[노래] 두근두근

As I’ve mentioned, the opening of The Greatest Love got me right away – an old MV of  K-pop group 국보소녀. In that drama 국보소녀 was the most popular K-pop group 10 years ago. Their most popular song is 두근두근. And I find it so cute! I’m glad that 두근두근 is finally released – they even released an MV!

Yey! I have a new song to study!

아티스트 – 써니힐 (Sunny Hill)
관련앨범 – 최고의 사랑 OST Part 3

우린 처음부터 어울리지는 않았죠
다투기만 하고 속만 태우던 사이였었는데
참 이상한 건요 어느새 맘이 통해서
곁에 없으면 미칠 것처럼 그댈 보고 싶은 걸
특별한 나만의 님으로 설렘이 가득 찬 선물로
점점 다가서는 그대를 어쩜 좋아요

그대 때문에 가슴이 이 심장이 두근두근
난 그대만을 사랑해 내 마음 가득 외치는 말
두 눈을 꼭 감고서 떨리는 입술을 내민 날 보며
먼저 안아주는 그댈 꿈꾸고 있죠

그대에 기대어 슬픈 척했었던 그 날
나보다 더 큰 그대의 심장소리가 들려왔죠
숨겨도 감출 수 없는 건
꿈에도 원하고 있는 건
세상 무엇보다 소중한 오직 한 사람

그대 때문에 가슴이 이 심장이 두근두근
난 그대만을 사랑해 내 마음 가득 외치는 말
두 눈을 꼭 감고서 떨리는 입술을 내민 날 보며
먼저 안아주는 그댈 꿈꾸고 있죠

이미 알고 있어요
그대 나와 같단 걸
눈부시게 심장 속에 새겨진 사랑인걸

그대 때문에 영혼이 이 심장이 두근두근
난 그대만을 사랑해 내 마음 가득 행복한 말
두 팔 활짝 펼쳐서 떨리는 가슴을 내준 그대여
최고의 사랑을 가득 안겨줄게요.

I am so loving the MV too! There’s nothing special to it. It doesn’t even look like an MV at all – rather it looks like they just filmed these parts as inserts whenever there is a need for a flashback on the drama. But it makes me so smile! Ear-to-ear-wide smile! Funny thing too… since this MV was released, some people even thought that 국보소녀 is a new Kpop group! XD

두근두근 on loop for the entire day!

[드라마] ‘최고의 사랑’ 최고다!

I started watching 최고의 사랑 – the day after its pilot episode. I was contemplating whether to watch it or not, but I ended up downloading and watching it right after it aired its pilot. 😀

I watched it without subs (I’m not excited, am I?). My Korean is still not good enough to understand everything. In fact I often get lost in their conversations. But I’m happy with the amount of things I can now understand. I think it is more accurate to gauge my comprehension by watching an unsubbed drama than while watching a subbed one.

The opening got me right away – an old MV of  K-pop group 국보소녀. The song 두근두근 is so cute too! It made me smile from ear to ear – I don’t even know why.

Cha Seung-Won is great – as always. But I just don’t like that he is sporting his Jo Guk (City Hall) look in this drama. I think Cha Seung-Won is handsomest in that look, but somewhow  him sporting the Jo Guk look and acting as the crazy Dokko Jin somehow disturbs me a bit when watching it. I have to remind myself every now and then that he is not Jo Guk – he is Dokko Jin! Good thing he is about to change his look in Episode 5! Yey! I don’t have to endure a Dokko-Jin-that-looks-exactly-like-Jo-Guk being sweet and romantic towards Ae Jung. Jo Guk can only be sweet, manly and romantic to Shin Mi Rae (City Hall)

Gong Hyo-Jin is excellent too. This is the first time I’m watching her. Pasta has been on my to-watch list since last year, but I just haven’t gotten a chance to watch it. Although Cha Seung-Won is one of my favorite actors, Gong Hyo-Jin is the reason why I can watch this drama. Aside from the fact that I have a problem watching Kim Sun-Ah‘s previous partners on another drama with another partner, I also have a problem watching other actresses. I have a ‘high’ standard when it comes to actresses (read: high standards = Kim Sun-Ah acting standard). My usual litanies when watching a drama are  either “Kim Sun-Ah can do better than that!” or “It would have been better if it was Kim Sun-Ah on that role!”. Fortunately Gong Hyo-Jin is such a great actress and she plays her role as Ae-Jung very well. Of course, sometimes I think it would have been nice if Kim Sun-Ah’s playing Ae Jung. But I think Gong Hyo-Jin fits the role perfectly! So I don’t mind if it’s not Kim Sun-Ah. 🙂 (I just don’t know if I’ll feel the same way when romance between Ae-Jung and Dokko Jin starts budding :|).

At first I was just planning to continue watching Greatest Love without subs. I don’t want to bother waiting for the subs anymore and I just want to watch it for the sake of watching it. But after watching Episode 1 and browsing Episodes 2 and 3, I think it’s so good that I don’t want to miss out a lot from the dialogues. So from now on I’ll watch it with subs – even if that would mean more waiting.

[드라마] Greatest Love trailer

Greatest Love seems like a good drama. 1.) It’s Cha Seung Won 2.) It’s Yoon Kye Sang 3.) It’s Cha Seung Won + Yoon Kye Sang in one drama and 4.) It’s written by the Hong sisters.

To watch or not to watch? I have every reason to watch, but I have one big reason not to watch it – Kim Sun Ah, unfortunately, is not part of this drama. I’ve always wished, for many years now, that Yoon Kye Sang and Kim Sun Ah will have a drama together.

Now, her having a drama with both Yoon Kye Sang and Cha Seung Won would be heaven for me. It’s just a 39 second trailer but I feel jealous for Kim Sun Ah already. ㅠㅠ

I know it isn’t fair, but I have a tendency to not like seeing Suna Unnie’s previous partners (read: Hyun Bin and Cha Seung Won at least) acting opposite other actresses. I have endured Secret Garden. I actually wouldn’t have watched it in the first place if it wasn’t written by writer Kim Eun Sook. I don’t know if I’ll have the courage to watch Athena sometime in the future. Now, would I have the heart to watch this drama? It seems really really interesting and I don’t think I’ll let a Cha Seung Won-Yoon Kye Sang drama pass. I guess I’ll just have to endure it, especially when Cha Seung Won gets extra sweet to Gong Hyo Jin (keeping fingers crossed that there won’t be any bed scenes nor sweet kisses please!).

Why why why doesn’t Suna Unnie have a drama now?

Now, who said I’ll won’t watch a new drama until I’ve completed my unfinished dramas? 🙂
