I still have homework to do, so no time for a full OHGR concert report right now, but I took notes so I won't forget anything, and I'll try to post the report some time tomorrow or Saturday. ^^

For now, I can tell you IT WAS AWESOME~! =DDDDD

Taiji was hospitalized recently. ;_; Apparently he had a nasty fall. He's in critical condition, but fortunately it's nothing life-threatening. I really hope he recovers soon, though!

Okay, I don't know much about Korean pop singers, but this is ridiculous. Apparently, this song called "Mirotic" by a band called DBSK is being considered "harmful and detrimental" to youths in Korea. The song is being banned from Korean tv or radio play before 10 PM, and the album will have stickers indicating that it's "unsuitable for people under 19 years old". On top of that, they will have to edit the lyrics to this song during live performances.

Want to know just how "inappropriate" these lyrics are? See for yourself (translation by Yumeko):

So while some of the lines may be a tiiiiny bit suggestive (and honestly a bit silly XD"), I do NOT think this song warrants such strict censorship. Not to mention I'm 100% for freedom of speech/expression and completely against censorship anyway. XD" But bias aside, this situation is utterly retarded. @_@

Speaking of Korean pop stars, has anyone else seen these epic pieces of brilliance? XDXD
