RESOLUTIONS FOR 2017

Hello, since it’s nearly the end of the month in 2016, I think I will make resolutions for the next year. It is not too early, is it? I think I did not do much in this year, I would do better in the next year, I wish (I always say this when I made new year resolution).

1.   Have a proper job. I just graduated in August, since then I was being a job seeker. I targeted national company as my job. However the battle was too tight because everyone wants to join in that. PLN (Electricity National Company), Pertamina (Oil and Natural Gas Cooperation), and others. I used to step the 6th stage of PLN working test it was physical test, and guess I failed. I was so down and hurt for days until I realized that it was not the end of everything. I also applied for company that I think I am interested but no sign of it. Sigh. Now I am still jobless. Probably if I still do not have a job until the next early days, I would apply in private company or wherever because I really can’t stand for having no job. Pray that I can get a proper job. Amin.
2.   Improving my religion knowledge by listening to religion speech, joining a religion event, reading religion book, and many more. Also, I want to start memorize more surah. Amin.
3.     Reading books. I have many books, but barely finishing them. I met one of my internet friend who is nerd alert, I mean she love books so much. She often reviews the books and she looks so smart because she knew many things. From what I know, she targeted to read > 20 books this year, and she did it well, even more of it could be. I want to read many genres of books, religion, fiction, non-fiction, mysterious, and others.
4.    Improving my English and be fluent of it. I have been learning English for years but I could not still expert of it. I have to learn harder and have more practice.
5.    Writing. I used to write short stories, essays, articles back then when I was in college. Now, I lose the joyful of writing since I never get started again. Sigh.
6.    Developing my business. I started my business a while ago and it did not work out. I have to think hard to market that first. I do really hope, my business will work Please pray for me. Regarding a business, please follow the IG on (@momochrome_ig). Spread the loves J

I guess, those are my temporary resolutions for 2017. Those can be changed, I will update if there are some changes. Thank you ;)

Kpop is Not Only those Things but A thing

What is in your mind once you heard about Kpop? A group of men doing synchronized dancing with the same-matching outfit? Or a group of woman wearing a short pant and have pretty long legs? Well, you are not wrong though, I mean those are a part of kpop world or you might hear this "Hallyu wave" or the Korean craze. I used to dismiss and call my friend, who are kpop fans, were weird because I thought watching the same performances with the same boring outfit, hard dancing, and lipsync singing-technical all over again were absurd and a time waste. This question was often be asked by me once I watched my female friends were fangirling over:

"How come you watch the same performances all over again? For God's sake, these are all the same." Or
"Why did those guys look so feminine?" 

     Since my friends were all over Kpop, I could not not to care. Until some day, one of my friends, showed me a MV of Super Junior who were crazily well-known that time. The first ever Korean song that I heard was Mr. Simple and I could not lie that it was so catchy. Well, karma does exist. I began to explore about the others song and guess what? I might like them? Did I really like kpop now? I was not sure that time. Again, I found another group who lead me deeper to this kpop world. They are SHINee (Super Junior's younger label mates). The different was SHINee had lesser members and their dance is harder than Suju's. I started to follow every SHINee's activities, such as CFs, variety show, concert, and even surfed about their private life. However, it was just a phase I guess since I was bored after that. 
     
     Getting into college did not mean I could forget about Kpop. Actually, I have many friends who also like Kpop. My fangirling mode was returning since the day I heard "Monster" by Big Bang, it was not catchy typical-like Korean song usually were, it was harder and having hip-hop unsure inside it. Since I like it, I searched for others Big Bang’s songs and I would constantly love them. Knowing Big Bang I realized that Kpop is not in that a boundary of a stigma that reveals the general facts spread over the world, but more of it. Trust me, once you know Big Bang, your point of view of seeing kpop would totally different. You would not see “feminine” guys with synchronized and hard dance, but a weak ass dance and full energy instead. Big Bang really broke the stereotypes of Kpop in general. You can see the different between Big Bang and others kpop group by watching their performances.

Kpop is like a side world to only enjoy and look for temporary happiness despite facing the tough life in reality. I mean I was using it as entertainment. A sasaeng or diehard fans. I totally hate and against it. The truth is the Koreans fans are mostly surrounded by High School students who are still immature and having a narrow mind that their favorite groups are the best in all category. Bullshit, let’s admit that the idols are also human who have weakness side. I hate when fans give overwhelmed praise to their favorite and downgraded the others group, especially groups from small company. Hardcore fans like fanwar to prove the extraordinary of their favorite group. But it is Kpop after all, a place for bunch of girls chanting their favorite.

Back to topic that Kpop is still all about what I had written above. Miraculously, I found another boy group who catching my attention. They were Winner (Big Bang’s younger label mates). They were totally different with Big Bang. Since stanning Winner, I made fangirling Twitter account to only talk about this Korean thing. I started to make friends from over the world, Italy, Philippines, Thailand, England, Malaysia, Singapore, and many more. Of course, I thought my English was improving? Since we only talk using English, even with Indonesian friends themselves. There is a thing that hook me up until now regarding this, my new friend. I have encountered one of my internet friend, she is Ghe. She is super nice, talented, and people person. She came to Malang months ago and we decided to meet up. Others, we only communicated through social media. They are so nice and friendly. Meeting new friends mean we talked many things, not only kpop. We talked about music, politic, international issue, religion, etc. I was ignorant and clueless regarding what happened to this world before, but now I care and follow the news, not only Indonesia or South Korea, but over the world.             

Now days, I took a look into KHH (Korean Hip Hop) because Kpop was bored (well, since my favorites are on hiatus). Do not expect to find handsome oppar here since you would not find them, no I mean you nearly find them. KHH is a place for non-idols world, this place are full of talented people such as rapper, singer, producer, and many more. I was attached to SMTM (Korean Rap Survival Program). I like AOMG (Above Ordinary Music Group) and illionaire. Check them out.

Updated: One member from my favorite group decided to withdraw from group and it was so heartbreaking. He is so talented, I swear. My friends are all so sad and did not know what to say. We are clueless. Let’ s move on then. That is what I think about Kpop. Kpop is not just about just that things like fan girling, moreover, for me, it’s a place where I can find new amazing and smart friends, a place to noticed what the problem of this world, a place to share anything, non-related kpop. So, I hope those Kpop stereotype will not the same again in your side. Kpop is more classier and better than you think (well, it depends on which fandom are yours and how smart of you looking for friends) ;)

AHOK AND AL-MAIDAH ISSUE

Where do I supposed to begin? This issue was like bonfire in the forest lately. Suddenly, there was like wake-up call from Muslims all over Indonesia. They got shook when someone uploaded a video of Ahok was mocking at Al-Maidah. I may not in the position of expert to explain but here is just my opinion since I care for my religion, I need to speak up. Islam is perfect religion but not Muslims are, because whatsoever we are just a human, made mistakes, of course we did. You all know it that Al-quran is one of the Muhammad pbuh’s blessing from Allah. It means all were there is true, the law, the context, and everything show the truth. It can not be revised, not completely. Since the first time it was written, it would be the same until the last day. Also, Allah gave it to Muhammad pbuh to be delivered to his followers since he is the Messenger. Ahok was mocking at Al-quran by saying it was just a lie. Excuse me, where is the lie about the law in A-Quran. How dare you to say that such a thing! You can mock at us (muslims), blame us, or whatever but not Allah, His Angels, His prophets, or His blessings. You dare to say that thing about Al-Quran is the same way you mock at our God, the One and Only, Allah SWT. What would we supposed to do? In Islamic law, you can be qisas-ed (I do not know how to explain this but it is like a punishments for whoever committed a sin). But you are saved since Indonesia is law-based. I just warn Ahok, watch out your mouth.
Ahok already apologized to Muslims but it does not mean he would be free. No, remember Indonesia is law-based country. Each actions affect the consequences. It is not like we do not accept his apologize (of course we do) but law is law. Probably, people may see this as a common case but it’s not since it’s related to religion. You really can not take it as a joke or simple case, it’s serious case. So I hope our government will take a legal action and give Ahok punishments. And for Indonesian Muslims, I just hope we do not make a riot. Let’s just give this case to the government. If they do not do anything, we’ll do instead. We are mad, of course. If we are not mad, there is something abnormal in us.
I tried to watch Indonesia Lawyer Club program and knew that the uploader edited the video a little by removing a word (some people argue whether it effected the context or not). For me, it’s the same, that word did not really affect the context. Here is the sentence that they argued over:
“Jangan mau dibohongi Surat Al-Maidah 31 (Don’t be fooled by Al-Maidah 31)”
“Jangan mau dibohongi pake surat Al-Maidah 31 (Don’t be fooled using Al-Maidah 31)”
Do not make any differences, right? But honestly, I am so disappointed with the uploader. Why did he cut that word? It created an issue and it backfired to him right now. Maybe there are some reasons but whatever the reasons are, it was not the right thing since it could be make a huge fuss (like right now). I am not saying Ahok did it on purpose, maybe he just feel upset regarding what Muslim said about Al-Maidah 31 but he is now in the position of public figure, he should at least know how to behave in public and keep his mouth. I think everyone knew how Ahok was rude in many times.
I am also so disappointed with Muslims who defend Ahok. He apologized for some reasons, it means he knew he was wrong but they still said that Ahok was not wrong? Tell me that “lied by/using Al-Maidah” was not wrong? Are you blind or deaf? Just accept that he was wrong and good he apologized. It’s better to get the punishment now by people than later by Allah? Because it will 10000xxxx much much worse. Once again, religion is serious matter not a joke. In ILC, I was so so mad at at Nusron Wahid. He said “Only Allah and His Prophets knows the true meaning of Al-Quran.” He is such as bullshit like if, only Allah and His Prophets know the true meaning of Al-Quran, what is the purpose of Him deliver to Muhammad pbuh and people? I am so done with him, I do not know that his thought is just that low. Think! Think using your brain! I found a good video of Ust. Kahlid that clap his back. I was like “savage!” Here is the video: Click here
Once again, religion matter is SERIOUSLY IMPORTANT. If you all just keep silence, be careful because you will be judged some day about your responsibility of your religion, Islam. However, there is a lesson that we can take that is Muslims realize how important their religion is and people who do not know Al-Maidah, they seem know now but do not only read 31 verse but also the rest.
“Who doeth greater wrong than he inventeth a lie concerning Allah and denieth His revelations? Indeed, the guilty never are successful.” (10:17)

JOB FAIR

Hari ini aku pergi ke job fair, antara senang dan ngenes sih ya. Seneng karena aku merasa sih yang susah cari kerja itu banyak, nggak hanya diriku (susah seneng sama-sama kan ya). Bagaimana ya, namanya rezeki itu bisa dikatakan nggak sesuai sama teori-teori eksak. Pernah denger, “Lo pinter, pasti gampang nyari kerja.” Nggak ada yang salah memang, tapi kembali lagi bahwa ada Allah sebagai pemberi rezeki. Jadi yang merasa tidak pintar (nunjuk diri sendiri), jangan bersedih. Everything was destined kok. Itu sih, kalau aku lagi down. Pasrah memang dianjurkan sih, tapi ya sebelumnya harus diikuti dengan ikhtiar.
Ngenes, karena sedih juga lihat lulusan sarjana masih banyak yang nganggur. I feel that way, sometimes I feel envious toward my friends who already got a job. I mean, why was not it be me? Kadang pernah juga aku ngerasa jadi orang bego banget dan berpikir “Enak kali ya jadi orang pinter. Gampang cari kerja. Cepet dipanggil perusahaan, nggak usah capek2 ikut job fair.” Ya seperti itulah yang aku rasakan selama ini, agak desperate sih emang.

Dan hari ini aku mengalami hari yang bego banget pokoknya. Jadi, aku daftar ke salah satu perusahaan besar, antrenya panjang banget. Baca sekilas ada nih lowongan buat MT quality Control, aku tertarik banget kerja di bidang ini. Sejam lebih ngantre pokoknya. Setelah berhasil registrasi, lah kok hampir semua lowongannya untuk pria, kecuali satu yaitu MT Teknik Informatika. And I was like, “What a fool”. Bayangin aja ya, sudah ngantre sejam lebih, eh ternyata nggak ada yang sesuai dengan kualifikasiku. Hidup memang lucu, banyak tindakan bodoh yang tidak disadari. Intinya, selamat mencari kerja, kalau nggak ingin cari kerja ya bisa jadi pebisnis.

My Opinion about Narnia

Holaaaa, akhirnya aku post tulisan lagi. Hm… kenapa Narnia? Well, Narnia itu salah satu movie favoritku waktu kecil. Sebenarnya sekarang lagi nunggu series film keempatnya yang berjudul “The Silver Chair”. Yaa walaupun the Pervensives nggak bakal ikut lagi ;(((((.
Ok, ide tulisan ini bermula ketika beberapa minggu lalu, aku merasa bosan di kamar kos. Terus lihat folder film yang nggak aku update. Pengen lihat film baru tapi nggak ada, ya sudah daripada bosan, aku memutuskan untuk menonton kembali film Narnia yang “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.” Everything was fine until in the last scene of the film, Aslan bilang “I have another name in your world.” Well, aku nggak punya bukunya, jadi aku penasaran siapa sih Aslan. Apa dia cuma seekor singa ajaib. Mulai deh cari-cari, dan ternyata aku harus beli bukunya kalau benar-benar ingin tahu, karena reviews di google nggak terlalu detail. Dan sekarang, nyari series novel Narnia agak susah sih soalnya udah pada out of stock di beberapa toko buku. Kayaknya sih ya, ada di amazone terus book depository tapi ya harganya begitulah dan aku juga nggak punya paypal jadi ya nggak bisa beli. Akhirnya aku download versi ebooknya yang series terkahir, yaitu the Last Battle. Kenapa aku cuma download the Last Battle? Karena buku itu menurut reviews yang akan menjawab pertanyaan-pertanyaanku.
Ok, penulis Narnia adalah C. S. Lewis yang beragama Kristen. Dulu karena ilmu agamaku cethek, aku ngerasa nggak menemukan kejanggalan di film/novel ini. But now, aku baru sadar kalau banyak yang aku nggak ngerti sih di sini. Ok, ini adalah opiniku berdasarkan ilmu yang aku punya (sudut pandang Islam, jika tidak sesuai, tolong aku diberitahu). Aslan adalah makhluk illahi yang menjadi sentral karakter di novel ini. Di LWW (the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) dikisahkan jika Aslan mengorbankan diri demi Edmund yang sempat berkhianat ke saudara2nya dan Narnia. Akhirnya ia rela dibunuh oleh Jadis demi menyelamatkan Edmund. Namun akhirnya ia tetap bisa hidup. Kalau berdasarkan cerita orang Kristen, ini melambangkan Jesus (Nabi Isa di Agama Islam), iya kan? Dari sudut pandang Islam, Nabi Isa tidak meninggal namun diangkat ke langit dimana ketika Dajjal muncul, Nabi Isa kembali ke Bumi dengan menyentuh salah satu sayap Malaikat Jibril. Aku nggak tahu kalau di Injil, bagaimana ceritanya.   
Untuk Prince Caspian, ketika pertempuran ingat scene ketika para Narnians dipimpin oleh Prince Caspian menjatuhkan strategi bawah tanah (dihancurkan bagian bawah agar musuk terjatuh) sehingga para pasukan Telmarine jatuh ke bawah? Strategi mereka agak mirip nggak sih dengan Perang Khandaq? Dan ketika di Voyage and the Dawn Treader, ketika ada batas antara dunia Narnia dengan Aslan’s country digambarkan dengan laut terbelah (Ingat mukjizat Nabi Musa?). Well, karena nggak baca buku yang series ini, jadi aku nggak terlalu yakin apa memang di buku aslinya penggambarannya seperti ini atau ini hanya penggambaran di film saja. Mungkin, kemiripannya yang aku jabarkan di atas agak sedikit memaksa ya? Hahaha.
Untuk series yang terkahir, the Last Battle, yang aku baca ebooknya, benar-benar kaget sih kok ceritanya hampir sama dengan kehidupan manusia ya. I mean ketika Puzzle berpura-pura sebagai Aslan (Disuruh oleh Ape) yang notabennya adalah penguasa dunia ( I do not know how to describe it, is he a God or?). Ingat Dajjal yang berpura-pura sebagai Tuhan di akhir zaman? Dan untuk mengungkap semuanya, datanglah Nabi Isa yang akan mengungkap kebenaran dan membunuh Dajjal. Sama seperti kedatangan Jill dan Eustace untuk membantu pangeran Tirian untuk mengungkap kebohongan ape (monyet) dan puzzle (a donkey). Setelah pengungkapan itu, terjadilah kerusakan di Narnia yang akhirnya Narnia hancur. Dan hanya orang-orang dari Narnia yang baik yang bisa masuk ke Aslan’s country, termasuk para manusia yang pernah pergi ke Narnia (Uncle Diggory sampai Jill Poe, kecuali Susan). Diceritakan lalu dunia jadi gelap, matahari jatuh dan akhirnya Narnia hancur. Akhirnya mereka masuk ke dunia Aslan (Aslan’s country) which is the real Narnia yang sangat indah dan lebih besar dari Narnia dan bumi. Jadi, begini Narnia yang kita tahu selama ini, hanyalah jiplakan dari the real Narnia atau yang dikenal dengan Aslan’s country. Bumi dan the old Narnia (sebutlah seperti itu) bisa dilihat dari the real Narnia. Dijelaskan kalau “The outside is bigger than the inside” dimana ini merupakan dunia Narnia sebenarnya.
Kalau mau ditarik benang merahnya sih, Aslan’s country itu ya sebutlah surga. Kenapa? Karena hanya orang-orang baik yang bisa masuk dan mereka masuk setelah mereka mengahadapi kematian di dunia mereka. Bukankah kita bisa masuk surga setelah menghadapi kematian? Di sini, uncle Diggory dkk meninggal makanya mereka bisa masuk ke the real Narnia. Dan sempet juga digambarkan, kalau tidak salah tafsir ya soalnya aku baca yang versi Inggris dan agak susah sih soalnya bahasanya pake yang English kuno gitu. Di the real Narnia itu nggak ada rasa kayak ketakutan atau semacamnya. Di surga, setahuku dari kajian Ust. Khalid kita nggak akan pernah merasakan seperti ketika di dunia, misal lapar, haus, atau malah takut. Kita makan, karena menikmati bukan karena lapar. Jika kalian ingin tahu, cari aja di youtube kajian tentang surga oleh Ust. Khalid Basalamah. Kalau nggak salah, ada dua bagian. Digambarkan juga, kalau Aslan tidak lagi berbentuk seperti singa tapi makhluk yang tidak bisa digambarkan keindahannya (is that mean he is God based on the novel) which is sama seperti umat muslim ketika mereka masuk surga, kenikmatan terbesar adalah melihat muka Allah dimana tidak ada manusia yang tahu sebelumnya, kecuali berbentuk sinar, itupun ketika di padang Mahsyar. Ilmu ini bisa kalian dapat di kajian Ust. Khalid juga dengan judul “Kenalilah Tuhanmu, maka Engkau akan bahagia” ada dua bagian juga.  
So yeah, I do not know how to confess my feeling. Those resemblances though. Too many similarities. Ada juga kontroversi sih, masih di series yang terkahir kalau Tash (mereka juga menyebutnya sebagai Tuhan) itu sama kayak Aslan. Banyak yang berpendapat bahwa ini bermakna bahwa Tuhannya orang Kristen itu sama seperti Tuhannya umat Islam karena mereka menganggap bahwa celmarine itu umat Islam (ini masih kontroversi ya). Well, memang Tuhan itu hanya satu kok, dan itu bukan Aslan atau Tash ya. Rasanya beda sih, setelah tahu resemblances antara cerita Narnia dengan kisah umat Islam and the fact that he (C.S Lewis) is Christian/catholic. Islam tahu bahwa dunia kita hidup sekarang (bumi) hanya singgahan belaka, dunia yang sebenernya adalah ketika kita masuk surga karena kita menjadi immortal, intinya abadi. Tidak akan ada kematian lagi. Dan ini adalah tulisan di akhir buku the last battle:
“And as He spoke He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before”

REVIEW OF SMTM EPS 10

Hello, Guys. It had been such a long time since the last time I posted about SMTM5. I am sorry, I have been struggling for my undergraduate thesis. Ok, I am about to review the final episode. As I said in the previous episode that there were three teams that went to the final, which were AOMG (Bewhy), YG (Cjamm), and illionaire (Superbee). I am jumping off to the performance now since the story background are long enough. It was started short introduction by each finalist. Bewhy came out with Forever (the best of SMTM5, in my opinion), then Superbee came out with Air DotheQ (first team song performance). Next was Cjamm with his lyrics in 60 second mission round.
First performance was Superbee. To be honest, I never expected he would appear in the final but he did so I am proud. I think he came from rich family, hahaha. I am sorry Superbee but your ahbeoji (dad) looks more handsome. Hahaha, another unnecessary thing. He performed Air to theQ pt. 2 with illionaire. Ugh, I really really like Dok2’s rapping. He is one of the best rapper in South Korea. Superbee was good, he improved. As a whole, I like this performance but Dok2 was just the best among the three and help Superbee in performance.
The second performance was Cjamm. Cjamm is Cjamm anyway, he was so chill. This song was Cjamm’s style. He started with that chill rap style but end up went strong and hard. It was so good performance. The stage was on fire and lit. Anyway there was something I do not understand, what did Kush do there? He was just like shouting “Oh….Oh…” yeah something like that. I can’t stop laughing.
Next was Bewhy from AOMG. He performed with Simon Dominic. This song called XamBaqJa that was produced by Bewhy himself. He is so well-rounded. However this song does not suit Ssamd at all, it has Bewhy’s style. I can’t stop laughing at Ssamd. Hahaha. The stage was so good also. Overall, my rank for those performances are Cjamm > Bewhy > Superbee. Round 1 has finished. Bewhy came out first, then Cjamm, and Supebee that means Superbee was eliminated. He cried, nooo please Superbee don’t cry. FYI, he is 22 yo, the same age as me but he can reach this level by getting into the final of SMTM5. You know how hard being into SMTM5, if you did tiny mistakes, Knet (Korean Netizen) can bash you for the rest of your life. I am so proud of Superbee.
Second round started with Cjamm feat. Crush. OMG Crush’s voice though. Compared to his first performance, this performance was more calm and I like it better. And I like the song itself. Then was Bewhy. He still produced hiw own song called “Fake”. Fake sounds kinda like religious song. When I read the lyrics, yes I was true. The lyrics were so so deep. “God makes no mistakes”. I mean he is beyond my expectations. When others rapper made lyrics with “I am the best… bla bla” kinda like self-praiseness but Bewhy came out differently. And he has that rap sty;e that went straight to the well-delivered lyrics. Hm…. I do not know how to describe it. For me, both were good. I can’t choose who is the better one. But Bewhy’s performance remain the light spot tiny point in my heart. There was performance by eliminated contestants, Flowsik, Taewon, Boi B, G2, and Hash Swan. G2’s rap was so so good and he did not forget his lyrics. Im happy ;) I like SMTM5 squads a lot.
Finally, the announcement was about to be shouted out. Dung dung dung. Yesssss AOMG team won. Congratulation Bewhy. Well-deserved. He was the winner form the start. Hahaha, joking. I mean he got all the attention, loves from people. Yes he did. He not only won over people’s attention but he is also really good rapper. While some other contestants brought such big names in featuring stage, listen, Bewhy ONLY got his own producer (Simon Dominic and Gray) and another AOMG CEO aka Jay Park. He shined by his own, not by others. People voted him because he is good, not because the idols brought (Yes, I am in shading mode). Please clap for Bewhy. One more thing, he did not follow what trend is right now like dabbing. No, he is being himself, that rap style of straight up. He is. Congratulation Bewhy, I am going to miss your performance a lot. And Im going to miss SMTM5 soooo much, this season is so good.

REVIEW OF SMTM5 EPS 9

Hello, everyone. I am going to review SMTM eps 9. Sigh. Time flies so quick, does not it? I feel just tomorrow to start review this show, but now it’s up to eps 9 which is going to end in one more eps. I cant lie that I am still bitter and salty about Flowsik’s elimination. But move on. Ok, do yall still remembers who are the rappers would still left remain? There are six rappers remain, three out of them are from YG team. They are Xitsuh, Cjamm, Reddy, Superbee, Gun, and Bewhy. Next, AOMG team must choose one rapper from YG to against with. Everyone be like “He will choose Cjamm”. Hm...... Are you sure? Bewhy is not that dumb to against Cjamm, he chooses rapper who can he beat obviously. Lol. Final is ahead, why would he choose a strong opponent for rating? He chooses Reddy in the end. In others side, Superbee chooses Chulgu that it means Gun must compete with Cjamm. Arghhh poor Gun, how come he beat Cjamm? The level are a far different though. I bet Cjamm has already prepared for the final.
Firstly, the rapper can go with featuring. Lol, I already known how YG teams would work. Of course, they are gonna invite “big idol”. Watch my words as if invite Mino is not enough. Sorry to say this but I hope YG team STOP bringing popular idols like please let your rappers shine. It would be backfired if the feat idol/artist dominates more than the actual “actor” here. And lol as expected of YG, they brings Zico. Must they go that hard to compete with Gun? Lol. While MadGill is bringing Jessi. In rehearsal, Gun is awkward because Jessi is on the screen instead of being there with him. Of course he does not know how to act on stage when the featuring artist is not coming. It’s time to perform with a song called “Asshole” by Gun feat. Jessi. I love the song already, Jessi is goot at singing. Plus Gun’s rapping is good here. He does not need to scream but rap straightly. Eventhough his rapping is good, but I think compared to Cjamm, his rapping is not that threatened. Jessi’s part is so addicting. He looks so much much better than the rehearsal. I am so so proud of Gun, really. Having been in semifinal is a big achievement from him, I mean with that kind ability of rapping, it is like surprising. Ok, next is Cjamm feat. Zico. Yeah Zico, the best idol rapper out there. Yeah the song is good, but surprisingly, Cjamm is messing up his lyrics. I cant believe Cjamm makes mistake. Hm... Would it be turned out? Stay tunes. Honestly, Zico is just too good I mean he is kinda outshines Cjamm. But Cjamm is Cjamm anyway.
Next is Chulgu vs Superbee. Oh I am so surprised that Chulgu is actually a smart student. He used to study in America and he had almost perfect marks. Wow, I am speechless.I think he comes from rich family, judged from the TV ok. Then suddenly I want Xitsuh to win. What in the world? He is featuring with Suran with a song called “And”. Hm.... I am sorry Xitsuh, there is no special thing about his performance. His rap is average-level and he performs a sad performance. So, I do not expet anything. It feels boring, I am sorry Xitsuh. Superbee is performing now, he invites Mikrodot (Sanchez’s younger brother). When I watched his reherseal, I was like “Cuteee” Hahaha, the intro is so cute. I swear the intro is so cute, he wears a dolphin hat and he is dabbing. OMG, stop this trend dabbing thingy. But then, a strong song appears. Wow, so cool. I say this, Mikrodot is good performer, like Zico is. He can hype up the audiences. It’s lit.
Next is Reddy vs Bewhy. Of course, YG brings another idol which is Bobby. Hahahahaha. Not surprising tho. Ok, I will staright up to the performance. Bewhy starts with playing piano from his song “The time goes on”. Omo omo, it’s so beautiful. Bewhy is so talented. Go Bewhy Go Bewhy. Tbh, I love Ssamd’s reaction. It’s gold. Hahaha. Am I too biased? His song “Day-Day” is that type of catchy song with Jay Park featuring (AOMG’s CEO and SMTM4 producer). I am sorry but he looks awkward by doing this. Bewhy suits a type of serious and strong song like the previous eps with Forever. Ok, next is Reddy performance. It is actually strong rap feat Bobby. Hm... the stage is lit. Just it. Based on rapping, Bewhy >>>> Reddy. Now is time to reveal the result. Cjamm wins over Gun with a little different amount of money. It’s a big achievement of Gun though, I mean Kush said it would be a history of big different amount of money but it turns out to be this small. Good job, Gun. Gun is eliminated, that means the producers are also eliminated. Superbee wins over Xitsuh, it’s so obviously though, judged from the performance. It’s ok Xitsuh, you are improving so much. I am also proud of you. Ok, dung dung Reddy vs Bewhy result. Oh my God, the different tho. I am so so surpised. Bewhy 1st round earnings is 4.475.000 won while Reddy is only 225.000 won. And the final round Bewhy earns totally 7.550.000 won while Reddy is 1.825.000. Wow, such a big different. I mean wow, I know Bewhy is so so popular but it does not make any sense that Reddy loses with that much different. Reddy, you have worked really hard. The final lines up contestants are Bewhy, Superbee and Cjamm. Can not wait for the final. Go Bewhy.
