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].

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.

TVXQ Tuesday: Ride On

Seoulbeats-e1367375267331

This one is so infectious and funky! I LOVE THESE GUYS!!! And they seriously break it down and dance the crap out of this one. Sorry….I am just a little excited. When I see Junsu grooving like this coupled with that spectacular voice I tend to get carried away. That little growl or whatever you want to call it that he emits around the 1:14 mark just sets the tone for me and prepares me (somewhat) for the hip thrust he throws at us around the 1:31 mark. Seriously Junsu we are just barely over a minute into the song and you do THAT to us?!
