Big News for Big

Just for the record that title sucks, but I wanted to join in on the punny party led by the lovely ladies at Dramabeans. Boy do I love the puns we can squeeze out of it.

Anyways, the drama I'm talking about is Big. Yes, that's the title. It's another drama by the magical, hilarious sisterly duo commonly known as the Hong sisters. The are the mastermind behind one of my favorite dramas of all time, Sassy Girl Chun-hyang and maker of other super dramas with My Girlfriend is a Gumiho and Best Love as their two most recent. There's many, many reasons why I'm so excited for the drama. And here's why!

Blogger Hates YouTube?

Is that a bad title? But it really does have something to do with Blogger (the blogging platform, not me as a blogger) is having problems with embedded YouTube videos. A few of my older videos which previously have embedded YouTube videos, mostly the First Take music editions and some movie trailers, just disappeared without a trace. Does anyone know why that happens? I searched Google for answers but nothing came up.

Anyways, with this I need your help. If you happen to spot a post where the video disappeared (every First Take music edition has an embedded YouTube video), please comment on the post itself or inform me via Twitter @conanblue32. Or better yet, if anyone knows why this is happening and how to fix it, please do tell! I don't know if the missing video is annoying to you, but it is to me and mostly because I don't want to present you a post that's supposed to have a video in it but it turns out it doesn't.

So that's it for this post. Sorry if any of you were expecting reviews and whatnot. Just a heads up, I may not be able to post anything in the next couple weeks due to finals. I'll try to squeeze in something. Hopefully there's a cool MV out so I can write a First Take on it. And that's the blog-related announcement of the day. Have a great week everybody :D

First Take: INFINITE's The Chaser

After spending a few months in Japan in attempt to take over the world one country at a time, INFINITE is back with a rockin' new Korean song. 'The Chaser' sounds very INFINITE and it's not a bad thing. And if there's one thing that is different, it's their maturity. So check out this song!

First Take: Nell with The Day Before

Korean rock band Nell is a rarity in the world of Korean music because they have a solid fanbase and has had it for years (over a decade!) now. And it's not just the fans they had in the late 90s, early 2000s that love them. Many people do, whether old or new. It's not really strange, because they have music like The Day Before. Filled with sorrow yet eerily soothing, this song showcases the awesomeness that is Nell.

Jo Seung-woo is Not Just Doing Movies and Musicals

Oh wow. I am pretty much speechless right now. For some reason this is huge news and it really is. Maybe for me and no one else but this is still humongous huge. Mr. Movie Star Jo Seung-woo is taking his first shot in, drumroll please, a drama! That's right, he's coming to a small screen near you! Yes, it's the crazy, luck of the draw, no sleep for months Korean dramas. And he's doing it out of friendship. Of course you are.
