Currently Watching - Love Buffet and Sunshine Angel

Love Buffet

I would have to admit first that I do have a thing for the Fahrenheit boys (as well as JVKV) from the Taiwanese groups.  JVKV has gotten me started on this whole asian drama thing, (with Vic Zhou playing Huaze Lei) and Wu Zun in his shirtless roles... hahaha.  I also admit that the acting chops of the Fahrenheit boys are not yet very well honed, but I do think they will get there.  They are still young and are more into idol drama roles anyway (wherein we watch more for eye candy than actual plotline and acting chops).  I have just started to watch this and so far... it is very entertaining.



This is another idol drama and I would like to say that Rainie has done a great job in portraying her role here... So did Wu Zun, however, it makes me wonder if he is being typecasted.  His role here is reminiscent of his role in Romantic Princess (ultra rich guy falling for the poor girl, had to cope with being penniless for a while)... Anyway, even if he is, he looks good in the suits, as well as in the baths he takes... hahaha... another one for those who enjoy eye candy... and you would definitely get a toothache from watching this. ^^



Kdrama Obsession - My Name is Kim Sam Soon


Needless to say, I have gotten a bit addicted to Hyun Bin... not primarily for how he looks (but he does look good)... but more so for how he portrays his characters.  I loved him in Secret Garden and then started looking up on the past dramas he had done... Was I ever surprised to find out that he was the lead in Kim Sam Soon.  I had skipped watching this drama since I had always known I would get around to watching it (this was shown prior to my kdrama addiction).  I had known that this was a good drama, but I didn't know who Hyun Bin was at the time.  At any rate, after reading so much positive reviews, I had decided to check it out and I have to say, I was not disappointed. :-)

Kpop Obsession 9 - Kim Jaejoong


A few years ago, as I was incessantly browsing for information about Kim Hyun Joong, I got curious about Kim Jaejoong (when he and Hyun Joong went to Canada together). They were pretty good friends andI started reading up on him and his group (DBSK at the time). I started watching videos, and then I was hooked. I do think that DBSK is a pretty hard group to beat. They are really talented as a team, and they are very easy on the eyes too... Too easy in fact. ^^

At any rate, I started to listen to a lot of Jaejoong's songs, specially the ones that he had written lyrics for and I totally loved Insa (the OST for A Millionaire's First Love). He is really funny to watch when he is doing variety shows. He speaks what is on his mind, which is utterly ridiculous at times yet still adorably cute. He is a talented composer, really great singer, decent dancer (dancing is really not one of his strong points) and he is a good "hyung" to his members Yoochun and Junsu (JYJ). I liked that he stood up for what he believed in and hoped for the best (DBSK split) and I adore that he totally interacts with his fans thru twitter. Now, this is not to say that I am disregarding how he looks, coz you do have to admit, he may not be all that tall, but his face... his arms... abs... chest... pretty much his entire upper body... is soooo HOT! I can't say about the lower parts since I haven't exactly seen that looks like.

Enough spazzing... there is a whole trove of information about on the net and he does have a lot of pics (since they were the most photographed celebs in 2008) on the net so I would suggest you look for info if you are curious and you are sure to like the man. I do recommend that you listen to Insa, Wasurenaide, In Heaven... just a couple of the songs he composed... but if you're into Kpop, and you understand the lyrics (it can be googled if you want English translations)... I'm pretty sure you will love his songs and the man behind it.

Kpop Obsession 8 - JYJ In Heaven

I came across the fancam of this song in one of the forums for Jaejoong and I fell in love with the song.  From what I have read, this is about the guy who is missing the girl he loves (she has passed away).  It has reminded me of an old DBSK song (which incidentally, Jaejoong also wrote) INSA.  Anyway, here is the translation to the lyrics so that we know what the song means, and I am also embedding the fancam in case anyone wants to listen.



Wiping away the miracle of seeing you
I won’t be able to live on
Even when I’ve escaped from every dream
The first time I saw your image
It felt like i was drowning in the raindrops of this world

From where am I watching you?
Forever
Even if there’s regret, there’s really no way of seeing you
Memory of a shadow
Moistness of a name
It’s there in that little memory

I can’t do it, really can’t do it
It’s like you’re by my side
Not waiting, I’m not waiting anymore
I’ll try again to say something
I’ll try again to leave some memory
Walking in the dreamscape
In my footsteps
Afraid to close my eyes

Don’t go, don’t leave
Can’t you remain by my side
Lies, all are lies
I can’t hear anything
Love you, I love you
Can’t you see that from one single line
Love you, I love you
Will you love me again

So fast, you have already clean forgotten
the tracks of finding you have also disappeared

This last path, adheres closely to my tears
again I inch a little closer (again it’s about the same)

(I’ve also changed)
You’re not here by my side
I’m going to go now
I’m going to go
Now i’m going to follow your path
Follow an endless path
Going everywhere to find you
I’m afraid that losing her will bring sadness

Don’t go, don’t leave
can’t you remain by my side
lies, all are lies
i can’t hear anything
love you, i love you
can’t you see that from one single line
love you, i love you
will you love me again

don’t go, don’t go, can you remain here
lies, lies, i can’t hear
i love you, i love you, can you see that
i love you, i love you, will you love me

don’t go, don’t go, can you remain here
lies, lies, i can’t hear
i love you, i love you, can you see that
i love you, i love you, will you love me

don’t go, don’t go, can you remain here
lies, lies, i can’t hear
i love you, i love you, can you see that
i love you, i love you, will you love me
I beg you, come back to me

don’t go, don’t leave
can’t you remain by my side
lies, all are lies
i can’t hear anything
love you, i love you
can’t you see that from one single line
love you, i love you
will you love me again

Crazy Little Thing Called Love - Thai Movie


Title: First Love (Crazy Little Thing Called Love)
AKA: Sing Lek Lek Thee Riak Wa ΓΓ鼪 Ruk
Year : 2010
Genre: Romance / Comedy
Director : Putthiphong Promsakha na Sakon Nakhon and Wasin Pokpong
Country: Thailand
Audio: Thai
Subtitle: none
Starring : Mario Muarer, Pimchanok Luewisedpaiboon, Tukkie

This is the first Thai movie that I have seen.  Upon recommendations from various friends, I took a chance and watched it.  It was a very simple story about being young and in love.  It is sooo full of the cuteness and it truly reminds you of the things you did in the past for your school crush.  The story may have been amazingly simple but it speaks to the audience about how real it can be.  It may seem a bit far-fetched that they were both able to wait 9 years... However, it does say that this is based on a true story, so may, it can happen right?  This is what I love about this genre, it places hope on love...

Did I mention that Mario Maurer is amazingly cute? Well.... He is... but it makes me feel guilty finding him cute since he is so young... I might be guilty of jailtime...
