Geeks – Fly ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

I really love this duo. If you like this, make sure and check out their “Backpack” album! This song has a more dreamy feel compared to a lot of their other stuff.
Usually I’d classify them as “hiphop” but there is a more “pop” feel to this, I think… so yeah. I’m not sure haha. I don’t really consider them as a “Kpop” group.

Ailee – U&I ↓↓↓
Category: R&B/Kpop

Another album I plan to buy. Her vocals are just amazing! The whole album is full of awesome.

Blue Near Mother (블루니어마더) – Change ↓↓↓
Category: Light Rock

Love the sound here. It’s just one of those songs that make people happy.

Jay Park – I Like 2 Party ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Nice, listen to that beat! The rap break is my favorite though, haha.

XIA – Incredible ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Fun song for the summer! But now I’m curious… what exactly is “spaceship candy”? lol

Son Seung Yeon – I’m Not Crazy ↓↓↓
Category: Ballad

Kind of a strange, artistic and symbolic, MV. The song gets really pretty around the mid-point, in my opinion.

SHU-I – Don’t Let It Get You Down ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

I like the light minor sound in there. I wish there was more of it. The song is catchy and decent, and it grows on me the more I listen to it. I love how Inseok is dressed… backwards hat and then that open shirt! (Glad he’s legal lol)

Daesung – I Love You ↓↓↓
Category: Japanese

Ugh his voice… it’s too beautiful ;o; He’s lovely in this bittersweet MV too. I wish I could see the longer version!

Rude Paper – Fight Like The Lion ↓↓↓
Category: Reggae

Well, Skull&Haha are entertaining, but I love seeing more serious Reggae like this, instead of Korean duos/singers just appropriating it, (you know, when it appears more comical, even if they’re trying not to be). Rude Paper’s sound here feels pretty unique and awesome.

A-Jax – Insane ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

The MV is pretty entertaining to watch. Sometimes a bit surreal, haha. The song sounds fun to dance to.

Stellar – Study ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Cheer leader concept? The dance looks really fun. The song sounds bouncy and catchy. I think I actually like this! Haha.

Lim Kim – All Right remix ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Cartoon interpretation of the original MV. Really cool to watch, actually.
Some people like this remix more, and some people don’t. Guess it’s kind of 50/50 haha.

Untouchable – Call Me ↓↓↓
Category: Hiphop

Smooth. Love the sound! I also like the directing of the MV.

BESTie – Pitapat ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Well… not bad. There’s something missing from the MV though, but I can’t tell what exactly it is. Maybe the concept just sucks. The only good part is when Jo Kwon shows up in the end lol

Sunny Side – First Love ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Cute! The vocals all work really well together for this song.

TURAN – Bang Bang Bang ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Whoa, love the dance! The song is kind of strange. I think people looking for something new in Kpop might like it. I wonder if it’s the type that would grow on me. I don’t like the higher vocals though, haha.

Yoo Sung Eun – Be Okay ↓↓↓
Category: Acoustic/Jazz

Wow I love this idea! Very cool with the “chapters”, though I’m not sure about the flow. Her voice is great!
Check out the original version here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kaOulmXY0Q

Annyeongbada – 하소연 (Please, please) ↓↓↓
Category: Indie

Relaxing. Somewhat melancholic?

GoGoKING (고고킹) – Oh! Tonight ↓↓↓
Category: Indie/Disco/Pop

Why is this hard to describe? lol It sounds like a form of pop, but it’s not mainstream enough to call “Kpop” in my opinion. The MV looks like a good time haha.

Breezy Note (브리지노트) – Everyday I Love U ↓↓↓
Category: Indie

A “drive song”? Groovy and light female vocals.

BIKINY – Please Accept Me ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Sweet and catchy song… but the MV… could they have put any more obvious emphasis on cleavage? LOL And the sexualization… I’m curious what Koreans think about this MV, since cleavage is apparently taboo. Personally, I’m always kind of disturbed when they mix “cute” with “sexy.”

2EYES – Don’t Mess With Me (drama version) ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

It’s funny to see more people like the song when watching this version, even though this version is kind of cheesy sometimes. I’m pretty sure it’s just a budget issue, so I think they do pretty well considering that, haha. The girls look really cool, despite the exaggerations and B-movie feel. The end was very strange though… did she just light a cigarette with her rocket arm? wtf

LEDApple – Betrayal ↓↓↓
Category: Soft Rock

This is a song off of their mini album. Not a “real” MV, but hey, we’ll take what we can get.

Teen Top – Clap Encore ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Teen Top are bringing back the memories with an “encore” of their classic Clap!
