[TOP 100] My Favourite Chinese Songs (2017)

Last year, I ranked 50 of my favourite Chinese songs. I have been actively searching and listening to a variety of C-POP songs. I find myself sinking deeper into the fandom. This year, I decided to take it up a notch and rank my top 100 Chinese songs. Read the rest of this entry

[TOP 100] My Favourite Korean Songs (May 2017)

My first “Top 100 Korean Songs” list was released TWO YEARS ago. Time really flies. There are hundreds, maybe, thousands of Korean songs released every year. I quickly get bored of songs after listening to them for a while. In some cases, my love for certain songs is renewed when I listen to songs I have not heard for a while. This means that my favourites change from time to time. My TOP 100 list is very dynamic and is never completely the same as the previous year’s list!

[TOP 100] My Favourite Korean Songs

This post is long overdue, but here it is! Last year, I compiled a list of my top 100 favourite Korean Songs. Being the dynamic person I am, my favourites tend to change a lot in small amounts of time. I get bored of songs if I listen to them repeatedly. I also get addicted to new songs quickly.

My Concert Bucket List

I admit it. I have become a concert-going junkie. I have attended FIVE concerts for the year so far, and I want MORE. Unfortunately, I do not think my bank would be able to handle that. I have seen a fair amount of KPOP artists live including, SHINee, B.A.P, Teen Top, Ailee, San E, Jay Park, and more. However, the list of artists I wish to see in concert is still pretty long.
Below I have listed KPOP and JPOP artists I wish to see in concert at some point in my life: Read the rest of this entry

I recently made a video of SOME of my biases in the KPOP industry. I promised you all that I would make a part two, so here it is!

Favourite Featured KPOP “Raps”

The format of a KPOP song has become pretty predictable and standardized throughout the years. There are the verses, chorus, and maybe a catchy dance break if it is an upbeat song. Let’s not forget the random inserted rap in almost every KPOP song. No matter the genre of music, there is guaranteed to be one of the members rapping either near the beginning or end of the song.

Since this has become such a commonality, I have decided to list some of my favourite raps in KPOP songs. The word “some” is underlined for emphasis to imply that this is not my compete list of favourites. This list is also not arranged in any particular order. Also, this list does not contain groups like “Big Bang”, “Bangtan Boys”, “Monsta X”, “B.A.P”, “2NE1” or any groups of the sort whose music contains mostly rapping. Read the rest of this entry

The Clichés of K-POP Music

There are tons of KPOP groups and artists debuting every year, but there are only so many concepts that can be used in such a saturated industry. Unfortunately, many of these concepts are becoming increasingly overused. A lot of music and videos are beginning to look and sound the same. Only a few rare songs stand out from the bunch and truly capture my interest

Below is a list of overused concepts that I am tired of seeing: Read the rest of this entry
