Changmin's lead role in Paradise Ranch

After their continued success streak on Japan soil -starting with the Tokyo Dome concert, high sales of Stand by U,Oricon Charts etc - the boys are finally starting to branch out from their otherwise comfort zone of doing things together. First up was Yoochun and Jaejoong duo on their single Colors~Melody and Harmony and next to step up was U-Know, trying his luck in acting with his new drama "Heading to the Ground". And just recently, it seems that our magnae is starting to try out his luck too in acting when he was chosen as the lead role for the drama "Paradise Ranch".

More of that news below...

The member of popular group TVXQ, Choikang Changmin (21) was selected as leading role of a new drama “Paradise Ranch”.

A joint production of publisher Samhwa Networks and TVXQ’s agency SM Entertainment, “Paradise Ranch” has announced Changmin as one of the cast.

“Paradise Ranch”: script writer by Jang Hyeon-joo known from “The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince” and “Into The Sun” and co-writer Seo Hui-jung, is starting its shooting activities next month in Jejudo island.

From Samhwa Networks: “It’s a bright, cheerful story with beautiful background music to create a masterpiece melodrama. “Paradise Ranch” will start its local broadcast at the end of this year and go through Japan and also around Southeast Asia”.

And there's an ongoing rumor too that due to "solo" activities by the other members, it seems that Junsu would be doing his share too and would be launching a solo album. Hwaiting DBSK!

Frankly, after hearing all this, I did not feel the usual apprehension that accompanies these so-called "solo" activities. I think its hightime for them to expand their horizon and do other things besides singing. It would ensure longevity in the industry and would also enable them to train themselves aside from singing. I know that rumor of them "disbanding" would probably heighten with Changmin now on a lead role as well, but I guess, to each his own. I would rather not think of disbandment issues cause I'm a close-minded person when it comes to them and I stick to the image of them together on stage. LOL

Anyways, hwaiting to everyone for their endeavors especially to my Minnie. Surprised me bigtime, baby. *grins

I thought i was running after something carried over from my dreams,
Yet i'm stumbling into people on this narrow, winding road.

It's not like i want to go back to the way things were back then,
I'm just searching for the sky i've lost.
I hope you understand.
Stop making that sad face as though you were a victim.

Sins don't end with tears,
You have to carry the pain forever.
who am i waiting for, in this maze of emotions
with no way out in sight?

I want to purge myself more simply,
As if writing in a blank notebook
What is it I want to escape from?
... is it reality?

"What am i living for?"
In the middle of the night, I could almost forget.
I can't put up with playing it safe.
... I've got nowhere to go home to.
There's still so much in life to remove this feeling.
(I'm on the way)
I even welcome this pain
for the things i miss

I have to apologize for this. Ah, I'm sorry.
I can't say it well. I'm just causing worry.

Everything that I embraced that day. Everything that I will embrace tomorrow
I will not arrange them in any order.
I hope you understand. I closed my eyes
but I could still see things I do not want to see.

Unnecessary rumors that I hear for the first time, so what?
"Face it and you will be friends"
Don't tell lies like these.
My heart being agitated from deep inside,
a burning sensation runs through my body.
Actually I'm expecting something
from this thing called "reality".

It makes me want to scream that we're alive
For things to come true. Can you hear me?
I can't put up with playing it safe.
... I've got nowhere to go home to.
I'm always grateful for kindness
That's why i want to grow stronger,
(I'm on the way)
...to march on.
I welcome friends and foes.

How do I open the next door? I'm thinking.
I can't take back this story that has begun.
Open your eyes.
Open your eyes.

I still have too long a life ahead
to get rid of these feelings, right?
I want to try doing over
the things I've left undone
Shall we go AGAIN?

It makes me want to scream that we're alive
For things to come true. Can you hear me?
I can't put up with playing it safe.
... I've got nowhere to go home to.
I'm always grateful for kindness
That's why I want to grow stronger,
(I'm on the way)
I even welcome this pain
for the things i miss



夢の続き 追いかけていたはずなのに
曲がりくねった 細い道 人に躓く

あの頃にみたいにって 戻りたいわけじゃないの なくしてきた空を
分かってくれます様に 犠牲になった様な 悲しい顔は

罪の最後は涙じゃないよ ずっと苦しく背負ってくんだ
白いノートに綴った様に もっと素直に吐き出したいよ

忘れちゃいそうな 夜の真ん中
まだ人生長いでしょ 懐かしくなる

謝らなくちゃいけないよね ああ ごめんね
うまく言えなくて 心配かけたままだったね

あの日抱えた全部 明日抱える全部
分かってくれます様に そっと目を閉じたんだ

いらない噂にちょっと 初めて聞く発言どっち
深いハートが苛立つ様に 体ん中燃えているんだ

叫びたくなるよ 聞こえていますか
だから強くなりたい 進む為に

どうやって次のドア開けるんだっけ 考えてる
目を覚ませ 目を覚ませ


叫びたくなるよ 聞こえていますか
だから強くなりたい 懐かしくなる

arashi with everything

this single was released on july 1st and easily made its way to number 1 in the oricon charts. i am a little biased towards tohoshinki so i was all out on their single "stand by u" instead which ranked 2nd. i have never listened to this arashi song since it broke my tohoshinki expectation.

to cut the story short, i listened to it today and now i know why it ranked 1st. it is a pretty good song. it is catchy and fun.. after listening to it, you somehow feel good. good job... woot woo... this is only the 2nd song after "truth" from arashi that i have truly appreciated. and i have just listened to it for the 3rd time in a row.




Toori ame ga chikazuku

Modoru koto no dekinai tabi no tochuu de

Kono yuudachi no naka de hitori
Kurikaeri tachidomaru koto mo arukedo

Ame agari no mado kara

the passing rain draws closer, the smell of the city is bittersweet
the shadows left on the pavement seemed different than usual
as if the everchanging sky was refelcting my wavering heart
the world continues turning at a fast pace

the signal that changes from red to green
in the midst of a journey of no return
I want to go forward believing in tomorrow
alone in this evening shower
there may be times when I stop and look back
but I won't be afraid of anything

the evening sunflowers that I can see from the window after the rain
are dyed by the sunset and waiting for the sunrise
sometimes it seems like I'll lose sight of what's important
but I walk on holding the feelings I won't let go

dyed with a brilliant blue
the future sketched out endless dreams
moistening my dry heart
in the midst of this limited time
I strongly carved the emotions into my heart
the sun will rise again

even knowing what I would see
when I cross this long hill
I don't want to have regrets
I'll keep going and shine on tomorrow like the sun

the signal that changes from red to green
in the midst of a journey of no return
I want to go forward believing in tomorrow

run run, reach out your hands to your dreams
shout shout, as long as your voice goes on
in the way that your heart feels




変わり続ける空は ゆるれ心を移すよに


雨上がりの窓から 見える夕暮れのひまわり
夕焼けに染められて 朝日を待ち続けているんだ


乾いた心 潤して

この長い坂を 超える時 その先に何が見えたとしても
後悔はしたくない 光とほし続け明日を照らして


走れ走れ 夢に手を伸ばすのさ
叫べ叫べ これも続くたびに

Thank god for the pretty boy power blog (spazzes@wordpress)!!!

I found some fancams from the site... so I decided to embed some those that I liked! kikikiki (though some of them are  audio versions only :D). There were a lot more videos posted in spazzes, so you can click on this link to see the other videos :D.


Very very cute! From what I read in the Suju thread in soompi, everyone performed except for Yesung, Shindong and Kangin... ooh so cute! Babo! ahahaha if anyone sees a better version please tell me! kikikiki

Twins (Full Version)

I know this is their first single.. but I'm not much of a fan of this song.. ehehe I prefer Miracle over this... but watching this video, and seeing the boys new looks make me remember their debut video!

Ryeowook  Solo - Insomnia (Audio only)

He sang the English version! wohoo! Craig David version! It was nice hearing Wookie's version... I just wish it wasn't just the audio... there was a part when the audience was screaming loudly.. I'm a bit curious what happened.. kikikiki.. I'm sure innocent will love this!

Kyuhyun Singing  with Suju Drama

In some versions of the video, it's labelled as Carnival... but I'm not sure.. coz when I hear the song it reminds me of a very old song.. Puff the Magic Dragon... but I'm not sure because I can't hear Kyu's voice over the fan's crazy screams!

Sorry Sorry

White! that's the color of the suits they were wearing.. and as usual they look so handsome.. so white so cute! ahh... I wish I was there!

Siwon Solo - Who Am I? (Audio only)

It's just the audio version... but I had to include this post! :D Siwon! ohh... this song is a Christian Song... I loved the way he sang it and I love the fact that he chose this song to sing! :D Siwon-shi... :D Meg would love this!

Sorry Sorry version @ Super Show II

Waaaa.. I found this on one of the youtube channels that I subscribe to! I’m going crazy!!

Though this is just the audio version of the song.. but it’s pretty clear! ahahaha.. According to the one who posted the video, this is one of the clearest versions of the song.. This was of course recorded during the first day of the concert!

There are 2 versions of Sorry Sorry during the concert.. one R and B version and another Remix version!

R&B Version

Remix Version

Hearing the versions… I wanted to disapparate and apparate in the concert! Wae??? Doushite??? But one Korean friend told me it’s better to see the video (DVD) than the real concert because sometimes girls go gaga when they watch the concert. But I think the feeling of being in the concert and seeing them would be different ^-^ kikikiki.

I’m still searching for fancams from the concert so fancams to follow in another post!

**credits Sup3rJunior@youtube + kiza


Sorry Sorry Japanese Version

It's the Super Show weekend! This is the time when I really want to go to Korea! ahahaha :D

And since it's Super Show weekend, I need to post Super Junior stuff in the blog --- not need, I must! kikikiki...

Anyway I won't be blabbering too much in this post.. I think the title says it all...

My Shanghai Souvenirs

I just came back from Shanghai last Saturday and among the things I made sure to get from the city were MAGAZINES featuring the OBJECTS of my addiction. I'm talking about the Korean, Japanese and Taiwanese stars, people! LOL

I will be giving some of the mags to my dear friend tiny น่ารัก. Of course! In the meantime, I have scanned some of the photos/pages of the said magazine. And for the life of me, I have no idea what the article says because I cannot read Chinese! I don't even know what the magazine titles are! Hahaha...

For the first magazine, the cover features five of the members of Super Junior. The back cover shows photos of SS501.

2ne1 with MV for "i don't care" and debut in music bank 20090710

good timing. i checked on youtube and to my surprise, an MV was out... a full write up was made by shiira on this song days before. visit it in here -> 2NE1(투애니원) with its 1st Mini Album. lyrics can also be found in there.

now let's talk on the video. it was pretty cool. the girls get to display some dramatics. some angst but not too much though. but i honestly don't know how they'll gonna perform it live. there is quite a minimal amount of dancing involved but there is drama instead... hmmm. looking forward. go 2ne1!!!

note: i was seriously wondering earlier but to my surprise they have just performed it live.

enjoy the video!!!

now here is the live performance in music bank. when i was just wondering how the live performance might look earlier, it was right away granted. pretty cute performance but there are still room for improvements. i know they will improve.

oh no, this is the third edit for this blog entry. maybe i should search more closely. i have found the other song they performed for their debut. the song was "pretty boy". performance was superb. but the boys were not pretty. wahihihi... go dara...
