Happy Birthday SungMin!!

SungMin on ‘Sukira’: Last week I… to be more accurate, it was a week before this… received birthday wishes. Kang Sora hyungsu-nim also gave me birthday wishes. The cake, LeeTeuk-sshi very forcefully smashed into my face. I was very touched then so I’m playing this song for everyone. Sung Shi Kyung’s ‘You Touched My Heart’. **

I truly feel sorry for the cake. That the cake looks put-together and not store-bought makes me feel even more sorry for it. Upside to it was that the amount of ‘effort’ that Teukie exerted in ‘giving’ Min his cake was apparently big enough such that all those nearby got to ‘share’ Min’s cake.

Teuk ah, whatever did the cake do to deserve this? Min was the one that threw your dirty laundry out for airing, not the cake. The cake had no part to play with your bum getting grilled! The cake was innocent!

Oh wait. Maybe that’s why the cake ended up that way…

No matter. Min still looks happy with his face awash in cake so…

Happy (Belated) Birthday SungMin!! ♥

Phew! Lucky!

I think it fortuitous that I decided to screencap the ‘Sukira’ iPhone app last night because one of the apps on my phone that required updating today was the ‘Sukira’ app and the graphics have changed to this:

The MinWook 'Sukira' App The MinWook 'Sukira' App


She tuned in?

That is what I think at least because during the time that EunTeuk were making their final appearance on ‘Sukira’ as the show’s main hosts, this tweet appeared:

Translation : Thank you! Love you! [I am] Happy

If my guess is spot on and she was really referring to ‘Sukira’ then I am happy for 1 and 2 that they have yet another person in the stable who appreciates their time on the show.

Teukie, please continue being nice to Sora!

HyukJae ah, stop being such a monkey at her!

♥ Lee HyukJae! ♥ Park JungSu! ♥ We love you!! ♥

The End (And) of an Era

The night of 4 December 2011 is a sad one because tonight marks the first time that I got to watch TVXQ ‘live’ but it was a shrunken 2 out of 5. It is doubly sad that tonight is also the last time that my 1 and 2 are hosting ‘Sukira’.

5 years and 3 months. That is how long it has been. To be honest, somewhere at the back of all of our heads, we knew that it was only a matter of time before HyukJae and Teukie had to pass the hosting baton on to someone else mainly because of mandatory military service. But when the news broke, it was still heartbreaking.

5 years and 3 months.

I missed tuning into a ‘live’ stream of their final broadcast tonight because of TVXQ and was planning on grabbing a recording when I got home. But after learning off RyeoWook’s tweet that HyukJae cried, I don’t think I will do that. Not so soon anyway. I don’t think I will be able to bear seeing/hearing HyukJae cry over leaving ‘Sukira’.

5 years and 3 months.

Like HyukJae, I am finding this whole thing very surreal. It is a little hard to believe that the next time I tune in or even read about ‘Sukira’, both he and Teukie will not be the ones that I hear or see, and my head has yet to get around to the fact that this arrangement will be a permanent one.

5 years and 3 months.

SungMin and RyeoWook will be taking over fully from now and imo, they have an extremely large pair of shoes to fill. But I have faith that they will do just fine. As Teukie said, this is not an ‘end’ but ‘and’. I wish MinWook all the best and will continue to support ‘Sukira’. But for now, here are some screencaps of the ‘Sukira’ iPhone app while it still features EunTeuk in it.
