Being a fan of BIGBANG has kinda opened a door for me to know more about Korean musicians. They actually have richer music than the kind of bubblegum K-Pop most of us know!
I am recently listening to a trio called Epik High with frontman named Daniel Armand Lee (or best known as TABLO) who had lived in Canada for several years when he was young and had graduated from Stanford with master degree in English Literature and Creative Writing *,*
Mithra Jin, one of the rapper in the group was originally a poet and he did poetry readings in the past. *o ma gah!!!
While the DJ, Tukutz, used to play live events around Boston & New York City area.
Now you don’t have to wonder why their lyrics and music have officially stolen my only heart, that I am dedicating this week’s post to them 😀
From left to right: Mithra Jin (rapper), Tablo (rapper), Tukutz (DJ)
This is one of my favorite songs out of the first album I’ve heard of them:
Tablo has also released a solo album and the lyrics to this song have officially killed me:
Nowadays, Epik High has created music that is more lively than gloomy, though, but I still love it ❤ ❤
TABLO JUST RETWEETED THIS DRAWIIIIIIIIIIIINGNGNGNGNG!!!!!!!
By the way, if you’re wondering:
I DO have 2 twitter accounts. Beside my primary @rarambol account, that @epikluna account is mine, too. I made it for just fangirling K-pop things. Ha! So I posted this drawing to twitpic via @epikluna account. My sister retweeted it. And then it’s late night already. I wrote on my twitter “Okay tomorrow is Monday, I gotta go to sleep. Anyeong!”
I pulled my blanket.
Then my phone vibrated. It’s my sister Rya. (She’s at my parents’s house, I’m at my boarding house).
Her: “–SISTERRR!!!!! YOU… YOU… YOU GOTTA SEE TWITTER!!! TABLO… TABLO… REPLIED YOUUU!!!”
I was, like, whatthefuck???????????
Her: “YOU GOTTA SEE YOU GOTTA SEE YOU GOTTA SEE OKAY THANKS BYE!”
Beep… beep… beep…
So I checked Twitter from my phone.
And there it was!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And here I am not going to sleep like I promised myself, and updating this blog instead!!
