G-Dragon – Michi GO!  ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop/Hiphop

GD got crazy… not surprising, since the name of the song has “crazy” in it! I love the different expressions he made in this MV. I’m not sure about the song yet, but then I didn’t really think “Crayon” was all that great at first either and now it’s one of my favorites from him, haha.

Jo Yong Pil – Hello ft Verbal Jint ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop/Rock

The legendary “King of Singers,” Jo Yong Pil is back with a catchy pop rock song. The MV is really fun to watch and has a cute story about what seems to be a boy feeling like a man after gaining a crush on the new girl next door.

History – Dreamer ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Wow, they do stand out with their sound. Nice blending voices… kind of an old fashioned feel, but at the same time, the marching beat makes it feel like something new. Even their image in the MV is different from usual Kpop groups out there; they wear suits and do a classy kind of dance. I’m interested to see what they do next!

Shinee – Why So Serious?  ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

I know, I know, people are defending the name of the song after GD’s “Crayon” used the line “Why So Serious?” in the lyrics, but it’s a common trend in Kpop. If a lyric becomes popular, there’s a good chance another group will pick it up for their own stuff. Likewise, I’ve seen new groups be named after recently popular song titles. It’s really no big deal in the Kpop world!
Anyway…. Oh yes. I see a top hat in this MV <3 Of course, what stood out most was the absence of Jonghyun, who was out because of an injury. They couldn’t wait for him and sadly had to film it without him.
Song-wise, I’m loving the rock-type sounds scattered around here.

옥상달빛(OKDAL) – 새로와 뮤직비디오 ↓↓↓
Category: Indie

A visually fun and playful MV. The vocals are pure and the beat is also entertaining to hear.

DickPunks – Viva Primavera  ↓↓↓
Category: Indie/Kpop

Oh great beat, harmony when needed, and main vocals!

Roy Kim – Spring Spring Spring  ↓↓↓
Category: Folk Rock

If you don’t know Roy Kim, you need to check him out. His vocal are so pure and lovely. (You’ll also learn how to say “Spring” in Korean… “Bom Bom Bom….”)

We Are The Night – Talk To Me
Category: Indie

Great tune and beat. The MV is interesting and fairly unique, as the guy’s room parties without him there.

D-Unit – Thank You ft Beenzino ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

A catchy and nice-sounding song by D-Unit. The MV is more for fans, since it has a behind-the-scenes feeling.

Yoo Ji Ae – Delight ft Baro ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Yoo Ji Ae’s unique voice stands out with it’s cuteness combined with slight, breathy vibrato. B1A4 fans will love seeing Baro in the MV!

SiberianHusky – Odd Eyes ↓↓↓
Category: Indie

Oh such unique voices! The song sounds pretty laid-back. I also like their personal styles in the video.

Jay Park – Welcome ↓↓↓
Category: R&B

Sensual and sexy~ Jay Park singing “Welcome to my bed” while laying in it. ‘Nuff said.

Kim Bada – Hurt  ↓↓↓
Category: Rock

Starts out kind of soft, but then gets powerful.

Mooa (무아) – 망각의 약  ↓↓↓
Category: Rock

True rock sound. If you like rock, you really need to listen to this!

Teen Top – Walk By ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Here’s a playful and upbeat song. The MV contains concert and behind-the-scenes footage of the boys, as well as random set-up scenes.

Juniel – Pretty Boy ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Juniel is back with a super cute and girly MV and song. The story in the MV kept my attention to the end, even though I can get a pretty good idea what message they were trying to convey to her “uncle fans.”
Cutesy stuff isn’t really my thing, but if you like it, check it out!

4Minute – What’s Your Name? ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

What starts out as a usual flirty and sexy dancing MV, slowly turns into horror.
(Yeah, some people are comparing it to T-ara’s past MV, but hey, Michael Jackson did it before T-ara, so…. lol)
The beat of the song makes it unique and funky. I bet it would be fun to dance to.

Lyn – Glass Heart ↓↓↓
Category: Power Ballad

Beautiful vocals that stay interesting to listen to. The MV has artistic imagery that’s pretty to see, though it’s sad.

N-Train – Come Back To Me ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Another really nice dancing song. Honestly, the video is a bit boring. There’s not much to the dance, but hey, there’s a sudden gratuitous shirtless scene in the middle haha.

84LY – Girl Talk ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

If you recognize the song, that’s because it came out 6 months ago. It took them this long to release the MV, which is pretty old-school. Not outright bad, just lower quality.
Personally, the song feels like something preteens would like more than any other audience.

Kim Il Du – 극동의 3리터 ↓↓↓
Category: Indie

A deep voice at a slower tempo than the background music. The MV captures the feeling, which appears to be a man going to his own funeral.

RAINBOW99 – 매미 2 ↓↓↓
Category: Indie


더 롹 (The R.O.C.K) – Tiger  ↓↓↓
Category: Rock

Pretty much a hard metal version of “Eye of the Tiger.” This group was created by three Dr.Core 911 members and a drummer. I was a huge fangirl of Dr.Core 911 back in the day… I was obsessed with them. So it’s nice for me to hear something with some of the members again!

Monni (몽니) – 술자리 ↓↓↓
Category: Acoustic Rock

Nice laid-back acoustic band sound.

Geeks – Siren ↓↓↓
Category: Hip Hop

Aw, the best things are always too short! I really need a full version of this! (Don’t mind me, I’m just a big fan of Lil Boi haha!)

F.Cuz – Hello Again ↓↓↓
Category: Japanese Kpop

Pure and pastel. If you like cutesy boys, check this out.

LUNAFLY – Fly To Love (Eng version)
Category: English Kpop

Not much to say… it’s an English version of their “Fly to Love” song. I think it’s a pretty good translation. The MV still has the same thing going on.

  1. lol the whole “Why So Serious ? thing it’s quite funny when you think it actually came from Batman….
    I really like HISTORY, I wasn’t really looking forward their debut but soon as I saw the M/V I really wanted to have the rest of the single. The boys have really nice vocal.
    LYn…I love LYn she have a really nice voice that carry emotion.

    • Yeah, it’s funny how some Kpop fans complain about stuff like that when their favorite group didn’t even come up with it themselves in the first place XD

      I feel the same about HISTORY. I was kind of curious since their teasers were unique, but I guess I wasn’t expecting anything new. I hope they keep staying unique!

      • One think is sure about HISTORY, is their music video will probably always be awesome. They are under Loen and it’s one of those agency who always come up with interesting MV for their artist.

      • I hope so! I hate it when groups have a good debut and then their other songs aren’t that great… like AA or Myname >.<

      • When it came to vocal abilities I always thrust McRoth’s opinion and he was quite please by what he hear XD so I think it would make a difference since History can harmonize

      • That’s good haha. Since their teasers weren’t really focusing on music, I was a bit worried about their singing ability XD;

      • There three song on their debut single and they are all great. I’m happy to finally have a group without all that dubstep and electro – pop sound that producer seems to affection lately

      • I actually kind of like dubstep though, haha XD But auto-tune… I hate auto-tune!
        And yeah, it is really nice to have pop-like music that has a different sound from the electro stuff.
