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 not surprising, like Choa parting ways with AOA after a hiatus and months of rumors. Sometimes it’s completely out of theContinue reading “The End of an Era: Saying Goodbye to Girls’ Generation as We Know Them”

SNSD Comeback Review: “Holiday” and “All Night”

These are turbulent times for K-pop’s second generation, especially for female idols. In the past year, we’ve seen so many iconic girl groups disband: Kara, 4minute, 2NE1, Wonder Girls, and my personal favorite Sistar (*sobs*).  With all these unexpected goodbyes, it’s kind of a miracle Girls’ Generation made it to the ten year mark.  TheContinue reading “SNSD Comeback Review: “Holiday” and “All Night””

Twice Comeback Review: “Signal”

Sometimes I feel like I have a love-hate relationship with Twice.  I really like them, but I get frustrated because I think JYP isn’t using them to their full potential (the agency, not the person).  They have catchy songs, appealing personalities, and stunning visuals – but we all know that by now.  I wanted toContinue reading “Twice Comeback Review: “Signal””

EXID Comeback: “Night Rather Than Day”

I’m a little on the fence with EXID.  I like the group themselves (Hani is one of my top biases), and I like their music.  But none of their songs have really grabbed at me.  The only one was “Up and Down,” which I definitely overplayed to death.  I was slightly skeptical when they announced a newContinue reading “EXID Comeback: “Night Rather Than Day””

Dreamcatcher Comeback Review: “Good Night”

Dreamcatcher has definitely gotten a lot of interest from the international community in the past few months.  The girls are clearly going all in on the dark horror aesthetic, and so far it looks like it’s paying off.  While “Chase Me” already ventured into the supernatural, “Good Night” goes full-on occult – and I’m happyContinue reading “Dreamcatcher Comeback Review: “Good Night””

Oh My Girl Comeback Review: “Coloring Book”

I have such a soft spot for Oh My Girl.  There’s just something about them that’s so endearing. Anything they do puts a big smile on my face, so I was heavily anticipating “Coloring Book.” I think that this comeback has been a little divisive; either you love it or hate it.  I happen toContinue reading “Oh My Girl Comeback Review: “Coloring Book””

Girl’s Day Comeback Review: “I’ll Be Yours”

It took me forever to check out Girl’s Day because of their hiatus.  Now I totally wish that I had discovered them sooner, because I absolutely love them.  They have great music, great moves, and great style.  Hiatuses can be tough on a group’s relevancy, so they must be top tier girl if they’re stillContinue reading “Girl’s Day Comeback Review: “I’ll Be Yours””

Pristin Debut Review: “Wee Woo”

Pristin has a lot of recognition for a rookie group that just debuted a few weeks ago. Most of them competed on Produce 101, and they got two members into I.O.I. The remaining ones held a series of concerts last summer to introduce themselves to the public. Plus they’re the sister group to Seventeen, who is becomingContinue reading “Pristin Debut Review: “Wee Woo””

GFriend Comeback Review: “Fingertip”

Normally, I avoid teasers because I find them misleading.  But GFriend’s teasers got me so hyped. The Awakening, indeed.  The popular girl group is clearly ready to their expand their horizons, and this comeback is supposed to signal a big turning point.  It turns out that “Fingertip” isn’t that different from their previous work, but it’s a solidContinue reading “GFriend Comeback Review: “Fingertip””

Taeyeon Comeback Review: “Fine”

Love her or hate her, Taeyeon is undeniably a major force in the K-pop industry.  Her album is charting well, and she got both an all-kill and a certified all-kill only a few days after the release – after the major changes to the chart, no less.  Her new album shows her at her bestContinue reading “Taeyeon Comeback Review: “Fine””
