When we last left off, I insinuated that our Dong Bang Boys MAY HAVE BEEN A LITTLE OVERWORKED STARTING ABOUT 2005-6 JFC.

AHEM.

There were of course, promotions for Rising Sun, which turned out to be a JUGGERNAUT, BITCH! Naturally, SME said to themselves, "How can we squeeze more money out of these guys get more exposure for TVXQ?"

Answer: BANJUN DRAMAS!!!

This collection of totally unrelated episodes may not have garnered any acting awards for the boys like they had for their hyung, Rain (HALLOWED BE HIS NAME) they are HEARTBREAKING WORKS OF STAGGERING GENIUS OKAY.

*cracks knuckles*

THIS IS GONNA GET EPIC.

SM Did Not Hand In 'TVXQ Documents'

The Preservation of Evidence request that TVXQ's YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu has not been followed through.The Seoul District accepted the three members' request and asked their agency SM Entertainment to hand in all documents relevant to this trial. However, it has been found that SM has not hand in these documents even though the 20 days the Courts gave them expired on the 26th.

These documents are crucial as the Courts even stated at the first hearing on the 21st that they needed documents relevant to this trial to come to a decision. The Courts stated, "After going through all the documents that must be submitted by the 26th, the Courts will come to a decision three weeks later on September 11th."


This is because these documents will determine whether SME's claim that TVXQ earned 49.8 billion Won as well as their claim that SME earned 148.7 billion Won is true or not. This means that TVXQ's income and output will all be revealed. Many fans have stated that the amount SME stated was TVXQ's total earnings was very questionable. A lot of attention was focused on the trial as many believed they would be able to reveal and eliminate all monetary problems and rumors about the agency and the group.

But in truth, it is hard for SME to adhere to this request. If SME submits all documents including account books, receipts and transaction, all their expenses and true income will be revealed. The secrets that may be revealed include 'company secrets' that SME has developed over the years to debut singers.

One representative said, "We have already shown as much as we can for this trial. It is impossible for us to hand in all our documents relevant to this trial."

Many fans have stated that the amount SME stated TVXQ earned was very questionable. They say that all the money from albums, events, CFs, photobooks, DVDs, and other services adds up to a staggering amount. Fans handed in a petition to the Human Rights Commission of Korea on the 28th stating that SME was violating the human rights of TVXQ with their exclusive contract.

First Love Part Two with English subtitles. Still made of gold and crack.

We open with Hye Bin just having finished with the cleaning of the gym per the orders from her BDSM master Yunho, when suddenly...

Obsessive Fangirl Expy comes on the scene. Here's where it gets a little weird. OFE has two younger male groupies (perhaps she is modeling herself after Ms. Dominatrix?) who wear skirts for no apparent reason. OFE demands that Hye Bin forget all about Yunho...because Yunho is hers, despite the fact that we have seen no evidence of this to this point. Hye Bin is as confused as we are, and even more clueless about her own situation. She claims not to like Yunho, which sets OFE off.

Hye Bin: I don't like guys like Yunho. (LIES!)
OFE: Bitch, you crazy.

And like anyone remotely aware of reality, OFE attempts to smack some sense into Hye Bin, only to be foiled by Yoochun and his Pimp Hand. Again Hye Bin and Yoochun exchange MEANINGFUL LOOKS THAT LEAD TO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING GAH.

Cut to: Sports class.

Now, I'm a little confused here, because unless I am mistaken, Yunho had ordered Hye Bin to the gym directly after school and then told her to CLEAN UP HIS DAMN MESS WOMAN. Unless she was up all night cleaning up after the kumdo club, people should be, you know, GOING HOME AT SOME POINT. But no, it's now sports class, so perhaps it is true that Hye Bin was up all night cleaning. ANYWAY, Hye Bin makes a not so subtle effort to get close to Yoochun during warmups, an action which inflames Yunho's jealousy. MOAR MEANINGFUL LOOKS ARE EXCHANGED OMG, Yunho pouts and plots his revenge and Ms. Dominatrix shows up because her body is rigid OMFG I WISH I WERE KIDDING. So too is the Submissive Gym Teacher, who rescues her from lawsuit hell after she attempts to engage Yunho and Yoochun in a threesome some flexibility-testing exercises. Ahem. SGT sends Yunho and Yoochun off to play team basketball (what could go wrong?) and then leads Ms.Dominatrix away for some diaper play and spankings "stretching".

Cut to: Basketball game.

IT IS ON LIKE DONKEY KONG, FOLKS.

Each boy has his own cheering section and like the naughty, disobedient girl she is (that or very, very clever) Hye Bin sits in the Yoochun section. Yunho makes a basket. Obsessive Fangirl Expy flails. BUT YUNHO CARES NOT FOR OBSESSIVE FANGIRL EXPY. He looks straight to Hye Bin for approval. She looks bored. Yunho is sad. Yoochun takes advantage of his opponent's emotional state and jukes him, scoring a basket for his team. Yoochun looks to Hye Bin for approval and SINCE HE IS THE PIMP AND ALL, he gets it. This only upsets Yunho more. He gets desperate. So he fouls Yoochun, which was a bad call on his part, because now Hye Bin thinks he's an even bigger jerk. When he sees the horrified look on her face, he is devastated. At this point, I'm beginning to wonder who really is the sensitive one here.

The Boys continue their PUBLIC DICK-SWINGING CONTEST (WHICH IF IT WERE REAL,YUNHO WOULD BE THE UNDISPUTED CHAMPION)...



...one-upping each other, but we never see who wins the game (foreshadowing) and we cut abruptly to Hye Bin in her room mooning over Yoochun. Everything he does is dreamy, including getting knocked on his ass by Yunho, apparently. She is, for the good of us all, interrupted from her reverie by the UNF UNF bass tones of Yunho, calling to her from underneath her bedroom window JUST LIKE ROMEO AND JULIET OMG.

Cue: Yunho in all his Rising Sun glory, leaning on his motorcycle, beckoning her to him with a single finger UNF. She obeys her Master and comes outside. If you are familiar with very basic Korean, you will hear her address him as "Yunho-yah", which means they have a close relationship (so much for not liking him). Like a good Master, he replies frostily, "Why weren't you at Kumdo practice? Who told you to go home without the word of your owner?" BECAUSE I'D LIKE TO GET SOME SLEEP SOME TIME THIS WEEK, she did not answer. Instead she tries to act all ignorant about the terms of their arrangement. Yunho gently puts her in her place and then tells her to get on his bike. It may surprise you to note that he says all these things as tenderly and gently as he does, yet firmly, like a father chastising a wayward child. It's called subtlety, and it's one more fine example of Yunho's acting ability. HATERS 2 DA LEFT.

What comes next is a scene that if you found the "Henry the XIII" story from Ghost romantic (the "I annoyed her until she agreed to go out on a date with me" method), you will swoon like mad here. Yunho takes Hye Bin for a ride on his motorcycle. As he speeds through Seoul and she shrieks in fright he offers her a few options:

Do you want to go out with me or do you want to fall into the HanGang River?!

Do you want to go out with me, or do you want to die together?! Trust me, it's kinda funny and charming IN CONTEXT. Especially when followed with:

Do you want to go out with me or do you want to buy me dinner?!

FOR A MOMENT, JUST A MOMENT, SHE SMILES before returning back to being terror-stricken. Yunho smiles.

What? You're going to go out with me?

AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, SHE FINALLY GIVES IN TO THE YUNHO CHARM.

He smiles the sweetest smile, then accelerates the motorbike even more, causing her to spontaneously wrap her arms around his midsection. You know, like she probably should have been doing the whole time SO SHE DOESN'T FUCKING FALL OFF JFC.

The next day...the classroom is filled with gossip. Yunho has already put the word out, it seems, and Yoochun is the last one to know. The couple enter the room with Hye Bin looking like they'd just had sex on his motorbike in the parking lot. Yunho makes sure to show any doubters what is really up by insisting that Hye Bin sit with him. What is amazing is that Yoochun is even shocked about this turn of events. Obsessed Fangirl Expy is beyond pissed.

Yoochun is going to have to bring his A game if he wants to keep up even a semblance of a position in this little love triangle. But don't worry, he's got something in his pants up his sleeve.

First Love Part 1. Eng Subs. Even if you have to read my commentary first, just watch it. It is made of gold and crack.

First Love burns so good. It feels so right and yet is so wrong. I am talking, of course, of the Banjun Drama that starred Yuhno and Yoochun back in the day. As if written by a brilliant and perverted fangirl forced to work under the typical restraints of K-dramas starring pop idols, First Love seems to be a statement on repressed sexuality. Indeed, unless I am mistaken, given my western gaze, there is a whole lot of kinky going on.
I said, a whole lotta kinky going on... )

...and it's only just begun.

First, the big one.


Most people believe that the "guy standing in front of the tank" picture is the most appropriate, but I believe that this one is more effective, so there's no question as to what happened. I remember seeing film footage of the protesters on the news, but they never showed the aftermath. At the time, I really believed they could pull it off. I think many of us did. And it broke my heart. And what's worse, is most young people DON'T EVEN REMEMBER. Censorship works, folks.

The Tiananmen Square Massacre was 20 years ago today.



And now, David Carradine is dead of an apparent suicide.

I never got to see Kung Fu, but I know of people who enjoyed it. For me, I will always remember his amazing work in Kill Bill, Vols I & II. I believed it then, and I believe it now that he deserved an Oscar nomination. But the Academy couldn't see past Tarantino's fanboy squee-fest to see the brilliance. Farewell, Grasshopper.

On a lighter note...
...cut for silly nonsense... )
