Epik High was part of my first time experience of Korean music. It was a magical moment. The deep lyrics mixed with the catchy beats immediately caught my attention and I fell in love for the first time. So, when I learned that Epik High had to take a 2 year hiatus due to DJ Tukutz’s mandatory military service, I was literally on the verge of crying.

Epik High produces great music with lyrics that go beyond the “I love you” or “let’s dance at the club” generality. They rap about what’s really going on in life and even involve controversial topics in their lyrics like religion and the government. There’s also a poetic quality to the music and with no Tukutz behind the scenes the music would not feel the same. I feel that Epik High would not be Epik High without its DJ like how many of you may feel that 2PM is not complete without their leader Jaebum. They’ve been releasing music together since 2003 and the sudden announcement of Tukutz’s enrollment was a shock.

Also, he barely got married to his first love a couple of days before he left for the military! What a bittersweet wedding.


The 12 Days of Christmas Special: This blog post is just one wish off the Official Ningin Christmas Wish List. Stay tuned everyday until Christmas for more wishes!

For the story Christmas Wish No. 2: For my Asian mom to stop hitting me with brooms: I could definitely relate. My mom mainly used slippers though. But every once in a while, she’d go with a hanger. That one would hurt. =\


^ LOL, that song…

Christmas Wish No.10: For weird people to stop oogling me at Vietnamese Coffee Shops: I hope they won’t stare at you either.
^
yeh...I hope this wish comes true…


Christmas Wish No. 5: For Epik High’s DJ Tukutz to return from the army: This is sad but it isn’t like he won’t come back.

Christmas Wish No. 6: A surplus of sexy, hot Asian male celebrities under the mistletoe: Yes and Rain wearing shorts doing his workout in the beginning of Ninja Assassin under the mistletoe would be just fine. :D

Christmas Wish. No 7: A life-sized Gundam figure: I would like to at least see this in person.

Christmas Wish No. 8: For Girls’ Generation to be my girlfriend(s): Well at least you would be feeding them more than 900 calories a day unlike SM.

Christmas Wish No. 9: For Three Rivers to Come Back to TV: If it did, Daniel would be all that I would see so I agree with you Laren.

Christmas Wish No.10: For weird people to stop oogling me at Vietnamese Coffee Shops: I hope they won’t stare at you either.

Christmas Wish No. 11: A scandal free 2010 for Korean Entertainment: This is what happens when a society such as Korea is innocent but conservative. Now I see why artists like Lady Gaga are big in Korea.

Christmas Wish No.12: A library full of manga: I definitely agree with this! smile
