I don’t remember if I updated you all on our switch up or not, but yes, I mistook the schedule and did Transformation Tuesday when I was supposed to do a Flashback Friday. Oh well; at least we’re going in logical order now, whereas before we were going backwards.
So, because of our technical issues, and the new schedule now, here is our Watch-It Wednesday. Now, the OSTs for this week’s Watch-It Wednesday has made it’s way onto our Shuffle-It Sundays already, and I know I’ve praised this movie each time. That’s right, movie. It’s not a drama this week. So, if you haven’t yet watched 무림여대생, literally translated as “The Impossible Female Student”, but better known as My Mighty Princess, then I suggest you open up some time to watch this much loved Korean movie.
My Mighty Princess is about a young female, a beautiful martial arts prodigy at that, Kang So Hee (Shin Min Ah). She is about to start her life into adulthood, but her super human strength and prowess scares those around her, including the boy she has a crush on, Jun Mo (Yoon Gun). So Hee’s father notices hat her skills aren’t as sharp, and wants her to practice her martial arts more, but So Hee refuses, stating that she wants to live a normal life. In hopes of changing her mind, Il Young (Oh Joo Wan), a childhood friend who has always loved So hee, suggests that they start practicing their martial arts again. So Hee gives him the same answer with the same excuse.
After a little scuffling with some street gang members, So Hee and Il Young have a drink together. She tells him about a recurring dream, which he realizes as the incident that caused So Hee to lose her memories. After the very important Green Destiny sword had been stolen, Il Young and So Hee had thought they could defeat the villain, Heuk Bong (Jung Ho Bin), so they went in pursuit of him. Unfortunately, So Hee gets hit with a poisonous strike, and she is taken to the hospital.
So Hee’s father and his other allies decide that it is time to fight Heuk Bong again, and end things once and for all. After learning the lightning strike that his own wife had used to defeat Heuk Bong once, So Hee’s father calls Heuk Bong out to fight. On the night of the fight though, So Hee’s father is surprised to see Il Young instead, and is caught off guard when Il Young attacks him, injuring him badly enough that he falls into a coma. It turns out that Il Young exchanged his life to get the cure for So Hee back then. Heuk Bong had hypnotized him to be his minion, and died before he could break the hypnosis. So now, whenever anyone asks for Heuk Bong, Il Young must go in his place, and the only person strong enough to defeat Il Young is So Hee.
Now, onto the OSTs! The OSTs for this movie are no joke. I loved all the songs from this movie, and it’s really hard to just pick two. So, I’ll just go with one that completely caught me off guard, and another that just stuck with me.
First up is 45rpm’s Past Luv featuring Gummy.
This song has been on Shuffle-It Sunday once or twice already and this is the one that completely caught me off guard. One, I have never heard of 45rpm in my life, but I’m glad I discovered them. Two, how did I not know that it was Gummy featured in this song?! I love her voice! Maybe it was because I fell in love with this song before I completely became a fan of Gummy. There’s no doubt that I love the instrumental. I absolutely love the rapping as well, although the third rapper didn’t really impress. Still, the rapping gives off a story-telling feeling, and I like it.
The second song is “Because I’m a Man” by MC Mong featuring Lee Sang Min. Now, I know MC Mong went through an avoiding-the-army scandal, but like many people say, you can’t deny a good song.
MC Mong’s rapping just matches the instrumental so well, and Lee Sang Min’s voice is just such a sweet tune to the ears. This song speaks for itself, so I don’t really have much to say about it.
Well, now that I’ve gone through the OSTs, I kind of want to watch the movie again. Seriously though, if you have time, give this movie a watch! It will definitely become a classic. Besides, who doesn’t love Shin Min Ah? Or Yoon Gun at that?
