Replying to [personal profile] svilleficrecs made me want to post a bunch of CN Blue songs.

Have them here )

I kind of want to buy the concert video. Heeeeeeelp. I am not getting sucked into kmusic into addition to kdramas!!!!
dangermousie: (KO 3an Guo: Xiu/SX)
I figured out fairly quickly (OK, I am lying, it took me 20 eps or so :P) into KO 3an Guo that Dong Cheng Wei is a real-life rock band. And Xiu a.k.a. fake Liu Bei (who is fast becoming my fave character in the drama) is DCW's guitarist. I probably should have known from the moment they were doing close-ups of his hands playing guitar - they tend to avoid it like the plague with actors who are only pretending to know how to play.

Check out this MV. I totally like the way they sound.



Apparently they are an 'underground' rock band (whatever that means) formed in high school who stuck around ever since and apparently Jiro Wang is a member who used to be lead vocals until he got drafted into Farenheit (though apparently he's also still with DCW? Not sure how that works).

Here they are performing the end theme of K.O. 3an Guo with Pets Ceng, who plays Shang Xiang in the drama:



Also, totally random, but while looking at stuff on wiki, the Jiro article says "When he was 18, his father died, leaving him with his mother to pay the family's debt. This forced him into the commercial and modeling industry." How insane. I thought that only happened in dramas, but apparently not.

Speaking of Jiro - I started The X-Family and really didn't care for ep 1 - I can't say it is more OTT than KO 3an Guo, because KO 3an Guo was pretty insane, but in KO 3an Guo I knew who the characters were and had a structure due to knowing about Three Kingdoms (and a lot of fun came from seeing that classic so spoofed) but with X-Family, I do not have the same structure so I am pretty lost and there is nothing for me grab on as a lifeline in the sea of insanity.

However, I always give at least 5 eps to a drama, especially a long one, and I persevered. And I am glad I did because I really liked ep 2 - I think culture shock has worn off an I am settling in. Plus how could I not be lenient towards a drama that has Jiro look like the dorkiest dork who ever dorked:



And who turns into this when his powers are released. The powers of crazy styling, I presume :P



Plus, Xiu! I have the world's biggest crush on his character in K.O.3an Guo.



So much fun.

What is it with Taiwan and creating groups based on fictional characters the group members portrayed?

I thought F4 was an abberation, but I found out today that the five guys who play the Wu Hu Jiang (a.k.a. Five Tiger Generals) in K.O. 3an Guo were all put in a band called...what else? Wu Hu Jiang...during the filming of the drama and continued as a group since.

That's. Sort. Of. Insane.

Also, because my sole exposure* to these guys is via KO 3an Guo, I am left wondering whether they kick audience members in the teeth in-between songs.

* I've seen George Hu, who plays Guan Yu, in two other things before, and he was also a martial artist in one of them.

Oh, and also Zhou Yu's band Champion is a real-life group, but it was a group before the drama, they just stuck them all in there, which is nowhere nearly as weird.

Oh, and the actresses who play the sisters Da Qiao and Xiao Qiao are sisters in real life. Heh.

In news that do not have to do with KO, Doremii has just moved An Xiang a.k.a. Dark Fragrance from their list of possible future projects to current projects. OMG!!! I feel like I am the only non-Chinese fluent individual who is obsessed with watching it, but obsessed I am. Huang Xiao Ming, my first cdrama crush, in suits and angsting and with a happy ending! Bring it on!

Have the closing theme:

dangermousie: (Gloria - Dong Ah broken by timescout)
Gloria has given me a rather unhealthy fixation on Lee Chun Hee. Take that, add my effort of trying to refrain from watching eps 33-34 until subs for 35-36 are also out, and sprinkle in my youtube obsession and you get this.

"This" being a MV for some emo kpop song starring LCH. If you ever wanted to see Thugboy in emo scarves sobbing over a woman, this one is for you. (If you want to see scarveless Thugboy sobbing over a woman, just tune in to Gloria).



My crush is so severe I am even tempted by Smile You, a.k.a. previously known as the kdrama Mousie is least likely to touch even if every other entertainment option in the world was on fire. A 50 ep family drama starring The Nemesis, i.e. Lee Min Jung, my least favorite drama actress ever (how badly do I dislike her? Suffice it to say I am probably skipping Midas because she costars and that stars my supreme obsession Jang Hyuk). Well - let me modify this. Not even for LCH will I suffer through that. Not even if he got naked and covered in chocolate. At the same time. Maybe then. The only reason I am even considering this is because he apparently has his own story and OTP. So, kind flisties - can anyone point me towards a direction of a SY guide which would tell me which eps to watch for best LCH action? I made one for East of Eden, for those who only wanted shippiness without sitting through almost 60 eps, so I wonder if that sort of thing exists for SY.

Linked by [livejournal.com profile] bluviolet, I confess this song does sound lovely and they are not wearing spangles or grabbing each other and seem to be able to really sing.



A couple more from the same concert )

I am not checking out any more because I know how idol groups operate - I am sure I will find spangles and groping sooner than later. But I confess this was all really nice. (I seem to like Korean singers better when they go to Japan - I love Kim Jung Hoon's Japanese stuff better than his Korean one).

Also, I sort of cannot tell any of them apart except for Jaejoong who is the sole instance I have ever seen a real live human being look like an anime character. It's kinda unreal:



(stolen from omona)

Isn't he supposed to be in Poseidon? I really liked him in Sunao ni Narenakute - it probably helped that by the end of the drama his wasn't the only character I wanted to kill.

1. In 'kpop fans are crazy' news of the day, omona posted something on Se7en (what kind of name is it anyway, seriously?) and the write-up mentioned that once he admitted he is dating Han Byul, membership of his fanclub dropped by 100k asap. People are insane. I have no opinion of Se7en's talent (have never heard him, seen him, and would not recognize his picture if presented with it. All I know is he is a kpop idol with a freaky name) but seriously - do kpop fans expect their objects of idolatry to remain virgins forever or hit on their underaged jaibait selves instead of having normal relationships? Craaaazy. Btw, that is why I like Han Byul (you may have seen her as secondary girl in Oh My Lady) - I don't think she is much of an actress but anyone who can put up with dating an idol for 8 years, most of them in secret and the rest with insane and angry fangirl stalker hordes, has my metaphorical hat off to her, especially since they are still together.

2. I found myself with some time and watched ep 3 of Gumiho Girlfriend. Hmmm. I still find myself fast-forwarding (what is the point of the Aunt and Chow Yun Fat lookalike, again?) and I still do not care for anyone but at least I had a moment of strong emotion. A pity that emotion was the desire to stab Dae Woong in the face after he dumped Gumiho on the river. WTF who does that? Ugh.

3. Being on a mini-Wallace Huo binge, I decided to check out A Mobile Love Story. But being canny and knowing how cdramas tend to devolve into "everyone dies! painfully!" no matter the fluffy premise, I decided to be smart and check out the last ep first. Good move on my part - he married his old ex who was dying and she died during the wedding in his arms. And he didn't get his OTP either. And now I saved myself 20 eps of watching with such and ending in store. On the plus side, Wallace is pretty. Yay.



4. Even though I haven't progressed much into Baker King since last post, being distracted, I continue to love it. Though I am beginning to suspect Ma Jun is hounding Tak Gu because he bears a 'love that dare not speak its name' towards him. Seriously.

Proof in caps )

But who could blame him? Tak Gu breaks so beautifully!



More samples here )

We also just met Eugene and I think I may be shipping her with Ma Jun.

Scene of their meeting )

4. Also, mmmm, secondary OTP of Partner. I know he is an adulterer with generally iffy morals and she is totally OK she is sleeping with a married man but I SHIP THEM SO HARD IT'S INSANE.

Sexy sexy sexy )

I am stealing this from [livejournal.com profile] mishane. It's a DBSK Japanese MV starring Narimiya Hiroki being ridiculously sexy and making out in a major major way with some model girl.

My pulse is still climbing down to normal.

Warning: probably NSFW.
