Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2018: Intro and Special Mentions

It’s that time of year again! Starting today, I’ll be releasing my usual set of end of year posts and walking you through my favorite debuts and comebacks of 2018. It was a pretty great year for K-pop, so there was a LOT to cover – but it was great to go back through allContinue reading “Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2018: Intro and Special Mentions”

Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2017, Part Five: #11-20

This is probably the most personal section of my list.  I tend to naturally follow the trends, so most of my Top 10 songs were really popular in Korea or internationally (or both). But interestingly enough, this second tier speaks a lot to my more individual tastes. Given the content of half of these songs,Continue reading “Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2017, Part Five: #11-20”

Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2017, Part One: #51-100

About a year ago, I kicked off this blog with my 50 favorite K-pop songs of 2016 listed by season.  This time, I decided it would be fun to do an “official” ranking. So, I grabbed a set of index cards and wrote down all the songs I wanted to talk about… only to endContinue reading “Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2017, Part One: #51-100”

That Time I Went to See K.A.R.D.: Wild Tour in London 2017

I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I went to see K.A.R.D.! It seriously only feels like it was a few days ago.  Getting to see one K-Pop group this summer was already pretty lucky. But when K.A.R.D. announced a Europe tour, I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist. Literally the morningContinue reading “That Time I Went to See K.A.R.D.: Wild Tour in London 2017”

GFriend Profile Added + A Bunch of New Content Coming Your Way

Another month, another group profile! I finished GFriend just in time for their comeback! I’ve also been working on one for a certain extremely popular boy group that’s coming back in less than a week…but I have other things I want to do, so I might put it to the side for a week or two. IContinue reading “GFriend Profile Added + A Bunch of New Content Coming Your Way”

Favorites of 2017: July

I had my suspicions before, but July proved I’m heavily biased towards SM artists.  It’s more of a “I like their music/style” thing rather than a “SM is the best/blindly following the company” thing, but there it is. I always try to be diverse, since there are so many other groups out there to love.Continue reading “Favorites of 2017: July”

Favorites of 2017: April

April was one of those months where everyone and their mother had a comeback.  There was so much music that it was definitely hard to keep up!  For someone so multifandom as I am, it got pretty overwhelming.  But the good part was that there was a lot of variety and that there was somethingContinue reading “Favorites of 2017: April”

K.A.R.D. Comeback Review: “Rumor”

Is there anything K.A.R.D. can’t do?  They’ve got an international following most K-pop groups would kill to have, and they haven’t even officially debuted yet!  Who’d have thought six months ago that they’d be popular enough to tour the Americas?  I was already on board with them back when they came out with “Oh Na Na,” but I findContinue reading “K.A.R.D. Comeback Review: “Rumor””

Favorites of 2017: February

While there were several newer groups like K.A.R.D. that had strong comebacks, February belonged to the heavy hitters.  Red Velvet dominated the first half of the month, while top groups of 2016 BTS and Twice battled it out in the second. Powerhouse Taeyeon ended the month on a high note with a solid album.  There was aContinue reading “Favorites of 2017: February”

K.A.R.D. Comeback Review: “Don’t Recall”

K.A.R.D. is getting so much attention, and they haven’t even officially debuted yet!  It seems like there is definitely interest for a new co-ed group, with many potential fans excited about their future.  There’s a lot of hype over these guys, but I think that they’re going to be able to live up to it.  They’re building a solid foundationContinue reading “K.A.R.D. Comeback Review: “Don’t Recall””
