Since then...

Erkk...It has been awfully quiet here. My bad. I really need to start writing again. Since my last post, a lot has happened I guess. I just returned from my summer trip to Korea. That's my 3rd time! Don't know why I love it so much. And... I'm already planning to return to Seoul end of this year. Maybe I should consider moving there. Haha. Anyways, hopefully I can conquer my laziness and start writing again.

New Music: Don't Want to be an Idol by VIXX

In anticipation of their upcoming EP, VIXX has pre-released a song last week as a teaser. Now I'm still unclear if this is the title track but judging from the video teaser they posted, I don't think it is. I wished they made a video for this though as I thought this was a great ballad. Instantly liked it the on my first listen. The EP will be released on the 17th of January so we'll have to wait a bit to get it. Enjoy! Lyrics are after the break.

New Music: I Got A Boy by Girls' Generation

I should've posted this sooner. Who wasn't excited for the comeback of the year after a 14-month absence from the K music scene (If you exclude sub-unit activities)? Girls' Generation are back with a new album and their title track is 'I Got a Boy'. Now I have to admit, on my first listen, I didn't really get it. Simply because there were a few beat changes that made the songs felt messy. After listening it a few times, I've learned to accept it and been humming to it ever since. Hopefully they'll do a repackage album and come out with a more awesome track. Lyrics after the break.

Best Albums of 2012

Hope it's not too late to wish Happy New Year! Hope you guys had a great 2012 and looking forward to a greater 2013! Well, my review of 2012 K-Pop continues with my favourite album releases of last year. Among the very few albums I bought, I discovered great music that made my purchases worth the money I shelved out for it. Here are my top 5!

1. BtoB - Press Play
Yes! A rookie group's release is my favourite album of 2012. Every single song on this 6-track piece is single-worthy and has its own appeal. I used to like the late 90's/early 00's boyband pop so the songs in this album are right up my alley. Until now, I've yet to take the tracks off my playlists. I initially bought the tracks thru iTunes, then bought the physical CD during my 2nd trip to Korea. The origami-styled packaging is cool as well! Well worth it!
