big bang 4th mini album

ok, i know i haven’t updated in quite a while (been busy) but i just had to post this.

today sees the release of big bang’s much anticipated comeback piece, which is their 4th mini album. and believe me guys, to say that this album is awesome, is an understatement. *full fangirl mode* quite frankly, it has exceeded my expectations, and i hope it exceeds yours too. so take a listen to it now, and enjoy the long awaited return of one of k-pop’s finest. ^^

limited edition customized gd & top beats by dr. dre

tomorrow, december 24, will see the release of the much anticipated limited edition (albeit unofficial) gd & top beats by dr. dre~

GD edition

TOP edition

they look wonderful don’t they? however, wearing these top of the line headphones comes with a steep price: 649,000 won. now that’s hella expensive.

[EDIT 2010-12-27]

you might have heard of this already, but the gd and top headphones are not official/authorized (meaning they are only customized, kind of like colorware-ing your beats… so therefore they are not covered by a warranty). see the official twitter page for beats by dr. dre for verification.

starting today, i’m watching a new drama. if you’ve read the shoujo manga of the same name, then you might know what it is~ the show is titled raifu.

raifu is an 11-episode midnight dorama which centers around bullying. it stars kitano kii as ayumu shiiba, a student who is a target of bullying at nishidate high school. the pack is led by queen bee manami anzai, played by fukuda saki.

juri ueno? nope. it's kitano kii.

as of writing, i have already watched until episode 4. i tell you, if this drama is meant to involve its viewers with the drama, then i’m absolutely reeled-in. i cannot even begin to describe how i despise the characters!

words cannot describe how much i hate hirose. absolutely the lowest. i hate her so much that i actually want to kick her ass sooo bad. XD

you’d normally think that the main villain is the one that’s supposed to be hated on the most, right? but for me it’s different. i absolutely adore mana’s character (and portrayal). she’s so good at being bad that you can’t help but love her. XD hirose, on the other hand… is annoying as hell. i actually enjoyed when she was being bullied for the first 2 episodes! first of all, she was quite arrogant with the whole magazine thing (and what’s up with giving the mag to ayumu? ugh) and second, she’s absolutely willing to sell out other people in order to not be picked on… what a bitch!

the rest of the class leaves much to be desired too. i think the only likeable characters are miki and hiraoka-sensei. i’m not too keen on ayumu either, because so far she’s such a wimp. i know she’s no makino tsukushi, but hell. what normal person would just stand by when she gets lynched by her own classmates? hello ayumu! iikagen ni mesamenasai!

hopefully, by episode 5 she gets her stuff together and retaliate. i’m all for character growth and all, and i do believe it does take time, but i think that time is about to run out. i’m quite a patient viewer and all… but i do have my limits. i’d like to cheer for a heroine who faces adversity head on, not one who runs away from it and cowers like a coward.

for now, i’m still hanging there! thank god the writing and pacing of this show isn’t boring… that’s one thing you can hold on to while watching this drama.

[EDIT 2010-11-21]

after one solid day of marathoning life, i’m finally done. *sigh of relief*

so what did i think of it?

imho, i think life is a pretty consistent drama. from the first episode until the last, you can expect to be at the edge of your seat. as i’ve said earlier, this drama’s pacing is freaking great! no draggy moments, just solid, efficient writing.

life‘s primarily a character driven show, so watch it bearing that in mind. trust me, the plot is not THAT complicated.

keep an eye out for mana. she does most of the heavy lifting when it comes to turning the gears of plot advancement in this dorama. XD oh, and watch out for ayumu too. even after all the stupidity of our main protagonist early on, she definitely redeems herself in later episodes (yay for character growth!). i won’t spoil anything, but you can expect her to finally stand up to her bullies (for real). methinks the ending was great too… it’s kind of like a fairytale finish but still pretty acceptable.

if you have time to spare, definitely go and check it out.

starting today, at the end of every post, i’m going to indicate my mood. just a little something to spice up each entry~ kkk. 😀
btw, my deepest gratitude goes out to Iris-Zeible of DA. she made that wonderful icon/s that i used (and will be using in the future) as a mood indicator. check out her page, she’s really cool and talented. ^^ thanks again, iris-chan~

「jyoou no kyoushitsu」

being a bum has its perks, and having the time to watch drama marathons is one of them~

right now, i’m watching the 2005 ntv drama jyoou no kyoushitsu (the queen’s classroom/ 女王の教室). if you haven’t heard of it, basically it revolves around a class of sixth graders (led by shiida mirai of 14 sai no haha fame). unfortunately for them, they are entrusted upon a devilish teacher by the name of akutsu maya (played by the always wonderful amami yuki). for one whole year, the students will have to bear with seemingly cruel and unjust classroom dealings.

currently, i’m watching episode 4, and so far so good! no complaints whatsoever, haha. amami yuki is briliant in her role as the ruthless akutsu maya (or AkuMa, as what her students lovingly call her behind her back) and shiida mirai is simply adorable as the student who firmly stands up to maya’s tyrannical rule. the writing impresses me, since it is so nicely paced.

so far, there are no draggy parts (which is a definite plus!) and the classroom conflicts are nicely laid out too… ah. i have a feeling this will turn out to be one of my favorite dramas ever. haha

if you have the time, please watch jyoou no kyoushitsu. it’ll be a nice break from all those crappy idol drama vehicles that’s usually just all hype.
[EDIT 2010-11-20]

yay! i’ve finished watching jyoou no kyoushitsu (along with the 2-part special), and it definitely did not disappoint. from beginning to end, i was hooked! i got so addicted watching this drama that i couldn’t take my eyes of the monitor. XDDD

if i had one complaint though, that would be with regards to miyauchi eiji (the problem student in the sp). somehow i felt they let him off easy.

*spoiler* who’d get away scot free with framing a teacher up and inflicting her with nearly fatal wounds? i mean, come on! is there no justice in the world? *end spoiler*

oh well… i guess i can’t always have my cake, no? haha. but aside from that, t’was all good! jyoou no kyoushitsu is a must watch, even if you’re not a fan of amami yuki, or shiida mirai. it’s THAT good, trust me.
