SOO BAA BAA DOO BAAAA LAAA FAAA. Eternal kisses. Don’t ever leeeavee my siiiiIIIIde. You are so preeetyyyyy!
Or something like that. I don’t know. I don’t watch Dramas. Martina does. I don’t really know what drama songs are like, so Martina made the song for it, while I just re-enacted the scenes that I saw when Martina would burst out laughing, then she’s run into the room crying from laughter and would demand I follow her to the computer so she could show me what’s so funny. Ah: cheesy Korean Drama kiss scenes. I wonder: do Korean audiences find those kiss scenes as ridiculous as we do? You know, I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen Korean people kiss, like, ever. Goodbye kisses or anything. I’ve seen no PDA. Wait: that’s a lie. Last week, we were walking through Hongdae on Saturday night and we saw a cute coffee shop on some side street. It was in the basement of the building, but it had a window so you could see the people inside. It was empty except for one couple. The girl had her back against the wall she was sitting close to, while the guy had his face nuzzled in her chest, and he would lift his face up to try to kiss her but she wouldn’t kiss back. We stood there, staring at them for a couple of minutes, by the window, until the girl looked up, saw us, and in shocked pushed the guy away. We waved to her and walked away. Point of the story is this: Korean drama kisses are…umm, I don’t know how that relates to the story I told. I just thought it was funny.
Anyhow, the point of this video isn’t supposed to be bad dramas or animes or whatnot. The point is that Cherry Blossom Season is almost all finished. We wanted to play around in some of the Cherry Blossoms before the wind and rain blew and washed them all away. When they’re in full bloom, they’re utterly gorgeous, and make you feel like Spring is in full session. But they’re so quick to fly away. While we were filming this, we saw the gusts of wind taking the blossoms off of their branches, and we thought we were lucky to be there now, because they’d be gone in a day or so. Luckily, we still have some Cherry Blossoms around now, but not as many. Not as many. Why am I talking about this like this is life and death, and I’m mentioning a friend that lost his life or something? “Soon, young chap, you’ll remember the face of the soldier you called your daddy.” What does that even mean? Hell: I’m so bad at writing this kind of stuff. I should stick to Korean Drama Song lyrics.
So, yeah! That’s it for this week’s WANK. We got goofy, and then this blog post got weird. We’ve got a bunch of bloopers again for this week, as always. Isn’t it obvious? Check em out if you feel like some more lola:
