Yamapi was my least favorite member in NEWS. I still like him, it's just that I love the other members (esp. Shige, Koyama & Massu) a lot more.

I won't ever, ever marry myself to Nino. I have the feeling that I might just strangle him when we live together.

Ohmiya is now one of my least favorite Arashi OTPs.

I don't like GD that much.

Super Junior-M is the only subgroup that keeps my attachment in Super Junior.

IDGAF on Sulli hate.

Hyoyeon and Song Hye Gyo still have similarities on their facial structures.

If I don't like a fandom it can mean a lot of things - the artist might not impress me at all (in terms of physical appearance, personality or talent), fandom is super crazy or a combination of both.

I don't buy usually buy merch unless it is worth it.

Yamachii fans drove me in leaving HSJ fandom.

I don't like Sho's scruffy look. Ever. 
wabisabea: (jonghyun peace~)
 Damn. Jonghyun is sick again. :( 

"5 members of SHINee were planning to perform the best stage for the debut in Japan, but JONGHYUN couldn’t participate in the LIVE Stage because of high fever. Thus SM staff decided to open the LIVE Stage with only 4 members. This decision is made for JONGHYUN’s health so we ask for your understanding regarding this matter.

Also relay of ‘SHINee JAPAN DEBUT PREMIUM RECEPTION in LONDON’ in FACEBOOK SMTOWN will be postponed due to the situation. However, our staff will upload some parts of the LIVE Stage (video) as soon as possible (photos will be uploaded continuously).

We hope everyone can cheer JONGHYUN up and wish him all the best for a speedy recovery.
Thank you for reading and all your understanding.

Jjong, please get well soon. Get well soon not because of us, but because you're doing so for yourself. You've been straining yourself too much and it's making me hella worried. Somehow, I don't know what's really wrong - my friend pointed out once that there are celebrities who have even more hectic schedules than K-Pop idols and yet they don't get sick. I am really baffled about this though, she said it might be because of their diet but what whatever it is, I hope they can change it soon before all idols drop like dead flies. 
wabisabea: (jonghyun shout)
wabisabea: (hearts <33333)

I'm sorry guys, I'm too late for this, but whatever. School's started a while ago, it was not much, except that I got locked outside of my house because my unnie forgot that she both locked our glass door and steel grills while she was showering. I'm also kicking myself because I should've met with Jinni unnie instead of going straight home. D:

Realizations from last year )
wabisabea: (hearts <33333)
Yes, I'm LSS-ed over U-Kiss' Man Man Ha Ni. Key and Dongho's dancing to it is playing over and over in my head. XDDD

It's ironic, the 2nd pic has its tag as "SpringKey" and yet, Minho was the one on it. XDDD
wabisabea: (hearts <33333)
So okay, I just got back from the Philippine-Korean Friendship concert and it was really worth it. I enjoyed most of the perfs and even we waited for like Shisus knows when, I don't regret going there and I thank Diana and her sisters for giving me this chance to see them live.

In love all over again )
wabisabea: (describe sho)

Both of my favorite groups are doing well on their musical endeavors and now that Arashi's debut CD is a decade old, I realized that all of my frustrations and disappointments comes from the fans in itself. Admittedly, I'm a semi-elitist fan myself, and sometimes I shun new fans because some tick me off on the wrong places. But then, it came to my senses that shunning them wouldn't be solving anything. I've seen immature fans for every fandom and it makes me think that sometimes, the fandom in itself is somehow at fault of creating this kind of fans. Personally, I believe that having a decent fanclub is a collective responsibility of both old and new fans - old fans should sometimes give a 'gentle' intervention to these fans by pointing out some of their mistakes, because if we just shun and just vent it out, it doesn't help the person to grow better as a fan adn thus, creates a never-ending cycle of mistakes can create undesirable effects on the long run. As for the new fans, try to become more sensitive with the actions. Not everything will be spoon-fed to you by the other fans. Sure, some will help you, but it will also be advantageous if you try to find things out by yourself. 

Another thing I've seen is that time is not the greatest factor to determine a fan's maturity and loyalty. Sure, it makes sense to us that experience is the best teacher and such, but I've seen old fans not growing to mature and loyal fans and vice versa. It's saddening that some old fans are avoiding new fans because they think they're all immature and not deserving and all that. Yes, some are like that, but just think: all of us came to a newbie phase in all of our fandoms, and if the older fans had this kind of thinking and avoided us from the beginning, are we going to be on the same position that we have now? :)

My goodness, I really can't write a short post. D:

Yah, I'm just keeping it as simple as possible.

[livejournal.com profile] hanazawahyuuga  and Vren [livejournal.com profile] vrenille23 . Can't believe that you two share Key's bday. *hugs*

Whew. It's long and I haven't eaten dinner yet. DX So long everyone!
wabisabea: (legoooo~)

Yes, the mega popular JE group is now officially a senpai. Uwee! *confetti* To add more to it, CDTV ranked them as the #1 artist that Japanese people would want to see live. THSK gained the 2nd place. What's sad to it is that some Cassies are bashing them and questioning why they are on the top while THSK is so much better.

Re(mark)able Answer )
wabisabea: (Default)

Yes, I'm a bitch. Well good bitch, that is. XDD

I haven't done IQ tests for a long time but I did this now:


Your IQ Score is: 129

Inventive Inquisitor

You have the unusual talent of being equally good at both mathematical and verbal skills. That, paired with your thirst to learn through experience, makes you an Inventive Inquisitor.

Your strength lies in the methodology you have naturally adopted to understand the world. Basically, you have perfected "learning through living." You have a unique ability to teach others by taking them through actual experiences. Your talents come in handy especially when confronted with unfamiliar or unproven situations. Most people search their brains for previously stored information that might help in a given situation. You, however, take things as they come and see things as they are. You are a great improviser and are probably open to an unusual amount of change. Another Inventive Inquisitor who demonstrates this very point was Ben Franklin. He suspected that lightning was a naturally occurring electrical current and realized he was correct once he conducted his famous kite-flying experiment on a stormy night. This is the type of novel approach that keeps your perspective fresh. Chances are, it has also helped you develop an unusually worldly sense of things. You use your inherent wisdom to branch out from what others too quickly assume to be the most "rational" solutions. This talent enables you to approach things creatively instead of following the rigid paths of life.

You're saying that you're smart in my face? Oh hell no bitch. XDDD Take note, I still consider this IQ test to be a bit inaccurate, but given this data, I'm 11 pts away from Yunho [LMAO, isn't he 140+] but oh well, it's impossible for me to have Tablo's IQ of 180 [if I'm not mistaken].

Anyhow, happy birthday to Arashi's youngest, Matsumoto Jun! I'm gonna give his message later. XDD

wabisabea: (Default)
I PROMISE THAT THIS WILL BE A SHINee FREE POST EXCEPT FOR MY CURRENT MUSIC! Anyway, so a penguin is set to have a bday tomorrow. And yes people, that's Arioka Daiki. I've put it up in advance because I have classes starting tomorrow. Bummer. D:

Anyway, this is the 1st picture that I saw Daiki and heck, I didn't consider him cute back then. *shot* And I still remember saying that he might be gay because one of the Arashi fics I've been reading, there is a gay character named Daiki... so yeah. Nevertheless, everything changed and here are my reasons for liking him:

wabisabea: (ohno)
Belated happy Easter to everyone! I wasn't able to post yesterday because I got very tired as my relatives went here. :) :)


Yes, I listen to fancovers and some users caught my attention whether in a good or bad way, but that's beyond the point. This girl sings Arashi songs and combines it with piano and other instruments. I swear, she's really good and this is a fancover should be, in my own and honest opinion. XDDD So if you want to be like her, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. I just want to have a voice like that; I'm so envious... T_T What's more, she's very down-to-earth, I've known some users who are good but heck they've somewhat got their fame on their heads, which is bad. X_X

Oh and classes will almost start and I still don't have my ID. Furthermore, I STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO ON DAIKI'S BDAY! FAILLLL~! I'm so stupid, babo, baka or any translation of stupid or fool. Anyway, I will just post 2 Daiki reasons later here. :) :)

wabisabea: (maknae)

How can someone smile like there's no tomorrow while being dragged by a giant guy? I just can't understand Onew. Oh well, he has his Almighty Onew Sangtae and that's something that I don't possess.

Oh and is someone on my f-list experienced playing Dream Day Wedding? I'm currently playing the Honeymoon edition, and last night, here's the list:

Just look at the encircled word. XDDDD

Oh and [livejournal.com profile] matjnatk uploaded an Arashi chibi video and I was laughing at how much Jun changed in less than a decade. During their debut, he said he want to be Comedy Leader which of course never happened because he's now a Do S. And looking at it, their faces didn't change much but it's evident that they're not that "glued" together when they just debuted. Which for some twist of fate,eventually,  they became very close. XDDD And I somewhat saved an Arashi secret on [livejournal.com profile] je_secrets .

Yes, and that's exactly what is Arashi's charm for me. They can inspire people to go on with their lives and do better. If it wasn't for them, I will not have a more positive outlook on life and Sho's the one keeping me to go on with my studies. Uh-oh, here comes my bias again. :))


28th reason: Daiki is being bullied by Yamada.

Ah~ Yamadai. They're one of my closet OTP's. Just don't let Yamada be alone or else, I will have this, "Yamada dislike mode" again. Anywa
y, being bullied is not good, I know but the fact he's okay being chummy with someone younger and all, I find it very funny. That's go to show that he can really relate good with other people regardless of what their age is.

Did I make sense? Oh well, I gotta go! XDDD

wabisabea: (key)
It's Good Friday in here and suddenly while the sun is shining brightly, it rained - hard. Weather's so weird nowadays. -_-;;

Oh and I was bullied by [profile] massacred_doll to do two memes. *runs* But before that, I shall take revenge on her by posting the pictures here that [livejournal.com profile] vanillafrog posted in her previous comment.


He's hot when his hair's disheveled and not the mushroom style. Btw, Lee Taemin, are you learning these tricks from this hyung?


[livejournal.com profile] dontcallmeagain 

and.. maybe to your umma?


credits: it's on the picture and to SFI users! :)

Waah, I'm stalling! Anyway, I shall go now to the 2 memes. :)

1st meme!


Rule:I'll give you a person and you have to answer the 5 questions about him truthfully. So Alex gave me Kim Kibum aka Key. Aish~ I shouldn't be surprised she gave me Key.

1. Do you like this person?
Uhh... m-maybe? Nah, I'm just kidding. Of course, I do! He's my favorite SHINee member. Though sometimes Bling Bling gets me out of nowhere.

2. How do you call this person?
I call him his most common nickname: Key. I also call him Umma, Kibum oppa or just Kibum. XDDD

3. Which color do you associate with this person?
I always associate him with pink. It's very unusual for a guy to be related to pink because this color represents feminity. But on SHINee, when you see a guy wearing pink, chances are, that's him. Besides, he's a bit feminine; blame it to his umma personality.

5. Looking at his/her character, what blood type do you think he/she have? (EH? WHERE'S #4?)
Key's blood type is B (B is for Bea... *runs*) and I looked it up on Issendai.com and it is said that people with blood type B are practical and when they do something, they are very focused on it. They also tend to be less cooperative because they set their own rules and stick to them. They can tend to be more on the rational side because they dwell on thoughts rather than feelings.

Looking at itm some of it are correct to Key. First is being practical. Well he'll not be called Umma if he's not very practical, isn't it? Second, I guess Key's very focused too because he somewhat achieved his life-long dream which is to become a singer.

6. What do you want to tell that person?
HARDEST PARTTTT~! Aigoo~ I don't know... Maybe stop nagging too much? I know that you care a lot for the members and I can totally relate to his role as an Umma, but give them a break. Nevertheless, I'm still liking you as their Umma because I know that role is not easy and taking up that role shows your maturity as an individual because you're willing to take responsibilities for others. :) 

Aish~ I've messed up~! T_T

7. What do you want to do with this person: hug, kiss or shake hands?
I WANT ALLLL~! LOL. Kiss is out of the question, shaking hands is too formal for me, maybe a hug is nice. XDDD

8. Pick five of your friends and pick one person for them.

[livejournal.com profile] natsumikoga  - Yabu (it's not that I don't want Key, but I miss Yabu!)
[livejournal.com profile] ynlover - Yuto
[profile] pinky_fairy10 - Yamada
[livejournal.com profile] speranza28 - Takeru
[livejournal.com profile] vanillafrog - Jonghyun /Jae Joong

2nd meme:

01. One word to describe me:
02. Your first impression of me:
03. Nicknames you would give me and call me:
04. Something you always wanted to tell me/ask me:
05. Would you repost this on your journal so I can fill it out for you?

Daiki reason and maybe a rant? )


wabisabea: (Default)
I'm in a current rush now.. T_T Maknae, I'm so sorry for today. :((

Doesn't Taemin resemble Shige a lot? My goodness. X_X He can be hot without his mushroom hair. :) I'm sure someone there is drooling for hot Taemin. *runs*

Okay, rush time, Daiki reason!


26th reason: Daiki likes Katori Shingo

Oh yeah. Before it was Ohno, but Daiki's most respected senpai is from SMAP. And I really appreciate that he likes his daisenpais. I wish I can see them sing together. XDDD

And yes, I shall go now. I will rant tomorrow. A LONG RANNNNT~!

wabisabea: (bling)
To whom I was referring to? Nobody. I'm still captivated when Bling sang that line. I've tried singing that, but considering my abysmal singing skills, of course, I failed. My sister tried singing it too, and she said his pitch is high for a guy.

Oh and I watched Arashi's Beautiful Days PV and SNSD's Gee PV on Channel V this afternoon. I first saw Matsujun's face on our TV and I was like, "WTH" and of course I stayed to watch it. When it finished, I was ready to change the channel when a familiar PV came out, and yes, it's Gee. I still watched it because I don't get tired of the song. It's subbed in Mandarin and at the end, when Minho came out, it was like acknowledging that he was from SHINee. Those 2 PV's completed my hot Wednesday afternoon. :)

Oh and to Mrs. Lee aka,[profile] massacred_doll, here are you 2 Lee husbands. *runs*


I'm browsing on my f-list a while ago and there's this bday banner on [livejournal.com profile] aigoo_sushi on Kim Jonghyun.

Note: The rose being held by Bling - that's mine. *shot* Anyway, look at Minho's shirt. WHY OH WHY THERE'S A PENGUIN THERE??? DAIKIIIIII~!!!!

Speaking of penguin, here's Daiki reason

25th reason: He resembles Massu a lot.

So yeah, pretty self-explanatory. It's like Daiki is Massu's younger reincarnation or something. But for me, when Daiki gets older, he has higher chances of going out the "cute" image compared to Massu. No, I'm not bashing Massu, I love him. :) :) Isn't this a conceited reason? XDDD

Oh and a meme, please answer!

36) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?

Ranting ahead )



wabisabea: (bling)

Bling Bling

So yes, K-Poppppppppppppp~! I so wish that SHINee will debut on Japan someday. It's not for HSJ to have competition; I'm just curious if they can go well together with Japanese better than DBSK. Honestly, DBSK is doing well in Japan, but for me, they're still isolated. It's like they don't interact much on the other artists that don't belong in SM Japan, which makes me sad. I don't know, I might be wrong on this. DX


When the clock strikes 11 pm here, it will be Kim Jonghyun's bday on Korea. He's now 19 (20 in Korea). Gosh, he's so old. *whacks* And yes, the playlist here is the way on how I can show to you how great his God-given voice is. *dies*

*gets ressurrected by a SHINee picture* Let's go back. Yes, I now present to you, the birthday boy.

How do you say happy birthday in Korean? FAIL. )
Before I really end this, my final message:
생일 축하합니다, 김종형

PS: Oh and kudos to everyone who uploaded the pictures, music and videos I used here. Thank you very much! SFI people rocks. :)
wabisabea: (Default)
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.

COMMENTS!!! = <333333!

Mushy Much?

Apr. 6th, 2009 08:36 pm
wabisabea: (Default)
"We fight a hundred times, and our hearts breaks a hundred times
But like tangled pieces of string, our love can’t be pulled apart
We fix our faults, learn each other’s hearts
I know that one day, only our happiness will be left"

--Love's Way by SHINee

So this is what happens when I listen to too many mushy songs. I've tried to sing Arashi's Aozora Pedal (and failed miserably), listened to Tegomass' Kiss Kaerimichi no Love Song and lastly on SHINee's Love's Way. Obviously on the title of SHINee's song, I know well that it's a love song. Nevertheless, while reading the translation and listening to the song simultaneously, I somewhat cried. Maybe because of the sad meaning behind the song or Bling's voice on one line. Or maybe both. :))

It's Ryutaro's bday today! *confetti* I may not have the super liking for this kid and his subgroup, but hey, we both share the same liking: hamsters. And he's very young, I feel old suddenly. X_X

Image Heavy cut )Image Heavy cut )Image Heavy cut )Image Heavy cut )

wabisabea: (ondubu)
Yeah, that's the Korean title for Replay of SHINee. Here's a video of SHINee trio (Onew, Minho and Taemin). In the end they sang the chorus of Replay. Well, it's not perfect though. Oh and watch Minho at around 3:02-3:06. He's hot, mind you, he's really the Flaming Charisma of SHINee.

My net went really ballistic/crazy/insane/mad yesterday so no Daiki reason. Sheesh. Here we go again. 2 reasons!

21st reason: Daiki knows how to relate with different types of people.

How should I put this? Ah, he said once that during school events, he joins the committee that takes surveys or makes newspapers. I find this nice because relating with diff types of people is hard
, all of us can experience this but I think, only few are good in relating people. I guess being in the media business gives you this ability or talent. :))

Before I forget,

Happy birthday to [profile] pinky_fairy10 . Yamada will take care of you very well this day. Oh and I'm thankful iver Yamada because without him, I wouldn't love SHINee. Yeah, for twisted reasons, I suppose.

Gotta go nowwwww~!
