Me too! LOL JK :D
BTW, I also just listened to Shontelle’s original version of this song. But honestly, for me, I think I like James’ version better. Shontelle’s version is just too fast which I think is inappropriate to the message of the song. I think it missed that goal of making its listeners feel the song. It sounded like a happy song because of its tempo and it can make people really confused. Personally, I think that can only be done if the message of the song is about overcoming the impossible, but the message speaks differently—someone is very broken because the impossible happened.
James’ version is more passionate, more emotional, more broken, and more dedicated like he was really betrayed by someone he loves. His voice, while listening to it, seems hurt to the verge that he way have wanted to cry while singing it. I felt the message more with his version better than Shontelle’s.
1N2D vs. RM (February 23, 2014 episode)
1N2D season 3 episode 13
The “Ant Tour” started with the members undergoing blood tests and urine tests. They will reveal (maybe) what those are for in the next episode.
PD revealed that they will get to eat four famous food but only four members will get to eat those. They had a warm-up game wherein the winner would be rewarded a special dish (bowl) which the winner can use later in the game.
Warm-up game was getting balloons. The members have had enough of Junho’s betrayal and Joon Young’s good luck so they eliminated them first. Defconn won this game because of his large built, most probably. Defconn got the dish but while he was changing clothes, Joo Hyuk got it without Defconn knowing! Personally, Joo Hyuk is becoming more likeable nowadays.
Second game is they had to flip kimchi pancake from the pan. You know what I mean. Being a food blogger, Joon Young won this effortlessly. Next, they had to pick up jelly (I think) using chopsticks. Winner will get to eat with Joon Young but only up to a small amount of food. Tae Hyun and Joo Hyuk succeeded at this mission. Also, Joo Hyuk got chocolates from Seul Kee!
Next is the speed quiz with the locals! Surprisingly, Junho won this game with his 20-ish-year-old partner! But Joon Young’s fan got a backhug!
Then, they do a game for food. Joo Hyuk suggested the game. But Joon Young won.
They had a relay on the mudflat next. Joon Young, Joo Hyuk, and Defconn got in the finals. In the end, Defconn won.
Running Man ep186
RM186 is the much awaited Running Man comeback of the Ace of all guests: Jung Yong Hwa. This time, him and Jong Hyun both the rest of CNBLUE. So it’s Running Man vs. CNBLUE. They are divided into three teams to see who will be the faces of Seoul.
First game is some sort of a food relay. After a team finishes eating a dish, someone from that team picks a card. If the “Mission Success” card is picked, they can automatically go the next location already. But if the card picked is “Failed,” then they have to go to the next station, eat more food, pick another card. This will go on until they pick the “Mission Success” card. This is the funniest part in this episode because this is the first time in three years that the players don’t want to succeed.
Next, they went to the Namsan tower. Yellow team needs to take a selfie with ten other people and all their faces appearing in the frame. Red team had to play the cham game with 10 others. Blue team had to do a jumpshot with no feet should be on the ground (in the photo).
Next, they had to get letters to form a sentence.
Then, some intense game of Russian Roulette, and Titanic (with marbles).
Then an even bigger roulette. CNBLUE won and became the faces of Seoul.
For me 1N2D won this week. Mainly because RM failed big time. 186 is a very much anticipated episode since it’s Yonghwa’s comeback. Yonghwa is known for his great name tag ripping skills. But lo and behold, this episode showed no name tag ripping! I really feel that RM186 is such a very disappointing episode. Such a wasted episode. Kudos to 1N2D for giving good episodes.
1N2D vs. RM (February 16, 2014)
Sorry if I post this late. Been busy with school stuff lately. So yeah, I will keep it short and simple.
1N2D season 3 episode 12
This is continued from the very emotional, yet moving and fun episode 11. Base camp is on KBS.
The first challenge is still about revisiting Seoul’s past. This time, on the entertainment side. They relived the game show “Family Arcade” where in they were divided into two teams: Men team (Joo Hyuk, Junho, and Joon Young) and the Women team (Defconn, Jong Min, and Tae Hyun). They relived the fun games and in the end, the Men team won.
They also visited Yoo In Na as she was doing a live broadcast of her radio show. Boy, was she taken by surprise! But still, her professionalism conquered even though she was flustered at times. Tae Hyun sang his song, Defconn, sang a song, Junho sang a bit of his Zombie song, and In Na asked Joo Hyuk if he wanted to be a regular guest host.
Then, the sleeping bokbulbok. They picked names of food that has to be delivered. First three three people whose orders arrived first will sleep inside the director’s room while the last three will sleep in the tent in KBS’s rooftop. As the master of luck, Joon Young’s order arrived. Jong Min’s and Defconn’s orders also came.
Next, no morning angel. They wore traditional clothes and the morning mission was to find the appropriate hats for their outfits. Tae Hyun, Joo Hyuk and Joon Young found their hats first. I honestly really wanted Joo Hyuk to win this because he found the others’ hats and he didn’t even hide them. He wasn’t even familiar with the KBS building. He found his hat last. Good thing he won it. He deserved it.
So the three winners got to ride insde Won Pal the truck. Note: all of them didn’t remove their traditional clothes.
Running Man episode 185
RM185 is the much-awaited (for me) parody episode of one my favorite drama (right now) “You Who Came from the Stars”. Apparently, I’m not the only one who watch and love it because they do too!
First, Joseon era. They had to find the hairpin. HaHa found it first but Jong Kook eliminated him. Jae Suk and Jong Kook found the hairpin worn by the young Cheon Song Yi (Kim Hyun Soo). But as Jong Kook was trying to be a gentleman, Jae Suk eliminated him. Jae Suk got the hint.
Next: a much more modern era. Probably in the 40s. On or before that. It was a game of Panchiki and Jong Kook and Ji Hyo went head to head. Ji Hyo won it and she got the clue.
Finally: name tag ripping.
Mission: Find out if you are Do Min Joon. How? Find the script of the drama, re-enact it with Cheon Song Yi. Do Min Joon and Cheon Song Yi can win the gold if they ride the UFO together. But others can also win if they eliminate one of the two. But beware: Jae Kyung and his wicked ring is also here!
Do Min Joon: HaHa
Cheon Song Yi: Yoo Jae Suk
Lee Jae Kyung: Kim Jong Kook
Remember: those three were the people who found the hairpin. Jae Kyung managed to eliminate the alien but Cheon Song Yi still won!
I equally enjoyed both episodes. But since I am somehow biased because of the team, I’d choose Running Man for last week. 1N2D also had a good episode. They give huge laughs. But I love RM186 because all of them where in character.
I never thought that Cha Tae Hyun is good at singing :)
Lorien Legacies Book 5: The Revenge of Seven
"The worst was supposed to be over. We were reunited after a decade apart. We were discovering the truth about our past. We were training and getting stronger every day. We were even happy… .
We never imagined the Mogadorians could turn one of our own against us. We were fools for trusting Five. And now Eight is lost forever. I would do anything to bring him back, but that’s impossible. Instead, I will do whatever it takes to destroy every last one of them.
I’ve spent my entire life hiding from them, and they’ve stolen everything away from me. But that stops now. We’re going to take the battle to them. We have a new ally who knows their weaknesses. And I finally have the power to fight back.
They caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. Number Three in Kenya. And Number Eight in Florida. They killed them all.
I am Number Seven.
I will make them pay.”
-Why should August be so far? I’m now excited!
This is creepy as hell. :D
We’re also waiting for that episode. :D but now that he’s mentioned it, they do have some similarities. Could this be a sign?
Why do I feel that we’ll see this kind of scene again in the Australia episode? :D
