Kpopalypse roundup is back! Let’s check out this week’s new releases!
Gfriend – Fingertip
Gfriend finally throw off their “debut SNSD sound” shackles for good.
Taeyeon – Fine
Poor Taeyeon, breaking down emotionally two thirds of the way through the song because she just can’t handle singing the utter trash SM makes her perform over and over. Somebody please help her.
Victon – Eyez Eyez
Sounds more like they’re singing “Ice Ice Baby” to me, which I’m sure isn’t an accident as they also quote Snoop Dogg which just doesn’t fit with this music.
Gugudan – A Girl Like Me
A lot of the girl group comebacks lately are actually quite good. Maybe we’re finally seeing a significant quality lift overall from previous years? Maybe back to 2012 levels? Remains to be seen.
Day6 – How Can I Say
It’s not bad I guess, although this is a group who are definitely not interested in winning the war of loudness for some reason, my copy of this is quiet af.
Code Kunst ft G.Soul, Tablo – Fire Water
Code Cunt’s new song is a real cunt and he also sounds like a cunt. He should probably also disappear up one.
Joohee – She’s Mine
Like Puer Kim’s “Pearls” but Joohee really need to work on her boob presentation to compete with that, as well as her crap English usage.
Blanc7 – Yeah
This is like Fiestar’s “Apple Pie” with everything throwing into a computer program that randomises everything until all the good parts are removed.
Ovan – Girl, You Deserved It
Judging by the title this is clearly a song for scummy rapists to play to their victims to make them feel extra shitty. Support female empowerment by not listening to this.
Ovan – Virgin Love
De La Soul’s first album is considered a classic these days but that’s only because hip-hop is so shit now. It was considered a fucking shitty joke back then and so would this have been.
Boy Wonda ft Andup, Lobsta – Gimme That
The use of sound here is so incompetent that it’s almost good by accident. Another song that Throbbing Gristle could have recorded on an off-day.
Live ft. Dean – Know Me
These idiots. I mean, really. How long are people going to swindle k-pop fans with this sort of thing.
Palgou – Black Out
Don’t know why this is a Korean artist but all in English with perfect pronunciation. Also don’t know why it’s got cool 80s synths but also sucks ass.
Pieta – Island
Penomenco – Went Too Far
They went too far when they were taking the journey to the recording studio to record this trash.
Min Chae – Can’t You Hear Me
Actually no, not really. You might want to speak up a bit you mumbling balladeering fucking mole.
Rare Potato – Starlit Night
It has softly strummed acoustic guitar, kill it.
Ra.D – Look Into Your Eyes
Just a heads up for all you young people not experienced in relationships – “look into your eyes” is a phrase that only sex creeps say in real life. If you ever hear someone say that to you – or sing this song – run a fucking mile, preferably while blowing a whistle and spraying a can of mace behind you. You’ll thank me later.
K.A.R.D – Don’t Recall (Hidden Version)
Wow this English version sounds great, although I still can’t understand the words for some reason. At least the music is decent this time however, I wonder what changed.
That’s all for this week’s roundup – more next week!
