I don't even know what to make of this. Seriously.

In case you couldn't tell (I COULDN'T), that's Jiro Wang on the right. I never thought I'd see a day where I wasn't attracted to him. That is possibly the worst haircut I've ever seen in my life. It does NOTHING for him. In fact, it makes his face look really puffy (It does look like he's gained weight in his face or something - kinda like fat!Ken... Ken wasn't really fat, but his face got all super puffy). Just... no. Please Jiro, get a haircut. For me. And here I thought Wilbur Pan's former hair was the worse I've seen... (Just kidding, Will's hair is FAR worse)

BTW, that's Danson Tang he's standing next to (at Danson's photobook signing). Conversely, Danson is looking fine.

Harvest Moon has kinda taken over my life the last few days. Suddenly I was VERY MUCH in a video game mood. I'm on my PSP now, but I just might change over to my DS (for Animal Crossing).

But anyways, this is kinda old, but I missed it because I don't read allkpop much anymore (I got really really sick of the Big Bang bashing). But I saw this, and laughed SO HARD. First off, I watched this show quite a bit in Taiwan. It's the Kpop/Jpop show on MTV Taiwan. I used to get a bit pissed off at the guy though, like MTV is the US, he spent too much time talking, and too little time on videos.

But seriously, that fangirl is essentially me. If I were really Taiwanese (I'm only fake Taiwanese ;P ). She flew to Korea from Taiwan to attend his concert, and then bought loads of stuff (the SAME STUFF I bought).

I'm working on translating it for myself, but APPARENTLY, 大東 (Jiro) is a fan of GD. Who knew? (Supposedly that's why Jiro dyed his hair blonde!)

In other news: Baby cracks me up. He did an interview awhile back where he talked about how he was learning Japanese by watching Jdramas (including Nodame and Quiz Show). And also he likes to watch dramas in his spare time. Do we have another Moco here?! If so, AWESOME. Ah, I ♥ You, Baby. He also wants to be friends with Toda Erika. Sure. FRIENDS.

So I mentioned how I got my last YesAsia shipment. Finally. 2 1/2 weeks after it shipped. 3 weeks after I placed the order. Why so sucky, YesAsia shipment?

This one contained my Hot Issue mini album, and Two Sided Fahrenheit.

Really tired suddenly. Makes sense, I HAVE been awake since 2:30am. I'm getting ready to make one of my last (for awhile) YesAsia orders. But not tonight. Tonight I have; shower, laundry, SLEEP.

I got to about half of my comments today. I'll to get to the rest tomorrow definitely.

I took less pictures this time around, because I figured not everyone is as obsessed with seeing pictures of everything as I am.

I got these last week, but have been either sick, or too tired to do much about it until now.

In these two shipments I got the Big Bang Always Mini Album, and the Fahrenheit Final Collectible Edition.

Fresh off my icon contest joy, I decided to post some icons I've had hanging around for awhile.

There's only 14 this time (I'm telling you, I'm REALLY slow). Mostly Taiwanese. Two Korean.

Icon Batch 1 Here

I think I've gotten better!


Icons! )

After viewing [livejournal.com profile] darkeyedwolf's Yoon Eun Hye picspam, I felt the incredibly urge to icon her. So I did, and now will share! I only made a few this time, but I have a ton more ideas. Also, since I was making pretty girl icons, I of course needed to make one of Qiao En!

I woke up this morning (...actually this afternoon...) to an awesome unexpected surprise. My third shipment from YesAsia had come! This one contained The Big Bang Number 1 DVD (Japanese limited first press edition). Aka, the most expensive CD I've ever bought. Why are Japanese albums SO EXPENSIVE?! The package also contained my DVD version of Eternal Summer (the best movie EVER).

So I took pictures. LOTS of pictures. And since I hadn't taken pictures of the Big Bang The Great Concert DVD I got, I took some (read; a lot) pictures of that too. I'm SO happy with the quality of everything I've gotten. Nothing was damaged from the shipments (and they came from Hong Kong, so that's saying something). I still haven't gotten my posters yet, though...

Some of the pictures (mostly of the photos) came out kinda crappy. I didn't want to bend the books too much, so they're weirdly alligned, but whatever. Better than nothing! Also, I took these without flash, so they kinda came out yellowish.

WARNING: This post is VERY image heavy

I also figured out today (Don't know why I didn't figure it out earlier...) that I can play my Chinese drama DVDs in my DVD player (I thought they'd be a different format, but it occurred to last night that since they're being sold in the US, they're probably format 1. They are. Not like it matters a ton, they don't have english subs.

Oh, and here are the high quality scans of from the Fahrenheit Love You More and More DVD booklet. The scanner kinda screwed them up a bit, but they're still usable!

Keep in mind, these pictures are HUGE. All but one of them are over 2000 x 2000 pixels large (the last is about 2000 x 1000 pixels). These are just thumbnails.

Feel free to take these if you'd like. I would appreciate it if you credited me for the scans if you use them to make icons / banners / etc though.

OMG I finally got the first of my YesAsia packages!!

Package 1 -> Fahrenheit's new (well, new in January) album, Love You More and More, which I reviewed here, on the day it came out (obsessed much, eh Meredith?).

So naturally, when I got it today, I kinda flipped out a bit, and took pictures of EVERYTHING.


Excuse the fangirling. Fahrenheit are my boyband (well, so are Big Bang... it's a tie), so I tend to flip out a little about them (I blame my insanity on the fact that I never got into American boybands when I was a teenager. I've been storing my fangirling up... plus, they're Taiwanese, and I'm already batshit crazy over anything Taiwanese).

My next package -> Big Bang's The Great concert DVD (with a photobook!!). Should be coming tomorrow.

God knows when I'm getting my posters, or my Big Bang CD/Eternal Summer DVD.

Da Dong, Rainie, and George on Xiao Zhu's show 100% Entertainment (ie. my favoritest show EVAR!). No subs, but still cute. (Includes some random clips from The Duchess, and Da Dong being awesome at drawing on paper lanterns)

One of the best things about Green Forest; about a quarter of the time they speak in english. Like, ALL of them (mostly Leon Jay Williams, but Ethan and Esther have both kicked it english style as well).

I'm working on something... I'll post it in an hour or so. Depends on when I finish...

I watched part 1 of second episode of Superstar Express (mysoju is only showing about half of the episode... I'm youtubing the rest currently... but as far as I can tell it hasn't been subbed. So yeah. Mandarin. Thankfully I know enough Mandarin so I'm not totally confused all the time). Still love it. It's super super cute. Honestly, I forget just how awesome twdramas are... It's nice to get back to them. Twdramas = my ultimate love!

I capped a little bit. Granted, these are screencaps from a streaming site, which means, in general, they suck. But they're better than nothing, ne?

Superstar Express episode 2... now with SCREENCAPS! )

UPDATE: I watched this part in Mandarin. (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] vierran45, I now know I was watching the DVD version, which is uncut, and why I was missing parts. The tv version is on viikii as well, but I already watched it in Mandarin, and I'm suddenly really tired. So whatever, I'll watch it later.) I did a little capping, and didn't understand much of what was going on, so excuse my ignorance about this part of the episode.

Second part )

So yes, super cute. I am highly enjoying it. But really, wtf is with Rainie's hair? I can't tell if it's a wig, or if they just kinda tucked her hair under, and made it appear short with added extensions. Twdramas are BIG hair offenders when it comes to unnecessary extensions. I see them ALL THE TIME.

I said I wasn't going to do it... but I did. I started Superstar Express. Stupid me, huh? I have millions of other things to finish already.

Oh well...

Good impressions so far. Also, REALLY loving the Chinese subs. I forget just how much I miss them until I see them again. Chinese subtitles makes my Mandarin learning oh so much easier. Also forget just how much I miss Taiwanese things/stuff in Mandarin. I quite enjoy kdramas and jdramas, but Taiwan will always be my favorite. Taiwan IS my soulmate.

Majorly tired.

I should just stay away from the asianfanatics news section. I always end up spending LOADS of time on there... some current news stories that interested me (Taiwanese and Korean);

Stories about Vanness Wu, Big Bang, Wu Zun, Jiro Wang, Lee Min Ho, hot boy lists, Chinese F4, Kim Bum, Superstar Express, Rainie, and Zai Zai )

Also, the cast of BBF must be cursed when it comes to car accidents. Bummie's gotten in two already, Kim Hyun Joong and Kim Joon each had one on the same day, Lee Min Ho was previously injured (badly) from a car accident, and just today Koo Sun Hye had a car accident! Thankfully in most cases, the injuries were non existent or minor (save for Min Ho's). But it makes me wonder, are car accidents in Korea THAT prevalent? I know Taiwan is notorious for car accidents (that's why a lot of times deaths in dramas are due to car accidents), but I didn't know Korea was as well. And really, shouldn't they be hiring better drivers to escort these major stars?

Summary of ratings for Taiwan's Idol Dramas: Performance of 'ToGetHer' is mediocre

First off, they changed the name of Superstar Express to "ToGetHer"?! No wonder the ratings suck... I hate it when there are those last minute changes to drama names (in english)... while the original titles aren't always great, the alternative titles are always 50% worse. Like, when they changed "Invincible Shan Bao Mei" to "Woody Sambo" (which is totally 'wtf territory' to me). Why can't they just do direct translations of the Chinese name?
Thoughts on the current season of Twdramas )

When Black & White comes on, I AM going to be live-watching. It stars Zai Zai (love of my life), and Chuan Yi (not the love of my life, but close). Btw, the wiki.d-addicts site for this show has the BEST engrishy sentence ever used to summarize a drama ever; "When a case brought these two top crime solvers together, sparks flied and a little light peeked into this dark city where the nation's President is on friendly terms with the local mafia and twins kill people while drinking milkshake."

I've seen videos of Zai Zai practicing shooting guns, and holy shit is it hot. I also have recently discovered I like his shorter hair a lot better than I like his longer hair. It took me months to get used to it though. Oh Zai Zai, I still love your Mars era Farrah 'do as well.

"The Director of the International department from the Tourism Bureau, Liu Xi-Lin pointed out that in the two years when F4 was the spokesperson for Taiwan Tourism in Japan and Korea, they successfully attracted the attention of 35- 45 year-old mature female fans. The effect was very satisfactory. Last November Fahrenheit took over as the new spokesperson and their target would be 18-25 year-old young female fans."
Um, what? )

In other news, I REALLY REALLY want this. but it's $24! Also, do you think it'd be strange if I bought a huge GD poster, and hung it up in my room and stared at it a lot? Yes? Fine.

A few news points;

Cannot lose to Ethan Ruan; Joe Cheng & Ariel Lin have another bed scene
This story is amusing to me only because it contains the phrase "there is no passionate skin contact whatsoever"...

5566 to Dissolve, New Faces to Take Over
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS!!!! I can only hope this is a rumor, but if it isn't... well I suppose they had a good run. Still... meh. Also, wtf?! "Sam Wang might be shifting his career into the bread making business to fulfill his dream"

Not going to link the whole article, but hello, best quote ever; "He is a veteran at bed scenes, and resulted in gaining the title of ‘asthma sex stick’." (BTW, they're talking about Ethan Ruan)

Arron Yan acts "handsome", kisses for 5 hours, becomes an adult in Fahrenheit’s MV
First of all, SQUEE! Aaron!! He's so cute! Second, wtf is it with female fans?! First Alan Luo, now Aaron?! Are they really THAT upset by them kissing other people while acting? Seriously people. So yay! New MV (though it's not one of my favorite songs)! But exactly why are they standing under a dangling car?

Fahrenheit promotes new album, Arron agrees to parade around Hong Kong
Poor Aaron! They're always picking on him! "The three of them forced Aaron Yan to wear swim trunks to swim in Victoria Harbour for celebration if the album sales in Hong Kong broke 50,000 copies; Aaron Yan asked them why and the three of them feel that since he is the youngest, he has to satisfy the younger fans. Aaron Yan could only agree to it unwillingly." Aw, Aaron! Ever since I saw the video of him doing that ridiculous cat dance, I've just wanted to squeeze him! It's kinda weird, because it's not like he's a kid... he's only 2/3 years younger than I am (there seem to be conflicting reports on what his birthyear actually is...)

*snort* "When Wu Zun was asked if he would imitate Aaron Kwok who showed his chest muscles at the concert if the album sales are good, he said, 'Nope! I don’t have a figure as good as him, and also not a status like him, wait until we have it then will show it!' " .... Oh Wu Zun... how I wish you would change your mind...
uisceros: (OMG Wu Zun + Cat = AWESOME)
Fahrenheit's new album is out!

Buy it, or Download it

I've listened to the whole thing, and really like it!

My favorites are;

- 動脈 (Artery) -> This is the opening theme for Aaron's drama, MIT. It had a dance beat, and is fast paced. There's no MV yet, that I know of.
- 越來越愛 (Love You More and More) -> This is my favorite song on the album. It's quite lovely, and OMG the MV... It's a ballad, but it's kinda a tonal mix, so it's hard to explain.
- 最佳聽眾 (The Best Listener) -> This song reminds me a ton of 我愛你 by F4. And everytime I listen to it, I get that S&K commercial F4 did in my head. Which isn't a bad thing, really.
- 恆星 (Shining Star) -> This is also a good song. It's the opening for Jiro's series, Rolling Love. I really like the opening of the song, it sounds epic. They're kinda rapping in the middle of it too... which is funny.

I'm no music critic, so I can't really be more descriptive, mostly because I'd have no idea what I'm talking about. I think my major disappointment with this album is that it contains too many slower songs. I don't like slower songs as much. Also, I thought it would be more rock inspired than it was. Otherwise, I really enjoy it! I'm anxiously awaiting more MVs to be made! Watching an MV makes me like the song more. Apparently I like images to go along with the music, probably why I'm such a fan of OSTs.
uisceros: (Default)

Probably one of the best videos ever, which includes five of my favorite people; Ella, Wu Zun, Jiro, Danson, and Alan. Alan is totally being sneaky too, trying to get Wu Zun and Ella to kiss! Adorable.

I don't know why I'm posting so many videos recently. But whatev... at least they're good videos! (If you like Taiwanese entertainment, that is. But everyone should, really. It's like the best thing in the world.)

More videos! S.H.E MVs, Fahrenheit on Alan's show, the Hana Kimi cast on various shows being hilarious, Wu Zun being molested by an overeager fangirl, Fahrenheit making out with each other (kinda sorta), TANK's MV feat. Wu Zun and Ella, and Zai Zai being awesome as per usual )

You know, I never once thought I'd jump on the real person shipping bandwagon. It always struck me as kinda weird, but then I got into Taiwanese culture, and discovered that the Taiwanese REALLY like their love teams. Now I am a crazy shipper for Ariel and Joe, Qiao En and Ming Dao, and Wu Zun and Ella. I do not, and will not ever ship someone with Zai Zai, because I love him and want him for myself (incidentally, that's the reason why while I like Barbie well enough, I will never love her like I do Ella, Ariel, and Qiao En).

I just spent a LOT of time downloading new music, and updating the stuff I already have.

Currently I have 5 S.H.E albums (the latest ones, Encore to FM S.H.E), and the two Fahrenheit albums. My obsession with Fahrenheit (Jiro and Wu Zun) and S.H.E (Ella) is growing exponentially.... And can I just say, I ADORE Dream Star. That site makes searching for Chinese music easy.

Huang Yi Da totally also released a new album at the end of November! I was totally unawares! I ADORE Huang Yi Da so much. 臭男人 was the first chinese song I really liked, and it still remains my favorite.

ALSO Fahrenheit is coming out with their new album (越來越愛) tomorrow!

I love their new looks! (Though I'm not terribly sure about Jiro's hair... It's so different it's kinda weirding me out. So much so that I had issues telling him from Aaron, because I'm so used to recognizing him by his hair...)

Normally I'd totally gush over Wu Zun, but Jiro wins this video. He's wearing a weird furry jacket thing, and then he had a wifebeater on and is playing guitar (for some reason, wifebeater + guitar = insane utter hotness to me. A wifebeater alone isn't hot, but paired with a guitar... expecially when it's on a crazy hot Taiwanese boy... yeah), and then he's singing behind a chandelier (granted, they're all singing behind chandeliers, but Jiro still wins)! Wu Zun is also pretty damn hot in it... he's working out in it, and for some unknown reason, I really really REALLY like it when (hot) guys get all sweaty doing manual labor or working out. Aaron was cute too (he was also working out... plus he had the adorable confession scene), but I honestly don't think Calvin is all that attractive. Not my type. But he does have a good voice!

And the ending is adorable, with Aaron trying to confess to a girl, and the others are there cheering for him, and like, high five each other when the girl accepts Aaron!

Also, does anyone else think Aaron kinda looks like Narimiya Hiroki in this video? No? Only me? Hmm.

Oh, and random question; Does anyone have the Comic Boyz (可米小子)'s albums, "Goodbye", or "Hey Hah!"?! I cannot find them for the life of me. I randomly found their second album though...
