KARD has returned after a two year hiatus (J.Seph had military service) and they brought the heat. Their fifth mini album “RE” and lead single, “Ring The Alarm,” encompasses the spice and signature sound they’re known for, but it sounds fresh and innovative. Every song could be a single, with catchy hooks and versatility. So do check out their impressive new release, and make sure … Continue reading KARD Returns with Summer Anthem ‘RING THE ALARM’ + Mini Album
If this is your first time hearing about the ‘baddest,’ then ALPHA is a great introduction because it shows off CL’s artistry, not only as a talented rapper, but also as a vocalist. Another sign of how much involvement she has on this album, is the fact that she’s credited as a writer on every track. From beginning to end, you know she’s behind the … Continue reading CL Showcases Creative Freedom on ‘ALPHA’ Album
The queens of concept (my opinion) have returned with their special EP “Summer Holiday.” The title track, BEcause, is just as you imagined a summer track from the group would convey: creepy, chilling, and thought-provoking. The song is beautifully produced from instruments to vocals. Catchy hook, and especially haunting bridge with SuA’s ending. The music video? My god! All I can say is DREAMCATCHER has … Continue reading DREAMCATCHER Releases “Summer Holiday” Special EP
I just came across this new Kpop girl group called Purfles (like purple without the second p). Love their debut song, 1 2 3, and the choreography, but the thing that stood out to me the most is that it’s three girls who can all sing. They’re individually talented and significant to the group. Three is like an odd number for Kpop groups, because they … Continue reading Purfles, Group to Watch
I often find Orange Caramel’s music weird, but I’ve enjoyed they’re last three singles, including their latest, Gangnam Avenue. The music video as always is cute, fun, and colorful. The beat is energetic, trot through and through, and something that creeps up on you. Check out the song and video below and tell us what you think.

This song was released three years ago and I’m still addicted to it. Check out Park Kahi’s debut solo single, Come Back You Bad Person, and feel the energy! 🙂 Credit: Pledis Youtube Continue reading Sunday Melodies: “Come Back You Bad Person” by Kahi
So I’m not usually a fan of Orange Caramel’s cutey cutey music, or any artist who does that kind of concept, but I must admit I’m addicted to their song Abing abing. Even if it’s ice-cream. I think the beat is energetic, as their sound usually is, and their hook is catchy. It’s no wonder some are referring to the Baskin Robbins influenced track as … Continue reading Single Review: “Abing Abing” by ORANGE CARAMEL
While the words to the song somewhat plays to a breakup, it also signifies a girl moving on from the hurt and suffering brought on by society. Former Kpopstar contestant Lee Michelle gave many something to think about with her dramatic debut, Without You. I hadn’t been paying much attention to kpop of late because every release just seemed too recycled to me and I … Continue reading Sunday Melodies: “Without You” by Lee Michelle
Solo travel is a great way to get in touch with your inner self and explore a destination on your own terms. Traveling alone however comes with its own set of risk factors, safety being the major one. Although you can get robbed (or worse) anywhere in the world, some countries tend to be safer than others. This is even more so for women vacationers … Continue reading The Top 5 Destinations for Women Travelers
I’m actually a devoted fan to the lovely and talented entertainer, constantly finding out what she’s up to via her twitter page. When I saw that Kahi was travelling quite a bit I figured more or less she was seeking inspiration—amidst relaxation—for her upcoming music. More recently, she took a trip to Barcelona, Spain, which apparently hadn’t only been the setting for her latest music … Continue reading Mini Album Review: ‘Who Are You?’ by Kahi

Ailee is indeed vocally talented. That for one I have to mention whenever I review her music. Heaven was like magnate for me, pulling me into the artist’s style and sound. And while her debut remains my favorite with the recent I’ll Show You disappearing quickly from my brain, I’m rather pleased that she’s finally returned with some new music and a new EP. A’s Doll House is soulful, contemporary, upbeat, and possesses a great amount of pizzazz in music composition and image concepts. This is by far one of the better releases in Kpop this year.
YG fiercest girl group, 2NE1, returns after a long everlasting hiatus with the summery, cute, reggae inspired new single, ‘Falling in Love‘. Check it out. I’m definitely loving this one. Credit: 2NE1 youtube Continue reading Sunday Melodies: ‘Falling in Love’ by 2NE1
I’m a huge fan of this multi-talented lady. To a point where I listen to this song everyday and watch her dance in this music video so flawlessly. Check it out and tell me if I should give it a rest or not 🙂 Credit: LOEN Youtube Continue reading Flashback Tuesday: “Come Back You Bad Person” by Kahi

AFTER SCHOOL’S BACK!!
I had to say that because I’ve been waiting, and I am somewhat satisfied. Not entirely in love with the mini album but I’m sold by the overall concept. I listened to the EP at least two times before writing the review so I can safely explain my impression of each track. From start to the finish, every single song had something of interest. With the exception of the intro, 8 Hot Girls, which I think should’ve been longer instead of only a minute and couple seconds, my reaction has pretty much swayed from sensual, classy, fun and upbeat, to warm and misty. I’ll break it down so you know which song rubs me in what way. But before that, let’s get into 8 Hot Girls. Continue reading “Album Review: ‘First Love’ by After School”
So, my love for this South korean girl group goes way back to their days of ‘Ah’. With or without Kahi (obviously without) I continue to show my support for After School because I see something in this group I can’t pinpoint in others, unlimited creativity. After School constantly breaks the mold; giving a fresh style with every release. I mean, look at their latest, … Continue reading After School Teases…with Pole Art?
The sexy and talented MBLAQ has unveiled the music video for their latest single, “Smoky Girl“. I like the song and the choreography but not feeling the repetition. Then again, it is mainstream. Anyhoo, check out the video and tell us what you think of the music video. Credit: Jtunecamp Continue reading MBLAQ releases “Smoky Girl” MV: Hot or Flop?
SooYoung Choi, member of kpop group Girls Generation, attended a press conference for her new drama in a Kenzo laida printed off shoulder dress from the designer’s spring/summer 2013 collection. She completed her look with orange pumps. Solange Knowles at Intermix’s 20th Anniversary bash in a printed blouse and trousers from DVF, adding edge to her attire with gold jewelry and T-strap stilettos. Emma Roberts also attended … Continue reading Stars face off: SooYoung, Solange & Emma
I never get tired of listening to this song, and I just love Bekah’s rap. Miss her, by the way. Anyhoo, since the girls will be making a comeback on June 13th, I figured why not listen to a bunch of my favorites until then. So, watch and enjoy. Credit: AfterSchCraze Continue reading Flashback Thursday: “Because of You” by After School
Lee Hyori returns with a music video for her latest track, “Miss Korea.” I kinda like the old school black & white concept going on, and the song isn’t too bad. But for some reason I’m not too impressed by it. What do you think of “Miss Korea?” Credit: CJENMMUSIC Continue reading Lee Hyori’s ‘Miss Korea’ MV: Do you care?
G-Dragon has released a (crazy) music video for his hot track Michi Go. I love the beat to this track, but that’s far from what I can say for the video. Anyways, that’s my opinion. What do you think? Credit: YGEntertainment Continue reading G-Dragon’s “Michi Go” Music Video: Like it or Hate it?
