Kang Gary (Leessang) - Running Man

Have been watching Running Man for the past few weeks. I'm totally addicted and more importantly impressed by the production team on how they designed the games and put in effort in making the show as entertaining as possible. When I first watch Running Man on TV, I thought it is a cruel game because I saw fear in member's faces when they were being hunt, especially on 1:9 game where 9 people chasing for one player. To think of that fear within, it makes my adrenaline rush.

As I watch more and more episodes, it changed my mindset and I feel like each episode is like a challenge for members, or more often challenge for humans. How do you intelligently play in the games and you breakthrough your limit each time. The variety of games amazed me. Sometimes those games really made me speechless when PD introduce it, like mission impossible, it seems no way to succeed. But again, running man made it! Whatever challenges it is, they unite and conquer their fear and challenge the mission! Really have to salute them on this, especially when you see they always do their best in every mission.


I get to see more and more sides of each member, their strength and weaknesses in playing different games, their characters and personalities, their friendship and the strong bonding within this family. I'm totally amazed by how they are supporting each other everyday in every way they could. Just to think how beautiful it is of human relationship and interaction, we all live in this world surrounding by our circles of friends and families. We too, need to be supported by people surrounding us and will support them in every way that we could. When I see how they intelligently plan out their strategies in winning games,  I just feel like seeing how we are surviving in this society. You have partners, have your own missions, you switch partners with the ultimate goal in your mind, you trust your partners, you reasonably suspect your partners or sometimes you just have to work alone (especially when you are spy haha). And out of the games, we are all one family and we support each other lives.

And of course, it makes me interested in understanding more about running man members. Kang Gary has drawn my attention the most! I like the peacefulness in him, or perhaps I should say the way he live life with his principles. He is always humble and doing his best in playing games. When he promise someone, he will not betray even though he knew his partner might betray him. He admit his fear and he said that is the only time you can really be brave. And of course, he doesn't tell lies (The truman show just came into my mind, hilarious! if you do know what I mean haha!). Perhaps he looks innocent at times, but you will see the reason behind it if you get to know the more of him. He play hard for winning but the result of winning or losing is not the most important thing for him, the process is more important as long as he did his best. And of course, he never fails to make audience laugh whenever the camera catch him!



Gary further rocks my world with his music and perhaps his life, as he always say, his music is about his life and people around him. His powerful lyrics and Leessang amazing music never fails to stun my mind. Like one of the netizens described , "Their songs are neither melodramatic nor hyperactive. It's the kind that you will jump to, nod your head or to wave your hand to. There is always an erratic mixture of feelings. It pushes you up with their beats but they break you apart with their lyrics. They cradle you with their soft tune but fire you up with their angry words. Their songs talk about love but subliminally scream about the rotting popular culture. They beat their chest with their success only to highlight their failures". And I really have to agree to this one particular paragraph, "Listening to their albums is like a trip to a weightless dimension. They will pull your body and mind to different directions and you are helpless about it. It's the cleanest high you will ever experience".


I'm not sure whether he is the same in real life as he is in Running Man and in doing his music, but one thing I'm sure of, he have my respect from these two aspects, especially his passion and effort that he put into his career. Hope Leessang and Gary continue to produce more good music and continue to touch more lives, bring laughter to more people and show us more of the stories of their lives!




As I'm writing this today, Leessang is having US concert in New York and LA! Wish them a great success for the concert. And finally, their new single Tears, ft Eugene from THE SEEYA is released today!!! Just a too good song, can't stop replaying it and the lyrics totally blown my mind. Hope you guys enjoy it!

After you left, I’m always sad
No matter how sad I am, 
the sadness is not enough
I look for a place to hurt and hide
In front of my dark house, in my stopped car, 
in front of your house
A life without love is like poverty, 
the only thing remaining is an empty room
You and I, we’re like day and night, 
which cannot be together
The only thing we split and shared is longing
You get drunk one night, come to me and 
fuss that you’re gonna sleep with me
You touch my happy trail and say 
that you wanna lay down in my arms
You ask me why I’m always so busy and silently cry
You say didn’t mean it and 
that you always believe me
You and everything of you that always protected me
Has now become longing
[Gil]
Alone between narrow streets in tears
In case someone sees, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
[Eugene]
Sit alone on the stairs in front of my house in tears
In case you find out, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
[Gary]
We have bad attachments rather than good attachments^
We fight all the time and go for days without seeing each other
But we wanted each other so much
Because we loved each other, 
because we couldn’t live without each other
The freckles on your body, the food you can’t eat
When we kiss and made up after fighting
When we tightly held hands while driving
I remember all of those things
Even if you’re not next to me for a moment, I get nervous
After letting you go, I easily get blank
I hate the changing world
I forcefully take out your memories
Your name, face, laughter, scent
There are so many memories you gave to me
There is so much soul that you left to me
They come to life and find to me
I crush them all with the word, love
[Gil]
Alone between narrow streets in tears
In case someone sees, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
[Eugene]
Sit alone on the stairs in front of my house in tears
In case you find out, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
[Eugene]
My tears, tears, tears
Once again tears, tears, tears
Again silently – I don’t wanna know
It smears my memories
[Gil]
Alone between narrow streets in tears
In case someone sees, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
[Eugene]
Sit alone on the stairs in front of my house in tears
In case you find out, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears

安息

昨晚,我很早就睡了。一整天的劳碌加上那不胜负荷的压力,我只想在睡觉的那几个小时里好好休息一下。

早上一觉醒来,看到电话里传来好友离世的消息,我整个人傻了。突然一种情绪涌上心头,像是一把刀割下了心里的一块肉。我正要送妹妹去上学,还没来得及定下心,就这样恍恍惚惚的驾着车送他去上学。一路上,脑海里涌出我和这位朋友碰过面的场合,心情痛至一个顶点。

他是我的中学同学,和我一起毕业。我们虽然不是属于同一个生活圈子,但我常常听到他的消息,因为我死党的男友和他是死党。我们大家都念一个学校,各自圈子的关系很好,所以毕业后虽然分开在不一样的地方生活,却还是十分了解大家的动态,只是少了碰面。在我印象中,他是我见过拥有最灿烂笑容的男生,我没有看过听过他生气难过,常常听到的都是他搞笑的梗,恶作剧的嬉闹,和朋友们之间的友谊之事。他还是个钢琴才子,也是个超级足球员。眼下传来的这个噩耗,我真的接受不了。我上了面子书,满满都是他的消息,原来他正在想转工。脑子里浮现我们到机场去接他,那时他刚从台湾旅行回来,也是我们最后一次见面。是不是“长大”也包括要学习如何面对周遭的人会随时离你而去?那是我,还没长大吗?

我常常说,不要在乎现在发生的小事,十年二十年后回头再看这些事,它们只会像红豆般大小,微不足道。我只是想说,对于眼前的某些事不要太过执着,要自我鼓励,该放手的时候要懂得放手,毕竟我们还要继续生活。可是现在,我仿佛觉得事无大小,每一件眼前的事,我们都应该把它做好,哪怕他只是微微生气,我也应该立刻道歉,我真的不知道下一秒钟会发生什么事,更别说等十年二十年才得到释怀。

或许人生就是要从这两端去找到平衡点。在展望未来的同时,我们也应该珍惜当下的所有,做每一件事都要全力以赴,但也不要对于眼前的事太过于执着,要放得开,凡事问心无愧,决定了就不要后悔。

--- 因为人生没有重来。

因为上帝有祂为我们计划的人生。我们不知道未来会是怎么样,唯有将当下的事做好,并走在祂的道上。祂会成为我们脚前的明灯,时刻与我们同在,指引我们每一天的人生。愿主你带他回到天家安息,并与他的家人朋友同在,让他们度过这艰难的时刻。阿门。

复杂

新的一年开始了,抱着满怀希望的心情踏入2013年。还是有很多的愿望,或者说更多对2012年的不舍,让心情有点闷闷的。女人啊!多么的复杂!

十二月是很愉快的一个月。因为朋友们都在放假,可以逛街下午茶,晚上聊天吃宵夜。圣诞节更是十二月的重头戏,一整年最快乐的一天。这一次的圣诞节很不一样,和朋友到一间西式餐厅享用圣诞晚餐。我和他一时兴起,决定办个抽奖游戏,忙了一个下午挑礼物,包礼物,写提示。哈哈!忙得不亦乐乎也~ 。看见朋友们抽奖和打开礼物的那一刹那,我们都笑翻了!十二月三十一号的这一天,我们集体大飙歌,唱k到凌晨3点,一起倒数欢庆2013!大家都特别珍惜这一天,因为我们在不同的地方生活,一年只能聚在一起好几次,所以玩得更尽兴。(我想说,有你们,真好!)

十二月对我来说好像梦境,可以放肆的玩,在家人的陪伴过每一天,在爱人身边撒撒娇。每一天都特别珍惜,因为过了,又要开始一年的努力才能再等到明年十二月。这么说吧,我这个人很会在不自觉地情况下给自己很大的压力,常常觉得生活忙得快喘不过气。虽说忙得很开心,但有时还是会因为压力很大,而且没有发泄管道而感到心情低落。特别在离开家的时候,心情真的是糟到不行。是啊!长大了,离家那么久了还是会这样的不舍。

这几天刚好就是离家的时候,所以心情有些复杂。其实很久没有积极的魄力了,这是干吗呀?!我还想不出个所以然。难道是为了即将正式工作而烦恼,还是因为现在的工作而不开心?又或者因为太多事情想完成,还是因为太多事情还没完成?这几天驾着车,脑海里都在盘旋着这几件事。当然还有很多事情,揪着这颗心,让人有种要窒息的感觉。我知道我能负荷,也知道我该怎么做,但就是差个什么劲儿,心情一直徘徊在谷底。

现在的我,只想到海边吹吹风,躺在那片沙滩上,望着那片属于我们的天空。
