Have You Listened To Them Yet?: [5th – 23rd Oct 2014]

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. 😀 Two other links here may help too: LINK #1 , LINK #2

Songs I Like and Would Like to Recommend 

Mann, the start of October is already this exciting with Epik High, Gaeko and Ha Dong Qn’s comebacks! Joining in are Roy Kim, Younha, Gummy, Lena Park, Suju, G.O.D & Crucial Star (well, he’s from C-JeS Ent…) from the mainstream side and Suki, Loptimist, 20 Years of Age and Urbanspace from the Indie/Underground counterpart. And even though this isn’t the finest time to debut, super rookies Bernard Park, Purfles & Almeng held their own in the face of such competition. 🙂

Epik High produces a masterpiece of an album in <Shoebox>, showing that the trio are capable of both sentimental and dope Hip-Hop. Moreover, Epik High deserves praise for hand-picking the right vocalists and rappers. As for the album, I can’t pick a favourite –  because every track was just GENIUS. If you need an introduction to the trio’s album, here you go: Raise The Curtain (Mid-tempo Hip-Hop Soul), ‘Happen Ending’ (ft Rollercoaster’s husky, deep vocalist Jo Wan Seon – mid-tempo Hip-Hop Rap Ballad; the 70s-influenced beats are so nostalgic/bittersweet.), ‘Rich’ (ft Big Bang’s Tae Yang – Urban mid-tempo Hip-Hop), ‘Spoiler’ (melancholic low-tempo Hip-Hop Ballad; lyrics were impressive – love the link between the title and breakups | Kim Ji Su looks like a cross between Clara and Yewon – pretty!..And that 95er(!!!) male model Kim Kibum >.<), ‘Burj Khalifa’ (ft Yankee, DD’s Gaeko – Urban Underground Hip-Hop Dance), ‘Fighting Again’( ft Younha – mid-tempo Hip-Hop Rap Ballad – will Younha do another remake? Hahahaha; the resignation in Younha’s voice makes her a good candidate for such blue tracks..), ‘Amor Fati’ (ft Nell’s Kim Jong Wan – mid-tempo Hip-Hop Ballad; oh this is just so raw & beautifully intense), ‘Born Hater’ (Mid-tempo Electronic Hip-Hop Rap featuring a rap line-up of Beenzino, Verbal Jint, Mino, Bobby and B.I; liked how they each had their own vent session with their rhyme time. …And with the standard dose of curses – what else? – but they ended it adorably with a ‘nono’…so I’ll forgive them for B.I’s sake 😛 ..and on Verbal Jint’s account – cos he seemed so awkwardly endearing in the MV. And that was icky Tablo – I’m a born hater of roaches. >.<) , Click title to read more comfortably or click to continue

Have You Listened To Them Yet?: [14th Sept – 3rd Oct 2014]

It’s been a heavy quarter for K-Pop as tragic news from Ladies Code and 4minute surfaces (my condolences).

As if things weren’t already bad, shocking member departures (Exo’s Lu Han, Mblaq’s split after contract ends and GG’s Jessica) were reported as well. Hopefully, the companies and celebrities work out a win-win situation…

On the other hand, articles of ZE:A’s Jun Yeong against Star Empire Ent’s CEO could be seen as more of a pleasant surprise than a gloomy read from the idol’s perspective. Unless the fault lies with the idols, seeing them rise up to the occasion for their rights puts a smile to our faces.

Meanwhile, actor Lee Byeong Heon makes headlines with his blackmail scandal.

Songs I Like and Would Like to Recommend 

Zion. T’s ‘Yanghwa BRDG’ FINALLY puts the talented artiste on the map. The low-tempo RnB Soul track is simply beautiful. With Retro elements added to the Urban piece, ‘Yanghwa BRDG’ feels nostalgic and bittersweet. And in spite of the melancholy felt through the lyrics and Zion. T’s vocals, Zion. T’s hit also encompasses things like appreciation and love. It’s no wonder the RnB piece is gaining so much support! Can totally imagine the feels of every parent working late into the night, listening to such a song?? T.T  Click title to read more comfortably or click to continue

K-Pop News/Songs So Far [15th Feb – 6th March 2013] part 2

Note: I have not listened to every song released.

1. Amoeba Culture‘s project album NOWorkend already has Gaeko and Zion.T‘s works released. Read more in the akp links. Gaeko’s song has so much swaaaag. It’s so fierce and edgy! (MV’s not available for me :() I can’t have enough of Zion T’s voice. Some might know who Crush is from his collaboration with Kyung.

K-Pop News So Far [24th Sept – 9th Oct 2012] part 1: songs

Firstly, I’m terribly sorry for being so late. I promised. You guys might have already read from akp probably because I was tardy. I know. In my defense, the draft continued from Sunday all the way till now. This is why I decided to I cut down on stuff so the post would mostly be things that I consider major. Songs will be covered first this time round. Hope you enjoyed the selection. It’s A.LOT. So take your time (please do heh:P) 😀

The songs (be it link or the video) that are posted here are the ones that I like. The (no comments) songs below are not necessarily songs I didn’t like. It was okay, but not spectacular for me. So I have provided the akp and utube links for those who want a listen or are fans of the singer(s).

Debuts-wise: MR.MR (who’s that girl), A.Cian(title track Stuck, I preferred Where’s All My Love. They harmonised and falsetto-ed!!), The Cheers (I only recommend I Worry About You. Sorry. Had to correct the title. heh)

K-Pop News So Far [16th Sept 2012] part 3

The Comebacks continue…

H Eugene has a new mini-album ‘man on fire‘. All 3 songs aren’t that bad. I admit that the MV for Party Animal have many redundant things but I like H Eugene’s rapping. haha. ‘We Rock‘ features many stars like Eric and San E. The chorus is addicting! ‘Still‘ is good song. I can’t resist violin and rap. LOL. This is supposed to be a song dedicated to MC Mong.
