dangermousie: (Young Warriors of the Yang Clan - Four)


Seven and his OTP, that's who! Sorry, Four, I still love you and Lady Doc together but as far as shipping goes, you are now taking second place to Seven/Lady Robber.

Here be cuteness )

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have the first ep of Thorn Birds with subs to watch.

Oh, and not related to anything, but this Buhwal song is beyond amazing. Have it. I've been listening to it non-stop for at least a dozen times.



Lee Seung Chul's voice gives me shivers. And Kim Tae Won's songs really are something else. I hope he gets better soon!

You know how I was obsessing about Rock Rock Rock over the weekend and was binging on Dream High today?

Imagine my shock that the song DH uses for its song-off meet between two of its characters is the song that was featured so prominently in RRR.

Here are Wooyoung and Kim Su Hyun going at it:



Here is Buhwal with Lee Seung Chul doing it:



I got to say I prefer the original (i.e. the Buhwal/LSC version - or at least as close to it as I can get since I have no access to their 1987 album) - I am always a fan of raspy voices and rock, plus LSC's voice is all sorts of insane. And the emotion is much more there. But I was shocked by (a) how much I liked DH's version and (b) how well Kim Su Hyun can sing as he is not a singer at all - I believe he got a bit of vocal training for the role but that is it. Of course, this further solidified the status of this song as a complete earworm that just won't leave my head. So I decided to share the earworm in the hopes of curing it thusly :)

A couple more of Buhwal/Lee Seung Chul songs just because )

Probably because you get to see things that are normally verbotten in kdramas - rock music! drugs! suicide attempts! premarital cohabitation (in high school, no less)! jail time for crimes actually committed!



Won't someone think of the children!

And also because of No Min Woo's performance - like [livejournal.com profile] mookiehyun, I have previously thought he was a rock take on Kim Hyun Joong - a gorgeous guy made out of solid wood. That was probably an unfair assumption, since the one previous role I've seen him was in MGIAG which demanded nothing of him but to be pretty - the role's literal requirements were probably "humanoid-shaped block of wood." In RRR, he is actually given something to do other than to stand looking vaguely pained while staring at the heroine, and oooooooh boy - he seriously blew my socks off. (And if I were an unmarried lady, probably other bits of clothing too).

Anyway, this is a long version of "please watch RRR - it's only 4 eps and pure awesome".

And even if you won't here are caps from two of my favorite scenes. One because it's my favorite scene in the drama ('tis the shipper in me, I admit) and the other because I am a sucker for rain scenes well done.

Rain farewells )

And here is my favorite scene. It made me almost understand the appeal some ladies find in really screwed-up trainwreck guys. Almost. (Though seeing that during their first meeting he spent all the time talking about another woman, and she had to drag him home because he was so drunk, she probably wasn't under delusions about what she was getting into).

If you date a rocker, maybe you'll get to record a part of their album and they'll be psychotically hot and needy. Still, a banker is probably a more sensible choice )

I have a ton more caps so expect more RRR posts as soon as I sort through them. Meanwhile have a clip from a 2002 Buhwal performance.

I am barely an ep into Rock Rock Rock, a 4-episode special drama about Kim Tae Won, the guitarist of famous Korean rock band Buhwal, and I am obsessed!



So freaking good! It probably helps that I much prefer a 'proper' band like a rock one to the manufactured idol ones and you don't really see much of the former in kdramas (even when they try to have an 'indie' musician like Mugyul in MSOAN, it's not really indie - it sounds poppy just the same). Plus, I am always a sucker for the 'rise of a troubled musician' stories.

Also, the music - I really love. I am off to find Buhwal performances on youtube.

I didn't find many vids of the drama on youtube, but here is a scene from a later ep:



I have no idea if it's Kim Tae Won's vocals and No Min Woo is lypsynching to them, or it's NMW singing himself, but whoever's voice that is - I want to roll around in it.

No Min Woo, who plays the lead, apparently got picked by the Kim Tae Won himself because he knows how to play the guitar properly (NMW is a relative newbie to acting but he was a long-time member of Trax, a rock band created as a result of SM Entertainment's desire to branch out beyond idol groups - so sort of a rock band? Only manufactured? And with hot people? Hmmmm. Semi-rock then :P). I've previously seen NMW in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, where I spent what little of the drama I've seen (4 eps), wishing his cool character was the hero instead. I didn't notice much about him there though other than major hotness, because MGIAG didn't give much to him to do. Well, RRR does give him plenty of things to do and he is really really good in the role. Really good. When you combine his potential with those looks and the cool vibe, plus good choice in projects (I am really looking forward to seeing him in Midas), he is probably the drama newcomer I am interested in most.

In case you aren't sure whether No Min Woo is your cup of tea, here he is playing drums shirtless from some performance or another:
