Happy Holidays from KPOPPY!

It's the annual holiday slow-down for Kpop releases, so I'll take the opportunity to wish the regulars a very happy holiday season. I hope you all get to enjoy time with friends and family. And if you can't do that, take some time for self-care. Eat delicious things, watch fun movies, marathon TV shows, catch up on sleep, and be kind to yourself... especially with all the unsettling things happening around the world.


SEVENTEEN and Gugudan put some adorable Christmas versions of recent tracks up today. Super cute.
Enjoy!


SEVENTEEN - BOOMBOOM (Santa version):



Gugudan - Wonderland (Santa Girl version):

[MV] EVE (feat. Heechul) - Melody



I had no idea EVE was still a thing. Been a while.

For the musical 'Death Note' running in January.

Junsu also just did a collaboration with The Black Skirts. Only a lyric video, but I'll put it in the full post because it's pretty cool, so I'm having a fangirl moment.

[MV] Apink - 'Cause You're My Star



Official channel link

[MV] LOOΠΔ / HeeJin, HyunJin, HaSeul – The Carol



3/12
Made of money, I tell ya!

[MV] LOOΠΔ / HaSeul - Let Me In



HaSeul is the 3rd member introduced for Loona. 9 to go!

I've also come to the conclusion that this company is made of money.

[MV] TheEastLight - I am what I am

[MV] VAV - Here I am



Still trying to understand why the mix on this group never sounds right.
There's always this disconnect between the vocals and track. They fight each other.

[MV] Junoflo - Deja Vu

[MV] sAewoo & YUNHWAY - $.E.D

[MV] C.O.G - Who

[MV] glowingdog - The Hermit

[MV] BIG BANG - Last Dance



Huge long-awaited comeback to finalize the MADE album. And it will be the last comeback as a group until all the members complete their military service.  I believe TOP will be enlisting first... February-ish? Enjoyed hearing him sing for this track.

[MV] BIG BANG - FXXK IT

[DEBUT] K.A.R.D - Oh NaNa



Official channel link
KARD is DSP's new co-ed group. The final roster is being kept secret by DSP. Apparently there might be 7 total members eventually.

[MV] SKA WAKERS - Peacetime



Really wanted to post this one considering there likely won't be much material related to the peaceful protests and impeachment of President Park Geun-hye from mainstream artists.
It has been a huge deal in South Korea, so I'll take this opportunity to mention it.
The Ask a Korean! blog has a series of great articles following the debacle. Here are two:
The Irrational Downfall of Park Geun-hye
Impeachment: Where does Korea Go from Here?

[MV] SLEEPY - Oh Yeah



Official channel link

[MV] Danpyunsun and the Sailors - National Anthem

[MV] Brand New Music - Already Christmas



Official channel link

Yang Da Il, Chancellor, MC GREE, As One, and Kang Min Hee.

[MV] LYn - 20th Century Carol

[MV] JESSICA - WONDERLAND



Pretty!

[MV] SS301 - REMOVE

[MV] BEAT WIN - Rising Sun



Strong contender for most unintentionally cringe-y video of the year.

Edit: Little kid version... ?

[MV] eSNa - Playboy

[DEBUT] GLABINGO - 'AS FEEL' and 'Memories Latte'

AS FEEL:


Memories Latte:



Official channel link

Pretty strong debut for a solo R&B dude.

[DEBUT] Villain - Rainy Night

[MV] DARI (feat. XOi) - Time Line



Dari is a member of DMTN.
Solo activities while the group is on indefinite hiatus.

[MV] DTSQ - MIND GAME

Far East Movement - IDENTITY ( Kpop collaborations)

Last month, Far East Movement released their IDENTITY album. It features a handful of Kpop artists on some pretty great tracks, so I wanted to feature them all in one post!
There are currently two three full relevant MVs. I'll put all of the audio tracks and other teasers in the full post.

Don't Speak
  • Featuring SNSD's Tiffany
  • Far East Movement and King Chain


Freal Luv

  • Featuring EXO's Chanyeol
  • Far East Movement, Marshmello, and Tinashe

[MV] National Pigeon Unity - Supertask

[MV] Hyoyeon - Mystery



Station #43
I really like Hyoyeon as a performer. Nice to have something solo for her. The chorus seems really flat to me unfortunately. Love the feel of the rest of it.

[ADMIN] Yep, KPOPPY is down...

Sorry about that. I get a very slow and steady amount of traffic to the KPOPPY site and blog with very limited bandwidth needs. But there was a sudden and unexplained spike just over the last couple days.

Edit: It's back up now! Yay! I'll leave the graphs in the full post for the lulz.
