안녕하세요 여러분!!!! ~ 🙂

This video up there ⇧⇧⇧ this video gave me happy feels I am not kidding you. It has Korean subtitles, and I assumed that Korean subtitles would just be better than English (because I don’t need to practice my native language …) but I could kill two birds with one stone.

One video : Got the Japanese words popping up variety-esque and Korean subtitles too. I get to see the Korean word and Japanese word, eg. 맛있어 & おい is the same! 🙂

So its pretty awesome, and also a plus like I mentioned I get to study Korean too, and surprisingly I needed to look up very little just some words I had never even seen in my life, such as 흰자위 (the white of the eye) when talking about how it wasn’t visible in an old picture of Aiba as a child ^^

Also, mind-blown, how the hell do they get cucumbers to grow like that? ((((;゜Д゜))) Cucumbers in heart and star shapes? Do they have other shapes? Hiragana shaped? (okay now I am being stupid haha) but I literally had the same face as the kid for real, I was like its a star? I have just seen the round ones….Japan takes tops on creativity

I mean seriously, I am not joking I am very very shocked at those cucumbers, where can I get some? (⌒▽⌒)And what other shapes do they have? This is shocking please don’t be alarmed I am not mad at all, just really its a flipping heart and star shaped cucumber 🙂 🙂 🙂

Eh ~ but from that I learnt a lot 🙂 wish there was more Korean subbed Arashi programs (in HQ) I guess I just have to keep hunting for it online (the variety shows) because they are fun to watch honestly. The channel I found this video on seems like the person is a massive (and I mean MASSIVE) fan of 아시다 마나 – seems she acted in a drama that made her popular. I will watch that drama (ofc) and she is adorable, with the cutest voice everrrrrr!!!!

So her drama is on my watch list 🙂 ….like so many things.

일본의 상용한자 연습 :

Read somewhere that Japanese take Kanji as an art form and they will know when you cheat eg. just writing it all untidy and not following the stroke order which will make it look all funky and wrong, not sure if this is true but doesn’t matter, right? Either way I printed two sheets, that over the Kanji taught in Genki Lesson 3 & 4 and I am practicing writing them out, still looks funky and hella ugly but I’m trying to make it pretty, so I can write Kanji swift and pretty, although I won’t focus on it because its essentially not what matters most at this point obviously.

Just a personal thing, I want pretty Kanji (like someone on instagram I saw them with their beautiful kanji skills)

So practice. practice. practice!! ^^
And I have to review the new Kanji and other vocabulary I learnt using songs I like.

MUSICPV.JP

If you want to watch Japanese PV/MV just head over to MusicPV.Jp – in this case YouTube is a total waste of time, but on this site? You can find live stages and more +++ amazing +++ 

Japanese PV’s are seriously difficult to find as it is, and when you look for a high quality video on YouTube its near impossible. So I discovered 🙁

Well maybe not for AKB48 and more popular groups outside of Japan but for its near impossible. I really wanted to see all the videos, like PV and Live stages and I couldn’t find any which was seriously upsetting, because when I like a group/artist I like to binge watch all videos and listen to all albums so I know if its going to work between us! (★^O^★) and also on YouTube its hard to find other music you like using those stupid “Recommendation” things on the side because none of it makes much sense, right?

My problem exactly. So I decided “You know what, ditch YouTube and look elsewhere” because to begin with I didn’t know what Arashi songs had a PV and which didn’t. They have 15years of discography so the list is mighty long. For real. It took me about 30 minutes to read through it ^^

Wikipedia was not really as helpful as with when I first got into 씨엔블루 and 소녀시대 – so next step I remembered a long time ago visiting a site called JpopAsia.com  and I figured that its Jpop right, so they should have something I can work with, wasn’t sure what, but I knew it would be something.

I was right, a full list of all their releases from 1999 (I was 4 years old when they debuted haha, makes it seem so long and it was also one year exactly to the date before my sister was born) so looking through their songs and picking which albums to listen to was fun, and watching all their PV’s starting with the newest “Sakura” ~ all fun and games till you get to a PV that isn’t available 🙁 🙁

And as dramatic as it sounds I needed to see that PV!!! After hearing the mp3 for 「P・A・R・A・D・O・X」 I actually wanted to know what  the PV looked like, I had my own idea of what it looked like and it was going to work on my mind for hours if I didn’t find it haha. So I hunted for anything I could find, I did land on YouTube but it wasn’t what I thought it was, it was some random fan-made video, nothing official. Then a little more digging and voila ~ I found PV heaven @ MusicPV.Jp

And I have no added this baby to my bookmarks and its my second homepage! I moved over drama news for this! That’s how good it is. I thought I’d share where to get some Japanese PV and stuff. If you are like me, then music is seriously an essential part of your learning, and you will need to find some asap or you will have nothing to listen to. So if you need some music ideas i HIGHLY recommend going to this site and either watching the ones you wanted to see but could never find or just picking the ones in the top lists and listening who know what you might find, I know I found a few I like ❤

In case you are wondering (why would you? haha) but I am now a die-hard Arashi (嵐)fan! By two biases are Matsumoto Jun and Kazunari Ninomiya ~ of course! ヽ(愛´∀`愛)ノ  

xoxo.

Have a good day ~
