[Rina’s List] Top songs of 2018 so far (1st half)

We’re already halfway into 2018! Time surely flies really fast.
Have you been enjoying the K-pop releases so far? I am for sure, as I can witness a stable transition from last year’s trendy sounds to new experimental music, and, of course, I’m enjoying every single bit of that movement. So how about we check out my personal lists for the first half of the year? ^__~

I’ll be doing two lists, one for title tracks, and one for B-sides, because we all know that in majority of situations B-sides become the main gems of album releases. Let’s go?

[Review] Wanna One – Light (+ unit songs from “1÷x=1: Undivided” album)

It’s been exactly three months since Wanna One’s last comeback, and here they are again with newest mini-album 1÷x=1: Undivided. This album is special: instead of full-group songs only, Undivided consists of 1 title group track Light, and 4 unit songs, the formation and production of which were broadcasted on Mnet through variety show Wanna One Go: X-Con.

Usually I would just review a title track, and judged by its quality decide to whether check the rest of the album or not, but with Wanna One, I usually check from top to bottom without prior evaluating of the title track. Which, I’d say, is not always satisfying. Let’s check this one?

[아주 작은 Review] April / Golden Child / UP10TION / Wanna One (Sugarman)

I thought I could’ve pulled out another issue of 아주 작은 Review last week, but I suddenly got a little bit sick, hence had to distance myself from IT stuff to fully rest. That little break also allowed me to figure out which release I can actually talk about for this edition of the segment, since, like I said, I don’t want my blog content to be boring and sound as I was forced to write such things. So the original line-up for this post had changed, and without further ado, let’s go take a quick look at latest releases by April, Golden Child, UP10TION, as well as Wanna One’s performance on Sugarman.

[아주 작은 Review] WJSN / Yoseob / Sungmin / Wanna One

Now that the Olympic season is over (I don’t talk a lot about, but I usually watch Winter Olympics only for Figure skating, and let me say that Ladies single competition was so fierce I almost fainted. Did you see what Medvedeva pulled out on ice??)

In this edition of 아주 작은 Review I’ll talk about newest releases from WJSN, Yoseob, Sungmin and Wanna One.

[Opinion] YMC & Wanna One: When will Mnet and CJ E&M learn their lessons

It’s that time of the year.

Time to talk honest about all the bullshit YMC has been doing to Wanna One within these short 4 months. I’m pretty sure we all have something to say about their mistreatment towards 11 boys, and truly: somebody needed to speak out.

I initially planned to talk only about hectic schedules and its effects, but then I remembered all other awful things YMC management done to our boys, so I’ll be talking about (almost) all of them in one post. Make sure to grab some popcorn, ‘cuz tea is about to be spilled.

Hi!

Previously I tried to spill some tea regarding MAMA 2017 and MMA 2017 winners, and I do recommend you to read it because, oh well, everybody loves tea? 😀

But this time let’s just put aside all those dirty awarding parts and talk about performances~ Here I’ll be listing stages that impressed me the most from both Mnet Asian Music Awards and Melon Music Awards.

[ALBUM Review] Wanna One – Nothing Without You repackage

Hello, this is your fangirl Rina, and here I am with a second review for this blog!

Wanna One just made a comeback with a repackage of their debut mini-album 1-1=0 Nothing Without You! Kinda unusual case for a mini-album to get a repackage, usually that “privilege” goes only to full studio albums, but oh well, it’s Wanna One, they can do everything they want!
