Staying up for 2 days just because...

School 2013.

Yep, a not-so-cool answer. Kalau misalnya saya begadang karena ngerjain tugas Prof Shin, belajar buat UTS, atau anything homework-related itu oke lah ya. But I've been doing that along this semester and midterm has just ended, so... I decided to give myself a break (though I still have tons of things to do). I ended up went to sleep at 5 am last Wednesday, and I didn't even go to sleep on Thursday. LOL.

I have been wanting to watch School 2013 ever since the news Lee Jongsuk going to star it along with Kim Woobin went online. Mind you, I was crazy about Kim Woobin after his bad-ass, cool appearance in A Gentleman's Dignity and his sudden mischievous, romantic appearance in To The Beautiful You. And cutie pie Lee Jongsuk just fueled up my desire. I did buy the DVD a few days after its final episode was broadcasted. However, due to my endless to-do-list and the fact that the first episode was quite boring and Woobin didn't appear in it yet, I stopped watching the first episode half way.

A few weeks before midterm, Lee Jongsuk and Kim Woobin appeared as guests in Running Man episode 138 and their appearance literally caused chaos among my friends. The episode was funny, indeed, but the most important thing is Woobin and Jongsuk's interaction was too cute to the point you craved for it. Many of my friends downloaded all the episodes and watched in marathon. I was tempted to do so as well, but I braced myself since midterm was right in front of our eyes and there were too many things to do while there were no time left. So I think it's understandable if I decided to jump into the world of fangirling right after the last exam ended :D

In short, this drama is about Go Namsoon (played by Lee Jongsuk), who was once a top fighter and school gang leader, living his life as a student of class 2-2 in Seungri High School. He was picked to be president of the class and things were complicated for him ever since. There's his homeroom teacher, Jung Jaein (Jang Nara) who always get into trouble because of her students she loves so much; Kang Sechan (Choi Daniel), a popular private lessons tutor in Gangnam who had to be class 2-2 homeroom teacher together with Jung Jaein; Song Hakyung (Park Seyoung), his very smart vice president who studies very hard in order to go to S University; and the most important one, Park Heungsoo (Kim Woobin). Heungsoo was Namsoon's bestest friend back then, but Namsoon ran away after he accidentally made Heungsoo lost his ability to play soccer in a fight to let Heungsoo go from their gang, so Heungsoo loathed him ever since, while Namsoon could never forgive himself. There's also Oh Jongho and his two underlings who created many problems for the four main characters (Jung Jaein, Kang Sechan, Go Namsoon, Park Heungsoo).

This drama is very good to watch especially if you want to know more about the condition of high schools in South Korea. Things happened in the drama happened in real life as well. And you don't have to worry about being sick of lovey dovey scenes in most of Korean dramas--this drama has no love line (and I hate this fact the most). However, this drama contains many cussing, swearing, and fighting scenes. I had to remind myself to stop repeating 'aish' and 'saekki'--which were said in almost all scenes.

The point of this post is not about the drama, but about why I sacrificed my beautiful sleeping time to watch this not-so-happy drama. So, why?

Well, because of this.

These two guys, especially the one holding the ramyeon bowl, is just irresitible.

Jooyoung left Realcollabo

I was enjoying myself, browsing through Twitter and all when suddenly Jooyoung tweeted this.

trans: Next direction together with album, I am thinking about it very quickly. Firstly, I will appear on @sickboimusic's song as featuring, produce by @jacey714

Automatically, I replied to it with quote and add "완전 기대 (heart)" since I didn't know what 방향성 means at first. But I realize something was wrong as I scrolled down my timeline. That tweet turned out to be part of his serial tweets.

Actually, he has indicated from his first tweet (of the serial tweets) that there'll be some not-so-good news.

trans: Everyone, I have something to say.

And then this one.

trans: Are you all listening? Ehem.

This one is his announcement.

trans: I left Realcollabo, which is like hometown for me. I was going to talk about this when my next album is out, but I end up telling you earlier like this. I developed so much in this group named Realcollabo. This is a decision for my next leap. I don't have anything to say anymore..

Ack. This news shocked me so much, really. I admit I'm not a fan of other Realcollabo's artists and I'm not Jooyoung's die hard fan either. I admit I had once thought that something is wrong with Realcollabo and Jooyoung (because he didn't release anything after 그대와 같아 at late 2010 for a long time, before finally he released From Me to You last year. But he still hasn't made an 'official debut' like, let's say, Baek Seunghoon). However, I thought that everything goes well since Jooyoung had a concert with Siaena few months ago at Hongdae V Hall.

His next tweet is the one that I saw first (which I stupidly replied too enthusiastically -____-). This tweet is his last tweet for tonight.

trans: And I am sorry.

I don't know what to feel. I mean, I was fangirling over Jung Dongha's performances in Immortal Songs 2 (to the point that I forgot I have speech exam tomorrow and the fact that K.Will released his Love Blossom MV today) and suddenly... Joo brought this kind of news. Oh, Joo. You know I've been waiting for so long for your albums (and live performance on music programs, oh). However, I am suspicious he had appeared on KBS1 these days on some program, but I can't say anything since I really have no idea about the truth. But I found these in his recent twitpic.

The first picture was from his 그대와 같아 photo shoot, I think, since his outfit is the same. The second and the third were posted in his Instagram before. Yeah, I don't like his current hairstyle >,<

Oh, Joo... I don't know what to say to you. If anything, I just want you to live your life happily and to be able to do the music you love. You don't have to have a flashy career, which may earn you loss of privacy and all. It will be enough if you are able to share the music you love with the people who love you and your music.

Well, I know he may never read this but I just can't help to say those words.^^
And if anything, may I remind you that Joo did reply to my tweet twice (before he deleted his first reply)? LOL.

Live happily, Jooyoung!

Take out with full credits.
