This song has nothing to do with “You Are The One”, despite reusing the phrase in the chorus, and instead is for the Beijing Olympics! Having trouble figuring out if this was an official song or not – it wasn’t THE official song, but if it’s anything like any other major sporting event there’s a whole album’s worth of official songs.

I’ve kind of been in a writing rut lately, pushing myself forward due to “can’t give up on ANOTHER project” and also because I can see that songs I already have half-written posts in my head about are not that far off if I can just. get. there.!!! But here, as if to break my fall, is a song with PROBLEMS! Continue reading

This has such an annoying toddler introduction that I was all ready to give this a 2.

🎺 Dan-da-dannnnn! 🎺 It’s the most successful (but not the last) Super Junior subunit, Super Junior-M! SJ-M (M for Mandarin) was introduced in order to get those tasty, tasty Chinese fan-dollars (er, fan-yuan).

Neither of whom, you may note, was in the original 12 or original 13 Super Junior members. DRAMA ENSUED.
