Everything I Thought I Loved In Life Has Been Replaced By SHINee

I don’t think I have ever known love before. Truly. What ON EARTH have I been doing all these years? You might as well say I’ve been dead. I must have been to not have noticed SHINee for so long.

I officially declare, without a shadow of a doubt this time, that SHINee is, most certainly, my #1 favorite K-pop group. Yes, you heard me. That means even above Super Junior and -dare I say it?- DBSK. Those words I never thought I would say, ESPECIALLY about SHINee.

On my list of K-pop groups, SHINee was, in all 100% honesty, at the bottom. I didn’t care one bit that they even existed. I liked maybe 2 songs by them, and I still didn’t find them particularly worth my time. They were just…eh. Just some over-rated K-pop group that seemed to garner more attention than it deserved.

I wish I could go back in time just to slap myself in the face.

Over the course of a few days, SHINee skyrocketed from last place to first place, surpassing the insurpassable Super Junior and DBSK, and everyone else, on my list.

I have a disease. No longer do I care about K-Dramas. Rather, I listen to SHINee almost non-stop, and I have proceeded to download and obsess over nearly every song they have ever released. But that, certainly, is not all.

Two words: Hello Baby. The very words bring me infinite joy. The very thought of that show. Of Minho, Jonghyun, Taemin, Key, Onew and the sickeningly adorable baby angel Yoogeun playing, cooking, laughing, loving. I feel like I am going to burst from how ridiculously entertained I am by this show.

I don’t know what I love more: SHINee as entertainers, or SHINee as people. Is there really any way to choose? I can find no fault in them. I love everything they do. I love their music, their personalities, their dancing, their singing, their comedy, their looks (haha), just everything.

I don’t even feel compelled to write a long blog entry. They are just that great. They don’t even need a large article to be wonderful. They just are.

And, as of now, nothing else matters.

Kyuhyun, Kyuhyun, Kyuhyun, and more Kyuhyun. That is all I need.

        Why yes, I have just posted a picture of perhaps one of the most beautiful and talented people on this earth. And yes, you are very VERY welcome, my friend.

Don’t know Kyuhyun? Don’t like Kyuhyun? Please, leave now. I mean it. Don’t even bother to read my blog unless you are at least mildly a fan of this wonderful creature. If you don’t know him, I hope I can englighten you.

Most commonly known as Super Junior’s “maknae” Kyuhyun is the baby of the group, with the voice of an angel. Everytime I hear him sing, whether it be in the hazy background chorus of a Suju dance pop song, or the lead of a touching K.R.Y. ballad, I feel like either a) Bursting into tears, b) squealing like the little fangirl that I am, or c) melting into a puddle of emotion on the floor.

However, my adoration for him is not a shallow one. Honestly, I believe that, even if he wasn’t the adorable, charming darling that he is, his voice alone would render me a hopeless fan of everything he does. He is too talented to deny; and the music industry is lucky to have him.

Super Junior, Super Junior M, KRY, SM Ballad; to name a few. I will continue to jump for joy whenever this heavenly singer is recruited into yet another sub-group of SM Entertainment. And, as much as I, as well as just about all fangirls, craves the delicious idea of him being a solo artist, with each scene of a MV dedicated solely to him, deep inside we all hope and pray that he will never leave Super Junior, and that Super Junior in itself will be eternal.

I believe there is a god somewhere that looked upon Kyuhyun as an infant (who was most likely just as adorable then) and decided to bestow upon him the greatest, most beautiful voice ever to be blessed upon humanity. Haha. Yes, I mean it.

Being the dedicated (I say “dedicated” to avoid really saying what we fangirls truly are, which is “sickly obsessed”) fan that I am of him, I have watched plenty of Star King and Immortal Song 2 clips to fulfill my dosage of Suju playtime and glimpses into what I can only imagine their “personality” to be. And Kyuhyun (of maybe it’s just because I’m so enormously biased) seems to forever be the most endearing.

Ahhhh I could rant forever, but I know I’ll get too carried away. I’ll stop here, just giving you a little taste of my love for him (perhaps too much so). Meanwhile, I shall return to listening to Suju KRY’s “Words of the Westerly Wind” which is literally THE MOST BEAUTIFUL song I have ever heard. Please, go look it up now. Kyuhyun sings a great deal of it! 😀

Thanks for reading my obsessive ranting! Hope I didn’t scare you too much (I scared myself a little). 😛 I believe there is a deep fangirl of something within all of us! Some of us are simply too scared to unleash it. But here, I unleash it. My love for Kyuhyun, my favorite singer and artist ever. I respect his music, just as much as I admire his looks ^_^ Keep at it Kyuhyun! Fighting!!

Annyeoung! ~

Just for kicks, here’s one more pic 😀

Can’t Get Enough Hotaru no Hikari!!

                OMG. I am crazy about this J-drama. Not only did I fly through the first season (thank god there is more than one) but I am now heavily in love with the second season; possibly moreso than I was in season 1.

This drama encompasses everything I love about J-dramas, and dramas in general. I have NEVER adored a character as I do Amemiya Hotaru (Ayase Haruka). I laugh so hard watching this adorable drama. Her and Buchou and all their sweet little antics, such as beers out on the porch or a nice little “gororororo” rolling segment just melts my heart. Amemiya Hotaru is both incredibly hilarious, and hopelessly endearing. I see so much of myself in her, as well as so much I wish I could be. She is a perfect all-around character, and I shall forever have enormous respect for Ayase Haruka based on this role. Buchou as well! AHHH! I love him. And Futatsugi-san and Yamada-ne-san, funny Seno “Himono-Otoko”-san, and even Makoto-kun from Season 1 who I earlier ranted about hating,

Oh gosh I just love everything about it.

I know in my last entry I sounded like an angry anti-fan, but I assure you that pet peeve has passed (it ended up being resolved within the next episode) and now I am hopelessly in love with this show.

Sure, it ‘ain’t no K-drama, and it doesn’t have all that high quality glitz and glamor or deep plotlines. Rather, it is just the silly mishaps of the ditzy and clueless Hotaru, and her weird, but sweet, friend/lover relationship with her boss, but current roommate, Buchou. I know, sounds confusing, but trust me, this is perhaps the simpliest drama ever. No crazy, in-depth drama or sadness. No intense or suspenseful twists. No cliche’ plot hang ups. Just pure and simple fun.

That’s all it is, just pure fun. Plenty of laugh out loud comedy, without the over-the-top animeness one might expect from a J-drama. It’s the kind of comedy that even someone as stuck-up (yeah, I’m stuck-up) as I can enjoy. Trust me, it’s good.

It’s a perfect feel-good drama about the awkwardness of young love, and the main idea of “if someone loves you, they should love you as you are” concept that is forever lovely.

I would HIGHLY reccommend this show. It is very beloved to me, and I am enjoying every minute of it.

And one more thing: Season 2 is honestly even better than Season 1, which is a sweet rarity. I feel so connected to the characters having known them for so many episodes, and the silly charms of Season 1 that I loved so much are (in my opinion) even more apparent and lovable in Season 2.

Can’t wait to watch more of Aho-Miya and Buchou, and see what other ridiculous trouble they get into 😛

Oyasumi! Jaa~

(P.S. To me the pic below sums up this show PERFECTLY. Hotaru doing something stupid and weird, and Buchou, as always looking at her as if to say “How can this kind of stupidity truly exist?” Ah, I love you Buchou. And you too Hotaru, of course.)
