Have You Listened To Them Yet?: [25th Aug – 13th Sept 2014]

It’s been a sad week as shocking news of Ladies’ Code’s tragic accident overcomes Korea’s entertainment industry. Although I wasn’t a fan of LC, I’ve seen Ri Se in Running Man and grew fond of her. Sigh. RIP EunB(i) and Rise. And to the remaining members Ashley, So Jeong and Zuny, stay strong!

As a tribute to the girls, ‘I’m Fine Thank You’ rose to the top of various charts (see here), mnet and KBS both broadcasted videos in memory of EunB(i) and Rise.

My belated condolences to EunB(i) and Ri Se.

By the way, this link here is for those who wish to look at (almost) every song that came out in each week. Since I don’t like EVERY song that comes out, I thought the Soompi tag should reflect a better picture of the releases. 😀 Two other links here may help too: LINK #1 , LINK #2

Songs I Like and Would Like to Recommend

One would have to be living under a real rock to not know EXID (or member Ha Ni) and their hit ‘Up And Down’. The Hip-Hop Dance track has a ‘strong saxophone melody and catchy hook’ and was already big on variety shows before this review (obviously..). (SBS Running Man and KBS 2D1N to name a few.) The part played most on such shows was the hook. But the 2-part chorus sung by Hye Rin and Sol Ji? Awesome! Click title to read more comfortably or click to continue

After around 2 months of news, Winner finally introduces themselves through their first photo album <2014 S/S> – a rare sight for a new group upon debut. Heading their entrance into the industry are ‘Empty’ and ‘Color Ring’. The former is a low-tempo Rock-Pop Ballad and a collaborative project by Winner and Team B/Ikon, and PK. ‘Empty’ is a stunningly hypnotic track. The only thing that mercilessly drove me back to reality was the abrupt cut at the end.  The MV not only accurately reinforces the ‘empty’ feeling, the director also did a great job with the editing and member introduction.

Parc Jae Jeong (or Park Jae Jeong) hits all the right notes on his <First Step>. The dramatic Soul Jazz ‘Stalker’ (At First Sight, The Platonix Remix) is a super sick rendition of the (livelier Jazzier) original piece that Parc (or Park) sang for Superstar K5. What’s even more genius, is the twisted perspective of the original title and its creepy monochrome MV. (I freaked out when I saw him chopping something…only it turned out to be a carrot he was chopping. LOL. In short, there’s nothing to be scared of. Except that tattoo girl who shocks rather than frightens.) Click title to read more comfortably or click to continue

Ballad quartet Tritops sings a mid-tempo Ballad for <Golden Cross>. Somewhat typical, but the chorus and Tritops’s vocals (<3) are excellent together. Interested in Tritops?

IU explores some of Korea’s top oldies in her nostalgic album. My favourite remake is Cho Deok Bae’s ‘My Old Story’, to which IU gives a dreamy, delicate touch while keeping the vintage sound. (Lol, I didn’t even recognise the MV’s actor – Choi Woo Shik >.< Oh and I liked what IU wore too.)  Regardless, it is a sweet thing she’s doing, and I can’t deny that the songs were well produced. Here’s the full album link (Credits to Ximee w009)
