Review: GD&TOP’s GD & TOP Vol. 1 album

I can just feel y’all rolling your eyes at me at GD & TOP’s album name. But come on, really, does anyone else know the title of this album??! Haha, I’ve heard some people referring to it as High High but I think that was just the name of the digital single they released prior to the album. But would a rose called by any other name not smell as sweet?? (I think that’s how the quote goes haha haven’t read Shakespeare in a while, so forgive my social faux pas). What I’m trying to say is the album is still great despite what it might be called, so let’s begin with the reviewing process.

Best of J-Pop/J-Rock 2009 ~Guys~

The Best of J-Pop/J-Rock 2009 ~Guys Edition~

Music in 2009 from guys was so limited for me this year!


Christmas Eve is Upon us…

You know what that means…HOLIDAY BALLADS or just songs lol!! Via J-Pop & K-pop ❤ Well some of them aren’t really Holiday inspired but they fit the theme and there’s snow therefore I deem it a holiday song!

White Light by Namie Amuro

Not the best song from Namie or the best holiday song but it’s enjoyable every once in a while and she looks fabulous in the video, gosh I want her stylists!

White X-Mas by KAT-TUN

Yummy Kame’s really looking good at 3:50, Jin & Kame really are vocal powerhouses in KAT-TUN which is the only reason I like this song, it shows off the vocals they don’t usually get to show off. Taguchi was 1:50, I like him with short hair, A LOT!

you by Koda Kumi

Of course Kuu isn’t cold in that tiny little jacket while out in the snow!! Gosh come on stylists make it at least a little bit believable, though kudos for the beautiful wardrobe. This song is simply her best ballad and I just love the climaxes through it, a must listen! It’s the song that made her HUGE.

Winter Bell by Koda Kumi

A b-side on her stay with me single from last December. It’s very pretty and poppy. It’s comes up on my shuffle sometimes and makes me wanna skip and sing in a winter wonderland, then I remind myself I’m in a Florida, where the sun is shining on Christmas Eve.

Koe wo Kikasete by BIGBANG

Their best Japanese song yet!! So pretty and everyone’s part was so perfect!!A must listen, I love Korean boy bands so much talent, and TOP. I LOVE YOU. Though you could use a haircut and his rap was digitalized, whatev, he’s fierce.

Mamoritai ~White Wishes~ by BoA

Pretty, pretty song! I reviewed it here.

Jingle Jingle Bell by 4minute

I like it for like 2 plays, then my head almost exploded from so much autotune when I tried to listen to it again lol. It’s good from time to time and it’s so cute and catchy, but someone please take away 4minute’s autotune, they’re using and abusing!!

I was also going to use Days by Ayumi Hamasaki but youtube has been stripped of Days by avex, boo!!

So happy holidays!

Review: Taeyang’s Wedding Dress MV


I’m completely blown away by the sheer beauty of the song and the music video. Just wow, I get it now, this overwhelming love that Taeyang’s fans have for him.

I’ve always been relunctant to accept any of my BIG BANG boys alone because I feel like the song is empty without the rest of the boys to balance each other out and keep some equilibrium, a nice in between rapping and singing, but there are always solo songs that are exceptions. Such as G-Dragon’s A Boy and Breathe (I never got into Heartbreaker), Seungri’s Strong Baby and now added to the list is Taeyang’s Wedding Dress.

Granted on first listen I thought it was a little boring but I liked it (that’s a big deal), and the only reason I pressed replay was because the music video was ust heartbreakingly amazing (it was like a mini-movie) and it left me asking…



why??? SO SAD. On the second listen is when I fully realized I truly LOVE this song, his vocals are amazing, his dancing is amazing, HE is amazing.

Anyway, mad props to Taeyang and I’m actually looking foward to some more music from him. YAHH!! I love little surprises like that.

Astrological Sign of the Month: Scorpio


Of course because this is a K-Pop/J-Pop blog I’m going to talk about the people who were blessed to be born under such a sign lol.

The things listed above do not represent all Scorpio’s too! Haha they do have some good qualities, I guess…

On to K-Pop our male Scorpio!


WOW, I wonder who this could be…(puts pondering look on face)


None other than Big Bang’s resident rapper, TOP.

Gosh this guy just oozes sex appeal, very Scorpio of him. He’s also alluring and mysterious! Gosh I luff him.

Real Name: Seung Hyun Choi

Date of birth: November 4th, 1987

So technically he is already celebrating his 22nd birthday in South Korea since it’s a day earlier there! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOP!!


Why you be so mad TOP? Oh right you’re a Scorpio, you’re naturally cranky lol. JK!!

By the way didn’t he look like he needed a haircut in Big Bang’s recent video for Koe wa Kikasete, well whatever he still looks fabulous! By the way BIG BANG’s Hallelujah, the song being used for TOP’s new drama, IRIS, was released today along with the video!

I like it what I hated about the video was that they kept inserting the drama’s audio over the song but luckily there’s a regular version on Youtube up now.  

On to the Japanese Scorpio, cheating boy bander (he’s part of NEWS & Kanjani8) Ryo Nishikido

Ryo Nishikido

Yummy…even that lost forlorn look on his face only makes him more desirable!

Birth date: November 3rd, 1984!!  Today is his birthday!! Here at least well here’s hoping he had an AMAZING scandal free birthday lol.

Ryo baby

Can you believe he used to be this little cutie?

Ryo now!

And now he’s this hottie…

Haha oh life, how I enjoy thee…Well I’ll update tomorrow with the female version to this! Hope you enjoyed this post!
