130408 We Got Married (Global) – Ep 1

First of all. BLESS YOU MBC. MWAH MWAH MWAH MWAH♥

Thank you for:
1) uploading this episode onto your official youtube account, and
2) providing English subtitles.

Way to go!!!


Ok Taecyeon (2PM) x Gui Gui

THIS COUPLE IS WAY TOO CUTE… (Also, Gui Gui has way too many names LOL. Emma Wu?) I loved how natural they were with each other and how they were just always silly, fun, smiley, and energetic.

Listening to Taecyeon speak English was unexpectedly attractive, and Gui Gui’s Engrish is actually not too bad and it’s cute. There’s more of a language barrier here but it doesn’t seem like they’re having trouble with that seeing as how they’re both so expressive. They’re so hilarious ;u; I’m going to enjoy watching this couple a lot.


Lee Hongki (FT Island) x Fujii Mina

This couple was a lot more calm, shy, and awkward. Hopefully they’ll have lots of chemistry once they warm up to each other! I was really impressed by Fujii Mina’s Korean; she seems so surprisingly fluent. It doesn’t seem like they’ll have much trouble communicating. :’D ..It’s just that I don’t know if these two have much to communicate to each other.

Gag Concert – Ep 657

http://ktvstream.blogspot.com/2012/08/gc657.html

Guest Cameo:
2PM’s Jang Wooyoung

Another all-around good episode!

Discoveries in Life with Wooyoung could’ve been a lot better though. Most skits that I’ve seen of this segment have been better than this one. (For starters, Wooyoung seemed ttly uncomfortable and was not convincing as Bora’s “boyfriend.”)

I’ve been having some strange inexplicable fascination with Jeong Taeho and Kim Daeseong, the daughter and “mommy” from Madam Jeong. They’re in dresses and wigs, but aren’t exactly feminine and their voices and faces are obviously male, YET THEY’RE SO PERFECT FOR THE ROLES. It’s like they’re not really trying, but it WORKS. I don’t know! When I found out that Jeong Taeho was both Madam Jeong and the long-haired rapper dude from Brave Guys who is the manliest of the group, I was /so/ mind-blown. Completely opposite sides of the spectrum. Additionally, Taeho’s wig falls off during Brave Guys in this episode which kind of breaks the character, so you’re like, “Oh.. so it is him…”

And then it doesn’t help my fascination that Kim Daeseong and Park Seonggwang are the kid duo in Best Friends (I LOVE this segment and find it genius) but they’re… so… different from the characters that they usually play. The fact that the “DON’T DO IT DON’T DO IT I’M SO EMBARRASSED” babo kid Park Seonggwang is the same rapper in Brave Guys with an afro just doesn’t register for me, not to mention he raps with Kim Daeseong’s Madam Jeong “mommy.” .-. Plus, I have a hard time recognizing him without his afro.

I love Four Men, but it’s getting ridiculously long… This episode’s was, I think, about 11 minutes? o_o Don’t segments usually average around 4-5 minutes long? Yet just Kim Junhyeon’s part alone took up about 4-5 minuters.

Running Man – Ep 104

http://www.isubs-squad.com/download/episode?e=214 (registration required)
http://www.kshownow.net/2012/07/running-man-episode-104-english-subs.html

Guests:
C.N. Blue – Yonghwa (UGH. NO STOP. YOU’RE TOO PERFECT. IT HURTS.)
Super Junior – Eunhyuk (this boy is amazingly nimble)
MBLAQ – Lee Joon (he’s so hilarious LOL although smh at the volleyball part, aiyah)
BEAST – Doojoon (defs lives up to his name of former soccer player)
2PM – Nichkhun (AHHH HE WAS SO GREAT DURING HIDE AND SEEK)
ZE:A – Siwan (he’s adorable. those dives though wtf.)
T-ara – Eunjung (seeing as how she was Jihyo’s counterpart, there were some expectations but I feel let down..)

Basically, Running Man Team and Idol Team compete against each other in faux-Olympics.
Honestly, I thought there was no way the Running Man team could fare well against the fresh-blooded, athletic, young idols. BUT OH BOY did we underestimate the Running Man cast… It’s an intense episode in the sense that the two teams are constantly at each other’s necks and the result is unpredictable.

I looove how chatty, comfortable, and active the idol team was! I felt like for a team that was thrown together for the first time (unlike RM who have been together for 2 years), they have pretty good coordination and teamwork.

Highlights:

  • the French introductions
  • Gwangsoo’s entrance with piano
  • Jongkook’s face during the relay
  • Joon and Siwan on the trampoline (OMGGGGGG)
  • Gwangsoo in the hurdle game
  • SIWAN BEING A FUCKING GRACEFUL-ASS SWAN OF PERFECTION with his dives
  • Siwan’s “death”
  • Joon in the box
  • Joon’s face of true fear
  • “Let me borrow 200 million won”

The Romantic & Idol – Ep 8

http://www.kshownow.net/2013/01/the-romantic-idol-episode-8-english-subs.html

And so ends a lovely season 1 of the show that grabbed me by the heart and strapped me down for a roller coaster ride for 8 weeks. Thank you for being entertainment worth gold that kept me anticipating each week’s episode. ;v;

BUT LUCKILY, season 2 has kicked off immediately with the end of season 1, so the ride continues! Admittedly, I’m not nearly as interested in the new participants (not to mention it feels a lot more dry now that we’ve ran through all these procedures once already) but I hope I end up liking it as much as the first season.

This is definitely not the most interesting episode, because nothing develops. Almost everything has been set somewhat in stone and at this point, all of the couples and everything are predictable EXCEPT FOR THE FATE OF TWO CERTAIN PEOPLE: Seungah and JB. Is there a twist? Is there a change of heart? Is it a tragedy?

But this doesn’t mean that it’s not still an enjoyable and sweet episode. They’re now at the end of the 4-day trip to Jeju Island and must make their “final choice.” Feelings are confirmed, couples are formed, and they get to be super lovey-dovey and adorable with each other. Picturesque pairs in a picturesque setting. ^^

I really fell in love with every member of The Romantic & Idol season 1. Even Mir, who I first thought to be a thoughtless douche, turned out to be a sweet and sincere person. The entire cast got along so well and was comprised of such genuinely good-hearted, adorable, pretty-inside-and-out people.<3 I’ll miss them~

The episode ends with the introduction of the season 2 participants. I REALLY WANT TO BELIEVE THAT SOME OF THE SEASON 1 COUPLES ARE ACTUALLY GOING OUT, or at least still keep in contact. I mean, look at what Kevin says about Hyungshik LOL. Also I have a feeling maybe Mir too, since those two were adamant about keeping connected when they get back to Seoul. =u=

The Romantic & Idol – Ep 7

http://www.kshownow.net/2012/12/the-romantic-idol-episode-7-english-subs.html

DID YOU HEAR THAT? That was the sound of my heart breaking for Seungah, who’s shown that she’s the most understanding, selfless, mature, strong girl with many appeals but no guys around fitting to see this. But you really can’t expect everything to work out or magically click together perfectly, so I guess this was inevitable. I just feel terrible for her despite how strong she acts.

I must say that I love how they talk to each other about staying in contact after getting back to Seoul, or gossiping about who might date for real after the show–it just makes it all seem so real. Like we’ve been watching real friendships, bonds, and budding romances form right in front of our eyes that actually mean something to these people, rather than just something fabricated for a show. The entire cast seems to have gotten pretty tightknit through these 4 days spent together, so I hope they stay in touch afterwards. (Jihyun and Hyungshik can go get married, justsaying–)

~

Also, special bonus:

Hyungshik’s Christmas present ///A/// HE’S SO ADORABLE AND PERFECT. This is incredibly sweet, just like his voice. That vibrato and those runs <3

The Romantic & Idol – Ep 6

http://www.kshownow.net/2012/12/the-romantic-idol-episode-6-english-subs.html

HYUNGSHIK STOP KILLING OUR HEARTS WITH YOUR ADORABLE SWEETNESS, JEEZ.

This episode is mostly about the second song shuffle where the girls choose a song, and the guys come out if they like it, then they go on a moonlit date.

Okay let’s just address each individual separately:

Jihyun – GO GET (I’m really glad she committed herself to him the entire time despite being the most popular)
Hyungshik – MARRIED ALREADY (ugh he’s cute and they’re perf together)
Seungah – :c I loveeee this girl and feel so sorry towards her.. I don’t see why nobody seems to see how amazing she is. And to deal with this, she’s been really strong and selfless too. I find her absolutely admirable<3
JB – I like him, I was somehow more impressed by his singing here than in DH2 and JJ Project, but he’s done a lot of inconsiderate things. ._. But at least he has the decency to feel guilty.
Jei – She’s adorbs and I don’t see her as shifty as others do, tbh. I just don’t understand why she seemed upset at that last part?
Mir – I didn’t expect to be rooting for him with Jei, but now I am~
Hyejeong – I LOVE HER; she’s so down to earth and pretty inside & out.
Jun.K – I’m glad they put him on this show because he truly IS the romantic idol.

The Romantic & Idol – Ep 4

http://www.kshownow.net/2012/12/the-romantic-idol-episode-4-english-subs.html

I forgot to blog this right after I watched it so now I don’t remember clearly what happened in the episode. OTL

This episode comes with good and bad news. On the bright side, ONE OTP IS SOLIDIFIED. It’s fate and they’re adorable with each other. ;u;<3
Unfortunately, the rest of the cast is in jumbles tbh LOL. It’s hard to reveal much without accidentally spoiling.

The Romantic & Idol – Ep 3

http://www.kshownow.net/2012/11/the-romantic-idol-episode-3-english-subs.html

OH SHIT. LOL. Everything’s getting all jumbled up now, pairs are being switched around, and hearts are changing!! Some ships are sinking and some are still tugging along, but at this point, for the most part you kind of can’t predict what’ll happen. ;^;

I can’t really talk about the episode without spoiling anything lol.

They go to the BEAUTIFUL (omg that ocean when the boys run in) Jeju Island and have another random pair-off where the girls choose necklaces prepared by the guys, and they go on dates.

This show is getting very interesting, complicated, and dramatic LOL. WHAT TO DOOOOOO.

(PS: Hyungshik is so awkward but he’s so endearing.)

The Romantic & Idol – Episode 2

http://www.kshownow.net/2012/11/the-romantic-idol-episode-2-english-subs.html

NOW I REALLY WANT EPISODE 3. This show is strangely addicting.

Still nothing set in stone. We find out who chose Stay and who chose Change, then they do this song shuffle thing to give them an opportunity to go on a date. Didn’t like the format though ;w; It’s kind of unfair.

Again, I don’t want to spoil anything.. but might I please just point out
how adorable everyone is
JB’s cuteness especially, my god, stahpppp

The Romantic & Idol – Episode 1

http://www.kshownow.net/2012/11/the-romantic-idol-episode-1-english-subs.html

OKAY. So I randomly started watching this show even though I’d never heard of it before because I was curious. NO EXPECTATION AT ALL to like to show or get attached, addicted, etc…………. ಠ___ಠ Now I’m REALLY yearning for the next episode.

Shit. I actually really like most of them. There are a couple though that I’m kinda mehhh about because of their attitudes or behavior.

Basically the concept of the show is that 8 idol group members (4 female, 4 male) are thrown on Jeju Island together–no managers or stylists allowed. While I guess there are missions, for the most part, they act on their accord. They are themselves (not an idol facade or a character) and they must take care of themselves. In this sense, it’s like a reality show.

This is the first episode though so they started with initial meetings. Each of them had to choose a location representing a stereotypical romantic scenario, and meet there with the person of the opposite gender who also chose this location, and it’s a date.

I don’t want to spoil anything, but some of them are really cute together LOL. TWO OF THE COUPLES HAVE A LOT OF CHEMISTRY. ;v; But we’ll see what happens as the show goes on! Some things may change.. or some things may endure and bloom.

(Honestly, I worry a bit for the idols because it does feel like they came with their REAL feelings. And I don’t know if anyone’s gonna be hurt, or if their agency and fans will be okay with everything.)

Anyway, these are the participants of the show:

Jihyun (4minute)
Seungah (Rainbow)*
Jei (Fiestar)**
Hyejeong (AOA)
Jun.K/Junsu (2PM)
Mir (MBLAQ)
JB (JJ Project)
Hyungshik (ZE:A)

*I don’t know why I haven’t heard much about SeungAh before when she’s so fantastic. She’s friendly, talkative, honest, and I’m very glad to see her on this show.
**WOAH. SHE JUST DEBUTED THOUGH SO THIS IS REALLY SURPRISING but I’m also really happy for her ;v; I’ve been really liking her and Fiestar.

Dream High

http://www.dramafever.com/drama/3900/1/Dream_High/?ap=1

I finally finished watching Dream High after.. much too long. I was actually watching the series as it was airing, and keeping up with all the news, and suddenly I got kind of busy and fell behind, and when I finished episode 14 [there’s 16 in total], I stopped watching entirely because I don’t like finishing dramas. ;_; I don’t want it to end.

But since Dream High 2 is airing soon, I figured I should at least finish the first series D: in case there are any spoilers.

Um.

Okay.

I cried. >_> During Hyemi’s concert.. when she made that speech and when she dedicated her first song to Samdong. ;_________; I was so surprised and touched when I found out what the song was. That was definitely the perfect choice. And she sounded so beautiful. And then the kiss sceneee ;___; I’m really glad there was one. If there was no kiss, I would’ve been really unsatisfied with this ending, because the ending is already not very solid/entirely concluded.

All in all, I really loved this drama. The cast is perfect and I love the concepts and lessons. It really shows the importance of striving towards your dreams and following your heart.

P.S. the part with Hyesung was cute HAHA. I thought the directors were pretty creative with the ending.

111229 SBS Gayo Daejun 2011

K.Will & Tiffany (SNSD) – A Whole New World

OH. MY. GOD. <3333 This song!!
And yayy for another K.Will and Tiffany collab! K.Will has such a handsome, strong voice and he pulls anything off well. And although Tiffany has some weaker moments, I’m impressed with her ;_; <3 I love her vibrato. She’s gorgeous too~

Ga In (BEG), Sunhwa (Secret), Hyorin (SISTAR), G.NA, Jiyeon (T-ara), Fei (Miss A), HyunA (4minute) – Run the World

Oh my goshh *___* they are all so fierce.
I’m kind of unimpressed by Hyuna though ;w; she really doesn’t need to dance like that to be sexy. Ga In, Jiyeon, G.NA, and Fei were able to be sexy but still classy. I was especially wowed by Jiyeon O A O I didn’t know she had it in her. And she’s able to be sexy, but strong and yet innocent.

IU & Yoseob (BEAST) – What I Want to Do Once I Have a Lover

SOOO CUTE. Yoseob must be so happy! HAHA. They’re both naturally adorable and are both great singers.

FT Island & f(x) – Don’t Cha

“Radies let’s go!”

SNSD & Super Junior – Technologic; We Can Make the World Stop; Moves Like Jagger

They’re all so fierce <3
But this video was definitely made by awkward SeoKyu couple at the end LMAO LMAO I LOVE THEM ♥♥♥♥

2NE1 – Ugly + I Am The Best

Admittedly, I kinda don’t like that CL just shouts everything during lives, but I was pretty impressed with her singing the chorus during Ugly [: it was powerful but on pitch and full of passion. Although she skipped the “pretty”s =w= haha. They’re such good performers.

Super Junior – Mr. Simple

KYEEE thank you SBS for that awesome opening VCR segment!

C.N. Blue & Wonder Girls – Tainted Love

Somewhat an awkward collab but they’re all good. xD I’m surprised Yoobin sang. Yonghwa looked kind of afraid of them LOLLL. I think Wonder Girls pulls off rock pretty well though.

Kim Hyunjoong & After School

This is really cool, with the flashlights and choreography. *w* So many people must be envious of Hyunjoong right now lolol, almost got to kiss both Kahi and Nana.

Hip Hop Stage Part 1

Gary (Leessang), Dynamic Duo +
Taecyeon (2PM), Junhyung (BEAST), Hoya (Infinite), Mir (MBLAQ)

WOW I LOVE THIS. The hip hop stage is my second favorite of all of the gayo daejun performances this year, I think. [: There is so much passion and energy here.
First of all, I’m really happy for all the idol rappers that they got to do a stage like this. ^^
GARYY <3333 I’m used to Running Man and it’s sooo weird seeing a fierce Gary haha! LOOK AT SEOHYUN at 1:48 though lmao she’s just awkwardly clapping even though it’s a hip hop stage, and then she follows Hyoyeon and G.NA with their gestures, and she’s soo awkawrd… hahaha.


[alternative LQ but SBS official link if embedded is deleted] 

Hip Hop Stage Part 2

This part though is the shit.
Yoon Mirae aka Tasha comes out and SLAYS ALL OF THEM. GIIIIRL, I HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT FOR YOU. Holy fudge. Yoon Mirae = all of the rest of their swag added up.
I loved her after Running Man’s hip hop special because she was really sincere and she and her husband were really cute, but I had no idea she was this badass. <3

SMTOWN – The Sound of Hanlyu

Holy fuck. This is what my life is about. Fuck. Can I just marry all of SMTown? SMTOWN ORCHESTRA IS LIKE THE BEST THING OUT OF ALL POSSIBLE BEST THINGS THAT EXIST. O A O

These 9 minutes of your life are worth it. First you’ll be impressed.. then you’ll be impressed even more.. and then even more blown away and even more and more!!! It never ends O A O They are all amazing as fuck and they just keep throwing more and more spazz-worthy awesomeness at you.
SMTown is really, truly talented… ;_____; Not only are they the best on variety and have great personalities and hearts and are all really superior-looking people, but.. talent in instruments, singing, rapping, dancing.. All that charisma and stage presence and beauty and wonder and. Wow. I’m really happy.

HENRY VIOLINNN <3 Siwon drums!! Seohyun and Ryeowook keyboard!! Sunday and Jungmo guitar!! VICTORIA’S SOLO DANCE. All of the fierce dancing! TIFFANY’S BEAUTIFUL FLUTE.
And… The Devil’s Cry…………. Taeyeon and Changmin. how. how did they do that.

Anyway, wow, watch this! They are all really talented ♥
Gayo daejuns were really boring this year, but this performance was definitely the bestttt<3 Made the gayo daejuns worth it.

111231 MBC Gayo Daejun 2011

I’m late on catching up on the 2011 gayo daejuns but I’m finally doing it LOL

SNSD – Diamond

I’m so proud of these girls ;w; they’re so strong vocally and finally some of them, like Sooyoung especially, get to show that. YES, YOU ARE SHINING AND GLEAMING!!


After School & Infinite vs. T-ara & MBLAQ

As a big fan of Joon/Jiyeon and Seungho/Soyeon and just MBLAQ/T-ara in general as pairings, I was very happy to find out they collabed. =w= Although I was kinda disappointed in their stage ’cause it wasn’t very exciting and my OTPs weren’t there, and obviously when it comes to dance, of course they lose to After School and Infinite, which are both DAMN POWERFUL. I was impressed. Kahi especialy rocked it but I kinda wish the cameraman didn’t focus on her so much.


Adam Couple (2AM’s Jo Kwon & BEG’s Ga In) – Troublemaker

O m g.. they did Troublemaker LOLLL. Well.. this was slightly awkward but they actually pulled it off quite well! Yayy I’m so happy to see Adam Couple ;w;!! [I want YongSeo too please >w<] In any case, they’re both very talented people so of course they did well.. xD;; I really wish we could see the BTS/rehearsing though because I imagine that must’ve been quite awkward.


CNBLUE, FT Island, K.Will, 2PM & Super Junior – rock stage

YES. I LOVE ALL OF THEM SO MUCH. Yonghwa<3 Kyuhyun<3 and DAAMN K.Will absolutely killed it with those killer high notes!


Wonder Girls – Me, in

Ew, technical problems. >_> MBC, wae ireoni?!
But these girls can be so fierce. They definitely rocked this. I wish they’d show this side of them off more often. ^^

Jiyeon (T-ara), Luna (f(x)), and IU – I’m Your Girl

Awww ;__; these three are definitely my favorite BFF’s in the k-pop industry. <3 They’re so cute and I’m so happy they got a stage together! They’re all really pretty and sing well too. >w>


Super Junior – Mr. Simple
