This may be a bit of an obscure album for me to review but I really like their song “Blah” which was released at the start of the month to the point where I’ve included it in my JANUARY 2018 KPOP PLAYLIST – this post will be up at the very end of the month. For those of you who enjoy Korean R&B then you should definitely listen to this album.
I love their debut mini-album Fantasy that released at the end of last year so I was excited to listen to both the title track and the whole album as well. Although I had high standards walking into this album, I walked out of it with a different impression of JBJ – not the same impression but still a high one.
Although I have a sometimes love hate relationship with KASSY, I was extremely excited to hear this album due to my love of title track “I Want Love”. I am still getting used to her singing on tracks as I’m used to her rapping – she was a contestant of ‘Unpretty Rapstar’ – but I am growing to appreciate her singing voice as time goes on.
I missed the hype that was IOI but I do know of CHUNGHA. Her last comeback before her most recent one was pretty good but I was interested to see what direction she was going to go in this time around. Going for a girl group – regardless of the imminent disbanding of IOI – to a solo artist is a great way to become instantly successful. She’s already earned fans through Produce 101 so her popularity is bound to increase the more and more comebacks she has.
I’ve never heard of JOONIL JUNG – or JUNG JOONIL – before so I was very interested after watching his MV for “Say Yes”. I found his voice to be unique enough to spark my interest so in turn, I was extremely excited to hear the rest of his album Elephant.
Due to only being a part of the K-Pop world since mid-2015 I did miss the INFINITE train though I can appreciate them for what they do and the things they’re so famous for – knife dancing, their retro sound and being incredible live singers. Because of this I will be reviewing this album by itself without drawing specific comparisons between their prior album releases.
Being that this is my first listen to a full N.FLYING album I have to give all thanks to their title track “Hot Potato”. Taking the strange song title and the comedic MV the song is really good. Because of my interest in the title track, listening to this album was an absolute must for me!
