Watch the MV *here*

The I L♥VE ASIA project is a collaboration between JYP and Jackie Chan to help the victims of the Sichuan earthquake in China. I thought the song was really touching and inspiring.  The MV mostly shows the singers, but theres some clips of the of the earthquake and its really really sad. I put the translations below the cut.

I’m not really familiar with my Korean singers, cuz I’m mostly into boybands lol. But I was surprised cuz I recognised most of the artistes that contributed, which means most of them are pretty much A list stars XDDDDD

And Jackie Chan did sing Korean (1.30min) which sounded a bit funny to me, but hey its Jackie Chan and I LOVE THAT MAN!!! His soooo awesome ♥♥ And since I’m completely biased, Dongwan sings and looks really hot in the “I L♥VE ASIA” shirt at 1.44. Followed by Kim Ah Joong, which is the actress in 200 Pounds Beauty. If you havent watched the movie, you should try it out, it was actually pretty good. For some reason she didn’t sound that good here, but I’ve heard better from her. Then OMG  Hyesung *_* does an amazing job starting at 2.02 <3333 Followed by Son Ho Young, then Kim Tae Hee (which is an awesome actress cuz she made me completely HATE HER in Stairway to Heaven , cuz she was the evil girl haha). Although they dont have individual scenes, you can see in the group scenes that theres also Wonder Girls, Battle and some other artistes…

  1. I SEE BAE SEUL GI <333

  2. I’ve had the hugest crush on Jackie Chan since..i was little XD

    These lyrics are just so touching.
    I still think about the earthquake really hard.
    It just hits me really hard.

    I’m so glad there doing this, a lot of stars are doing things like this and donating.

    Thanks for the link!!

  3. Hey I havent been in here since who knows!
    Thanks for the link..
    Really touching T__T

    But I cant help but fangirl on Jackie at times XD I LOVE THAT GUY 8D, and so does my mum..

    And this song completely moved me to add “I L♥VE ASIA” in my msn name : DDD

  4. Hum…………………..
    I like this MV. When it comes to this kind of MV, I realised that people come together in the time of need.
    thanks. ^^

  5. jelly baby
    Funny that you mentioned Bae Seul Gi cuz my friend was just fanboying her this morning when he watched her “One More Time” Special Stage performance hahaha.. She’s soooo pretty and I loved her in Love Letter <333

    Lol thats soo cute..I dont really have a huge crush on Jackie, but I really really like him cuz he seems soo nice and funny XD Yea, the earthquake affected alot of people. All we can do is hope and pray for the victims and their family <3

    Awww thats so sweet of you to put “I L♥VE ASIA” on your msn *gives you a lolly* haha and yes I think everyone has a little bit of Jackie Chan love in their body cuz his so awesome XDD

    My pleasure, glad you liked it XD I really like these MV’s too cuz its really touching <33 I hope they can raise alot of money to help the victims.

  6. Lol, I watched it before I read your post, and when i got to 1:44, I didn’t recognise Dongwan *fails* and though, omg that guy has such a good voice XD Nothing against Dongwan though, cos I didn’t recognise Heysung, either XDDDD

    I think it’s REALLY REALLY AWESOME of JYP to do this for the Chinese people affected by the earthquake, he just earned himself some major brownie points ^__^

    I want to buy one of those t-shirts….

  7. ^ LOL I think I should give you more Dongwan clips to watch =PPPP I mean, you gotta be able to recognise my future husband cuz what if I end up inviting you to my wedding HAHAHA XDDDDD But YESH!! His voice is love <333

    OMG I want one of those shirts too!! Except Im not sure where I would wear it cuz if my friends saw it, they would probably give me a never ending lecture on what clothes you should and shouldnt wear =_=

    I think JYP, Jackie Chan and all the artistes who participated deserve brownie points, except of course Dongwan, cuz he deserves a big kiss and hug from me hehe

  8. I definitely go to you and Dongwan’s wedding, cos then I could chat up Hyesung XDDD

    Lol, my friends are used to me and my weird shirts. I always wear a shirt that says “I <3 Me” which looks the same as the “I <3 NY” ones, same font/colour and everything XDDD

    The girls in this sounded really good, like my girl Sunye <3333 I’m gonna go look up Battle now…

  9. I’ll marry Bae Seul Gi then ^^
    LOL JKS. I just wanna be cool and join in this convo 8D
