And I thought I got my ballad fix for Runaway sorted when I wrote the review for it, but boy did I get that wrong!

I really love this soulful song by Jea from the Brown Eyed Girls.


This proves the power of a good song, it doesn’t matter who sings it, even if it’s sung by a non-singer it can still move you if done right.  I knew the song is sad but this version nearly brought me to tears, or was it because I listened to the song whilst watching scenes from episode 17 (the saddest episode so far) from Secret garden?  That could be half the reason, the other half being that I read the lyrics properly this time.

That man is Hyun Bin’s rendition and alternate version of That woman sung by Baek Ji Young.  His singing doesn’t equal to Baek Ji Young’s but it’s quite good for a non professional.


Runaway: Plan B


Bi / Rain as Ji Woo
Lee Na Young as Jin Yi / Jini K.
Lee Jung Jin as Chief Detective Do Soo
Yoon Jin Seo as Detective Yoon So Ran
Daniel Henney as Kai

I didn’t plan on watching Runaway at first, thinking it couldn’t possibly be that good if the ratings are going downhill every week, and the earlier hype put me off a little.  I’ve only ever seen one other Rain drama (Full House, in case you’re wondering which one) and despite its popularity and ability to keep me interested enough to carry on watching to the end it didn’t wow me away.

Then a lull came in my drama watching schedule and I thought to myself why not, it would make a change to watch an action drama.

One of my all time favourite Anita Mui songs from the Hong Kong film A better tomorrow III.

Time has made me forget what the A better tomorrow trilogy was all about and though I remember this song I didn’t remember it being from a particular film until recently. Though it’s sad to think I’ve lost a part of my memories, but it can’t be compared to the sadness of realising that this was the last song Anita sung at her last concert (Anita Classic Moment Live, 2003) before she passed away in December 2003.

I don’t think I would ever forget Anita Mui, the defiant singer, the first Chinese female singer to explore outside the boundaries of ‘acceptable’ Cantopop, ignoring the authorities, being compared to Madonna (although I would heavily debate this comparison) and whose many songs I have fond memories of screeching together with my younger sisters as we grew up.

I only started to watch Unubore Deka (Conceited Detective) because I was in the mood for one of Nagase Tomoya’s zany comedies but I ended up watching the whole series because I wanted to listen to Nakashima Mika’s song in each episode. I’m such a sucker for haunting ballads.

Tudou videos tends to be painfully slow to stream, unless you have their accelerator TudouVa installed you might want to pause the video after it starts playing then wait for it to fully load before watching.  The full screen button do not work here, to view in full screen click on video to go to Tudou website and the full screen button will work there.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
