  • Song Review: ‘After Like’ by IVE

    Song Review: ‘After Like’ by IVE

    IVE is the rookie girl group to watch. Despite only possessing 6 songs under their discography, pretty much every song has been a hit. Eleven was an incredibly solid debut that still holds up over time, and Love Dive was a very strong follow up, even earning them their first PAK (perfect all kill) in […]

  • Song Review: PINK VENOM by BLACKPINK

    Song Review: PINK VENOM by BLACKPINK

    After, last month’s Ready For Love, BLACKPINK are back with another pre-release to build up hype for their upcoming album. Despite having several issues with Ready For Love’s song production, I was eventually won over by the surprising potency of its hooks and the great vocal and rap delivery by the girls. Thankfully, this time, […]

  • Song Review: Forever Only by Jaehyun (NCT)

    Song Review: Forever Only by Jaehyun (NCT)

    Jaehyun has one of my favorite voices in K-pop. Husky, thick, and warm, his voice stands out in the sea of K-pop Main Vocalists. (I’m surprised people often forget that Jaehyun is a Main Vocalist, possibly because he is overshadowed by Taeil and Doyoung who are more capable ‘belters’). Unfortunately, I feel that he is […]

  • Hidden Gem: Replay by Golden Child

    Hidden Gem: Replay by Golden Child

    Golden Child is one of those groups who are in a weird position, popularity-wise at least. They debuted in late 2017, during the transition phase between 3rd and 4th Gen. With the lack of ‘big famous’ groups that debuted in this period (for example, on the level of Seventeen, BTS, EXO, etc.) they somewhat faded […]

  • Song Review: FOREVER 1 by Girls’ Generation

    Song Review: FOREVER 1 by Girls’ Generation

    The OGs. The Nation’s Girl Group. The one and only Girls’ Generation has made a comeback, celebrating 15 years together! With K-pop’s limited attention span and ever-changing landscape, it is hard for artists to remain relevant. Being an idol is like a ticking time bomb. The harsh truth is that many idols don’t even get […]

  • Artist Spotlight: DRIPPIN

    Artist Spotlight: DRIPPIN

    In an artist spotlight, I attempt to promote artists who at least in my opinion, release music of incredible quality, but do not receive enough attention for it.

  • Song Review: Time Out by Stray Kids

    Song Review: Time Out by Stray Kids

    Stray Kids, music-wise, are among my favorite boy groups in the 4th generation of K-pop. I absolutely ADORE Side Effects and Miroh, which are both among my favorite K-pop songs of all time. Their last official comeback, Maniac, was something I quite enjoyed, but I haven’t come back to after a month or two, so […]

  • Song Review: Cookie by NewJeans

    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 […]
