korean rain

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

Looking for new music to listen to?

Then let’s play a game.

Okay, so the rules are very simple. Choose a word which is specific to you. Whether that be your name (nickname), favourite colour, favourite actor/singer, favourite country, a food you like, the season of the year you enjoy most (autumn for me), whatever. Choose whatever is dear to you.

Once you’ve chosen, choose a song starting with each letter of the word (and link them [to Youtube, if you can] for convenience) then tag a friend to do the same. (If you can’t find a song to go with a letter, skip it, or just choose a song by an artist you like who’s name begins with that letter instead.)

The hope is that this will help to introduce people to new music they wouldn’t have found on their own. I’m a huge fan of KPop, and lately that’s all I’ve been listening to, and I sit there watching the MVs sometimes wondering “How the hell is this not more popular here? Who cares that it’s not in English, the beat/sound is incredible!“

So don’t be discouraged at recommending a song just because it isn’t in English (or whatever your first-language is). If it’s a song you like, then go ahead and list it. (I’ve listened to such a wide variety of songs in multiple languages. I only fluently speak English —thought I have basic knowledge of German and I’m presently learning Korean— but I have songs in: German, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and Chinese on my iPod right now that I regularly jam to.)

Okay, I’m rambling, but here’s my go at this. I hope someone who listens to these comes across at least one they like that they have never heard before. (If that happens and from then on you start obsessing over a particular group/artist because of it (happened to me with 비Rain, feel free to message me to spazz a bit. I would be honoured to partake in some fangirling with new people. :)

My word is: Orlando (Bloom — aka my first love. xD)

O — “Oh Nana” by K.A.R.D

R — “Really, Really” by Winner

L — “La Song” by Rain

A — “Aquaman” by Jay Park.

N — “Not Today” by BTS

D — "Dear Mama Don’t Cry” by Rain

O — “One of a Kind” G-Dragon

Also, feel free to do this multiple times if you want (with different words) just try and choose songs you haven’t chosen before. :D (I don’t have friends on here that I talk to a lot but I suppose I shall tag the last people I messaged: @kpopfan-antics @ilovezankie2040)

“One word that describes my personality: exciting, because I’m excited. And I’m fucking cute.” Drunk Bloo (Instagram Live 2/11/17) He said he is not fucked up enough, but as we can tell from his live he is fucked up. He’s watching skins rn, he says he really likes the show. I haven’t watched skins but his favorite character is James cook and he “fucking” hates Freddie. He also loves High School Musical and he thinks all the songs are great. He also brought up that he hates himself and he’s sad. But bitch knows he’s cute, and he’s been smiling this whole live.

Watch the MV here! This one was pretty short because the songs lyrics repeat a lot.
