Wait, what month is it? Oh yeah, April. Honestly, January and February were filled with some really… mentionable releases. Whether they were really good or really bad, almost every song on this list had to be mentioned for one reason or another. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity and let 2014’s start K-pop music fly by! Enjoy the joint January and February edition of The K-pop Round Up!
Nothing like good ol’ Brown Eyed Girls to ease the pain of mainstream K-pop. You all should know that BEG is one of my all-time favorite girl groups. This group embodies everything great that K-pop has to offer. None of the hard dance tracks, flashy lights, or ridiculous get-ups can challenge the talent that oozes out of the pores of each member of this group. Guess what, guys!? K-pop songs can have meaning and they can feel like you’re listening to an actual song rather than a mish-mash of electro beats & beeps. Brown Eyed Girls prove that no matter the age, any hard-working, talented artist can make it for as long as they want in the Korean music business. Black Box is BEG’s 5th studio album and was released on July 29th, 2013. My favorite tracks are italicized.
Back so soon? Yesterday, I brought to you my favorite J-pop songs of 2012. Today, I’ll be bringing you the K-pop counterpart. Last year, my list was definite and I had no doubts doing it. However, this year I gathered a total of 30 songs altogether that I enjoyed! I was sure I was going to explode making this list. But here it is, my Top 10 Favorite K-pop Songs of 2012.
Today’s post is going to be brief, but I really wanted to get this down.
There seems to be this lovely, civilized debate circulating the K-pop universe that is comparing Ga In’s Bloom to Hyun Ah’s Ice Cream. Oh, did I say civilized? I meant, war zone between the “slut-shamers” and the “whore praisers.” It has irked my nerves more than the netizens accusing T-ara of bullying Hwayoung. It’s time for the shit to STOP.
Sorry guys, no PBSpam! this weekend. Yesterday was hella hectic and I had no time to finish and post it up. I’ll try my best to get it up this Saturday 3: And with that, I bring you week 10 of Top! Series: Favorite Korean Artists. Btw, first Kpop post! ;D
