[MV/MEDIA] THE UNI+ (music videos)

My Turn (all participants):

KBS's The UNIT is one of the newest idol survival shows. This one is dedicated to giving 'failed' idols another chance or giving newly debuted groups an opportunity to get some media attention. Three introductory MVs are out now, which I believe are from challenges in the early episodes, but I've barely started watching!

I'll put the other two in the full post. There's one for all the gentlemen competing and one for all the ladies competing.

[MV] LOOΠΔ ODD EYE CIRCLE - Sweet Crazy Love

Nice groove.

[MV] Super Junior - One More Chance

Only Leeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, Shindong, Eunhyuk, Donghae, and Siwon.

[MV] BeatBurger - MONSTER

BeatBurger's MVs are always nuts.
That was a creepy adventure.

[MV] VOISPER - Save As

[MV] JUNIEL - I Drink Alone

[DEBUT] WH3N - Something that You Left

[MV] JIMIN (AOA) - Hallelujah

I think we'll be hearing a lot of Despacito-esque guitar for the rest of the year.
This MV is also uploaded to 1theK and FNC's official channel, but the audio quality is bad on both of them. WKorea appears to be the proper source. Much better sound.

[DEBUT] IN2IT - Amazing

The final 8-member team from BOYS24.

[MV] Lalasweet - A Night in Seoul

[OST] NiiHwa - What I Want

I don't always post OSTs, but when I do it's a chill percussive track from NiiHwa.
From the Mad Dog soundtrack.


[MV] Louie, Soyou - Monitor Girl

Warning: Gunshot to the head right at the start.

Never fails to baffle me that knives are blurred out, but straight headshots are fine.
Anyway, dunno what kind of Looper madness is going on here... or why it's only half a song.
If you want to hear the whole thing: [unofficial audio link]

[MV] Young Cream (feat. Blino) - BANANA

Tuesday, October 24, 2017


A little snippet of LOVE STORY at the end, which features IU.
Going to listen through this album as soon as I'm done posting.
New Epik High is always a joy!


Interesting track for Loona.
Kind of a streaming consciousness English thing going on there.

[MV] KillaGramz (feat. Hash Swan) - Coloring

[MV] Lim Chang Jung - Do You Know That Person

[MV] Wheesung/Realslow (feat. Hash Swan) - Aroma

Wheesung started his own label. His new stage name and label name are both Realslow.
Bit of an odd choice so far into his career.

[MV] DMEANOR - Do Nothing

[MV] HEYNE, Minsoo - LOVE is Blind

[MV] Danny Gold & FNRL - Hand In Hand

[MV] 4MEN - Break Up In The Morning

Official channel link

Some MVs are so packed with every Kdrama cliche that I can't take them seriously.

[DEBUT] JBJ - Fantasy

These guys participated in Produce 101. All from different agencies. They're like a second Wanna One in that way. They were very popular on the show, but just missed out on the top 11, so there was a big/positive public response to the idea of putting them together in their own group. The contract for JBJ is set for 7 months, but extension is possible if they do well.

[MV] A.C.E - Callin

Photo-sensitivity warning for lots of flashing/strobing light.

[MV] The Barberettes - Fall Is Coming

[COVER] SOLAR - Alone People & Autumn Letter

Alone People (orig. Lee Jeong Seon):

Autumn Letter (orig. Kim Min Ki):

[MV] pH-1 (feat. Jay Park) - Donut

[MV] Jubi (Sunny Hill) - Autumn Rain

[MV] ALEPH - No One Told Me Why

[MV] MOONSHINE X Dash - Feel Feel

Taemin will always be the spritely 14 year old kid he was at debut to me. Been quite the privilege to see that kid develop into the performer he is now. Extraordinary. Especially cool to see him push some concepts that I wouldn't typically see SM being comfortable with. Good for him.

There's also performance versions. One is focused on Taemin and includes the backup dancers. I'll put it in the full post. The other has just Taemin and Koharu performing. It's on [VLIVE].

These kids are going to be JYP's new boy group. This isn't technically their debut. There will be some kind of survival audition show starting on the 17th, but I don't know if that means some will be cut before the end, or if it's just a getting-to-know-them through challenges. kind of thing.

[ADMIN] A smoke-laden update

FYI, I'm in Northern California. KPOPPY is named thusly for our lovely California poppies around here. Since the middle of the night on Sunday, I have been in the eye of a firestorm that has massively destroyed significant areas of the place I've called home for 31 years. I am insanely lucky to still have my house. Many of my friends had only minutes warning to flee their homes before they burned down behind them. I was without power/internet for a while and shifting around to safe areas.

I'm one of the fortunate few to be safely in my home again, but the region is still burning and things could change at a moment's notice. Doing a big update while I can right now (grateful for something 'normal' to do), but I can't guarantee I'll be as on top of things for another week or two. Glad to still be with you.

[ADMIN] Happy Chuseok!

This will be a slow release week due to the Chuseok holiday. The Kpop subreddit has a nice post compiling lots of Chuseok greetings from many groups/artists. Whether you celebrate or not, let your family or chosen family know you love them. Eat some good food if it's available to you. Put some good into the world to counteract the bad. Much love to you.
