American Idol Finale, On David Cook

David CookIt’s such a disappointment! David Cook didn’t belt it out and the song choices were mediocre! No David Cook signature on the song arrangement and so, his performances came out flat and forgetable!

I think he meant it when he said that as far as he is concerned the competition is over. He didn’t even look like he was trying! Could it be because he has a really big offer before the finale such that winning American Idol would be a deal breaker or that, he simply wants to go on his own after American Idol? Of course, I’m only speculating!

Ragardless, if he comes out with new songs, I’d totally want to hear it!

Updated (May 23, 2008 ) :  I didn’t expect it but I am happy that David Cook has won! However, can’t help but speculate again that the votes he got were sympathy votes considering his inferior performance, which looked like a knockout in favor of david archuleta.

Winter Sonata

Winter Sonata was first shown in Korea in 2002. Then it was shown in Japan dubbed with Japanese. A japanese friend really loved Winter Sonata. She only had good things to say about this. I wasn’t into TV then so, I didn’t care at all.

Winter Sonata has an original story at a time and place where the culture dictates that family comes first, where holding hands is not cheap and kissing is rare even for lovers. I find the story very romantic but too dramatic!<Click here to read more.>
