Hyori – Bad Girl ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Wow, this video, haha! The little girl is adorable! I also like Hyori’s tan, especially since light skin is apparently so sought-after in Korea. The song has the jazzy thing going on, but is also easy to dance to. I like the theme too, which is kind of about being assertive and tough instead of passive and “good.”

VIXX – Hyde ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Yes! VIXX is back with a really creepy concept! Wow, just listen to this song… it has a different sound to it. Yeah, it still has the generic Kpop vibe in the chorus, but the verses sound cool. I just wish they had a bit harder sound for the concept. They have a slightly minor chord happening, but the song doesn’t really strike me as creepy unless I was watching the video or knew the lyrics. I feel there should be more intensity or something.
(Also, I’m slightly concerned about the way it makes being an evil abusive guy look cool… IDK….)

LUNAFLY – Van Gogh ↓↓↓
Category: Acoustic Kpop

This video just came out of nowhere haha. The MV seems to be for fans… just behind-the-scenes stuff. But I really love the song! Catchy and nice. I mean, I even like the English version and that rarely happens for me, haha.

Yi Sung Yol – We Are Dying ↓↓↓
Category: Indie

To borrow the words of others before me, this song is “enchanting.” It has a kind of Middle Eastern vibe, and gets trance-like. It kind of makes me think of the 70’s for some reason.
(The MV actually came out on the 14th, but I somehow missed it and it’s too cool not to post.)

Rapper Song – 엄마 (feat. Jayvito) ↓↓↓
Category: Rap

Oh he’s pretty good. I like intense raps. There’s an R&B sound around the chorus, too.

100% – Want U Back ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

LOL Before I realized what the name of this song was, I thought they were saying, “Watch your back,” like some kind of threat….
Anyway, not bad. I like some of the imagery in the MV, like the laying down among the flowers. While this isn’t a song I’d personally put on my MP3 player, I think it goes perfectly with the MV! I enjoyed watching this.

Two Months – Number 1 ↓↓↓
Category: Alternative

Well, I think I’d enjoy the MV a lot more if I could read Korean better… lol. It was still interesting though, to see all the social media like that. The song itself  is cute and jaunty. Apparently it was created to celebrate this duo’s 2nd anniversary.
Oh, and if you saw “Shut Up Flower Boy Band,” you might recognize the unique voice of  female vocalist, Kim Ye-Rim.

Lovelybut – 일요일찬가 ↓↓↓
Category: Indie/Ballad

Is this really the name of the band…? Ah well, the video is lovely! It’s charmingly artistic. But aw, why did it have to end that way?

Lee Ki Chan – First Impression ↓↓↓
Category: Alternative

I’m not sure how to describe it, haha. Latin vibe? I love how it sounds though! Check it out!

Vibe – As I’m Getting Older ↓↓↓
Category: Ballad

Great ballad. Even though the concept of the MV is kind of creepy, I couldn’t stop watching it. It was pretty interesting!

Kim Beggar – Tightwad  ↓↓↓
Category: Acoustic

Another simple, lovely, happy song. I love this one!

Okasian, Reddy, Kid Ash & Korlio – So Many Girls Remix ↓↓↓
Category: Hip Hop

Ah a nice pervy song LOL  But ah, I love collab songs like this… besides the chorus, it has a nice sound.

MONKEYZ – 숨바꼭질 ↓↓↓
Category: Rock

This sounds familiar… did I already post it? lol I like it, though. It’s a really pretty song.

ICYCIDER- Art People ↓↓↓
Category: Alternative Rock

This is a fun sound, haha, and they look like fun people too!

COUNTER RESET (카운터리셋) – Rock N’ Roll Day  ↓↓↓
Category: Rock

For some reason… apparently the “foreigners” in this MV are just actors…? Yeah, I don’t know either haha. But if you like rock, you’ll probably like this song!

Oh Ji Eun- 고작 ↓↓↓
Category: Rock

Female artist. I think the vocals are pretty, though I’d like to hear a bit more power from her, (just my preference). I think the MV fits the mood of the song well.

fine – What Are We Talking About ↓↓↓
Category: Indie

It starts out with just the title being repeated, which makes it kind of trance-like. But then it gets a beat and moves on to more lyrics.

Yi Sung Yol – Fear  (Don’t Let It Get The Best Of You Darling) ↓↓↓
Category: Indie

This is a long song,  but it’s worth listening to. It starts out relaxing, then changes pace a little bit towards the middle.
(Why does it make me remember Pink Floyd a tiny bit? lol)

TVXQ – Ocean ↓↓↓
Category: Japanese

Eunhyuk and Donghae – I Wanna Dance ↓↓↓
Category: Japanese

  1. Before looking that the post I saw
    Lee Hyori – Bad Girl: Love the song and the music video. It’s quite original but it’s doesn’t beat the amazing “Miss Korea”
    VIXX – Hyde: I really don’t know what to think of this group. They always have good and addictive – even if they are kpop generic- song, but soon as I hear Ravi’s rap it kill everything, I just can with that kid. I still really like the mv tho
    100% – Want U Back: I was really look forward for that comeback. I knew they were coming back since Seo Minwoo ( leada) meet Lee Minwoo ( SHINHWA) at the studio and tweet about it – can’t remeber when tho – and I’m not disappointed but I’m not amaze either. I like the MV it goes with the song, but there is something missing and I don,t know what it is. I really like their stage on music show, better than the MV.

    After looking at the post
    VIBE – As I’m Getting Older : I had not clue how was VIBE until I saw LOEN tweeting about it and I still try to figure the story line of the music video, but I love the song
    TVXQ – OCEAN: I Hate PV not long enough to make a precise idea of the video and the music. But my first though was “WTH is that !?” and then ” Hmmm nice summer song”
    Eunhyuk and Donghae – I Wanna Dance : Nice “Oppa Oppa” sequel, but I still rather “Oppa Oppa” even if DH is sexy as hell in that mv, like the hair

    • I totally agree about 100%. There’s just something missing….

      I think the storyline in VIBE’s “As I’m Getting Older” song is supposed to be a guy that liked a girl, but never faced her about it. Instead, he just sends her letters. Even though time goes on and she gets married and then divorced, he still loves her. He dreams about her missing him too and then getting together, but then he wakes up. It’s sad, but a little creepy, in my opinion, haha.

      Yeah, I wonder if TVXQ will release a longer version later… lol

      • The thing with 100% is that you can really enjoy them when you can see all the dance routine. They are similar to Teen Top, their song are nice but it’s always better when they release the dance version of the Mv – something 100% have that TT doesn’t have it’s the vocal but that is something else.
        Ahhhh see like that it make sense ya
        PV are never officially release unless it coming from the Korean agency. Avex will most probably not release it. Normally they but it will the CD so only the one who bought the album can see the complete mv

      • Ah okay XD I’ve seen some full PVs released, but then the sound is super quiet. I wonder if it was uploaded by fans… but then I don’t know why the sound was so low.

        I totally agree about TT and 100%.

      • Probably they rip the DVD/CD and uploaded it on YT. I know sometime the Korean agency upload the full PV like JT tune did it with the Japanese version on Mona Lisa…
        I like TT cause of their dance, vocally speaking they are average and 100% can also pull out some greatness when they dance, I was really amaze by their debut song and dance “Bad Boy” and they can sing too . I remember watching one of their Bad Biy dance practice…while they were dancing they were also singing without playback or autotune…. The think with 100%, is that since they are still rookie, they didn’t found their own sound. When you were a TT song you know it’s them it have that annoying Brave Brother touch ( Sorry SweetTunes biased speaking here) but 100% doesn’t stand out even if they are in a lot of point better than TT -IMO
