2 Kpop Songs I’m Loving This Week: First Love and Love3x

This week is full of LOVE! Sarang~

Sorry I was gone a long time. I had a one month vacation in Singapore! It was fun, but because it was so much fun, I neglected blogging for a while.

This week’s first video has been stuck in my head for the past two weeks – After School’s First Love.

I was so impressed by this comeback song. Their last song Flashback was sexy as hell, but it lacked the usual substance that made After School stand out from the many girl groups out there.

Their pole dancing looked like they really made an effort. I was quite disappointed that Lizzy wasn’t able to participate in the routine though (leg injury) and Raina also did not pole dance due to a hand injury.

I also love the melody of the song! The funny thing though is that this reminded me a bit of Sistar19’s Gone Not Around Any Longer. Strange, I know.

What I super loved is that Jooyeon had so much screen time here!

The second song I discovered today! :3

I did not think much of Roy Kim during his Bom Bom Bom release. It was great, but when I started to like it a lot, it was already about 2 months after the release, so I really anticipated a new song from him.

Love Love Love has a great melody and it has country music written all over it. Such a lovely song to relax to. I played it over and over while putting makeup on this morning!

I dunno what it is it with naming songs but first Bom Bom Bom (Spring Spring Spring) and now Love Love Love.. Should I expect this to be a habit? Anyways, Roy Kim personally wrote this song! He’s so talented! Did I add that he is just so cute too?

♥♥♥♥♥♥

That’s it for this week! I actually have a third favorite song, but this segment limits songs to two, so I will just post the video here.

OMG! Verbal Jint totally rocks! And he’s so handsome! :3

Currently Listening – Boyfriend [Hitomi no Melody]

I have been flooding this blog with music posts lately, neh? Sorry about that. As I said in earlier posts, I have been freelancing and I need music to soothe my mind.

graynatsulucy_ah!

I feel like I dug gold with the latest album. I know Boyfriend is a KPOP group from Starship Entertainment (same company as k.Will and Sistar), but nothing else. I don’t listen to their KPOP albums.

I randomly downloaded this song just because it is in Japanese. I had a great time with Orange Caramel’s Japanese album so I thought another Japanese album from a Kpop group would not be so bad. I was right.

The melody is so great. This is so Japanese. Feels so much like spring actually!

Listen to it here! Check out the MV below.

I am listening to a whole lot of music now. I might have some Jrock for you guys tomorrow!

Currently Listening: Ai Otsuka’s Renai Shashin

So, this is a really, really, really old song, like 2005 old.

This is a live version because I cannot find a PV for this (or I’m just too lazy), but this version is better than the song itself. Ai Otsuka really is a great singer! She is one of my favorite JPOP singers. My favorite song of Ai is Sakuranbo and Planetarium (Hana Yori Dango OST).

Lyrics

aoao to shita yozora no shita de
anata ga miteta ushiro koi sugata

tokiori miseru mujaki na negao
atashi ga miteta koishii sugata

donna hitotoki mo subete
wasurenai you ni
muchuu de shattaa kiru atashi no kokoro wa
setsunai shiawase datta

tada kimi wo aishiteru
tada kimi wo aishiteru
tada kimi wo aishiteru
tada sore dake de yokatta noni

ame furu toki no kawashi ta kisu wa
tsunagarete yuku futari no sugata

isshou ni mou nai kono kimochi
umaku ienai kedo
anata ni deatte atashi no mainichi wa
kirakira to kagayaita yo

tada kimi wo aishiteru
tada kimi wo aishiteru
tada kimi wo aishiteru
anata ga kureta shiawase yo

tada kimi wo aishiteru
tada kimi wo aishiteru
tada kimi wo aishiteru
tada sore dake de yokatta no ni

chiisana heya ni kazararete iru
futari no egao renai shashin

I knew the song way back in 2008, but I did not know she sang this for the movie Tada, Kimi wo Aishiteru. I recently watched the movie (review coming up), and I was bawling at the end. Real tear-jerker, man.

Going back to work! Shigoto! ╭(๑¯д¯๑)╮

2 KPOP Songs I’m Loving This Week: Dreamer & Jeon Won Diary

Although I have been rocking out to Orange Caramel’s Japanese Album all week (see mini-review here), I have been listening to other stuff too. This week, 2 particular songs stood out: History’s Dreamer and T-ara N4’s Jeon Won Diary.

There are a lot of KPOP releases this week. We have U-Kiss Sub-unit uBeat with Should Have Treated You Better, Secret with Yoohoo, 4Minute with What’s My Name, Hello Venus with Do You Want Some Tea, etc. I listened to all of these but did not particularly like them (sorry to fans).

I was really disappointed most especially with 4Minute because I have been waiting for a long time for them to release a better song. The last album was not so great to me, so I was hoping for something better. While the song was not particularly good, the video is like “What the hell is this?” It was so funny.

I also was disappointed with Secret and Hello Venus. Secret’s songs were always catchy to me, but I just did not feel great with Yoohoo. Hello Venus’ song was really bad considering the last two album title songs were really catchy and fun.

History is a new rookie group. I did not research about them much, but I totally love the song. This song reminds me of FUN’s songs or the ones they sing at GLEE. The blending of the voices is so amazing. Plus, Son Dambi is looking so hot in this video.

The 2nd song I was really addicted to this week was T-ARA N4’s Jeon Won Diary. This is a totally addictive song! I had it on repeat for hours and hours. It was so catchy and the video is totally awesome. The video is so funny. My favorite part is when MinKyung of Davichi makes an appearance at the talent show. It was so shocking because she’s always stiff and beautiful when she sings ballad. I did not know Minkyung had a funny side!

The other parts of the video were equally funny too. Hyomin fell in love with a wood chopper guy. Jiyeon gets the steps wrong all the time. She also stepped on Eunjung’s stomach. Ahreum tries modeling while carrying some farm goods. This vid is totally funny! The dance version, on the other hand, was cool.

That’s it for this week’s top KPOP songs! Let me know what you guys thought about the song releases this week in the comments section below! :3

2 KPOP Songs I’m Loving This Week: Mine and I’m Sorry

I did not really listen to KPOP this week except today when  I found two amazing songs that doesn’t scream KPOP at all.

I’m not really a fan of all the bubblepop-themed aegyo girls all the time. I prefer listening to anime ad Jrock music because not only do they have decent and well-thought off lyrics (according to translation), but they also have nice sounds. Last week, I loved SNSD’s I Got a Boy. Not anymore. I’ve moved on and the song is kind of getting on my nerves when I hear it now.

Anyways, as I said this week I found two great treasures that do not sound anything like KPOP except that the songs are in Korean.

The first song is I’m Sorry by CN Blue.

The lyrics are great and I’m seeing a more rebellious side of CN Blue (OMG! Did Jongshin just slam those roses in her face? Kyaaaa~) What I totally love about this video is the song itself. It’s catchy in a band-ish type of way. CN Blue has said before that they’re not idols who sing and dance around, and I just love that! Their songs are always something to look forward too (FT Island too) since they get away from the mainstream KPOP productions.

The second song is Mine by Kim Jaejoong

I totally love everything about this song! The MV, the visuals, the heavy guitar, the hoarse voice – everything! When I first saw it, I was like OMG Visual Kei overload, my fangirl heart is beating too fast! I dunno, but Jaejoong seems to be highly influenced by Japanese music because this is so not KPOP. I listened well to the lyrics so I wouldn’t be mistaken that it’s in Korean. There’s a lot of heavy guitar and Hero’s voice reminds me of Visual Kei band Versailles. I will do a full review of this song this week. It has a lot of elements I wish to analyze!

That’s it for this week! What did you guys like this week?

P.S. I’m listening to Infinite H’s Special Girl now. I like it, but not enough to put it in this post.
