[MV] LOOΠΔ / Yves - new

New LOONA lady!
From the Hangul, Yves basically sounds like Eve and if you read into the description you can see the Eve/Eden/apples theme is intentional. I didn't know what the heck to think of this project when it got started, but they're doing a pretty great job so far keeping the hype up.
Yves is the 9th of 12!

Choreography version:

[MV] JUN.K - A Moving Day

[MV] MAP6 - Love is Gone

Official channel link

This song sounds like AOA's Mini-skirt and Infinite's discography had a baby.


[DEBUT] Busters - Dream On & Lalala

Dream On:


These actually have some decent production for nugus. Lalala has like... marimba or synth marimba, which is interesting?!
Their name is the exact same Hangul as the rock group BURSTERS, which is unhelpful. Lol.


This is the 'Black' version. There's a 'White' version as well. I'll embed it in the full post.

[REMIX] BTS & Steve Aoki - MIC Drop

Photosensitivity warning for flashy light from 1:43 to 2:15.

#1 trending on Youtube as I post this. #1 on iTunes in the US and 50+ countries...
There are four versions of this song:

  • The original on their album. (live performance)
  • This version, remixed by Steve Aoki, with more English lyrics.
  • This same track plus a feature with Desiigner is playing on US radio. (link)
  • And finally a Japanese version. (short PV)
The timing of this post-AMAs debut, on Black Friday, is pretty ideal. More records are being broken already. BTS is absolutely killing it right now. KILLING. IT. Glad to have the energy of this choreography immortalized in official MV form. Jimin and J-Hope are  insane... jfc.

Gotta get some better artist names up in here.
Nice atmospheric sound.

[DEBUT] JUNKY GREY - Grey Desert

I think these guys are new. Just the duo. A K-rock group styled after visual-kei J-rock.
Very reminiscent of HYDE or L'arc-en-ciel.


[MV] Yoo Seung Woo - Anymore

[MV] KARD - You In Me

Official channel link

I was fascinated seeing romantic relationships played up in a co-ed group, because that seems like a risk... AND THEN IT TOOK A TURN. WTF. I don't even know how to feel about this! Lmao.

[MV] Wanna One - Beautiful

Edit: Bumping this again because the performance version was just released and it's so pretty it's worthy of a boost.

This crazy convoluted Kdrama plot... lmao. Use that Produce 101 budget!
The song is nice. Korea will love it. Well-timed feeling for the season.

[MV] Epik High (feat. Jongwan of NELL) - LOST ONE

Tablo said he subtitled this himself.
The video is tied in to a movie called 'Forgotten', due out soon.

[PROMO/CF] Zion.T - Nu Day

Quite a few nice CF songs this year. This one is for Volkswagen (obviously!).

This guy is/was a part of BgA (as Jeungri) with NigaHiga/Wong Fu Productions. But he does lots of Kpop covers in violin as a youtuber and has his own music.

[MEDIA] BTS at the American Music Awards

BTS will be performing on the American Music Awards tonight. I'll probably be compelled to make a long post about it after everything is over and I've had time to process it. You can find resources and streaming links over on reddit if you'd like to watch live. I'M NOT COMPLETELY FREAKING OUT--YOU ARE!!!


Edit: The lighting was dark, the camerawork was bad, half the performance was shots of the audience losing their minds (which was kinda fun), the fanchants were muted, and the mics sounded weak on the broadcast.

But then ARMYs come through with a bunch of fancams where you can actually see them, watch the full choreography, hear the EXTREMELY LOUD fanchants, and can really tell they had live mics (Jungkook's "Let's go! Let's go!" at the end). Not sure if this particular cam will stay up, but here's one:

I, for one, am completely thrilled.
Their [VLIVE] after the show is also all kinds of delightful.

[MV] Red Velvet - Peek-A-Boo

Never mind the kids and the wife... hide yo pizza delivery boy!

The mix sounds really flat/quiet on this MV to me, but I'm not finding a better alternative. MelOn might be the best.
Anyway, I really like this! Just finished listening to the full album It's what I was hoping to hear for their first 'Velvet' album, but it ended up being too ballad-heavy. This album is more in the vein of quirky R&B I wanted. The 2nd track 'Look' is my favorite, which is very funky 80s R&B.
My jam.

[MV] Samuel - Candy

[MV] SNUPER - Dear

[DEBUT] YUSEOL - Ocean View

Nice debut.

[MV] ALi - No Way

[MV] Soyou, Sung Si Kyung - Still

[MV] George - Boat

Still funny though.

So, fair warning.

Slightly disturbing imagery and a little blood. Nothing very graphic.
