My 8 most favorite K-pop albums of 2018


After completing my Top 18 K-pop songs of 2018 list the other day, I thought that I can’t just leave out the album evaluations, and so, here’s my quick list of 8 most beloved albums of 2018. I must say, there are few EPs that impressed me more in its overall composition and completion than the included tracks on their own, so there will be titles you never saw coming because they weren’t on my mentioned Top 18 list.

[아주 작은 Review] VIXX / HA:TFELT / DJ Hyo / A’Pink

Last post for today, phew! Let me say it again: April is a crazy month for new releases.

So for today’s episode of 아주 작은 Review, I’m featuring releases from VIXX, HA:TFELT, DJ Hyo, and A’Pink.
