OST-uesday!!
After skipping the last two weeks, WE ARE BACK! I don't know how consistent I will be going forward, but I will try to put one of these out every Tuesday. But I am really excited to make this card this week because this song is one of my favorite OSTs I've heard. Like, the song sounds right up my alley. So I haven't seen the drama, but I know many of you have.It is a little too melodramatic for me, as most dramas tend to be, but I have heard so many good things! And like I said, this song is everything. It is a part of the more lighthearted tone of the drama at the beginning, since the drama gets really intense and sad as it goes on. BUT I DIGRESS. THIS WEEK'S OST IS NONE OTHER THAN: *not my video, nor do I own any pics/gifs used in this card* *montage type video, so just be careful of spoilers* From the 2014 drama Angel Eyes (엔젤아이즈) comes my choice for this week's OST: Run To You by Lasse Lindh. Lasse Lindh is a Swedish pop artist who moved to South Korea for inspiration and has had his music used in many things the past 4 years. Angel Eyes in a SBS melodrama set in the medical field, centering on a surgeon, Park Dong Joo, and Yoon Soo Wan, an emergency 119 worker. The two main leads were childhood sweethearts, but due to unfortunate circumstances, they were separated. Now 12 years later, then meet again, but Soo Wan, who was blind when she was younger and does not know what Dong Joo looked like, has no idea who the man she meets was to her in the past. Soo Wan is played by Ku Hye-Sun, and Dong Joo is played by Lee Sang-Yoon. Other notable players in the cast are Kim Ji-Suk, Jung Jin-Young, Jung Ae-Ri, Kong Hyung-Jin, Seungri (BIGBANG fame), Juan, and Kim Heo-Jin. Also notable is that our main leads have young counterparts, where young Soo Wan is played by Nam Ji-Hyun, and young Dong Joo is played by Kang Ha-Neul. I have not seen Angel Eyes, but I know many people from the Vingle K-drama community that have suggested and loved it. My sister has seen most of it, but she stopped at the part where all the happiness happened, because she doesn't want to see the end. So if that is any indication of how this drama is, be prepared for some tissues. I am really excited to talk about the song though so let's move on! I love this song. Like, the simple piano at the beginning, the sporatic verses, the simplistic lyrics, the chorus' catchiness, the fluffiness of it. It was basically written for me. Run To You is written entirely in English, probably the song writer is Swedish and it is entirely fluffy and sticky sweet. It is used at the beginning of the drama to showcase how happy the two leads made each other in their youth, and how 12 years later there is still something about the other person that brings back this youthful joy that they felt when they were younger. I also really enjoy it because it is used as a good contrast to the sadness that the present day of the drama/ later episodes. We are all brought back to the happiness of youth, and so are the characters. Our two leads have been through a lot in this drama. Like, a lot a lot. There are many reasons that these two aren't together, yet they are drawn together. That is what this song conveys so perfectly. The lyrics are so simple yet that is almost the charm of it. The simplicity adds to the feeling of young love. And the imagery of being drawn to someone, of becoming so attached to that person where your hearts beat as one is so cliche yet so effective. Let's look at the lyrics a bit: *found on kpoplyrics* "I was broken I was wasted Then you came like an angel in the rain Love used to slip trough me like waters slips through hands But with you it changed I know I feel I’m closer to your heart I am run run running to you And I’ll keep you safe forever Through the tears trough the love and all the nights we share I am run run running to you And I’ll keep you safe forever Don’t you know my love don’t you know two hearts can beat as one" It is just too cute. The speaker knows that they are complete when they are with that person and at that point, you don't even really need to know who that person is. The feeling should be overwhelming. Your heart should be literally leaping out of your chest for that person. Everything about you is run-run-running to that person. Ugh, I just really love this song. It is so simple, yet so cute and meaningful. I know there are many more great songs from this drama but this is the one that sets my feelings on fire. I turn into a pile of smiling mush. Fluff, fluff, fluff. Do you like the OST? What about the drama? @yaka89 @merryjane13 @B2utyrisa @StephanieDuong @sugajin94 @kpopandkimchi @KPopGaby @9thMuse @lamrotamrot @krazylilmeow @heidichiesa @KDramaKPop2015 @DianaCastaneda @carolinacastane @VeronicaArtino @cindystran @jiggzy19 @ThePinkPrincess @DenieceSuit @Ilikepancakes @VixenViVi
OST-uesday!
Hello OSTuesday friends! Sorry this is coming out so late in the day... I almost forgot about it... BUT! I did not. And so we are here. My choice OST for today is a song that stuck out to me immediately when I watched this drama. AND. This was the first drama I ever watched, though I didn't complete it ( my first completed drama award goes to To The Beautiful You). But this song, whenever it played I just sang along because it made me laugh and I immediately loved it. Who could foresee that this song was done by the group that got me into K-pop??? So, without further ado. Here is my OST song choice for the day! *not my video* *also it is an montage of the story so be careful with spoilers* From the 2009 teen drama Boys Over Flowers (꽃보다 남자) comes my choice for today's song: Stand By Me by SHINee. SHINee is a South Korean K-pop group from SM Entertainment, and major pioneers in innovation and sound within k-pop. They are second generation idols and still making music together with their original line up today, while each member also has a successful solo career as well with whatever they have chosen to do (music, acting, being amazing). Boys Over Flowers in a KBS2 romantic comedy high school drama based on manga Hana Yori Dango, and is not the only adaption to screen that the manga has seen. We follow our heroine Jan Di, an ordinary hard working girl, through the series of events that lead her to attending school at the prestigious Shin Hwa High. She soon catches the attention of F4, the most popular group of boys in the school which consists of Joon Pyo as leader, and Ji Hoo, Yi Jung, and Woo Bin. Jan Di is thrust into the world of prestige when Joon Pyo takes an interest in her, and your regularly scheduled drama ensues. The main cast consists of Koo Hye Sun as Jan Di, Lee Min Ho and Joon Pyo, Kim Hyun Joong as Ji Hoo, Kim Bum as Yi Jung, Kim Joon as Woo Bin, and Kim So Eun as Ga Eul (Jan Di's best friend who also has a love line with an F4 member). ALSO SHOUT OUT TO iKON'S CHANWOO AS BABY JOON PYO BOF is a k-drama classic. If you like dramas, you've probably seen this show, or at least attempted to watch it. Sure, it has its flaws. Sure it uses so many tropes you can't keep count. Sure, the drama is so ridiculous and long seeming and at the end you just are shouting at your screen WHYYYY FINALLYYYY. But, we all adore it for those very reasons. We all fell in love with Ji Hoo being the perfect second lead. We all fell for king asshole Jun Pyo and his love for Jan Di. We all freak out at the end when all the family drama happens. We all adore the side loves with Ga Eul and Yi Jung. BOF, I never finished it. But I still adore this drama, and honestly, I can't wait to talk about the song. SO LETS GO. Stand By Me is sort of an unbeat pop song, but still slow like a ballad, but definitely not a ballad. Confused yet? Yeah me too. Honestly, I don't remember it in conjunction to the drama at all. Like, I don't remember when it played. BUT. I do remember whenever it did play, I noticed it. Right away. Probably because it would always be the super cheesy "together make it love,forever make it your smile" part. And now that I think about it, I think it had to do with the Ji Hoo, but I could totally be wrong. The reason I love this song so much, just it starts off right away with Onew's rich and unique tone and then gets to upbeat and schmaltzy. There is no doubt in anyone's mind that the singer is in love. They want to do everything for this girl. Their whole world is centered around her now, and making her life amazing. And really, that is what the men of F4 learn. They learn to not be selfish and to obsess over how awesome they are. They learn that they are giant assholes but that there is a way to love someone in a sweet way (Joon Pyo cough cough). Lets look at the lyrics: *translations taken from parkminnie wordpress* "Now hold my hands Stand by me Look towards me Even though I don’t know love yet Stand by me guard over me Because I am still clumsy at love" and "I don’t know at first How to begin to love I still don’t know my heart But I love you" Ugh, at the core, this drama is about first loves. This drama is about falling head over heels and wanting to be better for someone. These lyrics are so much about first love. Not knowing what to do, you might think you aren't good enough, or you have been so bad for so long and so self centered you might not know how to give your heart to someone. These are all themes brought in BOF, and all themes within this sweet love long. I love fluffy things you guys. You know this. I know this. The whole world knows. This song is just so fluffy and easy listening, I wanted to share it with you. Sure it isn't ground breaking OST stuff, but it is a personal favorite of mine and I hope you guys enjoy it too! @yaka89 @merryjane13 @B2utyrisa @StephanieDuong @sugajin94 @kpopandkimchi @KPopGaby @9thMuse @lamrotamrot @krazylilmeow @heidichiesa @KDramaKPop2015 @DianaCastaneda @carolinacastane @VeronicaArtino @cindystran @jiggzy19 @ThePinkPrincess @DenieceSuit @Ilikepancakes @VixenViVi Love ya'll!
OST-uesday!
Hello OSTuesday friends! I am really excited for the OST and drama I am putting this week, and I honestly had such a hard time picking which specific song I wanted to feature. I guess I'll just have to come back around to this drama eventually and do another song! So the song I ultimately chose has two versions presented on the many soundtracks released, so I will share both of those because they both are quite good and different because one is sung by a male and the other by a female. Okay, you guys ready for some delightful listening and drama feels?! Our OST this week is: *the first video contains no spoilers, but the second one is literally an ending scene of the drama, and spoilerly so watch with caution* *these videos are not mine, and also the photos used below* From the 2009 musical drama You're Beautiful (미남이시네요) comes my double song picks for this week: What Should I Do, sung by Park Da Ye on the original OST release, and also sung by Jang Geun Suk on his special cd release and in the drama by his character. I couldn't find much on Park Da Ye, but I'm assuming she is a singer. Jang Geun Suk is a popular Korean actor who stared in You're Beautiful. You're Beautiful is a 2009 SBS Hong sisters' musical comedy romance drama centered on the fictional idol group A.N.JELL and the incredible turn of events that lead our heroine Go Mi Nyu into cross dressing as her twin brother Go Mi Nam and becoming the new member of the idol band. While she tries to keep her secret hidden to protect herself and her brother, many tricky situations arise with Tae Kyung, Jeremy, and Shin Woo, her three new band mates. Romance, music, and drama ensue. The heroine Go Mi Nam/Go Mi Nyu is played by Park Shin Hye, while Jang Geun Suk, Jung Yong Hwa, and Lee Hong Ki round out the rest of the band mates and leading men. Also a notable cast member and role in the drama, Uee plays second lead female He Yi. I love this drama you guys. It is so fluffy and pleasant for me to watch. Sure it is really sad in some parts, and it is filled with typical k-drama tropes. BUT. I am a sucker for a good cross-dressing drama. AND. It was made in 2009 so many of these tropes weren't that big of a deal at the time. Plus the Hong sisters have such a style that if these tropes didn't exist, like the asshole first lead or the impossibly perfect second lead who sabotages his own chances at getting the girl, I just feel like it wouldn't be classic Hong sisters. Alright let's talk about my OST choice! What Should I Do is used in drama as the song that sort of causes a lot of drama between Go Mi Nyu, Tae Kyung, and Tae Kyung's mom. Without giving too much away, there is sort of a big tie in between all of these characters and Go Mi Nyu's deceased father and lots of miscommunication and deceit happening behind the scenes. So the song in drama was written by Go Mi Nyu's father before Go Mi Nam and Go Mi Nyu were born, or grown, and given to Tae Kyung's mom to sing, making it on one of her many albums. Fast foward the the drama's present day, and Tae Kyung's mom wants Tae Kyung to do a cover of the song, which ugh this angers me to no end but I digress cause spoilers. Confused yet? This drama is so intertwined it is hard to explain. All you need to know is that this song gets me in the feels. When Tae Kyung sings it at the end to get Go Ni Nyu's attention, I cried. His delicate yet deep voice resonates so well with the song to me, even though it was originally released on the OST as the female vocalist. The song lyrically is just a really good testament to everyone's feelings in the drama, while it, like I mentioned before due to many different communication errors, also causes many drama points. The chorus is incredibly simple yet so powerful: *translation taken from notesanotes wordpress* "what i should i do? what should i do ? you’re leaving what i should i do? what should i do ? you are leaving me i love you, i love you i cry out to you but you can’t hear me because i am only shouting in my heart" especially when Tae Kyung is singing it at the end during the A.N.JELL concert. It just gets me in the feels you guys. We are just going to ignore all of the Shin Woo feels cause this song doesn't touch that (although it totally does cause it is exactly how he acted the whole friggin drama like wtf boo tell her how you feel) *cries* Do you guys enjoy this OST/drama? Thanks for being lovely friends! Sorry my writing for these cards have been so rushed and error-filled. @yaka89 @merryjane13 @B2utyrisa @StephanieDuong @sugajin94 @kpopandkimchi @KPopGaby @9thMuse @lamrotamrot @krazylilmeow @heidichiesa @KDramaKPop2015 @DianaCastaneda @carolinacastane @VeronicaArtino @cindystran @jiggzy19 @wllmvns @DenieceSuit @Ilikepancakes @VixenViVi
OST-uesday!
Hello friends, I have another wonderful OSTuesday planned for today! (I am so sorry this is technically Wednesday but I totally forgot because I am horrible. So this card is going to be rushed and crazy so just, like, enjoy the song and forgive my lameness) First off, I am sorry I missed last week. I had just gotten back in town last Tuesday, having spent the whole long weekend up in Dallas watching my step-brother get married to his beautiful fiance, now wife. When I got home mid-Tuesday, I just didn't feel like doing one. Laziness got the best of me. I am really excited about this week's OST! I don't know about the drama all that well, only that one of my favorite actors was the lead and that, even though it was about the romantic aspect of the story, there was also a strong brother story-line as well. BUT! My sister LOVED this drama, and she has literally been playing the song nonstop the past two weeks, eventually wooing me into falling for the OST. You guys ready? Our OSTuesday this week is none other than: *not my video* From the 2015 drama I Remember You (너를 기억해) (internationally titled Hello Monster) comes my choice for today: Remember by Dear Cloud. Dear Cloud is a South Korean 4 member indie band who debuted in 2007. They also did the theme for the 2014 drama Liar Game, entitled Liar. I Remember You is a KBS2 romance mystery about a famous FBI profiler who returns home to catch a serial killer who he has a personal vendetta against, teaming up with a passionate detective in search of the killer, sparking a romance between the two. The dramas two main leads are Seo In-Guk as the FBI profiler Lee Hyun, and Jang Na Ra as detective Cha Ji-Ahn. Choi Won Young, Lee Chun Hee, Park Bo Gum, Min Sung Wook, Kim Jae Young, and Son Seung Won round out the rest of the extended cast. Also, Do Kyung Soo (D.O from popular idol group EXO) makes a cameo appearance in the first two episodes, applying his brilliant Satan Soo persona to that of a serial killer. Surprise, surprise, I haven't seen it. BUT. My sister has and her favorite part was the brothers' relationship. The fact that she got through the entire drama without fast forwarding once is a GIANT feat for my sister, so that is a testament that this is a good piece of entertainment. This song is beautiful. Hands down gorgeous gorgeous ballad. The lead vocalist of Dear Cloud has such a sultry deep voice, my sister and I had to look up whether a male or female was singing. But regardless of gender, this voice can convey so much emotion and is perfect for such an emotional drama. This song starts of slow, very minimal lyrics and many pauses, just a small backing beat and minimal instrumentation. Right at the beginning of the chorus, the backing music swells just a little, and the vocalist pours her heart into the lyrics, pushing her voice a bit more than she had in the verses, creating such a dynamic change and so much emotion. My sister was very adamant about me saying that this song is the song that is meant for the brothers, and that many people have misinterpreted it as the love song that is the anthem for the main couple. Looking at the lyrics, I totally see what my sister means, and feel even more connected to this song, since I am also quite fond of my sister and our bond. Here are some notable lyrics that I thought illustrated what the song is trying to convey: *thank you popgasa for the translation* "I can’t stop, I’m afraid I can’t control myself, what do I do? Look at me, remember me Protect yourself from disappearing When things get hard, remember me I really wanted you So I hope you’ll stop for a moment and look at me" The main character had lost brother at a young age, and the thought of losing the memories of his brother, losing that connection with someone so close to you, is heart breaking. I don't want to get in to too many spoilery things, but the lyrics included above feel more like the brother's plea to our main character, especially the "I can't control myself" and the "look at me, remember me". So without saying to much there, I hope that piqued your interest into watching the drama if you haven't already. In conclusion, I just want this song in my life always Okay? Okay. *none of these photos or videos belong to me* How do we feel about this weeks OST and drama? isn't Seo InGuk the most beautiful man in the entire world????? @yaka89 @merryjane13 @B2utyrisa @StephanieDuong @sugajin94 @kpopandkimchi @KPopGaby @9thMuse @lamrotamrot @krazylilmeow @heidichiesa @KDramaKPop2015 @DianaCastaneda @carolinacastane @VeronicaArtino @cindystran @jiggzy19 @wllmvns @DenieceSuit @Ilikepancakes @VixenViVi
