Kpopalypse roundup – new k-pop releases 13/5/2019

It’s time once again for Kpopalypse roundup!  Let’s take a look at this week’s new releases!

TS Entertainment couldn’t even give Hyosung a good couch to lie on. Lying down on those wooden-backed antique seats really fucking hurts.  Stingy cunts!

Oh My Girl – The Fifth Season (SSFWL)

It could have spent a little more time rocking, but it’s still reasonably good… I guess.  Maybe it’ll grow on me.

Momoland & Erik – Love Is Only You

Yeah don’t get excited it’s one of those “between real songs” songs that these groups put out just to keep their name alive.

Eric Nam – Runaway

It’s actually not too bad.  His management should really get their shit together and agree to my interview requests.

Woohyun ft. Junoflo – Hold On Me

Some great backings but not much going on over the top unfortunately.

Xiumin – You

Oh dear, what is this shit.

Taeyeon – Voice

Some overblown 80s mid-tempo power ballad thing, it’s not any worse than Katy Perry or whatever bullshit.

Park Hyo Shin – Goodbye

Goodbye to you too, don’t come back.

Henry – Untitled Love Song

If you can’t even think up a name for it maybe that’s a warning sign that you have no ideas and you probably should just scrap it.

NC.A – Awesome Breeze


WayV – Take Off

Some Chinese NCT member does a thing.  Oh wait I’m Kpopalypse so I don’t care, that’s good.

Lof! ft. Kim Eunbi – Washed

Yes it really is meant to sound like this.  I’m pretty sure.

OTOT – Start Me Up

I miss when both computer games and music used to sound like this.

Ha Yea Song – Your Regards

Same old shit.

N.Flying – Leave It

What’s that little amplifier doing right up the front of the stage.  Aren’t they worried that they’ll trip over?  OH&S compliance, please.

Lim Jimin – Loveholic

Not every 80s throwback is good.

Stray Kids – Mixtape #4


OLNL – Oyeah

Stop wearing bandanas, Koreans.  You look like you need to go back to the $2 gift shop and get a refund.

Sunday Off – Space Boy

Why is the space boy wearing JYP’s plastic boxer shorts.  This video needs to be 19+.

D.Hong ft Jin Ho Sung – Feeling

Why is there a random girl in this video.  Oh that’s right, this is basically porn pretending to be a song.

Yu Seung Woo – Still Here

Gosh not for long, after listening to the first few seconds of this I think I have somewhere to be.

JuniorChef ft Young Coco – Tsugi

Terrible trap stuff but at least it’s confined to its own song and isn’t shitting up some pop song.

Soyoung Um – Very Very Good

A moshing beat that isn’t given enough prominence.  Also could use a bit of double-kick.  Just a little oomph would have gotten this over the line.

Yang Da Il – Dreams

I have dreams that one day people stop making music like this.

Choyoung – What U Wanna

Lots of staring into space looking bored here.

Tagger – Bit

Do you think that he doesn’t know how to spell “beat” and someone decided not to correct him because this song doesn’t have one?

Han Damhee – Life Is

This is more like it.  The trot sure is kicking ass so far this year – or maybe it’s just everything else that’s gone to shit.



When doing research for my most recent music theory post, I noticed that typing “white noise” into the YouTube search bar brought up a ton of ten-hour long white noise videos with really clickbaity titles.  So I thought I’d make my own.  Hopefully this video of “blackpinkwhite noise” helps you with achieving your life goals, or just getting a good night’s rest, but it probably won’t.

That’s all for this week – Kpopalypse roundup returns next week!

  1. nice to see the positive note on OhMyGirl – SSFWL, I agree and wish the instrumental version mp3 got mixed with even more rock

    if I had to recommend one bside from OhMyGirl’s Full Album, it’d be Crime Scene

  2. I use “white noise” or raining sounds videos to sleep because my family is so fucking loud in the mornings that I need something to block their constant screeching and clanking of pots and pans

    But wtf is that thumbnail 😂 I also hate white noise that sounds really harsh like that video

  3. Fap police public service announcement: NC.A’s new MV is now also available as NC.A version. Even though I didn’t mind Lee Suji in the other version, she’s a beauty.
