Music

I love many kinds of music and had went through various change in musical preference. From indie to mainstream. From classical music to jazz. Music is very important for me.

Books

A little bit different from other girls, rather than spend my money to buy clothes, shoes, or cosmetics, I usually choose to buy books instead.

Pharmacy

Pharmacists are healthcare professionals who practice in pharmacy, the field of health sciences focusing on safe and effective medication use. For me the science of pharmacy is fascinating and interesting.

Movie

I'm a movie enthusiast. Particularly for Fantasy, Adventure, Animation and Science-Fiction Movie. It's a nice way to escape the reality for a while.

Anime and Manga

I love to read manga and watch anime ^^

Who is Next: WIN (English subtitle) Episode 10

This is the final battle in which Team A finally become the Winner. Team B performance is also good. Their song, Climax is actually good. But despite so many people praise B.I for his rap verse in Climax (Kang Seung Yoon even brought to tears by the lyrics), I simply think his voice in this song is annoying (Sorry, B.I fans >.<).

Guardians of the Galaxy (Review)

I've already said it numerous times before. But in case you never read my previous blog posts, let me state it again. Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the movies that I desperately want to see this year. I've watched all the trailers, monitored the news, searched information, and became infatuated with its Director, James Gunn. >///<. Ha ha ha. Now that I'm finally watched the movie, did it live up to my high expectation? Read my review below!


Overall, I really like this movie. The music is great. The visual is great. The acting is good. The story is simple but interaction between the characters make it interesting. I love the dynamic when Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, and Gamora first meet and try to catch each other. I also love the third act. Really hilarious. He he he. But honestly, I think James Gunn could be more creative in creating this Marvel Cosmic universe. Particularly the design of the inhabitants. I also had issue with the pace of this movie. It's too fast, I end up want this movie to be longer. It's a little bit overstuffed for a 2 hour movie so I wish there were more backstory. In the end, I recommend you to watch it in the cinema. Have you seen it? Comment below and let me know what you think!

Who is Next: WIN (English subtitle) Episode 7

This is one of my favorite episode of Who is Next: WIN. I really love "Officially Missing You" that was sang by Team A in the 2nd Battle. For me, one of Team A's strength is their ability to write beautiful and meaningful lyrics. This song was originally sang by Tamia but Team A change its lyrics with the theme of missing yourself from the past. This song resonance with my feeling, so much that I instantly become their big fan. I also love the dance battle. Both team are good in dancing.

Winner - Smile Again (Video Download)

Continuing my previous post, here is another original song from Winner that I really like. It's great! The title of the song is "Smile Again" and I love it because the lyrics and the melody are nice. Here is the video in Youtube:



You can download the video here:
High Quality (1280x 960) Size: 82 Mb
Medium Quality (640 x 480) Size: 20 Mb

The lyrics of this song, as in the Mnet video's official translation:

Your eyes so teary, you tears drop
It fall down your cheeks
They smudge into black
You cry today, once again

I beg you to stop crying but you keep crying soundlessly
What’s hurting your heart so bad
I want to take it all back
Your smile is like heaven

The pressure over your head is drawing a shadow
Your flowery smile has withered, water it
Don’t cry but smile warmly
Don’t hide it with curtains, but show your teeth
The darkness, it’s there because you have light, smile

Open the door, smile again
Leave the room, smile again
Smile like the sun eh eh eh eh
Break your cage, smile again
Hold my hand and run away, smile again
Warmly, like you did before, eh eh eh eh

The light draws away from me
Victory and failure, now so clear
Don’t feel down, make a wish when the stars fall from the sky
I want to find it again, my relaxed smile
Let’s get up like sea-saws
That one flower, hasn’t quite bloomed yet
It won’t be brought down by harsh winds, your name win

When I ask you to smile, you just stare at the sky
What’s taken your smile away, I want to take it back.
Your smile is like heaven

Open the door, smile again
Leave the room, smile again
Smile like the sun eh eh eh eh
Break your cage, smile again
Hold my hand and run away, smile again
Warmly, like you did before, eh eh eh eh

I can’t even remember your smiling face
Even the smile on my face is fading away
Smile again, even if you close your eyes
Smile again, so your lips lift up
Smile again, Break into a smile
Smile again, I’ll be by your side

Open the door, smile again
Leave the room, smile again
Smile like the sun eh eh eh eh

I’ll smile like a madman, so you’ll smile again
I won’t stop, let it shine your smile
I’ll jump like a madman, so you’ll get up again
Scream until we’re happy yeah

If you like it, you can purchase Winner debut album, 2014 S/S. I hope you will  like it as much as I do ^^.

Team A - Go Up (Video Download)

As you know from my previous post, I love Winner and an avid Inner Circle. That's why I decided to watch Who is Next: WIN, the program that showcase their talents for the first time. WIN is a survival battle program to determine YG's next boy group where the most voted team can seize the name "Winner" and make a debut. Eleven YG male trainee was divided to 2 teams, Team A and Team B, and compete. Team A win the program and be the "Winner". I love them more after watched that program because they make several good songs. My favorite original song from them is "Go Up" because the lyrics is motivating and the melody is addicting. Here is the video in Youtube:


You can download the video here:
High Quality (1280x 960) Size: 88Mb
Medium Quality (640 x 480) Size: 22 Mb

If you like it, you can purchase this song here in iTunes. I heard they featured this song for their Japanese debut, but I haven't found the video anywhere.

The lyrics of this song, as in the official translation in Mnet video:

We've been walking for an eternity
Following the welcoming light at the end of the road
I want to leave this pitch black darkness and smile brightly

My gun always points to the sky
So I can shoot at something bigger than myself
I’m going to fly splendidly
With this stage as the runway
With no innate gifts,
Endurance is my weapon
They say rice plants bow down the more mature they get
When I was little, over the black line I drew over my doorstep

I fall and scrape. Scarring myself
Even if there’s a hole through my heart
We don’t need tears
Even if we fall a thousand times
Get up
We’ll go up

Throw your worries away into the sky. Only blow up
You have us. Get up!
Let’s hold our hands together
Get them up! Hands up!
We’ll get through this

Yeah, we’ll go up! Uh uh uh up!
Uh uh uh up! Uh uh uh up!
Yeah, we’ll go up! Uh uh uh up!
Uh uh uh up! Uh uh uh up!
Yeah, we’ll go up!

I keep dreaming, but I’m only dreaming
Sell my youth with my success at stake
There are shards of glass in my shoes
Every step I take is a bloody autograph, right?
Even if our friendships are torn into two, our memories will remain always
Even if we tread on one another, we push each other up
With all 110 fingers held tight
We’ll go up!

We’ve come up without any fear
Following the stars shining above us
Just like the stars in the sky, I want to shine too
I got on the narrow staircase

Every step I take, I stumble
Even if I feel heavy, there’s no other path for us
Even if we fall a thousand times
Get up. We’ll go up!

Throw your worries away into the sky. Blow up!
You have us by your side. Get up!
Our hands held tight
Hold them up, hands up!
We’ll get through this

Yeah, we’ll go up! Uh uh uh up!
Uh uh uh up! Uh uh uh up!
Yeah, we’ll go up! Uh uh uh up!
Uh uh uh up! Uh uh uh up!
Yeah, we’ll go up!

Our lives are dramas
Now is the highlight
Hoping for a happy ending
We get on camera
In the end it’s all the same
What matters is you and I
Nothing lost, nothing gained
Everybody get up
Throw all your worries to the sky, blow up
You have us, get up
Take each other’s hands and put them up, hands up!
We will win over it all


Yeah, we’ll go up! Uh uh uh up!
Uh uh uh up! Uh uh uh up!
Yeah, we’ll go up! Uh uh uh up!
Uh uh uh up! Uh uh uh up!
Yeah, we’ll go up!

That's it. Hope you like the song as much as I am ^^.

Winner


Winner.
From left to right:Song Minho, Kim Jinwoo, Nam Taehyun, Kang Seungyoon, Lee Seunghoon
I'm not an avid fan of K-pop. It's safe to say that most of K-pop songs are not my cup of tea. However, I do know several things about K-pop, owing to the fact that my friends and my sisters love South Korean music. My first sister is a fan of 2NE1, my second sister is a fan of BEAST and BTOB. My female friends are crazy about BTS, Infinite, VIXX, EXO, Super Junior and a bunch of other boybands. My male friends mostly like Girls Generation and a few others love 4 minute, KARA or Sistar. I've heard some of their songs but only like several of it. I only like a few of South Korean musicians. Most of them are in YG Entertainment, i.e Epik High, Big Bang, 2NE1 and most recently, Akdong Musician. Other than that, I only like CN Blue and FT Island. But right now, there's 1 boyband that I think will make it to the list of my favorite. Their name is Winner and I think they almost win my heart.

Winner.
From left to right:Kang Seungyoon, Lee Seunghoon, Kim Jinwoo, Song Minho, Nam Taehyun,
Winner was born from the reality show WIN: Who is Next in 2013. Eleven male trainee are divided into team A and team B, battled to win and finally debut. Team A won the show and establish themselves as Winner, the 2nd boyband from YG Entertainment after Big Bang. I didn't really follow them so i don't know what I could expect. But yesterday, Tablo & YG Family tweet the video of their debut album and I decided to check it out.  I'm glad I did. At first, I don't really like it. But after 2, 3, 4, 5 times listening to their songs, I finally love it. I have this "hooked on a feeling" after watched their TV show, Winner TV. You could search it on Youtube or get the link here. The video have English subs to it. Just click the "CC" from the options.


Winner is consist of 5 talented boys:




Kang Seung Yoon is the current leader of Winner. Even before his debut with this boyband, Seung Yoon is already quite popular because he took part in Superstar K2 (a music competition in South Korea like American Idol. He finished in 4th place) and have already release several singles. Beside being one of the vocals in Winner, he also play guitar and compose songs. When asked what feature from himself that is the number 1 among Winner members, he said that he is the skinniest. In Nico-Nico Douga show, he said that he has the sexiest body line among the members (laugh). He also love to play billiard. Other members think that he doesn't get along well with the maknae, Nam Tae Hyun. But he himself said that he's most comfortable to spend time with Tae Hyun because their similar background. If you ask me, I would say that his voice has this rockish and wild feeling that contrast with the voice of Jin Woo or Tae Hyun.

Lee Seung Hoon


Lee Seung Hoon, is the rapper, singer and dance choreographer of  Winner. Just like Kang Seung Yoon, he is already quite popular before debut because he took part in a similar competition called K-pop Star and finished in 4th place. When asked what feature from himself that is the number 1 among Winner members, he said that he is the cutest. A ha! I agree. I personally love him because he has this funny personality. In Nico Nico Douga show he said that he has the biggest Adam's apple in Winner. Contrast to the other rapper in the group, Song Min Ho who has more heavy timbre, Seung Hoon's voice is more light and high. 


Song Min Ho

He looks like GD here



Song Min Ho, also known as Mino, is the rapper of Winner. With the fellow rapper Lee Seung Hoon, he is called Dumb and Dumber brother because they got this happy and funny personality. When they was in Japan, both of them visit Kawagoe and persuade grannies there to dance along with them. Ha ha ha. When asked what feature from himself that is the number 1 among Winner members, he said that his hair dried faster than other members. He also said that he has the most powerful voice among Winner's members. Many people said that Mino looks like GD and Tae Yang. Sometimes he can also looks like TOP. I second that. What do you think?

Kim Jin Woo



Kim Jin Woo is the vocalist of Winner and has the longest time of being a trainee among them. Even though he is the oldest member, he's in charge of Aegyo in this group. When asked what feature from himself that is the number 1 among Winner members, he said that he has the biggest eyes among them. All the other member said that Jin Woo is the most handsome one in Winner, while he himself think that Nam Tae Hyun is the most handsome. He has this naive and innocent personality that make him prone to the prank of the other members. He also had a bad sense of direction, that's why he often lost if he goes by himself. His voice has this kind of soft and smooth feeling.

This is not a picture of Mino and his girlfriend. The one in the left is Kim Jin Woo acting as the female antagonist for their parody of "The Heirs". He's prettier than me (crying)





Nam Tae Hyun is the main vocalist in Winner. He has this unique face among Korean so it's fair to assume that he stand out among other members. Yoo In Na said that he looks like a male fairy. He has a complex about his slant eyebrow that made people often misunderstood him. That's because his eyebrow often make him look sad or mad even though he's not. Ha ha ha. Even though he's the maknae (the youngest member), he looks to have more mature personality than his hyungs. When asked what feature from himself that is the number 1 among Winner members, he said that he has the weirdest personality. In Nico-Nico Douga show, it is revealed that he also has the biggest hands in Winner. Seung Hoon said that when they're in Japan, their fans only called them, "Winner..... Winner" when Seung Hoon and Mino was passing by. But as soon as their fans fans spot Tae Hyun, they were screaming, "Tae Hyun-san! Tae Hyun-san!", that make both of rapper surprise. 



Here are 2 videos of their songs from the first album S/S, Empty and Color Ring:



Watch it, then tell me your opinion about their music! I've already purchased their album and my favorite song from them is Different & Smile Again.

All members of Winner take part in writing and compose their songs

Their first advertisement





I hope they will be around for a long time, accomplish many great things and keep make good songs.
