K-Pop News So Far [23rd Sept 2012] part 3

There have been so many releases that I may consider a part 4. Hope I can do it in one post only:)

BTW, is there something wrong with utube audios? I have to refresh the page a few times sometimes.

Debuts

1. 100%‘s concept is nothing like their teaser photos. So random, by the way. Lol. The song is great and I’m pleased with the vocals. The drawn-out ‘Uri ga wae’ (and chorus) is the highlight for me. Here’s the Live version of both the intro WE, 100% and the title track Bad Boy (Nappeun Nom)  The intro track seems to be the preview for the title track and it’s relatively slower which gives a different impact that’s on par with Bad Boy. The MV is right here for your viewing pleasure ;D. Still again is the last song on the debut album and it’s nothing much.

K-Pop New So Far [16th Sept 2012] part 2

Sorry for the late post! It has been a hectic week for me. Hope I can churn out the other intended post asap.

Gosh I’m addicted to Vampire Pros 2’s ‘Danger‘ OST!

Not-quite Debut

Take Hyun is the only person in this section but that’s good enough, seriously. I’m not sure if anybody knows him  but his 2 releases (one of them is his official debut song, ‘Stand By Me’) are not bad! Check them out below!

‘Stand By Me’ is an amazing song. I was actually surprised that a rookie would take up a rock genre for his debut. But he didn’t let me down. Those vocals of his are outstanding and if he plans to rock it out a little longer, then that’s great news! When an MV tries to tell me a story, I’m lost. lol..My brain is terrible at analysing. I’m not sure if it’s because I get distracted very easily or that I’m just not that deep. However it’s obvious what the video was getting at: a painful break up that a guy doesn’t want. He’s so badly hurt that he trashes everything. Even that poor guitar.

K-Pop News So Far [16th Sept 2012] part 1

Sorry for the late update. I wasn’t feeling well on Friday and couldn’t get myself back together till today. Hope you guys didn’t wait too long! Oh and this week might have 2 reviews. Because I’m feeling rebellious, one of the reviews would be a 2012 drama review. But that’s still unconfirmed 😛

Let’s start off with some funnies! 

1. B.A.P. brought Madam Jeong’s dog to Music Bank! Brownie’s so cute <3. Non-Gag-Concert fans/viewers, it’s just a soft toy that has become a star in the skit called ‘Madam Jeong’!  Daehyun imitates Madam Jeong really well! The song’s perfect for the soft toy 🙂 Himchan, you like brownie A LOT right?

K-Pop News So Far [5th Sept] part 3 [update on opinions]

Sorry for the late post. No reviews next week. But if anyone’s asking, the next review would be My Girlfriend is a Gumiho.

This week was comebacks week!

G-D continues to rock my socks with comeback song #2: that xx. If I’m not wrong, the full title in Korean is  새끼 which translates to ‘that jerk’.  This song was a total surprise. The songs I would relate to G-D and/or Big Bang would be music that is fresh and unique, with an added charismatic edge to it. Another surprise is I actually liked this song because honestly, I didn’t like their previous big bang comeback title song ‘tonight’. The simplicity of the song (the guitar!) and rap just got me the instant I heard it. It’s just nice. (I’m not sure if my mood for certain songs change because now that I’m trying out ‘blue’ again and I actually like it. LOL.) As for the mv, it has this toned-down, plain nature to it that’s so attractive. The blue, greyish tones portray the melancholic side of the song. But nothing really stands out with an ‘in your face’ kind of attitude and it fits the understated vibe of the song. Check out Seoulbeats’ write-up. Without beep version.

K-Pop News So Far [27th Aug 2012] part 3

Part 2 is a click away above. Hopefully, you guys like the song picks for this time round’s K-Pop news:D

Comebacks

With GD back, I do feel sorry for the debuts, especially, and comebacks that are released around the same time. A mere post of GD’s MV is quite enough to bulldoze everything in sight, except Psy and Tiger JK. Haha. I’m so pleased with GD’s ‘One of A kind’! It’s edgy and has this weirdly addicting sound that suits GD well. The tiger cub and bear in the MV<3 Sorry I was so distracted by this daring addition to a music video. But I did notice Taeyang’s cameo 😛 It was a good surprise!  The lyrics are very GD and I’m so glad that it’s about something other than love between a guy and a girl. I love the rap, both the slow and fast ones. This guy’s charisma and confidence is magnetic. Even though the lyrics is egotistical, one can’t help but react to his pull. Honestly, I had extremely high expectations for his solo comeback. You can’t blame me really. GD has had his share of producing hits like ‘haru haru’ and ‘last farewell’ and when you have such talents, it’s no surprise people think of you so highly. 😀 But like what Gary would say: stree~ss. haha
