The Comeback: Sexy, Free & Single

Ok, Super Junior is set to have another comeback, like, real soon (July 1). I'm sure all the ELFs (Everlasting Friends - Super Junior Fans) out there are freaking the heck out and causing mass chaos in general. In the teaser for their comeback song, "Sexy, Free & Single" Super Junior is still stuck in their weird, confined room? Area? Undisclosed location??? The boys are singing "Sexy, free and single. I'm ready to mingle." in their SUJU robot voice, yes, it's kinda weird (gotta admit it). Let's face it, although they may be talented singers, the songs they generate tend to sound all the SAME! Robotic techno, mashed with 360 degree cameras, mashed with 10 members and you've got SM Entertainment's recipe for easy cash $$$.

But let's not get totally down. I will say, SM Entertainment does a great job producing concept photos...yet, the concept photos don't even have anything to do with the music video! After raging in frustration for a minute, we will move forward! Lets admire the concept photos in all their artistic glory. It's not what American mainstream would really go for, it's too "feminine" and whimsical for a pop group, but it has all the ELFs in a tizzy.

pronounced: tah-mah-got-chi

Defined by Wikipedia:

1.A Tamagotchi is a keychain-sized virtual pet simulation game for children. 2.combining the Japanese word "たまご" (tamago), which means "egg", and the English word "watch"(ウオッチ uocchi). 3.Tamagotchis are a small alien species that deposited an egg on Earth to see what life was like, and it is up to the player to raise the egg into an adult creature.[3] The creature goes through several stages of growth, and will develop differently depending on the care the player provides, with better care resulting in an adult creature that is smarter, happier, and requires less attention.


My teacher is such a prick! He took my Tamagotchi away in class...

My Tamagotchi is so needy...I'm just gonna discipline it a lot.

Does everyone remember Tamagotchis?! They were huge in like, 1996, every kid wanted them and every kid needed them. I remember they got banned in school because they were distracting (along with Pokemon cards) There were also several knock-offs, but what you really wanted was the real Tamagotchi by Bandai. To be honest, I was never very good at raising mine, my pet always seem to die before the full two weeks was up and then I damaged my egg thing by dropping it in a bowl of soup ^-^; So so sad...

K-Pop Obsession: After School's Flashback

So this week's obsession is After School's comeback song, "Flashback." Now the leader of After School, Kahi, has officially "graduated" and has gone on to do solo things. I miss her so much! I really think she put a lot of creative energy and input into the group (like Bang and Shampoo). I wasn't too impressed with After School's comeback this time, they usually do something that requires a lot of training for a great performance. Yes, they are one of the hottest girl groups out there, they really turned up the heat in this one. But the song is only meh. Nothing extraordinary or really exciting...just really really sexy and confusing...why is that guy tied up? Why did you shoot him sexy Uee?

K-Pop Obsession: f(x) Electric Shock

I've been bad. Not posting as much as I should have...oh well...A bunch of music videos have been released lately. SNSD (Girl's Generation Paparazzi), Boyfriend (Love Style), and U-Kiss (Believe). None of them I'm really crazy about, but f(x) just released their new album and single "Electric Shock". I am more crazy about their concept photos than their actual song. The music video isn't very creative, but the song still gives you a beat to dance to! Amber is still my favorite out of the group, I was surprised she didn't do any rapping, but actual singing.

K-Pop Obsession: BigBang's Monster

For the release of BigBang's Alive repackaged album, the boys have a new music video called "Monster." Very different outfit choices and odd accessories. I still love the song, some of the rapping sounds a bit odd. The word "monster" is really emphasized by the lightness of their eyes. Go BigBang! I love you!

Princess of China MV

I really don't know what to really say about this music video with Rihanna and Coldplay's "Princess of China"...should I be offended? Is it awesome? Doesn't really make sense to me how anything in this video relates to the song besides the title. Then again, stuff like this always happens. I just think, if they're going to do this, they should really go all out.

BONUS!!! Niki Minaj's "Your Love":

K Drama - 49 Days

Network: SBS
Broadcasted:March 16, 2011 - May 19, 2011
Lead Actors: Lee Yo Won, Nam Gyu Ri, Jung Il Woo, Jo Hyun Jae, Bae Soo Bin

My Rating: ♥♥♥♥/5

After seeing lead actress, Lee Yo Won, in the historical drama "The Great Queen Seonduck" it's hard to picture her acting in a modern drama. I don't think she's the typical korean beauty but I do recognize her as a very talented actress. I still think she is way too skinny! Just take a look at her legs! Sticks! Sticks I tell ya!

Like any other Korean drama, this storyline is just one twist of plot line after another. To explain it to someone would only confuse them further, so what I always tell people is, "You have to watch it from the beginning!" There is no use trying to explain it to someone unless you basically want to tell the story from beginning to end with every little detail. It is a fantasy drama involving reapers, corporate take over and lost love.

Basic Synopsis:Two completely different women find themselves caught together by a premature accident involving Ji Hyun. She has the perfect life, loving parents, a best friend and fiance when she falls into a coma and becomes a ghost walking the earth, learning the terrible secrets about her so called "perfect life." She is given 49 days to find three people who would truly cry for her so she can have a second chance at life.
