Down Memory Lane…

So, I had this urge to just suddenly blog about…the past. As you can tell, I’ve been pretty much ‘away’ from the TVB scene…kind of (minus FungYi, somewhat). Anyway, been heading back to Kpop, but I don’t know..it doesn’t feel the same anymore. Which brings me to this – Fly To The Sky. Yeah, you may have no idea who they are or how they’re related to this post, but it doesn’t matter – I’m still going to rant. I just realized about Fly To The Sky’s comeback and possibly, last album before they do separate solo activities.

Fly To The Sky’s Performance

Listening to this and watching them perform, made me nostalgic. Honestly, I’ve been into Kpop for the longest time ever. It’s not the same anymore. I was a fan during Shinhwa, Finkl, SES, FTTS, HOT, etc. days and I can’t help but feel a bit disappointed/sad that they’re no longer here. First time’s always the best? Those groups were the first thing that got me into Kpop. I really missed watching them. I loved everything back in the 2000’s. The fanfics, the gasoos, the music, the shows…just everything. Everything was entertaining to me. I spent days watching subbed shows and literally everything I could find of the popular idols then. I stayed up so late to hunt down fanfics and laughed at variety shows so much my stomach hurts. But now..they cut all the good variety shows (X-man and Love Letter) and I’m not saying there aren’t good fanfics around, there are, but really rare. And the thing is…I don’t feel the same reading those fanfics even though it may have DBSK, SNSD or an artist/group that I like. I loved those fanfics revolving around the ’79 club. The authors to those fanfics seemed to have disappeared too. Everyone in the ’79 club broke up and went their separate ways because they are really no longer ‘idols’ or ‘fairies’. Oh, don’t get me started on the netizens. I’m not exactly sure what it was like then, but I’m pretty sure it was much, much better back then compared to what it’s like now. At least that’s what I believe to be true. I mean, antis seriously pretended to be an artist’s fan to harm him/her and inconsiderate (SNSD’s Dream Concert). They’re so…extreme. Ugh.

Another song from Fly To The Sky (old) – Like A Man

It’s sad to see them sort of breaking up. Really the best RnB Kpop Duo out there. They’re still going to release singles and mini-albums, but not albums anymore. Ah well..even though they said they would release singles and mini-albums, what are the chances? It’ll probably be like 5 years before a release and it might as well be deemed as none. I’m not a big fan of Fly To The Sky but I do love their songs and mainly because, they’re from the ’79 club. I guess…their semi-breakup kind of makes me think of the ’79 club and how it was like back then. Sigh…

Shinhwa – Wedding

It’s not just happening to Kpop either; it’s the same thing for TVB and I think (hope) you know what I mean. TVB series and productions have been going downhill lately. To be honest, I think it was also during the days when Michelle Yip was still around that TVB was at its best. Hm..somewhere during 2003’ish? I don’t know. I wasn’t much of a fan then as you can probably tell, I was obsessed with something else. I had been lurking around though.

Sigh…away from all this saddening things – girl group, KARA, finally performed their song “Honey”. I like this better than “Pretty Girl”. The Kongrish in “Pretty Girl” was horrible.

KARA – Honey

Congratulations SNSD for their 5th win on the K-Chart! Soshi Jjang! ^^
