  • I really like the MV for Sejeong's comeback

    Comment


    • I will certainly take your recommendations, abi.. I should mention that I liked NCT 127's recent mini album as well as ITZY's. A lot of my knowledge about certain groups has come from watching Knowing Brothers, which I have been addicted to recently.

      It's interesting that both of you think TWICE might not take off in America. Based off a recent scanning on YouTube(not scientific of course, lol), they certainly do have a large North American fanbase, albeit maybe not as large as in other places. As for the English barrier, I'm not sure if it's as much as a hindrance like it used to be. I see groups like ITZY doing well with their promotions in America.

      It will be interesting to see when they'll make their splash over here, due to the whole Coronavirus pandemic. I'm guessing it'll probably be in the Fall.

      • Mugen Yay, get ready for the spams.

        If you're into the likes of PartyNextDoor, Bryson Tiller, 6LACK, Tinashe, etc. then check these out:
        Dean - Bonnie & Clyde
        NCT U - The 7th Sense
        ZICO - Anti (feat. G.Soul)
        Crush - woo ah
        Sik-K - party(SHUT DOWN) (feat. Crush)
        Dean - Pour Up (feat. ZICO)

        + Some more English bops from Dean:
        I'm Not Sorry (feat. Eric Bellinger)
        Put My Hands On You (feat. Anderson .Paak)
        Here & Now (feat. Mila J)
        love (feat. Syd)
        Dante's Creek

        If you're into the likes of Rihanna, The Pussycat Dolls, Destiny's Child, Chris Brown, etc. (the more Poppier side of R&B/Hip-Hop) then you might like these (aside from Blackpink of course):
        Red Velvet - Bad Boy
        EXO - Call Me Baby
        CL - Hello Bitches
        Block B - Shall We Dance
        Taeyang - Eyes, Nose, Lips
        4Minute - Crazy
        NCT 127 - Cherry Bomb

        I think those are enough as for now. And you better stan NCT, all of their units (NCT U, NCT 127 & NCT Dream) have lots of Urban-leaning bops.

        As for TWICE, hmmm they might have a big following in the US but I really don't see them getting played on US radio and charting high on Billboard as what BLACKPINK or BTS did. And I don't see them trying to adapt their sound as well since JYP already has ITZY whose music is pretty much quite already Americanized.

              • ^FINALLY a good song from Winner!

                The song is nice and the video is hilarious, I love it! I love how carefree they are (both their images and in real life) compared to other idols.

                Comment


                • ^ Yeah, i realy like this as well! The video is hilarious indeed, the concept reminds me of Pentagon's Humph and Naughty Boy.

                  • I like this more than Nun Nu Nan Na

                    Comment



                    • Not a fan of this. Soyeon's rap doesn't seem to fit, and the chorus isn't good imho. And Shuhua's part is just picked form Lion, she deserved a better part. I realy like Yuqi's and Miyeon's parts though

                      Comment


                      • cignature's new song is amazing - I love their vibe.

                        (G)I-Idle's comeback.... is good! Nothing tops Hann for me though. I like this group alot, they're definitely doing their own thing, I just don't think they're a group I'll ever stan or be addicted to though

                        • I like the new (G)I-DLE song.

                          Oh my God!

                          The whole EP is a bop, and yes including the English version.

                            • abi and Colbie, I finally got around to listening to your recommendations and they were all good. Some of the songs(like Block B for example) I actually heard before because I have a friend that's also into K-Pop. And Red Velvet is great, right up my alley.

                              I do like the new (G)I-DLE song. Interesting that there's an English version and it's a little bit more direct in it's lyrics. Plus, this could play on the radio here.

                                • Mugen Yay! Glad you liked them. Red Velvet also has the English version of "Bad Boy" by the way. Also, other artists like NCT 127, Taeyang & CL has a lot of English songs as well.

                                  • Anyway, as some of you have probably known, I'm hosting the UKMIX Top Urban/R&B Albums of the Decade and you can click here to see the rules & how to vote. I've tried to come up with several K-Pop (and Korean-related) albums that are eligible, and it comes down to this list below:

                                    Spoiler!


                                    Some of these are probably more Pop rather than Urban but at the end it's up to you to decide.

                                    Also, I finally got the chance to listen to some of BTS' earlier records and wow they've changed A LOT. Their sound was very Hip-Hop back in the day.

                                        You gotta vote then!

                                        Also, I just learnt that 2 of Winner members are apparently enlisting to the military. One member already did sometimes around last week and another one will follow this week.

                                          Oh yes, I'm aware of the English version of "Bad Boy." Love it.

                                          Also, I'm surprised no one has posted it here yet, but it looks like we're getting a comeback from GOT7 on 4/20 in the form of a mini album called DYE and it looks like the new song is called "Not By The Moon."

                                          • Let's go! Haechan be working overtime like there's no tomorrow though, poor boy.

                                            • ^ My boy Haechan yeaaaaassssss. Honestly so so so excited for NCT Dream comeback!

                                              And even more exciting news about the Dream unit itself! Dream is going to stay as 7 members (incl. Mark!!!) and can rotate members each comeback which is great news for the 5 members not in 127, they can get some more promotions. More Renjun and Jaemin please!

                                              • crazycool Haechan is making banks!



                                                NCT is really THAT group at the moment. Part of me wishes they would release more public-friendly, crossover hits like EXO or BTS but part of me also wishes they wouldn't get bigger than they are right now. Idk, I just don't want the stans to get cocky and toxic I guess.

                                                        I completely agree with this. I love EXO (pre-debut stan) but BTS I have never enjoyed.... I don't know what it is about BTS that just never clicks with me. They're impressive performers but I just do not listen to any of their music.

                                                        Kick It has been incredible for NCT 127 - it's their highest charted in Korea and best selling NCT album overall. But I do think they're going to remain quite "niche" which I am totally here for.

                                                        And Yes about Haechan.... he's working incredibly hard, but he's a young man and he's got the energy and stamina. He's so integral to both 127 and DREAM
