Weekly Recap: July 1-7, 2019

July has started, yaaaay! Or… nay?

First half of 2019 already passed by, and anyone else think time is being mercilessly too fast on us? Like, I still haven’t recovered financially from April trip to South Korea, and damn! – it’s already July.

Anyways, back to the weekly recaps.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not being very impressed with the first week of July releases. Wanna know more? Then stay tune to find out what do I have to say about comebacks from: GFRIEND, Ailee, D.O. of EXO, and Younha.

Weekly recap: June 24-30, 2019

Lots of things happen in a week: it could be a desert with barely 3 releases throughout days, or it could be 3 releases in a day for 3 days straight. Usually when second situation happens, I end up delaying my reviews, because a) I still can’t do time management; b) it takes time to absorb every single release and find out which one you can review on your platform.

Last week of June gave us new music from: Chungha, Purplebeck, (G)I-DLE, Sulli and Minhyuk of MONSTA X. Let’s check them out?

Weekly recap: June 17-23

Hi everyone!

Another week has passed, and oh wow, it IS hectic on K-pop market! It’s getting harder to keep up with most releases, that I don’t know whether I should be a bit more selective with releases I review on these weekly recaps or not. I don’t think I can pull out a post of my impression to 6+ songs, so, in case it gets even more hectic, I probably will have to be picky with what I write about on my platform.

Also I figured out that publishing a review on weekend doesn’t work with me at all, because I want to be busy with preparing the visual aspect of my blog/YouTube channel, and it’s impossible to film/take pictures for 4-5 hours straight and then sit down and write a 3000 word long review that could end up being insincere. So from now on, all Weekly recaps will be published on Mondays instead of Sundays.

Now, back to reviewing, this recap features releases from: Leo of VIXX, SF9Yesung of Super Junior, and Red Velvet. I’m intentionally skipping reviewing Stray Kids because their music is completely out of my style, and I can’t judge it in a neutral way, sorry to all Stays out there.

Weekly K-pop recap: June 10-16, 2019

Another week has passed, and even more K-pop releases came our way. It’s such a never ending cycle. Some of them may stay in your playlist, and for others… you might have to click that “skip” button. Tell you what – that is completely okay to not like a song. When it comes to music, there’s no definition to the “right” or “wrong” preference.

Let’s take a look at the new songs from this week? We have releases from Ateez, TVXQ’s Yunho, Noir, Ong Seongwu and Jeon Somi.

[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.
