YAB: Hyung-nim is hot

Breaking and Entering

Things I am looking for, oh mighty flist:

- Nicholas Teo singing "Little Turtle" from Smiling Pasta
- S.H.E.'s Boom Boom Boom (actually, anything S.H.E., but that song in particular)
- Big Bang stuff - i have a random assortment of songs, but...i need more
- G-Dragon stuff, because i need help omg
- MBLAQ, because they're hilariously lulzy
- clearly, i need more asian ladies on my playlists. please to be helping? i like upbeat stuff. I like S.H.E. and 2NE1, if that helps at all.
- anything else you want me to listen to for whatever reason


Otherwise, what I have been doing:

I got sucked into Big Bang a couple of weekends ago. I blame uisceros and this post, and biases, primarily. I can now recognize almost everyone 95% of the time.

I find G-Dragon alternately hot and 12. it's disconcerting.

It makes me grin like an idiot every time T.O.P. spells his name in a song, and I think it's "Always" where they say, "Bang 'em," but everytime I hear it I have to laugh and clap my hands in sheer joy.

I downloaded some icons. i was looking for G-Dragon, but ended up with several of Young Bae. um..oops? So, if you have links or whatever to additional icons of Big Bang awesomeness, please to share.

also, send help, i cant stop listening to Garu Garu GO! and the Japanese version of Baby, Baby.

I watched You're Beautiful, and while the first several episodes were cringe inducing in entirely too many spots, once the show really got going, it was fairly awesome. it's crack, of course, because HELLO, it's a show about a nun crossdressing to join a boyband, but there is also a lot of sweetness and a lot of truth underneath the insanity.

Tae Kyung is amazingly wonderful, completely uptight, totally anal, and a SERIOUSLY good guy underneath all the repression and mommy issues. i really liked that he never denied his feelings. yes, it took him a while to figure it out, but once he got that he did like her, he didn't avoid it. and there wasnt any of the "I WILL DENY OUR LOVE TO PROTECT YOU" from either side, which was awesome.

Mi Nam/Mi Nyu was as dumb as a brick for a while, but once she started sticking up for herself a little bit, i liked her SO much more. and i could wave away a lot of her stupidity by her being very sheltered and joining the convent as that seemed like the most logical place for her to go.

the fact that all three of the guys loved Mi Nam/Mi Nyu was annoying as crap, but mentally it has lead to happy places where the real Mi Nam and Shin Woo experience porn in several ways, so hey! it's all good! the real Mi Nam was pretty fucking awesome, too, and I loved that how they did the reveal! I wish we had seen more of him!


again, additional icons would be lovely. links?



Well I have all of Big Bang's discography (GD and YB's solos included), uploaded and ready to go. I'll PM you with links.

I also have S.H.E's complete discography, MBLAQ's mini album (OMG they ARE lulzy... I cannot get over how awesome/ridiculous the MV for "Oh Yeah" is!), and I can also make a playlist of girl-group awesomeness. This, however, will take a bit of time, since they're not uploaded...

As for icons, you can check bangingraphics and vip_icontest.

CLEARLY I am the harbinger of DOOOOOOM Big Bang. I've got so many under my spell.... *cackles*
i am still boggling over the sheer amount of links and songs you just sent and omg i can now spend the next several days listening to nothing but asian music and never listen to a repeat!
YESSSSS BIG BANG FOREVERRRR. They're the only boy group I ever obsessed over. It looks like uisceros already provided you with everything you need so I won't bother but yeah, you're in luck, almost EVERYONE who listens to Kpop loves Big Bang so you can find icons etc. everywhere.

GDragon is a wonder to behold. I can't believe I find him sexy(the height! the fashion! the hair!) and yet he's so incredibly charismatic that I can't help it.
i was perfectly happy with just my obsession over Arashi, but NO, here comes Big Bang being awesome and ridiculous and wearing weird clothes with fabulous hair and omg my life. *cries*
Oh, fuck.

Little Turtle

. . . will be back with more. Possibly even MUCH MUCH more.

Perhaps I should PM you with the rest? Sharing stuff you get off of music rotation comms is a *bad* thing.

it's possible i should have thought this post through more, as i now have approximately 40 billion new songs to listen to, organize, and pet lovingly. *boggles*

thank you for the ladies! and for Little Turtle!
Hee! I saw this post and went "...!!!!!!"

uisceros is your best bet for Big Bang, obviously, but you may be getting a MU upload notification from me about them.

I'm also sending you my entire collection of S.H.E songs. And! A random mix of Asian ladies. I usually have *at least* a single of any given artist in the folder you'll be receiving, so if anything catches your attention, feel free to give me a shout.

And then I'll have to see what I have on my laptop. Hmm. . .
OOOH, I'm going to steal your CJSH links as well - I keep seeing their name being bandied about when people are talking about awesome girlgroups (and I know you've recced them to me on several occasions).

My boyband fu is steadily increasing, but I really need to work on my girlband knowhow. Equal opportunities for the sexes!
CSJH are indeed awesome. They weren't promoted very well, and have been on hiatus for a couple of years. There are rumours about a comeback, but. . .

I got into kpop for the girlgroups. I've picked up a few boybands along the way, but I'm still more likely to download an unknown female artist than a male one.

Then I actually read your post. It is SO hard to find good YAB icons, it makes me cry (I guess I am just really picky though). Tae Kyung is such a fabulous diva, he made me laugh so many times with his bitchyness and everything. AND THE SCENE AT THE MALL. WHERE THEY IMITATE THEIR ENDORSEMENTS. Priceless.
Shin Woo started out okay and because a bit too much of a doormat and too fond of the idea of ~being~ in love than actually manning up and finally confess and finally getting somewhere (or even have a chance to because all this dancing around special occasions and nothing happening was frustrating as fuck) - not that he ever had a chance against TK/MN, they were just to good together. THE FANCLUB QUIZ. OMGGGGGG.

I love this series. It is my happy place.


Seconding the kpop_uploads rec, that's where I get most of my musics from.

Okay, kpop...Big Bang are the gateway for a lot of people. I can say this as a recent kpop convertee - their stuff (and by extension, kpop) is so what I want, all dancey and layered, with raps and dance breaks and background noises, and it's kind of hard for me to go back to jpop now because in comparison, the Japanese stuff feels a little flat. (This is just a random observation by me, but the way, I don't mean to be all KPOP IS THE BESTEST but I'm just so surprised that most of their stuff is so in tune with my music desires and that I didn't realise this until recently!)

Another favourite - 2PM. They're the ones I'm doing my current spate of picspams on, and you can check out their singles as I post each picspam or if you want stuff straight away I can send you links and recs (maybe 10 songs in total, you seem to be getting flooded with links!)

My current other loves are the newish boyband Beast, and I like them so much I may have written fic about them. I wrote it for a friend and I'm still dithering over whether I should post it because it's kpop and rpf fic and my skills are pretty rusty and argh. But I thought I should tell you about this anyway because THAT is how much I like these boys. With most bands (even Big Bang) there are songs I find hit and miss, but so far Beast has released 2 mini-albums and I love every single song on them.

In terms of icon makers, what are you after? I prefer clean, crisp images with closeups of faces and minimal text, but some people like bright colours, smaller images, backgrounds/text etc. I went on an icon binge recently so I'd advise checking my userpics, but a couple of comms I can remember off the top of my head would be colony, cherrybeam and teacloud. All the kpop iconmakers seem to know each other so you can play follow-the-commenter and wind up on other good icon comms as well.

FINALLY (long comment is long!) I'm glad you enjoyed You're Beautiful, I did too! It was just such a fun way to spend 16 hours, and I loved all the characters (but especially Tae Kyung). ♥
Are you interested in any other Nicholas Teo or just the Little Turtle song someone already got you? I have everything.
ooh. more Nick would always be nice!
