Congrats BigBang Contest Winner!

안녕하세요~

The BigBang contest that I co-host with K-Idols Blog was a success. Thank god, a lot of VIPs gave feedbacks to the BigBang Stories and with @Afagyel‘s help, the best 10 were chosen. She emailed me all 10, and choosing the best one was not an easy task.

However, one story did caught my eyes and I think she wrote it well. Reading her answers, I knew that she’s the one. so, congratulations, 축하해요 to the lucky winner;

So what made me chose her as the winner? Here’s her answer to “My BigBang Story” contest:

By: Zulaiqa Aziz.

How did you find out about Bigbang? Who introduced them to you?I was late to class, but then I kept on listening to my friend singing to something, although we were running at that time. I asked her and se said that I should know from what she was singing itself, “B-I-G to the BANG!” I thought it was something about the Bigbang Theory, but finally, someone was too kind to help me by telling me that it was actually Bigbang, a Korean boy band. And I just said, “Ooooohhh.” That was how I know Bigbang. 😀
What was the first Bigbang song you listened to?It was Gara gara Go. First, I thought Bigbang is a Japanese group, but after a friend of mine, whom’s a VIP, slowly explained, taught and introduced me to the group. I finally knew it’s actually a Korean group. Lol.
What was your first impression of Bigbang? Aren’t they weird or what with that colourful outfits on Gara Gara Go MV? But they all looked so bubbly and slowly, after listening to their other songs, I bean to be attracted to them.
What do you like about Bigbang? – I like their music, their personalities and images. To sum it up, I like everything about them.

Who was your first bias? Why? G-Dragon. I just love the way he raps and his style is something I really love to see. After some Google-ing and YouTube-ing, I really fell in love with his talented and stylish side. Oh, I remember how I spent most of my time in front of my laptop, just to do some research on him. =P
Do you still have the same bias? Or has it changed through time? Why?Yes, my love is still for GD. Although, I started to love listening to Taeyang’s songs (oh btw, it’s playing right now), I still love GD. What to do? I think nobody can replace him (oh yes, cheesy me. Lol).
List 3 of your favourite Bigbang songs and tell us why you’ve chosen them. – Oh my God! Spent most of my time to answer this question! Hmmm, after some time of polling and having Q&A sessions with myself, I’m finally able to pick. Haru-Haru: this is the song, which I loved the first moment I listened to it. – It’s like love at first sight or should I say love at first hearing? Hehehe. Lies: this is one of the songs, which I know; I’ll never get bored listening to. The music and lyrics really make me in love with the song. Furthermore, it’s written by my love’s a.k.a. GD’s. =D Koe Wo Kikasete: their pronunciation’s really like a true Japanese! With the melodious music and their amazing voice, I really love this song!!
What’s your favourite Bigbang MV? Why? Haru-Haru used to be my favourite MV, but now it’s changed to Tell Me Goodbye. That’s because they all look damn hot in the video and the whole concept itself impressed me. Furthermore, the song is really good! Credits to the production team who made the MV so great and also the boys for being so hot and handsome!
What’s your favourite TV show that featured Bigbang? Why? – If variety shows with all 5 of them, then it’s got to be Intimate Note. They’re super cute when playing for lunch boxes and the classroom moments really made me exercising my jaws and stomach due to over laughing! =P But I really love Family Outing season 1! Daesung was so cute and funny and I can see the dorky side of them and that really made me more in love with them.
Who’s your favourite couple? (G-Ri, GDYB, G-Top, etc.)Although I’m not so into this pairing thing (mostly because GD’s mine haha), I’ll say G—Ri. They are so cute and with their different personalities, they create a fun-happy couple.
Who do you want see collaborating with bigbang in the future (It can be another idol group or someone from outside Korea)? If another idol group, I’ll say C.N. BLUE because both are currently doing great in Japan and I really want to see BigBang collaborate with a band. It’ll be daebak!! Another one, I’ll say USHER.  It will be a great combination. How I wish my dream would come true. Haha.
Message to Bigbang: Dear BigBang, I just want to tell you that this fan from Malaysia really loves you. Hope you will be a great group and succeed in the industry. Keep making great music and I’ll always support you guys. Stay healthy, and stay happy! Love you guys and do come to Malaysia for a concert ok? =)

Congratulations,winner!축하해요!

안녕하세요..

The 2PM Sing-A-Long contest has ended last Monday. Only three participants sent in their entries, which (if we look on the positive side of it) makes it easier for me to judge. 🙂 Well, it’s okay for me. Perhaps some other time I will hold another contest like this, i.e. a sing-a-long.

So, to cut things short, the winner for 2PM Sing-A-Long is…….. *drum roll*…..

Basically, she wins because I liked her Hanguk pronunciation. She could pass for a native Korean speaker, IMHO. LOL. So congratulations, Arfah! 축하해요! Do anticipate your prizes!! ♥ ♥ ♥

No participants

안녕하세요,여러분들..

Can’t say that I’m not sad seeing there’s no participants for the 2PM contest that I posted. Well, a few have shown their interests, but my Hanmail inbox is still empty. ㅠ__ㅠ I’ve done all I can promoting the contest via Facebook and Twitter and also through MY-Hottest friends that I know. But still, no response. Sad.

A fellow reader gave her insights to me as to why this happened. She told me that maybe it’s because I only restricted to ONE song,“Tired of Waiting” (기다리다 지친아). And that Taec’s part,the rap, is almost IMPOSSIBLE to sing. Hehe. My bad. I should’ve told those who wanted to enter the contest that they can just omit the part. 🙂 But the most important reason why I chose this song is because it’s my favorite 2PM song. ♥

Just look at this boy (he’s the one who made me love “Heartbeat”). During Nickhun’s English part, he PURPOSELY ‘sleeps’ on his desk [01:50-01:58]. HAHAHAHAHA. A good way to escape singing in English,boy! 🙂 So, you can just omit Tae’s part and move on with the next part in “Tired of Waiting” (기다리다 지친아). I hope I made this clear.

But, don’t misunderstand! I only need you to send me an .mp3 file, NOT A VIDEO! Something like this. Haha. I record it and paste it in my Tumblr account. I only sang a bit, but, you get the picture now, right? (excuse the voice! I’m soooo not a singer-material!)

And one more thing, I have just found out that Hanmail only gives 100MB (wth?!!) space for email. So, I’d appreciate if those who are interested to email the entry to my Naver email instead. Here’s the details:

  1. Record your song.
  2. Save it and send as attachment to my email (fizzyhasan.at.naver.dot.com)
  3. Please use “[2PM SING-A-LONG]” as your email subject.
  4. Kindly include your name,home/office address and twitter id (if any) in the email.

So the contest ends this coming Sunday. I won’t furlong it any further because that’s lame. If there’s only ONE entry, then, he/she automatically wins and own this 2PM’s Calendar and file:

p/s: you can send more than one entry,btw.

[contest] 2PM Sing-A-Long (closing date extended)

좋은날 여러분들! (Good day, everybody!)

As promised, I’ll hold contests for all readers. This is to welcome new people to my blog and to spread the Hallyu Wave in Malaysia. For now, I have finalized the contest for 2PM. This contest is only open to Malaysians regardless you’re a 2PM die hard fan or not. Anyone can join this. 🙂 So, what do you have to do? Well, it’s quite simple actually.

Basically you are required to sing a song by 2PM. For this particular contest I have decided to use my favorite 2PM song from 01:59PM album; “Tired of Waiting” (기다리다 지친아). Well, all HOTTESTs out there might think that I’m outdated (can’t deny that! hehe), since 2PM already came out with their new mini album. But since I thought 기다리다 지친아 is easier to sing, so I made a decision to use it instead. 🙂

To help you, I have made a video in YouTube. Well, not much of a video actually, it’s only the lyrics for you to sing along. You can practice using that or any ways that you find easy. Once you have ‘conquered’ the song, here’s what you must do:

  1. Record your song.
  2. Save it and send as attachment to my email (fizhasan.at.hanmail.dot.net fizzyhasan.at.naver.dot.com)
  3. Please use “[2PM SING-A-LONG]” as your email subject.
  4. Kindly include your name,home/office address and twitter id (if any) in the email.

Since this is a contest you might wonder what is the prize I’m going to give to the winner. Well, there’ll be only ONE winner for this contest and the winner will walk out with two 2PM items. The first one is 2010/2011 Calendar and the other one is a 2PM document folder/file. The prizes are not that ‘bombastic’, but it is sincerely from yours truly. 🙂 So I hope that sincerity matters. Hehe. (Plus they were bought in Myeongdong,Seoul, if only that matters!! Haha..)

These are what you’re competing for:

The contest ends on Sunday,16th of May [Teacher’s Day]. So, have fun singing and good luck!

Due to the lack of participants, I’m gonna extend the closing date to one more week. Another reason is because I’m gonna be quite busy this week with school stuff so I might not be able to post the prize to the winner within this week. So the new closing date is on Sunday, 23rd of May 2010. I hope my Hanmail will be swarmed with emails for this contest. 🙂

VIP and HOTTEST alert!

안녕하세요!

As most of you might know, I was in Korea last March. I’m so sorry entries on my trip are not up yet. I’m trying hard to update it a.s.a.p. Please pray that ideas come to me so I can start telling you about my journey. Hehe. As for now, I’m trying to promote my blog, while giving away prizes. When I was in Myeongdong and Dongdaemun, I managed to grab a few idol-related stuff [mainly folders,calendars and postcards] which I know I won’t be keeping all for myself. So I thought of sharing with everyone in love with everything Kpop! [especially Big Bang and 2PM!!] 🙂

In my Twitter and Facebook updates, I did say that it’s going to be a mini quiz. Then again if it’s a quiz I have to come up with questions and answers about the idols and in order to do that, I have to have A LOT of common knowledge about Big Bang and 2PM. Frankly, I’m not that ‘well versed’ in that, I’m sure most of you (if not all) know a lot more about the idols, much better than yours truly. LOL

So, I’m thinking of asking all VIPs and HOTTESTs to come up with something related to Big Bang and 2PM. Here’s my idea (roughly what I have in mind):

  • Big Bang (VIP) – come up with a fan video using pictures of Big Bang. Preferably, the pictures should tell a story, but that’s not the main point. As long as I find it interesting, it’s okay. 🙂 I will limit the song choice to a few of Big Bang hits,maybe just 2 or 3.
  • 2PM (Hottest)  – sing a song. You’re required to sing a 2PM song,record it and send it to my email. A friend of mine have done this long ago (of course it was not 2PM song at that time! LOL) and surprisingly many sent in their entries,me included. Haha.

Alright, for now those are what I have in mind. I will tell you the details later. Please spread the words to your fellow VIPs and HOTTESTs friends. The contests will not be done simultaneously, I might start with Big Bang or vice versa. Feel free to give me your opinions. 😉

If you’re wondering what are the prizes, I’ll update about it once the date of the contest is final (i.e. when I’m not too occupied with school work). Till then, please leave a comment,okay?
