So yes, I only now discovered Rain's English version of Love Story. FAILLLLL~ I still love the Korean version more. I don't know, because for me, everytime a literary work is being translated to one language from another, there is something that will be removed from the context. Oh well, that's just me.


24th reason: Daiki is sometimes an epic fail.

Remember the Hyakushiki episode where he was hit by a basin? Or the jeans modeling part? Seriously for me, I don't like guys who holds the "too-good-or-to-be-perfect" image. If Sakurai Sho wasn't a Sho!fail he is, I think that I will not love him as much as I do right now. Same goes with Daiki. It's good for me to know that he's not that afraid of facing embarassment on-cam and not acting "cool" which is not like him. So yes, I like dorky guys with epic fail. After all, no guy is perfect - it takes enough courage and confidence for someone to show his/her epic failures especially when you're an idol.

Now, I would like to point out something. Most of you notice now that I don't flail as much in Hey! Say! JUMP; that now I only focus on Daiki and nothing more. I also think that most of you are like bewildered why I fangirl now for a Korean boy group and whatnot.

So here's the thing, I feel that me finding out about SHINee is very timely. Currently JE is pimping HS7 which I may honestly say the subgroup that I'm not very fond of. I'm still frustrated that the fact HSB didn't have their solo concert yet. DX I don't like to point fingers on Ryosuke, but looking in the circumstances, HS7 had their concert mainly because of him. Obviously, in a business, you will offer more the thing that makes you gain more profits, right? That's how I see on it. I'm really sad especially on Hikaru and Yabu because I think they deserve more of this concert as they were obviously devastated on what happened on Ya-Ya-Yah. As much as I like Hey! Say! JUMP, I still find their debut very untimely and I deduce that if it was HS7 (temp) that debuted, JE is more organized now. 

For the SHINee fangirling, this group was my "breather" on everything. SHINee somehow made me see on them the sense of balance. Everything that I long for HSJ to do, SHINee did it in one way or another. These 5 young Korean idols made me dawn to me that loving both K-Pop and J-Pop at the same time is possible and there's no need for binary opposition especially when it comes to JE and SM fans.

SM and JE balance each other out. The outpour of talent that somehow lacks in JE, that is what I found on SM. They had consdierably some of current best Korean singers and dancers. This is the result of the almost 9 grueling training hours daily of each SM trainee. To top it of, they also have this foreign language and compostion lessons which makes them fluent in other language such as Japanese, English or even Mandarin. Nevertheless, what they lack is the "human" factor. Because every SM trainee is looked to be as "perfect", I see that they can be seen that they're like robots or anything manufactured for that matter. That's what JE comes in. Realistically, JE may be far from us, but they provide us the entertainment that we are fond for. Another point is that what SM cannot do is raise ordinary people from zero to stardom and that's what JE is all about. Some of the big JE idols we have right now came in the Jimusho with no idea or whatsoever. Yamapi once said that he wants to learn to do "tumblings" that's why he joined JE. Inoo joined Jimusho because he wants tasty food. Ohno joined JE because his mother told him that she thinks he will not be able to do JE auditions. And that's what JE's charm for me - they can unleash the hidden potential of their Juniors in every way unimaginable. Lastly, SM owner, Lee So Man admitted that he got the idea of establishing SM through JE.

With all of these, I think both of these agencies can improve each other. SM can give JE the idea on how to train their idols better and JE can give SM how to avoid their idols from being "robotic" and add some human and fun factor on them. All in all, I love both agencies and I can now say to myself that liking J-Pop and K-Pop simultaneously is not bad at all. In fact, that's what music is all about - it's all about diversity, you have many artists and genres to choose from. It's up to you where you will put your heart in. And it's not a question of loyalty if you like more than one group, the reason you like more than 1 group is because the are similar or just complement from each other. And that's what make music interesting. That's why don't be afraid to experiment and look for other groups. :)

LONGGGGGG ENTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will post another entry later for one mysterious and hot birthday boy.

:D I am really amazed on how see little but important details on things that usually, ordinary people ignore and how you kinda analyze them and stuff. like this one and the HYD/BBF thingie.

Walang magawa kaya kung anu-anong naiisip eh. Just kidding. Frankly, I now reflect more often because that's how Ateneo's upbringing is. I remember my English professor said that what Ateneo sets apart to other great institutions is that it teaches their students to be more reflective on things. That is, before making a stand - Ateneans tend to step back and reflect on both sides. She said that's how the Ignatian upbringing works for majority of Ateneans. :))

I TRULY BELIEVE THAT. Come on, HSB is also an HSJ subgroup. D: D:

Awww. Sadista pa sila Inoo dun eh. Pinagtatawanan pa siya. Oh Daiki~

Sm takes care of Arashi's promotion in Korea right?

Really? I'm not sure. Maybe not. Because I've heard that Johnny's planning to make a JE in Korea. T_T COME ON JOHNNY, REMEMBER THE LAW OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND. Korea has now SM, YG and other agencies. Just leave it. X_X

haha. I dunno. I heard it somewhere. And when I went to the home page of SMent, I saw Arashi singles in their JPop page. But then again, I saw some others too. So maybe they're just helping promote. xD

Tsk Tsk Tsk. Johnny's planning to take over the world. xD

Really? Omg. There's a chance though. My friend said that when Arashi went to Korea, they went to eat with one SuJu member, I forgot who it was. FAILLL~

I agree, HSJ's debut was untimely. I MISS YA-YA-YAH ;__;

But oh well, Yamada can't help getting so much screentime, its not really up to him, just like how Yabu used to get pimped as a jr. Its easier to just blame Johnny orz

From: [identity profile] bea-chan22.livejournal.com
But for me, no matter how young you are, getting that overwhelmingly large screentime is unhealthy. I don't mind him being in the center from time-to-time, but like this? HELL NOOOO. Everything has to be done in moderation.

I miss it too.

Here's one thing I've observed: I'm very sad that whenever Yabu and Hikaru sees Shoon in Shokura, there's this awkward aura around them. D: D: D: I was like, "WHY TOMAPI IS NOT LIKE THAT!???" D: D:

ROFL XD i gotta agree with you on your opinion of Daiki and Sho xD *mainly because thats my reason of loving them as well xD*
anyway i just realised that most of friends on my f-list who like daiki, do like sho as well xD
Wow! there's suppose to be a hypothesis or smthin on how Daikia and Sho attract similar kind of girls

LOL. I can't really grasp the concept of ultra cool guys because frankly, no guy in real life can be like that. Well, there must be a little flaw on every individual, right? And as I've said above, it's hard to be a failure and be a laughingstock on cam. If I was on their position, I will be ultra embarassed. T_T

The part where he was hit by the basin. *A* He still smiled when he got hit. :">

OMG, HS7's getting all the attention. I WANT HSB! D:

Yeah. Poor penguin. :(

I NEED HSB too. -_-;;

Wow I liked ur entry about SM and JE. I don't know JE much, but what u said about SM is true. They do seem too perfect sometimes. Flawless. Good at everything! When you see someone with pimple, we get so shocked and excited as if they're just too godly to have bad skin or something!

That's what I feel too. And that what made me SHINee set apart from other SM groups. Though they have this killer looks and talent, they still have their fail side shown. Hello, Onew in Yunhanam. XDDD

I think Onew's sangtae might be just an act, thoughhhhh... *gets bricked*

Date: 2009-04-08 12:41 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] bea-chan22.livejournal.com
Well, we may never know. But at least, there's an epic fail on them. And I remembered watching a clip Bling saying once that Onew was the top 2 in the whole school. Maybe I'm wrong on this, but if it was the case, Dubu's must be smart after all. Seeing it, most smart guys that I know do not know how to use common sense *shot*
