I want to

Run between the skying sunflowers. Enjoy the sunshine with a cup of iced caramel latte in hand. Cry after reading a beautifully mushy romance. Go to a city where nobody knows me and just enjoy each and every second of the foreign place. Meet someone that could melt me with his talent and sweetness. Have someone to sing for me with a piano. Say this out loud, “Dear life, I’m hard to beat.”

And I wanna thank these guys who could always sing this beautifully.

I’ve seen this live performance of DB5K (or TVXQ in Chinese, Tohoshinki in Japan) several times but only lately I realized how AWE-to-the-SOME it is. It’s a performance in 2008 from Gayodaejun event, and DB5K sang two songs, Wrong Number and Mirotic, which is one of my favs ever! I once said I could write a long blog entry about this oh-so-damn-great performance. I’m not sure it won’t be long but I’m pretty convinced it’ll be full of fangirlish blabbering :D

First of all, I wanna say how much I adore their appearance here. For an event like this of course they should look classy and oh my boys, they really pulled it well! I love the combination of the black blazer, the stripey shirt and the white trousers <3 Although their basic outfit is the same, the stylist put a special touch to each member that suits their personality. Junsu’s outfit is the simplest since I think it reflects him. Both Yoochun and Changmin are wearing a bow-tie, which I think fits them well, due to their fresh personality. Changmin looks more classic though with his black shoes. Like Junsu, Jaejoong is not wearing any tie, and his blazer is that long-tail one. And to strengthen his sexy image, he’s wearing a white vest with his shirt unbuttoned. Meanwhile, Yunho’s blazer is long and he’s wearing a red tie. What can I say, each of them is just gorgeous here, they all succeeded in taking my breath away (hahaha my bias is Yoochun, but I must say that I love them all equally). Not to mention they all look best with dark-coloured hair!

I feel like a fashion police in my previous paragraph hahaha. Well, moving on to their performance! They started with Wrong Number, and for the opening, they came to the stage one by one, according to their turn in this song. I love the stage direction which arranges them to come to the stage from different places (too bad the camera didn’t shoot Jaejoong when he appeared from his entrance). Wrong Number was well performed but my favourite is Mirotic. They sang it with a live band therefore it is more more more splendid! Lemme repeat it again with capital letters, SPLENDID! Maybe because if you sing accompanied by a live band, you have more chances to improvise your act and it sounds more natural, yes? I think that’s what DB5K did here. There are some improvisation in several singing and dancing parts! That’s what makes this Mirotic is different with other Mirotics. Also the string section was there, ladies and gentlemen! It has made the song even more grand! I heart this performance so so much you can tell from the adjectives I’ve used <3 <3 After such a sexy performance, of course they had to end it gloriously. And do you have any idea what they did? Watch and you know why I always drool so hard over the ending LOL. Hint: Changmin, Yunho and Yoochun suddenly took off their ties because they had to do something precious :p

The day Dong Bang Shin Ki get back together again as five, I know I will explode like bombs.

Kiss Kiss by Kim Hyun Jung

I'm not a fan of Kim Hyun Jung. In fact, I used to dislike him :p but since my sis kept telling me that this is a good song, I tried to listen to it. Then hey, it is a simple yet good song! And even though it sounds sweet, it's actually a bitter song, they said. So, a soundtrack for a sad summer, we can call it?

Maybe those people are right. You shouldn't extremely hate something. You might end up loving it at the end :p

Starting from this entry, I’ll try to share some songs that have done/given something to me, either in good ways or bad ways (mostly are good, I hope). I’ll also post the video in case you wanna hear the song. Now let’s do the first one with the song that recently made me cry.

I think it was one night in June when I first listened to this song. I was alone in my room, and it’s almost midnight. I didn’t remember exactly why but I was really down and emotionally exhausted at that time, and the lyric of the song really got me. The song plus the bad mood equal tears. Yes, I couldn’t handle it anymore so I cried. Actually I was having a chat with a friend, and when I told her that I was crying, she gave me a big hug and wished that she could be there to give me a real hug instead of the virtual one. That’s very sweet, Sindi, thank you :) And until now, this is JYJ’s song that has had such a huge impact on me.

I can happily say that I’ve done my teaching task for this short term. And you know what time is it now? It’s time for holiday! Hooray! The new term will begin on September 19th, so it means I have free time for about one month. I have no special plan though, and for Lebaran, as usual I’ll be celebrating it in Jakarta with my family. I’m just gonna spend my holiday with good music and funny Korean TV shows. Actually I used to read lots of books during holiday, but I guess my IQ is getting smaller since I suck at finishing books lately! A few days ago I tried to read Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath but I fail to continue reading it. I don’t know whether the book is boring (because the narrator is rambling too much) or just like what I said before, my IQ is degrading ... And compared with my achievement in reading 50 books in 2009, this year I’ve finished only 11 books. Gah, what’s wrong with my brain?!

So! Since I don’t know what to say next, I’m just gonna make a list. This one is the list of my current fav songs. Go check it!

1. Mr. Simple – Super Junior
The band that pushed me to the land of K-pop fandom is back with a new single and a new album. When I first listened to this song, I was like ‘What the ...?’. It sounds like a Pantura disco song! But then I became addicted to this song because it’s just so damn catchy! The MV is visually entertaining too. I love their colourful blazers in it, and the way they play with ropes? I can’t help but thinking dirty harharhar.

2. Heart is A Beating Drum – The Kills
My fav boy/girl duo delivered a dirty and rocking new album this year. How I wish they were really a couple in real life ...

3. Found You – JYJ
The soundtrack for Chun’s drama. A very sweet song about finding your another half in life. I believe I’ll bawl my eyes out when seeing them performing this right in front of me.

4. Monalisa – MBLAQ
I totally like their concept for this mini album, like they’re coming out of a Rocky Horror Show-ish (I kinda forgot the title, sorry) film with Latin-inspired music.

5. Still Life – The Horrors
The Horrors have found their true music, and this surreal song is just too cool. Lemme repeat it, cooooool.
