Archives For Korean

Too much walking in the heat. I should relax watching tv, but Taiwanese tv is amazingly bad. All I do when it’s the time is watch Korean variety programs and music shows… even when they’re the same I watched the prior night. LOL

Hey, guys~ it’s nearly 9am in Peru time, nearly 10pm in Taiwan. Currently staying in Tainan… the longest we’ve stayed anywhere until now.

Visited three museums, including the History museum… the Fine Arts one (but that was another city) and some museum they’ve just setup, so we didn’t have to pay. Learned loads of stuff about Taiwan’s history with Mainland China, the Dutch occupation… and, of course, the Japanese occupation. Taiwan is a unique mixture of China and Japan, with a dash of Hawaii.

There’s loads of walking, and a lot of Taiwanese fearing us getting lost in the city, so we’ve gotten the reputation of the Peruvian tourists that can’t read Chinese. When we’re not walking, we’re eating ~ which is good to counter all the walking. I think I’ve literally drank my weight in bubble tea. Loads of milk tea, and I had some winter melon one today.

Same with street food… there’s just no stomach enough to try everything at least once. Though, I did go to a proper hot pot place tonight and had some very spicy soup. Luck is mine since I didn’t carry a camera then…

When we’re ready for bed — like I am now — there’s loads of TV. Funny thing is that MTV Taiwan and V channel are swamped with Kpop. I’ve never seen so many performances from Music Bank and Inkigayo. Similar with Kdrama… loads of them on air, even though they’re dubbed. Jpop is minimum, though MTV did show some Kat-tun mv like five times on a day.

Anyway, it’s getting late and I have an early start again. Will have to gather thoughts at a later date. Expect posts on Korean Air, American suing culture, Taiwanese tv shopping, and more~~~

Incheon Airport Part I
At Incheon Airport waiting for flight to Taipei. First few minutes in here, loving. Free high speed no hassle wi-fi. I’m easy to please.

Happy 2012!

How was the new year celebration?

Most importantly~ did you catch adorable Mana-chan performing? If you didn’t, the Maru Maru Mori Mori performance blended with the Arashi/Disney performance and anything with Disney is full of win for me. I found you this link on Nate.com of the Disney performance.

Mana-chan also had the most graceful fall on stage, that I swear it’s going to last all year and be name Most Graceful On-Stage Fall of 2012~~~ which wasn’t even 2012, but just for the sake of upload times, it was.

You can read my “review” of this years show over in: NHK scouts the web for clips, but we can’t help by talk about the Kouhaku~ blog post.

With this posting you know where I’m going, right? LOL

Anyway, here are the lyrics and translation of Going Crazy (미친 거니).

I kinda like that this it backwards to the rap songs with the female vocals xD Going Crazy is a female vocal song with backing rap, which goes opposite to Eminem feat. Rihanna’s Love the Way You Lie [MV], or Vico C’s Me Acuerdo [1].
