JYJ: Xia Junsu’s Tarantallegra Part 2

OMG. OMG. OMG

What a perfection. Junsu’s new MV, Tarantallegra really rocks my Monday!~

Tarantallegra. Daebak!!~

This song, composed and arranged by the man himself and the lyrics by JUNO, Junsu’s very own twin.

Talk about brotherhood. Great collaboration.

I decided to listened to the whole album first before posted this post..so I have been saving this post..for more than 3 days now. LOL. Above was written..on Monday and got mental block after that. Due to Junsu’s hotness. LOL.

Anyway..

Xia Junsu’s Tarantallegra. My humble review and opinion. I don’t talk music much, but pretty much on what I feel and heard. :). Let’s see… we got…

1. Sunset

This track..is kind of like..music introduction to the album and Tarantallegra song. What amazed me is..the mixing, the arrangement of the music..blends in perfectly. That strong beat sound..thumb..thumb..thumb..makes my thumping too. As the title of this track, Sunset, it suits perfectly with the overall feels of the song. Really genius..

2. Tarantallegra Featuring Flowsik of Aziatix

Now, I can typed the words correctly. LOL. As many know what the meaning of this word by now, let me enlighten you guys again. Tarantallegra is a jinx or spell for another person’s feet to dance uncontrollably. Oh wait! That is the definition from Harry Potter. Anyway…you get the rough idea right? Tarantella is a dance originating from Italy. Meanwhile, Allegra maybe derived from the word Allegro meaning quick and lively.

Okey…first…the MV. OMG! OMO! OMONA! I was…like facepalm myself for countless times. And the after effect of watching the MV, neck pain. Arrggghhhh!~ Junsu’s…really something.. The opening..shows Junsu and his dancers..looking sturdy, with stern face. Junsu’s strut, Junsu in red skirty outfit and Junsu as a lady. What?? OMG, I swear I don’t realized that lady in the MV was actually Junsu himself!~ He looks so pretty!~ Junsu’s really rock it in that MV.

Okey, the music. In my layman words..the music..is kind of strong beat sound in fusion with pop. Not typical K-Pop,SM kind of music. It is just so different that makes you want to humming all day long and wondering yourself whether you’re humming to an english or a korean songs. The chorus is so catchy, and make me want to corrected my pronunciation of Tarantallegra without missing the beat! LOL. Really not your typical K-Pop sound. Totally JYJ feel. Junsu’s way. 🙂 Additional with impressive rapping from Flowsik. A genius from group Aziatix. Complete the wholesome music. I really like the drums on the intro. Makes my heart thumping real fast! LOL

3. Set Me Free (Featuring Bizzy)

Hahahaha..the intro…got techno feel.rap greeting from Bizzy. His rapping in this song really makes me go..wow!~ Junsu..is awesome. Ballad or upbeat song, he can pull it off.

4. No Gain

Jaejoong’s very own baby. Oh wait! I think, if I remembered it clearly, Jaejoong sing this song during the fan meeting of their movie, The Day, right?? I think some genius fans out there realized this as well. I was just merely remembered after I read it somewhere. Anyway, this song..really got Jaejoong’s feel. I mean..in terms of awesome piano arrangement and the intro..maybe I’m delusional but somehow I feel that similarities or signature mark of Jaejoong’s composition. Coolness! This song is one of my favorite. 🙂 Jaejoong really knows how to exploit Junsu’s voice to make this song really irresistible and easy to the ears.

5. I Don’t Like Love 사랑이 싫다구요

I love this song! OMG I do! Don’t make start with this. Each time I listened to this song, I feel like crying. No..I cried, for real. OMG . Junsu’s voice, it is just superb. Call me drama queen or dramatic, I feel surge of mixed emotion every time I listened to this song. So powerful, I can feel so much love, agony, pain from the song. Overflowing emotion coming from his heavenly voice.

6. Turning Around And Around 돌고 돌아도

My another personal favorite. This song..got sageuk drama feel to me. LOL. Me and sageuk drama.. LOL. Anyway, I love that ‘lalalalalllaalalalla’ part. Silly me. LOL. I think I can hear the orchestra in the music. Violin..and other instruments. 🙂 Genius. The orchestra feels really creeps into me. OMG. I can imagine now Junsu performing this song with orchestra. Really daebak!

7. Intoxication

I am thankful CJes decided to put this song into this album. This song..the music itself already sound very provocative. LOL. Grrrrr~~ Somehow, this song gets me into the mood to dance salsa *Scent of Women* LOL. I am so dramatic. The music is really sexy and alluring at the same time.

8. Breath Featuring Double K

Woot! Again, another upbeat song in this album. I think Junsu..rapping or sing real fast in second verse of the song. Somehow, there is distinctive sound of JYJ can be heard in this song? Am I,again, being delusional? Anyway, Double K nailed this song with strong hiphop feels infused into the song. Coolness

9. Obviously Know 알면서도

Ballad song. Another song that can make me cry. Especially when I’m alone in my car while listening to this song *dramatic mode again* . LOL. The arrangement of the song really good. Junsu’s on the high note, really awesome in this song. Full of emotion.

10. Lullaby Featuring Gaeko of Dynamic Duo

My personal favorite. Sexy ballad song. Junsu’s sexy yet heavenly voice collided with sexy music. Explosive ballad song! Makes me all warm inside. Victorious rap by Gaeko of Dynamic Duo.

11. Fever

An upbeat song that makes me have this kind of thought..Somebody or any dance group in any dance competition will use this song to dance to. This song got this kind of feels. That groovy feels and catchy beat. The music again, suits Junsu’s new good badass image perfectly :). The chorus reminds me of other music genre. Again, not typical pop sound.

12. The Tree that Holds the Dew 이슬을 머금은 나무

Another personal favorite. Very JYJ feels. 🙂 Junsu’s mesmerized voice caught me at the very first word he sings in this song. Really daebak. Soulful and yet strong emotion surged in. Like strong current, keep pulling me in. No joke.

My post already become very lengthy. But in order to make it more beautiful, I need to add in some pictures. Please bear with me. 😀

That’s all for now. Toodlesss!

Junsu..hot & sexy pose OMG it is just a simple pose for god’s sake! LOL. 😀

[NEWS] 120505 We want to see ‘singers’ JYJ

Re-blogged again from JYJ3.net. Please wait for my RANTS later..I need to composed myself first so that my post will not become too disturb to some people out there. I am so sick and tired with all these s***. I wish JYJ will be on that terrestrial TV programs. I know they missed performing on that stage again. They are truly entertainer and darling sweethearts. Put a brave and smiling happy faces for fans to see that they’re happy and contented of the things happened now. Deep down inside, as entertainer, I am pretty sure they’re missing those feeling to be able performed in front of their loyal fans. Especially in their own country.

[Opinion] Will ‘Music Bank’ and ‘Inkigayo’ open for Junsu’s solo comeback?

It is announced that JYJ’s Kim Junsu will be releasing his solo album in May. JYJ is the representative Hallyu singers and they are the stars that many fans are waiting for. In addition, Kim Junsu left a strong impression of his role as Tod in the musical ‘Elizabeth’ in the first half of this year. Not only are local fans anticipating his solo album, it is also garnering interest overseas.

However, it is unknown if he can appear on music programs with his solo album. Immediately after the album release, Kim Junsu will be holding his first formal concert at Jamsil Indoor Stadium in Seoul on May 19 and 20. A week after the concert, he will be starting his Asia concert tour to six Asian cities from Thailand on the 27th. Performances on music programs that can be broadcasted would fully fill up his weekend schedule.

‘Music Bank’ that changed their words only made fans worry… Who will take the responsibility?

If you are a JYJ fan, you will all know the fact that they cannot appear on terrestrial entertainment programs. There were countless of times when it was cancelled after the final decision had been made. While promoting as TVXQ, they experienced an exclusive contract dispute with SM Entertainment management agency. In the end, they formed a new group called JYJ, but we have never once seen JYJ appearing on music programs. We could only see JYJ singing OSTs in year-end award ceremonies.

In May last year, when viewers asked KBS 2TV Music Bank the reason why JYJ could not appear on the program, it said, “JYJ did not release a formal album so they could not be part of the total ranking. Henceforth, if an album is released, entertainment programs – Music Bank, etc will review and discuss with the production crew if JYJ can appear on them.”

However, the response was different when JYJ released their first Korean album. When fans objected to JYJ’s omission from Music Bank’s chart, it brought up the lawsuit problem with previous management agency SM Entertainment. According to Music Bank, it said, “Although the situation continues to change with the release of a formal album and the application of injunction, the original lawsuit between JYJ and SM is still in progress.” Music Bank also changed its words by saying, “We will postpone the appearance of entertainers who are in the middle of a lawsuit. Our stance on observing the progress of the lawsuit until the end will not change.”

According to Music Bank’s main reasoning, even though Kim Junsu releases his solo album, he will not be allowed to appear on music shows as he is a part of JYJ. Although he has put a lot of effort in making the album, he is denied of the chance to meet viewers due to the ‘lawsuit’.

Formed for 2 years… We want to see JYJ who overcame ordeals on music broadcasts

It is clear the JYJ has a high value as Hallyu stars. It is verified by the fact that they have held world tour concerts in Asia, US, Canada, North America, Spain, Germany, Europe, Chile and Peru in South America. However, no matter how many times they have appeared on broadcast in each of these countries, we actually cannot see the three of them singing on stage in South Korean television broadcasts. It is a situation in which our thirst for watching JYJ can only be quenched by watching them on dramas and musicals as they have a restriction on the activities that they are able to carry out.

At present, JYJ cannot carry out their activities properly in Japan too. When they were in TVXQ, they held the top ranks in the Oricon chart. However, it is even harder for them to release an album as JYJ now. At a concert with 8000 fans in Japan last October, JYJ revealed, “We just want to be able to do activities in Japan.” The fans are perpetually looking for JYJ in Japan, but what is the real reason for being unable to sing there?

It is not drunk driving or hit-and-run. It is also not smoking marijuana or assault. JYJ are receiving public criticism for merely asserting their rights. JYJ only hope to perform their own songs in music programs just like other singers and they do not hope for anything more or less than that. The international fans also hope for the same thing.

There are many fans who want to see JYJ as singers. Using offline methods and advertisements on buses, they promote and request JYJ to appear on music programs. The fans even used JYJ’s name to donate to charities. Although there are many people who want JYJ to appear on music programs, it is still impossible for them to do so. K-pop stars have received immense popularity overseas and made the power and status of South Korea known to the world. They are quite different from large-scale promoting and advertising, which is mainly used to promote South Korea.

Will Kim Junsu’s solo album pave the way for us to see JYJ sing on music programs? It has already been two years since they started promoting as JYJ. Now is the time to leave all the past ordeals behind and appear on music broadcasts.

No Gain!!?? Cool!~ Jaejoongie’s composition.

Oh! I saw JUNO as lyricist! JUNO is Junsu’s twinnie right????

Saw some good collaboration here. Again, we have Flowsik of Aziatix. I always like Aziatix and personally I think, Flowsik is good rapper ya’ll. LOL. And then we have Bizzy and Double K, both are Korean hiphop artists. And finally we have Gaeko of Dynamic Duo. Cool line up.. Can’t wait to hear how good those collaboration will be. It must be HYPE!~

One thing for sure, those hiphop artists I mentioned above are all part of the Movement, a Korean hip-hop crew, which includes several other well-known hip-hop artists. Cool right? Except for Flowsik, he is in class of his own. 😀

Some people might wondering, why ‘Xia’ not ‘Xiah’? I am questioning myself the same question too. Well, since I’m learning korean, beginner class…the word is in hangul  written as ‘시아’. As far as I’m concerned, based on my not-so-good korean, it is pronounced as ‘Xia’ instead of ‘Xiah’.

‘ㅅ’ as ‘ss’ with additional of ‘ㅣ’ as ‘ee’ so it will become as shi or xi. And then we have ‘아’. ‘ㅏ’ is pronounced as ‘a’. Since ㅏ is a vowel, it cannot stand alone, that is when we need to add ‘ㅇ’ to make it work. So, it become as XIA.

Wow. Korean is challenging. :). I am not sure whether I am right or not. I have limited vocabulary and information on Korean language. I maybe make a mistakes here, compared to mother tongue speaker. 😀

Nevertheless…

I have to wait for another 2 weeks to get my hands on this CD. Gaaahh~ It’s okey then.. 🙂

Anyway, guys, please buy this CD from your trusted sources. Those purchased CDs will be contributing ranking in Hanteo Chart. One thing I know for sure that my local provider, buys directly in South Korea. Bought many K-pop items from her and she lived down south area in Malaysia!~ What else can I do, I don’t trust other sources. :). I have some trust issue in terms of contributing numbers in JYJ’s product purchasing. LOL.

Again..look forward for the fantastic and awesome album from Junsu of JYJ. I am glad that Jaejoongie have contributed his baby to Junsu. All his composition are unbelievably good!~

Junsu, Fighting!~ JYJ, Fighting!~

What Is Wrong With These People??

OMG. Again…malicious attack towards JYJ began.

What is freaking wrong with these people? Are they jealous of sky-rocketed popularity of our JYJ? Junsu with his successful musical and solo album coming up. Come along, our Yoochun that get all praised for his outstanding acting performance in the RTP and always get love calls for CF. Meanwhile, Jaejoong that expanded his horizon to another drama project and become composer again for Junsu’s solo album. Emm…jealous much. I know it.. JYJ popularity really rising over the whole globe. More than any of their artists can ever achieved. Pfffttttt~ jealousy… I can list of millions of JYJ’s achievement here. I know one fact for sure, they cannot contradict the popularity of JYJ now. They cannot deny it. Can’t. Just can’t.

Are those vermin desperate? Since their artists are not at par with JYJ? They keep on trying to tarnish JYJ’s image. Gaaahh~~~

I hate that Dispatch reporter…He wrote about Yoochun again, about his enlistment.Please do not click to any articles on this matter. Those people are horrible. They just plain mean. Allegedly saying Yoochun is faking his health status? Or the authority being stupid enough on the judgement of Yoochun’s health status? OMO! Stupid moron! If you don’t know about asthmatic attack or asthmatic…then.. those people are such an ignorance fool. It pains me..I know the feeling, perfectly, on  having your loves ones suffered with asthmatic.

Please read here for further details.

I hope JYJ will stay strong together against all these attacks. Those people are persistent. Damn. I hate them. Please rot in hell.

*Background music – We Are Young by Fun.*

Scenario~

Afternoon, Saturday, last weekend.

Me & my niece, Hyfa,  lying on the bed, with our own lappy and both of us too engrossed with whatever we are doing at that moment.

Hyfa, I haven’t see her for a month. She is in boarding school. Back for the weekend only.

Suddenly, the music stop. Changed to..Girl’s Generation song. I was like..glaring at her with disgusted look. I just know..from the music, it is that GG. Grrrrr…..I gritted my teeth. Hyfa smiled, looked at me and said,

Hyfa: Aunty Fara, I know you hate SM. But Shonishidei (SNSD/GG) is good.

Me: I don’t freaking care, my dear. Just turn that crap off. Change to other K-pop songs or whatsoever. There are hundreds & hundreds of other songs. If you want to listen to it, just wear headphone or anything.

Hyfa: Why you hate SM so much? I know it is because JYJ but as far as I concerned, other SM artiste are not guilty. Why you hate all of them as well?

Me: Simple, those SM people are douchebag. Like parasite. And I just can’t stand how ignorance those SM artiste as well. Don’t they realized they are slave to that freaking SM? JYJ are bunch of guys that realized that there are injustice in their system. Yeah, and that Shinhwa too! They’re realized earlier.

Hyfa: I don’t see like those ShiNee or SNSD treated like a slave. They seems…happy.

Me: Yeah, ‘happy’, my ass. *laughing*. Sorry my dear. If you can stand being treated like that, you are welcome to stay until the end. I know that I always talk about perseverance, but don’t be a stupid or not being able to stand for yourself. Life is like that.

Hyfa: Too bad. ShiNee is daebak. EXO-K also, Aunty! They are so good looking!

Me: Owh really? ShiNee? How about their latest single, ‘Sherlock’, is it any good? EXO-K? Just a bunch of cute kids. Their debut song is so freaking awesome, eh??

Hyfa: *laughing* Not at all!! Just okey~

Me: See…they’re on the verge of going down. SM is going down, baby *evil laugh*

Hyfa: OMG, Aunty. You are so evil!

Me: Acting like you don’t know me! *laugh again*. Anything for JYJ & I hate injustice. Don’t let people treat you like a crap. Stand up for yourself. Learn from my mistakes. Life is not always bed of roses.

She turned off SNSD’s music and changed to Fun back again. LOL. Thank god.

I am not good in arguing.I always lose in any debate. I need to stand up more for JYJ.

I should brush up my knowledge on this matter too. Grrrr….Every time I talked about SM, I feel that my anger risen up to top notch. LOL. I know, I will meet more OT5 worshiper or SM lover later. I just need to equipped myself well. 🙂
