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

No papers to worry about for the moment, so I have plenty of time to do a Shuffle-It Sunday this week! Here’s to hoping that I can pick up on reviews too, as we have begun to fall behind again. Enjoy the list!

1. VIXX – 기적 (Eternity)

This is the song that got me hooked on VIXX! If you haven’t already, check out our fancam of them performing at KCON 2014! The videos are shared on our blog, and you can also find them on YouTube!

2. Big Bang – Emotion

 

3. Wheesung – Night and Day

I cannot stress how beautiful this song is! My one year old niece loves it, and there’s not even anything flashy to catch her eye! Her older brother, my 4 year old nephew, loves it too! This is how I know it’s a good song. Even children can fall in love with Wheesung’s voice. If you’re only listening to it now, you’ve been missing out.

4. Super Junior – Monster

 

5. Jo Sung Mo – 웃을께 (I Will Smile)

I did not watch Coffee House, but I happened to come across this song while browsing through YouTube, as is always the case with me when I get bored. I can’t say it’s enough for me to want to watch the drama, but I like it.

6. Ze:A – Heart for 2

We are aware of what happened with Ze:A and their company. We’re just glad things came to an agreeable close with them and that they are able to continue their dream as a group. 제국의 아이들 화이팅!!!!!!!!!

7. Skull ft Park Hyo Shin – 나 이러고 살아 (I Live Like This)

I haven’t listened to this song for awhile, so after seeing Skull on Running Man and then hearing this song again, I couldn’t help but become shocked. His regular speaking voice wouldn’t indicate such unique vocals!

8. TaeTiSeo – Library

 

9. i13 – One More Time

I don’t know what happened to this group. I do know that they broke up, and a group called JQT came out of it. I don’t know what happened to that group either. But I did follow them after belatedly discovering i13… until they kind of just disappeared. If anyone has any news, please do feel free to let us know.

10. One Republic – Secrets

Yes, I’m a solid KPOP fan, but One Republic was actually the first concert I attended, and for that, they will always have a special place in my heart. It was cheaper and followed the true “First Come, First Serve” concept too. Of course the prices are much higher, now that they know they got some hardcore MN fans, but I was happy to have gotten to see them live at least once. Maybe if money allows, I can take another chance to see them live again. They have the most beautiful vocals.

11. 2PM – Hot

Even though most of these KPOP groups had comebacks, iTunes is still throwing their old songs at me. Not that it’s a bad thing, of course.

12. Kim Soo Hyun – Dreaming

Although this might not do justice to the song, it was a really well-done scene from the drama. Kim Soo Hyun’s voice…

13. Outsider ft MC Sniper – Face Off

I’m sure you can all guess how I discovered Outsider… YouTube browsing. I can’t believe I would have missed this talented artist otherwise! Just goes to show, everyone, if you have time and can’t think of anything to do, browse YouTube for some music! The things you find are amazing!

14. Edward Chun – Give Your Love

 

15. DMTN – Still By Ur Side

Did I miss their comeback? Please tell me this group has not disbanded! It would be such a waste!

Hope you all enjoyed the list and found something new to listen to! Every time I do Shuffle-It Sunday I am always surprised at the songs I find. I’m not that far from 1,000 songs, so I might have to consider increasing the number of songs for Shuffle-It Sunday.
