The much-touted “F4 Special Edition” music drama, which follows up with the F4 boys five years after the end of the drama, was finally released online on April 28 — but only the first half (or two “episodes”). The second half comes out next week.
Each F4 member gets his own “episode,” and first two feature Kim Bum’s Yi-jung character and Kim Joon’s Woo-bin.
The music drama features a total of nine songs, some of which were sung by the actors themselves, like Kim Hyun-joong’s “Thing Called Happiness” (행복이란), Kim Bum’s “I’m Going to Meet You Now” (지금 만나러 갑니다), and Kim Joon’s “To Make Empty” (비워내기).
Yi-jung’s segment (above) opens with narration by Woo-bin, and the song featured throughout is Kim Bum’s song — I’m actually quite impressed with the vocals. I’m less impressed with how so much of the footage is old clips from the series.
Woo-bin: “Are there things that don’t change even after time has passed? How many springs have come to our school full of memories? And our special classroom — it’s here that we began our friendships and loves. Gu Jun-pyo, Yoon Ji-hoo, So Yi-jung, Song Woo-bin, F4.”
The voice at the end asks: “Sunbae. I’m a little late, aren’t I?”
Yi-jung asks, “Will you be my flower forever?”
Episode 2 (Woo-bin):
woo bin's episode
In this segment, Woo-bin starts by asking, “What’s your reason?” The girl tells him, “I’m tired of your consideration.” (It insinuates that she feels suffocated by his constant attention, like he’s hovering.)
The song here features lyrics written by Kim Joon and rapper Rhymer. The title “To Make Empty” refers to emptying oneself of the pain following a failed love.

The first step is to remove some of the gutta percha that was used to seal one or more of the root canals in the tooth. Then, using a series of graduated rasps, the inside of the canals are enlarged and shaped to receive a specially made metal or metal-free "post" that exactly fits the hole made by the last rasp. These posts are usually pre-manufactured and come in many different shapes. The post is then cemented in the hole so that it is firmly embedded in the root of the tooth, and projects up above the level of the gums in order to help retain a filling that will be placed over it.

It has been a couple of days since the shock and awe wore off of the American Idol Season 8 Finals. As most fans and even work force water cooler hall monitors know Kris Allen received more of the 100 Millions fan votes than Heir Apparent Adam Lambert to take this years American Idol Crown.
Did Idol get it right? No, not only no, Hell No.
Kris Allen has talent, He did well, should he have won. NO, Nadda, Nein, Nope. If you saw the reaction of Simon Cowell, sitting in his seat as the announcement of Kris became official and the rest of the judges giving a standing ovation, you would know as well that Idol Did Not get it right. Simon Cowell’s reaction and steadfast actions spoke volumes. The night before Simon Cowell declared Adam Lambert the winner in his own words and judgment.
Was this the straw that broke the Lambert sweeping of the Finals? Was it the Vote for the Worst crowd, or was it the potential homophobia about Adam Lambert’s sexuality that reduced his vote total? Or does the conspiracy go deeper than this?
Do our votes even get counted or considered? Do the powers that be at Simon Fuller’s 19 Management make the decisions regardless of the millions of text messages and 1-866 number call ins? According to TV.com story they are suggesting that Kris Allen’s win was a business decision.
Granted Adam Lambert has millions of fans that will support his efforts and is destined to be a significant star based upon his talent. Kris Allen could only go so far without the Idol Title. Controversy has never been a negative for American Idol. It seems to create it, welcome it, and thrive by it every year.
Conspiracy theorists , Illuminati, Free Mason and the Smoking Man from the former X-files show, must sit down at the beginning of the season an Plot their Controversy. Controversy sells, Controversy keeps people talking, writing, and keeping the Idol machine rolling.
Is it a bad thing? Hell Yes. How many times will American get slapped in the face before finally turning away instead of turning the other cheek? We as fans were taken aback when Chris Daughtry was booted in the Final forth round in Season 5. We crawled back and took the forgettable season 6 as Melinda Doolittle left American Idol in the 3rd spot. We watched as ringers with former recording contracts and albums invaded season 7. We saw the travesty of a mockery of a shame results this year.
Will we be back? Yes. Because we love this crap. We talk about this crap, and this crap pays the bills ( thank you sponsors). But are we truly happy with this years results?

What terrifying discovery would make the Vatican turn to Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks), the man who cracked history's most controversial code? When Langdon finds evidence of the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati—the most powerful underground organization in history—he also faces a deadly threat to the existence of the Illuminati's most despised enemy: the Catholic Church.
Upon learning that the clock is ticking on an unstoppable Illuminati time bomb, Langdon is recruited to travel to Rome, where he joins forces with Vittoria Vetra (Ayelet Zurer), a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist. Embarking on a nonstop, action-packed hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even to the heart of the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra will follow the 400-year-old Path of Illumination that marks the Vatican's only hope for survival.

Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to ill-fitting dentures or bridgework.
How the surgery is performed depends on the type of implant and the condition of your jawbone. But all dental implant surgery occurs in stages and involves several procedures. The entire process can take many months.
Although most adults are candidates for the procedure, dental implant surgery is expensive and often not covered by insurance. Still, if you have difficulty eating or talking or simply want better looking teeth you may find that dental implant surgery is well worth the time and expense.
In general, dental implants may be right for you if you:
* Have one or more missing teeth
* Have a jawbone that's reached full growth
* Have adequate bone to secure the implants, or are able to have a bone graft
* Have healthy oral tissues
* Don't have health conditions that will affect bone healing
* Are unable or unwilling to wear dentures
* Want to improve your speech
* Are willing to commit several months to the process
Like any surgery, dental implant surgery poses some health risks. Problems are rare, though, and when they do occur they're usually minor and easily treated. Risks include:
* Infection at the implant site
* Injury or damage to surrounding structures, such as other teeth or blood vessels
* Nerve damage, which can cause pain, numbness or tingling in your natural teeth,
gums, lips or chin
* Sinus problems, when dental implants placed in the upper jaw protrude into one of
your sinus cavities
HOW YOU PREPARE?
To start, you have a comprehensive dental exam. This may include taking dental X-rays and making models of your mouth. In addition, be sure to talk to your doctor about any medical conditions you have and any medications you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medications and supplements.
If you have certain heart conditions or orthopedic implants, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics before surgery to help prevent infection.
A treatment plan is tailored to your particular situation. This plan takes into account such factors as how many teeth must be replaced and the condition of your jawbone. This planning process may involve a variety of dental specialists, including:
* An oral and maxillofacial surgeon, a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and
treatment of injuries, diseases and other problems of the mouth, jaw and face
* A periodontist, a dentist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of
structures that support the teeth
* A prosthodontist, a dentist who specializes in making and fitting artificial
replacements for missing or damaged teeth
Most dental implants are successful. Sometimes, however, the bone fails to fuse sufficiently to the metal implant. In that case, the implant is removed, the bone is cleaned up, and you can try the procedure again in a month or two.
You can help your dental work — and remaining natural teeth — last longer if you:
* Practice exceptional oral hygiene.
Just as with your natural teeth, implants, artificial teeth and gum tissue must be
kept clean. Specially designed brushes, such as an interdental brush that slides
between teeth, can help clean the nooks and crannies around teeth, gums and metal
* See your dentist regularly.
Schedule dental checkups every six months to one year to ensure the health and
proper functioning of your implants.
* Avoid damaging habits.
Don't chew hard items, such as ice and hard candy, which can break your crowns —
or your natural teeth. Avoid tooth-staining tobacco and caffeine products. Get
treatment if you grind your teeth.

But while they men appeared excited about their upcoming hometown journeys, the competition will heat up. Seacrest announced the contenders will face another “Idol” tradition – having one of the two songs they will perform next week chosen by the judges.

Pernahkah kau bicara
Tapi tak di dengar
Tak di anggap

Pernahkan kau tak salah
Tak di beri
Kuhidup dengan siapa
Ku tak tau kau siapa
Kau kekasihku tapi
Orang lain bagiku
Kau dengan dirimu saja
Kau dengan duniamu saja
Teruskan lah.. Teruskan lah
Kau tak butuh diriku
Aku patung bagimu
Back to reff.
Kau dengan dirimu saja
Kau dengan duniamu saja
Teruskan lah.. Teruskan lah
Kau.. kau begitu
Teruskan lah… teruskan lah..
