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™‚

Cosmic Girl – Kim Tae Woo (MV)

LSchool here is finally ending! Hurray!!!! But I have to relocate again for further studies.. oh no! I know I have to move but I am slacking. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have time to post on my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

kim tae woo

The post for today is Kim Tae Woo‘s comeback song Cosmic Girl.

The Video

When this video came out, I watched it immediately. I like Kim Tae Woo’s voice and his song. Liked it since he was in G.O.D. As the video played I was holding on to my seat because it stars Lee Dong Wook. Ok so I’ve been fan girling over since being in Strong Heart! His humor one of the best, but maybe not as fast as Lee Seunggi yet. The video started just fine, promising a story for us. But when the the video ended I was like WTF! Pardon the language dear readers.. but this video is one of those moments you have to say it! Could they explain to me: What’s with the concept!

Honestly, it was such a waste of Lee Dong Wook in the video. If not for him, I would not have sat through all of it. This is one of the videos I really don’t want to see again. Big mistake! Also, the scene where Kim Tae Woo is singing with a cosmic/outer space backdrop… it was well to put it not believable. If you are going to put a green screen backdrop make sure it’s done properly and make sure it’s not too obvious. Why do I feel like this video was made with a very low budget! ย Not watching it again!

The Song

Hmm, how do I put it.. I like Kim Tae Woo but this song doesn’t do any justice to his voice. Comparing it to his previous songs like Love Rain and Echo, this one is really an average one. Don’t get me wrong. After listening several times, I’m liking it. But it doesn’t have that WOW factor that I had after listening to Love Rain and Echo. If you’ve just started listening to Kim Tae Woo’s music, maybe you won’t feel that way. But I know he has one of the most powerful voices in Korea. So this song.. I think is a wrong song for him. This is a miss for me… I think he deserves better songs — those that especially bring out his voice and singing style (soul).

And oh.. just a side note they really have to work on the Engrish of the song. I know it’s a Korean song, but there are a lot of people who understand and speak perfect English who are listening to Kpop songs. It’s not a biggie really, but they owe it to their international fans to at least get the correct words. Fan-service ya’ll!

Anyhow.. this song really grows on you and it’s gotten it’s roots attached to me.. I kind of like it now.

Final Verdict: It’s not really a wow-kind of Kim Tae Woo song! (blame it on Love Rain for making me feel this way) But this song kind of grows on you! WARNING: DO NOT WATCH THE VIDEO! Unless you want to Lee Dong Wook, else it’s a waste of time!!!

Backtracks: Holding On To the End of the Night by Solid (MV and lyrics)

I am bringing back old Kpop songs to my blog. I know there are a lot of new song in the K-music industry. But it’s always nice to know the songs of the past. I think it would be nice too especially for new Kpop fans to appreciate not just Kpop but the Korean music in general.

Today, I am posting a song from the 90s. Actually you may have heard this song if you still remember Fly to the Sky, but they aren’t the original singers of the song. The song I am talking about it “Holding On to the End of the Night” (alternate title: After the End of Tonight). It was originally sung byย Solid.

Solid was one of the earliest Korean R&B groups in the 90s.. right about the the same time that Jodeci or Boys to Men was popular in the Western world. I actually wasn’t a fan of Korean music in the 90s. But I liked Fly to the Sky ย and this I liked this song… And well through some snooping I knew they weren’t the original singers of the song. Solid is an R&B group made Lee Joon, Kim Johan and Jeong Jaeyoon. I am familiar with Kim Johan as he is one of the Korean rnb/ballad singers I really like. He makes occasional appearances on the music shows, but not as often. Anyhow, this group is know for their soulful voice. However, they didn’t last too long — so many may not be familiar with them.

solid korean group

There are a lot of Korean singers who did covers of this song, I think… if I remember correctly JYJ was one of them.. or was it DBSK — I can’t really remember. But I like the original song just thes same so that is why I am sharing this one.

For this post, I am putting the lyrics, if you want to sing a long. Translations were made by askakorean@blogspot. Romanizations are done by me… so please credit chipskjaa@wordpress when using it.

Holding on to the End of the Night – Translation

I will never be able to see you again

My lips hugged your white shoulders
Although we loved like this, holding onto the end of this night
The last kiss might tremble in longing
To me, who arrived with empty hands, the gift the world gave me
It was you, I know, so I must endure

So my heart does not break
You must live happier than anyone else
Forgetting everything
So my love holding onto the end of this night does not become more pathetic than it is now
Don’t cry for me, I am ok.

[Narration]
Yes, perhaps
We since long ago have thought the inevitable separation will come to our love
But don’t cry
I will hold onto the end of this night
You must live on, always smiling like that
Please don’t cry, smile for me
Please

The last kiss might tremble in longing
To me, who arrived with empty hands, the gift the world gave me
It was you, I know, so I must endure

So my heart does not break
You must live happier than anyone else
Forgetting everything
So my love holding onto the end of this night does not become more pathetic than it is now
Don’t cry for me, I am okay.

Keeping this night that my heart shared with you
I must bury you for the moment
My tears are holding you now but
I must send you away with a smile so that you no longer feel pain
So my heart does not break, be happier than everyone
Forgetting everything
So my love holding onto the end of this night does not become more pathetic than it is now
Don’t cry for me, I am okay.

One Spring Day – 2AM (MV)

Yay! their officially back with a new track. I don’t know about you but I am happy to see 2AM back with a new song.

2am_One_Spring_Day

The new track is called One Spring Day.

The MV

One thing I really look forward when I know 2AM makes a come back is the story of their MV. I love how it always tells a story and not just a group singing the song showing their faces only.. though they did this in the past, but their concepts for their recent MVs have been different.

Most the stories in their MVs are sad, but I think to complement this song, they had to make one that is not so sad (well maybe a little bit). The MV is a bit confusing at first. But if you look at the title and if you finish the video, you would understand it. My take on the story is that there is a man revisiting different times of his relationship with the girl. It shows the happy and the sad parts of their relationships. He opens one door for each important moment of that relationship. But the catch is, he is just revisiting it and he can’t go back to the past because the girl is gone already — I think she is dead, because there are 2 scenes showing the girl that vision is blurred. Most of the time in Korean MVs, this scene means the someone is dead.. so I’m gonna make that guess. In the end, as they are all memories, he leaves and goes on with this life.

I am quite happy with this video. But not as impressed as I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me. I think that would still be the best video of 2AM in my opinion. However for this song, I like this video very much. It’s always fun watching videos of 2AM. I must be too sentimental and romantic for liking these videos!

PS… i love how innocent looking they are in white! Jo Kwon especially in his Harry Potter inspired glasses!

The Song

My first thoughts when I heard this song is that there was something vaguely familiar of the tune! I couldn’t quite place it at first, and then I later realized, it was the piano sequence in the verse. If you’re a fan of DBSK, you would remember their last Japanese song sang as 5 membersย Stand By U. Listen to it and you would know what I mean.. it sounds familiar doesn’t it?

I know though that Stand By U and One Spring Day are both different songs. But I think it’s because of that, I am not getting the song too much. Maybe my expectations ย were too high especially because I really liked I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me a lot!!! This song is good, but not as good as the last one. With the latter I had the “Oh my god I love it” reaction after I first heard it. With this, I guess it would take some time getting used to and some time to forget how similar it sounds to Stand By U (which I love by the way, so I need time to process this). But don’t worry the song is not bad at all!!

What I did realize though with this song is that 2AM is reinventing their sound again. I think that’s maybe what I like about their music because if you listen to their albums in the past and in the present, their songs are all different. To me most K-ballad groups all have the same kind of music which I find boring at times. But with 2AM I am never bored of their songs because each time it’s different. I always want to listen to their new song.

Final Verdict: I need to listen to this song again and again to forget that it sounds like another song I love. It’s not my favorite 2AM song though. But this song is a change from their past tracks. I love the MV! ๐Ÿ™‚

Woohyun (Infinite) and Lucia – Cactus (MV)

I don’t know what is it with me and feeling sentimental these days, but I am on a roll of ballad and sad songs.

woohyun_lucia

But I am glad I found this song. I love it! It’s the new duet featuring Woohyun (Infinite)ย and Lucia ์‹ฌ๊ทœ์„ . It’s called Cactus ์„ ์ธ์žฅ.

The Video

OMG! I love videos like this. I love it that Korean videos are now exploring this kind of story telling in their videos. Such a unique video for a nice song. I love how artistic it is. Whoever thought of this is pure genius!

The video shows two frames. And if you look at it closely and slowly follow the story of each frame, you would see that the top one tells the story from the girl’s point of view and the bottom frame tells the story of the guy. Both stories start at different times, the girl from the present (or could be the future) and the guy from the past. Both of the meet at a specific moment, when the guy was trying to break up with the girl. From the girls view, you will see that she is tracing back her steps, while the guy is moving forward. My take on the story is that the guy is sick and he was breaking up with the girl to keep her from feeling the pain. On the other hand, the girl can’t take the break up but later on realizes that the guy was really trying to protect her from being hurt too much. In the end the guy died, and the cactus is there to remind the girl of the love the man had for her.

I love how beautifully the story was made into the video. Especially with the frames telling different stories past and future, but were related to each other. This is effective story telling. I still can’t get over how nice the video was and how well the director played with the symbolism in the video. And let’s not forget the reference of the cactus in the video.

I’ve read that some would have liked to see both singers in the video, but I think this video is just the right thing the song needs. If they were present, they would have ruined the concept and story of the video… I think sometimes, you don’t need to see the singer of the song to appreciate a good song or video.

The Song

I love Infinite, so I was really looking forward to this collaboration. But when I learned that the title of the song was Cactus. I had to do a double take. But after listening to it, I couldn’t believe the symbolism of the song. The lyricist’s way of telling us the story of a cactus — and giving it life is very beautiful. Who would’ve have thought of relating that feeling to the cactus! (Also, we have to thank Loenent for making the translation!)

The melody of the song though, is a bit simple. Something that we might have heard before. But, the feeling of sadness is still there. Also, though I love Woohyun’s voice, I would have loved listening to more of Lucia in the song instead of just the last part. I think the part where they did they’re blending, Woohyun’s voice was too loud that I could barely hear Lucia’s voice. Their blending would have been nice if both had the right volume.

Final Verdict: I’d never thought I’d listening to a song called Cactus. But don’t let the title of the song fool you, because the lyrics are very meaningful. This is one of the best videos I’ve seen (so far) for this year. I love that Korean MVs are trying out new concepts and not just the same old things they done in the past.

One Shot – B.A.P (MV)

I’ve already made a post before about my feeling towards the increasing number of idol groups. I still feel the same, but I am always open to listening to their songs. I do like some of the new songs for new idol groups.. but I still don’t recognize most of them because of the increasing number.

bap one shot

For the year that I have been teaching here in Thailand, one group is really very popular. It’s B.A.P. I do know this group but I wasn’t really a fan of their music, though Power was a good one, but it still wasn’t doing it for me. Then there was Stop It. It sounded nice, but it was still a bubble gum pop song. When I knew they released a new song, I decided to give it one more go. And I think I quite like this song. It’s their recent single One Shot.

The Video

Boy was this one brutal video!!! And for an idol group to release this kind of video… but on the other hand, I think the video made a very good effort to tell the story. And I love the twist in the ending. I’m totally a sucker for twists in plots!! I was kind of surprised when I saw the video because of the excessive use of guns and blood! haha.. but at least it’s not the same old bubble gum pop aegyo video. Hay don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to see aegyo sometimes, just not in every idol group video!

But what I don’t get in this video is the yacht scene. Umm anyone care to explain? Sorry B.A.P fans, but I’d rather skip to the 26th second of the video. I know they are idols, but in that scene they looked too young. And the sexy girls at the back didn’t help much either. And why do I have to see that guy eating grapes that way?? Oh well I am not a B.A.P fan yet, so I guess that scene was for fan service… but what’s with the girls?

The Song

I know B.A.P is known for their power tracks. But their past singles were just too powerful and strong for me. That I couldn’t appreciate it that much. But for this song, I think it’s strong but at the same time, I could feel the vocals as well as hear the powerful rap. Although the group is known and acknowledged for their rappers abilities, they shouldn’t forget that there are some members who could belt a powerful tune.

I also liked that this song reminded me of some western hip hop tracks in the 90s and early 2000’s — think the likes of Lose Yourself (Eminem) and Gangster’s Paradise (Coolio). I guess I have to say B.A.P pulled it off. Now I kind of understand why my students go gaga over their songs — because it’s strong and it’s not the usual bubble gum pop song. I’m seeing B.A.P in a new light.

Final Verdict: I’m glad I gave B.A.P another try. I like this because it’s not only a rap track, but it’s also pays homage to the members who do the vocals. I hope their upcoming songs would be like this.. they maybe I’ll like them more!

Who’s ready for 2AM’s Comeback?? + Happy 5th Anniversary!

Yay! I can’t contain my excitement!

2AM is finally making a comeback next month!!!!

I have been waiting for this come back since their I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me. Although the boys were still active through individual promotions, variety shows and dramas, nothing beats them making music together.

2AM is actually one of those groups I really like. Yes they are a boyband, they can dance (well maybe not as good as other boy idol groups) but boy can they sing! I love the fact that they are an idol group but at the same time the songs they release are mostly ballads. It’s a ballad but it would still have high ranks on the chart.

The new album is called One Spring Day. From the look of the teaser, it could be a sad song. A set filled with pianos outgrown by roots and trees that are in full bloom — hmm it could mean recalling a love lost in the past? Ok so I’m just guessing. But I really can’t wait for this new album!

I’ve never been disappointed with their songs so my expectations are a bit high. I hope this would not be the first one! Can’t wait for March 5!

Oh and as a bonus… 2AM has been in the industry for 5 years already. This video is a video of that 5 year journey.

Oh how they’ve grown and matured since 2008. I hope they won’t stop bringing beautiful ballads. Congratulations!!!! Please don’t break up. Sorry for that statement but since DBSK broke up on their 5th year, I am almost always scared the idol groups I like will break up.. Please don’t!

2AM fighting!!!

Because of Different Times (์‹œ๊ฐ„์ด ๋‹ฌ๋ผ์„œ) – Standing Egg (Lyrics and Translation)

I am currently in love with this song!

Well actually I have long been a fan of Standing Egg. Next to Clazziquai Project and Winterplay, they are my 3rd favorite Korean Indie artist. I absolutely love their music. I’m and Egg-fan!

standing egg

Their new song is called Because of Different Times (์‹œ๊ฐ„์ด ๋‹ฌ๋ผ์„œ). There isn’t a video yet of the song on their website, so I’m just posting the audio.

The Song

The first thing I noticed when I got the Melon 100 Chart last week was that there was a Standing Egg song! I think they are becoming popular not which is good. So when I listened to this song, I immediately fell in love with it. One because of the melody (I love acoustic songs, something that Korean music doesn’t have too much) and another for the lyrics. Although my Korean is limited, I am surprised at myself because I understood the song without looking at the translations. And when I saw the translation, what I understood was correct! Hurray!!! I have to study more though.

Anyway, this song is a bit of a sad song, a song that a lot of people can relate too. Like I said before, I love sad songs.. I don’t know why. On the contrast, though the lyrics is sad, the melody is not quite sad. I think this is the time when one says, “It’s time to move on now and accept that it can’t happen anymore”. I love the song for the contrast in the melody and the lyrics.

Final Verdict: Another Standing Egg song I’m loving a lot! Something different from the Kpop songs that are so popular now. It’s a breath of fresh air.

Lyrics:

I actually made the effort to romanize this song! Haha.. not lazy today.. that’s how much I like it. I also found some of the translation on youtube, but some of the verses were missing. So I added the parts that were included and made a few changes. Thanks to Glicious0219@yt for translating most of it. If you take out the romanization and translations please credit: Glicious0219@yt and chipskjaa@wordpress.

Because of Different Times – Translation

At first, I couldn’t pamper you because I was busy
Later, I only gave you pain because I was a bad person
At the time, I didn’t know that the tears then would be the last

At the time, I couldn’t do much for you because I was so lacking
Now, I can’t do anything for you because you’re no longer here
At the time, I didn’t know nothing would come to matter if it wasn’t then

At that time, at that street, you are there
Now, at this street, I am here
We’re talking to each other from far away
I love you, I love you, I love you

At that time, you waited for me
Now, I wait for you
But we can’t meet because the times are different
I’m sorry, I’m sorry, Iโ€™m sorry, say goodbye

At the time, I only knew of myself because I was still young
I thought you would always be next to me
At the time, I didn’t know that your absence was my everything

At that time, at that street, you are there
Now, at this street, I am here
We’re talking to each other from far away
I love you, I love you, I love you

At that time, you waited for me
Now, I wait for you
But we can’t meet because the times are different
I’m sorry, I’m sorry, Iโ€™m sorry, say goodbye

At that time, at that street, Iโ€™m not there
Now, at that street, youโ€™re not there
We canโ€™t hear each other say from far away
I love you, I love you, I love you

At that time you loved me
Now, I love you
But we can’t meet because the times are different

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, Iโ€™m sorry, say goodbye

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 – Romanized

Soljikhage malhamyeon dalkomhan geon sireosseo.

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!
