[MV] LOOΠΔ / Chuu - Heart Attack

Give me those Magritte apples all day every day!!!
Different feel from the recent ones. Very theatrical. The b-side is still in that R&B range though. More towards house.
Chuu is the 10th LOONA girl to be introduced. Getting very close to 12 now!

I'm going to quote this from the description, because I'm living for this narrative they're crafting:
The new single lets the fans take a peek into what JiWoo, who has already been a popular trainee among fans, had to go through to become ‘Chuu’, and her desire to be loved by Yves, who also has said in her lyrics, “my heart that wants to be like you gets colored, filled with you.” 
The titled track “Heart Attack” does not interpret the feelings of being in love in a serious way, but with Chuu’s own adorable emoticon-like ways. The music video has references to historical and fictional figures such as the artist Rene Magritte, Hans Christian Andersen’s short story “The Little Match Girl”, and John Appleby’s novel “Aphrodite Means Death”... 
... When four girls who denied the garden of Eden gathers, the party begins.
My kind of party.

[MV] Younha - Parade

AAAHHHH. Might have one of those last minute additions to my top 30 list for the year. I love this! It's so happy! Groovyroom has produced so many tracks I've adored this year.

Have to post this. So cool.
NU'EST W and Seventeen did a collaboration stage at the MAMAs this year, but as is typical of such award shows, the camerawork was less than optimal for seeing the actual performance. Here we get to see the full choreography in all its glory. Live sound complete with foot stomps. I love me some foot stomps. The song was made specifically for the collab. Fun having a total of seventeen guys for it.

Missed this guy. I like his voice. Still not sure why he is called 'Roh' and 'Noh'. The Hangul is Noh, but when he was with Cube, they always called him Roh. Anyway, the full song can be heard here:

NSFW kinda...

Laysha is one of those erotic performance groups.
They have relatively decent production quality compared to other groups like them.

[ADMIN] SHINee's Jonghyun, our Jjong...

Couldn't bear thinking about this post, but I think I'll do it now while it's still raw... for my own process. I will not be posting music videos for a few days. I'll try to catch up at the end of the week and weekend. Thank you for your patience.

Kim Jonghyun of SHINee has passed away.

In the full post there is SM's official statement, some links, and my personal response to what has happened. Everything is after the jump-cut so it can easily be skipped for anyone having too difficult a time with all this. Please do not read further if frank discussion of this event would overwhelm you.

To Shawols, I love you.
To the greater Kpop community, hold each other tight.
Provide all the support you can and embrace support yourself if you need it.
To Jonghyun, thank you for sharing your voice and your music.
You've worked so hard.

[MV] SAAY (feat. Crush) - SWEATY

Ooo! Sexy song.
Missed her official debut a few months ago, but it's in English. Apparently super-sexy sounding songs are her thing. I love her voice. I'll put her debut, 'Circle' in the full post.

[MV] LOOΠΔ / ViVi, Choerry, Yves - The Carol 2.0

[MV] GOT7 - Teenager


New Cre.ker Ent. group. 12 members. A bunch of them have appeared in other MVs or on TV shows like Produce101 and Kpop Star 6. They also had a reality show leading up to debut called 'Flower Snack'.
Nice MV. The choreo performance shots are cool, albeit slightly disorienting.

Performance version:

[MV] Cardean - Insomnia

Funky. I think this is a new band?

[MV] Mighty Mouth - Instagram

NSFW: Instagram models, pole-dancing, bikini babes, etc...

Not unusual for Mighty Mouth to do something goofy, but their leads are usually so catchy you can't get them out of your head. This is not one of those catchy leads.
