[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…

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.

Inspired: Erasing You

“I couldn’t help it so I threw it all out. I erased all of my emotions. But…I couldn’t erase you because my heart was too sad.” (VIXX-Error)

Yep…this song is still totally getting to me. And the hole that the sad lyrics and MV plot left in my chest is still there every time I listen to this song, and even afterwards. Honestly, out of all the VIXX songs, this one definitely has my favourite lyrics. The sadness in them…it just gets to me, and I can’t help but feel really sad whenever I hear it.

I actually really like pretty much every song on this album, though. The lyrics of “Youth Hurts” also get to me every time…this album is such an emotional roller coaster. I go from really sad, to fangirling, to being even sadder. But I love it anyways…I guess good music can do that to your emotions.

I’ll end off this post with a particular lyric from “Youth Hurts” that really resonated with me:

“Don’t speak too easily. Don’t envy us. Our youth hurts so much.” (VIXX-Youth Hurts)

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!
