千山萬水 無數黑夜
等一輪明月
夢的邊陲 風吹不滅
從不感疲憊

東方無愧 第一是誰
讓我們追求完美
我態度堅決 面朝北 平地一聲雷

做好準備 這一回 起跑后絕不撤退
痛快一起 努力 的感覺
我们拥有 同样 的机会

[Chorus]
夢想挾帶眼淚 咸咸的淚水
你我同個世界 愛從中穿越
梦与希望在飞 我向前去追
有目标就不累 等着我超越

The song Jay wrote for the Olympics. I heard it quite a long time ago, but today it sounds especially good, somehow. It’s so freakin’ nice, I think I’m dying, lol.

Please release your new album soon, Jay! ^^

Happy 29th, 小猪!

I haven’t kept up with his news and stuff in donkey years and I’ve never really said anything much about him, but really, I love 小猪 a lot. He’s my #1 Taiwanese celebrity in terms of personality, ‘cos of his HUMOUR, his loyalty to friends, his filial piety, his ability to make even strangers feel at ease, him taking good care of everyone, his dancing, his determination to do well in everything he does, etc etc etc. Admittedly, I didn’t finish watching any of his dramas (even though he damn knows how to act), don’t know every single one of his songs (I do know most of them though) and didn’t watch as much of 娛樂百分百 as I would have liked (somehow I keep forgetting to watch =X). But really, I like him a lot. I ain’t a fantard material, but I know I’m gonna envy the lucky girl that dates him in the future. =)

Happy 29th, Minbong! ^^ Keep the passion for music burning! Most importantly, be healthy and happy. =)

partone: MUSIC. It’s first, ‘cos that’s what M is all about. ♥ Minwoo is good both as part of Shinhwa and as a solo singer. He plays the piano and composes quite a lot of songs, for Shinhwa, himself, or other singers. He looks best when he’s on stage. And one more thing. erm. For the LIVEs, beware of the sex. Seriously.

As usual, I’ll list all of his songs that I rated 5 stars. ^^

parttwo: PICTURES. Minwoo may not be have the best-looking face in Shinhwa, but he’s definitely the most stylish one, which explains why he looks good in anything – he knows what looks good on him. ^^ I’m not even going to talk about him shirtless. xPP

.

partthree: VIDEOS. He’s sexy and hot when performing, period. But other times he’s so cute, too, you can just die from his aegyo. And he’s so hyper when he’s with the Shinhwa members. xP

First, dancing! 8D The best part of Minwoo’s dancing is how much he seems to love dancing and enjoy himself on stage. His dance is always creative and entertaining. He doesn’t just show off his technique; he flirts with the audience and basically just makes his performances fun to watch. His dance has this natural feeling to it, like he doesn’t choose the music to suit his dance but just moves his body to suit the music. And he makes complicated dance moves look easy for him. So I won’t say much and just link you the videos. =D

Dancing cuts (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12) — hahaha this is just textbook HOT. ♥♥♥ Some of them are funny too. xD

Dance battle – Minwoo+Junjin vs Se7en+Wheesung — Junjin’s robot dance is cool. Minwoo is hot as always. And Se7en is a freakin’ good dancer too, in case you didn’t know.

Dance battle vs Jang Woo Hyuk — Showdown of two of Korea’s best dancers! Woohyuk won. But they have different styles – Woohyuk focuses more on technique while Minwoo focuses more on what the crowd wants. Woohyuk’s stronger in terms of technique, but Minwoo’s dance is more entertaining. Both are hella good dancers. ^^

Dancing on Xman featuring Jang Woo Hyuk — How I wish I was the girl, lol. Cool outfit, freakin’ good techniques. We can’t really tell from his performance, but Minwoo injured his leg in this. He was professional and danced till the end, though. =)

Various dancing cuts with JWH (1 2 3) — Because Minwoo+Woohyuk= the dancing duo! 8D What do I call them, woosquare? xPP

Gayo Show rehearsal — Love the outfit. And of course the dancing.

Manwon Happiness cuts:
Brian cut — Minwoo imitated Hwanhee a bit, sounding really similar to the original. Brian sold a piece of food to Minwoo for 50 won.

Hwanhee cut
— In the beginning the Shinhwa members tried to help Minwoo complete his mission (getting the machine thing to vibrate more), then Minjin imitated Hwanhee singing, and then Minwoo got Hwanhee to help by getting him to run and sticking the machine to Hwanhee’s throat while he sang. Hwanhee looked eager to help; he’s cute. xP

Shinhwa cut — Shinhwa was in the dance studio; at first Minwoo got them to guess a word for his mission, then there was some Minjin (cute!!), and then Minwoo started dancing to a children’s song and suddenly the rest of Shinhwa joined in. They’re all so cute and noisy, lol. In the end the other members did “JoJungRin hwaiting!” but Eric did “Minwoo hwaiting!” and made the heart sign, so Dongwan pushed him away. xD

vs Boom (1 2) — In the beginning Minwoo went to the rooftop to eat the fruits that he ‘planted’, so cute lmao. But of course he couldn’t get away with it and was fined 700 won. Then Minwoo got a mission to”win in a game”, and Hyesung was there in the room watching his own performance in television, so Minwoo pulled the plug to get his attention lol. The smart Hyesung knew that it was a mission straight away. Minwoo then got Hyesung to play the palm-pushing game, but he lost and ended up falling on Hyesung, and Minsyung hug! lol. They did “Boom hwaiting!” at the end, haha. Hyesung is pretty, by the way. xP Then it shows Boom’s mission, and he got Younha to guess a movie title, which she did, and then she sang a little. (girlcrush!) Then Minwoo got a mission again and Kangin and Brian showed up. Brian cracked some lame jokes, haha. Boom then collected leftover food from Suju’s 2nd anniversary party. In the end Minwoo passed the Manwon bag to Crown J.

Miscellaneous clips:
Minwoo Hidden Camera — This is a MUST-WATCH. Basically HyeWon, a very pretty MC, confessed her love to Minwoo, and we see how he reacted. Andy was there too. In the beginning HW gave a mesh shirt to Minwoo, and asked him to try it on. So he did. Then HW started confessing hat she’s liked Minwoo since Shinhwa came out, but Minwoo kept thinking about the 8-years age difference lol. They then exchanged phone numbers and HW asked him to go out with her after she gets to college, and gave him her necklace as a token of the promise, so he gave her a jacket. Back to the going out question, he said that he can go out with her if her feelings for him grow or if she fell in love with him. And when she asked him to promise, he said, “I can promise, but until then, let’s not change”, which I thought was really sweet. HW then called her mum and told her that she was gonna go out with Minwoo, lol. Then Andy came back into the room and HW left. Minwoo said,”It was so awkward I thought I was going to die.” LOL! When Andy asked, he said that HW is nice and kind, and when Andy told him to go out with her, Minwoo said, “Ey.. A man can’t go out with someone that easily. Am I you?” ROFL. HW then sms-ed him, revealing the hidden camera. haha. Minwoo is a nice guy! ♥

Minwoo house tour — I remember watching this with clear subs before but I guess it got removed, so I can just link you to one with blurry subs. =( They visited Minwoo’s house, and it was surprisingly empty, there’s little food or furniture. Minwoo is just really adorable throughout. I think it wasn’t long after Shinhwa lived separately; he seemed lonely without the members and seemed to miss them a lot, especially Eric. You get to see his extensive wardrobe, proof of his good style. =) Then he had rehearsal with the other Shinhwa members; Dongwan was being a dork (as usual lmao), Andy sweating a lot after practice, the usual playing around (well, they’re all dorks xD) and Minwoo giving Junjin a sweater which can be worn inside out too (cool!).

EDIT: The one with clear subs is here from 3:20 onwards; thanks to beckery for the link! =)

Minwoo and JWH acting JWH’s first kiss — This is HILARIOUS. Apparently they lost some game so this is the punishment. Minwoo acted as Woohyuk’s girlfriend, and he acted so girly (but not gay), it was SO CUTE! (He can pass off as a girl hahaha.) In the beginning Minwoo smoothed his hair and started acting feminine, then when Woohyuk said that his girlfriend was a daring type, he acted accordingly lol. Woohyuk looks lost haha! Minwoo is such a good sport. ♥

Minwoo and JWH acting old — A cut from Loveletter, I watched this episode with subs before I think; if I’m not wrong Bae Seul Gi requested them to act what they would say to her after they grow old together. Very cute! Minwoo break-danced and Woohyuk did his robot dance too. ^^

090707 St Shindongyub SBSU Minwoo cut — I can’t read the small Chinese subs, but the main point of this video is that Minwoo is so good with his tounge, LOL. xDD

Romance Dangyunhaji with Chae Yeon — The usual mushy exchanges, and Minwoo sang Girlfriend for her. Look at Hwanhee’s expression at the back; hilarious ROFL. Minwoo lost when ChaeYeon said, “I don’t like easy love.” haha.

Chae Yeon Star Scope Minwoo cut — Chae Yeon and Minwoo met at the gym, and they joked around. Minwoo talked about how Chae Yeon seems to glow when she’s exercising (..I need to exercise loll xP), and at the end Chae Yeon talked about his abs. They’re quite cute together, actually. ^^

Brain Survivor Minwoo cut — In the beginning Minwoo, then Eric and Minwoo did beatboxing. Then there is the usual Shinhwa playing around (they coordinated their every action, lol), and there was talk about how Minwoo changes when drunk. It’s funny how Minwoo said he can’t remember anything, and Dongwan recalled how Minwoo told him, “I really treasure you” when he was drunk, lmao. (WOODONG! xD)

Minwoo prank — Minwoo dressed up and acted as an old woman, and asked some random guy to piggyback him to some place. He looked and sound funny, lol. But poor guy, must have been heavy. The best part is the ending, though, where Minwoo asked the guy to put him down, stood up and ran away, doing summersaults. DORK. xDD

Going crazy in the car
— The title says it all. It’s about 1:30 into the video; I think he was on high. xP I love how nice he is to his fans. There’s some Jinsyung and Ricwan being dorks at the end too. ^^

Acting Being cute (1 2 3 4 5) — Minwoo is naturally cute without needing to act, when he does act cute, it’s.. really really cute. ♥

Fan-made videos (1 2) — These fans really know which clips to use. 8D

.

partfour: ACTING. So far Minwoo has acted in Nonstop 5 and the movie Holy Daddy, but that’s about it. I actually think that he has potential in acting, and will do well if he continues acting. But he’s very busy being a singer alone, so that’s kinda difficult, I guess.

Nonstop 5 episode 252 — I haven’t watched all the Nonstop 5 episodes, but I did watch a few and I really really like this one. Basically JungRin liked KyungJoon, but KyungJoon rejected her before (even though he liked her too), so she wanted to get over him and pretended to date Minwoo, who was their mutual friend. Tablo and HanHyoJoo are so cute too; Tablo was holding a birthday party for her, but everyone kept getting distracted by JungRin’s love triangle, lol. (Tablo is so cute lmao.) Anyway, initially Minwoo said he’d help JungRin get together with KyungJoon, but apparently he liked her too, so he was torn between his feelings and JungRin’s feelings towards KyungJoon. He took her on a date (he was so cute teasing her haha), but in the end helped them get together. I almost cried for Minwoo. T.T

Holy Daddy – A movie starring Minwoo and Haha. Wontak (Minwoo) had a bad relationship with his father, YoungGu. When YoungGu died, he asked an angel (crazy angel lmao) to be given a chance to be Wontak’s best friend, even for an instance, so he was rebirth into Wontak’s classmate, DongHoon (Haha). I think this movie is really underrated. I enjoyed this movie a lot; it is a really touching story about a father and his son. A lot of funny and cute moments too; Haha is hilarious as the out-of-place student, and Minwoo is hot as a hooligan. Haha got beaten up a lot in this, poor him! He did a really good job, though. Minwoo too. ^^

Today, 27th July, has been officially established as Fly to the Sky Day in San Fransisco. I even has the document to prove it. Seriously, how COOL is that? xD

I haven’t been keeping up with their fandom (=X), but the last thing I know, they were holding concerts. That^ is a fancam of their Maria performance in Tokyo concert, and Brian’s leg was hurt at that time (he was still so professional, jumping about and all, but omg he was literally limping; I hope he’s better now), so Hwanhee gave him a piggyback ride. SO CUTE! xDD Hwanhee piggybacked him like he weighs nothing, lol. I like Hwanhee’s hair like that. But Brian got Hwanhee’s very short haircut, lol. He still looks good though. ^^

I’m saying this again; THERE ARE TOO LITTLE FLY TO THE SKY VIDEOS AVAILABLE ONLINE. =(( I’ve been so FTTS-deprived, I even resorted to watching some of their videos without subs. D:

Today’s picture is SS501, ‘cos they just released a new mini Korean album, Find. (Finally new Korean release! *__*) The mini album includes 3 new songs, one very short one and a few instrumentals. All the songs are good. ^^

.

.

.

.

.

..

.

.1. 넌나의천국 (You Are My Heaven) (MV)
This song was previously released as a digital single. It’s a very cute and happy-sounding song, and I like how Hyungjoon’s voice is slightly altered in the front part and also his little adlibs. Jungmin’s “saranghae saranghae” part is cute! Everyone sounds great and one can tell how much Kyujong’s vocal improved, but it’s kinda freaky how much Hyunjoong’s rapping sounds like Hyungjoon’s. The MV is really cute. =)

2. 고맙다 (Thank You)
Hyunjoong’s solo ballad; I think his voice sounds really nice here.

3. Find (MV)
This song uses a lot of string instruments, it sounds nice. Everyone sounds awesome! Youngsaeng sings most of the song and he sounds great as always, but I wish the other members sing more. Well, I suppose only Youngsaeng can pull off those parts with in that pitch with that amount of power. He never fails to impress. =) The MV is black-and-white and the boys look great in suits! Jungmin is caught touching Kyujong’s butt, though. I can’t believe that wasn’t cut. xDD

4. 사랑해X5 (I Love You X5)
Just a 46 seconds long sound clip; I love how happy everyone sounds, randomly shouting “SARANGHAE~!” lol. xP

.

Now I’m certain that my favourite member is Hyungjoon. I love his voice, even though when I first listened to it I thought that it sounds very nasal. It’s unique and nice! I think he’s the one always doing the falsettos, and I think his voice suits rapping very well. He’s really good-looking too, in my opinion, and just SO CUTE lmao. xD

But the best singer is still Youngsaeng, the best-looking is still Hyunjoong, the nicest member is still Kyujong and the craziest is still Jungmin. So in conclusion, I love them all. =D

Epik High (feat. Younha) – Umbrella

Tags: ,

Before I even realized it the rain gathered around my feet
The tears that I kept from falling are pooling in my eyes
I cry

Sounds of the clock in a barren room
The noise of the rain on the roof and my lips
Inside the pocket of the coat I rarely wear
is the ring along with the overwhelming memory
I haven’t seen the city in a few days
The gathered rain are like little mirrors
I struggle within them because of the pain
Because without you I’m a chair with a short leg
The umbrella was too small for the both of us
but the umbrella shielded us from the cold world
Now it seems much to big and awkward
Your left shoulder always got so wet
I hang my head with the weight of the memories
My shoelaces are untied, undone
And all that’s next to me is the rain and wind
(not there) is a person that will hold my umbrella for a while
and I cry

Before I even realized the rain gathered around my feet
The tears that I kept from falling are pooling in my eyes
I cry

[Chorus]
You were the umbrella above my head
In the night where the cold rain fell above my shoulders
You being by my side was a habit
I can’t be without you
alone in the rain

Alone in the rain, rain, rain
Nothing but pain, pain, pain
Girl I just want you to know
Alone in the rain, rain, rain
Nothing but pain, pain, pain
And I just can’t let you go

The ground has gathered the tears of the sky
I can see the moon behind the clouds that block the stars
The sound of lonely shoes echo down the alley
I turn around, it’s just a heart wrenching night
A shadow that looks just like me
The two of us that couldn’t see “us”
Are we now two people?
The answer is so lonely
The picture in my mind and my response is vague
The umbrella was too big in my eyes
The umbrella I will close facing the world that made me cry
The umbrella that I opened with the promise of forever
Under the ripped umbrella are the two hearts
I guess even though I turn around you wont be there
I put my two hands deep inside my pockets
Even though I walk as if carefree
My two cheeks will become wet so easily

Before I even realized the rain gathered around my feet
and the tears that I kept from falling are pooling in my eyes
I cry

[Chorus]

I opened the door of my heart
you’re the umbrella above my head
You are my shadow, I am your shade
You’re the umbrella above my head
I opened the door of my heart
you’re the umbrella above my head
You are my shadow, I am your shade
You’re the umbrella above my head

Because you are not next to me
With an umbrella, outside your house
I waited for you
I cry

You were the umbrella above my head
In the night where the cold rain fell above my shoulders
You being by my side was a habit
I can’t be without you
I need you back in my life

You were the umbrella above my head
In the night where the cold rain fell above my shoulders
You being by my side was a habit
I can’t be without you
Forever in the rain

There are a few versions of the translations, but basically they are all the same. I really love this song; you can always trust Epik High to combine ballad and hip hop to create a wonderful song like this. Their voices blend together really nicely; Epik High actually thought of Younha when they were writing this song and took out a lot of their parts just for her to sing it. Younha sounds like she’s repressing her feelings in this song. Her part is SO hard to sing. It doesn’t sound so but really, try singing it and you’d realise that the pitch is high and a lot of control is needed. I think I’ve said enough how much I love her, so I won’t say anymore. And Epik High guys always sound awesome, so really, just listen to this song. =)

I’m kinda disappointed that Younha, Mithra and Tukutz didn’t appear in the MV, but it’s okay, I guess. Tablo is so drenched in it, I hope he didn’t catch a flu. The scene where he brushed his teeth with the rainwater is funny, haha. The ending with the rainbow coming out of the two people’s heads are LOL. xD
.
.

Its first LIVE performance on 20/07. Younha sounded nervous in the beginning, but after that she sounds awesome as always. She’s so pretty, omg major girlcrush. *.* Tablo’s get-up looks good and Mithra is cute with the specs. The fans were holding umbrellas, lmao.
.
.

I’ve never embedded so many videos of one song in one post, but I DON’T CARE I love them. This is the second performance on 25/07, and it sounds as awesome as always. I’m saying this ‘cos they always manage to sound exactly like in the recorded version. Tukutz looks cute with his mini keyboard. =D

I hope Epik High and Younha will have more collaborations in the future; they’re awesome together. =)

I really think that his gaze in this picture is beautiful.

Yunho seemed teary-eyed during the Yeo Haeng Gi performance. He looked pissed during the whole event, actually. I hope nothing is wrong. =X
