Dal*Shabet are back with what is being called their “party anthem” of a song. “Fri.Sat.Sun” was released today as their comeback and that means I get to review it and hope it's a rocking song and see if it lives up to “Joker” which I personally think is their best comeback so far.
The concept in that music video is simple yet effective. It looked at the lives of each of the members during the week while they are at work and then their lives during the weekend. I really quite enjoyed that concept even though, like I said, it was incredibly simple. The dance looked simple enough although it's probably killer.
This track was bomb which is a strange word to describe it. The tempo was relatively laid back and chill. However, the vocals, instrumentation and the use of the full time/half time trick in the chorus left us with an excellently executed song; one that I'll listen to for a long time. I'm glad they did this concept and style of music. It's incredible.
Thanks for reading through this and don't forget to like, comment, and share this post. Thanks again.
Got7 is back with the repackaged version of their album Flight Log: Departure and with that comes new music, which is always a good thing especially with Got7. Got7 is a group I've always liked and thought were talented but only recently did I get hardcore into them. Now I'm stuck, but I ain't struggling. My bias currently is JB but my bias wrecker is either Jackson or Yugyeom
Oh my hell! That was so lit! The music video seemed to be the wreckage of a plane crash, which would make sense since the album is called Turbulence. It was dark but light and had a lot of symbolism that I probably missed, such as water tank and the pine trees. The dance was impressive too although I have seen better, but that was executed very well.
The song reminded me of “Trespass” by Monsta X and “Fire” by BTS, but in my opinion, this song was better than both. The energy was higher and stayed there pretty much the entire song. Not to mention the drop was a bit uneasy. This is a good thing because drops are becoming really predictable. The drop in this song only happened a couple of times to prevent from being too repetitive and it delayed the actual drop by about one beat to throw off the listener. I loved it.
Thanks for reading through my boring review about a song that was absolute fire. Look forward to the next comeback/debut from k-pop artists and will hopefully do an album review for Turbulence. Thanks.
Being a huge Popjusshi, I'm super excited for this comeback! They released “Vroom Vroom” a little while ago but I didn't see a music video associated with the song so I just skipped over it. I did listen to the song and love the song, but just didn't review it. It sounded much more like their “FM” era material than their older stuff. So today I'm reviewing “Doo Doom Chit” by the one and only Crayon Pop.
In this music video, Crayon Pop was trying to catch a rodent that turned out to be a cat that played the saxophone. Yeah, I'm confused too, but it's not too far off from stuff Crayon Pop has done in the past, like “Uh-ee” and many other videos. While the video was confusing, it still had bright colors and kind of had a story.
The song for this comeback was catchy. It almost sounded like Psy in the beginning. The deep driving bass along with the saxophone blaring over the top of the track, made for a quite unique song, but an enjoyable one. The rap break was a bit offsetting but that is how most of the rap breaks in Crayon Pop songs are.
Thanks again for the support. See you guys in the next one.
This will be my first time reviewing or even watching an Apink music video. Not to say that I've never seen an Apink video, but I haven't watched one all the way through. I'm not really sure the reason, but regardless, I will be reviewing “Only One” by Apink for their 3rd album.
In the music video, the entire things had a light and blue filter over it much like many cutesy girl group videos will do. April and Apink are the most guilty of this trend, but there are others that have participated as well. The video was confusing because one second I was on the roof with the members and then I was suddenly watching a cat walk nearer to me and then I was sitting on the stairs with one of the members wearing a party hat and celebrating the day that pancakes became an actual cake.
As for the song, it was cute and seemed to build off the previous part, so the entire song felt like it was building continuously. While the song is good and these girls are very talented, this wasn't my favorite track that's been released recently, not even my favorite Apink song. Sorry for all you Apink fans, but wouldn't you agree?

The last video I'm going to review in this set is “Like Family” by Anda. Usually I don't do reviews of Anda but her last two songs were so damn catchy I decided to give in and give her a chance.
That music video was weird. It took place in a hospital and Anda kept changing clothes with the scene. They always seemed to still be in the hospital but then the hospital turned into a porno (not literally). I'm not sure what to make of the music video.
The song wasn't bad but it wasn't the greatest song I've heard from her. But she looked good. That's all I have to say about this music video. I hope you enjoyed reading through these several music video reviews. Thanks for your support and I'll try to keep updated.
Mamamoo is back! This time with a track called “New York”. I don't know what to expect from this, well yes I do. It's going to slay. Mamamoo is really good at slaying.
The music video for “New York” by Mamamoo was really funny. Wheein is dating a guy from Korea and he thinks she's in New York, so they skype all the time and change the setting to make it appear as if they are in different time zones. They take pictures that have New York in the scene. At the very end, they are in a BBQ tent called New York Broadway and take pictures in the tent. After the video is over, the guy walks by and sees Wheein sitting in the tent and she begs for his forgiveness.
The song, of course slayed. It was a really laid back, chill song. But in this song I'd have to say that Moon Byul stood out the most. Not only did she look incredible in the music video but she had three raps! I personally think Moon Byul makes this group. You can hate if you want.
Infinite is back again with their comeback song “The Eye” and I haven't seen any teasers or anything for this song, so I'm excited to see what this song is all about.
The music video for “The Eye” was a little confusing but I had a bunch of distractions nearby anyway, so I'll have to go and rewatch it. But the overall gist I got from it was that one member was dragged to an abandoned warehouse or tower or something and was remembering all the bad things that happened to him. I could be wrong. Like I said, I didn't really pay attention as much as I should have.
The song was amazing though! This was what I was looking forward to from Infinite when they released “Bad”. This song was high energy while still having that Infinite sound and style. This was definitely their most epic song to date. The instrumentation up to each chorus and the build up at the beginning were phenomenal.
DIA is back with their double title track music videos. The first one is called “Mr. Potter” and the second one is called “The Love”.
“Mr. Potter” music video was a bit weird. I was freaked out at first because the girls in the group were playing with a Ouija board which is bad. But the music video just got weirder after that, especially with the rabbit hanging around them. There were some elements of the world of Harry Potter but not enough for me to be convinced that the music video had to have this type of concept.
The song for me was a mix between AOA Cream, Nine Muses, and Oh My Girl. It had the cute feeling behind it but also that little bit of an edgy side. The song actually reminded me of “Hurt Locker” by Nine Muses and “I'm Jelly Baby” by AOA Cream. Overall it had a good energy to it but I probably won't go out of my way to listen to it again.
“The Love” was a much better music video and I'm not sure if this was the promoted title song but if it wasn't, it should have been. It is such a good song dedicated to fans, not just their fans, but fans all over the world for any k-pop group. That's the vibe I got from it at least. The music video was a bunch of male fans standing on the opposite side of a sheet of glass from DIA. The glass had fan notes and different writings on it. The girls sang the song and towards the end of the song, the glass rose out of its place and the fans and the group were no longer separated. It is a lovely song about the love the groups within k-pop have for their fans and how their fans make everything possible for these groups.
I sincerely apologize for my absence from the k-world. I've been extremely busy and haven't had time to watch music videos, or finish my dramas and various other tasks that I promised I would be up-to-date on. So as a gift for all of your patience and appreciation for the love and support you give me. I'm going to be reviewing like 6 or 7 music videos and I'll post a drama review in the next couple of days. So first off, I'll be watching and reviewing “Promise (I'll Be)” by 2PM. The last song I heard from this group was “My House” back in early 2015, so it'll be nice to hear them again.
The music video was typical 2PM. I feel like they always have an elegant style to their music videos that I love. Basically it was split between scenes of a man and a woman being affectionate towards each other and scenes of the band members dancing. The music video style was more darker of a setting therefore you can guess that it is supposed to be a mature concept music video.
The song was catchy as hell. I loved the different effects and stylizing they did within the song. Not to mention, they all have incredible voices. The song was about a guy remaining faithful to his woman and promising to always be there for her. Although I didn't once see the word “promise” in the on-screen lyrics. It was still an incredible song that definitely caught my attention. It's too bad that JYP won't release any of the company's music onto Spotify.
I'll close this review out here and move onto the next one.
Today is the day! I'm late! I know. I was at work, but here I am now to review Red Velvet's latest music video for “Russian Roulette”. I'm super hyped for this song and album as well because I don't know what to expect from Red Velvet. I think it's going to be bumping though.
The music video was a bit sadistic. The members were trying to kill each other by means of dropping large heavy things on each other much like in a cartoon. The colors in this video were bright (nothing else expected from Red Velvet). There were several parts in this music video that reminded me of Orange Caramel's “My Copycat”. Also Joy looks really good with yellow hair and Seulgi always looks good. Those two stood out the most for me.
The song was crazy addicting. Especially the repeated “be-be-be-beat” in the chorus. I freaking love this song and can't wait to listen to the rest of the album as well as play this song on Superstar SMTOWN. It had elements of the Red, being bright and poppy but there was also something about it that was very soothing and easy on the ears.
