Singer IU songs in my playlist

It is the representative song of the recent album. Lilac seems to fit in with her too well.

It is so famous in Korea that I wonder if there is such a long-loved singer. She debuted at a young age and is steadily popular.

What is the secret to her popularity? I think it’s her personality. She’s a person who has endless stories of good things.

And her hobby is giving a gift to people around her with a note!

It is a song with SUGA of BTS. It was very popular last year when the covid-19 was severe.

Interestingly, each album has its own color. Yellow in 2018, blue in 2019, orange in 2020, and lilac in 2021.

IU is so nice. I turn it on every morning when I’m bored.

Honestly, isn’t she so pretty? It’s so pretty that I think I can break the wall. 🙂

Do you have a favorite singer? Please leave comments.

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

Myanmar Crisis: How can we help?

Myanmar Crisis TIMELINE (death toll)

February 1: The military detains Aung San Suu Kyi, President Win Myint and other senior figures from the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) in an early morning raid.

A military coup was successful, and at the same time, all the Internet was blocked across Myanmar, and soldiers are deployed on the roads.

February 7 to 17: But the citizens soon took to the streets, and they fought really hard. Already aware of democratization, they could not stop the demonstration. It’s not just them, it’s their future. About 100,000 people gathered in Yangon on February 17.

Starting with water cannons, tear gas, rubber bullets, and even real bullets, two people were shot. One of them died a few days later.

February 19: Mya Thwate Thwate Khaing, the young woman shot in the head in Naypyidaw, dies from her wounds.

February 28: At least 18 people killed as police fire on protesters, the UN human rights office says.

March 3: At least 38 people killed in bloodiest crackdown, UN says.

March 26: The Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP), a human rights organization in Myanmar (Burma), said the cumulative death toll was 328.

March 27 Armed Forces Day: Myanmar NOW, a local media outlet, said 114 citizens died in one day on the 27th. That means the total number of deaths is over 450.

Human rights violations become more violent

It’s getting bolder and more serious. There are so many on YouTube. It shows how military and police officers treat citizens. It is so sad..

“The cruelty of Myanmar’s military and police yesterday was a different dimension than what we’ve seen,” the BBC said. “It’s painful to count the number of deaths, especially for children.”

According to local media in Myanmar, more than 20 children have died in the two months since the military coup.

Also, citizens who did not participate in the demonstration were shot dead by military and police.

“A drinking water delivery man and a passerby were shot to death in the head and stomach,” said a nurse working in Yangon.

How can we help?

Myanmar nun Sister Ann Rose Nu Tawng knelt down and begged them.

“I knelt down… begging them not to shoot and torture the children, but to shoot me and kill me instead,” she told AFP.

The one nun raised a great deal of courage around the world. The Pope also mentioned her. Many people have been rooting for Myanmar since the crisis began.

The HWPL issued a statement and appealed to the world.

“We, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), express deep concern over the situation in Myanmar, which has caused casualties and posed grave threats to human rights.”

“Human life must not be disregarded in any circumstances. No conflict of interest can justify violence against civilians, and no interest of any group can prevail over human life.”

“HWPL, along with our members all over the globe are deeply concerned about the harm caused to civilians by the escalating violence in Myanmar. International attention is focused on Myanmar, and history will remember these moments.”

The HWPL is the most notable and powerful peace organization in recent years, with hundreds of thousands of members from more than 100 countries.

It is not possible by one’s own strength. Let’s all be one and support.

Peace is up to you 🙂 Good luck!

Frozen Korea, figure skating with Hanbok

It’s such a beautiful video that I’m about to cry.

The visual beauty is so good. Not only the natural scenery but also the light shining on the winter lake is so beautiful. Hanbok (Korean traditional dress) is so pretty, too. The line is elegant.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m Korean, but the music melody is somewhat sentimental. It feels like it contains a lot of things.

It’s a natural view, so there’s a risk of falling into the water. That’s great. Also it’s touching.

Baek soobak, (not real name) a youtuber, is originally a figure skater before retiring due to injury.

However, she did not give up and went to college majoring in rehabilitation and started rehabilitation on her own.

Eventually, she is now able to do better than before her retirement, and is challenging various sports such as surfing, inline skating, jiu-jitsu, etc.

I think she is cooler now than a player. There are so many fans on YouTube, too! She is pioneering a new path. I want to join the challenge.

Is there anything you want to challenge yourself?

Lee Seung-yoon (No. 30) won the “Sing Again” JTBC (2020-21)

“Sing Again” is an audition program for “forgotten” singers.

I really liked the purpose itself from the beginning. It’s really hard to succeed in the music world. Many of them suffer from eating and living problems.

Singers Lee Sun-hee and Yoo Hee-yeul, lyricist Kim Ea-na, rocker Jeon In-kwon and Kyuhyun of Super Junior are among the judges.

I especially like Yoo Hee-yeul and Kim Ea-na. Their words are friendly and supportive. It’s very good to give balanced advice.

Lee Seung-yoon was crowned the winner of JTBC’s hit audition program “Sing Again” (2020-21) and took home prize money of 100 million won ($89,000).

My favorite song is the Lee Seung-yoon’s adaptation of Lee Hyori’s “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” (2011)

The judges were all shocked. When the judges’ reaction was fiercely divided over the two singers, singer Yoo Hee-yeol, who is a judge on the show, equated it with the birth of pioneering acts such as Seo Taiji, Guckkasten and Kiha & The Faces.

It is great to be able to confuse judges who have lived in music for about 30 years.

He opened a new genre and became a light, until now no one has been recognized. Those who did such music were all minor. He failed a lot, he felt inferior and he blamed himself every time.

Looking at the comments, so many people sympathized with his story and were enthusiastic about his character.

You really have to listen to music!! Then you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Happy New Year 2021 around the World

A new year has begun. How are you doing?

I see what celebrations have been held in each country. This time, everyone broadcasted online because of the coronavirus.

Let’s watch it on YouTube!

There are New Zealand, Scotland, Australia, Berlin, Japan, Paris, Dubai, Thailand.

It’s so beautiful. I think I’ll be able to start the year with energy. Looking back on last year, did I live without regrets? At least I feel like I’m trying.

I am in my hometown, Korea these days. The country used drone technology to hold a commemorative event and it was so good. Scotland above also used drones, so I brought the Korean video.

Most of them responded well. They said it’s cool. It is a collaboration between Hyundai and BTS. Background music is “I’m on it – BTS” I also think it’s art…

I hope you make new plans for this year and be happy.

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

[Korean Culture] JTBC “Sing Again” (2020)

JTBC’s ‘Sing Again(싱어게인)’ offers forgotten singers a second chance.

Singers who are forgotten, standing alone after leaving a group for the first time, have failed to succeed despite their superb singing skills among others are given one more chance to appeal to the public on the show.

One of the interesting parts of the program is that contestants are called by their numbers, from one to 71, instead of their names.

In addition, there were many other unknown singers. Among them, there were many singers who enjoyed music and were good at it.

The song was so famous that the singer was forgotten, and there were many people who had their own stories.

I listen to the above 4 singers a lot these days. I hope you guys experience this music too.

SM girl group: AESPA “Black Mamba”

Aespa is a South Korean girl group formed by SM Entertainment, consisting of members Karina, Giselle, Winter and Ningning.

The group debuted on November 17, 2020, with the release of their debut single, “Black Mamba”.

Why are they called æspa?

Their name comes from combining ‘æ’ derived from ‘Avatar X Experience’ & ‘aspect’.

The meaning meaning behind the name is various innovative activities to come with the theme of ‘Experiencing a new world via the encounter of the ‘avatar’, your other self’.
https://kprofiles.com/aespa-profile/

One fan said “AESPA is AESPA. They’re not any other else. Instead, this is so SM. Superior Vocals quality, and Visuals. For this particular song, there is no fast Rap or too much swags. Its full of aesthetics, high quality effects, and A vocal dominant song. Amazing choreo which follows the song style.”

another fan said “the fact that all 4 of them are more than just average vocalists is insaine, can’t wait for giselle and karina to showcase more of their vocals! they sound really good in their pre-debute. what more after getting those vocal trainings.”

It is my morning routine to find my favorite song and start the day. 🙂

Inline Skating in Busan, Korea : I am a figure skater

There is another thing that is rapidly gaining popularity in Korea. Like the last posting, “feel the rhythm of Korea”, there are a lot of comments saying that Korean Tourism Organization should have to cast her quickly.

That figure skater (백수박: Baek Soobak, not real name) is also very pretty, but the camera moving is also highly praised.

The visual beauty is so good. Sometimes I get tired of COVID-19, but it’s healing.

In fact, this video became popular first. Why do you think it is? Because she is so pretty.. Also cutie..

There is a figure skater who can’t forget in Korea. I want to hear from Kim Yuna. Where and what will she do now?

She was a dream and hope for me, who was young.

I missed her, so I brought a video.

What do you miss? I think it would be nice to spend the day looking for it.

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

Refund Sisters “DON’T TOUCH ME” MV

Refund Sisters is a seasonal South Korean K-pop supergroup formed on the MBC variety show Hangout with Yoo. The group is a spin-off formed from SSAK3 – another supergroup – when Lee Hyori said during Hangout with Yoo that she wanted to form a ‘strong image’ girl group with Uhm Jung-hwa, Jessi, and Hwasa.

Each member was highlighted in their own unique color: Lee Hyori (Chun Ok) in orange, Uhm Jung Hwa in red, Hwasa in purple, and Jessi (Eun Bi) in pink.

Someone said “we need more collabs like that in kpop. not only the group: the interactions, the performances, etc are all amazing. i love all the girls and their careers, is nice to see that is a friendship between then.”

Another said “Jessi : no matter how much I age. I will still be better than them!! YES QUEENS!!!!!”

Others said “Jessi’s rap and that Hwasas stare and the power walk after that all just hits different…. I’ve rewatched that sooo many times already. Still can’t get over it.”

The October 31 episode of MBC’s “How Do You Play?” took the audience behind the scenes on the set of Refund Sisters’ music video for “Don’t Touch Me.”

It was such a happy moment as a fan. And there’s an article on the link below, which is a really good summary. If you can’t watch the MV because you’re busy, please read it as an article!
