Book club

I've just finished reading a brilliant, quiet, but in its way brutal and chilling novel, Thomas A. Savage's "The Power of the Dog."

Sometimes info on Amazon serves you better than leafing through the items in a bricks-and-mortar bookstore.  (I've always found that I'd need to read for a bit longer than I realistically have, in order to decide whether I like an item or not.)  In this case, what put me onto it was seeing on the website that Savage had said his favorite novel was "Mrs. Bridge," by Evan Connell.  That novel, too, though in an entirely different way, is quiet yet in its way brutal and chilling.  Both are startlingly and yet unobtrusively well-written.

Obviously, both very highly recommended.

BEAST Yang Yoseob has shed tears during the recordings of “Hello”.

A representative from KBS2 “Hello” had revealed on the 14th of August, that Beast were invited as special guests on “Hello”. During the recordings, BEAST member Yang Yoseob, shed tears when talking about dreams to be singers.

According to that representative, “When aspiring singers talked about their singing dreams, and how it’s hard to chase them and expressed their sad thoughts of giving this dream up, Yang Yoseob was seen choking with tears”. Yang Yoseob was also a singer who faced many setbacks before he managed to debut. Because of this, he could understand the feelings of those who aspires to be singers, hence the tears.

Yang Yoseob even had times where he wanted to give up on his dreams, but he held on and came to his current agency with Lee Kikwang. Eventually, he became a part of BEAST.

It was also reported that BEAST officials couldn’t hide their surprise when they heard that the usual-manly Yoseob cried during the recording process.
