DEAN is one of my absolute favourite soloists in Korea. Not only does he have a tonal difference that no one else has but the beats he sings on are so catered to him and this special tone. Of all the DEAN songs I could talk about “Outro” is one of my favourite ones.
So for those who call themselves iKONICs – SING IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS! – and for those who don’t really know what iKON is all about – y’all need to sit down for a few days and immerse yourselves in the whirlwind of craziness they’re known for.Read More »
MONSTA X is one of my favourite groups for a lot of reasons. Although I have like a lot of their albums their most recent The Code is their first album that I’ve enjoyed every song. Although I would’ve liked to talk about songs like “Dramarama” and “Tropical Night” which are a different genre and vibe than their normal sound, I wanted to talk about “Now Or Never” – a song that highlights all of MONSTA Xs strongest points.
I’ve just come straight from watching an interview from The Zach Sang show on YouTube. For those who kept up with the interviews BTS had while they were in America for the AMAs you’ll be familiar with who Zach Sang is. He was the first interviewer during their stay that actually talked about their music and took time to do his research about their history, back catalogue and also about their recent work with UNICEF.

There have been so many amazing albums from 2017 and Taeyang’s White Night album is one of them. Not only are the title songs fantastic but the b-sides are all so cohesive and so well produced that I can’t deny shortlisting it as one of the best from 2017.
Time for my final 2017 video which is none other than my Top 17 Songs of 2017. Last year was fantastic for K-Pop. I’m not talking about how it’s starting to blow up internationally but more focusing on the actual content released. I’m still trying to watch and listen to a wider range of artists and groups and I can definitely feel my music tastes changing.
It was extremely hard to pick a Top 17 but I did get there in the end. I love watching videos of peoples favourite K-Pop songs – I feel that you learn more about the person and what style of music really attracts them.
Last week I posted a video of my first listen to EXOs Universe Winter Album on YouTube and I said something that a lot of people could’ve kicked off about. I’m not a big account at all but I’m surprised I haven’t had any hate or nasty comments on that particular video.Read More »
