SO I jumped at the opportunity to share my love for Korean music. Now most already know my heart beats for only one man in KPop (and the world), RAIN. He is the artist that introduced to me to KPop through seeing him act in Ninja Assassin, he was SO fine I was like Where did he come FROM?. lol I started to research about this man named “Rain” and lo and behold YouTube uncovered what is now beloved by millions called KPOP. I had never in my life heard of it.
TVXQ was the first KPop Group I listened to. It was their song “Wrong Number” from the Mirotic album. I first saw the video of TVXQ (or DBSK depending on what you want to call them) performing it at the 2008 MAMA awards. That was actually the last time they would ever perform as a group of 5 at that award show again. Even though they are split now I enjoy both groups and daily listen to their past and present songs.
|During their “Mirotic” era.|
I thought it would be befitting to sing a cover of this song to pay homage to the very first non-Rain KPop song I ever listened to. I used to sing along with the song all the time but I will tell you there is a HUGE difference between humming to a song and ACTUALLY learning the lyrics IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE! Ha I’m learning to speak Korean at a steady pace but saying long sentences at the speed of light is NOT something I’m equipped to do. I learned all the correct words and pronunciations within a week and went through mistake after mistake trying to record the video. I finally got done with it before the deadline that day and was relieved. Of course me being the goofy person I am, couldn’t have made a video without putting a few jokes in there.
Hopefully you all enjoy it. I tried to put a little soul in the song. One of the reasons why I love the song is because it being a sassy and gritty song that one could really do a lot of extra vocal things with. I’m a little nervous posting a video of me singing but hey, I’ve never let anything scare me to the point that I didn’t at least try. I mean, I didn’t let MOVING to Korea scare me so why should I let this? lol
Also to folks who get my posts by email I will include the YouTube link to click and view it on because I don’t think videos show up on the emails for some reason.
Anywho PLEASE ENJOY.
