Gummy/ FT Island

Gummy released a new music video today. I was really excited with her new album because "I'm sorry" was so good that you'll want to hear more Gummy songs. And this song makes it extra special casting two of artist that I like.. Jung Ryeo Won and Kim Hyun Joong.. He's very handsome! mostly when men grows up their face changes and they don't look good like they used to be.. Hyun Joong is not like that, he gets more appealing to me. And for Ryeo Won, I'm glad that she gained weight.. she looks prettier ^_^ Can't wait to see Gummy's live performance for this song, it's always better to hear the live version :D

I'm really liking every FT Island songs now, I think Hongki's voice is perfect for Jpop songs.. or should I say Jmusic since they're not really pop. And I love Jaejin's calm voice, it just right for FT Island.. The song definitely has a hook.. very Engrishey but it's forgiven because you don't expect someone to be good at it when it's not their first language.. And love the concept of the music video.. Now I miss seeing them on music shows...

I was contemplating if I should post my new interest because I still don't know if it will stick to me like K-pop did. I tried to listen to J-pop songs because my best friend recommends it, and yea every time I listen to Jpop it always reminds me of Anime, because I known them for that.. not really a bad thing, I think they have their own music.. you know when you hear it for the first time you'll have an impression "it's very Japanese like".

With News, I still don't know.. I'm definitely turning into a Ryo-chan fan and that means I'm gonna have to try News whether I like it or not. They're not really new so I hope I'm not making those crazy fans shoo me. I only like two of their songs, well only two songs stick to my mind while watching the News Winter Diamond Tour. Maybe I was so fixated to see Nishikido's solo performance that I didn't bother looking the other performances. I like all Nishikido Ryo's solo songs, I learned to appreciate his husky voice.. it's rare ^_^ And Yamapi.. Ohmy! I've been always aware of that name but never really checked him out because I was so into Ikuta Toma that time (and still is). The only members I'm confident with names are those two and Koyama. And the rest I have to google them..Tegoshi, Kato, Masuda... and Uchi that got kicked out from the group because of drinking while underage, haha! don't really know the whole shenanigans but I tried to do my research.. well it doesn't really matter I don't think I will like them that much... I still feel I'm gonna stick as Nishikido fan..

He is reachable

This video was made for a book called Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris. Haven't read it but the video makes it so interesting. Jesus is not someone who you can't reach, He came down from heaven to touch the unclean, and to set an example for us. And He reveals himself to everyone who is willing.. even with little kids, He's make himself reachable for us to have relationship. Isn't that amazing?

Lee Hyori 4th Album

Her album came out few weeks ago, I'm just lazy to talk about it because I wasn't really that hype. But I have my favorite from the whole album and it's "How Did We Get".. she sang it with Daesung and it came out really nice! Makes me want to fall in love again, hahaha! The rest of the songs are all good (but not my type), Hyori's album has a touch of dark concept but you can barely see it.. Her album shows her versatility when it comes to singing and Her photos for her album.. I don't know if it's unique because everyone seems like they're heading on that road too.. I guess it's how they bring it, and she can totally bring it.

How Did We Get

Jang Geun Suk for J&J

I know Geun Suk has been all over the place but after releasing the director's cut dvd of You're Beautiful I stopped following him.. it's not like I don't want him anymore.. I just don't expect him to do things that all the idol singers does, I have expectations of him having a less-appearance-so-people-won't-get-tired-of-me strategy.. but I guess he's embracing all the love of the fans. There's nothing wrong with that.. but I don't want my favorite actor to be that famous.. haha selfish much! Anyway, love to see him in a casual look and with a less make up and a clean hairstyle.. just the way I like it ^^.. Excited for his new movie Kimi Wa Petto korean version, I'm excited to see him portray Momo, a very bubbly and lovable character very different from his old project

Vanilla Lucy

I found a new good source of Kpop.. well I know her for a long time but I didn't know that she blogs..  she blogs more on Kpop artist that doesn't gain that much lime light like the ones you see in allkpop and all big kpop sites.
Vanilla Lucy looks like an interesting group because they're a band.. but not just your regular band.. they play instruments that you'll mostly see in operas or some elite event, They hold saxophone, cello and violin.. and their song is upbeat and not like those dramatic songs.

For more info about them go HERE

My Pick for Spring: Cinderella's Sister!

I choose to pick Cinderella's Sister from the three when I watched the first two episodes.. I thought I will be drawn to Personal Taste more because of the story line. But Cinderella's Sister is not that uber extent as I expected.. which is good because I don't like too much drama like Will it Snow for Christmas... It's my first time watching a drama that have a stubborn leading actress so I'm excited. What makes the story interesting was the root of Eun Jo's (Moon Geun Young) anger and why she's always pessimistic, why Cinderella's stepsister have so much jealousy and anger towards Cinderella.. well they revise the story of Cinderella.. we all know the whole story of Cinderella.. the stepmother is treating her like a rug and just caring for her real daughters..  In here we see that she's not very evil stepmother like.. She's not as hard as Eun Jo, the love that she shows towards the daughter of his new husband is not pure but not fake also.. She's just right there, all she wanted is to have a stable family..but because of that she caused her real daughter in great pain that she will carry for a long time. You can say that it's her fault why Eun Jo have so much hatred in her but Eun Jo is not in the right position to shout at her mom and be like that.. her mom never left her, she didn't have abortion when she found out that she's in her womb.. she is still alive maybe not in the greatest condition but she should make the most out of what she has... but then again she's limited to do things, and that's how life is.

I'm also thrilled to see how things will go on for Eun Jo and her stepsister, the Cinderella of the story Hyo Sun. Hyo Sun is a sweet girl, she's ignorant with hate and anger because she's surrounded with love and she doesn't worry if she will be able to eat everyday. Knowing that she'll have a new mother and a sister after ten years make her happy, she's all for it.. she longs for a real family, a real mother to put her head on her lap... (she may have read a lot of fairy tale books or watch too much drama like me ^^) But Eun Jo never showed interest from her, she even treats her wrong even if Hyo Sun cares for her and all.. which eventually turn into anger.. you can't blame her, Eun Jo will turn her into that.

Yea I'm sharing too much information.. I need to vent out.. good thing I have my own space.. So yea, I'm excited how EunJo will end up with a man, and how all these mess will calm down.. I'm curious how they will end this story.. usually I have my predictions already, but for now I couldn't think of any.. maybe when I'm in episode 10 I can predict how things will end.

God looks at the heart of a person He wants to use

I went to a Retirement Home today to have a Bible Study with Ate Arlene.. she asked me to lead the worship.. I said yes because I'm free that time and I feel like I should stop saying no to opportunities that will expand God's kingdom. I wasn't expecting to have a big group since we are just starting out but I asked God the same prayer that I say when I teach in Kids Church that whoever He'll bring to the place I will share His word the way He wants me to.. well I wasn't sharing the word but it's almost the same thing as worshiping because you lead them to enter the gates heaven with praising God. It was my first time doing it in a place where I'm not around Christians but God gave me the boldness even if I wasn't asking for it.. and I'm so thankful Lord!

So when we arrived at the retirement home there's two people waiting for us.. And I'm all smiles and felt because they are "waiting" for the Bible Study to start.. well it's consider as one because Eleanor is part of the evangelism group.. She lives there and she's the one that encouraged us to pushed through this Bible study. As soon as we start the worship people started coming in.. And we have about 3 more people that came, one left early... But it was just an amazing experience.. I wasn't expecting someone to show up that time when I saw one person I was so glad.. Yes I admit it.. and I'm sorry for doubting how much God can do.. Lord you're so amazing! And These people accepted Jesus in their hearts! One lady asked first after accepting Christ "But I'm catholic..?" Then Ate Arlene explained that it's not about the religion, it's about having a relationship with Jesus.. and then she nodded and smiled.. that touches my heart.. ^_^ I don't know why but these people blessed me! Especially Eleanor, she takes the bus to go to church thrice a week and she lives far and she uses a walker too.. You can see that she's hungry for the Lord and seeking and ready to be used in the place where she lives..

And this is a lesson that I should take in.. God uses people not by their strength but by their heart.. And I admire Eleanor for her heart.

1 Samuel 16:7 (New King James Version)
But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees;[a] for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

She's really a blessing and I know that God will use her more to expand His kingdom!..

And another praise report! We thought that one of the staff will stop as from worshiping because of loud guitar because she keeps one peeking, but after our study she told us that she forgot about it, next time she will announce it during breakfast and lunch time to everyone. Amen! Lord it's you! I'm so thankful for opening a door for us to share Your gospel to the people who lives there..

Happy Easter!

It's a day where we celebrate what happened 2000 years ago when Jesus had risen from the dead! He's now sitting at the right hand of the Father. It also gives us example that we will be resurrected like Him. What an awesome promise!

Jesus told Thomas when He appeared to him with His resurrected body "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed" (John 20:29 NIV)

**In the first generation seeing is believing but for us living in the present times in order to see we have to believe. ^_^

1 Corinthians 15:1-11 (The Resurrection of Christ)
1Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. 3For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. 6After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. 7Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, 8and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born. 9For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me. 11Whether, then, it was I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed.

Good Friday

Without the shedding of the blood we cannot be saved, if Jesus dying on the cross didn't happen 2000 years ago  we should be at lost by now. Thank You for Your precious blood, thank You for paying the whole world's sin.
Remember what happened on the cross.. Look at how much the Father's love for us that He sent His only Son to die and save us. Thank You Lord.. Thank You Jesus.
