A quiz, a super idol & an office lady’s pet

22 05 2010

Firstly, a random A.N.JELL quiz I accidentally found myself doing >>>

(click HERE & you too can enjoy some completely pointless amusement for yourself!)

^^Fun times ^U^. Now, yea-ah, news officially confirmed that Jang Geun Suk shi will take on the lead role of the Korean adaption of Kimi wa Petto i.e. You Are My Pet (actually, this was solidified a good couple of months ago but I’m talking about it now because I just wanted to post my results of the A.N.JELL quiz I did lol)

The role was previously intended for everybody’s dearest Ji Hoo sunbae, aka SS501 leader, Kim Hyun Joong, but somewhere, somehow, he pulled out. Sounding kinda too familiar of a situation?

Stretch your memory back to the whole experiment-gone-wrong that was Boys Over Flowers (right, right, it wasn’t that bad. I mean, yes, I did enjoy it… but remember, that does not equate it to quality.) The role of the bad perm dude was originally marked for Jang Geun Suk but…he didn’t want it! He wanted to play the role of the fragile acoustic guitarist instead! However, the producers were adamant in wanting Hyun Joong to BE Yoon Ji Hoo (did work out pretty well I must say.) So the guy JGS basically said, screw you guys, I’m off to be a humungous pop star idol (well, this is how my mind is seeing it ^^;;)

And so we have, You’re Beautiful ! It’s only occurring to me now that I never really did a review on the series. In some strange way, I feel like I still have all this fluffy-duffy feel-goodness from the series fermenting inside of me, wanting to be released into spazzmatic words. I think it just hurts that I never really got to express how much Jang Geun Suk killed it as Hwang Tae Kyung– & I mean KILL. His pout, his skinny pants & his eyeliner make-up were far beyond anything we’ve ever seen in the pop idol world xDD


Anyways, is there a point to this post? Well… I want to say I am a bit apprehensive on the idea of a You Are My Pet movie. For starters, I didn’t like the whole concept of the manga as it is- the older woman adopting a younger man as a pet situation does not make me wanna be there, esp when the boy actually acts like a darn dawg. Even so, I did coerce myself through the torturous 10episodes of the Japanese live-action dorama (no prizes for guessing why -_-)

I much prefer seeing JunJun act like a man. Quite honestly, I hated the Koyuki+Jun-kun combo as well (did you see the chemistry btwn them? No?????? What do you mean??? Oh yeah, that’s right, it wasn’t there!!) And, I love him, but my favourite Arashi boy really looked like he could’ve done w/ a VIP voucher to Kame’s Eyebrow Grooming Parlour ^^;;

But alas, w/ Jang Geun Suk being a better actor, perhaps he will be able to turn my (dis)liking for the story around. For everybody’s sake, I hope he can pull it off (HERE is a wallpaper I made of him btw ^_^)

In the meanwhile, shamelessly w/ all that said, I still wouldn’t mind my own pet Momo.


Then again, I’m not good w/ pets ><

Lesson 101: How To Form A Successful Pop Band!

25 02 2010

Well, more like “What kinda guys to bunch together in a drama series to make fangirls go all ga-ga.”

As I mentioned in my last post, these days I am oh-my-fricks besotted w/ the You’re Beautiful clan. The series was a blatantly obvious pre-calculated sucker-of-a-trap but I still fell for it. But you can’t blame me. I can totally explain. You too could set the same trap!

Basically, when total fangirl enslaught is the mission, search high & low & for your life to recruit these types of peeps (fangirls unite, stand in line & take your pick…):


#1 The Uber Cool Leader Hwang Tae Kyung
This guy epitomises what cool is. He may not necessarily be the most classically good-looking guy but he has a certain edge that draws your eyes to him- & for some freaking reason, you can not look away (・_・;) The Uber Cool Leader is usually strong & seemingly cold on the facade, comes complete w/ a fiery temper, but has a child-like (but not childish) innocence. Deep down he is a softie whose heart is waiting for his one & only special girl to come along & rescue him (more often than not from a terribly, terrible traumatic past ><;;) Once he (finally) realises that he had actually fallen in love w/ her long before they had even met, he is forever there to protect her. And in the sweetest, cutesiest ways ever.
Other examples I liked: Domyouji Tsukasa, Dao Ming Si, Sano Izumi, Prince Lee Shin, Sun Woo Hwan, Lee Young Jae, Shan Jun Hao, Ji Cun Xi, Jung Jae Min, Cha Moo Hyuk
His love slogan: Why would I ever give up? We are meant to be together.
What I want to say to him: Wow, what a torrential diva! But alas, I can’t get past your utterly endearing cuteness. And your undying courage to fight for your love. Actually, you seem like you would be alot of fun to be around. I want you to hug me xDD


#2 The Guardian Angel Kang Shin Woo
Gaaaaawd how many of these have I fallen for in my life ( ̄□ ̄;) The Guardian Angel is predominantly there to safeguard the girl until the main guy realises what the bjesus is going on. Usually more introverted & laidback in character, usually artistic in some form or another, usually insanely good-looking, usually the Prince Charming who girls want to swoop them up onto his damn horse & gallop away on a pretty flower-cladded meadow into the sunset (or maybe a rainbow? Or a meteor shower!) He wipes away the girl’s tears when she is sad, he wipes away her sweat when she is tired, he serenades her w/ the [insert appropriate romantic musical instrument here], he kisses her on the forehead when she is asleep (probably because she has a fever from working herself unconscious,) really, he would give his life for her… but seriously, all for whaaaaaat I ask ><” (!) *bangs head against the wall*
Other examples I liked: Hanazawa Rui, Hua Ze Lei, Yoon Ji Hoo, Han Tae Suhk, Zhong Xiao Gang, Park Jun Se, Xu Zi Qian
His love slogan: Loving someone doesn’t mean I have to be w/ them. Even if my heart is bleeding, as long as she is happy, I will be happy for her.
What I want to say to him: Oh my Guardian Angel, why is it that you never get the girl? Is it because you are suffering from “nice guys always finish last” syndrome? Is it because you can be just so darn boring on dates? Or is it because you are just too much of a sissy to fight for your love? Why the eff can’t you just say & do what your heart feels? Heck, in a way you know what, I think you deserve to not get the girl. But still, oh why, oh why, oh why do I love you?


#3 The Good Time Pacifist Kang On Yu (Jeremy)
This guy is usually upbeat, athletic & speaks to the younger generation because of his street smart coolness. Totally up to trend. He tends also to be the one who glues the group together, not really w/ his direct leadership per se, but it’s because he values friendship & loyalty above anything else.  At times he can be the comedic relief. May also at some stage harbour feelings towards the main girl & may have a minor “why can’t I have her” moment but soon enough realises where everyone stands & w/o much ado, steps aside for the sake of everything. Will be there to make her laugh & console her when both the other guys are just being morons. Sometimes, this guy may be the second male lead but only in the absence of the Guardian Angel.
Other examples I liked: Nakatsu Shuichi, Kusano Akira, Song Woo Bin, Jin Yuan Feng
His love slogan: Everyone in life has their own role to play. Our friendship means the world to me so don’t worry, I would never want to play another role to change this.
What I want to say to him: Let’s just play & eat all day together already!


And there it is. Fail proof. The only reason why you would fail is because of a lousy heroine (which Park Shin Hye was not! xD)

BTW, it is also essential that they look good together as a unit. So good that it’s as if w/o any one of them, the fandom universe would implode.

Ooh, one last pic (couldn’t help myself…):

[^^Can you see what I see?]

I wish A.N.JELL were a real band so I could totally fangirl spazz over them

21 02 2010

Well, I’ma totally spazzing it out as it is anyways.

I’ve been randomly chanting out various A.N.JELL anthems at work (♪♩♫ I will promise you du nune neoman damgo salagalgg ♫♪♫ ^^;;) (!!), which, considering 99.99999999% of my colleagues are white people, can make the situation a little awkward.

But meh. What the heck. I will confess I will be ordering my Hwang Tae Kyung chibi phone charm in as I complete processing this entry xDD

I also made some wallpapers using the images from their High Cut photoshoot in which I think they all look as sophisticated as they are cool. Uber cool.

You're Beautiful,A.N.JELL,Jang Geun Suk,Park Shin Hye,Lee Hong Ki,Jung Yong Hwa You're Beautiful,A.N.JELL,Jang Geun Suk,Park Shin Hye,Lee Hong Ki,Jung Yong Hwa You're Beautiful,A.N.JELL,Jang Geun Suk,Park Shin Hye,Lee Hong Ki,Jung Yong Hwa
(friendly reminder, pls do not hotlink & kindly credit if re-sharing, thankyou :])

So if you haven’t hopped on the A.N.JELL bandwagon yet in You’re Beautiful, then get on it! The series is everything a Hana Yori Dango cross Hana Kimi cross KPop obsesser would love. That I am & that I did.

Will spazz more about them in a few days.


P.S. I do have new Arashi, Mika Nakashima & Nodame Cantabile magazine images to share but my scanner carked it. Shopping around for a new one but did you know scanners aren’t cheap these days??
