Sam Kim is the only Korean soloist that is so close to my perfect vocal. There’s something about the sound of his voice that constantly gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. Although Mama Don’t Worry wasn’t the first song I heard of his – it was actually Think About’ Chu feat. Loco – but it was the first song that I felt a deep connection to. After hearing this song and looking up the translations I was absolutely sold and have since become a massive fan of his.
So this song is a lot different than the other songs I’ve mentioned so far. I wouldn’t class it as “K-Pop” but it is clearly still in Korean. It’s also a lot slower than the pervious songs so I’m excited to talk about it.
This song was another one that I just stumbled across. I’m so happy I did listen to it with open ears because it is by far one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard.
Another GOT7 song is what this list needs. Let Me wasn’t a song I immediately fell in love with but the more I hear the more addictive and sweet the chorus becomes.
The fact that I have a SNSD member in this list is a shock to even me. For those of you who don’t know – I’m not a massive follower of Girls Generation or girl groups in general. For some reason I struggle with them a lot of the time but I’m trying to get more used to them.
Seohyun’s solo took my breath away and as soon as I heard this album I fell in love. I know Taeyeon gets a lot of attention through her solo activities but to me, Seohyun’s album was more my cup of tea, hence why Love and Affection is featured in this list.
One of my favourite things about being so active on YouTube is the fact I stumble across gems like this song. A lot of the time I watch songs teasers and only decide to react to a song if the teasers sound good. Queue Know Me by DPR LIVE.
Yes, another BTS song! But believe it or not, it was really hard for me to pick songs with the letter J so you’ll have to deal with my Bangtan fangirling for a lil bit.
BTS is great for their upbeat bangers but I actually prefer their softer, more ballad-type songs. I don’t know if it’s because their voices and tonal differences inside their own group is what helps or the fact the members are so hands on with all their songs but I’m very attached to a lot of their ballads. Including Just One Day.Read More »
Oh Hyuk is one of my favourite solo vocalists in Korea at the moment. Although Jesus Lived In a Motel Room isn’t my favourite song on this album, I couldn’t not include a song of theirs. Oh Hyuk’s voice is so soulful and full of something I can’t quite define so I feel like he, and the rest of the band, should get more time to shine than they do.Read More »
