Sungha Jung’s Philippine Tour

Sungha Jung is coming to the Philippines!

Better yet, he is coming to my City!!!! Yay! Hurray!!!

sungha jung concert

Anyway, if you aren’t familiar with him, he is a Korean finger guitarist. I have wrote several entries about him and his videos. I am very impressed with how he plays his guitar and I have been a fan since I saw his videos since he was about 12 playing his guitar. He has grown and his music too has evolved.

I would really really love to see this concert! The venue is just like 15 minutes maybe 10 by taxi from my house.. But first I need to find someone to go with me who is as impressed with him as I am. Did that make sense? haha… Who wants to go to the concert??

Anyway, check this poster for the ticket prices. Boy am I glad it’s not as expensive as watching all the other Kpop groups perform! :)

Of Wedding Speeches and songs..

Ok.. so you maybe wondering who is getting married.. is it some Kpop star.. ummm actually no one! haha

I have moved back home and from that time I have been so busy, I didn’t have the time to write on my blog. I have missed all the new Kdramas, I don’t even get to read recaps anymore :(. I’ve had a whirlwind of activities lined up and it doesn’t seem to end.

This is probably the longest time I have sitting in a computer doing absolutely nothing! Ha!

All this while I have kept myself busy helping cousins and my sister with their own business. My sister is in the early stages of setting up her own path as a WEDDING PLANNER ( if you’re from Cebu and you need someone for your wedding send me a message! :)). And it’s because of her that I have been sort of addicted to anything about weddings! Looking at dresses, bouquets and wedding stuff on youtube. And it’s because of this that I have strayed a bit from all the Kpop posting.

From all those wedding themed youtube videos, I think what I am going to post is one of the best yet. And maybe some of you might have seen this already because it’s not that new anymore and from what I gather it went viral some months ago. It was even featured on Teens React To…

What I am talking about is the video of McFly‘s Tom Fletcher‘s Wedding Speech. This is probably one of the best I’ve heard.

Well technically it’s not a speech… but instead he sings his whole speech.

For those who don’t know him, he is one of the members of McFly. If you still don’t know them, remember a song called All About You? Or how about Shine A Light? They were the ones who sang it!

So Tom sang his thanks to all the McFly songs.. he just changed the lyrics. The speech/song though is quite long, but you have to see it to the end!

I am so addicted to this wedding speech now and  I think this is the most romantic one that I have seen. It is not only romantic but the effort he put to making the lyrics is such a sentiment of how grateful he is and how sincere he is with doing this. The last song had me sobbing! I just love that song so much (it’s why I liked McFly)

Oh the hopeless romantic in me wants my groom (wherever he is) to do the same.. though that’s minus points for originality!!! But this wedding speech could be an inspiration to all the future grooms. I’m sure your wives-to-be would be swooning over you!

Ahh weddings.. I am loving watching all of these.. but I have to find that white knight before I even dream of my own walk to remember.

See ya!

Coming Back Home!

If you haven’t noticed me posting something on the blog, it’s because I went on another hiatus because I had to move back to the Philippines. I love it a lot there unfortunately the course I wanted wasn’t available there. Well it is but there was something missing. So I have to come back —- for some time.

It was a little weird to come back home. I got so used the life there that it took awhile for me to adjust especially the traffic and the weather. But after a few days, it’s quite ok now.

I have been very very busy with the move. So I haven’t posted anything or read anything online. Heck I have not seen a drama in a long time! OMG!

But last night I found this video and I haven’t seen a video like this for a long time, especially not from a girl idol group. I’m posting it just to have something related to the blog. It’s from Sunny Hill and Daybreak. If you watch Gag Concert, I’m sure you will know who that guy is! Hahaha… I really like this guy! :)

I hope I can find time to post something! I’m Back!! weeee

Oguri Shun Alert – Rich Man, Poor Woman SP

OMG!!! Scream! Rich Man, Poor Woman is going to air and SP on April 1!

Richmanpoorwoman

Screaming fan girl on the loose!! kya!!!!

Ok.. so I haven’t watched J-dorama for sometime, the last two that I’ve watched are Lucky Seven (because of Matsumoto Jun) and Rich Man, Poor Woman (because of Oguri Shun). — can you tell Hana Yori Dango has it’s side effects! lol

But really I haven’t watched a J-dorama in a loooong time.. maybe because I am not familiar anymore with the actors. Every time I see a new Japanese actor, I am at a loss because I don’t know who they are anymore.. there are just too many of them to keep up. And too many dramas that I haven’t watched in awhile.

Last year though, I was looking for Oguri Shun’s dramas and I found Rich Man, Poor Woman. And I love it!!!! I watched all 11 episodes in 1 day!!! I miss J-dorama but I don’t know where to start watching!

So when I read in another blog that they were doing a Special! I can’t help but scream! I can’t wait to watch Hyuga and Makoto!

From the pics that I have seen, it looks like they are shooting it in New York. You can read and see more pictures in koalasplayground’s post.

Omo… Oguri Shun is just too handsome here! I have to post it!

Standing Still – U-KISS (MV)

U-KISS is for me the most underrated Kpop idol in Korea! I don’t know why they aren’t as popular as they are all around the world. They aren’t rookies anymore actually.. but still they don’t have that much of a following in the Kpop world. I’m not sure why, it could be because when they debuted, Kpop was ruled by the likes of DBSK, Super Junior, SS501 and Big Bang. However, it’s been years now and I can’t comprehend why they’re not that popular. – end of rant..

bring it back to old school

I like Ukiss since I heard Bring It Back to Old School. I think they have a certain charm for me that’s why I like them. Also, as I was new to Kpop that time and I did not understand absolutely any Korean, I was kind of happy to find Ukiss that time — because some of the member can speak English. I think this was the reason I liked them from before until now. I appreciate it a lot that they were the first to reach out to the international audience using English.

ukiss collage

So them boys have released a new single called Standing Still from their album Collage and AJ is back from his hiatus! Wohoo.

The Video

Well, to me there is nothing really special about the video… just them dancing with some screens of a girl with very scary green cat eyes. I’m not sure why she is there.. but I think it might have something to do with the song or something. I am guessing that the concept of the video was to show that the person is strong after all hardships.. love I guess in the video and is standing still. It’s just my guess.

Personally, I think this is not the best Ukiss video. I mean, they’ve done this concept before. It reminds me a lot of Manmanhani (Am I That Easy?) and Bingeul Bingeul. But every time they release a video, I look forward to their dances. I don’t want to compare them to any other group, but I am just happy to see them even after all these years, they are still doing the thing they are good at.. making good songs and good music.

Ukiss fighting!

The Song

It’s a nice song! Not the best Ukiss song though.. 0330 is still my favorite, but not bad at all. When I hear this song it’s like it’s something different from their past songs, but at the same time there is some Ukiss sound that I feel I am familiar with. I can’t really pinpoint. But this song is not as strong as Stop Girl or Manmanhani. I think it would get some getting used to appreciate it fully. But it’s Ukiss just the same so I like it.

A bonus for all Kiss Me’s is that AJ is on this song! I’m sure Kiss Me’s have missed him.. but he’s back! It’s nice to see all Ukiss together.. though I still miss Xander and Kibum. Great to have him back. Also, I like that they are giving a lot more recognition for Soohyun’s talent now. I love Kevin, but Soohyun’s voice is more powerful for me.. but he’s not given too much attention.

Now… what I really like about Ukiss songs is that they pay attention to the English of the songs. Well.. maybe not all the songs (I remember r squared pi!). But at least they try to make an effort especially with the lyrics and the pronunciation. As an international Kpop fan I appreciate that little details. Although 90% of the song is sung in Korean, but at least the other English parts are done right. No biggie– no pressure on K-entertainment companies, just a friendly reminder from an international fan!^_^

Glad to have them back!

Final Verdict: It’s not the best Ukiss song, but I like it just the same. Because it’s Ukiss. They’re underrated but they are as talented as other Kpop artists. The MV is just so-so though.
