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!
