The amazing thing about this group is that you can be half out of the fandom and kind of yeah well this doesn't apply to me anymore cos it's, you know. I've better things to do, like read a book (not that I am saying anything against books, okay, just that they're a completely different sort of pleasure), and then BAM you go watch their concert just because they're here and you know that Super Shows are always fun, and BAM BAM BAM you're pulled straight back in like you put a foot into quicksand.

They're just so absolutely fantastic at tugging at your heartstrings, making you want to cry, instigating you to laugh and scream ridiculous things at them like: "GET IT SUNGMIN", and dressing up as Marilyn Monroe and Britney Spears and Steve Jobs and still managing to look madly adorable. And I mean, if you're able to look adorable in a black turtleneck, jeans and a creepy centre parting while chomping on apples, you've got a mad talent, just saying.

Also, OUR LOVE. I'm dying to find a fancam of it on the second day because it was the most stunning moment I've ever encountered in concert. All the factors just culminated together (despite the lack of EunHae, which I'm still bewildered over cos, I mean, no EunHae during Our Love?! The world, it is collapsing!): 1) Almost every single fan in the stadium holding up red hearts, 2) the absolutely gorgeous remix and musical interlude, 3) the video of their debut days and first concert, 4) the boys all hugging each other, 5) the fans singing one verse unaided, 6) Teukie and Shindong both crying. It was a gorgeous moment. I can't even begin to describe it. Certainly it's not on the musical level as say, X Japan, but it doesn't really have to be because it was so emotional and you just wanted to bawl and be all, aww my boys look how far you've come and despite all the members leaving and leopard prints and fishnets and music videos in a box - YOU'RE STILL HERE SINGIN' TO US.

The opening, too, was kind of...stunning to say the least. With the stadium waving the glittery blue lightsticks (okay, so Sapphire Blue Ocean is not the most mature name around but the effect is still very beautiful) and the stage all flashing red and the boys coming out silhouetted against the red light and...SUPER JUNIOR, THE LAST MEN STANDING! God it was dynamite! It was goosebumpy! It was screamy! It was - OH MY GOODDDD LOOK AT THEMMM THEY'RE SO PRECIOUS AND ARROGANT AND DESERVEDLY SO! And BAM BAM all the greatest hits came rolling out one by one, Twins, A Man in Love, Opera, Don't Don, Rokkugo, etc.etc. and you're like okay so what if they have an average age of 27.5 years and are thus considered a step before being fossils in the Museum of Kpop, THEY CAN MOVE. AND THEY CAN MAKE YOU MOVE, OH YES THEY CAN.

All the solos rocked out, Kyuhyun with his beautiful harmonica rendition of "Isn't She Lovely", Henry with his Bruno Mars (I LOVE BRUNO MARS), Hyukjae with his SAY-MY-NAME (and you'll always be Lee Hyukjae, stay that way, you couldn't be more fabulous if you were Brad Pitt - actually you would be older and graying with a little belly so.), Sungmin with his girl-grinding, everything was so - for lack of a better word, wonderful! They just make you smile and sing and dance and chant along. And of course, Oppa Oppa. BEST CONCERT SONG EVER EXCEPT FOR ROKKUGO. Says something that it got HALF A STADIUM OF SOUTH-EAST ASIAN GIRLS ROCKING OUT. Cos we're South-East Asians, and we're as slitty-eyed (well actually SE-Asians have pretty big eyes) and poker-faced as they come. You do not get us out of our seats easily. We have special butt glue that keep us stuck to our seats. And yet half the stadium got up and bounced and screamed OPPA!

The ridiculous antics and getting splashed by jets of water and the cheesy pick-up lines ("Everytime we come to Singapore, we're amazed at how beautiful the country is. But even more beautiful, are the fans. What do they eat to make them so beautiful?"), the comebacks ("CRAB!"), the silly bantering ("I want to do this for ten hours." "....YOU DO IT YOURSELF."), the bowing, the gratitude, the interaction, the acknowledgement of fan projects, the always-on understanding of what fans want and the sincerity in wanting to please their fans and put on the best show (cos, I mean, FOUR HOURS AND JETS OF WATER HITTING THEIR CROTCHES).

I love this group and I will sing my heart out for them, and I will wave my little blue lightstick (that says 'Donghae' because it's the only stick I have that works - um), and I will clap till my hands are sore and scream "SARANGHAEYO <insert name>" during Our Love. That's all. ♥

Because this cracked [ profile] thundersquall and I up so much, it deserves to be shared with everyone too :D (mostly Singaporeans, though, since I'm not sure how much a non-Singaporean would understand) but anyway:

Super Junior as Singaporean Boyfriends

And yes, they pretty much fail...very badly. Except for Siwon and Sungmin.

So, Super Junior as Singaporean boyfriends in various scenarios! Written by both me and [ profile] thundersquall :D

On Going to the Beach to Watch a Movie Screening


You: Let's go to the beach tomorrow, there's a free screening of Ice Age.
Kyuhyun: …what for?!
You: It'll be fun!
Kyuhyun: …just download it lah!


You: Let's go to the beach tomorrow, there's a free screening of Ice Age.
Kibum: Okay.
You: It'll be so much fun!
Kibum: Yup. Okay. If you want to go lor.


You: Let's go to the beach tomorrow, there's a free screening of Ice Age.
Donghae: OMG OKAY!!!! :DDDD!
You: We can bring like, beehoon and stuff!


You: Let's go to the beach tomorrow, there's a free screening of Ice Age.

Ryeowook: Okay! I will make beehoon, curry chicken, fried chicken, nuggets, fried rice, …what else ar? Oh yeah, can bring fruits too for dessert, eh I go NTUC buy strawberries to eat with cream hehe.

Kangin: Some more sure got the cheebye mosquito one.
You: But I really want to go leh…
Kangin: okokokokoklah. Wah lau eh. I call my kaki come along.


Heechul will not go.

And more of this macabre ridiculousness )

I am sort of struggling to breathe. That introduction is the single most perfect thing ever. These guys, why are they like this?

Also, I kind of love how the intro is basically saying: STEP ASIDE BITCHES, THIS IS SUPER JUNIOR. YOU WILL LOOK AT US. AND YOU WILL WORSHIP US.

Me: ...Okay! :D /whipped

Edited to add:

So SHINee's Lucifer performance with f(x) in the SBS Gayo Daejun was epic to the most epic degree. Intense and sexy and passionate and if it does not blow your mind, your mind must be made of steel or something.

SHINee, you may still be babies but hell you have more boss on stage than groups twice as seasoned. This is one of the best performances I've seen since entering Asian idol fandom. (and how pretty is Victoria?)
So I'm finally back from Nanjing and somewhat ready to make a concert report, though warnings in advance that my memory is sketchy and mixed up and I did not, horrors, recognise many of the songs in the SS3 set list. Trawling through the labelled fancams for the Beijing concert sort of helped in identifying some of the encore songs but does not help make me feel any better about not recognising so many songs (the set list for SS3 is so weird, okay?).

And with this, I commence the crazy Nanjing concert report of doom. )
Suju's Saturday night schedule for the next 5 weeks-

Saturday, 8/14 – 8/15 Super Show 3 in Seoul
Saturday, 8/21 – 2010 SMTOWN Concert in Seoul
Saturday, 8/28 – Super Show 3 in Qingdao, China
Saturday, 9/4 – 2010 SMTOWN Concert in L.A
Saturday, 9/11 – 2010 SMTOWN Concert in Shanghai

Four cities, five concerts, two timezones and thousands of miles in slightly over a month, in addition to their regular radio programmes, variety show appearances, and early morning dance/gym sessions on weekdays. This is so crazy. I foresee more hospital IV drips D:

And then a rumour about Kibum coming back to the group? I find that really hard to believe :| SJ's not really doing group activities anymore except the concerts, unless of course they're starting their own show, if which I will probably go into hysterics of joy and spam twitter about a hundred times within an hour. Have been binging on Strong Heart, KBS Nocturnal and Star King and just. SJ fully lives up to their 'kings of variety' reputation. I really, really want them to be the main guests on a show without girl groups or 20398 MCees, just them doing their own thing and being silly and witty and hilarious and ironic and making fun of each other all over the place. And um, I want to full body cuddle Donghae because he's probably the most adorable thing ever to breathe oxygen. Somewhat.

Speaking of which, if you haven't already, do check out the Suju as animals drabble!fest (a.k.a. I say mew and you say moo) that I started half a week ago. Squeals and 'aww's' over the cute in simply everything are guaranteed. You know you want to read Suju being cows and puppies and chickadees and penguins and hamsters :D

Meeting [ profile] teexsaurus, [ profile] amaelamin_ and [ profile] thundersquall tomorrow for some heart to heart. Looking forward to it very much ♥

Three weeks left of work. *__* I swear once it's all over I'm going to sack out at the airport for days and just a head's up to anyone who might want to find me, go to Starbucks at T2, I'll be there.

And I love you so, Hyukjae ♥

One of these days I'm going to picspam EunHae in a post hopefully as epic as the Pin post that [ profile] myxstorie linked.
Back to the k-pop meme after stressing it out over NEWS :) 

I'm doing five categories today! Because there are two categories wherein I have no input.

Day 5: Your favorite k-pop song from your favorite guy group

Individually, it's Kyuhyun's 7 Years of Love, and unofficially, it's their Sukira cover of Butterfly Graveyard. But! :D 

Because it is fierce and absolutely mind-blowingly stunning.

Honorable mentions to: Heartquake, Boom Boom, Mirror, Neorago.

four more categories, I am productive, quite. )
catskilt: (shindong :D)


The choreography is meh but holy fuck they look so good. THEY LOOK SO GOOD A;LSDKASLK

AM STILL THINKING OF WAYS TO MOLEST HYUK'S MOUTH IN THE APPROPRIATE WAY IT NEEDS TO BE MOLESTED. AFTER THAT, I'LL GET ON TO DONGHAE'S ARMS. Am also exploding slowly but surely from the hip thrusts. GDI they are so deliberate and intended to impregnate and ;aldskjlkj Hyuk knows how to work those hips, okay. He is adept at it. He is expert.

Shindong. I love Shindong's part towards the end and everything about Shindong in this video. And Kyuhyun. I am so stoked that he is in the dance break. Wook has the most gorgeous cheekbones ever and it CONTOURS with the swinging lamp, lmao. There isn't enough Sungmin but whatever Sungmin I can see is gorgeous.

I have to admit that watching it in LQ for the first time did absolutely nothing for me but I am so, so much happier with the HD. See, rule of life: It's much easier to fangirl when you can see them properly in all their unf :D

I shall continue obsessively replaying the hip thrusts and dance break. On that note, am so happy that they included a dance break because it lifts up the meh of the general choreography.

Also have to throw in a word about how we were all freaking out at 11am KST when the video didn't come out. This is probably the first time I've ever sat around and waited for a stupid music video to be released, lmfao.
catskilt: (highly approved)

....this is amazing. It really is ♥

Speaking of Bonamana, I seem to be liking the song more with every replay. It is really catchy and bouncy. The only problem is that whenever it ends, Ring Ding Dong is what gets stuck in my head, not Bonamana.

Also, I can't imagine them in punk chains and spikes with this song. More like coconut trees and the seaside and gyrating girls in bikinis. I would like to ask SME what exactly all that punk and goth was for.

At least this eliminates any possibility of vampires?

(I wouldn't mind gyrating Suju)
catskilt: (heechul is fabulous)

Aside from the massive fangirling over OH MY GODDDD THEY'RE ALMOST BACK I am so extremely amused at K-pop's way of handling 'comebacks'.

In JE, what we get as teasers are email notifications from CD Japan, tiny little single covers from the official site and then the song played on a radio show a couple of days before the official PV and performance on Music Station.

In K-pop. Or at least SME. OR Super Junior, because they're apparently too big to have actual MV/song teasers, we get members hinting about the new album three months in advance. Tons of rumours flying around about their new concept (zombies? vampires? pastry chefs?). Photos from a stylist that don't reveal too much. Fanclubs banding together to donate money for 'food and PR support'. Fan-made trailers. Suju trending on twitter about 298 times. Then a couple of official pictures released showing their va-va-voom new image. THEN a teaser that says NOTHING but throws shadows everywhere to the sound of epic movie-trailer-ish background music. Ending off with a deep voice saying "Super Junior. ComeBAAAAAAAAACK." (I'm going to be imitating this for months). A specific date and time set for the release of the new song: 10 May, 10am.

Oh, K-pop. It's like watching a summer blockbuster and afternoon soap opera all rolled into one.


And I kind of like how it's just. Super Junior - The Fourth Album. LMAO. We don't need names for our albums, bitches. (Actually, there are names, only nobody ever notices because, you know. We don't need names bitches!!)

I should stop making fun of it. I love this fandom for all its drama, really ♥ I will love it even more if they'll stop blocking Hyukjae's face out.

...Also, I love how Donghae, Heechul and Teuk are tweeting back and forth. It reminds me of the JE Twitter fic that [ profile] gothicauthor and I wrote except that the guys are different. ad;slkj keep tweeting away, lovelies :D



Donghae's puppy eyes. Baengshin's paw on his face. HaeChul. Heechul's fluffy hair.


...I want to molest Hae's beyond adorable face ;_; I mean, seriously, even cats want to.

More catty talk...

Leeteuk: I usually return to the dorm at night, and everybody is out but there would be the cat. The cat always ignores me, and I would say, “Hey, you come over here.” When I say this, the cat will run away and I would chase after it, and make it sit down. “You sit down, hyung has something to say. Aren’t you tired? Hyung is also very tired.” Although it doesn’t speak, I could feel that he understood me.

- Sukira transcript, Source: Kim Seohye’s CY, Translation: (L) @ SJ-WORLD.NET

The image of Teuk talking to Heebum or Baengshin  and getting ignored is kind of really cute ;_;

That said, one more day till freedom. And then it's full of [ profile] where_wordsfail[ profile] trivialaffair and [ profile] ununoriginal goodness *___* Can't wait, I miss you guys so much <3 (though yes we met only a week ago but still. I MISS YOU ANYWAY.  AND I HOPE YOU MISS ME TOO.) 

First, I watch this aged video of Heechul, Kangin and Sungmin on Tablo's Dream Radio where Heechul recs FT Island's 'Until You're Back', and emo as it is, I fall in love with the song immediately because god, it is gorgeous. The opening, the singing, the guitar playing, the rapping, the's so addictive and catchy and beautiful that I immediately downloaded two of FT Island's albums just to get more of their sound. Which is why everyone has to listen to it too, or watch this brilliant performance, or you know, both, because it deserves attention.

Also, Hongki really looks like Jiro Wang in this. For real. If they'd sung in Chinese instead, I would've thought it was Jiro Wang. Which is good? Because Jiro is hot?

And then Heechul tweets and cyworlds about Hangeng and I am crying inside because idek, it hurts to be reminded of it. Usually I am okay with Hangeng's absence, but damn when something like that happens I miss him sfm and hate him for making me miss him and making Heechul emo and then I remember his ridiculous contract and I don't know what to think.

I shall just...stop being conflicted and listen to FT Island being emo instead.

...Come to think of it, the song title is really appropriate!
catskilt: (hyuk in shock)




....that had better not be the final product of his looks. NO WAY IN HELL.

on the other hand, the others are looking pretty good. )

catskilt: (hyuk smiling)
It's Eunhyuk's birthday. I realise that I'm posting really late about it. (By the time I'm done with this post, it may not even be his birthday anymore)

Probably everyone on my long-suffering flist who has been regularly (or even irregularly) following this lj will know that he's my ultimate bias in Suju. That, despite me being a sucker for every member and probably able to write a thesis for each of them (except, well, Kibum, because he's imaginary); still, my love for Eunhyuk is ridiculous and insane and not quite understandable even to myself :|

He's simply one of the silliest, goofiest, craziest guys in the whole of the idol sphere. He does the most retarded things (or he gets stuck doing the most retarded things, which is an entirely different matter), he gets made fun of ceaselessly because Eunhyuk being made fun of balances the world, he's got the dorkiest dorkface and he's skinnier than a beanpole and his gums show when he smiles. He's a walking, falling, giggling definition of dork. He cries when he gets emotional (and he's emotional a lot), he gets lost at an airport (and has to be rescued by fans), he gets nicknames like Monkey and Anchovy, he has to dress up as Snow White (retarded things, yes), he sets his own sleeve on fire from candles on a cake, and he gets his pants pulled off the most.

He's also snarky and witty and sarcastic and clever. He's got fantastic comedic timing and his imagination is to be revered. He makes dancing look like it's part of himself, like he puts in no effort at all even though you know it's the product of over ten years of hard training. He's friends with the world. He's stunning on stage. He's amazingly sexy and he has a beautiful face with a gorgeous jawline. He has a sense of humour. He's always willing to do retarded things. He raps like he's rhythm.

In short: the universe kind of hates Hyukjae, but it loves him more.


Because he can move his hips like that, this is the massive Lee Hyukjae picspam post of obsession love and appreciation. In parts, even.

Oh! Hyukjae!  )

catskilt: (shindong :D)
shindong: eunhyuk-ah~ why did you do that the other time? that time you said you were gonna go to the supermart, & i asked you to help me buy an air freshener. the next day, when i met you at our dorm, i asked you where's the air freshener? & you said, you didn't know what flavor i wanted so you didn't buy, but in the end you bought seven different flavors for yourself.


ryeo: eunhyuk hyung~ everytime we finish practicing/training it'll be 5AM. once we get back to our dorm, he'll go to his own room & lock the door. he has a room to himself, & whenever i wanna go into his room & chat with him, the door's locked. when i call him, the line will be engaged. what exactly do you do?
kyu: eunhyuk hyung doesn't sleep at night. i dunno what he does & who he does it with, but it'll be morning when he sleeps.
ryeo: from what i know, he usually sleeps at 7AM. i dunno what he does for those two hours.
shindong: smelling his seven air fresheners.


kangin: i also wanna say, this time isn't kyuhyun back? really wanna thank him, & also those that have cared about him.
kyu: can i also say something?
kangin: no, hyung is talking, be quiet.

all translated by fragment @ soompi

This is the only way Kangin can pull rank over Kyuhyun because otherwise he and everyone knows he's just mush when it comes to Kyu XD
lsdkjcfkljh back from the Suju concert. Oh my god. I feel like I've never given them the adequate amount of love they deserve because they are so amazing. They interacted so much with the audience and picked up gifts strewn on the stage and unwrapped presents and put on silly headbands and played with toys and THEY ALL LOOKED SO FUCKING GORGEOUS IN THE FLESH, IT'S SURREAL A;DLKJCALSDJ

The only complaint I have is that Eunhyuk was hardly ever on my side except at the end, but oh my god the HyukHae was happening everywhere. Crystal, you would have died along with me. THE VERY LAST MOMENT OF THE CONCERT, DONGHAE AND HYUK WERE THE ONLY ONES LEFT ON STAGE AND HAE WAS BLOWING KISSES TO THE AUDIENCE AND HYUK WAS ALL "WHAT ABOUT ME?!" AND HAE KISSED HIS HAND AND SLAPPED IT ON HYUK'S MOUTH AND I SORT OF WENT, THANK YOU OTP THIS IS WHAT I CAME HERE FOR /promptly collapses

Speaking of Donghae, he was over at my side so much and seriously, this guy is just drop dead gorgeous. He was wearing his black wifebeater at one point and I could see the line of muscles on his chest, and then he flashed this big wide smile at everybody and I might or might not have screamed my head off. I screamed my head off for pretty much everyone, though. Siwon, Yesung, Sungmin (!!!!), Heechul, Ryeowook, Shindong were on my side a lot and oh my god Sungmin is utterly fuckingly perfect and dripping with adorability. Shindong was total entertainment and I was so pleased that everyone was shrieking for him because I swear he does not get enough love. Hyuk did finally deign to come over at the end and I think I should stop here because MY MIND WAS COMPLETELY BLOWN HOW CAN A MAN BE SO GORGEOUS IN EVERYTHING AND FROM ANY ANGLE A;SLDJA;SLDCF;LAJD

This is a brief summary XD [ profile] trivialaffair, [ profile] htenywg, [ profile] towa_no_imi, possibly [ profile] ununoriginal and I are going to team up to make a fan report to end all fan reports :D

So very blissful now, despite sore throat and semi-blocked nose :D
So. First this happens. 

Hair is instantly hidden under various forms of headgear

And then Donghae decides to be a bff and join in the schoolboy look. 

It actually looks really good on him. Probably the hairdresser liked him a little better. 

And then this happens. 

And I'm like. OKAY I GET THE IDEA ALL OF YOU WANT TO LOOK LIKE BOYS XD a side note, I'm noticing their ears a lot now. It is fascinating.
What I’m aiming for is to step forward into Korea!
My “Korea Boom” is, as usual, continuing. It’s been 1 and a half months since I’ve started learning Korean but recently when I went to Korea for the first time in half a year, I could read all the characters on the signs! I’m thinking that someday I’d want to cross over that line from Japan to Korea in regards to things like music and dramas and entertainment and so now, to be able to achieve that, I’m practising my Korean everyday.
- Koyama

Looking for the phantom seasoning
Lately Korean movies are passionate! Especially the movie “utsusemi” left an impact on me. Within a 1 hour 30 minute story, the main character didn’t even have 1 line. The heroin only had 1 line, “I love you*”. Despite that, it was done really well! And also I’ve been looking at other works by the director, Kim Ki-duk, and I’ve been watching a wide variety of Korean movies. Up until now I hadn’t watched anything but Japanese films. . it was unexpected to me though. And then, this time I’ve started to grow an interest in the country of Korea itself and recently me and Koyama went along with a mutual acquaintance of ours.
- Shige

Both quotes taken from this translation

KoyaShige have become Korean fanboys, yo.

I feel so proud of them ;___; XD

I should scheme about sending them a DVD of the full season of Explorers of the Human Body; I think they'd really appreciate it :D

Super Junior. is in an entire class of their own. :DDDDDDD And no yes I am possibly probably maybe replaying this about ten times before I go to sleep tonight. My brain has splintered.

alsdkjhlkjh a better update next time, I promise.
