Some people are mistaken into thinking that I like Kpop and watch a lot of K-dramas. The truth is… I don’t.
I like Korean hiphop alot more than I do Kpop. In fact, I generally don’t fancy pop much. I’ve always leaned towards the softer rock and yes, hiphop. I like BigBang, Leessang and I adore Epik High, mainly coz of Tablo.
As for K-dramas, I actually enjoy Korean variety shows more, and I watch more variety shows than I do dramas.
Oh boy, talk about Superman Returns… Choo Sarang is just wayyyyyy cute!! And I adore Choo Papa! Shhhh… I actually think he’s kindda ugly-but-mighty-sexy!
Ahhhh, but that’s a story for another day. I wanna talk about Tablo today, he’s also one of the fathers on Superman Returns. So, when he’s not playing rapper of Epik High, he’s playing father to Haru and husband to Kang Hye Jung!
I love their love story, and love how YG was looking out for Tablo even before he joined them! Yea, Kang Hye Jung was under YG back then, and she was the one who made Epik High’s joining YG happen. You can check out the story on YGFAMILY ON STRONG HEART.
I’ve always been more of a textual than visual person, so I love love love words. In some ways, I even see some hiphop lyricists as modern day poets. That’s how I see Tablo and Gary to be honest.
And the best-est part about Tablo?
His English is superb, so he actually has a few tracks that are in English! (He’s an English major from Stanford and completed his degree ahead of everyone else too!)
Have you watched his cover of TAEYANG’s EYES, NOSE, LIPS? To call it a cover is actually wrong, coz it really sounded like a totally new song. I actually see it as a sequel…!
It’s in English and yup, Tablo penned the lyrics!
I also like one of his older tracks, Dear TV
And this one’s pure gold! Being Alone (ft. Classiquai)!
Have you read about what happened to Tablo some years back? Truly sad story, almost unbelievable too. Am so glad all that is all behind him now, and Tablo and his family can get on with living their lives. Click HERE to read about what happened to him.
And he appeared on Healing Camp and shared a lot about what happened to him. His wife appeared too. Good one to watch, so don’t miss it!
