After some flame from their compilation of 135 Shots That Will Restore Your Faith in Cinema [1], Flavorwire is back with a new compilation~~~ this time around focusing on faces, their emotions and their beauty… to relative success. I don’t think I could fault them… I had enough with Wong Kar Wai (included multiple times), multiple Zhang Yimou shots (and a double appearance of Gong Li to boot!), there was Park Chan Wook, Guillermo del Toro, Leslie Cheung’s face.

It was a thing of beauty.

The only face I could possibly suggest would have been Greta Garbo’s last shot on Queen Christina, but I’m content.

Title: 2012 Brown Eyed Girls Tonight 37.2°C Concert – in Seoul
Date: 9PM, December 24th & 25th, 2012
Venue: Millennium Hall, Central City
Ticket Price: \110,000 (VAT included) / All standing
Age rate: 19 and older
Ticket Open: 6th November, 2012

I am mad excited about this concert, and mad jealous about it, because 1. Dude, it’s in Korea. I don’t do that type of tourism. xD 2. Chances of BEG actually stopping by Peru are close to null.

There are a number of reasons I’m excited for this… the main one being: it’s Brown Eyed Girls. Now, they’re all grown up and comfortable with themselves and this whole concert concept centers on the temperature of 37.2C which is the temperature the body reaches during the loveeeeee motion. I’m glad for them, that they get to play around with that.

The next best thing to actually being there for the Seoul concert, other than a concert in Lima of course ;P, would be a Blu-ray release (preferably) but I would settle for a DVD if they must.

Hmph! Have you seen this video of the international poster for Park Chan-wook’s English-debut, Stoker? I mean, it’s not enough that it’s Park Chan-wook, but it’s also got Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska, with a bunch of other good people. There’s this poster~~~

With the trailer edited with the making of the poster, weaving in and giving links to bits and pieces of the story, all layered on top with Emily Wells’ Becomes the Color. Any ideas on who designed/illustrated this?

brown eyed girls concert 37 2

Yes, please. Someone should make this happen in Peru~~~ like, cough~ Noizu Producciones. Cough. I would pay $300 bucks to watch an intimate unplugged with Brown Eyed Girls and to be up close. LOL And you know I’m cheap ass for concerts, but I’ll do it for BEG.

Recently, I’ve noticed that Kpop YouTube channels have been uploading their content with English subtitles!! That makes them official English subtitles — for some major groups like Brown Eyed Girls’ GaIn’s Bloom [MV] and Miss A’s I Don’t Need a Man [MV] (they’ve even added Simplified Chinese!) are recent examples — rendering in my opinion most (if not all) Kpop fansub groups useless.

There’s now no reason to upload an extra video with subtitles… at least in English [1].

Having said that… the quality of subtitles are very important when choosing your fansub group. It is, of course, the content and subtlety of the translation that matters the most, but in terms of hardsubs- it’s also about type-setting. It needs to be readable, and personal comments kept away out of the subtitles [1]. Matters should be as professional as possible… that also means language should be as neutral as possible.

You know I don’t really mind my songs not being translated… but it’s nice to find your favorite songs done the right way.

So thank you, JyariKpop, for your quality subs.

My favorite is, of course, SunnyHill’s Pray [1].
