The lover (2015)

The lives on Four unmarried couples who are living in an apartment house in the outskirts of Seoul is being documented over the period of 40 days.
Oh Do-si (35 years old) and Ryu Doo-ri (31 years old) live together in apartment number 609.
They both have temporary jobs, they have been dating for Five years and living together for Two.
Do-si is a good person, just a little childish at times and Doo-ri has little patience and can be very hard on him but they seem to like each other well enough, they just don’t want to get married.
They live the life of a married couple though and at times it looks as if the magic is gone from their relationship.
Apartment 610 houses Jung Young-joon and Choi Ji-nyeo, a couple who has been dating for Two years and living together for One.
Jung Young-joon is a 21 year old guitarist for an little known group, he doesn’t have any money and he lives with Choi Ji-nyeo, who is 33 years old, in her apartment.
Naturally, Young-joon is very immature and often teases Ji-nyeo about her age.
It looks like Ji-nyeo is aware of the fact that this relationship will not last forever.
Lee Joon-jae lives all alone in apartment 709, he hardly ever leaves his place.
He is shy and quiet and likes to live on his own but has to look for a roommate for financial reasons.
Enters Takuya, a very friendly, open and handsome Japanese guy who travels the world.
Joon-jae soon adjust to having another person in his place, especially since he starts falling in love with his seductive roommate.
Park Hwan-jong and Ha Seol-eun are a young couple who live in apartment 510.
They have been living together for only Seven days and already there are troubles in paradise.
Seol-eun is glutenous and selfish and as time goes by, Hwan-jong starts to realize that she might not be the right person for him (I’ve actually realized it from a very earlier stage).
What I didn’t like this series?
It only has 12 episodes but it took forever to finish it because the writing is not even.
Although it tries to be realistic (The character names are the actors real name, to create a more realistic feeling), there are scenes that can’t possibly happen in real life, like Takuya almost killing Joon-jae with his farts (I guess that it was supposed to be funny but I am not a fan of this kind of cheap humor) and Do-si’s attempts to take an unflattering photo of Doo-ri.
If you want to be realistic, be but if you want to roam into fantasy, you are confusing me a little bit.
Plus, there is great focus on Doo-ri and Do-shi, Young-joon and Ji-nyeo and the rest of the couples get very little attention.
For me, even th characters that you get to see more, were under developed and I didn’t really get attached to any of them.
Why I liked this series?
There is a gay couple. It’s the second time (not counting all the bromances that you get to see) that I’ve seen gay men in series.
Despite the fact that you can hardly see them, because the Two main couples, dominate the story-line and despite the fact that they spend most of the time, being evasive, it’s still takes some courage to decide to place Two gay man as a legit couple, among the others.
They are just the most interesting couple there, I’ve seen many comment from people who liked them better than the others, so it’s strange that they ended up with such a small slice of screen time.
As a whole, you can watch this series to pass the time and Takuya and Jae-joon are really cute :).
Favorite moment 1 – Do-si and Doo-ri are making spicy Ramen 😀 .
Favorite moment 2 – A blanket shaking contest :D. This is a brilliant scene.
Favorite moment 3 – Young-joon’s and Pung’s fight over the remote control.
Favorite moment 4 – Young-joon returns to take his old pair of Jeans, I must admit that I cried.

Choi Sang-hyun (AKA T.O.P)

I know that I’ve written about him before but this is my place and I will do as I please, so there.
The past few days were really hard for me and for other fans of “Big bang”and T.o.P.
I will not get into the whole ugly mess because you can easily find everything on-line but I will say something that needs to be said.
I can only speak of myself but, T.O.P is important for me simply because he makes me happy.
I love his singing and rapping voice, I love the way he moves, I like the way he writes (I am eagerly awaiting a solo CD), I like his jokes and the way he carefully choses his words when he speaks.
I love the way he is unstoppable when he starts doing silly things, I like the way he is serious when he talks and deals with the things that he loves, like art.
I’ve started off watching “Big bang” interviews and the first thing that I remember is T.O.P with his crazy blue hair, sitting on the presenter’s lap.
When he was asked why he did it, he didn’t know.
He made me curious and then I’ve heard “Doom dada” and realized that this man is brilliant.

Right now, at this moment, T.O.P’s health situation is unknown – His doctors claim that he is asleep, the police claims that he was conscious when he arrived to the hospital and his mother just said that he was unconscious and he still is.
I’m not a medical expert but yesterday was a nightmare for me and today promises to be the same exact way.
I’m not a religious person, so I can just address any power that exists in this univers and beg it to bring T.O.P back to us, because he is one of a kind and when you are one of a kind, you should be guarded like a precious jewel.

I can only hope for the best and wonder how can it be, that a talented young leader, such as T.O.P found himself in such a situation.
Why was he treated like a criminal when all that he did was smoke weed and why wasn’t he taken to the hospital after he was first found and couldn’t open his eyes?

I love you Choi Seung-hyun, you strange and beautiful person.
I want you to be well, I want you to come back to us. Please.

Nam Taehyun

This post has been one that I’ve been planning for a while now and I’m glad that I’m finally going to publish it.
Last year, I was introduced to the whole boy band documentary scene, when watching “Big bang”.
I started looking for other such videos and found a doc about “Winner”.
After watching that, I’ve also watched “Who’s next :Winner”.
One thing that stood out in both these programs, was the fact that Taehyun’s writing and composing skills were approved and supported by Yang Hyun-suk (YG’s CEO).
I think that basically, Taehyun had the great luck of landing in a company that respected his style and didn’t try to shape him into yet another hit machine maker and so, instead of getting a “Big bang” wannabe, we got songs like “Sentimental” and “Baby baby”.
On the other hand though, I got the feeling that Taehyun wasn’t really happy.
At one point he admitted that at times, he is not sure if this is what he wanted to do.
At last, at the end of 2016, after “Winner” went on a very long hiatus and all kinds of rumors were spread, Taehyun has left “Winner” and YG.
Since I was in the middle of watching “Who’s next : Winner”, I felt a little cheated 😀 but also very worried.
Moving from getting supported by such a strong company as YG to being on your own, no matter how talented you are, is hard.
I don’t know what health issues Taehyun was fighting but I was cheering for him all the way and started following his IG and Soundcloud account, to see what he was up to.
Gladly, he kept on creating, then he gathered musicians and formed a new band called “South club”.
Shortly after that, he established his own label and tomorrow (or in fact, today, since it’s already the 26.5.2017), a new song and video are going to be revealed.
Am I excited? Yes, I am.
Why am I so happy for Nam Taehyun? Well, for me it’s the victory of talent over the system.
Not everyone were ment to be singing and dancing machines in a boy band, where the way you look and sound are being decided for you by other people and you constantly have to do things as part of a group.
Taehyun is obviously an individual that wanted to pave his own way in the musical scene and I hope that he will be successful.
I think that he is destined for great things, what do you think?

Here is Namtae and “South club” in their second single and MV.
I love it, don’t you?

Here is “South club”s first song and MV:

Here is “Winner”s Taehyun, singing “I’m young”.
By the way, have you noticed that we never got to see how Taehyun has escaped from the apartment without being discovered by his ex-girl’s man? It was the closet for one moment and then a sad walk down the street.

Here’s the link to Taehyun’s account on Soundcloud

Jealousy incarnate or Jiltueui hwasin (2016)

Pyo Na-ri is weather girl who works as a temp at SBC TV station.
She has failed the auditions for an anchorwoman and what’s even worst, she still has to work as a temp, along with the women against whom she competed, for the anchorwoman’s spot. They are now regular workers at SBC.
In order to support her teenage brother, Pyo Chi-yeol, who is the number one student in his high-school, Na-ri volunteers to do odd jobs at SBC, in hope that her hard work will be a appreciated and she will be promoted.
Lee Hwa-shin is an arrogant Korean foreign correspondent who has been living abroad for the last Three years.
He has escaped the country after ruining his brother’s good name and business for a scoop and has been guilt tripping about it ever since his family has disowned him.
Lee Jong-shin, Hwa-shin’s older brother was once a successful businessman but is now a drunk, who is twice divorced and is raising his daughter, Red, on his own.
Jong-shin’s first wife, Kye Sung-sook is Red’ mother, once a reporter and now an anchorwoman at SBC.
Bang Ja-young, Jong-shin’s second ex-wife is a chief announcer at SBC and is Sung-sook’s superior.
The two women have lost connection with Red and are bitter rivals at work.
Lee Ppal-gang (AKA Red) is Sung-sook and Jong-shin’s daughter.
She loves her father and seeing him ruined, has caused her to become a troubled kid and a bad student who is last not only in her class but in the whole school.
Red is Chi-yeol and Oh Dae-goo’s classmate and they are also neighbors and best friends.
Kim Rak is a chef and the owner of Rak restaurant, he is Na-ri’s landlord and cares for her, her brother and his friends as if they were his own family.
When Ja-young and Sung-sook move in with Red, they compete for Rak’s heart.
When the chance to help a broadcast in Thailand presents itself, Na-ri offers to join the news team as a jack of all trades – A hair stylist, dresser and makeup artist.
On the plane, Na-ri takes Go Jung-won‘s place and he falls in love with her at first sight.
Jung-won is a rich and handsome chebol, he is also Hwa-shin’s best friend and soul brother from youth.
At the airport in Thailand, Na-ri bumps into Hwa-shin. Oh joy, he treats her like dirt.
While forcing Hwa-shin to dress up for his broadcast, Na-ri accidentally touches his chest and thinks that she can feel a lump.
Being the granddaughter and daughter of cancer patients, Na-ri is worried about Hwa-shin.
Jung-won and Na-ri meet again on set, when he comes to visit Hwa-shin and they get to spend some time together.
Hwa-shin has returned to Korea and face the implications of his treacherous scoop against his brother.
When Jong-shin drinks too much and falls down the stairs, sustains a blow to the head and is hospitalized in a coma, Red’s friends rush in to help her cope and her mother’s resume connection.
Na-ri plans on filling the free national recruitment form and reapplying for an anchorwoman’s spot but before she manages to do it, she is tricked by a fellow weather girl and shows up drunk to work, which results in her dismissal.
Jung-won gets hold of Na-ri’s cellular phone number and asks his secretary to call her up and complain about the weather forecast, after Na-ri has told him on the plane, that she dreams of having someone call her up and complain, as a proof that someone watches her weather broadcasts.
Despite Na-ri’s warnings, Hwa-shin doesn’t think that a man can get breast cancer but has a reality check when he has a checkup after a car accident, and discovers that the lump in his chest in cancerous.
Na-ri has a benign lump that needs removal and she finds herself recovering from the procedure, in the same hospital room as Hwa-shin.
Meanwhile at SBC, Na-ri’s drunken weather report, has high ratings and they want her to come back to work at once.
Despite the fact that she went through an operation, Na-ri makes her way from the hospital to the station, where she manages to complete her bit and then faints in the arms of Jung-won, who takes her back to the hospital.
When Jong-shin dies at the hospital, after a phone call to Hwa-shin and a note that he leaves for Rak, Sung-soo and Ja-young, are busy looking for Red and at last, find out where she lives after meeting Rak.
Rak knows that Jong-shin’s note gives instructions as to which mother should take care of Red but he decides to check and see for himself who is the best mother.
Ja-young and Sung-soo both decide to move in with the very reluctant Red and take care of her.
Since Na-ri is the only one who knows about Hwa-shin’s condition, she is the only one who tries to take care of him.
While trying to fight his developing feelings for her, Hwas-sin, sets up a date between Na-ri and Jung-won and has to watch as his best friend and the woman that he likes, start dating.
Will Hwa-shin betray his best friend and try to win Na-ri’s heart, after despising and rejecting her for Three years?
Not knowing that Rak has a problem with the ladies and is interested in them just because of the note, Sung-soo and Ja-young, both develop a crush on him.
As it happens, Rak is Jung-woon’s uncle and Kim Tae-ra, Jung-woon’s mother is trying to help a problem that he has with special pills.
The pills seem to work and Rak is now interested in Red’s two mothers.
Which one will he end up with, if at all?
What I liked about this series –
Apart from Hwa-shin’s illness, there aren’t any secrets and problems are usually taken care of quickly enough. Even the much expected “I am sick so I’m going to disappear without saying anything and leave you all alone/behave as if I hate you all of a sudden and breakup with you, without telling you the real reason behind it” is being avoided.
Hwa-shin and Jung-woon are true friends and they are honest with each other and with Na-ri and this series doesn’t have the all too familiar “best friend who turns into a hateful person so the heroine’s choice is obvious and easy” syndrome.
This drama starts off with the very strange feeling that Gong Hyo-jin is playing the same, weird and annoying character that she has played in “Master’s sun” (minus the whole seeing ghosts deal).
Soon enough, though, an explanation is offered for her strange behavior and this turns into a very nice series that has some serious themes along with the usual lovey dovey one.
What I didn’t like –
Why, oh why does Na-ri keep on touching Hwa-shin’s chest with no explanation? Explain why you are doing it and then just stop.
The strange song at the wedding.
Jo Jung-suk is very cute when he dances and sings but it looked like they really just wanted him to sing so the OST can sell well and didn’t have any other excuse to have him perform like this, at any other part of the series.
Hwa-shin’s betrayal seems a bit strange. Didn’t he know that advertising such a scandal in the news will ruin his brother? If he did, he is not much of a brother so why bother to come back and search for his niece?
Hwa-shin is portrayed as a real asshole right from the start – He is rude to some guy because he wants his shirt and his girl, he is being very rude and cruel to Na-ri when she has a crush on him and then, when they are dating and she has chosen him over Jung-woon, he drops her out of the election broadcast in favor of someone else.
Jung-woon blames Hwa-shin for not telling Na-ri that he was not interested in her and letting her continue with her one-sided love for him but really, I think that Na-ri could have figured it by herself since Hwa-shin didn’t hide his contempt and dislike for her.
The story between Rak and the mothers is not fully developed, which is a shame.
Favorite moment 1 – Hwa-shin is having his breast examined. This bit has actually made me burst into laughter.
Favorite moment 2 – Hwa-shin and Na-ri’s bra discussion.
Favorite moment 3 – Jung-won spoons Hwa-shin
Favorite moment 4 – Jung-woon drags Hwa-shin on the beach, while Na-ri happily collects octopuses.
Favorite moment 4 – Hwa-shin asks the women of SBC to date him.
favorite moment 5 – A sweet and funny bed scene. Turtlenecks are so annoying 😀 .

Weightlifting fairy Kim Bok Joo or Yeokdo-yojeong Gim Bok-ju (2016 – 2017)

Kim Bok-joo is a 21 year old weightlifter and gold medalist who attends a sports university.
Bok-joo’s mother died when she was young and she is brought up by her father, Kim Chang-gul, who owns “Bok chicken” restaurant.
Chang-gul’s younger brother, Kim Dae-ho helps at the restaurant and is also an actor.
Jung Joon-hyung, who attends the same university is a talented swimmer with a trauma that stand in his way to success.
The rhythmic gymnastic team and the weightlifter team are bitter enemies and when a rhythmic gymnast, blames the weightlifters for stealing their clothes and Kim Bok-joo’s lucky T-shirt disappears, things get out of hand.
Joon-hyung almost runs over Bok-joo with his bike and then drops a lacy handkerchief on the grass, which Bok-joo finds and keeps.
When the girls discover that a pervert has been stealing their clothes, Bok-joo blames Joon-hyung, because of the handkerchief but after the real pervert is found, Bok-joo has to admit that she has wrongly accused Joon-hyung and return returns his handkerchief.
They both suddenly remember that they once studied in the same elementary school for a short while and Bok-joo even saved Joon-hyung’s life when he was fell out of his class’ window and landed on her.
From then on, Joon-hyung starts annoying and pestering Bok-joo.
Song Shi-ho is senior at the university and rhythmic gymnast with a silver medal,
To her dismay, Bok-joo has to share her room with Shi-ho, who apart from being a gymnast and therefor, a weightlifter’s nemesis, is also Joon-hyung’s ex girlfriend.
Shi-ho’s relationship with Joon-hyung, got in the way of her gymnastic career and so she broke up with him, at a difficult time in his life.
After he has helped her and sheltered her from the rain with his umbrella, Bok-joo falls in love with Jung Jae-yi, a doctor who works as a dietitian and Joon-hyung’s older brother.
Despite the fact that she can’t possibly go on a diet if she wants to compete and win weightlifting contests, Bok-joo decides to join Jae-yi’s advertised diet program as an excuse to see him.
Joon-hyung has fun teasing and tormenting Bok-joo, even more so after he discovers that she likes his brother.
Bok-joo is doing great and is losing weight but then, her coacher decides that she has a chance of winning a medal if she gains a few kilos and joins the 63 Kilos class.
Bok-joo would have jumped at the chance to eat more at any other time but gaining weight goes against the diet program that she is on because she wants to meet Jae-yi.
Meanwhile, Shi-ho is desperately trying to control the uncontrollable and natural process of getting older and having a woman’s body.
Frustration and stress makes her sleepwalk and binge eat.
Her parents, who have been supporting her despite being poor, decide to get a divorce, her coach is not pleased with her and criticize her mistakes.
Si-ho, who needs someone to lean on, desperately tries to get back with Joon-hyung, who is not interested in her anymore.
Jung Nan-hee is small, chubby and chatty and is the “expert” when it comes to guys.
Lee Seon-ok is tough and silent, the two are weightlifters, roommates and Bok-joo’s best friends.
Go Ah-young is Jae-yi’s best friend, she has been in love with him for years.
Jo Tae-kwon is Joon-hyung’s roommate and best friend.
Yoon Deok-man is the weightlifting team’s coach, he is so devoted to the team that despite his poor financial state, he tries to support the team by buying them food with his own money.
Choi Sung-eun is the weightlifting team’s assistent coach.
She is a strong and confident person who cares deeply about the team members and Deok-man.

Here is the annoying thing. In almost every drama that I’ve watched, there is the career driven ex-girlfriend, who ends the relationship all of a sudden and then comes back and demands to continue the relationship, as if nothing has happened.
Most times, it happens right when her ex-boyfriend has found a new girl that he is happy with.
Here, at least, Shi-ho feels bad about what she is doing and is aware of the fact that since she was the one responsible for destroying her relationship, she has no one to blame but herself.
I also really didn’t like the way Bok-joo was forced to eat, after her coaches found out that she was going to the diet clinic.
Sung-eun even hits here, which is unacceptable.
I can understand the anger because both her father and the coaches have invested so much in her and she is the hope for a medal and blah blah blah but hitting a student because you think that he did something wrong and you are disappointed in him? Force feeding him huge amounts of food? I didn’t like that one bit.
I also didn’t like the fact that someone as beautiful and healthy as Bok-joo decides to go on a diet but at least, she was doing it because she wanted to see her first love and she didn’t go on one of these crazy diets on her own but was under a doctor’s supervision.
From what I’ve read on Wikipedia, this series was a commercial failure, which proves that not every good series is a success.
The actors are good, the writing (apart from a few glitches… I mean, A kid is falling out of the window and lands on another kid and none of them is hurt?)is very good and I think that this is one of the most believable and natural relationships that I’ve ever seen in a series.
I liked this series, it’s sweet and heartwarming.
Favorite moment 1 – Jung Nan-hee is taking a drunken selfie and disturbing people at the pub.
Favorite moment 2 – Bok-joo infects Joon-hyung with her cold.
Favorite moment 3 – Joon-hyung tries to cheer Bok-joo up by taking her to dinner and a club.
Favorite moment 4 – “Kim Boj-joo, swag.” 😀
Favorite moment 5 – An angel and a devil in the amusement park.
Favorite moment 6 – Bok-joo finds Joon-hyung floating in the pool.

Bolbbalgan4

Watching “Weekly idol” is a great way to get to know new… well, idols :).
Bolbbalgan4 is a duo, a great duo of two slightly awkward, young women who really know how to write songs and perform them.
Woo Ji-yoon plays the guitar and bass guitar, she also raps and sings back-vocals while Ahn Ji-young provides the main ones.
The studio version and the live ones that I’ve heard are really good and they are not signed to one of the big companies so good for them for making it.
I must say that a little part of my affection for these two, derives from the fact that they do not dance.
As much as watching your idols dance on stage when singing is fun and cool, it is also very hard for the singer.
For me, it spoils part of the fun of listening, since you can never know if the show could have been better, had the singer been standing in one spot instead of dancing.
Other than that, I don’t know how to dance so it makes me really relate to these two and love them ever better for it :D.

Here’s the horribly cute video of “Tell me you love me”.
My absolute favorite part of this song, is the modulation that comes strangely and surprisingly enough at the end of the song.

Here is a live performance of the same song.

Kang Dae-sung or Daesung or D-Lite (Big bang)

When I was in high-school, I had a classmate who was always smiling.
I’ve met her again, about two years ago in a class reunion and when I’ve told her that I remember her always laughing, she said:”If only you knew how much pain was behind my smile.”

When I first started watching “Big bang” interviews, I thought that Daesung was ugly.
I’ve watched the documentary which was made before their debut and Daesung was this thin kid with bad skin and a high voice.
He seemed to be very timid and introvert and he told a story about his dad that made me think that he had a very hard time at home.
Smiling means “I am friendly and mean no harm. Please love me.” but it also means “There is nothing wrong, see? I am smiling so all is well.”
The fact that he was always smiling, to the point where he freaked out G-dragon and made T.O.P annoyed, gave me the impression that he was used to hiding his feeling from others and dealing with his problems on his own.

This feeling was confirmed after I’ve watched other videos and interviews with the group, in which they’ve admitted that although Daesung is someone that is a good listener and they can speak with him about eberything, they know him the least.

What’s more, the narrator of the “Big bang” documentary, had no problem with telling the audience that YG’s employees used to refer to Daesung as the ugly kid.
I don’t know what kind of self esteem Daesung had at that point but I’m sure that it wasn’t much fun, knowing that people thought of him as ugly.
On the other hand though, the narrator also said that right from the beginning, Daesung was the most popular member of the group among the fan girls.
My guess is that it was his smile.
Daesung said on “Come to play” that he was told that he was chosen to be a YG trainee because of his smile but I find that hard to believe, considering his great voice and his dancing talent.

I watched other shows and interviews and as time passed, I found that Daesung was one of these rare people who becomes really attractive with time, without changing anything about his facial features.
In my family, we call these kind of people – The beautiful uglies.
These are people who might not have perfect features but they have this magic and charm that makes them irresistible when you watch them.
They become beautiful and attractive.

What makes Daesung so attractive?
He has a great voice, he’s a great dancer, he knows how to play the drums and that makes him really cool, singing while drumming is not as easy as he makes it look.
He is a really funny guy and a brilliant comic, I would love to see him acting in a movie or a series (I’m just about to start watching “What’s up”, so stay tuned for the review :)).
Apart from all of these, he has no problem laughing at his own expense, which I adore.
As T.O.P mentioned in an early video, Daesung likes to read and I am a librarian so yes, he gets extra points for expanding his mind :* .
Last but not least, I love him dearly because from what I’ve seen, he is the only member of “Big bang” who didn’t do anything to him face, surgically wise.
You can argue but it’s obvious that Seungri, Taeyang, T.O.P and G-dragon had different noses when they were younger.
It’s also obvious that although they don’t look so different from what they’ve looked like before, they still look much better.
Daesung looks almost the same as he did in the debut videos with one big difference though, he has a killer body now.
He didn’t fix his nose or his teeth, he took good care of his skin so it looks smooth and amazing now and he worked out.

I know that he had problem with his voice and was plagued by stage fright because of it.
I know that after his accident, he locked himself in his dorm room and didn’t want to see anyone. He admitted that he thought of ending his life.
G-dragon said that Daesung is the kind of person who will never take the credit when things go well but will always blame himself when things go badly, Taeyang said that Deasung is wise beyond his years, T.O.P said that Daesung is very smart, Seungri said that Daesung is like a grandmother, always worrying and taking care of group members.

I don’t know what Daesung thinks of himself but I suspect that he is still his worst critic.
It’s obvious that he is a very hard worker but when he talks of his skills he always makes them seem less than they are, saying that he can’t really dance and that his voice is humble and weak.

Hi there Daesung, you are a great dancer, you have an amazing voice, your drumming kicks ass.
You are smart, so smart that you are the only one of Big bang who doesn’t have an account on any of the social platforms and so you save yoursel from the idiocy of some people, who can’t control their desires and their tongues.
(In a recent interview to Anan Magazine, Daesung said that he did open an Instagram account at one point, just out of curiosity but never really used it because he finds little interest in experiencing life through the lens of a camera instead of looking at the real thing.
If this isn’t a smart way of living, I don’t know what is.)
You are so very funny, you can’t really learn that kind of funny… even if you claim that you’ve learned it from T.O.P.
You are not a copycat, you are the original thing with all your wrong and all of your rights.
You are beautiful, really and truly and as time goes by, you just get handsomer.

Here is Daesung, singing a 2NE1 song called “Ugly”.
I like this version because it takes courage to sing such a song when you were once considered to be the ugly kid of your group and perhaps, you still feels this way from time to time and also, this gives Daesung the chance to sing Rock and he is really good at it.

 

I added this because, well, because Daesung seems to be not only a great singer and performer but also a good support system to people, another good example (although on a different level, since these people are best friends and group mates) the way Daesung takes care of T.O.P.
Dara wanted to learn to drum, YG objected (Pfff, really. What’s up with him?) but Deasung supported and encouraged her to try.

For me, by the way, trying to stop someone from discovering his talents because… what? She is a woman, looks delicate and it can “hurt her image”? is a sign of narrow mindedness, so boo to you on this, YG.
