Shuffle-It Sunday

We missed out on a Throwback Thursday last week, but we’ll add it in this week with Flashback Friday! I almost missed out on Shuffle-It Sunday too (college readings will be the death of me). But, I refuse to fall behind again on this, so let’s get started! I hope you all find something new to listen to, or take a walk down memory lane!

1. Wonder Girls – Be My Baby

Wow! It’s been three years already! I remember when I was singing to this song all the time when it was first released. You can never go wrong with a Wonder Girls’ song. Even though it’ll be hard to see them all together again, especially since one of them is now a mother, I can’t wait to hear another Wonder Girls’ track that won’t let my ears rest!

 

2. Zia – 웃음만 (Just Laugh)

This is a beautiful song, and I hope it gets more attention. Zia has such a beautiful voice.

 

3. DMTN – E.R.

This song definitely pulls at emotions. I think they were too underrated when they were active, and it’s unfortunate that the other members were affected by the decision of one. Being a fan of KPOP in general is tough. I don’t know what’s going on half the time. Anyone know what’s going on with DTMN? If they are still together, and release a new song in the future, I’ll definitely be on the look out for it.

 

4. 2NE1 – Let’s Go Party

I am so sad that 2NE1 is not attending MAMA 2014. YG performances are what I always look forward to. I’m glad Taeyang and G-Dragon will be showing up, but still… For us, the more of YG Family, the better. Anyway, I remember having forgotten about 2NE1 after Lollipop promotions with Big Bang, and then I randomly remembered them one day while I was at my sister’s house on vacation. Let’s Go Party was the song that helped me rediscover them and I’ve been hooked onto the Black Jack wagon ever since.

 

5. Super Junior – Miracle

This is one of my all-time favorite songs from Super Junior, and I think it’ll be hard to wipe it out from its spot. My top 3 are Miracle, It’s You, and then Sorry Sorry. I haven’t played any Super Junior songs as often as these three.

 

6. Super Junior – 너 같은 사람 또 없어 (No Other)

After Hankyung left Super Junior, along with DBSK’s issue, I kind of went on an SM riot by myself (you have to remember I was a naive 15 year-old and my young teenage mind was not ready for this). I didn’t listen to any thing from them for awhile. Then I was doing my usual YouTube browsing and came across this song. I was hooked on again, although it won’t ever be as strong as before, Like I’ve stated many times before, you can’t deny a good song. I do love that the remaining members have had their fill of shit from netizens and the industry though, and are speaking their own minds in public now without much of a care about what others have to say about them, good or bad.

7. EXO-M – Lucky

What do I do?! My iTunes must just want to hear me cry, making me reminisce so much, especially playing a song EXO said was for their fans. It feels so weird to listen to EXO now knowing they’re no longer “one”. I also hate that there is so much negativity going around among fans when we don’t even know what happened, and we never will. Although I might not pay as much attention to EXO as I did before, I’ll always support their music.

 

8. B.A.P. – Good-Bye

Glad to know that it’s not “Good-bye”, but rather “See you later”. This is probably one of my favorite songs from them that’s more on the ballad side. I’m not as into B.A.P as Darice is, but they definitely have a place in my KPOP heart, which knows no end. I don’t think it’ll be long before I’m on the same boat as Darice is with them. 1004 definitely got me closer. I think they’re a talented group and I cannot wait to hear from them again. Hoping they get a good rest so they can come back stronger than ever.

 

9. Tablo ft Jinsil – 나쁘다 (Bad)

I am so glad that Epik High was able to stay together, even though I didn’t really know what was going on. I just knew something was off when Tablo made a solo comeback. I loved it, no doubt, but it’s always better when a group is whole. I get more excited and my feels can sometimes spill over. Jinsil’s voice here caught me by surprise, and hearing it again now makes me wonder why I still haven’t looked her up. She has such a unique voice!

 

10. Lee Seung Hwan ft Jo Kwon – Dunk Shot

Oh, man, this song! Again, found through YouTube browsing. If you haven’t yet heard this song, you have missed out on one of the greatest KPOP songs ever! And I absolutely loved Jo Kwon’s featuring here. It’s a catchy tune, and I hope it grows on many more KPOP fans!

And that’s the end for this week’s Shuffle-It Sunday! I hope you found something new to listen to, or joined me in a walk down memory lane, some being quite recent.

Shuffle-It Sunday

Although I’m not missing Shuffle-It Sunday this week, due to a busy schedule, I had to miss Spontaneous Saturday yesterday, and there was so much to talk about too! You will definitely hear from us about Spontaneous Saturday this week though, along with a Transformation Tuesday.

Enjoy the list and I hope you all find something new to listen to!

1. Wang Lee Hom – Can You Feel My World

 

2. TTS – Baby Steps

This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Funny thing is that it introduced me to the original English version. I can’t help but feel sad though. Every time I hear an SNSD song now, I can’t help but feel different, knowing that there’s only 8 members now. It’s a feeling that pulls at my KPOP heart.

3. Lim Jeong Hee ft Jo Kwon – 헤어지러 가는 길 (On the way to Break Up)

It’s been some emotionally-themed songs so far for Shuffle-It Sunday this week, and with all the bad news that fans can’t help but recently be reminded of for 2014 KPOP, I guess the tunes fit well. Here’s to a better outro for the year, and if not, then may 2015 bring KPOP fans more happiness.

4. Outsider – 외톨이 (Loner)

And the mood continues…

5. Bangtan Boys – Danger

And my iTunes’ mood has changed! I don’t want to be a 누나 팬 (noona fan) but BTS is slowly trying to break that part of me. If you remember me mentioning last time, I’m huge on hip-hop and R&B music in KPOP thanks to 1TYM and Big Bang and BTS reminds me so much of them. But most of all, I like all of the members’ personalities. They’re such dorks, it’s adorable.

왜 나를 시험해… 다들 상남자 이다! 정말 멋있어요!

6. Jay Chou – 飘移 (Drift)

One of my all-time favorite Asian pop artists!

7. Yoseob & Drama – 첫 눈 그리고 첫 키스 (First Snow, First Kiss)

The way the weather is now, here in Minnesota, I won’t be surprised if we get a white Halloween this year. I don’t think winter here will live up to how romantic this song is though. And once again, DTMN where are you?! Yoseob, you’re voice is always beautiful.

8. JJ Lin – 期待你的爱 (Waiting for Your Love)

Where is this guy too?! JJ’s voice is so beautiful!

9. After School – Someone is You

I like After School’s system and their concept of “graduation” but I can’t help think about old members and miss them as a part of the group, especially Kahi. She was my favorite member.

10. Fahrenheit – 傻傻的勇氣 (Foolish Courage)

If anything, the instruments incorporated into this song is what won me over. This group will forever be at the top of my list for mandopop boy bands. I don’t even know any of the recent ones, excluding the ones thrown into the industry by KPOP companies. And the drama that turned me into a Fahrenheit fangirl, the Taiwanese adaptation of Hana Kimi, will always hold a special place in my heart, although I will never ever watch it ever again.

And that brings us to a close! So many good songs came out from the shuffle this week! I hope you all found something new to listen to!

Shuffle-It Sunday

I’m not missing it this week! Here’s our Shuffle-It Sunday for this week! Hope you enjoy the list and find something new to listen to.

1. EXO-M – Thunder

It feels so weird now, listening to EXO’s songs and hearing Kris’ voice in it still, especially from the “Overdose” album. But, everyone appreciates good music, and this song is most definitely a good song, if not more. Here’s to hoping that SM will give EXO the break they need, and the time it takes to move on and get a fresh, new feel when they have another comeback.

2. CN Blue – 나 그대보다 (Myself More Than You)

I am so excited to see this group at KCON this year! We got to see them at the KBS LA Korea Festival back in April, and their fan service made me love them more. And, in my opinion, they were, hands down, the best performance that night. Yonghwa knows how to get his crowd going! CN Blue definitely shocked more than expected.

3. FT Island – 너의 말 (Your Words)

 

4. Seung Ri – White Love

 

5. J.Min – 일어나 (Stand Up)

So, I feel like she’s an underdog of SM Entertainment. Of course, I watched the drama, and this song completely caught my attention when I first heard it. Can you imagine my shock when I found out she was under SM Entertainment? I mean, when did SM Entertainment start recruiting someone like J.Min? I hope they give her more attention and promote her a whole lot more than it seems like they’re doing now.

6. FT Island – You’ll Be In My Heart

Okay, FT Island seriously needs more attention. This song is just beautiful!

7. DBSK – Lovin’ You

My iTunes sure is being cruel. How does it shuffle to DB5K songs twice in a week for Shuffle It Sunday? Man, do I miss them as a whole.

8. Dalmatian – Lost In Love

So, like, umm… what happened to this group? I hate it when KPOP groups are put out there, and taken down so quickly. I know there was a scandal with one of the members, but what happened to them before that? There have only been two albums that I’m aware of from them. And I feel like they were in the industry for at least 3-4 years.

9. Son Dam Bi – Can’t U See

So, where is the music video for this song? There are teasers all over YouTube, but I can’t find the music video anywhere! Maybe I’m just not looking hard enough. If anyone knows, please let us know.

10. BEAST – Shock

I’ve seen their music video for “Good Luck”; just have to review it. But I happen to come across BEAST when I was still very into buying DVDs from the local market of KPOP music video compilations, and they were on one. It was “Say No” that I saw, but they caught my attention, and I’ve listened to nearly all their songs to date. And is their new album not yet available on iTunes?

And our Shuffle-It Sunday ends here!

Shuffle It Sunday

Alright, for our lack of posts, we apologize. Finals are just around the corner and we’ve just become a lot more busier than we expected. However, hopefully we can catch up this week with a Throwback Thursday, Flashback Friday, and get Spontaneous Saturday going.

Anyway, enjoy the songs below and I hope you all find something new to listen to.
