K-Songs So Far: [1st – 20th Nov 2013]

Disclaimer: All posts are just containing my OPINION. I don’t mean to offend. I mean to give only my honest feedback. Also, I do not listen to every song, although I try to. (I might have missed them or the site may not have posted on it. The ‘Discovered’ section exists for this reason.)

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. 😀 Another link here may help too: LINK

From this post onwards, my source should permanently be from Soompi.

Songs I Like and Would Like to Recommend

1. Soloist Sameul Seo sings, raps and produces(!!!) in his English-Korean debut(?) hip-hop album ‘Welcome To My Zone’ (His songs are extremely hard to find prior to this post.). He makes me think of One Ok Rock with his smooth transition between the two languages. Overall, I found myself liking the singing parts of his songs most of the time. 😛 Title track ‘The Pink Room(feat 2Tak)’ is a laid-back hip-hop song. It has this classy sound to it that’s pretty addicting. 🙂 ‘Enough Said’ reminds me of E-Sens ‘Poison’ because both have this contemplative, poignant vibe. ‘Die For Today’ is a beautiful ballad. I didn’t really like the rap but I thoroughly enjoyed the singing parts. ‘Everyday’s The Same(featuring Jin Sol)’ is more the typical kind of hip-hop song listeners are used to, especially with respect to the rap. ‘White Noise’ has nice offbeat…beats (heh) that goes well with the lazy(?) singing. This time, the rap is just nice. 😀 ‘The Hall (feat Jayho) [interlude]’ is nothing really special but the singing parts are my favourite. Heh. I think ’11PM Birthday(feat Qim Isle)’ is not too bad IMO. ‘Aqua(feat Nucksal)’ is definitely not mainstream music. There isn’t a certain melody structure to ‘get into’ easily, so it does take effort to like, me included. Also, the quotes in the song are interesting. ‘With No Exit(feat #WM)’ is a sexy Hip-hop RnB track. Really love it.  Click title to read more comfortably or click to continue

1.IU returns with her third album. On the whole, there were some songs I liked and some I wasn’t too fond of. Nonetheless, a decent comeback. Title song, ‘Red Shoes’ wasn’t my cup of tea. ‘Love of B’ was better but still not really something I’m looking for. ‘Modern Times’ was a little bit too immature for me. ‘Obliviate’ was not too bad. ‘Havanah’ too but it’s a bit too cute and falsetto-ish(I’m picky about its use) for me. ‘Wait’ is a song in which IU only starts singing around the 1:41 mark. The instrumentals are fantastic but I didn’t like the way she sung the song. It suits the instrumentals, yes. But I never appreciated cutesy vocals. Also, the way she always tends to sing in the falsetto range is getting boring for me. 😛My favourites are ‘Everyone Has Secrets’ (It’s got this exciting, sexy tone to the song. It’s great that Ga In sets the tone first with her husky voice that’s so suitable for such songs.),

K-Songs So Far: 16th – 30th Sept 2013

Sorry for the late update. I was busy during the weekend and the internet kept crashing so I wasn’t able to properly work on this post. D:

1. Ailee and Yiruma collaborates for ‘Higher’. I feel like I’m watching an inspiring anime with such a song as the OST. (Don’t tell me(?) it’s because of the picture… …eheh) Her explosive vocals (love her control), with the beautiful instrumental was just so good!

K-Pop News So Far [10th Sept 2012] part 2 [updated]

K-Pop doesn’t allow a week without any release. Commence Youtube videos/links!

Debuts: I’m actually quite scared of this word now. I’m not liking how many are debuting each/this year. I understand that the K-Pop industry is extremely competitive. Everybody is scared to lose out. But if the quality is not good or stays stagnant, there’s just no point in pushing the debut date up. I see a recent surge in talented groups so far. But even those with talents can get ignored/pushed aside easily because there are just, too many groups and too many (similar type of) songs. Oh and too many visuals. =.=

We have 2 new groups and a soloist entering the (over-populated) stage: 24k( two four k), Lunafly and Baek Ah Yeon.

24K’s debut song was a good listen. You can tell that the group has great vocals they can rely on. (Shouldn’t that be the first and foremost concern for all groups actually?)  The MV didn’t really help in differentiating who’s who. And it’s funny how ‘hurry up’ sounded nothing like their teaser.
