I'm going to post some upcoming dramas, both Korean and Japanese, in separate posts. Give official websites (if there is any yet), synopsis and cast. Every month another post.

Korean Music - Part 1


Some websites of Korean Artists. When I have time (muahaha) I will make the same list of those Japanese Artists I actually listen to.

Just to mention: I don't listen to everything on the list below. Some of them, yes. And I will try to update it as much as possible. The second part will be more on those I listen to^_-

Hanshik - Korean Food

It's on DA already.
Part two on Korean food. Part one was on hanok (Korean traditional house).

Lee Soo Young - La la la video


The reason I'm putting this up is Jeong Jae Young. He appears in the MV. The album is from 2002.
You can buy it via Yesasia.
Video is how a video should be made.

Asian Music

And why Delispice Bombom  as a picture tag? The answer is simple. Because they are the best. This album is the best. My commitment is so deep I'd ordered their albums from Korea. Everything written below is based on my personal preferences and taste, not everyone has to agree.
And I guess it won't.

JJY: news articles^^

I found a list, but to be perfectly frank, they're all in my bookmark folder called 재영.

퀴즈왕

I really do hope they don't try to cause me a heart attack.
According to naver, there will be another movie? I haven't heard of anything like this, but it's maybe a new project? Since filming of G-Love will start this summer, so maybe...
Naver.Movies
cast:
김수로, 한재석, 류승룡, 장영남, 류덕환, 이해영, 정재영, 임원희

I don't really care about what, will JJY make a cameo or main role, dirty or clean, I'll take everything.
And sadly I found out he was in London this week. Dammit, why I don't live there?
Small video on Going By The Book I found:

4th Asian Film Awards


March 22nd, 2010 
Mother took the Award for the Fest Film. It really is. I was shocked after seeing it, and the movie left me speechless. Firs I wanted to see this for Won Bin (who turn out to be great in it, I just remembered him as a sweet aspiring assassin^^), and Kim Hye Ja (whom I admired in drama Goong).
Movie is gritty, depressing at some point and moving. Great acting, marvellous editing and script.

Jeong Jae Young - few videos^^

So, this is how elated with love people feel...

Iggi poster!! Updated March 25.

I am the happiest person ever! Since the poster is revealed, I know my time of waiting and watching for the 20th time other movies is going to an end^^ Four months, four months, yes, I can manage it...
Jeong Jae Young in new movie, eh...
I found it, as always everything, on Chosun Ilbo^^

Tono monogatari

In case anyone is interested in Japanese folklore. Yanagita Kunio is considered to be a "father of japanese ethnology". Nothing new, due to Kojiki mark on older generation's minds.

Kamikakushi - updated March 22


Since I don't like posts without pictures, this one, completely unrelated to the post. Oh, no I know, it's because Nataku was my favorite character in manga. That is why he popped into my mind and I could find a pic of him on my HD.
I really don't have time for doing this, but I would do anything that could give me a break. I'm currently writing an article on kamikakushi. And it's going extremely good, considering those 2 glasses of wine.
What the hell, today is that one saddest day in a year and I can drink!
I will try to write something more here on kamikakushi when I'm done with two articles I need to write.


Personal Preference and Wagaya no Rekishi





These dramas are my most anticipated so far. I've known about Personal Preference for two months now, and Wagaya no Rekishi for a month. Still, as the first one is a comedy/romance genre, it doesn't concern me that much, although I waited to see Lee Min Ho in something new. Yes, yes, I mentioned it earlier, no BOF fan here^^.
Wagaya no Rekishi is more serious that is why I don't compare them. Some people commit this mistake, and are ready to fight to the death for their reasons.
It's useless.
Why? Simply because we don't compare steak with Sacher cake, although both things are food. One is a serious meal, the other one is a dessert.

Japanese Culture - Architecture Influence & Origin


I posted it on DA, but in case anyone comes across it here, I will give a link to the file.
The whole documentary is in Japanese with English subtitles harsubbed. I wish someone would do the same with Korean documentaries. There are here and there (Clubbox, here I come^^), but without any subtitles.

Japanese learning

There is a website where you can download many, many things, like books, videos, and dictionnaries. It's all in Rapidshare or MU links though, so not everyone will be happy with it.

JJY^^

Nothing new, I found a short article about his appearance in Samsung dong. I did have another article posted earlier on it, but since the pics are different, and I suddenly couldn't focus, I decided to put this up*-*
