Today I should be refraining myself from the Internet. But it is indeed a SCARY thing, I can’t live a day without it. LOL. I managed to stay away from my #1 distraction [read: T-W-I-T-T-E-R!!] for two days. I’m still on Facebook and Tumblr though because I think I won’t be as distracted as I am on Twitter. But I guessed wrong. Both are equally VERY distracting! ㅋㅋㅋ
Oh, back to the main story, today I found out about an awesome site ESPECIALLY for Malaysian KPoppers. I don’t know if I’m the belated one or not (given that they already have almost 60,000 ‘likes’ in their Facebook page), but I’m sharing it anyway. Malaysian KPoppers behold..! I present you…
A little info about maaduu : maaduu is a stylised representation of “madu” which means “honey” – we hope viewers will be attracted “like bees to honey” and enjoymaaduu continually. While maaduu is 100% free, content owners, actors and actresses need to be paid. So to support them in their efforts to produce premium content, maaduu is ad supported. Viewers can continue enjoying the best dramas for free while content owners continue to get paid. (awesome,right?!) And oh, they have KBS’ Music Bank too!
I’m watching maaduu on my Celcom broadband now and no buffering. So what are you waiting for, KPoppers? Go and watch maaduu now.
people who are not familiar with korean entertainment scene might ‘die of heart attack’ if i tell them the number of members in this famous korean boy band. lol. get this; there are THIRTEEN members altogether. 13, i tell you! rotfl. i too, was shocked when i knew about this, i found it rather absurd to have that many people performing on the stage together. but, to my own surprise too, i’m loving them more each day. all 13 of them. for further read: click here. yup, wikipedia has abundant info on them. so, let’s not be redundant now, shall we? 🙂
Super Junior (SuJu) had just come out with their 3rd album, ‘Sorry,Sorry,Sorry’ which is currently on repeat mode in my playlist. i was sceptical at first, thinking it’s not going to be good, which was exactly what i thought the first time i heard the song. but after their ‘comeback stage’ on KBS’ music bank, i took back my words. and their performance..? wow. yup, that’s what they did. they ‘wow’ed me alright. more than 10 people performing together, singing and dancing, well…nobody can outdone SuJu i guess.
prior to their latest album, due to the many members of the group, their management company, SM Entertainment had divided them into subgroups [well, this is only possible in south korea, i guess] namely Super Junior KRY, Super Junior T(rot), Super Junior M(andarin) and Super Junior H(appy). i was only familiar with SuJu H, because of their catchy single ‘Cooking, Cooking’.
but the one thing that made me love this group even more is because of the movie “Attack On the Pin-Up Boys“.. lol. just thinking about the movie, i got excited. the storyline is so absurd, but funny at the same time. and given all those cute faces in one movie [minus Eeteuk and Kyuhyun], this light movie is one that you should see if you’re looking for a good laugh [but in a disgusting way, mind you]. rotfl.
if someone were to ask me which group member is my favourite, i really can’t name only one. i love heechul, for his cuteness,sometimes for his ‘bad boy’ image and the fact that he’s so funny. i like shindong, because of his awesome dance moves [despite the fact that he’s the chubbiest in the group] and he’s also funny. kang-in for his voice, hangeng for his cute korean accent [he’s the only Chinese member], donghae for his ‘Yul-goon’-like face [read:Goong’s Prince Yul] and others for various reasons.
in 2008, SuJu came to Genting Highlands, Malaysia to receive their MTV Awards for Favorite Korean Artist. hehe, i liked all nominations for that category; Big Bang, Wonder Girls, SNSD. but was satisfied SuJu won nonetheless.
this is wheesung’s cover version of craig david’s insomnia, which in my opinion done brilliantly. then again as a ‘korean freak’ like me, anything korean will always please my ears. however you really have to watch him [wheesung] performs this song, or watch his music video. he left me smiling, watching how cool he looks. *wink*
i have successfully downloaded the mv. and loving it everytime i watch him dance to the music. omonaaaa..now he’s making me imsomniac!
i must say, upon watching Fly To The Sky’s performance on KBS’ Music Bank [can’t remember which episode], i fell in love with Hwanhee on.the.spot. i have to admit, i’m really digging this ‘bad boy’ image, you know. but, who doesn’t, right? just look at Big Bang’s T.O.P. for instance. aigooo~~ mysteriously intriguing! anyway, back to Hwanhee, his voice is so darn husky and sexy i could die if someone were to sing to me like that. oh, need i say more about the dance moves? omona..he’s killing me!! [btw, brian’s not bad too. :)]
it’s sad to know that they are splitting up after this album. in fact they have performed [or will be performing] their last stage act as a duo, Fly To The Sky. their voices really complement each other, and i regret that i only realize their ‘existence’ after “Recollection” [their album before Decennium]. Hwanhee will pursue solo career and Brian’s gonna be an actor.
i won’t be posting his photos here, because seriously, there’s none that shows his ‘bad boy’-ness among all the photos i found in google or msn. you really have to watch their performance, singing Restriction, in order to understand what i’m talking about.
anyway, this is my utmost favourite song of their last album, Decennium. Fly To The Sky’s Restriction.
