The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 289

I have always believed that G.O was (and still is) a consummate student of music. Ever learning and perfecting his own art, I have to guess that his music collection is more vast and wide than the oceans between us. Indeed he is extremely well-versed in music and has covered the songs of many music legends, east and west. As many of you know, there were often those times when during a variety show or in-studio radio show appearance, he was asked to sing and I have to believe there were times he was prepared to do so. But there were times when he most likely was not and was asked to sing off-the-cuff as it were. Live. At that moment. During the broadcast. I think the SBS Ten Ten Club broadcast of 15 July 2010 was one of those off-the-cuff moments when he regaled the audience with a few lines from DBSK’s  주문 [Mirotic].

When Your Bias Stakes His Claim

HLQh7

I have to be honest. At this time last year, I thought there was no way anyone in Korean entertainment (music, movies, drama or otherwise) was going to topple Rain from the throne in my fangirl kingdom. If you would have asked me if it this could ever happen, I would have unequivocally answered ‘No’! So please imagine my own shock when it actually did happen. And, it happened with a force and fury I was not even prepared for. I have been asked by a sweet follower of the blog who has now become a treasured friend, to expound on the how, the why and the when MBLAQ’s G.O swooped in, staked his claim as my one true bias, and yes, promptly stole me away from his former mentor, Rain. So Endang, dear…I write this post for you.♥

TVXQ Tuesday: 믿어요 (Believe)

1_Triangle_w2

Tri-Angle was TVXQ’s first Korean studio album and Believe the first cut from that album. Believe is a gentle and tender love song. And…..Junsu opens it, and opens it so sweetly. The song was not released as a single, yet it still seems to be a fan fave when performed on various Korean music programs. It has, I dare say, the absolute perfect pauses to usher in those amazing fanchants. KIM JUN SU!!! ^^

TVXQ Tuesday: Try My Love

tvxq hot

As I slowly make my way through the vast discography of these five men, I notice one thing for sure. They were never bound by one certain genre of music. They have given us so many different versions of themselves and I so appreciate their openness to lacing various genres of music into their catalog. Admittedly, I love the ballads. But, having Junsu as my bias here and my amazing OTB (one true bias) G.O with MBLAQ, you have to know that I have a special weakness for soulful R&B. Try My Love is just that.

A New Beginning – The Fangirl Adventure Log

Fangirl Adventure Log Header 1

On May 19, 2014 I will have been here occupying this space in the blogosphere for one year having decided to create a homage to the lovely male stars in both the Korean drama and Korean pop worlds. All total I featured a big whopping 5 ‘shots.’ Not much of an accomplishment, however, they were all worthy of having a spot in this weak homage! I can say with honesty I loved on each of them very much and can only hope I did them some (a little) justice.

TVXQ Tuesday: Holding Back The Tears

Since I have been focusing specifically on their music for these posts, I did not realize that the men of TVXQ filmed and released a drama back in 2006 called Vacation. See, you learn something new every day. And as I am still making my way through ALL of their music as a 5-man group, I rely on discography lists to assist me.  This is how I found the gorgeous Holding Back The Tears.

TVXQ Tuesday: You Only Love

TVXQ Lovely

Ok, I admit that was a bit of a long hiatus from my TVXQ Tuesdays. I also admit to being derailed by MBLAQ’s comeback and G.O being cast in not one, but two musicals. And, well, going to Seoul and seeing G.O. I’ve been a little preoccupied, to say the least. But, I am returning now with a lovely ballad from TVXQ’s third Korean studio album, O-Jung.Ban.Hap.
