"Imagine a world without music. That sorry place would be much like a world without color; lifeless, drab and depressing. Music is expression. It is passion and emotion and can mirror or channel our states of mind at any given time. It has the power to build us up or tear us down with a few simple chords. It influences the way we feel, what we think and how we perceive the things and people around us." -- tuneslibrary

It's been 3 years today since Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment regarding unfair contract terms.

I can still remember the shock brought by the news to me and to my friends, and above all that the uncertainties of what will happen to the group with only 3 of the 5 filing a lawsuit.
so 3 years had gone by and we already know what has transpired.. Despite the 5 continuing with their careers separately, quite successfully I have to point out, there are still unanswered questions and there are still injustices experienced by the 3 who left the company.

After 3 years, even though they have dramas and musicals and still release albums, JYJ still hasn't been given equal opportunity to promote their music locally, TV guestings are still suspiciously being cancelled.

I don't know anything about the justice system in South Korea, as to how long these types of cases really last, but for a fan who has been waiting for a long time - it still hurts to know that my favorite artists have not been able to show their full potential because of this hurdle they are facing. There are consequence to every action, but at this time it seems to be not fair any more.

Let them attend music and variety shows, let them promote their CDs without hindrances. Because I believe and I know that they can still reach number 1 just like their two brothers. It's not a competition but to prove a point that all of them can still rule the industry and show everyone, old and new to the fandom what they're really capable of.

Or at least, with this lawsuit ending, we can hopefully get a small glimpse of the five boys trying to mend their differences and remain as friends, like being reacquainted after seeing a long lost friend - even if they are not together at this point in time. It's not about prying into their personal lives and relationships, but it should give a peace of mind for everybody, for them and for all the fans.

I am still here hoping and praying for the best for all of them. and here I am still waiting.

... i don't want to fit it in one entry, otherwise you'll lose interest :x

사랑일까요 I want you feel just like me
is this love? I want you feel just like me
인연일까요 I want you feel the same about me
is this fate? I want you feel the same about me
그대 뒷모습 사라질 때까지 바라보지만
i look at your back until you disappear
벌써 그대 웃음이 그리워지네요..
already i am longing for your smile...

As what Paolo Coehlo said in one of his tweets: Dreams and love are just words - until you decide to experience them. Pretty much the heavens conspired for me to attain and experience several of my dreams in one memorable trip. and the love just flowed more and more...

and I'm listening to this song by Park Sae Byul - Is this Love? ♥ so forgive the cheesiness....*.*

before i start, i just gotta say:


I'm continuing my korea adventure entries by posting food pics!!! nomz!

I was really surprised, that despite the amount of food we ate, i still lost a pound or two after this trip. Could be due to 2 things: that red super spicy peppers can actually burn fat inside the body, or it's because we walked around the entire city everyday and the exercise equalized the food intake XD so maybe you like the korean food in your local restaurants, i can assure that the spice they put there is tempered because i've never had so much water gulped down in one meal when we were in seoul. okay maybe a bit exaggerated with the water, but authentic korean food is damn spicy! and ...i love it! ♥

lunch time in insa-dong! squid with gochujang for me & pollock with garlic for meli.
and yessss banchannnn! side dishes ^^

no good meal is complete without alcohol. MAKGEOLLI!
it's the korean rice wine. lee seon joon hates drinking it bec he's adorbs like that :p

after years of delaying a much desired trip to go to South Korea, I made a mantra for myself to fulfill, "SEOUL 2010". it was like now or never. I thought that if i really don't put my mind to it, and fix my schedule around it, my dream might not be realized. I also wanted it to be a personal trip, aside from just going there to watch a concert or find an artist (well of course, who wouldn't like that). But i wanted it to be an experience that is more intimate and less stressful.

it's been a while since i updated my blog, and what better time but now. It's wonderful to reminisce the 8 days, think about the special moments, and there are so many pictures! but i tried to compile some and show them to you. 8 Days is rather long, so i want to make 3 different entries with themes of 1. sights 2. food and 3. fangirling.

i had my Seoul Searching with kahel_luna. we've been to other trips before, but what made this one different is my realization that we easily got tired from walking. hahaha. Seoul is a very walkable city, so maybe the hilly geography added to the tiring experience as well. but we're pretty much stomped after a few hours, that we had to take a seat, grab a bite and rest our tired feet XD is age catching up on us? ahhh.

1. Sights
It's all about the details. I've always been curious about the modern meets traditional that I always hear about Seoul, and now that i've seen it... well, it's got a different charm. I tried to compare Seoul with other cities i've been to before and definitely it's got it's own unique vibe. The city didn't strike me as having one definitive aura, bustling like Tokyo, majestic like Prague, eccentric like Amsterdam or serene like Paris. Each area is unique and worth exploring. so maybe the modern meets traditional confused me a bit. but in a good way.

One thing to point out also is that i'm really thankful i can at least read and understand hangeul. it really helped us going around the different areas, and importantly in ordering food!!! there are still establishments and public transportation that doesn't carry english, so .. yes. major plus to learn the language.

At the heart of the city is this big castle complex of Gyeongbokgung. One of the more interesting things about Korean culture is the primary importance they give to their history, which definitely shows in the way they preserve such historical architectures. It would have been cool to explore the Gyeongbokgung grounds wearing a hanbok and re-enact living in Joseon. it's interesting to get lost inside it, especially if you have thoughts of Lee Seon Joon swirming in your head. okay name distraction XD

here's a couple of beautiful architectures inside Gyeongbokgung.
There are areas where you can view the specific rooms inside the palace. It was very interesting to see their chambers and living quarters. what would it be like to live in that era where women just stay inside their homes, sit for hours, read novels, weave laces?

hey there's me inside the palace grounds :)

SEOUL 2010 is a success! Thank you SkyTeam Flying Blue for the free flight! SEOUL I'M LOVING YOU~ Collapse )

i dont want to make this a regular fan account, because everybody's doing it already... besides, I could only remember Lee Donghae and Lee Hyukjae and how many times i screamed in this skinship- and fanservice- enduced concert. i left Araneta Coliseum with a nasty sore throat and a very joyful heart.

Super Junior's concert is anything-goes. I am actually quite surprised that by the middle of the concert, I am already very eager to see the next performance and i was laughing most of the time. I didn't watch any concert fancam prior to this one in Araneta so i really dont know what to expect. Though we've been doing this for so long, everything became fresh and exciting again. We've been so used to watching particular concerts, knowing what to expect beforehand. I'm not saying something is old or new but well, in the eyes and heart of someone else's true-red fan, the SuJu boys gave me something to smile and laugh about again. They made me remember how fun it used to be, and how fun it should really be. That it was never about heartaches, there were more fun moments to cherish too. They made me remember the good times that I want to take back. About togetherness and being one on-stage. And I am thankful to Super Junior for making me realize this, while listening to Shining Star Live. (that inset of the members saying Saranghaeyo/Saranghamnida to ELFs made me cry painful tears). Thank you for giving me and my friends a good time watching you perform. you made me believe again, of rainbows after the storm, of pajama parties and that babies can win against puffy diva dragons.

i'll go back to my emo dongbang fandom after my sujucon withdrawal, til we meet again. and if anyone can tell me that specific line in one of their wall videos saying "aside from being a "super junior" that you usually call me, there's another me that i keep"... i think that line is so beautiful. <3

everyone's targeting better seats now for SS3. and i am one of them. ha! i hope this pushes through huh! Rata-Rata Araneta again! i'll be there somewhere in front waving my EunHae banners for Eunhyuk-anchovy and Donghae-fish to see and show me some fantastic yongwonhi service. i'll be one happy tinapa.

i am never wrong with these things ^^ Donghae pwned every nuna i know. you win for life. :D
