Well done again my friend, you did well today

Turning two next month, Day6 already has two EPs and one studio album (not to mention a number of singles) under their belt. So they shall have enough songs of their own to sing/perform on stage or during concerts by now — and to capture the listeners’ attention. But, if you’re searching their name on YouTube, you’re bound to find videos of them covering other artists’ songs, be it from fellow labelmates or other Korean or western singers/groups.

VS Arashi: The Special Games

There are two weekly programs that Arashi have been hosting as a group in the past decade, and VS Arashi is one of them. Started in April 2008 before moving to its ‘Golden Time’ slot in October 2009, it’s a game show wherein Arashi as the home team, aided by Plus One guest(s), takes on the away team (mainly celebrities) in a number of games — three when it was still a half-hour program and around five for its hour-long golden episodes.

For a TV show that has aired more than 400 episodes in 9 years, naturally there are games that stood the test of time and those that were shelved and never returned. Continue reading “VS Arashi: The Special Games”

Fight for My Way: on episode 11~16, final thoughts

“If growing up means your dreams fade, I’ll give up on growing up.”

You know the drill. If you’ve read my previous posts on this drama, you know my likes and dislikes. And they stay pretty much the same all series long. In other dramas, i’d be all ranty by now, but the fact that i am not doesn’t mean it’s all good, i just wish not sound like a broken record. It’s not that i’ll gloss over the issues either, but let’s say i’ve anticipated it that i’ve adjusted my expectations accordingly.

Rebel–Thief Who Stole the People: on episode 21~30, final thoughts

I’m really getting worse and worse about ‘final thoughts’ post on dramas i don’t cover regularly. The same goes for ‘series review’. Once i put off started writing shortly after watching the finale, i’d keep procrastinating until God knows how long that chances are i’m dropping it altogether in the end. Or i’ll feel compelled to finish what i started…long after i finished the show. Like Moonlight, i finally work on my closing post on Rebel two months after it ended.

Boku, Unmei no Hito desu: final thoughts

“Marriage is when, even after 50 years, you wake up in the morning and still think the person next to you is good. It’s a tough job.”

In romance or rom-com, it’s almost 100% guaranteed that the two on the poster are the OTP and thus will end up together. Likewise, in Boku Unmei, whether or not Makoto and Haruko will have a happy ending is a no-brainer. Moreover, we can be 100% sure that they’ll get married in the end. God says they’re fated partners after all! And the world needs their kid! Continue reading “Boku, Unmei no Hito desu: final thoughts”

Ohno on THE Yakai

Arashi is a group of five; i like each of them individually but i love them together. My next favorite thing is probably seeing them as pairs, regardless of the combination. Besides the two regular TV programs done by all five, there are a number of shows they host as individuals. That’s why even though i may not watch or follow those solo shows regularly, i’ll never miss the episode visited by another member. Continue reading “Ohno on THE Yakai”

Reverse: on episode 9~10, final thoughts

“Coffee drips down a drop at a time. The first drop is the most delicious and deep. The last drop is the most bitter. You must never put the last drop in.”

This narration opens episode 10, and going by the analogy, we have come to the final part of story. Let’s see if the last drop is indeed the bitterest. Continue reading “Reverse: on episode 9~10, final thoughts”
