The first single off their new mini album, Lovescream. So many good albums released consecutively; I haven’t even got around to listening to each album proper. But anyway! This^ MV is played backwards, it’s kinda cool. I love the scene of Tablo playing the piano; I was staring at his fingers lol. And the song itself is nice! Taru’s voice fits the song well and Tablo actually sang in it, he sounds good :D! The mini album has 7 songs, including the interludes. I think now they’re using less electric sounds and more of piano, which is quite a nice change. The instrumentals are so pretty *__*. I love Epik High so hard ♥. But I won’t tell you that I love Tablo as much xD.

My eyes my ears
My hands my feet
My lips my heart
My soul remembers you

Even when he cracks a smile
In my eyes, you, you’re smiling
Even when I hold hands with him
My hands feel your hands, only yours

My mind erased you
My heart emptied itself of you
I was sure I erased you
But I still can’t

[Chorus]
Now, even if time tries to erase you
And I try to empty my mind of you
My body still, my body still remembers you
(I remember still, with you)
Even if I put away the pictures in which we were smiling
And I try to empty my heart of you
My body still remembers you

The memories which become clearer the more I try to erase them
The memories which come to me like excuses the more I try to hate them
They’re living inside me
About when will I close my eyes in the darkness
Anyway when I walk forward, you’re there
Even when I turn back, you’re there

Even when I’m in his arms
My body feels you, only you
Even when I’m walking with him
My feet are with you, they are rooted beside you

[Chorus]

In my eyes, I only see you
Tears for you still gather
My two hands feel only you
As if handcuffed, I’m bound to the memories of you
Even passing strangers give off memories of you
I’m still going crazy ’bout you, because
My body still remembers you

It still remembers you
Even after erasing you away
(deleting you)
My everything remembers you

I actually combined the translations from the two users. Will edit when I find one version that I feel is the best. Don’t the lyrics scream “TABLO”?

Click HERE to download the song and here for a LIVE performance.

Younha’s album is so freakin’ amazing, man. So many good songs, I can’t pick one favourite. The song of the moment is Memory (it changes everyday), which features Tablo in rapping and is also composed+written by him. This explains why the song has this Epik High feel to it; it’s kinda quiet and one can’t possibly sing this song well without the right emotions. In fact, I feel that in the LIVE performances the atmosphere is always so heavy, that I’d forget to breathe for a moment. The pitch is very high too, which makes it very difficult to sing. But Younha pulled it off flawlessly. Tablo’s rapping is great as always, too. Both are them are so talented; gosh I just love them. *___*

Shin Hyesung 3rd album Side 1 – Live and Let Live.

August 30, 2008 at 5:06 pm | Posted in music, Shinhwa | 1 Comment

Firstly, whoever came up with the title “Live And Let Live” is a genius. It means “You live your life while I live mine” and “Just let me be, I’ll do things the way I want to”, which conveys the message of Hyesung will do the music he wants to, not just the music everyone is used to see him doing. Short but impactful.
.

.

Secondly, the stylist and photographer of the album are awesome. Just look at the album cover! Somehow I think it’s really beautifully shot; the angle and the whole atmosphere of it. Hyesung’s looking hot with the hair, the unbuttoned shirt, the pose and the expression. And is that a bellybutton I see? I know I sound like a pervie, but really, Hyesung has never bared skin for any of his albums before (except for Shinhwa’s 4th album, where everyone went nude, so that’s not counted), so this is something! lol. xD (The album booklet is filled with really nice pictures too! ^^)
.

Thirdly, and the best part, is of course the music. I’m very glad to see Hyesung challenging new genres that he’s never done before, and doing it well. Really, I’ve never doubted that he can pull it off. *beams* Hyesung himself said not to lower our standards just because it’s a new territory for him, and obviously, being an avid music fan more than any artist, I didn’t.

I really love this whole album; every track is unique and the (background) music itself is good, not just Hyesung’s wonderful vocals. There are actually only 8 full songs in this album (not counting the instrumentals), but I’m okay with it since the songs are good and even the instrumentals are good. Quality matters more than quantity! I don’t have a favourite song (yet), anyway, but I do have I think 4 of them?

1. Live and Let Live
[Composed by Vink / Arranged by Jung Gu Hyun]
A 2-minute introduction to the album. I think the beats sorta builds up the atmosphere for the album.

2. Awaken
[Composed & Arranged by Vink / Lyrics by Frog]
This song is described as a mix of alt-rock and emo-rock; it’s very catchy and Hyesung’s powerful voice just completes the whole song. Hyesung’s image is never associated with rock, but this song just totally convinces me that Hyesung can be a Ballad Prince, a rocker, a.. whatever he wants to be at the same time. I especially love the way he sings the first part of the song softer, and the second half more powerfully. The music itself is amazing, but more to that later.

3. 그대라서 (Because of You)
[Composed & Arranged by Vink / Lyrics by Yoon Sara]
The title track of the album; it’s described as Britrock. I love how this song starts out; the piano (or is it keyboard?) starts and then Hyesung’s voice comes, and then the guitar and everything else comes in. I love how this song seems to have a tinge of sadness to it; it must be Hyesung’s way of singing it. Heavenly voice. *sigh* I love the quiet atmosphere in the beginning of the song, how the song builds up in the middle and goes quiet again at the end with the piano. Gosh, I just love this song. *___*

4. 사랑하기 좋은 날 (A Good Day to Love) (Duet with Honey Lee)
[Composed & Arranged by Ha Jung Ho / Lyrics by Ha Jung Ho]
A retro-funk song (not that I know what that means xP); it’s quite a mellow song other than the chorus and is rather catchy. “Baby I love you~~.” Honey Lee is Miss Korea, by the way, and while she doesn’t sound especially powerful or anything, her voice is quite sweet and the duet parts sound nice. (I really think that Hyesung’s voice blends well with any females’. Strange, huh?)

5. Urban Fever (Feat. Showgun)
[Composed & Arranged by SoulShop / Lyrics by Wheesung]
The beats (retro-funk again, apparently xP) make this song sound like one to be played in a club, except that the tempo isn’t that fast, lol. The song is “a combination of retro-funk beats and electronica”, which refers to the occasional editting of Hyesung’s voice (as in those kinda voice change to a computerised sound, you know?), I think.

6. Waltz
[Composed & Arranged by Vink]
A one-minute instrumental; as the title says, it’s waltz! The waltz beat is cute and there’s the piano playing as well. Makes me think of a couple dancing. xD

7. Love Actually (Feat. Vink)
[Composed & Arranged by Vink / Lyrics by Frog]
I like the beat of the song; it’s quite fast and the song sounds happy and cute. ^^

8. Peter Pan’s Serenade
[Composed & Arranged by Song Kwang Shik / Lyrics by Song Kwang Shik]
I think this song is really interesting; a lot of different instruments are used for the music (brass and strings, etc). I’m not a big fan of jazz, especially this type of jazz with the trumpet sounds and stuff, as I think it sounds a bit corny, but heck, Hyesung sounds really good, especially when pulling those higher notes. “onjehna I love you~~” I don’t know how to spell the Korean, but whatever. xD

9. Promise (Duet. Yurisangja’s Park Seung Hwa)
[Composed by Park Seung Hwa / Arranged & Lyrics by Jung Hoon]
A very sweet song! Park Seung Hwa’s softer and higher voice is contrasting to Hyesung’s solid voice, and the two guys’ voices blend well. I think the accoustic guitar part in the middle sounds really sweet as well.

10. 후유증 (Sequelae)
[Composed & Arranged by Kim Jae Suk(Wanted) / Lyrics by Choi Shin Won]
A beautiful R&B song, and the only one in this album. Somewhat closer to Hyesung’s usual type of songs. It’s nothing short of amazing, really. I love how much control he has over his voice, how his voice blends with the music but yet stands out from the background. Gosh I just love his voice. (It’s (one of two) my favourite voice in the whole KPop, what more can I say?)

Sidetrack – Kim Jae Suk is the one who wrote Shinhwa’s Just One More Time, which is my favourite song ever, omg. I really love his voice too; I only heard him sing in one song which is a duet with Dongwan (I really love that song too!). I think I’m gonna check this guy out sometime.

11. Awaken (Inst.)
[Composed & Arranged by Vink]
I don’t usually keep any instrumentals in my music library, but seriously, I love this song. The loud drums intro alone sounds promising, and throughout the song, there is the addictive drum beats and in the chorus, the electric guitar (3:01-3:33!). There’s even scratching at the bridge! The whole song makes me wish I can play drums. xD

12. 그대라서 (Because of You) (Inst.)
[Composed & Arranged by Vink]
Vink, I don’t know who you are, but just for composing 4 songs in this album, you rock! ♥ I love this instrumental song too; there’s the piano, soft drum beats and electric guitar. My favourite part is where the electric guitar gets louder 2:28-2:46 into the song; somehow it just sounds so so so nice, homg. *___*
.

Fourthly, and probably the most obvious one, I LOVE YOU HYESUNG! Seriously. It must take a lot of courage step out of a 10-year-old comfort zone that is well established and approved of. According to Hyesung, this Side 1 is the album that he wants to do; a wide variety of genres to broaden his musical boundaries. Hyesung, your music knows no boundaries, remember that! ♥ I like all the new genres he’s trying out, but I especially love the rock. I’m all for the rock. xD

Side 2 of the album will consist of ballads – the return of the Ballad Prince! I think a lot of fans are more used to Hyesung doing ballads, so he definitely won’t abandon his home ground. (^^,) It’ll be released around December, I think. At that time I’ll probably hate you for burning a hole in my pocket, but really, I love you, Hyesung. ♥♥♥ Do include rock in your future albums, please! An album with ballads and rock will make my life complete. 😀 (What? It’s just an expression. xD)

He performed Because of You and Awaken, the two rock songs and also two of my favourite tracks off the album. (I still can’t decide; too many good songs!) There was the live band playing with him (the rock band N.E.X.T, which plays the instruments for the song), and the energy and vocals are all good. The performance is nothing short of awesome; he sang both songs almost perfectly (I say almost ‘cos I’m always objective, never biased and kinda picky in terms of quality of music), which equals to a really really good performance. I just thought that he should have been more “high” and interact more with the band members, especially the guitarist who came to the front for his guitar solo. (Or is it supposed to be an “emo” song and he isn’t supposed to do that?) But well, this is his first performance and hence he was probably nervous, since it’s a new genre for him and all. Hyesung hwaiting! ^^ (I’m SO stalking his upcoming performances. *whistles*)

Something other than the music – Hyesung cut his hair! I was actually thinking how he’d pull off the rock look with the long hair of his (in his 2nd album) that made him look so pretty (I know I’d probably get bricked by Hyesung for saying this xDD), so I wasn’t really surprised to see him sporting this new hairdo. I think I’m more used to the pretty Hyesung, but he looks okay; the image suits the songs and it looks quite cool. And I think those arms must be the result of his work-out, eh? 8D

Oh and another thing, Junjin was there too, 4:04 into the video, waving an orange balloon. xDDD

Happy 28th, Park Choong Jae Jinnie! xP Please take good care of yourself; don’t make us fans worry about you all the time. Stay happy!

Junjin is not my favourite member in Shinhwa, but I really do like him too. He has gone through a lot to be where he is now and always works hard in everything he does. He’s innocent and kinda gullible, and just such a dork at heart. =)
.

partone: MUSIC. So far Junjin has released one single and one solo album. I wasn’t really a fan of his voice (I used to think he sounds like an old man =X), which was why I didn’t listen to his first solo album until recently, despite all the good reviews about it. In Shinhwa he mostly raps and not sing (but he does sing in the later albums), so I was kinda surprised to hear him singing ballads.

New Decade

I was surprised at how good the album is, really. Now I can really truly appreciate his voice. He worked really hard for this album.

Wa* (MV | LIVE 1 2 3)
아픈 사랑 (Pain of Love)* (audio)
한걸음 (One Step) (audio)

misc:
사랑이 오지 않아요 (Love Won’t Come) (MV | LIVE 1 2 3 4)
Forever (with Linda) (MV)
It Could Be Love (MV feat. Junjin and Linda)

.

parttwo:PICTURES. Junjin is hot; he’s got a built body and manly face, plus a very intense (hot!) stare, but when he smiles it’s cute. He tends to look more serious, which is why he comes across as arrogant sometimes (I thought so too at first), but actually he’s not. A lot of people thought that he’s a player, but as far as I know, he takes his relationships seriously. Image may not equal to real personality, really.

partthree: VIDEOS. Okay, admittedly I haven’t kept up with Junjin’s solo activities since like, forever. I haven’t watched so many Banjun Drama episodes, Nonstop 4, etc etc. I will watch them, one day. =X

Dancing (1 2 3 4 5) — Junjin is one of the best dancers in Shinhwa (with Minwoo); he’s famous for his “power dance”, which he does very well. I love his robot dance too, the way he moves freakishly like a robot. o.0

Dancing to Kangta’s My Life — This was at Dongwan’s radio show; the song was played and Junjin just started dancing out of nowhere. xD (Junjin knew Kangta since High School, Kangta actually recommended him into SM.)

Dangyunhaji vs Hwangbo — Hwangbo and Junjin are very good friends. This Dangyunhaji is funny as usual, but at the end it was revealed that the two met up earlier to practice what they would say, ROFL.

Xman couple selection dance — Junjin’s robot dance! At the back Hwangbo was screaming like a crazed fangirl, lol. I really like them as friends. (I wouldn’t mind if they were an item. xP)

Imitating flexible jointed boy — Junjin was so hilarious trying to imitate the boy. The members are so mean, forcing his legs to go over his head and stuff. xD

Star Golden Bell English segment cut — Not a lot of Junjin, but this is hilarious, rofl. The guests were supposed to let the girl guess the words using English; Sung Si Kyung is really good but the others are just so funny. Junjin’s word was “Eric”, and he said, “Yo! Hmm.. My member, Shinhwa’s member, Shinhwa’s leader.. one day he said “Negapasser”.” lmao. ♥

Infinity Challenge – Junjin’s house (1 2 3) — The MCs of IC went to Junjin’s house at 2.40 am in the morning, got Junjin to go out to buy food and put 100 alarm clocks all around his house set at 9 am. (Junjin was scheduled to appear in IC the next day.) Junjin looked confused (“I feel like I’m under attack” haha!) and reluctant to show his house (first time showing his house in 10 years) and keeps asking how come they were filming so late into the night. He totally had no clue that the other MCs were up to something, lol. They left once they finished hiding the alarm clocks. The next morning Junjin was woken up by the noise, the MCs then went in to give him his mission: find the 100 alarm clocks in 10 minutes. Junjin looked so confused, it’s cute. xD He found 92 out of 100, really impressive considering he just woke up and the weird places the clocks were hidden in. =]

Golden Fishery (1 2 3 4) — Junjin talked about his worry; that people don’t know the real him, how he’s actually a weak person but because of his image people assume that he’s strong. (Gosh, I know how much that sucks.) Then he talked about how he suffered from panic disorder 5/6 years ago, his goal, the accidents that happened on him (he’s the most accident-prone member -.-), how he was brought up (he cried talking about his grandmother D:), the members, his playboy image, HwangBo (JunBo friendship rocks!), etc. You can see another side of Junjin that is rarely seen here. I love how filial a son he is,  how real and mature he seems, plus of course his humour. I really enjoyed watching this; it’s highly recommended! =)

This pimp post is quite a stump since I’m so out of date with Junjin’s fandom. But well, this is the best I can do for now. Comments are loved! ^^

Leave me

Finally I realise
That I’m nothing without you
I was so wrong, forgive me

My heart breaks like the waves
My heart wavers like the wind
My love disappears like smoke
Like a tattoo, it doesn’t erase
I can only sigh
In my heart, only dust builds up
Say goodbye

Without you I couldn’t live for even a day
It’s different from what I thought
I’m living okay alone
I call out that I miss you but you don’t answer
My false hopes are now useless

Who is that person next to you?
Does he make you cry?
Can you even see me?
Or have you already completely forgotten me?
When I worry I can’t go to you, I can’t even talk to you
I struggle through the long night alone
And erase everything a hundred times

[Chorus]
Don’t look back and leave
Don’t look for me and live
Because I loved you, because I don’t regret
Just take only the happy memories
I can stand it okay
I can endure through it okay
Through this you have to be happy
Day by day it fades away

Oh girl
I cry, I cry
Yo my all
Say goodbye

While walking if you and I
We bump into each other
Pretend that you didn’t see me
And go where you were going
If past memories keep coming back then
I might go looking for you

You have to always be happy with that person
So that I don’t change my heart
So that there won’t even be the slightest bit of hope
Live well, as if I’m watching

You’re always blue like the sky
And white like the floating clouds
You have to always laugh like that
As if there is nothing wrong

[Chorus]

I hope that by leaving me
You’ll be at peace
Forget me and live
Your tears will all be dry
When the days pass

If we hadn’t met
It wouldn’t hurt so much
The promise that we would be together forever
I want you to bury it in our memories, baby
I pray for you

[Chorus]

Oh girl
I cry, I cry
Yo my all
Say goodbye, bye
Oh my love
Don’t lie, lie
Yo my heart
Say goodbye

The single from Big Bang’s new 3rd mini album, and my new favourite song of theirs. *___* I’ve been listening to it non-stop since the day I heard it; it’s in top 10 most played songs in my iPod, lol. It’s just so catchy (as usual), but there’s this sad feeling to the song. My favourite part is Daesung’s “nunmureun~” falsetto 3:17 into the song (according to the MV above); it’s only 1 second long but gosh it’s just so nice, I don’t even know, gosh. I really love his voice, by the way, and I think he sounds especially good in this song. I like all his parts. ♥ I like T.O.P’s part in the middle of the song too, he sings that part more roughly or something. And Taeyang’s “baby” 3:36 into the song. And the way Seungri sings his first part. Oh and and GD’s English phrases, so saddd. D: Ohwells, I just love the whole song. ♥♥♥

About the MV; it’s about a girl who ditches her boyfriend (GD) for his friend (T.O.P) ‘cos she has cancer and is dying, even though she loves him. Hey, maybe that’s the whole point; she loves him so she doesn’t want him to be sad because of her illness. It sounds kinda screwed up, but that’s what I’ll do if I were her, I think. haha. Anyway. I don’t like GD’s hair, but he totally redeemed himself with his acting; his sadness is expressed very clearly at the end. ♥ T.O.P is the best-looking member, imo; he looks good as always. xD The other members look good too, but they don’t get as much screen time, haha.

I still can’t really differentiate Seungri and Taeyang’s voices. (Well, technically GD’s too, but I’ll assume that he’s the voice rapping other than T.O.P.) It’s kinda weird talking about people I don’t know anything about. I’m sounding superficial, lol. Hmm. I don’t care. xP I’m gonna add a “Big Bang” tag, ‘cos I think I may be talking more about them in the future. =D

Oh and today happens to be GD’s birthday; happy birthday GD! 😀

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

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.

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. ^^

.

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. ^^

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. =)

Lyrics by Shin Hye Sung
Composed by Lee Min Woo
Arranged by Lee Min Woo, Kang Bong Gu (M Rising team by EAIN)
Rap making – ERIC

Yeah I want you to listen closely to what I have to say
first thing you left me, the next thing I got nothing
everything was gone with you check it

Although I used to hope that the morning would arrive
But I tremble from my sad longing and I cry again

Everyone lives happily but why am I trapped in darkness
I long for you who have left, will I live my days in hell

You’re breathing in my heart, how do I forget you and continue to live
The shattering separation, the broken pieces are hurting my heart
Deciding to leave it behind and trying to forget, but there’s a huge void without you
Even if I hurt till I die I will still wait for you, until you come

Even if I try to close my eyes I will keep seeing you, I seem to be going crazy
Even if it’s just once, if I could see you, I will be fine

I’m trapped up inside of a darkness
You see I’m a helpless all I can do
I have nothing hopeless want no more or nothing’ less
you said it’s all for the best from one to ten I can’t forget it
From the beginning till the end you say time go fast don’t tell me that
You know I want you back

You’re breathing in my heart, how do I forget you and continue to live
The shattering separation, the broken pieces are hurting my heart
Deciding to leave it behind and trying to forget, but there’s a huge void without you
Even if I hurt till I die I will still wait for you, until you come

Even if everything in the world disappeared, I still couldn’t erase you
Your scent still remains even now, only as the hatred that is my wound
I can’t let you go, I definitely can’t let you go
Baby please don’t leave me alone please come back

I wrote a letter without an address, I called a number that has already been changed
I smile and greet you in a photograph that has yellowed
Are you living well without me, or are you sad
Is there anything that makes you worried more than hating me

If I erase the love in my heart that has cooled, how do I live
I hate myself for not forgetting this love, although I really hate it
I’m using this heart to say I love you, I love you, I love you
Even if my heart stops beating I will still wait for you, until you come

I LOVE THIS SONG. *.* It’s composed by Minwoo and written by Hyesung. At first I didn’t know what to think of it, but I listened to it more and somehow it struck something in me. The melody is sad and the members sing it so emotionally; it sounds kinda depressing. (I’m a sadist who loves sad songs after all lol.) I love Dongwan’s “I can’t let you go”, Hyesung’s “Baby please don’t leave me alone”, and how Minwoo sings the last part, especially the “saranghae saranghae neol saranghae” part. (Why is he so good in making me sad T.T) I think Junjin’s voice suits this song too, and Ricdy’s rapping is appropriately quiet. GUH I JUST LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS SONG. It makes me wish I hadn’t bought the black version of the album and waited for the while version. But then again I wish I had money to buy both. =X

The MV.. in the beginning it shows Shinhwa Changjo singing Once in A Lifetime, which gave me goosebumps. Then there are clips from Shinhwa’s concert in Korea this year. (When is the concert DVD coming out? I can’t wait to watch it.) A lot of cute moments which made me smile, but most the time I was feeling emotional. At the last part of the MV, it shows Minwoo talking to Shinhwa Changjo during the concert (at that time the members and fans were all crying), and even though I don’t understand what he was saying, I can tell that he was really sincere. When he said, “Saranghaeyo”, I thought that he was talking on behalf of the members. After all, Shinhwa Changjo is like their family; there wouldn’t be Shinhwa now if it wasn’t for Shinhwa Changjo. The MV ended with “Urineun Shinhwa imnida!” and “kamsahamnida!”.

Shinhwa.. thank YOU too.
