Nah that ain't. ITZY was supposed to debut 2 years after Twice, but we had to wait for 4 years instead.
SM has been concentrating on boy groups for sure, their NCT project is the biggest and most ambitious one yet, and they most definitely sunk a lot of money into it. Money that could have gone to SM Rookies a while ago.

Did I miss something about Oh My Girl?

Was looking through my Kpop playlist on Spotify and Liar Liar is grayed out

SM was supposed to debut a girl group last year, but apparently they were disappointed with the trainees they had + Red Velvet blowing up delayed it.

Didn't save the previous link so I submitted another poll to update my stuff since I thought about it a bit more. Hope that's OK

I love these videos:


They're especially cool when you have a tablet, 2-in-1 laptop, or monitor that can be flipped vertically.

I like it, but it could have been better. Kinda basic. Chorus is pretty disappointing. I liked what he did with Yuri and Always Find You more, though it was pretty basic too.

Not bad, I just don't like the effects on her voice. Almost makes her sound like a different person. The vocals need to be a bit clearer, IMHO.
It's cleaner on spotify. I remember this was an issue on one of her earlier releases, and they ended up taking the mv down and reuploading it. Audio mixing aside, I love the song. Tiffany stays #1 when it comes to solo releases.

That's quite the name to live up to.

SM Entertainment to launch K-pop supergroup with EXO, SHINee and NCT members
Industry sources in Korea claimed that EXO’s Kai and Baekhyun, SHINee star Taemin, and NCT’s Taeyong, Mark, Lucas and Ten will be debuting as a new group later this year.

While this isn’t a unit spin-off, sources assured fans that their original and main groups will get priority, so SHINee, EXO and NCT devotees needn’t worry.
Basically, the members that either aren't in the military or actually want to do music stuff are getting shoved into what amounts to an extended Station collab.

Haven't really seen it mentioned, but Oh My Girl will be coming back in a few days. Not sure what to expect after the first teaser. I just want them to make another "fun" single. The other teasers look promising. Very summer.

I love it! The vocal effects are weird at times like Born Again was, but I'm sure it won't bother me after repeat.
Before TaeTae Waifu became my ultimate bias I followed Tiffany/Jessica a lot, Her potentials is her husky vocals that she can belt and not these robotic vocals she showing as a solo artist

Ever since Tiffany left SM she has done herself justice but to me I really think she not showing her true potential still. She was kinda getting there with Lips on Lips and Born Again but anyways these cover are more what I want to see from her.

I was happy when this collab happened. Mainly because it meant that one of my very fave from P101, dancing goddess Yu Sua, wasn't jobless anymore. Same goes for my fave in Kpop Star, Hyerim. But now, I don't know what either of them are up to. Sua, apparently will finally debut in OAHSIS, but I've been waiting for so long at this point and she transferred from so many companies, I'll just believe it when I see it.


It's a good song, but those effects on her voice are definitely ruining it for me. Unecessary and makes her sound generic, not like herself, while she has a distinctive amazing voice.

Some of y'all need to stop being so damn icy 😛


Yeji is my main ITZY bias, but damn isn't Yuna creeping up through my bias list. She shines so much while performing, it's fun to watch her. ICY is her era in my opinion.

Haven't really seen it mentioned, but Oh My Girl will be coming back in a few days. Not sure what to expect after the first teaser. I just want them to make another "fun" single. The other teasers look promising. Very summer.


I'm truly excited for this, I can only hope they'll deliver something akin to anything they released in 2016, which is, to me, their peak year in terms of music.

Hey I'm looking for a certain KPOP music video. It features a solo female artist with red hair and most of the MV is her around a swimming pool. Anyone know the name of it?

Yep, hopefully the salty netizens don't go ballistic and start doing dumb shit like what typically occurs.
Netizens will complain no matter what the issue maybe but they can be ignored mostly.

Kang Daniel on the other hand has a lot of female stans hopefully they don’t go ballistic.
