I need that effin' awesome pamphlet from the 8UPPERS tour, GOSH!
Eito all look gorgeous and if you have watched the movie, you know what I mean.

Lately, I listen to their album a lot while driving (can't drive without music!).
It's not a "real" album and it's not an OST at the same time, it's a kind of mix and that's what I appreciate.

I love good OSTs, I believe that good music really serve a movie and even more, can magnify it.
But sometimes, when you listen to just the OST, it doesn't feel "right", something's missing: pictures.
I like OSTs that can live by themselves, I mean when you don't have to remember the scenes to appreciate the music.
For instance, I liked the OST of "Inception", I listened to it but didn't manage to really appreciate it.
On the contrary, that's not the case for the OST of "L'Auberge espagnole" (distributed as The Spanish Apartment" abroad).

So now you can understand why I like the 8UPPERS album, it's not only instrumental and it fits the movie quite well.
Nevertheless, "Wonderful World" sounds a bit out of place here, but whatever...

As for the solos, I like them all but of course my preference goes to Ryotan's one.
I don't really know why but I ALWAYS love the songs he composes, every one of the them, my favorite being "Code".

And in the movie, my favorite character was Arsenal I think.
I couldn't resist to Subaru's facial expressions and there's actually a reason for his cold attitude.
Maru was astoning for the fight scenes, my eyes were sparkling like crazy.
And  when I saw Ryo half naked, I immediately thought "wow, this is fan service!" XD

The movie is not exceptional and is a bit too short to my taste, the characters deserved better introductions for the story.
But as I already said, the music blends well, and the photography of the movie was good too.

All this to say that I need that pamphlet~

OK, I have new fandoms and some who are coming back XD

Let's begin with Epik High, their comeback but without Tukutz, trying the rock genre.
They've done well, Run and Jabeum are definitely awesome songs!

Then, Brian is back with a brand new single not on his 2nd album.
It's actually a Korean version of Jason Derulo's song but has the same title "In my Head".
The MV is a bit disappointing because it's just like one of his stage performance.

Following there is... F.Cuz!
I discovered them yesterday only with their new single No One.
Since I lived this one, I decided to watch their other MV and their stage performances.
The perfs of Jiggy are beyond awesome! XD
They change their clothes for each of them.

And who's back too? Arashi with Troublemaker.
The stop motion process was really a nice idea.
I got the same feeling than the 1st time I watched their Happiness PV, it's fun to watch.

Ahhhh, definitely too much love to give~

Today like everyday, I checked D-Addicts and I saw a JPop Suki thread so I was wondering if something had happened on that tracker since there have been huge changes on D-Addicts.
So now, I know you need to be invited to download via this tracker and miraculously, I had registered on their new tracker while it was opened so I have an account.
For those you'd like an invite, I'm sorry, I'm just a "user" and haven't seeded enough to send the 2 invites I have, maybe later ^__^

Today, I also discovered SeoulFM and I really like this radio station, they play everything I like and you can make requests via their Twitter!
So I tried and asked for Epik High's Fan and they played it for me.
It's funny because when it comes to K-Music, I really listen all kinds of genres and artists, which is not the case for J-Music.
I love some of Johnny's Ent. groups, Kanjani8 being the first in my personnal ranking, and very few others.
There's not this one monopole by one company in Korea though we can't denied that there's competition.

So, I could listen to the radio while doing some housework.
I plugged my wireless headphone base on my laptop and could go here and there in the house.
And I have to confess... I love SHINee's Ring Ding Dong ç___ç
I can't help it, I love everything about this song, rythm, the guys' voices...
Oh, SeoulFM is back live, I've just requested 잊지 말아요 (Don't Forget) by Baek Ji Young

And most importantly, drama spree is back, yeah baby!
I'm still watching Smile, you but I've also begun some old ones.
The first is a J-Drama called "Sekai no Chuushin de, Ai wo Sakebu" and god, I'd never thought I'd cry like that!
The story isn't really original, not at all actually but the way it's narrated and the whole atmosphere is deeply touching.
*(Ahhhhhh, 잊지 말아요 is playiiiiiiiiiing! Sorry for the spazz XD)*

The 2nd one is Korean, it's "Time Between Dog and Wolf".
Since I'm really liking Jung Kyung Ho right now, I decided to watch it.
I couldn't before before I had seen him in I'm Sorry I Love You and hated his character from all my heart (yeah, I know it's stupid).
When I watched the 1st episode, I immediately recognized Bangkok and spent half of the time remembering how great it was when I was there and the other half wondering when I'd see my Jung Kyung Ho eye candy XD
*(Wow, I'm totally discovering After School's talent thanx to SeoulFM!)*

On a more serious note, I'll now be working on Saturdays T.T
It's ok coz I'll be teaching English to a 12 year-old boy in my village ^^
*(Ohhhhh, Wedding Dress by Taeyang playing ♥♥♥)*

It's 3:20am, goin' to bed now!

My K-Pop addiction managed to make me forget a bit about my Johnny's addiction, I have to confess...
Now, groups like BIG BANG, 2NE1 or Epik High have a bigger place than Arashi, TOKIO, Kinki Kids and SMAP in my life.
But when I watch some Kanjani8 perfs of TV shows, I'm all excited and I've realized I'll never stop fangirlize over those guys, they're too precious to me =3

If I had to choose only one fandom on each side, I'd definitely keep Kanjani8 for the Japanese side and BIG BANG would be their Korean counterpart.
But I have to say that my love for Epik High is growing more and more every day and I can't wait for MYK's solo album!

And Tablo is a genius.
This is something he wrote on Twitter, a blonote as he calls them.

"A period that shed a tear becomes a comma; a comma that gathers its tear becomes a period."

I have my own interpretation of this sentence, maybe you have yours too and we can share ^^

I understand it this way:
When you can't turn the page after a painful experience, when you can't forget something, you just can't put a period at the end of your story because it's still hurting, for you it's not the end yet, you may cry a lot again and again and it seems endless... You definitely can't put a period and begin another story.
Then, when you feel better, when you're able to heal and maybe forget those painful times, you dry your tears and you can end the story peacefully, you don't need to remember the past anymore, you don't suffer anymore like before, you're able to move forward and to put a period at the end of that particular story to begin a new one.

Let's fangirlize a bit people~

I watched Kanjani8's MSta talk and performance and it was great.
The talk was totally LOL, and I was surprised to see I could understand most of it actually.
So this means my Japanese has slightly improved, yay for me \o/
And I got used to the hair, now I even find them pretty funny and cute this way.
Now, I still have to watch the Puzzle DVD bonuses since it has been translated ♥

Their new song and PV is original and I like it, I like when artist are able to renew their work...
That's why NEWS seems so boring to me lately, it's always the same again and again.
But I think their last concert is worth to be watched because they performed some songs they don't usually.
Yeah, I especially talking about "Why?" which is one of my favourite songs of them (on Weeek LE).
Shige's PV is total crack with epic cosplay and his voice got better, no?
"code" isn't an original PV but whatever, I just love that song.
I tried to listen to Tegoshi's version of "Ai Nante" but no... just NO!
It's like he got rid of all the emotion of the song, the trio version is so much better IMO!
I didn't even bother to watch Koyama and Yamapi's PVs (even though I like Koyama and "Love Addiction"), I just didn't want to.
And for those who know me well, you know I have Yamapi issues XD

G-Dragon has just released another MV and yeah, it's "Boy" meaning m y favourite song on his album.
I'm a bit disappointed with the MV, I thought it'd be more like "Heartbreaker" or "Breathe", anyway...
Oh we can even see him when he was 13 or something like that, I already saw him rapping when he was young in the BIG BANG documentary, it was the same images.

Now I'm waiting for Taeyang's next MV, "Wedding Dress" because the preview sounded awesome in "Where U at".
And after that, well long after that I thgink, it'll be Tabi's turn to release a solo digital single~
Talking about solos... Park Bom's one is cute, well the MV in particular.
I'm so in love with the scenes of the X'mas tree and of the sketchbook at the end.

2PM's new album is to be released soon and all the songs are already available to download.
I just don't like how JYP's using the Hottests' ideas, he totally stole the concept of 1:59PM.
Obviously he wants money money and is trying to manipulate all the fans (especially the pro-boycotters.
He says this and that but it's bullshit I think, this guy can't even keep a promise.

What's going in the K-Pop side of the force, damn!
DBSK, 2PM, BIG BANG, Super Junior... Who's the next now?

Thanks God, there's still SS501.
I don't really know that group but I love the new song "Love like this", it's so punchy!
I even created my own choregraphy and all, well it's mostly freestyle XD
And don't forget to download the new Epik High song if you're a fan, it's good I swear.

BIG BANG is in Japan right now, promoting "Koe wo Kikasete" (Ohitorisama theme song) and I just love to see TOP not being able to speak Japanese XD
This guy is unique, first because of his voice, then with his personnality, he's such a dork actually.
Just look at that 8D
His choice was... surprising and Taeyang's message was funny "Please, let's friends" XD
Daesung's Japanese has really improved I think even though he's not fluent.
Seung Ri's trying hard but too much, I can't really understand him when he speaks...

Talking about dramas in next entry ^__^

Et voilà un truc que je n'avais pas prévu de faire mais j'ai craqué quand j'ai regardé la chose en entier.
Comme j'avais déjà les autorisations de retraduction par Harunomasu@LJ...
En fait, c'est bien plus long que la fancam que j'avais vue !

Je n'ai sous-titré que les dialogues, parce que faire en plus le karaoké en background... merci grand-mère.
Et fait dire que j'avais pas envie de me prendre la tête aussi XD
 
Mon passage préféré ?
Aiba qui promène tous ses animaux XD

Hu hu hu, j'ai triché, j'ai repris mon fichier karaoké et trad de la perf d'un Shounen Club et pouf, autre effet kara et c'est emballé.
Alors j'hésite, je sais pas si mon solo préféré de Ryo est "code" ou "half down"...
Mais bon, y'a pas de PV de Half Down donc on fait avec ce qu'on a ^^

J'ai beau avoir plongé la tête en avant dans la K-Pop, j'ai pas oublié mon ichiban~
Et ça tombe bien, c'est son anniversaire et j'ai même pas fait exprès.

Pour ceux qui attendent du Arashi, y'a un ptit quelque chose en préparation.

Latest and new "coup de cœur"(*)...

KOBUKURO
Because I finally watched the entire MSSL 2008 and fell for the song あなたと, a duet with Ayaka.
Their voices are really really nice.

From what I understood, the song wasn't supposed to be a hit and was made for a CM.
But since there was so much demand by people, they made a PV and released the single.
 
(*) Loving something immediately.

I also listened to the L'Arc~en~Ciel's talk.
Hyde said that it was their debut in Europe and they came for the first time in Paris for a live, the atmosphere was great...
Ken added that he was really surprised by the Europeans fans who were shouting before the beginning of the show.
Well, that's true and for my part I already lost most of my voice before the concert...
Please, tell me if I got it wrong, I'm just a rookie in Japanese XD

But... but... but, I read on the internet that maybe... there'll be a DVD of the concert in Paris!
A whole DVD for Paris, this would be huuuuuge news and I'd definitely buy it.

SAUTEZ!

I know it's a bit late to write a report about the concert, but anyway, I won't do a proper report... XD

Enjoy~ )
