There were a lot of music video releases today, and out of those, I decided to talk about Mr. Chu by Apink! Click here to check it out! I really hope you guys are liking the posts, and feel free to leave any comments! I really love talking to you guys hehe 🙂 but anyways, happy Monday! Don’t let school, work, etc. ruin your day! 😀 I hope this video and post will help make your day a little bit better. Let’s go ahead and get started!
Apink is a group under A Cube Entertainment formed in 2011. The members consist of Chorong, Bomi, Eunji, Naeun, Namjoo, and Hayoung.
Song: Very cute song! :3 It’s very light, fun, sweet, not to mention, so adorable! Haha it’s a really catchy song and definitely something that will put you in a better mood, with its positive vibe and upbeat style. Their voices are really nice in the song and I like the chorus part, really fun. I like it! 🙂
Music Video: Just like the song, it’s very fun, sweet, colorful, not to mention very cute! 😀 The song and music video are an adorable match! I really liked the color scheme of the video (is that weird? :P) and their outfits were so pretty, especially that hot pink dress type thing with flowers! Haha, but outfits aside, I thought it was sweet and although I don’t really understand why there were scenes of tennis balls and stuff, it was still pretty overall, not to mention that they looked gorgeous! 🙂
Overall, I liked the cute song and the video! 🙂 Would I download the song? Yeah! What did you think about the song and video? Were you excited for the release? Let me know in the comments!
One thing I DEFINITELY am excited for is Akdong Musician (aka Akmu it seems like as it says in the title of the video), because of the teaser they released today for their debut album! I didn’t really watch the season of K-pop Star that they were in, but my oh my, that was an AMAZING teaser video! I’m excited for their songs, not to mention the music video! What do you guys think? Hope you all have a spectacular day!
It’s finally the end of March and I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like it passed by so fast! How was March for you? Personally, it was a special month for me because I started my Time to K-pop blog and I’m really happy I did! What are some memorable things in March for you guys – K-pop related or non-related? Let me know in the comments!
Songs of the Month is an idea I had for a category when I started the blog. I decided to do it as a monthly thing, because doing it weekly would be too often. Since it’s finally the end of March, I thought I’d start posting it now, before it’s too late :3! Songs of the Month will basically be, as the title says, songs that I’ve discovered in the month that I really liked, and want to share with you guys. The songs won’t necessarily be released in that month, although many of them might be, but will be chosen by when I encountered them. Feel free to leave any song recommendations of your favorites from the month! Let’s go and get started!
By the way, this month might have a few songs from February too, since I obviously didn’t have a Songs of the Month then, so keep that in mind! Make sure to click the links if you haven’t listened to the songs already!
– 1004 – B.A.P.: Absolutely love this song! It’s obviously different from their Warrior style, but I really enjoyed both the song and their performance either! Their album, First Sensibility, is awesome too! P.S. Happy birthday to Bang Yong Guk (the leader of B.A.P)! :3
– You Deserve Better – Verbal Jint: There are a few things I have to say about this song. First off, I didn’t really find it this month, but I rediscovered it, and I realized how much I love it. It’s seriously one of my favorite K-pop songs. I don’t know why, I just find it so nice. Also, I don’t really know if the translation of the title is right so don’t blame me. :S Anyways, definitely give it a listen if you haven’t already!
– Mr. Mr. – SNSD: I won’t talk about this song too much, since many of you probably know it already, but I really thought it was a cool, catchy song!
– Some – JungGiGo & SoYou: A lot of you probably know this song too, since it’s been #1 in many music programs, but it’s still one of my favorites anyway! I love their voices and the song is so sweet. I never really talked about the video, but it’s so so so cute!
– Four Times Around the Sun – Nell: I’m a fan of Nell (I should probably do a K-pop Findings about them soon) and this song was far from a disappointment. It’s a really nice song and definitely one of the highlights of this month.
– 해도 해도 너무했어 – Navi: I don’t think many people know about this song, and I apologize but I don’t really know how to translate the title, but I really liked it and I thought her voice was great. 🙂
– Video Games – Boys’ Republic: I haven’t really talked about this song much, but I find it to be really catchy, and the chorus is really cool. It’s an overall really awesome song and more people should give it a listen!
– I have a girlfriend – JYP: Such an old song! I know, I know, but I rediscovered it this month, and I decided I’d include it for all of you that haven’t heard of it already. I’m sure that there’s a better version of this song somewhere, and despite the fact that this video is cringeworthy, I decided to include it anyways because hey, awesome blast from the past. The song is great though, especially the guitar parts :3
– R.O.D – G.D.: I didn’t listen to this song when it was released (I really don’t know why) and when I found this song, I fell in love with it, and especially the chorus. It’s an awesome, and I really love this particular performance too.
– Secret Love – B.A.P: Another B.A.P song (hehe sorry about that) and I do know that it’s really old, but I rediscovered this song this month. It’s really nice!
– See Through – Kwon Jin Ah: I know lots of people were crazy about her cover of this song, and although it’s part of the audition program K-Pop Star, I had to include it here because her voice is so great and my oh my, what an amazing song and performance. I can not get over her voice. K-Pop Star fans unite! 😀 Oh, and check out the original here if you’d like!
– Wild Flower – Park Hyo Shin: This song is so relaxing, and beautiful at the same time. If you’re needing to wind down, calm down with a great song, this is for you!
Also, here are some of my favorites from Talking about’s in this month. To be honest, the songs this month were all pretty awesome, so these are just a few that I decided to include here too.
Without You – Lee Michelle, Come Back Home – 2NE1, Full Moon – Sunmi, Be a Man – MBLAQ, and many others (that I won’t include here but check them out in the actual Talking about’s) haha :3
I’m pretty sure I’m missing some songs (sorry, I’ll keep track of songs better next month hehe) and I’ll update this as I remember them, but this is it for now! I really hope you guys enjoyed this and don’t forget to include your suggestions too! I hope April is even better than March for all of you! 🙂 I’m looking forward to all the cool songs that will be released in April! Thanks for reading, and all the support! 🙂
Today’s post is about Ledapple’s (relatively) new digital single called Who Are You? Click here to watch it! I hope you all are having a great Saturday (hopefully better than mine at the least :3)! By the way, I have many ideas for new posts but I don’t know when it would be appropriate to post them. I’ll post those eventually (and by that, I mean a couple of days), so look forward to that! 😀 Well, without further ado, let’s get into talking about Ledapple!
Ledapple (following how it’s written in the video) is a rock band formed by Starkim Entertainment. The group, formed in 2010, consists of 5 members: Kyumin, Youngjun, Hanbyul, Hyoseok, and Kwangyeon. I’m not too familiar with Ledapple, so this single was pretty new for me. Keep reading to find out about my opinions!
Song: I really like this song! 😀 Like really! (in case you didn’t understand me before :p) The whole song is great. Every single part is really nice, and the chorus is really fun and catchy too. It’s super upbeat and fun :3 After a few listens, I was singing along on the “Who are you” part in the chorus hehe. I would say it’s a very approachable song and it took me very little time to start liking it. It’s a fun song that’s contagious.
Music Video: I actually liked the video too! Obviously, there wasn’t a lot of production value in this video, but that does not bother me at all. In fact, there were many parts in which the members were holding the cameras. What I really liked about this video was how cute it was :3 I loved how they included clips of people on the streets dancing with them and them walking around doing silly things. It was an adorable video, with them being playful in the beautiful places they toured. The video was appropriate to the fun, happy vibe of the song. All those people who were part of their tour and the video are probably so happy about this haha! I had fun watching them, and I thought their simplistic video was nice! Oh, and I really like the action with the “Who are you” part haha, definitely going to do that when listening to the song :3
Overall, I really liked the song and the video! :3 Sure they weren’t super extravagant or anything, but I liked how upbeat and lively it was. Would I download this song? Yes! 😀 Definitely! What are your opinions about this song? Do you like the silly video? Let me know in the comments! Thanks again for reading! Don’t hesitate about leaving me a comment (it can be about anything!) 🙂 Have a great rest of the weekend!
I hope you all are having a great Friday! Because I didn’t know what to talk about, I did some searching and I found the music video for Dancing Alone, by Billion!
Billion is a new rookie group, with 6 members, formed by Move Entertainment. Although I wish I could include more information about this group, I couldn’t find anything else about them, probably because they are so new. Their debut song was released on the 24th. If you do have any additional information, I’d love to read it in the comments! Let’s get into the song and music video now!
Song: As for the song, I think it’s cool! It kinda sounds like a song you’d hear at the club, doesn’t it? Or maybe that’s just me… The beat and the melody, with the synth sounds, had this effect on me and I could see myself dancing to it. Maybe I’ll be Dancing Alone whilst listening to this song… (Hehehe 😀 I apologize for my terrible pun). It has a pretty catchy chorus and it’s growing on me the more I listen to it! I’m pretty impressed by it, and I approve, hehe! If you’re looking for a upbeat song that makes you want to dance, check it out! (That’s at least what I think of it)
Music Video: It was cool too! 🙂 I thought the sets were cool, and they looked really pretty with this “badass” concept I noticed. I thought it looked nice overall, and it was a pretty nice video for a debut. The flipped cars, the buildings, the lights, the filters (it seems like) were interesting too! When I first saw that they were in the bus with the barred windows I thought maybe they were going to jail but then I realized that they were in all these really cool looking outfits….with one girl holding her huge instrument case… 😛 Stupid me, hahah. But anyways, I wasn’t disappointed with the video, and at the same time I wasn’t really in love with it either. I guess I’m more in the neutral zone, leaning towards the positive. It wasn’t super captivating, but it was visually interesting.
Overall, it was a cool debut and I liked it in general! 😀 Would I download the song? Hm, yeah if I wanted to add it to my “Dance Playlist” haha! I apologize for the short post! Although I did want to write a lot, I didn’t really have that much to say. What are your feelings about this video? Let me know in the comments below! Hope you all have a great weekend!
In order to compensate for my (relatively) short post, and in case you’re feeling bored and K-pop hungry, I’ll include Super Junior M’s performance of Swing! I absolutely love it; I think it’s so creative and awesome! 😀 Definitely check it out!
Hugs from your fellow K-Popper! ❤
P.S.: I just wanted to put a little additional note here, so I don’t get any hate :3 I personally like music videos with some type of plot – I think they’re certainly way more interesting than just videos of people posing and standing around. That isn’t to say, however, that I will dislike a video just because it doesn’t have a plot of course! 😛 So, please keep this in mind when I post Talking about’s, about (ha that’s awkward) music videos that don’t seem to have, or I wasn’t able to pick up on, a plot, since I won’t have as much to say, and I’m not trying to offend the artists or anything! I hope you guys understand :3 There isn’t really a particular reason why I chose this song to include this note but I figured since the post is short I might as well put it here anyways because I think you guys should know this about me. 😀
I’m back with another post! I was originally planning on writing a Talking about, but I didn’t know what music video to choose, so I’ve decided to post a K-Pop finding about K. Will! One thing I want to mention early on is that I haven’t recently stumbled across K. Will, as I usually do with my K-Pop Findings, but I I really wanted to talk about him! If you have any suggestions on Talking about’s I can do, please leave a comment! K. Will we talk about K. Will now? (Sorry, I really got to stop with this puns). :3
K. Will is a ballad singer currently part of Starship Entertainment. He debuted with Big Hit Entertainment in 2006. He has many collaborations and drama soundtracks, and rightly so because his singing is amazing! One of my favorite things about K. Will is not his great songs, but this one video (and song too) that I absolutely love. Maybe some of you guys who know K. Will better will know what I’m talking about, but it’s his music video for Please don’t. I won’t go in too much detail about it, simply because I don’t want to cause any disagreements on my interpretation, but I think it’s a very significant and special video. If you haven’t watched it yet, please go watch it (with an open mind) and leave me a comment about your impressions!
Today, there are many idol groups in the industry, and although I love them (and you guys should know by now that I do 😉 ), I do love me some K. Will too! I know ballads aren’t a lot of people’s favorite type of music but I personally really like it, and if you do too and don’t know K. Will yet, you have to check his music out! He really does have some great songs, so I’ll include a few of my favorites in this post!
– You don’t know love – Love this song, especially the chorus part! Click on this to listen to it! Or, to see Chanyeol from Exo. Whichever option seems more appealing.
– If you need a little Love Blossom (heh) in your life, go check it out! Or, you should see L from Infinite. Whichever you prefer. 😛
– This song is totally a blast from the past for me, and that is My Heart Beating! Additionally, the video is super cute. Check it out! Even if it’s just for Lee Joon from MBLAQ or IU. Do you get the pattern in his music videos? :3
– Last but certainly not least, do you like the drama My Love From The Star? Well I’ve got you covered! Check out the OST here! Or watch the video if you want to see clips from the drama. 😀
I hope you guys enjoyed this short post about K. Will! I truly think he’s very talented and he has so many amazing songs! If you’re needing a little bit of variety in your K-Pop playlist, I definitely recommend him.
What do you think? Is he not your style of music? Let me know in the comments! Hope you all are having a great day, and I’ll talk to you guys tomorrow! Thanks for reading!
I’m back, and today I have a K-Pop Group of the Day post about Girls’ Generation (aka SNSD)! In honor of them wrapping up their promotions for Mr. Mr. this weekend, I decided it would be fitting to talk about them now! Oh, by the way, I hope you guys are liking the posts recently! :3 I do want more diversity and variation in my posts so I’ll work on that, but as you guys might be able to tell, I’ve been trying to alternate between the different categories. So far, Talking about’s have been the most frequent, but please let me know if you think I should so more of another one! 🙂 Also, I would love any suggestions of posts you guys want me to do! Okay, now that I’ve talked about that, let’s go right ahead and talk about SNSD!
Although most of you probably know about this group, I’ll give a brief explanation for those who don’t! Girls’ Generation is a 9 member group formed in 2007 by SM Entertainment. The members consist of Taeyeon, Jessica, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona, and Seohyun. As I’ve mentioned briefly, their recent comeback Mr. Mr. was released on February 24th. I don’t know why but I felt like their promotions were so short 😦 maybe that’s just my impression!
Favorite member? My favorite member is Taeyeon, without a doubt. She’s beautiful, adorable, and an amazing singer. To be honest, that can be said about most of the members of this group, but something about her is just so cute. :3 I really love her laugh! Oh my, this is so old, but click here to listen to my favorite song of hers. The memories are coming back :’) Haha! Do you guys remember when she was with Jung Hyung Don on We Got Married? (What is all these references to years ago? 😮 Is this a Throwback Wednesday Post? 😛 Hahaha) I loved them so much; they were my favorite couple. Overall, I just really love her quirky, adorable personality and her pretty voice!
Favorite song? I’d say my favorite song of Girls’ Generation is probably Kissing You, which is relevant to the whole Throwback Wednesday theme I have going on right here. DO YOU GUYS SEE THE QUALITY OF THIS VIDEO :O So old! But anyways, it’s such a sweet, cute song :3 But really, I have a lot of favorites, like Genie, Gee, Hoot, etc. So many to choose from!
One thing that sets them apart from others? Definitely their super fun songs and catchy dances! That isn’t one thing, but you get what I’m trying to say. :p
Overall opinion? I really like them! They were probably, if my (terrible) memory is not failing me, one of the first girl groups I got into. I think their rise in fame coincided with when I started to get into K-pop! Since then and still true today, they’re an awesome group with super catchy songs! Although I’m not the type of fan that keeps up to date with all of their promotional activities, I do like their performances and them as a group in general.
What are your opinions on this group? Let me know in the comments! Also, I’d like to do K-Pop Group of the Day posts about more well known groups too, but I also think it would be fun if I included groups that are not as widely known, so please leave any suggestions in the comments! 🙂 Again, thank you so much for reading! I’ll be back with another post tomorrow!
It’s Time To K-pop (heh cheesy), and today’s Talking about is MBLAQ’s Be a man! Yes, they are finally back after Smoky Girl with a new release. Without further ado, let’s get started! 🙂
MBLAQ is looking good, with their classy outfits in the new music video for Be a man! The group has 5 members – G.O, Seungho, Lee Joon, Mir, and Thunder. They debuted in 2009, and are currently contracted under J. Tune Camp.
Song: After various listens, I’m going to have to say that I really enjoyed it! I thought it was different from your usual K-pop song, but by no means in a bad way. 😀 I liked the inclusion of the orchestra – it made the song much prettier. In my opinion, they included a lot of very cool things, such as the guitar, the piano, the creepy “oohs”, and other little background sounds that I thought were nifty :D. The details put into the song were evident to me, and it contributed to my overall opinion of it being a nice song! There were a lot of interesting things going on. I like 😀
Music Video: As for the music video, I thought it was decent. I mean, I did like it, but I didn’t really love it. Does that make sense? I didn’t find it to be an amazing video, but I’ll say this – they look really good in suits. Damn. 😛 Haha, moving on, I thought the shadows on their faces and the walls, by using the blinds was cool and I thought the change of sets through the movement of the camera was awesome. They did a good job of setting the mood of the video and the song as a result, which I did appreciate. Other than that, I’m digging Mir in glasses haha it looks good on him! Visually, there were some cool things, but it wasn’t super interesting, to be honest, but I think it conveys a suiting mood to complement the song.
Overall, I really liked the song, and the video, not so much. Would I download the song? Yes! 🙂 I’m looking forward to their live performances as well! What do you guys think? I know there are a lot of exciting comebacks happening soon, so I’ll try to write about those too! Sorry for the really short post today! Leave me a comment about your opinions! Thanks for checking out today’s post, and I’ll talk to you guys later!
Welcome back to It’s Time to K-pop! Today’s exciting Talking about is on Jackie Chan’s new K-pop group, JJCC, which (finally) came out today! Click here to watch it if you haven’t already! I personally have been looking forward to their release, because I mean, it’s Jackie Chan! 😛 I’ve watched so many of his movies when I was younger, and to think that he created his own K-pop group? 😮 It made me excited for their release. Despite the many releases that happened today, I decided I had waited long enough to finally talk about this new rookie group! What were my opinions about their debut release? Keep reading to find out more! 🙂
JJCC (pronounced Double JC) is, as I’ve mentioned countless times, Jackie Chan’s K-pop group, which is managed by The Jackie Chan Group Korea. The members consist of SimBa, the leader, (omg I’m not the only one freaking about his name am I) E.Co, Eddy, SanChung and Prince Mak (or Mac, whichever one but I personally find Mak cooler :D). Because they are such a new group, there are many variations on how to spell their names, so I apologize if I got it wrong 😦 Although all the other members are Korean, Prince Mak is a Chinese Australian citizen. Oh, and another thing about the video – Prince Mak isn’t in the video (as you can probably tell since they’re only 4 members) because of injuries, but don’t worry, he’s part of their other schedules. Now that we’re more familiar with the group, let’s get in to the song and the music video!
Song: As for my opinion on the song, I’m going to have to say that I liked it! I was impressed by Eddy, the vocal, as well as the voices of the rappers. Even though it’s a slow song, I guess it’s pretty catchy too, because I caught myself singing it, especially the chorus part. Overall, it was a really nice song, and I’m impressed by it, especially as their debut song.
Music Video: While I did really like the song, I wasn’t in love with the music video. I mean, yes it looked cool and they looked cool too, but I really didn’t find any attempts to actually create a coherent storyline. Take the superpowers for example. When I watched the teaser, I thought they would use it for something super cool, or actually have some purpose behind them, but after watching the music video, it seems it wasn’t there for any other reason, other than to make them look awesome (which the blue fire in his hand was, I’ll admit :D). I won’t say I disliked it, because that’s not true, but I think they could’ve given us more substance. I don’t know, I just didn’t find it that interesting. :S I will say that I think they do look good and the video in an overall sense does look polished. I might not love it as much as others because I have high standards, and I was really looking forward to this, so I apologize and I want to make it clear that I’m not saying the video is bad! 🙂 Additionally, I do understand that they took this method, of placing emphasis on the members instead of a story, since it is, after all, their debut and they want to get their names out there.
Overall, I thought the song was nice, and the video was cool too, although it maybe could’ve been better?! Yes? No? Let me know in the comments below! Would I download the song? Yeah! 😀 I dig it! (Does anyone even say that anymore?) Thanks so much for reading! Tomorrow’s post might involve MBLAQ or SuperJunior-M, who knows? 😉 So stay tuned!
I’m back with another post, and to spice things up, I’ve come back with another K-Pop Findings! Today’s post is about a singer I recently came across, and that is Yu Seung Woo! Many of you may know him as one of the participants of Superstar K4.
He released his debut album in 2013, and is currently part of UK Muzik. At a young age of 17 (his birthday is 02/26/1997), he has already caught the attention of many with his gentle, delicate voice. Here’s a few of my favorite videos of him!
Hello MV – His voice! 😮 It’s so pleasing to listen to. This is a really sweet, cute song.
Exo Cover – Do you like Exo? Hm, do you? If so, you should check out this cover! It’s different from the original, but you can definitely hear his beautiful voice, and his awesome guitar playing skills :3
U Who? MV – This video, again, is too cute! It’s such a lovely song and music video. 😀
If you’re having a bad day, and you need a mood changer, definitely check out some of these videos! I’m glad I stumbled upon him because I really like his voice. What do you think? Do you like his music too? I know not everyone is into this style of music, so let me know in the comments! Also, check out his new single Hesitating Lips! Hope you guys enjoyed today’s slightly different post, and as always, thanks for reading! I hope everyone is having a great day! 🙂
Welcome back to It’s Time to K-pop, and today is, yet again, another Talking about! I swear I’ll post things from different categories soon, but I really wanted to talk about this release, and that is Catallena by Orange Caramel! Tomorrow I’ll (hopefully) have something different than a Talking about 😀 Let’s go right ahead and talk about this unique release!
Orange Caramel is a subunit of After School, and they debuted in 2010. The members consist of Nana, Raina, and Lizzy.
Song: This fun, quirky, disco feel song is approved by me! I thought it was an interesting, fun song. It’s the type of the song that makes me want to sing along. It has a very catchy chorus! I liked the “narration” type thing, and the “hoy” exclamations in the middle of the songs – it made it even more entertaining. Overall, I liked it! I know that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and although I didn’t think it would be the type of song I like, I actually enjoyed its quirkiness.
Music Video: I think this video might possibly be one of the most creative K-pop music videos of this year. Wow, what a statement! 😮 (But really, it’s only March right now so I guess that statement isn’t applicable.) Either way, the video was so fun, humorous, and a pleasure to watch! I loved the overall concept they had for this release, but also for the video. First of all, I absolutely loved the outfits, the accessories, and the sets too. All these little details definitely made an impact to how interesting the whole concept was. I truly appreciated all the little props and decorations that went in to making it look better and more realistic because they definitely were highlights of the video. I find it so creative that they came up with this sushi, seafood idea to complement their song. It was also super funny – I loved the expensive, superior octopus and how she (he’s actually a guy 😮 shocker right. Check him out at KBS’ Gag Concert!) taunts them. The parts with the comedians also made the video funnier 😀 Overall, I really loved how they creatively took the idea of the song and applied it to sushi (who even knew that was possible) into a super entertaining video! It was awesome 🙂
Overall, nice song and awesome video! 😀 Would I download the song? Hm…Although I do indeed like the song, I don’t think I would actually download it and play it in my iTunes, because that’s just my personal preference. Is it weird that I liked the song but I wouldn’t download it? Well, I am weird, heh. Maybe I will download it and add it to my “Upbeat Playlist” 😛 (I don’t have an Upbeat playlist, but if I did, I’d include it 😀 ). What’s your overall opinion about Catallena? Did you love it, or did you hate it?
By the way, have you guys heard about KBS’ ban on Orange Caramel’s music video? Apparently, the music video “made light of human life”…. What… 😮 Do you guys agree with this? What are your opinions on this? Let me know in the comments!
Again, thanks so much for reading! I’ll talk to you guys again soon! 🙂
