ccooony: With no guests, this week’s episode focuses on the seven Running Man members and the concept is that they are all aliens from another planet that has landed on Earth and their goal is to try to return home. Each of the members were given their own alien look and shiny silver matching outfits. Jae Suk was given a grasshopper type look, Suk Jin was given a Shrek type look, Jong Kook was given a look similar to Legolas from Lord of the Rings, Kwang Soo was given a egg shaped head, Ji Hyo was given purple hair, Gary was given a black wig and thick eyebrows, and Haha was given the half shaved head hairstyle. As they all gathered at the R flag, they couldn’t help but laugh at each other’s costumes.
For their first mission, each of the seven members would start out at a different R flag point located inside a huge open field. Their mission was to work together and collect large puzzle pieces and assemble the puzzle together within the time limit of three minutes. Each of the members would have to retrieve two pieces and then bring them to the designated meeting spot to be put together. For their first attempt, although there was a minor setback with Suk Jin having initially taken the wrong path out in the field, they were really close to completion but were one piece too late before time ran out. However, they were able to tell that the puzzle was of a picture of a screw inside of a six sided star on a white background. During their second attempt, even though Ji Hyo was having trouble locating her second puzzle piece initially, she was able to find it and all of the members were able to work together and get their mission done. The picture on the puzzle was their first hint in their quest to return home. Continue reading →

ccooony: YG Entertainment’s newest unit group consisting of soloist Lee Hi and Akdong Musician’s Suhyun just released their first song featuring Bobby from YG Entertainment’s upcoming boy group iKON. The storyline for the music video is that Bobby has just moved next door to Lee Hi and Suhyun and they immediately take a liking to him. The two of them follow him around and keep watch over him and he catches them doing so from time to time. Eventually the two of them separately receive a text from him to meet up at an amusement park and are surprised to see each other there. Both Lee Hi and Suhyun come together when they see that Bobby was there with another girl who appears to be his girlfriend. They follow Bobby and the girl around and try to sabotage their date, but in the end they just end up being upset over seeing the two of them together.
The lyrics to the song itself talk about girl who likes a boy and says that she wants to be together with him. She says that she is different from all the other girls and can’t be compared to them. Both Lee Hi and Suhyun’s voices work together well and Bobby’s style of rapping fits in with the rest of the song. It’s cool to see Lee Hi having the opportunity to work in a group and for Suhyun to showcase another style outside of Akdong Musician. The song is really pleasing to the ears and the music video itself is fun and playful. Overall, I think that this unit group is off to a great start and I can’t wait to hear more from them!

ccooony: Super Junior M’s Zhoumi is following in the footsteps of his fellow member Henry in being able to to release his own mini album and be a solo artist. His title track “Rewind” is said to be an R&B track about wanting to go back to a time before a break up, hence rewind. Both Chanyeol and Tao are featured as rappers in Zhoumi’s Korean and Chinese versions of the song respectively. It was fitting for many of the scenes in the music video to move backwards instead of forwards since the concept itself is about rewinding back.
