The latest with Kpop: B1A4

“I can’t. I’m having a music burnout,” I said when my sister asked me to listen to a new band.

“Oh really?” was her response.

Sure enough, I crawled out of the hole that I was in from getting a job not many people agreed on and quit not long after. And I found this Kpop group called B1A4 from watching their latest release ‘Rollin’. They sure looked like another one of those BTS-types with snazzy artistic videos that had deep meanings.

It’s okay, I thought, taking in the One-Republic-vibes I was getting from the choir-heavy chorus. My gaze wandered to the side and I decided to watch their dance practice videos on a whim. I clicked on ‘Lonely’, the 2nd suggestion, because I don’t like clicking on 1st suggestions for some weird reason. Oh, what a sweet choice I made then.

I watched almost all of the dance videos, quickly falling for their unique dances and especially how most of their moves ‘hit’ the tempo/beat (forgive my poor musical language). Judging by my lack of balking at their music videos, I’d like to say they are a group of good-looking men (keke). Normally I cower behind my pillow when I watch new groups because some have fierce looks/features that just hit me. All of them are pretty easy on the eyes~

Gongchan, Sandeul, Jinyoung, Baro, CNU

I don’t know much about them because I’ve been busy trying to swallow down every performance video before the work week starts, but visually Gongchan caught my eye with his cute puppy eyes. Vocally, Sandeul is the one for me. Acting-wise, Baro impressed me with his emotion in the MVs. Surprisingly, I quickly warmed up to CNU, maybe because of his tall frame, energetic dancing and trot-like voice that reminds me of Heechul. As for Jinyoung, he’s pretty hard to miss and reading about his musical abilities made me look up to him. Since he wrote most of their songs, wow.. just wow, I love them so much.

Their sound is different with a lot of guitar-riffs and mid-tempo beats. Listen to ‘Tried to Walk’ and that’s the kind of soft spot I have for acoustic guitars. Their lyrics either break my heart to bits or lift my spirits to the sky. There is no in between. I can’t tell which song I like more than another so here I am, trying to repeat each song as many times because it’s that good.

I don’t know why but I love this MV so much?!! Or all of their MVs, to be honest, because they are generally so aesthetically pleasing to watch. And the boys are always so dramatic and into their roles~

This dorky dance put such a big smile on this depressed person’s face that I instantly knew I was going to fall harder for them. Fact: If I smile while watching your video, it means there’s a 99.9% chance that I’m in love with you. P.S. The ending verse is so freaking cute.

It’ll be illegal for me to not post my favorite dance video of 2017 so here it is.

Stop being so pretty, I can’t post enough of your pictures and videos, y’know!! Love ya, guys!

Everything you need to know about ASTRO

Wow, if you thought ASTRO was a boy group to overlook because of their bright and cutesy school-boy image, you have another think coming (I read too much Enid Blyton as a kid). Between Victon and Astro, I’m having a good time discovering their music. I mean, look at all my Astro cuties in this video below:

Hands down, this song is so good and their sharp dance moves and synchronization are mesmerizing! Their voices are better than I remember and if I’m fangirling, I’ll have to say that I can’t decide between Rocky and Eunwoo.

Again – Astro

I’m just going to throw in this lyric video. I like to see line distributions for some strange reason and this song seems to have some of the best line distributions. I can’t imagine them switching lines at all.

Voice to the New World (mini album) – Victon

Here’s Victon’s first mini album. My favorite tracks are 1, 2, 4, and 5.

Ready (2nd mini album) – Victon

And here’s the 2nd mini album. All the songs are good but my favorite is 3. I love the way Hanse starts the song.. actually I think he starts all the songs in this album?! Seungsik and Sejun as the two main vocalists complement each other so well. I can’t identify Subin’s voice so I hope they give him a few more lines.

So Good – Taeyang

This song by Taeyang was released today so I have to put it here. Taeyang killin’ it as always.

All these songs are right up my alley. Enjoy.

Victon

Alright, you saw my Tweet. Now watch the video if you haven’t. I had to share because this song is really good.

The dance is cute, too. So watch that, too.

This song started it for me.

I’m growing fond of this one.

My favorite is Seungsik because his voice <3. This post was brought to you by ‘5 minutes before making dinner and I need to make sure you know who Victon is’. I may come back in and add more. Or I might do a whole new post if I have time to go watch their interview videos…..

Really, really

Have you heard the new Winner songs? Because they are back and better than ever. I seriously love Winner so much. Kind of miss TaeHyun but it’s just going to be 4 of them and their comeback has proven that they still haven’t lost touch with their appeal.

I’m disappointed that they only came out with 2 songs in their new album Fate Number For but I’m quite sure they’ll be releasing more new music soon. I love that they made one fast song and a slow one. Their fashion concept for this comeback is not that great but who cares when their vocals are so good?

Now listen to it!! Okay, wait. Get this – they dance in this comeback!! So cute. If you have time, watch the dance practice, too.

XOXO,

A big Winner fan.

Good afternoon, February

I realize that it’s been two full months since I’ve blogged here. My ‘I’m busy and uninspired’ excuse is pretty stale but it’s the only one I have. But whatevs because I found these golden videos and I need to share.

My Home – GOT7 is pretty much the best discovery of last week. And this 360 degree video?? It blew my mind! I can spin the screen and look at ALL my lovelies?! Technology is so winning right now. Important observations: JB being all cool (swoon), JinYoung handsome-ing all day every day, YoungJae dancing/floating in his oversized sweater, Mark singing the bridge, Jackson being Jackson, and the maknaes being maknaes.

And in case you’re like me and can’t get enough of JinYoung being hyper and dancing on the road, this video is for you.

Other GOT7 songs that were previously not on our playlist but are now: Feels Good, She’s a Monster, Dreamin’, Mayday, Hey.

You Were Beautiful – Day6

JYP is really killing it at bringing good, new voices onto the music scene. We were video-surfing the other day and came across this video. This is not your typical Kpop group, by the way. These guys can sing AND play instruments. I definitely want to see more of them this year.

And in other news, my sister is loving TaeYang more than I expected. LOL.

That’s all I have. See you when I run out of excuses not to blog here.

Shawol forever

I take back what I said about Shinee not being close as a group. I have watched enough of their interactions to say that they are, undoubtedly, close. And yes, I have a favorite. Taemin forever because I’m secretly still 16 at heart. And turtlenecks on Taemin forever.

Other members: Proud mama JongHyun when talking about/watching Taemin perform, kind-hearted flaming charisma Minho, dork tofu leader Onew, and fierce dancer/fashionista + say-it-like-it-is Key. I will go to a SHINee World concert after I go to my first Super Show whenever that may be lol.

Here are some of my favorite songs:

Don’t Let Me Go – SHINee

Favorite song right now. I’ve been listening to this a lot.

Feel Good and 1 of 1 – SHINee

Winter Wonderland – SHINee

Your Number – SHINee

The song that started it all. This is one of the first few SHINee videos that I watched and thought, ‘this is pretty good’.

Enjoy their fab dancing, especially Key’s.

Still GOT7 week

I wanted to write about my week and tidbits on what has been happening on this end lately but I’ve calmed down a bit so I’ll turn this post into another GOT7 appreciation post. Hooray!

I love Jackson and JB but right now I love Jinyoung. He’s good-looking and I like his voice *_* He dresses well but I think he looks better dressed down… that’s just me though.

What about the others? Youngjae is so adorable, especially when he tries to mimic Mark or Jackson’s English. He’s like a sea otter, I have no idea why. BamBam seems like the mild type and he balances out the AmeriThaiKong (Mark, BamBam, Jackson) part of the group so well. Mark is unexpectedly quiet and easygoing, and it’s hard to tell that he’s the oldest.

It’s interesting to see every KPop group’s maknae (the youngest member) because you never know what kind of maknae they are until you watch their videos. Poor Yugyeom, the maknae, gets pranked too many times for their hidden camera episodes but I think he’s definitely got a bit of the evil maknae side haha.

I LOVE the mini episodes that they film for each album release. I’ve jumped here and there and I’m currently watching Real GOT7 season 2 but I’ve watched all the GOT7ing episodes. I tried to pace myself – 1 video on day 1, the rest of the videos on day 2. Pretty good, right?

Observations: these guys can eat A LOT. And they need to stop showing us all the delicious food they eat in all these episodes.

I love ‘A’ and the fact that this is the first GOT7 song my sister listened to.

You’ve probably seen enough ‘If You Do’ in the last post but I haven’t seen this one so here it is. This is eyeliner version.

Love the song and the video. Dorks.

So fun to see them relaxed/horsing around in their dorm (I think). I feel like the saying ‘boys will be boys’ fits this video.

The dance at the chorus and the baseball concept got me hooked.

Bonus:

GOT7 at a Korean BBQ where you can see firsthand the boys eating a lot! The first 1/3 of the video is Jinson (Jackson + Jinyoung) arguing over Jinyoung’s never-ending complaints about Jackson only taking BamBam out for meat lolol. But then they finally eat meat together here so hopefully all is well now.

And that is all. I’m craving Korean BBQ now.
