Girl’s Generation’s youngest member Seo Joohyun, or many people and fans know as Seohyun, has finally released her first ever solo album. Her album “Don’t Say No” has many aspects that I did not expect. First was her title track, “Don’t Say No.” This song was not one of the things I would think Seohyun would go for. This song is more like Ariana-Grande-meets-Kpop type of song, and not in a bad way. Seohyun totally killed this style as she is as classy as ever. The second track “Hello” is totally different form her title track “Don’t Say No.” This song has a guy featuring in it and it is more mellow and slower. It is another good song from the album. “Magic” is definitely a sultry song. It is a really good song as Seohyun showed off her sexy side through it. The beat is really good and the chorus is very addictive. As Seohyun is enticing the listeners with her voice and repeating the title “Magic” in the chorus. Seohyun has also showed a different vocal talent with this song. “Lonely Love” is a café type of song. With Seohyun’s simple but very clear voice, the percussion and
Who would have thought that F(x)’s main vocalist Luna, EXID’s girl crush Hani, and Mamamoo’s leader Solar will be a great combination for a girl group? The three totally killed their song “Honey Bee” in the way they know how to. These three sang the very lively and upbeat “Honey Bee.” According to Allkpop , “Honey Bee” is a song produced by Mystic Entertainment Keun Tae Park that has a very dominant bass and saxophone instruments. The song also gives off a 80s soul feel to it. As for the song, f(x) Luna definitely showed off her chops, same with Mamamoo’s Solar. However, EXID’s Hani did not really get to showcase her honey-like and deep vocals as it might not fit the song. Luna and Solar did not compete for the high notes as they have an equivalent time to show off their superb vocals. The chorus of the song is really catchy and with all the ad libs of Luna and Solar, it made the song better. It was such a pity that Hani did not sing in her true register. Many fans think it would have helped the song as Luna and Solar have both high voices. But
The highest rated tvN drama “Goblin” did not only dominate the television views but also the music charts in Korea. Almost its entire original soundtrack entered every Korean music charts, it is specifically seen in Melon. The whole album is really good and it deserves all the praise and attention it’s getting. Dramafever even listed the top 13. The first song by EXO’s Chanyeol and Punch “Stay With Me” is the perfect opening song for the album. it gives off a mysterious vibe that was played whenever the “Goblin” is being showed in the drama. Punch’s voice totally fits the song and Chanyeol’s deep voice added some chills to the listeners. “My Eyes” is one of the happy songs in the album. It is played during the light-hearted parts of the drama. “Hush” is the third released OST and it is a mellow, acoustic song, played during the sad but a bit romantic parts of the drama. It is in full English. Crush’s “Beautiful” is another chart topping song in the album. It is perfectly played during the sweet and romantic parts of the drama. It has really good instrumentals but Crush’s voice totally made the song so much better.
CLC has totally revamped their style with this new album. I am not sure if it is for the better or worse because they totally sound like 4 Minute with their title track. Cube should get their minds together and find other sounds or style for CLC. “Liar” should have been their title track. It has a different sound but it still has that faint CLC sound. This song is so different from their title track and other girl groups’ song. It’s such a waste. It is slow and can have a dark music video. Their title track “Hobgoblin” is also a great song but this has 4 Minute all over it. Also, the rapper’s voice sounds so much like Hyuna, in a bad way. However, I really like Seunghee’s part in this song. Her part totally saved it. Another track that is very much like CLC’s debut style is the third song, “Mistake”. This also could have been their title track but Cube thought otherwise. It is another slow song but is not boring. “Meow Meow” is another great track from the album. The beat is really modern and the arrangement is not messy at all. I love how
Dreamcatcher is one the the newly debuted girl groups this year. For their debut song. they have already set their style apart from others. The intro of Dreamcatcher’s album will definitely catch everybody’s attention because it is not a usual sound that you will hear in girl group’s albums. Also, “Welcome To Dream” is the perfect intro for their title track “Chase ME” as it has the same electric guitar sound and the rock feel to it. “Chase Me” is definitely one of the most different debut tracks from a girl group. It is unlike any other debut in Kpop. It has more of a Jpop feel to it. More like an anime opening song. The rock pop and the electric guitar is so good that fans totally love the uniqueness it gives from Kpop. Meanwhile, the next song, “Emotion”, is a complete opposite of “Chase Me”. It has a very mellow sound it is bordering to ballad but more on the RnB side. The beat is also catchy. The girls performed this on their showcase and it definitely showed off their vocals. The last song was “Chase Me” instrumental and it is still a must listen because the instruments
NCT 127 is one of NCT’s many sub-units. We can say that they might have “Limitless” sub-units as SM Entertainment is trying to mix and match the members. Their latest album “Limitless” has topped the Billboard album charts. It debuted at the top spot and is number 4 at the ‘Heat seekers Album’ chart. Mwave reported that the album also topped many Korean album charts like the Hanteo. It was released in Jan. 9 and it looks like many fans really loved the album. Their album “Limitless” is a really good album. The first song with the same title as the album, “Limitless” is a grower. At first listen I did not really bother to repeat it but after listening to it again, it is a really good song. “Good Thing” is probably my favorite song from the album. I really like the beat and the chorus is really catchy. SM Entertainment love doing the ‘all-members-sing-altogether-during-chorus ‘ and it sounds nice. “Back 2 U” is a really good song. The beginning of the song is kind of mysterious. Also, the song is very SM style and much like an EXO b-side track. That is a really good thing because EXO
This album is Niel’s second solo album he definitely matured in this one. From te title track to the other songs in the album, everything sounded flawless. “On My Way” is the intro song of the album. The beat is nice and Niel’s voice is nice too. The second song is his title track “Love Affair.” “Love Affair” is a really good song as it showed off Niel’s vocals and it is different from most of Teen Top tracks. Meanwhile, “Heart Monster” Is an unexpected acoustic song. It is nice to hear Niel sing a song with just acoustic guitar for background. His voice is so raw and I love the crispiness in it. I can feel the sadness of his voice in this song. “Fever” is another great track from the album. From the piano in the beginning to the chorus of the song until the bridge and last part, everything was really good. The song is nicely arranged. It is the type of song that will be stuck in your head and you’ll hum without you owing it. “Signal” is the only ballad in the song it is not entirely a ballad as it still has RnB influences
