Generic Korean

In the latest episode of Radio Star, Shayne told the viewers that he loved Korea and would be willing to change his citizenship to pursue music there.  I’m going to do a recap of the entire show when I have some time but I thought this needed its own post.  Good for him but really?  I mean the novelty factor has died down and he’s not always going to have the support of translators, mentors and production crews to get around.  I guess I’m skeptical because he hasn’t lived the normal korean citizen life yet.  When all this dies down and you’re just a normal dude standing in the middle of Myungdong and some random old dude punches you in the ass for standing in his way screaming racial epithets at you, then come and tell me you want to join.  Korea’s got a lot of great things but there’s a lot of bad stuff that comes with it.  I just don’t think he’s seen enough of the bad to make a educated choice on the matter.


On another note, Shayne’s looking great as does most of the other contestants…except Lee Tae Kwon.  How can the dude gain weight on such a hectic schedule?

 

Looks like another MBC Star Audition contestant has been picked up.  Kim Hyeri the mentee for Lee Eun Mi has signed an exclusive contract with Yedang Entertainment.  The company is the home of singers Im Jae Bum, Rania, ChiChi, etc.  So uh when do we get to hear news of any of the top 3 signing contracts?  Crickets…

First of all, hot prosecutor is Hwat.

Second, Ahjussi got a 1 Billion Won bribe? That’s like a million dollars!  Yeah, I can see why he would have wanted to change his story.  And after he gets all that money he spends like nothing!  If I got a million dollars of blood money I’d spend it all on alcohol, bags, shoes and charity.  You know to counteract all that guilty.

Third, what kind of magical contraption is this?!  I’ve seen and used plastic gloves to eat chicken but is this like the deconstructed version of that?  I mean gloves are cool but these just look like condoms for your fingers…only three fingers at that.

Oh and Nana gets shot.  If she died it’d be a great plot advancer although I don’t see the writers being that bad ass.

When I watched Ned Stark get his head chopped off in episode 9 of Game of Thrones I thought “holy shit did they just kill the main fucking character?!!!”  But you know what, killing one of your main characters tells the viewers that all bets are off and shit just got real.

This came up on an AMA on reddit and it’s pretty interesting.

Most interesting convo:

Q)  Have you ever met Rain? If so, is he really as sweet and down-to-earth as he seems in interviews?

A) I have seen him around before. But never talked to him. He’s very down to earth though, talks to staff and what not. He kind of intimidates me for some reason lol.

A2) My bf’s boss met him in the elevator of a swanky hotel not having a clue who he was. Rain struck up a conversation with Boss first and was really friendly and down to earth. When the elevator opened there was a flood of paps waiting, cameras flashing etc. and Boss went “Which schmuck are they waiting for?!”. Rain laughed and said “Schmuck is me.” Handed Boss a calling card inviting him to a VIP party, waved and walked off. Classy dude 🙂

I don’t even know if any of this is true but I will believe it.

The Ohio State University Medical Center states that 90% of all Asian Americans are lactose intolerant.  Sounds right.  Man it’s been years since I’ve had a bowl of cereal or a lick of soft serve ice cream.  Why sweet baby Jesus did you turn me from a milk loving free spirited woman to a lactose intolerant, slightly depressed half-woman?!!  WHYYYY!

I can’t have cheese ramyun.

I can’t even have crazy delicious ice cream

Why does soy milk taste like watered down milk and lactaid taste like lactaid?

 

 

 

It was announced a few weeks ago that Sung Kang, who happens to be one of my imaginary boyfriends (aka I followed his career like a stalker) was going to star in a movie called “Bullet to the Head” alongside Sylvester Stallone.  The movie’s about a NY cop whose partner is murdered and goes down to New Orleans to investigate.  The NY cop meets up with a NO’s cop who is investigating a murder connected to the NY cop murder and shoot outs, sexy time, and etc etc occur.  Supposedly Sung might be playing the role of the NY cop.

NY Magazine (who has the best tv recaps online) just came out with an article where the actor Thomas Jane blasted the movie for firing him.  Supposedly Joel Silver the producer of the film fired Jane because in movies like these there’s a formula and the formula calls for one white guy + one ethnic guy.

Hey Mr. Jane, how does it feel being shitted on for the color of your skin?  Yeah, that’s what us “ethnic” people deal with every fucking day.  At least Jane was replaced with someone who has actual talent.  You know how shitty it feels when they turn an Asian character into a white one and then to add insult to injury the actor fucking sucks?

On another note, Jason Momoa aka Khal aka Moon of Khalasar’s Life has joined the movie as the villain.  So much hotness.  If only Stallone wasn’t in it.  By the way, this clip was in no way found by me googling “jason momoa butt naked.”  I swear.

From Quest Crew’s Twitter page:

“Korean star jang geun seok(dun kno if its right spell) shuffling in tokyo japan with the song party rock anthem!!”

Hwang Tae Kyung shuffling?  LMFAO.
