[아주 작은 REVIEW] Soyeon, Chungha, Seulgi, SinB / NU’EST W / Yuri (SNSD) / Super Junior

Erm… Hi.

Okay, probably I hurried a little bit with my “grande” return from hiatus, as some of my life issues hasn’t been solved yet, hence I still didn’t schedule up all my daily routine to stick to in order to keep up with daily chores and blogging. But I’ll get there soon! Really soon. Probably by the 1st anniversary of the blog. Pssst.

So, before I disappear again for god knows how many more days, let me do a quick review of some latest releases I enjoyed? Today I have a craaaazy collaboration from Station 0NU’EST W (who I’m apparently seeing in Bangkok super soon), Yuri of SNSD, and Super Junior.

[Review] Minseo – Zero (I’m eternally SHOOK by the epicness of this song)

I never thought that soon after I discovered Minseo with her retro sounding Is Who, I’ll be writing a full review to her next single (she’s apparently releasing stuff so frequently like?? very?? frequently??) Never have I imagined how speechless she’s gonna leave me with both the song and the MV for Zero. Without further ago, let’s find out what exactly made me so damn shocked to the point I still can’t recover myself.

[아주 작은 REVIEW] MAMAMOO / Triple H / GFRIEND / Seungri (BIGBANG)

I’m so behind my blogging schedules >__< Having some drafts since probably beginning of this year is also not adding any coolness to it. I need to learn time-management, otherwise I will never have things done in time.

All the way back to our regular 아주 작은 REVIEW section (permission to now refer to it as AJR [aju jakeun review]?), here we have summer releases from MAMAMOO, Triple H, GFRIEND and Seungri of BIGBANG.

[Review] SEVENTEEN – Oh My! (YMMD is the best SVT album I’ve heard so far)

SEVENTEEN is back with their 5th mini album You Make My Day, and can we talk about how this is possibly THE BEST album they’ve released until today?

I became a casual SVT fan since the beginning of this year after I was totally blown away by Clap and, while was gearing for Thanks promotions, I did a [GOING THROUGH] Seventeen’s discography. I really like when a group establishes a style that’s easy to recognize, meaning when you listen to a song and think, “Ah! This is very Seventeen.” And this is exactly what You Make My Day is as well.

So let’s go and see what’s so good about this whole damn mini album?

[아주 작은 REVIEW] Gyeong Ree (9Muses) / Twice / gugudan SEMINA / Holland

It’s already mid-July! Meaning more and more summer-y songs are being released in K-pop market, and the competition for most loved song of this season is heating up even higher! During these three month, you barely see any dim-colored teasers, everything is just in popping colors, and do we love it? I surely do.

In today’s edition of 아주 작은 REVIEW I’m reviewing newest releases from Gyeong Ree of 9Muses, Twice, gugudan’s new sub-unit SEMINA, as well as Holland.

[아주 작은 REVIEW] Day6 / UNB / A’Pink / MAMAMOO

Keeping up with new content becomes harder as I invest myself more into checking out completely different artists, including those I’ve never heard before (well, I signed up for this when I started the blog, didn’t I?), and also as I’m full-time focused on supporting my bias group who’s on their promotional period right now. So I apologize again for such late reviews during these times.

I’m back again with another 아주 작은 REVIEW, and we have Day6, UNB, A’Pink and MAMAMOO to talk about.

[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?

[아주 작은 REVIEW] Taeyeon / Kim Donghan / Minseo / MOMOLAND

It took a while for me to collect enough releases for a new issue of 아주 작은 Review. It’s because I’m very selective on releases I plan to rant about here, since I’m striving to have an interesting content on constant base, and let’s be honest, who would be impressed reading a dry review on the song you didn’t get hooked onto after listening?

Anyways, today’s belated edition features releases from Taeyeon, Kim Donghan, Minseo, and MOMOLAND. Songs from UNB and other artists will go to next issue of 아주 작은 Review~

[Review] SHINee – Our Page (The Story of Light, EP.3) [okay, it doesn’t seem like a review, too overwhelming]

June 25 is deemed to be a very difficult day for me as a LOΛE and former Shawol. Two of my favorite boy groups released their newest music on the same day. As expected, I’m double deceased by the epicness of their albums. Few hours ago I posted my review for NU’EST W’s “Dejavu”, and now let’s talk about SHINee’s final part of 6th full album “The Story of Light” and its title track Our Page.

[Review] NU’EST W – Dejavu (2nd mini album “WHO•YOU”)

8 months since the last release of W,Here EP with its big hit Where You At, NU’EST’s sub-unit NU’EST W are finally back with new mini-album called WHO•YOU, and it’s nothing but pure eargasm for me and for many fans and even non-fans. Challenging the Latin Pop genre for the very first time, the young men provide an absolutely different sound sugarcoated with their own sophisticating feeling. Let’s dig into this album, shall we?
