Shuffle-It Sunday

Got some time this week! Enjoy this week’s Shuffle-It Sunday and I hope you all find something new to listen to!

 

1. VIXX – 기적 (Eternity)

This song has definitely become one of my favorites. It’s the song that has convinced me to listen to every VIXX song release from now on, with the help of seeing them live at KCON 2014 of course. It’ll be awhile before this song comes off my “Favorites” playlist on iTunes.

2. Ailee – 저녁 하늘 (Evening Sky)

 

3. Brave Brothers ft Jay Park – 울고싶단 말야 (I Want to Cry)

Can I just say how much I loved Jay Park’s voice in this song? It fit so well, and of course Brave Brothers never fail to deliver with their songs.

4. MBLAQ – Hello My Ex

Internet browsing brought me to this song. It has a really catchy tune. I always forget to check out the album when the title song is released for any group. I’ve been good about it recently though. And of course, news outlets are saying the group is planning to remain together despite contract renewal issues. Whether they promote as MBLAQ or not, I was just hoping they kept their friendship and supported each other. MBLAQ, fighting!

5. T-Ara – Sexy Love

Even though they’ve been through some of the worst scenarios possible, you can’t deny that their songs are super addicting to listen to, and this one is just one of them.

6. T-Ara – 내가 너무 아파 (I’m in Pain)

iTunes must have liked hearing Sexy Love because it shuffled out another T-Ara song right away! This was the song that first introduced me to T-Ara, and I’ve stayed with them ever since. Again, I can’t help how addicting their songs are. It’s always a good listen to and I rarely ever skip out on their songs when it comes on.

7. The Wanted – Glad You Came

I don’t exactly remember how I found this song, although I’m pretty sure it was through the radio. Whatever the case, it is also extremely catchy and easy to sing along to; I guess that’s its appeal. I love their voices!

8. Wang Lee Hom – 十八般武藝 (The 18 Martial Arts)

This was my favorite album from Wang Lee Hom! I absolutely loved his combinations of traditional with modern music genres! Everyone already knows how much I love songs that incorporate a traditional sound to it.

9. Big Bang – My Heaven

I’m still disappointed that the YG Power World Tour was still only an East Asia World Tour. The world is not made up of only the east side! KPOP needs to stop using world tour if it isn’t a world tour. But I still love them, and it is still one of my goals to see a YG concert. Whether it’s just one artist, or YG family (preferrably YG family), I’m going.

10. BEAST – 비가 오는 날엔 (On Rainy Days)

I was just thinking to myself about how awesome Beast’s name is. I’m glad that they switched their name. Beauty and the Beast is such an awesome concept. Anyway, back to the topic on hand. This is a beautiful track, and Yoseob’s voice absolutely shines here.

 

And we have reached the end of Shuffle-It Sunday for this week! We hope you found something new to listen to and keep on finding new songs! Spread the KPOP love!

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

Since we missed Shuffle-It Sunday last week, we will be posting 15 songs this week. Enjoy and hope you find something new to listen to on the list!

1. Big Bang – 붉은 노을 (Sunset Glow)

A classic! I know this song has been mentioned on our blog before, whether it be here or a Throwback Thursday. I’m not a fan of all of Big Bang’s songs, but they are still my all time favorite in the KPOP industry.

2. Kim Yeo Hee – 꽃잎 (Petal)

 

3. Ailee – I’ll Be O.K.

 

4. T-Ara – 떠나지마 (Don’t Leave me Alone)

 

5. Wang Lee Hom – Can You Feel My World

This song was the song that brought upon my discovery of Wang Lee Hom and, although I haven’t been faithfully following him, I do get updates now and then about his current activities. I’ll have to a Watch-It Wednesday on his movie, Love In Disguise, so that I can just talk about how good the album involved in that movie was. If he has something more recent out, please, someone let me know.

6. Super Junior – 너라고 (It’s You)

Oh, man… It’s been awhile since I’ve listened to this song, and it still gets me! It’s just such a beautiful song! I love the instrumental. And, of course, this song was with all original SuJu members still present, so it brings back the good old memories. I could keep this song on repeat.

7. MBLAQ – Cry

So, MBLAQ has a special place for me in that they are the only group whose album I actually physically have, which is their BLAQstyle album. Yes, I know I said Big Bang was my all time favorite, but my older sister had their albums so I never saw why I should have them too. And then I got into a phase where I was content enough with just having them on my iTunes.

8. 2NE1 – Scream

So, I tend to like the first version of a song better, and although the Korean version is awesome, it’s kind of hard to get past the fact that I already really love the Japanese version. However, when I heard the PV version, it wasn’t really clear (and I believe I was on the official YouTube channel for the song, so I don’t know why it wasn’t clear) so hearing a much more clear Korean version was nice.

9. MyNAME – Baby I’m Sorry

So, I loved the song, but I can’t say the same about the music video. It started out pretty good, but the ending was so… really??? Anyway, thanks to this song, I got back into MyNAME and went in search of their previous songs, and now I make sure to listen to their new stuff when I see updates about it.

10. BEAST – Shock

 

11. MBLAQ – 전쟁이야 (This is War)

MBLAQ is a little popular this week on Shuffle-It Sunday this week, I see. I know this song completely threw me off of expectations when it was released and hooked me on as an MBLAQ fan for sure.

12. Se7en – I’m Going Crazy

 

13. Gym Class Heroes ft Neon Hitch – Ass Back Home

So, umm… I’ve only listened to this song, but I hadn’t watched the music video until now. I love Neon Hitch’s voice though.

14. Park Jung Min – Not Alone

You already know my weaknesses for good instrumentals. And I just love the classical instruments, so the violins in this song was already a plus. SS501’s Park Jung Min? Another plus. A motivational/inspirational song? I’m done for.

15. M Street – For My Love

So this song I came across while looking for random songs on YouTube. Again, I’m not really a ballad person, but some songs just get to you. I may just have to see if M Street is still active and what they’ve released thus far.

Well, that’s the end of this week’s Shuffle-It Sunday! I’m pretty sure most of these songs haven’t made the Shuffle-It Sunday lists before, so I hope there was something new for you guys!

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.

Shuffle It Sunday

Starting up a new category called Shuffle It Sunday. As I build my iTunes, which now has over 700 songs at the moment, I figured it’d be nice to just shuffle it and see what songs play out. So, I hope you guys enjoy this idea and get new songs to listen to! It’ll be a list of 10 songs every week!
