Now even though I've slightly missed the moment for writing this post (considering that the song in question came out about a month ago), I have been wanting to talk about Infinite and my recently found fondness for them quite a while now. And what would be a more convenient way to start than with Hoya and Dongwoo's subgroup Infinite H and their debut song "Special Girl".
That Winter, The Wind Blows stars Song Hye Kyo and Jo In Sung are already busy promoting their new drama in various magazines. While Song Hye Kyo is glam rock edgy in the latest issue of High Cut, Jo In Sung shows his charming yet masculine side in February's Cine21.
JYJ's Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu are once again modelling for NII's Heart campaign, which, in the spirit of Valentine's Day, is this time is themed "I Want You". The boys are cheeky cupids as they play around in this fun-looking pictorial.
Yes, this is yet another Epik High post for Melody of Lyrics. And I'm not even going to pretend I'm not biased towards their music, because it should be obvious from the number of Epik High posts I've done for this series already.
Anyways, today I decided to talk about "Run", which was released in March 2010 in Epik High's special album Epilogue (without DJ Tukutz). If I'm being honest, the song didn't leave that big of an impression on me when I first heard it. But while the song steadily grew on me later on, I've always loved the motivational message it carries within the lyrics.
School 2013 star Lee Jong Suk is dressed in brightly coloured sportwear in Campus10's school themed photoshoot. Meanwhile in the second pictorial for December 2012 issue of Céci, Jong Suk has a boys night out with his buddy ZE:A's Kwanghee.
Hmm…I think this is the first time I've actually finished a sageuk drama. And that’s worth of notice since I remember very well a time, when I refused to watch any kind of historical drama, thinking it just ain’t my thing. While I’ve come a long way since then, sageuk still isn’t my favourite genre and I tend try to avoid period dramas that are centered around politics and/or are longer than 20 episodes. But I had to make a small exception with The Princess’ Man. A drama that takes true historic background, adds a tight political storyline and throws a tragic Romeo and Juliet-esque love story in the middle of it. It’s basically the best kind of sageuk you can find.
Power-hungry prince Su Yang (Kim Young Chul) plans to take the throne from his brother, Joseon’s 6th king. Knowing of his brother’s intentions the king joins forces with his most trusted subject Kim Jong Seo (Lee Soon Jae) to prevent Su Yang from taking the throne away from his young teenaged son. However, the king becomes ill and dies, leaving an opportunity for Su Yang to arrange a coup.
Meanwhile, unbeknownst to their parents, Su Yang’s daughter Se Ryung (Moon Chae Won) and Kim Jong Seo’s son Seung Yoo (Park Shi Hoo) fall in love. And due to a series of lies and misunderstandings, the lovers mistakenly believe they are to marry each other. But neither of them is aware of Su Yang’s real plan to kill Kim Jong Seo and his whole family, including Seung Yoo.
As you might know, I like to try out different Korean variety shows every once in a while, either to get a break from watching dramas or just to relax after a tiring day spent in lectures. And so I recently discovered a new show for myself - MBC Every1's Weekly Idol, which is a funny little variety series introducing different idol groups and singers.
In the latest issue of Cosmopolitan, Queen Of Ambition star Kwon Sang Woo is a dark and mysterious masked figure, while in contrast Pledis Entertainment stars Son Dan Bi, Kahi, Hello Venus, NU EST and After School are playing around and having fun.
Hot Potato is a two-person (Kim C - vocal, guitar; Go Beom Jun - bass) band I've heard about occasionally and remembered by it's funny sounding name. Yet for a long time I had not listened to their music. It was only in in October when they returned a new album "Who Doesn't Like Sweet Things" that I came across "Pillow", which I started to really like. It is a slow folk rock song that captures the tenderness of Kim C's vocals, while spreading a strong message via lyrics. The lyrics were written by Kim C.
