We made a song! #HARUSKAH

Haruskah kau tinggalkan semua? 


Hello guys I come back! Today I won't be talking about k-pop and stuffs but I will be talking about my last project in 12th grade (YAAAAS.) which has just ended.

The project started from the beginning of the 12th grade, with the teacher divided us into 3 groups consist of 8 to 9 members.... Don't need to explain all the details like story telling, but long story short we were assigned to create a song which themed social or love or family and even can consist the two or three of them. We chose friendship with no specific reason and we think it can be referred as social or love.

We made our song, recorded it with professionals, got the song (with my voice on it), shot our music video, and presented it in the school. Sadly, the song that we think is superb and has its own charms didn't win the best music award and the best video award. We had big hopes but unfortunately, we didn't win anything.
I was disappointed, of course. I was the editor of the music video and worked my ass off, but I felt like I didn't get appreciated. The song is really awesome, too, because for me it has its story and doesn't sound boring.

The song itself is about friendship, its a story about two friends which parted because one of them has one new friend. The songs says "Haruskah?" Do we have to part because you get a new friend?

But it was an awesome experience because it has been my dream to record a song and make one too! I feel like I'm closer to music, because this time I'm not a listener, but also a lyricist and a singer.



BEAST 'Good Luck'!

As I promised, a post of BEAST who has come with a new album "Good Luck".

They come out with two version of album this time, black and white. Each with different photo concept, white is pure, black is dark. With a random lip card. Here's what it looks like (not mine, credit to sgkpoppers.wordpress):

::  About Good Luck  ::  the title song itself

I already explained some about their 'changes' in the other post (new logo and a pre-released M/V for the album "Good Luck") check it out if you haven't.

Yong Junhyung once again, is the producer of this song. If you haven't known him, he is the rapper of BEAST and has made so many good song, also was the producer of BEAST mini album, "How To Love, Hard To Love." He pulled out the trigger once again and I am in love. Even it is just a mini album consists of seven songs, he proves all of the skills he has. (and I realize I'm pulled to his charms, a bias list wrecker, he is)

Good Luck is a dance song with a broken-hearted man lyrics in it, as they are known for singing sad song as their title song (except "It's a Beautiful Night"). The song "Good Luck" brings me back to the "Shock" era where the songs sounds electronic, but this one is diverse with a kind of American feel yet still electronic in it. Can't explain it in more scientific way, but it's a totally new kind of song for BEAST.

What I am amazed is that this 'new kind of song' is made by Junhyung. He worked with the last album which title song is "Shadow" and rather than the American feel that I told you, it has more a vintage feeling in it, not modern like "Good Luck". It is a change, but it is good.

I am not going to lie, I have not yet tired to hear "Good Luck" in my ears. I just... haven't. If I compare to the other boy groups I like (not naming anyone, I think you could guess), I love this song better. Absolutely.

The music video takes a concept of a popular Chinese move, "2046", but since I don't watch it nor understands it, I think I should pass the M/V review. Though I really love how the camera works so well making the set looks modern. Or the set IS modern.

::  Other Songs  ::  I'm taking you to my "Good Luck" mini album trip.

So, the one that makes a big progress this time isn't only Junhyung, but also the member Gikwang. He made one of the songs called "History" (you must be thinking of Exo's "History", but the song is a lot different than that). This "History" contains the sexy voices of the members and I have to mention the lyrics. This is the chorus.
"Tonight is our history / I’ll slowly come closer, so baby take it slow / Dim the lights and raise the volume / Our secret time baby just relax your mind"
Addition. I die at Junhyung's rap everytime I hear the song.

Another song, "Tonight, I'll Be By Your Side (이 밤 너의 곁으로)" sounds easy listening, very opposite from the other songs in the mini album. It shows the beat of 90's songs.

"We Up", for me the only song that shows the party. No sadness in it, just the signs to people to enjoy the night. They used this song to accompany the title song, maybe to make the comeback stage livelier. They also brings back dancers to the stage, couple dancing with the female dancers.
Truthfully, I didn't really like it at first and I was hoping "Dance With You" to come on stage.

::  Favorites  ::

"I wanna dance with you."
It's a sad song, about wanting your ex to dance with you together, like back in the days. But it has the beat and energetic feels into it. Really not a glommy song and it is liven up my mood.
(+) Favorite, "Sad Movie"
It is a remake of the Japanese version and I love this 91274914 better. It's just that Korean seems familiar to me than the Japanese. (feel me). Sad Movie = Sad song, of course. I love the piano entrance and then Yoseob's voice starts to filling me. It's a great song.

Last but not least...
You probably have already listened to "Not Anymore (이젠 아니야)" in the last post. If you haven't, click here, and see my thoughts about it.

p.s I know you heard a lot of Junhyung in this post, but Yoseob is still my number one bias (okay, that sounds cheeky and weird) and just wanna to tell that they won all of the music shows in 4th week of June and to surprise you guys, they got 10,000 points on Music Core and 11,000 points on Inkigayo which are PERFECT SCORE.
Congratulation to BEAST and what a hard work B2UTY.


Asian Dream Cup 2014 ft. Running Man bundle up!

Hear all the euphoria, guys? I recklessly with my sister and two friends skipped school to watch Asian Dream Cup 2014 in Gelora Bung Karno.

Being a lucky girl in the month--or I consider myself as one--I won two tickets from Gandaria City thanks to my desperate want to watch ADC. I was going to skip school even if I didn't get the tickets, btw. Stubborn, yes.

At least my dreams fulfilled even though I saw them from far away, excluding Lee Kwangsoo. He came, running, going around the field. Shouting, "1, 2, 3" with his hands and asking us to scream out loud. I love him more and more with his dumb but caring character.
I bet he was loving all of the chants, which were not only for him, but also to the others six members of Running Man, plus we didn't forget to chant "Park Jisung!". It's insane.
Everytime a Running Man member played, the stadium filled with the chants.

And what awesome is, the whole stadium did a huge wave.
I really really enjoy it despite my low knowledge on football.


The Running Man members tweets their enjoyment in the country.
1. "Good Morning Indonesia"
2. "See you soon" (I really hope to see you guys soon)

3. Instagram updates! (kjk76 and gaegun)

Another instagram post from Kim Jongkook who posed with a baby tiger in Taman Safari. I bet he captured this picture from Running Man broadcast. Father and his child!

They went to Taman Safari for the Dream Camp, the Running Man filming (200th EPISODE GUYS). Some of the fans, who willingly spent their time to stalk, got a FREAKING CLOSE selca. I. ENVY. YOU. (I don't put their photos because it is simply their privacy)

This episode have aired: Here's to watch RUNNING MAN EPISODE 200 ENGLISH SUB. (power of kshownow ftw)

P.s: the header photo is mine and I capture all of the sns post. Thank you!


BEAST new logo + new song "No More (이젠 아니야)"

I miss writing. I really have a lot of topics but I just can't arrange it to be 'readable' for you guys.
But, hey! I have one now. 

Guess who has a new song, new logo, and a new album coming up. 
BEAST. 비스트. The no longer B2ST. 

:: NEW LOGO ::

Cube is being a hardworking company nowadays with a new logo concept of BEAST that isn't oldskool and have a simple meanings. Do you know their history? Let me tell you. 
1. They appeared as a group called BEAST, with an infamous logo B2ST with 2 represents the E and A. But actually, it has meaning as the Boys of The East Standing Tall (????) (Question marks everywhere)
2. Even though before debut the comapny, Cube, changed its name to BEAST, the logo remains as B2ST. 

But now look at the modernized or.. simplified logo. It is made from their hangul name 비스트.. 
Erm do you understand? The 비 becomes only ㅂ with a sharp bottom like a capsized triangle in the logo, the 스 makes a triangle, and the 트 make a Σ symbol. 

:: NEW SONG ::

They are back with another love sickness themed song, they are really popular with a broken heart song, eh? Now, it's Not Anymore (이젠 아니야). A song about a couple who has broken up for months, but one of them is sucked at moving on.

"Why did you come to me again when I've already cooled down? I have no more warmth to share with you anymore."   "I'm not someone you can lean on anymore."

The wonderfulness you need to know:
The concept of the M/V. Cube is using Instagram Beastagram and let us see their love story through it. The actress is Lee Yubi if you haven't noticed and Junhyung played again as the main character. I think he still has all of the feels and make it as his song inspiration. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
I just really like this concept, it's stick to the story of the song but expressing it with the modern technology. Applause to whoever the music video director is.


Release soon on June the 16! (June is really my month /happy/) Of course with Junhyung as the producer.
Title Song is GOOD LUCK.
Will write a new post about it, do not worry!

P.s: I'm really sorry to Infinite for not writing about you guys! "Last Romeo" is actually really awesome too. They have risen from the song (Man In Love, Destiny) that I don't like. "Last Romeo" uses diverse instruments and you can hear all of it in your ears. Infinite is finally back to the "The Chaser" era that I love.
My favorite song from their album is "Shower (소나기)". It is definitely worth listening.


Orange Caramel - Catallena (까탈레나)

An unique comeback from the unique sub-unit group 'Orange Caramel'!
I really love the concept and the song is very addicting so I decide to make a post. 

Most of you maybe don't like 'Orange Caramel' very much. They are just like 'Crayon Pop' with those quirky and weird kind of concept, which doesn't get me at first. 
Orange Caramel songs like Bangkok City or Magic Girl are actually a good song too. I don't pay attention to their music video-which is actually funny-only the songs are catchy for my ears. 
This time, there is the music video on my youtube dashboard.. and the teasers are making me curious. Because they are already giving us a 'sushi' concept. They are dancing on a sushi plate alongside with some wasabi. And also, there is a scene where they are in a styrofoam box, the one that you often see in supermarkets (I'm not good at explaining). Here's a picture.

Some of you may not like the songs, but before I come further with my explanation, here's the music video! Don't forget to turn on the CC for english lyrics! 

The music video itself is telling us what Catallena means and the adaptation into the sushi concept. 
Lizzy said "Since 'Catallena' is a relatively new slang word, we didn't know what it was at first. It refers to someone that is childish and picky but strangely attractive. The lyrics also carry the meaning of the word".
There is maybe one of your friends that is perfectly fit for what Catallena means. (Look around, there will be one). A person that is really annoying, but you can't help it that you want to be like him/her. That he/she is so attractive yet charming.
In the video, you can see the orange caramel members and in addition the catallena which is an octopus. The octopus has a higher class than the OC's members (which is a mackerel, salmon, and shrimp). Orange Caramel wants to be like the octopus, which has a higher price and is loved by everyone.
But we also see that the octopus is so arrogant and showing off his 'expensiveness'.

In the end, there are costumers who come to the sushi house and eats everything except the mackerel, salmon, and shrimp. So the real human Orange Caramel come and eats themselves.
They are crying in happiness because of the dish. I think it tells us to realize that even though we can't be the 'octopus', we have to be grateful to have our own charms and be happy with it!

My analysis is somehow correct, isn't it?


2NE1 - Crush

2NE1 is back!
It is my first time writing for them (hello, it is also the 2nd full album after 4 years). Their comeback is a big scene to the K-pop music and the fact that the
come back time is the same as Girls' Generation makes the scene even hotter.
I am not a big fan, but I love their music, I love their styles, I love the girls... it is more than enough to write this, right?

The first time you hear the album, you'll be like "The album totally screams 2NE1."

Actually the first ones that I listen to the most are "GOTTA BE YOU (너 아님 안돼)" and CL's solo song called "Mental Breakdown/멘봉 (MTBD)" which is a common slang words for Koreans. CL's rap is freaking awesome plus the track itself makes you want to dance all over the place. Meanwhile, GOTTA BE YOU is a catchy song with a beautiful intro that hits you into it.

Another track that I DEFINITELY recommend to you is: Come Back Home.

The lyrics scream a sad story about a girl who ask his boy to come back. What is the most fascinating about this song is the Music Video. Guys. I really love the video..... Like, seriously.
Sci-fi type of movie has always been my thing and 2NE1 using that concept is so fitted to them.
More about it, the song sounds reggae-ish (and from what I know, it is also a trap hybrid genre song <which I don't understand a thing about the genre>). I love this song..and of course the M/V.
I am going crazy with the chorus part, the graphic is perfect. CL's rap part after that is infinitely perfect. I feel like watching a futuristic short movie.
“Come Back Home” is the name of one of the biggest Korean songs from the ‘90s, by Seo Taiji & Boys, which YG [Yang Hyun-suk, YG Entertainment’s CEO] was a member of. We thought it would be cool to shout out [the original] “Come Back Home” in dedication to YG.
The music video release was delayed because of the graphic issues. Even though it is late, the high quality videos indicates that they work hard for it. It actually makes me glad that they delayed the video release.
You have to listen to the UNPLUGGED Version of Come Back Home. It has a different vibe sounds sadder than before but still screaming 2NE1.
The song in the Come Back Home M/V is actually the mix of the two.

You have to listen to the other songs like "착한 여자 (Good To You)" that is Dara's favorite and also "살아 봤으면 해 (If I Were You)"". There are 10 songs in total... I think you have to listen them all.
All the songs are totally bringing me in to their styles. Everytime I hear the album, it is like a party in my head.

p.s. They will release 4 videos in total. Hyped! 
p.s.s. World Tour is coming. It's titled 'All Or Nothing' or AON, and Indonesia is one of their stops. The concept is also futuristic and I really want to see their concert live.
