Song Of The Week – “For the gone” by CODE KNUST, CHOI JUNG HOON & Simon Dominic

Hello, I hope you all are having a great week. I finally have some time to spare, and I’m happy😊 because I miss working on my blog😢.

As you can tell from this post’s title, my recommended song for this week is “For the gone”. It is a collaborative track from ELLE Korea, and CODE KNUST + the music video was written and directed by actor Park Jung MinCHOI JUNG HOON of JANNABI and Simon Dominic also lent their voices to this project, while Lee Je HoonLee Sung Kyung and Park Jung Min starred in the cinematic music video.

“For the gone” marked my first time hearing anything from CHOI JUNG HOON or his indie rock band – JANNABI. His vocal tone gives off a very homely vibe. People sometimes say that a singer’s voice feels like a warm hug, and that’s precisely what CHOI JUNG HOON’s singing does for me. I also love the instrumental for this song, most especially the guitar & keyboard sections. It’s such a chill and beautiful energy, so kudos to CODE KNUST for the sweet production👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼. Another plus to this project is the captivating rap verse served by Simon Dominic. I truly enjoyed his flow on this lovely slow-tempo track.

Concerning the lyrics, I believe it’s generally about longing for a past time and the feelings that made you feel great then. It can also relate to how everyone in the world misses their everyday lives before COVID-19 happened. Now, if any of the features I complimented above rocks your boat, then this song for you😊. Also, feel free to check out the live performance at the Melon Music Awards –

My Pictorial|Poster Faves: The Older, The Better🥰

If you’re an older Asian drama fan or just a well-versed watcher, then you probably have certain older actors (i.e. 30+ years) that continuously amaze you with their acting skills and beauty!!!. Yes, that’s the focus of this post. I will be sharing pictures of some of my favourite older Korean actors. Also, I’m discussing how I discovered them + some recommendations of their dramas/films. To keep this post brief, I will create a female/Chinese version later.

(Please Note: none of these images are mine. I got them from official magazine websites and social media sites.)

Lee Joon-gi was born on April 17th, 1982, making him 38 years old. He recently starred in ‘Flower of Evil’, and he is one actor with a very secure place in my heart. When I dived into the Korean drama scene, Lee Joon-gi was the first older actor that caught my eye. It all started with ‘Iljimae’ (2008) and then every other drama/movie from him because I fell in love with his acting style, charisma and beauty. So here are some recent photos of the actor from Allure Korea.

Lee Dong Wook, who recently starred in ‘Tale of the Nine-Tailed’, was born on November 6th, 1981, making the actor 39 years old. He sure is ageing like fine wine, both physically and career-wise. I first saw Lee Dong Wook in ‘Blade Man’ (2014), and I’ve found him to be a great actor after watching his other movies/dramas. Hence he is my second feature with recent shots from GQ Korea.

Lee Je-hoon is more of a film actor. Hence, I haven’t had the time to dive into his works because that would require some days of sitting through different stories. For some reason, dramas are much easier for me to watch😆. All the same, after watching ‘Signal’ (2016), I have been obsessed with him. He’s such an engaging actor that always brings distinction and life to his character. Lee Je-hoon was born on July 4th, 1984 (36 years old). Here are some recent shots of the actor from W Korea.

Rain (Jung Ji Hoon) was born on June 25th, 1982, making him 38 years old. Most people knew him as a singer, but I discovered him as an actor through the 2014 drama – ‘My Lovely Girl’. Honestly, that drama did not do much for me, which affected my perception of Rain’s acting skills. Thankfully I watched ‘Please Come Back, Mister’ (2016) and then began to notice his strengths as an actor. Plus, we all have to admit that the man is fine!!!! Hence why he is my last feature on this post with some photos from GQ Korea.
