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

Veteran soloist Lee Seung Hwan has 5 MVs for the first half of his 11th album <Fall To Fly>. [Among the 5 MVs (tracks #2, 4, 5, 9,10), one belongs to a 2013 song/track 9/’Soap’ with Lim Kim.] The whole album is amazing. Although I can’t say I loved all 11 songs, the soloist has shown that he has the ability to merge variety with quality. With the exception of tracks 6(slow-tempo Piano Ballad) and 7(playful fast-tempo Jazz) which I felt was a little too bare for my liking and track 9 which I have already covered, the remaining 7 are my personal favourites. ‘Fall To Fly’ is a grand mid-tempo 90s Ballad with alternating Acoustic and electric guitars, whereas ‘I Only Respond To You’ is a pleasant, spirited Pop-ish Jazz with an endearing side to it. Better still, there’s a cute MV and dance along with it. 😀 (Is it me or does this sound like a christmas song. HAHA)  Click title to read more comfortably or click to continue

Alternative/Modern Rock band Nell presents an artistic comeback in ‘Four Times Around The Sun’, ending the Gravity series with their 6th album, <newton’s apple=””>. The representative track, is a mid-tempo Alternative/Modern Rock track that’s nicely matched with the light, bittersweet vocals of Kim Jong Wan, making the ‘FTATS’ quite the addicting song.

K-Pop Songs So Far [8th – 14th Dec 2012]

There will be no KSSF and drama/film news next week as I will be going for a holiday. But I’ll be sure to give an update when I’m back.

By the way, there have been some serious car accidents this week, involving both Secret and Crispi Crunchy. Hope both groups recover quickly and that nobody else gets hurt!

Recommended

1. Hwayobi just released her mini album in the later part of Nov, which can actually be found on this blog. But that’s not the point. In addition, she has participated in weekend drama, My Love, Madame Butterfly‘s OST.

K-Pop News So Far [22nd – 25th Oct 2012] part 3: songs

This edition officially starts the new version of KNSF. The news will depend on how I feel. LOL. I’m still contemplating on what to do for Drama/Film News because it will seriously be quite..empty without the comments… Not to worry, the newer KNSF is next.

It’s already Novemberrr! OMG

Recommendations

Comebacks

1. B.A.P returns with a soft image in ‘Stop It‘. So nothing fierce to look forward to..though ‘stop it’ are harsh words. The MV (or Bang Yong Guk rather) is adorable.
