[Event] Big Bang Concert Ticket Launch at Fahrenheit88

I went for the ticket launch yesterday with a friend. The launch started at 10.30am, but by the time my friend and I arrived there at about 10.30am, there was already a HUGE crowd in line. We were practically at the end of the line despite being on time. There were a number of fans who stayed overnight from the previous day! So my friend and I stayed in queue for around 3 hours until we finally reached the ticketing counter. It was really tiring! But i’m glad I managed to get my tickets anyway. :) (more…)

[Review] Big Bang Monster Music Video


So how many of you are still alive after watching the music video? Haha ok well it was pretty much as epic as the teasers indicated! I’ll breakdown my review to a couple of sections such as the music itself, interpretation of the video, and their costumes/style.

The Music

The song starts off with the beautiful piano playing a tragic and sad tune. In an instant I knew it was gonna be a heartbreaking song. Then T.O.P and GD comes in and starts rapping alternately while the piano beat picks up, getting faster and livelier. I really love TOP’s deep voice while rapping the first part! *swoons*.

The rest of the song is a beautiful mix of Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri’s vocals mixed with some rap from GD & TOP in between.  The chorus is really catchy with the line going like “I love you! Baby i’m not a monster!…I need you! Baby i’m not a monster!”. Near the end, the beat slows down and the slight sound of a slow heartbeat is heard and suddenly the piano keys banged in one loud dramatic tone marking the start of the lively chorus again .  Soon after, the beat slows down once more with the violins playing a slow sorrowful tune and GD repeating the words  “I think i’m sick…i think i’m sick” and thus marking the end of one epic song!

Overall I think the music was beautifully done by switching between the slow and fast paced parts. I also liked how smoothly the rap parts blend together with the rest of the song. I fell in love with it on the first listen! (more…)

[Review] Thoughts on BigBang’s Alive Mini Album


Big Bang is back and one word to sum it up is genius! Their music has really matured a lot and i’m glad to hear that there’s a whole variety of music packed into one album. But before I go on and explain why I like each track, I need to admit to one thing. Well honestly I was listening to the tracks like 2am in the morning. Probably due to the lack of sleep, I just didn’t “feel” some of the songs like Ain’t no Fun and Love Dust. BUT! Yes but….after having a good night sleep and listening to the tracks again, I instantly liked all the songs. But take note that I said like. Not love. The ones that I truly love and can’t get enough are Blue, Bad Boy, Wings and Fantastic Baby. So i’ll just write some little notes here on my thoughts about each track.

[Bloggings] Thoughts on CN.Blue’s PV for “Where You Are”

I’ve always been a huge fan of CN.Blue and I love their catchy music and of course having 4 gorgeous men in the group is a plus point! A few thoughts about the PV though is that they just basically kept it simple on that part with shots of them playing their guitars and drums. As for the song, I love the beat and the catchy music but I would have preferred it if they used less English and more Japanese. I know they’re trying their best at their English, but too be honest it still does sound kinda Engrish to me especially at the chorus part (don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of them, but i’m just being honest here).

Besides, their Japanese sounds really good and fluent and I just think it would have been better if they used more of it here. I totally loved Jonghyun’s part at 2:43 which I feel is the best aspect of the song. ♥ The Japanese part at this point sounds so smooth and goes so well with the whole music feel. Overall I think it’s a great song but I personally feel that it would be better fully in Japanese.
