    Song Review: Test Me by Xdinary Heroes

    Today was packed with K-pop releases. HyunA, one of K-pop’s most charismatic soloists, made her comeback with Nabillera, but I wasn’t sold on the song’s weak hooks that seemed to ride on Hyuna’s presence to elevate it. There were 2 options left for me to review: Xdinary Heroes’ Test Me, or P1Harmony’s Doom Du Doom. […]

    Song Review: Beautiful Monster by STAYC

    Wow. Where do I begin with this one? STAYC has consistently released strong title tracks since their debut. I was, and still am, an avid fan of So Bad. ASAP won me over with its damn catchy chorus. Stereotype was an incredible follow-up, and RUN2U is no slouch either. Amidst such a strong run of […]

    Song Review: Sneakers by Itzy

    Itzy is among K-pop’s most charismatic groups, specializing in performance to make the songs they release come alive. Previous title tracks such as Loco and Mafia In the Morning weren’t my favorite, but they have grown on me quite a bit, while I immensely enjoyed Not Shy, Wannabe, Icy, and Dalla Dalla. I’ve been waiting […]

In particular, I am particularly drawn to the music in K-pop, which I think is extremely diverse, intriguing, and enjoyable. Generally speaking, K-pop is unafraid […]
