my addicKtion 2/27/12

*Originally posted on dongsaeng's personal private blog on 2/27/12*

I'm toying with the idea of introducing a segment here on the ol' blog dedicated to my addic-K-tion.  The name is still a work in progress, but it will feature music or clips or reviews or whatever is currently floating my addicKted boat.  Originally I was going to name it "Shoving all Things Korean Down Your Throat Some More Until You Just Want to Scream and Run Away", but it was a bit too long, and the acronym "SATKDYTSMUYJWSRA" didn't flow trippingly off the tongue, so I shortened it to just plain "my addic-K-tion".  You're welcome.  Anyway, it will hopefully be a semi-regular feature here and you can do with it what you will.  But I do hope that some of you might get brave and take a nibble every now and again because there is a giant, wonderful world of entertainment out there beyond our borders just waiting for the adventurous to explore.

This weekend I fell in love with two songs and videos.  Both are friendly for the Western-eared.  You don't have to like Kpop to like these songs.  You don't even have to understand all of the lyrics - music is one of those things that is able to break through the language barrier.  It's a marvelous thing.

This first one is by a young man named John Park.  Apparently he was on last season's American Idol.  I don't watch AI, so I can't tell you much more, but there you have it.  I found both the song and video here to be mesmerizing.  I can't stop listening to it.  So, I thought I'd share because I love you all so much :)

This next one is from an hugely popular Kpop group, Big Bang.  This was a highly anticipated comeback song for the group.  It came out a few days ago and is already up to nearly 9 million views.  Go ahead, see what all the buzz is about for yourself.  You know you're curious....

I have so much I want to share, but I have to save something for other posts.  So, next time on "my addicKtion", I will be reviewing two dramas that I just finished this past week that I am completely in love with, Wild Romance and Dream High.
