Happy New Year (With a Little Help From Rain)!

I hope everyone has/had a great, safe time tonight and that the coming year will be filled with nothing but good things.

One of my New Year resolutions, as I mentioned a few days ago, is to post daily.  Another is to get a good following for this blog.  Hope they come true!

To celebrate the coming of 2012, I'm posting a few fancams of Rain from his Adieu concert held on December 31st, 2010.  That concert was an inadvertent birthday gift from Rain and the Clouds that posted up fancams so quickly it was almost like being there, even though I'm all the way on the other side of the world.  These videos bring back good memories so I thought I'd share them with you.

Let's count down with Rain:

Hope you have as much fun as Rain did that night!

Happy New Year!!

SMentertainment Releases Promo For "I AM" Movie Biography

SMent released a promo today about the movie they're filming, called "I AM", which will be the story behind SMTOWN.  Anyone can enter a video for a chance to be included in the movie.  The video can be a dance or song cover, a message to an SM artist, or a cosplay video.



Sounds like so much fun right?  Love the idea and I can't wait to see the movie and enjoy everyone's videos.  Also wondering if that's Shinee's dorm at Key's part... I'm definitely checking out alllll those clothes behind the sliding glass doors and Minho and Taemin playing video games, not even paying attention to what's going on around them.

For more info on how to enter your video, go here: http://global.mnet.com/iam/ucc.m.

Do You Know One Of These Girls??

I know I'm all late but I find these videos to be extra funny.  I definitely know some of these women.  In fact I hear some of the comments in the second video on the daily at my job.

Shoe Porn, Early Spring Edition

So spring is here... in the fashion world, anyway.  I figured I'd entice, delight and tease you with some lovely gems that are hitting the stores already.  That I'd taunt you with the fact that it's cold/rainy/snowy outside and yet these beauties are waiting to be bought right now.  Unless you live in Cali, by the time you get around to thinking about buying spring shoes these styles will probably already be sold out.  Sigghhhh.

Video of the Day #2: 2AM Parodies Be My Baby

2am and the Wonder Girls


Lollll @ this!
2am doing Kara's "Step" and Wonder Girl's "Be My Baby" during rehearsals for their Christmas concert.
Hilarious!

I love how they're having so much fun doing this.  What cracked me up is how good they are at it and how they looked so serious until about 1:25 when Jinwoon (in orange) started being silly.  Changmin (in black) just looks too manly and muscular to be doing these steps but does it well anyway.  JoKwon (in white) is, as usual, doing those steps just perfectly.  He always makes me laugh when he does his kkab... heart him!  Seulong is good too.  They really do give good fan service, don't ya think?

I think I'm definitely going to have to pay more attention to 2am in the future.

Video of the Day: Jay Park Star

Just saw Jay Park's new video for the song "Star" and I really like it a lot.  Make sure to watch in full screen 1080p for maximum cuteness factor.

Enjoy!

Source: jaybumaom0425

What I love:  Well duhh... the dancing! Love Jay Park's musicality and moves... whoever choreographs his videos is extra good.  He also has the best crew dancing behind him and I could watch them dance all day.  I'm also liking the sets quite a bit.  It's not your typical Kpop set (side eyeing SM Entertainment right now) and it gives off a very warm vibe.   The song is also a well done American style RnB type slow jam and I have to say I'm loving the falsetto.  He's really good at seamlessly integrating that type of style into the Kpop world.

What I find slightly amusing:  The "Oops!  I didn't know I had coffee foam on my lips... oh wait.. Are you kissing me?" scene.  Kinda awkwarrrrddd.  It was probably supposed to look sexy and cute but really he ended up looking like a deer caught in headlights, like he's never been kissed before.  Pause it... Yep, go ahead.  I know you want to.  The wind blowing back the girl's hair but not his?  Priceless.

I'm looking forward to seeing him perform this in his comeback shows.  Hopefully he's put some more practice into singing well while dancing hard, as he struggled a bit with that during his "Abandoned" comeback shows.

Video of the Day: Jay Park Star Teaser

Well really... teaser of the day.
Just saw that this was posted up on Jay Park's YouTube page today and had to post it here so I could squee about it.  I'm quite excited that his new album "New Breed Part 1" will be coming out December 28th.  Cannot wait to see this whole video and hear the song!  Jay Park's dancing is just too good, PLUS he's a cutie... and he's looking all urban hotness in a fitted, a tee and baggy sweats.  :wipes brow:

Arm Parties and Other Things...

Sadly I haven't posted a thing to this blog in about 2 weeks... work and the holidays have conspired to make me one tired arse woman.  One of my New Years/birthday resolutions is to post something daily and hopefully I'll be able to stick to that.  I'm gonna try, that's for sure.

Anyway, if you don't know what an arm party is or haven't thrown an arm party, you should jump on that.  The term was coined by the Man Repeller , also known as Leandra Medine, and it refers to the art of stacking tons of bracelets/watches/bangles on one or both arms.  I've tried it before but I definitely had to take some inspiration from Leandra.

Last week I threw this party on my left arm:

l to r: 1st 3 Aldo, not sure, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs

Here are some other soirees that I found to be too cute for words:

Hopefully this post inspires you to throw a party of your own.   If so, let me know!

Lookbook Love

I love a good lookbook and in my opinion Shopbop puts together some of the best lookbooks you'll find.  I was particularly taken with one they put up yesterday called Bohemian Winter.

Take a look:

Loving the neutral palette and the chunky knits paired with flowy skirts.  I'd wear a version of these outfits in a heartbeat.  I often check out Shopbop.com for outfit inspiration and I always end up wanting to buy something, which isn't always a good thing.

Be sure to click here to check out the rest of the lookbook: shopbop.

Infinite's Christmas Carol

I'm not one to be into Christmas songs.  In fact, I only like three Christmas songs...otherwise they mostly make me want to scream.  However, I came across this one yesterday and was pleasantly surprised.  Partly this is because I think Infinite is adorable and I like all the songs they've promoted so far.  Partly because the mv is just too cute and the song is also pretty good, even though there's rapping in it (someone please tell Kpop that not every song has to have a rap in it!  I hear you saying that Hoya and DongWoo wouldn't have a part in the song if that were so... ok, ok, I take it back).

Please enjoy Infinite's White Confession (Lately):

Wrap it Up

I love, love, LOVE a good headwrap.  I went gaga over this pic of Solange Knowles and had to do a search on how to tie a wrap like that.


Fyi, I want that exact scarf.

I found this tutorial on how to tie fabulous headwraps on You Tube.  I'm dying to try some of these options.  I'm actually looking over my shoulder at my multiple scarves as I type.

Make sure you rock your wrap with major attitude and some funky platforms!

PHANTOM's "Hole In Your Face" Controversy

I saw the teaser for the group Phantom's first single, "Hole In Your Face" last week and my first reaction was shock.  I'll admit I'm not really fazed by gore or violence in movies or tv but this teaser was definitely a HUGE surprise.  Kpop prides itself on being more innocent and less sexy than American pop so for a Kpop group to debut with this sort of teaser was quite a call for attention.  They definitely have my attention.  
Here's the teaser: 




There was, of course, a general outcry so they decided to release a clean version:

You can tell how much hard work he put into boot camp training by the amount of weight he lost.  I'm sure I'm not the only Rain fan that's super proud of him.  Rain fighting!

Video of the Day: Wonder Girls Be My Baby



Saw this video last night and promptly decided it's the cutest thing ever.  I love the '60s vibe going on with the Bob Fosse-ish choreography, the black and white set and the extra cute dresses with fur trim. The choreography is adorable and easy to do and I expect to see a plethora of copycat fan videos all over You Tube.

The song is great too, and goes hand-in-hand with that '60s vibe... definitely makes me think of Martha and the Vandellas.  The rap is even good and goes really well with the song, which I was surprised about.  Everything about it puts a big smile on my face.  Great job, JYP and Wonder Girls!

Make sure to watch this on full screen in HD for the full experience.

Video of the Day: 2NE1 I Am The Best

I love me some Kpop but I will admit I am not into the girl groups as much as I am into the boy groups.  This is because most of the girl groups I've come across are too cutesy, using wayyyy too much "aegyo" (click here for the definition of aegyo and the perfect demonstration vid).  The male groups usually try to be manly, just maybe not neccessarily manly as it is defined here in the U.S.

When the video for "I Am The Best" by 2NE1 came out, I was pleasantly surprised by the song and the group because the whole package was fun, fierce and quirky instead of overly cutesy.  I'm all about fun, fierce and quirky and who wouldn't be?
