Hiatus

So if there exists a person that regularly follows my blog (LOL AS IF), you might have noticed that I have been absent for some time. I apologize for this. I’ve just been sort of preoccupied with life and stuff. So I’m on a very long, very unannounced hiatus for an unknown period of time. Maybe….FOREVER O_O We’ll see how life goes. If this is in any way distressing to anyone….tell me, because I will be surprised and extremely pleased that I have a fan >_> Anyways, sorry! I have not become less enthusiastic or less passionate or any such thing….I just don’t have the time or motivation these days. Perhaps I’ll come back to my beloved blog one day! Until then…PEACE OUT.

Song Dump #8 – Rookies and New Debuts

Back for more song dumps! Woohoo! As always, I am pretty much literally drowning in new music, and most of it is AMAZING because the music gods are cruel and mean 😡 But also super awesome, because I listen to my iPod for like 4 hours a day at work, and new music is pretty much a must if I don’t want to get sick of it. So yeah. Thank you, oh mighty music gods!

So a lot of my favourite rookies have been making comebacks recently, or new bands have been debuting. Not ALL of them have been fantastic, but a good portion of them. So I’m just gonna go ahead and start throwing songs around! Here we go!

Chaos’ “Racer”

You may remember me talking about this band in this post, back in January (lol, as if anyone actually keeps up with this blog >_>) Back then, I was absolutely OBSESSED with their song, “Last Night.” And I STILL AM. Holy frick, that song is just great. That was seven months ago and I still squeal every time I hear it. And I still adore their title track, “She is Coming.” I really loved that band. But then they took soooooo long to make a comeback. I never forgot about them, and for a while I thought they’d disappeared forever. But no! Look! They came back! With their first mini-album, also titled “Racer”. It includes the old two songs, and three new ones. Eeee! I actually like one of the other random songs better than their title track, but all of them are amazing. (The song I like the most is “빨리가”, or “Quickly Go”.) I am definitely buying this album. Five totally solid tracks. The music video was a bit weird, with lots of paint-splattering and inexplicable sores and tired and stuff. But whatever. I like the effects and the quality of the video is pretty good, and the dancing isn’t amazing but I love this band so much that I don’t even care! Also, I probably wasn’t the only one totally confused by the random “C.O.S” and “C.N.X” abbreviations. Turns out, they’re ways of abbreviating their name (Ca-oh-seu) and their fanclub name (ChaoNyx). Okay, whatever. At least it’s not total gibberish. So, yeah. A great song, a great comeback (though it didn’t get them much attention… *sigh*) and a happy me. By the way, I really like their clothes in this music video. Their hair…not so much. (Well, some of them.) My favourite member is still Park Taeyang. That is all.

Phantom’s “Seaweed Soup”

Speaking of that old January post, I also spoke of Phantom, who STILL haven’t “officially” debuted. BUT…they are in four days! WOOHOOO! They have pre-released this track, and I immediately loved it. Eeeee! Phantom! (I recently went on a crazy Phantom spree and fell in love with them. Oh noes.) This song is really sweet, a little sad. It’s about a man who forgot his girlfriend’s birthday, and so he’s trying to make it up to her by making her seaweed soup, a dish traditionally eaten on someone’s birthday. I absolutely LOVE lead singer Sanchez’s voice, and their rapping always amazes me, too. I am very excited to see their debut. I’ll probably buy their whole album. YAY. (By the way, I’ll probably talk about it again in another post, but Sanchez also featured in the song “Pretty Enough” by Verbal Jint, and I LOOOOVE it. OMG. Makes me cry.) So yeah, loving this song like crazy right now.

BAP’s “Dancing in the Rain”

YEAH BAP! One of my favourite rookies of the year, hands down. And I literally think this song should win awards for being awesome. The first time I heard it, I almost died. It is so good. And so funny. And so not the BAP I thought I knew, but now love even more. Youngjae finally gets a weighty portion of the lines, and Himchan still only gets a few measly “Let’s go party!”s, but I love it and that is final. It’s a little…risque, to be honest, especially because Baby Zelo’s still only 15, but whatever. I’m not much older than the boy myself, and I don’t have a problem with it. The lyrics are hilariously epic, and every now and then I’ll bust out an “Already, I’m ready, YOU’RE VERY SEXY BABY!” because wow, I die every time. So great XD The melody is totally addicting, the lyrics are way too catchy, and overall this has got to be my favourite song on the album (by the way, the whole album rocks. I am def buying it. I am def going to be poor.) One of my new best dance party songs. Oh yeah.

Nu’est’s “Action”

Ahh, Nu’est. Another freaking amazing 2012 rookie group. I was honestly scared that they were gonna disappoint me after an amazing debut with “Face”, but they definitely didn’t. “Action” isn’t quiiiite as good, but it’s real close. (Except that annoying dubstep part. ARGH. Get out of this awesome song!) Ren’s hair is just as long and possibly uglier this time around, but all the boys are looking dang fine, and their dancing is amazing as always, and the song is super catchy and epic. They stuck with their theme of songs that send a message, this time urging people to be individual and avoid conformity. Really cool, honestly. I love the song, love the vocals and rapping and everything. Very impressed, and really happy. Really good music video, too. I like dancing ^^ I wasn’t too impressed with their mini-album as a whole, but I adored their song “Not Over You.” So lovely. Great stuff, Nu’est! Keep it up!

A-JAX’s “Hot Game”

This song was definitely underwhelming the first time for me. I’m not sure why, but I totally passed by it. I think it was the cheesy music video and the cheesy lyrics. And also, the verses aren’t that amazing on their own. But the CHORUS. Oh heavens. It was my sister that first fell head over heels for this song, but I followed close behind her. (And she didn’t even like it the first time I showed it to her -_- Figures.) And it was definitely the chorus that drew us in. The smattering of English words (“gesture~” and “signature~”) and the breakdown at the beginning and everything…just awesome. The song totally grew on me and now I love it. And their hair XD So many colours! I like the choreography and the clothes and everything, too. (Especially the dance. Now that I watch it again…so great!) The parts of the music video with KARA’s Nicole are pretty blahhhh. (And I’m not even saying that because she’s a girl. She’s actually my favourite member of KARA, for some reason). It’s just kinda old, y’know? Whatever. For some reason, I’m always shocked by the number of members in A-JAX. There’s only seven, same as Infinite, but it seems like so many >_> I haven’t gotten around to learning their names yet, but I plan to! (They’re so good-looking OMG O_O I was equally dazzled in their “One 4 U” MV. Wowza.) Anyways, fantastic song. I like.

C-Clown’s “Solo”

Another song I didn’t initially like. It’s still not my favourite song ever, but the group itself is really growing on me. (I got their whole album, and loved it. Especially “차 안에서 (In The Car)” LOVE.) I heard the song once, dismissed it. Then I saw this dance practice video by members Rome and Maru, and things snowballed from there, until I was wtaching a bunch of Rome’s pre-debut videos, when he was called B.Yu (short for Barom Yu, his real name. He grew up in Australia, so his videos were in English. And he was so cute!)  So I kinda sorta fell in love with that guy, and I downloaded their album, and I loved it. So now I guess I’m a fan! Their debut song and music video aren’t really amazing, but quite good. The video is pretty standard, with useful screen caps of each member with their names and info to help new fans (it sure helped me). The effects and stuff are cool, but as a whole, it’s not mind-blowing. I really enjoyed their sped-up dance practice, though. Original, and entertaining, as well as impressive. Also, maknae Maru is born in 1997, guys. That’s so young *-* I simultaneously am jealous of him for doing so much with his life at such a young age, and feel sorry for him. It must be hard to be that young in the industry. (That makes him…turning 15 in a month. HOLY FRICK HE’S 14 O_O) This song, though it didn’t immediately strike me as awesome, was stuck in my head for a long time after hearing it. So that’s a good sign, right? I’m liking them more and more. We shall see what they come up with next 🙂

Big Star’s “Hot Boy”

Why is it that this song and “Hot Game” came out within a day of each other? It was rather confusing and funny. Both ridiculously cheesy lyrics, if I must admit it. (This one reminded me of the horrendously cheesy “Young Boy” by Taken. Oh my.) And the effects in the music video are so lame, but I think it’s on purpose. So it’s kind of awesome at the same time. Anyways, I really, really liked the chorus of this song the first time I heard it. Really catchy and upbeat and stuff. Totally reminded me of Teen Top, too. Not just the main vocal’s voice (because it’s really similar to Niel’s, wow) but the style in general. But the verses are pretty much all rap, and while I’m slowly becoming a bigger fan of rap, I didn’t like it much. Kind of boring. Not that they’re bad rappers, because I actually think they’re quite talented, but not my style. I did, however, become a rather big fan of the song when I saw their extremely enthusiastic, energetic dance practice. I mean, look at those guys! They’re really into it. Looks exhausting. And the choreography is really quite cool. (That move at 2:01-2:03. Love it.) Also, when I found out that guy with red hair’s name is FeelDog. AWESOME XD And that shirtless guy (Raehwan) later telling people to stop mentioning his shirtlessness, because he was kind of shy. Awwww >.< And FeelDog using a water bottle as a mic. Everything about them is just so…cool. And fun. I’m starting to like them a lot. So I got this song and their other track, “Baby Girl,” which gives me more Teen Top vibes. And they’re growing on me fast. I almost WANT to like them more than I actually do. But whatever. I like supporting rookies 🙂 So I’ll almost definitely buy these. Because, I mean, they’re just so cool! They deserve love and respect and lots of fans.

Cross Gene’s “Sky High”

This was a random choice because I recently got Cross Gene’s whole mini-album, and it’s all awesome. I always liked La-Di Da-Di, but I didn’t even know they HAD more songs. But they do, and they’re great. “Sky High” is one of my faves, because it’s so catchy with it’s “T-t-t-t-t-tonight I’m falling in love” line, along with “For This Love.” But the others are also great. I really like Cross Gene, and I hope they get more attention, because really, they’re talented. Lead singer JG has a really unique and powerful voice, and the other’s certainly pull their weight as well (except Takuya. What does his voice even sound like???) Also, the dance is so. cute. I can’t even. Look at it! Hehehehe. Does it not just make you giggle and smile? 😀 These boys. They know how to have entertaining dances. So weird and unique, but so great. Ahh, loving these guys and their individuality. Awesome.

D-Unit’s “I’m Missin’ You”

Yay for girl groups that aren’t just cute! (Though I have a secret soft spot for those groups, too.) I’m really liking this song, a LOT. The girls are looking pretty fierce and casual in sweaters and high top shoes, rather than hot pants and high heels. Even without those flattering clothes, or super long legs or impressive heights, they’re really pretty. I love that about these girls. They also have very powerful voices, and good rapping, and I’m overall very impressed. People keep comparing them to 2NE1, and while I can see the similarities (because yeah, they have similar concepts, you can’t deny that), I don’t know why people are blaming them of being copycats. There are hundreds of girl groups with that cutesy, innocent concept or that sexy, seductive concept. But there can’t be more than one group with a fierce concept? Ridiculous. Personally, I’m glad. I like this concept, and I hope more girl groups use it. Anyways, I recently got their whole album, and at first listen, I was really disappointed. Like, “Man, this sucks. I only like the title track. Boo!” But I didn’t take it off my playlist, so it kept playing. And it really grew on me! Now, I like a lot of the songs. So yeah. I’d like to see more. This song is still my favourite, though. It’s so good! The dance is really good, the clothes are good, everything. NICE!

N-Train’s “I’ll Forget You”

Anyone remember these guys? They debuted last year with song “One Last Cry.” Which was a sweet, kind of sad ballad, but really good. I loved it, personally. This time around, though, they came back (FINALLY!) with a completely different style. This song is upbeat, it’s a little autotuned, and it’s catchy. It doesn’t have a music video, though, which is weird and sad. I want to see more N-Train! They’re so cute, and really talented, though this song doesn’t do them much justice. I’m impressed with their ability to adapt, though. They get to show off their dancing skills and the energetic, fun side to themselves, which is nice. I really like the style and concept they went with, and even though the song isn’t amazing, I’m just happy to see them onstage again. Yay N-Train! (What’s with the weird Taz shirts, though? :/) Also, why did Seunghyun not get a single line??? Unfair! Huhl. (I find it funny that in my first post on N-Train, linked above, I said they weren’t really a dance group, but that that could easily change. Looky there!)

EvoL’s “We Are a Bit Different”

Mixed emotions about this debut, actually. The most recent, so I haven’t had time to judge it accurately. But I gotta say I’m impressed. They’re from Band New Stardom Ent, and you can tell. They’re very fierce, very bold, very in your face. And for a girl group, I think that’s GREAT. This song isn’t my favourite, but I like the exotic sound to it. They’re very powerful, very strong singers and rappers, and obviously very talented. But they’re just not my style, I guess. I’m not a fan of the clothes or the choreography or the hair (yikes), but I like that they’re not all the Korean standard of beauty. It’s definitely a refreshing change. The song is growing on me, but I’m not sure how much I’ll ultimately like it. We shall see! In any case, a debut to look into. Very impressive. (I’ll be honest; I watched this out of loyalty to Block B, who are also under Brand New Stardom. But I’m judging them based on their own talents.)

Okay, so, pretty much the freaking longest post ever. Took me so long to write this -_- But there’s just so much to write about! I’m honestly loving all this new music, and all these new bands and comebacks. YAYYYY! So basically, what I’m saying is: support the bands, love the music, enjoy the awesomeness that is k-pop. WHOOT!

SotD-BAP’s “No Mercy”

Okay, guys, I’ve been having so many BAP feels lately *-* Seriously, it’s ridiculous. I just…like them so much ;_; I don’t know how it happened. I mean, I LOVED their debut, loved Power, bought both albums, learned the members’ names and faces, all that jazz. But recently I’ve just been, like, IN LOVE with BAP. All these feels came from nowhere. It just happens sometimes (the same happened for EXO and Block B ;_; Feelings overload.)

Okay, so enough of that. Needless to say, I was REALLY excited when they announced that they were making a comeback. And as the teaser photos and videos were released, I had even more feels, and I was so psyched. And “Goodbye” was released and I was squealing all over the place because that song is just beautiful. And then this rockin’ music video came out and yayyyyyyyyyyy BAP is back!

Asjfhbslkbdkah I LOVE THEM. That was my initial reaction. Even though I was somewhat expected something a little different, I was more than happy with this. I’m glad that it’s not another replica of “Warrior” and “Power”, but it’s still not your usual pop with cheesy love lyrics. It’s strong and confident and boastful and epic, with sick rapping and amazing vocals. It has a really catchy chorus, some epic whistling, and even some traditional Korean percussion, which makes me happy because Himchan used to major in traditional music. Zelo opens up the song with some extremely gangsta English, ending with a “Leggo!” When my sister first saw them perform this live, all she said was, “Zelo’s just so charismatic onstage. You can’t help but like him.” And it’s true. He has what most rappers work their butts off their entire careers to achieve. Flawless.

The music video is nice and simple, with a lot of dance scenes, which makes me happy. Because BAP has epic choreography, as always. It’s really strong, really clean and fitting. With Jongup at the front of the line, it’s hard to go wrong. They look fantastic. The lighting is really cool, all flashy and colourful, and the sets are simple but striking. The dance has a lot of chest pops, head banging, and hip thrusts, as well as some intense drum-smashing. It’s not as insanely complicated as their past two title tracks, but it’s really awesome anyways. It just looks so epic. I love Jongup’s dance solo in the middle of the circle, too. WOW. He’s amazing.

I would also like to say that I was (pleasantly) surprised by all of Youngjae’s swag that shines through in this comeback. I mean, I never really paid that much attention to him in the past, but I always expected him to be that sort of awkward member that stays near the back during the dance because he doesn’t know how to look cool. But I was quite wrong. I don’t know how to explain in, but I was caught off guard by how seriously cool he looks. GOOD JOB JAE. He has moved up on my bias list 😀 (I’m kidding, I don’t have one of those with this group. They’re all my favourite -_-)

I was rather pleased by line distribution this time around, too. Jongup and Himchan both got a decent amount of lines and screentime and attention, which made me super happy for them. I know Himchan’s the visual and Jongup’s the main dancer, but I like to hear them singing and see them in the spotlight during songs, too. Wait a second, did Jongup get more lines than Youngjae??? And Daehyun??? >_> That should not be legal! But I’ll let you go this time, because the main vocals always get plenty of lines.

Ah, and of course we must mention the “satoori rap”. It took me a good long while to figure out what the crap people were talking about. It turns out that Yongguk and Zelo are rapping in a distinct dialect, not the usual Seoul accent. I can’t tell the difference myself, because I don’t know Korean, but Zelo does say “haengnim” instead of “hyungnim”, which is part of it (never woulda noticed without someone pointing it out, though). Anyways, it’s a new idea in k-pop, as far as I know, and I think it’s really cool. I mean, accents! I’m always a fan of accents. And I think it’s cool that Korea is so diverse, even though it’s a small country.

I also like that the song is not a love song. BAP has never had a love song as a title song, actually. AWESOME. This one is about getting rid of fakes, people that treat music as a joke. And that’s cool stuff, yo. Good for them. (They can only get away with it because they’re so dang epic. Man.) And the English is pretty scarce, but good. 4 outta 5, I’d say. There’s some “we so fly”s and “get your hands up”s, but there’s also that troublesome “we are the main” and “we makin’ classic” and “let me work out”. Those are all…decent, but don’t really make the best of sense. At least their pronunciation is good! (And I like Chan’s “Baby wassup!”)

(Their live performances are fantastic, by the way. They totally own the stage. They have the most incredible rookie stage presences I have ever seen. Wow. They deserve a lot of respect. The talent is everywhere, it hurts.)

As for looks, they look freakin’ perfect, as usual. I’m actually not a huuuuge fan of Zelo’s blue, just because it looks kind of washed out and cheap, but maybe it’s just the video or whatever. But it suits him, and it’s still cute. I don’t like BYG’s cornrows, either. Ech. But holy frick, look at Dae and Jae. Their dark(er) hair is just so beautiful o_o Youngjae’s is so short, too. It looks so good on him *-* Himchan’s hair is simple and slick, but it suits him perfectly. (Especially with that red suit of his. Awesome!) Next to Daehyun’s new ‘do, I think his is my favourite. Jongup’s looks really good, too. And all the outfits and everything are spot on. I really don’t think I have any serious complaints. Props to their stylists! (As if I didn’t have enough BAP feels already, they had to go and make them look amazing. What is my fangirly heart to do??)

Okay, I’m just going to move on to members, before I start weeping or some such thing. First, we have speed-rapping maknae Zelo at 0:14 and 0:47 and 1:54. Then, deep-voiced leader and rapper Bang Yongguk at 0:28 and 1:50. The power vocals, Daehyun, at 0:51 and 3:19. The other lead vocalist, Youngjae, at 1:02 and 2:01. The good-looking visual Himchan at 1:22 and 2:22. And the lead dancer Jongup at 1:31 and 2:33.

Alright, I’m done *-* Amazing song, amazing band, amazing comeback. Amazing album, too. (“Dancing in the Rain” is my favourite. OMG, the feelings I have when I hear that song.) I think I shall buy the physical copy 😀 Because I love these guys and they deserve it, yo. I will forever be a, ahem, Baby. (That name sucks, by the way. So embarrassing ;_;) These rookies have climbed their way to the top of my list, fast. They even made it onto my k-pop door. (So did EXO, FYI. What a year for rookies!) And now I shall be going. BAP, fighting!

SotD-Super Junior’s “Sexy, Free & Single”

This is so late guys ;_; I apologize. Really. My FAVOURITE group comes back with an epic song and I wait weeks to even review it. What kind of fan am I????

But I’m here. And I’m not even sticking them into a song dump! Whoot! It’s been a loooong while since I wrote a real, full-length review. So here’s to Super Junior, with their epic new song, “Sexy, Free & Single”! (Seriously, I laughed so hard when the name was revealed, and then the teaser. AHAHAHA. Priceless.)

I watched this video about 20 minutes after its release on the 1st of July. Of course I did, even though it was laaaate and I had to work early the next day. I’m not that bad of a fan! And I watched it on my little iPod in the safety of my room, fearing my mother’s wrath but unable to stop myself. And it was SO AWESOME. I was spazzing all over the place, from the first sound of music to the fading of the last note :’D No lie, guys. No lie.

But let us watch the video again first:

PERFECTION, YO. I’ll admit that I was disappointed by the lack of difference between this music video and every other SuJu music video in the world (well, close to every other), but whatever. I won’t complain. They’re busy men; they don’t have time to film extravagant and complicated music videos all the time. But I hope their next one changes it up a little >.< Anyways, this video killed me. Multiple times.

Let’s start with the song. Of course, the lyrics are freaking epic XD Okay, so they’re ridiculous and make me cringe and laugh, but I sing them all the time. Being pretty free and single myself (and sexy, of course), they are very applicable to my life, and so they find a lot of use. (Also, who isn’t ready to bingo? Another very useful line of lyrics). But the song itself is insanely catchy and synth-heavy, but with enough harmonies and belting to keep me plenty happy. There’s a liiiiiittle too much autotune for my liking, but I’m over it. Their live versions are enough to appease me. All the “nanananana” and “lalalalalala”s are kind of lame, but super addictive.

The English is generally AWFUL and super funny, and definitely gets a WTF out of 5, but that’s just SuJu (or SM) for you. I mean, ready to bingo? That seems an awful lot like somebody trying to play a prank on poor old SM. (“Hey, I got a good line for you >:D Instead of “ready to mingle”, you should say ‘BINGO’. Believe me, they’ll love it…*evil laugh*”) I’m also a fan of Yesung’s badly-pronounced “We fail, we lose, to win.” Seriously, guys, stop giving him English lines. He does not have a good accent. I love you, Yesung, but Kyuhyun has an infinitely better accent than you. Give it to hiiiiim.

Moving on to the daaaaance! It’s actually not as memorable as Super Junior’s past dances. I mean, who doesn’t remember the hand-flick of Mr.Simple or the arm-sweeps of Bonamana? But thinking about SF&S, I can’t really come up with any distinctive moves. But that doesn’t mean it’s bad! Not at all! I was actually pleasantly surprised by the choreography; it’s a little more complicated than usual, with a lot more interaction between the group members rather than them all doing the same thing in a line. They often have two lines, with the back doing something different than the front, and there’s some floorwork and Eunhyuk’s AMAZING dance solo and everything is just great :’D (overwhelmed by the awesomeness, guys) All 10 members are perfectly on point and in sync, and it looks fantastic, as always. I will forever be jealous of their dance skills, yo.

As for looks, when I watched it I was all like *-* the whole time. *-* *-* *-* *-* They look so freaking good. Yesung with his red hair, Sungmin in blond, Shindong in pink and blond. Everything just looks so dang perfect. I could not ask for more. (Seriously, there is not a haircut I don’t like). There were some laughable outfits, undoubtedly (oh gosh, Leeteuk and Siwon. And Kyu’s cone. PLEASE, SM ;_;) but for the most part, their clothes were ashgfgbv AWESOME, and they were looking mighty sekshi. Especially a certain Donghae (dangit if I don’t have a weak spot for that guy, with his beautiful face and hair and all. And he got so much screentime) and the usual Kyu and Yesung. OM NOM NOM. And wow, Sungmin looks really fantastic in blond. Dang. And I don’t even think Ryeowook looks weird! (I’m usually not his biggest fan. But he looks good here :D) Loving Leeteuk’s updo. And Kangin is back :’D And he looks great as well. My least favourite look would have to be Siwon. Meh, just not that great.

(Just throwing it out there that I found the whole slo-mo jumping REALLY LAME. Ahaha. I got a good laugh out of it.)

Line division wasn’t that great, honestly -_- I know they have ten members to divide them between, but why the heck does Donghae have 8 lines while Kangin has two and Shindong has NONE and Leeteuk has one. And Yesung, the main vocal, has THREE. (and some belting, but whatevs) That is NOT FAIR. Just because Hae’s good-looking does not mean he deserves way more lines than the others. So yeah. SM, I am disappoint. Argh.

How is this post so short? O_O Actually, I could ramble on and on about this music video for ages and ages, but I already got that out of my system with my fellow ELF penpal (shoutout to Amandine, the best penpal in the woooooorld!), so I’m pretty out of things to say right now that isn’t incoherent babbling and fangirling. I’m getting worse and worse in that department. My fangirliness is becoming more extreme. Oh noes.

I guess it’s time for members, then. It’s always so exhausting to name them in a SuJu review -.- Here goes! First, the beautiful Donghae at 0:10 and 0:28. Then, main visual Siwon at 0:21. Beautiful-voice maknae Kyuhyun at 0:41 and 3:08. Baby-face hyung Sungmin at 0:45 and 2:08. Eternal maknae Ryeowook at 0:55 and 2:13. Dancing machine Eunhyuk at 1:01 and 1:35. Leader Leeteuk at 1:09 and 2:16. Power vocals Yesung (*-* bias) at 1:43 and 2:59. Fresh-from-the-army Kangin at 1:59. Barely-seen Shindong at 2:34. And that’s all of them! 😀

Alright, well, I guess that’s all I have to say for now. I have to go and spazz over the brand-spankin’-new Beast music video now :DDDDD (Yayyyyyy for comebacks! BAP’s was also EPIC!) All I have left to say is this; Super Junior, I love you. You must know it, because I review a lot of your videos and I always spazz all over the place when I listen to your music and you’re just awesome. I was prepared to be disappointed by this comeback, for some odd reason, but I definitely wasn’t. Blow me away every time. Your album had a lot of ballads, which was too bad for me because I don’t really like ballads, but heck, I’ll buy it anyways. (But I’m waiting for the repackaged, okay?) Just know that you have a devoted fan here in Canada. And if you ever want to, you know, COME to Canada, please don’t go to Vancouver or something because that is really far away from where I am. That is all. FIGHTING!

Song Dump #7 – Recent Debuts

Along with the tidal wave of awesome comebacks recently, there has been an accompanying wave of debuts in the past few months. Seriously. And a large portion of them have been amazing and I wanted to tell everyone all about them, but of course I was too busy D: But now I will, in glorious song dump form! These have been my favourite debuts in the past while~

Hello Venus’s “Venus”

A girl group! :O Yes, I actually love this song, I admit it. I will also admit that the ONLY reason I watched it in the first place was because NU’EST was in the music video. And those other Pledis Boys. They are so cute. And so I was like “Ohhhh Nu’est! Move aside, girls, I want to see mah boys!” But then I kept watching it (because the boys dancing was so cute XD) and suddenly I was singing the song all the time, and doing the dance, and watching the live versions, and I was IN LOVE with the song. It’s super cute and catchy and awesome. The girls are really talented, their live performances are really impressive, I love that green-haired rapper/singer (Lime? I think that’s her stage name), and the clothes and concept and everything are so sweet. The concept’s WAY overdone, but I can’t help but love it every time. I like cute, sugary things, okay??? So yeah, this song is totally addicting. I dare you not to sing it after you hear it once or twice. It’s really great. And I love all those adorable boys in the video. Especially that one at 1:32. He’s so squishy ♥ OH. And it took me forever to figure out what they were spelling, because they say “V” like “B”. Confusing :/

She’z “My Way”

Another girl group :O I’m surprised at myself. This group is new and very under-the-radar, it seems. Their video only has 173,000 views -_- They deserve more. This song is really catchy and fun and great, and the dance is fun too, and the girls are pretty and VERY talented, and nobody is taking any notice >_> But anyways, I totally love this song. I don’t know why. It’s just so happy 😀 And I like the costumes, too. Unique and cute. Terrible band name, though. Gah. The music video is simple, with some dance scenes and solo scenes and no plot or anything to follow. But it doesn’t look super cheap or anything. Not particularly memorable, but decent. But anyways, I hope these girls get more recognition in the future, because they’re just as impressive and talented as, say, the above Hello Venus. Really, guys, check ’em out!

JJ Project’s “Bounce”

JJ Projectttttt!!!!!!! ♥♥ I was waiting for this debut for so long :’D I watched these boys make their small-screen debut in Dream High 2, and while that drama was pretty disappointing in the end, I LOVED the characters. Especially these two. JB and Jr. are super, suuuuper adorable and awesome, and I couldn’t wait to see them onstage. And their debut was pretty dang great. This song isn’t really impressive in terms of singing or rapping or even dancing skills, but dang if it doesn’t make you smile 😀 It’s really fun, and really catchy, and seeing them onstage just owning the crowd is really amazing. They have such an impressive stage presence for rookies, no lie. They look so confident and excited to be there. This music video is a lot of fun, too, even if it IS pretty much a remake of Bang&Zelo’s “Never Give Up.” The butt-shaking dance is so cute and funny, and the head-banging and everything. They really know how to entertain, these two. (The other songs on the album are really good, too! Check ’em out!) Maybe I just love it because I love these boys, but seriously, loved this debut. HAPPY!

A-JAX’s “One 4 U”

Okay, so this debut wasn’t quite as eye-catching as the past three to me. I listened to the song once, kinda forgot about it. I liked it every time I listened to it after that, but I wasn’t immediately enraptured. I just remembered them as the ones with the dark, sexy concept.  And weird music video. Seriously. Um. What exactly is it about? But let me just say one thing: ABS. There are a lot of abs in this music video. It makes me chuckle a little, because the outfits are ridiculous. Also; holy freaking good-looking boys. I will not lie. These boys are pretty dang sekshi. And there are so many of them! But anyways, this song really grew on me fast. I kept on singing that “No matter what they say I’m right for you!” line. The vocals and rapping in this band are both really good. And the dance is pretty impressive. I am really digging these guys. And NOT just because they’re good-looking. I think they have a lot of potential. This is a really strong debut (what’s with the low viewcount, guise?) and I think they could go really far. So yeah. Despite the cheesy effects and weird music video, I am giving these boys my full support. And I will also be looking into the rest of their mini-album or whatever.

Cross Gene’s “La-Di Da-Di”

I looooove this ♥ I watched it for the first time because (as their name suggests) they’re a band of mixed genes; three Korean members, two Chinese and one Japanese. I thought that was pretty cool, so I checked it out. And then the first time I heard it, I was like, “WTF is with this strange dance and nonsensical lyrics.” All La-di da-di’s and Imma crazy’s. But it was funny and entertaining, and soooo so catchy. And I wanted to show it to my sister, because the dance is just so…unique. Like, there is nothing normal about it. It’s so weird o_O But I actually like it. It’s so weird that it’s awesome. And the song totally grew on me. A lot. Now I love it. It’s one of those songs that I see and just have to listen to. The vocals are really good (especially that JG) and that Shin guy is super-cute (he’s in the drama “Big”, by the way, with Miss A’s Suzy), and poor Takuya gets no lines, and Casper’s English is epic. Also, is it just me or does Sangmin look totally like he should speak English? I bet he does. You can tell. (Not that he gets any decent lines, in Korean or English). And Casper and Sangmin’s flipping or whatever is pretty epic. And the English is so laughably fantastic. Overall, a debut that I LOVED. They didn’t get a lot of attention for it, which is disappointing, but I still love ’em.

Juniel’s “Babo” and “Illa Illa”

Linking these both because they’re kind of both her debut songs. Juniel’s a solo singer under the same company as CN Blue and FT Island, and I believe their first female artist. And I gotta say, she’s talented. And very pretty. And very…IU. Actually, I hear they’re friends. I hate to compare artists, but they have very similar vocal qualities and concepts. The first song, “Babo” (meaning “Stupid”), is a duet with Yonghwa, who also wrote the song. It’s a really sweet, cute song, and the music video is really sweet as well. Their voices go together really well, and this song just makes me happy ^^ By the way, this girl is only 19. Jealous of her skillz -_- The second song, “Illa Illa”, is quite different in feeling. It’s a rather sad, slow song, with an equally depressing and tear-inducing music video (featuring CN Blue’s Minhyuk!) It’s about an artist who falls in love with a florist, and confesses his love, but she’s deaf and doesn’t hear him. he doesn’t know this and thinks she’s rejecting him, and leaves. She was in love with him too. The end. ;_; Why couldn’t it have ended happily??? Anyways, her vocals are really powerful, and the song is beautiful. I really love both of her songs, and I look forward to seeing more from her in the future.

VIXX’s “Superhero”

This was probably the debut that left the smallest impression on me, for some reason. But don’t get me wrong, I still love this song. It’s on my iPod 😀 The dance, though quite interesting, wasn’t that amazing, and the song, though catchy, wasn’t that impressive. I wish they’d had a stronger debut. Because I really like them, honestly. Especially that rapper, Ravi. I saw him featured in a live performance of Baek Jiyoung’s “Good Boy” (I watch all the live perfs of that song for the various rappers featured. I loved Dalmatian’s Simon ^^) and thought he was awesome. Anyways, the song is fun and energetic, and the dance is fun too, and the boys look like they’re having a lot of fun. This song (and video) makes me smile 🙂 “A-chim a-chim fantastic!” Ahhh, I love it. (I like that maknae, Hyuk. He reminds me of Seungri. He’s so cuuute.) The video is all just dancing and colourful rooms and a cool tunnel, but it’s still pretty great. So yeah! Don’t forget about these guys!

Okay, I’m done. I can’t believe there’s been so maaaaany debuts this year! I am overwhelmed. (I mean, do you really think all these bands will be able to make it? The industry’s overflowing with idol groups. Not all of them will survive ;_;) But I’m still happy. I love new music, after all! So, lots of new bands to keep track of. Other bands to keep up with (AA! Phantom! Taken-now-A-Prince!) Debuts and comebacks everywhere. The life of a fangirl~

Going to be posting a lot this month, I think. Look forward to it! Summer is love~!So yeah, support these bands! So that they can continue making music and surviving! Love them a lot!

-Rebecca

PS-SUJU COMEBACK! So happyyyyyyy! Also, ZE:A comeback! 😀 I can die happy. (But not before the LEDApple and AA and Phantom comebacks. For reals.)

Song Dump #6 – Recent Comebacks

I’m baaaaaaack! :’D Sorry about that long, one-month, unannounced hiatus. I seriously did not anticipate that. There was just so much going on, with projects due and final exams and crap. But now it’s summer! And I’m free at last! (Well, except for work, but more free!) And I have a heck of a lot of song and videos to catch up on. Crap. So of course I’m doing this in song dump form, despite wishing I could give most of these songs proper reviews. So here goes! I’ll be going in a generally chronological order, but I might stray a little. My memory is not always accurate.

Infinite’s “The Chaser”

*sobbing because I love this song and didn’t get to review it* I seriously adore Infinite, guys. We even bought this CD. It’s freaking amazing, and this song is epic, and I’m so disappointed in myself for not reviewing it sooner. Seriously, it came out on May 15th. That was forever ago. But let me just say; WTF is with this music video??? Does it make any sense to anyone? All I see is a lot of unrelated and strange events, with motorcycles and mazes and L flipping in a car like a million times. I DO NOT COMPRENDE. So yeah. Not impressed with the plot of the video, though the dancing, as always, is terrific. This song didn’t really stick with me at first (I could never remember how it went) but it totally grew on me. The whole album’s great, too. Infinite is great >.< But ohhhhh, surprise surprise, Sungyeol gets like no lines. Poor boy. I still believe in you, baby! I love you! And I was so proud of these boys when they won a bunch of awards on music shows :’D So proud. Infinite jjang!

BtoB’s “Irresistible Lips”

How I did not hear this song as soon as it came out is beyond me. I really like BtoB as a rookie group, I think they have a lot of talent and potential, but this song just blew me away. IT IS SO EPIC. I wish they promoted it TT_TT This song is super addicting, super catchy, and super impressive. I am constantly impressed by BtoB’s vocals. And rapping. And dancing. They performed it live once or twice, but the quality of the videos are not top-notch. But still. BtoB is amazing, and this song as AWESOME. The music video’s not that exciting, though. Minhyuk’s acting is pretty good, but the plot’s nothing new. The dancing is fantastic, though! And the boys look really dang good. So I still give it a 8/10. I’m already looking forward to their next comeback. 😀

C-Real’s “I’m Sorry But…”

C-Real’s a pretty new rookie girl group, and they have three music videos. I really liked their first, “No No No,” but I wasn’t a huge fan of “Joma Joma.” (I liked it, but not a loooooot.) But I absolutely LOVED this comeback. C-Real has this wholesome, pure image and I really appreciate that, because I’m sick of overly-sexual girl groups and scandalous clothes. In this music video, the girls are very prettily and very modestly dressed, and they look lovely even without showing a lot of skin. Their voices are really beautiful, this song is awesome. The performance aspect is nothing special, with no dance or anything, but that doesn’t take away from the quality of the song. Really nice harmonies, too. I didn’t love the song the first time I heard it, but I fell hard after a couple more.

MIB’s “Only Hard For Me”

Another pretty new group, who I didn’t really like in the beginning of their career. I liked their one member, Kangnam’s, solo song, “Say My Name.” And “Celebrate” was pretty good, too. But I seriously like this song. The music video is pretty boring (sorry!) but the song is really pretty and the rapping is awesome. I like that guy rapping on the car. He’s cool. I like the outfits they’re wearing, too. Not too crazy, but stylishly epic. They’re mainly a hip hop group, and I’m not always a hip hop fan, but this is a great song. I’ll definitely keep an eye on them in the future.

Teen Top’s “To You”

Holy craaaaaaaaaap I love this so much. Like, insanely. The dancing in this video is just asdgbfklsjdf amazing. The fancy footwork. The Changjo dance solo. The ridiculous body waves. Everything is just so perfect. I love the heck out of the dance routine. (Want to learn it so much.) And the song is effing fantastic, too. Changjo gets a whole verse to himself! Yayyy! (Guess who has no good lines? Poor Ricky >.<) I love the rapping by both L.Joe and CAP, I love the vocals, I love the “whoo-oo-oo” chorus, I LOOOOVE the plaid suits in the video. Seriously, that makes it like 4x better. Those glorious suits. Actually, I adore the fashion in this whole video. And almost all the hairstyles (with the exception of CAP’s. Not a fan of the white and blue.) The plot’s pretty basic and unoriginal, but their acting is pretty good. Especially Chunji and L.Joe’s spat, getting all up in each others’ faces. Ohhh. Personal space issues much? (It reminds me of Big Bang’s “Haru Haru.”) I also like all the solo dance shots. Cool. This comeback made me SO HAPPY, even if they didn’t win any awards (D:) and the mini-album was pretty underwhelming. LOVE TEEN TOP.

MYNAME’s “Hello and Goodbye”

Whoooot! MyName’s finally back ^^ I love love loved these guys’ debut earlier this year (or was it late last year?) and this song is almost as great. Hated the music video, though, minus the dance scenes. Gunwoo looks TOTALLY WEIRD with gross hair. And since he’s the main character in the video, you see a lot of him. And he never looks less weird. And the plot was awfully depressing, and so overdone. The outfits are basic but pretty cool, and of course I loved the dance cuts. (OMG I love dancing *-*) That b-boy freeze was quite intense. Seyong looks great, I don’t think Chaejin’s changed a bit, Insoo’s hair looks really good, and GUNWOO’S STILL SUCKS. Forgive my caps lock. But I hate it so much. I like JunQ’s rapping a lot these days, which in the beginning I thought was weird. It has a unique quality. (I like Seyong’s, too. I just like Seyong.) This song isn’t quite as mind-blowing as “Message” was, but I’m satisfied ^^

Big Bang’s “Monster”

Excuse me, but WTF o_O That’s what was going through my head when I first watched this MV. Their hair is just so…agh. And most of the outfits, too. LOL. Taeyang’s hair is just too laughable. As is GD’s mushroom cut. (TOP looks great, as always. Daesung looks fine, too.) But besides the weird music video, this song is awesome, as expected from Big Bang. I love these guys. Their music is so solid these days. (We even pre-ordered this one. We NEVER do that!) The soft rapping at the beginning is intense, the vocals are great, the whole song has a kind of creepy, desperate feel to it. Love it a lot. not quite as much as “Blue”, but still great stuff. The music video…not so much. That stuff scares me. Haha.

Block B’s “Burn Out”

This doesn’t really count as a comeback, but it’s a new song by one of my fave bands! (I’ve been feeling very partial to Block B these days :’D) There’s only PO, U-Kwon and Taeil singing/rapping in this song, but they’re like my favourite members, so it’s all good! I reallllly love this song. It’s intense and kind of dark, and it was for the OST of the show “Phantom” (which, by the way, features MBLAQ’s GO as an actor 😀 And also Uhm Ki-joon and Daniel Choi, both of whom I loooove). I was sort of obsessed with this song for a while, and then I didn’t listen to it for a few weeks, and now, listening to it again, I’m in love all over again. AWESOME. I can’t wait for a real Block B comeback. I love that band to death.

U-Kiss’s “Believe”

For some reason this comeback took me completely be surprise. I mean, it’s actually a follow-up (as was Monster), but I didn’t expect it somehow. Anyways, when I heard it for the first time I was like, “Eh, this is okay. Pretty decent. It’s quite good, I guess. Actually, I rather like it. This song is pretty great!” But let’s be honest; the music video isn’t the greatest. It’s really kind of boring. Same old music video with lots of staring into the distance sadly, and moping, and dancing in a grungy tunnel. Nothing really special about it. And the dance, though not bad, isn’t really eye-catching either. Not as good as what I’m used to from U-Kiss. So I was rather disappointed there. BUT, I do love the song. It’s really catchy and has a nice feel to it, and the guys sound (and look) great. Liking those pastel green pants 😀 I’m glad Kiseop got some lines, too. Love Dongho’s lines (the bathroom ones). Love Dongho. Um. Anyways, this song is I guess a gift for U-Kiss fans (KissMes!) so that’s pretty sweet, too. Even if this wasn’t the most outstanding comeback from U-Kiss, I’m quite satisfied ^^ Oh, and by the way, the first version of their music video had to be fixed (there was apparently a scene where AJ accidentally hit Kevin, but it was way too fast for me to ever notice :/) so the viewcount is not accurate. BOOOO.

Boyfriend’s “Love Style”

BOYFRIEND. I have a secret deep love for these guys. Especially that Jungmin. They are just so adorable and sweet and awesome. I can’t resist them! (Even if they may or may not be a litttttttle lame.) And this comeback made me SO HAPPY. Seriously. Those flower print suits just stole my fangirly heart :’D And the song is so retro and fun and cute and the dance is so epically epic and eeeeeeeeee! I love it to death. The music video is pretty much all dancing, but I don’t mind one bit. (My sister and I laughed at the “First Mini Album” promos in the background, though. Like subliminal messages or something.) The jumping scenes made us chuckle, too. And seriously, who didn’t love that teaser with Minwoo and that cute little girl??? Ugh, I’m dying over here. Somebody come scrape me off the floor. Boyfriend is love, okay? They’re nowhere near the top of my bias list of bands, but heck, every time I watch this video I just want to kidnap them. They are amazing. I used to be annoyed that they won rookie awards over B1A4, but seriously, they deserve it, too. They’re a freaking great band. I love them, and I LOVE this song. And video. And dance and everything ♥

Jokwon’s “I’m Da One”

LOL. This music video and everything is just so….Jokwon. This is actually hsi solo debut, and it’s freaking amazing. The song and video are both so quirky and fun and hilarious and full of Jokwon’s diva style. He’s amazing, guys. Don’t judge him because he’s fabulous. The plot is freaking funny, too. All about how awesome he is and such. I was annoyed at the long plot break in the middle of the awesome song, but it was funny enough in the end that I forgave him. The dance is really high-energy and fun, and I’m so glad this boy finally gets to dance onstage. He’s so good, but 2AM only ever sings ballads, so he can only show off his dancing talents in ridiculous girl group dance covers. Now he gets to dance away in the spotlight, and I’m happy for him. And I LOOOOVE this song. It’s amazing. And so Jokwon. I will sing it forever. Makes me smile so much every time XD

Holy craaaaaap! This post was way longer than I anticipated. Who knew how many comebacks there’d been while I was away? O_O I mean, I kept track of them all, but it really added up in the end. I’m forever disappointed that I didn’t get to truly review any of these, but hey, that’s life. So busy still! The past month or so has been chock-full of awesome comebacks (and debuts, but that’s for another post), and it kept me super happy, even through exams and all that. Music’s totally my go-to thing when I’m stressed, so it was a blessing.

In other news, I’m spending all my money on music *-* Oh noes. Ah well, YOLO! 😀 (That is the first time I’ve ever said that. HA!)

Support these bands, people! Buy their music, it’s how they survive! Love them a lot! Above bands, fighting!

PS-SUJU COMEBACK GUYS. My summer just got that much better ♥♥♥♥ (My babiesssssss!)

SotD-B1A4’s “Baby Goodnight”

Asdfnkslkdl;sdfk YAYYYYYYYY B1A4 comeback!!!! (That’s how I felt when I learned they were coming out with a repackaged album.) I am seriously SO happy with this comeback. This song and dance and music video are amazing, and so B1A4. This is the style I was missing with “Ignition”. I am now a very, very happy BANA. :’D

Before this song came out, the boys each released individual teaser videos of them laying in bed and sending a goodnight message to their “girlfriends”. They were super sweet and cute and adorable, but I got the feeling that their comeback was going to be something balladsy because of it. BOY was I wrong. Just look at this amazing music video:

OMG THE CUTENESS IS OVERWHELMING. All of my B1A4 feels are rushing back just after they’ve started to fade after their last album. I never expected this video after they made such a dramatic change in “Baby I’m Sorry”, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It has a certain ridiculous “Beautiful Target” feel to it, which is awesome because I LOVE “Beautiful Target”, but it also has some new and awesome factors. It also has a very different meaning to it.

To be honest, when I first heard this song, I assumed it meant something else. I saw the lyrics, and my assumption was that it was about a guy who just wanted to go out dancing but his girlfriend didn’t like it when he did, so he was going secretly without her knowing when she slept. You know, innocent, B1A4-esque stuff. Maybe I’m too innocent, but look at the translation here. Could it not be interpreted that way? Anyways, I changed my mind a little when I saw the video. It appears that they really are planning on lying to their girlfriend (just this once) to party and maybe do a little bit of casual cheating. Nothing serious; just some meeting of girls at the club. It’s nothing compared to Teen Top’s unfaithfulness in “Don’t Spray Perfume,” but still, shame on you boys! (I still like my interpretation better.)

Gotta say, I was slightly disappointed at the lack of terrible B1A4-style Engrish in this song. Honestly, sometimes Engrish makes a song. There was Baro’s English lines at the beginning, which were a little heavily accented (but super cute), and quite a bit of English otherwise, but it’s all perfectly fine. It seems that B1A4 didn’t have enough “dancing party time” in “Baby I’m Sorry”, because this song’s chorus is all about “dancing, dancing, dancing in the moonlight.” Hahaha. I love these boys and their epic song-writing skills. (On that same note, this song was composed by Jinyoung and written by Baro and Jinyoung. They are amazing.)

Moving on to the video! How adorably ridiculous is it??? These boys make me squee so much. As soon as they started dancing I was dead. The Western clothes, the set, their adorable faces…love. I seriously had to stop the video and flop on my bed for a few seconds, weeping and laughing my head off. Feelings overload. The video matches the song perfectly; it’s about them (specifically CNU) getting calls from the girlfriend, and them telling her to go to bed and goodnight, see you tomorrow! And they go off to a strange Western town, where they dance and shop and flirt with girls that are not their girlfriends. They’re very charming and cute as the girls practically flock to dance with them. CNU manages to win over one of the girls, which is not his girlfriend. For shame! But it’s all in fun as they dance together and flirt harmlessly. In the end, they go home, and it turns out that the girlfriend has, in fact, not been in bed as she said, but out with another guy. HOW DARE SHE DO THAT TO–oh wait.

Anyways, the whole thing is very cute and light-hearted, and while I would normally despise a music video about cheating and lying, and call them scumbags, they manage to pull it off without so much as a complaint. They’re just so cute and innocent! (OMG how cute does Gongchannie look in his shorts and poncho and cowboy hat and boots??? *weeps again*) You’ve escaped my wrath this time, boys! Be careful >.<

The dance, as mentioned before, is just too adorably dorky for my own good. I am a total sucker for embarrassingly stupid and awesome dances, so they easily won me over with their whatever-it-is. I am dying. Especially their trying-to-look-sexy-but-still-too-lame-and-cute little hip thrusts in the chorus. HAHA XD It has a sort of line-dance flair to it, to match their Western theme, and it’s just too great. Nothing crazy hard or anything; just simple, cute, cheesy moves. Something I’d love to learn one day, because it’s so fun and relatively easy. And because it’s B1A4 and I adore them. 

Moving on to LOOKS! As always, I love it. I already talked about how much I freaking love the Western outfits, but actually every single outfit int his video is great. Their stylists are awesome. Baro and Gongchan have re-traded hair colours, which I have to say I prefer over a blonde-Chan. (I just thought it looked weird on our maknae, okay?) I’m super happy that CNU’s finally ditched his long hair (it’s still longer than the others’, but I like it now).  Everyone just has basic haircuts, but they all look fantastic. Their faces also. Just sayin’. The sets are really bright and fun and colourful, and I love those also. Overall, a really perfectly styled music video (I can say nothing bad about B1A4! CAN’T!)

Um um um I feel like I missed something. But oh well. I’ll just wrap this up because I have many things to do ;_; Members time! Whooo~! Leader and composer extraordinaire Jinyoung at 0:36. Vocalist CNU at 0:51 and 2:47. Lead singer Sandeul at 1:23 and 3:03. Rapper Baro at 1:33 and 2:31. Maknae Gongchan at 1:56. I’m too lazy to find more times for y’all. Sorry.

Okay, I really have to go write some emails now. Needless to say, I am in looooove witht his song and I’m dying trying to decide whether to buy this repackaged album or the original Ignition album. They both come with super-cool stuff! But which is cooler?? The life of a fangirl. 

In other news, there was recently a k-pop concert in San Francisco or something. I get excited when K-pop Artists are on the same CONTINENT as me. And San Francisco is freaking a million hours away. (It’s actually 39 hours. Thirty-freaking-nine!) GUYS! CANADA EXISTS TOO. (*sob sob sob*) I digress.

So yeah. Support B1A4! Love them to death, like me! Eeeee! ♥♥♥♥ B1A4 fighting!
