C.N Blue

I've haven't been into Korean music or dramas until this year and it's quite interesting since many Asians are and there sure is a reason why. They are actually really good. I use to think the language Korean sounded really weird and that all the Korean guys' voices are REALLY deep but they can sound so dreamy~~
I've watched Full House when I was young and that was good but I never got captivated. Many people liked Flowers Before Boys and I have it on DVD but in Mandarin which I don't fully understand so maybe that's why I don't really like that drama. I didn't think they were that good-looking either and I still don't. 

I got introduced into watching "Heartstrings" by my long time friend and now I'm hooked... not good.

Synopsis:Lee Shin is a university student majoring in modern music. He is also the vocalist and guitarist of the band “The Stupid.” Shin is known for his good looks and strong passion for music, but is cold. He initially likes Jung Yoon Soo, a dance professor at university, but this all changes when he meets Lee Kyu Won. 
Lee Kyu Won is  born into a prestigious family and is majoring in traditional Korean instruments. Kyu Won’s grandfather, Lee Dong Gun, is one of the top 3 traditional musicians of his age and his biggest wish is to see his granddaughter become a traditional music prodigy. Her friends are fans of “The Stupid” and so she was forced to go to the band’s concert with them. There she sees Lee Shin performing live.

Need to stop when school starts and after I can have a Korean dramas marathon ^_^ YAY! I really can't wait for year 12 to finish and I can do what ever I LIKE. 
Anyway, I remember when I first started listening to Hong Kong Music... and then Taiwanese Music.... and now Korean Music. I would guess Japanese Music will be next but I don't really like the Japanese language either... hmm, that was how I felt towards Korean. Maybe it will change, maybe not.  
I've listened to other boy bands too like BIG BANG, BEAST and F.T Island and they're good too but I seem to like C.N Blue more. Maybe because of the drama I have fallen for them. That's what happens, dramas tend to make normal guys seem hot. I might not think C.N Blue is so good if not because of the drama. But I have to say their English sounds really precise in their songs like LOVE Girl unlike F.T Island's Sunshine Girl.

Time for something beauty related. Recently I ran out of lip balm and so I went down to the local supermarket to buy a new one. Originally I was using Nivea Fruity Shine: Strawberry Flavour but for some unusual reason there was no Nivea brand lip balm, seeing this cute lip balm by Maybelline called Baby Lips I decided to try a different brand. I got the menthol one as I wanted a cool feeling on my lips. 

They're both as shiny but I have to say I'm more of a Nivea fan. Nivea gives a really smooth and soft feeling with two swipes whilst the Maybelline requires four or five times to give the same result. On the downside Nivea is too pigmented which I didn't like after a while because it's makes my lips naturally red and hard to apply other colours, however some might like this and therefore it is a positive. 

There are many other Nivea lip balms which are not as pigmented so I will give them a try after I have finished with this Maybelline one. The Nivea one is more expensive but it's worth every penny, if only there is a Nivea one which gives me that cool menthol feeling.

  1. nice swatch, have always wanted to try the baby lips but guess i prefer pigmented too =/

  2. i love CN Blue!! Their music is really different. The guy that's in Heartstrings was also in You're Beautiful. I really liked that drama, very cute ^_^

    The packaging on those lipbalms are so adorable!
