  • Song Spotlight: Answer by ATEEZ

    Song Spotlight: Answer by ATEEZ

    Due to the lack of new K-pop releases from my favorite groups, I instead decided to highlight one of my favorite K-pop songs of all time, Answer by ATEEZ. The decision to talk about Answer as a song in particular came purely by coincidence. I decided to go an ATEEZ binge yesterday, and when Answer…

  • 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: 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…

    Hidden Gem: be free by KB (OnlyOneOf)

    OnlyOneOf has been one of those groups who have delivered great title tracks as a group quite consistently and reached their Magnus opus in their latest releases. The year’s Skinz and last year’s libidO have already cemented their place on my list of the best K-pop songs I’ve ever heard. I would highly recommend you…

  • Song Review: Hurt by NewJeans

    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: Test Me by Xdinary Heroes

    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

    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: _WORLD by Seventeen

    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…

  • Song Review: Beatbox by NCT Dream

    Song Review: Beatbox by NCT Dream

    NCT Dream’s music has always clicked with me. Even as their musical direction evolved when the members themselves grew older, I have been able to appreciate their title tracks. Even Glitch Mode, which is probably their most polarizing release, is a song I can get behind. Beatbox returns to Dream’s roots as a playful and…
