Topics I've Started

Akdong Musician (AKMU; 악동뮤지션)

07 May 2014 - 02:03 AM

Akdong Musician is a Korean sibling duo signed to YG Entertainment with a style best described as a blend of pop and folk. They made their debut on the audition show K-Pop Star in 2012 and won, becoming very popular even when they were just contestants. They just made their official debut last month with their first album, PLAY.
In my opinion, these guys are amazing. I mean it, even if you think that you don't like K-Pop, I still highly recommend you check them out because they are just that great!
Lee Chan Hyuk is the brother. He is 17 years old and writes the lyrics to and composes all of their songs as well as providing vocals and guitar. Lee Soo Hyun is the sister. She only just turned 15 years old a few days ago and she provides the main vocals as well as percussion. They are so young and so talented, it's amazing!
1st Studio Album - PLAY
Released: April 7th, 2014
  1. Give Love
  2. 200%
  3. Eoreumdeul (얼음들; Melted)
  4. Jihacheoleseo (지하철에서; At the Subway)
  5. Gareuma (가르마; Parted Hair)
  6. Ingongjandi (인공잔디; Artificial Grass)
  7. Annyeong (안녕; Hi)
  8. Jageunbyeol (작은별; Little Star)
  9. Girina (길이나; Path)
  10. Sojae (소재; Subject)
  11. Galaxy
In the tracklist above I have linked to audio-only YouTube videos that include lyrics! I highly suggest you pay attention to them, some of them are really witty and just plain great. I love the lyrics to "Artificial Grass" especially. Their lyrics (and their music in general) has an air of innocence about them that I adore.
I have had this album on loop for the past several days and haven't gotten tired of it at all! I like all of the songs but my personal favorites are Give Love, 200%, Artificial Grass, Subject (although I prefer the live acoustic ver.), and Galaxy.
Here are the music videos for Melted, 200%, and Give Love!
Give Love's music video is a continuation of 200%'s. You can understand most of it from just watching (it's really cute!) but for those that don't know Korean, in the music video for Give Love it is revealed that the girl who Soo Hyun thought was the cute tall guy's girlfriend is actually her brother (because the text she receives from him says 'Mom said to come home for dinner')!
I hope you enjoy the Akdong Musician cuties! They have other songs that were released during K-Pop Star but I'm too lazy to link right now, haha.

Synopsis (from Drama Fever)

Popular Japanese actor, Matsuda Shota (Boys Over Flowers), stars in this picturesque and unique medical drama about a traveling doctor who can't seem to separate business from pleasure. A genius in his field, Sezaki Kota's strengths are undermined by his character flaws, namely his tendency to fall in love instantly with beautiful women. Keeping him in line is Nurse Togami Mako (Takei Emi), a former delinquent now dedicated to helping the less fortunate. Will Kota find his bride-to-be waiting on an upcoming island, or could his true love be the woman he hasn't fallen for?

The scene is set in the town of Yume (Dream) city. Due to financial difficulties, the town is in the process of merging with another city, meanwhile turning into a garbage disposal facility. The formerly prosperous town was referred to as the "Town of Songs", represented by the music hall, now torn down and in ruins.
Returning from New York having performed on Broadway, Kurasaka Mio was born and brought up in this city of dreams. Upon finding out the state the city, she stands up together with a group of mothers in a chorus group called "The Chansons" to bring the city back to life.
Mio is a dropout musical star, attending auditions on Broadway until her agent tells her that there are no more auditions available for her to attend. The one and only time she got through an audition was for a substitute role.
On the other hand, Isaka Chuko is the mayor's daughter and also is a housewife, who struggles to rebuild "The Chansons". While her father tries to go through with the merging of cities, she rivals Mio, who disposes of the old concept behind chorus' in attempt to incorporate a show choir into the routine. Chuko sticks to tradition and will not let Mio have her way without confrontation.
A super positive musical comedy, Mio and Chuko team up to chase their dreams together with the chorus girls. --Fuji TV


Correlation Chart:

I really like this drama so far! It's being subtitled and is available to watch on mysoju as well as available for download via torrent on d-addicts as well as here on H!O. Also, it has Oshima Yuko of AKB48 in it which is always a plus :) She is, in my opinion, AKB's best actress.

Anyone else been watching this drama? What are your thoughts? I've only just finished the second episode.

~Chimai's Graphics Haven~

09 July 2011 - 04:58 PM



Well, I've decided to open up my graphics thread! I figured that opening a thread was a good way to improve and get feedback!

Most of the textures and brushes I use come from swimchick.net and deviantart~

I just have a few simple things that are really common sense:

~ If you use any of my graphics, please remember to give me credit!
~ I accept non-H!P graphics requests as well (J-Pop and K-Pop only), but note that I don't listen to a lot of K-Pop groups or Boy groups, so it would be preferable if you be as detailed as you like with these, especially if you want any names on the graphic.
~ Please don't bash any idols on this thread! All idols and idol groups will be respected on my thread.
~ If you request something, please be patient! Especially during the school year, I can be busy and might not get to your request right away.

The Hello! Project x AKB48 Thread

19 June 2011 - 03:39 AM

I wasn't sure where to put this (H!P section or AKB section) but I decided to put it here! I hope that's okay!

This thread is for those awesome H!PxAKB moments that happen sometimes... there are tons of them!

No bashing of H!P or AKB here! Only nice words about the girls, please. :)

I could name many, but I'll start out with the most recent one I found that I'm sure most people know about by now!

At 0:40 Kanyon says "FRESH ICHIGO NI NARITAI NO~" which is a reference to something that AKB48 Team 4 member Ichikawa Miori (Also called Fresh Lemon because of her love for lemons) says all the time:

"Fresh Lemon ni naritai no~!"

I found it so awesome and funny that Kanyon did it! It's too bad she had some bashing because of it. Stupid.

Anyways, want to share some other awesome H!PxAKB moments?
