The Outsider is Back

Hooooomfgggggggggggg I'm supposed to be concentrating on doing 3 essays, along with the ever-evil math homework right now, but FUUUUUUUUUUUU OUTSIDER'S 3RD ALBUM WAS JUST RELEASED YESTERDAY AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MVAOISRJOIEWU832NJKFJSLD;AJNVAUIAYQWENMZCSFJASOIOIPAUWNFSAYTWAEFASM;FKJFKDASHDOIFJ;KFSH- *SPAZZING OUT AND FLAILING*

...oh yeeeahhh. You guys don't have a single clue who or what I'm talking about though.... :X


WELL THEN. HOW ABOUT I INTRODUCE YOU GUYS TO ONE OF THE FASTEST RAPPERS IN THE WORLD, AND ONE OF THE BEST IN KOREA? 8DDD



 

So, who the heck IS this "Outsider" I'm spazzing so much about? WELL ladies and ladies, Outsider is pretty much one of the VERY few quality artists left in the Korean music scene, who strikes fear into idol groups' hearts whenever they hear his rapid-fire rapping, and even puts other seasoned rappers in the scene to SHAME. And it's no joke or boast about him being one of the fastest rappers in the world and the fastest in Korea- he can rap at an astounding 17 syllables per second, but the Guiness Book of World Records wouldn't let him have his own rightful entry to himself because he raps in Korean, and not English. Trufax. And they call themselves the Book of "World" Records... How lame is that.... =___=;;


But anyway! He has decided to make his comeback this month in order to
grace the filthy, despicable, tone-deaf, idol group-dominated K-Pop world with his mind-blowing symphonies of sonic tongue-twisting rapping. And damn, this man can RAP. In fact, it's more like when he opens his mouth, freakin' spitfire comes out of it. I'm not exaggerating any facts here. He raps so fast that 95% of Koreans can't understand what the heck he's saying, like most rappers out there, but unlike most other rappers out there who mumble and slur their words together when they try to rap their words quickly, Outsider pronounces and articulates every single word crystal clearly. It's not that you can't understand him from his speech alone- it's just that you can't really follow him because of the sheer speed he's rapping at. But if you listen closely, you can understand almost everything he's saying- just don't hurt your ears while you're straining them. Even his normal speaking voice sounds like rapping when he talks! XDDD


But don't be fooled into thinking, "So what if this guy's just fast? Speed isn't everything". And you're absolutely right; even Outsider admits that himself. Although Outsider's specialty is breaking the speed of sound with his rapping skills, not only does his speed stand out from others, but the emotion he puts into his rapping stands out from others. Even though you can't understand a single thing he's blabbering about, somehow, you can feel what he's trying to convey to his audience from his machine gun-like words. And this guy certainly doesn't rap about shooting others or another girl he had a one-night stand with; he raps about topics everyone, all of his audience, can relate to and connect with. This man is a lyrical genius. His words just pierce right through you and leaves an impact, and you feel a little different after listening to a song of his. You don't know why you feel a bit different, but one thing that most people can agree with after listening to an Outsider song: Damn, whatever you just listened to was ama-ZING.



I've been a fan of Outsider's for only a little over a year now, and first discovered his tongue-twisting rapping skills around last summer, back when Outsider was still promoting the title track "Loner" of his second (masterpiece) album Maestro, while I was watching my daily Korean music show on TV on the weekend. I remember my reaction while I was snacking on some peaches... "Oh, this guy raps pretty well!" *Continues to watch contently until... he reaches the climax point of the song where he goes into total supersonic mode* *...Mouth now gaping wide open and half-chewed peaches slowly grossly sliding out of mouth back into bowl* "......HOLY SHIT. WTH. WTF WAS THAT. WTH DID THAT GUY JUST DO- IS THIS FOR REAL?!?? I DON'T FUCKING EVEN-"



...yeah, you get my point there. XD;; But in other words, yes, I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY at what this guy who came out of nowhere did on the screen in front of me. I was immediately hooked after the song ended, and needed to know more about this mysterious rapper who could probably rap a whole Harry Potter novel in 5 minutes. Even when I found him on Youtube and showed him to my mom, my mom was like, "...Are you sure this guy is even rapping in Korean? I can't understand a single word he's saying.... And is he even BREATHING while rapping??" XDDD
But ever since that fateful day, I have been listening to his music and supporting Outsider. Whenever somebody asks me if I can recommend them good Korean music (after first showing them Seo Taiji, of course ;D), I show them Outsider, and he almost NEVER fails to amaze them. I love watching people's reactions contort from ":|" to "O_______________O" after they watch a live performance of his. It never gets old. EVER. |DDD It makes me happy that I don't always have to resort to cursing idol groups all the time for dominating the charts and hogging all the attention, since Outsider did take the #1 spot on the Korean charts for weeks for that song I just mentioned, beating out the idol group-army ridden competition. >:DDD


But if THAT didn't impress/convince you to have a reason to respect Outsider, then how about these reasons?


-Outsider didn't have humble beginnings when he first debuted. In fact, he was in the underground scene for years before his talent was finally discovered by a record company, so he definitely had to claw his way up to the top of the charts with tooth and nail and fighting with plenty of blood, sweat, tears, and spitfire. Even then, he didn't become really successful and more recognized by the public until last year for his hit song Loner, which catapulted him into the mainstream scene.

-That fast rapping Outsider's famous for, came from a LOT of practice. Outsider would jog for miles everyday, almost marathon-long distances, while rapping as he ran in order to help strengthen and expand his lungs for the air capacity he needed to rap quickly without slurring his words. It nearly killed him to do it almost every single day, but his training has greatly paid off in the end.

-Outsider certainly didn't get all of his lyrics straight from being a lyrical genius or something like that, nor did he become successful by crossing the long, hard road to fame by himself. In fact, he had lots of help from others. How? Before he debuted, Outsider strapped on a backpack packed with some light necessary supplies for survival, and traveled around the whole country, listening to other people's stories and experiences about their own lives in order to help inspire him to make music that everyone can relate to, and to help him understand his audience. He also learned the definition of kindness from strangers by asking them for help whenever his supplies ran low or whenever he needed a place to stay dry from the rain, and most of the time, he got it, simply by reaching out and asking others for help and listening to their personal stories. He strove to become enlightened in empathy, and his hard work and efforts has paid off in the long run, with many people being touched and moved and feeling a connection to his lyrics today.



Still not convinced that this Outsider guy is amazing? Welllll, words don't really explain everything, so...

I have prepared lots of auditory and visual samples for everyone to take in and learn of the sheer amazingness of Outsider!! 8DDD And please don't say that you don't want to listen to him because you hate rap. That shouldn't be a reason why you should reject a new opportunity offered to you. I dislike most rap out there today as well, but trust me on this. I would not recommend what I think is just simply okay to others, and recommend only what seems absolutely amazing to others. I guarantee that listening to Outsider will be a whole new experience you will be astounded by, and if even then you still didn't like what you listened to, at least you can say that you were exposed to a different experience. Broaden your musical horizons, and don't be afraid to try a sample of Korea's fastest rapper! You won't be disappointed. ;]


I prepared a mixtape of what I think most represents and shows Outsider's range of skill, so if you're looking for a whole new musical experience, now is the perfect chance for you to download these samples~ x]

Outsider mixtape:
Contains the following tracks:

1. Innovation
2. Hit Me (Feat. Illinit)
3. 남자답게 (Like A Man)
4. 외톨이 (Loner)
5. Value Of The Man (Feat. Deffinite Of Sunday 2pm)
6. Therapist (Feat. Illinit)
7. Luv Business (Feat. Bizniz A.K.A Young Gm, J`kyun)


Download here to receive an epic eargasm.

If you download the mixtape above, please listen to the songs in the exact track order I listed here~ Thank you very muchly in advance. :)

And after you listen to the whole thing, please tell me what you think of Outsider and his music!



If you're too lazy busy to listen to the mixtape I have provided above, then please watch at least one, or a few of these Youtube videos below for a visual and auditory look of the world of Outsider~


Outsider's MV of his hit song of last year, Wehteuri, or "Loner". If you only have the time to watch one video, then this is THE MV you need to watch.



Live performance of his hit song "Loner". An absolutely fantastic performance where you can see and hear Outsider's raw talent~


Another live performance of his hit song "Loner", but this was the first ever performance I saw of Outsider's on TV, for those of you who are curious. He just blew. Me. Away, and made my jaw drop when I saw this performance~ Also, it's rather amusing how the music program had to squeeze in Outsider's lyrics in big ol' chunks/a paragraph at a time, because this guy probably raps an essay for each song he does~ XDDD



Outsider's MV of debut song Namjadapge, or "Like A Man". A really breckneck and solid track for a first debut~



Outsider's live performance of his song "Like A Man". Yes, he looked really different back then (do you see the Seo Taiji-ness with those red dreads of his?!?) and lost a lot of weight, but certainly didn't lose any of his rapid-fire rapping skills~ ;D



I'll just be posting Youtube videos of the tracks I posted above from my mixtape for again, those who are too lazy to download it, just in case~ But anyway, this is the song called "Innovation" from his first album Soliloquist. He raps REALLY fast here, by the way. And I mean REALLY REALLY fast.



The track "Hit Me (Feat. Illinit)", which is a song off his newest album Protagonist released yesterday. This is the song that left the most impact on me off the whole album, and is just badass. Although Protagonist didn't feel as strong and solid as Outsider's previous two albums, it leaves a "feel-good" feeling on you since most of the songs are bright and cheerful, unlike his usual heavy stuff. I mean, just look at that cute doggy on the album cover compared to the other two ones!! XDDD I'm currently constantly putting the album on loop over 'n' over again~ |DDD



The track "Value of the Man (Feat. Deffinite of Sunday 2pm)", which is off what is in my opinion, his best and masterpiece album, Maestro. This is one of the many songs that demonstrates Outsider's amazing spitfire abilities.



Track "Therapist (Feat. Illinit) off the 2nd album, Maestro. Really clever lyrics in this song. Outsider's rapping is "a whip to masochists"~ ♪



And finally, one of Outsider's best songs, "Luv Business (Feat. Bizniz A.K.A Young Gm, J`kyun)". Just damn sick with plenty of flow and rhythm packed in it. If "Loner" or "Like A Man" didn't impress you, then listen to this track. Dammit, there used to be a video of an English subbed version of this song on Youtube, but I guess it got deleted... DDD8 It was a really good translation too, that showed the many wordplays Outsider likes to use in his lyrics. Oh well. >A<;;; But this song should surely make you fall in love with Outsider's supersonic tongue-twisting rapping skills~



And this video is for all of you who are REEEEEALLYYY LAZYYY, along with providing a little amusement and amazement. If you can't even have the time to check out a single song, then please at least watch this 25 second video~ This video is a short commercial of Outsider showing off his rapid spitfire skills and rapping off a huge list of names of countries in like, 10 seconds flat, and completely baffling the flight attendant lady in front of him, who gives Outsider a free plane ticket for his mad skillz. Oh, and that random girl who was dancing at the end like a total freak... She was simply trying to impress the flight attendant as well so that she could also receive a free plane ticket. Priceless!! XDDD


Well, that was certainly a lot of videos posted, right? Although I highly doubt that any of you will check out ALL of what I posted above, I trust that you guys will listen to at least one of Outsider's amazing songs~ x) And if any of you guys want any more Outsider music, feel free to ask me! I would be happy to share plenty more of his songs with you guys, because I have all of his songs I can share, ufufuu~ Except for his LP releases, 'cause those songs are RARE. D:


So I'll just leave this here, and see how my pimpage post goes... ;] You guys really don't wanna miss out on listening to him though, because he's not going to be releasing anything new for a while, since he'll be off to the military at the end of the year/beginning of next year!! DDD8 Yes, in Korea, it is mandatory for all men to enlist in the military, no matter what kind of job you have, even if you're a celebrity. There's a reason why going to the military is called the "career-killer" in Korea; everyone forgets about you after you come back!! But not Outsider... All it takes for him to open his mouth again, and people will be reminded of who's boss when he makes another comeback in the future. ;DDD


Oh yeah, I also want to use this post to congratulate Outsider on revealing his 6-month relationship with his girlfriend!!! 8DDD ...Not gonna lie, I was kinda jealous when I first heard the news, like "NUUUUUUUUUU OUTSIDERRRRRRRR WRYYYYYYYYYYY- ;A;", even though I don't have a single chance to meet him in person in the future. XD;;; This sounds like trivial news to most of you, but in Korea, it is EXTREMELY difficult for celebrities to be able to have the courage to come out of their closets, whether they've been hiding a long-term relationship for a while and finally wanting to announce it or finally admitting their true sexuality. In Korea, people actually care about other people have to say on the Internet, whereas here it's all like, "Baaaw, it's the Internet, who freakin' cares", but it's the total opposite in Korea. If the people on the Internet, aka netizens, don't approve of what you're doing, prepare to flamed in real time, real life, hard. It's very common in Korea for celebrities to get openly attacked by people's comments and such, all because of the influence of the Internet, of all things. The extreme care celebrities and other people have to take making sure that they don't piss anyone off and such can put huge pressure on them and lead to them taking their own life due to depression, which is why there is a disturbingly high rate of celebrity suicides in Korea. It's a really tragic tale when you find out the truth behind stardom in Korea, but the truth can be harsh at times.

But Outsider has the balls to admit that hellz yeah, he has a girlfriend, and hellz to the yeah they already bought some fucking couple rings and necklaces and bracelets and all that lovey-dovey shit couples do!! Goddamn Outsider is such a gentleman to his lady!! Korea needs more celebrities to come out of their closets and tell the world that hellz yeah, they've been getting it on with that one hawt chick down the street!! Okay, maybe that shouldn't be admitted, but srsly, Korean celebrities finally admitting that they're taken makes me so happy that they have the guts to come clean. It's hard to reveal a relationship that you have to keep secret in the first place, but no one should have to have the burden of hiding something that big from the public.

Okay, all ranting aside, Outsider seems like a really sweet guy to his girlfriend. And not to mention that she's a violinist too and played a small part in his newest album!! No wonder Outsider's new album Protagonist sounds so happy, he's finally got someone to love and care for~ It really makes my heart feel all swollen up and fuzzy inside to know that he's in love and perfectly happy right now~ <333 I guess that talented people are attracted to each other like that. X3 I feel so sorry that his girlfriend has to wait for him to get out of the army after 2 years, though. That just sucks. 2 years is a very long time. DDD: Let's hope that their relationship stays strong, and that they'll keep contact with each other even though they'll be separated by a long distance!! ;O;

In short: Check out Outsider, he is awesome. You'll regret it big time if you miss out on this great opportunity here. D;



Can't wait for when Outsider will start promoting his newest album again!! I'm gonna try to watch all of his live performances on TV, screw homework~ *O* This son's got talent.

Oct. 22nd, 2010 09:19 am (UTC)
...LOL. Okay, here's what I hafta say about Grendel. I know that industrial is supposed to sound like... Industrial (lolsmart, I know), but that song you gave me sounds like something from a uh, dun kill me for this, from an old video game soundtrack or something!! XD;;; And when that distorted voice came outta nowhere in the beginning, I nearly lol'd at it, I'm sorry. ;A; It's just so annoying repeating itself, and I can't understand what it's specifically saying!! It sounds like "SOLO RELEASE" to me, and I wanted to strangle that voice since it repeated itself so many times and go, "YES, I KNOW THAT YOU'RE NOT IN A GROUP ANYMORE. THANK YOU, I HEARD THAT THE FIRST TIME. >OOO" I couldn't make it through the whole song because of that damned voice. I need some intense Outsider sessions to clear my ears of that annoying voice... ごめん~ >A<;;;

AND THAT GIRL BAND... I HEARD OF 'EM BEFORE, BUT DIDN'T LISTEN TO 'EM BECAUSE THEY LOOKED A LITTLE TOO SLUTTY, YA KNOW? Like, it's cool that they're a chick band doing metal and all, rock on and stuff, but it seems that they're oversexualizing themselves a little, like, "Hey! Hey!! We're chicks with BOOBS, and we can play guitar!! Look!! Girls! Guitars!! BOOBS!!!" XD;;; Other than that, the bgm is great, the vocals are decent, but they're not something that I would listen to everyday... There's something missing in their music.... われ~ ><;;; *Ttly rejecting what you gave me, orz*

WALK AROUND IN YOUR ACID TRIP D'ESPA SHIRT EVERYDAY, THEN. PROBLEM SOLVED.

Oct. 22nd, 2010 09:30 am (UTC)
I figured you wouldn't like either of them but that's what you get for putting me on the spot!! :P I have to be in the right mood to listen to industrial (… which I usually am in汗) so I kind of understand where you're coming from with that? XDD I guess I could find something, uh, more mainstream/"like-able by nonrivetheads" if I took the time to go through my music collection.

That girl band… they're agejo/gyaru so they dress like that (and, well, I wouldn't want to dress differently just because I make X type of music but like Y fashion)… though it might just be one of -those- things. Like, idk, a metal version of AKB48 & other girl-idol groups or something (if you look at the live video of them, the ENTIRE audience is guys XDD). I kinda hope not but, eh, wouldn't be surprised to find they were.

BUT THEN IT'LL WEAR OUT. :(( and yes I'm up late but I had mad 한국어 숙제 DDX

Oct. 22nd, 2010 09:40 am (UTC)
Loool, what kind of mood do you have to be in to listen to industrial?!?? XDDD And I couldn't get through that whole song anyway since it was over 7 minutes long; I only can tolerate Opeth songs that long!! DDDX But I'm relieved that you're able to forgive me~ ;A;

O rly?! I mean, when I just looked at their pictures alone, they looked okay, but from that short PV clip you linked me, the camera kept on zooming in on their boobs, which ttly made me go DDD8!!! バカエロカメラマン!!! DDDX And yeah, I bet that band's audience is 99% male. XDDD (AKB48's male fanbase scares me... They're even more overzealous than Korean girl groups' male fanbases DDD8)

YOU CAN USE IT AS A SCARF/BANDANNA THEN. AND GURRRL, GET SOME SLEEEEEEP NAO. >OOO (Lol look who's talking here, I need some srs sleep too, I CANNOT concentrate on writing this essay anymore~ DDDX)

...oh yeeeahhh. You guys don't have a single clue who or what I'm talking about though.... :X
Oh ye of little faith! XD ...I already know about Outsider indirectly thanks to my Korean former roommate. See, she liked really shitty kpop, but her sister liked Korean rock and her friends were obsessed with Korean rap (including Outsider), so they were all always trying to covert her to -better- music thank god. As a result, I got to listen to a whole bunch of new music whenever they came over to our place.

BUT MY POINT I swear I had one besides proving you wrong XD IS I'm pretty picky about music and it generally takes me a while to actually like an artist/band, but I was pretty much floored the first time my roommate's friends played an Outsider album for us. Anyone who doesn't have mad respect for this man's incredible speed-rapping talent, please form a single file line so I can smack you each upside the head in turn for being dumb.


By the way, I admire your dedication when it comes to creating such an informative artist introduction! *_* as much as I enjoy tl;dring all over the place, I'd probably lose my patience part way through if it was actually about something people would -want- to read about ^^;

Oct. 22nd, 2010 08:51 am (UTC)
OH THANK GOD THAT THERE'S AT LEAST ONE PERSON WHO KNOWS OF THE SHEER AWESOMENESS OF OUTSIDER. ;O; And the sister of your tone-deaf former Korean roommate rocks- I'm SO glad that she introduced you to Outsider, because srsly, NOT knowing Outsider should be considered a blasphemous crime. Along with not knowing Seo Taiji. XDDD;

I'm also EXTREMELY picky when it comes down to keeping new music, and yeah, I was pretty much knocked off my socks and could not believe what great sex my ears were receiving when I first saw Outsider on TV performing Loner last summer. And preach it, girl!! I will join you in the smacking, because rapping at THAT speed does not come easy, and if someone just scoffs at it... *Pissed off black girl's voice* Gurrrl, I will cut you, mmHMM.

Ahaha, I was really excited and wanted to fangirl really badly about Outsider's new album release (didja listen to it yet, btw?!? DDD8), but knew that 99.99% of my F-list wouldn't know about it, so I was determined to FORCE my F-list into knowing the greatness that is Outsider!! *w* Posting the Youtube videos was a bitch though, because the embedding codes and HTML did NOT want to cooperate with me... =A=;; I finally got it under control, though. ><;;;

Oct. 22nd, 2010 09:48 am (UTC)
*rereads own comment* Wow, that was kind of incoherent. It was my tone-deaf roommate's friends that introduced me to Outsider. My roommate's little sister was the one who liked Korean rock (she introduced me to various bands, including Seo Taiji, actually). Together, they were trying to teach my roommate to like better music...I'm not sure if they ever truly converted her because I moved out to go to Japan in 2009. I'd like to hope they did though for the sake of whomever lives with her now XD *is allergic to kpop*

Before I heard Outsider, I had NO IDEA it was humanly possible to rap so fast...AND HAVE IT SOUND AWESOME AT THAT~!

Glad to have someone at my side to help administer punishment to the non-believers, but LUCKILY everyone I've ever known who has listened to Outsider has responded as follows: ".........O_____________O IS THAT FOR REAL?! THAT'S INCREDIBLE!" ...I'd like to think it's because I know lots of people with good taste in music but, er, that's definitely not the case (exhibit A: former roommate). Thus, the only other option is Outsider's mad skills are just that universally awesome :D

Ack, no I haven't heard the new album yet don't ruin it for me, Bread, I beg of you~ D: BUT I WILL AS SOON AS I GET MY WORK UNDER CONTROL HERE. (listen to new album=incentive not to slack off/sleep/do other counterproductive things)

...embedding Youtube videos always has to fail for me like three times before it works, so I feel ya when it comes to those pesky things. ><

Oct. 22nd, 2010 09:56 am (UTC)
Ohhh, I see now~ And TAIJIIIIIIII. I'm so glad that you also know of Taiji too, your friends have taught you VERY well~ ;A; ISN'T HE JUST GREAT??!!??? 8'DDD I certainly hope that they converted her though, but it might've been too late, because if you cross over the gates of Hell to the side of K-Pop idol groups, then you're pretty much done for. XDDD;; *Is allergic to K-Pop as well and only likes old school K-Pop, back when it was actually GOOD*

Same here!! Outsider just owns like that because he is a total boss, and don't worry, I won't ruin Protagonist for you~ ;P It's not a bad album is all I'll say to you, but don't have sky-high expectations when you listen to it. Outsider never disappoints though, and he certainly delivered on this album as well! ^^ I'm actually gonna have to succumb to the temptations of sleep, because I can't concentrate on this damn essay anymore... I'll just have to wake up and do it super early and then rush to school like usual. *Sigh* ><;;;

I'm glad that I have sympathy here~ ;w;

I admit, rapping is not and never will be my thing. ^^;
But he is phenomenal.

Your taste in music is very varied. I'm very glad to see that. ♥
Diversity 좋아!

(I almost died laughing. X3)

Ahhh, I understand, rap can be super iffy with most people out there. XDDD; But I'm still glad that you recognize Outsider's talent, because he is just amazing at what he does!! *O*

Hehehe, I'm also into 트로트 (thanks to my super old-fashioned parents), 아우 촌스러~ XDDD;;

It was quite funny though, ㅋㅋ~ ♥

The funny thing is I've only heard him twice, but as soon as you mentioned rapping, I remembered. I think they made him do tongue-twisters on... Star King? or something. -faints-
It's impossible to pretend this man it's top-rate at what he does.

orly? My parents don't listen to music, unless I play it. (Then they listen to it too. Hehe.) 뭐가~? 트로트 좋잖아~ ㅋㅋㅋ
It's very... national. :D

I'm sending it to my dad to see what he thinks about it. Fufu~
Ah, reminds me. I pulled another insane move, hun.

Omg, you need to check out more songs from him then, if even you don't like rap~ ;O; I think that the song 주변인 would fit your tastes instead of the songs I listed above though, check it out!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CHp4j6bbaQ
Outsider's just so classy like that~ *O*

Lol srsly? Even rock music or D'espa? XDDD 좋지?!?? Yaaay, I'm glad that you like it too~ 8'DDD

I think he'll be very amused by it, 하하하~ XDDD And 뭐가? :O

동생이가 지금 학교에 가요~ 나중에봐 언니~ 지금 늦었어, ajklsfdl;kjaoirhivhaoiejr- DDD8 *Runs off at the speed of light*

Hmm. If you recommend it, I will do so as soon as I finish tinkering with my layout. ♥
Oops, I meant isn't, and not it's. Pfft. Glad you knew what I meant. XD

Even rock music. Except, they don't like songs they can't understand, so that part rules out Japanese music. But they let me listen to it, so I suppose it could be worse~

어-어오. 늦지마, 동생아~ ㅋㅋㅋ
나쁜 언니인가봐~ 동생 잡아놓고.

XDDD Of course I would understand my 언니~ ♥ And how'd ya like the song? :3

Haha, my parents are the same with yours~ They don't really like Outsider though, since he fits in the "can't understand him" category. XDDD;;

조금 늦었는데, 괜찮아 뭐~ XB
무슨 햇소리야?! 언니는 좋은 언니야, 진짜~ ♥

O.M.G. that guy has got a really quick mouth. I cannot even imagine how that is even possible O_________O His songs must be really fun to do in karaoke!

Doesn't he!?? His supersonic tongue-twisting rapping skills are just AMAZING like that, he seriously deserves his own Guiness Book of World Records page!! *O* And LOL, I would never pick up the courage to do an Outsider song in karaoke, because my mouth would be so twisted and worn out from trying to attempt it... @A@;;; But it would make for good lulz, lmfao. XDDD

Yes!

I'm alright. I haven't truly found time to myself yet, so it's been all work and no play for a while now. I'm not "too" stressed now though. Maybe I am and I don't notice because I'm so occupied And I DID had my first midterm yesterday DX Other than that I'm okay, not bald from ripping my hairs out yet XDDD ♥

Isn't Outsider such an insanely talented guy~ |DDD

Awww, I'm sorry to hear that! DDD8 But as long as you're not ripping your hairs out, I'm sure that you can handle whatever will throw itself at you next~ Hang in there!! ><;;

I just watched Alone and I'm very impressed. He raps so fast it makes me giggle xD;;. The music in that song is absolutely beautiful as well &hearts
I wonder how he raps that fast, was he born with it?

okay I'm gonna watch some more of the vids you posted! :3

Outsider sure has some crazy talent, doesn't he? 8DDD And wha, his rapping made ya giggle?!?? OAO; Well, I guess it does sound a bit funny, since he sounds like someone sped up a voice recording of his or something like that. XDDD I also love the violins in the background, who knew they could go so well with rap?? *w*

It's in the genes + toooooons of hours of practice! The scary part about Outsider really though, is that his FATHER can speak faster than him... It's insane, really. @A@;;; But besides that, he got to where he is now by blood, sweat, and tears!! X3

Yaaay, tell me what you thought of them! 8DDD And thanks for checking out Outsider, he can enlighten your life~ ♥

yeah, it sounds like when someone speeds up the sound or something XDD that's what made me laugh I guess

oh man his father too!? OAO

I listened to a few more of them, I like Value of the Man and Luv Business! :D

Oct. 23rd, 2010 05:33 am (UTC)
Ahahahah I see then XDDD

Well, not rapping exactly, but his father can speak preeeeetty fast, which kinda embarrassed Outsider, since there's someone faster than him out there in Korea- His own dad. XDDD Gosh, just imagine the speed those two can go at if they're angry and spitting out curse words!! OAO;;;

I'm glad you liked and enjoyed them! 8DDD Would you say that you would listen to more Outsider on a daily basis, or that his music will just remain as a good memory to you~?

Oct. 23rd, 2010 05:21 pm (UTC)
LMAO XDD

hmm I'll try listening to more of his music :D maybe not daily, but often?

I'm really glad that you enjoyed it!! 8DDD Many people say, "Oh, but I hate rap because of its stupid and meaningless lyrics, so I don't really know..." before they try listening to Outsider, and then they are completely blown away after they listen to a song of his. |DDD And yes, he is a lyrical genius, due to his increased sense of empathy and sympathy for those around him when he traveled around the whole country. ^^ But don't worry, I can barely jog for a single block, LOL I'm so outta shape OTL DDD:

For Korean idol groups, their lyrics have absolutely NO well-meaning in them at ALL... They aim to have their lyrics stuck in your head, no matter what it takes, even if it doesn't make sense, which is part of the oh-so-many reasons why I despise them so much. >A>;;

Yeah, it's really sad about the situation of celebrities in Korea, since their fans will literally tear them to pieces if they admit a relationship with someone else or admit that they're gay. Korea is too immersed in its media, which is a bad thing, as it can lead to many suicides, whether you're a celebrity or not. :(

Ahhh, good luck on that paper!! DDD8 I just finished my 2 essay prompts needed for applications, but I'm too lazy to start the application process itself... That'll come.... Sooner or later..... Most likely the latter...... XDDD;;; And I have nothing else to say about missing the deadline for the test. I can only blame myself and my irresponsibility, and hope that I can do better next time. But don't worry, you'll surely be ready to take the lowest level soon!! If you keep your goal in sight and keep on striving towards it, then you'll be there before you even realize it~ X3

Awww, I can only wish you luck in the future that you'll find something you'll enjoy doing to help your back then! ;A;

That's the spirit!! Continue to believe in yourself, and never lose faith in yourself~ ;w;
