Mad Clown is back with their comeback song “Lie” featuring Lee Hae Ri of Davichi. This is another group I'm not very familiar with because I haven't really listened to their music before this. Davichi of course I know but for Mad Clown, this will be the first experience with them.
The music video for “Lie” was quite depressing actually. The video showed a couple who had great times, but then their relationship was falling apart because of a lie. There were scenes in the video where the guy was so frustrated with the girl that he pushed her away and threw his cell phone while yelling at her.
I really enjoyed the song. I've been really into k-hip hop lately and this song has a very smooth rap over a slow, almost ballad type of song. The rap lines paired up with the lovely voice of Lee Hae Ri is just breathtaking. Such a great song and pair up.
This has been my review of “Lie” by Mad Clown featuring Lee Hae Ri of Davichi. I hope you guys enjoyed it and also Happy Thanksgiving to all my supporters out there. I want to say I'm so thankful that I have such wonderful support from you guys. Please like, comment, and share this post all over social media if you can. I much appreciate it. See ya in the next one.
Sejeong, a member of Gugudan and I.O.I releases a new solo song called “Flower Way” with the music video being produced by Zico. Gugudan and I.O.I are two groups I know very little about. I.O.I is supposedly a group made up of different members from different groups in various companies. It is only a temporary thing seeing as they already disbanded, I believe. Gugudan is a girl group that debuted earlier this year under Jellyfish Entertainment. Also, apparently this song is a ballad.
“Flower Way” is a very heartwarming music video about a girl (Sejeong) who is reminiscing on her past and growing up. Each scene is paired up with a scene from her past when her mother used to help her with everything. The little girl they used for Sejeong as a child was perfect because she looked just like her. This music video did its purpose though. It made me also think about my past and look back on things how they used to be.
The song was very beautiful. The emotions felt through Sejeong's vocal ability were incredible. It actually felt like she herself was missing her childhood and the way things were. She definitely has a beautiful voice and I hope to see her pursue some more mature content rather than the cutesy style associated with Gugudan and I.O.I. I guess we'll see what happens.
I hope you guys enjoyed my review of “Flower Way” by Sejeong of Gugudan and I.O.I. Please show your support by liking this post and commenting and sharing it as well. Thank you all for the support you've given me up to this point. I'll see ya in the next one.
Jea of Brown Eyed Girls just made a comeback with two songs. One that is fairly short called “You O'clock” and another one that I assume is the official comeback track called “Winter, It's You”. I don't really follow BEG so I don't know which member this is. I only really follow Gain.
“You O'clock” is a really short track where Jea sings about 5 lines, so I'll add the video in this but I'm not going to talk about it.
“Winter, It's You” is a piano ballad song with extremely powerful vocals. I've always known that the ladies in BEG have incredible voices. Jea kind of reminds me of Solji from EXID; in her appearances and in the way she sings. Maybe that's just me. The music video for this song was Jea spending time with a boyfriend, maybe past tense because it seemed like a song about looking back. They hung out in two main locations, in or near his camper (RV) and in his studio where he would record music. The reason I say it is a past tense relationship is because there is the footage she took of him playing guitar being played back. Everything in this video seems like a memory.
The song shook me. Jea's voice is incredible, but I'm assuming most of my readers already knew that. The song grew gradually from a soft piano ballad into a powerful and emotional display of Jea's vocal ability. I'm extremely impressed and can't wait to listen to the rest of this album. I may not be completely behind BEG but I can still support their solo careers.
This has been my review for the music video for “Winter, It's You” by Jea of the Brown Eyed Girls. I hope you enjoyed my review and will continue to come to my website for reviews and other k-pop things. Thanks for all the love you guys have been giving me these past months. Did you enjoy the song? Had you listened to Jea before this or are you new to her solo material like me?
Vixx, the kings of concepts are back with a new music video for their song “Milky Way”. Honestly, I think the last video they released was “The Closer” which was a good song, but they've done better before. Let's see if they can top that.
“Milky Way” was a music video dedicated to the fans. It showed the interactions Vixx as a group has had with the fans on stage and at fan meetings. It definitely showed that Vixx is a down-to-earth group that are actually humans as well. There was a segment of the video where the track was pushed into the background and the audience response was pulled forward and took over the video for a short while. Really cool video, not really a concept video however.
The song was nice and chill. The vibe it gave off was kind of low-key chillstep. Low toned synthesizers with a punchy low end made the beat of the song, but their vocals were on point as expected and the song as a whole I thought was a lot better than their last release. I could listen to this song on repeat for some time and not get sick of it.
This song is perfect for just chilling with friends or maybe inside a bar, softly on in the background. I hope you enjoyed this song and my review of it. Thanks to all of you for your support and also thanks to Vixx and all the other k-pop artists for existing. Please like this post and share it as well as comment your thoughts on it. See ya in the next one.
Earlier this year, at least I think it was this year, Meng Jia, a member of JYP's girl group Miss A called it quits with the company and moved to a company that she probably believed would treat her better. The year's not even up and she's making her solo debut with her song “Drip” which I'm hoping is going to rock my socks off. I guess we'll find out. By the way, the teasers for this release were way confusing because there were 3 separate and different dates that the music video was supposed to be released.
Anyone else getting Hyuna vibes from this release? So the music video seemed to be Jia and her gang abducting a man and torturing him. Then they cover his head and throw him back out into the tunnel they abducted him from. I'm not sure what this has to do with dripping unless they sexually tortured him, which that would make a lot more sense. The entire music video was just Jia and her gang dancing and flashes of scenes from the storyline Banana Culture were trying to piece together. Not the best use of footage. I would have liked to see more storyline and less of Jia twerking, nothing against Jia.
This song is promising for Jia and her solo career. However, like I mentioned, it sounds too much like a Hyuna song. I love Hyuna and I love 4Minute but I'm not a fan of Hyuna trying so hard to be sexy, much like CL. I don't feel like it's their true personalities. Jia put out a great song that hopefully will gain some following. The synthesizers in the intro and verses was the perfect blend of hard biting and hidden undertone. I loved how they built up towards the chorus. My favorite part of this song was actually Jia singing in the pre chorus because I felt like this part of the song had the most moment. It was climbing higher and building on itself. However, I'm not a fan of the chorus. Not that I don't like a good drop, but first off the high frequency tones are annoying and if you're going to do a drop, you should build it up more and then drop it low. This song seriously reminded me of “How's This” by Hyuna and in my own personal opinion, that is her worst song to date.
Sorry I kind of rambled on about the song and various other artists it seemed to be influenced by, but I hope you enjoyed this review of “Drip” by Meng Jia. Hopefully this was helpful and useful for you. Thank you for the support and please like this post and comment and share it if possible. See ya guys in the next one (which hopefully is Seohyun, but probably won't be).
SHINee is back once again with their comeback release for what I believe is their 1 of 1 Repackaged album called 1 and 1. I loved “1 of 1” and thought it was a jam. I still listen to it all the time in my car. But now we're going to see what SHINee has to offer this time around. I heard it is a more solemn song than “1 of 1” was. We'll find out I guess.
That was fantastic. The music video had a lot of symbolism in it. There was the cross, the burning car, the guns, and many more. This video was trying to tell a story while still being very artistic. I enjoy that about this music video. The people who stood out to me in this video were Onew and Jong Hyun. Maybe they had more screen time or maybe they were more passionate during their on screen time. Either way, those two stuck out to me more than any of the others. Well, except Taemin and his ridiculously tight pants.
The song was really chill. Solemn is a good way to describe it. However, I really enjoyed the rapid fire, filtered out hi-hats during the verses. Those were unique and added a distinctness to the song. On top of that, can we talk about Minho rapping? That was awesome! Not the best rap I've heard, but Minho rapped! It's interesting how even groups like SHINee that are primarily pop groups are implementing rap lines into their songs. The song felt like it wasn't progressing, in a good way. It felt very steady but at the same time unstable. I enjoyed that about this song.
I actually enjoyed this song more than “1 of 1” and I loved the hell out of that song, so I can't wait to download this song into my library. I hope you enjoyed my review of “Tell Me What to Do” by the one and only SHINee. Please like this post and comment and share it as well all over social media. Thanks for all the support guys and I'll see ya in the next one.
Imfact is a group that I have no idea about. I don't know who they are under. I don't know how many members are in their group. I only know that it's a boy group, I think. They made their comeback with a song called “Feel So Good” and I'm about to review it.
In the music video, the group was trying to steal a tape. This must mean that something is coming that has to do with that tape. Most of the music video was them running around in what looked like an abandoned factory. The video was good, but I don't like that shaky camera work. I know it adds an effect to the production but personally I don't like when the camera intentionally shakes around like that. Other than that the video seemed pretty good quality.
I enjoyed the song. Here are my gripes with it. I'm a fan of trap music. I really am, but I don't like the fact that k-pop is headed in that direction. Trap music is something I listen to when I'm feeling especially crunk. Other than that, I don't listen to it. The fact that this song is almost entirely based around that style bugs me. There are different levels of trap that you can do and they tried to go hard in this song. I say try because I don't feel like they achieved it very well. The verses and chorus were this dirty trap beat but then the build ups and pre choruses were super melodic poppy music. The contrast was too high for me. If you're going to go trap, do trap. Don't mesh it with boy band pop. It doesn't work.
Well, this has been my first exposure to Imfact. I'm not saying I'm writing them off yet, but I'll be more cautious with my next listen. Please like this review and comment on it and share it all over the social medias. Thanks for your support and I'm out for tonight. Unless another comeback comes out tonight.
Do you guys remember Jiyoon? Jeon Jiyoon from 4Minute? She was one of the rappers in the group alongside Hyuna. Well, recently she had a comeback which was FIRE! But according to my YouTube feed, she released a new video for her other song on her single album, Day and Night. The song is called “Magnet” and personally I think it's an incredible song with some great raps.
Damn Jiyoon is sexy! The music video wasn't anything super amazing. It was essentially a dance practice video but damn Jiyoon knows how to move. I honestly don't know what else to say about it because she leaves me speechless. Also, the song is of course amazing, I already mentioned. I usually just put in on play and do whatever I'm doing but I listened to it tonight and actually listened and I have to say her second rap is my favorite part of this song.
I don't have anything else to say so I'll call it here. I hope you enjoyed this review of “Magnet” by Jiyoon. Have you listened to her album yet? It's only two songs. If you haven't, you definitely should. Thanks for the support guys. Like this review and don't forget to comment on it and share this all over social media. See ya in the next one!
Kyuhyun from Super Junior is back with two new music videos. “Blah Blah” and “Still” are two new music videos that have been released by the artist of SM Entertainment. You know what I'm here for. I'm going to review both of these songs. So buckle up and prepare for some awesome music because I'm assuming the songs will be awesome.
For some reason, throughout the entire music video of “Blah Blah”, I thought he was trying to get over a former lover until I saw him in the car with the bouquet. Then suddenly my mind flashed back to the opening scene where his car was being towed off because of an accident. One thing that bothered me though was the fact that he was singing while getting his hair cut. I'm sure the barber was pissed as hell because this customer kept moving and mouthing words while getting his hair cut.
“Blah Blah” was a typical Kyuhyun song. He's an excellent singer, probably my favorite from Super Junior but his songs are always so slow. I know he's a ballad singer but come on, do something even a little more upbeat. There was a ton of piano and violins in the backing track and a guitar solo at one point. I hope his next video is a little more upbeat to be honest.
The two videos are connected. Somehow, they are interrelated. In “Still”, Kyuhyun is sitting alone at a coffee shop where in walks his ex-girlfriend with another guy. The whole music video is flashes back to when they were together. I'm assuming this video is before “Blah Blah” though. Near the end of the video, the same campfire scene shows up, proving the videos are connected. I need to know how they are related.
The song for “Still” was definitely more interesting but I mean, come on Kyuhyun, let's get some life into you. It's like someone destroyed you in a past life. But seriously, this song was a lot more enjoyable. The piano was more melodic than the last one and the drums and different instrumentation was excellent. Great job Kyuhyun and SM Entertainment.
Well I hope you enjoyed both my reviews for Kyuhyun's new comeback songs. Please like this post if you found these reviews helpful or interesting in any way. Also don't forget to comment on the post and share it all over social media. See ya in the next one.
T-ara is back with a new music video “Tiamo” which apparently means I love you some Latin based language. For some reason though, I heard that T-ara was disbanding. Maybe that's my imagination or some hyped rumor floating among the netizens but it doesn't look like they have put the brakes on this thing quite yet.
Christmas must've come early because that music video was very Christmasy. I think what was going on in the video was the girl looking in the mirror, I think her name is Jiyeon, was looking in on her emotions. The mirror reflected what she was really feeling. Inside the mirror, the girl was looking for keys to try to escape the winter landscape. In the end of the music video, Jiyeon reached up to the mirror to touch it but then put her hand back down. It's almost as if to say she was almost ready to get over her sad emotions and move on from there, but then refused.
The song was actually really Christmasy as well. I liked it though. It was a lot less hyped than their previous title tracks, but it was still very good. T-ara is one of those groups that I really like and enjoy seeing new releases from, but never have gotten into them. I think it's about time to start opening my perspective on them.
This has been my review of “Tiamo” by T-ara. I hope you enjoyed it and like always, leave a comment down below, like and share this post all over social media. Thank you again for the support you guys give me and I'll see ya in the next one.
