Wow, it’s been a while since I last wrote. So I’ll write my personal recommendations in music, kdramas and books. 🙂
Well, everyone, how was summer? Mine ended on Monday, and I’m having some hard time but everything is fine 🙂 How was it? Well, to others it might be boring but I discovered many nice things to do online.
First of all, let’s get started with the books. I read “The Selection” series by Kiera Cass in one week. How I managed to finish it in such short time? Well, it’s because I sometimes spent my night reading instead of sleeping, cause the series are AMAZING! The book tells the story about an average girl who has been chosen between thousands of girls, among with 34 other girls, to have the chance to be the next queen. The story is full of fun and romance and suspense so I really recommend it.
Also, if you all know about that book that became a movie, “If I Stay”(by Gayle Forman), well forget it. The story is really boring and a perfect example to define the word “cliché”. But the surprise was when I started reading (still haven’t finished it) the sequel of the book, “Where She Went”. It’s just amazing! It talks about how the couple broke up and this time takes Adam’s side of the story. I swear I could’ve felt his emotions through those simple words. Nice done Gayle Forman! 🙂
Now, let’s talk about kdramas. I watched “The heirs” on tv but it was a bit boring so I stopped it. But that day I decided to go back to one of my favorite dramas (I partially downloaded it on my laptop) : Rooftop Prince (Starring Park Yoochun). The story is about a king in the Joseon era who traveled in time to the present with his 3 guards to solve the mystery of his beloved princess’ murder. The story is very funny with the boys trying to get adapted to the latest technology (especially when Yoochun tried to zoom out a video on a tv screen XD ), and the romance of the prince falling in love with the girl instead of the princess’ reincarnation.
And let me tell you that after finishing it, I’ll start a new drama: The girl who sees smells (also starring Park Yoochun).
Ok, now, let’s talk about music! 🙂
This summer was known for its HOT comebacks. Let’s start with my favorites, Super Junior’s “Devil”. The song is about them falling in love with a girl but discovering that she’s bad when it’s too late to go back. I was super happy to see Yesung discharged from his enlistment and back with the band, so I expect to hear his stunning high notes in the next comeback! (Which is very soon XD )
Then we have SNSD. The girls started the summer with their colorful single “Party”! And they came back with “Lion Heart”, which is a “Great Gatsby” style song about a boy cheating on one of them with the others (means he’s dating all 8 of them), and “You Think”, which is a strong upbeat song about the girls showing their wild side, that the boy “ain’t cooler” than them.
These were my two favorites but there’s also more. We shouldn’t forget the exceptional Bigbang comeback with the “Made” series, the new krock band who debuted last week, Day6, with their very addictive song “Congratulations”, or even SHINee with their creepy but funny concept in “Married to the Music” (seeing Key’s head flying in the air still freaks me out XD ). And the comeback series is still going! Between them we have:
-SNSD’s subgroup TTS
-SNSD’ Taeyeon solo debut
-SNSD’s Tiffany solo debut
-Super Junior’s Kyuhyun
-Super Junior’s Yesung
-BTS (part 2 of the mini album they released earlier this year)
-EXO’s Japanese debut
And there’s more but that’s all I can remember :p
Well, that’s all for now! Thanks for reading! 🙂 And have a nice school/college year! 😀
