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

K-Pop News/Songs So Far [1st Feb – V-day 2013]

Sorry for the long wait. I didn’t have time to do an update last week. Also, I will only be able to do an update in another 2 weeks plus time.  Drama/film resumes next update too. So, apologies.

Note: There are some songs I missed out that got released during the two weeks. For instance, Yesung’s OST, D-Unit’s pre-release, etc.

Recommended

1. Voice Korea’s Shin Cho Yi’s debut single is so bad ass and intense. Her voice is so deep and powerful, which had me almost thinking if the song (titled ‘Bad’) featured a male vocalist. Haha. I’m an instant fan! What’s better is that the song suited the film/mv.The starting heavy beats were wonderful. Please take note that this is not the full song. The jacket making(a video that’s on the akp link) ends the song better:) Can’t wait for the full one!!!

K-Pop New So Far [10th – 13th Oct 2012] :songs.

Beware, love confessions abound..hahaha

Debuts

1. Winner of MBC’s Top Band, Toxic, has their debut mini album out!  Toxic, I…I have something to say. I LOVE YOU. I FREAKIN’ DO. That drawn-out starting verse? God (RM Siwon style). The melody was also very refreshing. Rock, is just awesome in any way. Official fan here!
