Best KPOP releases for May 2017

May has been a good month for KPOP! There were a lot of comebacks from well known groups/artists so I thought of listing down my top 5 favorite releases of the month (excluding Unnies – Right).

5. iKON – Bling Bling 

iKON is finally back, with a new image and even new names for some members. It seems YG is trying to reboot the group! This song is very catchy, very hip hop, but they’ve had better songs in the past. I liked Winner’s comeback last month better. But still – this makes it to the Top 5 for sure!

 

4. Urban Zakapa – Alone

Oh man, the lyrics to this song just hits me. I have nothing else to say. Let me hide under my sheets while I listen to the song again.

 

3. Roy Kim – Suddenly

Roy Kim is back with blonde hair – but his voice is still as soothing as ever.  I just love the Spring feel to this song.

 

2. Nam Taehyun (South Club) – Hug Me

I am so happy Taehyun left Winner (and YG) – not because I didn’t want him there – but because I love the music of South Club. And his voice fits this genre better! It’s so good even YG promoted the song on his Instagram.

 

1. SEVENTEEN – Don’t Wanna Cry

OK, call me basic for putting this on top but I just love the way this song was put together – even if it sounds a bit like The Chainsmokers’ Closer (which I hate).  I give props to KPOP acts who bring something new to the table! The choreography also fits the song very well. This song has been on repeat the past two days and I’m not yet tired of it. These guys could give EXO and BTS a run for their money!

 

What’s your favorite KPOP song for the month? Let me know in the comments!

Unnies – Right

I have been watching a Korean reality show called Sister’s Slam Dunk (S2) and last week, the Unnies were finally able to release their debut single entitled “Right”.  After seeing them struggle through practice and recording, I am really proud that they made it this far. The show is about to end soon since they have already achieved their dream – but this song will serve as their legacy! I will definitely miss seeing them on TV together, but I know that they will remain good friends after this. I can only hope they come up with another song in the future!
