More K-Pop

So there are 3 k-pop albums that I just can't get enough of! Love these songs and artists! If I wasn't a cheap ass and broke, I would actually go and buy them! (wow I haven't bought a CD in FOREVER). But with technology nowadays, I can just get them for free. Anyways, here they are! Check them out yourself if you haven't.

Super Junior - Sorry, Sorry (3rd Album)

I mentioned before that I really liked Super Junior's new song Sorry, Sorry. Well I got to FINALLY listen to their whole album and OMGEEE! I LOVE IT! haha seriously. Out of all their albums, this is the best they've done. And usually, I only like a few songs from their albums, but there are quite a lot I like in this one. This is really HUGE improvement since their debut in 2005. Here's their tracklist from the album in order. The ones I put (*) next too are my personal favorites! (even though there all good)

1. Sorry, Sorry*
2. Why I Like You*
3. Let's Not*
4. Angela
5. Reset*
6. Monster
7. What If*
8. Heartquake feat. Micky & Yunho (from DBSK!!!)*
9. Club no. 1
10. Happy Together
11. Dead At Heart*
12. Shining Star

So here's their comeback performance that was on the 13th. They performed Why I Like You and Sorry, Sorry. People say "Why I Like You" was plagiarized by Ne-Yo's "Closer", especially in the chorus. Honestly, it does sound like it to me! But u be the judge. I still like the song

2AM - Time For Confession
When it came to singing, I always preferred 2AM over 2PM. But when it came to looks, 2PM. For those who don't know them, they're under JYP Entertainment (who manages The Wonder Girls). 2PM has 7 guys and are more of a hip hop dance group. 2AM consists of 4 guys with a more ballad r&b type. When performing together, they are called One Day (where do koreans come up with these things?!?!) Anyways, I was only able to get 3 songs from this album, not sure how many exactly there suppose to be. But all the songs are great!

1. A Friend's Confession
2. Lost
3. Though I've Turned Away Once Before

here's the MV for their song A Friend's Confession with english subs

It's sad that Boys Over Flowers will be ending next week. Noooo! =( But their OSTs are awesome! So good that they ended up making a 2nd one since the first soundtrack was so popular. All the songs are good, but THESE are my personal favorites (not in any particular order)

1. Ashily - Lucky
2. SS501 - Because I'm Stupid
3. Some Day - Do You Know (absolutely love their melody and harmony in this song!!!)
4. T-Max - Bad For The Heart (Ballad Version)
5. A'st1 - Yearning of the Heart
6. SHINee - Stand By Me

My Passion Type

So I took this quiz on facebook about my passion type. It is REALLY accurate to me! After taking the quiz, here's what the results said:

Passion is your middle name

Key Traits: approachable, enthusiastic, energetic, open-minded, positive, animated You are a positive spirit bundled with insatiable enthusiasm. You aren't hesitant about diving head first into new adventures and relationships. Although you might find yourself surrounded by people similar to you, you are about as open-minded as can be. You love to absorb yourself into different cuisines, different sights, different cultures and even different opinions. That's why, when seeking a romantic partner it's more important to you that they possess the same enthusiasm for life and love, rather than the same stance on a political proposition. There are few things you find more attractive and appealing than meeting that special someone who can hold his or her own in a debate AND go adventuring with you.

My Family's Hope

Right now I should be writing my paper... but this is something I've been wanting to write about for awhile but never have time too. So here it goes

So for those who have followed my blogs in the past know that the relationship between my mom and I isn't so great. Can you even call what we have a relationship?! A dysfunctional one, maybe.

Anyways, about a week ago, my mom said something I NEVER expected her to say to me. "You are the hope in this family". Ok first off, WOW! and Secondly, WTF?!?!?!? lol I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm flattered. But seriously?!?!?!? After years of putting me down, criticizing me, calling me a disappointment and a failure, etc. she comes up to me and says this out of nowhere?! haha I just don't get it at all. At first I laughed it off and thought she was joking. But she went on to say "when you graduate and get a job, I need you to help me put the kids to college", which is something I always thought of doing anyways actually, without her even having to tell or ask me. I'm not even the eldest child and feel like this should be my brothers job (but lets face it, those who know my brother know he would never do this for us).

I guess my point is, she always gave me this feeling where I thought she didn't think much of me. That she thought I was the irresponsible child out of all her kids and that I wasn't dependable or reliable, no matter how much I've shown how mature and responsible I am. So to hear her actually say that I'm our family's hope made me feel like for once, she believes in me. BUT (and there's always a but) knowing my mother, things might change later. Who knows. Lets just see how long this feeling will last....

So 2 nights ago, I was REALLY bored and was on the phone with 2 of my friends, KC & Leilani. Leilani was @ KC's house cus she was bored too so I decided to drop by as well. I figured that I'd rather be bored with other people than bored by myself. hehe anyways, we started reminincsing about our childhood and what disney movies we grew up watching and loved! Beauty & the Beast, Aladin, Lady & the Tramp, The Aritocrats, etc. My friend KC then said she still had the movie The Lion King on VHS. lol wow VHS... didn't think they still existed. So we watched it! Man that brings back hella memories. So here's a list (in no particular order) of my top Disney movies growing up! They don't make them like these anymore. These are classics!

Except for Scars song that he sings in here, I loved all the other songs! I think this was the first disney cartoon movie where I actually cried! I cried when Mufasa died ='( I saw this in theatre twice! And both times, the theatre was so packed that people ended up sitting on the stairs and aisle.

I actually sang their song A Whole New World in my elemtary school talent show with 2 other girls. Robin Williams did an excellent job playing the Genie

Eddie Murphy's character here was HILARIOUS! Mushu (the dragon) just cracked me up throughout the whole film. Not to mention that this movie was about an asain girl who can kick some ass! This movie also introduced me to Christina Aguilera, who sang the original song Reflection, in which Mulan sings. At the time I didn't even know Christina Aguilera existed, and is now considered as one of my favorite music artist of all time.

Flounder was the bomb! haha if you don't remember who that was, it was the blue and yellow fish, Ariel's best friend. He was my favorite character in this movie. And my favorite scene was when Ariel and Eric was on a row boat and Sabachian sang Kiss The Girl. But the scene that scared the crap out of me was when that lady octupus turned all big and scary and sounded like a man. I cried =(

So I remember watching this movie in the theatres with my mom. I remember I liked all the colors cus it seemed like everything in this movie was so colorful. My favorite song here was "
Color of the Wind"
and I would sing it alllll the time!

So for the most part, I liked these cus of their songs. If you noticed, I didn't even put Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, or Beauty & the Beast. Those with princess and princes to me seemed all the same. Poor girl meets rich prince and there's an evil witch or stepmother blah blah blah. It's not like I hated them, I did enjoy them too. But I thought the one's I mentioned showed more variety. Since I was a kid until now even, I watch Disney. Especially after watching scary movies, I would almost always watch disney right after so I won't be scared anymore and be happy! hehe k well thats all for now! So until next time <3

Upcoming Events for Next Month

I wan't April to come already! hehe turns out that next month will be a hectic and busy month for me, and I love it! April 3 will be the Divas 4 Divas Concert @ SJSU. Next week will be finals and then spring break. Then I start a new and hopefully LAST quarter @ De Anza on April 6 before transfering to state in the fall. I got my acceptance letter to SJSU, so now I have to decide if I wanna continue to stay home for school or go to SFSU. Even though I always talked about going to SFSU and that SJSU is my last choice, it still all depends if my parents can afford me living in SF. I pray it will happen, but we'll see! My relatives from Hawaii will be here as well starting April 8-21. I miss them so much! I always enjoy having my relatives come visit, because that's the only time we can actually spend some REAL family time together doing things we never really have time to do or thing we wouldn't normally do. But while my aunt, uncle, and little cousin will be staying for awhile, my other cousin Jericah will only be here for a week cus of school (April 7-15) But we'll try and fill in that week with as much activities as possible. And whatever we don't get to do, we can do it over the summer when they come again God willing. So stay tone for A LOT of pics to be posted on my myspace and facebook! Also, on April 12 will be the Britney Spears Concert feat. the Pussycat Dolls @ HP Pavillion. I'm very excited about this! We're all the way on top balcony though cus my friends and I are cheap. haha but we just really wanna enjoy ourselves and watch them live, and that's good enough for us.

So on a side note, I decided NOT to get my camera. As much as I want it soooo bad, I realized that there's more important things I need. Like a computer. When I first got my laptop, it was suppose to be for school purposes only. And it has been so far, but also for other unnecessary things that I'm scared my hard drive won't be able to take it one day. So my friend will buy parts and build me a computer so I can have more space and storage for all my music, pics, and videos. Plus be able to burn my dvds and etc. That's gonna cost me over $700. After that, I will continue to work hard and buy my camera. Hopefully will get the camera by the end of the year.

That is all. Promise to blog about more fun and interesting things later! lol sorry if it seems so boring and random nowadays! As soon as something depressing happens to me (which it always does), I'll go back to blog u about it. Cus that's when I truly open up my heart and soul. So until next time!

So sorry it's been awhile since my last blog. Believe it or not, but I do have a life. haha joke. But anyways, other than school and work, that's pretty much all I've been busy with. And in between, I still find the time to catch up on my korean dramas and music. haha so here's what I've got so far:

Since Boys Over Flowers is still airing on Mondays & Tuesdays, I get really impatient waiting a whole week for the new video uploads with english subs. So to get the anxiousness out of me, I started watching another drama that Goo Hye Sun (the main girl in B.O.F.) starred in, which is Pure Heart aka Hearts of 19. Original broadcast had 167 episodes but mysoju got it down to 122 episodes. It's pretty good, although I skip a bunch of the parts and focus on her love story. If you haven't watched it and are bored waiting for Monday and Tuesday to come ever week like I am, then watch that. Here's the Synopsis for it that I got from DramaWiki:
Gukhwa (Koo Hye Sun) is a young country girl who leaves Yanbian (China) for Korea to get married. When she arrives in Seoul, she finds out that her fiance had just died in a car accident. Instead of returning to China, she decides to stay and create a new life in Korea. With the help of her fiance's family and in particular his nephew, Ugyeong (Lee Min Woo), she is able to overcome the hardship of living in a foreign country.

Another drama that keeps me waiting every week since it's currently airing is a taiwanese drama starring Jerry Yan of Meteor Garden (Taiwanese Version of Boys Over Flowers). The drama is called Starlit. As much as I love the romantic comedy dramas, I still prefer the sad dramatic ones for some reason. This one is pretty good and I haven't cried.... YET. But I know I will eventually cus it's a sad story.Cheng Yue (Jerry Yan) and Rui Shan (Alice Ceng) are pianist and cellist. They are the most high-profile golden couple in the music industry. One day, Cheng Yue tried to save Xiao Lu (Terri Kwan) from car accident. But unfortunately he break his arm and can't play piano. Devastated Cheng Yue give up music and chose to travel. 2 years later, Cheng Yue arrives in Shanghai, and meet Xiao Lu (Terri Kwan). The 2 become colleagues, and due to work interactions, they gradually establish a friendship. At this time, Rui Shan finally tracks down Cheng Yue. She tries her hardest to get Cheng Yue to return to the music world. However, Xiao Lu encourages him to face life with a postive attitude, and Cheng Yue realises that he is impacted by Xiao Lu’s kidness and enthusiasm. From being a person who has hit rock-bottom, wallowing in self-pity, he has re-ignited the passion in life.

Cheng Yue falls in love with Xiao Lu, but he is rejected by her, why? Is their love fated to be a tragedy? Although they are not blessed, although they do not have a future, Cheng Yue still bravely loves Xiao Lu...

And finally.. another awaited group has made their comeback. After 1 year and 6 months, The original and full 13 members of Super Junior are back! Their new song Sorry, Sorry is pretty catchy to me. A lot different from their other music like U or Dont Don and even my favorite Marry U. This seemed a bit more mature, and judging from their music video, they seem to be trying to come off as a more manly image. Here's the MV

And of course, I did my research. Turns out that the dance was choregraphed by Nick Bass and Trent Dickens, who also choregraphed for other artisits such as Justin Timberlake. Here's them performing their choregraphy for Super Junior's Sorry, Sorry. And let's face it, of course they dance it a WHOLE LOT BETTER.

My First Love

As I sit here thinking what to write about, I suddenly started thinking about my past (again). I tend to always think back over my experiences and the people I've met. I had a lot of good and bad experiences, some you can't even imagine. And I've met a lot of good people who became really important people in my life. Although some of them I don't talk too anymore, I still cherish everything we had together while it lasted. I believe it's the people in our lives that help shape us into the person we are becoming. That goes for the bad people in our lives as well. So as I go through these people in my head, one in particular sticks out.

My first love.

Everyone must have experienced this at least once in your life. If not, I do hope you will soon. I'm not going to give his name though, just to make it more interesting. He's someone I actually knew since elementary school, but never talked too until our last year of middle school. Rather than going over this WHOLE story on how we met and what we've been through (I can write a whole novel on this), what's more important to me and what I want to try and get to is the kind of person he was, what we are now, and what he's done for me.

Those feelings of joy and happiness, as well as pain, tears, and sadness are all the things I experienced with him first. He wasn't the best looking guy in the world. He's actually someone who you'd never take notice of and pass by aimlessly. But he was sweet, caring, shy, and the quiet type. He was someone who you knew right away would treat you with respect and be faithful to you. He's someone who you don't just have a fling with, but the kind of person you want to settle down with.

Have you ever met someone who just by them existing in your life, gave you the urge to become a better person? That's who he was to me. Forget all my relationships before and after him. He was the first person who I felt truly cared and loved me for ME. I've said the words "I love you" before and never meant it. It was easy for me to say those words because it meant nothing to me. But saying it to him, the words wouldn't come out at first. That's when I knew that I truly did love him. And I probably always will.

Although things didn't work out and took me awhile to accept that, we both eventually moved on with our lives and on to other relationships. But even so, he is someone who will always and forever be in my heart. We're still friends and see each other once in awhile. I can stop talking and being friends with a lot of my ex's, but for him, it's not possible. We will always be friends in the end. He taught me so much. I never thought I was worthy of being loved, but he taught me otherwise. He probably thinks he didn't do enough for me. But he did everything for me. Even though there were times I felt like I was the one putting most of the effort into our relationship, I know he tried the best he could in his own way. Even after the relationship ended, he said he'd hope we can still be friends. Now for most of the part, that doesn't happen between ex's. But he truly did try his best to still keep our friendship, no matter how stubborn I was wanting more. He's said to me before "I hope you find someone who will treat you better than I ever did". To me, that's something I will always remember because it came from his heart and showed me that he really wants me to be happy. And I know someday, I will be.

I know a lot of people tend to resent their ex's. Some can't even seem to let go of their first love. And that saying "you can never forget your first love" I believe is 100% true. Others have asked me before that if this person was to ever want to start something again, if I would. My head says no, but my heart says yes. For one, it's been years and we both are not the two young naive teenagers we once were. Too many things have changed. But it would be nice to see where it goes if it would ever happen again (though I know for a fact it never will happen, but it doesn't hurt to imagine it). Either way, no matter where we are in the next 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, and so on, he's someone whom I will always be grateful for in my life.

Dear Mom

So remember when I had SNSD aka Girls' Generation song playing as my background music called "Dear Mom" Well they FINALLY performed the song live! They did it awhile back too but it wasn't even the whole song. Since their debut in 2007, I think they improved a lot! Of course, I've heard better but I still love them for trying! Just thought I'd share this with you! Enjoy!

SM Entertainment rocks! =) I love all their groups! I'm a huge DBSK, Super Junior, Boa, SHINee fan! If I was Korean, I'd join their agency. lol seriously!
