OMO: Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb~~~~! DAMN IT WON’T STOP! – [Red Velvet’s Dumb Dumb MV Review]

I regret not reviewing Happiness last year so I am not missing this chance ever!

If you are still reading up to this point I can see that you are still not hooked with the title and you haven’t seen the MV yet, so come join the high watch the video below! NOW!

I unknowingly, subconsciously, followed the teasers for this MV and from the earlier snippets of it kind of already gave the vibe that ‘Dumb Dumb’ will alot be more experimental and crazier than any other SM-produced MVs out there. And it did stood up to that reputation.

Hell yea let it be my EXODUS! (EXODUS Album Review)

2015033111204718861

EXO, now composed of ten members, came back with a stunningly made album “EXODUS”, showcasing each of the members’ improved skills in singing and rapping. It only goes to show that their group is totally moving forward to what happened in their last comeback. We welcome the new and improved faces of the group.

Stronger and Sexier. These are the two things that I saw in this album. More hip thrusts, flirtatious lines that will surely make the fangirls faint. From school boys who transformed into wolves, to sexy men in a cool sports car, let’s see and dig deeper to what has improved on each of the tracks on this album.

Let’s get right to it, shall we? Continue reading

OMO: Oppas Are Growing Up – [D&E’s Growing Pains MV Review]

Who waited for this to come out because they are intrigued?

*raises hand*

ME!

Yes. The previews tickled my inquisitive side because Why on Earth are they crying?!!! I was not disappointed on the answer. It is one hell of a storyline. I love it!

First things first; We all know that these Super Junior subunit-slash-duo does not do ‘serious’ and ’emotional’, right? I bet you all have seen both Oppa Oppa and Motorcycle, right? They are funky, playful, bright and groove worthy but they are Continue reading

OMO: Would You Gather Go CRAZY?! – [4Minute’s Crazy MV Review]

4MINUTE Crazy

You just don’t know how psyched I am. You just don’t know how relieved I felt for this release. After a whole week of almost no release, KPop is rolling again. I am happy. I am super HAPPY! 😀

Okay, honestly, my first play with this MV didn’t make me swoon over it but I yes, this is one of those MVs that when you play again, well it sips you in. It’s definitely Crazy!

Although I am still not a firm believer of slow bridges on a Hip Hop song, I think they are successful in making me re-evaluate my views on that because man, that’s sexy! What am I thinking? I still wonder though why this still started with Hyuna but I am not complaining because her raspy voice definitely bring that mood up and it is really appropriate for a synth-ish chorus. It’s all cool and good.

It’s black and white. Yeah, black and white does it every single freaking time, isn’t it? It’s edgy, artistic and you can use it on a whole variety of genres. Being black and white shot the whole concept of cool off the roof, fiercer and definitely badass. It looks like a high-end thing, I am not denying that. It’s a whole new level of flawless in an MV. It’s definitely sleek! (Wow… I am exhausting my adjectives here… isn’t it?! It deserves the praise though)

AAAANNNDDDD…. We all have a “Hyuna Issue” whether we like to admit it or not, I am glad that each of the girls got a somehow equal amount of lines and screen times in this one. They all look great. The group sounds great!

4Minute has found their genre! I am so happy for them.

Although I am not sure how the choreography looks like, the MV compensated for the fact that they haven’t shown the dance routine. And from the looks of it, the chorus part has a rather easy to follow step and that’s good. I am not sure with the a bit sexy thing towards the end but the chorus is definitely had it going on, so no problems.

I know this a rather short review but let me tell you, just play that vid above and let’s all go CRAZYYYYY!!!

And as a conclusion let me tell you this; This is my most favorite 4Minute MV ever and this song rocks! So go play that!!!

OMO: You and All The Things He Has Been Through – [G.Soul’s You MV Review]

It is quite a debut explosion these year so yes, we are with the second review for a debut this year and don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. I am actually having fun. This is really refreshing. It is nice.

There is one thing that I really really really wanted to tell the whole of KPop this whole time. And it is the fact that if you are looking for great voices, you should definitely turn to JYP’s direction. Their talents have amazing vocalization and they have quite amazing ranges. If there is an agency that takes vocal training seriously, I think it is JYP. Although the agency has been flying quite beneath other giants last year, I think they are plotting something and G. Soul is the start of their revenge.

I mean, if you trained for fifteen years and if you went through all the things that he had went through. Well, those experiences will definitely shape up quite a talent.

Random Thoughts: We Are 2 Years Old!

g4574

It’s January 2 and we just turned 2!

Honestly, I do not have any clue on how to thank all the people who are still reading this blog and I can’t express how thankful enough I am to all the people who are writing for Try A Little KPop. So my solution is whenever the blog hit a 1000th milestone on its views I always and will never seize to post a Thank You message on twitter. And I know that is not enough.

So far, we have 44,600+ views and I don’t even know how have we manage to have that many views but that number is huge! So Thank You! Thank You for taking time and reading our blog. Thank You to all those who talk to us here on our blog and on twitter. Thank you for appreciating what we write and letting us voice out our opinions on anything KPop. Thank you for fangirling and fanboying with us. Thank you for loving KPop with us. Just like what we have said on our Christmas greetings, I hope I can wrap up your bias and give them as a gift but that’s literally impossible, so I hope you can just accept virtual hugs as a alternative (っ⌒‿⌒)っ~!

Next, I want to thank Aui, our album ninja, who writes amazing KPop album reviews. “The Key”, who always manages to volunteer to write for me whenever I never manage to write or publish on time and to sehooonah who writes for this blog, Thank you guys! I cannot imagine how this blog will ever survive without all of you!

Thank You So Much!

I am hoping and looking forward to a lot of awesome KPop times with you guys!

Here’s to KPop-ing for years and more!

감사합니다~!

🙂
