Shinee…Onew

Lee Jinki Lee Jinki, Shinee’s Onew, has announced he will begin his enlistment for mandatory duty in South Korean military on December 10, 2018. I am beside myself with sadness.  I am not sure what will happen to Shinee with the unreturnable loss of Jonghyun -and now Onew’s enlistment. By the time they release him from duty it will be time for Minho and Key to join.  Then once they‘re released, Taemin will join.  Will Shinee heal from this?  Only time will tell, but I fear the worst even as I hope for the best. For a part, I’m not worried about Taemin, Minho and Key.  Taemin has a strong soloist career.  Key has produced his first release as a soloist and Minho has developed a career in acting.  But, what about Onew? Onew began his acting career, but it was cut short when he was wrongfully arrested.  He’s had a few duets that did well, but a solo career is something he hasn’t shot for.  He released the song, In Your Eyes, from the …

irumeur…Where Have I Been?

Our basement was ruined by ground water and insurance refused to help cover damage.  We’ve spent months rebuilding and my office only just got put back together.  It’s been a rough few months and there is still much work to be done, without enough hours. I have much to write about but for now I will remain in hiatus.  I’m struggling with the absence of Onew and now the death of our beloved, Kim Jonghyun.  Shinee is my happy place. Depressed?  Yes… Since Onew disappeared on August 12, 2017 along with the fear of losing Shinee in my life had been difficult.  If you read my blog you know I love every member of the band.  Minho and Onew are my 1st’s, but I love each of them. I was focused on fighting for the return of our Onew as, I believe many Shawols were.  We didn’t see the many signs our Jonghyunnie left us.  I often wonder if he sat in that lonely apartment wondering if we would guess in time.  We didn’t. His …

Foreign Drama – Descendants of the Sun

Descendants of the Sun 16 episodes Drama Fever (hulu) 2016 Ok, there is no way I can begin talking about this drama with out first mentioning my awesome Onew.  They gave him an easy role because the Onew on screen is pretty much just who he is naturally.  Onew is goofy, shy and pretty quiet.  He can get emotional as well.  Even though he was perfect for the character they gave him, and he did an awesome job -I hope the next drama he does they challenge him.  After seeing how he did in charades at the Chicago Fanmeet I know that there is much more to Onew’s talent then just being himself.  Of course, next time I hope there is a kiss. Song Joong Ki (8 movies including Werewolf Boy & 9 drama’s.  This is his first drama since coming back from military duty) -great actor.  I was worried because there wasn’t a great kiss scene.  Maybe Joong Ki can’t do a kiss scene, and if he doesn’t will the story have as much impact …

Korean Drama -To The Beautiful You

My day wouldn’t be complete without sharing my first drama -and my first sighting of Choi Min Ho.  To The Beautiful You is a fun drama, showing love as all young people should experience.  Pure, and perfect!  It should have been named To The Beautiful Min Ho! Choi Min Ho is the perfect man, artist and performer -all role up into -him!  Come on, you can’t know me without knowing I think he is perfect. I can’t leave out Sulli or Lee Hyun Woo.  They both helped to bring this drama to life.  Hyun Woo is a child actor that knows his way around any character -and delights his audience with his performances.  Sulli is a member of the Korean girl band f(x). The song in this piece is by Sunny and f(Luna), called It’s Me.  I have this one, but my favorite is by Onew -In Your Eyes. It’s a bit shaky at first but it gets better.  Onew is true to his nature and forgets some of the words, but his fans don’t …

Foreign Music

Shinee If you have not yet given yourself over to the pleasure of voice, dance, and beauty of a Shinee World -it is time! Five talented men, will win you over as their notes blend and seduce. Synchronized movements tantalizing your temptations are largely responsible for their worldwide acclaim. Korean men, with their thick lush hair, big eyes, and strong jaw lines are some of the most beautiful men gracing our world.  My Hangul is still weak, but I understand their words, as they flow inside me with meaning. It is no secret among my friends and family that I am completely taken by these boys.  Nor, is it a secret that I took a bus to NYC, just to see Choi Min Ho (which failed). Listening to Onew’s voice, Jonghyun’s electrifying vocals, Key’s pure talent, Taemin’s little boy charm, and the pure raw physical talent of Min Ho will mesmerize you, leaving you hungering for more.
