Here is the original, guys :’D
GD: “Ugly? Who dares to call you that? Damn, you are the most beautiful girl I have ever laid my eyes on, did you know? Every man would die to be with you but they cannot because you are mine.Only mine. Period! I am not giving you away, princess. I love every part of you, especially that adorable baby fat on your stomach. Now let me kiss that spot and make you forget about those silly thoughts of yours. ‘Ugly’, tsk! You must be kidding me, baby.”
TOP: “Ugly? Why do you call yourself like that? Aren’t you being a bit unfair to yourself? I mean, look at those cute sparkling eyes of yours. Have you forgotten the countless times I got lost in them? You made me almost speechless the first time I saw you and you still do, babe. And your lips, I have to control myself from attacking you with kisses whenever we are in public. So don’t ever speak such nonsense about being ugly again, arrasso?”
DAE: “Ugly? Are you joking with me, Jagiya? You are b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l, okay? Beautiful - in all ways possible. So what’s so attractive about those sticks called models these days? They walk around, pale like dead bodies and thin like a saltstick. No way I would look at them! I prefer my sweet Jagiya and her breath-taking smile. You make Oppa crazy, I swear. Come here and hug me now and I will tell you thousand things I like about you.”
SR: “Ugly? You? HAHAHAHA - No, wait! You are being serious, aren’t you? Oh baby girl ! What is going on in that cute little head of yours? Can’t you see how much your boyfriend adores you or are you doing this on purpose? I love you! I love all of you! I can’t keep my eyes off you for one second whenever you are around and you tell me that you’re feeling ugly? Bullshit. My baby is perfect!”
YB: “Ugly? Which part of you do you call ugly? We all have insecurities, love. I do, too. In fact, I am often afraid that you will find someone more handsome, more attractive than me. Whenever I look at you, I ask myself what I have done to deserve such a beautiful and mesmerizing girl like you, a girl that makes me want to touch her and kiss her all the time. You are the prettiest girl in my universe, baby. Believe me that.”
A/N: This one is sooo random, I know! :’)
I don’t know why but I felt like writing this. We girls usually have a lot of insecurities (Like Youngbae says here ^^) and sometimes, a look in a mirror can bring you down. I experience that often, I think a lot of us do and that’s why I wanted to cheer everyone up! You are beautiful!! :-)
"Who the hell is one of a kind here?”, you may ask yourself now. Are you confused? Well, be prepared to become more puzzled when I drop the name G-Dragon for you all! The Leader of South Korea’s top boygroup BIGBANG is back with his second solo album “One of A Kind” and ready to rock your ears with sounds as various as the haircolours had over the years. (Side note: He is known for changing his appearance like others change their underwear!)
Kwon Ji Yong, that’s G-Dragon’s real name, is only 25 years old and already seen as a multitalent in the Korean music business. His abilities go from rapping,singing and dancing to writing and even producing. Rumours say that over 100 songs have been written by his young hand and this includes not only his own singles but also other artist’s hits! However, let’s focus on the newest material he has released: "One of A Kind".
Three years have passed since his very first solo-album "Heartbreaker"(which was very successful by the way!)and fans have been anticipating their idol’s new work as much as lions anticipate fresh meat after being hungry for a while. It was up to G-Dragon – or GD for short – to fill all those growling stomachs and that’s why he came right out of the studio with seven freshly produced tracks, three music videos and a photobook, all wrapped up in a stylish package that seems to represent the arist’s unique taste in everything. Being the perfectionist that he is, one can assume that GD personally prepared this little gift for his fans in order to make it perfect for them, not forgetting the little note thats says "Thank you ☺”.
But you cannot judge a book by its cover. Can you?
Yes, we can! (At least this time!)
Vote for G-Dragon because he has something for every individual’s problem! Are you a lovesick wreck ? Try "Without You" and cry yourself to sleep and if you long for a special person, switch to "Missing You". Both songs are a perfect ode to the romantic ones among us. The two ladies’ strong voices - Kim Yoon Ah’s and Park Chae Young’s - to be exact, only support GD’s attempts at portraying his personal experiences through his music. Furthermore, they match wonderfully with his own voice, which he likes to play with in this album. While he sings in his usual soft and soothing voice in "Without You", he sounds much more determined and honest in"Missing You". This way the listeners – and I mean every listener, not only Koreans– are able to understand the meaning of both songs easily and can cry and whistle along effortlessly. "That XX" is also dedicated to love, but more specifically to jealousy. "What does that bastard have that I don’t?", is what GD sings and what we all think when we see a beloved person with someone else. It seems like the lyrics are universal and understandable for everyone who has been in love at least once. Two things about this track though: Listen to the uncensored version in order to feel it more intensely (Yes, there is a reason why the song was named "That XX" in Korea). Also, get used to the fact that G-Dragon tends to sing a bit nasaly. That might sound unpleasant to some people but it actually has its own charm, too.
Now before all the party people here feel discriminated, let’s talk about two other songs, which are "Today" and “Crayon.”. Especially the latter has gained big popularity in Korea and has become a typical earworm thanks to the repeating part: "Get your crayon!". Put your pencils away, man! It’s just a pun! “Get your crayon!”actually means "Get your cray on!" or more specifically "Get your crazy on!" To put it in a nutshell: Be nuts! Be freaky! This track is perfect for any party out there, nice to dance and jump to."Today"contains a similiar message like "Crayon" even though this track is less hectic and more on the ‘rockish’ side, regarding the sound. It can be compared with a roller coaster, always starting off slow, with Kim Jong Wan’s high-pitched introduction and going on with GD’s cocky rapping and singing. The lyrics speak for themselves: "Today I don’t care cause we’re wild and young […] Today […] I am rocking my life away" So party people, enjoy!
Nevertheless, let’s not forget G-Dragon’s roots: Hip Hop. Yes, Kwonleader (another nickname) has collaborated with fellow rappers such as Tablo and Dok2 for "Light It Up", an anthem to all of you who like to act untouchable from time to time. The background music itself sounds almost provoking and so does each sportingly divided part of the three rappers. Their different tones of voice make this track even more interesting for your ears.
GD says it himself,says that he is “One of a Kind” (= title track), extraordinary and definitely not mainstream.But in order to believe me, you must check this album out and see it with your own eyes, hear it with your own ears. Have an open mind, drop your prejudices against weird fashion and enjoy!
Omo VIPs, GD is leading! You are the best, big thanks to everyone who voted !
Now let’s try to keep him on #1 :)
Our leader is nominated for Fuse TV’s ‘Best new Pop artist’ & he is the second most voted artist after Belinda from Mexico!
He has 43% of the votes while she has 55%, but we can top that! :) We did once (EMA)
I think you can vote as much as you want, just refrest the page. But honestly, even if all of us voted once, that would be really nice :)
Please reblog this & thank you
"Your first stage, the dances are too weird. I wish they would be a bit heavier. On a stage, you need something memorable. Because your ‘GG Be’ clothes seem like what you would ordinarily wear, let’s try to dress up a little bit more. Don’t try to look like a man, it doesn’t look cool. As I tell you always, you look too old when you do that. Things that people around you tell you, listen carefully to those words because they are all for your sake." (Source: BBU)
Why am I not surprised about the fashion advice here? :D hahah
A coup d’état; also known as a coup, a putsch, or an overthrow, is the sudden deposition of a governmentusually by a small group of the existing state establishment—typically the military—to depose the extant government and replace it with another body, civil or military
-> Basically, Jiyong seems to plan to claim his thrown as the ‘King of K-Pop’, introducing a complete new genre to Korea that will be 100% ‘him' :)
I am excited!
To begin with, before anyone thinks I am just some fangirl protecting everything her Oppa does : I am not. I am aware of the fact that he is human and that he makes mistakes sometimes - Like all of us. Oh & I am not black either. But please allow me to share my thoughts, fellow Vips.
That’s why I want to start with the contra part of this comment:
So Jiyong uploaded this picture on Instagram, probably not thinking much. I am convinced that he did neither mean to hurt/offend anyone nor that he wanted to imply on the Trayvon Martin case (Besides, I am not sure if he even knows about the latter, I admit I read about it later as well).
He is far from being a racist, that is something I and many others are 100% sure of. Therefore, what “The Guardian” and some websites wrote about him and BIGBANG is completely ridicilous in my opinion. They are potraying him like some racist when he is actually nothing but oblivious.
And that is actually what disappoints me.
Everybody can make a mistake, everybody can be careless with his utterings sometimes - even a global celebrity like GD. Objectively, that picture is offensive yes.Though I do not judge him for uploading an ambigious picture. If he really knew that people could misunderstand it, would he have uploaded it? I don’t think so.
But if you make a mistake, you have to take responsibility for it.
->That is what Jiyong should have done personally, in my opinion. Okay, his spokeperson explained that it was a huge misunderstanding. I believe that statement, I do. But one single tweet from GD to clear this mess up would have been so much more worth than that statement. If Jiyong used his Twitter to talk personally to his fans, that would have been great and (black) fans would have cheered up a bit and maybe forget that issue.I am sorry to say that, but I wished GD would be a bit more aware of the situation. I mean we are saying this because we care about him, right? If he was just some random person, we would have shrugged it off. But such issues are a playground for people who generally hate on him…
However, some statements I read here on Tumblr shocked me.
I am okay with people being disappointed, mad, sad about that issue (especially black VIPs). Tumblr is a blog community and everyone is allowed to share his thoughts here.
But I have a feeling some VIPs do not even talk about that picture anymore: They talk about G-Dragon in general and say things that really disappointed and shocked me.
What’s up with wanting him to “disappear for a while” , to stop “acting cool” (-> Some say that about Youngbae,too btw.) and such? Do you even know what you are saying? You are using the opportunity to rant about him in general.
Put a hand on your heart and ask yourselves: Do you really want him to disappear? Weren’t we all sad when that marijuana Issue came up? Or during Heartbreaker times, do you remember how he was almost put into jail? Jiyong once shaved his head and many thought he would entlist to the army soon…Say, weren’t you afraid? So what are you talking about wanting him to disappear? Please watch your words next time. Besides, instead of ‘disappearing’ you should wish for him to speak up, shouldn’t you? People call him coward and at the same time they support that idea.That is a bit ironic.
Don’t say such words please. One day, there won’t be BIGBANG, there won’t be G-Dragon. Keep that in your mind please. ._.
Another thing: "He is acting cool because he says dope and swag all the time."
That is something I read almost every day and I wonder: Why don’t you let him? Is it so bad for him to get in touch with international (Hip Hop) artists who inspire and influence him? Same goes for Youngbae.
G-Dragon is not just an idol, he is an artist. Of course he develops his personality and his style. Don’t we all do the same? I don’t know about you, but I am not the same person as I was years ago. My personality, my interests and thoughts all changed with every new experience I made day by day. I am sure a lot of VIPs can relate to that.
Why do you push him in a frame he no longer fits in? GD can’t produce “Heartbreaker” twice, you can’t expect him to constantly release the same kind of music and have the same kind of style. He is exploring new things - let him. I will be honest, Michigo is not my favourite song either, I am not saying you have to like all the new stuff he produces.Be critical, that is totally okay! But expecting him to be like this and that just beause we liked him that way - That is selfish. We have chosen to be VIPs, they have not chosen us.
If you say you can’t live with his new style, that is acceptable. But stop complaining about a person’s natural development please.
Besides, regardless of this issue (which I don’t want to shrug off here) and regardless of him being so oblivious sometimes…Regardless of his changing style…
Wasn’t he always a good leader? Please, how can you forget his hard work and respect towards seniors? Jiyong made and makes mistakes, but that does not make him a bad person. After all, he is the one who keeps bowing countless times, who donated money and visited a sick child in hospital, who created many great songs in which he shared his innermost feelings with us and which we all love. Everybody is talking about his humbleness. Have you ever seen him brag about a hit song though he has created many? (For himself & BIGBANG). And remember their documentary? How hard it was for them to be where they are now?
Nobody is forced to approve everything his favourite artists do, I don’t either. But it is sad to see how fast people forget why they started liking someone in the first place…Please remember those things. And using the opportunity to complain about hairstyles,vocabulary and fashion is really..Well, you name it.
I am sure nobody read this, but thank you :) !
Please spread this, too!
I just found out that BIGBANG is nominated,too (Best Group) !
Let’s vote for our boys! For all Blackjacks, 2NE1 is also nominated.
Guys, let’s vote together for our leader! I don’t know about our chances since there are so many great artists who are nominated, but at least we will be able to say : We tried!
He is nominated for 3 categories, omo!
- Best Male Artist
- Best Live Act
- Best Entertainer Of The Year
Oh, and please reblog this,too so other VIPs can have the chance to support our leader,too! Thank you guys! :)
I wanted to do a little marathon for you with scenarios for each member :) I will try to think of creative ideas but I can’t guarantee anything haha :’)
First one is a Kwon-leader story: "I didn’t mean to yell at you." Enjoy!
It hadn’t been his intention to yell at you when you had called him, telling him to come home please because it was getting dark and the thunder outside was scaring you so much. But with all the papers in front of him and all those unfinished tracks on the computer, he had gotten so frustraded that he had done it. He had yelled at you.
"Damn, I said I was working, ______-ah, and this album is very important to me! How can you expect me to quit right now just because you are scared of thunders? Don’t act so childishly, please!”
(end of flashback)
Jiyong bit his lip as the thought about you being alone at home and probably crying didn’t leave his mind for a second. Focusing on work was not even possible anymore. In fact, all those lyrics about ‘being-there-for-my-girl-no-matter-what’ made him feel guiltier and guiltier.
"Who am I kidding? I totally messed up.", he murmured silently while blankly glancing at the screen in front of him.
"Yah, Jiyong-ah, are you listening?"
"Huh? Sorry, did you say something, Hyung?"
Teddy just shook his head and grabbed a bottle of water. “Go. We will finish this tomorrow.”
Jiyong blinked. Had he heard right?
"Don’t look at me like that, man.", the older man chuckled, "Your face became pale after your last phonecall. Is everything ok with you and your girl?"
"Well," , Jiyong sighed, "She wanted me to come home cause she is scared alone at…"
"You left ______-ah alone at home? You do know that there is thunder outside, right?"
"Stop blaming me Hyung~", Jiyong whined, "I already feel guilty!"
The man with the hoodie and the cap put his water bottle down. “That’s why I told you to go. Go and fix that thing with your girlfriend, arasso? And don’t come back to this studio until you made sure you have apologized to her.”
"Thanks Hyung." , Jiyong said smiling and got off the chair. He quickly bowed to the producer and grabbed his coat.
Once again he was grateful to have such great co-workers and hyungs in his life. Choosing YG was definitely the right decision, Jiyong thought.
By the time he arrived at his apartment it was already 1:43am. He fiddled in his designer pant’s pockets until he finally found the keys and opened the door.
There was no response. Although he knew that you must be there, the atmosphere of an empty apartment overwhelmed him and it felt a bit like those miserable times when you hadn’t entered his life yet.
He absolutely hated this feeling.
So he made his way to your bedroom, knocking.
"Babe?", he repeated, but quiter, "Are you in there?"
Again there was no response. “She must be sleeping.”
Just when Jiyong was about to enter the room, he heard another door getting opened. Turning around, he was welcomed by the sight of you wearing a “One of A Kind” hoodie. Your hair was a bit messy but he didn’t care. He loved you like this and stared at you dreamily like it was the first time he has ever seen you.
"Jiyong-ah," , you said softly when you saw him standing there, "You are back already? Were you able to finish the tracklist?"
His stare fixed on you, he only nodded in response, approaching you with a slight smile on his face. To be honest, you were a bit confused by his actions. Hadn’t he shouted at you an hour ago? Weren’t he angry?
"Well..have you eaten? You haven’t, have you? I will go and…"
However, you could go nowhere because Jiyong had you in his arms the next moment, putting his chin on your head and stroking your waist comfortingly.
"J-Jiyong-ah…Is everything alright?", you asked him worriedly.
"You must have been scared, right? I am sorry for shouting at you, baby. I didn’t mean to." ,he sighed against your hair. "I just feel so stressed lately with all the things I have to do and I simply let out my mood on you. I am sorry for that."
With that he leaned back and kissed your forehead in an apologetic manner.
You smiled at him. “Don’t apologize. It’s okay, really. I suspected that it must be due to all the pressure on you.”
"Stop being so sweet, I can’t!", Jiyong said jokingly, acting a little drama for you which caused you to giggle.
"You know what?", he began taking your hand, "We will make two hot cups of chocolate, grab some snacks and cuddle under a blanket until the thunder is gone. What do you say?"
"Sounds great!", you cheered sweetly and your boyfriend kissed you tenderly.
"Hm and if you still can’t sleep…I can do more than just holding you." , he whispered in your ear, causing you to blush and run away from him.
"Yah,", he chased after you laughing, "Come back here!"
And he caught you in the right moment. He caught you when a thunder was striking.
Day by day,
Thank you for the smile you send me from a place that is miles away,
Maybe I don’t own much, but,
Then again I own the world,
A world that I cannot touch,
But in which I understand every word,
Eventhough I still feel helpless in my little world,
Through you I discover,
What I missed on years ago,
Sometimes I wish it could have been sooner,
That my eyes could have seen long time before,
What I see now,
And can’t take my eyes off anymore -♥-
