Hyori – Bad Girl ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓

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 ↓↓↓
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) ↓↓↓
Oh he’s pretty good. I like intense raps. There’s an R&B sound around the chorus, too.
100% – Want U Back ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
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) ↓↓↓
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 ↓↓↓
Eunhyuk and Donghae – I Wanna Dance ↓↓↓
