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

As promised, 15 songs for this week’s Shuffle-It Sunday! Hope you find something new to listen to!

1. Boyfriend – 좀좀좀 (Little by Little)

 

2. Infinite – Paradise

 

3. Wang Lee Hom – 你不知道的事 (All the Things You Never Knew)

This is only a snippet in which the song was used in Wang Lee Hom’s movie, Love in Disguise. The movie is definitely worth watching, and the album that most of the songs come from is definitely worth the buy. I even shared the movie during a movie night for one of my high school clubs. It’s a beautiful song overall, and I still listen to it every now and then.

4. 2NE1 – 너 아님 안돼 (Gotta Be You)

I’m sure a lot of fans will agree that this music video was a disappointment for how beautiful the song was.

5. Jay Chou – 四面楚歌 (Surrounded)

So, I did not know that the person rapping in Korean towards the end was actually Jay Chou himself. I was so shocked. And I did not know what the song was about, although I did get the gist from the music video. The things I am forced (and appreciate very much) to learn with this blog. This song can get very addicting.

6. Shinhwa – This Love

One of the oldest KPOP groups to date. The dance may have been a bit awkward, in my opinion, but I loved the song.

7. Fahrenheit – 心疼你的心疼 (Cherish Your Heartache)

The only boy group from the Mandopop genre that I keep a look out for. Anyone watching Aaron Yan’s Fall in Love With Me? Not a fan of the story line, but I can’t help myself from not watching Aaron.

8. 45rpm ft Gummy – Past Luv

First of all, if you haven’t yet watched My Mighty Princess, then you are missing out! That is one of the best Korean movies ever! And the OSTs are amazing! Discovered quite the amount of artists that I would have never known about, such as this one.

9. Ze:A – 하루종일 (All Day)

 

10. SNSD – Echo

 

11. Park Bom – Don’t Cry

 

12. Seven – I’m Going Crazy

I love that Seven featured his girlfriend in this music video, and I don’t even know why. Maybe it’s because they’ve been together for so long. But I fangirled pretty hard when Se7en made his domestic comeback.

13. K.Will ft MC Mong – Love 119

 

14. DBSK – Why Did I Fall in Love With You

These songs always hit home with me. I think I speak for a lot of fans when I say I will always prefer the original DBSK, although I am in full support of the current DBSK and JYJ. This song is definitely a favorite of mine. It’s just so beautiful!

15. Mystic White – Mermaid Princess

Out of the four special collaborations prepared for this SBS Gayo Daejun, Mystic White’s was my favorite, along with Dynamic Black’s.
