Farscape is actually pretty cool.


Been listening to IZ*ONE a bunch lately. BLOOM*IZ is a really solid album.

I think it was the first non-BTS/TXT K-pop album that I really listened to, so I'll always remember it fondly.

Also Sunmi spoiled a couple b-sides for the upcoming album on a live like yesterday, I think? One of them is a rock song and she wants to bring the bass back out when she performs it live.

Bassist Sunmi returning the next time she tours?? yes pls

e: also Taeyeon's sister released a song. it started out entirely composed by AI and then some producers went in to jush it up or smth ??

Mamamoo... is coming back for you.

Details about the album is that there will be 2 versions and that there will be 1 photocard, out of a possible 16, in each album.

So what are some of the most extra album extras that youíve seen?

Seems like they went for an intentional sound mixing thing when the lyrics were about left and right? I honestly wondered what was wrong with my headphones when I heard it, doesn't help that section flows terribly. I like cute concept songs but I don't think I ever want to hear this song again lol.

New Weki Meki track seems okay, I don't love it but it could grow on me more

now that Iíve had a couple days, Iím so let down by the Blackpink album. Not even one of these songs come close to the quality of anything from Blackpink In Your Area(other than Stay, I think that one stinks). The songs are all toothless and it really seems like they tried to cater to their ďWesternĒ sound way too much. Went away from what made them special.

That Don't Touch Me song is real good.

Less good - what is up with Blackpink's choreo? why does every dance involve the same wavey arm moves?

Also there will be 13 songs on the new Twice album and 6 of the songs lyrics were written by members. Some of their B sides have been great recently so I am pretty excited for it.

Red Velvet are super good and they just seem to keep getting better.

Jeongyeon from Twice is out of second album promo activities, anxiety related reasons according to the official statement. It's good that they're actually allowed to rest and get help but this is the second time that it's happened to a member now. Also, Twice have a track on the upcoming K/DA EP which just strikes me as one of those things they didn't need to do and they should have just let everyone rest instead.

When I searched for AKMU on spotify I realized I already gave their song Dinosaur favorited since before lol, I had no idea that was them. I love the chorus of that song, it's so pretty.
I'll check out their albums/eps today. Are they big in SK?

AKMU is hella popular in SK, yeah. They're not idols and the GP loves them. This is good timing to get into them tbh, Chanhyuk finished his military service early this year so you're catching them as their hiatus ends.

awww yeah I was just coming back to the thread to do this

Hyori's on loving fire this year and I hope she sticks around for a while longer, I really missed her putting music out and being on variety.

e: such a shame these project groups are happening in this, the dark year of no audiences at music shows.

Agreed RV own own own.

Poor Jeongyeon I wonder if her anxiety is related to the back injury she had a few months ago. Kinda wish they could push promoting the album until she's feeling up to it but that's likely impossible.

Edit: totally forgot about AKMU. This was the first kpop song I was exposed to back in 2014. Stupid catchy

The description on the Loona video is hilarious

quote:

A destiny discovered between coincidence and fate LOOΠΔ has created a wave of change beyond imagination through [#] and has come to realize their true roles; to be pioneers for all of the LOOΠΔs of the world.
To celebrate the New Moon, LOOΠΔ is expecting a new moon to rise. On this occasion, they will hold a Moonlight festival at [12:00], when the moon shines the brightestóa festival where no girl will feel silenced.
LOOΠΔ makes coincidence when destiny collides with fate, and finds her destiny within coincidence and fate to deliver a new message for the Midnight Festival.

And it just keeps going. The song isn't as good as So What imo. it's ok but has what is basically becoming my least favourite kind of chorus. I really like Voice/Star from the album though.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McTsLi-gJo4

Edit - after listening to the whole mini album, I really like it. Itís got great variety and the single track is basically the only song I donít love. Also itís weird that itís a mini album when it has the same number of songs as bpís full album

Twice performed a B-side from their new album on live-stream last night. People are describing it as retro citypop, whatever that is. I like it, I think Jeongyeon's voice works really well with this song so it's a shame she couldn't be there.

I'm defo vibing with this. Twice stuff is p hit or miss for me, but the more of their b-sides I hear the more I wonder if it's just their singles that don't always hit me right. I should add their albums to the list of poo poo to finally listen to on my drive up north at the end of the month.

hell yessss I didn't know RV was going to be having another comeback this year.

Say Something is vibey - very into it. The teasers for the new title track next week make it seem like they're going for a synthwave feel. So excited for the album.

Hello I can't stop listening to Taemin's new track Criminal

I stopped listening to kpop seriously around 2013 and then really lost it in 2017 (was a big SHINee fan) but BTS have pulled me back and I'm loving the current hip-hop focus/all the girl groups. also Criminal

I'm thinking about pre-ordering the new BTS album but it's $100 here and that seems excessive even by kpop fan standards.

Vastakaiun

I'm kinda glad I don't really care about anything that k-pop albums usually include, otherwise I'd be broke in a heartbeat.

Speaking of Taemin, his newest album is really good, but I'm blown away by how much I love the SuperM album. The singles really grew on me, "One" is a banger and every b-side is mad catchy.
