“That XX” (G-Dragon) Lyrics Rough Trans

crediting wins kittens, peopleCollapse )

Note: That XX is 그새끼, which means motherfucker or bastard; thus it is censored in the MV lyrics.



Love Song: Asymmetry and Wanderlust

o_srsly
So it actually is making of this current userpic that caused me to look into the image inconsistencies in the Love Song MV.

For the uninitiated, this is the latest MV by Korean group Big Bang. 



The following piece will try to dissect some images in the MV, hopefully to support a theory of mine about the story behind the MV.  Now, the lyrics of the song have a meaning of their own, available here per a lovely translation of GD's handwritten notes on the lyrics.  It's very much worth a read.  Basically, it's about the death of a lover and the singer's wish to join the woman in the netherworld.

The point I set to prove here is that the images are flipped after a certain point, and there is a reason to do so besides them running out of set (for the USD200,000 budget, I could hardly think they would not be able to build a big enough set) or just for fun, it is to convey a deeper message of the protagonist in the story.

Warning: this is not the kind of entry for people who want to say, "Hey, obsessive much? Lighten up, it's just effing K-pop!"


a dozen screencaps and some crazyCollapse )

postscript by the venerable evieCollapse )

You know, when they said that I was going to go mad for Big Bang, I didn't know they meant, like, literally.

Because Translation is apparently the PASSION IN MY LIFE
rawr
o_srsly
Took it to myself to translate some of the GQ interview of GD from Chinese to English.  Because I could not help noticing these parts (especially the third part) to be glaringly missing from the English translations currently available.

When will I know enough Korean to translate directly into English??? I am so afraid it will be NEVER.

Anyways, a little peek into GD's mind, which is always welcome in my book.  The Chinese translation is from here at Baidu, and English translations are all by me, o_srsly.

Snippet 1: to be stronger than BBCollapse )

Snippet 2 on Big BangCollapse )

Long Convo about solo controversyCollapse )

There went 1.5 hours of my time. /facepalm


Post-Big Show Tumblr Entries

Cried countless times
Touched GD’s hand
No one dull moment
Exhausted but elated
Oh, and Tabi kissed Ji
And all five members of BigBang remain perfect

miscellaneous crazy tumblringCollapse )

/tl;dr
VIPs, get your asses to Big Show once in your life time.

...will have to spazz here instead, apologies for incoherence.

Obsession will be performed
OH MY GAAAAHDDD

 

 I was actually gonna write this post yesterday about how after the whole ”She's Gone" fiasco and him getting sued and almost getting buttsecks in jail, he would not have the balls to perform Obsession live; because we all know that for all of GD's "I don't care" facade, he really dislikes being hated.  So now that I hear he has performed Obsession on KJE Chocolate.

Life is perfect.
Say no more.  I need no more.
(Okay that is untrue I need the MV to Obsession as well.)
Give me the entire perf uncut and shit.  I want this on HDTV 1080p and I will screencap it to death.

Does everyone remember Part 1?

I cannot deal with all the perfection that this GTOP debut has been giving me. ;___;

Update:

The set list for KJE Chocolate is apparently:

1. Haru Haru
2. Obsession
3. Oh Mom
4. Baby Good Night
5. High High


I can't imagine how Haru Haru would sound without the other three members, but this set list is WIN.  All I needed more was Eojjeoran Marinya up in thurr, but nvm, I will deal. ;v;  Guess who is gonna search obsessively for Chocolate fancams until I find some?  *points at self*  C'mon now, kvips!

Oh and speaking of chocolate, saw this bit of awesome on tumblr just now:

FUCK LIFE. LIVE IN YG LAND.

Uncontrollable spazzing for the last three hours have left me exhausted beyond repair.  But who wants repair when you have got what we got tonight???  Nov 18. 2010.  You have been the most epic night in K-Pop for me.  The princes who led me into K-Pop are coming back, with not one, but TWO full albums.

This is, honestly, my feeling right now (and probably for four months to come).
