It’s time for the last clearing house post of 2018! Let’s take a look at some more songs that didn’t get a shitty one-line review from Kpopalypse during the year!
SHIT I FORGOT ABOUT
Day6 – Days Gone By
Day6 go for keyboard-based 80s rock style and have the song of their career. It’s not as good as similar more electro-pop versions of the same type of thing that have come out in k-pop this year, so don’t get too excited because it’s definitely not going to bump anything out of the top 30, but it’s definitely a big step in a good direction.
Musky – I’m Leaving You Now
It’s boring. There, I hope that was worth the wait.
TVXQ – Truth
Nothing to write home about. I guess people gonna be mad for another year that the “culturally relevant” TVXQ can’t seem to make any Kpopalypse list lately, good or bad.
Hitchhiker ft. Zin – 4 Lines
Completely brainless, which is kind of what you want from Hitchhiker.
Blue Lamb – Wolf
Too much lamb, not enough wolf.
Jiyeon – One Day
At least MBK never gave her anything like this.
CZA – Persona
A terrifying expose into furry life. Don’t do it, kids!
Boramiyu – Like Or Love
Where’s the third option – hate?
So Soo Bin – I Wish You Well
Can the music video technically be called a “Story version” if nothing actually happens?
Andy – Fall In Love
Nice guitar work but the song is too boring and like everything else for me to care.
75 & Gracie – Ggaddak
Contains required levels of horse content, not much of a song though.
Gogang – The Night
This song takes some weird turns that nearly save it, but it’s just too slow and dull in the end.
Dindin ft. Hanhae & Greg – Dindin Is Dindin
Dindin’s boring song is Dindind’s boring song.
Lee Hyun – Let’s Stop Getting Hurt Anymore
Sounds like a plan. I recommend not listening to this song as step one.
Ku One Chan ft. Baek Yerin – How Did You
Not sure why I even bothered with these clearing house posts, it’s generally been a total waste of time, too many songs like this. I hope it kept someone happy though.
BULLSHIT CHRISTMAS SONGS THAT WERE TOO LATE FOR THE BULLSHIT CHRISTMAS SONGS POST
Somdef ft. ph1 – Wait
Korea’s hip-hoppers aren’t too cool to do crappy Christmas ballads.
Epik High – No More Christmas
It’s not just the yolo crowd either – even the old-school ones are getting in on the action.
Hyolyn – Christmas Day
Yeah er, leave the songwriting to the pros, Hyolyn.
That’s the last of the clearing house posts for 2018! If you’re fave didn’t make it in – stiff shit! Any songs that come out from here on will be considered 2019 songs by Kpopalypse and eligible for those lists instead. Have a safe and softly-wrapped new year, everyone!
