I'm free from my exams! For now. Sorry for not updating the past few days! Anywayyyyy, there's a Beastly treat for you guys.

I love how Beast always releases practice videos for their songs and this time, it's no different. We get to see the dance moves for both 'Fact & Fiction' and not only that, there's also a three-step dance lesson for their 'penguin move' near the end of the video.

This week there are clips from Big Bang's 'Love and Hope' concert tour. Damn, Big Bang concerts are always so energetic. I really wish I can go for one :( They also showed GD minor foot injury. He reassures us that it's nothing big but I hope he gets some rest :/
There's also 2NE1's FIRST 'Lonely' live session recording in the studio. They sound AMAZINGGGGG

Check it out for yourselves! :D

Hey guys!

Do you remember Big Bang's Love Song music video that I posted up not too long ago? I sure do! I loved the elegance that was exuded from the simplicity of the video. (Well, not that simple since they had a hard time filming it). Ahahah. But anyway, I am here today to present you with the MAKING FILM of Big Bang's 'Love Song' MV! *claps*

It's actually quite painful to watch the boys go through the filming since there was a lot of smoke & dust, thus making it hard for them to breathe. I'm sure it wasn't just them. The whole crew member must have suffered a lot in order to produce such great quality. The weather must've been chilly too since they were dressed in thick jackets during intervals of their shoot. I really respect their dedication towards their work. Not once did I see them complaining about the arduous work they go through but instead, we get to see them joking around and laughing about while shooting for the music video. The thing that surprised me most was how fast they could run! ahahaha. Just after getting the director's "CUT!", they ran away like little kids. Super adorable! I'm glad to be able to see how they transition in and out of the video during their solo parts too. It looked really smooth and cool in the full music video but in reality, they had to run around burning objects and wait to be cued for their parts. All in all, it's definitely one music video that we, VIPS will watch over and over again until we get bored of looking at them. Which is erm, never. AHAHHAA!

요섭 & 가윤 (Yoseob & Gayoon)- WHAT I WANT TO DO IF I HAVE A LOVER (ENG SUBBED)

Hey, guys!

I recently stumbled across this video which I found super cute and sweet. It's a cover of the song 'What I want to do if I have a lover' by Yoseob and Gayoon. The song was originally sung by G.NA. 

I love how playful Yoseob is! Isn't he just adorable? :D

Hey peeps!

Just wanted to share another wonderful WONGFUPRODUCTIONS video with you guys :)
It's seriously awesome. Ahaha. Since most of us are stereotypes, this video applies to all of us :p (Me, included) I love how all youtubers are CRAZY and FUNNY. (In a great way, of course)
Teeheee! Enjoy the video! :D

*Punch, punch, KICKKKKK!*

Wassup everyone?

After the release of their music video, 'Fiction', Beast is back with their first comeback on M! Countdown. Not only did they perform their title track, 'Fiction' but they also performed 'Rainy Days' as well. I would just like to say that I'm very proud of them and I think they did a GREAT live especially for 'Fiction'. I totally fell in love with it. They way they sang and expressed the lyrics was so sorrowful yet fantastic. If only all of you felt the same pain I feel when I hear them singing this song. It just tugs at my heartstrings. ahaha.

Without further ado, I give you BEAST! (In High Definition!)

Say NO to Cruelty Against Animals!!

Hey everyone!

I'm sure most of us would have at some point had a pet or know someone who has a pet. Even if you don't, there must be a moment when you saw a particular dog/cat/bird/squirrel/monkey/rabbit, etc and thought it's just adorable! Others would simply agree that having a pet is just like having your best friend around - without the talking.

Well, as much as we humans have rights, ANIMALS HAVE RIGHTS TOO! But they can't speak up for themselves so it's our job to help protect them.

Please sign the online petition addressing animal abuse in Malaysia. The organizers are trying to get 50,000 signatures by the end of 2011 and will send it to the Prime Minister of Malaysia. On the website, you will find the latest case of animal cruelty caught on video. Be part of the people to put an end to such acts.


FBI research indicates that animal abusers are 5 times more likely to be violent in society. When they are not punished, they continue their abuse on children, women and society at large. Consequently, Governments all over the world have begun to take animal cruelty seriously by imposing punitive cruelty penalties and have encouraged Responsible Pet Ownership. 

Thank you for your time!!!

*Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttssss!* :)




I love watching all YG artistes. They're so hardworking and serious when it comes to working. Not only do they take part in the whole planning/rehearsing process but also actively give their own opinions on how they want things to be carried out for the concert. This is what makes YG artistes so different and special from the rest. They have their own flavor and attitude in everything that they do :)

*Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttssss!* :)

What's up, guys?
Beast is back with their latest music video, Fiction. 

The music video features dramatic scenes that intertwine with cuts of choreography. Aligning with the song’s heartbreaking lyrics, the video sees rapper Junhyung unwilling to accept that the woman he loves (Park Bo Young) has left him. He begins to write a fictional story in his head to continue his romance with her, as 
exemplified by the scenes weaving in and out of his imagination, contrasting starkly with his reality.

Source: allkpop

The first time I watched the music video without English subtitles, I was really confused. I mean, through the title of the song, you could understand that everything that was in Junhyung's mind (the happy couple scenes) was just a fiction. However, after reading the subtitles and understanding what the lyrics was trying to convey,  I felt the pain and sadness that I was meant to feel from the song. Like I said in a previous post, people have different ways in coping with sadness and sometimes we just refuse to believe the truth. We live in a bubble of lies made solely by our imagination so that we don't get hurt and maybe, just maybe we can get through this phase of life. I know the lyrics and music video might not be so deep in translation but that's how I feel it related to life. Sometimes, we just gotta move on.

Anywayyy, depressing stories aside, I'm actually getting really addicted to the song. I love how the background music is very beastly-fied. It suits them very well and Junhyung's raps never fail to captivate me. I think the boys did a great job trying to convey the meaning of the lyrics and portray the hurt that they're going through in order to make the music video look realistic. All in all, I'm sure that Beast will have a great comeback this time around! I will be watching closely in support of them, just like how I've always done :)

Heavenly vocals, cute charms, beautiful jawline, funny, playful and hardworking at the same time. Who am I talking about? 

Our baby dolphin, of course! On May 14th, Kim Junsu or more widely known as Xiah Junsu performed a cover of Secret Garden's OST 'That Man' at his home in Paju in celebration of parent's day. I was actually supposed to blog about Secret Garden since the drama was EXTRAORDINARY and I wanted to share the details with you guys but I guess I'll have to do it another time. Our main focus for today is on Junsu and Junsu only :) 

He sang this song at the bar in the basement JUST by using a karaoke machine. Have you ever thought that a karaoke live could sound so good? I sure never did. Of course the quality of the clip is not of those released by music company labels but MY GOD, CAN THIS BOY SING! Brilliantly, too. Okay, I shall not elaborate further and just let you readers be the judge for yourselves. Without further ado, I present you with Kim Junsu :)

TITLE: 그남자 

한 남자가 그대를 사랑합니다
그 남자는 열심히 사랑합니다
매일 그림자처럼 그대를 따라 다니며
그 남자는 웃으며 울고 있어요
얼마나 얼마나 더 너를
이렇게 바라만 보며 혼자
이 바람같은 사랑 이 거지같은 사랑
계속해야 니가 나를 사랑하겠니
조금만 가까이 와 조금만
한 발 다가가면 두 발 도망가는
널 사랑하는 날 지금도 옆에 있어
그 남잔 웁니다
그 남자는 성격이 소심합니다
그래서 웃는 법을 배워봅니다
친한 친구에게도 못하는 얘기가 많은
그 남자의 마음은 상처 투성이
그래서 그 남자는 그댈 널 사랑했대요 똑같아서
또 하나 같은 바보 또 하나 같은 바보
한번 나를 안아주고 가면 안되요
난 사랑받고 싶어 그대여
매일 속으로만 가슴 속으로만
소리를 지르며 그 남자는
오늘도 그 옆에 있데요
그 남자가 나라는 건 아나요
알면서도 이러는 건 아니죠
모를거야 그댄 바보니까
얼마나 얼마나 더 너를
이렇게 바라만 보며 혼자
이 바보같은 사랑 이 거지같은 사랑
계속해야 니가 나를 사랑하겠니
조금만 가까이 와 조금만
한 발 다가가면 두 발 도망가는
널 사랑하는 날 지금도 옆에 있어
그 남잔 웁니다

One man loves you
That man loves you with all his heart
Everyday like a shadow he follows you around
When that man smiles he is crying on the inside

How much longer
Do I have to just look at you alone
This love like the wind
This worthless love
If I keep trying will it make you fall in love with me
Come a little bit closer
Just a little bit
I'm the one who loves you
Right now by your side
That man is crying

That man is very shy
So he learned how to laugh
There is so much that can't be said even amongst close friends
That man's heart is full of scars

So that man
Loved you because you were the same
Just another fool
Just another fool
Is it wrong to ask you to hold me once before you leave?
I want to be loved..its true
Every day inside...Inside his heart...He shouted and
That man is by your side again today

Do you know that I'm that man?
You wouldn't act this way if you knew
You wouldn't know because you're a fool

How much longer
Do I have to look at you like this alone?
This stupid love
This worthless love
If I keep trying will it make you fall in love with me
come a little bit closer
Just a little bit
If I take one step forward you take two steps back
I'm the one who loves you
Right now by your side
That man is crying

The lyrics are totally heartbreaking and considering the fact that Junsu hasn't watched Secret Garden, I'm really amazed at how well he expressed the meaning of the lyrics in his own way. Don't get me wrong, I love Hyun Bin's version of the song since he was the lead character and when you hear him singing (although it might not be the greatest vocals), you can feel the love and pain he experienced in the drama from his voice. After all, he was the one who portrayed the character of Kim Joowon and did a marvelous job at it, if I may add. However, Junsu's version is more concentrated on the sincerity and portraying of emotions through his beautiful voice. I know I might not make too much sense right now to people who hasn't watched the drama but no worries, I will blogging about it...soon enough. Secret Garden is truly the BEST K-drama I have ever watched so to those of you who are free and are curious as to what I'm babbling about, please do check out the drama for yourself :)

Until then, toodles!

Travel Log - International Street Market, Aberdeen

Hello Hello!

By now, I'm sure you would know that I'm in Scotland to finish off my studies. Since you would also know that I'm the phantom blogger of this blog, I have decided to create a new section called the 'Travel Log' to document my travels or if I come across any interesting places/events. Just a little push to blog more. SJ was delighted to hear about this although she remains HIGHLY SKEPTICAL.

So here goes, my FIRST post in Travel Log.

I accidentally stumbled across the International Street Market in Union Terrace, Aberdeen last weekend. It's meant to be a bazaar with stalls from all around Europe selling food, crafts and gardening supplies. They have it once every two months, on the first weekend. So the next one would be during the first weekend of July.

My friend and I tried some of the food and it was really refreshing to be trying food from different countries, all in one spot. Here are some pictures :

 Mini Pancakes from Netherlands, with Nutella topping. A chocolate lover's must-try!

                       We tried Churros, a Spanish snack. The dough is fried and then sprinkled with sugar. Yummy..

Waiting for the Roast Hog while holding on to the Churros

 Didn't have any of it but it's advertised as an alternative to the usual meat ..

German Salami!

Till the next time!

I am proud to present you guys with YG ON AIR'S Episode 2 and 3 with ENGLISH SUBTITLES! I know some of you must have had a hard time looking for it but no worries, it's all here! I swear Papa YG is one of the smartest people in the Korean music industry for coming up with the idea of YG ON AIR. It gives fans an insight on Big Bang and 2NE1's current activities. Not only that, we will be hearing a totally new and different version of Park Bom's Don't Cry as well as 2ne1's Lonely every week on YG ON AIR. After the lovely rendition of Park Bom's acoustic Don't Cry, this week YG released her band version. Besides that, we also get to see the Big Bang boy's 'LOVE & HOPE' Japan Concert Tour in Episode 3! It's great to see them working so hard while fooling around. You can definitely feel their sincere hearts and strong love towards what they do. That's not an easy thing to spot in today's Korean Music Entertainment. Honestly.

Anywayyyyyyyy, without further ado, I present you with YG ON AIR'S EPISODE 2 & 3 WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES! :D

TOP wearing the helmet. #WIN! TOP worrying about his short air time in Episode 2. #WIN! 
Taeyang dancing to Seungri's 'VVIP' and G-Dragon lip-syncing to 'What Can I Do' was toooooooooooo cute! :3

Here's a video of Big Bang on HEY!HEY!HEY! Japan recently. Chris Matsumara and Rola conducted an ambush interview with them and it's so cuteeeeeeeeee! I really loved how both Chris and Rola were such big fans of the boys. It just makes me feel like I can relate to their behavior and hype around the boys if I ever get to meet Big Bang in person! *keeps fingers & toes crossed*

As usual, enjoyyy! :D

*Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttssss!* :)

It's released! Just a few minutes ago, the official music video for 2NE1's latest single, 'LONELY' was posted up! Enjoy the high definition quality and indulge in 2NE1's newest sound! The song is definitely refreshing and I'm liking the new style :)


*Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttssss!* :)


Since I've posted CL and Minzy's teasers yesterday, it's time for Dara and Park Bom! 
As usual, enjoy! :)



I can't wait till the full song is released! Although Papa YG has revealed that 2NE1 would not be promoting their single, 'Lonely' but we, Blackjacks know that this song is still gonna rock the charts! Am I right or am I right? ahaha.

*Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttssss!* :)

The girls are back with their newest single, Lonely and this song has already captivated me in every single way. The beat's smooth and addictive PLUS there's no auto-tune involved. This doesn't mean that their songs with auto-tune aren't awesome! Who can forget 2ne1's 'Go Away', 'Can't Nobody' and 'Clap Your Hands'? :D

Check out CL's part of Lonely!

Here's Minzy's teaser!

Wasssuuppp? :)

After ending their 4th mini album promotions with a BANG, Papa YG has decided to relieve the sadness of VIPs by posting up a video of Big Bang's activities in Japan. As expected, the boys are doing a great job and working as hard as ever in Japan. All we can do now is wish them all the best and wait for Papa YG's next update on YG ON AIR! Stay tuned for updates! :D

Helllllooooo peeps!

As promised, I will be blogging about the Hennessy Artistry 2011 event that I've recently attended with none other than YJ anddddddd *drumrolls*
Seriously, if there was an award for the Coolest Grandma, she'd totally own it. She's the person whom we drink with occasionally and pour our hearts out to. <3

Although I wasn't too sure if she enjoyed the blasting club music and overly crowded room, she sure loved the drinks that kept on coming! 

Before entering the event, we got to take a picture on the red carpet. Celebrity style :p

My brother and I got to hang out too! :D (Although he was busy socializing with others most of the time)  ehehehe. Don't tell him I said that! D:

What can I say about the event? Yes, it was at a much smaller scale compared to last year's but that doesn't mean people did not party twice as hard as they did last year! The Opera was a little too small for the coverage of such a popular event though since the whole club was packed and I felt like I was in the sauna most of the time. Brushing shoulders with cuties is one thing, but having to jam your elbows into other people in order for them  to move out of the way is another thing. Imagine how sweaty everyone was! *ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww~* AHAHAHAHA! The other thing that I wasn't especially fond off was how ALMOST EVERYONE in the club was smoking like a chimney! I know you must be going like, "What is she talking about? IT'S A CLUB!" Yeah, I know that and I didn't want to be petty but seriously? Must so many people smoke? Don't they know the EFFECTS OF SMOKING?!? *stands up to grab my Biology book*. ahahaha. Can you imagine being in a SMALL CLUB with an OVER-SIZED CROWD that smokes? If the venue was a little bigger, perhaps I wouldn't have felt so suffocated. But hey, that's just me. Someone else reading this post could really be addicted to being a passive smoker. You would never know! Just sayin'!

The GREATTTTTTTTT thing about this event, however, which helps to cancel out most of the points above would be the superb service. I swear I was holding a glass of either Hennessy Apple or Hennessy Berry the whole night. (Not that I mind, though. eheheh) No, don't look at me like I'm some kind of alcoholic! I AM NOT! I only had 3 glasses and frankly speaking it was quite enough. I didn't need to get drunk to have fun. Just sipping on my tasteful drink slowly and bobbing my head to the AMAZING songs being played made me feel like KING! Or queen. Oh, and another thing, the DJ in-charge was totally awesome. The song choices were superb and it totally got the crowd rushing to the dance floor! 

It was definitely a night to remember. And although I may have came across as some whiny kid that's really petty, I actually truly enjoyed myself that night. This is what we call experience, right? If you've got an opportunity to attend something like this yourself, GO FOR IT! :)

P.S: Wish you were there, PJ! :(

*Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttssss!* :)

I've just discovered a new word today!

If it's your first time hearing this word, it actually means leggings but in jeans material. They're more stretchable thus making it more comfortable to wear than jeans. You practically just slip it on like leggings while some others have zips or buttons. It's very skinny and definitely matches well with long tops or short dresses. I can't wait to get my hands on one! If I'm not mistaken, ZARA, MANGO, NICHII & TOPSHOP are selling jeggings.

The versatility of jeggings allows you to dress them up with a tunic and sexy heels for date night or allows you to go casual with a t-shirt and ballet flats for weekend wear. So if you like the look of skinny jeans but want a little more comfort, then the latest curve hugging denim trend is sure to show off your full figure in all the right places making it a must-have piece for your wardrobe.

If you are short, wear them with platform heels. Those few inches will really elongate the legs. And if you are curvy then the most flattering way for curvy girls to rock them is by wearing a flowy tunic top that floats away from the body. Consider belting the tunic at your waist to create an hourglass shape.

*Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttssss!* :)

Hello helllo, everyone!

Can you believe that it's already MAY?! *panics* 
My finals are just around the corner! *shrieks* And after feeling unmotivated for a couple of weeks, falling sick, recovering and just wanting to lay in bed until someone drags me back up onto my own two feet, I've decided that it's time to stop procrastinating. Maybe this has something to do with me turning 18. I dunno. Or perhaps I just needed time to play dead in order to do some soul searching. I presume that I'm feeling this way as I'm still undecided about my future. It can get REALLY frustrating at times. I'm sure everyone of us has felt this way before. The most important thing is picking yourself back up (no matter how). 

And to encourage everyone out there to get through this gloomy phase, here's YG ON AIR's video of Park Bom covering 'You & I' as well as 'Don't Cry' in acoustic! She has breathtaking vocals and I swear she sounds exactly the same as her released audio, if not better. This girl just never fails to impress me. ahahaa. Enjoy the video! :)

And if you guys aren't fans of Park Bom, check out SE7EN's collaboration with TOP during the YG FAMILY CONCERT! What an amazing performance that keeps fans all over the world screaminggggg! (For maximum effect, blast your speakers!)

Peace out! :D
*Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttssss!* :)
