April Blessings~

April 17, 2017 — 2 Comments

It’s no longer Whee-in’s birthday in S.Korea, but it still technically is here— so, Happy Birthday Wheepup! You Spongebob-laughing tripe-and-raw-liver-eating laughing machine you. I still haven’t check out the recent Bday Vapp, but bless you, Mamamoo kids.

April started with blessings of Shiina Ringo releasing her concert DVD/Bluray Hyakkiyagyo 2015 (百鬼夜行2015) [which is the term used for onis, yokais, monsters and spirits whatevers doing a conga line through the night (LOL)]; then Gesu Kiwami are finally releasing their Daruma Ringo (達磨林檎) [which was supposed to released last year], which are set to be released in May. There were also announcements of a new BiBi album and a Mamamoo comeback.

Mamamoo, of course, have been blessing us all year— I’ve sorta lost track of the many song releases, but I’m pretty sure it was like this: LOVE for the Goblin OST, Solar’s collab with Luna and Hani for Honey Bee, Solar’s Emotion Part 4, San E’s collab with Hwasa in I Am Me, Jungkey’s son with Whee-in Anymore, Double Trouble Couple for the Strong Woman Do Bong Soon OST, and now eSNa’s collab with Hwasa Love Comes. Bless and poor, yo!

I’ve also just discovered DADARAY, Residente (otherwise known as the voice of Calle 13) released his new album [1]… and so did La Vida Boheme [1], Mary and the Witch’s Flower (メアリと魔女の花) LOOKS FREAKING AMAZING, I’ve been watching Sister’s Slam Dunk Season 2 and loving every minute of it, and Minzy’s made her official comeback with the release of Minzy Work 01 UNO and NINANO, as a main single.

Last night, of course, started with Minzy’s comeback, but got so much better with the announcement that Shiina Ringo did a CM for a Luxury Mall, but the song they did expanded into a digital single called Menukidori (目抜き通り), which is set to be released on the 20th, which is the day of the mall’s inauguration [1]. And then I found out that Jambinai released a new song called Damdamhi Jeogsigona (담담히 적시고나), which translates to “slightly wet,” which features the voice of folk singer Park Min Hee (박민희) [1].

Then I went to bed, and Mamamoo was in it. I talked (and laughed) a lot with Whee-in [this is the first time I interact, in broken English, with Mamamoo]. It was a party, and Shahrukh Khan was also there hahahahaha, so I got to shake his hand xD and then I went to talk to Hwasa, and she was telling me she was planning to come to Peru to visit Machu Picchu, so I was like- giving her tips. Sting was also there (so random!), and he had hair. HAHAHA.

Bless my Wheesa dream, though. Wheesa’s not my bias OTP, but bless them.

*Cries in Moo Tears*

I’m so old (∩︵∩) I’ve had so many feels while watching this 40min. interview of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast for Entertainment Weekly (and People? — are these two under the same company now? I’m out of the loop), I’m even considering re-watching a couple of episodes, despite the fact that re-watching things seem to be a luxury of time now.

I’ve always been a huge BtVS fan throughout my high school years— she went off to college while I was still in high school, and the show finished the year I went to Vancouver for studies. Most of the last season, I saw through bad quality downloads from a peer-to-peer program that no longer exists. LOL My first big salary, I spent on buying the seven seasons on DVD on one buy. Some people spend their first salaries on shoes, others on food— other kids are really good and help pay off their parents debts or give their first paychecks to their parents. I didn’t. I bought 7-seasons worth of DVDs. lol

So I have feelings.

Watch it here.

A couple of days ago it was announced that Yu Aoi had joined the cast of Mix (ミックス。), the table tennis movie starring Gakki and Eita. They have an Instagram account and just updated with a picture of Yu-chan with panda hair tie alongside Hiroyuki Morisaki, I suppose, playing her husband.

I love that because of the white restaurant getup, the panda hair ties, people are asking if they’re playing Chinese. Yu-chan’s character name is Yo, though. BUt Morisaki’s is Cho, so~ of course.

Mamamoo Leader SUN-BAE-NIM, yo! Happy Bday, you big ray of sunshine! Thank you for being who you are and for treating all the Mamamoo kids so well, especially when you’re a kid yourself. Thank you for giving so much of yourself, but, please! Don’t spoil us so much~ Always take good care of yourself, be healthy and, most of all, happy!

Thank you for always spending so much time sharing with the fans, even on your special day. And thank the Mamamoo kids who, despite the picking on, love Solar so much to the point that she shows us her Yeba grin. Love her and protect her.

There’s also a version available on CJ Entertainment. And their VLive.

I check the Yu Aoi search word on Twitter from time to time (not as often as I used to), and I ran into the posts announcing that Yu Aoi shot a movie adaptation of Mahokaru Numata’s (沼田まほかる) Kanojo ga Sono Na o Shiranai Tori-tachi (彼女がその名を知らない鳥たち, which translates to ‘The Birds She Doesn’t Know the Names Of‘ but there isn’t an official translation of the novel… yet.), alongside Sadao Abe.

I’ve still yet to watch Over Fence and Haruko Azumi, but with the Giuseppe Tornatore movie and the adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul, and this… 2017 is proving to be an active Yu-Aoi-fan year!

I’m a happy fan!

I’m also a lazy fan, I’ve only google-translate the article so I don’t know much about the movie, other than Numata’s mystery novels are in the style of Kanae Minato, and the wiki includes this priceless quote~

There has been an iyamisu (eww mystery) boom in Japan since around 2012. Iyamisu (eww mystery) is a sub-genre of mystery fiction which deals with grisly episodes and the dark side of human nature. Readers blurt out “eww” when they are reading iyamisu (eww mystery) novels.

Iyamisu, I love it. LOL Eww mystery. Adaptations of Kanae Minato’s novels are also pretty good.
