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.

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 

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

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.

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

K Songs So Far [1st – 20th July 2013]

I am sick currently and have been trying my best to get a post up. I may have difficulties being objective because somehow being ill makes me prefer songs with stronger flavour. The songs I liked and found to be ok may receive some negative feedback since July had a bevy of the industry’s heavyweights returning and most of them did things below my expectations. IMHO people, IMHO.

Songs Sick-Me Would Recommend/Songs Sick-Me like

1. Dynamic Duo returns with their 7th album ‘Lucky Numbers‘ and honestly, their title song ‘BAAM'(snake?) wasn’t as good as I would have liked it but it was still ok. The song has an RnB groove and I love how Gaeko ‘Ow!Ow!Ow!Ow!’s in the song and MV. The album is good overall, with most being my favourites, excluding ‘Baam (feat Muzie of UV)’ and ‘Lee Dae Ho((feat. Supreme Team, DJ Friz)’ which were not too bad, but not too good either. The beats and the rapping go so well together in RoTK.

K-Pop Songs So Far [26th Oct – 8th Nov 2012]

Point to note: a lot, and I mean, a lot of ballads have been released lately. So, forgive me if I didn’t add them into the post. My mood seems to have changed once again.

So in case I forget to mention them, Monday Kiz (that husky rapping is awesome in Probability! The chorus is just boring. That Kid is much better.) and Noel (Without a doubt, veterans. I rec woman and like a star. ) have released their albums. I must say, all the songs are actually quite good. But gradually, such good songs become hard to listen to. Which may explain why some ballads (that I heard in the start) are in the rec list.    Oh yeah and no news this week..heh. Nothing was really up..so..:P

Recommendations

Without importance placed on the ranking, top ones on the list is:

1. Soo Min & Rex. D Project‘s I’m Sorry is a pretty good song at just 2 minutes and 5 seconds. Soo Min is the female singer, Rex.D is the rapper in the song. 

2. Lee Hi‘s debut totally. Hit. The. Right. Spot. Damn, her debut was just plain amazing – sassy and badass. I have GOT to hand it to YG CEO Yang. He really knows what he is doing. Her debut overshadowed Ji Min’s and Ah Yeon’s.

Hi everyone! This will be a post about the music I’m listening to, if you are interested. But as I’m still green in this area of IT stuff, please bear with me.

Since it’s summer, catchy tunes are not to be missed!

1. JJ Project – Hooked. 

2. WG – girlfriend.
