More stuff for your summer!
Music: Dynamic Duo – 해변의/Beach Girl (Feat. JYP). This song is the epitome of summer. When I first heard it, I didn’t know what to make of it. It has a funky feeling to it, definitely. Still, it’s the kind of thing that you’re already digging by the second listen. One thing that sets this song apart is JYP; he is featured on this song. I don’t know if he had anything to do with the beat of the song, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that he had a hand in creating it. It’s so addicting! Also, it samples Wonder Girl’s “So Hot.” I don’t know. It’s just a fun song.
Reading: Aiya They Didn’t. Looking for a fallback English news source for Chinese entertainment? You might want to try Aiyatheydidnt. It’s similar to “Ohnotheydidnt/Oh No They Didn’t,” which is also on LiveJournal, except is for your C-entertainment needs. Even though it’s based off of one of the snarkiest gossip blogs on the internet, Aiyatheydidnt doesn’t quite make it to that level. Still, don’t expect nice play in the posts or comments. Regardless, it’s a pretty fun way to get updated on what’s going on with media in China, Taiwan, and so on.
Watch: Turtles Swim Faster than Expected. This Japanese movie is AH-mazing. It’s so very random that you will explode with laughter. I love watching movies that are both strange and poignant. I don’t know. PLUS, it stars Ueno Juri and Aoi Yu. FANTASTIC ACTRESSES! Here is a brief synopsis:
Suzume Katagura is an bored housewife, she spends her days doing chores and taking care of her husbands pet turtle. One day she sees an wanted ad for spies, hoping for some excitement she decides to give them a call.
HOW CAN YOU REFUSE SUCH A DESCRIPTION? It’s just as great as it sounds, actually. I might go watch it again right now.
