I heard you cried last night.
mood like a pendulum.
hates to see dust.
shut up if you think you're cute.
pick up a book, moron!

Hello! Time of the year has come to write my yearly DBSK lovepost. This year, many unhappy events have taken place in my DBSK-fandom, such as the legal suit between JaeChunSu and SM Entertainment. From what I gathered from friends and DBSGLJcomm, SM is just being a pain in every one's ass. The reason the boys gave for so-called biting the hand that fed them was the feeling of jaded due to the never-ending activities on their schedule as planned by SM. Yes, every one has to work to earn a living, but even robots deserve a monthly break if not a weekly.

I typed a whole lotta shit but decided to d.e.l.e.t.e them all.

In summary, all I wanna say is that TVXQ can leave or stay in SM for all I care as long as they are happy doing what they love, even if it means that TVXQ is gonna be nothing once JaeChunSu departs from SM. I'm glad that JaeChunSu are sticking together in this but I wish Uknow and Changmin will come to their senses soon and realise that SM is not where they belong.

Because the boys have a special place for each other in their hearts, they will never turn against each other. Miduhyo.

TVXQ or not, Junsu will still be my favourite Korean boy who has a good command of engrish; Yoochun will always be the sentimental member with a body to die for; Jaejoong with his flawless complexion and voice that suits any genre will always make me jealous; Changmin, the hidden humourous treasure of TVXQ; and Uknow, the leader which completes TVXQ.

Don't you just miss Changmin's bluntness and how "respectful" he is? Hahaha! Making his hyungs bow down to him. Trick.

The time for a reunion will come soon. Be patient and yes, always keep the faith! 세상에 단 하나뿐인 마음 (You're My Miracle).

In the future, you guys might split up and pursue individual projects but the bond you guys share will always keep you guys tight-knitted. I'm so jealous of your strong friendship. 五線紙.

Actually, no matter what happens in the future, just hold onto the happy memories. Proud.

한번의 미소 마지막 인사

Moving on. Let's see what the boys brought us this year.

As expected, once they returned to Japan, I would have the fortune to hear their beautiful voices accompanied by soothing melodies. I chose the live performances for the songs since TVXQ always sound better when they're singing live. They sound great on the albums but their live performances are always more visual and/or moving.

First up, Bolero, a song which has a special meaning to me. Beautiful vocal arrangement! All the parts were rightfully distributed. I love how Junsu didnt participate in chorus number 2 to give the song more texture and flow. 

Their Korean ballads are pleasant to the ears and touching but their Japanese ones are the ones that are B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. The Japanese language is more refined? I dont know about that but this song is a beauty.


Next, 忘れないで, which should be familiar to you guys since I've introduced the song before. Junsu's part at the climax (at 4:59) will just be on your mind for hours/days/weeks after a few replay. I actually like Jaejoong even more because of this song. HAHAHA. 

Now let's listen to a dance track, should I use the word "dance"? HAHA! A up-tempo track might be a better way to put it so you guys will listen to it. Take Your Hands (I.Am.Electro Remix) is another song which I like (Note: not love) from TVXQ this year. Please listen to the remix version, dont avoid it because of the word "electro". This song is pretty catchy and to me it is easy-listening. My definition of easy-listening songs is listening to songs that do not require much attention and involvement.

Let's keep the happy mood going with ウィーアー! To all fans of One Piece, this title aint unfamiliar because this is the title track of the much loved anime which celebrated its 10th anniversary early this year. TVXQ is honoured to be covering this song for its special year. :D

Dont let the music stop! Bringing on Secret Game, the opening track of both their The Secret Code album and tour. I love this song to bits! Yoochun's rapping! Uknow used a girlie voice to rap! Changmin's high notes! Jaejoong's rocker tone! Junsu's engrish!

Song starts around 3:40.

Shall we slow things down? Yes, I think we have to! Listening to TAXI makes one feel like one is on a drive with no destination as images from the past resurface. Did i paint a pretty picture for you guys? So now, listen to the song. ♥♥♥♥

When summer arrives, TVXQ likes to detach your soul from your body with ballads which are nothing but SAD. Oh well, maybe summertime is when they spend time reminiscing. Here's Stand By U, another beautiful ballad. This song is probably their HD work of 2009.


Special mention of Yoochun and Jaejoong's works.

First, the collaboration with m-flo is just splendid. Based on youtube comments, they covered Been So Long for m-flo's 10th Anniversary album. I believed they were invited to do. :D Nice R&B song with a smooth flow.


While Uknow was busy filming his drama, Heading to Ground, which was a flop; and Changmin was in the midst of preparing for his own drama, Yoochun and Jaejoong formed a sub-unit in Japan. Please do not ask me what Junsu was up to because I have no idea! Let me guess, was he serving pizzas at his dad's pizza restaurant? HAHA! Truthfully, I think he was playing soccer all day long. That soccer fanatic. If he knows Thaksin, the former Thai PM, he would become besties with him. Thaksin has the $$$ to buy a soccer team for Junsu to manage or to play in.

Sorry, I digress. Yoochun and Jaejoong released a single in Japan which comprises of their original compositions and lyrics. Yes, they are able to read, write and speak in Japanese fluently now. :D

First, COLOURS ~Melody and Harmony~, which is the more popular song out of the two. It is also the image song for Hello Kitty's 35th anniversary. Yups, they are getting pretty famous and gaining acknowledgement from industry's experts and fellow artistes for their live performances and strong stage presence.


The other song, Shelter, has a little bit of input from Junsu in terms of the melody. :D

Last but not least, a korean song from the boys. In fact, this is their ONLY new korean song this year. What a petty, I dont think I'll ever get to hear it live! I this song. Changmin did a great job with the lyrics. This boy is getting better with words. :D

It was just like a scene in a movie. In fact, the MGM cameras were rolling when screen goddess Grace Kelly exchanged vows with Prince Rainier III of Monaco on April 19, 1956, in front of some 600 guests, including Ava Gardner, Aristotle Onassis, and Cary Grant. The congregation stood in awe when the patrician beauty entered the church in a stunning ivory silk taffeta gown designed by movie costumer Helen Rose. But Kelly only had eyes for the groom. "He is everything I've ever loved," she said.

Why Facebook when every thing is on Flickr?

Stop stalking people in Facebook, guys!

After watching (500), your life would just go through some sorta transition.

You might even want to repaint your walls.

If life is a palette of colour, what will you be?
Brown, the symbol of anything dirty.
Red, as though you are passionate about life.
Orange, only if you feel sunny all day long.
Yellow, bright yet boring.
Green, colour of jealousy. Speaks a lot about you, huh?
Blue, as if you are always down/calm.
Grey, the middle of nothing and everything.
Black, home to all darkness.

Indeed, the clothes are very structured. That aside, I love the photography especially since it reminds me of the back of my house before the development of Sengkang.
