This is such a chill song! I’ve been vibing here, carried along by the melody, ha. Just what I needed after a mega stressful work week with multiple 10-11 hour days. The vocals are sooo smooth and calming. I’ve always loved Jinyoung’s voice and he’s improved quite a bit over the years. The songs he’s composed for GOT7 are pretty much always the ones I seem to navigate towards. There’s just something about them that “speak” to me. 🙂
Here’s a live version with 편지 (Letter) as a bonus song. As he tells in the video, 편지 is perhaps his fave song of this new solo album of his (Chapter 0: WITH) and a genre he wanted to try out. I really like it too, it reminds me of the korean folk inspired kpop ballads from early 2000s… ah, the nostalgia.
Well, techincally it’s just half of Shinhwa but still. 😀 My fist and forever kpop love. It’s been SO long since they were active as a group. I’d more or less given up hope ever seeing them together again, so half of Shinhwa is better than none.
Flash is such a fun, happy bop and I just can’t stop moving along. It puts a big smile on my face.
Here’s the performance video (one take version). These ahjussis still got it. 😍
Well, it’s actually not that far off in the past, but it is a blast from my kpop past. 😀 In one of the comment threads at kfangurl’s Queen In Hyun’s Man group watch post, there was a discussion about Ji Hyun Woo’s music carreer. This got me thinking about his first band, The Nuts whom I was a big fan of back in the day. Which in turn sent me to my old tumblr account in search of a tribute post I once made for them. Yup, I used to have a kpop dedicated tumblr. It didn’t last very long and got left by the wayside when I lost interest in it, ha. I never cancelled the account though, so it’s still around, gathering dust. Anyway, I got the notion of re-posting the whole thing here (with a few updates and edits). Might be of interest to some… or not.
This year has not been particularly great so far, so it was a nice surprise to hear that the guys would have a comeback in May. And here it is! Such a happy-go-lucky, summer-ry song. This made my day… no, my month. 😍
For someone who’s not an Aghase I sure post a lot about GOT7 but in my 10+ years of following kpop, they are the only group whose music truly speaks to me. I do like them as a group too, there’s just something about them that feels so organic and wholesome. 😀 Anyway, when they said that they are not going anywhere, they really ment it. To everyone’s surprise GOT7 just dropped a new song, totally out of the blue. Even cynical olde me got tears in her eyes watching the video. 🙂
I knew that GOT7’s exclusive contract with JYPE was up but somehow I had not internalised that it would actually be right now, ha. I don’t follow my faves outside promotions which means I don’t follow any fandom content either, I just don’t have the time for that $hit anymore. Otherwise I would have been more aware of the situation at hand. I knew of course that the chances of them re-signing were pretty slim, so the news didn’t come as any sort of surprise. Can’t deny that I’m a bit sad though. It’s another end of an era for me. Continue reading →
Yes, I know, I know. I ‘m MIA for months and then out pops another kpop post. But, but… it’s GOT7! 😀 And their new album is great! Color me surprised when I realised I can buy it here (It is kinda pricey though, but I don’t purchase physical albums very often these days). There are now so many hoops you have to jump through to buy anything from outside of EU.
I have always loved the fact that all of the members of A.C.E are vocalists, even the rappers. Well, the vocalists can rap too, so… 🙂 They all have a slightly different vocal color, which blend nicely to make a lovely, harmonious whole. It’s a pity that A.C.E is still rather underrated, but here are just too many groups around these days. It’s hard to get ahead no matter how good you are, especially if the group is from a smaller company.
Anyways, the vocal line of A.C.E just released a lovely ballad as part of producer Hong Chang Woo’s music project and they promoted it in couple of music shows. An additional way to get the group some recognition. Continue reading →
Yes, it’s another kpop post and I do apologize, but GOT7 is just came back and I’m loving it! I know I’ve been claming I don’t have a bias group anymore but I may have been lying through my teeth. LOL! I am beginning to think I do have one. 😀 Continue reading →
I don’t pay much attention to the yearly influx of noobs in kpop anymore. There are just too many debuting each year and most of them sound and look more or less the same. That said, every now and then a group comes along and makes me sit up and take notice. Usually it’s a combination of a song that I like from get go and a MV that is eye catching in some way. I also don’t have time to follow the content these noobs put out in various medias, so I don’t really get to know the members in a way I did with my older faves. It’s a YT video here and a variety apparence there. But, at least I’m still able to learn their names, and possibly positions pretty quickly. 🙂 Continue reading →
