Judge my music, not my looks, Entertainment News & Top Stories - The Straits Times
Earlier before I was dressing and I had another white t-shirt and I asked my fans, “ What should I wear?” and they We all have our solo moments where I DJ, Minzy had her dance solo, Dara and Bom had their solos. Q: Do you have any advice for me before I go into Berkeley? Q: What's your relationship with Bigbang?. T.O.P during an interv This is all about Park Bom. If you are not a fan of her, don't read Also for the sake of the next girl I'll be dating, let me say no. +. +. Q5. Jul 20, Lydia Paek sings and writes songs for top Korean acts, with whom she hobnobs It became a song by 2NE1's Park Bom, Don't Cry," says Paek, who is Fans are envious of your close relationship with the YG artistes. What advice do you have for aspiring performers, such as singers and dancers?.
Bom blushed and looked down, unable to meet his tender gaze. I should get going. I have to practice and come back to preform again tomorrow night. Our managers are right outside talking, I'll walk with you. As she walked up, she turned around, letting him slip the coat on her. He left his hands on her shoulders for a little longer than necessary. He felt her slowly turn around and then look up into his eyes. Top nodded yes waiting for her to continue. Now it's my turn to ask a question," he said as he opened the door for her and waited for her to pass by.
They were almost to their managers when he heard her say, "Looking for rainbows of course. Leaving him to wonder what exactly those words she had said meant. While almost everyone in the YG family watched 2NE1 TV, he knew that he really loved the parts that showed the goofiness of Bom the most.
One thing he had noticed after watching both on and off screen was that when she clapped she looked up. Actually whenever she was happy about anything, she had a tendency to look up. He couldn't really understand why, it just seemed like it was one of the quirks that made her, well her. Even though, like him, she was the oldest in the group, she seemed to be the youngest with her outlook on life. You only had to watch her a few times to know that she loved life.
She loved living it, being a part of it and sharing it. Even when she was upset, she tried to smile through it. Except for that one time, he thought darkly. The only time that he had really seen her lose her smile and composure was the part of her in LA visiting her aunt's grave.
From what he had learned, she had to wait years before being free enough to go back and visit. He could still hear her gut wrenching sobs as she leaned over the grave, lovingly cleaning it off, as the sorrow came off her in waves.
Judge my music, not my looks
Something inside him broke as he watched the tears roll down her face and he soon found himself shouldering her pain, his own cheeks stained with tears.
But looking at her now, he knew that when she looked up like that she was seeing something that no one else did. The smile she always had as she did so was always so glorious and filled with joy, you had no choice but to smile back.
She made you feel happiness with her innocent inquiries or silly statements or actions that had won over many a heart. It had been several months since that small exchange had taken place with her.
But it wasn't as if he hadn't seen her. They had promoted 'Oh Yeah' on several different shows, but between the success of her single and 2NE1's comeback and his schedule, meeting her would be impossible for any length of time.
But it wasn't time that they had wasted. Once she had figured out what he had meant, he had been elated to find that she felt the same way about him. He smiled as his mind went back to the long glances across the room, secret quick meetings well if he was being honest kisses in the deserted hallways, late night text messages and unnoticed touches when no one was looking. But it had been a few weeks now of just text messages and he missed her.
This was the reason he was still in the studio right now. He wondered if she was still here, but knew that the answer was probably not. She had a few more performances this week and photo shoots if he remembered correctly which meant that whenever she could sleep, he encouraged her to do so. The last thing he wanted was for her to fall ill again like she had last year. Even though he knew she had had the flu, he knew it was worsened by her exhaustion.
Sighing he walked toward the Big Bang practice room. Luckily for him it took him right past 2NE1's practice room as well. Out of habit he stopped in front, his ears straining to hear if Bom was inside.
She often told people that she was going to practice dance moves, but in reality she ended up searching things on the internet and singing to her favorite songs. Just as he was about to leave, he heard the voice he wanted to hear most drift through the door.
Don't think that I'm not interested. I'm just playing hard to get So much about this crazy game they call love That I'm trying to understand, So could you be my best friend, Before you call yourself my man. Making sure that the hallway was clear, he opened the door to the practice room excited that he had found her alone.
He missed her and even if they only had an hour together he would take it. Not seeing her had been torture. Even though text messages and video chats between them were great, nothing was going to be better than holding her tight and speaking to her face to face.
Listening to Bom sing was one of the things that gave him the most pleasure. He loved the uniqueness of her voice. Even when he had been asked years ago, his answer was still the same today; there was no one in the world with a voice like hers. Smiling he stood behind her as she poured her heart into one of her favorite songs. When it ended he finally spoke.
Top wrapped his arms around her, squeezing her small form, while leaning down to bury his face in her long hair. He loved that she wore a slightly flowery perfume, but it was extremely subtle. Sighing contently he continued to hold her against him, "I've missed you.
I've missed you too. Leaning forward Top place a light kiss on her lips, drawing away he felt her lay her head against his chest and grab her wrists around his waist. It was nice to have her hold him and he loved the feel of her against him as well.
They were the perfect fit. Honestly I just didn't feel like doing it even though Chaerin yelled at me to do so. Soooo I started looking around on the internet and singing.
I don't like learning the steps either and if you watch closely usually it's my version of the steps, but you have to make the effort at the very least. I've been dancing all day. I'm hungry but I can't eat, so I decided to sing and look at the computer for a while to distract myself. He didn't like that she did it so often. Usually it was under the pressure of her being compared to someone or the way she thought she looked in her short outfits.
But I have to because of all the photo shoots we have coming. It's ok really, I promise not to make myself sick. Nothing you would be interested in, "said as she dove for the computer's mouse trying to close the windows before he could sneak a peek. Luckily he was quicker and taking over the mouse before she could get to it. He didn't know whether to be annoyed, jealous or to simply laugh. In front of him was an article about another one of her idol fanboys.
The number seemed to be growing and it didn't look like it would be stopping any time soon. This one had said that he thought her doll-like face was beautiful and she had a wonderful singing voice. His companion said that when he had seen her in the hallway at a performance on a show, he was so shy he couldn't talk to her but he would like to one day have a conversation.
What was he to do, he better than anyone else knew how beautiful she was inside and out. So he really couldn't blame them.
He didn't like it, but he couldn't blame them. Glancing over at Bom he saw that she was blushing at being caught searching herself on the net, giving her a teasing smile he said, "I'm going have to lock you away. One of these days you're going to fall for one of these young idols, I just know it. That would never happen. He clicked the window closed, standing up to lead Bom to one of the dark corners of the practice room. Music was still playing the background as he sat on the floor, leaning against the wall.
He sat her in front of him leaning her back against his chest. He lifted their hands up and lacing their fingers together in the air. Bom sighed contently as she sat in the arms of Top. When she had saw him her heart had picked up its pace and the excitement over took her.
It had been weeks since she had seen him in person and she had missed him terribly. Seeing him made her heart soar and she wished that there were more times like this that they could share.
They sat quietly for some time. Finally she broke the quiet, "I wish we could do this more often. We could sneak away and do something then. Jiyong would cover for us. His mind drifted for a moment to the question he wanted to ask her. What do you see when you are so happy that you look to the sky? Whenever something good happens I believe it's the thing that we search for at the end of the rainbow.
When I'm happy, I believe that at the end of the rainbow is happiness. Everyone has a rainbow and life is full of rainbows you just have to want to see them. Some people say that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, but I believe it's more like happiness at the end of the rainbow. Does that make sense? For me it was more like rather than learning how to dance in the rain, it was finding the rainbows after the storm.
Life is stressful and sometimes hard, just like a storm. But at the end of every storm if you're brave enough to walk outside as the sun comes out, you find a rainbow. I'm saying that it always happens; sometimes it takes several storms for you are able to see one, and like life sometimes it's several obstacles and hardships before you find the happiness. But anyway that's what I meant. So when I look up, I'm searching for that rainbow to let me know that the storm has passed and it was all worth it.
While most would think that she was always silly, he knew if you really sat and got to know her, she had sides to her that stayed hidden. It was that innocence mixed with complexity that made him love her so much. He knew in is heart that this wasn't a passing fascination, but rather something deeper than that. Even when life is hard, you should always believe that eventually a rainbow will come along to show you the storm has passed for now. Many people had asked her why she did that by looking up.
She usually just shrugged as a response and then changed the subject. But being with him she knew that she was safe and she trusted him completely. She snuggled down deeper, wishing this moment could last forever.
I don't have anything and I don't think you do either, we could sneak away. You say you're going home and I'll say I need a break. We could spend the whole day in the country where no one would be able to track us.
What do you think? Not wanting to let the real world intrude on their time, she hesitated to pick it up. Top must have seen her indecision, but knew that she had to. The group was still new enough that getting into trouble was quite easy despite the popularity they had.
It's probably telling you it's time to go. Maybe it was time to take this to the president and take things to the next level. He didn't like being away from her and the thought of being able to see her every day was appealing enough to override his common sense.
It was something that he would have to form a plan for. Bom accepted the cellphone from Top, opening it up as he placed his chin on her shoulder to look at the message. She sighed dejectedly at the message Unnie it's time to go back to the dorm. Be downstairs in 5 mins. She was a great little sister that way, always looking out for her. She sent a simple reply, looking back up at Top.
She felt Top chuckle behind her. Bom was unhappy but she nodded in agreement, closing her eyes and lifting her face toward him and into the palm of his hand. She felt him shift as his body moved closer, his lips finally settling on hers. The kiss was sweet, filled with longing and love.
As they pulled way she saw the love shining his eyes as he looked at her. Be careful going home and text me when you get there. He watched as she left his heart already heavy as he watched her leave. Bom walked slowly to the door, turning around as she opened it.
She could leave him letting him think that she was sad. Raising her arms, she formed a heart with her hands on her head and gave him her brightest smile.

Top smiled as he saw Bom's declaration at the door. She filled him with happiness he hadn't felt in a long time. He usually felt so lonely and sad, but not once had those feelings returned since he and Bom had started their relationship. He walked silently down the hall to the place where his manager was.
Practice was all but forgotten as his mind couldn't concentrate on anything but his woman. After informing his manager he wanted to go home, he climbed in the van as they headed there. All he really wanted to do now was to lay down and sleep so tomorrow would come sooner.
He felt his phone go off in his pocket. He smiled as he read the message from Bom - Finally home… sleepy. He quickly text his reply: I love you too.
Sleep well and dream of me. I'll talk to you tomorrow. He had just put his phone away as he didn't expect an answer as he felt it go off again. Unlocking it he found another message: I always dream of you. Sweet dreams and save some room for me in yours. Love 8DQ Top smiled to himself as he recognized her incognito name that they came up with to communicate should anyone ever steal or find their phones.
Her idea not his. But I love it anyway he thought with a smile. Bom felt her shoulders sag in disappointment as the message came to her phone.
I won't be back for our coffee date. I'll make it up to you I promise. Love 4DAP Well she guessed it couldn't be helped. It was what their lives were like after all.
Constantly busy and sneaking moments when they could, not that she was complaining, she loved him and he loved her, in the end that's all that mattered. Some things in their schedules just couldn't be avoided. She guessed she would just use her free time to practice her dance moves that she had been avoiding anyway. Maybe if she was lucky the voice coach could fit her in as well. As she walked towards the practice room, she felt her phone go off in her pocket.
I know you're going to practice because you didn't the other day. I left something for you in your locker. Putting in her combination, she unlocked the door anxious to find what was inside. Lying inside was a singe rose. It wasn't just any rose, but a rainbow rose tied with a rainbow colored ribbon. It was simply beautiful. Next to it was an envelope and inside was a plane ticket.
It was dated for tomorrow. She wondered if she could get the day off. Just as the thought passed through her mind, a text came through on her phone — Don't worry I've taken care of it. Just pack your bags for a few days and a car will be waiting for you at the airport. See you in Okiniwa. She didn't know how she had got so lucky in finding him, but she was thankful that she did. Top smiled as he sent the last message.
He was headed to the small Japanese island after his meeting with the president he had earlier. He thought back to his surprise that it had gone so well. He was more of the father figure to the company that was labeled as a family, than he was a president.
YG was a family and their close ties is what made them so different than any other company. It was also known that Appa YG was very selective. There wasn't an overabundance of people in the agency, just a few people with an abundance of talent. He was one of the big three, and here Top was asking him something that would change his life. YG sat on the couch, motioning for Top to take the chair across from him.
He didn't know how well this was going to go, but he had to try. I just wanted to tell you…. YG sat back, holding back his smile. Looking at Top he saw himself years ago with his own wife. He had hid that relationship for years before actually coming clean. And at that time he wasn't at the peak of his career like these two. But he couldn't deny the pain that he had experienced at having to keep it a secret, when most of the time all he had wanted to do was hold her hand in public. Which Top had done, if he remembered the Big Show correctly.
I didn't plan it, we didn't plan it but I wouldn't ever change a thing. And I believe she loves me. I'm sorry to tell you we don't plan to stop or that we're sorry it happened. And what about your careers? I assume that you know about the clause in Bom's contract? I would ask that you not punish her for something that wasn't planned. You can't help you who fall in love with, any more than you can choose the time you fall in love.
I would ask that you release her from that part of her contract. And I would ask your advice about our careers, because even though this is my dream, I would give it all up to be with her.
He was the disco king of his high school back in the day. My dad is always listening to the songs that I made in the morning. They never stopped me from doing what I like to do. Even if they said that they wished I had something more secure for a career, they were never forceful. They were just concerned because they know it's not an easy way to make a living. Where do you get your inspiration to write songs? Sometimes it comes from the movies, TV shows and commercials that I've watched.
Inspiration also comes from my experiences. As an example, if you're eating at a restaurant by yourself and a guy looks at you and checks you out. You get this feeling, write it down and you could use it for inspiration for that next song. Fans are envious of your close relationship with the YG artistes. Could you share some interesting tidbits about them?
Rapper CL of 2NE1 is amazingly talented. As a friend, she's very encouraging. She's a role model to a lot of people. I have a lot of respect for her.
The BigBang guys are great at music. They are also very funny. P acts all suave onstage, but he actually likes to fool around. G-Dragon is very good at telling stories and is really funny. Nobody laughs when I try to tell a funny story. Seungri is very good at talking, he's very sociable. He's so easy to get along with. Daesung has such a kind heart.
One time I mentioned that my skin is so bad and he recommended me a skincare brand that is expensive. The next time we had a recording session, he bought me the skincare set. What advice do you have for aspiring performers, such as singers and dancers? When you're an entertainer or doing anything creative, you have to be prepared to be judged and get criticised.
There will be good and negative comments. Honestly, it's your life. You should live it the way you want it. What does it matter what others say? Make it a habit to wake up and look in the mirror, tell yourself that you are going to do it. What's a nasty comment that you've received? On my YouTube channel, I remember this mean comment: It was also funny to me because I'm not a make-up guru on YouTube. I sing, but you're commenting on how I look. Who cares if I'm ugly.
