    Song Review: Eve, Psyche & The Bluebeard’s wife by Le Sserafim

    At first listen, I knew that this song was going straight up to one of my favorites of the year. I’ve seen other people mention that this kind of music has been done in the past and better, but this is the first time I’ve heard of anything that sounds like ‘Eve’. Perhaps it can…

    Song Review: UNFORGIVEN (ft. Nile Rogers) by Le Sserafim

    I’ll admit, I had high hopes for this comeback. I am a massive fan of their last title-track, ‘Antifragile’, and even though ‘UNFORGIVEN’ indeed took notes in the creation of the latter, the product becomes much weaker than expected, leaving feeling me painfully hollow. The main problem with UNFORGIVEN is the fact that it fails…

    Song Review: Cookie by NewJeans

    After successfully building hype from their 3 pre-releases, NewJeans officially debuted after releasing the MV for their 4th and final song in their debut mini-album, Cookie. Before I begin the review, I will acknowledge the ongoing controversy regarding the song’s lyrics. I wish that the company did not let the song’s lyricists write it in…

    Song Review: Hurt by NewJeans

    NewJeans is on a roll. Just today, it has been reported that their debut album has already amassed a record-breaking 440,000 preorders! Considering the ingenious marketing strategy that ADOR has used to promote them, not to mention their excellent music so far, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, but even then, these…

    Song Review: Hypeboy by NewJeans

    I was extremely impressed by Attention yesterday, so I very much looked forward to listening to Hypeboy. Thankfully, while I wasn’t as blown away as I was with Attention, Hypeboy doesn’t disappoint as a follow-up. I would not usually mention the song’s MV in my review, but the concept of NewJeans is too unique to…

    Song Review: Attention by NewJeans

    NewJeans is a 5 member girl group under the newly established ADOR label, a subsidiary under HYBE. While they haven’t made their official debut yet (which is scheduled to be on the 8th of August), the surprise release of ‘Attention’, for the lack of a better word, certainly caught my attention. Having Min Heejin, SM…

    Song Review: _WORLD by Seventeen

    In my opinion, Seventeen have one of the strongest discographies in K-pop. Even though their latest works have remained solid, I still yearn for their music in their earliest years. I genuinely think they never missed, at least title track-wise, during their 2015-2017 era. While ‘_WORLD’ isn’t peak Seventeen, it finds itself in this realm…
