NU’EST W Comeback Review: “Where You At”

It’s been quite a year for NU’EST.  Though they started 2017 on the verge of disbandment, they’re ending it more popular than ever before. They saw joining Produce 101 as a last-ditch effort, but in reality the show brought them more love and attention than they could have ever expected.  With Minhyun in Wanna One, manyContinue reading “NU’EST W Comeback Review: “Where You At””

Favorites of 2017: September

September started off what is turning out to be a long string of boy group comebacks, and my tastes are reflected accordingly.  I really do try to stay balanced and listen to both girl and boy groups, but unfortunately, that doesn’t always work out.  I confess that I spent most of my attention on EXOContinue reading “Favorites of 2017: September”

That’s Right My Type: An Appreciation Post for NU’EST’s JR

October has been all about the rise of NU’EST W, from topping charts to getting their first ever music show win after five long years.

If 2017 in K-Pop has proven anything,Continue reading “That’s Right My Type: An Appreciation Post for NU’EST’s JR”

BTS Comeback Review: “DNA”

BTS is the group to beat right now.  After exploding in popularity last year, they’ve continued to achieve new heights both in their home country and the international K-Pop market.  There’s been so much buzz around them lately, from their Billboard award to their associations with popular Western artists like The Chainsmokers. The problem with massive popularity,Continue reading “BTS Comeback Review: “DNA””

The End of an Era: Saying Goodbye to Girls’ Generation as We Know Them

As sad as it is, the second generation of K-Pop is slowly ending. For almost two years now, we’ve been constantly peppered with breaking news of the latest disbandment or lineup change.

Sometimes it’s completely out of theContinue reading “The End of an Era: Saying Goodbye to Girls’ Generation as We Know Them”

EXO Comeback Review: “Power”

EXO is going all in on their superpower idea, and my not-so-inner geek is absolutely loving it. Aside from “Mama,” most references to their debut concept have been pretty subtle. Music videos like “Lucky One” and “Ko Ko Bop” were more on the artsy side, hinting at their elemental abilities through cool visual techniques. SoContinue reading “EXO Comeback Review: “Power””
