS IT’S 2NE1!!!!!!!!!

And would you just LOOK at my girls!!!!!!!!!! FIGHTIN’ FIERCE AND SEXY!!!! I was so happy to see the heads up on stella-chan’s blog recently reminding me that they were due back in early September!

It’s been a really crap couple of weeks but this really cheered me up so much. Why? Because I love these girls. Seriously! I’m such a total, picture collecting, vid hunting, lyric cramming Black Jack it’s not even funny^^!

I’ve really been meaning to do a feature on them because they are the girl group that I have been most excited by since TLC. True Word! In fact I get the same high from them as I did back when I discovered that group as a teen!

I don’t even know who’se my favourite for sure cos I love them all so much! CL is so sexy and talented and charismatic and creative, Bommie is gorgeous and hilarious at the same time! Minji is just dynamite! She takes your breath away with her energy and stage presence!! (and she’s my hair muse) and Sandara is just so adorable and funny!

They are the funkiest, freshest, cutest things on the KPop scene and of course they come courtesy of my darling Uncle YG!!!

Anyway, Popseoul was good enough to release the track list of their upcoming album, “To Anyone” (Geddit? Lol!!!) which is set to be released on September 9th. Looks like there are some oldies but goodies mixed in with the newbies, including everyone’s solos!

Here it is:

1. Can’t Nobody (Title Track)

2. Go Away (Title Track)

3. Clap Your Hands (Title Track)

4. I’m Busy

5. It Hurts (Slow)

6.Love is Ouch

7. You & I (Park Bom Solo)

9. Kiss (Sandara Solo)

10. Try to Follow Me

I’m really crossing my fingers for the girls this season! I hope they knock it out of the park!!! And as for me I just got me an itunes gift card and I’m ready to support!!!

I. CANNOT. WAIT. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3<3<3<3<3
