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

Have You Listened To Them Yet?: June Edition Part 2 [16th – 30th June 2013]

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.

The songs that came out during this post’s period made it difficult for me to classify strictly. So, I’m going to be less brutal for the section below. 

Songs I Would Recommend/ Songs I liked 

1. Ulala Session pre-releases ‘Fertilizer’ from their mini album ‘Memory’. Perhaps ‘Beautiful Night’ made such a deep impression on me that I totally didn’t anticipate a ballad from them. The ballad, is breathtaking. Their emotions are just overflowing and before I knew it, I became emotional hearing them sing. I just, feel so sad for their loss too. *tissue, where are you.* AND Goosebumps, don’t ever forget goosebumps. The group’s mini album focuses on a more serious image, remembering their leader Im Yoon Taek. The intro, ‘Dear’, is just pure a capella+falsetto goodness. ‘Memory’ makes me tear once again. The chorus, I just can’t.. The whole song is one word: bittersweet. ‘I’ll Be There’ is a more cheerful, hopeful song. I can’t dislike this, it’s amazing. ‘TAQ…Remember’ is a slower song compared to the rest. The lighter instrumentals made for a simpler, sweeter ballad about remembering the past.

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.

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!!!
