DBSK’s Horizon Dance. ♥

May 26, 2008

Credit: Mickytoho @ Youtube (I LOVE this girl; she uploads so much great and fun-to-watch DBSK-related goodies with an emphasis (of course!) on Micky. Plus, she translates and subs too, which deserves an ILUSMPLZMARRYME plea! XDD Do drop by and subscribe to her/drop her a line of thanks!)   

ROFLMAO. Nuff said.

Anyhow, I sense a new dance wave coming over Korea, as I imagine Casseiopeans make up more than half the population of Korea and as a result, will gleefully dance like so everywhere, because they want to be just like their oppas. *heaves a massive sigh* 

Although I love my Dong Bang boys, this dance is so =.=”””” and headbanging-inducing. And do the boys not look like the biggest dorks while moving from side to side? Yes, yes they do. But I love me some dorks, so BRING ON THE DORKY MOVES, I say.

Anyhow, I’ve read somewhere that this is a dance routine found solely during the group’s dance rehearsals/practices, which fills me with great joy, because just look at the head-swinging and the butt-waving and their legs moving from side to side and Jae failing in the back (he’s not obviously failing or anything to that extent, but he always seems … a little slower than the rest). ILUSM JAEJOONG.    

If you can’t watch the video, I’ll try to recap, but do keep in mind that I’m COMPLETELY fail at dancing and that I can’t describe to save my life. 

Anyhow, the vid starts off with the boys talking, and at 00:45, Changmin slowly and reluctantly gets up to demonstrate a certain ingenious dance move (invented by the one and only Monkey boy Micky Yoochun) the Dong Bang boys have been practicing during their rehearsals. And so, at 00:49, the MADNESS BEGINS! 

To imitate, begin by standing up straight with your legs together and your arms spread out and parallel to the ground. Then, when the music begins, leave one leg vertical (say, your left) and kick the other leg (your right) out to the right (so that it’s diagonal). Immediately after, bring your right leg back so that it’s vertical, and kick your left leg out to the left. Meanwhile, swing your head from side to side, so that you’re always facing the same direction as the leg being kicked out to the side. To perfect this move, ensure your arms are always spread out to your sides and left parallel to the ground, and ensure that you’re knees are bent, so as to allow for maximum butt-twisting.

You got that?

Excellent. You’re now ready to dance the night away, record yourselves and upload your vids onto Youtube and other video-hosting sites so as to contribute to the new dance movement that this is bound to start up.

And all I can say to that is … DORKS FTW, YO.

I Fail at Going on Hiatus.

May 25, 2008

Oh maaaaaaaan, I am the ultimate fail when it comes to going on hiatus. *headdesk*

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!

Anyway, it appears that I’m back forever, because I got over the rumours the day after I wrote my “Hiatus FORREALZZZZ” post. *faints*

Anyway, you wanna see the ultimate narcissistic/attention-whorish/fail at English individual whom I love like vair vair much? Go under the cut, mate.

Hiatus FOR REALZZZZZ.

May 22, 2008

Heyyyy lovelies!

I’ve decided that I really need a break from fandom.

A long break.

A while back, I wrote of my fears of being too deep into fandom. No joke, fandom literally sucks you in, and once you’re in, you’re probably never getting back out. And I’ve reached the point where I’m no longer rational enough to consider myself a fan.

It SUCKS to cross the line from being a fan to being a fanatic. Honestly, you’re constantly feeling disgusted with yourself, and it’s a completely gross feeling.

I never actually thought that I’d reach the point where rumours would actually affect me. I should’ve known that it’d happen eventually, because when I’m into something, I’m really into it, and I put my entire heart, mind, body and soul into it.

It’s unfortunate, but I’m planning to just swing with it. I’ll focus on preparing myself for uni in the fall and focus on getting a job. And hopefully, I’ll be back before long! *fingers crossed* 

And don’t worry, I probably won’t completely disappear from fandom. You’ll get random comments from me from time to time. And maybe the 50 odd posts or so in the next few months.

Anyhow, thanks for reading! Your funny search terms and whatnot have definitely brought me great pleasure – *Bear hugs the person who tried to look for “yamapi teeth”*

P.S. PASee and CANDee, you’ll still get massively long emails from me, of course, because I’ll FINALLY HAVE TIME TO WRITE THEM and because ILUSM. *rejoices*

*GASP* How could I forget?!??! Before I disappear, I present you with the following gifs/pics under the cut and taken from here.

Heechul ♥ Yunho.

May 21, 2008
ALL CREDITS GO TO COOLSMURF. Link to his post found HERE.

U-Know Yunho and Kim Hee Chul mistaken as couple

DBSK leader U-Know Yunho revealed recently that he broke up with his girlfriend because of Kim Hee Chul from Super Junior.

In a recent episode of SBS “Star Show” program, U-Know revealed that he had a girlfriend during his trainee days. But he proceeded by saying, “But because of Hee Chul hyung, we had a misunderstanding and eventually parted.”

“There was once when my girlfriend spotted me and Kim Hee Chul at a coffee joint and thought that I was cheating on her. Things just got from bad to worse and we eventually broke up.”

Yunho explained further, “Hee Chul hyung had long hair at that time and when I am always with him, he would always wear a pink jacket. I tried to explain many times that it was Hee Chul hyung, but she didn’t believe me and we parted.”

ROFLMAO. HOW GREAT IS THIS.

As usual, this cracked-up catlover never fails to make me laugh.

And what’s even funnier is that this situation is SO PLAUSIBLE. XDDDDD

… I must do a pimp post on Heechul one day. Except, just one pimp post most definitely won’t be enough. This boy requires CONSTANT PIMPAGE.

Rationality is KEY.

May 21, 2008

Okay, I’m feeling much more rational now (*stares pointedly at PAS* XDDDDD). Anyhow, whether or not Junsu and Taeyeon ARE together or NOT, I’d much prefer him with the “mother” of SNSD than anyone else. And they do make a rather cute couple YAY, Junsu found a girl shorter than him.

Honestly, Junsu, you should just chase after his own happiness. Don’t let anyone stop you, big boy. If you’re happy being with Taeyeon, then be with Taeyeon. Don’t let our petty fangirling, our petty whining, our PETTINESS in general, stop you – it’s neither OUR place nor OUR time to prevent you from attaining that happy place.

I wouldn’t wish ANY bad at all on any of the Dong Bang boys. Actually, allowing them to date, to marry, to procreate (XDDDD), to lead happy lives with their soulmates is the least I can do as a fan who’s been given the awesome opportunity to experience their music. I pity future generations if they never have the chance to be completely taken over by a group as awesome as DBSK, with members as hardworking and as humble as these boys are.

Likewise, I won’t deny that SNSD isn’t, per se, the most talented group I’ve ever come across, but they’re also VERY hardworkers. As a result, I’d LOVE for them to be happy to – to, for once, not have to think about what the fans want, but to chase after their own happiness. I know that what I’m saying isn’t completely rational, as being in the limelight forces this sort of pressure onto you – the pressure of having to maintain the image you’ve been given. And I’m aware that two popular celebrities dating COULD have the potential to ruin their respective images, as well as lose them a massive percentage of their respective fanbases. And I’m aware that neither Junsu nor Taeyeon would want to wish this on their respective groups.

BUT, as fans, we’re given so much power. We have the ability to DICTATE their careers, the power to say, “NO, you’re not worth my time”. Most importantly, we have the power to dictate their level of happiness. Celebrities lead a hard life in that: a) they’re given very little privacy, b) they’re constantly under public scrutiny and c) whatever they do is dictated by management, and whatever management orders them to do is governed by the thought of maintaining, or better yet, increasing their fanbases. As a result, pleasing one’s fans is the top priority in a celebrity’s life.  

So, please, knowing that we’re that important to both Junsu and Taeyeon already, why not LET them be happy? Why complain when they show affection? Why try to tear them down? Why destroy their happiness?

If you can do ALL THAT without batting an eye, please don’t call yourselves a fan. You clearly don’t deserve that esteemed title.

In conclusion, rationality is key. And really, you’ll find that once you start thinking with a rational frame of mind, Junsu/ Jaejoong/ Yunho/ Eeteuk/ Micky/ Heechul (ROFLMAO)/ Siwon/ etc having girlfriends/fiances/wives isn’t all that terrible. Just think of it as … maintaining their respective family lines, in addition to, well, keeping their coveted genes in the gene pool. Because, honestly, I rather like the thought of mini me (a.k.a my future daughter) being able to fawn over a mini Junsu/ Jaejoong/ Yunho/ Eeteuk/ Micky/ Heechul (ROFLMAO x 2)/ Siwon/ etc.

Okay, back to studying geo. XDDDDDD

FHDAJFH ANGER. XD *flails*

May 20, 2008

NOTE: I understand that leaving this post in is rather hypocritical of me (If you’ve no clue what I’m talking about, refer to this). Still, it serves as a great reminder that really, as a fan, I’m not perfect.

… But, I can try, y/y?

Taeyeon + Junsu = TaeSu

And I shouldn’t be jealous. Actually, I don’t do jealousy.

I’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUSI’MNOTJEALOUS

Oh FARK, I’m ridiculously jealous.

Kay, geo kicks Junsu’s butt in every way, shape, form.

 

Except fecking geo can’t sing or dance.

 

FECKFECKFECK.

To Make the Magic Last More Than Just One Night … ♥

May 9, 2008

[Credits go to Encomion @ Youtube] ♥

Have you ever heard Changmin sing in English?! Because, he’s got undeniably GREAT pronunciation. I actually understood more than 95% of his song, which I’m not used to at all when it comes to DBSK.  

And yes, while his English is commendable and while I will definitely worship it later on in this post, I’d first like to draw your attention to the fact that Changmin is singing at a low pitch. This proves it – he doesn’t have to sing those high, pitchy notes all the time. Actually, I’m probably in the minority when it comes to praising Changmin’s high notes – I can’t stand them at times, while others LOVE them and I’m sure, put all his songs on repeat. Yeah, his premium solo, a.k.a Wild Soul? It’s been deleted off my iPod, because I can’t stand all the pitchy screaming and ear-destroying vocals. Come to think of it, I think I only listened to it once before condemning it to purgatory, otherwise known as the “Let’s avoid this music but keep it anyway for the sake of having it on my harddrive” folder. I’m so supportive of him. ^^

But yes, the huskiness and fullness of his voice is really quite appealing. And I love the emotional depth of his voice – even if I had no clue who was singing at all, I’d be mightily impressed by the bitterness evident in his voice. Most of all though, I’m incredibly impressed by his extensive range. We KNOW this boy has the ability to sing really high – in fact, Jae’s mentioned that he’s the only one who can reach all the notes on “Wild Soul”; the others are incapable of singing such high notes with the same level of broadness and depth as their low notes. While I won’t deny that Changmin’s high notes aren’t easy to listen to, it awes me that he can even make NOISES at that high of a pitch, and to be able to sing full verses that high with literally the same amount of fullness as his lower notes is commendable, and really worthy of my praise.

Additionally, his English is AMAZING, and I really can’t get over how understandable this song is. Actually, I’m a massive massive massive fan of K-pop, so it doesn’t bother me when I can’t understand the lyrics to a song; my only beef is when the song’s in ENGLISH and I can hardly understand due to pronunciation issues. Whereas I don’t care too much for Korean lyrics or romanizations, English lyrics are very important to me, and I like being able to understand them AND sing along with them. But yes, his pronunciation is blardy fantastic, and even those hard-to-pronounce words such as “through” (even the multitalented CJSH hasn’t quite been able to pronounce this word the way it’s supposed to be pronounced, as evidenced by their version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love”), he manages to mask any mispronunciation with the thickness and huskiness of his voice. 

Actually, I find that it’s best to have a huskier voice when singing in another language, due to its ability to disguise any pronunciation mishaps. Various artists like BoA and Uno Misako have very clear, articulate voices, and as a result, it’s really quite easy to be very critical of their English/Engrish. The same goes for Jae, whose sometimes nasally voice, but ALWAYS ridiculously clear and articulate, makes it really easy for me to find faults and describe them in great detail. On the flip side, Koda Kumi has a really great, strong, husky voice, so the majority of her mispronunciations aren’t as noticeable.

Just Once is attributed to both Quincy Jones and James Ingram. I’m actually not too sure who owns the song, but check out Ingram’s 1981 performance of it here. Although Changmin’s version is not of the same calibre, due to language issues and overall, the lack of experience, I’d have to say he held his own and did relatively well.  

What do you think?

Just Once (lyrics taken from here)

I did my best
But i guess my best wasn’t good enough
‘Cause here we are back where we were before
Seems nothing ever changes
We’re back to being strangers
Wond’ring if we ought to stay or head on out the door

Chorus:
Just once
Can we figure out
What we keep doin’ wrong?
Why we never last for very long
What are we doing wrong?

Just once
Can’t we find a way to fin’lly make it right?
To make the magic last for more than just one night
If we could just get to it
I know we could break thru it

I gave my all
But I think my all may have been too much
‘Cause Lord knows
We’re not getting anywhere
Seems we’re always blowin’
Whatever we’ve got going
And it seems at times with all we’ve got
We haven’t got a prayer

Chorus:
Just Once
Can’t we figure out what we keep doin’ wrong?
Why the good times never last for long?
Where are we going wrong?

Just once
Can’t we find a way to fin’lly make it right?
To make the magic last more than just one night
I know we could break thru’ it
If we could just get to it
Just Once
Ooh.. We can get to it..
Just Once…
