EXO-M ‘Two Moons’ feat. SHINee Key – Chinese Lyrics, Pinyin Lyrics, and English Translation

Lol after I kind of failed at transcribing the MAMA lyrics, I found the chinese character lyrics on Weibo Tieba, so these should be more correct then if I did them myself….  I did tweak a feww things that I really thought were different from what Tieba had.

Translations are mine though!  So again, not 100% correct!

And of course, obligatory mention of the omission of the “roll like a buffalo” part…. it just made the song so much better hahaha..

SHINee’s Mini-Album Sherlock Achieves An All-Kill!

Ahhh, my heart.  It can’t take this happiness.

After a year and 6 month hiatus, SHINee’s new mini-album Sherlock was released today.  And it has now achieved an all-kill on all major Korean music sites, including Melon, Soribada, and Naver.  HOORAY 😀  I am sooo happy for them ahhhhh.

I’ve only been a shawol since like last December, so did this happen with Lucifer too?  Or is this their first?

Anyways, not only did their title track Sherlock (Clue+Note) rank in the all-kill, but all seven of the songs on their mini-album have taken the places 1 through 7 on some of these sites.  Now that, my chingus, is quite an achievement, I think.

I am SO EXCITED for the MV, and I am SOOO ready for their first and subsequent comeback stages!  I will be failing all my tests this week!  Yayyy!!!!

Anyways, here’s an article from KoreaBoo:

SHINee Sherlock Mini-Album: My Thoughts

So.  I’m just gonna give my thoughts on all of this lovelyyyy SHINee stuff.  Read it if you want haha.  I’ll talk about each song and then wrap up.  Might talk about their concept/MV teaser too!  Lol I just really need something to take me away from the mound of homework that I have yet to even touch….

1. Sherlock (Clue+Note)

I’m so curiousss yeahhh~~!  Hahahaha sooo catchy, I’ve been singing it over and over again since they first released the audio teaser haha.  I didn’t think that the “SHINee is back” whispers would be part of a song, but here they are!  YAY.  hahaha.  The beginning of the song is actually like so suspenseful lol it was interesting.  TAEMIN.  He has so many singing parts!!!  Although I’m not a Taemint, I’m really excited that he’s singing more!  Because I freak out every time I watch his Immortal Song 2 performances haha….  Anyways, this song, I haven’t listened to Clue or Note yet, so I guess I won’t talk about the meshingness….  But yeah, I really like the back beats and stuff because they sound SO COOL.  Like some of them add a nice contrast, and then others work really well, and like, it just sounds so AWESOME.  Also they have this sound of like glass breaking or something several times throughout the song, totally cool 🙂 Lol the rap at the end, where they start talking about SHINee (well actually they could be talking about it in the earlier parts too, but I can’t really understand anything but the English part, so yeah..) it was interesting haha; “Tonight!  SHINee’s in the house! … so give it up give it up give it up for SHINee!!!” lol.  But Key has some long notes at the end!  I approve!

I’m really excited to see the full MV ehehehe….  I like this song.  The harmonization during the chorus is soooo nice and reminds me of Love Like Oxygen, in a veryy good way 🙂

SHINee to Make Their Comeback on March 21!!!

I.  JUST.  DIED.

For real, I sat here flailing my arms and hyperventilating for a good 5 minutes straight.  And now I’m just sitting here whimpering and wanting March 21 to get here RIGHT NOWWW.  Also, just as a side note, their mini-album is coming out on the 21, and the Hunger Games movie is coming out on the 23.  What is life.  AJKDSF;ALKSFJA;LSKDFJALFJALSKDJF

The name of their mini-album is Sherlock, and it’s supposedly going to feature a variety of really good songs that will showcase each of the members’ talents.  I am so freaking excited asjdfkla;skdfjas;ldkfj ohmygod.

Lol a side note, Minho looks rather strange in his teaser picture.  I have to say, I am not really feeling the whole “French boy” thing….  His hair looks a bit like Goo Joon Pyo’s from Boys Over Flowers.  Also, lots of people were saying like omg where are his abs?  I am not gonna immediately be like omg, cuz like he’s lying down in the picture, maybe abs disappear when you lay down idk lol.  But yeah, maybe the people put on makeup to make the tone look like he didn’t have any.  Who knows?  But yeah.  I am SO EXCITED for the rest of the teasers.

Here’s the link from allkpop because my coherency stops here.  So much for getting homework done tonight…. lol I won’t be able to rest until they come out with Onew’s picture lalalala…

http://www.allkpop.com/2012/03/shinee-releases-their-first-teaser-featuring-minho

Lol jk I’m still coherent enough to squeeze out some remarks about EXO!

What does this mean for EXO’s debut?  They’re having those press conferences on March 31 and April 1, and I doubt SM would want their own artists competing with each other on music shows, so assuming the Sherlock promotions last like at least 2-3 weeks (idk I don’t really follow all the music stages and like the life span of promotions for a song), then that would put EXO like…. mid-April?  Whatttt?  Lol I think SM got a bit ahead of themselves with EXO, I think instead of releasing the first teaser in like December they should have done it in mid-January or early February or something.  But that’s okay.  Their second prologue single should tide us over for a least a little while…..

LIFE IS SO BEAUTIFUL RIGHT NOW.

EXO Teaser 12 – Two Moons feat. SHINee Key

***the full version of this song has been released on the MAMA mini album.  Here are the lyrics for the full song.  (no “roll like a buffalo” tho so sad)

Out of all the teasers, I think this one has been my favorite.  The vocal part has been substantially longer than most of the other teasers (other than like, My Lady, but yeah).  And the rapping is so cool sounding, I mean really, rolling like a buffalo?  Awesome.  Oh and SHINee‘s Key is rapping in it and he sounds super hot and good lord I’ve never heard him rap like this before.  Like actually, his voice sounds so deep and awesome in this song, I am SO EXCITED for them to release the full song after EXO debuts.

I really hope they do lots of SHINee and EXO crossovers since Taemin is so chummy with Kai and Lu Han and Se Hun too, from what I saw from the W Live photoshoot… SM Entertainment, don’t let me down!  Lol.

So anywhoo, this Youtube video has nicely put both the Korean and Chinese versions into one video, so I don’t have to paste two links!

I guess I’ll translate the Chinese lyrics too since the video description has the romanization and characters/pinyin.  Beware, though; all my translations are probably not 100% accurate, but this one more so than others because I’m not exactly sure what they’re talking (lol more like rapping) about.  Like with the Bu Bu Jing Xin songs, basically love, pain, sadness, tragedy, GOTCHA.  But this one… it could go a few ways.  Also, Chinese has SO MANY DANG HOMOPHONES.  It’s actually ridiculous.  Also, Chinese is really reliant on having words with same pronunciation but different tones, and in songs the tones kind of go away, so…. extra challenge!  I know Korean has words that sound really similar, but I don’t think it’s to the extent of Chinese, so don’t hold me to this if any of the characters that I used to translate, or the translation itself, is wrong.  Because I’m pretty sure the video description has some of the wrong characters, so I translated according to what I think I heard.  When EXO debuts and releases this song, hopefully they’ll release lyrics too?  Or like a KTV/noraebang thing?  Haha.

Also, since I’m not Korean, I will wait for someone else to translate the Korean version and then edit this post 🙂  Or, you know, if someone who’s reading this is semi-fluent in Korean, you can help me out too haha.

An Update on My Life… and K-Pop!

Wow I have not posted anything for a very very long time.  But I’m glad I still get so much traffic thanks to my Bu Bu Jing Xin OST song posts!  Haha anyways, it’s been a rough school year and at this point I am just ready to give up so I am writing this to relieve stress 🙂

Initially, this blog was basically just about dramas (I have pages for books and movies…. but those have been sadly neglected haha).  Then like last monthish, I revisited K-pop, and found SHINee.  Cue end of trying to be a good student.  Although in the past, when I first tried K-pop (which was circa…. 2009?  Yeah, I think that sounds right), I kind of just glanced by them, I realized my grave mistake when I found them again.  Also, 2009 was only less than a year after they debuted, so the awesomeness of Ring Ding Dong, Lucifer, Hello, and etc. had not come out yet…. so perhaps that’s a bit why.  BUT.  I think what really got me to love them was watching all those Korean variety shows (seriously, America could learn a thing or two about getting some more interesting variety shows).  Watching Hello Baby was nice because I got to see all of those adorable members (hehe I’m still a dongsaeng, even to Taemin, not one of those crazy noonas :P), and I fell in loveee with them (no matter how scripted the show may be…)  Especially the adorkable ONEW ❤  Oh goodness he’s such a cutie and his non-physical sangtae is AAAHHH love it 🙂  Anywhoo, yes, after that I have searched for any and all shows they have been on and watched them.  And I hope I will be able to continue doing so!  Aka, they should not break up any time in the near future.

So, I am quite excited about their 2012 comeback!!!!  Especially after their Gayo Daejun Lucifer performance (MBC silly, why did you cut off the ending??!), that amazing whispering of “SHINee is back, SHINee is back, SHINee is back”….  I swear, after watching that I sat and hyperventilated while flailing my arms for about 5-10 minutes straight.  Rumors say that they will be making either a February or March comeback..?

However, SM Entertainment will be debuting a new, “revolutionary” boy group called EXO!  Basically, this group will be split into two parts–EXO-K and EXO-M.  EXO-K will promote in Korea, while EXO-M will promote in China (so a bit similar to Super Junior M).  According to SM, they will debut at the same time, with the same song, in Korea and China respectively.  On December 22, 2011, SM began releasing teasers to reveal each of the members.  The first to be revealed was Kai.  To date, Lu Han, Tao, Chen, Se Hun, Lay, Xiu Min, D.O., and Baek Hyun have been revealed through the teasers.  The other 3 members, who were seen but not formally introduced in previous teasers, are Chan Yeol, Kris (or Cris/Chris, I’m not sure), and Joon Myun.

They recently released a prologue song (not to be mistaken with a debut song, apparently) called What Is Love, for which I will be putting up lyrics for both the Chinese and Korean versions and translating the Chinese version.  I will probably also try to find the translations for the Korean version as well.

Anywaysss, I am super excited for this group.  I am really glad that I will actually be able to correctly sing “K-pop” songs!  Although I guess they would be considered C-pop in China, but pshhhh.  I am a tad worried, though, because after all, SM Entertainment is a Korean entertainment company.  Therefore, the power that SM’s name has to push groups to popularity will probably only apply to EXO-K.  Signs of disparity are already showing; for example, on Youtube, the viewer count for EXO-K’s version of What Is Love has already surpassed one million.  EXO-M’s version, on the other hand, has only reached half that.  I would HATE for EXO-M to have to disband or something and have EXO-K still continue due to not enough popularity for EXO-M.  But, as my friend pointed out to me to calm me down, China has its own websites for video watching, such as Youku (China’s version of Youtube I guess?).  So I just really hope that China’s following of EXO-M will be huge and very significant.

Other groups that I have become interested in are MBLAQ and 2PM, to a lesser extent.  I have always kept an eye out for Super Junior, since Sorry, Sorry was the first K-pop song I listened to in 2009, but I never really liked them up to my love for SHINee right now.

So anywaysss, this was my update on how my life has shifted toward K-pop!  🙂

Also, in regards to the “I ❤ KPOP” picture that I had posted a while ago, at that time I only recognized four or five of the groups on there…. the reason I had posted it was just because I really liked how it was a composite of all the groups.  But now I have heard of almost every group on there!  haha~

ANYWHOO, here are my tumblrs (don’t judge, i have more than one okay it’s a long story >///<):

Dream High 2 <3

So I love Dream High like crazy.  It is my favorite k-drama, and it is awesome, and aahhhhh.  Imagine my delight when I found out there would be a season 2???  SO EXCITED.  My sources say that it will not be following the same characters as season 1, but will introduce new people.  (Boohoo, I wanna see more of that gorgeous Taecyeon and adorable and sweet Kim Soo Hyun, especially if they follow him as K; and I wouldn’t mind seeing Hye Mi either, with her “I, I have a dream…” thing :D).

Season one of Dream High was produced by JYP Entertainment and Key East Entertainment, and so it the cast starred many of their respective companies’ talents.  For season 2, the pool for cast members has been increased and glorified, because SM Entertainment (Super JuniorSHINee, and SNSD anyone?) has joined forces to produce this second season.  PLEASE I BEG OF YOU CAST A SUJU CUTIE.  Ahem, what, did I just say that, psh no.  >.>

Just as the first season premiered on January 3, 2011, the second season will begin its broadcast January 3, 2012.
