Yoona dancing to her groupmates' solo songs and to a few other popular Kpop songs. Despite becoming a top actress, she's still got it.

Sad what happened to BI, talented guy. Funny how YG terminated his contract immediately while they didn't for GD and TOP who also did drugs. I really liked "Love Scenario". Very chill song.

YG actually resigned, Han Seohee involved yet again; this is better than any K-Drama. I bet Somi's parents regret her leaving JYP for YG; her song sucks btw.

"Birthday" is terrible but I'll watch this any day:

This should've been her title track:


Speaking of terrible, "Zimzalabim" is beyond terrible. They tried to do an IGAB for Red Velvet but failed miserably. Red Velvet's summer comebacks are like the only thing I like about summer, but I guess I'll just re-listen to "Red Flavor" this year.

EDIT: After re-listening to Zimzalabim and watching a few music show stages, it's not as awful as I thought it was, the chorus is still awful obviously, but the rest is alright I guess.

Perhaps not quite as good as "Gotta Go" but another fantastic track from Chung Ha, she keeps knocking it out of the park:


She guested on Running Man apparently, I'll have to watch that:

New (G)I-DLE dropped. I would say it's their weakest track so far but when you had nothing but top notch songs since debut, you're bound to have a weaker one at some point. They look really good though. I wasn't sure if they were gonna be promoting it on music shows since it's a digital single but they had a showcase so maybe they will promote it.


Bonus 4K choreo medley vid:

I just realized the 10th anniversary of Genie was a couple weeks ago. The song that cemented my love of kpop and legs.

I noticed that girl groups in Korea are much worse not in terms of gender distinction, but in terms of choreography and songs. The girls do not know how to move normally, they sing primitive songs, but they have a pretty face. Agencies earn them as cannon fodder.

I don't even know what you're trying to say here and frankly whatever it is it sounds like ill-informed non-sense. Choreography is bad? As opposed to what? Western girl group choreographies? Yeah , no they're virtually non-existent. Compared to male Kpop choreographies? Well if that's your argument you'd have a little bit of a point since male choreos are generally more elaborate, especially in regards to footwork, but that's because the girls often have to perform in heels. They don't know how to move normally, wtf does that even mean? Sing primitive songs? Again wtf does that even mean. I seriously hope for you that English isn't your first language. In terms of pop songs, Kpop songs are often better than today's western pop songs, it's just a fact. While the girls are pretty, that doesn't mean they aren't talented. many Kpop girl group members are very strong vocalists, others are top dancers, they train hard for years before debuting.

In birthday news, Taemin celebrated his 26th birthday on the 18th.



And Lucifer is nine years old today!



I still love the Lucifer album.



Back to 2019, and I've been watching a lot of (G)I-DLE Uh-Oh performances. Soyeon is of course fantastic in every performance and the other members have been improving in confidence with every stage, which I love to see.

So I guess all K-pop fans have heard about SM's attempt to beat BTS's success by now.


I am beyond annoyed. SHINee or even EXO should have gotten this huge push years ago. This new group can (mostly) dance but they will never be able to have SHINee's harmonies or on-stage dynamic. And I hate the fact that I will never ever get the opportunity to see this live.


Sorry, I needed to vent.

SM is desperately trying to make NCT relevant but nobody is drinking the Kool-Aid. They definitely should've pushed EXO in the West when BTS was starting to gain Western traction, like in 2016. "Monster" could have done really well in the West I think. Probably their best song if you ask me. I think the main obstacles are that nobody in EXO speaks English well and SM probably remember 2012 when they tried to push SNSD in the US and it failed. It was very important for K-Pop and definitely paved the way for BTS and BLACKPINK, but still regarded as a failure in SM's eyes. The worst part is that SNSD had two American members and actually sang an English version of their song and still wasn't enough to make it in the West. They were ahead of their time for that sadly, K-Pop just wasn't quite there yet in 2012 in the West.

SM didn't try enough with SNSD. They thought that one English-languge song and two tv appearances would be enough to make it in the US. When it failed, they sulked and didn't try harder as they should have.

I wonder about SuperM's English skills. I think only Mark is fluent as he's Canadian? Taemin and the others could learn/improve their English the same way they've learnt other languages but that takes time. This was Taemin's level of English last year.
