SPAO 2012 Warm Heart

SPAO posted this picture of f(x) (sans Amber) on their facebook page. I thought it looked so cozy now that winter is coming, so I wanted to post it here. It’s supposed to be a wallpaper, but the size is a bit off.

This year f(x) and Super Junior are models for SPAO’s fall and winter clothes. Last year it was SNSD (and Super Junior).

I just finished watching episode 4 of To the Beautiful You (or “For You in Full Blossom” (Bloom), which is the official English title — yuck). It’s only been two weeks, but I’m feeling that watching this drama will be a part of my weekend routine the coming few weeks. The community fansubs are made quickly, so I can watch the Wednesday episode with subtitles on Saturday morning and the Thursday episode on Sunday evening. Check my previous post for links to where to get it.

I’m continually impressed with Sulli’s acting. … Continue reading

The first two episodes of the Korean drama series To the Beautiful You have aired and the fansubs have been released. I decided to give this drama a shot partly because Sulli of f(x) plays the lead character and partly because I liked the sound of the plot. Sulli plays Jae-hee who is a fan of the high-jumper Tae-jun (played by SHINee’s Min-ho). Tae-jun gets injured and Jae-hee disguises herself as a boy to be able to join the all-boys school where Tae-jun goes in order to get close to him and convince him not to give up on high-jumping.

As I suspected, Sulli isn’t very convincing as a boy. But that isn’t important as long as the other characters in the drama are convinced. Kind of like how no-one seems to be able to see that Clark Kent looks very much like Superman or how Bruce Wayne has the exact same jaw as Batman.

The story is pretty much what I expected so far, which is good. The original manga (and drama adaptations) is Japanese and it shines through. … Continue reading

 

Sulli of f(x) is starring in the upcoming drama series To the Beautiful You (아름다운 그대에게), which is an adaptation of the Japanese manga Hana-Kimi. Looks very interesting to me. It’s about a girl who idolizes a high-jumper. When he gives up on high-jumping the girl wants to transfer to his school to help him get back. The problem is that it’s an all-boys school, so she disguises herself as a boy to be able to enter.

Co-starring with Sulli is Min-ho from SHINee. There are also members from ZE:A, Infintite and EXO in the drama. The drama is produced by SM Entertainment (as the cast hints at) on SBS.

This is what I ordered for this summer as far as K-Pop (and J-Pop) items go.

I’ve stopped ordering “album + poster” packages, since I already have loads of posters that I don’t have up on the walls. But I couldn’t resist the poster for IU’s latest single Spring of a Twenty Year Old. I’ve wanted an IU poster for a while and I’ve kind of regretted not asking if I could buy one that was on display in a music store in Seoul. It fit in a frame I had lying around too, so that’s a plus. … Continue reading

 

f(x) does it again! I really like their new mini-album. The songs I like the most so far are Electric Shock and Beautiful Stranger. The music video for Electric Shock came out recently and I love it. It’s pretty simple, but it fits the song well and I like the choreography and outfits. Very f(x)-like.

I like Sulli’s straight hair and cactus outfit. Nice colours. They all look great. I dig Amber’s Prodigy T-shirt :) .

It looks kind of freaky when Luna wears those blue contact lenses. Other than that, she looks stunning. Is it just me, or is Luna slimmer now?

This could easily become my summer album. My summer vacation starts in just a couple of weeks.

 

f(x) are coming back with their second mini-album Electric Shock the day after tomorrow. SM has been releasing concept photos for a couple of days and today they released a video teaser, which consists of a medley of the songs from the album and the concept photos. It’s circle lens galore :) . Love the picture of Sulli with the flowers under her eyes. Luna’s promo picture came out great too.

I love f(x)’ out-theredness both when it comes to their styling and their songs. I’m looking forward to this release. Because they usually promote during the summer, I’ve come to associate them with summer time and vacation. However, I suspect that last year’s Hot Summer is cursed, because it feels like each time I play it, it starts to rain :lol: .

Update June 9: the music video teaser is out now.

Sounds very promising if you ask me. Full music video should be out soon. Lol @ Krystal’s dinosaur earring :lol:

 

Behold the hotness that is Kwon Yu-ri! :D This song was her solo number at Girls’ Generation’s first Asia Tour. Solo in the sense that she’s the only SNSD member on the stage. She’s joined by Amber from f(x), who does the rapping.

Am I wearing my Yu-ri cap while writing this? That’s an affirmative :) .

 

Is it just me or is Krystal getting prettier every day?

Hello is SHINee’s song. I wish they would’ve performed Lollipop too.

 

This is the content of my latest K-Pop order. Well, actually I got the SNSD DVDs two weeks ago, but I got the rest today.

It consists of Miss A’s A Class album, KARA’s Step (special edition), Girls’ Generation’s Into the New World concert DVDs and f(x)’ Hot Summer repackaged album. All are digipacks.
