I have learned since listening to this mini album that I am probably the only one who is totally amazed by the two songs because they aren't really "new" songs. I guess they were performed at the Hex Sign concert and since I have kind of gotten out of my concert video/variety show/candid stuff phase I didn't hear about it. I'm not too sad about that though because I got to hear the song "Memory" for the first time and I am OBSESSED with it. Like dang, it has been on repeat on Youtube since yesterday because it wasn't on iTunes when I checked, but now it is and I definitely need that song in my life.

I've never actually listened to a Rainbow album before so I am going into this completely blind, or deaf rather. I have nothing to compare this album to other than the singles that they have put out over the years and a single doesn't always reflect the album as a whole.
Before we begin, as I am looking at the album cover I am once again annoyed at the chance that was lost in the "Black Swan" video. It could have been so cool and creepy and it wasn't! Dang it!
This is definitely not a VIXX that we have seen in a while but it is still majorly cute if maybe a little cringe inducing, but it's definitely a video that makes you smile. After listening to the inspiration song, you know that this video will probably have a cute concept, but it's another thing entirely to see it. It's also videos like this that makes me wonder if Leo ever questions his life choices. He wasn't as awkward as I thought he would be though and Ken was obviously in his element the whole time this was filmed.
In a lot of the shots of this video I was also glad to see that VIXX looked like they were legitimately having fun. There is definitely a different between a fake smile and a real smile and there was a lot of real smiles happening in this video and that makes my heart happy. They K-pop industry is a scary place and it is good to see that there is some happiness up in there occasionally.
Second MV review of the year and it's a girl group! Who saw that coming? Not me that's for sure. I had forgotten that Rainbow was making a comeback so I was getting ready to put my VIXX hat on and while I haven't taken that hat off, that Rainbow hat is sitting on top at the moment.
I can't believe that it's almost March and I have hardly written anything yet, but none of the music that has been released thus far has appealed to me. I had high hopes for Amber's solo debut, but to be perfectly honest I didn't love "Shake That Brass". It wasn't bad, but it didn't grab my attention the way that I had hoped. "Beautiful" on the other hand was, well, beautiful. I much preferred that song to the former.

But seriously, I was pretty excited when I heard about this drama because of the before mentioned Choi Woo Shik, it's a tvN romcom, and the writer of this drama also wrote Flower Boy Ramyun Shop which is one of my top dramas. I'm hoping that all these things can make this drama as wonderful as I hope that it will be.

Yes, yes, yes. A million times yes and then some. This drama was perfect from the story, to the characters, to the ending. This ending gave me what I wanted from City Hunter and was denied. Don't get me wrong, that drama was fantastic, but I flipped a small table when the characters kind of looked at each other and then walked away dramatically. Why do writer do things like that?
First off, I almost didn't watch this drama. I had heard about it, but didn't take the time to look into it. It wasn't until I read a recap on Dramabeans that I realized the mistake that I was making and I then spent the next two days marathoning my missed episodes and it was a two days well spent.
