The second full length Japanese album from one of my favorite girl groups CSJH the Grace a.k.a Tenjochiki showed a move evolved sound. The quartet consists of dancing machine and rapper Stephanie,Lina former member of ’90’s pop group IsakNJiyeon, Dana the musical actress and goofball Sunday.
‘Dear…‘ includese their sixth(Stand Up People) and seventh(Here) single as well as the theme song to Homeless Chugakuse and a song from the movie Subaru.

I think after Identity, a lot of BoA fans were skeptical to listen to this single; I know I was. I think this was a was for her to redeem herself and also help out with the Disney’s On Ice 25th year anniversary album. Continue reading BoA Woo Weekend
Hi readers! This is Arie J and I wanted to try something new: two people for an album review. We will make our reviews different colors so you won’t be confuse, Arie J will be pink and NyNy will be in black . So Taeyang’s anticipated full album SOLAR has been released and has been an enjoyment for some and disappointment for others. Continue reading SOLAR Taeyang NyNy and Arie J
BRIGHT have to be my favorite J-pop girl group besides Tenjochiki. They have amazing voices and I’ll compare them to Korean group Big Mama because they have these amazing voices and can dance really well, but get such crappy songs. Continue reading BRIGHT Real
After 2 years of releasing singles, JASMINE has finally released her debut album filled with hits like sad to say, L.I.P.S,Jealous,This is Not A Game,No More, and Dreamin’. What attracted me to her music was that it had a R&B feel with emotion; that and the fact that she always had on these colorful wigs and different concepts for every single. Continue reading JASMINE GOLD
Guess what skp readers? This is my first Japanese album review on the site! I really enjoyed listening to ICONIQ’s debut album; it was better than what I expected. What I like about this album is that they experimented with a lot of different sounds. Continue reading ICONIQ Change Myself
This entire album is a breath of fresh air. It’s an album that I can relax after a stressful day; it’s a nice break from constant dance tracks and auto-tune every song I hear. J.ae is in a genre all her own; not K-pop or R&B; it’s from the heart and that’s what I admire about her. Continue reading J.ae Sentimental
Hi all! This is my very first post here, and I’d like to thank Arie for inviting me to contribute!
I’ll tell you a little about myself. The name’s Alisa. I’m a 19-year-old college student (I’m sure you all care *so* much about this) and a huge fan of Japanese music. My main blog can be found here. I figured some shameless plugging wouldn’t be TOO harmful! Ehehe. (hides from angry mob)
On my blog, I mainly review music. I try to talk a lot about artists that not many people know about, because I think all artists deserve a fair chance to be noticed. The genre I talk about with the most frequency is Visual Kei. Yeah, you read that right. Now I’m sure you’re baffled as to why a Visual Kei fanatic is writing on a k-pop blog. I wanted a challenge, so there you go. 🙂 Continue reading K-Rock Exists, Trust Me
Arie J: Thanks to my friend Nyny for writing this SHINee review, tell me if you like it!
First time doing reviews on saranghaekpop! ^_^ Hope you all enjoy!
The end of 2009 saw SHINee releasing yet another third mini album, Year of Us which I find to be considerably better than their previous second mini album, ROMEO. I feel like SHINee’s stepped up their game with this album indeed and title track song, Ring Ding Dong. Continue reading SHINee – 2009, Year Of Us
f(x) didn’t really wow me with their debut single, but it was so catchy that I found myself singing it /dancing to it. Then they released Chu~ which made me want to go slap whoever wrote it, but once again it was catchy so I was singing it/dancing to it. After I heard, You’re My Destiny, I fell in love and decided to review this album. Continue reading f(x) NU ABO
These girls are definitely in the same league as Brand New Day,Seeya and Davichi. L.C. have strong vocals that are shocking for a group that’s debuting. Ji Eun and Sei were previously solo singers having their debuts in 2007 under a separate company. Continue reading Lady Collection Lady Collection
When I first saw Gilme’s MV for Love Cuts, I fell in love. Her voice is very unique. She has a skill that few idols have; she can rap and sing. Many compare her to Tasha/Yoon Mirae. Continue reading 길미(Gilme)- The 1st Purple Dream Sound
