I just watched CN BLUE’s comeback stage in M! Countdown and Music Bank. At first, I was just listening and heck yeah my fangirl heart was really happy. Listening to boys was just so refreshing. But when I decided to watch their performance, instead of being happy, I was disturbed. I don’t know if it’s just me or what but the boys’ eyes looked really tired especially Yong Hwa’s and it breaks my heart. I heard they will just be promoting for a month and they’ll finally able to rest for a few months too. I know I wanted to see them performing but the Boice inside me is happy. Happy that finally, our boys can rest. They need to.
So, few hours ago, I posted a photo of Zac Efron and Joyce Ramirez (@PublicityAsia) in facebook with a caption of “Hello handsome! Welcome to the family.” And then I tweeted “I think they should change it to #PENSHOPPEfamily . Haha. Because were more than just a team, we’re a family.”
I don’t why I kept on mentioning family earlier. Hahaha. But seriously, I really feel like Penshoppe and Publicity Asia is a family.
I mean, the fans of different endorsers are coordinating really well; some of us have met new friends. If you’d also look at the bond between the top influencers~ and the avid supporters~ some have developed real friendship. Friendship that is not limited only in twitter but in real life too. And lastly, the Penshoppe people doesn’t just treat the fans as JUST fans, they treat them like they are a part of them too. Even the sales personnel and manager of one Penshoppe branch here in CDO treats me really well as if they know (obviously, they don’t) but their customer service is superb!~
Hahaha.Oh my. Why am I writing this.lol
I refuse to call CN Blue as idols. I don’t know why. For me they are more than that. They are musicians.
I’m done with my over-all Dream High 2 rant but I wanted to write a couple-shipping rant.lol. I actually don’t think if this is a rant though.
<sarcasm>I salute the Dream High 2 writers for making a messier than ever love web. </sarcasm>
I mean. Most of the viewers that watched all throughout the drama was the couple shippers. We have the main couples Ramen Couple, Rubics Couple, Shoe Couple, G-minor Couple, and then we have… the triangles… Ailee-Ui Bong-Lee Seul, Siwoo-Nana-Hong Joo, and Teacher Ahn-Teacher Yang-Teacher Kahi (I still don’t know her name in the drama.lol).
Sounds okay but the DH2 writers made it really complicated. First, they’ll make us fall for Ramen and Shoe Couple, then the next episode, another set of couples. Ugh.
So here’s my theory. THE DREAM HIGH WRITERS MIGHT HAVE A ‘WHEEL OF COUPLES’ IN THEIR OFFICE AND SPIN IT BEFORE THEY’LL WRITE THE SCRIPT FOR NEXT EPISODE OR WHAT. Like this:
LAAAAAAME THEORY, I KNOW.
So let’s move on to the couple I’m shipping.
I was a hardcore/diehard SHOE COUPLE shipper at first. Rian and JB were just perfect for each other. Everytime DH2 will flashback to Rian and JB’s training days, they were just so cute and full of love. It was evident in the first few episodes that they still love and care of each other. I couldn’t get why Rian was cold to him but I was so sure that something happened to them that made her act that way.
But when JB started to like HaeSung, Rian was really jealous. I started to think that maybe Rian was JUST jealous. But when they aired the part where they broke up, it was just too much to handle for me. He was there for JB in his downtimes, and she was willing to stay with him, but JB just broke up with her. They broke up but they never said that they didn’t love each other anymore. I finally understood Rian when she pushes JB away before. Maybe she just wanted to show JB that he just can’t leave her like that and suddenly gets back to her when he pleases too. And Rian’s jealousy towards HaeSung. Yah! JB broke up with her before to debut but now he’s all willing to go though all those hardships for HaeSung? Come on! Who wouldn’t be hurt with that. And It’s not that Rian stopped loving JB, hey! She still keeps all those memorabilia’s from the past… and the shoes!
I told myself to go down with SHOE COUPLE ship but towards the end of the drama, I fell in love with the G-MINOR Couple: Yoo Jin and Rian. During the first half of the drama, there were already signs that the two of them might become a couple but I didn’t entertain the idea much because I thought Yoo Jin was for Hae Sung.
Rian and Yoo Jin were themselves when they are together. They didn’t have to act strong and cool with each other. Yoo Jin was there when Rian needed his help (eventhough it wasn’t exactly on his plans). They just bring out the REAL and the BEST with each other. They keep on teasing each other but their teasing is more of an encouragement. They were friends… real friends. And real friends is something that both of them needed. They discovered their different sides that not even their ‘friends’ know.
And eventhough I’m ‘allergic’ to those cutie-patootie-love-dovey moments, their funny/cute and sweet moments together were so addicting. I love how playful and real were together. (I’m almost shipping Jinwoon and Jiyeon now.HAHAHAHAHA)
I still liked SHOE COUPLE even up until the final episode but my heart was really hoping for the G-MINOR COUPLE. I realized that the Shoe couple scenes brought me a lot of tears but the G-Minor couple brought me happiness. I’d choose happiness of course. And eventhough none of them really ended up together, I’m happy that the Shoe Couple finally had closure, asked forgiveness and thanked each other and finally regained their friendship. And for my G-Minor couple, I couldn’t be any happier. They have been each other’s inspiration. The drama might not have clearly stated that they are together, but for me, they are. Those stares and gazes, those actions when they sang Dream High on the last episode… it was all just LOVE. ( The writers didn’t make a clear ending so I’m free to imagine my own ending, right? )
If you’d notice, I don’t ship Rubics nor Ramen couple. Just like what I’ve said, I didn’t like HaeSung’s character. I just couldn’t sympathize with her. With the Rubics couple, I’ve always just thought that JB just saw himself in HaeSung. They were both working hard for their dreams and maybe that’s why JB helped her. For the Ramen couple, all I can see is an unrequited love. All I saw was just Yoo Jin caring for HaeSung. But I also ship Lee Seul-Ui Bong, Teacher Yang-Teacher Kahi, and Siwoo-Nana, though I also like Siwoo-Hongjoo bromance.lol
But nonetheless, I enjoyed the drama. It was like a rollercoaster ride for me. And yes. I’ll be watching it again (but I won’t recommend it to my friends.lol!)
I’m still a Goguma newbie. Yes. A month old Goguma fan. But as what the other gogumas have said, “It’s not about how long you’ve known YongSeo, but on how strong you support them.”
WHY DO YOU LIKE YONGSEO? A friend of mine asked me this. I didn’t respond. She asked me again… and added… “Why do you like them? They’re not real. They’re scripted. *inserttheothercouplenamehere* is way better and real.” I couldn’t take it anymore. I just told her, “Think whatever you like, but my love for YongSeo won’t fade away. Ever. Yes. WGM might be JUST a show, I didn’t ship YongSeo just because they are a couple in WGM, I shipped them because I saw how they grew together not just as a couple but also individually. I just have this REALLY STRONG FEELING that makes me want to ship and support them. I can’t even describe what this feeling is.”
I admit, I was a shipper of the *inserttheothercouplenamehere* before and it was hard for me to appreciate YongSeo. Believe it or not, I didn’t know who Seohyun was. (Don’t get me wrong; I’m just not into kpop. I know SNSD but I didn’t know who the members are.) Yes. I was that ignorant. I was really close-minded that time.
While I was browsing through Yong’s live performances on youtube (Allow me to share to you how I got to know YongSeo and how it changed my life. Naks!) And I came across their BANMAL SONG PERFORMANCE AT KPOP ALL STAR LIVE IN NIIGATA. And bam! I couldn’t lie to myself; there was something different with Yong’s expressions and stares. Yes. I wasn’t a YongSeo fan that time but I felt SOMETHING. What that something is? I don’t know. Maybe it’s more of a spark or something we Filipinos call ‘kilig’. It was the first time that I cried just by watching a live performance on youtube. That alone was something. (Ok. I think I’m just going in circles.lol)
I watched some fan made MVs of YongSeo but I still couldn’t get it. So I decided to watch We Got Married. It was such a hassle for since I had a crappy internet connection and it was kinda hard for me to look for the links. I almost gave up and told myself that I might finish the series in a month but heyyyyyyyyyy I finished it within a week.
I was in pain watching the first episode because of the awkwardness between the two but somehow, the ‘kid’ within Yong kept me entertained. The main reason why I watched is because I’m a Yong biased and I wanted to see the other side of him. Not Yong the musician, not Yong the rocker, not Yong the actor… just Yong. But after each episode, I was craving for more… craving for more Yong…Seo.
Some said that they were boring and that their relationship was progressing really slowly especially that Seobaby can’t speak informally to her husband and their lack of skinship. I agree, but the ‘banmal’ speaking was something that brought them closer.
They ‘slowly’ became closer. But what I love about them is that even though they lack skinship, they can communicate through their eyes and most especially through music. Music is something that both them enjoy. I love how different both them are but they can still get along well. They just manage to bring out the best of each other. I love how they surprise each other with gifts. And with gifts, I mean the THOUGHTFUL gifts. Yong’s photo notebooks, book reports, and ahem… the goguma land!lol. , the song… Seohyun’s dedication in her performances for Yong. Both of them don’t normally do all those things but they did it.
Why am I writing this? I don’t know.
In the end, I still believe in them. But I’m the kind of fan that doesn’t insist that they are dating in real life now. I don’t why. But I wish they are dating but I don’t really assume.
A part of me spazzes when I hear news about them, even if it’s just them performing in the same event, or one of them was mentioned in the interviews, but a part of me is also prepared that they might not be really dating in real life.
A part of me spazzes when they wear/do something from/for the Gogumas or related to the Gogumas, but a part of me inside thinks that those were just coincidences.
A part of me wished that Yong’s Still in Love was for Seohyun, but the Boice inside me thinks that Yong is just an amazing songwriter and he could’ve had his inspiration somewhere.
I’m not a selfish fan, I will still support YongSeo even if they will have their respective projects and partners in the future. It’s their work and I can’t do anything about it but to just support and be happy for them.
I will always support the two of them. As an oncam-couple, and individually. They might tell the media that they are not in a relationship, they might not have projects together, they might not end up together in real life, knowing that they are still friends and they are in good terms. The mere thought of ‘friendship’ between is enough for me. Friends still love each other right? But what’s good about it is that ‘FRIENDS’ never break up. Yup. As long as they are friends, I will always be a Goguma.
When did I ever post about Dream High 2 that wasn’t a rant?
Hahaha. So after 16 episodes, here I am… EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE. WTH. I know we all had this LOVE and HATE relationship with Dream High 2. We hated the storyline and some of the characters but we still watched the drama until the end. We invested so much time and electricity and internet connection for this. (Which shows our love?hahahaha)
So yeah. After watching the last episode, I don’t know if I’m happy or sad. Don’t click the read more if you’re too tired and close-minded about rants.HAHAHA
The main reason that I’m happy is because they gave justice to Rian’s character. I was rooting for her character ever since episode 6(?). Yeah. And not that I hate the others but I noticed that only her character was kinda written well. Many people hated her because she has a tough exterior that only her real friends can see through her (Hello JB, YooJin and HaeSung!) Rian went through a lot of trials that she kept to herself. And that’s why I’m happy. She matured at the end… and she was successful.
Now, for the REASONS why I’m sad.
WTH happened to them in the future??????? ok. No need to post them here since most of the reasons are just like everybody else’s. HAHAHAHA.
Hong Joo and Si Woo are still fighting over Nana. I kinda get this part though. I think this meant to give a not so serious-funny vibe.
Lee Seul and Ui Bong together. Yes! Atleast one of the couples ended up together. (Eventhough I also like Ui Bong and Ailee)
Ailee. As much as I like Ailee, I didn’t get her character. She’s just there, performing.
Soon Dong. The poor Soon Dong. They didn’t even gave her a chance to have a decent performance.
Yoo Jin. WTH. I thought he was going to be a rocker. But he ended up being a teacher?? I mean. There were no signs during the previous episodes that he’d make a great teacher.
JB. What happened to his freaking hair. (He should go back to being blonde when he debuts.) Oh well. Music producer is good but he should do something related to dancing because that’s what he’s really good at. Yoo Jin should be the producer.
Hae Sung. Actually, from the start, I didn’t like her. (Not that I hate Sora or something) but I guess her character wasn’t written well. I felt like she’s just one of those annoying girls. And I even thought she wasn’t the main character. (Boohoo! Blame the writers.)
Rian. Oh well. You already know what’s on my mind. HAHAHAHA~
Teacher Yang. Hello. What happened to JYP here. I was already bothered since episode 1 why he ended up being a lowly teacher at Kirin. I mean. He’s also responsible for the success of those characters in Dream High 1 right? He should’ve landed on a decent job in the industry.
Teacher Ahn. Well. I though she was going to be THAT teacher. But aside from what she did for HaeSung, I can’t really think that she did something to transform/inspire the B class.
Teacher Kahi (lol. IDK what’s her name in DH2). Out of all teachers, I think she has influenced her students more. I mean, I haven’t seen it but I felt it with HerShe and Eden. And she really knows them well.
Shin PD. Laaaaame~
Principal. I like him but I also didn’t get his character that much. I’m still intrigued why he’s so good to Yoo Jin. (Maybe because they are both rockers?HAHA)
Director. I almost puked when Lee Seul gave him the balloon. HAHAHAHAHAHA. It was cute and awkward for me. But hey. I wish I saw his good side more.
FRIENDSHIP. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The only real friendship that I felt was between Rian-YooJin-JB-HaeSung. The rest are just blaaaah. Oh. And the friendship between HerShe and Eden too. But with the B Class? I haven’t felt it.
DREAM HIGH 2. Why is it even called Dream High 2? I kinda don’t get the Dreaming High part of the drama. Most of them just conformed to what’s available and what’s demanded. For some characters maybe…
COMPARISON ON DREAM HIGH 1 AND DREAM HIGH 2. I know it’s wrong to compare them but hey! They should have some similarities too you know. Aside from the Kirin School, Teacher Yang, and the K necklace and some cameos, there was nothing. They didn’t even gave the K necklace the justice it deserved. Why did it end up with Hae Sung’s sister? WHYYYYYYY?
“IT’S NOT ABOUT THE LOVE RELATIONSHIPS”. I’ve read this before, some said that we shouldn’t expect much on who’s-gonna-end-up-with-who thing since this drama is about their individual dreams. But here’s my answer: the reason why most of the people are disappointed on the love relationships is because with the so-not-clear and dragging storyline, only the couple-shipping was the only reason left for us to watch the whole series. yeah.
OST. The drama disappointed me, but not their OSTs. I actually loved of all them. My favorites are Hello To Myself and Together~~~ hehe.
BUT OVERALL, I enjoyed watching the drama. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me really angry… but hey! The drama entertained me (which is the main reason why I watched it in the first place)
Forgive my grammatical errors.
The plot/storyline/coupleshipping is getting into my nerves but I just can’t let go of this drama. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
YES. I’m hooked with Dream High 2 but it’s all because of the couple shipping and because it’s Dream High. And now, I just…errrr.
Please don’t click read more if you’re so biased and closed minded. loljk. Please don’t click read more if you’re too tired to read rants. HAHA
After watching JB and Rian’s break up scene, I was speechless. No wonder why I can’t get myself to hate on Rian. It’s because she was hurt… badly. They didn’t have that ‘closure’ thing.
About that Rian being so cold towards JB during the first episodes, I think Rian just wanted to tell JB that he can’t just leave her anytime he wants and gets back to her as if nothing happened. But one thing’s for sure, Rian still loves JB. AND SHE GETS JEALOUS TOO. You know that feeling when no matter how hard you tried to be there for the person you love in times of trouble but they just drive you away? And now that he’s got to where he wanted to be, he’s willing to give it up for another woman? Sucks right?
If Rian is really a bad person, she could’ve done all sorts of evil schemes before. She won’t be concerned for Nana (because Nana, voice-wisely is really really good and could serve as her competitor). She won’t even bother to be friends with Yoo Jin… She won’t warn HaeSung before the proposal… etc.
Let us try to put ourselves in Rian’s shoes. JB broke up with her and the people only thinks that she’s just a girl with a pretty girl no matter how hard you try. Like seriously… just think of it.
Rian has been through a lot too.
/sorry for the grammatical errors/
I’M SKIPPING THE JB-HAESUNG SCENES. HAHAHA! DON’T GET ME WRONG. I’M NOT THAT BITTER JB-RIAN SHIPPER, ITS JUST THAT, I EASILY GET SICK OF LOVEY-DOVEY-SWEET MOMENTS.
AND WHY AM I IN ALL CAPS?LOL
I STILL HAVEN’T FELT THAT ‘REAL’ BOND/FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN THEM.
oh well. Maybe it’s just me.
Just noticed something… they’re not giving the K necklace that much importance anymore. I mean. uhh..
I may/may not get hurt in the end…but still… I’M GOING DOWN WITH THIS SHIP.
Dream High will always be on my ‘favorites’ list. Suzy, Soo Hyun, Eun Jung, Taecyeon, IU, Wooyoung… they’ll never be forgotten. (CHAAAAR!) Haha. But seriously, I really loved the drama, not to mention the awesome JYP is there too. Thanks to these idol dramas, I’m now falling into the ‘kpop’ world too.
Upon knowing that there will be a sequel, I didn’t get my hopes too much. I wasn’t really expecting for the original cast to be retained or something. When the cast was announced, WALA KOY NAILHAN!MAYGASSSS! But I still watched the drama. And now… the hardcore shipping begins.
I just finished watching episodes 09 and 10 and I just can’t wait to watch the rest. Just like I said, I don’t really expect much of idol dramas and I am easily attached to the dramas I watch. And by attachment, I mean hardcore shipping of love teams.
10 episodes have passed but I tell you, I’M STILL A FREAKING JI YEON AND JB BIASED! lol. Not that I hate Sora-JB but my feelings for Ji Yeon-JB is just too effin strong.
You know that feeling when you ship a couple so hard that every time you see them, you’re just like ‘PLEASE BE TOGETHER!PLS! I’M WILLING TO WAIT FOR THE LAST 6EPISODES JUST PLEASE BE TOGETHER!’
I really feel like they still both love each other. But what intrigues me is that, based on the flashbacks, they were really sweet when they were still trainees, but what made their relationship cold when they got to debut? WHAT? WHY?
I don’t want my Dream High 2 couple shipping to end up like my Dream High 1 couple shipping. Yes. I shipped Suzy-Taecyeon back then. Weird. I know. But I still like Soo Hyun. But this time, I.JUST.WANT.THEM.TO.END.UP.TOGETHER.TOGETHER.
AND THE LAST PART OF EPISODE 10 WAS REALLY A CLIFFHANGER!!!!!
Got the photos from: http://www.facebook.com/SwordCouple
I’ve been spazzing on Yong Hwa for two months now. (HAHA!Proud?) I’m not really into music that’s why my eyes were just on Yong Hwa- the actor, not Yong Hwa-the leader of CN Blue.
But when I started watching WGM, I was introduced to the other 3 members, Jung Shin, Min Hyuk and Jong Hyun. I got to appreciate the humor these guys have… (knock!knock! Jung Shin chingu!!!!hahahaha). Yes. I’m into dorky, funny, what-ever-you-call those kind of guys. But before I knew it, I started to listen to their songs and watch some of their performances. And then BAM! BAM! BAM! I’M NOW OFFICIALLY, SELF-DECLARED FAN (actually, between a fan and a fangirl, that level).
So much for the brief history/ introduction, last wednesday my package arrived. And tadaaaa! Presenting my CN Blue shirt. It’s 1/3 of the stuffs I ordered this March so yeah.
I know the shirt’s too long and big for me but hey! I love it. I got to ‘t-shirt cut again!’. I only did the simple cuts below because I’m afraid I’d just end up murdering the shirt.haha!

Gotta learn how to do t-shirt cutting perfectly! :)
