Inspired: Beautiful

“You can’t stop it, it’s been decided since the start. My heart is pulled to you. The moment your breath touches me, your scent colors me in.” (EXO-Beautiful)

The new EXO album came out not too long ago, and I have been in love with pretty much every song from the album. This, however, is my absolute favourite.

I remember hearing the melody for ‘Beautiful’ when the debut teasers first came out, and I fell in love with it almost immediately. I thought it would never become a full song, though, so imagine my surprise when I saw it listed as a track on the new ‘EXODUS’ album!

The song is just as pretty and sweet as I thought it would be, and it has quickly become a song that I can’t stop replaying.

“Your body movement resembles a flower petal. Oh you beautiful, beautiful. I worry that you will break.”

Inspired: No Turning Back

“When I fell in love, there was no turning back. My wings were lost, my eternal life stripped away, oh no. But my one and only reason for my happiness, my eternity right now, is you.” (EXO-M-Angel)

With EXO’s exciting comeback finally happening, I’ve decided to make an Inspired post of one of my absolute favourite songs. I chose the EXO-M version out of the two simply because I’ve listened to it more and can actually understand it.

When I first heard this song, I thought it was beautiful and really unique. A song telling a story of an angel that descends on Earth, falls in love, and loses his wings and eternal life for it? I found that so sad that I actually teared up while listening to it, but I also loved how it was actually a hopeful and happy song. I think the conflicting emotions are what made it so memorable.

I love songs like this, that tell a story. There are so many songs out there about how awesome the singer is, how pretty a girl how, much much they love their significant other. But this one stood out and I remember these lyrics the most out of all of EXO’s songs.

On another note, I’m aware most of the lines I chose in this post happened to be Luhan’s (He was my bias, so maybe his voice influenced it…but I really do like these lyrics in particular). And I still feel like it’s not quite the same with all 12 members, but I am looking forward to this comeback. And wishing the best to everyone. I just hope things are resolved soon, and this doesn’t turn into another JYJ sort of situation, where SM just tries to ban Luhan and Kris from doing anything.

“You ask where I come from. I say it’s a secret, with a smile. As long as you’re with me, Heaven can be anytime, anywhere.”

[8 Days Until Christmas] Countdown to Christmas…K-Pop!

Edit: I’m so sorry guys…I accidentally scheduled this post on the Wednesday of next week (the 24th) instead of the 17th (The previous post was actually created on the 16th…Wordpress has weird time stamps). So here it is…a day late, though…

Boyfriend_Obsession_Album_Cover

An honourable mention goes to Boyfriend for ‘Obsession’…while it didn’t make it on the list, this really was an amazing release and I had a hard time deciding whether or not to put it on.

Today’s post is about my 8 Favourite K-Pop songs of 2014! Can’t do favourites without putting some K-Pop in there…

1) Eyes, Nose, Lips-Taeyang: Many of you probably expected this…it was pretty popular. And it is my favourite K-Pop release of 2014. Tablo’s English cover of it was also awesome.

2) Danger-BTS: This song was seriously addictive (I still play it, even now). Plus, that amazing dance…? I still can’t forget it. I thought it was definitely one of the best releases of the year.

3) Singing Got Better-Ailee: I really liked the MV for this song, and her vocals are just so powerful…plus, the song lyrics really got to me. This song definitely has a place in my heart.

4) Angel (1004)-B.A.P: The lyrics for this song, the MV and that creative use of ‘1004’…I really loved not only this song, but this entire album.

5) Error-VIXX: The MV for this song really got to me, along with the lyrics…it literally brought me to tears. That makes it not only a favourite, but also a memorable release of 2014. I will never get tired of that MV.

6) Overdose-EXO: I really liked this song…much better than ‘Wolf’, in my opinion. Catchy with a nice dance, plus the album was pretty cool, too.

7) I’m In Love-Secret: Their concept this time was a little different than usual, but I really liked it. This song was stuck in my head for a while after its release, and still sneaks in there sometimes.

8) Evanesce-Super Junior: I made a post about this song a little while back…but it has become one of my favourite releases of 2014. I just can’t stop listening to it!

So there you have it…my 8 favourite K-Pop releases of the year.

VIXX’s “Error” and K-Pop 2014…so much has happened in the past week!

Hey everyone! So…I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving dinner, and got to spend time with your families.

I’m just here to post about K-Pop…since I haven’t really done much of that since starting this blog, and there’s a lot to talk about right now!

Luhan leaving EXO, Lee Joon and Thunder leaving MBLAQ, Sungmin getting married (That’s a good thing, though…unless he leaves Super Junior because of it, but let’s not think about that)…but I decided to focus on the positives instead.

Like all the comebacks we’ve had lately! SPICA and B2ST are coming back soon, and even Big Bang may make a comeback sometime soon (But then again, there’s always rumours about that)…and both BOYFRIEND and VIXX have released new music videos, both with amazing concepts!

But the VIXX one…just totally blew my mind. The MV had an amazing plot, even though it was so short, the concept is another one of my favourites (Second only to ‘Hyde’) and the song is really good, too. Honestly, I’m still getting over how amazing that music video was. It was just…if you haven’t seen it yet, you should definitely check it out.

VIXX always comes out with amazing concepts and music videos, even though they can sometimes be a little creepy (‘Voodoo Doll’, anyone?) but I really love them. Looks like there will be even more albums I’ll have my eye on…which probably isn’t good, considering that I still have to buy my winter skincare stuff and am sort of broke right now…

Despite all of the bad things happening in K-Pop right now (And all of the talk about 2014 being cursed, and can’t it be over already?), at least there are some things to bring our spirits up a little!
