Recently, I stumbled upon SHINEE’S live performance video of “Everybody.” Watching this video reminded me once again that K-pop tracks shine brighter when paired with performances; and the fact that SHINEE is amazing! In fact, I like SHINEE, so I listened to their entire albums many times. And I know that there are many amazing B-side tracks that deserve more attention. So, let me talk about my three favorite SHINEE B-side tracks today. The first is “Savior,” a disco-based electronic track included in SHINEE’s 2015 album “Married To The Music.” The synth line in the chorus is very catchy, and the part that all the members say “wuuh~” in unison is really addictive.  The second song is called “SHIFT.” It's a retro UK garage track included in SHINEE’s 2016 album “1 of 1.” Many songwriters co-produced this song, but my gut tells me that LDN Noise, the English producer duo team known for “View” and “4 Walls,” probably contributed the most. According to these British lads’ YouTube video, they came up with the intro melodies after watching “Stranger Things.” (For those who may not know, “Stranger Things” is a popular TV show set in the 80s and the 90s. So, you get to listen to many retro themes filled with analog synth sounds.) Last but not least, “Heya” is my third choice! It’s a ballad sung by Jonghyun included in SHINEE’s 2008 debut album. It’s a sad breakup song contrasting with the cutesy lead title “Replay,” which shook up Korea when it came out. In this track, Jonghyun’s vocal skills stand out. (It’s a remake of the Spanish song “Y Si Fuera Ella,” which means ‘What if it were her’ in English.)  So, I guess these are the SHINEE tracks that I think many people sleep on. Besides these three, there are many other great songs from SHINEE’s albums. So, it’s worth exploring their albums even if you aren’t necessarily their fans. If you are interested, go and check out SHINEE’s music! https://theasiansculture.com/shinee-b-side-tracks-my-top-3-choices/

In 1999, He Qingkui wrote a short play for Zhao Benshan. After reading the play, Zhao Benshan was worried about who was suitable for performing it. He thought that it was obviously not suitable for Gao Xiumin, so finally, he had to ask Song Dandan. Zhao Benshan called Song Dandan but he didn't directly tell her that he wanted to perform on the Spring Festival English Show with her. He just told her that there was a good script that was worth seeing. After all, Song Dandan's partner was Huanghong at that time. Back then, Song Dandan faced a dilemma: it was also the time after Song Dandan's divorce with Yingda. She had to raise her kids while working. It was a tough time for her. The negative effects from her divorce with Yingda are not small and her career was also in a tepid state. Although every year she perform on the Spring Festival Evening Show with Huanghong, it didn't have an ideal effect. She also needed some changes. After seeing the script, Song Danda was tempted. The script was so nice, and it would be a pity if missed the chance. After weighing the pros and cons, Song Danda agreed to go to the Spring Festival Evening Show with Zhao Benshan to perform Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.. Nice script added excellent performer, it's difficult to perform badly. The cooperation of the two was really a hit and the program successfully won the first prize of language program that year, which also started the prelude of the two people's cooperation for many years. In 2006, during the performance of Xiao Cui Said things, Zhao Benshan made a serious mistake. He forgot his bag when he went up the stage. Fortunately, Song Dandan carefully found the mistake at the beginning when Zhao Benshan started to go up the stage. Song Dandan hurriedly winked at Zhao Benshan, because the props to be used in the sketch were in the bag, which was a book written by Song Dandan YueZi. Song Dandan quickly helped Zhao Benshan to block the camera, and Zhao Benshan took the bag at the

Last night I got a dream. In my dream my mom’s boss fired a lady who is pretty good and very hardworking in her job. And he asked his niece who is nearly my age to take the job. After this me and some of my cousins went to mon’s company to have a visit. We chatted a little bit and feel boring. So we walk out, the place became seaside. I was so excited, and went to swim with my dad. We had a boat which basically is a tub. Then it’s next day. I became more excited because I realized there’s a rising tide. But I soon found out our”boat” were missing because of this, and the water became muddy. I ran into a small house, the inside is much larger than it looks. Then I surprisingly found out it’s my grandpa’s. And there’re many elder people in my family. I chatted with them laughing while try to find something on the bookshelves. That’s when my alarm clock rings. In my culture, many believes there’s sign in dream probably means something. And there’s website to check what might happen according the sign in your dream. I don’t believe that much. Cause I used to have lots of dreams when I was a child, and every dream was an exciting and interesting adventure, and have nothing related to reality. I even thought about writing a book about my dreams. Sadly now reality is stepping into my ”dreamland”, most of time my dream just not as fun as I had in my childhood. Anyway, is there anything related to dreams in ur country? Or what’s the most interesting dream you ever had? I’m glad to know all about this. And if you could help me to correct my writing,I would be appreciated.
