Not feeling the chorus of Adios. Hush is very good though.

IIRC, Victoria, Lay and others initially began drifting away from their groups a few years ago during the China-South Korea territorial dispute at the time. Unsurprisingly, most people wrapped themselves in the Chinese flag. Since Lay is still a make-believe-member of Exo he seems to have made more of an effort to maintain individual promotions in SK since then, compared to Victoria... make sure to buy her Hong Kong photo book, though...


Wait, is that real?

Fake edit: I er...may have just bought myself a copy.



Best Jung.

Hush was solid on the EVERGLOW mini? Not sure if 3 constitutes a mini but whatever.

Time to listen to the RV mini:

On first listen, my faves are Carpool and Eyes Locked, Hands Locked

Dammit, I'm supposed to be boycotting Victoria for abandoning f(x) and her apparent views on Hong Kong. You're not helping.


In other sad China news: C-Line still MIA for about another year or more. Cheng Xiao still missing from WJSN despite not being a member of Rocket Girls and even being in the country for various South Korea promotions.

Where'd you hear that from? I watched some of the video below, but that appears to be for Adios even though it says Hush.
You're right, I'll edit. Not the best titling choice on their part, but I was so hyped at the prospect that it lead to a logic fail and misreading of the title. I hadn't watched the video yet.

When is Gugudan ever getting an official disband notice, or is Jellyfish hoping that Sejeong and Mina participating on the IOI comeback will boost them again?

Sejeong is single-handedly saving Jellyfish right now. But Gugudan, heh, I'm not holding onto hopes, sadly. They brought some bops but never found their fanbase. Funny enough that WJSN & Weki Meki ended up doing the best among all 4 of them.

Okay maybe Everglow is getting of that fake view love. They're at 25 million now (700k likes). Red Velvet is at 12 (both after two days).

Does anyone actually care about YT views aside from fans arguing on the internet?
Yeah, we could spend time having more productive discussion, like, sharing hidden gems.

Like this japanese singer called Ruann debuting with this energetic performance in korea:



Or Eyedii being excellent at every genre she touches:

The companies and idols clearly do. I'm not obsessed with them, but they used to be a good way to see if a song was popular. And don't they have an effect on music show rankings? So OMG probably wouldn't have won without those fake views.

Idk, it's not super important to me. Just thinking out loud here. Not looking for some deep discussion.

This song is very throwback, for a point in music that's too young to be thrown back to... but was so brief/not excessive enough that I don't mind it.

Adios is about to surpass Bon Bon Chocolat in YouTube views, there's no explanation other than money at this point.

The only reason Kpop exsist in my life to this day is because of this group "Kiss" and this legendary love song, I can go to say this is my 1st Kpop song. Who else here is the same as me? learning the meaning about love because of this song ^_^

I've been listening to ReVe Festival Day 2. Following the likes of Day 1's Zimzalabim and Sunny Side Up, it all feels a bit pedestrian by comparison. Not bad exactly. Just rather average. Eyes Locked, Hands Locked is very pleasant though.

A friend living in korea told me he was getting the full MV as an ad in youtube everytime the last couple of days.
I gotta wonder what these ads do for good will. Cause I'm thinking from my perspective and my eyes just glaze over on the odd chance i get some no name soundcloud rapper's song as an ad.
