[MONTHLY] Favorites for APRIL 2019

We had big releases last month with BTS and TWICE. 'Boy With Luv' and 'FANCY' have been stuck in my head since they were released. Even though I prefer BTS's darker sounding tracks, BWL was a ton of fun and FANCY is just straight-up an earworm.

But! For April, I went with IZ*ONE and So!YoON! for my top picks. 'Violeta' feels gorgeous, lush, and full of energy every time I listen, and HOLIDAY is just the kind of groove I'm always in the mood for.

A bunch of indie choices in here for April, like YUNGDAN's 'Keep Going', which has an awful video there is no point in watching, but the song is chill.





In the full post: BOL4, MINHYUN, FLAG, Woogotsa, BTS, Eian, YUNGDAN, Kisum, TWICE, Joy o'clock, Newkidd, BOYCOLD, and PERC%NT,

Auto-tuning Beenzino's pretty vocal tone is killing me. :(

Bumping this up again to add the new version with Ty Dolla $ign.



Basically the same song (which is so good!) with a singing interlude from Ty.
Video still gorgeous with some new imagery in there.

Original post (180608):



This is all English, but the video is too spectacular to pass over. She has a cool voice as well.
Katie Kim won K-Pop Star 4. She was with YG, but she moved to AXIS in the midst of preparing her debut. YG is still her distributor for now.

[MV] GIRL CRUSH - Memories

NSFW (19+ warning)

GIRL CRUSH is one of those 'erotic performance' groups that tour the festival circuit, like Bambino or Laysha. Lots of gratuitous boob, crotch, and butt shots in the MV. Song is fairly decent though. One of the better productions I've heard from this type of group.

[ADMIN] Regarding the Burning Sun / hidden camera scandals...

Seems like a necessary post to make at some point. How about now? Lol.

So, I mostly keep these things separate, but if you also use reddit's /r/kpop it's probably not a secret that I'm a moderator there. I use the same username everywhere. Since the end of January, we've been covering this massive Seungri, Jung Joon Young, Burning Sun, molka, corruption, etc, scandal. It has taken a huge amount of work from our mod team to stay on top of it. It's the primary reason I've been a little slower with updating KPOPPY recently.

As of the time posting this, we're up to our sixteenth megathread and this thing looks like it's just going to keep going and going and going.

Trigger warning if you don't know about this stuff and start clicking through. Be careful. Sexual assault is a significant facet of these stories.

Our timeline / catch-all for news
Our Who's Who compiled list of who is involved
Megathread 16

In the full post, I'll detail how all of this stuff is going to impact what I do here.

[MONTHLY] Favorites for MARCH 2019

March was packed! I had like five tracks that could have been my top choices. Tried to pare it down, but I still ended up with 18 MVs in the full post. They might all struggle to load in. Beware! Lol.

Going with these two for the top. SUNMI's 'Noir' and RM's intro for BTS's new era 'Persona'. But Subin's 'Katch Up' and TXT's 'Crown' debut were also super strong contenders and they easily could have fit in here too.





In the full post: Jus2, KEY/Soyeon, Jang Dong Woo, TXT, Subin (DALsooobin), Hong Jinyoung, EPIK HIGH, GWSN, Park Bom, The T-Bird, Adios Audio, MAMAMOO, VSiiGN/JK Kim Dong Uk, EDEN, Jeong Sewoon/PENOMECO, Vincent Blue, JBJ95, and CIFIKA/Crush/Woo.

[MV] BLACKPINK - Kill This Love



Absolutely stunning production in the video.
Unfortunately, not into the song at all. I'm craving a core melody and there just isn't one. It's all bombastic beat. I'm sure it'll be huge for worldwide fans.

BTS (RM) - Persona (MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA)



Been listening to this all day. Very freakin' excited about this comeback. There have been hints of them throwing back to their older stuff for a while, which is what I've been hoping for. 'Persona' pretty literally references and samples RM's Skool Luv Affair intro from way back in 2014, animation included.

'Map of the Soul' is the name of the whole era/concept. 'Persona' is the first part (album will release on April 12th). Seems likely that 'Shadow' and 'Ego' will be the next parts. BigHit always gets elaborate with their marketing though, so who knows?!
