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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Love Recipe – Clazziquai Project (MV and Lyrics)

I’ve been swamped with work lately! I’ve been stressed to the nth level.. but thank god for the new Clazziquai Project album! I have been listening to it on repeat for a few weeks now and it always takes away some of the stress. ๐Ÿ™‚

clazziquai

So I wanted to share the title track of their album Blessed. It’s called Love Recipe (not to be confused with Gummy’s Love Recipe).

The Video

I have always been a fan of videos like this. I loved it since I saw it the first time. I like that they made the video in a restaurant and in a sweet shop/deli. I love the different frames and the camera angles. It was shot perfectly. I also love that they didn’t focus only on food but they also showed people in love, not just the romantic kind but all kinds of love. It’s very artistic and deep. This is my kind of video and I’m glad Clazziquai made something different from all the other Kpop vids we are used to seeing.

Two buts though… (1) all these food is making me hungry! (hahaha), (2) where is dj Clazzi! (actually from Eat Your Kimchi’s interview with them, he was in Canada). ๐Ÿ˜›

The Song

I have been waiting a long time for their comeback! I have always been a Clazziquai fan since I heard “She Is” and “Be My Love” from the OST of My Lovely Samsoon. And I have not stopped liking them because their music is very different from traditional Kpop.

If you have listened to their previous albums, you would realize that this song is reminiscent of their first album. Though they are known for releasing electronica songs, Clazziquai has done a few songs of the same genre as Love Recipe. I kind of like them singing this jazzy/bossanova sound. As always, Clazziquai is not afraid to experiment with their music and they always release tracks that are fresh and original. Alex and Horan’s voice as usual go perfect together. Actually to me their blending is probably one of the best in the industry. It’s PERFECT!!!!

This group has long been a favorite of mine and I could say a lot of praises about them, but I have to write this blog so I’ll sop here.

Final Verdict: They amazed me with another song again! I love this song and I can listen to it the whole day!!! I love them!!

And now for the lyrics:

Love Recipe Translation

Honestly speaking, I didnโ€™t like sweet things.
The hot coffee that you like, the languid rain
I was just with those things. Because I just liked you
But at some point, I turn my head at the smell of coffee

The message you left, the photos of us smiling
Your secret recipe that you only told me
Everything you left is now my everything
I have something to tell you right now baby

Love, by my side, itโ€™s only you
Love, even the rain sound is dazzling
Love, even my face resembles yours,
time is too precious to even sleep

Love, let me hear your voice a little more
Love, so I can cherish it a bit more
Love, I like the world that youโ€™re in
Oh, because now I finally discovered you

Honestly speaking, I didnโ€™t like hot things
Even if I said I love you, they all left
But you were different, I thought again
I have something to tell you right now baby

Love, inside of me, itโ€™s only you
Love, even the past tears are dazzling
Love, even my eyes resemble yours
All the times spent not knowing

Love, let me hear your story a bit more
Love, so I can get to know you a bit more
Love, I like the world that youโ€™re in
Oh because now I finally discovered you

Let me, let me Love
Inside of me, itโ€™s only you
Love, even the past tears are dazzling
Love, even my eyes resemble yours
All the times spent not knowing

Love, let me hear your story a bit more
Love, so I can get to know you a bit more
Love, I like the world that youโ€™re in
Oh because now I finally discovered you
Love love love

Minhyuk (CNBLUE) Cam!!!!

Pardon me for this post will be written like a fan girl!

While I was browsing videos earlier, I happened to see this video and I can’t help but squeal with glee! It’s not everyday you get to see this! hahaha

minhyuk

It’s Minhyuk‘s Cam from when CNBLUE was playing I’m Sorry.

Yes I am a Minhyuk fan girl! Hahaha I really really like this kid! (swoon!!!) We don’t really get to see him up front because he plays the drums so most of the time he stays at the back and the other three boys are in front. But I’m really happy they posted a video like this. It’s kind of like a fan service for those shipping him especially because we don’t see a lot of him. And because of this I am one happy fan! ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t what is it with me and drummers but I always have preferred always drummers over the lead vocals or the guitarists. I think maybe because to me they are a bit mysterious so I like them. And I’ve always like the drums/percussions over guitars — so no wonder I was drawn to him. From this cam we see that he does play the drums well (I daresay! I think BOICEs will agree too!). My heart is fluttering seeing him twirl those drumstick. (sorry if I made you throw up.. I did say I was going to write this like a fan girl!) I’m really a very very satisfied fan! Oh you boys know how to make your fans happy! hurray for good marketing! ๐Ÿ˜›

I hope they’d be more videos like this so we can drool over him! Don’t you agree girls!

F4 (Jerry, Vic, Ken and Vanness) reunites for Chinese New Year

Xin Nian Kuai Le! Well actually that greeting came a bit late! Haha.. but I still wanted to say it! Happy Seollal!

I have been so excited for the past few weeks when I read that the original F4 (Jerry Yan, Vic Zhou, Ken Chu and Vanness Wu)ย  were reuniting for a show for Chinese New Year.

f4 reunion

I knew that the show was pre-recorded and I have seen some fancams already but I actually waited for the video of the broadcast to be available before making this post. And today, I finally found a video!

Meteor Rainย ๆตๆ˜Ÿ้›จ

First Timeย ็ฌฌไธ€ๆ—ถ้—ด

I am not sure if a lot of the new Asian fans would recognize them, but to me they were the reason why I succumbed to the Asian invasion. Before them, I only knew of boy bands who were from Europe or North America. Didn’t really cared that much about Asian boys. Until there was F4!!!

I could still remember how crazy I was over them. Not only me, this craziness swept the Philippines and it opened doors to having more Taiwanese, Japanese and Korean dramas being show in the country. But they were always the first. They were the original Flower Boys! Before everyone knew Go Jun Pyo, everyone was talking about Dao Ming Si! Before Boys Over Flowers (Korean) and Hana Yori Dango (Japanese) there was Meteor Garden.

Now, as I see them together again, I can’t help grinning from ear to ear! OMG!! ย I know they have become mature now (I don’t want to use old!!), but it doesn’t stop me from liking them still. I have honestly waited for this reunion to happen. I have read that they have wanted to have one for the last 3 years but because of their schedules, they couldn’t do it. But this year they did and thank heavens they did! And goodness me, they are still so handsome! Zai zai ai ni! (pardon this crazy fan!).

This really really made my day! Wish they would do something like this again!

Note: I have to say thanks to koalasplayground.com for posting this. My Chinese is not as good as my Korean so I couldn’t find the videos. To see the original post, please click here.

Sweet Dream – MFBTY (MV)

So it’s a Saturday and I have nothing to do today. And I was a bit bored, so I decided to post some again.

Though I haven’t posted anything, I am still a bit updated with Korean music. But with the recent rise in the number of Kpop groups, I don’t know who is who! Seriously… they are just so many of them now… and their songs are just the same.

But recently I find myself listening to a lot more than just Kpop. I’ve been listening to a lot more than just Kpop, but I think I really enjoy the K-indie music as well as K-hiphop. And this song has been on my playlist. It’s from MFBTY (My Fans Better Than Yours), a project group of Tiger JK, Yoon Mirae (Tasha/T) and Bizzy. It’s called Sweet Dream.

The Video

I actually heard the song before I saw the video. So when I saw the video I was like.. What the heck happened! Hahaha. I have actually been a fan of Drunken Tiger and Yoon Mirae for quite sometime now. And this is the first time I’ve seen them do this kind of stuff in their videos. It was like seeing their alter egos in the video. Did I enjoy it? Ya.. in a twisted kind of way. Maybe I enjoyed it because it was fun to watch them here. Because it’s very different from their image. It shows that they aren’t afraid how they looked like or if it does something to their current image!

The video is full of surreal things. You really don’t expect that to happen in reality. ย Maybe they were trying to say a lot of possible things can happen in our dreams – which I bet a lot of us had experienced one time or another. And then when we wake up we know it was just a dream. But I have to say, the robot Tiger dream was scary!

The Song

I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (notice the number of exclamation points!) When I heard this song the first time I just played Melon 100 chart. I honestly thought it wasn’t a Korean artist who sang it. But when I saw the album cover had Yoon Mirae I couldn’t believe it.. then I hear Tiger JK rap. I am so amazed by this song. Amazed because the beat was electronic-club with a mix of hip hop. It was like listening to a Black Eyed Peas song only in a different language!

I honestly enjoy Korean electronica music. Though this genre is not so popular yet and is (to me) still of an Indie status. But I love this kind of music and it’s certainly something different from Kpop. I am so happy that MFBTY produced this song because it lets people know that there is more than just Kpop in the Korean music industry.

I do hope that they will be making more of this sound even though they are just a project group. Korea needs more electronica!

Final Verdict: You’d never believe it was from a Korean artist until you hear the rap. If you like electronic/hip-hop you’d love this song. I can’t wait to hear more of MFBTY songs!
