SuJu + SNSD

I just realized that Super Junior is the most played/scrobbled artist in my iTunes though its highly inaccurate since I started using iTunes on 31 May 2009. LOL.

I'm not really surprised by this actually since I know my tendency to replay anything that I LOVE over and over again til I got bored with it eventually.
All I can say, few songs survived during this "torture" of my overplaying. XD

If I like more than 4/5 songs in an album.
I know I love it and have the need to rave about it.
I'm so hard to please ^.^ since I'm more to a singles kinda guy.

The thing is,
I just want you all to know that I really love Super Junior's 3rd album.




Super Junior
Sorry, Sorry.


I don't understand Korean at all.
BUT that doesn't really stop me from enjoying this album.

How can you not LOVE Sorry, Sorry (the single), It's You, Why I Like You, Monster, Heartquake, Dead At Heart, Love U More and Shining Star.

My love for Super Junior is purely because of the music since I have no idea who is who except for the few recognizable one such as Siwon, Shindong, Sungmin and Kyuh yun. 4 out of 13, not bad la hor. =)

Another album that I find myself really having a great time listening to:


Girl's Generation
2nd Mini Album - Tell Me Your Wish.


Even though there is only 6 songs in this album,
I already love 4 of it so this is like an automatic move up to the category of great stuff!
Listening to them can be so uplifting sometimes.

Boyfriend, Etude, Girlfriend and Genie is just pure pop goodness.
I don't get the mini album concept, why do you want to release a mini album when you can release a full album? *hmmm*

Anyway,
I can identify most of the SNSD girls tho.
Pretty girls that know how to sing and dance?
I'm sold.
Their video can be so adorable at times.
Gee and Genie? <3
Fav Soshi = Tiffany and Yoona.

Supposedly,
TVXQ
is the most famous group in Korea and Japan right now,
but seriously, I don't get them at all...
The song is meh, the boys is okay.
What/Where is the appeal?
Can anyone tell me? I'm just curious. =)

Thank you for stopping by. They are seriously good even if you don't really understand Korean. =)

TVQX have their charms. There are a few songs worth listening to. Have you heard the new songs off the SM Town album?

ANYWAY.

This is my point when I say that you should never look at the lyrics when listening to music because frankly, the song can exist without them and you can like a song without the melody. A song isn't a song without the music.

Although because of the millions of K-pop songs and the TV shows with my favorite artists that I've seen with English subtitles, I can understand a teensy bit of Korean now. Can't speak, but I pretty much know what they're talking about. hahah.

I LOVE 'Why I Like You' and 'Angela' and the three songs from the repackaged album. hahah.

Not loving SNSD's 'Girlfriend' that much though - I find 'Boyfriend' a lot more substantial and Genie just plain genius.

Nikki: I'm not that up to date with the K pop scene. I mostly get my songs from my friends who is into the Korean scene cos her BF is a Korean. LOL.

Still don't get TVXQ.

Currently kinda addicted to 2NE1's I Don't Care, 2PM's Again & Again and the used to be nothing special song is growing one me - BEG's Abracadabra. (Kinda random, haha)

Seriously, by watching TV shows and K-pop songs only you can already understand basic Korean? WOW. Salute! Who says by watching TV and listening to music is not beneficial huh? =) I think I need 2 watch more TV too.

I learned how to speed read because of subtitles in Foreign/Korean dramas when I was in 2nd grade! Finished the last Harry Potter book in under 3 1/2 hours - random. hahah. If I want to learn it, I will but I CANNOT force myself to - it has to come naturally. Which is why I hate school. Random, again. hahah.

'I Don't Care' is BRILLIANT! That song made me adore Minzy/Minji - that girl can SING. 'Abracadabra' is very eurocrap-y but it's addictive - kinda like 'Sorry, Sorry'.

WAIT, we have the same favorite SNSD member? Tiffany has a gorgeous voice if only SM would stop processing the hell out of it.

rcLoy said...

Your randonness is effin funny. LOL.
My friend managed to finish Order of the Phoenix in less than 6hours. I'm like totally stunned by her obsession with Harry Potter. And now is your turn to stun me. HAHA.

Er, are you saying one of my favourite song "Sorry, Sorry" is eurocrap-y? *Unforgivable~~~~~~~~~~
LOL~ I still love that song. Its still bloody catchy. Can't stop myself from listening and humming to it. LOL. Power of SuJu.

Tiffany is so cute and hot at the same time. LOL. Her pipes are not bad. But i think most of the SNSD girls have good voice also what. Love them all. Can't wait for their new stuff. Seriously Korean artist need to make more MV for their songs even if its not a single. LOL.

Nikki said...

No, I mean that 'Sorry, Sorry' is so repetitive it's addictive - same goes with 'Abracadbra' but I choose 'Sorry, Sorry' over it any day.

Hyoyeon can dance but she can't sing. Fact.

rcLoy said...

Totally agree with your fact. You mean the dancing queen of the bunch right? LOL. Poor gal. Gettin bad rap from many people. Some even said that she's actually a man. LOL.
