I’ve been out of the mainstream Kpop loop for a little while now, but news of the return of CL had me excited to get back into the swing of things. Plus, after the let down of her last single “The Baddest Female,” I was hoping for some slick rhymes, good word play and a dope beat. I was pumped.
JQ’s ending the summer on a lighter note as he releases a lovey-dovey song that has his fans swooning. His ability to spit great flow on bump worthy melodies is what he’s known for and he remixes it up a bit as he adds a bit his own vocals as well.
The songs are usually more intense, more dramatic with melodic flair so it’s fair to say that the song lacks some oomph to make it great. The first verse gets you interested to her more but the ending gets a repeat of the chorus that just seems to lag a bit too much. One of the few summer songs that won’t make it to the repeat pile however check it out below.

When I heard that Secret’s Ji Eun was doing a solo I was estatic because she has the prettiest voice I’ve heard in a long time and I really enjoyed hearing her do a cover of Hwayobi’s song. Then the actual song came out and I wasn’t feeling it at all; in fact I was kind of disappointed that it didn’t have that umph I was wanting from her. Continue reading Song Ji Eun Going Crazy→
I admit that I wasn’t a huge listener of MBLAQ when they first debuted with ‘Oh Yeah’. I started listening to them when they released ‘G.O.O.D Luv’ which was such a nice mid tempo pop song. Continue reading MBLAQ Cry→

Perfume has been pretty busy this year and they continue onto their 10th anniversary year with the release of theri 16th single, VOICE released on August 11, 2010. After their previous single in April, they continue to release another techo-pop song which they do best as always.
Here’s another collaboration! This time with Arie J and NyNy. I’m in the regular type and NyNy is italicized.
2PM released this mini album after the whole ordeal with Jay leaving the group. I honestly don’t remember this because I wasn’t really paying attention to K-pop at the time , I was more preoccupied with J-pop.
Despite what happened in February, 2PM still made a comeback against all odds. What can I say? They are brave. I come back from holiday and didn’t know what to say really. I guess they were going to make a comeback sooner but I would have expected it to be later this year.
