N-Train Covers Boyz II Men’s “End of the Road”

Not bad! These guys (Korean vocal group N-Train) are quite talented! Just a little polishing here and there and they’re good to go. I am constantly amazed at the passion, dedication, determination and talent displayed by these these Korean artists. Enjoy!

Old Soul Kpop: Brown Eyes

Today was a rainy, cold dreary day and I was in the mood for some smooth sounds. I wandered around youtube and thankfully stumbled across an old kpop duo named Brown Eyes. They came out in the early 2000s releasing 4 albums. The albums were mostly R&B ballads and from what I’ve heard so far, these guys were amazing. They never went on music shows or really did any type of promotions. They actually turned down some awards because they wanted to keep the focus on their music and not on them. Their last album was released back in 2008 and  have since gone their separate ways. There are a few songs and m/v’s on youtube but this song I’ve had on repeat all afternoon. Grab a glass of wine, light some candles and enjoy!

Real Asian Men Dont Come with English Subtitles Pt lll

New reader? Check out Parts 1 and 2 linked below ^_^

So I’m guessing everyone has been curiously awaiting this post since I left off right when he called me at midnight.

 

Him: Hey are you awake? I need to talk to you.

Me:Duh I’m awake if I’m answering your calllll, what is it? (said in Korean)

Him: Aigoo (yah he really said that) don’t be that way listen. I did a lot of thinking and I was wrong, I was really selfish and I’m sorry and I miss you so much.

Me: really? Ok. ( I seriously didn’t know what to say considering I didn’t think it was a big deal anyway so I decided to drag it out..meanwhile I was still watching Jae Joong on YouTube so my focus was else where ^_^ )

Him: Dont be mad anymore ok? I wanna see you.

Me: I’m not freakin mad and um before I decide to see you I need to talk to you about some things. For one stop trying to tell me what to do especially since you’re not my bf. I don’t like it; I obviously don’t listen to you so just stop. Also we don’t have to text ALL THE TIME. Calm down with all that pleaseeee!

Well we continued to discuss how American girls for the most part don’t appreciate being damn near stalked and being told what to do all the time. I stuck with his plan of picking me up after my lesson and I have to say he did listen. During the week he really didn’t text as much as he was previously. It was still excessive according to normal standards but it was an improvement. He only sort of relaxed with the dominant thing but not quite; however I seemed to have gotten use to it and he seemed to have gotten used to me talking back and not listening. We developed our own form of communication.

He’s def on the insecure side considering the fact I’d talk about something like a new hairstyle or whatever and he would respond with “You’re pretty enough” Uhh ok? What exactly does that mean sir? o_0 Basically he explained that I was already too pretty for him and I dont need to be any prettier. Seriously a lot of these Koreans and their low self-esteem, insecurity and self-hatred just urk me. However even though I’m “pretty enough” that doesn’t stop him from saying things like…

“Dont eat ramen a lot, you’ll get fat”

“Dont wear your makeup for too many hours, you’ll mess up your skin”

“Wear your hair tied back so you can look really beautiful”

” I like your natural curl hair (not curly but “curl” so FOB cute!) wear it that way not straight all the time”

Like O.M.G! Dude stay out of my beauty business worry about YOUR look and only appreciate mine THANKS!

Friday night 7pm he was there to pick me up and we shared ramen and both ordered bubble tea..I had Milk Black tea and he had Taro. I loved it because he did exactly what I want my future Idol boyfriend to do! He wanted us to order the bubble tea because the cup it came in was soooo super cute! Ha! He even said if I put my hair up in two buns I’d look just like the little cartoon.I beg to totally differ I do not look like that little girl -_-

After dinner we walked arm and arm towards Times Square and then it happened! While waiting for the street light to change he looked right at me and STOLE OUR FIRST KISS!  I was seriously shocked and pushed him away calling him a “Kiss Stealing Slut!” And in true K-Drama fashion he grinned, walked right up to me with his tall 6 foot,  2PM Junsu looking self rocking his black baseball cap, skinny jeans and Goo Joon Pyo style black pea coat with the fur collar pulled me in and KISSED ME AGAIN! His lips truly like pillows…his kiss seriously soft, gentle and OMG he can kiss! I was like OMO!

The rest of the night we spent at the M&M store in Times Square where we looked at pajama bottoms and he decided that one day we’ll get “couples pajamas”.I took pics of him with M&M dolls and of course he gave the “peace” sign in every pic. We went to L’Occitane where we sprayed each other with perfume decided on which scent best suited me…The almond oil topped with the Rose perfume if your curious ^_^ At a nearby lounge we indulged in cocktails and beer, we sat super close, he asked if I was wearing circle lenses and had plastic surgery..uh no and no. He has an obsession with my features as I’ve said before. We shared kisses and stories and he asked to be my boyfriend once again.

I felt like someone was shining a hot light on me. Seriously whyyy does he keep asking me?! I even told him straight out at one point that I have commitment issues. I’m the type who always drops one guy when another one better comes along. I mean how does that make me look like girlfriend material in his eyes?! Sooo what was I suppose to say? What was I suppose to do?! He was totally killing my drinking buzz so with another gulp of beer I turned to him, took his hands in mine, gazed into his eyes and said.. “Oppa..we dont need to label this. The way it is right now is just fine..lets just have fun and go with the flow because it’s so good right now.” Once again there was that ” oh this is American Style” response from him -_- Suuuree yeah ok but NO. Well that seemed to work for the moment except the most unexpected thing happened right after we left. Before we parted ways we were standing on the sidewalk talking and suddenly without any kind of warning what so ever he said…”Saranghae”

To be continued…

Real Asian Men Dont Come with English Subtitles Pt II

I knew there was going to be a part two of my personal K-Drama but I had nooo idea how interesting the events would be. If you’re a new reader or you’ve just been chillaxing under a rock the whole time and have no clue what this is about refer to

https://blackwomenlovebi.wordpress.com/2011/12/03/real-asian-men-dont-come-with-english-subtitles/

Sooo first I want to address HIS looks. I’ve gotten questions on Twitter and a comment on the blog so I figured I’d humor you all. I’m not about to toss his pic up here but I will say he realllly resembles 2PM’s Junsu. Same eyes, same smile, same mouth, face shape everything just screams JUNSUUUUU!!! Of course I’m taking total advantage by having him grow his bangs out alittle and tweak his brows so I can have my very own Idol look-alike. Dont even judge me! Its sooo much fun and you probably would do the same thing!

Now here’s what happened and let me just tell you I have been on my treadmill way to many hours this week trying to de-stress! Literally the very next day after our date which was LAST Thursday he said he wanted to be my boyfriend! OMO! OMO! OMO! Dude we just met! Basically I’ve learned the following and you all better take notes so you don’t end up in your very own drama like me…

Because I told him “yeah I like you” and he likes me, to him that means we are pretty much together. It seriously plays out how you see it in a drama. Now obviously we all know just because you like someone doesn’t actually mean you want to be in a relationship with them. I explained that to him and he wrote it off as “American Style” (I have a lot to say about this whole American Style bs later on) I quickly switched subjects and started talking about my first lesson with my new student and that’s when things began to get out of hand. You know the whole ‘trying to dominate me thing’ intensified especially when he learned my new student was a Korean guy. He actually said he’ll be waiting outside for me at 7pm right after my lesson(He knows where I work because we have a mutual friend who also went to that center) and I should only conduct the lesson and not act too friendly or cute. Yah um I’ll do what I want thanks though.

At that point I was reallly reallly trying hard to act right and not flip out like I can, but he was realllly testing my patience with this Goo Joon Pyo crazy obsessed nonsense. However I was like ok fine whatever because I figured if he at least met me I could cut him off to his face and make sure he actually gets it. Well this is when I quickly reached episode 6…You know the 6th episode is when the plot actually reveals itself and things start to get messy. I went back to the whole relationship thing because I wanted him to understand that yah I like you but I’m not interested in having a relationship and it’s totally ok to be that way. I asked him when his last relationship was and he told me it was for 2 months before he came to NYC. He went on to say how it was hard for him at first because he missed her and he STILL MISSES HER.

Yeah right?! Suddenly I’m now thrown into the cliché drama love triangle and the whole time I’m thinking “All I wanted was to have fun!” So now I’m just like I don’t even have to wait to see him I can just cut this off right now!

Me: Hey well since you got all that going on lets just be friends!

Him: What!? No I want you, I don’t care about her I just miss her the same way I miss my family and friends back in Korea!

Me: Yeah well maybe you should focus on getting back with her since her pictures and your “couples photos” are still on your facebook..just sayin.

Him: I just havent taken them down, I’ll take them down if you let me be your boyfriend..please?

Me: Oh no thanks I don’t date guys who have more than 1 girl on their mind. I’m really selfish that way.

Him: I understand but I really like you and I didn’t want to lie to you. She doesn’t mean anything to me anymore..Look I don’t care if you don’t like me or want to be with me but I want to be with you and I’ll be fine just knowing you’re there..I’ll wait for you to decide.

I SWEAR he said that! Like taken right out of a drama right?! He went from Goo Joon Pyo to Yoon Jihoo status! But you all have to understand something about me. I’m pretty crazy and when something peaks my interest I really have to know whats going to happen next even if it has to do with my own life. This was just toooo good for me to walk away from. Plus I actually like him, he’s fun and very sweet so I want to keep him around and stay on good terms because him and I actually share the same friends back in Korea (crazy how I have a life in Korea and I havent even been there yet!). Also I’m going to be really honest and say I enjoy the things he says and the constant adoration.

However I decided I was going to make him wait because after all he is a guy and he said a stupid thing and needs to be punished. I don’t care how cute or nice the guy is; if he mentions any kind of feelings towards another broad cut him off and make him suffer and don’t give in! Let him break and contact you not the other way around. It was relaxing not getting any texts or calls from him because up until that point my phone was exploding. Anyway there I was laying in bed around midnight snuggled in my snuggie watching some vacation show with DBSK  getting my nightly fix of my pet Jae Joong when I received this text from him…

Him: You’ll have to wait for PART 3!

Real Asian Men Dont Come with English Subtitles

I wanted to share my “personal k-drama” experience with you all. This is just some random insight on my interaction with a total FOB (fresh off the boat) Korean guy who has been living here for 8 months studying English. I have lots of Korean friends from Korea but they have lived here for a few years so communication is easy. A lot of you might not know this but I actually volunteer helping Korean students perfect their English skills. However this was the first time I’ve gone on a date with a Korean who is FOB. Sooo here we go with my observations and experiences!

Texting simple English is best because too much is like over load.

Honestly if I didn’t know as much Korean as I do, the whole communication situation would be extremely frustrating for both of us. We flip-flop back and forth between English and Korean pretty much during every conversation.

Just like you see the Idols getting extremely shy when they are complimented so does he ^_^

Yes he likes it when I say “oppa”.

Koreans have a thing with comparing girls to animals; remember Heechul saying that one chick looked like a poodle because she had curly hair? Well I was told I have eyes like a Shih Tzu

  • The size of my eyes are a big deal to him. He loves that I have double lids and that they are “doll-like” along with being similar to a dogs -_-

As if you havent already realized Koreans like good skin. He talked about my skin ALOT and even rested his hand beside mine and said we are about the same color but that I’m only a little darker. It was so random yes, but honestly it wasnt about the color of my skin as much as it was about the condition of my skin. No matter what “shade” you are just take care of it. Keep it smooth and looking fresh! We actually did talk about face masks and what not. It was somewhat weird how he noticed things dare I say American guys don’t reallllly notice.

You know how in dramas they are dominant? Well he was no different telling me the night BEFORE the date to only look at him. He refused to acknowledge status not because he’s in America but because he likes me, so there is no way he’s calling me “noona”.However I continued to remind him kindly that he is my dongsaeng by using “ah” at the end of his name which is what you say when someone is younger than you. Older is “shi” for reference. (Hey you gotta put a guy in check some how rightt?!)

We’re all familiar with the Korean weight loss nonsense right? Well of course he sat there and explained that he wants to lose weight because he’s getting fat; meanwhile he’s tall (6 feet actually) and slim but has good thighs and arms and a totally defined Jaw line. Sooo I had to let him know he was talking crazy and that he should actually eat a burger.

You know the stalker-ish/obsessive personality traits the men in dramas seem to have? Well he was no exception. Last friday is when we exchanged numbers. Friday night is when the texting began and has not stopped. It’s actually overwhelming especially because he is really open about his feelings. On my date he told me that he wants me to see him “as a man” and then he said he liked me in Korean (MAJOR K-DRAMA MOMENT). He’s already planning skype conversations when he goes back to Korea, Bike riding along the Han River when I visit in the summer, wanting me to date only him when I actually move to Korea which is a freakin year and a half away! Me getting along with his unnie and oh the best one was he doesn’t want me going to Ktown anymore because there are too many Korean guys there. Totally k-drama leading guy out of control intense activity going on!! BTW I’m not going to sit here and say that’s how every single Korean guy is because it’s not, but it is actually common so be prepared!

So what I realized is..yes alot of the cliché’s about what they like are true. Those “k-drama moments” we all love are actually weird and awkward even overwhelming at times. Over all it was fun and I’ll keep seeing him till he goes back to Korea which is at the end of January. However I’ll keep going to Ktown and I will not be looking only at him. Also he wanted my twitter and even a link to the blog PSSHH YAHHH RIGHT WITH THAT MESS! Funny thing though, you all know how I’m Team Kim Hyun Joong/Jae Joong? Well he’s Team Rain! He freakin loves Rain….go figure!

Anyone else have a similar experience with an Asian guy?
