EXO FINALLY RELEASES MIRACLES IN DECEMBER…teasers. Yep, just the teasers.

EXO's "Miracle in December" teasers are finally out...yep, just the teasers...darn, right?

EXO’s “Miracle in December” teasers are finally out…yep, just the teasers…darn, right?

So, after being notified at approximately 2pm today AEST that EXO will be releasing “Miracle in December “and I quote “later on today” I was pretty excited. When someone tells me that, I would assume only a couple of hours later, maybe at 4-5pm; not at 9 something pm, and definitely not when I was ready to place myself in bed and shut off for the day.

Honestly, it wasn’t just me who assumed this right, right??

*Sigh* Anyway, let’s do this.

ending title shot

Finally by catching up on the recent episode of “The Heirs”, I saw the recent teaser for the next upcoming series on SBS called 별에서 온 그대, or literally You Who Came From the Stars, starring Kim Soo-Hyun and Jeon Ji-Hyun as the main leads. Not much is seen in both teasers that have been released thus far, but what we see is enough to get us both interested and hooked.

Lovely to see them back once again...prepare the waterworks people!

Lovely to see them back together once again…prepare the waterworks people!

So, as the title has pretty much summed up the feels that I’m feeling at the moment, somehow this has become a thing now. And I ask myself, “How the hell did this happen?! Have I really been excluded from my own Chinese pop culture that long now?” And the only answer I can come up with is yes. Yes I have.

Different post from the usual, but necessary

Different post from the usual, but necessary

I believe the title says it all.

Not much needs to be said here, and I won’t bother saying much as well in order to avoid ruining the movie for anyone. I should have posted this earlier, but hey, better late than never right?

Pre-debut pictures released about a K-pop idol…Holy Crap, is that Ailee?!

Afternoon everybody…

So, as many of you probably have seen on AllKpop, there has apparently been a couple of released photos of a person who resembles the “Beyonce of Korea”, Ailee.

As the AllKpop article itself has shut the ENTIRE site down, I am only able to comment on the article from my memory.

3 Comments

Hey everybody!! So, a video has been posted up on Youtube a couple of hours ago, showing a clip of the Running Man fan meeting which was held in Singapore yesterday.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgHOQk8wbPE

Update on 1st December 2013: I’ve realised that the clip below has been removed by SBS. Here is another link that I found of the video; the magic words are said at 1:21-22:

As you can see from the clip above, our Ji-Hyo has FINALLY SAID THE MAGIC WORDS!!! They are truly adorable for each other, despite their circumstances. Ji-Hyo, when will you realise your true feelings for the man LOL!

Regardless of what happens, I will continue shipping the Monday Couple and also Spartace *cough cough*

Hope you guys enjoy the clip, and sorry if you think it’s a little lacking. I’ve been a little busy with uni (two more weeks until end of semester, YAY!) but very soon, I will be starting a new challenge (hint hint it includes kpop!) very soon once uni is out!

Thank you guys for watching, and I will get back to you soon!

❤ Yami Hyunnie ^^~
